Dolorian : Voidwards



"AND OPEN THE WOMB. WAKEN THE HORNS. PETRIFIED ARMS MARK WAY THROUGH THE SACRED FIRE."

the words posted here amongst the rest of the review are the solution. they solve the code. the code found on the cover. amongst the transgressing lowercase lyrics the capital letters reach out. it is revealed.

"IN DREAMS I AM WITHOUT BEING. THE SILVERY MOVEMENTS THAT ABSORB THE FIRE FORM THE HORIZON WITHOUT END."

tales of an ultimate journey through darkness. where dispair once was. now there is a ritual passage of the spirit. through the shamanistic beliefs. to the zenith which marks the star over the head. to the nadir which marks the star below the feet. to the ECSTAsy amongst the skull-bearer's dance. to 'The One Whose Name Has No End' of lovecraftian resemblance. to the passages of the unburning fire of the north and the sun. to the buddhisTIC geometric rituals of the mandala. the voyages of the mind.

"THE FLOW OF TEN FIRES. THE LAND REVERSED TOWARDS NADIR. THE ILLUSION SWALLOWED BY THE LUNAR WATER."

'When All The Laughter Has Gone' blends together with 'Dolorian'. a twofold aura. one side relaxed and spaced with echoing simple guitarplay. the void lays ground for the instrumentals. the space holds the key to many of the TRACKS. the other aura impales the calm flow. loud riffage of blackish proportions emanate harshly from the dark conscious. dual black metal screams. intense. cruel. horrifying. unspeakable. through the twofold aura the being awakens.

"UNSEEN PATH OF TIME IMPALES THE SPHERES. THE INMOST VISIONS ARE AWAKENING. APPROACH THE CHAOS."

time passed as the maestros focused on dark industrial/dark ambient projects. they let Dolorian in peace. from their other journeys they return. matured but the sound of the old resonate deafeningly. the path of Dolorian is grander than the past journeys. the path of the atmospheric spaced doom/black rises towards its zenith.

"AWAKENED O EXISTENCE O O O"
