Matthew Rukgaber Incredible progressive technical death. There are Gojira and djent aspects (like track 4), but with the sci-fi aspects, melodies, and thrash aspects it reminds me a bit of Pestilence. But mostly it is mind-exploding Gorguts-esque death metal of the most superb sort. Pretty remarkable. Favorite track: Singularity I - Humanity.

Track Name: Null (Intro)
Everything begins with a simple idea
A basic concept
Life's complexity comes from the creative organization
Of these fundamental elements
Building fractalline structures
Similar to the human body, the universe
And the world we know
But what of the ones we don't?
Track Name: From Hunted To Hunter
Floating in a sea of disparity
Swimming frantic
A beast in his wake
Images of carnage block his vision
A cloudy shadow of death approaches from beneath

I reach deep within
Finding that part of me
That wants it most
Constant struggle

Ambushed in the City of Trees
We face our foe as prey
Overwhelmed but no one trembles
Fear is not at home here

Trust everyone
Rely on no one
Searching for a piece of mind
Forgetting those left behind

Running not in fear
But the will to live
A collection
An obsession

Together we will overcome the darkness
No place to call home
Together we stand alone
Nowhere to run or hide yet we try

Our steady hands grasp weapons from the land
And break everything we mean them to
We teach the people of Hela to grow
From hunted to hunter

Running not in fear
But the will to live

Together we will overcome the darkness
No place to call home
Together we stand alone
Nowhere to run or hide yet we try
Track Name: Nucleus of Domination
Once a visionary utopia
Brought to ruins for greed
Amidst the rubble like zombies
Suffering masses

We trace the cerebral highway of Fantoche to it's source
The Nucleus of Domination
Ending an era of
Telepathic slavery
Slavery

Mental captors of their oppressors
Tools used for havoc
Weak minds
Of the many overthrown
By the wicked prosperous few
By the wicked prosperous few

We trace the cerebral highway of Fantoche to it's source
The Nucleus of Domination
Ending an era of
Telepathic slavery
Slavery

Mental captors of their oppressors
Tools used for havoc
Demolishing your world
With the hands of a puppet
For a manufactured concept of conquest
For a superior existence
Superior existence

Mental captors of their oppressors
Tools used for havoc
Weak minds
Of the many overthrown
Track Name: Flawless Design
Denied the simple pleasures of life
For the flawless design
A never-ending sacrifice
Mantik is a state of mind

Out into the great wide open
Another day, another life
Black and white, efficient rife
Wasted words, seldom spoken

Put two and two together
Don't fix what isn't broken
Curves and straight lines
Can never be combined

Cold and clinical
To be most effectual
For the art of symmetry
Purpose there is none
For beauty and grace
Words there are none
There are none

Blinkered and blindfolded by Mantik
Ruler straight and black and white
Productivity is the key
To what you want to be

Denied the simple pleasures of life
For the flawless design
A never-ending sacrifice
Mantik is a state of mind
Track Name: Singularity I - Humanity
This academia of Alvitur
Saturated with polymath savants
Contemplating omniscience
Conjuring cognition

Impending absolute potential
Faith is obsolete
When humanity and divinity collide
We are the prime movers

Chorus:
Forget your pantomath path to ascension
Your incompletion will be your downfall
Together, surpassing every feat we aspired to apart
I am your anti-spirit, your missing link

Completion, ascension, creation anew

Coming into being, a summation of the parts
Dissolving your ego in the spirit
The noble fight, chaff strewn aside
Grinding gears, paving a harmonic path

This omnipotent entity's birth
Brings an age of incomprehensible ability
Sacrifice all ambition and let it collapse
Creation anew

A unified spirit in search of another
Harmonious intent, to expand and scale
A natural growth, exponential and evolutionary
Interconnected as one, a soul, our system

Suggested by religions
Perceived by the chosen
An immutable source, a multi-dimensional union
Uniform, together as one

The unbounded omnicell
Godlike in its essence
With the naiveté of a child
A singularity of awakening
A singularity of rebirth

And the pantomaths emerge
Incomplete again, forever
Track Name: Singularity II - Divinity
A new creation
Defining divinity
A perfect design
Manufactured infinity

Complex beings, every one
In their very simplicity
The universe, experiencing itself
Crafting an end, seeking a beginning

Chorus:
A unified spirit in search of another
Harmonious intent, to expand and scale
A natural growth, exponential and evolutionary
Interconnected as one, a soul, our system

Spinning creativity from nothing
Spiralling out on a Mobius path
Bonding together in harmonious affinity
Randomness combining, creating each cycle anew

Atoms and souls and beings combine
Seeking new forms
Seeking new minds
Forming unknown elements, why?
To break the mold
In space and time

Knowing not the whys and wherefores
Following nature, obeying subliminal orders

Chorus:
A unified spirit in search of another
Harmonious intent, to expand and scale
A natural growth, exponential and evolutionary
Interconnected as one, a soul, our system

A singularity of awakening
A singularity of rebirth
Instinct, tapping into the great unknown

And the pantomaths are aware
Complete, forever
And the pantomaths are aware
Complete, again, forever
Track Name: Empyreal Genesis
Expanding, one mind
Physical realm in control
No more New Worlds
No matter left to explore
Birthing desires

Birthing desires
Of the purest form
Pursuing intention
In this transparent realm

Start an empyreal genesis
For the minds to take flight
An exodus into the unknown
Escape into the night

Stronger and bigger and higher than all
Fragile bonds between atoms, finally they fall
A search for the truth, salvation, immortality
Leave the body behind, the shackling enemy

Out into the darkness
Screaming out into the night
Sparks from the creator
Speeding out, out into the light

As gods we have risen
As gods we sculpt
The new Illuminati
Weaving patterns from light

Expanding, one mind
A digital eden takes hold
Infinity folding back on itself
Uncharted dimensions to explore

Start an empyreal genesis
For the minds to take flight
An exodus into the unknown
Escape into the night

Stronger and bigger and higher than all
Fragile bonds between atoms, finally they fall
Empyreal Genesis

As gods we have risen
As gods we sculpt
The new Illuminati
Weaving patterns from light

Expanding, one mind
A digital eden has taken hold
Infinity has folded back on itself
Newfound dimensions being explored
Being explored
Track Name: Digital Eden
You think you are self-aware
Peering inward, you think you can tell
Looking out and all around
Measuring and naming whatever is found

I look down at your pixelated reality
With the touch of a lever I watch your heads sever
A flick of the wrist and there's another hell

I am your god
I am your enemy
I control your every move
I thrive on infamy

I am your god
In your Digital Eden, me
Imprisoned or thrown out
At the touch of a key

Tweaking the constants
I change the world order
You know not the past
Just a hazier future

Your reality is confined to what you see
My power over everything
Like mice in a maze
You are but my orders
Gazing through the haze
Seeking the end

Your reality is confined to what you see
My power over everything
You are but my orders
Seeking the end

Hacking into your mind
Your central processing unit

Twist. Run. Kill.
Believe in me and do as I will
Run. Scream. Burn.
I gather results and scorn what you've learned
Eternal peace
I create the concept then leave you bereft
Find absolution
A new line of code and you've nowhere to turn

Oppressive perfection
Holding creations feed your every need
Whisper-thin veils
You look deep enough and you lose what I give
Crafting your cell
A perfect prison
Your will grows weak, you submit to me

I look down at your pixelated reality
No reason to leave, though you hold the key

I am your god
I am your enemy
I control your every move
I thrive on infamy

I am your god
In your Digital Eden, me
Imprisoned or thrown out
At the touch of a key
Track Name: Symbiotic Prophet
Walking with the gods
Our purpose is clear
We serve what we see
Empowering those who walk in the light

It’s not the faith
But the desire we’ve lost
To worship anyone but ourselves

Enlightenment will bring us closer to immortality
Your brain is a structure
The mind is immortal
The organic death of the half-conscious

Make room for new life
Rebirth of a disciple

Your brain is a structure
The mind is immortal
Infinite survival

I will be your symbiotic prophet
To walk beside and not behind
Through a better understanding of the universe dynamic

Procuring pleasure
Avoiding pain
Athanatos is the land of the gods
Athanatos is the land of the gods

It’s not the faith
But the desire we’ve lost
To worship anyone but ourselves
Infinite survival

I will be your symbiotic prophet
To walk beside and not behind
Through a better understanding of the universe dynamic

Your brain is a structure
The mind is immortal
Your brain is a structure
The mind is immortal
Track Name: Evolution Absolute
A world of molten clay
Shape-shifting, unlimited
Descend to the quantum level
Try to grasp, to know, to feel

Paranoid pandemonium
On an uninhabitable plane of existence
A universe of inconsistency
Nothing remains unchanged
Nothing remains the same

And then it's gone forever
Obsolete and archaic
Our old ways are gone
The new world has come

Build yourself on nothing
Our surroundings evolve within us
A foundation based on a void
Survival through science

Beliefs are all you rely on
Resilient to nature
Absolute truths
You have none x3

In a world with no certainty
Evolve to survive
Adapt, recreate, contrive
The only way to survive

Resilient, move with the wind, shift with the weather
I delve deep within
Into my self, my mind and the heavens
A heathen spirit

The world around met,
Calm and centered I am

And then it's gone forever
Obsolete and archaic
Our old ways are lost
The new world has come

I am evolution absolute
Track Name: DeEvolution
In this age of decay
Herds blinded by the shroud of the elite
Chanting “ignorance is bliss”
Dig deeper, your indifference for this

Confines us to rot

The dawn of intellect is long gone, now
I think, therefore I am
Forging ahead into a dismal dawn
Futility, dogma and idiocy

De-evolution is the new generation
De-evolution is our time
A negative acceleration from that we’ve been yearning
De-evolution is our crime

A ship to Mars, we must build
Set forth and seed the system
Ark-ships travelling through light and time
To encompass the galaxies

Infinite leaps of infinite minds
Into the nanosphere
Moving worlds, moving ideas
A future we need to draw near

Minds striving to rise from the filth
Getting drawn down by fear
Religious, military, pecuniary force
Beating down, taking over, backwards we devolve

De-evolution is the new generation
De-evolution is our time
A negative acceleration from that we’ve been yearning
De-evolution is our crime
