Swedish avant-garde metal band Avatar have released an official video for “Smells Like A Freakshow”, which comes off their fourth studio album Black Waltz. The Johan Carlen-directed video shows each member of the band playing the role of the tormenter and the tormented, inflicting one horrific pain after another upon themselves. Check it out below.
Frontman Johannes Eckerström states, “The video illustrates inner conflict in an explicit manner, using abuse of unjust power in different contexts. The lyrical themes of downfall, embracing of decadence and failed attempts to escape are pointed out by the fact that ultimately the bad guys win.“
