Eyes of stone With skin stretched across the face A breathing statue's embrace Cold fingers seep beneath my face As I stare into stone windows Cold fingers seep beneath my skull As stone windows stare into me As a smile spreads across their face I see the shadow of beared teeth pressing through their flesh Thousands of faces lurch from underneath their skin each one a sculptor moulding my mind to the image beneath the stone My heart is on fire My mind grasped by their hands Weaving their strings Of doubt and fear Fire embraces my hands And spills over my mind It strangles the strings and I watch them turn to ash Images of shattered stone dance calmly in the flames Fire guides my hands towards the entrance of the soul Peeling back their skin, I slide my nails into their eyes Fire guides my hands and I pull apart the stone So I can peer into the cavern of marrow My heart turns to embers My mind spills from my eyes Must I wear your skin to see through your eyes

Empress 05:52
Sear this moment Into my eyes Let my mind Touch the sun Feeling steel Drawing crimson Across the lines Her nails traced Let it slide Down her throat Sear this moment Into my eyes Let my mind Touch the sun Midnight From blackened sun Drowned in the waters of her suffocating gaze Affixed atop her tower constructed of ruby flesh Lies the sun Dyed in white Sear this moment Into my eyes Let my mind Touch the sun No more Let's gut her Sear her skin On the sun Dye it red Rebirth Cast the world In scarlet

Infinite space Staring at the Earth Each star An eye A slender figure writhes Under the black cloth The crescent moon aligns As they tear away the cloth A serpent chokes them, Three stars embedded in their skull They vomit ink onto me It fills my mouth. Crawling down my throat Strands of cloth Burst from my skin The cloth is bound to space Space is moving away The Earth will be alone Only the figure watches now He smiles As I am torn apart Atrophy Into entropy Nihil Blind space No Earth Of the cloth, Only strands remain Pulled apart By the figure It laughs As it Turns to nihil

Through the Boundless static ocean She carves an infinite descent Only the eyes to guide Painting with the mind Moving into nothing Feels like standing, And with no canvas to cling The ocean swallows the colours Praying to the event horizon Praying for matter Her shrieks split the ocean A masked figure falls On wings of material Calling from his hands, structures appear Earth upon which to stand Constrained now to the ground, But able to move. "Now, Walk." Years fall by, like rain Walking and walking and walking and walking and walking The legs wither Skin drapes from the bones Painting lines and lines over featureless land A new horizon is summoned The figure peels away his mask, Strings of skin fall And pool on the ground "Wander no more, and paint upon these walls." And his flesh walked through the air, climbing higher around her Spaces of movement slowly collapsing Into a single point dimension Painting circles and circles, She reaches up and claws at the skin Chanted: From the lowest chasm of the mind, the final horizon is summoned Screamed: A new figure descends Head adorned by the sun Chanted: What was once in abysal astral caves And now rests in the sky And will bring the sun to her Speak your wish: Screamed: "I want to die!" Lay down the sun

Immolation 05:48
Frail arms hold The marrow walls Shrieking spectres Throw themselves toward Each empty crash fells a new spear Through the head Pressing bone into the ribs, arms turn to dust Stalking the halls of the mind The gentle melody that seeps through the cracks Marrow falls away Eyes set skyward Free from the body's tomb Mine Bind them To the ground Gently, caress... Cut their eyes Break their legs Gently... Slide hands over the ribcage Cut out the heart And endless nights Disappear Cast their hearts Onto the pile Let the flame Sear my skin Final verse: Warmth, at last.

Corpse pillars Filled with mannequins Hollow chests Screaming mind Pillar reaches Falling sky Walk to the moon Fragile hands Ground to dust Throw the shards On the pile Build a pathway To the sky Is this our blood? Breathing steel Wrapped around the spine Hauling lifeless Screaming minds Dragged by the ribs Talons in the eyes Breath of steel Broken arms Don't breath Don't let them Fill the chest With their metal hands Drapsed, like a broken hand, The path beyond the sky. Walked by metal beings. Not so much as a glance spared for what suffocates under the hand's grip. Breathing steel Wrapped around the spine Hauling lifeless Screaming minds Mannequins watch The final steps Find nothing beyond the sky But death in Keter.

about

From London UK comes this new blend of Post Black, Atmospheric Black but not lacking the aggression that more traditional black brings to the arena. Focused on today's dystopic reality, the vitriol filled atmosphere is going to envelope you. With a fresh approach and the riffing chops to back it up this is for sure a band to keep an eye out for and we as a label are really proud to bring this to you.

Also don't miss out on the unexpected hidden bonus cover track from a post-punk legend as well that's included with the download and the physicals.
