GOLLUM Release “Blacksmith (Summoning Wrath)” Video

July 20th, 2010

North Carolina experimental extreme metal troupe GOLLUM are pleased to unleash their latest video for “Blacksmith (Summoning Wrath),” which comes off the band’s critically-acclaimed The Core full-length released via Rotten Records last spring. The video was shot in the summer of 2009 in the band’s hometown of Wilmington. The band performance portion was shot in a studio and later cropped and transformed into abstract CGI while the “movie” portion was filmed in a welding warehouse to capture a blacksmith at work.   Commented the band of the video’s concept: “The concept for the ‘Blacksmith (Summoning Wrath)’ video was to have this visually experimental and abstract CGI background during our performance intertwined with a ‘movie’ depicting a blacksmith forging a battle-ready sword. With the limited resources and good dedicated friends that know how to film and use video software helping out, we think we accomplished that vision, even on such a slim budget!”

In related news, GOLLUM recently announced their appearance on the August 3rd stop of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival in Raleigh, North Carolina. This marks the second year in a row GOLLUM find themselves on the bill for the prestigious event. “We are thrilled to be invited back a for the second year in a row,” said the band. “Last year, West Palm Beach, Florida was so surreal and unbelievable! We really look forward to playing on the Jager stage at the Mayhem Festival again this year; this time in front of our home state crowd in Raleigh! Thanks to Jagermeister! We are currently planning a fall tour and are in pre-production for the our next record.”
