about

Menimals

The four musicians are the sonic representation of the cosmic beauty and symmetry embodied in the Platonic solids, the classical elements of alchemy, and the symbolic animal spirits whose masks they wear:
- The Rat - Drums
Hexahedron - Earth - The most stable element, the layer on which the other instruments stand.
- The Chimera - Bass/Additional Guitar
Icosahedron - Water - Is complementary to earth and is the most mobile element.
- The Gryphon - Guitar/Production
Octahedron - Air - The water lies on the earth, the air lies in the surface of the water. Constantly flies between melody and noise.
- Doctor Forge - Voice
Tetrahedron - Man - Fire - The most mutable and unpredictable element. It can be a spark or a blaze. It carries the light. It's the lantern in the dark that shows the passageway.

The four Elements together create the Dodecahedron – Aether, void, or quintessence, the most subtle and incorruptible element. The medium of sound, it is inaccessible to all other senses. This is the MUSIC.

Track Name: In This Unforgiving Heat
In this unforgiving heat

where is safe?
how tight is taut?
enemies lying in wait
there are things I crave
strange fantasies permeate
you can never know what lurks below
hot / cold - compensate
I sweat for no reason but my own
struggling
reckless
chaos
the common suffer while others carry on
Track Name: It's in the space between neurons where the true shift occours
burn
burn
burn

sharp smell - sandalwood
clean smell - pine
savory like oak
sweet smell - cherry

into the forge
animator
it's all in, set to go
hands on control
from the billows
blow
remove it's hold
banish it's fold
there, there
in the shadows
close the door
return to dark
resolve
come to being
RISE!

you have to feed it
it needs to feed
hunger
hungry to receive
give it air
breathe your breath
it takes your wind
now winded
it takes your wind
now winded

amoral right down to the ashes
no morals in the fire, no compassion

coals glow
darken
reawakened
shedding flecks of white skin
little plates of purpose, spent
little angels on missions, intent
upend
stir
mix some blood and scorch some bone

know your place!

are you okay?
tell me, how are you okay?

know your place!
Track Name: Subtles angles exposing shapes of the divine
to call to form
summon the wind, flowing
into the air (a mother's sin)

and now exposed
secure ego, melting
from what is known (a father's sin)

angles and shapes
