SC3: Traditionalists takes it to the musical realm of giants: Mancini, Bernstein and the like. And for a good reason...

lyrics

There's a petrol-casino at the top of the world, and in it there's a great roulette wheel spinning widdershins. Insider games of quantity for the big-scale molecule shufflers, the House deals out fates to a world blinded by the Orient/Occident mirage and the

SYSTEM of ANTICHRIST.

The stakes are high and the big winners are crowned le «Roi du Monde» by their amateur Cakravartin... one after the other... but everyone knows the House always wins in

The SYSTEM of ANTICHRIST.

In it is strength. He shall establish.

The SYSTEM of ANTICHRIST.

Not being entranced by Cartesian dualism, the ancient Egyptians situated the top of the world at the South Pole. The Manichaeans on the other hand, saw the southerly direction as blatantly "evil".

All dolled up with nowhere else to go but the transhuman experiment in immortality... says a literal Vampire. We'll see what the God of Quantity has to say about that. But the back-spinning clocks herald a new kind of morning, and a new kind of daylight, from the same deadly sun. So, Dr. Youngblood, what kind of coffin can shield us from the sun rising in the occident? Make quick work of the Great Work. Mephistopheles suggests you get it done before they switch on the machine in the full-scale implementation of

The SYSTEM of ANTICHRIST
