Jeff Richardson In 1014, Byzantine Emperor Basil II crushed Bulgar resistance in the battle of Kleidion. Of the 15,000 (?) captured, Basil blinded 99 out of every 100 prisoners; the last of each group, left with one eye to guide the pitiful survivors back to their own land. See, there is connexion with history, art, and harsh tenor. Imagination!
That's how much I like this record. Favorite track: The Dark Within.

Majbritt Levinsen Highly recommended!
Haven't really decided which track I love the most yet, they are equally good in each their own way.
Go listen and buy it to get to see more great artwork from Barandash Karandashich! Favorite track: Isolated Evolution.

Katimavik86 I'm a GenXer who hates music videos but I was really drawn-in by the one for 'A Quiet Affirmation'. The bleak sounds and imagery seemed to walk the same plot: affirmation and calm resolution mixed in equal measure. Favorite track: A Quiet Affirmation.

broken life extinguished stars last of giants wither away not alone i am wrapped in the dust of an age in the folds of nothing i am one with your gods a silent audience observing the pantomime the secret revealed in a marriage of fracturing dreams i am still here

adrift in cataclysmic winds one is torn from the flock left to wander on its own build existence with a thought grow to survive left without a choice secrets in the cell transfigured in the dark isolated evolution! isloated evolution! determining the path moving beyond self removing boundaries, limits of the flesh reach defined by will grow to survive left without a choice secrets in the cell transfigured in the dark isolated evolution! isloated evolution! isolated evolution! isloated evolution!

the veil is parted invites a look inside face to face with your contempt for this human hide this is what you valued this is what you chose this is offered up as feast for the carrion crows watch as all your options crumble watch as all illusions fail welcome to the dark within welcome to my grief worldview is blackened cannot escape your mind the path is littered with the sins you create leave you helpless and blind this is what we fight against more than anyone knows pain suppressed in a hundred ways as the depression grows watch as all your options crumble watch as all illusions fail welcome to the dark within welcome to my grief watch as all your options crumble watch as all illusions fail welcome to the dark within welcome to my grief

he lays his head under prophetic skies to conjure up his own vision of god a deity assembled from the blood and filth of a mind withdrawn from the light unquestioned rhetoric has spoiled his faith in himself, in his eyes, in the ones who would care a black equation that has sullied his soul to accept all the lies that have shattered his life i search for time that i will never get back a past always out of reach my eyes can’t look to the future strange symbols are blinding me the shadows mar the memories of his life obscuring the thoughts that were once held pure would this but melt, he laments to the sky as he willingly sinks himself in the dark i search for sins that i cannot erase when i was more than i am i cling to sigils that are false in the light strange symbols are haunting me

Seraphim 06:20
a sigil left upon a broken land its roots spread far under the earth the old seer’s eyes can no longer see a way out from the cold and the black there is no break on the horizon the path is no longer laid bare i put my trust in your seraphim only to find they weren’t there the path is worn with the footsteps of man broken from the pain of birth born to clash with iron and steel to claim dominion of your name there is no break on the horizon the path is no longer laid bare i put my trust in your seraphim only to find they weren’t there is this the so-called new frontier a field of broken flesh and bone of angel wings and trumpets crushed doomed to retell this tale of sand

stars denote the coming of the still eternal winter for the engine of the world rust of centuries stuck between the gears provide a requiem for the age of flesh destinations falling off the map the circle narrows to the dark unknown lens is cracked, the hands now stopped birth of loathing, genesis of doubt this is the winter of the world this is the weakening of flesh this is a choice that you have made this is the coming of the still drained of color, sky is void of life failure of repeated actions left with nothing but the detritus of false plans frozen on the barren ground minutes lost serve as the foundation construction of a new machine paralyzed in shame allow the ties to bind no support for the scaffolding of mind this is the winter of the world this is the weakening of flesh this is a choice that you have made this is the coming of the still

i didn’t know, couldn’t see the stars occlude the pain i caused you, and now it’s blinded me lost in the folds of past regrets cant’ find a place to rest my head, restore my faith, absolve my soul in the end, what is left? words unspoken, prayers unheard let me have another chance to see if you heard me felt my hand i didn’t know, couldn’t see the door is closed and I can’t find the lock, and i don’t have a key the emptiness surrounds my pantomime, I pretend you hear me i fumble for the words I never said

about

Necrolytic Goat Converter New York

Started as a joke band name crowd-sourced on Facebook, then turned into something else: therapy through music.

Thanks for checking out one man working through his personal demons, badly, through the music that he loves.
