about

"Ruin" is a glimpse into the dismal and apocalyptic times we live in and the future beyond humanity. It represents doom and hope and the fragile world that entwines the two. We are the only ones to blame for our demise.
A call to the wild: take our flesh, take our bones. This is our offering to your fungal soil...

"These fires may burn temporarily, but from the ashes new life grows."

Tapes to be released in the coming months...

Track Name: Fallen/Ruin
We waited too long. A city in ruins, nature in ruin. The fires burn so beautifully and tragically. This is what we’ve done. Nature reclaims and heals. The parasite of a fallen empire.
The warnings were there. The tables have turned. The death machine has fallen. Fallen.
Fallen cities struck down by nature’s hand. Collapsed buildings in ruin. In ruin…
Those who remain face endless rain from what we’ve created. Fires burn, atop heaps of a fallen world.
As we gaze out from mountain tops we wonder how we let it become. We now understand the travesty of what we’ve created. The sun falls behind a sky blackened by ash.
The poison river flows as caustic rain falls upon the once living soil…
Track Name: Offering/Growth
We gaze out toward the horizon to see the poison water flood in. The endless rain falls. A call to the flora and fauna. We ask for forgiveness. We ask for forgiveness. Those who cannot speak any longer. We could not hear your calls; we chose not to feel your pain. Now we understand. Now we understand…
Nature has turned its back. Civilization became a parasite. We hope to become feral again. Nature has turned its back. Civilization became a parasite. We hope to become feral again…
Apocalyptic darkness may fall. Though we may fall, we offer our flesh. Decompose into fungal soils, rekindle the flame of life. We offer our bones, from which trees can grow. Once again fauna may wander. Up from the concrete plants will grow.
These fires may burn temporarily, but from the ashes new life grows.
Forgive us…
