LouderThanWar published a news item about a new release by the band SEODAH, named after a Crowley poem. The new story reads in part:
“The Rose And The Cross is the second full album from Sound Effects Of Death And Horror (SEODAH). It follows 2019’s experimental debut album, Stone Tape, and ambient EP, Jet 9:24, The Rose And The Cross features 6 longform, ambient drones. The tracks are both light and dark, dissonant and melodic in equal nature to create different moods for the listener.
“The compositions were constructed using heavily processed samples of existing SEODAH songs and vocal excerpts, along with heavily processed, live analogue synths and e-bow guitar. t was mixed using techniques to reflect the binaural listening process, to give the sensation of being in the room with the performer.
“The title of the album comes from the poem of the same name by Aleister Crowley, the English Occultist, first published in 1917. All compositions are based on the theme of ‘The Ritual of the Rose Cross,’ which was designed for spiritual protection and as preparation for meditation.”
