intothelungsofhell666 As FDJ said, I cant help but compare this to baroness... Think the harsher vocals of red and blue era, along with dueling lead guitars, and even breaks/drum parts... Whether that band is an influence, be it accident or on purpose... Doesn't matter, these guys are their own band and I love this album!!!!!! I'll be following them on BC, awaiting more awesomeness!!!! DCLXVI.. Favorite track: Into Black Resolution.

Damon Morgan Heard about these guys on the Doomed and Stoned preview for the Ohio Doomfest and it was sitting in my wishlist for a minute.

This release crushes from the opening riffs. Thin Lizzy meets Truckfighters with a dose of Mastodon for sure.

A little late to the game on these guys, but better late than never.

This does not disappoint. Favorite track: Psalm of Kingsfall.

Marcin Wielewski Top 1 of 2016! One of the albums that change my mind, and my taste of music. Maximum power + heavy fucking riffs + deepthroat vocals + great songwriting equals MASTERPIECE! BEST stoner metal I've heard in my life! Favorite track: A Newfound Purity.

David 06:26
Buried and surviving on dead sees which fall from above Or be cast aside, left to starve, proclaimed useless by the machine The hopeless and the diseased dine among rodents Rotting bone, teeth, and minds under shadow of a dying sun Trust in the Machine We shall return no more to the surface, fear of radiation Peace of mind known never again, rendered useless by the machine Surely it's best to dig upward and vaporize, quick and painless Circumstance, no choice but to suffer under shadow of a dying sun We must preserve our finite resources We must keep the Machine turning
All which was gone, reborn again 
A second chance to breathe like ages past Drink not from poisoned stream
 To taste the salt and sulfur, never after
 Choke not on burning air
 Cherish the flora cleansing, water condensing 
Crave not to feed for long 
Fruits from the garden gifted, ecstasy lifted 
Dream not desert these fields 
To seek knowledge or power, a useless venture A covenant to forge between the Earth and Man 
Replenish and corrupt, Goddess Nature be damned All which was gone, reborn again
 Another chance to live like ages past Desire and lust for more
 Salt of the earth look outward, grow beyond her 
To tame a perilous sky
 And stoke the ashen ember, it's human nature
 Sever her roots and vines Resist! Evolve! A greater question must be solved 
Courage! Too strong to fight the cosmic siren song
Impossible outliers, last known survivors
 We feed, extraction to avoid extinction
 Legacy immortal, we writhe and smile
 Exalt our savior 
Eternal turmoil beneath seed and soil 
Blessed be our days Grateful and sick, we colonize
 A kingdom underground
 Revel in our awful plight
 No sorrow in our prophet's eyes
 We celebrate our hopeless hive The insurgent dares to sing 
"Freedom is waiting, for no machine is king
 Unstrap yourselves, arise!" 
None shall defy its word
 All traitors trapped and bound 
To weep alongside the devoted 
We will let the past dictate our future
 No savior left unsung A newfound purity locked within our agony 
Its grace, o' we will sing
 Peace and discomfort it will bring
Ancient sin long foretold Prophets warned, prophets ignored Magic beheld by nature damned Gods abandoned, inflicted the scar to rot the Earth Within our flesh, coursing through our veins, is the Black Resolution The fall of man kept in our blood, therefore it is written In the northern sky, when the stars fall from sight Evils arise in the hearts of men Wondrous lust stains the Earth with blood This law obey, bow to me and destroy your brothers
And these calloused hands will shake and grasp at the mouth of kings Cut out their tongues Sing the psalm of blood as a song of holy words Rain down from the highest throne Golden robes lay torn, idols taken to the torch Remnants of these righteous men The monuments they’ve built, their vanity will turn to ash In the age of kingsfall The mark of the servant burned into the hand that fills the cup The hand that plows the field, the hand that quenches lust The calendar’s stones worn away by the ages in holy bonds Buried too long in darkness, are you meek and humble Find your courage, raise your anchor Servants and sinners listen all. Loose the shackles bled your wrists We become the secret words that slipped your fathers’ lips Assemble at the gates. We ascend unknown Stone by stone, they are entombed in their gilded, holy halls Find your courage, raise your anchor Find your courage, rise to anger
Communion, sea to Earth to sky. Sons and daughters born of mud Earthen child swaddled by leaf, Mother's wisdom in salted wave We roam the Earth secretly. Till the soil 'til our fingers bleed We plant the seeds of time, antiquated relics of another age The ruined world, machinations from the mind of man These tears soak the soil as we dig Mother's anger, rise with the dawn We reside in majesty, in fertile fields and oceans deep We move unknown, but nature sees a burden to our Mother's need
Eleleth 07:52
Ascension! The call, ethereal The voice, heaven sound Hear his song awind to ground Seduction! The light in morning sky Ecstasy of knowledge learned Watch in awe, the world will turn Elation! My burden left behind Escape the seed, the plow, the field The aeon’s song will teach us yield Aberration! The pleading, silent stares Words cannot change the path A reckoning has come at last We felt the call from the realm where dead men dwell Above the earth we will rise to final light Unburden! Breathe deep the sour wine Gaze upon your world of dust Drink but quick, and stay the cup Awaken! You bold and loyal men Lie and free the third Hear now my whispers Envision! Your place at my hand Your palace, grand and gold Glory now yours to behold Abandon! Let go of the earth The life inside your lungs My son It is done From the ground in shadow Hidden in the halo As they sleep evermore Barren lies the Earth below Darkened land, waters still Commence now, night untold
