Bio

ooluu is Davindra, Asa, Khemavr, and Pete.

 

Inducing trance states and altered consciousnesses, ooluu wields mysticism, ritualism, and cosmogony through concussive bass, tribal drumming, serrated guitars, and soaring, shrieking vocals.

 

Forged out of Oompalunatiks, the brainchild of Ignius Shacklebolt, the kernel of ooluu was Asa and Davindra’s meeting through Ignius. Initially a five-piece band, Oompalunatiks was formed early in the summer of 2012. In May 2013, Oompalunatiks rechristened themselves ooluu.

 

ooluu released their first single and music video, Powder-White, on December 13th, 2013, and their debut EP, Mannequin, on February 14th, 2014.

 

In the summer of 2014, Davindra, Asa, and Khemavr retreated entirely from live performances to hone their new sound and conceptual oeuvre, OPHUS.

 

Emerging only briefly in 2015, ooluu began the proceedings for the second cycle, and on January 23rd, 2016, after almost two years of patiently perfecting it, unleashed the OPHUS LP.

 

ooluu released the ANTEDILUVIAN EP on March 23rd, 2018, with the mixing wizardry of Dave 'Rave' Ogilvie (Skinny Puppy, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Carly Rae Jepsen) behind their freshly ferocious, more tribal, more progressive, and more melodic material.

 

ooluu is already recording more material for a full album.

antedilvuian ep ophus LP Mannequin ep
antedilvuian ep

ignominy

perpetuities

ignominy

i relive

every moment, a vigour

tainted

by the taste of completely over

 

i reflect

shards sown across my floor

this fragrance

caught that scent here before

 

and i choose to accept this situation

i can breach this precipice in the way, saw me

and i could’ve been beyond your recognition

shed the skin to remedy the tear

 

i relive

every moment a vigour

tainted

by the taste of completely over

 

i reflect

shreds sown across my floor

this fragrance

i caught that scent here before

 

and i choose to accept this situation

i can breach this precipice in the way, saw me

and i could’ve been beyond your recognition

shed the skin to remedy the tear

 

and you… you…

 

regret, ignominy

and it will never be

enough to fill me up

you’re done you’ve had enough

 

you’re washing over me

i reach for anything

you’re tide, i'm drifting out

still got me by the throat

 

i relive

every moment

tainted

by the taste of completely over

 

perpetuities

Perpetuities

tongue-tasting streams

we perpetuate

mirroring our scenes

as I contemplate

 

weaving our dreams

that we perpetuate

perpetually seize

there’s no time to waste

 

i must be dumb

 

i’m full

circle

third eye

to eye

i’m full

circle

now i know why

i’m full

filled

full

of this would(a)

could(a)

(bull)shit circle

 

tongue-tasting streams

we perpetuate

mirroring these scenes

as i contemplate

 

weaving our dreams

that we perpetuate

perpetually seize and

no time to waste

 

you must be numb

 

i vacate this void, i peregrinate

 

i’m full

circle

third eye

to eye

i’m full

circle

and i know why

we're full

filled

full

of a

need

that’s

so

empty

 

ophus LP
manichaeus viscera calenture porcelain gnosis victor polyvalence man

manichaeus

we are not told

how low these holes go

these naked bones know

they’ve long bathed in the dirt

 

so unlike me

stain all the white sheets

gorge on your mercies

i flay myself again

 

finity

red is what I see

fucking tear away a promise to myself

re-live

bated me — gave a shit

ragged epilogue

started and finished it

 

ligaments shorn

reused

reworn

 

we are not told

how low these holes go

these naked bones know

they’ve long bathed in the dirt

 

so unlike me

stain all the white sheets

gorge on your mercies

i flay myself again

 

lies

faded porcelain eyes

your vision of sanctity is written

go on without me

 

tried

land and sea collide

i know it's the only way

and that this won't be the last time

 

we are not told

how low these holes go

these naked bones know

they’ve long bathed in the dirt

 

so unlike me

stain all the white sheets

gorge on your mercies

i flay myself again

 

we are not told

how low these holes go

these naked bones know

they’ve long bathed in the dirt

 

so unlike me

stain all the white sheets

gorge on your mercies

i flay myself again

viscera

wrap my hands around your neck

my digits fade away

i've let go, my arms object

ego fades and falls astray

 

"can't see it, but I feel like

everything could happen for you"

"can't see it, but I feel like

everything could happen for you"

 

tearing at my viscera

vacant stares, occluded faces

lips form words that won't come out

in the vacuum of the vacant shout

 

i returned here from the end

the weeds have waxed and grown

what you want, never what you get

it's the only way i've known

 

can't see it, but I feel like

everything is happening to me

can't see it, but I feel like

everything is happening to me

can't see it, but I feel like

everything is happening to me

can't see it, but I feel like

everything is happening to me

 

tearing at my viscera

vacant stares, occluded faces

lips form words that won't come out

in the vacuum of the vacant shout

calenture

divine

basks in sublime

this precious pet of mine

this desire for everything again

 

null

pushes the now

it never quite amounts

i’ve felt that fear

immense and unpronounced

 

i find you in me

within the endless sea

you’re lost in me

indeed an endless sea

 

disaffection

breaking in the wake of dreams

nothing’s quite as it seems

 

within this shell

i’m not the only one

i was never the only one

 

unfurl the concealed despair

blinded daggered glare

you tempted?

i’m the snake charmer

tear you down

 

power

i’ll make you taste it

elongated resentment

we cultivate these forms and this design

 

disaffection

breaking in the wake of dreams

nothing’s quite as it seems

 

within this shell

i’m not the only one

i was never the only one

 

i find you in me

within the endless sea

you’re lost in me

within an endless sea

 

porcelain

hollow is long and narrow

within the Void i am not alone

 

flesh, blood, eyes, hands and marrow

deliver myself; i am trapped no more

 

on the verge of discontent, consent to kill

admonish-mate the fig and it was ripe with your spit

 

bathed and broken, assiduously insincere

your means became the end of all that i've ever known

 

no sharp swords, but you know there’s another side

we are more than just waiting to fucking die

 

we’re the shield, the blind lead the blind, disease-

spangled heroes, suffocation’s never free

 

there isn’t a place for me

you threw it away

down falls the failing mercury

this all faded away

 

no sharp swords, but you know there’s another side

we are more than just waiting to fucking die

 

we’re the shield, the blind lead the blind, disease-

spangled heroes, suffocation’s never free

 

bathed and broken, assiduously insincere

your means became the end of all that i've ever known

 

no sharp swords, but you know there’s another side

we are more than just waiting to fucking die

 

we’re the shield, the blind lead the blind, disease-

spangled heroes, suffocation’s never free

gnosis

inside my gut, feel the pus

feel the seed

came from the bottom

then chopped off my feet

 

i am among them

the sad and the fucked

married to Sodom and pinned to the front

 

take off your face so I can

take a little time off of your life

step down from grace or i’ll

tear another wing off before flight

 

bloodstained complexion

i just can’t emote

milk, spit, and honey

pour down my throat

 

take off your face so i can

take a little time off of your life

step down from grace or i’ll

tear another wing off before flight

 

idols slipping out of view

i am alone

betrayed by you

don’t believe in this contrast

floodgates of filth opened at last

 

i am not so feeble but i feel diseased

i can’t feel the void but it’s calling for me

i see through the keyhole and i don’t know what to say

i can’t touch the devil but she’s part of me today

 

i am not so feeble but i feel diseased

i can’t feel the void but it’s calling for me

i see through the keyhole and i don’t know what to say

i can’t touch the devil but she’s part of me today

 

i am not so feeble but i feel diseased

i can’t feel the void but it’s calling for me

i see through the keyhole and i don’t know what to say

i can’t touch the devil but she’s part of me today

 

i am not so feeble but i feel diseased

i can’t feel the void but it’s calling for me

i see through the keyhole and i don’t know what to say

i can’t touch the devil but she’s part of me today

 

take off your face so i can

take a little time off of your life

step down from grace or i’ll

tear another wing off before flight

 

take off your face so i can

take a little time off of your life

step down from grace or i’ll

tear another wing off before flight

 

take off your face so i can

take a little time off of your life

step down from grace or i’ll

tear another wing off before flight

 

take off your face so i can

take a little time off of your life

step down from grace or i’ll

tear another wing off before flight

 

i am among them

the sad and the fucked

married to Sodom and pinned to the front

polyvalence

blanching blank in dull faceless pain

the solace of solitude

within me decays

 

sip you but nothing nothing slakes my thirst

this dry, cracked, clay body

bore me through dirt

 

i am infinite ambition

i become the void

lord of cavities

 

vacuous hunger exacting a toll

he blended beneath blankets of snow

 

this is the instant

attach myself again

above the material

this can be taken away

victor

how’d I do this to myself?

why’d I choose this?

coiled and cast far away

how’d I do this to myself?

why’d I choose this?

coiled and cast away

 

round and round

temptation to taste this

snake skin thrilling me

 

endless game resentment

endless game, you’re restless

pathetic pariah putrefying

 

you are above this

and underneath it

bloodsickened and smitten

fate you cannot leave

 

how’d I do this to myself?

why’d I choose this?

coiled and cast far away

 

do it, Adam

plunge the sword into your gut

do it, Adam

I am now your only god

 

this is the only way

I can’t contain this lust

you are the rock; I am the sea

 

ouroboros

ouroboros

what goes around comes around

 

sweat, salt

I could not see it

you couldn’t resist me

sweat, salt

I could not see it

you couldn’t resist me

sweat, salt

I could not see it

you couldn’t resist me

sweat, salt

I could not see it

you couldn’t resist me

 

do it, Adam

lose yourself inside this rut

do it, Adam

take the knife and make the cut

do it, Adam

plunge the sword inside your gut

do it, dear Adam

I am now your only god

 

sweat, salt

I could not see it

you couldn’t resist me

sweat, salt

I could not see it

you couldn’t resist me

sweat, salt

I could not see it

you couldn’t resist me

sweat, salt

I could not see it

you couldn’t resist me

 

choke on your tail

you haven’t won

I am the victor

and you are undone

 

choke on your tail

you haven’t won

I am the victor

and you are undone

 

choke, choke, choke

choke on your tail

choke, choke, choke

choke on your tail

 

choke, choke, choke

choke on your tail

choke, choke, choke

choke on your tail

 

you know, I see

you are the same as me

man

rise, fain the hide

we couldn’t fade or feign fake lives

 

eyes sought our paradigm

the cyclic, tyrannical abuse

 

bite down on the teat

blank, bloodstained, concrete

high tide fucks the weak

those born into bondage

 

we are complete

blank, bloodstained, concrete

high tide fucks the weak

those born into bondage

 

look us in our eyes

dried up the sea, sadistically cried

let us get back to you

the cyclic and the dead attract the flies

 

bite down on the teat

blank, bloodstained, concrete

high tide fucks the weak

those born into bondage

 

we are complete

blank, bloodstained, concrete

high tide fucks the weak

those born into bondage

 

you’re not awake

you’re not awake

you’re not awake

you’re not awake

you’re not awake

you’re not awake

you’re not awake

you’re not awake

you’re not awake

you’re not awake

you’re not awake

you’re not awake

you’re not awake

you’re not awake

you’re not awake

you’re not awake
