THANATEROS



THANATEROS is a composite word made up of the names of the ancient Greek God of love, Eros; and the ancient Greek God of Death, Thanatos. The Mutation Parlour CD 'Thanateros' spins between these two polarities, both in musical style and in lyrical content, recognizing the infinite cycles of life, death and rebirth.


THANATEROS is also in the name of the international Chaos Magick group begun by Peter Carroll, the IOT or Illuminati of Thanateros. In his classic books 'Liber Null and Psychonaut' (Samuel Weiser) and 'Liber Kaos' (Samuel Weiser), Carroll prescribes magical theories and practises revolving around sex and death, drawing from the vast resources of magical history, especially the works of Austin Osman Spare, the 'grandfrater of chaos magick', mutating them together with his own ideas.


My own (affiliated) magical (dis/)order, the OoC or Order of Chaos, is a less structured organization/disorganization with many synchronous (and many vastly different) ideas and methods to the IOT. Carrol's approach to chaos magick is largely scientific and philosophical. My approach/reaction to the same basic concepts is more of a poetic/artistic one.


Thus the CD draws upon many of the principles of chaos magick blended and mutated together with my own unique madness and infinite other resources and influences. Lyrics (on the following pages) and music alike are a multicultural and multisubcultural blend of tradition and innovation.

Eros and Thanatos


Words, music and picture (c)02 Orryelle



Eros and Thanatos
Female vocals: (Love and Death)
Eros and Thanatos (Love and Death)
Eros and Thanatos (Love and Death)
Opposite yet identical, polar twins,
Around the psyche's axis they spin
Eros and Thanatos (Love and Death)]

Thanatos beckons you into the darkness
Offers you respite from life's starkness
Offers you rest from strife...

While Eros pulls you back to the light
Says, 'Live life, love life,
Life is love and love is life'

CHORUS

Thanatos beckons you into the void,
Says, 'Death is something you cannot avoid'...

While Eros says, 'Seek immortality
Through progeny,
Love to live again,
Live on in your children'....

And yet to do so you must face the little death
Orgasmic void of halted breath...

Unless of course you don't ejaculate
And the conception is immaculate...

CODA:

Eros and Thanatos
Eros and Thanatos
Eros and Thanatos
>>From the darkness of the womb...

To the darkness of the tomb...
Eros and Thanatos loom...

We will wait
Til you take

On the altar
Then it's time
To alter you...
Undergo a transformation or two...
Undergo a transformation or three...

Now it's time

Then it's time
To alter me...

Undergo a transformation or two
Undergo a transformation or three

Now it is time... to... change
Into something new and quite deranged

Now it's time to mutate

Black ink bleed into your skin
Marking you with your kin

Pictures and patches,
Your skin is an atlas
Of your life so far

Palm-reading, body-reading,
Tattoo tarot tantra
Scar-reading, story-bleeding,
Epidermic mantra

Magic mandala, into Shamballa,
Into the centre of the medicine wheel
Cranial cortex, mental vortex,
What do you perceive as real?

Body maps, body maps,
Wrinkles, tattoos and scars
Pictures and patches,
Your skin is an atlas
Of your life so far...

Black ink bleed into your skin,
Bringing out the lines within,

NOW it is time to mutate
NOW is the time that you take
Your position on the altar
Now it's time
to alter you...

Now it is time... to... change
Into something new and quite deRANGED...

SANCTUS LUPUS



Words (c)97 Orryelle
Picture (ink and blood)(c)97 Zain





Sanctus lupus, holy wolf
Sanctus lupus, holy wolf
Sanctus lupus, holy wolf
Sanctus lupus, holy wolf

Instinct divine, shut off your mind
Instinct divine, shut off your mind
Instinct divine?
But instinct is blind
Well instinct is blind,
But reason is deaf!

Sanctus lupus, holy wolf
Sanctus Lupus, holy wolf

The physical surge
Of a primal urge
Is a mental dirge
And a spiritual purge

Pray for the hunt
Hunt for the prey
Preying is praying,
Carnally divine

Sanctus lupus, holy wolf
Sanctus lupus, holy wolf
Sanctus lupus, hoooooooooooooooooooowwwww-ly
...WOLF

Sanctus Loop us
Sanctus Loop us

Sanctus Loop us... ... ...
