Black metal mavericks Ignis Haereticum premiere the new track "Lifting the Veil" at heavily trafficked web-portal NoCleanSinging.com. The track hails from the band's highly anticipated second album, Autocognition of Light, set for international release on December 1st via Goathorned Productions. Hear Ignis Haereticum's "Lifting the Veil" in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Riding high on the towering immensity of their Luciferian Gnosis debut album in 2014, these Colombian occultists now aim for more transcendent heights and fathomless depths with a six-song/41-minute record that serves as one, unified work. Arguably even more towering than its no-less-considerable predecessor, Autocognition of Light dazzles and defies with an eerily seamless ease, its iteration of orthodox black metal soundly trumping the hapless throngs of Deathspell Omega worship. For this creation is imbued with true belief and solemn reverence: Ignis Haereticum are sonic mages weaving spells both terrible and trance-inducing, their descent into the abyss assured but surely not the final destination.
Ignis Haereticum's new opus was conceived and written as an entire piece instead of just a bunch of songs. It is an illuminative treatise of the band's gnosis, which is manifested through two ways: the purgative way and the illuminative way. The purgative way deals with the active purification of the internal and external senses, the passions, the understanding and the will, through mortification and meditation. Here, the spiritual is nourished by the physical, reminding us all of our imminent mortality.
At the end of this first part begins the infused contemplation, whereby the soul rises towards the illumination. It is here where we are aware of our divine condition and we leave behind the attachments of the flesh and the limitations of this material world. Bringing for us, the next path: the illuminative way, which is the recognition of ourselves, our nature, the state in which we are aware of our spirituality free of dogmas. Here, our humanity loses all value and only remains our divine communion with the light of knowledge, which is none other than the reflection of our own light that dwells in the depths of our consciousness. Fiat Lvx!
The next testament to the Autocognition of Light is the track "Lifting the Veil," which can be heard exclusively HERE, courtesy of NoCleanSinging.com. The first testament is the previously revealed "Glorious Wounds," which can be heard at Ignis Haereticum's Bandcamp HERE. Pre-order info can be found HERE.
