    Within the purse, fashioned from the workings of Hermetic industry, each sabot is enveloped in traditional Egyptian papyrus alchemically galvanised with fine parchment and vellum (originally from a Rosicrucian treatise nailed upon the doorway of Tübingen University in the 17th Century). The papyrus has been hand illuminated by Fraters J.T. and J.B. with an meritorious rendering of ‘Black Circles’ by esteemed Frater A.M.R. and a benevolent beviloquent of the movements found within the aural artistry by Frater C.R.C. To augment the amalgamation each movement has been further embellished with libretto and symbolism within a most secretive scriptorium.

about

The Processian brothers humbly submit their definitive epistle, an end to clamour and a route to sustenation
for those eager to transcend the lumpen, meagre fetters of Earthly existence.
Titan awaits the birth of the red giant, preparing for colonisation.
Helios sates his voracious appetite evolving unto nebula.
Entropy is inevitable, auguring destruction, predicating reconstitution.

Pax Vobiscum, brethren of the Golden Stone, your journey nears conclusion.
Rosicrucian fraternity, knowers of veracity, seekers of perfection.
Occultus mastery, ancient cognition, draw up and rubricate the
Covenant of the Cosmos, the Hermetic binding, for we are all stars
Entwined in the waltz of the Universe, now beating in time, restored.
Sol Invictus! As above, so below, the endlessly victorious fire of Surya, the burning eyes,
Saturnalia, let the bounties of the Earth be plentiful to those who listen to this treatise.

Behold! Kaamos is banished! Hail the everlasting Sun!

Track Name: The Awakening
On the peak of Mount Meru we danced each night,
Fear not; we hear your cries!

Beyond the Boreas, our slumber is upset,
The Earth womb rejects us, our frozen tomb melts.
Through gaps in the permafrost our spirits soon escape,
And like our brothers in millennia past we migrate.
Ever southwards we are drawn so that we may take form,
Surveying how the cataclysm has changed the imperfect orb.
The pulsing of the symphonies transmitted by the stars,
Beats in time and guides us summoning our hearts.
 
When the Earth first rebelled against her true masters,
Our brethren fled and walked with man in Lemuria.
Repulsive coupling, tarnishing our worth,
Brought about destruction of the accursed.
Then as half the equinoxes did proceed,
The deluge brought Atlantis to its knees.
And we, where day and night were in equality,
Were buried until we were set free.
 
“Let us look each other in the face.
We are Hyperboreans —
we know well enough how remote our place is….
Beyond the North, beyond the ice, beyond death —
our life, our happiness....” (Friedrich Nietzsche, ‘The Antichrist’, 1888)
As far in travel as deep in depth,
We soon take our first breath;
Inhaling intelligence,
Consuming cognisance;
We are the true essence

On the peak of Mount Meru, we danced each night,
The ionosphere illuminated only to remind,
Those who had fallen that we are without time,
And to fear not; we hear your cries!
On the peak of Mount Meru, we danced each night,
Fear not; we hear your cries!
Track Name: Ceasless Burning Desires
Sleeping, dreaming, longing for escape,
The illuminated fraternity attempted to awake,
The creators, the gods of the past,
The elder ones, who for eons were entrapped.

To transcend the fleshy shell; alchemy!
To ascend to the higher ones; theurgy!
To influence celestial bodies; astrology!
To refine the black gold; Illuminati!

Four horsemen of apocalypse unleashed,
Sacrifice of body and blood to release,
Mechanized massacres could not make us stir,
Our mother would kindle our rebirth.

To transcend the fleshy shell; alchemy!
To ascend to the higher ones; theurgy!
To influence celestial bodies; astrology!
To refine the black gold; Illuminati!

Kingdoms fell and their riches became dirt,
Their death consumed and fed upon by the Earth,
Compressed and fossilised over millennia,
Constructing a black cocoon for Agartha.

The porous layer let cosmic rays break through,
The undulating surface begins to move,
The glorious blaze of Surya,
The brilliant fire of Shamballah!

As above, so below.

The enlightened ones who spoke in riddles knew the truth,
The key to release our bonds lay within her fuel,
Carbon the incense for the ceremony,
The ceaseless burning desires of Hermetic industry.
Track Name: Covenant of the Cosmos
Come to the caverns, meet us at Telos.
Brothers of Posid, come join us.
Rise to the surface, dwellers of Shingwa.
Festivities begin in the centre of Rama.

Moving the plates through the lithosphere,
Working as one, to habitat the troposphere.

The seafloor spreads and our cities rise.
Patala surfaces, Nagas reach for the skies.
Pangea, Eden, Paradise.
Panthalassa bearing life.

Moving the plates through the lithosphere,
Working as one, to habitat the troposphere.

Ancient elders, now in endless peace,
Fulfilling the covenant of the cosmos.
Giant strides from one pole to another,
Titan brother greets Titan brother.

Mount Shasta, Mount Grosso,
Mount Epomeo, Iguacu Falls;
Where once we drowsed, we are free,
Achieving the perfection in Shonshe.

Let’s dance to the music of creation,
Like puppeteers, masters of tessellation.

Mount Shasta, Mount Grosso,
Mount Epomeo, Iguacu Falls;
Where once we drowsed, we are free,
Achieving the perfection in Shonshe.

Come to the caverns, meet us at Telos.
Brothers of Posid, come join us.
Rise to the surface, dwellers of Shingwa.
Festivities begin in the centre of Rama.

Ancient elders, now in endless peace,
Fulfilling the covenant of the cosmos.
Track Name: Alternative 3
Bio warfare; disease incubation.
Climate change; drought and starvation.
Genocide; the only solution.
That, or begin excavation.

Reduce the population,
Cut consumption,
Escape the pollution,
Mass expedition.

Engineered infrastructure breakdown.
The secret government goes underground.
The earth dies, the population thins,
Construct the ark and abandon ship.

Reduce the population,
Cut consumption,
Escape the pollution,
Mass expedition.

The most eminent in every endeavour,
Slowly but surely disappear.
Families convinced loved ones are living,
As they receive postcards from the missing.

Crodin saw a station: a base on the moon,
A stopover point for passengers and crew.
A one way journey to planetary salvation,
In 1961 they made their destination.

Ballantine observes from Jodrell Bank,
Delivers the evidence, but the tape is blank,
Decode the celebration, reveal all,
As something stirs beneath Martian soil.
Track Name: Vastness of Mana
So enamoured were we with omnipotence,
That we slept whilst they brought about destruction.
Our very conception poisoned their tender minds,
Our oozing power, like a slick of corruption.

Madness within, festering, blossoming,
Malignant vigour, fecundated, impregnated.
Behold our children; the progeny of sin,
Ravenous, delirious, senseless, infatuated.

Suckled on the teat of consciousness’ psyche,
Nourished forever on faith, hope and fears.
Without reverence, no longer almighty,
Sightless outrage across light years.

The Vastness of Mana.

Abandoned by our creation, increasingly deranged,
Endless war commences our powers are engaged.
Utopia destroyed; we seek the Red Planet,
Ravage its soil and all upon it.

Raise the forces of the North!
Summon the strength of the South!
Unleash the horrors of the West!
Let slip the tides of the East!

They inherited our traits; we gave them both love and hate.
We planned every step of the foolish ingrate.
From the moment the first beast drew breath,
We calculated the universe’s death.

Behold the father, the suns and the moons,
The mother of the universe, the destroyer of worlds.
In the blink of infinite eyes the end begins,
Somewhere in the vastness of Mana it all begins again.
Track Name: V.I.T.R.I.O.L
Orchestrating history, influencing evolution’
Fostering affinity with infinity,
We induced sublimity,
To bring about destruction.

Through parables and sortilege,
The dissolute gained knowledge.
Through transmutation;
Came salvation.
From our abode, mankind begone,
This place is ours, forever Eden.
Another orb beckons you,
As ours beckons us…..

The globe hollowed, all bounty devoured;
A carcass fit for regeneration.
Brothers who recognise our power,
Now is the time for migration.

Sprawling leviathans offering thanks,
Behemoths, Hyperboreans.

Beholden colossi on land,
The delivers of god; parasite man.

Through parables and sortilege,
The dissolute gained knowledge.
Through transmutation;
Came salvation.
From our abode, mankind begone,
This place is ours, forever Eden.
Another orb beckons you,
As ours beckons us…..

In gratitude we sing praise……

Praise of war,
Nailing the treatise to the door,
Worshipping the archimage,
Boundless quest for knowledge,
The magician’s crucifixion,
Unravelling creation.

Corporeal now; we manifest.
We survey as kings of this world!
V. I. T. R. I. O. L.

Through parables and sortilege,
The dissolute gained knowledge.
Through transmutation;
Came salvation.
From our abode, mankind begone,
This place is ours, forever Eden.
Another orb beckons you,
As ours beckons us…..
Track Name: War to the Warbringer
The air is now unfit to breathe, the insects so desecrated their host,
The final stragglers are transported; deformed detritus sobbing in false hope,
Failing to comprehend, that in all we exist,
Exodus to genesis, they flee to corrupt Tharsis.

Psychic wars; the attuned anticipate their fate.
They run no more, knowing there is no escape,
In desperate hope, their arks brought them to Noachis Terra,
The dreadful realisation; we have been everywhere forever.

Their illogical existence, the universe can no longer countenance,
A charnel house for salvation, comprehensive annihilation.
Imposing their disease, they are slurry of perversion,
Our clarion call; We Bring War to the Warbringer!

Psychic wars; the attuned anticipate their fate.
They run no more, knowing there is no escape,
In desperate hope, their arks brought them to Noachis Terra,
The dreadful realisation; we have been everywhere forever.

Fire from Phobus, death from Deimos,
The moons are the eyes of the upcoming storm,
Olympus spews, the valleys flood,
Total eradication of the human form.

The suckling sow squeals in ecstasy,
As we free another globe from the shackles of humanity.

Occultation; destruction. Destruction augurs death.
The final extermination, they no longer draw breath.
The time we allowed them has long passed,
The Fourth planet shall be their last.
Track Name: The Universes Waltz Out of Time
The profound emptiness of eternal loneliness,
Robbed of idolatry, are we meaningless?

The universes waltz out of time,
The tides ebb without flow,
Our creation, our creators,
Abandoned like spurned lovers.

Searching for meaning, the enlightening,
Adrift and wandering, bereft and wondering.

Did we conceive, or were they conceiving?

Slumber now, aeonic rest,
As we tore faith from their breasts,
We snuffed aspiration, our hopes of salvation,
And condemned ourselves to perpetual hibernation.

The cells divide, a spark of life,
Sentience over centuries,
Out of the dust they come,
To put the breath of life into us.

A new Eden, the pastures green,
A river flows out of it, watering the garden,
The spirit is reborn, the circle is complete,
Walk with us, lead them in the dance.
