Joachim Luetke explains the concept, symbolism, and story behind the video: The Sacrilegious Scorn is mainly a paraphrase on Christianitys core-symbolism and motives.
Such examples are the Roman soldiers gambling over Christs garment, the mockery of St. Michael the Archangel, driving Satan out of Heaven by stepping on him and pointing his sword onto him. Now we see this reversed, when the inaugurated Antichrist is doing that to St. Michael.
I prefer the term Dark Emperor - not Antichrist, for the battle of light and shadow reaches back far beyond Christianity.
We also witness the inauguration of the Dark Emperor in the Temple of the Baphomet, seeing him taking the oath as the new sovereign while celebrating a mockery of the Last Supper. The story culminates in the Dark Emperor showing up in front of his followers, bringing out blessings. The Empire of Darkness is then established.
The overall look of the video is a bow to the legendary, unique style of Roger Corman, especially his adaptation of The Masque of The Red Death, featuring the unforgettable Vincent Price. www.hammerfilms.com
This lifts the clip to an additional meta-level: The mockery of using an early 60s technique to visualize The Sacrilegious Scorn for a present day audience.
