Pomp Sludge as all hell guitars, and funk inspired (?) bass drive thematically fun, atmospheric tunes about ancient terrors returning to consume mankind Favorite track: Drowning.

Joe Doherty This is some kick ass doom with fantastic imagery and awesome riffs. Great for jamming out during work or for long drives, especially with those awesome long songs. Favorite track: Call of the Wild.

Tad Man, Astral Cult are heavy. New record is heavy on the riffs and fuzz-driven bass , which all combine so nicely. I always thought Astral Cult had their own, distinct sound. I mean, let's be honest, there have been a boatload of stoner bands emerge that sound the same. Some excellent, some just O.K., but Astral Cult have enough distinction, to me, that when you hear them you know who they are. New album is hot! Dig it y'all..... Favorite track: Beacon of Darkness.

Face the teacher Metal preacher Now you know Keep your eyes On hidden spies It's far too slow The mass-effect Unruly swept Through frenzied times Communion kept From meeting it Empty behind It woke up again It woke up again, Oh no It woke up again It woke up again, Oh no Needing more A bleeding sore Never enough Stimulation Degradation Common trough Pregnant with A mental filth It's what they want Feel it rise From deep inside It sleeps no more It woke up again It woke up again, Oh no It woke up again It woke up again, Oh no It woke up again It woke up again, Oh no

Tapping into weakness Feeding on the heartless Echoes of a fall Soul-less breeding call Programmed for decline I and me and mine Seeding mad desire Setting worlds on fire Tapping into weakness Feeding on the heartless Echoes of a fall Soul-less breeding call Mindless slavery Countless vacant sheep Degraded normalcy Dragging life to sleep Take it away Mountain of shame Take it away Mountain of shame

Through the mist Silver light Silent trees entice Into the night Glowing eyes Heavy breath Nothing stirs Echoing footsteps Come with me Sweetly smell Ghostly hands emerging From the veil Thorny path Epitaph Sticking needles A quiet wrath Scattered bones No one knows No one knows, no one Nobody knows Glimmering In the dark Be complacent And fall apart Not a sight Not a sound But feeling is All around Drift into Murky pools Let it go Death is for the fools In the gloom See her face Weaving loom A sordid holy place And it calls Through its teeth A hunger that never sleeps Hear it call Through its teeth A hunger that never sleeps

Pressure building Tension guilding O, I feel it spreading Corrosive and healing A beacon of darkness To bring you down From your dreaming And when you are ready I'll break you down Only if you want me to Open and waiting You see me now I know you do And when you are ready I'll break you down O, you want me to Pressure building Tension guilding O, I feel it spreading Corrosive and healing Oppressive and heavy I'll hold you down When you fly away Come to the fountain I'll inundate And quench your thirsting I'm coming to get you To set you right I'm on my way A beacon of darkness To bring you down From your dreaming To bring you down To break you down To bring you down I'll break you down A beacon of darkness To bring you down And when you are ready I'll break you down A beacon of darkness To bring you down And when you are ready I'll break you down I'll break you down I'll break you down

Quetzalcoatl 11:15
They came from the skies The men with serpent eyes They brought creation Civilization Knowledge of the stars Who we were, who we are Science of the seasons The art of reason They left a prophecy Before they took to the sea When the soil burns Then they would return Guardians of the light Hold the torch through the night Royal bloodlines They left behind Falling star Streaming down A ball of flame Ignites the ground Signs are shown Eclipsing sun With plume and cross They have come The gods of old Have come for gold Not to save But to enslave They bring death Corrupted breath They spread plague Annihilate The gods of old Have come for gold Not to save But to enslave They bring death Corrupted breath They spread plague Annihilate Empires crumble Jungle swallows Monuments To Quetzalcoatl Sacrifices All in vain The bloody gods Have staked their claim From the dark There will rise One who has Redeemer's eyes They will teach Another life One beyond The gods of the skies

Lost and chosen Eyes wide open What was written Lies un-hidden Intuition Goes unbidden Breaking through dams God is I am I fight the sickness all around me But it's a desperate day I turn within for healing I walk the darkened way Through the maze Of contemplation I don't know That there's a way out Smothering intoxication Every turn A beast with no mouth Found and broken Eyelid tokens The words of men Will be forgotten I find the pyre standing And light the lonely flame A wave of fear resounding O, what a joyous day! Feel it spread Like an infection Breaking down the imperfections Cascading annihilation All that's left Is right relation SOI O PHALLE ISCHUROS EUCHARISTOS IAO Therion! Nuit. Babalon Hadit! Io Pan Io Pan Io Pan Io Pan, Pan, Pan! Io Pan! PRO MOU IUNGES OPICHO MOU TELETARCHAI EPI DEXIA CHUNOCHES EPARISTERA DAIMONOS PHEG EI GAR PERI MOU O ASTER TON PENTE KAI EN TEI STELEI O ASTER TON EX ESTEXE. SOI O PHALLE ISCHUROS EUCHARISTOS IAO Nothing now remains But to adore thee in song O heart of hearts about whom Is the circle and the tongue Continuous one of heaven! O circle and the star! The king has come To claim his throne, His scepter, And his crown Announce it to the many The end of fear and shame The Holy One is at the root And burns The Sacred Flame
