MØTIVATIØN: The Infinite 8 Steps To Power / Money / More Full-Length From All-Star Collaboration Featuring Members Of Faith No More, Lunachicks, EyeHateGod, Obituary, Black Anvil, And More Out TODAY On Seeing Red Records

2/22/2022 marks the official unveiling of The Infinite 8 Steps To Power / Money / More from MØTIVATIØN, the mammoth collaborative undertaking led by chief motivator, instigator, orchestrator and visionary, Ø.

MØTIVATIØN unites a varied array of musicians under the guise of one 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.

In advance of the release of The Infinite 8 Steps To Power / Money / More, the cooperative released three video singles beginning with “Prisøn Løgic,” a track that seamlessly exhumes psychic survival techniques designed to enlighten the listener, introducing the realm of both mental and physical self-liberation. “Prisøn Løgic” was birthed as a singular acoustic video offering via legendary guitar innovator Parris Mayhew (Cro-Mags) as the vom messaging materializes from Mike IX Williams (EyeHateGod). Williams has an intimate understanding of confinement and the institutionalization of one’s mind. Theo Kogan’s (Lunachicks) blessed vocals are fractals of aural Blondie resonance intertwined with the dueling guitar leads of Gina Volpe (Lunachicks) and Shane Trimble (High Reeper) cultivating in a comforting frequency that coats the closing message in an easily ingested amalgamation of the positive.

Next came the sludge-powered filth of “Revelatiøn Denied,” featuring members of Obituary and Intoxicated (members of the Andrew W.K. band). Issued Ø of the track, “The Cøllective is well pleased by the pøsitive cøllabøratiøn from Erik [Payne], Gregg [Roberts], Mike [Radford], and John [Sutton] of Intoxicated and Kenny [Andrews] of Obituary. ‘Revelatiøn Denied’ contributes a unique strain of møtivatiønal power which we believe to be very effective for the purging and transmutation of the negative. This track is a sonic journey through the swamps of the human psyche; the darkness is thick, the air is heavy, and you are surrounded by a choir of creatures which threaten to pull you under and tear you apart. Only by remaining in motion will you survive. Having contributed their talents to Andrew W.K. since 1998, Erik and Greg have been undeniably imbued with ‘party power,’ a highly motivational energy indeed. With Andrew’s mysterious disappearance in fall of 2021, a higher level of creativity seems to have been activated– the song was completed 24 hours after being contacted by the cøllective.”

Finally there was “Control,” which was introduced as a completed sonic offering, recorded by NYBM luminary Paul Delaney (Black Anvil, Kill Your Idols). The companion lyrics and messaging are a vital reminder the Prime Candidate must submit to the program to be discharged from the futile need to control The Negative. The inflection of a swarming commitment counters a diminished understanding of our own limitations and our ability to transcend them is ingrained in this post punk blackened composition.
