After 6 years of silence finally we maneged to produce the Long awaited come-back album by LONSAI MAIKOV for this release joining force with DISSONANT ELEPHANT (both projects featured on the legendary compilation "Mystteria Mithrae" by Athanor).
Their new common album is an exposition of the Dark side of the Spiritual travel in the world.
A Shamanic travel, an extra-corporal musical inner travel, not ecstatic but a meditating one … even if everything has two face, two side and different degrees, and so implies also some violent experiment.
The "esosymphonic pop-folk" has been completed by more electronic rough sounds and dark ambient martial sounds … "Thee Darkening ov Powers" has been a long work of meditation, writing and composition, paradox of meditation …
elaborating sounds that reflects our thoughts and deeds about the Real Religious and Spiritual History of the World has we know it …
from the Claws of Fenriz to the Exaltation of the Cross, from the Wud to the Wonderful Christian Mysteries containing all things by the practice of via negativa and via affirmativa.
Musically and spiritually we want to fulfill our "mission" in a christian way and without any syncretism making sound
and vibrate the great northern figures as anticipation of the Kingdom of the Logos and the Paraclet.
To tell the Truth : composing odes and hymns to an other restoration of the same and eternal REGNUM …
by using DOCTRINE EXPOSED AS POETRY what means ORARE et OPERARE.
This place us, musicians – trobadors in the line of the northern initiation intimated linked to the antient poetry, and stay alive in the Christian initiation of Chivalry !
The tree is inverted but still we have to climb. We must pass through the darkness of being, the inferior, the most exterior state of being to conquer the highest,
but in these Dark ages, the time we are living, our most external lives are already the darkest stages. … Et tenebrae eam non comprehenderunt !"
As we at OEC like to say, this is best quality "Neo Pop'n'Folk" !
