Avatar have premiered the short film, Legend Of Avatar Country: A Metal Odyssey. The forty-four-minute featurette was inspired by the band’s latest effort, 2018’s Avatar Country. Initially, these Swedish circus metallers launched a crowdfunding campaign via Kickstarter, where their goal was reached within ninety minutes.
Frontman Johannes Eckerström comments:
“We are in the middle of creating something very special. I think people have come to understand that we are all about reincarnating as a new monster every time we put something new out. While we’re doing this we want to make sure to give Avatar Country all the proper send offs we can think of. It was all such a unique thing to do and it was the concept that proved to us that everything is possible and that our fans are just as crazy as we are. It will be fun to watch a flick with them.”
