The song is a testament to society and what is going on in the world, especially from a standpoint of urban America. Dying gods ’cause gods are dying we leave in the day where the false gods of mainstream religion are idolized over arcane esoteric gods of the occult.
It probably would be easier if we told you what J.Flash doesn’t do, but Flash is an MC, entrepreneur, comic book writer, director, actor, and producer. His journey has been anything but painless. J.Flash started writing poetry at the age of 6 and began to turn those poems into narrative rhymes with thought provoking lyrics. After his first love with football didn’t pan out, J.Flash focused all of his energy into his music. In 2011, J.Flash made the inaugural Hulkshare “Featured Artist” list and was described as a “lyricist with a boom bap conversational flow”. J.Flash will be making the documentary hip hop film “Art of Rhyme 2.0” alongside Mos Def, Black Thought, KRS-ONE, and others. Flash’s first feature film “Boundary of Love” will be appearing on the festival circuit in 2013 as well as his comic “Diaries of Invasion”. J.Flash is ready to take the game by storm and will stop at nothing until he has done just that.

Magick, Music and Ritual 10, the one and only album release for 2014 from the Anthology Project, is being released around Autumnal Equinox, Sun in Libra, 2014, with 26 tracks and over 2 hours of music by 21 artists, new and returning voices, and some tracks exclusive to the Hermetic Library and this anthology.
The artwork for this issue was created by Terra Bosart and is an interpretation of Atu 0, the Fool, in Tarot. One way of counting years is to use a cycle of Tarot cards. The current year count is Anno V 0 which can be represented by, and thus can be seen as having correspondence to, a combination of both Atu V, the Hierophant, and Atu 0, the Fool.
In addition to the cover, for the first time, this anthology release includes two bonus images. The first is an illustration that accompanies the OrosKhaos track “The Great Descent”. The second image is a visual word play on “Magick Music Ritual” by Craig Conley, who appears on this release as part of the group Esperantoland. These bonus images are part of the download and are intended to offer an additional surface on which to reflect the feelings and thoughts developed by listening and deepened in relationship to this playlist.
The Hermetic Library at Hermetic.com has an overall vision of Archiving, Engaging and Encouraging the living Western Esoteric Tradition, Hermeticism, and Aleister Crowley’s Thelema. I started the benefit anthology project to help promote newer works in the Western Esoteric Tradition to the audience of the Hermetic Library and beyond. The anthology project also further raises awareness about the corpus and culture of magick and ritual.
I encourage you to check out the Hermetic Library at Hermetic.com, if you aren’t already familiar with it, as that’s the reason this project exists and may also offer inspiration to you. The site was started in 1996 and has ever since consistently been an extremely popular resource for students and researchers interested in the Western Esoteric Tradition.
Please join the Hermetic Library in promoting these artists who have contributed their work to this benefit anthology album project. Please also spread the word about these anthology albums to people you think may be interested in the work of artists who combine magick, music and ritual.
