The Great Descent - Strictly limited digipak with talisman
Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album
OrosKhaos is a direct manifestation of our path and journey, and The Great Descent is the first chapter in our expression of it. It represents the monad and trident, within the centre of which the eye, or the consciousness resides, and the journey that begins thereof toward unity and oneness of spirit. The entire expression is to be seen as one totality, but is split between two pieces. The Great Descent being the most fundamental portion, and Fivefold Impetus Toward Unity (Part I) being an offering of both this and a separate greater whole. Fivefold Impetus Toward Unity is a piece of five parts, each of which shall be released on consecutive expressions, until upon the fifth, it reaches its whole. It is an exploration of the four principle elements and central spirit that make up the divine five pointed star.
It is presented as a digipak; each of which includes a hand made talisman of Rowan wood that we have correctly acquired and consequently inscribed and consecrated in accordance with our work.
Open your hearts, open your souls, open your ears but close your two eyes and make way for the one that is the third.
Includes unlimited streaming of The Great Descent
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

The Great Descent
It was in my brothers hand and my reapers eye, that the flaming torch reside.
Within a hidden key that hid a torrential tide,
That carried the waves of ecstasy.
A stave received, a stave unseen.
A stave realised and a stave seen.
A sigil of divine means.
For it all began with one great descent,
That battered consciousness and banished lament.
Falling with the friction of boundary;
Heart in my mouth and limit around me.
Rigid resistance as panic ensued, that sent me crying to caverns imbued.
Higher, like fire I was consumed,
As I built myself a funeral pyre.
Loosen that grip, let go that grasp.
Let death remove that falling mask.
Then it came; like silk from a womb of thorns,
Maya collapsed and frayed at its seams.
A dressing of velvet for an illusory wound,
Too long nurtured by a cages fumes.
The stars had been slain from the sky,
And all that once shone was proven a lie.
Yet light still burned like flame in my eye;
:A real light - A black light:
So terrible and beautiful, I began to fly
I realised then that I had to die.
Embracing and facing limitless eternity,
A blissful vision was granted and enlightened me.
The centre of all and middle of none,
Above and below a lightless sun.
Nameless, Nothing and Nowhere.
Weightless, Timeless and Boundless,
Painless, Trouble-less and Fathomless.
Blissful, true and at one with khaos.
A blissful shadow and depthless void,
The ego was smashed and was null and void.
Nigredo, my black heart and open eye,
Embrace the space you have brought me to.
Yet wholeness is the aim of totality,
And the ego grabbed to join with the self.
Ascending through Albedo and Citrinitus,
I rose to Rubedo as once again I bore my wounds.
Yet losis is not the end, but beginning,
And nigredo sits in blissful conclusion.
As the caduceus of Azoth,
The great work begins.
That one great death.
That one great descent.

JR/O: Composition, words, voices, drums, percussion and piano
Devoid of ego or self indulgence, but filled with endless honesty, where aspects of self both die and birth upon the path
toward spiritual oneness and truth. A solely devotional expression that gives voice to the silent, formless void, in shapes that are formed through experience, intellect and the awakening of the ‘inner eye’; the sovereign cadence of which we seek via the triangle/monad....more
