Warlock Asylum Part 1: Kiss of The Immortal Album Art

WARLOCK ASYLUM ALBUM ART PART 2: THE THREE PYRAMIDS OF GIZA

Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to The “Kiss Of The Immortal Page.” If this is your first time visiting us here, I would suggest that you start your journey into the musical world of Warlock Asylum by reviewing some of our previous articles listed on the far right.

 

In our last discussion we were able to come to some deeper insights as to the meaning of the eyes on the front cover of the Kiss of The Immortal album art. Today we will review the meaning of the pyramids as they appear on the cover of the album.

 

Although the Kiss of The Immortal album is based highly on the Mesopotamian epic of Ishtar and Dumuzi, Warlock Asylum fans may question the appearance of an Egyptian relic on the front cover. We will take a deeper look into the meaning of the Pyramids of Giza, which may give us some understanding as to their relationship with the rest of the album art

It has been theorized that the three Pyramids of Giza are a reflection of three stars that exist in the constellation of Orion.

 

The three pyramids of Giza are a perfect reproduction of the 3 stars of Orion’s belt:

·      Like the pyramids, the three stars of Orion are not perfectly aligned, the smallest of them is slightly offset to the East.

·      All three are slanted in a Southwesterly direction (Note the exact match in the animation).

·      Their orientation to the Nile recreates Orion’s orientation to the Milky Way.

·      The layout of the pyramids, and their relative sizes were a deliberate design plan, and not the result of three king’s enormous egos as been preached as dogma by the so-called Egyptologists.

 

Interestingly, in a book entitled, Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning, by Richard H. Allen written in 1889, Allen observes the following on page 304::

 

“The derivation of the word has been in doubt, but Brown refers it to the Akkadian Uruanna [Note at end of page 304:This divinity was the later Chaldaeo-Assyrian sun-god Dumuzi, the Son of Life, or Tammuz, widely known in classical times as Adonis. Aries also represented him in the sky], the Light of Heaven, originally applied to the sun, as Uru-ki, the Light of Earth, was to the moon; so that our title may have come into Greek mythology and astronomy from the Euphrates. The Ourion, Ouron, or Urion, of the Hyriean, or Byrsaean, story, the Urion of the original Alfonsine Tables, graphically explained by Minsheu, is in no sense an acceptable title, although Hyginus and Ovid vouched for it, thus showing its currency in their day. Caesius’ derivation from Ora, as if marking the Seasons, seems fanciful.”

We can easily see that the album cover art is still consistent with the Ancient Mesopotamian scheme that we spoke of in our first article, which can be found at this link:

The woman that is sitted above the pyramids is Kendra, love of messiah-el. Ironically, Kendra and Messiah-el met through his mentor Eddie Birchmore. They soon discovered that they had a very similar background, both being raised in the Jehovah’ Witness religion, and were best friends before getting into a romantic relationship. Over the years they started studying Eastern Philosophy and some works of Gurdjeiff. They are also Reiki Masters, or involved in the work of Reiki. I am not sure if anyone is a Master unless they feel they completed the learning process of a particular field, which to me seems endless. Messiah-el and Kendra started dating shortly after some of the first recordings were completed. They also began studying some Sumerian Mythologies. Messiah-el began to see some links between the legend of Inanna and Dumuzi with there own relationship over the years. During this time Steve Berson also began dating the love of his life Megan. It seems that the “love theme” in the Warlock Asylum Epic is more than just fictional, and in some ways have affected the lives of those who are involved in the project.
