🌙 Unveil the Dark Charms of "Rituals and Recipes" by The Blake Robinson Synthetic Orchestra & Gloom Darkheart 🌙

Delving deeper into their treasury of shadowy anthems, Blake and Gloom present "Rituals and Recipes", a whimsical yet sinister exploration of arcane concoctions and the macabre rituals that bring them to life. This latest entry continues to showcase their knack for blending the eerie with the enchanting, setting tales of the occult to melodies that resonate with an almost spellbinding quality.

"Rituals and Recipes" mixes acoustic elegance with the haunting whispers of pop and orchestral resonance, enveloping listeners in a narrative ripe with dark humor and chilling undertones. The lyrics, a guidebook to the fantastical and frightful, serve as an instruction manual for the curious and the daring, detailing the creation of a 'Blake' and the summoning of 'the gloom'.

Over 15 years of collaboration have finely tuned Blake's compositional wizardry and Gloom's vocal enchantment, painting aural pictures that hover between the whimsical and the wicked. Their combined artistry crafts an immersive experience, inviting listeners to partake in the rituals and recipes of a world veiled in mystery and magic.

lyrics

The manual reads that you need to grab a bottle of fermented blood
You need the eye of a heron and the beak of a duck
And a whole lotta luck!
A couple dashes of pepper, a tortuous night near the end of a life,
A couple hours baked in the oven like a cake
Yeah my friend, that's how you make a Blake

It's a recipe for disaster
A life that's lived happy never after
You best close your eyes
It's a lesson in how to cast a
spell that won't end well for
You best close your eyes

The manual reads that you need to cast a circle with chalk on the ground,
You need five candles to honour the drowned,
And the Gloomnomicon to summon 'er out
And when the clock then strikes three, you'll hear a blood curdling scream
That means she's weaving through seams
From the bonds that buried her deep to her doom
Well then my friend, that's how you summon the gloom

It's a lesson in how to cast a
Spell that won't end well for
You best close your eyes
It's a recipe for disaster
A life that's lived happy never after
You best close your eyes

The manual reads that you need a couple bodies fresh outta the grave,
You need some sutures and fresh bandages
And a couple of sausages-
