Sludge 'Blacksmith' by Kenneth Karlstad
This is a problematic and disturbing video for Heavyweight Records' newest recruits Sludge by Norwegian director Kenneth Karlstad.
We are introduced to Sludge as the leader of an Eastern Europe Cold War-esque extremist gang – complete with skinhead rituals and a very suspect lemonade drink – whose mission is to control and manipulate his disciples with his music. Trouble is, despite obvious comedic elements, there is really no way of knowing that isn't the real Sludge.
With the worrying rise of the Far Right across Europe, seems like a strange choice for subject matter for a proper music video.
