New standalone single! Two years after our self-released debut album Catalyst we return with a renewed lineup and a sound


There is something out there tugging at the seams
Something that does not conform
Does not adhere to mortal thought
Thoughtless and merciless

Colossal and indifferent
Relentless in its path
Unbound by laws of reason
Anathema to sanity

Brilliant light in a ruinous dance
Focusing the eye of the storm

Space, time and matter fold in on themselves
Silent screams devoured by jaws of gravity
Gnashing and crushing the firmament

Reduced to a state where death does not apply

Voracious, ravenous - creation its hunting ground
A black eye reflecting the end
The hourglass smashed and ground to dust
The concept of space annihilated

The edge of existence
The precipice of cosmos, this presence in the void

Reality pulverized into nothingness
Infinity stretched and torn apart
Eternity itself cannot survive

Reality, infinity, eternity
All shall be unmade

Resign to your fate
There is no escape from the presence in the void


released March 23, 2018
Recorded at Studio Haga. Produced by Robert Kukla. Mixed/Mastered by Christian Svedin. Cover art by Intuitive Designs.
