Black Pope releases extended animation film for demon stomp

Demonic Possession in a small community

Spooky rock’n’roll artist Black Pope has just released a 7 minute animated music video for his track ‘Demon Stomp’. This ambitious video was animated by the artist himself, with backgrounds designed by Cork-based artist Tony Clifford.

The video tells a coming of age story set against the backdrop of demonic possession in a small community. Although the video features an abundance of gore, dark humour and satanic imagery, the artist has described it as a very personal project.

“One of the things people say about the possession genre is that it’s either a subconscious or conscious allegory for men coming to terms with women’s sexuality. I wrote the song when I was around 18 so I’m sure there was an element of that, but I doubled down on it when working on the video to turn it into a Black Pope origin story.”

The track was recorded in Monique Studios in Cork, Ireland with Grammy-nominated producer Cian Riordan and is the third single from Black Pope’s upcoming EP “Music for Girls Vol. I”, which is set for a summer release.
