01. Om Ah Hum (8:30)
01. Om Ah Hum (8:30)
The overture of the album. Introduction of the grand guitars. Drums stumbling around, in search of a rhythm, an affiliation, a destiny, all under the watchful eyes of the gods from the mountain. The mantra Om Ah Hum, repeated three times, is commonly used at the end of a meditation. Om is the primal vibration out of which all things came forth. Ah is the symbol of the primal state of the spirit. Hum is the descent from universality (Om) into the human heart.
02. Crepuscular Rays (8:37)
Rain. Thunder. Guitar swells. The harbinger of things to come. A small village near the sea. Impressive sails on the horizon. Men with polished swords. The villagers know they don’t stand a chance. But they know who will wind up in hell. After the slaughter, through the rays in the sky, the souls of the villagers reach the sparkling beauty of the entrance of the heavens that await them.
03. Black Heaven (6:31)
Through the crepuscular rays in the sky, also known as Jacob’s ladder, one reaches the heavens. One of them is Black Heaven. And as we know, black is beautiful. But it takes a winter and a storm before the entrance opens up.
04. Enoch (10:41)
‘Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him’. The book of Enoch is an ancient Jewish religious work. Enoch learned about the stars and the planets when visiting heaven under the guidance of the archangel Uriel. In a world of evil and impurity brought to humanity by the fallen angels, before the biblical flood, Enoch stayed righteous. And so God took him.
