Dan Curhan I keep coming back to this album again and again, though by all my normal metrics it shouldn't necessarily be a standout. I guess that's what perfection merits - melodic, aggressive, dark and dissonant, atmospheric and engaging, it takes a while to sink in, and may never truly blow your mind, but will never ever disappoint you. Favorite track: She Who Walks Upon the Sea.

Tym(E))) There aren't too many days I don't spend some time thanking the metal gods for Angry Metal Guy. Had it not been for that site I would not have found Bandcamp. Possibly. Be that as it may, I trust much of what that site says is worthy of my time, and Horizon Ablaze is no exception. Great record and well reviewed. I encourage all to check it out at www.angrymetalguy.com/horizon-ablaze-weight-thousand-suns-review/. Thanks Eldritch for sharing.................

Talvalin Progressive, melodic blackened death metal? Fuck knows. I lack good descriptors for this excellent album, but if your head doesn't start banging at 4:12 of the first track then you might as well give up on metal.

Track Name: Sleep is the Brother of Death
This may be my last night on earth.
So Decadent, Such recklessness
The light falls from the sky
And the earth sinks below
I descend into my world of endulgence

The fire calls my name
My life fades to black

Dust covered mountains
Trees of liquid gold
They have longed for me
Serenaded me in my dreams

I descend into my world of endulgence
Of emptiness, of despair

As I sink into the haze
I’ll find solace in my kingdom, my dimension

When you cross my threshold, you you belong to me
Searching for something to hold that does not die
Ill gauge my eyes out so I can see
Finding some truth in every lie
I broke my bones for your desire
Twisted flesh to sculpt the liar

The fire calls my name
My life fades to black
Track Name: Delusions of Grandeur
The world trembles in awe before my feet
A savant in every trait
Yet my past is of humility
No wealth to our name, and shunned by society

Like a phoenix from the ashes I rose above and deemed my place
Like a diamond in the rough, waiting to shine, waiting to glow in all my splendor

You may ask yourself, how do I shine so bright
Im not to blame for this gift I have
And I say how dare you
How dare you, To question me

Destined to surpass all of you
My path paved in gold, oh the emeralds
I might bleed unto you if you bow deep enough
For you know what I say is true

Like a phoenix from the ashes I rose above and deemed my place
Like a diamond in the rough, waiting to shine, waiting to glow in all my splendor

Once I bore the cross for you, at a time of despair
I took your sins, and made them my own

Why do you worship a relic of me?
When im standing here before you

Long have I searched for a father, but in vain.
Who could create a man like me, but god?

When you thought all hope is gone, I rose from beyond
I rose from beyond
Track Name: Ghost of a Previous Nightmare
Remember when we spoke of demons?
We were nine.
Youth have long since gone and our eyes may have withered
But we know what must be done
The pact cannot be broken
Our fate is sealed.

Who could ever know? That we will rule with an iron fist.

In a world where I am king
You’ll become my barren queen
Rule by my side
The fields of emptiness

The world would be right if it only brought our truth
Condemned to walk your narrow path
Trapped between pillars of earth
Time has corroded the chain

Oh how I mourn the loss
The key to our palace turned to dust
As they drowned you away
With their vile concoction

In a world where I am king
You’ll become my barren queen
Rule by my side
The fields of emptiness

All I have left is behind closed eyes
Track Name: She Who Walks Upon the Sea
Is she who flutters.
The mistress who swept me away
So soothing, so euphoric
The bite should sting, yet the pain cares for me

Sinking deeper than sorrow
Motionless I float in your dreams
So close you feel my breath
So close I taste your soul

In a moment of clarity, I gain my composure
Looking through the eyes of the raven
All my wounds cry for forgiveness and soon they are drenched
Life was never meant for me
For me

Sinking deeper than sorrow
I float in your dreams
So close you can feel me
So close I can taste you
Track Name: The End of a Dream
When to part with fate?
How lonesome I will be, as darkness drinks me
I gave you all I was,
You

Breaking all we built to fail
To what end?
What am I supposed to do?
How to mend?
A broken spell, you broke our world
I gave you all

Love, the accepted insanity
Locked in a sphere where emotions rule.
Blinded by your own lust
Seduced by the guiding hand.

Your dream ends when I clench my fist.

You reach inside and give your heart
To the hand that caress, to the hand that destroys
Willfully knowing the time will come
When the curtain must fall, and the magic is lost

Your dream ends when I clench my fist.

As the ones before me, I burn away the parts I used.
Leaving a trail of despair, a trail of despair for you to wander, upon

When to part with fate?
How lonesome I will be, as darkness drinks me
I gave you all I was
All I am

Rage, the accepted remedy
Bound in thorns, bound in hate
A fate worse than death, sealed by your guiding hand
Track Name: Behind the Veil
For eons I have ruled within
danced through your dreams
Walked the dunes of tranquility
What you hold so dear it bleeds
It feeds on me
Extracted oceans of

Insanity
Bleeding the skin

The bitter aftertaste, of a brew called content

Sacrilegious eyes writhe within, brought forth by sin
My world built on your agony
Oceans never felt so real, so compelled to kneel
Submerging me in

Calamity
Behind the Veil

The bitter aftertaste, of a brew called content

As your walls are closing in
My world expands into yours

I sit my throne, glaring into the chasm
Into your soul, I’ll find your most precious
What you hold so dear, it withers in my hands like grains of sand
Cut my skin like shards of broken glass

The river flows from my wound, to your grail
Track Name: My Soul Divided
Horrendous visions depicting a world in utter turmoil
In utter chaos

Divided soul, from flesh
Torn from the coil, it once caressed
Now a path of solitude
Bleeding its sorrows unto you

The world cries to me
Demonic possessions they say
I will never yield
In these games they play

They insist on making me see
Through their eyes lies reality

In a haze of despair
I have known you were always there
Are you my long lost twin?
Are we bound by flesh within?

We do not need their salvation
Why submit to your world?
When we can conjure our own.
Let us fall as one to a place called home

I heard your voice, so many times before
Never thought I could quench it

Shapeless you linger, am I blind?
To the obvious, no. No!
No!
We are legion, we are one!
Track Name: Insidious
I come from a plague where white is black.
Banished to hell yet now I’m back.
Spawned to dilute your perception
Forged to divert your intentions

I linger in corners unseen, so filthy and yet so clean
I rise when you bend your knees
I’m the last thing you’ll ever knew

So familiar, yet so strange
So cold but trying, someone I used to know

Come kneel by my side, and let me gaze upon
Your shifting face
Tell me who you are
Ill spit my words in disbelief

I am the subtle thief of you
I am the haze you can’t get though
Bewildered you walk my planes
Betrayed by my dreary sway
Searching for what one cannot find
Stealing the weak and fragile mind
Don’t fear my old friend
Don’t fear the last descent

For the first time in my life
I am touching darkness
And it feels like
It feels like solitude

All wrapped in black liquid
All dressed in tailored death




Come kneel by my side, and let me gaze upon
Your shifting face
Tell me who you are
Ill spit my words in disbelief

I am, Insidious!
