Norway's Enslaved recently traveled to Gothenburg, Sweden to work with Revolver Film Company director Patric Ullaeus (Dimmu Borgir) to shoot a video for "The Watcher," a track off the group's recent release, Vertebrae. The group comments: "When we got the chance to work with Patric and Revolver, we grasped it with all ten hands. His works are very impressive. We were first exposed to him through Dimmu's latest video - the whole thing was very professional and remained 'tasty' within the fantasy framework. Our previous videos have been do-it-yourself and we have never worked with special effects on such a high level before. The video is built upon a dual development: the band performing the song in parallel with a story line. The story is based upon [lead singer/bassist] Grutle's lyrics for 'The Watcher' and the story is written out in a co-operation between Grutle and [guitarist/songwriter] Ivar [Bjørnson] from the band, and director Patric Ullaeus. Without spoiling the surprise, the video story follows the lines of the lyrics – the individual's struggle for truth and liberation, about revealing the real chains of existence and breaking them."
