Album cover for the band Burial Invocation. Title: Phantasmagoric Transcendence
(The following text is what the band describes for some of the album tracks)

About the tracks:

"Revival" is mostly about the necessity of the human spirit to appreciate the beauty & mystery of life, nature and art instead of being submerged in mass consumption & addictions.

"Abiogenesis" is about the appereance of the first forms of life on earth and their bizarre nature. That book "Art Forms of Nature" by Ernst Haeckel amazes me and was an inspiration for this song. I want to include some of those drawings inside the booklet, in the background of the lyrics.

"Visions of the Hereafter" is about the belief in afterlife, and that it is an easy way of relief for many people. In reality the afterlife is a mystery, and noone can know or claim to know completely what will happen. This title is inspired by the polyptych of Hieronymus Bosch.

"Phantasmagoric Transcendence" is about psychedelic experience, how it pushes one's perception beyond regular human boundaries, how it can reveal the geometric beauty of nature to one's eyes and enhance the experience of sound to horrifying levels.

"Tenebrous Horizons" will be an outro song, inspired the majestic view of the Mediterranean Sea at night.
