Resplendence, as servants we are hidden in distress In silence we glare, in light, ablaze Embraced, aligned in pitch-black mass we rot And drown into time and space And we are crawling from abyss, In a sudden flash widespread Through time and space, as a stream of grace When we have fallen, down into the void Esteem the fading, our inner mourning flame In obedience, in damnation we are damned to obsess In reticence we shine, in glitter, sparkling bright Sustained, forgotten, as shivered souls we spoil And drown into time and space In a moment of disguise, we descry sombrous rebirth In a stream of grace descend, as clandestine stars When we have fallen, dawn beyond all grief Withstand the burden, we promise our last farewell Solo: L. Klausenitzer / R. Trujillo Embraced, aligned in pitch-black mass widespread Extolled our remains, as clandestine stars we rot
2.
Annihilate, accelerate, surge into cold pristine state Invisible radiation, everlasting desecration Profane sun, pervading light, splendor burst to virgin dust Revelation, restitution, a riven covenant Arise nocturnal star, into the void of eternal light From brume into renascence, emergent evolution Perennial aeonic divine eclipse Arise - light of shining bliss Divine - night in cosmic abyss Devastate, discreate, putrefied and liquefied Separation, isolation, final dissolution Celestial spheres, a pallid flame, repulsive procreation Manifestation, adumbration, luminous in radiance Arise celestial bliss, into the void of divine essence As a swarm into renascence, emergent evolution Concentric primordial subsistence reborn Arise - light of shining bliss Divine - night in cosmic abyss Solo: S. Kummerer / R. Trujillo / S. Kummerer Recreate, generate, turning into supreme black light Ethereal abomination, artificial entity Profane sun, pervading light, splendor burst to virgin dust Revelation, restitution a riven covenant - arise

Diluvium 05:02 video
When radiation fades and remnants dissipate Sacrificed we reunite in obedience Decayed and lapsed in entropy Bewailed, intoned the last elegy Elapsed this diminished last piece of time Shattered, convulsed, distressed in clarity Diluvium - a vortex of primordial black holes, unbound Diluvium - a stream into nothingness, unleashed Drowned evaporation, enduring lucent purity Grand deprivation, eternal cosmic unity When resplendence elapsed, and fragments abrogates Consecrated we insist in allegiance Constrained and deformed in ecstasy Enrapt, entranced in parity Bygone this languished finite state of mind Battered, relinquished, distraught deformity Solo: T. Trujillo
4.
I overcome this world Endowed with golden light Obliterate and recreate A serenade of life and death Embraced in eternal night Infinite and purified A last gathering of time and space In solitude, I drawn to stars Dissolving in eclectic haze In malice, I saturate in gloom I overcome this world Perished in perpetual bliss Devastate and recreate Solos: R. Trujillo Beyond the veil, blessed initiate descent In magnitude, splendor bright unscathed Shattered in pieces, vanquished volition Mortification of the vulgar sun
5.
Cosmic havoc in oblivious embrace To deport this alternation Arcade of aeons, motion in time Dissolves in absolution Conflagration - back to primordial condition Cosmogenesis - life and death In ethereal skies, we transcend in eclectic divine As a glimpse of light, forevermore In wandering stars, we emerge from light to abyss As abandoned gods, we redeem in purgatory Deliverance, a slender form of desolation In bareness, beyond profound abyss Perception, a final glimpse of dignity In radiation of the blackest light Solo: R. Trujillo Retrogression, in solitary meditation In clarity, consigned to infinity Perpetuity, a constant shattered past In sempiternal neutrality
6.
Convergence 04:04
Consumed in a vortex, beheld the celestial wrath With our spirits aligned, we immersed in evenfall Engrossed in infinity, congealed in perpetual spleen In consciousness remained, the universe’s final call At the edge of time, a convergent entity Erased in blackness, obtained eternal path In our shivers sublime, we collapsed in crimson sprawl Enthralled in sparkling loss, transcend in eternal gleam Annihilation unbound, in maenadic velocity Rise, convergent black star, revive from life into decay Dissolve in cosmic seas, enthralled to strain the burden As an anthem of life and death, as an epitaph of all light Solo: R. Trujillo / S. Kummerer Our last funeral, redeemed sustaining the vortex Drowning down eclectic bliss, we remain relieved in deliverance
7.
Ekpyrosis 05:23
Forevermore, an eternal wave enfolds, ekpyrosis occur Transits in fiery red, invoked flat fourth dimension Extending to all sides, the equation of state As branes, in true magnitude we collide in cosmos and light Expanse, in matter and time, void dimension, eternal night Into the absolute, as we blend into cosmic mist, conflagration behold Reborn in shattered past, in the midst of erasing stars At the world’s dawn, the eternal cosmic night Solo: R. Trujillo Forevermore, an eternal wave enfolds Bleach into the absolute, spirit divine In time and space aligned In time and space, eternal night
8.
Foul and tainted, putrid in spite Departed, serene, deceived in faith Emanated and ruptured in creed Condemned forever, captured in doom Devoured in oblivion, redeemed in gloom And abandon demise, I stare in eternal despair of yore Perseverant and keen, I endure the curse In boundless spirits, the faith of gods Devoured in oblivion, redeemed in gloom And abandon demise, I stare in eternal despair of yore The seventh aeon elating, the bringer of light enfolding its vigor In a halo of light, I bare as remaining grandeur once more Solo: R. Trujillo / S. Kummerer Shrouded in silence, unhallowed black sermon Condemned forever, captured in doom Devoured in oblivion, redeemed in gloom And abandon demise, I stare in eternal despair of yore The seventh aeon elating, the bringer of light enfolding its vigor In a halo of light, I bare as remaining grandeur no more
9.
The one who has fallen Wrapped in nocturnal despise Surrender of the cosmic lie Conjuration, evoke above and below Arcane, occult, clandestine stars witnessed The one who has drowned Enshrouded in splendor so bright Inclination of the blackest light Fragrance of the perished, redemption revealed Slaver, strive, iniquitous life redeemed in wrath Invocation, ascend to its source and Crave, cure, purity, the surrender of cosmic lies In revelation, fathomless glory Sacrificed mortals, a scorned trinity Solo: R. Trujillo / S. Kummerer
10.
I, I’m the bringer of light and glance into Doom, resurrected in gloom I enfold, as your destiny and blaze into Fate, incarnated in grace into A farewell to the stars, redeemer of the final abyss A farewell to eternal spheres, deliverer of the solar eclipse I, I’m the savior, liberator, destroyer In eclectic sanctuary I pass, within remnants of yore, neglect A purified divine achieved I, I’m the savior of light and glance into Doom, I wander in gloom And drown in ablaze of perpetual distress Dissolving in aeons of perennial black mass Chaos, distress, and wrath and death Solo: R. Trujillo Deliverance and Consciousness, aeonic destiny Immanent and transcendent, where spirits reunite A maelstrom of unity, eternal and divine A farewell to infinity, each soul glorified
