Aurum Nostrum Non Est Aurum Vulgi

kkoagulaa are excited to announce the signing of a deal with Aural Music. kkoagulaa, the multimedia, multidimensional project formed by ccernn after his departure from Manes, have wrapped up production on their debut full length. The album, titled Aurum Nostrum Non Est Aurum Vulgi, marks a new era of an exponential growth of creativity for the artists involved.

The inception of kkoagulaa continues and furthers the pushing of boundaries that characterized the black metal/avant-garde careers of its core members, kkoagulaa’s art is a kaleidoscopic vortex of dark and light, brilliant, psychedelic colour contrasting haunting, evocative monochrome. Much discussion and speculation surrounds the kkoagulaa podcasts, ebooks and art. The period of conception and gearing up yielded hours of material, but that material were but the rough sketches, the single and debut album comprising the first masterworks of kkoagulaa.

Aurum Nostrum Non Est Aurum Vulgi is set to be released in late February 2010 and will be preceded by a digital only EP in late january 2010.

kkoagulaa aartattakk – As We Prepare the Album Design

The aartt process throws off many strange phenomena. For me it does, at least. Heres a butterfly, shining with Aurum Nostrum...

kkoagulaa – podkkast – Aurum Nostrum I

Welcome to the first transmission of the kkoagulaa podkkast, starting from the point of one awakening from a dream, we bring you on a journey the simultaneously takes us inward and outside ourselves.

Q. When the Philosophers speak of gold and silver, from which they extract their matter, are we to suppose that they refer to the vulgar gold and silver?

A. By no means; vulgar silver and gold are dead, while those of the Philosophers are full of life.

After all notions have been dissected

And all expressions have been deconstructed

As world views have been exploded

And connections to others have been dissolved

Comes another swing of the pendulum

Again changes the sum and substance

A time for renewal, for creation, cor consolidation

From solve to coagula

That which was expanded contracts

Cryptic works become clear

Obscured layers of meaning show themselves in all their beautiful simplicity

The imperfect, diseased, corruptible and ephemeral becomes perfect, healthy, incorruptible and everlasting

The map ceases to prevent us from exploring the territory

ah, we have achieved kkoagulaa

Our first transmission eases us into an opening of the third eye:
