I.) TRANSCENDING THE THRESHOLD:
Track one works very well as an introduction to the album.
Haunting atmosphere and low rumbles begin to fill the air with
a wonderous fear.It sounds like some dark entity is breathing down
the back of your neck.Metallic knocking and other strange sounds
send chills up and down your spine.Like walking down a dark and very
old hallway not knowing what awaits you.The urge of finding out pushes
you further down the spiraling halls of resonance and void emptiness.
II.) SHROUD OF SCARS:
Roaring winds like a throbbing pulse increase suspicion and anxiety.
It's that feeling you get when finding yourslef face to face with inhuman
entity.Like gazing upon a horrid monster in the flesh.Pity strikes the heart
shrouding it with scars and woe.A few words are spoken in strange distorted
vocals.The mind carrys them and trancends it's terror into a mirrior to of self
reflection.Loathing and despondent.Like looking into oneself as all the inner
scars of an entire lifetime surface at once before tearing eyes.Blackend ambience
only continous.Pouring out of the void.
III.) CUTTING THE VESSEL:
Track three strikes like vertigo warping the mind like looking through dizzy eyes.
The sounds of voices and grinding rusting saws flood the room.This is like a waking
nightmare on the surgery table when the drugs have worn off.Letting you feel every
moment of torture beyond what you can possibly imagine.Hearing your bones grinding
and scalpals cuting away like a rabid ravaging animal eating you alive starting with the
stomach first.Spilling your entrails across the cold sterile floor.Spoken word vocals
make me imagine a doctor using my body as a science project.Or maybe for instruction
to teach other demented souls where to cut.Torture ambient.
IV.) THE RITE OF OSSILEGIUM:
This starts off like an old generator in a run down basement.So old the pipes rattle
as it works causing one to imagine that they are hearing hissing voices.The sound
of a primitive fear that causes the hairs on the back off your neck to stand up.Crawling
black ambience slithers and rushes behind you.A distorted voice like that of a wraith
in black utters curses in a daemonic tongue to beckon your demise.
V.) BLACKENED SKELETAL REMAINS:
The final track starts off as the hardest and loudest thus far.Faint sounds of orchestral
strings are heard for a short moment beforet blasts of rumbling distortion and harsh
static noise take over blackening out any beauty.Distorted pitch black death industrial
vocals.Metallic scrapes and rattling like the opening of doors that have long been rusted.
Once you pry them open you are only to find the charred blackened skeletal remains of a
past filled with sinister and hidden secrets.Secrets of this dark and long forgotten place.
But I get a sense these doors were locked and bolted for a reason.Something or someone
wanted to keep it that way and YOU woke it up.Lock yourself in these dark chambers
and suffer the fate you have brought upon yourself.
Dark and mysterious blackened ambient.If your into artists like
Abandoned Asylum or Steel Hook Prosthesis then this is for you:
