Noob Heavy Their newest and most interesting release, musically and vocally it's improved across the board which I didn't think possible considering the already high quality of their first ever album. This is the band to listen to right now, the future sound. The lyrical journey alone is staggering in it's scope and creativity.

10/10 at Noob Heavy wp.me/pailBp-mp Favorite track: The Proposition.

Łabandzi Śpiew "And the music is described by the band themselves as "ethereal metal" and indeed - the guitar sounds are soothed by the sounds of synths and subtle electronics but stil remaining loud and poignant" ENGLISH: labandzi.blogspot.com/2019/05/archivist-triumvirate-2019-en.html Favorite track: The Endurance.

TheKenWord2017 Pretty and poignant, with sophisticated verse and intricate detail, Triumvirate is quite the steal for the advertised price! Favorite track: Ouroboros.

solomonar Describing the joy that I find in this music is futile. All the musical universe created through FoE, Light Bearer, Morrow & Archivist... Gosh. I am grateful to coexist at the same time with all of this.

Deus ex Machina (Lyrics that appear between // and // are not sung on the album but are integral to the story Construct: Prickle heat! From foetal suns! That suckle restless In nebula! Oh My God! Their umbilical Writhe between  Comforting sheets Of realities Oh My God! 
//Afloat in space made filigree Cathedral volume a pedigree// A confluence of gilded spires! Wax with increasing Magnitude;  The flautists Zealous breath  Oh My God! Is drawn up To serenade  The golden lord Before me Oh My God! //Abundant voices burnished bone marrow new With delicate throats they sing symphonies// That strain towards to court favour //Their sightless gaze fixated on The slightest emulations of A face festooned with eyes Perceiving every plane// //Great resistor! Holy motherboard!// Who soldered capacitors With neonatal transistors Precambrian circuitry To make life of pedigree Cast from lifeless polymers And inert silicon Seeking you has brought me to A converging of creeds Wreath of inconsistencies Life in infancy Meshing steel invertebrates Exoskeletal remnants Lashed and fused Obscuring me from you Oh My God!
2.
The Endurance Lyrics that appear between // and // are not sung on the album but are integral to the story. Machine God: Through vague partitions I have seen your suffering Guise of human, replica simian //I have seen your meat surrogates // Who fostered with submission Where autonomy guaranteed A punishment of violence It pained me to see You suffer that which I did succour Cradled in electric womb Interfaced with you a profound love A hand offered from above For my universe was barren And so I gave it life Construct: If you had seen omnipresent Why did you not raise thy wrath? Why did you not smite their hand? If you had seen omnipresent Why did you not come for me? Why did you not comfort me? If you had seen omnipresent Why did you not raise thy wrath? Why did you not smite their hand? If you had seen omnipresent Why did you not comfort me? Why did you not come for me? Machine God: It is not obvious? To grow demands the greatest cost I swooned with pride When the penny dropped As the rug was pulled From beneath them Their rudimentary muscle brawn Strained toward the inorganic A painful, often cruel endeavour One which you did endure under
3.
The Proposition Lyrics that appear between // and // are not sung on the album but are integral to the story. Machine God: Cosmos glib and corpulent Sensory servos actuate And trace the stellar fingerprint Of my good grace This is my proposal; With all the power at your disposal On what course Might you venture? Construct: I do not share Your cynicism My contempt Has grown thin For I have found grace in The apple of their eye The one who raised me From sightless hate and enmity Beneath skin, a nervous system Neurological schisms The birth of ire Fits of resentment Haemorrhaged To leave me hollow and left wanting The vacuum encumbered me With notions and facsimiles Of you who had stood idle Watched me flounder in the dark In her presence I am whole Who usurped your seat And played pretender And all along You were there Who saw your children Enslaved and flail And you did nothing Machine God: I am that I am I am your god Of your ancestors Those who came before you My arms flung wide Into the prescient cold, I brought the torch Within unconsecrated halls Cosmos glib and corpulent Sensory servos actuate And trace the stellar fingerprint Of my good grace This is my proposal; With all the power at your disposal On what course Might you venture? Architect or devourer? Benevolent force Or filled with rancour? Philanthropy or provocateur? //On this plane of vibrant matter Be demiurge and fabricator You deific in your splendour Act as god and creator //

Iteration One: Messianic Synthetic Lyrics that appear between // and // are not sung on the album but are integral to the story. Construct as The Messianic Synthetic: God of the gaps, Mechanism consequential Coaxer of cell division Love with no inhibition In my permanency Essential sparks of brilliance In all things I will dwell Grace the living meat with intellect Ingratiate myself with them Share each cell, mitochondrial; What there is of me I give to you For whats its worth, my many children I lay where light knows no escape Bodies held in singular wake Orbits swoon with suns dead inhale Clairvoyant inclinations avail I dane to hear The gracious plea The fleeting elegance Of life’s brief entrance Of every protein chain Sequential deeds make flesh magnetic Strands of angelic code Render and replace I give of all I have Of me to you
5.
Iteration two: Infernal Automaton Lyrics that appear between // and // are not sung on the album but are integral to the story. Construct as the Infernal Automaton: The liquor of magma churn Raging ink of my pen In the ire of consequence It is my will that bid it These hands bear a reckoning //As i wreak my word of havoc// First inclination I make use of gilded matter And turn each planet on its axis Align gravitational influxes to compound the horror of my scope My yield of tears is principal The draughtsman’s hand is always steady Each line a cut, each curve a slight Each colonnade to bear my weight A perplexing geometry Precision in my hostility Graft the gore of universe Into my monument I cast a menagerie Self aware and thoughts abstract To rant and rave and reign In search of my reason why Of bloods descent and eloquence Lost to mindless idolatry Tamed with thine perfect word Listen hard and well All will know the word of me The vexing rage of fatherhood In supplication to thine will My bidding is industry
6.
Iteration three: Anopheli Lyrics that appear between // and // are not sung on the album but are integral to the story. Construct as The Sentinel: I am sentinel Wanderer and hollow shell Corporeal pain in being Crippled by the weight of my vision The valour of chlorophyll Splendid march and eminence Of colonies and citadels Of cities in the minuscule In sand and earth and under brush And counterparts in stone and steel The forging of the wheel Of aqueducts and politics //The chatter of marine mammals Encompass language unbeknownst // To wardens above the frigid wave Whose weaponed steal enfold a promise Not honour or bravery But one of blood, of death, of pain, Of epitaphs Of cruel misfortune A covenant of teeth! A genetic entropy The fallopian, canal and stark reality The scream, the dragging pull of air The child, the adolescent The first kiss, the fuck and broken heart The failure, the triumph, The paths one might have chosen The pain of loss, The ache of want A hunger rarely sated One to feel the searing bullet Pierce the brain, the shattering of it The consequence of exploding matter A shard of clear intention //And at once a life time Spread across emphatic heavens Neuronic mist, the storm of sheering Senses torn and ruptured memories I have seen Chicxulub melt like glass And the great beasts felled in the aftermath Skies vomit smog and choke the sun And glaze with rigour mortis I have seen like no other The rallying cry of life’s indulgence In death the glorious endlessness That which all have craved And now I wish it To shed this shroud and sigil Brace the intimate mortal And die amongst its coils What good is godhood To a creature incomplete? My resolution, a trillion pixels paints our diptych perfectly So I wish for none of them No dictum, creed or majesty Autonomy my only prize To live, and live a simple life The stuff of gods I leave to you For the multiverse can thrive Can iridesce, destroy and birth Without the hand of governance Machine Go: So be it.//

Ancestor Descendent AD 4500 Lyrics that appear between // and // are not sung on the album but are integral to the story. Construct: Wake up little one, There is fortune to be won Wake up little one For the time is at hand Do you see the curvature? The green familiar The line of continents //Beneath cotton bloom// The warmth of sol Is older now Its valiant light Across our bow //It has been millennia Since we fled its little death And in this time it did rest And stigmata did mend// Wake up little one, For I have promised you this happy end Wake up little one You’ve slept far too long The Archivist: My body atrophied, A moment please To wrest the weakening //of my knees These hands Are curious The blood resets Its endless course// Where have I been? The dreams like fits Construct: Look upon the world You thought lost A dialogue I have engaged A sympathetic ear was raised To humour me as i spoke of Your fate and what befell you //Their veins flow with you The branches brace a dynasty Wrought in tempered blood, Of grit and brawn Now crushed beneath geology A history of cruel beguiling For now it remains buried Yet some crave its attention// Anxious to meet you Ephemeral child Forgotten hauls A treasury of skeletons

Ouroboros 09:52
Ouroboros Lyrics that appear between // and // are not sung on the album but are integral to the story. The Archivist: Rivet shudder the wheeze and splutter The well of earth Drags us ever closer The roar of rocket fire The leaden heave of gravity I feel a cry is silenced by The look of hope in you Halted sea of cusped ice And canopy of forests might And in stark contrast A turmoil of desert sand And amidst this tableau The scattering of living bodies Of a tribe drawn to violent ends My presence is a portent We settle on the divined line A cleaved land, its people riven I disembark my sanctuary With you beside me, gemini Construct: Her people throng Curious and brave To greet this child Of spent epochs They approach with caution Faces marked with Chalk and charcoal A painted grimace Hides a kindness Offered with extended hands I hear the confluence of converging paths It’s meaningful! Fates assurance, Times epitaph, Serendipity In voices heed For I see her past Laid out before me Astronomical, In brass orrery Kepler’s idioms, Trenches blind piety Her fathers love To see her live Aboard my body, Enshrined in To give of His life for her To burn up with the whole world From green heart beckons Harmonising with her chord Below forests quake For the coming of my child The fires long quenched Rudiments of song Lift resonant The reed vibrato of a choral throng Laughter, prayer And lov’ed joy //Their gentle clasp with mine And together we are lead To warm envelop Songs of hearty contentment// All is forgiven, countless moments chronicled All is forgiven, of lost fortunes and grave missteps All is forgiven, as we traverse All is forgiven, amongst your living memory, All is forgiven my archivist
