justanoldgod There are a bunch of skiffs out on a slow-moving river. They’re dragging the water for my body. There’s a low, dense fog that the first light of morning cannot penetrate. Dogs on the shore are letting loose low, rumbling growls. There’s something beneath the surface. The same thing that dragged me under and made short work of me. Something ancient and eldritch... This record feels like turning the pages of your favorite horror novel. It’s brilliant in all respects. Buy it now.

Sludge Mouf This is absolutely, unforgivably disgusting death sludge. I died listening to it. Favorite track: Serpent Drug Cult Mythology.

Deterioration Unearth Buried in the wreckage of false burials Petrified relics dripping ancient death Deterioration Unearth Beneath the burden of dark monuments Buried fragments of unremitting stories Deterioration Unearth Survival and it's impetuous pursuit lie feeble in it's own wake Outstretched aeon seething into arcane vision Sonic cataclysm over sentient waters
2.
Alchemical process of self destruction Mirroring archetypal patterns of hermetic memory Cognitive Dissonance Derealization Depersonalization blocking pathways of reflection Onset of psychosis relinquished by laws of introspection Unearthing the tried Black sand desert below azure sky Illuminate inward world
3.
Diseased Martyr Unable to ascend Offers desperate sacrifice In paralysis of sleep Whose dead is this to redeem? In primordial dream remnants of ancient self persist Offers desperate sacrifice In paralysis of sleep, pleading Whose dead is this to redeem? Consciousness stream stray eternal Beneath the weight of cyclical seasons Wander, despot Drudging through a wasteland subconscious Slowly drowning

Dead Rituals 08:53
Slowly fading into obscurity Drifting closer to uncertainty What begins must end All the same in this wicked game Taking up space until we leave this place I can hardly believe what is happening Is this the prophecy? Slowly fading into obscurity Drifting closer to uncertainty All works will come undone for the sake of no one What was is soon to be forgotten Buried within the crypt of time A murky memory is all we're destined to be
