EIGHTH TOWER RECORDS - Second Compilation Announced, Three Tracks Streaming Now

Eighth Tower Records, a sub-label of Unexplained Sounds Group, has released its second compilation, The Great Architect. This time around they focus on the God creator of Gnostic tradition. Eighth Tower Records says about the theme, "Gnostic tradition boils down to the notion of a God creator as a malicious being, an evil Demiurge responsible for the creation of existence. It follows that all material existence is evil, and this accounts for the anticosmism in Gnosticism. According to a number of Gnostic traditions, and later in Manichean theology, an extra-worldly supreme deity existed above the inferior creator God. Much like Plato’s Demiurge in the Timaeus, the creator did not create matter ex nihilo, out of nothing, because matter was already present. The Demiurge merely re-formed it to his purposes, and imprisoned souls from the higher planes of reality in the corporeal forms of human beings." The album will be released on 17 March 2017. Link.
