Canadian avantgarde metallers Voivod have shared a new video. It is their second off the latest Target Earth album and can now be viewed here. The video was directed by Syl Disjonk, known for his short horror film, Ethereal Chrysalis. The director of photography was JP Bernier (Despised Icon). The video originally premiered at Philip H. Anselmo's Housecore Horror Film Festival in October in Austin, Texas. Check out the video for the giant in the woods "Kluskap O'Kom".
Vocalist Denis "Snake" Belanger had this to say about the meaning of Kluskap O'Kom: "Sometimes described as a giant coming out of the woods, sometimes a monster in a lake or sometimes a powerful being that came from the sky, Kluskap is the name for this strange character and O'Kom is the place where he lives. Kluskap is inspired by a legend from a Canadian native tribe called the Micmacs. He once came to earth to kill all the Dinosaurs in order to help the humans to take over the planet. One day Kluskap will come back with another mission to the humans. There are many similarities between the Kluskap story and other legends from tribes all around the globe; stories told of encounters with beings from other worlds. This one is very unique I thought. So here it is; Hear the thunder, it is me, coming back! KlusKap O'Kom!"
Voivod also released a 7" for the song. The 7" LP features artwork from the drummer Michael "Away" Langevin, and is limited to 1000 copies worldwide. The b-side features a live version of "Kluskap O'Kom" recorded in Berlin on the band's last European headlining tour. The single comes in black, grey and black and white swirl colored vinyl and can be purchased here.
