marco They can be rhythmically disorienting one second, then groovy the next, even beautifully solemn a moment later (and transitioning well). Favorite track: Exult.

Dann 'the djentle giant' The album in itself is a complex blend of jazz metal, progressive and post-rock with a hint of melodic death metal. Some songs are technical and slighty brutal, but some other ones are full of harmony and audacity. The whole is simply perfect for the ones who crave for prog metal like me. This is without any doubt the best release I heard for the past 10 years. It is now on the no.1 position of my top 10. Favorite track: Tidal.

Devata 03:04
Broken Path 05:18
Awake, chanting glare Torn apart a mirror of unclear sights A deceiver of grief, enchanter of clay Regretting a soulless beginning “Sooner than later A broken path will share your way Scorning the answers That once beholded an unclear path” Regulating endeavor Bystanding caress for the unsettled grief We know how it became forsaken Deluded by the creation Senses burning inside A flesh-eating plague “Rise now, Neglecting the frames of delusion A clear call for removal Awaiting, To provide us a voice…” And so we shout Resurrect inner demons Take part in this endless repression Erasing all the resentments Of mirthless perspectives… A perfect disaster Regression Obsessive call for answers Fades out in repentance We awake in a lingering path Rising from the dirt...
Era um redondo vocábulo Uma soma agreste Revelavam-se ondas Em maninhos dedos Polpas seus cabelos Resíduos de lar Pelos degraus de Laura A tinta caía No móvel vazio Convocando farpas Chamando o telefone Matando baratas A fúria crescia Clamando vingança Nos degraus de Laura No quarto das danças Na rua os meninos Brincando e Laura Na sala de espera Inda o ar educa
Ascend 03:07
Become 07:06
We carry around the heavy fate Setting the mind across the shade When all fears join to reborn… ''Mother, there's no use for us... All the pressure... There's no need for desperate measures... '' Feeling more and more, A streaming dance throughout this fake illusion ''Mother, there's no use for us... All the pressure... There's no need for desperate measures... '' To become the only one Who did let you down Feeling more and more, A streaming dance throughout this fake illusion Became diseased Mistakes provided We’ve built our image of the place To be Blooming seed Makes you believe the time as come An answer within Beyond your faded sight “Never lose yourself Drawn to a war You’re always Drawn into a void Your soul may end up being destroyed…”
Exult 03:58
Deceived By an unsettled grief A delusion, a sight to embrace The one as we are An ocean The giant that calls Something we sense, a key to immerse Beyond frantic walls Life As it comes (to a) state of divide I Will preserve my intent to Take this life far Beyond I’ll react to the faceless deception Once and for all… Reach for the aeon As we fall silence reborns Uneven... Arise…WE RISE!! Now we fight for an answer! Did He ever relinquished His will for damnation? Why did He fall? We prescind of the senses Like the child in her mother’s womb The streamless endeavour Which condemned life itself Enlightened, free of will, Fleshed-out men on foreign lands Understand the life as it comes to a state of divide
The Mounder 07:22
Longing to arise The madness known to all, Realized Will it prevail? Will it return? Unbelievable ruin A different kind of energy Had lost its tragic heir Fainted… “Listen to yourself in your thoughts, The way your words flow Straight from the soul” Tossed and torn apart Half-empty, soulless child Became the mounder “Listen to yourself in your thoughts The way your words flow Scenes from the soul” To find the weak side Falls to a wicked sight Stranger, unveiler, Unholy demon, Cast the plague upon thee Bring the heir to its cradle I rise as a God A colossal figure Destroyer of all The beholder of time I inherit the life And bury the Maker I tear the flesh and cast the ruin I AM THE MOUNDER
Placid 03:49
Calm down And feel the roar… All my senses Fall over Crying words of shame Watching with lonely eyes How far… There’s still time I want you Next to me You are the remnants of my past You bring me life We’re a step closer Let us take the path to wonder
The Purge 02:27
Fading light Awaits an helpless child A haunted ride all along Sacred soil beneath the ground Healing thoughts that fall around Behold the gentle bright Even the fireflies at sight Flow through like water Since the light that once shined Is now unborn
Tidal 03:08
Drowning The lifted rage Only I could break the word Tempered rain falls down And I remain so calm Cold thoughts may bring some peace among us Hold your stiffed chest And suffered lust Hold your stiffed chest Brought by your sin Daylight hides The last sun dives…
Engulf 05:13


The whole process of composing the debut album, “post human”, was made from a musical principle that would reflect the band perception of the world, reality, matter and spirit. The sense of “musical journey” is then the reference link between the songs, covering a diversity of experiences and moods.
