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

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

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

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…

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…

______________________________

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.
