Children Of Bodom Release Animated Music Video For “Hexed”


Children Of Bodom have launched the below animated music video for their track “Hexed“. The clip was put together by a team of students at the The Royal Melbourne Institute Of Technology in Australia with Aaron McLoughlin & Simon Norton producing. McLoughlin commented of the clip:

“As always, we like to come up with something that suits what the band is all about, so we drew inspiration from the song lyrics as well as the monochromatic imagery found in Children of Bodom’s videos and album art. We decided a black and white horror film would be cool – set on a lake, of course!

And we had to include a Roy cameo appearance, obviously! Although ‘Hexed‘ is a fast track, it’s also particularly measured in the way it plays out over the 5-minute duration, so part of the fun was crafting a cinematic narrative that flows with the amazing technical precision of the music.

The animation students at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia are some of the most talented rising stars in the world, and I think they’ve done a terrific job on this project. Animating metal videos is such a fun thing to do at university, and the team felt very honoured creating this film for Children of Bodom.”

The band’s bassist Henkka T. Blacksmith also discussed the video, which took some 15 weeks to create:

“It’s such a cool thing to have a video of one my favourite tracks of the album. And the fact it’s made by Aaron and his 25 students in Australia is even cooler. The black and white calm mood suits perfectly to this not-so-calm song. The lake and it’s reflection makes a perfect ending for it.”
