About the story behind “Aura Magi”, Ataraxia commented:
“AURA MAGI allows us to access the last phase of the new album journey that’s Rubedo. We are in the higher mental field. In this space, the ether paints sidereal distances, gives us the power of vision, the ability to communicate with the divine forces of the inter-worlds. It is an initiatory passage of renewal and balance, a mystical caress. We contemplate both earthly and cosmic mysteries as we are subtle fire wrapped in mortal flesh. This sonic journey catapults us back into the matter of the origins as renewed creatures. The new ATARAXIA album is a poetic race through the essence of the elements constantly inspired by the elemental spirits of nature as the AURA MAGI video shows.”
“Pomegranate – The Chant Of The Elementals” takes the listener on a unique musical journey, in a mystical walk through space-time between the past, the present and the future.
“Pomegranate – The Chant Of The Elementals” will be released in five formats: luxurious boxset, gold vinyl, A5 Digipack CD, Jewel Case CD and digital. It is now available for pre-order via The Circle Music.
