Black Metal

During the 80’s the first wave of Black Metal referring bands like Venom and Bathory took place. The type of music and image was taken one step further in Norway and it was here that the genre became distinct, with the music and corpse paint as a characteristic element.  The music has not gotten the best of reputations because of its antichristian lyrics and ideology.

We gathered inspiration from this controversial genre and decided to see it from a theatrical perspective.

I was introduced to the group Behemoth by a friend and got enthusiastic about their visual image in both videos and pics and decided to do a session in the same spirit.

We had so much fun taking these photos and we all really worked our asses off. I, Tallee, did the makeup, Amanda Martinez the styling with clothes from Independent Kostym, Jörgen Lundh immortalized the occasion and Mattias Savage put on the final touch with his graphic designer skills.
