Shut me in Out of sight and forgotten My body's not rotten But some might say my mind is Bite and claw at the ceiling Distraught Caught and reeling From what I think is happening So I Take the throne On my own I will rule Absolutely nothing In my hole I am King I don't feel a single thing "Don't keep so silent— I know you're in there..." Air is thinning Head is swimming Please don't leave me here I'M NOT DEAD YET This matter lies closed With a concrete lid I will always be beneath you Digging Nails bleeding Just to find out where you hid Locked up inside All dried up [Interlude] Earth's become a mausoleum I try not to remember LEST WE FORGET This matter lies closed With a concrete lid I will always be beneath you Digging Nails bleeding Just to find out where you hid Cover your eyes DENY ME [Interlude] The Passion is internalised Our Sacrifice complete Our fragile lives are petrified Roofed over by concrete As Adepts glady tell you And the neophytes all know Be Patient and Be Silent As Above So Below 1986 'Til we first met This matter lies closed With a concrete lid I will always be beneath you Latent And waiting 'Til I find out where you hid Say 'Goodbye' Just remember I'M NOT DEAD YET No, I'm not dead yet. . In my hole I am King I don't feel a single thing

about

Magick, Music and Ritual 15, the one and only album release for 2020 from the Anthology Project, is being released for the anniversary of the December 3, 1996 birthday of the Hermetic Library, with a playlist of 8 tracks by 7 artists, new and returning voices, for this Hermetic Library Anthology Album.

Our cover includes The Hanged Man, from the Dream Logic Tarot project, artwork from a collaboration by Jay Gidwitz and Anthony Teth for this current year in the Thelemic Calendar, An V:vi (2020 e.v.), which represents the docosade of Atu V, the Hierophant and the year of Atu VI, The Lovers. However, the image itself, as described in the artists' statements, is Atu XII, The Hanged Man, and was chosen because of our current lives in these plague years. We also have an alternative cover, included with the album download, that features Alchemy Mask by Jay Gidwitz.

As a bonus download, included with this issue, is the video Supernatural by Vivian Giourousis, with music by Kristeen Young, performed by Waterworks.

The Hermetic Library at Hermetic.com has an overall vision of Archiving, Engaging and Encouraging the living Western Esoteric Tradition, Hermeticism, and Aleister Crowley’s Thelema for over 20 years. I started the benefit anthology project to help promote newer works in the Esoteric Tradition to the audience of the Hermetic Library and beyond. The anthology project also further raises awareness about the corpus and culture of magick and ritual.

I encourage you to check out the Hermetic Library at Hermetic.com, if you aren’t already familiar with it, as that’s the reason this project exists and may also offer inspiration to you. The site was started in 1996 and has ever since consistently been an extremely popular resource for students and researchers interested in the Esoteric Tradition.
