Grimmrobe A vicious, exhausting display of raw talent. Krallice does it again. Favorite track: Retrogenesis.

silenceeater Finally Krallice has stepped out from behind the wall of noise and while still being lo-fi you can make out all the brilliant riffs of all members. The inclusion of Dave E. is masterful. This is my favorite record of theirs by far! Favorite track: Loüm.

blbthabeast This album is relentless from start to finish! As a fan of both Krallice and Neurosis this collaboration fires on all cylinders for me. It's mathy, chaotic, heavy, catchy and grindy all at the same time. Dave's vocals fit perfectly and add punch with that signature apocalyptic bellow. This is an incredible album that must be owned!

Matthew Wilkes Third listen and I’m definitely liking this album a lot! The heaviest Krallice album yet, in my opinion. Sometimes I can’t tell if I’m listening to Krallice, Gorguts, Dysrhythmia, Behold...The Arctopus, or an entirely new band. It’s fkn killer, so definitely no complaints. I love how these musical collaborators who come together to form Krallice continue to evolve and challenge their listeners. Dave Edwardson’s vocals are fkn beast. The tracks are complicated and dizzying and heavy as hell. This is a killer fkn album. That’s it. Long gone are the days of Krallice, Dimensional Bleedthrough, and Diotima. I still love those albums, but we’ve blazed forward without looking back. “Where we’re going, we don’t need roads..” favorite track is probably Kronus Deposed. Favorite track: Kronus Deposed.

Track Name: Etemenanki
Etemenanki
music initiate: CM
words: DE, NM


Consciousness resuming at a deeper level
Forgotten realms remembered, false constructs revealed
Unhindered reflexive intuition, abstract insights: revelations
Scrape away the mundane dross

Glimpsing higher insights
Trusted self reflections - gnostic introspection

Buried deep and hidden inside, we feel the truth but hear the lie 
The self deceit, our thoughts clouded by fear and doubt

Lost in a world of confusion, disillusioned
Deluded into disbelief of our own nature
The voice inside is speaking but we’re deaf to it

Lying to ourselves, lie to each other
Hiding from ourselves
Hiding from the other, empathy is smothered
Distrust one another
War in our minds, wars in the world

In this flesh prison
drive to supersede
in endless ego

As if every synapse struck out to rule,
to be king.
Track Name: Rank Mankind
Rank Mankind
music initiate: CM
words: DE


Little man is rank mankind
Common people’s worthless lives

Little man, you’re useless to me
I hate you, you have no value
Here to serve the likes of me

Businesses built on your backs and your toil
Fills the pockets of those with hands too good to touch the soil

Rank Mankind x 4

Stuck in this game of their creation
They made the rules and declared themselves the winners

We bought and sold your dreams since before you took your first breath
We’ve owned you since your birth, and we’ll own you ’til your death
Our power is immutable, we are the modern kings
And we’ll always have a piece of you you’re all just our playthings
We are the secret masters and you are our slaves
Track Name: Retrogenesis
Retrogenesis
music initiate: NM
words: DE


Static regression, a life maligning force
Entropic stagnation, continuous decline
Global demise is encroaching
Eternal capitulation

Progress reversed 
De-evolution, no absolution
Zero sum solution

Building and building and building towards what? 

Retrogenesis

A kingdom of fools ruled by a tyranny of greedy bastards
Exaggerated fears gives them their power through division

Retrogenesis x 4
Track Name: Loüm
Loüm
music initiate: MB
words: DE


Loüm the giant black obelisk stands before me
Nothing left behind, nowhere but forward
No way to go forward but up, up
The mighty wall seems to touch the sky
There’s no way around, or stay and die

The forces behind me are drawing ever closer
No choice left, I must climb the ancient black monolith

Climbing, climbing, ever higher
Foothold by small foothold
Careful not to fall from the growing heights
Making haste to escape what lies below

Feeling the presence of evil nearing its way toward me
Ascending the titan Loüm is the only path to sanctuary

Half-awake, half-dead, exhausted and half-crazed
Has this crossing been hours or has it been days? 
Hungry, tired, in a trance, yet I must push on 
With bloody hands and feet and knees I near the crest of Loüm
As this odyssey nears its close I fear what lies beyond
Track Name: Kronus Deposed
Kronus Deposed
music initiate: CM
words: DE, MB


Distrust, fear
Separation is the division that binds us
Broken minds in a distorted world, out of balance
Incongruous and tenuous

The fear that permeates this world is a sickness
A plight on mankind, a blight to our world

This monstrosity of creation moves forth
Earth constantly threatens
Age constantly beckons

The looming is beyond tangible
