After the underground success of “Phobos Monolith” (I, Voidhanger Records 2014), MARE COGNITUM embark on a time travel through black holes and dead galaxies to bring their second full-length work, 2012’s “An Extraconscious Lucidity” back to a new life. Originally available only as digital and limited CD-r, the album has been fully remastered to enhance his cosmic black metal aura, and has been wrapped up in an intriguing art design that underlines its nature as a true alien artifact.
“An Extraconscious Lucidity is a view into a decrepit corner of the cosmos, where universes are conceived as quickly as they are destroyed,” explains MARE COGNITUM’s sole member Jacob Buczarski.
“In this cosmic womb we find sorrowful galaxies, self-aware and conscious. As this cosmic energy swirls and suffers, it is purified, and The Extraconscious Lucidity of the universe is wrought – an ultra-luminous presence of cosmic mind which connects all matter and surpasses all awareness that has come before it. This hollow actualization, in all its grandeur, can still do nothing to appease its own realization that it is, in itself, nothing. It is a journey into the ultimate void.”
