I am darkness That is the light And the stillness That is the dancing The paradoxical energy The place of darkness From which all light emanates The no-form abyss That contains all the possibility In finding you can access Any expression of the light The energy of blue night Simply be still Allow that expression To take shape from darkness From the darkness emerges The essence self Sit in stillness Embrace the journey Of insight and integration The color is black The womb of the larger self

Orgone 04:30
At the very roots of existence Blockades of the free flow of this energy Orgone A vessel with character Armoring - Inhibition Spontaneous - Expression Of joy - And pleasure In life - In life The nature of this cosmic energy Orgone - Orgone A life furthering reproductive force Or in the absence of such condition A killer of life - Orgone Enthropy - Principles Of - The Universe A creative - Substratum In all of nature - The odic force A massless - Omnipresent Substance - Luminiferous Aether - Inert Matter - Orgastic Potency - Orgone A life furthering reproductive force Or in the absence of such condition A killer of life

The flame of the divine goddess And the lighting blew up the stratosphere Piercing deep under the earth The fire from the goddess KHAA - The daughters of fire KHAA - The daughters of fire KHAA - The daughters of fire Creation, do enter the pits of the living You will all carry the flame The daughters of fire The daughters of fire Brought down with the lightning From the vortex/void KHAA - The daughters of fire KHAA - The daughters of fire Khanus - Khanus - Khanus - Khanus Sex magick and creation The forbidden fruit of life The slithering, the serpent Come my child Rise and fill the lands And become the elite

-----------------------------------

Hailing from Oulu, Finland, KHANUS perform Shamanic Metal of Death by exploring the boundaries of matter, spirit, consciousness and the universe. The hypnotic, tribal quality of their riffs, the mystic melodies and the circular structure of the songs cut through the walls of perception like a dagger of enlightenment that tears the grey veil of reality, while chanting-like choirs and soprano vocals – combined with intense growls – accentuate the ritualistic feel and the spiritual vertigo the music provokes.
Apparently simple and primitive, KHANUS' style is totally unique, dense and richly textured, constantly oscillating between the sheer brutality and furiousness of black-tinged death metal and a meditative state of trance that borders on psychedelia.
Mixed and mastered by Cam Sinclair (Bölzer, Diocletian, Witchrist) and graced by a fascinating cover art drawn by Romanian artist Luciana Nedelea, the “Rites Of Fire” EP is an act of creative Magick, the first statement of a band boldly leaning towards the Infinite.
