• Mystic Tape Deck successfully funded production of this 50 Page illustrated full color book and companion 16 song CD via Kickstarter in 2019:


    The book is a collection of reprints of several recruitment pamphlets issued by an underground musical/spiritual cult known as the "Cloak Of Nazili" in the early 1970's - complete lyrics with full color plates of original artwork by PS Perkins.

    This edition serves as the minerval guide to the Cloak, a mere introduction to the the world of and beyond the confines of one of the world's most underground, elusive and bizarre hermetic cults. A basic cosmogony and foundation of the surface mythology is cryptically laid out for eager believers and bold adventurers alike. A fusion of reality and fantasy, a "megafictional" blend of myth and fact that at once seeks to explain not only our current place and predicament as a species, but how we got here, and where we might be headed.

    What secrets will the next installment hold?
    What new strange and esoteric truths are waiting to be revealed?


    Includes unlimited streaming of BARDS: Of The Morning Star via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

The Shining One searches for the seat of the soul
through the practice of necromancy.


Wandering around in the wilderness,
Wondering when I’d fall off the edge
Watching as the goat slips and trips over the ledge
Besides the bloody bones, there was nothing that remained
Oh…landing on a landslide, insects, we slip and slide

Wondering around in the land of the lost,
Watching as the highlander Searches in vain,
With a subtle psycho-pathetic black candor
He seemed to have lost something at great cost
So he slaughtered a lamb
And cutting up the cadaver,
He took a shower in the falls

Wandering around in the wilderness,
Through the eyes of a necromancer
As he digs up the remains of a long-passed ancestor
Skull, spine and hips, thigh bones and ribs
were all that remained
Landing on a landslide, like insects we slip and slide

He crushed up the bones
And mixed them with the soil left of the flesh
And with his blood, and that of the lamb
And of the mountain goat
He was flying full of fire, spitting sparks, ever higher
Spinning on the threshold of the heavenly desire

As he gazes out over the grasses
The stars form a picture,
his light begins to flicker
As he soars up over the tower
Poles, charged with power
And sparks like stars in showers
He moves inside you, hunting you down
