One year after the successful release of Adrenochrome and its follow-up remix EP, Meathead’s Lost HD, Marco Visconti and Marko Resurreccion are back and ready to unleash the Alchemy Series: three EPs planned to be released no more than six months from each other, an non-stop audio assault that will once again set aflame the alternative dancefloors worldwide with its mixture of old and new influences from the classic sounds of trance to the modern beats of EDM.
Three releases as three are the phases of the Alchemical process, said to transform the lower metals such as lead into gold, and which is nothing else but a veiled allegory of the initiatory path from man to Godhead.
The flames of the athanor burn for one last time, and will produce the rebis on February 2nd, 2015: while the candles of Imbolc will be light up, we finally reach the end of our journey with "Three of Three: Rubedo".
Rubedo is a Latin word meaning "redness" that was adopted by alchemists to define the final major stage in their magnum opus. Both gold, and the philosopher's stone were associated with the color red, as Rubedo signalled alchemical success, and the end of the great work. The symbols used in alchemical writing and art to represent this red stage can include blood, a phoenix, a rose, a crowned king, or a figure wearing red clothes.
In the framework of psychological development (especially with followers of Jungian psychology), these alchemical steps are viewed as analogous to the process of attaining individuation. In an archetypal schema, Rubedo would represent the Self archetype, and would be the culmination of the four stages, the merging of ego and Self.
The Self manifests itself in "wholeness", a point in which a person discovers their true nature.
