fathead dog I was hooked on these guys when I heard "Primitives", so I already knew that they are phenomenal band. However, I was really taken back by the direction they went with this album, but not in a bad way. The contrast between the hard hitting and atmospheric parts in the music come together so well! This album will definitely attract more fans. I definitely recommend getting all their albums, these guys are sick! Favorite track: Introspection feat. Larry Ivy.

Slammer Just found this - complex and enormous sound. Fantastic!!! This album gets better the more you listen to it. Favorite track: Perception II: The Silent Mind feat. Aleksandra Radosavljevic.

Tyler Gorski Another absolute masterpiece in the progressive metal world, and music as a whole. More melody, technicality, and brand new sounds keep every song fresh. TRCC never disappoints.

Track Name: An Awareness
An Awareness, is growing within
within us
we are, we are the source of light
an awareness is growing within
Track Name: Perception I: An Awareness
Existence is more than is seems it is your perception what do you see?
Existence is more than a dream it is your perception that will set you free.
We are the source of being, where time knows no end
An infinity trapped inside the finite hearts of men
An awareness is growing within, within us
Existence is more than a dream it is your perception that will set you free
Existence is more than is seems it is your perception what do you see?
Like a child sees for the first time
The world is formed through our very eyes
We are alive
A fire in the mind
An awareness is growing within
Within Us
Track Name: Exist in Abstraction feat. Aleksandra Djelmas
(I) I am sentience. (We) We are the hive.
Our cohesive cognizance; That which brings our world alight.
A world bathed in thought
A universe created by the Mind
A reality that we have wrought
Eyes wide shut, they keep us blind
Will you remain a cog within this automaton? Or can you break free and Liberate our Hive?
We must absolve this blind form of cognition, open our minds, and see the light
A world bathed in thought
A universe created by the Mind
A reality that we have wrought
Eyes wide shut, they keep us blind
We Exist in abstraction, an illusion on the inside
(We) we are sentient. (Now) Now there is no hive.
Our cohesive cognizance; That which finally opened our eyes.
Track Name: Introspection feat. Larry Ivy
I am the witness I am forever
I am the witness that lies within
I watch from the depth transcend all illusion (shapeless, formless)
I’m an eternal resonance with no end
Mental mountains keep us apart (separate)
Two Halves divided from the very ground in which we are (Separate)
From your feelings, watch them passing through you
A breath of light is whispering
Quiet the inside to hear it calling to you, Calling to you…
I am not this body, I am not these thoughts
I’m the eye that sees, the one I call me
The true self you forgot
You are a lens through which I see the beauty of creation, watch it pass through you like the wind
Only then will you see the witness that’s within you…
Breathe in Breathe out release your anxiety
A moment of clarity will open your mind to possibilities
Believe the possibility that you are bigger than your dreams
Believe the possibility that you are more than it would seem
You are a lens through which I see the beauty of creation, watch it pass through you like the wind
Only then will you see the witness that’s within (2x) you…
An infinite power, shrouded from my eyes but the very earth bears witness to its existence
Revealing a simple truth, I am the witness I am forever
Track Name: A Polarity feat. Jonathan Carpenter
Beyond, where the lights non existent. From the depths of ourselves unexplored,
The search for a balance between poles of existence with present moment ignored.
accept impermanence and you can see the truth of your being
In a flash all distinctions will pass words will be lost and language will lose all meaning
A strange feeling is overcoming me all sense of separation dissolved.
We all suffer because we look to the future that will never come
Omnipotence is our true state shadowed by desire We can never know our own fate control the fire
Behold The awareness a mind like fire unbound ...
Can you feel it? Can you feel it within you?
Can you feel it, the one true reality that holds breath within your lungs
Can you feel your consciousness the unyeilding power that it holds
Born, born from death we exist within polarity
For the moment has come and I can see with all clarity
We are the source of light But we have lived a lie
Can you feel that fire? Building up inside
The two selves I once knew must now divide
Can you feel that fire
Hear me now and feel my words Ignite the fire
Hear me now and feel my words Ignite the fire in your heart
Return to the void the true self that we know
Break through. Destroying the ego.
From extinction life is born
Track Name: Perception II: The Silent Mind feat. Aleksandra Radosavljevic
Existence is more than it seems, it is your perception what do you see?
Reality is our conception it is our invention to be shaped by the mind
A cycle never ending, concept undefined
To be shaped by the mind, a cycle never ending concept undefined
We are the aperture through which the eye of god sees
We are the mouth through which all of consciousness breathes

To know this will set you free (set you free)
To know this will set you free (set you free)
Just feel the moment, infinite in time. It’s all just in your mind…
Just feel the moment
Beyond ourselves is a peace that can be found within
For the first time I am alive, awake with a silent mind
Living now and forever
An awareness is growing within and now I see

We are the aperture through which the eye of god sees
We are the mouth through which all of consciousness breathes

Existence is more than it seems, it is your perception what do you see?
Track Name: Perception III: The Veil That Conceals feat. Aleksandra Radosavljevic
Now I see, all this is really me a universe within.
The veil that conceals that which is real, we must transcend…We must transcend
An infinite power, shrouded from my eyes we are everlasting we're outside of time
Entangled in thoughts you get lost, look at what you forgot
I have silenced my mind now the veil is aside and all the worlds unlocked
This altered state has left me with an emptiness words can not describe
Am I God or am I man I can not decide
Time means nothing to me Because I see birth and death can not be escaped and balance must be attained
We are the sum of everything the whole of existence torn apart
Now I see, all this is really me a universe within. The veil that conceals that which is real, we must transcend
To see ourselves as separate shells, such a myopic lens
An awareness have grown within, we are the source of light with no beginning or end
We are the source of being, where time knows no end, and infinity trapped inside the finite hearts of men
Now I see, this is really me (a universe within) the veil that conceals, conceals that which is real
We must transcend
