In advance of MOSAIC's upcoming debut full-length 'Secret Ambrosian Fire', set for release in late November, the band – directed by multi-instrumentalist Valkenstijn (also active in Sun of the Sleepless, Empyrium) – opens a new circle with Cloven Fires. Known for its long and complex atmospheric battery, the band's upcoming music offers an entirely different approach to what it calls "Supreme Thuringian Folklore."
„Cloven Fires“ was recorded in Valkenstijn's House of Inkantation, between MMXV and MMXVI, and features D.E. of Werian on drums and longtime collaborator Leshiyas (Vivus Humare) on bass. The song itself deals with the four alchemistic transformation stages in a rather deep and metaphorical fashion.
The b-side of the vinyl includes an exclusive unreleased recording from the Inkantation vaults, titled „Ambrosia.“ Featuring former Secrets of the Moon drummer Heemann on percussion, and recorded between MMXIV and MMXV, the track is a disturbing call to reflect modern society's imminent collapse.
"On this recording Mosaic goes into more of a mixture of dark and black metal as well as getting very experimental at times."

"it’s a very personal listening experience, created by someone who indeed does not have any musical limits."
"Two different tracks, two dark listens."
..."intelligent Black Metal with a very special atmosphere."
With "Cloven Fires" they know how to arouse curiosity with only two songs.
"Their music makes me feel like my arms can stretch up to the sky and touch the sun while feeling my feet firmly rooted in forever."
