As the Italian heavy instrumental doom and post-metal three-piece Thedus gear up to release their debut album Hypnosis, a seven-track, sixty-two-minute behemoth, through Argonauta Records at the end of this month, we at The Shaman are beyond stoked to bring you the dark and mysterious video for the second single Regression.
About the chorale, the band says, ‘Regression is the second track from our upcoming full-length. It represents the moment of the loss of perception of the senses and surrounding space, descending to an introspective journey, searching for traumatic memories from the past, which binds the patient to a state of depression, catatonic moments and the loss of the meaning of life.’
Then add that the Chariot Of Black Moth produced video, ‘reproduces this very passage, in the various scenes, various psychological states such as despair, loneliness, and a sense of loss are depicted. In addition, flashbacks appear running through all the memories, dreams and nightmares of a past life.’
Now regress, click play below and surrender to the heavy riffage of Thedus…
More On Thedus & ‘Hypnosis’
Thedus was born in Parma, Italy at the end of 2018. The components Roberto Amoruso (guitar), Ivan Belisardi (bass) and Simone Silvestre (drums) find themselves working in the room on songs elaborated from Rob‘s ideas and, between a rehearsal and the first live shows, they meet again in February 2019 to record their first self-titled EP Thedus I.
After a long period of silence caused by the pandemic, they entered again the studio for the recordings of the first full-length, thanks to the support of Enrico Baraldi at the Vacuum Studio in Bologna.
The music was initially born with a broader idea of exploiting the explosive force of doom, with various references to the sludge thrust, up to more post-doom environments, to express the idea of the devastating force of the universe that surrounds us.
With the latest work to be released, the band goes into a more limited and introspective research of human psychological suffering, with the idea of bringing the listener to face the traumatic nature of deep research into oneself in a state of hypnosis.
