RL Grime takes us along for the Void Team’s final mission in video for ‘Valhalla’
With the release of his introductory full-length record, RL Grime has changed the way trap music is defined, stretching the boundaries of what it can be in the process. Void has a story to tell as it takes the listener down into deep, dark, convoluted chasms of space and sound. Shrill sirens sound over hollow, crisp snare hits and sharp hi-hat rolls across 12 tracks as the album winds around a desolate, lifeless landscape.
Void is mysterious, adventurous, and chilling, with the album’s story culminating in the music video for “Valhalla.” The track is a collaborative effort alongside Djemba Djemba, featuring a booming, big room frame and stomping synth layers. The official video depicts gleaming, metallic war-copters, bomber jets and futuristic Humvee tanks all arriving at a huge crater in the middle of a sprawling desert expanse.
As all ammunition is fired directly at the crater, the final moments of the thrilling music video leave the viewer wanting more. A dark void energy is released by a mysterious carrier as mission control frantically tries to connect with the last remaining helicopter pilot after a devastating battle. Ultimately, perhaps it means RL Grime’s Void is just the beginning, and the story will continue to unfold.
