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.

The Descent 06:48
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

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

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

Untergang 07:23
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.

The Hurt 05:48
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

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
