American black metal band Sar Isatum have release a lyric video for the song Chenoo. The song is taken from the band’s forthcoming debut album titled Shurpu which will be released digitally on 17th November 2017.
The video was originally premiered by Decibel Magazine. Writing of the band, “draw their inspiration from outside the usual lyrical themes, eschewing Satan and the cold winds of the north for topics surrounding ancient cultures.”
The band comments in the video. “Chenoo is the second song of the album, it’s a completely different from the first self titled track on the album, it’s a devastating track from beginning to end, Chenoo is about the evil man-eating ice giants of northern Wabanaki legends.
“A Chenoo was once a human being who either became possessed by an evil spirit or committed a terrible crime (especially cannibalism or withholding food from a starving person), causing his heart to turn to ice. In a few legends a human has been successfully rescued from the frozen heart of a Chenoo, but usually once a person has been transformed into a Chenoo, their only escape is death.”
