Sold into grief, an aching for the seed Old family tree of who you're meant to be Perfect in breed, just branches down from Eve Vestalis creed is chanted by the priest Society will tell you many things Don't you believe in anyone but me How come you're workin'? How come you're workin'? Woman the throne. You've always been a queen. Coronation, your sexuality How come you're workin'? How come you're workin'? How come you're workin'? How come you're workin'? Judge not what bleeds Judge not her knees Judge not between Judge not receive Unity Rite of spring Vesica Pisces Unity Everything Complete

Tonight take your clothes off And go outside like invisible shadow Leave everything you had before And burn it with your house We are waiting for you

about

"Alone Among Mirrors" is a split release between Los Angeles, California's BLACK MARE and Russian Federation's OFFRET.

BLACK MARE's "Woman the Throne" bleak, cold opening riffs chip against the previous silence like hammered chisel into centuries-old slabs of ice before opening up just before the ~2:00 mark, eventually revealing the cavernous domain of sonic textures beneath the dense exoskeleton. This track was conceived, written, and recorded around the sessions that produced the "Death Magick Mother" full length album.

OFFRET'S "We are Waiting" is the ominous summoning that its title infers. Air-siren-conjuring drones and deep, guttural organ tones topped with rattlesnake percussion instantly transport the ear and the mind to another land in another time. Russian lyrics effectively drive the concept home, as most listeners will find themselves strangers in an ominous setting before a triumphant second and third act unfolds from the midpoint on.
