'THE LUCIFER PRINCIPLE' bridges the broader works of Howard Bloom's novel of the same title; which "explores the intricate relationships among genetics, human behaviour, and culture" and argues that "evil is a by-product of nature's strategies for creation and that it is woven into our most basic biological fabric". The Lucifer Principle explores with abandon the demented apparatus of the human condition and it's drive towards death, self-destruction and it's return to the inorganic. A knife-edge narrative on the eternal reoccurrence of evil and it's wellspring of violence, The Lucifer Principle lays the rotting foundation and unwelcoming sound that perches upon the rigour mortis of the dead that the album depicts. The underlying theme invokes man's desire to destroy his fellow man, and how that project may never be exhausted so long as there is a piece of Eden to divide. Like Albert Camus described in 'La Peste' in his analogy of the rats:
1.1 The First Con Man, The First Fool 1.2 The Jerusalem Syndrome 1.3 Axis Mundi 1.4 God's Gonna Cut You Down
