Dan Curhan Really interesting progtechdeath from ex-Cynic and Defeated Sanity members. It's three tracks of coherently twisty and unpredictable death metal, full of unusual note selection, harmonized and dissonant clean vocals, and intelligent songwriting. The production is tight and clear, and the songs are dynamic, engaging and fun.

Sigloomic An entrancing waltz of brutality awaits anyone who's willing to take a step inside the shattered reality this EP harbors. "All it takes is a little spark..." Favorite track: Wonder.

Track Name: Wonder
It’s a sound you can’t hear
Distractions that you feel
Feelings that never stay
But the sights far away
It’s as real as can be
Manifests in front of me

It’s a sound you can’t hear
But you’ll see
Distractions you just know
Never leave
But you’ll see

Reality fades

And the mind, it starts to wander off, and in its place is
Blank canvas dream
Given time, it starts to all come to real life
Always there, but that’s not how it really seems

Changing colors with a sound
Flashing lights swirling around
I can see it, but it’s not there
All those colors...
Who’s to say that it can’t be real
Not just something we feel

Visions, decisions, in the dark
All it takes is a little spark to ignite
I know it sounds like I’ve lost my mind
But what I saw I swear I saw
Who’s to say that it can’t be real
Not just something we feel
Suppressed for too long it can’t be ideal

Wonder is what this is,
Eyes to the sky and mouth wide open
Fearful
Filled with shock
Let the feeling take you over
Hearing sounds you cannot hear, seeing patterns you cannot see
It’s real
I swear it’s real
It manifests in front of me

It’s real
It’s just something we feel

It fades
And the mind, it starts to wander off,
And in its place is
Blank canvas dream

Given time it starts to all go back to real life,
It’s real
It’s real
We feel
Track Name: Mushroom Song
Stay awake
I’m too far into it to bring myself to sleep
Another second and I lost another moment
I’m tired but it’s not torment
The lights are too bright, I can’t...
What does this mean?

It must be all a dream

I can’t sleep

Seeing God through my pillow
Was the light red?
Was is yellow?

Be quiet, mind

Can’t you see? It’s yours to keep
Leave me be? Don’t leave me be
Once I sleep, my dreams won’t keep
When I sleep, and if I sleep again

Stay awake
A day and night gone by with so much, have I seen
I’m struggling to process all this information
Cyclical divine equation
The lights are so bright, I can’t...
I think I met God

Or maybe I’m just high

I can’t sleep

Seeing God through my pillow
Was the light red?
Was is yellow?

Can’t you see? It’s yours to keep
Leave me be? Don’t leave me be
Once I sleep, my dreams won’t keep
When I sleep, and if I sleep again

Can you make out what I’ve said to you?
My friends say:
“That’s ok... You just need some rest. Give it a rest”
Talking outside my door to my family

Can’t you see? It’s yours to keep
Leave me be? Don’t leave me be
When I sleep, my dreams won’t keep
When I sleep
And if I sleep

Let me be, just let me be...
Leave me be, but please hear me...
When I sleep, my dreams won’t keep
When I sleep
And if I sleep again
Track Name: Tomorrow Awaits
I’ve
Been
Here
before
Now, again

We’re here… Light is fading faster, days are gone, swallowed by the sky
Used to seeing stars, feeling like I want to die
It’s true
How I wish I had said better things

I know I’m so
Self-critical
My apathy
Is fantasy
Can’t let it go… Staring down a well, pity overwhelming me,
Way up high
Clouds are parting quickly, make way, the effect I know

How I wish I had said better things
For myself
So critical
I’m pitiful
And miserable
I’ll let it go
when I have read
Into my head
I’ll tell myself I should’ve said
“Look there, way up high, you’ll see the clouds clear the way for tomorrow’s sky”

It will come, tomorrow,
and it waits for you, just someone we all know
It’s there, all day, we’ll dream of how tomorrow wasn’t there

So self-critical
derivative
and primitive
I’ll let it go
when I have read
what I have said
Won’t let myself go
Make way for tomorrow knows what,
What goes
Look to see tomorrow
It goes

Fly through the blue screen for warmth in victims' empathy
Neglect that the cure hides inside
We pull the reins of the truths that are revealed to be
Steer wisely amidst days you breathe
