  1. This guys can now get married and live a happy life cause they have written a masterpiece. They cant get any better than this

  2. Honestly I think the song writing on this one song makes the whole album. Lyrically it mixes with the weirdness of the music, to tell a dark and lonesome story.

  3. Recreant deeds
    In lightless places
    They pick my bones
    And hide their faces
    They pick my bones
    And sing their praises

    (With) no heart of our own
    Still forced to take it
    Into minds and onto hands
    I set my seed at zero
    I object to your demands

    The dull ache of twisting space
    Grinding teeth
    Devouring mouths to mutter,
    Words without grace
    What lies beneath….
    ….The ocean of ideas?
    Shame or repentance?
    Curled up and ready to strike
    Until the earth has perished

    And once again,
    Ready to create something like…
    …You and I

    Ritual re-enactment
    In selfsame glory
    Reliving life's every wing
    I shred my memories
    To no longer think
    Down the bottomless pit
    Sink dignity sink

    What story is there to tell?
    God taught his children to hate
    Onwards my journey to hell
    What was my fatal mistake?
    A liberty that will never acquit,
    Eating me up bit by bit
    Something I came to depend on
    Once adored, but now gone

    Don't fear the frown
    From the tongue-washed disdain
    Don't hear the slander
    When no one remains
    Don't wear no crown
    When they shout your name
    Don't carry the burden
    Don't suffer the blame

    When every side is met
    …To no purpose,
    For a consciousness in debt
    How I hung upon these thoughts
    Of a flawed life's rightful duel,
    To encounter what come may
    And forever suffer through…

    One's own beating heart
    Forced to separate
    From the one you love
    …And ever so desperate
    For a fresh start
    No virtue paid to solve regret
    …All but wishes, but nothing yet

  4. I love those old school BM, slowed down, warped vocals that make singers sound like demons. Sounds like the sound track to a fantasy underworld like The Abyss, Tarturus or Hades. I wish people where I lived would get into these guys so I could at least stand a chance of seeing them live.

  5. it may seem strange but the last part with blast beat reminds me of the early Anathema with Darren White on vocals. Think Pentecost III. At least this voice is as passionate.
