Ippocalyptica Fans of great and adventurous death metal, rejoice, for Sutrah is back! The eastern influence in Sutrah’s music is not gimmicky, and adds significant variety and depth to what are already robust and dense compositions. Technical death metal is often sterile, but this feels alive, and the value of this cannot be overstated in 2020. I am also happy to see that Kevin Paradis is back, as his thunderous kit work helps ground the proceedings from becoming too esoteric. Do not sleep on this!

bbourgon Dunes is absolutely a top five Death Metal album of all time. A new album is the best news I've heard all year. The first track appears to keep up the solid quality started on Dunes. Can't wait for more!

Track Name: Variation I.ii - Lethe
The clearing light descries the horizon
of a world liberated from judgment
Mute and blind, unspoken and unconcealed
Such is grace, such is chaos
In which words, which words uncertain
Ephemeral and incestuous
Released from form, unwoven yet undisclosed
No longer deny us meaning and salvation

The clearing after all is darkness gone
Toil and toil and foil against abyss
Words begone

I for an I, now see me, from within
Toil and toil and moil towards a bliss
Worlds become

...estrangement in vision, deception in its telling
Reflection counterfeits radiance, Aegis of
my Being only human, frail and in need
To feel its warmth, but not its wrath
Truth lies, in the safety of its shield

The question remains,
What compels the worm that feels no pain?

The king is gone, the tower is crumbling
The children unseeing, bastards of truth
Lashing out, a faceless saviour in promising
Hasn't the light set us free?

I am Being eternal

The city ablaze, no matter
I am salvation! I am peace! unyielding
Flow unto thy flames, searing skin
Glowing, the world unbecoming
These words sworn to my fealty

I am being unto light
The clearing is me
Unconcealed

Masks once unveiled avow no face
no body... nobody

Baring light shows darkness conquered within
Toil and toil and foil against abyss
Words begone

Aye! you’re not I, your word is alien and cruel
Toil and toil and moil towards our bliss
Worlds become

...death enthralled
