Marcello Velasco One of the best and most versatile Tech Death records I've heard in a long time. The songwriting and especially the synth work is incredible. I fell in love with this record from the first time I've listened to it on Spotify and had to buy it here to support these guys. I hope to hear more from them in the future!

Track Name: Anoxia
I am awake (I am awake) I’m awake
From my slumber
Frozen in the permafrost

I’m a plague (I’m your mistake) A mistake
Death dealer
Bubonic reaper

Dormant for some centuries
Pest Vetr
Plague Winter
A silent reckoning prays on us
It bides its time while we dismiss

Stuck out of time
Escaped from memory
Your slow decline
It draws closer to your time

Glaciers moan
A million corpses to my name
So foolish to think
You could run
Away from your destiny
From me

Humanity’s egregiousness
Siberian graves spark
Eternal rest
The very air we breathe
Is thick with disease
I feel we are too late

Unfeeling, unseeing
The reaper bears no hate
All flesh, will return to the soil
Before Hell’s gate
Track Name: Eternal Ending
A perfect solution
Forever and ever
So beautiful
So malleable
I never want to lose you

Perfect solutions don’t come cheap
Poison lurks in the mouths you feed

Toxic waves
Even in death
No remission
The colours fade
But the stain remains the same

Four-hundred-and-fifty cursed years of degradation
Our children’s children collapse in emancipation
We should have heeded the warnings
Microscopic ligatures dominate your future
You are a slave
A slave
A slave

An immortal enemy
A fitting foe
You've reached the end of the food chain
You’ve got nowhere else to go
Downfall of your own creation
They’ll outlive us all
Monuments to selfishness
This is our downfall
Track Name: Inertia Haze
Synthetic sickness within

In the water
In your blood 

Stuck in the pores of your skin 

Undying 

Uncompromising 

This planet’s patience wears thin 



In arrogance never ending 

There is a mantra contradicting, condescending, lies

Our toiling feels so futile as jet engines set ablaze the skies



Inertia haze



When the rain turns black

The earth, the sky, the sea
Start taking back 



There is no other real choice 

But to sink



Can’t run away

Find solace in your languor

Your lungs fill up 



No way
Can’t run away
Obsessed with material gain 



We can’t breathe 

We’re running out of time 

City after city where you can’t see the sky 

Richer minds rot with obsession for expansion 

Remove the rose tinted lense

Your world is going to end
Track Name: All Flesh
Wasting time is a waste of life 

Defined by enemies

Perfection unattainable 

Begging for more 

Settling for less 

Face to the cold earth 

Hooked on nostalgia 

What is left?
Nothing 

What is left to say

Caught in age 
Where everything’s the same

Culture’s blurred



Time passes by as you wait for your chance

But I’m stuck here, a narcissist entranced



I’m terrified of living

I’m waiting here to die 

I can’t wait to lie with the worms


What drives me, is futility 

What drives me, is banality 

I might as well make use of this farcical reality



All flesh
Returns to the soil
Track Name: Salvation
All flesh returns to the soil
All marrow returns to the sea
All journeys a split second in time
All life a grain of sand at your feet

Terror of existence is ablaze under my skin
How do I fit it all in
How do I break from the mentality I find myself in?

Meaning is only what you apply to everything
No grand plan need burden your path
Don’t follow in their footsteps
The tide will wash them all away

Unburdened by a social timeframe
Take and give only what you need
Strip away the societal pressure
With no destiny, leave your soul to feed

All flesh returns to the soil
All marrow returns to the sea
All journeys a split second in time
All life a grain of sand at your feet

I found purpose
In nothingness
It keeps me safe
From the jaws of the abyss

Addicted to the
Hopelessness
Do you accept your fate
In this hell
Scrape yourself
From the bottom of the barrel
Disregard those who don’t understand

Break from the cycle
Of the generations
You are yours alone
Forget their faces cos you’re never coming home

Broken bodies
Filled the void
With walls
And chances missed

You’re never coming home

All Flesh
Is Grass
All flesh
Returns to the soil
Track Name: Spirare
As I considered the words in front of me
I slowly began to make my way out of the hole I had found myself in

Death’s inevitability still came as a comfort
But life didn’t feel so hopeless

I no longer felt like I needed to follow any particular path
The world around me felt just the same
And I wasn’t yet at peace with that

The only motivation I felt anymore was to fight what I saw in front of me
I saw those at the bottom of the ladder
And I saw those at the top
The rungs in the middle were missing
And I could see that its integrity was failing

I saw an oncoming storm
Track Name: The Dreich
Dissociate yourself
It’s not your fault


Exhausted, huddled masses 

Are driven to the ground 

Stressed, their minds are static 

Beneath the moon they’ll make no sound 



A life less ordinary
A life worth more, worth sharing

A lifeless husk 

No empathy, no lust 

Another light goes out 



Your body shows your mind’s own truth 

Beneath your feet the demons grew



Fingernails claw at some dignity

But it’s pulled away at last 
It’s pulled away at last

They blamed the people
On their knees
For the children drowned upon the beach
Unwelcome lands, the last thing that they saw
Disbelief

I can’t help but question why
We let it get this bad
Pawns beneath an unseen hand

Slowly murdered
Worn down to dust within our homes
Undiscovered
There’s no way out
No way to go

Lights out
Night’s shroud
A shadow falls
Across the world

Hope is crushed beneath the tracks
Nothing you can do - relax
It’s not your fault

Die slow
Track Name: Silent Spring
Premonition
Call out with fear
No bustle from the hedgerow
Across the water
A prophecy grows
Real world deathtraps
An invisible slaughterhouse

Cognitive dissonance
Bodies burst, overflow with pus and dirt

When the subsidies subsided
The land had changed with the rising tide
Population misguided
Sleepwalking with imminent biocide

Thick clouds for miles and miles
Air unfit to breathe
A nation’s shame foregone conclusion
We face the same fate

With perfect clarity, we’ll hear the final coin drop

It was us against the world
We were on the wrong side
From on high the sirens ring
The only thing you’ll hear
In this silent spring

Pesticide overkill
A cursed cure
A fog you cannot see through
Pain you can’t hope to endure

Now you know how it feels
To be knifed in the back
When we bend nature
The world will bend back

Injustice that you seek to reap
Lies fester in your mouth
Grow roots between your teeth
Your soul face down
Six feet beneath
Feed the earth so starved it wants only what you bleed

Victims of an industry
Born and bred for you
A life destroying dynasty
Nothing left to sell nothing left to lose

You’ve seen the damage done
The pain that lies in wait that’s still come
The skies don’t lie, the evil will come
The moon will rise, crimson and full
Track Name: Blood Moon
Cold earth 



As I gather my thoughts

I’m met with spectres of a time gone by 

Tendrils grow from blasted windows 

A sight for my weary, bloodshot eyes



Spoiled for choice for reasons why

No human scourge the planet thrives 

I take a closer look inside 
No sign of struggle 

A bloodless war fought in our minds



Information overload 

A fractured state 

We ignored the silence 

From the birdcage 



We all wanted a simpler existence 

Greed of the elders made for slaves of the infants

Time passed by

The flames grew high



You had everything you needed

Everything that you could ever want 

You lost your way 

You lost your way

It’s over
The prophecy is fulfilled
Let us bath once more
In the crimson dark
Around us and within us
Give yourself over to the earth
You are whole once more
