H.L. This is well played melodic death metal for adults. Everybody who likes old Amorphis ("Tales from the 1000 lakes"-period) or other melodic dark metal bands from Finland like Rapture or the like, maybe old Paradise Lost, will be "happy" with this soulful dark release. Especially the guitar work is brilliant. The deep growling vocals are a kind of aggressive contrast to the clear and light sounding guitars. Good job! Favorite track: The Void of Souls.

about

South Texas melodic death/doom metal act, Nethermost, presents to you their first full length album, Noetic. This release is the follow-up to their debut EP Alpha edited by Hypnotic Dirge Records in 2013. Noetic was mixed and mastered by the prolific producer Marco Santini at Antigravity Studios in London, UK. The album takes a voyage to the outer realms of our perceived existence, and down abstruse pathways conveying a diverse blend of dismal hymns, alongside an unyielding inflection with singularity marking a delicate sonic domain paved by mesmerizing melodies, intelligent lyrics and heavy drum sounds all intertwined in a simple, yet effective emotional blueprint.

Nethermost gained significant recognition from the underground with the release of Alpha in 2013 performing successful shows throughout Texas and Mexico. The band has also appeared in countless webzines, radio-shows, and a television promotion of the video Phasing Currents on national television.

Furthermore, the band continues to forge towards the depths of charade to frame the looming continuum that pervades amongst us, and carry on the directives of the uncharted passage.

Noetic will be released via Horror Pain Gore Death Productions on September 2, 2014 and will be soon available for pre-order. Fans of old Katatonia, Rapture and Daylight Dies won't be disappointed!

Track Name: Matrix Divine
A boxed up purlieu
Intention to delude
As we reach so far to fall again
The elite so strong
Oversee us in Abysm

The origins of consciousness
Simulate an ambience

They produce an endless
Of bogus realness
Displays are shined infinite from the realms up high
Transform reality

Predesigned operations
Mechanized projections

In the mind we are sent
From shades behind, Moirai is met
Hearing words that guide aside
Into the doors that lock up time

Mysterious cryptic ground
Oblivion besieges thee
Feeble minds froze in line

Seas of life, trees of gates
Consist of lies, Held in wait
Yearning the end, hope and fear
Which we defend, the path is near

Imperious, chime the sound
To coalesce, meet freely
Weakest trace marked in place

Arrays in order
Emit in scores
The controls defined escalate
We proceed to rise
Complete matrix divine

Break away designations
Execute evocations
Track Name: Weald Realms
Arise first Eden
The role of essence
The halls of minds and dreams
Held within
The souls of time between
Locked therein

Sheds embrace
Hand upon
The vital polygon

Forming Earth
Strengthened stance
Enchanting deepest glance

Present scopes
Gleaming limbs
The hearts of seraphims

The wisdomed ones
From times undone

As they lock away the entrance
In present time we remain unbroken
A pause in time held between the weald realm
The ancient domain whist linked unknown
The fortified structures sound

Dawn of life, set aligned, intertwined
The strands proceed, endlessly
Like from a dream conceived

Abdona
Godess
Listening
Druantia
Highness
Shields thee

Sheds embrace
Hand upon
The vital polygon

Forming Earth
Strengthened stance
Enchanting deepest glance

Present scopes
Gleaming limbs
The hearts of seraphims

The wisdomed ones
From times undone

Now we move to fade through passage
The final sight as we stray eternal
The mystified circle’s ground

Roads through ageless shrines
Point to the veiled lines

Dawn of life, set aligned, intertwined
The strands proceed, endlessly
Like from a dream conceived
Track Name: The Void of Souls
Devoid
Emptied out
Crushed by sans

Sections decline
While tensions take in
Obscure, yet stark
Absurd derangements

Bereft
Incorporate
Hell by hand

With strength abound
Will gather within

The vacant and blank
To consume throughout

Inward drifts, blacken lives
A mental mist of intrusive vibes

To the beckon of fiends
Swarm within
As we’re pillaged by beasts
Impelled to spin
Further down the void of souls

A voice extends and grips the weak
Fractions elude, portions exude

Usurped
Authorized vice of man

The chasm unsung
Starts breaking with holds
A wicked deluge
To conquer the core

To the beckon of fiends
Swarm within
As we’re pillaged by beasts
Impelled to spin
Further down the void of souls
Track Name: Nous Alliance
Witnessed time as we rose near
Seconds froze then life was clear
Stepped away on clouds of flight
Hereby, moments paved the place for eyes

Aimlessly within our reach
Eternally where we unleash

The common grasped belief
The sense of soul we keep
It’s rules turning rare
Inherent of the air

What we hold, set in stone
Undethroned
An essential cast of ages past
Composed amassed

The mystic rites defiant
As the roots lead ahead
Internal it spread
Outward to restore cognizance
Ascend to deter consequence

The source infinity
Held close but deeply
Proficiencies we share
Now enemies beware
Coming raid, bids to sway
A pure charade
An entangled bout to cancel out
Is disallowed

Drifted back to senses known
Created schism as we’ve grown
Meetings bear the keys that link serene
Measure mankind’s strength left unseen
Endlessly supercede mortality
As we achieve

The common grasped belief
The sense of soul we keep
It’s rules turning rare
Inherent of the air

What we hold, set in stone
Undethroned
An essential cast of ages past
Composed amassed

Coming raid, bids to sway
A pure charade
An entangled bout to cancel out
Is disallowed

The mystic rites defiant
As the roots lead ahead
Internal it spread
Outward to restore cognizance
Ascend to deter consequence
Track Name: Synergos
Adjoining in
Forces of vim
A bridging throughout
Gone aloud

Creating ties, broad alive, we derive
Equating souls, great and low, decontrolled

A banded mass
Thriving vast
Sewn in accord
Held in gird

Eos
Synergos
Gaea
Hymen

Process in union, endeavors remit
Seeking the real forsaken core
Dreaming reveals a nascent door

Synthesis to coalesce
Apotheosis

The age of our light intertwined
Learned as we meet
Unforeseen

Creating ties, broad alive, we derive
Equating souls, great and low, decontrolled

Synthesis to coalesce
Apotheosis
Track Name: Arcanum
Built our doom spreading fumes
The skies unclean as we convene
To reconvert decay Absurd

Sedation
Filters through
In between from machines
A nation we salute
Of deceit
Furtive Regime

To the edge of the azure deep
Forms of rot brush utmost peaks
Blight released

A body strong poised atop
As gases disperse
We averse
In lines combined
Mobilized

Rebellion dexterous
Entities unreprieved
Cessation nebulous
To impede
No retreat

Marked ahead in the clouds of scheme
Soaring high then we seep
Rushed defeat

Undermined
Out of line
People blind
Abide

As the poison is clear
Never adhere
Reunite Arised

Sentinels of long ago
Form a role to close
The seeds of shade
Grand decay
A myriad unfolds

Engulfing winds of pretense
Insidious affixed

A seclusion of sort
Aimed to thwart
By exhort, desist

Above the streams of the waste undone
Cloaked in light enigmatic ones

Arcanum

Undermined
Out of line
People blind
Abide

As the poison is clear
Never adhere
Reunite Arised

Sentinels of long ago
Form a role to close
The seeds of shade
Grand decay
A myriad unfolds
Track Name: Sphere Caliginous
Behold a host
Unbeknown
A race displaced
Drifts without a trace
Their eyes, red bright
In dark disguise
Elude and unviewed
Evidence subdued

Attested in fear
With intent much unclear
In midst of the day
Minds and hearts in dismay

A soul stifled
Sub-controlled
The shades attain
Serve to captivate
Precise divide of matter and light
They loom in gloom on the fullest moon

Bane of souls
A nocturnal assault intrudes in our thought
Bleakest form
Found in plain sight
The sons of the night

In sight periphery
A perplexity
Obscure entities
Felt with gravity
Low frequencies
Shadow Galaxies

Ranging between the grids
Locking Paralysis
Transfixed in violence
Heinous elusiveness

Thriving beyond the dead
Stalking powerless
Helix of virulence
Sphere Caliginous

Attested in fear
With intent much unclear
In midst of the day
Minds and hearts in dismay

Bane of souls
A nocturnal assault intrudes in our thought
Bleakest form
Found in plain sight
The sons of the night
Of the night
Track Name: Order of Mithra
God of Rome, long ago
Intrinsic of the stone

Laws that bind ones assigned
Of mithraic kind

Fruits unseared, deep and clear
Objects once revered

Present tomb, time immune
In the mithraeum

The unamassed sacred class
Chosen to surpass

Corax
Nymphus
Miles
Leo

Order of Mithra

Corax
Nymphus
Miles
Leo

Order of Mithra

Accession unsealed
Obsessions revealed
Damascus steel
Emerged upraised
With weapon ablazed
All embraced

Once bestowed, undethroned
Endlessly invoked

Abounding eyes, potent rise
Guiding from the skies
