Uploaded this a month or two or ago, and finally got around to fixing all the little things that needed to be done. Guitars are re-recorded, played tighter and more precise, less fuzz on the chords than before, and just overall better I think.

It is a bit long, but I appreciate if you have the time to listen, and of course, post links to your songs and I will check them out!

Parallel Infinities 2:
Swarming The Sun
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

01: A Gaze Shifted

We impose order on the chaos of organic evolution
You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it


It all began as he drifted away
Passing by Saturn he saw them all
A massive armada dwarfing our worlds
Coast through space to the face of Earth

And then a voice, drew his focus
Distant and vague, an alien tongue

The words somehow, he understood
“You will soon be the last, the only”

Alien voices seeped inside
Whispering of impending doom
The universe inhales anxiously
To bate it's breath for the coming storm
You only exist because they allow it
And you will end because we demand it
Follow the stars away from them all
Expand to survive, or conquer and die

Hands against the glass, he watches on
As Mars is razed by the drifting swarm
Unseen watchers make their presence known
As the third child is soon consumed

Your mind will be shaped to infinity
Understand the concept of eternity

You are the spatial architect
The ambassador of baryonic forms

We will end you...

Alien voices blast their chords
Shouting of the impending doom
The universe exhaled a mighty wind
It's breath to become infinite storms
You only exist because we allow it
And you will end because we demand it
A feeble attempt from the fleshy machines
Expand to survive, or conquer and die

A gaze distant
Shifts...
It's focus

02: Consequence

Pulling against their laws and forces
Gravity, Light, Newton and Einstein
Admirable are your feeble attempts
But the Sovereign's eye, cannot allow this

We are infinite, undying
Limitless
You
Mere flesh
Pure bacteria

The insects on the anthill of Earth
Know not the forms, that they attract
Manipulate the laws in place
Shall bring a harbinger of pure perfection

03: Through Absent Gates


In the beginning we will die
Our monuments, backwards through time
We extend further than light
To perceive the ends, preserve the mind
I walk through gateways
Of absence

The mind of man is trawled
The knowledge to rebuild
Recreate
Redefine
The cosmic laws

What do you want with me?
Why have I been brought here?

Tell me now who you are
Tell me what has happened

All your worlds are cast to ash
Everything you know torn to shreds

This cannot be happening
What about everyone I loved?

There is nothing that can be done
All that remains is space and them

Why all this? Why me?
You are the one who must rebuild

04: Swarming The Sun

Sovereigns unknown swarm the sun
Their vast numbers have darkened the sky
Massive machines dwarf our worlds
And wrap their arms around the shell of Earth

The sky goes black and a shadow is cast
The human race is pushed into dark

Sovereign's arms slowly crush the Earth
Cracks cross continents like erupting veins

Alien voices blast their chords
Of a different breed, of a different kind
Low frequency shifts its pitch
To rack his mind with pain
You only exist because we allow it
And you will die because we demand it
A feeble attempt from the fleshy machines
leaves a tiny mark on the cosmic time line

Their gaze, distant
Shifts...
It's focus

Your worlds will be our laboratories

ayreon + immortal = The Uncreator!!!!

This was awesome, the opening reminded me of ayreon's age of shadows. Even your band name is cool, I'm currently reading Redemption Ark.

This is the sort of music I wish I could make, science fiction metal...its the future

Ha, thanks for the comparison! Made me feel nice and warm inside!

Redemption Ark is fantastic, the trilogy really just keeps getting better and better. I am re-reading it right now for about the 3rd time. I love the section describing Hypometric Weaponry

Very much improved over the original, although some parts a little rushed, particulary the triplets in the beginning, the start of the second section with the palm muted playing and chords, and the open string chugging at the ten minute mark, its not extremely bad but you definitely hear you missed a few beats here and there, id work on tightening up your triplets and palm muted playing, just make it so every note fits on the beat to the metronome, I've had bad experiences with those too and I ended up with bad results .

The song is also kind of long, it is fairly impressive, it just needs a little more variety maybe a drastic change in tempo or dynamic (something I've seen improve in your other song) just to switch things up a little bit, maybe more awesome solos haha. Good shit, just make sure to clean up your playing is my only suggestion to be honest.
