W.A.I.L. - Wisdom Through Agony Into Illumination And Lunacy vol. II 2LP
Eclectic Doom/Black Metal.
The album's main idea builds on a seeming dualism, on a representation of how the concept of W.A.I.L. includes a whole scale of both negative and positive aspects. Instead of making a strict distinction between the two - for example stating that good and evil are independent and stand-alone entities - we try to show how everything is interconnected. The dualistic illusiveness springs to life from our mind's attempt to make sense of All; in other words, a lot depends on which side of the coin we're looking at, or which aspect of our name we're representing at a given time. Things that appear contradictory and entirely different are, in the end, just the flip sides of the same coin, and therefore parts of a big oneness, which reveals itself through all seeming disparities.
This oneness, in other words the concept of W.A.I.L, only manifests itself, and we then qualitatively evaluate this radiance of energies from our own viewpoints. The album's concept celebrates both the negative and positive aspects - and everything between them in their purest archetypal forms, as they haven't been processed through the ego filter which man starts to build from his birth. In other words, the album's concept studies the notion of oneness, the connections of polarities in a huge labyrinth, and aspires to dive under the surface of these so-called opposites where a thicker depth opens. We pursue a wider understanding of the heart-core, of the purest primary condition, that pumps beyond the deep ocean and also, paradoxically, in its midst.
