Alex Jean I'm quite hard to satisfy in terms of raw black metal, but Auri did! Both the intro and the outro, which are instrumental, are a nice addition to the other two songs. These guys have a lot of potential! Favorite track: Regressions of the Seeker and Vision.

Cooper Stapleton Was an honor to be able to play on this. It turned out so well. Here's to the next one! Favorite track: Regressions of the Seeker and Vision.
Galen Stapley

Galen Stapley Abrasive, oppressive heaviness and dissonance and raw emotion without compromising on memorable and interesting musical ideas. Plenty of contrast throughout. Really, very good black metal. Favorite track: The Crown of Doubt.

Track Name: Regressions of the Seeker and Vision
Cry umbra! Cry strength!
My bones are rust
On an ashen frame,
They fed the desert
where I've slept for an age,
Nursing the embers
That were once flames,
I greet you through mountains passed
Where shadows depart,
And all is left are gold silhouettes
From the place where
Light sears the flesh,
And blinds the soul

Enrich my vision, radiant seer;
Ignite my essence!

A shrouded magus,
Who visited my dominion of dreams,
Judged me in silence,
My fear did fleetingly gleam
The lust for knowing oneself once again,
A tyrant I could be,
Seeking the secrets of ascension,
To take what I will with authority,
Now XIII become my dimension
To escape spiritual poverty

There is no failure,
Only limitation,
Imposed by
The critical self,
For want of progress,
Delusions in guises
Of goals and masteries,
When all is motion,
Momentum, Stillness,
Or Stagnation.

Into darkness,
Beyond solitude;
Terror!
All stimuli perceived as threat,
A consequence of,
The prison of flesh,
Abused through manifest,
Self denigration

The feeling is gone.
Track Name: The Crown of Doubt
I, empowered
Have spoken to the Deep
Have sought the essence of Man
Now..
With you as my attestants,
Hear my volition

Long have I,
Converse as demons,
Unknowns, yet familiar
Bearing the lowest form
Of madness;
The crown of doubt
Doubt made flesh,
And at my weakest
You made me,
Nothing.

Shine, radiant star!
Blind, and cleave destiny,
Rise, King in exile!
Dominate, their flesh
and..
Master their hearts!

In eyes, I have seen
The fear of ego,
From tongues, I have heard
Malice and slander,
In hearts, I have felt
Jealousy.

Destroyer,
I become you!
Now witness the might of my Will,
And perish in the brilliance of my flame.

On my flesh,
On my soul,
Hear my curse;
You shall fall.

I call upon the master of the Night, the herald of Sol; I am She, and He is in my self. We become the embodiment of the XIII.
