1.
When you believe in lies You become what you despise A product of a broken system Based on mechanistic vision Equivocate and oscillate But you lack the power to create The molecular structure rearranging The definition always changing Look down and stare Your feet are planted in the air Look around and find Misdirection directing your mind Reality is made of wax Based on your interpretation of facts Predetermined by biology Invalidating anthropology Truth is merely what you make it When you pick any claim at all and stake it Look down and stare Your feet are planted in the air Look around and find Misdirection directing your mind
2.
Another dimension has merged with your own An altered state of consciousness has been awakened A greater purpose is becoming known The pillars of reality have been shaken In flashes of lightning Catch a glimpse of a new world dawning Through cracks in the pavement The world is breathing beneath your feet Your deepest scars become channels of light to the world Your brokenness a conduit for reconciliation You are becoming what you are You are becoming what you already are The world is infinitely larger than you thought You thought you walked along the path But there is only your trajectory The path is in the going
3.
The nations conspire and plot in vain The kingdoms of the world make their stands The rulers of the earth gather to throw off their chains The armies of men raise swords in their hands They have risen up in their eyes And plotted their own demise To overthrow their sovereign and his chosen one But they are powerless to undo what has already been done They have gathered for eternal isolation And raised swords to bring about their own final devastation From the throne, laughter gives way to resentment And the earth shudders at the approaching judgment
4.
Evisceration, introspection Self inflicted vivisection Tearing the flesh from the bone Ripping it, pulling it back Revealing beneath even deeper, darker layers Of never ending wickedness lurking within Mesmerizing darkness surrounding Consciousness descending Twisting through caverns of temporal disillusion No prospect of escape Without claws that cut more deeply Without teeth that sever more completely There's no anticipation of regeneration Without otherworldly intervention Streams of light are now emerging Through gashes in the dead This moment and forever are now converging Revealing life instead Mesmerizing brightness surrounding Consciousness ascending From beneath the wretched mass of discarded flesh From the place where there was no prospect of escape

Attune your ears to the haunting sound Of wind passing through the keyhole Down the corridors of your empty soul Dispelling Illusions of self-sufficiency Now witness the unveiling of a new paradigm Another genesis A new design Witness a change occurring The reversal of planetary motion A revolution stirring To bring about restoration Where something always comes from nothing And life only comes from non-life In a whirlpool of utter darkness A light emerges The effects of death work in reverse To make defeat into victory And all sad things to come untrue And every opposition into opportunity Dispelling Illusions Your eyes are open The cycle is broken
7.
This is a time of elimination Of surrendering hope in our autonomy This is an epoch of destruction Of discarding investments in our humanity We must relinquish any hope we've placed Misplaced trust in our posterity We must reject any confidence Confidence in our ability To reclaim our deadened souls From this plague that pervades our form To bring light out of black holes So we can be transformed If we would remain deluded Concerning the insufficiency of our mortal resonance We would just be shouting in a vacuum Trying to wake a sleeping world There must be a more powerful frequency Imperceptible to our sensory apparatus That breaks the patterns of the soul And severs stubborn hands that won’t let go Make no mistake Letting go is like death It’s like choking on your last breath
8.
Follow this thread of light That leads away from here Far from your chosen plight Into the mouth of what you fear Oh, it’s not safe But it is essential To find your way You must go By now you have discerned This is the fate you've always spurned But could not avoid It’s for this purpose you were meant Just embrace the descent And taste the silence of the void Traverse the catacombs of your mind Navigate the labyrinths you will find Knowing sure destruction lies behind With dripping fangs and grinning jaws Hungry eyes and bloodstained claws Of this you can be certain Of this there is no doubt Follow this thread of light  It is your only way out
9.
There is more to life  Than what we see  An invisible dimension of reality  Woven into the material  Threaded through the corporeal  Transcendent but immanent  Imperceptible but influential  Greater than we could ever imagine  Is the wickedness within us  Yet completely eclipsed by an even greater forgiveness  Permeating reality, the fabric of our existence  Bleeding into everything we know  There is existence beyond the walls of this world  A canvas yet to be unfurled  More than we could ever envision  Enters our realm through deep incisions  Through innocence enduring slaughter  Comes rushing in with blood and water 
10.
11.
Our voices will bring about the end of all things The oceans will resound with the fury that it brings All peoples, all nations will join the chorus Lifting a battle cry from deep within us We will move in one accord And raise our voices like a sword To call down the sky We long to bear witness to the death of death To see the rising smoke of his final breath To witness the destruction of all corruption When prideful Earth is silenced And there’s an end to violence And every ear will be ringing With the song the universe has always been singing

about

This is the 'standard mastered' version of "Depravity's Demise". This version was mixed to and mastered in 16-bit/44.1kHz with 'industry standard' post-mastering brickwall 'loudination'. The audible differences from the audiophile version are that this standard version sounds more 'loud' and 'polished', HOWEVER it is less dynamic and more compressed-sounding, has less digital headroom, as well as a less open and detailed BUT more heavy and in-your-face sound, and a hard 22kHz frequency limit (CD, FLAC) on the high-frequency content (16kHz for lossy versions: MP3, etc). If you are a fan of loudness and brutality instead of nuance, natural sound and clarity, then this is the option for you. However, if you prefer less 'slam'/volume and more detail/clarity... please purchase the audiophile version instead. (NOTE: physical CD not available for audiophile version since CD-format does not support 24-bit/96kHz rates.)

Solamors arose from a set of concepts: to blend technicality with listenability, to balance intricacy with simplicity, to produce an ebb and flow between darkness and light, brutality and gentleness... and to draw in the listener with familiarity before continually challenging their musical sensibilities to take them on a sonic journey that keeps them engaged while pushing their experience to the extremes and transcending genre boundaries.

Solamors' debut release, entitled "Depravity's Demise", typifies this approach by engaging and manipulating lyrical and musical dichotomy to produce an experience that tells a story while remaining amorphous. It embraces conceptual and musical symbolism that juxtaposes concepts of dualism with singularity, inevitability with choice and the symbolic with the literal to encourage personalized interpretation and produce a result that is simultaneously expository and equivocal in form and content.
