Samael – Black Supremacy: A Video Breakdown
I do not like it, Samael. I do not like green eggs and kale.
Depending on the religion, Samael is usually considered either the Angel of Death or a demon. Oh, and it’s also a black metal/industrial metal band that’s been kicking around since 1988. Admittedly, I don’t really know much about Samael. Sure, I know the name and I’ve listened to a song before, but it’s always been an “in one ear and out the other” sort of situation. Heck, I just found out they were Swiss. I don’t think I’ve ever come across a Samael fan or seen one of their shirts in the wild, but they obviously have an audience if they’ve been playing for almost thirty years. Maybe their new song will make you a fan. Or maybe it will make you cringe like you’ve never cringed before.
0:08: Illuminati confirmed.
0:13: Evil techno dance party also confirmed.
0:22: I’m not sure what’s happening, but it is definitely happening.
0:27: A cold nose means he’s healthy.
0:31: TIL that Samael’s vocalist is part goat.
0:36: And maybe a dash of Wayne Static.
0:43: You can also find him in the new book “The Big Book Of Swiss Smiles”.
0:48: How does he managed to spend so much time grooming and still look like a mess?
0:54: Uh oh. I don’t like where this is going.
1:01: Okay, now I know why they were just filming his mouth.
1:09: Today is the day of misinterpreting song meanings.
1:17: I didn’t know Al Jolson was in Samael.
1:22: If he says “Mammy!” I’m out of here.
1:28: Is C. Thomas Howell on drums too?
1:36: Anyone else noticing the subliminal Tri-Force symbol quickly popping up in the video.
1:42: Is this really a Ganon propaganda video?
1:50: Actual sentence in the description: “Frighteningly brutal, a colorless bouquet from the withered flowers of BEHEMOTH and DIMMU BORGIR!”
1:55: I know what those words mean, but that sentence doesn’t make sense.
2:06: This whole video was just a prank by the other band members. They told him it was regular moisturizer in the bottle.
2:13: Getting a heavy “Rowdy” Roddy Piper vibe right now.
2:24: Director: “For this video, you’re going to rub black paint all over your body.”
2:30: Vocalist: “Then what?”
2:36: Director: “What do you mean ‘then what?’ That’s it!”
2:44: Probably should have the world “KILL” flash in front of a white man covered in black paint.
2:52: Real should be in quotes.
3:03: I’d hate to see the bathtub when he cleaned up.
3:12: Shaking the camera = something is happening.
3:26: Some tiki torch -carrying chode is probably really mad about this song.
3:32: I hope it gets him fired from Little Caesar’s.
3:43: If the vocalist really wanted to, he would have covered his teeth in Black Jack gum.
3:54: Well that was incredibly uncomfortable.
Samael’s new album Hegemony is out on October 13th via Napalm Records.
