. . . The above passage is also 'Ancient Greek' transliterated into the Latin alphabet...

... From what I understand there are very significant differences between 'Ancient' & 'Modern' Greek. Many ancient greek texts were translated into Latin; & the english language contains a great deal of both of these. 100 years ago both of these languages were still required learning in the more prestigious schools. Crowley came from a wealthy family, so he had access to, & excelled in these courses. I can bet that if you showed those lines to many modern greeks you would get a "WTF!". Well, we shall see. I will also try to look into this further....


You have to stand corrected on that one. Many ancient Greek texts were translated into Arabic, and from there translated into Latin. The Roman Catholic church made sure that none of the original ancient Greek texts survived due to the heathen-character of it. The fact that we still have those texts is because muslim scientists saw the significance of these works and translated them from Greek into Arabic. In the renaissance, European scholars discovered that a lot of the ancient Greek texts were 'salvaged' by Arab scientists and translated them from Arabic into Latin.

. . I do "stand corrected"- I had forgotten about that when I wrote the above;- but, it was not as simple as either of us said. Many works were also stowed away, particularily in Monasteries, & in the libraries of the wealthy& influential in Europe; for instance, the British Isles preserved alot due to their remoteness. It was not all about mediterranean trade, or the respectful far-seeing appreciation of the mideast; though these great wars of the past have turned everything upsidedown more than once . . .

If anyone is wondering on how to say Eparistera Daimones, I was talking with my Aunt today (she lives in Thessaloniki, Greece) and she confirmed my pronunciation of the album title: (Eh-poddy-steh-dah Dah-ee-moh-ness).

The Greek "R" is almost like a rolled "R" in Spanish, but not as severe, and comes of more like a slight "D" sound. The "Dai" pronounced quickly sounds like "Die", but properly it is supposed to roll out a tad slower being a bit between "Dah-ee" and "Die"

Confusing? Wink


Good thing the question wasn't in person, or you'd have gotten a big, fat, Greek-Orthodox slap on the back of your head from talking that way.

BTW- I could have sworn we had at least one member here from Greece.

I just listened to Eparistera Daimones. Unfortunately, only with Skype. I talked to a friendly journalist. And in the background we heard the album. I am very impressed by Eparistera Daimones! Goetia is a fantastic opener. And Myopic Empire is a truly brilliant song, just like The Prolonging. A very dark, powerful and majestic album!

She told me that there are no promotional CDs. Journalists can download watermarked MP3s of the songs from iPool. Since Saturday she only listens to Eparistera Daimones! She thinks that this will be the album of the year! Definitely a masterpiece by Tom and Triptykon and just as good as Monotheist!!

I'm off to our chief editor to ask where my access to I-Pool is...

Checked back: the Dutch department of Century Media will release the I-Pool next week. That will be one VERY LONG week...
Don't forget to vote TMT on monday...

i really liked 'drown in ashes' and 'obscured' on Monotheist. Did you hear something in a similar vein?

Regarding this album, I wonder if anyone could shed some additional light on it. We know the four members of the band perform on the album, but does anyone else make appearances on the album?

Perhaps Simone Vollenweider or Manu Moan?

Or did they utilize any studio musicians for an orchestra as they did on Monotheist (and previous albums)?
