SINFLØD; A BAND, A CULT, A QUASI-RELIGIOUS MYTH?
We want to bring the climate problems closer to people's world of experience, making the intensity tangible.
SINFLØD brings an accusation against the self-destructive behaviour of humanity in the anthropocene — with the aim to evoke a continuous debate about the urgency of this almost irriversible destructiveness.
Looking for a different perspective to spread this pressing story, we connect climate change with the dark symbolism that is leading in the metal music scene.We moved away from the iconography that is so commonly associated with this subject: documentaries, infographics and journalistic approaches.

They are no myths of the future, it is the ongoing reality.
We used our shared fascination for subcultures in the metal scene as visual and substantive inspiration, together with scientific studies – that prove the effects of 'our' human actions on the climate [sources]. This manifests itself in an eventful investigation into a powerful audio-visual language that can convey the penetrating message.
SINFLØD creates a unique position for us to explore the effects of this visual, tangible, inescapable sound, that we will attune to the intended audience.
