1.
Two heralds dance as they gleam Lighting a path to the Self As a daemon blinking in the night Algol opposes itself, united as one As a watcher in the night Coruscating daemon-light Know the stars to know thyself Eclipsing mysteries show thyself A bridge traversing Self and cosmos Angular transgression The herald of the barrier A messenger forming the formless
2.
Slumber, watcher, till the spheres Six and twenty thousand years Have revolv’d, and I return To the spot where now I burn beneath the shadow of Sothis rising waters conceal that which is unseen must flow into the light when the dark withers by cycles emerge anew the end of eternity and the beginning of infinity the first stars gather unhurried the light of beginning fades farther then forgotten Slumber, watcher, till the spheres Six and twenty thousand years Have revolv’d, and I return To the spot where now I burn
3.
A message from the stars .... many-angled Reveal much that's hidden ... bound in darkness Navigating northward ... hight Polaris Unfold endless cycles ... bound by angles
4.
Prelude to the five angles of the night Let loose the sparks that breathe life Visions cast into the night Drawn from the stillness of the six The hounds are loosed Who see you in the darkness Only he who knows the Angles Would lurk beneath the threshold
5.
Do not call up that which you cannot put downe... a result Apart from those outside A cold wind springs to life... a horror Y'ai 'ny'ngoh / yog-sothoth H'ee-l'geb / f'ai throdog / Uaaah Ogthred ai'f / Geb'l-ee'h 'Ngah'ng ai'n / Zhro Bring forth self from its essential saltes... a madness Call forth self that cannot be put downe.. a cataclysm

about

The first new Eyes of Ligeia release in 9 years... released July 13, being 26 years since the Utterance of Runa.

Continuing in the style of 2004's "What the Moon Brings", 2015's "The Sidereal Messenger" continues with the themes of Starry Wisdom, the influence of H.P. Lovecraft, and an updated take on the same ethereal atmosphere that Doom-Metal.com called the "brooding sounds of decay and eternal night".
