"The Alchemists Of The Radiant Sepulchre" Lyrics
Gravity born asunder from the distant polarity,
Our Will forming and shaping the Cosmos,
Invincible and dazed, inebriated by ecstasy,
Our Gaze transforms the Malebolge, again and again.
The Nether-horned Androgynous reaps the riddles of Empedokles
The circle is drawn and brought to the Seven Dimensions,
What is Τhy Name, Thy Nature, Thy Essence, Thy Hierarchy?
What is that terrible form, rising with tremor and smeared in Victory?
The Eyes of the Pneuma turn silent,
Whence the Sun is clad in gold and sapphire gowns
The Alchemists chant and chant the Mantras of the Kings
Sung and sewn in sinister, tremendous seance
Thus and Thus, from the Alphas of Khem to the End of Creation, Our Voices crack the cluster of matter, Forth and below, beyond and above, We are baptized again in the salted waters of the Nile, From the glorious Land of Cush, to the edge of existence, We are the herd of Ezequiel, the Shamans of Kephra, Τhe Alchemists of the blazing, Midnight Sun.
The band comments: "Faustian Ethos...a sacrament of Devil's Art and Magic. The Coven of ACHERONTAS enters the indisputable paths of the unspeakable to transgress the Infallible traditions beyond the mundane perception. Originally crafted during the procreation of 'Amarta', the material of 'Faustian Ethos' was chosen to become a separate entity, following a different musical and ideological approach. Eight offerings to the great and everlasting Work, eight Keys to the deepest layers of the Abyss. Exploring multiple crossroads ,the Coven return to the Western path, two years after the Union release with Nastrond. Art, religion and philosophy blend within the spectre of straight-edged and razor-sharp Black Metal, devoid of ornamental elements, reaching the very core of irredeemable Black Magical, Devilish Art. The most intense, profound and apocryphal chapter of the musical/magickal "Ma-Ion" trilogy is taking form and, like a final element, completes the alchemy of this esoteric work. Rooted deeply into the substantial core of our tradition, it invokes the Faustian spirit once again, as the Sun sets into the ruins of modernity. The triangle shall be crowned with an oak wreath and the cycle shall be completed, yet for another one to begin".
