1. Outer Veil (5:25)
"Come in station command. This is Alpha X-1. We are approaching the event horizon. Engines are not responding. Requesting emergency procedures. Repeat. Requesting emergency procedures."

Frequency of emergency warnings
Breaking update signals
Error in discovery by man

Bizarre radiation uncovers the ghosts in the sand
Start the descent into the frontier

Movement and colours
Blurred by unsettled debris
Turbulent first contact

Shimmering field of galactic dust
Full spectrum of light pulsing on the surface

In the heart
Beating at the end of the shadowy veins

Spills out over the perforated subterrene
Then: a blast

E'rhis Kfa-ne
E'fel Ranas
Krah phrul manus
Ne phral

Sovereign of the Land substantiates
The rhythm of the ground beneath their feet

"Be without fear as you are welcomed guests.
The first of your kind to visit here.
Allow me to show you what you have travelled so far to behold."
2. Autochton (4:57)
Primal irises flicker
Squamous pale bodies
Move unanimously
Limbs seeming to float
Vortices undulate

Attention diverted
Moments linger in space
Encapsulated death placenta
Cilia quiver along every surface

Each cell is alone
Each brain is a whole
Nerves serve the system
Mind is on fire


To be shewn collective efficiency
The reward for the inquisitive
Impossible physiology
Sympathetic reptillian apiary


The solar rays of our universe strangely absent
Far-away towers emit telepathic sight
Reality oscillating
Dimensional vibrations

Stand before the transparent shield
Know the words
Say the words
And enter
3. Hypgnosis (4:49)
Reveal the many Keys

Called to The Center
Instruments of horror
Vestigial flesh and bone
Eternally devoured


Perception I receive
Eternity is The Key
Bred to deceive

Beneath the Harvest Moons
Agonizing doubt crawls forth
Stench of words not uttered
Gestures without meaning

Iconic illustrae without stars
Bending the Orb of Qosmos

Honored Ones
Bathed in light
Release the Self

Chosen Ones
Saved by right
Lift your crowns
So naive...

Survival in the cracks of existence
Clandestine compulsion to raven
The Key must open The Gate
In all time, in all places

4. Collector of Memories (3:33)
I feel alive in this Hell
Beneath my feet
The scarred faces
Remember nothing

The stomachs begin to swell
The Harvest Feast
Forced to see

Somnium et dimittam metus

Dead memory

Failed to be bound by the science of Earth
The multiverse has other methods
It is not cruel for brutality's sake
Only watching with bemused interest

Witness the transformation
Many to one

Birthed from The Nameless Mist
Begat of an ageless nether
Shimmering globes beyond Time
Travel and touch untethered

Give your mind to The Opener of The Way!
5. The Hand, the Eye, the Tongue, the Heart (2:57)
The walls painted so vermillion
Customs splattered all about
Decadent interior, velvet seats
Appearances not as they seem

A sacrifice made willingly
The taste made all the sweeter
Dragged across salient streams of skewers
Brought before the butcher's blades

The Hand

Cut deep
Cut deep
Cut to the bone

The Eye

Cut deep
Cut deep
Cut to the bone

Face down waiting for the tissue to be spread
Starting with the hands, working slowly towards the head
Gouging out the eyes so further torment can't be seen
Removal of the tongue prevents the irritating screams

No more than seconds but aeons from the start
The final grim performance: extraction of the heart
Favorite parts obtained the body piled on gore
Observing all the carnage from a new, exotic form

The Tongue
6. Masquerade in Eminence (4:30)
Under the skin and under the breath
The mask of infinite inchoate expression
Peel away a thousand aeons hidden
Twisted up in strands of the great epoch

Voice of the madness in darkness
Bleating sheep upon the doorstep
Mother-and-Father of chaotic genesis
Sends them away

Across the lithic wastes
Boiling rivers
Bending saplings
Terror echoes



The door will sway
The Elder Sign
Lost the way
The blackened vines

Blood paid with blood
Eater of souls

Master of the void
Reveals his offering

Unlimited sight
Blind to its purpose

Eldritch incantations
Amplify to manifest
7. Vertex I: The Gate (2:50)
8. Vertex II: The Key (4:37)
Be calm
Be solace
Be our shepherd
Be the cure of our disease

I am rage
I am sadness
Your executioner
I am the one who holds the Key

Release us
From bondage
Your servants
We beg on bloodied hands and knees

My possessions
My playthings
My pleasure is your slavery

Feed us
Your answers
The ones who bear your weight

Like vermin
Like locusts
You are the objects of my hate

In your strength
In your power
Hold the wicked at the Gate

You are vagrants
You have trespassed
The astral bond I terminate

Fallen kings
Lying priests
Ancient dreams

Glacial cities
Sunken lairs
Unknown realms

Poison tomes
Abject rituals
Foolish worship
9. Absention (6:05)
Drifting outer reaches
Memory returns



Passing through the hole

Pale fingers on a luminous vestige
Recorded voyage into chtonian domain
Final warning for endangered posterity
Only cerebral Utopian spasms displayed

The prison

Precipace of truth
Spawning a star

Waking from their trance
Clinging to a realm they must concede

Portal within
Elemental provenance
Alpha, Omega, Zero
Negative matter

Thoughts of the insane
Coffin rests in space
Relic buried away
Precious levels fade
Construct slowly cracks
Walls silently weep
The Hand of Doom starts to pull
No longer in control
4 bars

Final view
What is true?

"I somehow managed to survive contact with a black hole. My team members are missing.
It appears that I either slept through the experience or I have no memory. No time
passed, or at least I don't believe any time passed... from my first encounter until now.
The only thing that I'm sure of at this point is that something was there.
Something is alive in that dimension and it is not content to remain there."
