Wings of an Angel

“Our Forgotten Infinity And The Absolute Zero”

Where does this life lead, is a question oft heard and explored by spiritually-inclined individuals, religious groups, old and new age cults, occult organizations and so forth. But, nobody, in the whole course of humanity’s conscious existence on this earth, has been able to bring forth a single-handed evidence. I have lived a substantial amount of years on this earth, to proclaim wholeheartedly that I have gotten tired of it all – that is listening to yet another “i-know-it-all” who will try convince me of his group’s eternal truths. If it was only a personal struggle – I’d call it quits since I am very stubborn and rigidly unconscionable, I quickly and effectively send these people and their groups straight to hell. But, what about the children, innocent children of pure heart and spirit, who are brainwashed into this whole nonsense from day one of their existence?
Every day I see and hear this happening, children brought up into the dark ways of archaic belief systems which encourage NOT freethinking and high-spirited exploration of the world around – but inject the seeds of their hardcore fundamentalist doctrines unto the soft minds of the newly born.
I feel as if with every technological advance, with every generational leap, we move backwards because on one hand there is a lot of progress, but the human psyche cannot adequately handle it all, and thus, people go backwards in masses, lock themselves up in their old ways and rigorous traditions. We are giving up on the potential of our conscious infinity, to the point where it has become forgotten to most people.
Also, on the other hand, there are tons and masses of people who irresponsibly explore the vast potential of the mind by using various psycho-altering substances, from ayahuasca to magic mushrooms. This sounds romantic, but there are 3 critical problems with this, I will try to address these here, and hope that perhaps i’ll shed light on this important topic for the benefit of those whom it may be of help:
a. most chemical substances found out there on the streets are not synthesized at some clinical lab by authorized and qualified scientists, they have no leaflets and may contain the devil knows what… There’s no inspection on these pills and they come as atypical on the black market, often not even stored correctly.
b. all psychedelic drugs are highly powerful substances because they fundamentally (and sometimes even irreversibly) alter the way our brain functions, thus they are very unexpected and are not tailor-made. even those of us who claim to know themselves very well – can never know what exactly to expect. anybody who says differently – is either a fool or a dangerously disillusioned individual.
If it’s so-called “NATURAL” – doesn’t mean we are to use it. The word Natural is not some kind of approval from “MOTHER/FATHER NATURE” to go wild like there’s no tomorrow. There are numerous ways to nurture and nourish one’s mind and spirit via less potentially hazardous methods.
c. last but perhaps for many it should be the first – is the question: why experiment with these substances in the first place? For what purpose? What do you miss in this conscious life that you choose to either escape or put yourself in potential danger?
I know you may say that life is generally dangerous and unexpected and even crossing a street or driving a car is a fatal hazard. This is a typical new-age answer. But it doesn’t address the fundamental question of why consciously put yourself and your psyche, which we know little about and usually have little control of, at a concrete and indubitable danger?
Also, adventurous men (and even more so) women many times tend to fall into the hands of charismatic and highly intelligent psychopaths who promote the use of these substances in order to “connect to their higher self”. These are lies made to quiet and turn off critical thinking… I would recommend watching such films as Hideous Kinky (1998) & Icaros (2014) to get an idea of what i’m referring to. Just please beware and guard yourself and your open-mindedness by turning down such temptations and settling on listening to people who are perhaps less colorful outwardly, but have a sense of mental and intellectual balance and stability, as well as bona fide humility and life experience borne from the deep roots of understanding how fragile this precious life and world are.
I don’t want to sound like an old ranting geezer, so I better stop for now and leave you pondering to the sounds of this new album.

Wings of an Angel – Birthday

[Self Release ]

Wings of an Angel

“Birthday”

FOREVER DRONE

A drone that seems to go on forever,
echoing through the void,
never modulating in it’s pitch,
never seeming to change in it’s pace.

Where did this droning sound come from,
this seemingly eternal sound that echoes through the void?
I cannot seem to avoid it’s monotone melody,
as it makes it’s way into my mind.

I cannot comprehend where it came from,
this musicality of never undulating pitch,
but alas,
there is something hypnotic about it,
and I find that now my reaches out for it,
this tone of hypnotic monotony,
a sound that I formerly pushed out of my reach.

Wings of an Angel – Cult Of Personality

[Self Release ]

Wings of an Angel

“Cult Of Personality”

“Cult of Personality by Wings of an Angel is a one-piece ambient/drone album of almost one hour playtime. The track is quenched with majestic, almost monumental sound cascades, taking the listener higher and higher into realms of pure sonic light and glory. Sounds too elevated? Not at all! The whole piece allows you to forget your ego and your daily struggle without plagiarizing the shallow meditation CDs from the home shopping channel.
(darage-bang.com/wings-of-an-angel-cult-of-personality/ambient_drone_experimental_chillout_music_reports/)
———————–
“What a lovely hour of music this is! This is at the pretty, inspirational, light ambient end of things, which I love just as much as dark ambient. In fact, the towering, misty, angelic synths of this piece recall the classic days of early ambient, artists like Iasos as well as Steve Roach’s nineties soundscapes like Darkest Before Dawn and Slow Heat, and also the current work of artists like Phillip Wilkerson. That is very high praise, believe me. I enjoy this to bits and will be investigating this artist’s work further”.

Wings of an Angel – Rest In Peace (A Soundtrack For Irreversible Relaxation)

Self-Release

Wings of an Angel

“Rest In Peace (A Soundtrack For Irreversible Relaxation)”

Being the hyperly compassionate bloke that I am, I am hereby proud to present my April Fool’s offering: The Ultimate Relaxation CD – “Rest In Peace”! That’s right boys and girls! From now on, You will never need another relaxation CD for your zoning-out/tripping-out exercises :)
This particular LP was borne from the ether by yours truly as an exercise in alternative reality deconstruction. It seems to me that in today’s rather watered-down social environment, everybody’s striving towards some inner peace and balanced harmony, which at certain doses is of course a fine goal, but an exceeded dosage of this state of mind leads in my experience to mental stagnation. We evolve as we struggle, at least that’s what I’ve learned from my life’s journey.
Being an intense person from birth, I’ve known very little of this infamous “relaxed” state of mind, which at times can be a tad overwhelming from foreign eyes’ foresight, but for me it is a wonderfully vivid blessing. I quite dislike simplicity as a rule of thumb, and relaxation in my eyes is mostly a one-dimensional experience. And not experiential however I turn it around. It lacks the experimental edge that sleep has, for instance. Thus, I never experience sleep as a relaxation-driven existential mode. It is ‘something else’, literally. The more people talk about how we, as species, supposedly understand what sleep is – the more I laugh out loud. Nobody understands the profoundly unfathomed meta-realities of what sleep is and what it is not. It is in my perception deeper and much more fathomless than any artificially induced (so-called without a justification in my eyes) psychedelic state of mind (or rather – The Psychedelically Clichéd).
Meditation too, in my wildest opinion, aside from being a pretty useful therapeutic tool for certain individuals and groups, is not the aid I’d happily suggest for the ever-curious artist and keen explorer of the world. The whole idea, in my perception, is to OPEN UP perception and expand the senses (while being in control of the experience in the purely non-psychedelic sense) – not to minimize these to minimum and freeze like a perplexed virgin lama who had dreamed an erotic dream of a Himalayan mermaid while struggling with high maintenance Samadhi.
I certainly do wish that this semi-improvised high-voltage voyage to the ultimately irreversible relaxation realm will be an unforgettable one for each and every one of you – individually and in the most mentally and emotionally intimate way possible.
On we move to an individual infinite space of multidimensional unconscious relaxation!

Helicalin & lost-radio – Everyting So Stoned, Everything Is Bad

[SCL163]

Helicalin & lost-radio

“Everyting So Stoned, Everything Is Bad”

Музыка огромного мегаполиса, накрывшейся вечным одеялом ночи.
Его многолюдных улиц, где всегда теряются одинокие души и серых домов, где люди превращаются в тех, кто сидит внутри них.

adcBicycle – Malignant Cove

[SCL162]

adcBicycle

“Malignant Cove”

Malignant Cove is adcBicycle’s 3rd album. All tracks are about a rocky ocean cove in Nova Scotia, Canada. The album was constructed to be catchy, dark, background music. The music engages the listener with gritty analog sounds, loosely played instruments and driving beats, yet at the same time sits peacefully in the background with distant vocals, slow building drama and a consistent dark pop mood.

Wings of an Angel – Surreal Reductionism

Self-Release

Wings of an Angel

“Surreal Reductionism”

I had then walked and walked forward on, with abrupt and unhesitating steps, leaving behind and beneath me a landscape of emotional chaos and languishing turmoil… I was alone again; an indisputable shadow piercing through the dense light. The clouds had no sign of giving up, force-feeding me with rain and occasional doses of excessive oxidation. I hardly breathed; at times I almost forgot my own name and place of origin… I moved through the darkening terrain, stepping to and fro unrecognizable crowds of human-like robots dressed in traditional attire, constantly reincarnating monsters and transparent biblical creatures. I passed a lovelorn tomb and an empty forest without a birthmark. I kept on walking even though by then I didn’t know whether i’m dead or alive… I took some photographs but had nowhere to develop them. So I ate them to keep me safe from starvation. I saw a crippled young girl offering poisonous candies to funnily dressed women, and strangely beautiful very old men offering their bygone youth to unborn babies. I could hear the distant noises of war but also the comforting buzz of nature’s cutting edge freedom. I walked forward like a zombie with closed eyes, led not by my eyesight but by my rusty inner compass… Where to? I wish I’d known. Or… Do I, actually? Perhaps it’s better not to know anything…
We know not where our separate paths lead us, none of us know anything, as a matter of fact. We play an occasional role here and there; yet everything we are is a theatrical mirage; each one of us being a minor player in this surreal shadow theater. You may believe in whatever you want or whoever you want; it doesn’t matter to me. You may lead your life according to society’s compass or the fathomed rules of your psyche… You may be and/or choose to be a clown or a god… I will still pass through you as if you were a random ghostly projection of my perpetually dreaming consciousness…
