4-panel digipack. 8-page full color booklet with lyrics.
Far from being a typical split album, Spectral Lore and Mare Cognitum’s “SOL” is a collaboration on many levels, starting from the conceptual and moving on to the musical. Themes and riffs have been cross-referenced and transfigured, structures have been put in proportion, lyrics have been written in parallel.
Conceptually, “SOL” is an attempt at a kind of cosmological philosophy; searching the vast, cold expanses of the universes for traces of meaning and purpose. What it is out there that is fundamental, absolute and shared? What can we learn about ourselves by looking outward, to the void and the inanimate? Spectral Lore and Mare Cognitum may have an answer for you.
