Arthur Henden It's heavy, it's brutal, and it's utterly beautiful. It'll transport you to another plane of reality and crush you under the immensity of its riff. Favorite track: Simurgh.

Track Name: Simurgh

king of the birds, sign of inspiration
that suggests the truth to us
composition of the transience
servant of the finiteness
we do not recognize him as the constant screaming in ourselves
fear is the forger of lies

reborn from ashes
immortality that surrounds him
circling above us, but unnoticed
tree of saene, from where he spreads the arbitrariness
rain and wind, the powers that he imposes on us

we who want to subdue nature are cursed
as long as the king wheels, we will strive for power and wealth
when the king is doomed, our fate will dry up in misery
Track Name: Psychomachia

who knows what lead to the turn
alteration of priorities occurs
changes reviving the mind
grounded foundation of regulated commonality rives
revealing the other side

meaningful now, yet irrational

potency through this bloodletting

earth, you are just a platform now
floating in another liturgy

enduring mountains, peaking over mind's barriers
endless woodlands embracing the soul
carried away by flowing rivers
far away from the cult of scoring

halos are fading
darkness builds a boundles vault
dimmed light of a pharos sedately leads the way
gaining existence

the twilight zone is gone
as is the celebrated human crush
coexistence, calm, pacified
monumental entities enduring from the beginning abide
persistent companions apart from sordid aspirations
