Old Man Doom I was drinking some cheap bourbon browsing the bandcamp when I stumbled upon these lads. Great riffs. Awesome to blast at 1 a.m. and piss off your neighbors. Fuck yeah. Favorite track: Gaze Not Home.

Zhakathoom Solid. Heavy, yet smooth. Great vocals. Giving me Black Thai vibes. Great stuff at a hard to beat price.

Track Name: Gaze Not Home
Frozen hull cuts through nothingness
Hurtling toward sanctuary
Gaze not home

Sunlight fades as their new dawn nears
Solitary life boat cast off
Gaze not home

It is no more
Look beyond now
It is no more

Those green fields never were
That blue sky always burned
The poison always flowed
Deep in the veins of all
Deep in the veins

It is no more
Look beyond now
Look to freedom

Eyes turned skyward trace that bright arc
Hurtling toward sanctuary
Gaze now home

Darkness falls though morning bells ring
Left behind to sift the ashes
Gaze now home

It is no more
Look beyond now
It is no more

This garden never grew
This death has always been
Hope always burned away
Into the void beyond
Into the void

It is no more
Look beyond now
Look to sacrifice
Track Name: Nothing On The Horizon
The end is in the beginning and yet I go on
Grain upon grain, one by one
I play, I lose, and I have done (with it)
The end is in the beginning and yet I go on

I know my life is but a slow death
Each moment one closer to my last breath
I know my life is but a slow death

The end is in the beginning and yet I go on
Staring at the horizon... there's nothing on the horizon
Nothing on the horizon but the gray sun.
The end is in the beginning and yet I go on

I know my life is but a slow death
Each moment one closer to my last breath
I know my life is but a slow death

My dream
A world silent and still
Each thing in its last place

My dream
A world silent and still
Under the last dust

The end is in the beginning and yet I go on
Track Name: Lotus
Driven thence
By foul winds
Nine days upon the sea

Driven thence
We reached their land
That take a flower for their feast

They raised no sword
They did not run
Gave lotus flower and bade us eat

Can't remember hearth or home
Don't know my name or where I've been

No resistance to nonexistence
I take the flower for my feast

That nectar
Cleared our eyes
So rare and so sweet

Made no return
We sent no word
Of our bloodless defeat

Forced and fast, we bitter wept
Only the flower we seek

Heathens boarded to drag us home
Wailed as their oars smote the sea

This bliss fills me
This bliss kills me

Open my eyes
Open my mind's eye
Open my mind
My mind dies

My mind dies
