Hjelvik (ex-Kvelertak) has premiered a new video for his new song “North Tsar.“ This track is from his new album “Welcome To Hel,” which will be released on November 20.
“It feels great to finally give people the first taste of what’s to come with this awesome video for “North Tsar” that the talented guys at Grupa13 created for me! It was a cool experience, the day corona-restrictions lifted, I took the first flight from Norway to Poland and we shot the whole video in one day in a Viking village called Jomsborg.
Grupa13 did an excellent job with their team including well-trained Viking reenactors, an amazing SFX crew and even brought in wolves and a huge raven. It was an intense and efficient shoot. It felt crazy to be standing in the middle of a Viking battle while performing my song, especially since the village was open to tourists who appeared midway through to stand there, gawk and take selfie’s…making the experience slightly more bizarre! Nonetheless, I had a great time and I’m extremely pleased with the result!”
It’s worth noting that Hjelvik is also planning to release an uncensored version of the “North Tsar” video tomorrow (September 19).
