With the cancellation of the Nachtmystium/Jarboe tour I did what I do in most situations, I took the great musical energy generated from learning and playing the amazing Jarboe, SWANS, World Of Skin tracks we were to perform and write new music. I recruited my good friend Nic Le Ban, who directed me through the material of the live set and long time collaborator and valued brother in art Ferenc Teglas to add their creative genius and gave them a week to do it.
This album is the result and it’s one hell of a dense and dark experience to rise from such a spontaneous burst of energy and creativity. I thank my brothers of dark art for blasting open the gateways between worlds on these songs.
The coming year will bring at least two East/West Choronzon releases, the first being Escape From Nullworld and then a Choronzon East/West revisiting of MKCCCXXXIII, an earlier version of which about twenty thousand of you grabbed from Megaupload before they got shut down.
11/05/2012 – As they round out the twenty-sixth year mark in their career, experimental Industrial Blackmetal act CHORONZON continue to build on an ever expanding palette with their most varied, unusual and harrowing release to date.
Just in time for the apocalypse and completed as a major storm makes landfall on the US East Coast comes a new album from the chaotes of Choronzon. The Consummation of metanoia is the pain of the psyche growing into new states of being. The Consummation of metanoia is the overwhelming transcendence even of healing to a transformation beyond the human to the essence of being human. A joyful opening to psychosis as means of preparation for easier adaptation. An embrace of fragility as a way to feel the full force of one’s strength.
With ///Consummation//\\Metanoia\\\ Choronzon completes a creative and narrative arc that began with Ziggurat Of Dead Shibboleths. The code of esoteric insight broken, freedom declared under cover of night and now the mind is transformed and chakreas are open. This album is the Veil of Maya lifting as the inner being is revealed after many lifetime’s of journey through war and illusion.
Choronzon are opening up to yet another set of unexplored worlds on this, featuring electric standup bass, keys and percussion from Ferenc Teglas and the multiversal soundscapes of BALEYYG. “We gathered through astral projection to a pre-determined catacomb to generate the sounds by spectral means.” Says Choronzon chaote P. Emerson Williams on the process of creating ///Consummation//\\Metanoia\\\. “Between the three of us we really tapped into multiple streams.” declares Ferenc Teglas. “I got to experience the 333 current as a whispering voice in the distance. This is a very unique album.” Says BALEYYG.
///Consummation//\\Metanoia\\\ is released by PANICMACHINE and will be available from iTunes and other major digital retailers in December. Look for a book that completes and sums up the trilogy to come later this month along with a DVD version of ///Consummation//\\Metanoia\\\.
