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: Into the Great Sea
Begone, preaching pretender!
I cast thee out from the sight of my temple
I banish your blackened utterances
From my inner sanctum
Ye fools who bicker over the names of your tools
And so no work is done...

Now let us ride the Chariot to the heights
Fly to fill the Cup that taketh and giveth All

Garments falling from our shoulders
Gaze upon the naked Star
All without, All within
Disappear
Born again

Know thy Self
Know thy Way
Do what thou wilt!
Track Name: Shamed by Thanatophobia
Daggers of jagged bone pierce my scalp
On the doorstep of death and dreams
Obsequious I fall
Yet defiantly I claw
In vain, against the terror and the truth

The transience of flesh
And the ticking on the wall
The shifting of seasons
And movements of tides

Watching them wither beneath the sun
Sirens that shriek in the void
The Earth will take what is hers
The Wind will swallow up my breath

Sentient soil
Devoid of the spark
All traces devoured by time

I will See
Or I will Dissolve
If "I" even came to "be"
Track Name: Their Gods and Their Men
And I beheld in awe and horror
The vastness of the machine...

Blood and bone
Fuel and woe

Feasting on the heart
Of our brother
Chained beneath the fathoms
Naught but shadows left in the wake

And it was this night that hope receded
The Sun grew dim below
And naiveté was illumined

And the daunting task...
The Great Work unfinished
Rose as a behemoth
And devoured my spirit

And it was revealed to me
That they love their bonds
They adore their blindness
Ghosts and dust

Go forth into the wilderness and await the day of Wrath
Track Name: Embrace of Nuit
Void calling
Right here

Climb up and disappear

Back to where it ends
Swallowed back to sleep
Track Name: Horus Auspicium
Silence and Strength
