flightoficarus (Metal Trenches) Sentient Ignition really likes to take neoclassical guitar melodies and feed them through a death metal wood chipper. The result is a super shreddy, proggy mess of raging hooks and technical drumming somewhere between Gladius Sky and Vektor; but with a different take on the vocals.

Joel Really great progressive melodeath with some tech flourishes. Their music draws from old and new, combining modern sensibilities with some older-school tones & themes - ones that you don't often hear from metal today. The result is unpredictable, but never inconsistent in quality or creativity. Favorite track: A Thousand Ages.

wayne-the-devil Pretty damn ambitious album. Multiple vocal styles, a dictionary of riffage and a ton of Tech/Prog going on here. Does it work? Yes....yes indeed. Favorite track: Black Lattice.

Track Name: Enthroned In Gray
So,
fades the sun it dips you in black
pales the earth as it coats suffocating..suffocating
all the light encrypted to stains
we're enthroned in the gray

insipid yee, most faithless
Aggregate Pain

Paranoid ways
Paralyzed Gaze
Part in all faith
Plays your heart strings

the dark became
the only way
to reconcile
the space between

pry open those eyes
you have never even seen the face of
the logic you'd attempt to defy
starved in the moonlight
you have never even seen the face of
the dead star you've romanced your whole life
by unbound hands they'll flourish

Gritted gaze to tear you open
Welted tongue to lick inside
Urgent, its lashing frenzy
Begs to settle, coincides
Gutted all of what you once were
Soiling what you glorified
Little visions all descending
unable to quantify

breathe yee
sage of men
reap the sorrow sewn
by fold ten
breathe yee
sage of men
celestial consequence
by fold ten

pry open those eyes
you have never even seen the face of
the logic you'd attempt to defy
starved in the moonlight
you have never even seen the face of
the dead star you've romanced your whole life
you are part of a whole that is not part of self
Track Name: Black Lattice
Become,

We're as the nights says... Reborn

Behold the blackened pyres
The scorched remains of our retreat
Through fueled savage desires
our future halts admits defeat

Your new way of life is our gift

Black Lattice of bone descends
Fractures off, releasing from the skin
To pale the once fair flesh
our champions cacophony

the space Between the ruptures

Grind our bones to paste
pave the streets with what we were
temper our fates with the steel
that will seal yours

Grinning and beating
the life from
the meaning
subtle and pitied
to rend on your flesh
Grinning and beating the life from the starving
pool of abandon
a plot just to save your pathetic soul

They are lab rats bleached and lifeless
yields yee nothing here
Amass forces forced to backstab
blaze the dawn before the night
illuminates our butcher
Troves of motion now lay heartless
exsanguinates with bitter cold
withdraws what force was wrought, foretold
Troves of motion now lay heartless
exsanguinates with bitter cold
withdraws what force was wrought, foretold

Believe in nothing driven to
offer all of what we do not have
Dreaming a life that was not full of this wicked morning
all around me
falls all around me the husks of our brethren
stifles the sound of the rattling before me again
Track Name: A Thousand Ages
screaming eyes of the raptor
though there is little to see
it's decaying pestilent breath
retains the life of souls consumed it
needs a new form of suffering
to leech fresh fear and siphon out the tales
a thousand ages, the ageless face steeled
the core of malice growing bloated with contempt
the constructs of all malcontents to amplify and further this disease

wretched gifted the whole world fucking prays for death
wretched gifted the whole world lays at the feet of the damned

SATURATE IN ADORATION

rise and walk and sweat, shed blood into a funnel of deceit,
Intrinsically Voracious haunts the shadows of weak
it's always perched just there behind you patiently it waits
Amber wing beats the winds of hell to the rhythm of our fates

SATURATE IN ADORATION

if your last breath was a sunset..
see all the colors?
could you bathe as the avian can?
saturates the sky withered of our race

wretched & gifted, your whole world prays for death
wretched & the whole world lays at the feet of the damned

SATURATES IN ADORATION
Track Name: Grasp of the Infinite
Bold and of iron will
the sun will set against his back
as he claims yet another life
in honor of his god

Veins pulse, are colder still

the broken husk of where a king once stood

this massacre

Reaching for some form of coherence
hopelessly grasping at nothing
in the face of the Icon's eye

once sought treasures turn to dust
built
to fail as all of his kin before he
Blight.
Onwards, bound for the gates

Reaching for some form of coherence
hopelessly grasping at nothing
in the face of the Icon's eye

once sought treasures turn to dust
built
to fail as all of his kin before he

With Eyes ablaze
he waded forever

to feel the grasp of the infinite
sea
and by that yearning
was caught in the riptide

and flayed down to bone by the terrors beneath

the sting of sweat as the flesh frees from confines
dissolves the bonds of his biology,
stirs in terror
the crack of a smile
words of the prophet are finally free

A fractured

form of consciousness

Seething with the need to be apart of the kill

Fragment farmed

Bit of selfishness

Helplessly watching what He once was dissolve

Woven around the life's that he has lead

Circled round the Parts of him undying

Stripped it all away...No notions of self

Deplorable facades, burn in the winds of all creation
Track Name: Wardens of Intellect
Burning down the walls
That gate the distance between us
Sworn to traverse the breach
of fears that lie ahead
Behold the new apocalypse
We're Basking in the glow
Find warmth beside the burning corpses of what you have known

Oh careless shepherds we
Of this global catastrophe
Our home she lays in ruin
Through fears that we have wrought

Great Apes, you strive toward hate
You fear most precious things
Depraved deep roots entwined
Draws near your reckoning.

Seek not the apothecaries
They hold no cures
Starved by the Wardens of Intellect
Our mental drought a way of life
Now

Great Apes, you strive toward hate
You fear most precious things
Depraved deep roots entwined
Draws near your reckoning.

We don't dig the graves
We simply lay in them
We don't dig the Graves
We simply lay in them
Starved by the Wardens of Intellect
Our mental drought a way of life

Say you need
Such disharmony
To substantiate
The pain
We all know

We don't dig the graves
We simply lay in them
Starved by the wardens of intellect
Our mental drought a way of life

Fight.
Track Name: Binding Time
digging in
the structures
crumble away
to reveal the past

digging in
the nails break from flesh
failing to capture
the history it breathes
reeling as you take it in
the sight the smell of an eon of rot
Find the centuries unfold before you
and with them the cycles of life as they bind time together
Mind the taste of the fortune you seek
it will be your undoing
your captive mind of the meek
It's not your fault
you were born to this
when you seek reprieve
your right to choose resolves
Tempted as most humans are
escape the cage of this flesh reveals a distant purpose
is it like me ,will it apologize?
to gate your opinion again
corrupted smiles of martyrs given down your path to damnation
self destructed
fled, made mockery of our fight
it's not your fault
you were born to this
when you seek reprieve
your right to choose resolves
Felled a life to satiate the witch.
barring hope all non believers
what she is, isn’t glorified, what remains?

Delay, closing a part of me.

give in the feeling its recking and reeling upon you its stealing the life that you never had
give in the feeling its recking and reeling upon you its stealing the life that you never had and in the end you'll become...

Delay, closing a part of me.

Even now you say,
down you came.
"why don’t you lay there in fear...
just like your design."
