The horizon, an unfathomable darkness Beacons of light within, gleam dimly From the farthest of existence The offspring observes A history written in reverse Leading to One Exhalation Of an unknown breath. Parallel structures emerge between incomparable proportions Revealed symmetry from aberrant appearance Awareness paints a mirage of self-singularity From it, a volition of immortality The vessel of intellect thrusts the sight light years away An acceleration bending the fabric of spacetime Leading into the Heart of the Cosmos. Wandering the blackened void, there lie Elemental whispers of the primordial ordinance Attracting each other, forming clouds Which collapse into higher densities A unity of spherical mass With a diadem as umbilical chord Thus, the God-Kings are born The ever-burning forges of the cosmos Bearers of the strength to meld the core of matter together From the remnants, their children arise Hearth-givers and messangers to them alike. (enas skoteinos stixos) The sight, however wondrous, returns incomplete. A rope of one lineage connects existence all throughout, from weightless elements to beasts of metal mass from oneness to mind-bending complexity Spectral, though is the hand that infuses with Spirit If it is not grabbed, how won't it always vanish? When even Gods one day fade out. The dream is dying, the mirror cracking The begotter cannot protect the brethen Yet lays down everything at their grasp. Within the endless dark sea of unknowing The rays of far-away beacons Still conjoin in patterns meaningful An explosion of evitability The self-transforming agents Divine feedback mechanisms We are Soldiers Volition of the Universe Sentinels of All Murderers of Self Scorners of Oblivion Impermanence and Transformation Complexity and Bonding Continuity of Logos, Extra-Conscious Transcendance A spiral path we must walk Towards an ever-dark horizon.

___________________________

Originally released in 2013, "Sol" is the acclaimed conceptual split album which contributed to establish SPECTRAL LORE and MARE COGNITUM within today's atmospheric black metal scene. A scene that they helped to develop, bringing in new and exciting stimuli together with a daring, progressive approach, transforming and transcending black metal without betraying its primary nature: that of a probe to plumb the human microcosm reflected in macrocosmic abysses.

Far from being a typical split album, "SOL" is a collaboration on many levels, starting from the conceptual and moving on to the musical. Themes and riffs have been cross-referenced and transfigured, structures have been put in proportion, lyrics have been written in parallel.
Conceptually, "Sol" is an attempt at a kind of cosmological philosophy; searching the vast, cold expanses of the universes for traces of meaning and purpose. What it is out there that is fundamental, absolute and shared? What can we learn about ourselves by looking outward, to the void and the inanimate?

SPECTRAL LORE and MARE COGNITUM reintroduce those important questions once again, thanks to the long-awaited and remastered reissue of “Sol”, an album that already made the history of atmospheric black metal.
