Behind the scene, making of The Carburetors music video “”LORDS OF THUNDER” (feat. Shagrath)

Fast Forward Rock’n’Roll,  45 degrees celsius, 99,9% air humidity, and so many spotlights the power consumption could make a small village go dark. That’s what met me when entering the scene of the Carburetors shooting their new video.

I was asked to shoot some behind the scene shots from the video Lords of thunder. This is one of the new songs from their newly released album Laughing in the face of death. The album is just released, and many have been waiting in anticipation for their new album for a long time now. It’s been awhile since Rock’n’Roll Forever, which was their previous album, released in 2008.

Producer Christian Falch (Gammaglimt As) and the rest of the team shot and put together an awesome end product in this video. I don’t think most people know how much planning, how many GB of raw material, and how much pre-production work that is put into something as “small” as a tree and a half minute video! This wouldn’t be possible without experienced and knowledgeable people.

They shot with a RED 4K camera coupled with a Fujinon 19-90 T2.9. The RED camera shoots in ultra-high definition (3840 x 2160), and the cost is like a nice Porsche.

Fast Forward Rock & Roll !!

One big surprise for many was that Shagrath was performing with the Carburetors in this song, and that’s a really cool addition to this video. Shagrath (Stian Thoresen) is probably best known from the internationally successful Dimmu Borgir. Eddie Guz and Shagrath previously played together in Chrome division where Eddie was the vocalist and Shagrath was playing guitar, so they’re no strangers.

The LD, Odmund Berg didn’t leave any light bulbs at home this day, as the backlighting was massive!
