Sweden’s Marvel have won the Best Music Video award for the promo of their cover of Wasp’s Love Machine at the Honolulu Film Awards.

Directed by Alfred Lindhal and produced by Bjorn Rallare, the video for the track is taken from the band’s latest album The Hills Have Eyes.

Marvel say: “It took quite a bit of planning to sort out the idea. The producer’s original idea was changed after talking to the director and animator to find a way to do the video in the ‘easiest’ and most efficient way, and then it took one-and-a-half months.

“It was a labor of love, sweat, tears and $1800.”

Marvel will appear at the Fishbait Rock Festival in Finland, which will be held from June 17-18.

Former news desk member Christina joined the team in late 2015 and although her time working on online rock news was fairly brief, she made a huge impact by contributing close to 1500 stories. Christina also interviewed artists including Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and worked at the Download festival. In late 2016, Christina left rock journalism to pursue a career in current affairs. That's proved to be a massive success and in 2021, she was named Local Weekly Feature Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.
