Supine Orchestra are back with a jaunty little ode to Norwegian black metal. Watch it here today!

Acoustic folk music might not necessarily be to your liking if you're a skate punk raised on a diet of the Dead Kennedys and DOA, but Coventry's Supine Orchestra are always worth a listen.

Especially as their lyrics are consistently witty, intelligent and often pretty cutting, as clearly demonstrated by their latest offering Black Funky Metal.

Described on that FaceBook thing as an "ode to the Norwegian Black Metal scene", the song, the duo report, comes complete with words about "burning churches, murder, suicide and the odd dead bird".

"Most of this stuff actually happened," they note, adding that "a kota is a wooden Scandinavian house-type-thing".


We did.
