The world is not a family of species joining hands It's a dark mysterious mesh of shining shapeless forms Immersed in each other withdrawn from ourselves A stream we all enter and we all leave A stream we never enter and we never leave Embrace the new dark age Welcome to the Anthropocene
The age of humanity In catastrophe, the ecstasy We rise above all division In the glory of extinction Iä! Iä! We paint the earth black To make an altar for you There is no turning back No world that was pure Iä! Iä! What was blue, has turned green What was green, has turned black What was black, always comes back And it haunts us from within The stars will be right When the black stains all light Iä! Iä!
This planet is haunted, by its own dream It is waking up, to its dying scream The soul of the earth, waits under the sea Dead from its birth, life is his dream The ocean dreams of the ground The earth dreams of the sea The stars have all drowned The Four Billion Year Dream Our lives rounded with sleep We are swirls in a stream He is the source, he is the deep The Four Billion Year Dream Above us and below us, black seas of infinity He dreams all of us, he calls for you and me Fierce the pale star burns, deep beneath the waves Slow the planet turns, light shines from the graves Sleeper, awakes
I stare at the sea The waves are all I see A mask for what's beneath Something waits in the deep A shadow of a mountain Something moves beneath the waves My eyes cannot see The enormity of the deep I feel the vertigo The abyss before me The deep moves in the black It cannot be it shouldn't be Too vast to understand Something moves beneath the waves I drown... I am inside, the deep I cannot see, it surrounds me The thing, the horror All around me, and inside me It is in me, it cannot be I cannot see, the waves Everything, only waves I am, only waves And the thing, that awaits Beneath, the waves I cannot see, the sea But the sea, sees me The sea, it lives The deep, it breathes Too much, no more I drown, no words Space dislocating Time overflowing Dimension phasing All-encompassing
The world has ended, and we have been blind We did not see the dream, that was always more than real The world was never true, only a cycle, only time There was never no one there, just mirrors in the dark Now we hunt for ourselves, in the ashes of our world Ghosts of the extinct, howling at mirrors We are a nothing and we know it, and there is nothing as beautiful All these tears are washed away, by memories of carbon ghosts Only mirrors within mirrors, pale ghosts of infinity The scream of a mind, as it sees its eternity I can taste it, I can feel it, invisible, on my skin And we are skin to skin, with every single thing We begin only to end, we end only to begin We merge and intertwine, we are base, we are divine There is only a spectre, of what we thought was real We are haunted, we are homeless, we are fearless, we are free Come and warm your hands, by the burning fossil fire Then we take the last ride, to the poison light on the other side There is no beyond! No! Beyond!

"The old Abhorrence sound, reaching from death to doom to black and psychedelia, is all there on the EP. This time, the pioneers of death metal horror have dug their claws into the deep abyss of the ocean. True to their roots of nightmare and terror, Abhorrence brings you a vision of Lovecraftian horror in the age of the ecological catastrophe. The lyrics fuse together the deeply unsettling tales of H.P. Lovecraft with the thought-provoking philosophy of Timothy Morton, arguably the most important thinker of the anthropoce, the current catastrophical age of human existence." - Svart Records

Abhorrence Helsinki, Finland

We are a Finnish old school death metal band, originally active from 1989 to 1990. We reactivated in 2013 for few reunion gigs, following the release of "Completely Vulgar" compilation album released by Svart Records. In 2017 Svart Records released "Totally Vulgar - Live at Tuska Open Air 2013" live album and we celebrated this with a minitour. Future is murky and uncertain. ... more
