The Sign of Ruin . . .During a religious study class, student Glenn Wallis had a flash of cosmic consciousness while doodling in his notebook.
Upon returning to his ordinary state of consciousness, he discovered that he had been a medium for a transmission from another realm.
A whole page had been filled with the "automatic" doodling of a cryptic glyph, repeated many times over.
Glenn later adopted this glyph as the insignia for his hardcore rock band, Ruin... from there, this symbol, sign, insignia, (whatever), found its way to be graffiti, fingered in cement, painted on jackets and tatooed on living flesh.
It was rendered on canvas by Mike Stevens for the cover of Ruin's "Fiat Lux" lp, and later used for the "Songs of Reverie and Ruin..." disc label art .
Is it the secret sign
of a benevolent occult organization?
Prof. Glenn has no comment.
