SELVANS - Video Tribute To Late Drummer Jonny Morelli

On the day that their colleague and close friend Jonny Morelli would have reached his 31st birthday had he survived a fatal motor bike accident last year, black/folk metallers Selvans (ex-Draugr) have posted a video tribute to the much respected drummer. Whilst the video uses the track "Lupercale" from Selvans' recently released EP entitled Clangores Plenilunio, the band is very keen to emphasise that this is not a video for the track itself, but it is rather a "sincere tribute to a friend, to his passion, and to his art". The video can be seen below.
Selvans' core members Selvans Haruspex (on keyboards, traditional instruments, vocals and programming) and Sethlans Fulguriator (guitars and bass) explained the ideas and the imagery behind the video, and why it is so representative of Morelli's spirit: "Jonny loved nature. He was always our invaluable guide when we went hiking or out searching for some breathtakingly spectacular settings for photo sessions. The study of ancient Italian paganism and folklore was another of his passions, and this was clearly reflected in own work on tattoos and drawings. This video shows the beautiful wild landscapes that Jonny loved so much, whilst his words, which were written for the song "Lupercale" itself, were transformed into drawings by our friend Davide 'Dartworks - drawstroy"  Mancini, who is also the designer who created the Selvans logo."
