liam joyce This is one awesome album but Symbiotic prophet is a stone cold classic. Chunky as fuck. Favorite track: Symbiotic Prophet.

MindOverFour 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.

Null (Intro) 01:04
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?

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

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

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

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
6.
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

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

Digital Eden 05:00
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

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

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

DeEvolution 04:12
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

about

Polymath Theory is a concept album that is a “commentary on humankind’s evolution from basic beings subject to the whims of their universe, to intergalactic explorers and energistic entities in search of purpose - while touching upon our present state in the final trek - DeEvolution.”
