It’s with great honour that we present the latest album by Swedish dark ambient stalwart raison d’être.
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’être 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’être” of raison d’être, a shadowy journey
through our unconscious the individuation process and archetypes. This
release also marks the first time a raison d’être album will be
available on the vinyl format. Artwork by Nihil.
