Includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
The last Coph Nia full length album, released in 2007. Free to download but purchase includes 4 bonus tracks, a high quality live video of 'The Oath'. Full artwork in PDF format and my own comments about each track. WARNING! One of the bonus tracks is an extremely silly synth pop version of 'The Oath'... Not for the squeamish. You have been warned.
The Thelemic Warlord is back; and after years of silence and solitude Aldenon once again presents us with a true masterpiece - "The Dark Illuminati - A Celestial Tragedy in two acts".
This is an epic saga of eight illuminating pieces trying to penetrate the core of the Darkest Light. Aldenon's characteristic growling coupled with Linus's bombastic drums and Karin's serene voice come together in a tapestry of ritualistic, penetrating and sinister ambiance. Included are three timeless classics in new and improved formats... Choirs, strings and intricate orchestrations bring about an unforgettable tale that won't leave any listener untouched; possibly giving rise to more questions, than it poses answers.
So what is it?
The Dark Illuminati - The Dark Enlightened....
A global elite attempting to enforce a world government?
An organization controlling world affairs?
The New World Order?
Or a Secret Few, merely seeking to preserve the Dark Light....?
Well... The Stage is set.
The Music begins to play.
But the Script has been lost.
