Vattnet Viskar premiere “Colony” video

New Hampshire black metal band Vattnet Viskar have released a music video for “Colony” at Metal Injection. The song will appear on the band’s upcoming sophomore full-length Settler, which is due for release June 16 on Century Media, and which boasts one of the coolest album covers in modern metal (courtesy of visual artist Josh Graham, who previously worked with Neurosis, Jay Z, and more). View the video below.

“I was reading an article about how a colony of ants actually learns faster than Google, which is completely insane,” guitarist and vocalist Nick Thornbury said of “Colony.” “Luckily we had this sort of mathy but still dark sounding song that seemed a perfect match for that concept. I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords.”

The band also revealed the title track to Settler on May 4.

Vattnet Viskar will play a handful dates with Early Graves, then make an appearance at Maryland Deathfest before starting a North American tour later this month. See a list of dates and the artwork and track list for Settler below.
