Drowning the Light - 'Varcolaci Rising' CD
New 2017 album by the Australian vampire, eight hymns of dark, melancholic and Vampyric Black Metal that soars on nightwing to the darkest of realms. Drink in the night air, bask in the lunar rays, and revel in the coming darkness. Focusing on lycanthropy and vampirism, and in particular the Varcolaci, a recurring creature which has had hymns sung in its name since the very first Drowning the Light album ("Drowned").
The Varcolaci are shape shifting vampyres associated with the astral plane, and able to assume many forms. In folklore the Varcolaci was believed to be responsible for eclipses or the blood moon, drinking the blood and essence of the sun and moon, often described as small wolf-like dragons, winged phantoms, dogs (2 in number), or creatures with many mouths or tendrils that suck like an octopuses tentacles.
The cosmic vampyre Varcolaci is said to be a result of a woman spinning thread in the dark or under moonlight, as this thread becomes a bridge for the Varcolaci to wander through the portals of the cosmos, as long as the thread does not break the Varcolaci has power, and can attack the heavenly bodies, drinking from the moon. In modern vampyric magick, the Varcolaci assume astral form to gain the essence and energy from sleeping victims.
