New album by Russian ritual ambient entity Corona Barathri, offering 4 rituals, 4 sacrificial stones as the the foundation of this opus. Enthralling incantations merge with deep ceremonial atmospherics, immersing one into the realm of ritualistic fervour. A foreboding aural channeling of dark forces by Chthonia, Darkarma and Hekte Zaren which also features appearances by Martyria and Nam-Khar.
Recorded in 2018-2020 the album is dedicated to the memory of Andrey Kein (Corona Barathri).
The rituals are aimed at:
I. Liberation of and ancient witch's soul sealed in stone. Now she is free. Forever in Darkness.
II. A Witch is calling to the Black Heart standing by the funeral pyre…With her blood, mortal flesh and bones, she feeds the blazing flame…It burns everything that is human and divine.
III. The call to Astaroth. Revelations coming through the Breath of Darkness. Sinister Wisdom granted to all unholy souls. Insanity for the children of the Earth.
IV. Descent into the depths of the Dark. Into Tartarus. Homecoming.

Review by Side-Line Magazine: side-line.com/corona-barathri-lapis-sacrificialis-album-cyclic-law/
"2021 has been a year of extreme highs and lows for Corona Barathri… Unfortunately, earlier this year, one of their core members Andrey Kein passed away, leaving Ilya Affectvs as the sole core member, once again. This crushing blow to the project was somewhat offset by the massive achievement of releasing their latest album Lapis Sacrificialis by one of the top labels in the dark/ritual ambient scene, Cyclic Law. This album includes daemonic collaborations with Martyria and Nam-khar, as well as haunting vocal sections by Chthonia, Darkarma, and Hekte Zaren. While Andrey Kein will be sorely missed in the ritual ambient scene, there are no signs of Corona Barathri slowing down, they are poised to be one of the top names in ritual ambient, if they haven’t already achieved that feat."
