Doom

Feel the Industrial Doom Heat of THE ANSWER LIES IN THE BLACK VOID “Moult” a Tré Wilson film

So many of us lost our entire world beginning in March 2020. Whether it was through the physical loss of human beings in our lives, or the perceived loss of our entire identity when we were cut off from what we’d come to know as “normal.” For some of us, it meant a reunion with our true selves, a beautiful awakening to the person we hid away many, many years ago so they couldn’t be wounded by the world anymore. For others, it left them vulnerable to the full embrace of the darkness that had been threatening to engulf them.

On their recent album, Forlorn, that came out on September 24th via Burning World Records — order it hereThe Answer Lies In The Black Void took inspiration from union; ironically recorded at a time when every message we were getting was about staying separate. They describe the record as being about “the sacred union of the divine feminine and masculine, the light and the dark, the shadows that hide within and the trials of love, lust, and loss.”

And when I watch the brilliant film for their track “Moult,” directed by Shreveport, Louisiana-based Tré Wilson, I see a union of adult and inner child, a union of disparate perspectives. A union of expansive folk-tinged industrial doom and living with the suffocation of psychological doom. The union of two burning churches; one symbolizing racial terrorism devised to emotionally imprison, and the other blasphemous freedom from religious captivity.

I’ve watched this video several times now and I’ve realized it can be better felt than described. What I feel is a weight on my chest that threatens to stop my lungs from breathing. A heat on my skin that’s searing my flesh. With the soundtrack of “Moult,” and the way the band masters a balance of delicate melody, piercing percussion, and a wall of riffs, this is an audiovisual experience that’s now burned into my mind. We’re honored to share The Answer Lies In The Black Void’s new video for “Moult” below, a Tré Wilson film.

As an artist I am drawn to work that explores the lives of those who are not often seen nor truthfully heard in media, and Jason gave me an amazing opportunity to explore that and the inner lives of those with depression in “Moult.”– Martrese “Tré” Wilson, Director, DP, and Digital Colorist
