______________________________

MARE COGNITUM's debut album, “The Sea Which Has Become Known”, was originally released via Bandcamp in 2011 as a digital album, and one year later as a tape on Milam Records, but it needed a split release with label mates SPECTRAL LORE (“Sol”, 2013) and three more full-length albums (“An Extraconscious Lucidity” in 2012, 2014's revelatory “Phobos Monolith” and 2016's crowning achievement of “Luminiferous Aether”) to finally impose Jacob Buczarski's project on the metal audience as a true originator and leading exponent of the so called atmospheric/cosmic black metal genre, together with bands like Darkspace and Midnight Odyssey.

Before embarking on new space adventures, MARE COGNITUM proudly offer their fans their first opus on CD and LP format and in its unadulterated form, to preserve the spirit of the original recordings. “The Sea Which Has Become Known” is as relevant today as it was more than 6 years ago; the first significant step in MARE COGNITUM's voyage towards the stars.

Track Name: Internal Deliquescence
Weary spirits
Revealed presence

Between the wind
Coiled in thorns

Long have they dwelled
In solitude
Awakened, troubled by
Dreams

Impudent worms
Breed corruption
Grows within

Fester inside
Distorted mind
Track Name: A Vain Lament
My soul
Lost in frozen wastelands
My vision blurs
My blood runs cold
I fade, cast up into the sky

This mind stretched into boundless infinity
I am no longer chained to flesh
Witnessing unfathomable darkness
Paths of stars cross in and out of view
I march through the mouth of the nether realm
Obscured by clouds, luminous fragments
I feel the weight of the cosmos
Before me an apparition
Petrified I flee
I seek refuge
But why?

Surrounded by lifelessness and ignorance
I give myself to the sea of stars

Witnessing unfathomable darkness
Paths of stars cross in and out of view
I march through the mouth of the nether realm
To observe the brilliance of the never-ending void

Obscured by clouds, luminous fragments
Of exhausted time
I feel the weight of the cosmos
Bearing on my soul

Dreams of life, they race through my vision
Like phantoms surrounding my grave of ice

I return to the void of nonexistence
I become one with the specter
Our wills become one
“Welcome”, I am told.

“Rest your mind.”
I give up my soul and the shadows take part in me
I cannot even choose to regret
Track Name: Vehement Coalescence
Luminous web of bones
Sing chorus of catastrophe
Woe within the once serene
Dimensional singularity

Coaxial dimensions collide
Bleed upon themselves
Open into blackness
Void rips into void
Spread across the bleak
Chasm of the indwelling
Seared and threshed
Melted into consciousness

Negation
Of time
Reversal
Of matter

And within this catastrophe
Another cosmos will be born
Refined in chaos and purified in death
The child consumes its mother
Luminous web of bones
Sing chorus of catastrophe
Woe within the once serene

Coaxial dimensions collide
Bleed upon themselves
Open into blackness
Void rips into void
Spread across the bleak
Chasm of the indwelling
Seared and threshed
Melted into consciousness

Negation
Of time
Reversal
Of matter

Luminous web of bones
Sing chorus of catastrophe
Woe within the once serene
Dimensional singularity
Track Name: Lustrate
Thunderous discord
An encroaching presence
Thoughts left to die

Weeping, burning my home
Forgetting what once was held
Like a lamp in the dark of night

Though my hands tremble
I can never leave this place

I watch the flames rise
The ashes dance among the stars

I rest my head upon the rocks
Hear the earth mourn

Longing for silence
I embrace the ruin

Thunderous discord
An encroaching presence
Thoughts left to die
Weeping, burning my home
Forgetting what once was held
Like a lamp in the dark of night

I must…
Track Name: The Immortal Plague
Enraged by desecration
I wake from my eternal sleep
Vowing death upon these aggressors
Vengeance shall be my reward

Incinerate
Sublimate

Upon the wind I ride
To boil the earth in blood
I crave suffering
To rebuke the living

These abhorrent worms
Lie on beds of filth
Hide their shame from themselves
Wish death upon their own

I bathe myself in blood
I revel in their death
I devote myself to
Slaughter

Incinerate
Sublimate

Upon the wind I ride
To boil the earth in blood
I crave suffering
To rebuke the living

I become one with death
I thrive on anguish of the living
Come, worship at my shrine
For here, I am the one true god

I am Hades
I am Thanatos
I am Azrael
I am Lucifer

Upon the wind I ride
To boil the earth in blood
I crave suffering
To rebuke the living

And it shall come to pass
That when all life has ceased
All shall be resurrected
So destruction may begin again

I bathe myself in blood
I revel in their death
I devote myself to
Slaughter

And now I reign supreme
All life has been erased
I return to my sleep
To awake in the day of…
