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.
Three musician friends, one goal, Ashley Dayour („Whispers in the Shadow“) , David Pfister („Die Buben im Pelz“) and Stefan Elsbacher set out to create an eclectic blend of styles, sounds and atmospheres. Tribal drums meet 80’s electronica, industrial beats merge with middle eastern percussions, soundtrack like atmospheres conjure up dreams of a future that never was.
A dance ritual for a future past. An exercise in trance for a past yet to come.
Thus far they released 6 albums and numerous Eps and singles.
The new album GOATopia is released in January 2022 on Aufnahme + Wiedergabe and Solar Lodge Records.
