“… and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel. They move through the firmament which is the colour of a ‘terrible crystal’, and around a throne like sapphire, on which sits Metatron, suffused in the radiance of the rainbow.” – Peter Lamborn Wilson, Angels (1980)/Ezekiel’s Vision.

VeryRecords Announces Alka’s The Colour of Terrible Crystal Album

Thrilled to be working with an absolute legend of an electronic music producer – Vince Clarke – on alka’s 3rd full-length release – Out Friday the 13th this October 2017! From founding Depeche Mode, to Yaz, to Assembly, to Erasure, to his almost countless remix credits… there isn’t much more to say.

The album title was inspired by a quote from Hermetic Library Fellow Peter Lamborn Wilson’s Angel:

“… and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel. They move through the firmament which is the colour of a ‘terrible crystal’, and around a throne like sapphire, on which sits Metatron, suffused in the radiance of the rainbow.”

Antiquity Broke

 

Antiquity Broke
(Michael)

About the metamorphic process of death and an attempt to understand the bridge between the here and now and the afterlife through magick. She starts the fire and opens her book whose very pages are culled and reborn from the Tree of Life.

Produced and programmed by bryan.alka, lyrics and vocal elements by Todd Steponick.

 

Alka translates frequencies into moods. A blending (and bending) of electronic styles, his output has been variously described over the years as IDM, Ambient, Occultronica, and Witch-Glitch. Alka’s production process is akin to an alchemical experiment, directly and indirectly incorporating esoteric practices adapted for musical creation. The result is simultaneously vast enough for wide open spaces and/or condensed urban settings. It is the place where lucidity and obscurity meet.

Creeps

 

Creeps
(Michael)

The sound of particle accelerators realized and that of the universe folding in on itself. The ‘creep’ is the slow dragging dance of the hereafter.
