We are proud to present the debut cassette from Mysteres du Serpent, the new sounds of recent NYC-to-NOLA transplant (and Telecult High Priest and Co-pilot of the Cosmos) Witchbeam Jones. Pairing with members of the Blood & Ouroboros Peristyle, Witchbeam strips this offering down to its bare essences, weaving deep organic textures into the poly-rhythmic sways of an authentic Voodoo drum circle. The lines where the buzz of the swamps leave off and where their interlaced electronic counterparts pick up blur as they interplay with open air textures and rhythms. The result is so entrancing in its captivity and so organically arranged that one can't help but find themselves suddenly transported bayou-side, lost in New Orleans thicket.
The release is dedicated to Kenneth Grant and all others that walk with the Cults of the Shadow.
"The recording quality gives the entire cassette the feeling of being a peculiar artifact from an unnamed era... Witchbeam has amassed nine lives worth of wisdom on Crowley, Voodoo, marginal goth/industrial/power electronics, psychedelia, and underground noise. If they gave out terminal degrees in this stuff, this guy would be tenured faculty." - Foxy Digitalis
