Norwegian black metallers KEEP OF KALESSIN, featuring Obsidian C. (a.k.a. Arnt Grønbech, also a touring guitarist for SATYRICON) on guitars/bass/synth, have finished filming a video for one of the songs off their upcoming album, "Armada"."The video was shot 100% green-screen and is directed by Rome Ramsies who is well known for working with bands like SLIPKNOT, MUDVAYNE and SEPULTURA," the band write on their web site. "Rome also worked for several years in Weta Digital during the 'Lord of the Rings' period as well as did the CGI on 'Pitch Black'. We are sure this video will be extraordinary and hit like a sandstorm in the metal scene! Release for the video is set to February 14th." As previously reported, KEEP OF KALESSIN have set a March 27 release date for "Armada". The CD will be released via the Norwegian label Tabu Recordings, a division of Tuba Records. Vyl is playing drums on the album and a new bass player, Wizziac, is being introduced. MAYHEM singer Attila Chisar is doing some additional vocals, but he will not be the frontman anymore. KEEP OF KALESSIN's most recent mini-album, "Reclaim", was released in December 2003 through FaceFront Records. The group's first release since 1999's "Agnen: A Journey through the Dark" (Avantgarde), "Reclaim" has been described as a new milestone in Norwegian black metal by the Norwegian press. "Reclaim" is available in the U.S. through The End mail-order.
