Andrej Romić Loooove this band. Such an interesting Canadian progressive death metal band, with brutal riffs and nasty, deep growls. Not the typical stuff you'd expect to hear. Favorite track: Fragmentation of the Mind.

A mix of old school death metal crossed with early 2000s tech death, spliced with a subtle touch of progressive elements...what one has described as "...classical music on crack."

"...the human mind is quite susceptible to....

Track Name: Fragmentation of the Mind
Fragmenting from the mind
Imprinted through time
Envision manifestation
Is this real or hallucination?

Everything is perception
Your senses are all that you know
Thoughts hold such power
Perception becomes hallucinations

Even though you may feel something in your bones
Your heart, mind and soul
Does not mean it's an absolute
....of absolutes....

Track Name: Brain Trauma
- Focal impact upon the...

- Colossal force pierces the skull and breaches the dura mater,
The outermost membrane surrounding the brain has been severely mutilated
Horrific force sends shock waves through the skull, resulting in tissue damage
Hemorrhage within the hemispheres, cerebral laceration, the darkness swells in, all things become meaningless

- Losing all feeling, and senses in my being
As I lose consciousness, my head fills with blood

- Bleed -

- Moribund reality, fading mortality
On the verge of non existence
It’s not worth being saved, with a jig saw puzzle for a brain
If you are to survive, would you have any sense of life

- Falling in and out of consciousness ...memories of life, visions of horror

- Craniotomy - must begin immediately
In order to relieve the pressure on the brain
Thin-walled arteries to rupture, releasing blood into the brain tissue.

- Cutting a hole in the skull with a drill to expose
The brain and remove the clot - Brainstem compression
A hallow needle suctions out all of the contents
Create blood profusion - Let the blood flow

- Bleed -


- Falling deep into the abyss, seconds feel like minutes
Moments before my final death, my life flashes before my eyes.

Track Name: Seeding Infinity
- Seed -

- It's difficult for one to fathom-beyond this mortality
A higher realm of existence in the universe

- Beyond thought, comprehension-your senses, and instincts
Awaits ones immortality -

- Be -

- New realm of consciousness, of being - Seeding infinity
- New tense ...of understanding, of everything - Universal eye

- Time ceases to exist, the pendulum forever swings, without form

- Revealing the new dimension -
- You are your own deity - x2

- New sense ...of experience, no feeling - One with the void
- New realm - nonexistence, no form - Mute to all things
- New realm ...of consciousness, of being - Seeding infinity
- New tense ...of understanding, of everything - Universal eye

- Within oneself - Equilibrium -

- Pass beyond this ocean of life (and) death -
