Mixed and recorded live to analog tape by Dustin Lehman at Monomyth Studios, summer of MMXIII. This is a rehearsal version of the second track from Murk Rider's upcoming studio full-length.

"As the hero continues his quest through the perilous underworld, he is met by opposition from treacherous beings – reflections of the roots of fear which burrow deep in the well of his own psyche. Beset by gnashing teeth through the cold, dark, wet of the inner black oceans, the sojourner finds deep in the gloom a clarion of hope – the magic sword, as a brilliant star in the void: the promise of the Goddess fulfilled. This, for the hero, is the turning point; armed with the psychic power of the transformed self, initiated upon the dream altars of the underworld, the hero achieves the strength to rise up, questing homeward through the distant stars, and to face the realization: to return, one must surrender to the ultimate sacrifice: utter annihilation upon the nexus of reality. And so the great circle turns onward, ever toward wholeness."

The hero's journey enacted through thunder-sorcery.

Respect to our ancestors, the oaks and cypress of the foggy coastlines. The unnamed ones who speak not our tongue.

The philosophy of recovery through unconditional love.
