Tim McLelland Cannot get any more complimentary of this band ... generally I like my Prog on the more standard side, which means not super-long songs. However, this one is different ... he keeps it interesting throughout this and the following disc. Also, his voice is AMAZING and unique for this kind of music, love it. Fantastic stuff that I cannot recommend enough. Favorite track: Chimerical Visions.

Pluincéid Seriously, there is not a bad song on this album. I've listened to it numerous times and still find it thoroughly enjoyable. IMHO, this album deserves to stand proudly right next to their second album, Descender.

Deej How did I overlook this beauty? Perfect mix of prog, clean vocals, and solid guitar work.

Jeremy Wallach Not enough people know about the small but dedicated Puerto Rican metal scene. This prog metal outfit is one of the best of an extraordinary cohort. Standout Tracks: “Remembrance” and “Threshold.”

xbigpoppadx Just awesome music. No details, it's either good, or it isn't, and this is GOOD! Favorite track: Threshold of Evolution.

With time We lost ourselves within these reveries So blind To never see The signs Of how our horizons fall beneath our feet You and I Transcending the divide

All that we have sowed in life Shall have died From the drought in our minds That form impassable rinds A land scathed By the suspension of belief In a higher state of being Buried inside a dream In the last portion of this promised land Fate finds the last surviving hand That holds the fire that began this evolution And a bleeding heart that demands restitution Will you choose to vaguely follow The ones that crossed the thoughtless voids That silenced their voice Or will you shed your skin So callow and let your reason flow Let it bleed from out of your soul In the last portion of this promised land Fate finds the last surviving hand That holds the fire that began this evolution And a bleeding heart that demands restitution Experience a sensible regrowth A re-evolution at your core As it emanates into the world (Feel your mind as it unfurls) The suspension of belief Shattered by the fundamental reasoning of this Human experience (Doubt turned into confidence) See the labors of a man Who truly now understands Where it is that in this sphere he stands (Treading further into ancient lands) Replanting the seeds of our creation Not needing mystic revelations To understand that at our journey’s end Our true test begins

I have seen the world through eyes unpunished I have felt the touch of god in my mind's eye I have breathed an air so pure I was ravished I have heard the anguish of those bleeding full of sin I have felt the stones of those who won’t accept I have gazed beyond these walls through heaven's parapet I have heard the whispers of divinely secrets I have touched those sacred words now carved into my chest Staring into the morning light Searching in the rays of the sun For answers hidden from the night A path to redemption But now the fear has begun to set in All strings have been cut and let loose from this mortal coil Visions of what could have been And finally ends all the doubt That I will ever be able to cure And like a martyr I end this life's bout I have felt the movement of time within my soul I have seen the attributes of God in nature’s mold I have nurtured many questions and answered manifold I have known myself to be a finitely ordered mode I have looked my world and found a truth so bright That echoes in these white halls filling all with dread and fright I will preach the truth to all in the shadow of the night I will remove from this world all the demons and their blight But now the fear has begun to set in All strings have been cut and let loose from this mortal coil Visions of what could have been And finally ends all the doubt That I will ever be able to cure And like a martyr I end this life's bout Watch the light as it flows Upon the rivers of our mind and into the unknown The void of all sacrificed And past memories Of those brave souls who came denied before me Into this hollow dream which burned the effigies Of angel eyes who came to see and bleed To speak their words for us to heed and seek A new beginning to life's endless bleak And guide us through into eternity The tongue of seraphim will you now speak Visions that glisten becoming clearer With each pill I swallow further Close my eyes

Open the door and the sun will break Specters in reveries Stalking souls to take Innocence subsided and divided Into darkness bleak As the shadows cover the mountains peak I drink from the waters that flow down the mountainous vain I follow the light that glows the broken path of wise men that left the stain Of their weary feet as they walk into their last life in temples that cry The piper that sings the same song to their farewell bids me welcome into this world

Spread like a poison coursing through a million veins From its morrow to its crown killing all within its hearth An omnipresent movement through the artery of life A synchronized destruction silently alar a million lies And all the while a resistance rises to oppose the vile Pushing onward for this cold world to reconcile 900 branches stemming from the tree of death Layering in shadows all the lands where they have tread Fallen leaves the symbols of this oh so imminent threat Looming like the sword of Damocles above our heads And all the while a resistance rises to oppose the vile Pushing onward for this cold world to reconcile A crimson trail leading the way out of this hell Here I stand on hidden graves upon this land Of the first to bite the feeding hand and to get off their knees Of the first to spill their blood on sand and to no more tyrants heed Watch as we rise From ashes to fight To defend our reasons light Our purpose you will never blind

Floating through both space and time Lost within my mind Feeling gravity take its place On its rational find Sailing through a sea of stars Spiritual vessels are what we are Embedded in this well of seclusion Idle in timeless restitution Now I feel the burdens of the past Weighing me down to earth No more confined to these reveries A phantom pilot without a hearth No more suns to serve as curtains To a faceless identity Lying hopeless in Material supremacy The soul is formed From an outward spiral The spiral towards our infinity A consciousness Interweaving With the universal mentality Reaching beyond these greater expectations A physical emancipation A mind healed by concentration Hope weaved into full realization Reaching that state of conscience That turns me into light/no more will I fight With my corporeal ties As I extend my hand to the star kissed sky And to their laws now do I

Walking beyond this unnaturally crumbling gate Under a Moon that never wanes I perceive roses that wither with every passing day A garden floor strewn with petals of stories never told Of lives never to unfold Silent caresses no heart will ever hold Seething with anger at the decay that I see Waiting on justice for the guilty to bleed To thrust them away from their timeless reveries Dawn shaping the advent of what is to be Of silent deaths and quietly spoken decrees These are the souls of remembrance With every rose there’s a story to tell Past memories that now agelessly dwell (memory) (dwells) Beneath a sea of ruins and waves of heart shaped shells Drowning voices within a wishing well I hear the desperate cries below Descending further more into the unknown Scaling the walls with heartened tones Only to be sunk by voices yet unshown Trapped inside walls of ash and stone Paying tribute solely to skull and bones Revenants that arise with scornful tones Decaying remnants of all these broken homes With every rose there’s a story to tell Past memories that now agelessly dwell Awaiting their time with each toll of the bells Or for a savior / A deliverance from this hell Twice the great monoliths rise above clouds Spiraling towers of both fear and doubt Chastising all who oppose their devout Dark eyes that see all who enter and leave This garden of grief that to death serves as eve Watchful guardians remain unseen Fear traps me inside of myself Paralyzing my clarity’s health Chanting words of wealth and greed Self-knowledge shall forever set me free With every rose there’s a story to tell Past memories that now agelessly dwell Beneath a sea of ruins and waves of heart shaped shells Drowning voices no fire can easily quell Burnt eyes that trace my every move I favor dying souls with living boons As I make my way in full lit moon Fog ridden paths through murk and gloom Reaching my sanctuary’s hold Far from the Goliaths whisperings uncontrolled No more will I ever mourn The disembodied bellows of the sworn With every rose there’s a story to tell Past memories that once agelessly dwelled No longer awaiting the toll of the bells Or for a savior / A deliverance from this hell See the man Planting roses beside a riverbank Hoping to find A way to Revive their lives Torn by those so vile Who saw them as simple means to find An unjust end to another lie But as promised justice made its call To make them bleed And from their blood new life came to be

about

Hey guys,

So, after a few years working on my album, it is finally ready to be released, and so released it is! Went through quite a few hiccups in the recording of it, to the point where this last version is actually the third iteration of it. I scrapped four songs from this definitive version, which I will release at some point as “b-sides.”
