“‘Roy Nord is a turd’ is the second video clip of the band. The clip was directed by Otto Rivers and includes clips from the films Meute/Il Branco, Mr. Accident, Slaxx, Devil Dog, The Dogs, Rottweiler, Daylight, Prophecy, and American Psycho.
“Roy Nord is the character played by Viggo Mortensen in the film Daylight. He is an absolutely unbearable character whose death is the mirror of his stupidity barely veiled by an immense egocentrism.
The lyrics also refer to the movie Point Break, explaining that Roy Nord would like to ride the wave of success forever but he has none of the intelligence of Bodhi (Patrick Swayze).” (Le Tunnel de l’Enfer)
…For the record…
Le Tunnel de l’Enfer is a fast punk band formed in Lille (France), featuring members from Stupid Karate, Gummo and Supermodel Stitches. They were formed with the idea of paying tribute to the action movies they grew up with. Their first EP was composed and recorded in late 2021, it is a tribute to the movie Daylight. It will be released on January 24th on Minga Records in vinyl and digital format.
Their influences range from fast punk, hardcore, punk-rock and grind. The bands that influence them the most are Limp Wrist, Suicidal Tendencies, NOFX and Coke Bust.
This group is in some ways a product of the Covid-19 pandemic. The songs were composed without any member of the band rehearsing together. Everything was done by messaging and video conference. And this until the recording.
The next step is to compose and record a second EP, paying tribute to another movie.
