'"Passio et mors Domini nostri Jesu Christi secundum Lucam' - Tribute to Krzysztof Penderecki
"The new work Of Darkness continues its constant search process, this time making visible the negation of art through the combination of various forms of musical expression. Using this as a contrast between the magnificent Gospel according to Luke by Krzysztof Penderecki and the canonical forms of musical language, this new work explores the fundamental mystery of the death and resurrection of Jesus and subverts the aesthetic and expressive values of the tradition. Moreover, the alchemical crucible that is Of Darkness is also used this time to distill the essence of the Adventus Scorpiace Gnostics, the work of Tertullian against the siren calls of Gnosticism." - Gradual Hate Records
