Xenomancer (Reel 1): Choronzon | Digital EP | Panicmachine Records

Choronzon cover

The Choronzon EP, released on Panicmachine Records, is the first part of my Xenomancer trilogy – the second and third EPs, entitled Oberon and Metatron, will follow on Panicmachine in due course.

“The name of the Dweller in the Abyss is Choronzon, but he is not really an individual. The Abyss is empty of being; it is filled with all possible forms, each equally inane, each therefore evil in the only true sense of the word – that is, meaningless but malignant, in so far as it craves to become real. These forms swirl senselessly into haphazard heaps like dust devils, and each such chance aggregation asserts itself to be an individual and shrieks, ‘I am I!’ though aware all the time that its elements have no true bond; so that the slightest disturbance dissipates the delusion just as a horseman, meeting a dust devil, brings it in showers of sand to the earth.”
The Confessions of Aleister Crowley, chapter 66

“I must speak, speak, speak, millions of mad voices in my brain.”
– Choronzon, in the 10th Aethyr of Crowley’s The Vision and the Voice

“Effectively atmospheric and focused despite the indefinite nature of some of its sounds, Choronzon gives its greatest rewards to listeners who can give it near-meditative levels of attention. A tempting start to the trilogy, and a strong demonstration of TJB Morrison's singular talents.”
