richardlambeth Beautiful combination of dark, atmosphere melodies, intense black metal riffs and novel song arrangements. One of the best black metal records of the year so far. Favorite track: Of Divine Divergence.
PannionSeer thumbnail
PannionSeer These tracks boast some of the most intricate, memorable and evil riffs I have heard all year, and compared to previous albums, the production sounds much better, allowing unfettered access to his pitch-black and ghoulish nightmare-world. This is an impressive album. Favorite track: She Who Splits The Earth.

Emerged from swirling aeons To reach beyond the prison of flesh Encumbered with eyes bound to see To view through the ravenous bliss Exalted amidst the cosmic wilderness To rip the fabric of the spheres To twist and turn the blade in the wound of time And drink deep from within! As eternity writhes in the flood of ecstatic scarlet Break the shackles that tie me down to earth! O Queen of Earth, Heaven and Sea Mistress of Death and Rebirth! Light the crossroads before me so I may see Across the sunless span of skies and bottomless seas And as the stars above blaze in their undying fate Guide me below - through adamantine gates In the rhythm of my yearning heart - within and without!
Behold the knowledge ripped from the world's dying heart In white moon's dark and black moon's light Through waters of blindness and fires of sight Watchers of the great below shall carve out the mark Cry aloud The Fallen One's unhallowed might! On the wings of divine fires I shall soar high To break through the firmaments dead eyes! O great Trident of the Crossroads Pierce through profane doubt! Behold the ecstasy of fire and flesh Dive deep into the starless depths!
Apotheosis 04:13
Oh how I yearn to gaze into your bottomless eyes For I am become sea without shore and a night without stars To calm the anxious heart with comfort of your infinite light To dive deep into your sacred blight and bask in glory of unending night And as my vessel's fires burn bright Ancient winds guide me far Where no man has gone before - to the blackness below and beyond! To the shores of this ancient night Where black waves crash into whirlpools of time To the edge of all that is known To the roadless paths and beyond! And as space and time transfigures Come forth swirling in phantom light Let the subterranean streams erupt and transform into waters of life With yearning spirit and will unbroken From depths of sea of night I ask: Thrust deep your dagger of truth and bury your venomous flames within the wound!
O mistress of ancient night Grant me the gift of unclouded sight Oracle of luminous dark and bearer of nocturnal light You, the offspring of starry skies Treading the shadowless nights And heavens which tremble before your might Come forth, o will without form Whirling in flames that transform To you I am sworn To you I am sworn! Make me a vessel of your unhallowed Teitanic blood! O great cosmic soul! You who negate all space and time You who shine so bright even the stars pale before you Reveal to me the pathways of you divine guidance And allow me to gaze upon thy precious light As subterranean streams erupt As darkness swarms and void calls I ask - emerge from luminous dark!
O source of all O bearer of wandering flames O heaven and earth - unbound by lucid frame Bursting with conscious rays Painfully I yearn on your path divine To be consumed by the wakeful fire With holy voice I call on Thee - Noumenic, Harmonic, Chaotic, Chthonic! Lead me beyond the veil of night Where the shadows of the unjudged reside O Holy Mother of oppositions hear my plea! O may I live all the daytime in faith and in might divine And in holy fire may I die every night of thine!
In nomine matris In nomine reginæ In nomine clarissimæ essent stella Soul's ascending Thy Torches' flame burning in me O mutinous star! Grant me light and shine through me O Queen of Death! Emerge and bring terror no mortal heart can bear Engulf me, o boundless Plutonian night For I am a son of the Trident!

After two years of dreamless sleep, ARS MAGNA UMBRAE reemerges with a cathartic offering to the blood-drinking Witchmother of Astral Crossroads. Once again, calling upon the subterranean currents that flow through the arteries of heaven and earth, to banish the old, invoke the new and transform.
ARS MAGNA UMBRAE's most intense, concise and demanding effort so far, “Apotheosis” takes the listeners on an occult black metal journey across the shores of plutonian nights, through starless aeons and oneiric fields, to later plunge them into the depths of boundless devotion and joyous madness. A fusion of dream and reality, embodying a descent into the blighted pits of the divine, serving as an integral initiation into the ancient art and craft of Chthonic worship.
