Alessio from Mamuthones had this to say about the video:

"Well, everything started with “Holy Ghost People” documentary. It  is a 1967 documentary directed and narrated by Peter Adair. It is about the service of a Pentecostal community in Scrabble Creek, West Virginia, United States. The church service includes faith healing, snake handling, speaking in tongues and singing. This documentary has entered the public domain and is available at the Internet Archive.

I sample some voices from that and I “built” two songs starting from this: “The Holy Ghost People” and “I’ve gotta be”.

Now our side of the Collision #4 is titled “Taking up Serpents” which is taken from the Bible ("In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all")… the verses from which the “Holy Ghost People”  based their rites.

When we started to think about the video it was obvious to use the documentary.The guy in front of the projection is doing its own rite but when the music “explodes” you see that something happens and in the end he is part of the community. "

The record is ltd to 600 copies on milky white vinyl and is available to preorder now in all your good record shops.
