The song “Apollyonic Enstasis” from “APOLLYON” available to stream through the link below.
“Ekstasis is the state of being outside-of-itself. A pilgrimage of impure knowing into that which is yet unknown – identified in the grave as the vehicle for the great Other. This is “contrasted” or rather followed, by the state of Enstasis (being inside-of-itself), where the subject is submerged into itself again, yet in a wholly pure and direct form. The unknown has thus become known or, in other words, the subject experiences itself by virtue of nothing but its own clarified substance. And it is about this state of pure selfhood that the album Apollyon delves into and speaks of; the holy position of unmediated existence that is only attained through a descent into uttermost darkness. Here it is revealed as the Abysmal Angel, the Sun of Midnight, the circle crowned at the heart of the circle. And all that you believe to be you is but a reflection of this monstrous angel, a swaying shadow cast from the true light of Reality, desperately clutching to the shores of a world as pointlessly drifting as your supposed self.
But out of the black ocean, out of the bottomless cavern and the wide-opened tomb, a song is sung; an oracular song of cold murder and wordless revelation, of infernal mysteries and sacred abominations. And it says: “γνῶθι σεαυτόν”
