Take a Trip on the Psychedelic Occult Doom of AIWASS “Be Not a Man”

As soon as I hear Aleister Crowley-obsessed psychedelic doom, I’m intrigued. That’s how AIWASS was described to me, and from the first rippling riffs of their single “Be Not a Man” I knew this record would live up to this ambitious label. It’s the solo project of musician Blake Carrera, who’s on a mission to revive the corpse of doom with his sonic ceremonial magick. “Be Not a Man” is off AIWASS’ new record The Falling that’s out via King Volume Records on October 13th — pre-order it here. Today we’re stoked to be sharing “Be Not a Man” with you below —let this track take you on a trip into the mysteries of the occult below…

With so many different influences, The Falling is a risky album—but it’s one that shines even more brightly because of it. The themes of Aleister Crowley and Thelema are still prominent, but they’re woven into lyrics that explore Carrera’s personal struggles and thoughts around mental illness, philosophy, and psychology.
