Wing of The Praetor On a twist - we exist - a blessing to the overlord In a line - we define - a word not spoken in an endless time Take a world - make a mist - firma for the wealthy Plant a sign - sun will shine - third time orbit winds go cut the cord Ride Ride Ride On the wing of the Praetor Ride Ride Ride The bones of the holy man Send a word - through the hole - worm makes it happen Wait a while - receive the file - words of the dead from a billion miles Ride Ride Ride On the wing of the Praetor Ride Ride Ride The bones of the holy man

The Millipede 1000 legs, strength untold a single heart, growing old a carapace of majesty entomophobe begone; stand; behold Hear the cries don't defy set him free the millipede! break the chain take the rein aphids flee the millipede! I sees the star, the master's home so far away, the eco-dome humble servant, strength inside i call my master - now you know Hear the cries don't defy set him free the millipede to the sky don't ask why take the wing the millipede! gonopods - defy the odds - evolve - now a mystery endless sands - poisoned glands - evolve to become history segments divided moult in hiding a thousand stings a thousand wings To the cloud keep the vow hardened skin the millipede! the time is now to eat ant cow upon his shins the millipede now spawning fins the millipede

Strong Tongue Fallout in a fistful of whiskey I'm out of my mind Allotment of chemicals You seek and I find Mist covers my lily pad Wistful memory of time gone wrong Flowing down my chemical chamber Reptile writes my song No button! No cord! Strong tongue on the third moon of Platus Disaster strikes and all is lost! Hold on to a fistful of bullets Help me load my mind Deep down in a well of awareness Enlightened by the sign Stroll into a room full of elephants trunks ready for lines so long Bathroom is a maze for my matter Reptile writes my song Roast mutton! Black Lord! Strong tongue on the third moon of Platus Disaster strikes and all is lost! Woke up in a room full of anthills They crawl up my mind Bites cover my sixtieth brain stem Queen starts to unwind Drones walk in formation tunnel deep down in the depth of my ego Language escapes me I hold the hand of my ant friend and we go Proglutten! Glastord! Strong tongue on the third moon of Platus Disaster strikes and all is lost!

Exodus 07:35
Exodus Once, long ago, we had a vision - and it was sad sad like the wings of song it took so long... Spawned in hand, a star growing, it seemed so far far it seemed till yesterday we turned away... Touch this side for the last time slowly, we cross the line winds cold for one more day We're taught to pray Light, Light, Light, Light Light burns the hands of the innocent Night, Night, Night, Night Night turns cold Fight, Fight, Fight for a handful of sand in the exodus Lied to, undermined, controlled Cower in the sight of a flower Holding onto dreams that shower Life and death combined Conception intertwined Power it was born without love Hold on - we dream of an end, mortality, look at me, finality, bow! Light, Light, Light, Light Light burns the hands of the innocent Night, Night, Night, Night Night turns cold Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight Fight for a handful of sand in the exodus Lied to, undermined and controlled Cower in the sight of a flower Hold onto dreams that shower Life and death combined Conception intertwined Power born without love Holding on - we dream of an end, mortality, look at me, finality, bow! Once, long ago, we had a vision - and it was sad sad like the wings of song We were wrong...

Frozen Eye 05:02
The Frozen Eye Bracing for winter Blood in the trees Thaw by the atom Now it is free Readings begin to place more concrete importance on the findings Intelligence, cold - uncompromised by emotion - define blindness The signal is given - billions are driven from their minds in the blink of his eye Single in conciousness - blessed to be alive I suppose I should lay down and die It's the frozen eye It's the frozen eye Don't ask why the eye envelops the sky It's the frozen eye It's the frozen eye Don't ask why the eye envelops the sky What did he tell you? What do you see? It said Love is a concept that is strange to me Feelings begin when dark matter is thinned by the hybrid The being that burned four thousand years of the learn-ed words are lies yeah The signal is given - billions are driven from their minds in the blink of his eye Single in conciousness - blessed to be alive I suppose I should lay down and die It's the frozen eye It's the frozen eye Don't ask why the eye envelops the sky It's the frozen eye It's the frozen eye Don't ask why the eye envelops the sky They had a world You know it Rapture is hurled below it They learned to fly away that night through a hole in fabric of time space and light cries of the souls were heard that day existence, gone with gravity depravity was made cold that night when the frozen eye took form and was given sight it's the frozen eye the frozen eye the frozen eye the frozen eye Bracing for winter Blood in the trees Thaw by the atom Now it is free The sins of all those whose beliefs were imposed now divining On poles in the valley of our dismembered woes now aligning

Terra Cat fast like a witch with a terra cat cold like the hole of the blood bat wild like fire in the lava field rest now bitch gonna fit you with a plasma shield weasel cryin' in the dust storm broken wires on a rust farm drydock, years now a 10 second lifetime shocked by a corpse when I notice that it was mine sold in the hall of the dung rats slave to the blade wieldin' cyber-sats cloaked by the sword of Katalifarinosteles take my word - it's her - now you have to plant the seed fire burns higher yearns for light when the bite is acquired fire takes desire foldin' time gettin' high took the graft from the terra cat fused with the shaft of the phalla-gnat stem cell baby from the womb of the all-source naked, cold, mad, raving, crazy from the life force fire burns higher yearns for light when the bite is acquired fire takes desire foldin' time gettin' high

about

Proceed with caution... With the touch of a button you will have access to a powerful device, a vessel that will transport you to the farthest reaches of the space-time continuum and beyond. It is a direct conduit to the limits of our concept of the plane of existence, in which the traveler will confront the overwhelming terrors of the vast, darkest distances of outer space, and the deeper dread of the still darker recesses of inner space.
As you submerge into this all-enveloping sonic brew, the mind’s eye conjures images of the fantastical and the foreboding, veiled glimpses of outlandish beings and unearthly realms.

If the legendary minds of science fiction - Verne; Wells; Lovecraft; Asimov; Heinlein; Bradbury - had gotten their hands on electric guitars, drums and 100-watt Marshalls, they’d have sounded like Space Metal. Imagine their creations of existential horror and the forbidding cosmos, told not via manuscript, but through screaming humbuckers and glowing power tubes. Amidst the bludgeoning musical arrangements contained herein, you will discover one mind-bending tale after another, visions to rival the nightmares of those pioneering authors: an immense, glacial ocular orb that enslaves the minds of the masses; a consciousness, possibly human, on a distant planetoid, slowly succumbing to a powerful, otherworldly opiate; an agonizing death in the icy grip of the unforgiving vacuum of space; a monstrously mutating arthropod. These chronicles of the fantastic, the grotesque, and more await the astute listener within.

There has never existed a cultural era better suited to a misspent youth than the cluster of years in the late '70s/early '80s, when all of pop culture seemed submerged in sci-fi and horror; when, best of all, the seminal works of classic heavy metal - spinning, as they should, on crackling slabs of vinyl - blasted out of fake-wood-grain speakers sitting on shag carpeting. Space Metal provides you with a time machine, the controls set to that bygone era, those halcyon days of apocalyptic wastelands and ripping guitar solos, steel swords and sweet smoke.

Despite the band’s uncanny ability to instantly transport the listener to ground zero of classic metal’s glory years, this is no nostalgia act, no group of mere historians simply preserving a style of music; this is vital, original heavy rock, inspired and informed by the very best of the genre’s bombastic history. It’s all here, fused by force in the aural assault of Space Metal, and captured the way the Elder Gods intended: slammed onto two-inch magnetic tape with a vengeance, in a vintage '70s analog recording studio. Why does this album sound like the real thing? Because it IS the real thing.

The five musicians of Space Metal have united into one biomechanical hive-mind, with a singular creative purpose; while working with the deadly precision of a finely-tuned machine, they never abandon the musical soul of the defiant humanity within, fighting to remain.

At track one of this album, you approach the event horizon of a black hole, and just as with the inexorable pull of that dark cosmic maw, you will be drawn beyond the point of no return, into the ultimate density of Space Metal’s crushing sonic singularity. There is no hope of escape. Give yourself over to it, and the musical explorations of this band will strain the limits of your mind AND your eardrums - in equal, unrelenting measure.

This is colossally heavy. This is boundlessly expansive. This is SPACE METAL.
