“Previous Peni incarnations have never sounded like this, though one did actually out peni the Peni!” – Nick Blinko of Rudimentary Peni after listening to this recording.
All Lyrics by Rudimentary Peni
Musical Interpretations and performance by Chelsea Wolfe
1. A HANDFUL OF DUST
I will show you fear in a handful of dust
language of agony, torment in sound. weeping of ancestors formed into words. the echo of anguish, primeval sorrow
3: BLACK ON GOLD / SICKENING FOR SOMETHING
lapis lazuli turquoise and amethyst black on gold viridian and jasmine tan and black ruby and cinnabar dove grey puke pink onyx and bronze vermillion and amber jade and amber black on gold 454 Angell Street Black on gold green to feel blue gawd those colors opium madness unleashed! supreme final ecstasy.
give me that decanter, eliot!
4: DISSOLUTION/REHEARSAL FOR MORTALITY
it matters not that i did seek, to conquer fear and vanquish pain, for victory belongs to grief, so into tears dissolve in vain.
in this rehearsal for mortality I learn acceptance and can no longer return with such tenacity to cling to all that is me to all that is me
5: PRAYER FOR THE UNBORN
let us rest in oblivion forever and ever amen
