MORK deliver a stunning video for ‘Forført Av Kulden’ to celebrate the release of ‘Dypet’.


Thematically, ‘Forført Av Kulden’ deals with the beguiling force of the cold, often portrayed as an omnipresent character within the world of Black Metal and a look into the natural beauty in death. On the single our protagonist enters a trance-like state to wander the forest and eventually freeze.


The song is also accompanied by a striking video, directed by Trond-Atle Bokerød, which echoes the primordial allure of nature, synonymous with the Black Metal subgenre, whilst exploring the unforgiving winter that is the song’s subject. After a veil of synthesizers are lifted MORK’s signature Black Metal tonalities are revealed for a mid paced rhythm that eventually gives way to Eriksen’s signature vocals and lachrymose lead lines.


Regarding the track Thomas Eriksen had the following to say:

“Forført Av Kulden’About being seduced into the cold hard weather outside by an unknown force. Wandering into the snowstorm at night and ending up freezing to death. It depicts a somewhat glorified theme of death as a beautiful and unavoidable thing.”
