Who knew ferris wheels could be made to look so metal? Apparently visionary director Patric Ullaeus did when he created the video for In Flames‘ “Deliver Us.” Filmed in the band’s hometown, the giant ferris wheel lies in Kanaltorget, which is the main square in the city of Gothenburg.
Singer Anders Friden said “We wanted to do something special with Gothenburg as the background since we are from here. We wanted to show Gothenburg’s scenery because it has been a scenery for our lives.” Guitarist Bjorn Gelotte guides us around the set, explaining what will be going on in the video. I can’t help but notice he seems a bit apprehensive about the idea of heights and enclosed spaces.Now every time I ride a ferris wheel, I’ll wish In Flames was with me.
“Deliver Us” comes from In Flames’ newest release, “Sounds Of A Playground Fading” which is due June 21 on Century Media.
