APOKALUPSIS (2018)
Con una carrera sólida que arranca a mediados de la década de los noventa el trío de Maryland presenta su séptimo álbum de estudio, conservando únicamente a Ron Vento de la formación original. Un trabajo que llega casi cuatro años después de su último lanzamiento y que viene por un lado a ahondar en su vertiente más de ciencia ficción y por otro ofrece una combinación violenta, intensa, brutal y a veces disonante de black death metal característico de la banda. Un trabajo de once temas que abarca y contempla una buena dosis de sonidos black death metal en donde podemos destacar las agresivas y brutales voces de Ron, aspecto que dota a este álbum de un componente tanto agresivo como violento y brutal; no podemos olvidar el omnipresente sonido de batería apartando la contundencia necesaria a la propuesta que acercan su sonido al de bandas como Behemoth (imposible no mencionarlos sobe todo en cuanto los fraseados de batería se aceleran y se entremezclan perfectamente con las voces), o Obituary. Sin embargo tampoco podemos olvidarnos de las guitarras que luchan por respirar en medio de todo el sonido, para ofrecer acertados y variados riffs de tendencia thrash algunos de ellos y que suponen un nuevo aliciente y perspectiva dentro del álbum que aun así por momentos logra crear un perfecto desequilibrio sónico en donde las disonancias cobran protagonismo y ofrecen un variado repertorio de recursos dentro del metal extremo en donde la brutalidad y la melodía se ven equilibrados. Un acertado trabajo, denso, oscuro y brutal que entremezcla acertadamente diferentes estilos dentro del metal extremo con presencia importante del death y el black. (7,9).



1. And After 00:48  

2. Even Angels Sin 03:56
Even angels sin What is, is and always was There is no beginning and no end The fall laid foundation for everything that has happened since Jealousy, hatred, envy, wrath and pride Rejected the reign, illuminated and brought to light Irrevocable lust for the throne, though he is not alone The time before this when humankind did not exist (When humankind did not exist) Exiles turned pretenders, but only few remember Even the angels, yes the angels sin They sin For this the angels are thrust to banishment in sin Legions following the dragon Battalions under requisition, seeking domination The things you have come to believe are imprecise Cast out, but not to earth Dispersed through the universe Irrevocable lust for the throne, though he is not alone The time before this when humankind did not exist (When humankind did not exist) Exiles turned pretenders, but only few remember Even the angels, yes the angels sin They sin For this the angels are thrust to banishment in sin Behemoths bonded to the stars existing deep within their hearts Held in perpetuum Here there can be no escape, but evil always finds its way Even through the unimaginable measure Spheres of plasma through the void Sheltering the hellion hordes' primordial presence One for every fallen being, they all will house eternal demons Made as prison cells, but spawning life as well The king of hell was not cast straight to earth He made his way through this universe Irrevocable lust for the throne, though he is not alone The time before this when humankind did not exist Even angels sin, even angels sin, even angels sin 
3. Phlegethon 03:52
 Lying in wait, a hanging fire judgement
The stars begin to quake, can the sentence they evade

Magnastars, hot burning hells
Unleashing solar flares escaping from their cells
Magnastars they tremble from the power
Of the ones who wish all life devoured

The star that fell from heaven
The son of dawn in chains no more
Phlegethon that stream of fiery light
Astronomical bodies in flight

Kill the dreamer, and see what becomes of the dream

Celestial navigation, bending time cessation
In them there is no fear, traveling through light years

Bound to steal your soul, they are bound to take your soul

Magnastars, hot burning hells
Unleashing solar flares escaping from their cells
Magnastars they tremble from the power
Of the ones who wish all life devoured

The star that fell from heaven
The son of dawn in chains no more
Phlegethon that stream of fiery light
Astronomical bodies in flight

Kill the dreamer, and see what becomes of the dream

Celestial navigation, bending time cessation
In them there is no fear, traveling through light years

Some stars collapse, faster than they flee
There they shall remain, trapped perpetually

In that deep abyss, alone living in perdition
In them time shall cease, for humans this is heaven
4. Arrival 04:25
Billions of years, they have travelled far Just one task at hand, to lead you astray To be the things that do not exist, no, as though they did Feeding the imagination to come to believe With belief becomes potential Then potential becomes power Power turns into dominion Dominion molded into mass disbelief Fallen angels in disguise clandestine to the world Aspersion followed by affusion Their power is most effective when it's least perceived Just like the serpent in the garden of Eden Eve blinded by its cunning ways Sometimes you can’t see what is most real Walking beside us, guiding our way Annunaki, reptilians, andromedans, nordics and the greys To be the things that do not exist, no, as though they did Feeding the imagination to come to believe Conspiring and watching your every step Cloaked by the pale moonlight Lurking deep within the shadows Exchanging your faith for pure torment Fallen angels In disguise clandestine to the world Aspersion followed by affusion Their power is most effective when it's least perceived Just like the serpent in the garden of Eden Eve blinded by its cunning ways Sometimes you can’t see what is most real Walking beside us, guiding our way Wandering beings for whom is reserved the blackness and darkness forever Through every prominent kingdom and dynasty They are the ones who are the masters Watching you become their slaves Fallen angels In disguise clandestine to the world Aspersion followed by affusion Their power is most effective when it's least perceived Just like the serpent in the garden of Eden Eve blinded by its cunning ways Sometimes you can’t see what is most real Walking beside us, guiding our way Fallen angels In disguise clandestine to the world Aspersion followed by affusion  
5. Sarkikos 04:25   
Destination, damnation

When you see the images in the night sky
Casting spells on those who gaze into the night sky
Graceful they seem as they dance along the black

Throned on chariots of fire
Shaking theism, forging lies

Deceiving spirits with doctrines of demons

Sarkikos, in sin you will invest, you will invest
Sarkikos, baptized by the flesh

Extending only to those who have lost their way

Apollyon, fear the angel of death
Since man’s inception putting faithless to the test
Apollyon, he’s been here before
Through centuries, taking different form
Extraterrestrial, terrestrial forms

Captivation, then fascination

On the images in the night sky
Casting spells on those who gaze into the night sky
Graceful they seem as they dance along the black

Grand illusions in the sky
Shaking theism, forging lies

Deceiving spirits with doctrines of demons

Sarkikos, in sin you will invest, you will invest
Sarkikos, baptized by the flesh

Extending only to those who have lost their way

Apollyon, fear the angel of death
With his deception, putting faithless to test
Apollyon, he’s been here before
Through centuries, taking different form
Extraterrestrial, terrestrial forms

Ersatz idols piercing through the void
False preceptors piercing through the endless void

Creating images in the night sky
Casting spells on those who gaze into the night sky
Graceful they seem as they dance along the black

Grand illusions in the sky
Shaking theism, forging lies

Deceiving spirits with doctrines of demons

Sarkikos, in sin you will invest, you will invest
Sarkikos, baptized by the flesh

7. Magor Missabib 04:04
 Abduction Is never for what it seems 
They always choose for lack of belief 
Death comes to the fortunate with relief 
The others kept alive endlessly 

Wishing to be a stillborn child, that your mother’s womb had been your grave 

Magor Missabib, terror on every side 
Magor Missabib, on tablets of flesh he writes 

A prophet delivers a name, the demon will come to embrace 

Pashur born of mortal skin, possession overtakes him 
Pashur dies and will be damned, though the beast will start again 

2000 years now passed, for him it was just like a day 
Striking fear and stealing souls, untamed until he must obey 

Magor Missabib, terror on every side 
Magor Missabib, on tablets of flesh he writes 
Magor Missabib, terror on every side 

A prophet delivers a name, the demon will come to embrace 
The demon will come to embrace 

The occupation of the flesh is ancient way 
Now just lust for torture and decay 

Awake but paralyzed, conscious but feel every knife 
A coma but still you see, the lacerations appear then vanishing 

Amaranthine, it will never cease 
Inexorable, persecution mercilessly 

A mind rape for those who have been returned 
To spread fear of the ones beyond the sun 
But death comes to the fortunate with relief 
The others kept alive endlessly 

Wishing to be a stillborn child, that your mother’s womb had been your grave 

Magor Missabib, terror on every side 
Magor Missabib, on tablets of flesh he writes 

A prophet delivers a name, the demon will come to embrace 
The demon will come to embrace 

Magor Missabib, you will remember his name 
Magor Missabib, you will remember his name
8. The Great Expanse 04:22
Products of the grand creator Inhabit this universe In spectral dimensions, unfathomable to the human grasp But they cannot be here, for the great expanse is much too vast Across the dead region, none can go No species will ever transverse the dark Constructed, insurmountable from the start Like a firefly lit in the night, its light diminishes and then out of sight Out of reach before the flicker fades Civilizations work this way They rise, they fall, flourish, then become extinct By the time you know they exist, they won’t No persuasion can warp spacetime But for the fallen angelic lifeline They lurk, they hide like ghosts, indistinct By the time you know they exist, it's too late No persuasion can cross the black hole But under fallen angelic control They chose not to keep their first estate Lightyears would take thousands of generations to overcome Trying to harness power of a billion suns, it cannot be done so they cannot be here, for the great expanse cannot be undone Across the dead region, none can go No species will ever transverse the dark Constructed, insurmountable from the start Like a firefly lit in the night, its light diminishes and then out of sight Out of reach before the flicker fades Civilizations work this way They rise, they fall, flourish, then become extinct By the time you know they exist, they won’t No persuasion can warp spacetime But for the fallen angelic lifeline They lurk, they hide like ghosts, indistinct By the time you know they exist, it's too late 
9. Esoterica 04:09
   But from those who seemed to be something
whatever they were, it makes no difference to them

For those that seemed to be something added nothing to them
They will not walk into the web of a deceiver willingly

The scripture speaks to ones who open their eyes
These are the few who look to hang on words from psalmists
Revere those who seek the truth, but beware of those who come to find it

Esoterica, understood only by the blessed

For those that seemed to be something added nothing to them
They will not walk into the web of a deceiver willingly

We have nothing to offer such an advanced race
And the technology that they have to give only leads to war and hate

Can you smell the sulphur (sulphur) through their disguise
That malefic aroma burning through their eyes

For those who know prepare for strife
The chaos soon to begin
Penitence is permanent, It erases sin

This is tacenda, things better left unsaid

It is best to let die what is dying, they dug a pit for us, but in it they will fall
The time will come, we all walk through the fire, the enriched will not be burned by the flame

But from those who seemed to be something
Whatever they were, it makes no difference to them

You never know when you may entertain angels, fallen or otherwise

But from those who seemed to be something
Whatever they were, it makes no difference to them

For those who know prepare for strife
The chaos soon to begin
Penitence is permanent, It erases sin

They have nothing to offer such a redeemed race
If you look inside you will find it, a divine touch and his embrace

Can you smell the sulphur (sulphur) through their disguise
That malefic aroma burning through their eyes
10. Apokalupsis 04:52   
Lo-Ruhamah, armageddon, there will be no mercy
An invasion, revelation, the end is unfolding
Raining horror from the heavens

Alien bodies filled with demons, they’ve always been one in the same
Flood waters vanquished men the first time, now they all will burn in flames

Trinity of evil from the skies, not from the earth
The valley of megiddo, give rise to the great wars birth

Exalt, extol, magnify
All hail, worship with reverence, or die

Lo-Ruhamah, armageddon, there will be no mercy
An invasion, revelation, the end is unfolding
Raining horror from the heavens

This is the end of the earth that exists now
The first must fall to be reformed
Hand painted by the greatest artist
Throughout the vast multiverse

Follow the deceiver
Into his hell, enthralled
To the true believer
Your covenant with death can be annulled

Just fall into the universes embrace
No need to cling to life, death has no sting

Their flesh shall be consumed while standing on their feet
Their tongues disintegrated inside their very mouths

The sun and moon are darkened, and all the stars withdrawn
When he decides to end it, the light will blind you all

Lo-Ruhamah, armageddon, there will be no mercy
An invasion, revelation, the end is unfolding

Exalt, extol, magnify
All hail, worship with reverence, or die
Raining horror from the heavens

Contrivance of a fiendish swan song
Will be constricted and constrained
For when the trumpet begins sounding
So begins the millennial reign
11. Lo-Ruhamah 04:42
