Nicolas RESSOT Moins stéréotypé que l'album précédent, Primitives est un album qui, tout en restant réservé aux initiés, reste accessible. J'espère seulement que TRCC saura trouver sa propre identité sans verser dans les refrains systématiques en chant clair et les voix féminines. à voir...espérons.... Favorite track: Primitives.

EC I love this record. From start to finish its an absolute masterpiece. I love all the inspiration in this album. There is a lot going on, so many cleans and build up parts that give me goosebumps. Also all the heavy parts. You can find me head banging and singing along with this record. Will always have a special spot on my phone or iPod.

Track Name: Instinct
Behold a new creature born in blood, poses a threat to earths inhabitants
The biological prototypes that came before found equilibrium
A deafening storm approaches the earthly biosphere created by
A species of consumption, unaware of the damage they’ve done
Relies on its most primal means of survival, its instinct
Early instincts demand a society built on competitive commerce and the exploitation of the earth, as technology progresses individual values become more obsolete yet ubiquitous among the species creating chaos
Death awaits us all, if we remain prisoners to ourselves
We must transcend our own humanity or die
Primate or virus? self-classification denies a truth of our nature (denies the truth of our nature)
A self-perpetuated delusion, justified by the truth at our very core (x2)
Track Name: Apex Predator
From a primordial state to the apex predator
A technological warrior, has arisen from the earth
Nations of hunters, prey upon each other seeking the death of their own kind
Eliminate opposition and exploit their resources in order to survive
Authority derived from a deluded means of force (derived from force)
Systematic fear instilled in the populace to gain control
A warrior culture whose only directive is destruction and the domination of a continent in an ecosystem of balanced species one arises as a virus called man
Expose, Resist the predator within you (x2)
A beacon is burning
A beacon is burning, calling us like moth to a flame showing the path to a new way of life for all, a new way of life for all…
Track Name: Primitives
Evolve beyond the questions of futility is something we must learn to survive
Living with this sense of ancestral behavior how can we self-sustain without preservation?
Frozen in a state of mind, like a barricade we can't break from. Forward progression is essential, otherwise man will become consumed by his own consumption and render the earth void of all sentient life
What happens when everything is gone?
This system of imposed values has lead us to the brink of death
Our technology has outpaced our social advancement creating the illusion of a modern species
Proving our primitive nature, still trying to control our world is barbaric
Is this the pinnacle of our potential? What can we become, what can we become
Listen to your heart and know we can be much more
What can we become (x4)
Track Name: Questions of Origin
Being (being), step beyond your constraints, all your limits and confusion and witness your potential
Devoid of all knowledge beyond death, play God (play God) in comfort for the answers will come from within
The questions granted the power to build structures on the backs of men, stories told from birth to evade the wages of our sins
We don’t know (we don’t know), We don’t know just admit that
We don’t know (we don’t know), We don’t know the truth
Dig deep, dig deeper and you will find the roots a presence lingers in the ether, dig deeper and you will find the roots a presence lingers in the ether (repeat)
Human what makes you deserve this? The knowledge will destroy you
I am God, in time the veil on your eyes will fade away, and all constructs you have built will be no more
The violence in your nature is the product of your own design a crucial step in the evolution of the mind could be the end
This is a question of origin; man has yet to answer a prerequisite to be deemed advanced, civilized and prosperous in the eyes of the stars and the inhabitants of a universe so vast we fail to see the design
I am God, in time the veil on your eyes will fade away, and all constructs you have built will be no more
Track Name: Survivalist Notion
A rebirth of consciousness to see ourselves as one, the unity of all mankind has now begun
To shift our motion towards our own survival
The survivalist notions arises in an epoch of distorted men, a values system meant to conceal the nature of the self, the cycle repeats itself again and again until we’re all dead
We dream, we built our foundation on sinking sands, we dream we build the future for all of man
Be still and see yourself from the outside in, quiet the mind and hear the beauty of our earth and feel the nothingness, the nothingness from which we came
Out of the world, and let your mind sync with the divine
So feel the earth beneath you, and know it’s you within, survival depends on it, survival depends on perception
A rebirth of consciousness to see ourselves as one, a vibrant young species has yet to become aware, that they hold the key to their own survival in their minds, a confusion of their symbols with reality, repeats the cycle, again and again until we’re all dead
We dream, we built and empire on sinking sands
What we dreamt, what we built is our heritage
Track Name: The Atlas Artifact
What is the legacy man leaves behind for the future generations?
Consider this question and know our children will see that we failed to act in accordance with our natural surroundings and set in motion our own extinction
We have no one to blame but ourselves
This life blood coursing through all our veins is poisoned (poisoned)
This game has gone on long enough
The legacy of man must Change forever....
We are the catalyst for a new beginning, we hold the answers to suffering in our hearts
We hold the future in our hands
This is a metamorphosis of man, from which there is no escape (from which there is no escape)
We live in a delusional state of existence pretending we're not god destroying our own creation
Slow the blood, in your veins and feel yourself drifting away (x4)
Answer to the atlas artifact answer to the depths from which we came the mother of our being
Take off your mask, begin seeing the void and stop seeking yourself only then will man evolve
See that we're infinite, separateness is a myth, and we will emerge a new being, no longer primitives ( a new being)
