Black Cobra's 'Crimson Blade' video

|
()

Local sludge-metal duo Black Cobra just released its first video off last year's Invernal. The video for "Crimson Blade," which is mostly based in ominous shadows with snippets of the story flashing along with the beat, was directed by Greg Downing, of San Francisco bands Glitter Wizard and Buffalo Tooth.

Conceptualized by the band and Downing, the video is centered around a man as he "devolves to a previous state of humanity and resorts to cannibalism in a post-apocalyptic world." During filming, the actor Landon Bates accidentally cut himself, so yes, that blood is real.
