Children Of Bodom Share Animated Video For ‘Hexed’

Children of Bodom have shared a new music video for their latest single “Hexed.”

The clip was made by RMIT University in Australia over the course of 15 weeks, with producers Aaron McLoughlin and Simon Norton spending around 3000 hours with their team to create the video.

Speaking about the video, McLoughlin said “As always, we like to come up with something that suits what the band is all about, so we drew inspiration from the song lyrics as well as the monochromatic imagery found in Children of Bodom’s videos and album art. We decided a black-and-white horror film would be cool — set on a lake, of course! And we had to include a Roy cameo appearance, obviously!”

Children of Bodom bassist Henkka Seppälä added: “It’s such a cool thing to have a video of one my favorite tracks of the album. And the fact it’s made by Aaron and his 25 students in Australia is even cooler. The black-and-white calm mood suits perfectly to this not-so-calm song. The lake and its reflection makes a perfect ending for it.”

Watch the video below.

Children of Bodom released their latest album, Hexed, earlier this year.
