Ego and the Ids

Ego and The Ids is a musical project more than a band. It is a collaboration of musicians who wish to create something beautiful and huge with sound while exploiting music's ability to make people feel something they can relate to. It is about evoking mental images of life, death and everything in between, always taking the time to show the grandeur of the human experience.

This band views music as an alchemical process, a formulation of experience and musical influences. Simply put, their music is orchestral, melodic, and experimental.

Magick, Music and Ritual 6 - Picture It 03:42

Picture It
(del Campo)

“Picture It” came to me on the realization that people believe the earth is immortal and unbreakable. That was the only reason I could come up with for completely ignoring the facts of how tenuous our existence is. I have performed ceremonial magick for the purpose of preventing certain environmental things, but in order to drive that point home, I had to treat it is a “thing.” In our day and age, people only seem to be concerned with things.

Before the ritual, I attempted to change my perspective by seeing myself infinitely large and infinitely small. The image I ended with was the tiny earth sitting in my hands. It may sound like a cliché, but that image is what gave me the idea for the song.

Magick, Music and Ritual 3 - Knight in the Abyss 03:55

Knight in the Abyss
(del Campo/Fitzharris)

“Knight in The Abyss” is the result of an impromptu collaboration between Ego and The Ids and Scholar. It is a song depicting the struggles one experiences on the magical path as they approach the abyss: doubt, lack of confidence, questioning ones actions, lust for result, etc… We all go through that, though very few of us are willing to admit it. It will be included in the next Ego and the Ids album, Kinemortophobia.
