MrNoddy This is an absolute must for anyone who's a fan of sludge/post-metal or music in general.

Heavy, ethereal, dreamlike and beautiful in equal measures. Baryon have injected some much needed life into a genre who's greatest exponents are sadly no longer with us.

A real contender for my album of the year!

Track Name: Ordovician
As thy became serpents loss
It carried out scattered tools exhaled
free from disguise

Drepanium view from soft vessels placed
flesh, shell, calm
as our seizure gained

Decode and embody
emerge by sight
lit back as it caress
bold incoherence

You left us
blinded, fatuous
on our knees

A crisis of consciousness
fractures of our cores
transcendent but flawed
a void of empty thoughts

Decode and embody
emerge by sight
lit back as it caress
bold incoherence

They shall have chance
as we bath
in your rays
by your hands
in your shells
by your craft
we shall wrath

You left us
blinded, fatuous
on our knees
Track Name: That Night a Forest Grew
Severed, born in to plain sight
so raw, final
with given tasks

Blindness, a curtain for the lost ones
drawn and chained by
archaic fear

Rows of
indoctrinated victims
lined up for the
so crucial game

That night a forest grew

That night it grew
on bludgeoned soil
a missing carcass
an unsung hero

Rest to motion
all these root scars
this forest made of stone leaves
witnessing enlightenment

Breathe in, bleed out
on your knees, taking back
all the acts you wondered how
they came about
shards of gods that never meant to be
collected, walked over
by sacred feet

That night a forest grew
Track Name: Crown Ethereal
Father of all lies
his acts of ferocity
displayed for the world to witness and shiver
to weep under the resonance of his
devious words

Choke your god and dwell within his legacy
expel your old tradition for the highest purpose
born into benevolence on ethereal coasts

Wake up to the call of
redemption and slumber your way back
into the abyss far gone where you buried
the keys and left for good anywhere but here

Hide and pray for your sons
and as they come they bring
your crown to your knees
bend down and forced to the
coward, sold to the
harvesting age of lies and betrayed

There's a storm coming
and when it hits you shall be brought down
with your palace of bones
