about

Anomaly in Effigy Queenstown, Maryland

This is metal influenced by 90s Norwegian black metal and USBM, classic heavy metal bands, a little Swedish death metal, my own fucked up mental states, and occultism, particularly Hermeticism and Thelema.

Started writing around 2004, and released home-recorded demos on small underground metal labels beginning in 2006. Have been releasing records on small labels or independently since then.

Track Name: Embers and Coals
How then did it come to pass
that we should stand upon this ground
Starlight raining on our brows
Summer winds that bear the seeds
We are stainless golden strands
within the web that has no end
Clarion the horn that calls
Awakening the falcon's sight

Nurturing the embers still
Glowing brighter with each breath
Shielded from the wind and rain
Seeking fuel to raise the flame

Burn away the useless shame
Burn away the worthless guilt
Burn away unwanted pity
Burn away all false selves

Pure and white the cleansing flame
Lick my bones and purge my eyes
True and perfect holy flame
Rise, rise, rise!
Track Name: Wheel of Samsara Ablaze
By Will there is dissolution
By Will I am made manifest
By Will I plunge into the hells
By Will there is ecstasy

Are we the creators of our own suffering?
Did sadism construct the universe?
Did lust exile us into duality?
Or are there ends we do not perceive?

Was it chance as the vulgar preach?
Or by decree as the blind contend?
Are we asking the right questions?
Can we even comprehend?
Cast all into the flame
Reveal what is not consumed
Above flesh
Beyond mind
Above matter
Beyond gods
Track Name: Aloof
Here I come at last
to the hoary misty peaks
Reaching up a hand to pull myself onto the pyre
Beyond the reach of anything
that wears a cloak of flesh
Lying now in the roaring flame
Losing myself in the lambent spears
Becoming incandescence
Motion within motion
Individuality melting in converging rays
Leaving my humanity
like slag upon the stone

Uncorrupted victory
supernal and sublime
Simplified complexities and paradoxes solved
Seeing all with just one eye
Undistorted, without limit
Duo in unum
Unus in nihil
Track Name: Cleanse Us, Burn Within Us
The fields amongst which I dwell
less desolate than the crowded streets
At once too advanced and too primitive
A vast living web
turned hive of cold hollow chambers

My church is defiled on an hourly basis
Contemptuous glances
Oblivious faces

Bathe the lands in Promethean blaze
Cleanse the earth in Gibil's breath
Carve a Yod on the great tree's roots
Rouse us from somnambulance
May Vulcanus split the ground
Agni's shrine ignites the black
Hadit burning in our hearts
Drive the fucking bastard back
Track Name: Pangenitor/Panphage
Down from the silent void
to the world of change and form
With the milk of Mother
and encouragement of Father
and with the promise to return to the unborn one
residing in the womb of omnipresence
Passing through the veils of all illusions
to plant these roots in the earth
to taste these fruits
and breathe this air
Blithe and unconstrained

One amongst many
Separate and distinct
One amongst many
Clambering for the false throne
One amongst many
Knives against each other's throat
One amongst many
Forgotten what we are

It's easier to fly without a head
The wise kill expectation in the womb

We're so modern and above it all
We're so fucking highly evolved
We're so modern and above it all
We're so fucking highly evolved

Hell can be
wherever you sow the seed
Hell can be
right fucking here
Hell can be
everything you think you need
Hell is ever only
right fucking here

Devour me!
Devour me!
Track Name: Man on the Silver Mountain (Rainbow Cover)
Written by Blackmore/Dio

I'm a wheel, I'm a wheel
I can roll, I can feel
And you can't stop me turning

Cause I'm the sun, I'm the sun
I can move, I can run
And you'll never stop me burning

Come down with fire
Lift my spirit higher
Someone's screaming my name
Come and make me holy again

I'm the man on the silver mountain
I'm the man on the silver mountain

I'm the day, I'm the day
I can show you the way
And look, I'm right beside you

I'm the night, I'm the night
I'm the dark and the light
With eyes that see inside you

Come down with fire
Lift my spirit higher
Someone's screaming my name
Come and make me holy again

I'm the man on the silver mountain
I'm the man on the silver mountain

Come down with fire
And lift my spirit higher
Someone's screaming my name
Come and make me holy again

I'm the man on the silver mountain
I'm the man on the silver mountain

Oh I can help you, you know I can
I'm the man on the silver mountain
I'm the man on the silver mountain

Just look at me and listen
I'm the man, the man, give you my hand
I'm the man on the silver mountain

Comin' down with fire
And lift your spirit higher
I'm a man on a mountain
The man on the silver mountain
I'm the night, I'm the light
I'm the black and the white
I'm the man on the silver mountain
I'm the man on the silver mountain
