We have recently reviewed the sophomore album by Belgian dark/black metal band Sercati In the Shadows of Sidewalks; the concept of the album and of this project in general is the story of an angel fallen on the earth called The Nightstalker. The band’s mastermind Steve Fabry Sercati has also written a book on same subject; he also has another band project called The Nightstalker revolving around the same concept, of whom we also have released the latest release.
Sercati have now also released a short movie about The Nightstalker, Poisoned Hunting, which you can watch below.
Directed by Michel Garsou
Written by Yannick Martin
Based on a character created by Steve Fabry
Sound designed by Steve Fabry
It's a part of the story about The Nightstalker ( main character). The short movie takes place after Sercati's last release : the EP "In the Shadows and Sidewalks".
"In the Shadows and Sidewalks":
You can also download Sercati's audio book ( that tells the story of the Nightstalker) here:
“The history of the Nightstalker is the epopee of an angel who decides to descend from Paradise in order to gain his humanity and his own existence. He will have to face disappointments and discoveries. But, he will also have to find his niche in the middle of mankind, to understand them, and to understand himself. He discovers the share of kindness in them, but also the deep suffering many of them feel. The angel feels that as a deep imbalance between the forces of good and evil. This awakening pushes him to help humanity in its search for balance. For him, it is also a question of gaining his redemption. He finds his niche while becoming like a guard: The Nightstalker. Lucifer sent some soldiers against him. The first fight was between the Nightstalker and the Hound from Hell (Album: The Rise of The Nightstalker), the enemy changed the mind of the hero and his way to see the world. We assisted to his doubt, his hidden fight with his faith and finally to the Rise of the Nightstalker. Now, the prince of darkness sent to him the Anesthetist, whose barbarism is equalled only by his madness, and the Nightstalker will be careful this time (Album: EP- In the Shadows and Sidewalks).”
