Ha transcurrido casi un par de décadas desde que los australianos irrumpieran en la escena, con paso lento pero firme han dejado por el camino un puñado de demos y splits hasta llegar a los álbumes que parecen centrar sus lanzamientos en épocas más recientes. No vamos ahora a ponernos descubrir a la banda, quien no lo haya hacho todavía debería de darle una oportunidad, no ya solo a está su última obra sino a toda su carrera. El sonido de Stargazer tiene mucho de death clásico, de death de la vieja escuela apoyado en un sonido de bajo totalmente reconocible y en su día fué seña de identidad de bandas como Pestilence o Morbid Angel, porque si bien Stargazer tiene una parte black, digamos que vanguardista y con poca presencia en su música, si que es cierto que el death es el estilo que más cómodos se sienten practicando. Sonido clásico, pero sin renunciar a ciertos matices, si que saben ofrecer algunos pasajes de rock clásico y recrear unas atmósferas ritualistas y místicas muy en la línea de una banda de black metal. Australia sigue ofreciendo grandes bandas a la escena extrema, Strargazer no son unos recién llegados pero con el paso de los años han sabido dotar a su sonido de madurez y creatividad, resultando de todo ello una banda diferente dentro del panorama black-death y que ofrecen en los apenas 37 minutos de este "A Merging to the Boundless" una obra más allá de los límites de lo establecido. (8,2).


1. Black Gammon 03:39
  Perched on bones of dissent
Interloper from the Fourth
Sate, desire to sicken
Born of the Source

Faith weighs a blade
Segregating the human congregate

Masked, sallow, His face
Waxes and wanes
Flaxen and feign

All our wayward have truly lost their way
Suffer the lost, the procured children
All prayers to the Lord, retract them now
The Lord is one mask
Masque of Gammon!
2. Old Tea 05:06
  Antiquial light shed with a wave of lichen hand
An ancient tress, a wooden pulse
Varnish reeks, shadows creak
A stale grace, old tea, old tea

Here, lies power dormant, undying light
Aether moves as blown dust correlates
Elder light suffused in the cold
Glazing grey permeates all corner

A jurisdiction passed on the immaterial
Can here, not dream death on life

Otherworldy shan't call the living
With falsities
Material silence
Utter and complete

They disperse from the unmistaken
Corporeal manifest
Dry rot
Old tea
3. An Earth Rides Its Endless Carousel 06:36
 The man's wizened stance
And his knotted thunder staff
Reducing man and beast to naught
Magick that diseases steel
For be (and they) cannot return

A vacuum only prime man sees
A universal war left us stranded by decree
In fear of reprisals, we hallowed this earth
A geocentric kiss, a taint of our deepest skin

The Greyed swords, bejewelled in two black orbs
Those gods in turning fires
You partook of their essence

An oblivion and chaos rife, flesh in turmoil
A bond in whoredom, man
Whoredom by the hands of these
Emblazoned mastery, flyers of the Wheel

Serpent sigil aloft on stolen wings
They dare speak unto us as gods
Draw us from the earth in droves
Our minds bent back wards
4. A Merging to the Boundless 04:11
Omni-potentate Multifarious anthropos Zodiacal chi absorbs and focus aligns White skinned, purple pulsed monarch Emerges of the House One a warrior One a mediator One lay weary to die my death One born of my rib to learn again Toads infect this cosmic stream Goading, mimic-king Gloat alike Wretched in their wanton pedigree Wields energy beaming down Light from the outer sphere  
5. The Grand Equalizer 11:00
His slovenly lordship, spits phlegmy ages
Yawns the weary aches
Of Death, from his bones
An evil olde sol was he

Woe a black skull ensconced in bones
Insinuating One
He who hammers myth hard on the forge

Woe the ages, so many weary moons
Petrified him, inside to out

From one church, through temples
A winding trail
Gloriou gold paved roads
So many sacrifices

All love became sand
Outside the hourglass
Poured into the palm
Slips surely through frail fingers

That blazing sun under my lids, behind my teeth
Lay dead on the precipice of the abyss

Creeping up to engulf mine eye
To steal my vision complete
To steal all colours
One by one
6. Ride the Everglade of Reogniroro 03:20
The oceans of Leviathan Bathed in permanance Drowned in the formaldehyde He exists in the deep un-fathomed light I am sworn to incubate the messiash Of the final transgression Enslaved in glacial bonds Though delivered, to taxiderm The conclusive race First and last creation Pursuing the trivial ageing in pre-meditation Poltergeist spawn on the tree of life Scars will aflame, stiches will bust As physical holocaust is rehearsed Lord of the everglade Reogniroro will hatch Hierarchy and scum will end The ultimate knowledge is death Infinite is existence, until reached, is this  
7. Incense and Aeolian Chaos 03:59
I play for them A sermon To summon Lurch through planes Folding spatial time They saith I play with passions unbound Voyce thy silent choir, Alien harmonies I'll not hear, here Lest they will it, in slumber, in trance And tumult have. Parasites, dictates, ghostly masons Coalesce in corners of this abode Swirling, deepening, downewards, darknesse Night weary shadows Darknesse! Sing to me I learn, I scribe Belated realisation of Concealed magick! Bless me, ye! Secretion of lack, and light To tame the wild Ghostly traffick
