The enigmatic French band MÜTTERLEIN recently released a disturbing video clip for the track "Black Dog", a pure sonic urban ritual taken from their sinister first full-length "Orphans Of The Black Sun", released by Sundust Records a few weeks ago...
The video is available on Youtube :
MÜTTERLEIN mastermind, Marion Leclercq, explains the concept behind “Black Dog” :
"I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat." This is how Winston Churchill's spoke to the crowd in his first speech on 13 May 1940, in the first year of World War II. My Black dog is melancholy personified, in reference to how Churchill or even Styron used to talk so well about their depressive tendency and their own personnal struggle. To me, looking at him in the eye is the greatest strenght because this heavy melancholy is as much a burdensome weight as the engine of all creativity."
The video is directed by Aimée Lügenmund / A Katet Company.
