"EG ER MIN EIGEN FIENDSMANN"
is the birth of a musical and aesthetic genre:
TRUE NORWEGIAN WHITE METAL .
This pilot collaboration between Norwegian artist Morten Traavik and his compatriot
industrial artcore band Himeriksskvadronen (The Heavenly Kingdom Squad) is simultaneously a music video in its own right, part of the gesamtkunstwerk YES/NO and a journey by caterpillar tracks through our own zeitgeist,
where White Knights can appear in many guises: rock stars, the declared insane, terrorists, UN peacekeepers, aid workers, artists, politicians and other interventionists with visions for the world.
Director: Morten Traavik / Cinematography: Carl Dieker /
Text: "Eg er min eigen fiendsmann", poem by Olav Aukrust from the volume "Solrenning (Sunrise)" (1930) /
Music: Himerikssvadronen / Lieutenant Simmswatts - battery / Lieutenant Kybermensch - synth / Captain Stridshode - Noise, guitar / Major Sturmgeist - Vocals, guitar /
