I AM, WE ARE A Timeless sacred art There is a spirit hidden in the darkness a Divine spark buried in the darkness of matter The wholeness of our being wounded, inferior and unconscious Stunning cosmic perfection Our wounds, are indispensible for the accomplishment these shadow parts the timeless dimension of our being To come to understanding the Totality of our being the Wholeness of our being the Vastness of the Self Give rise to all creation the Highest value is to be found in the Lowest the Blessing is to be found in the curse the Wisdom is to be found in ignorance Salvation scorn and revulsion Contempt and division The art has no enemies, except the ignorant Become accomplished in the Sacred Art of Alchemy Connect and conspire to co-inspire For I am thou and thou art I It is a living paradox It is in the flesh - our flesh It is clear It is of the art It is of the man himself A Timeless Sacred Art The deepest blessings are found in the distressing dark shadows It is beyond understanding and thou art lost in the Mystery Lost in the womb of the mother the human soul What nature left imperfect the art perfects

Titan Souls 04:23
MEN BORN FROM THE TITANS' BLOOD Light, Day, Waking, Life Darkness, Night, Sleep, Death Titans and Titanides as old as the ages born of Earth and Heaven the first polarization the Unifying force Where did the Titans come? The body - The Titan The soul - The Divine Titans In six males with six females As male and female in Unity Still in unity Where did the Titans come? From the deep human cosmic unconscious Titans In six males with six females Souls of infite passion Those of the fire I stand eye to eye with Those of the fire The Titans The Shamans The High Priests Where did the Titans go? It is unknown Titans In six males with six females The primordials, our souls Still waiting

Ageless 05:10
Aika, Sielu, Ajaton The Soul is Ageless All time is simultaneous From outside of time as we know it Outside of yourself add time a reference point of before and after no reference point no time Ether - Matter - Forever Outside of time Beings from outside of our time are we confronting our Dark Side ARE WE?

Their world was my world both Cosmic and Spiritual The Instinctual Increatum, an Uncreated the Unconscious Autonomous an Uncreated To recognize this universe is not speaking literally but,like in a dream is speaking to us symbolically Our experience of suffering Limiting, problematic and reinforcing Recognize the origin Transpersonal and archetypal These shadow parts Descend into the unconscious Into the depths of our own darkness Into the blackness of death A night sea journey Like the dragon [uroboros] A being without beginning or end The darkness darker than dark The seed for the future birth The journey that all of us must take Our own intrinsic wholeness A great uncreated mystery The ungraspable The virginal mother The root of itself And rooted in itself The arcane substance The true man The Self Suffers Is tortured The Uncreated Transformed (and then) Rises again.

Where the beginning starts where the end ends or are they just the same? What is the end of the Universe Is there one? What if there is no end Can there be a beginning? Whatever the truth is I want to end where I started I stand at the center of creation The very origin itself Is lost in the dim mists of time You and I we are just two Invisible specks in the cosmos But also we are the cosmos. A singular nowness eternally unfolding In endlessly diverse and novel patterns The true man, The Self The shaman, Ecstatic techniques of dreams, of visions and trances The realm of invisible Causal reality The death of the body Eternal existence Confer upon the wisdom Confer upon the power Confer upon existence Secular spiritual existence
7.
Surrupu 03:36
When gods were in the ways of men Records burned in stone The gods grew discontent Tired of the incessant noise The plague It will come the Surrupu disease Where are your gods now? Make sacrifice to the plague god The god of the Plague reigned The goddess watched and wept The lungs of the earth will have room to breath

Understand the significance of Numbers the whole scheme of Universes how they function the Messenger - the Illuminator - Transformation. Understand black and white Composites and primes the movement of the Zodiac Through revelations and intuition to entire planetary octaves It is of little consequence what they do Will you remain in occlusion? Understand A change is needed On a societal level in consciousness within ourselves The old ways work no more, things need to go. 0 - Cycles, cycles, cycles the limitless ALL 1 - The singular I the individual the straight path the line of continuum 2 - Duality and polarity Two merge to become one 3 - The point of trinity of fire, action and will 4 - Solidity of form function - endurance - permanence 5 - the Pentagram the Elements Tuli - Vesi - Ilma - Maa - Henki 6 - I have felt the waters of chaos I have birthed what will flow 7 - The Seven Sacred Vowels The Seven Major Chakras The Seven Dragon Queens 8 - This is the point of sacrifice what I have gathered for myself I came upon a Path of choosing held by the Gates of Time 9 - True wisdom We test our strengths We refine our weaknesses the threshold of our glory 10 - The truth of my beginnings the knowledge of my final end The All that has been and will be the Spirit of the Limitless All

about

CD& LP Out through I, Voidhanger Records
MC self-released

"Finland's KHANUS introduced themselves to the metal audience in 2016 with the “Rites Of Fire” EP, a piece of shamanic metal of death perfectly underlining the ritualistic feel and the spiritual qualities of their music. Two years later, the band is back with its first full-length album, “Flammarion”, a monumental achievement that confirms the uniqueness of their proposal.

KHANUS' music oscillates between trance-inducing melodies almost bordering on hypnotic psychedelia and the primitive pulse of black/death metal, all seen through a distorting avant-garde lens that exalts the weirdness of the style without sacrificing brutality and aggressiveness. Together with LordT's powerful drumming, Sovereign's theatrical growls and nervous guitar playing incarnate the primordial side of KHANUS, while Meltiis' majestic soprano choirs play a more spiritual chord, adding a distinctive touch to the music, always incredibly dense and richly textured.

Boldly opening with a truly personal revisitation of DARKTHRONE's “The Serpent's Harvest”, “Flammarion” is a modern grimoire which deciphers the unfathomable depths of human soul by revealing its mystical and divine origins, as reflected in the pagan magic, occultism, mythology, ancient superstitions and esoteric knowledges that crossed mankind's path throughout the millennia. KHANUS' “Flammarion” owns the irresistible charm of all that sacred culture, and burns it alive at the stake of underground metal.

Deluxe Digipack CD with 12-page lyric booklet out July 20.
LP out late August, strictly limited to 200 copies on black vinyl, with a 4-page 12"x12" poster booklet."
