The Battle of Largs

The Largs Viking Festival is a yearly event held in the town of Largs on the west coast of Scotland. It is a week long event and celebrates Viking heritage, with live music, arts and crafts and historical re-enactments. The event culminates with the re-enactment of the 1263 Battle of Largs followed by the burning of a longship and ending with a spectacular fireworks display at the Pencil Monument.

I filmed this on an ageing Panasonic MiniDV camcorder and edited it with Corel VideoStudio 11 Plus software. I hope you enjoy it 🙂



Amebix – Knights of The Black Sun

I must admit, I’d never heard of Amebix until about a year ago. I must have followed a link on the interwebs (as you do) and discovered that the band had just released their first album in 24 years – which got me interested enough to check them out. I’m glad I did. The album, Sonic Mass, is a good listen for those of you who like a more ‘punk’ style of metal (think Killing Joke). The first single released from the album is entitled ‘Knights of The Black Sun’ and is, in my opinion, the best song from the album. An official video accompanies the track and features some great 3D rendered scenes and environments that have been created by Andy (Leffer) Lefton that are visual depictions of the song’s lyrical content. It’s well worth watching and truly deserves to be classed as ‘Epic’.
