Mare Cognitum - Announces Split Album With Spectral Lore


Atmospheric black metal aficionados, Spectral Lore's sole member Ayloss and Jacob Buczarski from Mare Cognitum, join forces once again after their 2013's split EP Sol, for another mystical trip through the stars. Wanderers: Astrology Of The Nine will be co-released by Entropic Recordings and I, Voidhanger Records on March 13th.

Monumental and daring in its length and scope, Wanderers: Astrology Of The Nine is a thematic journey through our solar system, illustrating and anthropomorphizing it into mythology which parallels our own humanity with the science of these mysterious formations.

"Inspired by Gustav Holst's Planets suite, we continue the exploration we began many years ago with Sol," explain the artists; "we traverse outwards from the sun to each planet, weaving fables through a synthesis of their distinct physical features and a mythical personhood representing these features."

Graced with a wondrous cover painting by the inimitable Elijah Tamu, Wanderers: Astrology Of The Nine is nothing but a never ending quest for mankind's cosmic origins, a celestial and philosophical observation on the notes of Mare Cognitum and Spectral Lore's music, perfectly in the balance between progressive yet furious black metal, and moments of ecstatic, melodic beauty.

"While we wish to capture the awe of the raw, natural beauty of our cosmic surroundings, we have also created our own cosmically inspired lore with each planet as our muse," say Ayloss and Buczarski; "therefore, each track is a narrative which represents our admiration for each cosmic entity: the psychic manifestations that were conjured through our own wonder of the majestic planetary system we call home."

I'd call this more of a split than a collaboration personally, as only the last 2 tracks are collab tracks. But it's nonetheless always great to get new material from these guys regardless, so I'm pretty excited for this.

Also great to see that Elijah Tamu has been getting around to adorning more album covers with his magnificent art lately. Dude is a serious genius.

You're right, I changed the title.

In your face other planets, Pluto is getting two tracks (and the only collab ones) and it's not even a planet.
