AlexP Big thanks to Gideon for the code. 🙏🙏
Du black art de très haut niveau: écriture incroyable, maîtrise instrumentale, production, tout est d'orfèvre. La voix ne doit pas être oubliée: elle est compréhensive et pleine de personnalité (élément souvent faible dans beaucoup de groupes).
Cet album intense est un voyage garanti dans l'immensité.

SmokingKookaburra Got this album, went outside on a Xmas eve evening to look at the sky (there is an almost full moon) and set it to play on my headphones. This is a magnificent soundtrack to enjoy this majestic universe above us. Favorite track: The Blinding Might of Creation.

codylikesmusic Incredibly underrated atmo-black. One of my favorite metal albums of 2023.
That fucking "chorus" of "With Starlight" never fails to give me goosebumps. Favorite track: With Starlight in Our Eyes.

I can certainly feel the blinding might of creation on this album.
Been waiting 5 years and this did not disappoint.
Truly beautiful and ferocious cosmic black metal.

Blazing beginning Primordial dawn Resplendent in grandeur Provenance of all A flicker of a moment Existence unleashed A sequence set in motion Unfurling from the deep The blinding might of creation Disturbing the mystical void Infernal conflagration Configurations and chaos deployed Symphony of light Materialise Waves upon waves Reverberate and divide Dark aeons echo by Gravitations and time In the heart of the night Ancestral stars ignite Celestial furnaces loom, new elements arise Forged in stellar wombs, the substances of minds From cataclysmic tombs, they cast the seeds of life Their legacies abloom in sidereal light The blinding might of creation Disturbing the mystical void Infernal constellations Shine, sow, sprawl

Scions of the seas With soil upon our limbs From a crawl we rise With starlight in our eyes Ancient divinities Howl above and within Our ways on walls inscribed With starlight in our eyes To tame the earth We harness the wilds and cycles once mystery Cultivating births and their feats From word to stone Our knowledge persists through our mortalities Inheriting from bones and from dreams The ages pass We conquer, we gather, we observe as moons go by From cold and fire to farms, and to flight The heavens wide The final frontier, we reach for the skies With starlight in our eyes Awakening To wonders from afar Beckoning The heralds of the past In sequential fleets The exodus sets off To sow and colonise With starlight in our eyes Unravelling Explorers of the vast Wandering The scions of the stars

I saw their vision across the stars vast empires proliferate to systems far Suffered have I throughout millennia Surrendered the mind to sophic oblivion I gaze into the sapien shadow Peripheral currents coursing through marrow No longer of human condition The fate of all life still extinction Still captive within the eternal And everything moulders infernal From beyond the cosmic birth To beyond the conscious mind More than the legacy of life on earth But inceptual seeds echoing through time From microbes to vertebrates From wayfarers to starsteppers Divergent branches progenerate To the outermost stars intrepid The onset of time’s decay and dust On the worlds we’ve left behind A harrowing and inevitable dusk Upon the weary eyes of our kind With void unending before us Starless and open beneath We fall into an ocean enormous An anticlimactic defeat The cosmic dice are rolling Not cubic but spherical Abyssal giants approaching These monkeys need a miracle Like lemmings engulfed by the billions Hypoxic en masse ebullisms A black hole lives up to its purpose And all we endured, was it worthless?

Omniscient 09:02
The final form of life Heir of matter and might Keeper of eternal archives Omniscient sum of knowledge and time Tendrils extend beyond galactic shores Arteries radial with nowhere left unexplored Once insurmountable distances intertwined Networks infinite embody the overmind Interdimensional consciousness Descendant of crafted intelligence Empyreal wisdom watches through aeons Interconnected in elegance Hyphal starlit galactic web Mystical pathways of light Radiate through boundless black Forging through eternal night Filamental firmament Ethereal, mycelial Neuronal in its nature Links of light sidereal Strands and streams of stars Clear and crystalline Seas of matter Light and dark The cosmic web alive Time stretched beyond meaning The freeze sets in slow Aeons of emptiness unending The last lights cease to glow The era of starlight is over The sequence in full has been run Even black holes fade out forever The age of existence is done
