Dann 'the djentle giant' Just a 25 minutes song, but what a song. Death metal and progressive in a single package. Aerial atmosphères, bars and bars of violent riffs that clash with redemption bits. Hummmmm, that's great metal!

Track Name: Kaleidoscopes
Names in dust to grounded stones
Faces imprinted nowhere now
The ache, the haunting scent of life
Beat the sodden earth with fists for
The good it will not do below
Void of all, lo salvation’s price

Screaming. Unlife. Unleashed. Without.

Anguish born from vacancy
Desiccant winds howl through the barren lots
Redemption to be found in
Corrupted eyes lining crumbling tombs
Maelstrom fury breaks the world
As the souls within will twist across the time
Life’s finale’s throbbing dance
Vistas writhe in black apocalypse
Falling from the heights unknown
Plummeting from the teeth of an ending world
Close your eyes and scream into
The belly of oblivion
High above the world’s demise
The sky’s malicious exaltation
Cavorts through scorchéd summits and
Conducts the world in desolation
Second dawn
Gives way to more
Impossible
Open eyes once more
Clarity obscured before
The dancing glimmer of tunnel’s dwindling end
Dims into infinity
Hold steady between these eyes of mine

Synaptic collapse
The neurons burn
Grey matter dissolved
Yet everything is stitched alive
No desire to see
Think, feel or taste
Never atrophied
The plight of one ignored
Return thoughts to hope
Where hope did end
Liquid death again
Back into Poseidon’s arms
Waterlogged graves
Unaligned now
Rise from the depths

Through the ages holding silent
Watch as humankind performs its best to end
The great creators foresaw eternity
Dancing in their perfect cosmos
Yet in the end they raised their arms
And tore themselves apart
--
A mockery of their greatness
In one fell swoop unthinking progeny
Of hubristic minds and shallow lives
The mortal spine of creation
Splintered in their hands, so abhorrent
They never stopped to hear the laughing skies


The mortal trepidation
Of falling too far short
Could never meet the sorrows
Of living far beyond
Whisper in the final days
To try to reach the dying race
Never heard by those whose lives
Shall be the last of those in line
The ghost of one last lesson learned
Shall never be among them
--
Wander through the desolate
Fields in isolation
The only spectre of the greatest
Moment in their history
In reflection, commune with none
A barren world without a care
The earth lives out its lonely life
Its sole inhabitant breathing deep
The dust that lines the empty roads
And the ash that’s falling from the skies

Feel the blood boil
Blistering skin
Watch as the oceans
Soar into the sky
Surface ripped apart
All is liquefied
--
Flesh is torn from mind
Ridden of the shell
Essence wanders free
Witness Terra mors
--
Celestial Ordination

Screaming. Unlife. Released. Within.

The atmosphere disintegrates
And that which we could never conquer
Comes crashing to its knees
Conflagration of the past
The remnants are consumed
The source of all our livelihoods
Unending in its hunger
The legacy of our great race
Now not a speck to mar the stars
--
A hundred thousand different lights
Will tell the stories and
Dance eternal through the dark
To weave the magic of the stars
The universe their tapestry
--
Lifeless entities will sing
Through luminous displays
Kaleidoscopes of colour now
Become a new dimension
Resign into a new suffusion
The tapestry complete
