This is a Phoenix-thread (http://forum.alchemyforums.com/showthread.php?t=7) from the old site (http://alchemy-forums.forumotion.com/forum.htm).

Secret Chiefs 3 is a favourite band that is both esoteric/occult and original/weird, add to this the fact that they make orchestral, persian/arabic and fucking hardcore death metal music (or as they themselves call it: Surf-grindcore-psykadelia)!

Their lyrics is of interest though and can be discussed with an occult angle.

"I never wanted to touch that [the internet] shit with a ten-foot pole. I mean, cyberspace, alternate worlds and all that - it sounds great, but I don't think that's what the Internet is. I think it's a fuckin' jack-off pool." - Trey Spruance

Welcome To The Theatron Animatronique - lyrics

Arbor solis et arbor lunae curse of god rains down forming two great seas
Now the king and queen bathe in mercury because it kills everything

Contra naturum, mors philosophorum let the blood clot 'round sanguinary stone
Who dares block the path on the journey home? pharoah let my people go!

Build the temple high
So the world can see
Build the adytum
And the sanctuary
Then adorned with gold
At the temple feast
Rejoice in work complete

Burn the temple down
Set the captives free
Raze the adytum
And the sanctuary
Strip them of their robes
Spit upon their feast
And hand the temple priests

And the angels fall
And the demons rise
Sons of hermes born
Of the eagle eye
Show the holograms
To their sightless eyes
So that they might become wise

Who can look past
The hypocrites
Who desecrate the truth?
The chosen and saved
Pretending with their slaves
To rejoice in work complete

Who can see past
The "philosophers"
Who have denied the truth?
More cowardly than slaves
All lusting for their graves
They know not what they do

Who can see past the lies?
The lies! lies! lies!
"What is the internet???" Pickles, Dethklok
What do you mean?

And some of their lyrics and concepts are highly alchemical (in my opinion that is)!

Not just your opinion, I guarantee you that the head of Secret Chiefs 3 is far more informed on the topic of alchemy and related topics than the large majority of authors who are paid to write books about them.

You are probably right... although I am not sure alchemical writers get that much cash for their books unless they are called Coelho (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paulo_Coelho).
