Straight X Fucked It's good to find a quality tech death album these days considering that the genre has more or less been taken over by poser Hot Topic bands and ambitious haircuts.
Lots of face melting, a cornucopia of tones and plenty of surprises between start to finish. This is Definitely polished and at times even catchy but I implore you to suspend your lo-fi pretensions and embrace this masterfully-executed recording.

about

Download includes art cover and lyrics of 'Entheogen'.

This is the second album by the Central American band. The thirteen-track album delivers head melting death metal, intricate melodies, punishing percussion and guttural vocals, and all the while a dark undertone unashamedly sweeps through to hook the listener and deliver a 62-minute creative opus.

“A savage death metal assault, loaded with dark, vicious riffs, jolting grooves, exotic melodies, electrifying solo work, and horrific roars and shrieks… It’s an obviously ambitious work – and a highly successful one, both atmospheric and electrifying.’- No Clean Singing

“Entheogen is a death metal release for the ages, scoring waves of cacophonous sound on top of crushing angular riffs…Taking elements that have been germinating in the scene for years Corpse Garden have now come to take your fucking head.” - Two Guys Metal Reviews

“With its tactful display of blistering-paced drums, gritty vocals and whiplash-riffs…Entheogen is a tour de force that will keep many passionate Death Metal addicts entertained.” – Global Metal Apocalypse

“Complex riffing interwoven with catchy melodies…the music hits you hard and is relentless in its delivery” - Metal Album Reviews

“Dark and heavy – just the way we like it” - Zero Tolerance Magazine UK

Track Name: The Quantum Rapture
Wandering down the path to ethereal morphosis
The voyage for the truth
Dwelling in the core of existence
The primordial substance
Immaculate and pure

I feel compelled to reveal this greater knowledge
The decaying nature of this world reduces me to nothing

All this dread reigning day by day
Perverse and wretched consequence
Of mankind's naive insolence
Fuels my thirst for occult intelligence

The fatal traits of this reality balance forces of opposite origin
Ending the delusion of morality, I am chaos and chaos I shall be

Restoring the ancient order
Symbols lead the way to transcendence
Uniting the Self and the unconscious
Becoming the seer of awakening

The Third Eye will guide my steps
As I venture through the unknown
Both the end and the beginning
Are confined in my flesh

Abandoning my physical form
Free of the three great illusions
I reach for a level of divine wisdom to become whole

The Third Eye will guide my steps
As I venture through the unknown
Both the end and the beginning
Are confined in my flesh

Restoring the ancient order
Symbols lead the way to transcendence
Uniting the Self and the unconscious
Becoming the seer of awakening
Track Name: Portal to the Oneiric
The realm of dreams remain yet unexplored
Hidden inside every one of us
The destination has been acknowledged
Conjunction with the material world

Intangible but present
A domain beyond our perception
Godless infinity
Embrace the absolution

Unconscious visits throughout our lifespan
Revealing signs to fulfill our destiny

Intangible but present
A domain beyond our perception
Godless infinity
Embrace the...

Persona
The mask hiding the truth
Shadow
Forsaken demon
Anima
Guide us through the fog
Wise elder
The purest of forms

Portal to the oneiric

Indivisible
Navigating the cosmos
As one with eternity
Track Name: Suspended Over the Abyss
Inward journey of spiritual purge
Cleansing of the soul
Release me from this carnal state
Dissolve and coagulate

Prelude to transformation
Into the whispering dark
Stripping of all emotion
Reveal the true essence of man

Floating above the void
Transcending to a higher dimension
Seeking for the inner light
Ascension, ego must die

Ongoing transmutation
Now part of the eternal black
Ridden of all devotion
Return to the primal state

Absorbed into the chasm
Superior plane of existence
Behold unfound reality
Ascension, ego must die

In the depth of the cave
The Black Dragon awaits
To proceed with the quest for light
The beast will devour itself
When the cycle comes to an end
From obscurity it will rise again

Fire ignites my conscience
In shadows the raven flies free
Deforms false perceptions within

The piercing silence of the abyss
Deforms everything once perceived as real
Profound isolation in the maze of the mind
Opens the door to forgotten realities
Degradation towards the neutral state
Track Name: Evoking a Dead Sun
Process of decay, decomposition
All matter vanishes mysteriously
Surrounded by infinite darkness to find light in the hollow

Summoning of the fiery flame
Invocation of burning rage
Set ablaze these despicable ways with mercyless might

The great liberator
Our father, the Sun
from his slumber will arise
To emancipate us mortals of our impending demise

The flame grows higher
Time has now ceased to exist
The Sacred fire from aeons past burns once again

Evoking a Dead Sun

Erase the misconception
Free the mind of deceit
The false tales of creation
Scorched, burnt to a crisp

The great liberator
Our father, the Sun
from his slumber will arise
With the promise of death

The flame grows higher
Incinerating my skin
The Sacred fire is now consuming me

The pain is excruciating
My flesh begins to deform
The torture is never ending
Burning forevermore

Everything I once knew reduced to waste
This feeble life has been swept away

From the ashes of this world
A new one must be born

The ember of divine destruction has completed its work
Track Name: Sulphur
The unbearable stench of death
Remnant of the purging fire
Travels through the air above this funeral pyre

Water now fills this abyss
The land we used to habit
Consumed in unconscious slavery
To wash away our misery

Corpses floating astray
Amidst the rust and debris
Dissolution of the ashes into a single substance

Impurities streaming away
Exposing the naked soul
Left helpless and vulnerable

I witness as my body dissolves into nothingness
The fear of the unknown ravages my existence

Bringer of light
Illuminate my path
Enligthen me to your ways
Grant me your infinite wisdom
Morning Star
I am at your command

Impurities streaming away
Exposing the naked soul
Left helpless and vulnerable

I witness as my body dissolves into nothingness
The fear of the unknown ravages my existence
(x2)

Renewal:

Energy flows from another plane
Flooding the chambers of my spirit

The Soul Bird ascends into eternity
Beyond the reach of the eye
Await its return from immensity
And with low soul forces it will reunite
Track Name: The First Incarnation
Rebirth of the true self in a golden cradle
Majestic spawn of the sun
Glorious intervention, the First Incarnation

A new vision acquired to conquer the unseen
Discerning with higher levels of understanding
The son of Soul and Spirit has been reawakened
To divide the unworthy from the sacred

Rebirth of the true self in a golden cradle
Majestic spawn of the sun
The First Incarnation

Cast away in the vault of oblivion
Long forgotten essence rediscovered

I detach myself from these imposed patterns
The chains that bind me are now diminished
Overthrown by the greatness within me
The true wild nature unleashed

The black bird descending into the atmosphere
Divides itself in two different ones
Bearing an essence from the spiritual world
To undergo the process of separation
Track Name: A Balance of Opposites
That which is above corresponds to that which is below
Unifying the essence of the earth with the divine
To conceive the hermaphrodite child
Mediator between worlds

Filius philosophorum
Your eyes see with no distortion
Balancing the opposites

Superior than reason and thought
Conscious and the unconscious become one
Perfection of human form
Mastering the environment

Filius philosophorum
Your eyes see with no distortion
Balancing the opposites

Lift the Quintessence to the realm of the One Mind

That which is below corresponds to that which is above
Track Name: Emerald Vision
Child of the Union, death is your destiny
Like every mortal, your flesh will rot
To be the soil and fertilize the seed
Decomposing, resurrection in spirit

The gift of Venus
The powers from Above
Cosmic blessing for the Spiritual Warrior

Limitless energy reanimates my being
Beyond the boundaries of the human mind
A golden stream flows from my blackened soul
Purification divine

The gift of Venus
The powers from Above
Cosmic blessing for the Spiritual Warrior

The lion devours the Sun
I embrace illumination
The lasting enlightenment
I've achieved the Emerald Vision

The fifth ray of the Azoth points to the Ascended Essence
Touching the Spiritus, the ultimate revelation
Track Name: Red Pulvis Solaris
Phoenix
All the torment you have endured
The time has come to rise again
From the vortex of anguish and doom

Cleansing through pain
Reborn in grace

Manifesting my second body
A flawless entity of light
Ethereal and magnificent
In between Matter and Mind

Mystic forces of duality

Existing in all levels of reality
Travelling through dimensions at will
The astral body, the vessel for eternity
The Ultima Materia has been released

Red Pulvis Solaris

The Elixir runs through my veins
Healing, reviving, regenerating

Cleansing through pain
Reborn in grace
Mystic forces of duality

The crowning process
Corporeal cravings undone
I am all, I am One
