MØTIVATIØN, the mammoth collaborative undertaking led by chief motivator, instigator, orchestrator and visionary, Ø, has unveiled its latest video, “Hel Føn Ágnum Klár Føn Bryn Ànd Licht Føn Gást.” Now playing at Decibel Magazine, the track comes by way of The Infinite 8 Steps To Power / Money / More full-length, released in February via Seeing Red Records.
MØTIVATIØN unites a varied array of musicians under the guise of a simple premise: If you want to motivate yourself by motivating others and/or motivate others by motivating yourself, then your positive collaboration will be most welcome. MØTIVATIØN’s immersive experience and teachings continually challenge and engage candidates searching for the best possible version of themselves. The ambitious effort boasts twelve stirring hymns brought to fruition by members of Faith No More, Throbbing Gristle, Agnostic Front, L7, Lunachicks, Toxic Holocaust, EyeHateGod, Black Anvil, High Reeper, Obituary, the Andrew W. K. band, and so many more.
At once epic and disquieting, the instrumental “Hel Føn Ágnum Klár Føn Bryn Ànd Licht Føn Gást” features JB Van Der Wal (Dool, Ûngrûn, Lugubre, ex-Aborted, ex-Herder) and Thomas Haywood (Humanity is Cancer, Grave Plague, To Dust, Vintage Warlords, ex-Abigail Williams).
Offers Ø, “In celebration of the Mømentus occasion of the completion of the first Nøde of the Human Bløckchain (BETA///138), the MØTIVATIØN Cøllective has produced this offering. It is our hope and intention that this act of creative experimentation, this demonstration of the power of connectivity and the incredible technology of the collective human neural network, supercharge the psyche of all who were bold enough to participate, and act as a beacon to all on the quest for PURE MØTIVATIØN.”
Adds Decibel, “The ambitious track has a ritualistic feel about it, blending primal drumming, sparkling ambient and strummed acoustic guitar with lumbering doom. ‘Hel Føn Ágnum Klár Føn Bryn Ànd Licht Føn Gást’ is fully instrumental but the song says plenty, traversing the area between soaring crescendos and crushing lows.”
