Orlag Honestly, this album is a steal. Its a really well put together album, amazing tracks, and its so cheap. This is the type of band that only cares about producing amazing music, and want people to listen to it, which is why its so cheap (Or so Im guessing). Thanks a lot! Favorite track: Incarnadine.

A fuzzy doom transliteration of some kind of weird proto-sorcerer's field notebook digging deep into the cosmology and geography of the self. Tons of thick, catchy riffs and non-obvious, linear arrangements.

Track Name: Incarnadine
Engraved by circling creatures
Ground gives way to stone
Ghostly unseen tethers
Latched to withered bones

Dust to ash
Ash to flame

Blood stars, ivory sky
Lost words, ancient rites
Graves quake, you rise
Track Name: Eau de Nil
Pallid, stark, and thin
Draped in white

Confusion in your eyes
A glow within your skin

Returning to this world you knew
You wonder why I've brought you

A chasm splits open
The strangest veiled wisdom pours forth

Reluctantly revealing the signs
Shouting things I can't understand

Yet to comprehend
Mysteries of the dead
Track Name: Glaucous
Mountain incantations
Lakes fuse into glass
Trees transformed to iron

From coiled fog
And fevered brain
The land erupts and spills
Whole into the blaze

Built to burn

Destroy the altar
And begin again
Over and then over

Compose the demons
Primed to drink the will
Over and then over
Endlessly bound

Sentinel, summoned to Earth
Syzygy, the time has arrived
Evoke the keeper

All paths, they end in

Luminosity from immortal planes
A spectrum yet unnamed shrouds the oracle
Track Name: Meline
Dead light fools you with lies
Old minds harbor gold

Terror and sulphur and smoke
Fire and molten dark art

Shadows command you alone
Phantoms surrounding your ghost
Track Name: Porphyrous
Unweaving world
The hex, the sword, the bell
Rings of doom, frigid wasteland wind
Violet mist, she will be here soon

An end will be here soon
Life, turned to salt and clay
Track Name: Thulian
Shards in a vast crystal pattern
Sketching the edge helps confirm the form

Fathom beasts
Inside the void, behind the sun

Boiling ground, poison sky
Encouraging an inward turn
Forbidden tomes, wild mind
Envisioning infinitude
Track Name: Smaragdine
A spiral curse erases light
A booming voice speaks cryptic lines

It's leaving you nothing left
All that you've known is gone
A vortex of jade appears
Time is entombed in stone

Now fly free
No boundary

Cloaked in cosmos
Riding nightmares
Cloaked in cosmos
A trail of daydreams
Track Name: Nasturtium
Realms beyond thought, patterns of self erode
The sea becomes lead, clouds becomes thick and slow

Chaos kings ruling recklessly at the center of the mind
Track Name: Sable
With rose-ringed onyx feral eyes
Calculating mage
All natural fear

Puzzles that have flummoxed from birth
All is art

Illusions shown in cauldron steam
And arcane symbols
That represent imagined corporeality
Track Name: Celeste
Escaping from the blue infernal gloom
Disguised by primal laws masking the way

Deciding on the tone
Of this vibrant dream
