Code – Glimlight Tourist

This song is from the new album Augur Nox, released earlier this month by one of Britain’s excellent black metal bands. Code have released three original studio albums and a compilation album since they formed in 2002. The video appeals to me because it’s black metal, which is one of the tastiest flavours in music, and because of its minimalist approach. The orange-red glow of a fire, the sparks shooting into the darkness, and almost nothing in the way of props or special effects – that’s all it takes to set the visual mood for this really good song.

About ChristopherMammal

I've made it to Mammal. I still hope to be classified as Human one day. Meanwhile I have evolved enough to recognise different types of music as well as the shrieks of certain vervet monkeys who are known for their scurrilous behaviour in the proximity of unguarded bananas.
