1.
Bodies alignes in syzygy The robed have gathered wordlessly Amalthean altar, pristine white this day, his death will reversed by... Jovian eye of crimson Vigilant watches on Obscure cosmic ritual Ne'er born blood to be shed... Preparing sacred neverborn Body steeped in the finest oils Fetal skin by athame then pierced Scarlet marks our un-god's birthplace... Black candles lit... Invoking he for whom we shall bow Stillborn blood spilt... Calling on the alabaster void From ichor rise...

Born from the womb of nothingness Daughter of none, mother of all Slowly expanding, spiraling Spewing from her guts, dust of life Writhing in pain Life slips away Vomiting life Swarm genesis Spawned of her essence The brood has come forth Nebula of nebulae All things from you born On frequencies unheard Her cries of agony Throughout the universe Dying screams in torment Over aeons, labor claims her life...

about

CALIGARI RECORDS is proud to present PERIHELION GNOSIS' striking debut demo, Syzygial Summoning, on cassette tape format.

Perihelion Gnosis is the work of Canadian musician Caleb Simard. Although one could say the band is entirely Simard's vision since he writes all the music and plays every instrument, uniquely, he has help from a close friend to flesh out the totality of Perihelion Gnosis: lyrics, concepts, themes, and even artwork and logo were done by said friend, who Simard considers "in the band" even if he doesn't play or write any actual music.

As for the music itself, Perihelion Gnosis exists on the fringes of the weirdest, wildest death metal. Going from sludge to skronk, backwards riffing to black-hole propulsion, zero-BPM doom to atonal death, Syzygial Summoning sounds very much like its namesake, all wrapped in richly shuddering tones exceptionally advanced for a first recording. Imagine a malformed spawn of Disembowelment and Cianide, informed by demo-era Demilich, and you're getting nearer to Perihelion Gnosis...but not quite exactly there.

As could be expected from such a description, Perihelion Gnosis' lyrics - again, written by mainman Simard's close friend - go great lengths to match content with form. By and large, the lyrics are inspired by cosmic horror, the fear of the unknown and unknowable, the infinite vastness of space and how very insignificant the human existence is seen at a larger scale. All lyrics are set in the same universe that's constantly being built upon in new songs, with returning characters and storylines. A concept EP is planned that will feature concepts and characters introduced on Syzygial Summoning and upcoming releases.

Want to know what a "Syzygial Summoning of His Pale-Skinned Majesty (Sacrifice of the Neverborn)" or "Nebular Hypothesis (The All-Mother's Cyclical Un-Birth; Genesis of the Swarm)"? Then dive in (and try to survive) Perihelion Gnosis' debut demo!
