BLEU TONNERRE "Hepta Brontai" | Faust (1926) | Music Video
The music video for Bleu Tonnerre’s “Hepa Brontai” is a stunning and haunting visual journey that immerses the viewer in the surreal and otherworldly atmosphere of Faust (1926). Drawing on lyrics from the Book of Revelation (sung in Greek), the video creates a sense of foreboding and apocalyptic dread that perfectly complements the band’s powerful and evocative music.
The video makes use of footage from the 1926 film Faust, creating a connection between the band’s music and the classic story of a man’s descent into darkness and his eventual pact with the devil. The black and white footage adds to the eerie and unsettling tone of the video, creating a sense of timelessness and mystery that draws the viewer in.
As the music begins, the video takes us on a journey through a world of terrifying and awe-inspiring imagery. We see fiery skies, thunderstorms, and strange, otherworldly landscapes that seem to be ripped from the pages of the Book of Revelation.
As the song progresses, we see glimpses of biblical figures such as angels and demons, as well as scenes of destruction and chaos. The music’s driving beat and haunting melody create a sense of urgency and impending doom, making the viewer feel as though they are witnessing the end of the world.
The footage from “Faust” becomes increasingly surreal and abstract as the song reaches its climax, with images of swirling smoke, cascading waterfalls, and shifting landscapes creating a sense of disorientation and awe. The final shot is a close-up of Mephisto eerily turning his head slowly towards the camera, as the music fades to silence.
Overall, the music video for “Hepa Brontai” is a masterful and mesmerizing interpretation of Bleu Tonnerre’s intense and prophetic music. Combining imagery from the Book of Revelation and the classic film “Faust,” the video creates a sense of mystery and wonder that will stay with viewers long after the final notes have faded away.

Σφράγισον ἃ ἐλάλησαν αἱ ἑπτὰ βρονταί,
καὶ μὴ αὐτὰ γράψῃς
Καὶ ὁ ἄγγελος, ὃν εἶδον ἑστῶτα
ἐπὶ τῆς θαλάσσης καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς,
ἦρεν τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ τὴν δεξιὰν εἰς τὸν οὐρανόν,
καὶ ὤμοσεν ἐν τῷ ζῶντι εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων,
Σφράγισον ἃ ἐλάλησαν αἱ ἑπτὰ βρονταί,
αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων,
Καὶ ἡ φωνὴ ἣν ἤκουσα ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ,
πάλιν λαλοῦσαν μετ’ ἐμοῦ καὶ λέγουσαν
Ὕπαγε λάβε τὸ βιβλίον
τὸ ἠνεῳγμένον ἐν τῇ χειρὶ τοῦ ἀγγέλου
