In three years, I have recorded this song 12 times. At least 5 of those versions have been on here, including the original 22 minute composition which few members made it through laugh.gif

This is still quite lengthy, but this is like my baby. Musically its solidifies the direction I wish to go in almost completely, extensive lyrics within multiple narratives, synth solos, guitar solos. So If anyone manages to take the time and listen to all of it, it will be a great experience I hope. This also included a favorite solo of mine, somewhere in between 11:30 and 13 minutes, has my first 6 string sweeping run that I used in a song ( I usually end up trashing them ) but this one came out cool.

Three new solos, a new narrated intro with drums/ synth, and the best mix to date for this. I hope you like!

Sit back and follow the lyrics and enjoy the tragic end to Earth!

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Extinction:
Swarming The Sun
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

01: Arrival

The Swarm:
Rudimentary creatures of blood and flesh, you touch my mind
Fumbling in ignorance, incapable of understanding
We are eternal. The pinnacle of evolution and existence
Before us you are nothing, your extinction is inevitable
We are the end of everything

My kind transcends your very understanding
We are each a nation: Independent, free of all weakness
You cannot even grasp the nature of our existence
We impose order on the chaos of organic evolution
You exist because we allow it
And you will end...


Because we demand it.

02: A Gaze Shifted

Atlas-Altheriel
It all began as he drifted away
Passing by Saturn he saw them all
A massive armada dwarfing our worlds
Treading voids through to Earth

And then a voice, drew his focus
Distant and vague, an alien tongue

The words somehow, he understood

Atlas-Rigel

You will soon be the last, the only

Vincent
Alien voices seeped inside
Whispering of impending doom
The universe inhales anxiously
To bate it's breath for the coming storm

The Swarm
You only exist because we allow it
And you will end because we demand it

Atlas-Rigel
Follow the stars into dark space
Expand to survive, or conquer and die

Atlas-Altheriel
Hands against the glass he watches on
As Mars is razed by the drifting swarm
Unseen watchers make their presence known
As the third child is soon consumed

Atlas-Rigel
Your mind will be shaped to formlessness
To understand the concepts of eternity
You are the spatial architect
The ambassador of baryonic forms

The Swarm
We will end you...

Vincent
Alien voices blast their chords
Shouting of the impending doom
The universe exhaled a mighty wind
It's breath to become infinite storms

The Swarm
You only exist because we allow it
And you will end because we demand it
A feeble attempt from the fleshy machines
Expand to survive, or fight and die

Atlas-Rigel

A gaze distant
Shifts...
It's focus

03: Harbinger Of Destruction

The Swarm
Pulling against their laws and forces
Gravity, Light, Newton and Einstein
Admirable are your feeble attempts
But the Sovereign's eye, cannot allow this

We are infinite, undying
Limitless
You
Mere flesh
Pure bacteria

The insects on the anthill of Earth
Know not the forms, that they attract
Manipulate the laws in place
Shall bring a harbinger of pure destruction


04: Earth In Flames
Instrumental

05: Trawled

Atlas-Rigel
The mind of man is trawled
The knowledge to rebuild
Recreate
Redefine
The cosmic law

Vincent
What do you want with me?
Why have I been brought here?
Tell me now who you are!
Tell me what has happened!

Atlas-Rigel
All your worlds are cast to ash
Everything you know, gone!

Vincent
This cannot be happening
What about everything I left?

Atlas-Rigel

There is nothing that can be done
All that remains is space and them

Vincent/ Atlas-Rigel
Why all this? Why me?
You are the one who must rebuild

06: Swarming The Sun


Atlas-Altheriel
Sovereigns unknown swarm the sun
Their vast numbers have darkened our sky
Massive machines dwarf our worlds
And wrap their arms around the shell of Earth

The sky goes black and a shadow is cast
The human race is pushed into dark

Sovereign's arms slowly crush the Earth
Cracks cross continents like erupting veins

Vincent
Alien voices blast their chords
To sanctify our impending doom
Cosmic prophet of galactic law
Declaration of sentient death

The Swarm
You only exist because we allow it
And you will die because we demand it
A feeble attempt from the fleshy machines
leaves a tiny mark on the cosmic time line

Atlas-Rigel
Their gaze, distant
Shifts...
It's focus

The Swarm
There is a realm of existence so far beyond your own you cannot even imagine it
I am beyond your comprehension, I am Sovereign.

Why do I feel the urge to use your lyrics and put them to a upbeat Beiberesque pop tune laugh.gif

The guitar work is really precise, I thought the first solo was a synth using a midi pattern. I've a long way to go to get to that speed and clean playing.

I just heard the first 5 minutes and I'm impressed!! This sounds so professional! You should start promoting this piece more because I'm sure that many people will love it. Well done. smile.gif

The first solos was originally guitar, but I thought on guitar it sounded like an exercise. So then I just made it a synth, added some minor things and kept it not too prevalent in the mix and I quite like it. Its more for atmospheric effect than a full front solo.

Wow! This is pretty darn Epic man! Have you approached some of the new "Copy Left" and "Artists Rights" type record lables about releasing your work? There are several right now focused on Metal. I don't want to pimp any particular one, but here is a link to all of the lables currently on BANDCAMP who focus on Metal. Some of which are open to unsolicited submissions. I'm all about DIY, but having a relationship with a lable that is more in to the music than the money could really help get the word out.
