The new Lamia Vox album, named "Alles ist Ufer. Ewig ruft das Meer (Everything is shore. The sea calls forever)" after the Gesänge poem by Gottfried Benn, bears a spiritual message, a counterblast, an antagonism to the rationality and greedy materialism of the post-theist and nihilistic age.
Inspired by the Early Modern poetry, Hermetic ideas, Fin-de-siècle Symbolism and Naturphilosophie, this album celebrates another world, one of the higher dimensions, beyond the human sphere, a world of intoxicated and ecstatic alchemy of poetic language and ideas. The upward movement, a breakthrough from the bonds of materia straight to the source of life and eternity.
Dionysian liberating lawlessness opposes the sterile rationalism. The creativity, divine madness, metanoia as a form of ultimate salvation.
Poetry is always a sailing: it is the secret recipe, the process and the laboratory of the Magnum Opus, a divine gift of deliberated madness.
