spreads seeds of Gold
The new ATARAXIA album is a poetic
race through the essence of the elements constantly inspired by the
elemental spirits of nature to reach the athanor and embody the coniunctio
oppositorum or alchemical marriage.
The white fire of heaven has brought us to fusion with Hlara Aralh,
bearer of the courage of the heart. The unfolding of the notes infuses
us with a comprehensive and pervading sense of freedom and lightness.
The tongues of crystal flame that purify without burning envelop us
and lead us to the purest, most instinctive and vivifying feeling. A
question resounds: "Do you still dream your dream?" while
the salamanders, live embers, lead us in the presence of Helios, the
Sun, and we are asked: "Do you still feel the source?"
The alchemical journey of the hero, the journey of all of us, goes on
and enters the earth element represented by the depths of the forest
and the cosmic dance of the deer.
Oruphal, root feet, phoenix wings, leads us into the underworld in the
presence of our shadow that it is necessary to look at, welcome and
integrate in order not to be servants inside and outside. As bleeding
and exhausted beasts, we find ourselves hanging in the balance between
a mystical portal and a precipice. Around us sulphureous depths, mountains
and secret beaches. Then the wind breaks in and transforms us into moon
quartz. Artemis, dryads and hamadryads, accompany us in the passage
in order to be able to create and realize in the plane of matter.
A new alchemical movement accompanies us from nigredo to albedo where
Ozoonhas, an elemental spirit that crosses us like air for a passage
up, welcomes us.
Are we antennas? Each time we reach the highest point to make us channels
of frequency, we rise in a spiral around the caduceus of Hermes-Mercury
to reset our DNA and move among the stars. Upward, in the long summer
nights, we contemplate the stars. The sylphs, elemental spirits of the
air, inspire us by blowing subtle intelligence into us.
From height to uterine abysses, between spirit and matter, enveloped
by the liquid currents of Nevenhir, elemental spirit of water, nereid
In the sea depths we sow gifts and make sonic plants grow, we appear
and disappear with very light wings embroidering dreams. As star cells,
we stay expanded and suspended taking magical forms and smiling inside.
Purified and new, we now have access to the reign of Aphrodite, Goddess
of Love, Grace and Beauty that welcomes us in a triumph of flowery meadows,
perfumes, colors, sensual whispers, essences, auroral choirs and enchanting
arias. In Myrtea, let's raise the song!
The counterpoint of the Goddess is Dionysus, God of mystical ecstasy
Through entropy and chaos a new order of adamantine purity is ringed
even if to reach it we have to cross the cave-skin of the God, his archaic
and anthropomorphic face, his laser eyes, until we are magnetized into
his mineral, animal, human and divine world. So, we are in the presence
of "otherness" in a twilight atmosphere. The God of Mountains
and Caves, the multiform God of catharsis, leads us galloping to a solar
oracle that allows us to access the last phase of the journey thats
We are in the higher mental field, Aura Magi.
In this space, the ether paints sidereal distances, gives us the power
of vision, the ability to communicate with everything and with the divine
forces of the inter-worlds. It is an initiatory passage of renewal and
intense peace, a mystical caress. We contemplate the mysteries, forms
that manifest, and we are subtle fire wrapped in mortal flesh.
The sonic journey ends with an outro that catapults us back into the
matter of the origins as renewed creatures.
We are on an island in a primeval state, the singing of the hummingbirds,
the bells, the wind and the words of power of the priestesses envelop
The CD and A5 editions of the album contain a bonus track, Amethyst,
a purple healing stone, in which, calm and contemplative, we thank for
the gifts received after two years of very hard trials (2020-2022).
Courage, beauty, intelligence, love, desire for achievement have ensured
that Pomegranate, thanks to the precious support of The
Circle Music, could take shape and flourish.
The gold vinyl edition is accompanied by an artbook of sublime paintings
by "Insetti Xilografi" and poetic writings by Francesca Nicoli,
a passionate embrace of natural elements, mythological and floral figures,
magical and sensual words and worlds. All of this achieved thanks to
the artistic skill of Nicolas Ramain, a highly talented graphic designer.
