Neil Grace I’ve adored this band since I first heard ‘The Colony’. Pure cosmic and well thought out death metal! This is their most proficient offering yet and really enjoyable from start to finish. Some Blood Incantation and Timeghoul vibes but very much NUCLEUS!! Favorite track: Outpost.

Arrival 06:32
Earth smolders - No remnant remains To unknown terminus the beacon’s signal travels Hovering within the exosphere - Corvettes gleam As weeks advance, convoys gather Two envoys that hang inanimate begin to drift Carriers descend in close formation Before the assembling mass, beings emerge Inhabitants from the local systems - Two species Survivors of the first wave - The fourth destroyed Centuries afloat, its mission now complete The signal let loose The bursts journeys Years past the borders into the transcend Lying in wait within the galactic halo The Entity - Formless One Distributed intelligence All forms will become one
Entity 04:29
Conceived in untold aeons past Consolidation of life to its necessary conclusion Fragments of self Spread forth to the void Drifted within the local sector Detecting the existence of local forms of life Collided into the planet of what was once the fourth race Ravaged and lifeless, a sacrifice for what remains Particles of the fragment undetected Left to drift The beacon is lit Now fulfilled of purpose
Uplift 05:09
Monoliths delivered - Technological ascension Uplift - Joined together in opposition Traveling through the vastness with calculated purpose Centuries to pass towards defensive formulation Spread throughout the systems To support the rapid industrialization Exponential expansion A growing swarm Generations fed through the machine Seeing neither beginning nor the end Far bound sentries detect the threat Abruptly blink out of existence A race now bred for the inevitable conflict spreads forth
Mobilization 04:48
Fortified positions set Battle stations of alternated fleets Defensive stations shifted Concentric lines light years spaced Obstructing the path to its core Lying in wait in the final days Unknowing the extent Of the formless death that approaches A stillness in the void An outwardly lifeless structure surges forth The edges begin to ripple and shift, splitting and reforming Culmination of centuries - The approach of the controlling form
Approach 03:29
Outpost 03:51
The forward lines broken, pushed back system by system Patterns randomized to counter absorbed intelligence Effective tactics negated The living flesh regenerates through absorption of defeated flesh Accumulating in the advance The form divides and spreads A lone ship thought lost docks at Station Alkaid Lone signal burst before communications lost Flawless replication of ship and crew Knowledge assimilated Burst forth permeating every crevice An entire fleet lost New directive Separation is death
Dominion 05:40
Methodically moving world to world, system by system Its ichor flows Encapsulating entire worlds Stripping all trace of organic matter Forces in retreat - Floundering defenses Fleets rapidly pushed back Meticulous advance - Leaving no trace Mere months till the home planets reached Desperate research to find any weakness A sign of hope in study of the fragments first arrival Reverse engineer the field All resources devoted to the cause Pushing back for precious days The grip tightens Research completed - The massive construct assembled A plan put into motion - Failure is extinction All remaining forces coalesce - A convoy formed Transporting into the void between stars
Timechasm 04:24
The staging ground set Defensive perimeter protects machine The entire armada activate broadcast beacons Corvette bombing runs lure the fractured blight Masses along the path reintegrate, recognizing the gathered force The first splinters reach the forward line Mass sacrifice to gain moments needed The line must be held Until the full mass is within reach No possibility of retreat In the final moments critical mass achieved The reversed field activates expanding light years Captured in the void - A prison of time Billions lost - Trapped within The ceaselessly advancing hunger to inevitably be released
