      Raison D´etre
      "Alchymeia "

      Label: Cyclic Law (2018)

      ItÂ’s with great honour that we present the latest album by Swedish dark ambient stalwart raison dÂ’Ăªtre. This time Peter Andersson scrutinizes the paths of Carl Gustav Jung's notions of archetypes and the individuation process. Just like Mise en Abyme, the previous raison d'Ăªtre album from 2014, Alchymeia is diving deep down to the shadows of the unconsciousness, and back to a dawn of the true Self. Confronting the shadow within is the darkest time of despair. There seems no way forward, only down. All is blackening and decomposed. Suddenly, through an enantiodromia, the ever deepening descent into the unconscious transmogrifies and becomes gradually illuminated. The melancholia is being purified. Alchymeia is in a sense the “raison d'Ăªtre” of raison d'Ăªtre, a shadowy journey through our unconscious the individuation process and archetypes. This release also marks the first time a raison d'Ăªtre album will be available on vinyl. Artwork by Nihil.
