“ ♄ ” (Saturnus) is our sublimated tribute to the dark planet who rules over Lead and the alchemical stage of Nigredo (Putrefaction, an initial step required to purify the First Matter). Beginning with the decreasing Moon, Nigredo is the first stage of the alchemical Opus Magnum, which final goal is the creation of the divine elixir, also called the philosopher's stone that turns Lead into Gold... | Released March 31, 2016 on Last Quarter ( ☾ ) | Design, Music & Lyrics by Emesis, except; "Cuarto Menguante" Music by Ghamil (Inmacoitada Concepción).

>> "Mystical, melancholic, esoteric, and philosophical. These are some of the words that can describe, in a very modest way, the amazingness of this album's concept. Please, I invite you to check the lyrics, as they are true poems." - Marcus D. Goulart (Metal-Maniac.com
>> "The independent and sole musicianship of Emesis, occultist, artist, and general culture anti-hero. Drawing upon the inner and outer metaphysical mysteries, and their symbols, Saturn is an album which attempts to express that very milk of human connectivity to beyond. We feel it, some of us more than the rest, and when it happens, we are forced to produce something ground breaking, earth shattering, or sky scorching. I'd say this album does a good job at reaching for all three of those goals." - Rowan Blair Colver
