Happy New Years 2013 from Lazarus Rising #deadinsideRise
A late Happy New Years’. The very reason you are able to read this is because you are a survivor. Welcome to the ranks. 2013 greets us with open arms. Again thank you all for the support that we here at Lazarus Rising has received with the release of Black Box on December the 21st 2012. We are at 7,500+ views already and counting. Thanks for the titanic support and we look forward to growing from strength to strength as we move forward.
That is the horde philosophy we need to adopt.
Light that burns like a quasar. It expands in front of you. A primitive mind fails to grasp the enormity of something that a genius compressed into a simple equation. Napoleon said:
“God is on the side with the best artillery.”
So it is only safe to assume whoever finger hovers over the button is the Saint of Death.
The single, resounding and defining moment the world changes for our Soldier in Lazarus Rising begins with ‘God’s Light’…
… and ends with man’s undoing.

Man is nothing but a speck on this vast blackness we have called universe. And there are moments we a dwarfed, overwhelmed even, by great unknowns. I like this image for one particular reason, the composition. The extreme low angle creates a lovely sense of dynamism. But also, in the traditional sense, low angles connotate the viewed object as powerful. This Image however does the opposite; a soldier, who is already large in the frame, is further dwarfed by the looming clouds of downwind. This is the first time we see the nuclear explosion, rather remnants of it, and I believe the image both makes a unique cinematic reveal of this man-made blight of chaos whilst connoting a sense of vast despair and awe in the soldier who stands under the nuclear cloud.
War transforms wholly. Eternally.
I, Father Author and Creator, had a little radio interview over the weekend with David Michaels on OnFM 101.4, where I talked about Lazarus Rising amongst other creative projects. Have a listen (sorry for the poor quality sound at some parts, I wasn’t working with the best of mics):
We are on the rise.
