MOVING PICTURES! (from PRAY FOR LOCUST)

This Swedish band released their debut album SWARM in August 2010 on a label called Supernova Records (it’s selling as a CD here, as well as digitally on iTunes and Amazon mp3). I haven’t heard the album, but the band just released their official video for a song from the album called “Hang A Traitor”, so I’ve heard that.

 

Stylistically, the music is a mix of thrash and hardcore. I liked the wild, swarming, face-breaking riffs and rhythms, though I’m not yet sold on the vocals. Maybe they’ll grow on me. But the song overall is a high-energy barrage of musical mayhem, and I really liked the way the video caught that feel on film.

 

It’s a club scene, with the band playing on the floor and a mosh pit in action, and the lighting and editing are excellent. Bodies and faces move from shadow into light, popping in and out of visibility. Shots rapidly fade in and out, frames are sometimes speeded up or slowed down, and the action is caught from dozens of camera angles (including cool shots down the neck of guitars and bass from cameras mounted on the headstocks).

 

This was shot in 2011 by TDP Art Studios in Stockholm and was edited by André Sebastie. Excellent work.

"Imorgon bär det av till gratisfestivalen Trästock i Skellefteå. Det finns ett antal intressanta band jag ska hålla ögonen på men huvudakten för min del är Stockholmsbaserade Pray for Locust som när de spelade i Umeå i december förra året spöade skiten ur de flesta svenska band jag har sett så det ska bli väldigt intressant att se de igen".
