Spectral Lore and Mare Cognitum release “Wanderers: Astrology of the Nine”

 

Veterans from countless successful releases including a seminal split album (“Sol”, 2013) that cemented their friendship and earned them unconditioned esteem and love from the atmospheric black metal aficionados, SPECTRAL LORE’s sole member Ayloss and Jacob Buczarski from MARE COGNITUM join forces once again for another mystical trip through the stars. Monumental and daring in its length and scope, “Wanderers: Astrology Of The Nine” is a thematic journey through our solar system, illustrating and anthropomorphizing it into mythology which parallels our own humanity with the science of these mysterious formations.
“Inspired by Gustav Holst’s Planets Suite, we continue the exploration we began many years ago with ‘Sol’,” explains the artists; “we traverse outwards from the sun to each planet, weaving fables through a synthesis of their distinct physical features and mythical personhood representing these features.”
Graced with a wondrous cover painting by the inimitable Elijah Tamu,“Wanderers: Astrology Of The Nine” is nothing but a never-ending quest for mankind’s cosmic origins, a celestial and philosophical observation on the notes of MARE COGNITUM and SPECTRAL LORE’s music, perfectly in the balance between progressive yet furious black metal, and moments of ecstatic, melodic beauty.
“While we wish to capture the awe of the raw, natural beauty of our cosmic surroundings, we have also created our own cosmically inspired lore with each planet as our muse,” say Ayloss and Buczarski; ”therefore, each track is a narrative which represents our admiration for each cosmic entity: the psychic manifestations that were conjured through our own wonder of the majestic planetary system we call home.”
