Ghostemane has returned with a blood-curdling stop motion animation for his 2018 highlight “Gatteka.” Off of his overtly dark and exceedingly aggressive N/O/I/S/E project — aptly short for No One Is Safe from Evil — the track hones in on themes surrounding self-harm and enslavement, with lyrics pertaining to George Orwell’s 1984 and even the German demon Mephistopheles.
These motifs are carried forth within the Thomas J Yagodinski visual, whereby the haunting narrative and in-your-face visuals draw heavily from the artist’s upcoming comic book, Dr. Nihil and the Tremendous Blunder. The titular character featured in the forthcoming comic plays the video’s main villain. Within the visual, this villain can be seen transforming individuals into his Blackmage followers — when one steps out of line after seeing what will become of him, the villain’s transformed army chases after him until he is caught.
You can watch the video for “Gatteka” above. Ghostemane has also announced a massive Europe tour for 2020 — full dates can be found here.
