Welcome to The Devil & The Universe

„Kiss The Goat!“

Two cards selected from the 78-piece tarot card-set as utilised by the most famous occultist of the 20th century Aleister Crowley, were behind the first step. ”The Devil” and “The Universe” were the cards pulled that would prophesize a name for a musical-magical-transcendental composition and transformation project: THE DEVIL & THE UNIVERSE.

Two musician friends, one goal–Ashley Dayour („Whispers in the Shadow“) , David Pfister („Black Manna“) and Stefan Elsbacher set out to create music from magical systems. They set out to give up their musical creativity and allow the legitimacy of magic and religious mechanisms form musical rules.The process and its system dictated and created not just phonetic anarchy but also examples of sound perfection.
