Jeremy So glad I discovered this band. Nothing short of a fuzzy and psychedelic doomy masterpiece. This band knows how to rock out and how to create music that feels like a dream. Favorite track: The Mortal Suite.

Lurr A fuzzy, moody, prog-psych record left beneath a thick layer of grime at the bottom of a sunless cave; undisturbed, it steeps in a heavy, grimy sludge.

The result? Perfection; a proggy, fuzzy, heavy psych album soaked in groovy doom atmosphere - with sax. Favorite track: The Mortal Suite.

Track Name: Tower Fall
Hope is lost to us
Our cities fade away
Abandoned they wept
Without the magic of the frey
And for what is left
For the rest left to decay
Wallowing endlessly
As the Ashes burn away
The curse creeps gently
It festers everyday
Behold the end of us!
 
YOU WILL PAY!

Towers burn away
As they Crumble into rust
Blighted our people lay
As their bodies turn to dust
Hollowed Souls are screaming
As their Burning in their graves
Floating down the river
As our Faith is washed away
Blessed was the chosen
For the light is gone today
Behold the end of us

YOU WILL PAY!
Track Name: Chaos Blade
You are a Wizard of Nothing!
Betrayer of the realm
Warbringer of destruction!
Lord of rotted helm

YOUR SOUL WILL CRAWL
IN THE VOID OF IT ALL
EMPTINESS - PURE BLISS
CORRUPTED HOLINESS!

I WILL REAP YOUR SOUL

All of Chaos ensueing!
You Lay waste to all
Endlessly consuming!
None escape your maw

DESECRATION - FALSE GOD
ON A THRONE FIT FOR A FRAUD
"I'M THE WIZARD"... YOU CLAIM
BUT YOU BELONG TO FLAME!

I WILL REAP YOUR SOUL
Track Name: Mindflayer
ILL INFECT YOUR MIND
PENETRATE ENZYME
ILL CONSUME YOUR BRAIN
DREAMS AND FEARS THE SAME

MIND FLAYER

ILL ENSLAVE YOUR KIND
WITHOUT NO REASON OR RHYME
ASSIMILATE THEM ALL
THEY WILL HEAR THE CALL

WELL ABSOLVE YOU!
CONTROL AND BIND YOU!
MIND FLAYER!

WE CRAWL IN THE DARK
INSIDE YOUR MIND
CEREBRUM MELTED
SPLIT YOUR MIND IN TWO
CORRUPT THEM ALL
YOUR HEAD IS EMPTY

ILL TEAR THROUGH YOUR SKIN
SILKY THOUGHTS WITHIN
YOURE STRANGLED BY THE WIRE
GREY MATTER SET ON FIRE

MIND FLAYER

YOU ARE MINE TO CONTROL
ILL DECONTRUCT YOU WHOLE
SEARCHING FROM INSIDE
THERES NOWHERE LEFT TO HIDE!

WELL ABSOLVE YOU
CONTROL AND BIND YOU
MIND FLAYER

WE CRAWL IN THE DARK
INSIDE YOUR MIND
CEREBRUM MELTED
SPLIT YOUR MIND IN TWO
CORRUPT THEM ALL
YOUR HEAD IS EMPTY
Track Name: Basilisk
A creature nears its full of teeth
It hungers for the flesh of this empty street
Dark claws scratching at the Gates
It pulls lost souls into its drooling gape

OH THE BLIGHT!!!
YOURE SINKING...
 
This creature bloated and filled blood
Like a graveyard rotting In the boiled mud
For her hunger it never sleeps
It fills its belly as far as it is deep

OH THE BLIGHT!!!
YOURE SINKING...

Through the town of wood and bone
Where the sludge consumes most of everyone
I see the creature awaiting me
In a hollowed out bottom of a dying tree

OH THE BLIGHT!!!
YOURE SINKING...
Track Name: Metamorphosis
What will i become?
Oh the things ive done
The days click by
Im running out time
Basislisk is gone
Through me it carries on
Ive fallen into black
Theres no coming back

A Blood flows through me
A dark monstrosity
Bones protrude from skin
An evil lies within


Stride collapses out
I fall amongst the drought
I crawl through the sand
A stranger of this land
I dont want to die
To the creature inside
I feel it writhe within
Underneathe the skin

Metamorphosis
A flesh sarcophagus
I fear i am lost
My death is the cost
Track Name: The Mortal Suite
As mountains shift around us
And Rivers turn to clay
In your absent dissallusions
As your world decays
Oh wizard you shall suffer
And you will pay
For a legacy of death and sorrow
Burn it all away!

Forgotten slaughtered children
ripped Apart from thee
Bodies of Warclouds blooming
Through the melted tree
You left this world to crawl through
Through A dying sea
Oceans of madness sprawling
From your apathy

I see your wicked life has
Caught up to you
You suffer from a sickness
Just as i do
This world its burns against us
For that is true
Plauged souls we are poor wizard
Bound in doom!!
