rocky1369000 This album is a beautiful experience of the suffering of cattle. This album, like the monolith itself, lives! Phobos et Deimos Eternatus!

Saturnine Splendid in its ability to consistently bestow a feeling of travel; anticipation and excitement that only in the midst of a newfound journey one would feel.
It is also cosmic atmospheric BM par-excellence. Support these makers of benevolent music in these malevolent times. Favorite track: Noumenon.

Jem Newlyn Atmospheric, cacophonous, and occasionally even darkly psychedelic, this is EXACTLY what I wanted when I went looking for something exotic and extreme on Bandcamp today. Great stuff. Favorite track: Entropic Hallucinations.

Descend infinite dream An unconscious revelation Light and sibilance blend as one An eternal mind observes its own birth Piercing to the core Boring into nether An endless reversal of bending time Swirling neurons into infinite worlds A skyward gaze is met With a host of peering eyes whose stoic glares bequeath the moon, Repeating ever softly verses of alchemic truth All transfigured into eons Cascade into brilliant shards Disperse unto the cosmos Weaving a single thread And bringing eternal eclipse Ascend infinite dream An unconscious revelation Light and sibilance blend as one An eternal mind observes its own death Time stretches the thread of dreams And echoes forth into renewal An unwavering litany of tides Infinitely, Boundlessly A skyward gaze is met With a host of peering eyes whose stoic glares bequeath the moon, Repeating ever softly verses of alchemic truth All transfigured into eons Piercing to the core Boring into nether

Rise Bear witness to the astral chaos Echoing within your once-sacred halls Heat embracing Endless horizon Light, a curse In ailing landscapes Not unlike a bleeding wound A festered scab wrought with disease Sky agape Miasmic windows Whispered though Obscure dimensions A landscape withering in the clutch of an arthritic pale grasp Tremorous hands grasping for Once-held brilliant suns of endless luster Now an ailing mass of blight Repugnant in their hideous forms Carrying a blinding plague To unleash upon barren earth Futility in endless struggle Driven by unconscious reason An incredible weight such as this Is a planet drifting in empty space Devoid of kindling and ash The plague is never born And yet it scours the landscape With unspoken splendor Anxious molding of the clay Into the image of Sisyphus Heat embracing Endless horizon Light, a curse In ailing landscapes Not unlike a bleeding wound A festered scab wrought with disease Sky agape Miasmic windows Whispered though Obscure dimensions A landscape withering in the clutch of an arthritic pale grasp

Noumenon 13:07
A brilliant scarlet dawn has conquered the night In elegant mystery it swallows the sky Crudely blemishing the ivory clouds Encasing daylight in savage grandeur This aurora fills my lungs and takes me to another time Into the memory of a dream never dreamed Senses blurred into a mesh of cacophonic disarray Free of mind, I am a crashing wave Into the passing of time I become The birth of aeons passes through me Heliotropic manifestations Omnipresent revelations All that was and ever will be Congeals into singularity Before me the tide rises Drowning the life unlived And in one moment The waves wash into light At once I return to a place of rest My flooded memory recoils in awe It finds deceit in its own perception An experience lost on human senses Crumbled remnants of these visions Pieced together in shameful bewilderment They remain stained forever grey A final monument to the failures of man Into the passing of time I become The birth of aeons passes through me Heliotropic manifestations Omnipresent revelations All that was and ever will be Congeals into singularity I leave them at the shores And so too my body Unburdened by the shackles of reality Immanent within all existences Reborn into infant suns And formless planets of endless day A nameless form hanging between dimensions A mind needs not hold the words any longer Before me the tide rises Drowning the life unlived And in one moment The waves wash into light

Multidimensional storm Disturbing galactic balance Primordial coalescence Fusion of primal essence Hypnotic dirge molds Shapeless malformation Amorphous amalgamation Tempest of infinite scale A new dawn forms Reciprocal beginnings Necromantic screams Calamitous rebirth Multicosmic disarray Despondent conceptions Bastard sons begotten of Malevolent masters Contorted visages Twisted and warped Clinging for shelter In shallow tombs Forlorn children With outstretched hands Clutch the remains Of a corroded temple Fractal galaxies emerge from the void Glorious spiraling cipher Kaleidoscopic omnipresence Forging the sands of time Into wretched worlds A glorious futility Extinction Stretching beyond all time Multidimensional genocide Reflections Of infinite parallel lives A hall of blackened mirrors Begin upheaval Promise malignant Vow silence Breathe visions Fading suns Primal moons Fears breed Ends eternal The dawn sleeps A radiant calm Serpentine dimensions Interspersing light Now draped In bloodied robes And surrendering Their scarred veins Denied existence By time’s gaze Trembling within The purest darkness Awaiting exile To forgotten wastelands A glorious suffering A miserable solace Fractal galaxies emerge from the void Glorious spiraling cipher Kaleidoscopic omnipresence Forging the sands of time Into wretched worlds A glorious futility Extinction Stretching beyond all time Multidimensional genocide Reflections Of infinite parallel lives A hall of blackened mirrors Countless ghostly manifestations crawl beneath the void Doomed to wander the endless seas of ethereal murk Ensnared within the incessant cycle of eternal birth Led deeper by the hollow stream of eternity This dying soul foretold in ancient prophecy, a ruined monolith to the hopes of nature, collapses under the weight of its own breath, its last gasps blaring into a sickening cry A senseless loss

_____________________

Based in Santa Ana, California, MARE COGNITUM is one of the leading forces in the progressive black metal field. The band's sole member, Jacob Buczarski has already proven his capabilities on his first two full-length releases - "The Sea Which Has Become Known" (2011) and "An Extraconscious Lucidity" (2012) - as well as on a revelatory conceptual split with Spectral Lore, "Sol" (2013).

Since then, the American musician has refined his songwriting and production skills even more, and is ready to offer his third transcendental voyage through the cosmic regions of black metal.

"Phobos Monolith" is an observation on the cold mysteries of space, on the origin of Life and on its ephemeral nature. In the saddle of wild riffs and majestic melodies, MARE COGNITUM travel fast with unbridled rage and melancholic abandon through colorful galaxies and placid sea of stars, to reach the boundaries of the Universe and enter the eternal abysses of Nothingness... And there they rest, finally at home.
