Switzerland’s industrial black metal force Samael are back with a brand new music video for their cover version of The Beatles Helter Skelter.
On the occasion of the 53rd anniversary of the release of Helter Skelter Samael celebrates the legacy of the band and the birth of heavy metal. The song originally appeared on their latest album, Hegemony.
On Helter Skelter the Industrial formation travels way back to the end of the 60s, examining the dark sides of technology and spirituality, including numerous references to the song’s original time frame. With whispering screams, metallic drums, shredding guitar play and targeted string inserts, Samael create a majestic yet intimidating, cuttingly clear soundscape that presents the legendary The Beatles composition in a whole new light while still staying true to its roots.
