Hjelvik (Ex-Kvelertak) Debut “North Tsar” Music Video


Hjelvik, the new solo band of former Kvelertak frontman Erlend Hjelvik, has launched a Grupa13 directed music video for his debut single, “North Tsar“. Erlend himself commented of this first taste of his project:

“It feels great to finally give people the first taste of what’s to come with this awesome video for “North Tsar” that the talented guys at Grupa13 created for me! It was a cool experience, the day corona-restrictions lifted, I took the first flight from Norway to Poland and we shot the whole video in one day in a Viking village called Jomsborg.

Grupa13 did an excellent job with their team including well-trained Viking reenactors, an amazing SFX crew and even brought in wolves and a huge raven. It was an intense and efficient shoot. It felt crazy to be standing in the middle of a Viking battle while performing my song, especially since the village was open to tourists who appeared midway through to stand there, gawk and take selfie’s…making the experience slightly more bizarre! Nonetheless, I had a great time and I’m extremely pleased with the result!”

The video comes in both censored and uncensored formats, with the latter due to premiere tomorrow, September 19th. You can find them below. Nuclear Blast have slated a November 20th release date for Hjelvik‘s debut album, “Welcome To Hel“. Pre-orders for it are up here.
