Witching Chronicles: Exploring The THEDUS’ Hypnosis

In the dimly lit realms of instrumental post-sludge and doom, where the shadows dance to the rhythm of distortion and melancholy, THEDUS emerges from the Italian underground scene, bearing a sonic tale. Born from the cosmic ether of Parma in 2018, this enigmatic trio, comprised of Roberto Amoruso (guitar), Ivan Belisardi (bass), and Simone Silvestre (drums), has orchestrated an ethereal opus titled “Hypnosis.”

Imagine stepping into an esoteric trance, where time is suspended, and reality warps to accommodate the haunting melodies and shuddering rhythms of Thedus. Their journey began with their self-titled EP, a precursor to the grand odyssey that is “Hypnosis.” A creation nurtured in the studio with the guiding hand of Enrico Baraldi at the Vacuum Studio in Bologna, this album delves into the abyss of the human psyche, unraveling layers of consciousness with meticulous precision.

Thedus’ sonic landscape, initially rooted in the explosive force of doom, evolves throughout “Hypnosis.” It flirts with the primal vigor of sludge and gracefully meanders into post-doom territories. The music acts as a cosmic mirror, reflecting the vast, devastating force of the universe that envelops us. Yet, in this introspective exploration, the band pivots. They delve into the recesses of human psychological suffering, peeling back the layers of the mind in a state of hypnosis.

Each track on “Hypnosis” feels like a chapter from a forbidden grimoire, inviting the listener to confront their deepest fears and desires. The ethereal synergy between Roberto Amoruso’s haunting guitar riffs, Ivan Belisardi’s thunderous bass lines, and Simone Silvestre’s hypnotic drum patterns creates an immersive atmosphere, pulling the audience into a transcendent experience.

In this album, silence speaks as loudly as the thunderous riffs. The moments between the notes are pregnant with meaning, offering a profound introspection into the nature of existence. The listener is beckoned to embark on an intimate journey, navigating the labyrinthine corridors of their own subconscious.

“Hypnosis” is a sonic séance, an immersive ritual that transcends the boundaries of conventional music. THEDUS has crafted a masterpiece that lures the listener into the depths of their own psyche, urging them to confront the profound, the terrifying, and the sublime. It’s an odyssey through sound, a transformative experience that leaves an indelible mark on the soul. In the hushed whispers of each note, in the reverberations of every beat, Thedus beckons you to embrace the darkness within, and in that acceptance, find liberation.
