Cosmic Terror

H.L. This adult and grim piece of black metal reminds me sometimes at Dissection with its sharp melodic guitars and its earnestness. There are neither spheric keyboards nor female vocals or any other softeners. The powerful, transparent sound puts the rough energy of soul-crushing melodic guitars in the middle, like a fist in the face. Check "The Path of Solitude", "The Wide Emptiness" or the title track. Favorite track: The Path Of Solitude.

infernopanda1349 Very excellent melodies and melancholy sound structure. One of the best modern melodic black metal bands out there today and this album proves it! Favorite track: Strive For Salvation.

spawnofchaos Powerful black metal with catchy guitar melodies and thunderous drums. The pace is relentless, and the album as a whole is fantastic. Favorite track: The Path Of Solitude.

hatbanger_ollie I arrived rather late at the party but after all it's still a party! Full of memorable hooks and it gets even better as it progresses. This is one hell of a blackened melo-death album. So glad I re-discovered and finally bought it during the Corona virus quarantine. Favorite track: The Path Of Solitude.
Replicate Extinction

Replicate Extinction Absolutely stunning release. It's an incredible fusion of melodeath and black metal, with some other seasonings sprinkled in along the way to bring something fresh and interesting. The riffs are high quality, and I feel like the songs were well thought out and cared for to deliver such a pleasing assault. Fantastic job. Favorite track: Repugnant Human Scum.

The ability to spread agony A sick craft you truly master The enduring thirst for power and dominion Poison, obsessional voracity Dangerous strength to the perverted insane Unleash hell to enhance pathetic egotism You sick fuck who creates his own reality Inviolable, attendant of the key Intruder with backward ideals Serpent as time reveals Hate caused by lies, infected human mind Violence will rise from repression Atrocities and fratricide, systematic homicide Breeding ground for terror and pain The heart stands still when the thunder is roaming Inferno, the dragon´s breath released a sea of fire Mud soaked with blood, insanity breaks out Images and cries which will never leave your mind Torn life to pieces Madness erupts upon the world Turn eden into a wasteland
Mystified, alienated from the world around Sense, aspire for enlightenment The quest, emerge from the abyss Sorrow, the fuel that lights the flame. Meaningless, gratifications of your pathetic life Attended by the moon, your dusk is my dawn Onerous times, when I walk the trails of mortals Distressing times, detained by my demons I strive for salvation Suffer and embrace temptation The strain, intoxication of the mind Trial, rise from the adversity Escape the past and enter fields denied Misery for the weak, I fight for the treasure I seek
The end of balance rise of insanity Dominant one a new reality No hope for liberation, annihilation Frustrated and appalled the upsetting certainty The mind is capable of such abysmal ferocity Distress caused by resolute ignorance The fool´s empty words a tremendous insolence Hypocritical one take the son of another one and let it be done Lead the blade end the day look in the eye when life fades away Predetermined fate born into perdition Greed is sovereign and averts abolition The journey ends you smell the blood and hear the last moan You realize with giant fear that soon you´ll taste your own Repugnant human scum Pale tyrant phantom of death Structure an iron wall Mother hear their call
As I found myself at this barren empty scene The uncharted desert, soon to question everything Yesterday, a slowly fading memory Begin the odyssey across this vast desolation There is no infinite patience The seven will soon elapse Enter the second circle Absent the two whisperers Withdraw from confusion Withdraw from their hold As I proceed to walk, my vision on the path Don´t notice the approaching darkness The conflict with oneself, time will agonise you Utterly alone encountering a demon Grow from suffering Face the tasks in the chasm At times the pit sends something back Sorrow reveals understanding Withdraw from adaption Withdraw from their beliefs With every step I feed my despair Seeing now that thoughts will turn into action Devote myself to the rising shadow Crush the bonds of life I embrace the eclipse The path of solitude leads me away from thee Prisoner of my experience Melancholy will transfigure me So my journey ends as I reach the altar of ages And run the knife of determination Release liquid life, no need for a sermon There is no fear when you are certain
Creation raised by lucid minds Unforeseen architects of death Madness the horror was evoked Incertitude a new age has begun Sickening beauty reaches to the sky The first one, followed by the gemini A fallen star carrier of gloom Towering clouds the pillars of doom Ten down blinded by the flash Eerie shadows burnt into the ground A fatal mist diffuses across the sea Bringer of disorder your scion will decline Scattering the unseen demise Invisible alters the code of live A firestorm the power of the sun Twisted steel morbid relicts of the past Growing titan fatal vapor rising high Doomed as they walk towards the pillar
The small in the endlessness A drop in the vast ocean The infinite where a lifetime means nothing A meaningless spark in the dark Nothing A dim perception Distance beyond comprehension Rising phenomena, no imagination Unable to understand I gaze into the sky Witness an ancient cry A faint light from the blast A picture of our past Floating across the black sea Facing the colossus in the core Orbiting the source Combined by the invisible force A journey with bleak future As sanity will not prevail A fading civilization Towards extermination Realize your nothingness In the wide cosmic emptiness


Only two and a half years after the self-release of their debut (re-released on Nuclear Blast in August 2018), the trio from Saarbrücken, Germany, announces the completion of their second studio effort, due to be released via AOP Records.

After a busy year of 2018, packed with release shows at the German Party.San and Summer Breeze festivals as well as an extensive European tour with Hypocrisy and Kataklysm, bandleader and songwriter M.T. entered the Woodshed Studios in the spring of 2019, to record this sophomore release with producer V. Santura (Triptykon, Dark Fortress). Previously, the drums have been tracked at the Iguana Studio in Baden-Württemberg.
