Swedish thrashers CARNAL FORGE are putting the finishing touches on their video for the song "Numb (The Dead)".
Commented director Owe Lingvall: "The video is based on a story about a rich, upper-class family that abducts children and cages them in their basement just for pleasure — nothing else.
He added, "This video is pushing the boundaries of what [Owe's company] Village Road Film has ever done before in terms of actors, budget and extras."
Check out photos from the video shoot in the "Pics" section of the group's MySpace page.
In other news, CARNAL FORGE has been confirmed for the SWR Barroselas Metalfest XI, set to take place April 24-26 in Barroselas, Portugal.
CARNAL FORGE's latest album, "Testify for My Victims", was released in the U.S. in May via Candlelight Records.
Formed in 1997, CARNAL FORGE released its debut, "Who's Gonna Burn" (War Music), in 1998. After signing with Century Media in early 2001, the band released "Please... Die" later in the year. The band would tour Europe supporting THE HAUNTED and NILE and make the first of several prestigious festival appearances (Linden making his debut with the band at the year's 2000 Decibel festival and Wacken Open Air). "The More You Suffer" (2003) and "Aren't You Dead Yet" (2004) would continue to see the band expand fan and worldwide sales base. Vocalist Jens C. Mortensen would join the band's ranks in late 2004, impressing fans with his strong live performances.
CARNAL FORGE currently features vocalist Jens C. Mortensen, guitarists Jari Kuusisto and Petri Kuusisto, drummer Stefan Westerberg and bassist Lars Linden.
