Katelyn R Thompson This album kept surprising me. Great blending of genres that fluidly moves between chugging riffs, soft melodies, and proggy noodling- all against a big atmospheric backdrop! Plenty of layers to unpack over repeat listens. Favorite track: Crevasse.

drummondf You've clearly got to listen end-to-end. I can tell I will have to play this album at least a dozen more times before I can feel like I've absorbed it entirely. Great work. Favorite track: The Holy Procession.

Track Name: The Host
Senses burning as the animal seeks us
Rising from the blood we shed upon this earth
It’s eating us whole
We’re sick of this place
Its eyes burn deep into our souls
Recognized, and antagonized
By the shadows in our home

The silence sets inside
As we fade from the reckoning of time
Waiting for the end, and we’re waiting for the answer
Searching deep between these plains
Digging for the open road
What I know draws closer
Nothing ever seems the same
Will I ever sleep again
As the skies fog over
Silent screams keep me awake

Run
Every second escapes you
Run
Till the sound surrounds you

WHO ARE YOU
Screaming, innocence, I’m fading
WHERE ARE YOU
Thrown into the darkness, bleeding
YOU ARE BREAKING
It’s so cold, It’s so cooold
FEEL EVERYTHING
Is this my final breath

Bloodied hands around my neck
Separate the truth from spoken words
Seasons change but no remorse
I can hear their laughter

WHO ARE YOU
Screaming, innocence, I’m fading
WHERE ARE YOU
Thrown into the darkness, bleeding
YOU ARE BREAKING
It’s so cold, It’s so cooold
FEEL EVERYTHING
This is my final breath

This is my final breath

Senses burning as the animal seeks us
Rising from the blood we shed upon this earth
It’s eating us whole
We’re sick of this place
Its eyes burn deep into our souls
Recognized, and antagonized
By the shadows in our home
Track Name: Entities
The primal self returns again
Shadows of what we’ve broken

Function override, commence the cleansing
Strip away all codes, beliefs
Nothing more than cattle personified
This is what we conceived

The primal self returns again
Shadows of what we’ve broken

Void within perilous design
Chants of a broken divide
The immanent buried within
Bound by the way we sin

Vector that we rode upon
A descent to the end of dawn
As separated paths collide
Remember who you are

A sanctuary of my own
Thoughts collide against these white walls
Stripped of the peril of my world
Some space to rise against this force

The primal self returns again
Shadows of what we’ve broken

This is our time
To open up
Break their design
Disturb the universe
Eyes unaware
We’ll carry on as we
kill ourselves again

A sanctuary of my own
Thoughts collide against these white walls
Stripped of the peril of my world
Some space to rise against this force

You are the catalyst
Breaking from paralysis
Inanimate beings arise
We are all One
Track Name: Skies Set Ablaze
Ice and Fire
Will purify
the Earth that was once like a dream

Roused desire
Spirit frozen over
Will I take the path or be pulled in?

Forces
Bellowing from the undertow
Pulling me into the depth of the unknown
What does it mean to go on
Remnants of the onslaught

Playing with blood
Watching the world burn
Is this enough
Wails of a broken heart

Sentient souls of broken terrain
Crumbles in fear
Remains of our promises
Left to be forgotten

I’m taking back the land that was mine
End of the death and destruction in my mind
I’ve been waiting, I’m done waiting
To live, to see destruction

Bellowing from the undertow
Pulling me into the depth of the unknown
What does it mean to go on
Remnants of the onslaught

Playing with blood
Watching the world burn
Is this enough
Wails of a broken heart

Bellowing from the undertow
Pulling me into the depth of the unknown
What does it mean to survive
Remnants of the onslaught

What once lived shall perish
What once breathed shall die
Dragged into the depths of
Fire and Ice
Track Name: The Holy Procession
The Holy Procession
will guide my way
Let me partake on the waters
another day
The spring of salvation
has sailed away
The embers of my youth shall
Fade to gray

The roads we trudge to find us perishing
And as we walk on the plains of the open road
We’re guided by the shadow to find the light
Self-sacrificial immolation to pay for every sin we make

And the liturgy
Unfolds its teeth over me
Let the mystery
Slip slowly under

When I sleep, I’ll pray
For retribution
Hold my hand and wait
For this destruction

Follow me
Erase your sin
Retribution
Burning wilds
Will cry thy name
In silence

Follow me
Erase your sin
Retribution
Burning wilds
Will cry thy name
In silence

Taken by neck and tongue
My flesh undone
Chained and corrupted by the promise of the promised land
The eyes of my brethren breathing blood of our misfortune
And as we rise we’re falling
Our fates will manifest

Waken to the antidote
Of my slumber
Shaken till the end of time
On everything that I once knew
Waves collide beneath my skin
Until I’m fallen
Lights go out in unison
To break my way

The Holy Procession
will guide my way
Let me partake on the waters
another day
The spring of salvation
has sailed away
The embers of my youth shall
Fade to gray

The Holy Procession
will guide my way
Let me partake on the waters
another day
The spring of salvation
has sailed away
The embers of my youth shall
Fade to gray

Follow me
Erase your sin
Retribution
Burning wilds
Will cry thy name
In silence

Follow me
Erase your sin
Retribution
Burning wilds
Will cry thy name
In silence
Track Name: The Gravity of Fall
As the lights surround me
I'm losing myself
In altered minds
I'm falling
Falling deeper
Siphoned into dirty water

Echoes of whispers
Brought you here
Now is the time
Wander into horizons

Fallen memories
Plague the earth
When I'm home
Bring me peace

As the lights surround me
I'm losing myself
In altered minds
I'm falling
Falling deeper
Siphoned into dirty water

The seasons have changed
Forsaken entities
Dark skies surround you
Air of uncertainty

What has become of us
Fragments of atrocities
Where do our souls belong
Free from animosity

White veil has fallen
On ravaged lands we shared
The sacrificial offerings
To please black blood

What has become of us
Voyeurs of misery
Where do our souls belong
Save me

Fallen memories
Plague the earth
When I'm home
Bring me peace

Would I be withered on my own
Shameless endeavors
Would I be withered
Would I stay alive?

Would I be withered on me own
Shameless endeavors
Would I be withered
Would I die

Would I stay alive?
Track Name: Crevasse
All my
Innocence
Dwindling
What I knew
Shroud in painted words
Voices unheard

Envisioning a home
Wash us from our sins
I will follow you

Chasing violent winds
Bringing changes
As we wait
for a brighter day

Wonder awaits us
If we love
Double-edged sword
Reveals your destiny

Envisioning a home
Wash us from our sins
I will follow you

Swept under the landslide
Save us from the creeping vines
I will follow you

If I survive
Will you follow me?
If I arise
If I survive
Will you comfort me?
If I arise

Senses debilitating
Crushing from the bone
Slaughter is immanent
As we fall deep into the hole

Madness surrounds you
The pestilence engulfs you in the dark

You better watch out
Nothing will save us now
Scratches on the wall


Faces erode
No memories of tomorrow
Solace in empty promises you broke

The truth of us
Bound by putrid words
The legacy of the blood we spilt

Hapless reprise
Face the blinding light
Wake to the barren lands of the world you left behind

The truth of us
Bound by putrid words
The legacy of the blood we spilt

Beneath the veil of the dying sun
Fog of rage and destruction
Blood moon rises yet again

Sacred spaces infiltrated
We’re fragmented
Suffocate in the fog of the rapture

As streets alight
Face the pillars of fire
Led into the blackened night

Diaspeiro
We fall
As we follow

If I survive
Will you follow me?
If I arise
If I survive
Will you comfort me?
If I arise

Beneath the veil of the dying sun
Fog of rage and destruction
Blood moon rises yet again

Sacred spaces infiltrated
We’re fragmented
Suffocate in the fog of the rapture

As streets alight
Face the pillars of fire
Led into the blackened night

Diaspeiro
We fall
As we follow

Once upon the bodies of the broken
Lies the pages of withered memories we burned
Ripped apart by senseless beating
This is our final call

Once upon the battles that we fronted
Muddled voices lie beneath the sound of destruction
Scattered hearts and scattered being
This is our final call

I stand before my kingdom
Left in ruins
Paid with pure blood

On my knees
I fall
Witnessing the
Grand Destruction
Track Name: Twinleaf
Withered
from the bone
Falling inward
cast the first stone

Born once again
Will it save us
Penitence
Seeds we have sown
on this barren land

Moments passing by
Slowly
All for
the final song

Shadows lingering
Past reprise
Nothing ever stays the same

Born once again
Will it save us
Penitence
Seeds we have sown
on this barren land

Ring the bell of misery
When all is lost yet again
Will we be victorious?
When mountains fall

When will the heart decide there’s more to love
Undoing the verses
Close the chapter
We’re chasing the sun

We’re chasing the sun

When will the heart decide there’s more to love
Undoing the verses
Close the chapter
We’re chasing the sun
We’re chasing the
Track Name: Mirror Lake
Walk on the edge of the ocean
Feel the earth underneath your skin
Resurrection of a land forgotten
A new beginning

What makes it all
(And the air that I breath)
Worth the inhumanity
(As it rushes through me)
Heal us from the core
(An inner stillness)
Let us rest upon the memories
Once and for all
(Once and for all)

Life rises from the ashes
Hear the echo of the mountain’s call
Souls returning to the gates of Eden
Senses returning

What makes it all
(As we go ahead)
Worth the inhumanity
(We redeem ourselves)
Healed from the core
(Conscious creators of reality)
Let us rest upon the memories
Once and for all
(Once and for all)

Single entity
Separated
What was once in our head
One more step to consciousness

Lift the veil
Let us see again
My heart is broken

We walked this earth
We raised and destroyed her

We walked this earth
We raised and destroyed her
Our kingdom has fallen

Unforgivable
