Sanguine Eagle is one of the most cutting edge black metal bands to come out of Brooklyn. This group, and the rest of the House of First Light collective, are doing incredibly important things for extreme music.
Favorite track: The First Storm.
Sanguine Eagle is devotional music, exalting an unfolding magickal current that its members refer to as storm mysticism. The practitioner becomes a personification of the storm itself as he experiences the long and painful process of becoming severed from the dream or banal realities. Embodying its rapturous ability to devastate as well as bring remarkable resurgences of life, the storm is a perfect exemplification of the mercurial power that can be harnessed from knowledge of nature’s mysteries, wielded of course by one who knows, wills, dares and keeps silent. Knowledge of this frightening totality is so volatile it presents as much risk and danger as it does progress. While led through these vestigial mysteries, existence will persist as a subservient entity and all of perception becomes his temple. As the spirit goes through this harrowing castigation, one finally gazes upon the fruits of strength contained at the zenith-heart of the storm.
