Black Shape Of Light

He who is the Beast Man, step forward
Let us see you in full glory, revile the swine that holds you
As you once were, you will forever be
May all heinous deeds that has fallen upon your shoulders be lifted off you

You are every man, let us see you free and light
As we steer clear of your path, let us give you strength
Strength to rip us open, crush our bones, consume our flesh

Nothing is worthy of trial and error, no one shall compete to reach the end before you
Step in the footstep of few, the Beast Man seeks vengeance and rightfully so
Let us love to hate you, as you make us understand that all is nothing, nothing at all

Black shape of light
As the beginning of time reaches out
The pestered demon awakes amongst roots and rotting matter
Alone he is the possession of life draped in heavy cloak of anger and hope
A chord-less tune of rattling branches in the wind of the dark hills
Stone crushed to gravel under his sore feet
To see the shadows
Heavy laden with millennia of patience and understanding
Deeper breathing takes him higher
Leave no trace
The short reach for a lifetime of willing
Dead mass comes to life
Roots reaching for bedrock

Irregular patterns become invisible, a straight line in the forest means death. 
Cold and untamed is the air that flows in and out of the living. 
Why struggle to beat the Alpha, life a mere transition from womb to maggot. 
Yet the senses scream of fear of the oblivious end, escape the only way forward. 
Fangs rip through hide and tissue, feeding life and purpose. 

Loud Silence, failure is waiting around the next bend
The silence of countless lifetimes seek to deafening you
Pounding you down with a heavy beat, the beat of defense
Take your chance and hide, become the environment
Let no one catch a glimpse of you in this state
The hammer shall fall with full force, nothing is everything for you now
To lose is to succeed, success is on the futile path
The winding path of deafening silence

Stand tall

The black trunk of the Lord gives life to the darkest of shades underneath
No seedling can find it’s rightful place under the King
Basking with a clear consience as the ever whispering wind flows with an answer to all and every riddle                                                 
Roots gripping deep and firm
                              Tendons of steel penetrating
                                                     The Master of the sky will fall the hardest

Amongst friends you are the trusted one your sharp knowledge is complete Amongst the clueless you dwell not nor with he who has doubt looking over his shoulder Worthy companion of few With life I honor you 

Because amongst friends you are the trusted one

Beware the beast man, for he is the devil's pawn 
Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport, or lust or greed
Yes, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land
Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours

Shun him

Drive him back into his jungle lair, For he is the harbinger of death

Cosmo Hammer

Shot a gig with Legion Of Andromeda (Check links and stuff in a post below). I know the faceless approach and "lack-of-humanity" fits this guys personalities and music so I wanted a more progressive style that would go with the mood of this gig. Turned out ok regarding the little mirrorless I used. Always uplifting to shoot stuff that moves you and the story behind this band and what they are achieving is for me a great thing. 

These turned out too clean, still liked them.

The Curse

Lack of inspiration for a long time now, no real will to write, read or do photography. Lingering in limbo-land just waiting to catch up with time has taken it's toll, paying my dues right now. The way to catch up and get on is fading, though, new shit will hit the fan in a not too distant future. Will this be the ticket this time? I really believe it will, if there is a will there is a way.
