PitchBlack, that has just played on the biggest Danish metal festival Copenhell, have finished a video for the track 'You' re fucking below me', that comes from their second album The Devilty. The video has the same visual outline as the cover for The Devilty, which was banned from the German distributor.
"In the video you see an orthodox Jew, an Islamic and a Nazi being killed during a PITCHBLACK concert," says singer Daniel Fonseca about the symbolism and continues: "We have chosen some of the persons that we sing about on the record, trying to show how stupid mankind is behaving. And we' re not to trying to be holy, so I - the singer - are killed as well. The crowd in the video wears white masks which symbolizes that we all equal no matter skin colour, religion and so forth. The stupidity which we see all over the world everyday and where some people thinks they are superior to others and even want to kill other persons seems never-ending. PITCHBLACK want to erase the prejudices - with bloody hands - to stress out our point. As band we do not think that violence is the solution to the evilness in the world - that’s why the singer is also slaughtered in the video. We don’t give the solution for world peace - we just describe it and say that violence is not the solution.”
