Johnn Harbringer This band is a breath of fresh air as far as doom metal is concerned. The progressive and jazz elements are a nice touch. Definitely something worth listening to if you're looking for something different. Picked up the CD due to the brilliant album artwork. I hope they put this out on vinyl at some point! Favorite track: Outpour I. II. III..

Track Name: Earth is a Whisper
Closer... Imminent demise
Space and timne mash up and intertwine
Romancing a revolution
Evolving to slice through
Romancing a revolution

Take a rounded core
And shape it with molten cleavers
Shifting through patterns
An axis undefined

Height and weight, volume
Surface and thickness
Whipped up like putty
And dripping all the same
Shifting through patterns, an axis undefined

Songs of their sons and song of their fathers

This time is done, their time is done
Glory and gold buried between realms
Who dug this up, what have you done?
Track Name: Relationships Deteriorate
This place remains the same, despite change
No frequencies and no vibration

This place remains untouched
Unmoved, vast and continentless

Odorless, boundless, void of infestation
Molecular gestation and predation are

Vast and odorless, boundless
Void of infestation

Molecular gestation, the rarity
Greeted only by cycles of extinction
Selection has never and will never
Favor this infestation
Track Name: Outpour I. II. III.
Forsaken - This place forsaken
Comfortless - Barren and bleak, cannot rely
Comfortless - Stay ritual, stay radiant

Jettisoned purposefully, in its wake, where it lies
Crafted for greatness, measured only by

Gifted for greatness, destined for the impossible
Gifted to the concept of its own God
Fortuitously, but chosen for imminent demise

Uncompromising and shadowless
A vast nothingness

Smoke and debris
Seize the surroundings
Now time is all that's left


Slow and cold, silence stifled by stillness
Sterility, no change in gradual dependency
Cosmically, truthfully, factually
and entirely alone

Relativity would enamor the loneliest stone
Predestined specification has and will show
Dimorphism was never an option
For this shall exist and is self-sustained

Stretch gas, dust and light
Across the deep and the dark
