Poesy Rider Du bon death aussi puissant que oppressant avec des grattes terribles et des voix à la Opeth... Encore ! Favorite track: Sepulchre.

flightoficarus (Metal Trenches) Before I even noticed the Alkaloid connection, I was already drawing some sonic parallels to that project.  This is progressive death metal with a similar pacing and guitar approach (like those weird harmonic solos).  Ozz also lists Opeth among the influences for this album, which seems to come through the most on "Dust".  Expect plenty technical hooks and dark atmosphere for days. This is a solid release that makes me hungry for a full length.

Rick Thatcher As brutal as it is technical. You won't find many more skilled or more articulate players out there. Paul is massively underrated and a terrific guy to boot. Check out his discography.

Carcerem 04:56
In the throes of blissful perdition I rise to meet the enemies of my soul Soon they will know the power of spirit And fire will become the knowledge of all Calamitous end to a vile beginning Undeserving of peace Bound by the hatred of Rot Seek the means to the end But never experience the journey Collapsing infinity Unholy finality Anguish and hatred Shame in understanding Death, On a stone Down into the chambers Of Madness and drought Death, unholy seat On their throne I make this purgatory A vision of death On a stone
Sepulchre 03:26
Stale Memories The taste of bitterness Old blight The mask of a wraith Prestigious, Now nothing Terrible howling Of shambling souls Lost in sepulchres Lost in the grove Haunted memories Drifting, endlessly Terrible howling Of crackling bones Lost in submission Lost in the grove Death on a stone
Entropy 03:21
You should have let me burn In the fires of Entropy Dust Can not be what is left Of an ever flowing soul Slave in his tomb In the temple of Incarceration There is no Peace No Sanctuary No Respite In this Damning So that all may be swallowed As it once was To Beautiful Exquisite Entropy ~ You should have left me dead Under the cursed Sun Bleak, Anvil of eternity Corrupting Strife A Finished Legend Crackling fire Burning Eternally To NOTHING
Dust 05:39
Singularly honest Drifting, between Lost realms Dark days Dust Dust Let us all embrace you In conscious mind Forever Churning ~ Singularly honest Waiting, unseen Dark Realms, Lost Years, Dust Dust Let the fall take you, Universal Mind At one with Nothing At one with All AT ONE WITH ALL


This small collection of songs was put together out of a pure love of extreme music.

I started this e.p for myself so I could overcome some hardships in my life; and move on from them. However, I quickly realized it really is for everyone who is going through pain, and who needs reminding of their own personal strength.

This short expression of catharsis is for you.
