CHILDREN OF THE CORN is the third part of the trilogy
"A Triptychon of Ghosts (or: El Sexorcismo de Anna-Varney Cantodea)".
release note:
"Ancient ghosts are walking balefully through the blood-red cornfield, where our black Goddess (the fabulous, transgendered Saint-Varney-of-the-Dead) is celebrating the third chapter of her magical sexorcism in a dark ritual of ultimate neutralisation. Her gentle, claw-like hands are brandishing a rusty, old castration-sickle, while she herself, as the purest incarnation of loveliest maidenhood, intones childlike phantasies of innocent masturbation with the voice of a broken angel.

In this gothic-pagan masterpiece of delicate perversion, a whole array of stringed instruments, bells and music-boxes are skilfully combining fragile moments of calm and security with powerful eruptions of dynamic insanity in that typical, unique Sopor manner.

As this crowning finale of the trilogy 'A Triptychon O Ghosts' unfolds, the artful expulsion of demons that is 'Children of the Corn' once again proves that Anna-Varney Cantodea is indeed the most important Death-artist the gothic underground scene has ever brought forth.

Harvest is coming..."
