Coph Nia is the dark ambient/martial music act from Sweden formed by Aldenon Satorial. Coph Nia’s music tends to drift between dark ambient soundscapes and ritual anthems. Many of the tracks betray Aldenon’s interest in the Western magical tradition and the work of Aleister Crowley.
The name “Coph Nia” derives from Chapter 3 of Aleister Crowley’s “Liber AL vel Legis” . The passage reads in full: “I am the Lord of the Double Wand of Power; the wand of the Force of Coph Nia—but my left hand is empty, for I have crushed an Universe; & nought remains.” (AL III:72).
Aldenon maintains an official web site of Coph Nia at myspace. His main website, www.cophnia.com, now redirects to this MySpace profile.
