Ye Gods Rouses What’s Beyond the Veil With “Total Eclipse”

What do we do with the things we capture,
But then refuse to let go?

Ye Gods, the alias of prolific producer and composer Antoni Maiovvi, is a study in the subtle complexities of dark sound design alongside conceptual themes of the occult. With his new album on L.I.E.S. Records titled No Albion, the artist embraces aspects of visceral horror—a soundtrack to the deep, vast abyss—by way of minimalism and slow modulations.

No Albion focuses on the pursuit of serpentine modulations and tenuous phrasings—and the single, “Total Eclipse,” is just that. Much in the vein of industrialist greats, Coil, the track paces itself as it swells and undulates. The slow-building tension boils to the brim before it dissipates and concludes with a mysterious spoken word statement. The listener is left to wonder what spirits have been roused from their sleep.

And just like the track itself, the music video mirrors the steadiness of “Total Eclipse” as it depicts Maiovvi walking down an empty corridor towards an unseen something—or someone. Masked and stoic, the artist in his priest-like robe recalls a ceremonial ritual that’s about to unfold.
