Maior Arcana: The Words That Turn Flesh into Light is the third album by the Polish symphonic black metal band Lux Occulta. It is actually a compilation of four new tracks, dubbed the Maior Arcana EP and comprising the first four tracks of the disc, and the band's 1995 demo The Forgotten Arts, which comprises the final five tracks of the disc. As such, the compilation is often labeled as an EP, despite being in fact longer than the band's previous release, Dionysos.
"Love (Garden of Aphrodite)" and "War" share considerable amounts of melodic material. "Love (Garden of Aphrodite)" and "Love," despite similar titles, are otherwise unrelated. "Heart of the Devil" is a cover of a song by Danzig, and "Burn" is a cover of a song by The Sisters of Mercy.
Famous quotes containing the words flesh, turn, light and/or words:
“For present joys are more to flesh and blood
Than a dull prospect of a distant good.”
—John Dryden (16311700)
“Old women snore violently. They are like bodies into which bizarre animals have crept at night; the animals are vicious, bawdy, noisy. How they snore! There is no shame to their snoring. Old women turn into old men.”
—Joyce Carol Oates (b. 1938)
“Libraries are reservoirs of strength, grace and wit, reminders of order, calm and continuity, lakes of mental energy, neither warm nor cold, light nor dark. The pleasure they give is steady, unorgastic, reliable, deep and long-lasting. In any library in the world, I am at home, unselfconscious, still and absorbed.”
—Germaine Greer (b. 1939)
“O he was fair,
even when I flung his words in his teeth,
I will soon be dead
I must learn from the young.”
—Hilda Doolittle (18861961)
