ASCETIC’s second album Everything is Becoming speaks of metaphysical revelation in the exploration and interfacing of the flesh. The video for ATHEISM takes an unyielding look at aspects of our persona, self, and beliefs that perhaps question the notion of free will.
‘ATHEISM is about this realisation that your ‘God’, your ideology, your identity, if it has become a prison, that you are both the warden and the prisoner, that your are complicit in your slavery; that the only thing binding your chains is the belief that they exist.’
‘The film clip plays out against the background of a Cronenbergian world of paranoia and prosthetic appendages – built on suggestive relationships, centered around these themes of futility, blind faith and the surrealism of existence.’ August from ASCETIC, Post-Punk.
