Feeling the worms eating my flesh... I'm half alive and I know I'm half dead A part of me is in this world and a part in the astral plane The only remnant of my soul: my flesh temple, has forever failed La muerte se aproxima Ritus absconditus ex Theosulphuros!

May the eternal flare of will enlighten the path we are to cross May the splendor of the dark flame guide me through the venomous thorns Nigredo de mi alma, una existencia anulada... Genocidio de mi karma, la rueda ha sido frenada... Ice - Shadows - Fire - Golden Light, aflame! Mystic lotus flower pollinating in my vein Ofidio antiguo, Serpiente del Edén, Más sabio y más viejo que Matusalén, Ven a mi e inyéctame con tu poder La maldición humana no voy a padecer Ex Nigredo, from the Abyss I have come, The fires of Theion burn away all of my "clay" Theosulphuros, from my body, mind and soul... Alchemy of the Spirit, apotheosis of the Being Ex Nigredo, from the Abyss I have come, The waters of Tehom wash away all of my "clay" Theosulphuros, from my body, mind and soul... Del abismo salió mi ser y al abismo voy a volver Oh, Light Bearer The Dark Christ, Serpent God, are you here or is this a dream? Pour your blood on me, for with it I bathe and with it I create Only those who saw the flaws of creation... Only those with chaos, who found in the abyss the true light... Only those who unfollowed the lies of the world... Only those with nous, who willingly returned to the void... Oh, Light Bearer The Dark Christ, Serpent God, are you here or is this a dream? Burn upon me, for with you I transform and like you I become Theion! Ice - Shadows - Fire - Golden Light, aflame! Mystic lotus flower pollinating in my vein Air - Light - Earth - Crimson Darkness, reign! As soon as I ascend everything else will be dead Dead, everything will be dead Answer me "God"... For what profit is it to a man if he gains the world, and looses his own soul? Ex Nigredo, from the Abyss I have come, The fires of Theion burn away all of my "clay" Theosulphuros, from my body, mind and soul... Alchemy of the Spirit, apotheosis of the Being Ex Nigredo, from the Abyss I have come, The waters of Tehom wash away all of my "clay" Theosulphuros, from my body, mind and soul... Del abismo salió mi ser y al abismo voy a volver Fuego eterno - Multiverso - Vitriol May the transformation of my particles reflect my essence May the "dark night of the soul" enlighten me, through the restless mourns Nigredo de mi alma, oscuridad intravenosa... Antídoto: sabiduría venenosa... Void of voids, I'm returning home I self-sacrifice for the consummation of your light Light of Darkness, the essence of my being Downwards I've gone, yet upwards my sulfur flows Disintegrating temple-corpse, to flow Emanating spirit-nous, to grow With Theos above and Sulphuros below, I light the fire that in my soul will never expire Del seno de la oscuridad nace la luz que ilumina mi camino ardiente aún después de la muerte To Darkness and Beyond, in the glory of Death Ex Nigredo, el abismo ha transformado mi ser.

Fill the chalice, open my heart... Enter Drown me in Chaos. Darkness is my Light Idols of man, idols of ungrace, corrupted is your kind Destruction of the body, misery of the spirit - condemnation of the mind Come, be my guest. I welcome you with a spire in my heart Burn in my chest. O, Spirit of Fire, behold your will in my hands I seek the light without reason through the fire... (Darkness) ...I see through light the true reason I'm the fire From the mundane I detached, I threw what was left of my humanity to hell I refused to believe that their god was The One who created my soul... who created my being Come, be my guest. I welcome you with a spire in my heart Burn in my chest. O, Spirit of Fire, behold your will in my hands Fill the chalice, open my heart... Enter Drown me in Chaos. Darkness is my Light ¡La oscuridad es mi luz, y la muerte mi libertad! ¡La oscuridad es mi luz, y la muerte mi libertad! La luz al final del túnel soy yo! Combustionando desde adentro con Theion Se va acercando la gran transición sagrada, cúspide del ermitaño de Tehom Darkness is my Light

Soy verdugo del cosmos y toda la creación Aprieto el yugo sagrado y causo la inmolación Soy la eutanasia para la armonía divina, el golpe y la mejilla, la navaja y la herida Sufrir por conveniencia, porque solo así evoluciona tu conciencia Lesionar tu alma y mente para ser sabio al llegar a la muerte Me estoy retorciendo en la desgracia Muero y reencarno sin clemencia Voy arrastrándome como gusano comiendo tierra Martirio y viacrucis para salir de esta mierda [Heautontimorumenos] Profana la esencia de tu inocencia Déjate poseer por la creencia de que como ser humano eres un par·sito Existir ya es un castigo, así que ahora te digo: La muerte es sólo la entrada al túnel. ¡Autosacrifìcate! Tu vida es una insignificante ilusiûn, una vil mentira manipulada ¿A poco crees que esta c·rcel de carne es propia? Ni tu ni nadie vale en lo absoluto, pon tus pies en la tierra Lo único que puede valer es que tus actos dejen huella Lo que tú no sabes es que te vas a morir y no todo acaba ahí Quieren hacerte creer que no hay nada después, pero si lo hay Mas te vale usar tu tiempo para iluminarte, e ir abriendo las piernas para recibir tu bendición: La muerte El regreso al vacío absoluto, la oscuridad reabsorbiendo el alma La sucia humanidad me asquea, odio todo lo que me encadena a ella Mi obra negra vivirá en la posteridad, pues antes de morir a muchos me voy a llevar Vélo como un acto de piedad y como el más grande tributo a la oscuridad [Heautontimorumenos] Soy verdugo del cosmos y toda la creación Aprieto el yugo sagrado y causo la inmolación Soy la eutanasia para la armonía divina, el golpe y la mejilla, la navaja y la herida Sufrir por conveniencia, porque solo así evoluciona tu conciencia Lesionar tu alma y mente para ser sabio al llegar a la muerte Las pulsaciones en mi pecho cesan Se me está saliendo el alma del cuerpo Del cerebro el oxigeno y mi identidad se están escapando El cianuro existencial me ha hecho efecto [Heautontimorumenos] El arte de mi historia va a quedar inmortalizado Me auto-sacrifico para trascender esta existencia Mi cabeza se va rodando y mi cuerpo se desvanece... Eternamente Heautontimorumenos! -------------------------------- I'm the hangman of cosmos and all creation. I tighten the sacred knot and cause immolation. I'm the euthanasia for divine harmony, the strike and the cheek, the razor and the wound. Suffering as a convenience, because only then does your consciousness evolve. Injuring your soul and mind to be wise upon reaching death. I'm writhing in misfortune. I keep dying and reincarnating without mercy. I go crawling like a worm eating dirt. A martyrdom and via crucis to get out from this shit. [Heautontimorumenos] Desecrate the essence of your innocence. Let the belief possess you that as a human being you're a parasite. To exist is already a punishment, so now I tell you: Death is only the entrance to the tunnel. Self-sacrifice! Your life is an insignificant illusion, a vile manipulated lie. Do you really think that you own this flesh prison? Neither you nor anyone is worth anything, put your feet on the ground. The only thing that has any value is that your actions leave a mark. What you don't know is that you're going to die and not everything ends there. They want you to believe that there's nothing after death, but there is. You better use your time left to enlighten yourself, and start spreading your legs to receive your blessing: death. The return to absolute emptiness, darkness reabsorbing the soul. Human filth sickens me, I hate everything that chains me to it. My black work will live in posterity, because before I die I'll take many with me. See it as an act of piety, and as the greatest tribute to darkness. [Heautontimorumenos] I'm the hangman of cosmos and all creation. I tighten the sacred knot and cause immolation. I'm the euthanasia for divine harmony, the strike and the cheek, the razor and the wound. Suffering as a convenience, because only then does your consciousness evolve. Injuring your soul and mind to be wise upon reaching death. The pulsations in my chest are ceasing. My soul is coming out of my body. From the brain, oxygen and my identity are escaping. The existential cyanide has had it's effect on me. [Heautontimorumenos] The art of my story will be immortalized. I sacrifice myself to transcend this existence. My head goes away rolling and my body faints... Eternally Heautontimorumenos!

Ô Créature du Sel! Sois puissant comme les Cendres du Sacrement, pourvu de tous les Pouvoirs de la Sorcellerie, et efficient pour marquer les Sceaux Sacrés; Que ta Force soit telle la Poudre des Os des Grands Anciens et des Ancêtres. Sois libéré de toute Souillure et de toute Altération et reste Purs envers l’Esprit Un.
6.
Ô Créature du Feu! Demeure aux abords de ce Cercle telle la Flamme Infernale du Tartare. Demeure à l’intérieur ce Cercle telle la Flamme Céleste des Etoiles. Sois libre de toute souillure et de toute altération, car tu es la Pureté même de l’Esprit Un. Brûle Radiant et Eternel: Coeur de l’Etoile au Coeur de la Terre, Coeur de la Terre dans le Coeur de l’Homme, tu es Immortel! Feu de l’Esprit Un.
7.
Ô Créature de l’Eau! Sois puissant comme la fourche du Styx, par lequel tous les Dieux sont liés et obligés sous Serment. Remplace le Sang de ceux qui se sont tués dans l’adoration. Sois libéré de toute Souillure et de toute Altération et reste Purs envers l’Esprit Un.
8.
Let the passage be free unto the crawling chaos. Open unto me the way across angled time and curved space.

Two years after the release of “Metamorphosphoros”, PRECARIA returns with “Theosulphuros”, the second and final part of a diptych of split albums dedicated to the concept of “Theion”, the divine fire which transforms those who seek true light through darkness. Accompanying the Mexican black metal band in its spiritual voyage there's ÔROS KAÙ, a mysterious one-man project from Belgium which debuted in June 2020 with "Imperii Templum Aries" (to be released on vinyl by I, Voidhanger Records).

The world “Theion” translates from ancient Greek as both "sulphur" and "divine fire", and finds a precise depiction in Elijah Tamu's sumptuous cover painting (a continuation of the “Metamorphosphoros” original art), developed from an idea of PRECARIA's Hermit and featuring a female figure suspended upside down. “The figure represents the human soul in the process of death, transitioning into a greater realm of existence,” explains Tamu, a devout Christian who explores the boundaries between light and darkness not only through his paintings, but also with his own black metal band, PANEGYRIST. “The fiery wings indicate the fiery principle whose source is God,” the artist continues, “a force that destroys illusions and false aspects of the self, while refining and revitalizing the deeper essence of ourselves.”
Hermit of PRECARIA puts it down in a simpler way: “It's a process of purification, an alchemy of the soul,” he says, and describes the concept behind “Theosulphuros” as “an observation on spiritual ascension and descension during life and after death.” PRECARIA's savage kind of black metal is exactly that: the representation of a soul in turmoil, done through a feast of dark riffs, tempo changes and sulphurous melodies.

ÔROS KAÙ is no less visionary and magical in its purification process and its quest for divine darkness. Imagining death as a gateway of transformation, the Belgian artist performs an opening ritual the way ancient cultures did. “The Egyptians usually opened the mouth of the dead to let the soul fly to the other life,” he tells; “the purpose of my music is the same: to open the way to make things possible. I'm under the ascendant sign of Aries (Kaù), and that means that I'm at the beginning of things and actions, leaded by the first flame of life.” Despite the violent and uncompromising approach, ÔROS KAÙ's black metal exorcisms remain meditative and hypnotic, and give to the spiritual quest of “Theosulphuros” a perfect end with the monumental “Solve”, which releases tension through psychedelic noises and ambient fumes.
