Actually posted this before, twice I think actually. And once again I've taken as much advice as I can from you guys and made some changes accordingly. Listen and let me know what you think!

Parallel Infinities, Interval 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
Lascaille's Shroud

You only exist because we allow it,
And you will end because we demand it.

WOW i really love this whole concept of sci-fi prog death metal!
sounds really cool and original, but i really don't dig some of the overly-jingling cymbals you use in the song, and the most of the double kick sounds really good, but you'll probably have to re-EQ/ compress/ slow it down so that it doesn't just sound like buzzing.
also, i realise how your trying to get the whole prog-feel to it by playing around with timings, but some parts feel kinda sloppy (solo at around 8:30)

other that that, the song has a lot of potential if you tighten it up a bit.
btw i'd love to see you guys play live if you get a bit bigger and maybe come down to Sydney! really unique. (and if you're just a solo artist, i suggest you put together a band ASAP!)
