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".

Track Name: Coruscations of the Daemon-Light
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
Track Name: The Going Forth of Sothis
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
Track Name: The Sidereal Messenger
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
Track Name: Through Angles Mirrored With Thoughts
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
Track Name: Descending Node Incantation
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
