PILLARS: Seeds of Ares is the second issue of Volume 2 of this series released by Anathema Publishing.
This particular issue of PILLARS comes with a 5 track CD featuring an incredible roster of artists: Neraterræ, New Risen Throne, Taphephobia, Treha Sektori, and Visions.
PILLARS: Seeds of Ares explores the ‘martian’ side of magickal practice, and analyze phenomena of psychic violence, what it means to engage in transgressive and subversive art, to dive deep into shadow-work, to embrace the unconventional and the radical, the vicious and immoral, perhaps even the damning, and the taboo. To understand one’s wrath and conditioning, and the fearlessness that inspires work with such currents.
What attracts some of us to these systems, and what benefits do they provide, if any?
The conversation is centered around how this work may lead to self-realization and actualization, and what kind of fulfillment one seeks. Or, if one plays the contrarian (which we also encouraged), are negative currents really all that ‘negative,’ or are we merely the product of modern life where so many people view the world in starkly black and white terms?
If anything, this particular issue of PILLARS is meant to be a thorough investigation of the human condition, what uneasiness or reassurance this thought may bring to the forefront of consciousness, and how one proceeds to harmonize these aspects of the Self through the usage of such polarizing angles.
