Snyjxr Man, I've been blown away by the skill ristridi shows on his youtube channel, but it was only after listening to this debut that I really think we have a very promising musician in the making! What's most impressive about this record is how much personality it packs. Nothing I've heard sounds like this. The vibe I get from this record is similar to the vibe I got from Slugdge's Esoteric Malacology, regarding the uniqueness of the sound signature! Very well done!! Favorite track: The Hurt.

His first album of OMEGA POINT, called “The Descent”, has a very dark tone.

The soon to be released follow up album "Isolation" will progress from that dark tone into a more melodic and progressive direction.

Track Name: The Descent
entranced in tribal cults
is man - a blinkered child
his anchored soul denies
the doubled helixed truth

the roots run deep and long
and nurture still our breed
like fungal bloom upon
mycelium obscured

this bannered pageantry
this pride in time and place
invented histories
convincing you to be
not merely a result
of senseless providence
a sliver of a thread
a web that no one weaves

let slip thy pride
dress in the rags of time

the roots run deep and long
and nurture still our breed
like fungal bloom upon
mycelium obscured

let slip thy pride
dress in the rags of time

you're nothing but the froth
upon the tide of life
Track Name: At Omega Point
Mysterium tremendum
Obfuscating clarity
Old demonic dread

It blots out the sky
A vanishing void
And all that is solid
Melts into air
The final cathedral
A broken visage
Bare ruined choirs
Rime-frosted mortar
The rising silence
Of entropy
A final null

See yourself in the mirror of death

At Omega Point
Where nothing is revealed
In majesty and might
The ladder cast aside
The sum of every end

All the labours of the ages
All the devotion
All the inspiration
All the noonday brightness of human genius
Are destined to extinction in the vast death of the solar system
The whole temple of Man's achievement must inevitably be buried
Beneath the debris of a universe in ruins
Track Name: The Stones And The Water
The wolf is standing
On the precipice
How far that little step seems now

Balanced above the deep abyss
She steps on air
Between the river stones
In the pockets of her coat
The water slips
And fills the gaps
Like lovers long apart
That rushing sink onto
A muddy bed and dark
In fatal last embrace

The stones were weapons of the wolf
Arrayed against herself
When her teeth had failed
Fallen out
One And All
In her madness

Although she could have swum
She held her limbs petrified
Until the light went out
Track Name: Untergang
Schlaflose Nacht
Ein Blitz erscheint
Der Atem stockt
Die Arm vereint

Ein seichter Sonnenuntergang
Ein Gang hinfort
Welch‘ Schuld erwartet dich
Und doch kein Gott.

Das Licht verlässt die Tor‘
Dem Griff entzweit
Der Last die Arme hingereicht
Und viel erreicht.

Die Dunkelheit schlägt über
Der lange Weg und graue Pfad
Hüllt sich bald in Schweigen

Der Herzschlag lässt das Leben heil
Und Blut rinnt in der Dunkelheit
Wie sieht die Welt meinen Untergang
Den Abstand und die Leere.
Track Name: The Hurt
There are some who never fit
In these bright and airy rooms
Meagre flowers, sparse of leaf
Who have grown from bitter root

In a dried up,
Dusty corner
Where nobody ever goes

Like the garbage
Wilted flowers
Somewhere hidden out of sight

A mound of broken toys
Experiments that went awry
The shunned they turn their faces
From the judgement of the gaze

Backyard garden of the hurt
Twisted, bent, a stunted growth
Seeds tossed aside

Oh nevermind the sun
Nevermind the hurt

Oh well whatever, nevermind

In a dried up,
Dusty corner
Where nobody ever goes
Like the garbage
Wilted flowers
Somewhere hidden out of sight
Track Name: Alles Wird Still
Ich sterbe nur
Weil es keinen anderen Weg mehr gibt

Ich presse das müde Blut
Durch meine verwahrlosten Adern
Wo es erhärten wird
In einem gefrorenen Teil von mir

Und wenn die Sonne nicht mehr hebt,
die Trauer im Herz versiegt
Eisig im eigenen Zweifel watend
In das leere Ende des Seins

Doch du siehst mich nicht
Die Trauer schützt
Alles wird still

Du spürst mich nicht
Die Trauer brennt
Alles wird still

Ich muss es tun
Weil ich nicht bleiben kann
Die Sehnsucht ruft ins Dunkel

Und wenn der Nebel bricht
Der Grund im Sinn zerbricht F
röstelnd hebst du die Lider
Und blickst erwartend ins Licht
