Three are gates of the poisonous heart.
Through the sacrament of Al-Desac
we enter the body of the Peacock.
As our bodies become like dead trees,
we are filled with the music of Samael.
These are the sounds that transform you.
These are the melodies that destroy you.
This is the composition that revitalises the dead.
The vision that we had when we introduced music publishing into the mystical body of Belzebez was one of a repository of ritual music, aimed specically at wanderers of the Draconian path. The first year of this new venture has seen the publication of no less than eight releases. We underestimated the volume of available material within the current, and therefore each release has not received a worthy introduction. To remedy this oversight we now present a few straightforward applications of the different compositions in order to place them in their proper context. We are most grateful for the overwhelming reception that our work has received, and we hope that all of you will appreciate this belated discographic grimoire. The descriptions below are the result of several long discussions with the artists, and we have tried to convey the sometimes wordless gnosis of their art by contextualising them through the correspondences available in Qabalah, Qliphoth and Goetic Magic by Thomas Karlsson. Please keep in mind that this is intended as an inspirational guide, and is by no means intended to restrict the use or the perception of the art.
We are proud to present another ritual music release by Michael Idehall:
The storm named Egon hit the Swedish west-coast in the first weeks of 2015. This composition is based on nocturnal field recordings from that storm. EGON is a musical commemoration of a sublime natural event, and a meta-sigil of the Storm as an esoteric symbol of the chaotic forces of nature and thus a symphony of the Lilith qlipha.
During the second weekend of May (9th -11th) in 2014, the artist Michael Idehall revealed his portrayals of Gothenburg’s atemporal layers during the exhibition ‘Gothenburg Dreamtime’. Cinnober Teater provided the venue for the exhibition and together with music from artists Jonas Lindgren and Fredrik Eytzinger, as well as an opening lecture by local scholar Jimmy Elwing, it proved to be an excellent space for successfully transferring the artist’s visions to an unexpected audience. In this brief excerpt, you will find footage of the exhibited works as well as the venue for the event.
‘Gothenburg Dreamtime’ will further be documented in an exhibition catalogue featuring an introduction based on the opening talk given by Jimmy Elwing as well as poetic writings from a number of artists. These writings will accompany the exhibited pieces in a book due to be released by BELZEBEZ in 2015.
Gothenburg Dreamtime was an exhibition of the works of Michael Idehall at Cinnober Teater in Gothenburg 9-11/5 2014. The fineart was accompanied by sounds from Jonas Lindgren, Fredrik Eytzinger, and Johnny Jakobsson. The vernissage was opened with an introductory talk by the scholar Jimmy Elwing. All photos were taken by Andreas Sandlund.
