Ominous thumbnail
Ominous Amorphous’ signature dark tones in a fury that, while disarmingly melancholic and moody, is no less unrelenting. This move away from the abrasive grind and pound of Gil's Morgue Mechanism form project. Excellent! Highly recommended! Favorite track: Irreversible feat. Torsykes.
Luna Negra

Luna Negra Crossway between Oldschool EBM and Dark Electro, just the perfect EBM/Industrial hybrid artist, solid and high quality production. Favorite track: Antisocial.

The Epilektrician This is a great album with a retrospective focus, reminiscent of late 80s early 90s EBM/dark electro acts. Very recommended! Favorite track: Tabula Rasa.

Track Name: Second Nature
[ second nature ]

what is a mystery nothing but a contradiction a palpable absurdity a manifest impossibility

whatever we cannot explain void of mysteries make no sense science religion dogmas principles incredible wonders confound reason a second nature a hidden being void of reason understanding nothing

power to please the imagination property of all chaos we do prefer the unknown the fabulous the incredible what a terrible lie how about the simple and clear

whatever we cannot explain void of mysteries make no sense science religion dogmas principles incredible wonders confound reason a second nature a hidden being void of reason understanding nothing

for so many ages holding up to the terror of mortals the invention of god a friend of order permitting disorder
we can’t say a single word without falling into chaos
the greatest confusion extreme situations system failure understanding nothing a second nature a world of dreams

science religion dogmas principles power chaos confusion

Track Name: Brave New World feat. Torsykes
[ brave new world ]

brave new world has come to serve as the false symbol for any regime of universal happiness brave new world, there is no depth of feeling no ferment of ideas, and no artistic creativity individuality is suppressed intellectual excitement and discovery have been abolished its inhabitants are laboratory-grown clones bottled and standardised from the hatchery they are conditioned and indoctrinated, and even brainwashed in their sleep brave new world the twin goals of happiness and stability - both social and personal - are not just prized but effectively equated some drugs dull stupefy and sedate others sharpen animate and intensify the contrast between true and false happiness, however, is itself problematic even if the notion is both intelligible and potentially referential it's not clear that natural, selfish-dna-sculpted minds offer a more authentic consciousness than precision-engineered gradients of information-sensitive euphoria the utopians are never educated to prize thinking for them selves the utopia conceived on the basis of species-self-interest masquerading as a universal paradise brave new world then is centred around control and manipulation brave new world is a stupid society.
Track Name: Antisocial
[ antisocial ]

alone is madness no surprise empty room fear inside
you cant ride your face in this empty space there’s nothing there
you are scared this is your dark side like a deep ocean you hiding
behind your tired eyes this empty place where you hide your secrets
no sparkles in your eyes the world drags you down you know sometimes
you take it all too far can you feel the beat can you feel the heat your
time has come the wind will blow your fears away and stop your pain
your belief is an addiction your faith an affliction it’s all in your imagination
it’s your obsession like an ocean of tears a plastic mind a heart of glass
you wave and you dive you close your eyes but you can’t sleep another
sign for you can you forgive yourself
Track Name: Unilateral feat. N3VOA
[ unilateral ]

at lands edge the possibility of regret turn the ship around back to where we once met it's never only black and white all these blurry shades of grey
I promised to put up a fight but I can't make you want to stay I want you to stay you press your fingers upon the crest divides your face from east to west the subtle lines i've always cherished heavy is the heart against my chest
Track Name: Enlightenment
[ enlightenment ]

nothing is more uncommon than common sense criticism & judgement enough to destroy the most simple truth wrong suppositions created by ignorance propagated by intolerance reduced to a system invisible invincible decisive dogmatic vanity ambition turn of mind disturbed society extravagances senseless visionaries empty speculations
forge of empires worshippers that serve to god’s taste pleased with carnage a furious nation perpetually at war adore cruelty carnivorous selfish blood thirsty gloomy ideas evils of life human mind tormented by ghosts perpetuating ignorance primitive stupidity child without experience stuck in the labyrinth inexplicable enigmas of the universe wicked no self-sufficient
truth is simple error is complex ambiguous & ignorant
conspiracy to prevent enlightenment
Track Name: Dystopia
[ dystopia ]

Track Name: Amorphous
[ amorphous ]

The Amorphous is a very unusual being, if you can even call it that. As the name implies, it is shapeless, its form appearing to constantly changing. It is also void of colours and for the most part; the human brain cannot process this properly, and therefore fills in the space with darkness, much like the way the brain sees a black hole or space itself. Sometimes, when it truly wills itself to, an amorphous can change into any shape it so desires, sometimes able even to change a few colours. It can be for a brief or long period of time, depending on how intricate the form. It takes energy in order for an amorphous to shape-shift. An amorphous cannot be born. It cannot be created. It cannot be destroyed. Only moved. It simply was, is, and will be. Forever! Throughout history, the amorphous has had many names: angels, demon, ghosts, spirits, and more recently, a shade. An amorphous can be either good or bad. Like humans, some have more morals than others. But in our dimension, good and bad are simple names we use to label things that help or harm us. In most alternate dimensions, no such ideas exist. Amorphous tend to be incredibly powerful as well. Not only can they cross dimensions, but they have the capability to create dimensions as well. This leads some to believe that in the beginning an amorphous created our own dimension - our own universe. It is unclear what its intent was, whether this entity created us on purpose or not, whether he has a plan for us, or even cares. It is also uncertain whether or not it could have been done by a single being or many. Not to mention how wise they are. Because they have always been, because they have always traveled, they have infinite knowledge about the world, our universe and other dimensions as well. Some people seek to gain some of their knowledge by summoning them and trying to get information out of them, but all end in failure. I am sure you have made a few connections; most likely you yourself may have had an experience with an amorphous at one time or another. You are probably close to one right now. We are nice little playthings for some of them to watch stumble about. And they do not fully understand dying - not being able to die themselves - so they enjoy watching us when we do. It interest them to see us cease to move. It is certain humans they find the most entertaining are the ones who feel the most fear. It is also almost impossible for an amorphous to feel fear - nothing threatens them. Although they are all-knowing, they can never understand first-hand what fear feels like or what death is like. This plagues them. So many of them watch us, and wait to watch us die, hoping to learn something. A few grow very, very eager. They tend to speed up the process. Those moving shadows you see at night in the dark corners of your room may not be your mind playing tricks. It could be, possibly is, the writhing mass of an amorphous. Watching you. Trying to frighten you, and growing very, very impatient.

Track Name: Stimulus
[ stimulus ]

stimulus sensitivity sensory receptor systematic responses absolute threshold nervous system disorder reaction blood pressure pain and pleasure noninvasive stimulation
economic system loyal consumers harmless tasteless mass production social media artificial intervention living in a bubble society disappoint spamming each other masquerading this insight
we want to be sedated painful not to pretend living in the bubble may I justify myself when you play god without asking my permission
Track Name: Secret Society
[ secret society ]

family tree secret society superstition public life state power to conspire to control without domination world affairs master mind new world order conspiracy theories
lurking in the shadows pulling the strings levers of power ritual drama conceal existence secret knowledge hidden truths unique state of mind a world of anonymous dehumanised people
dominated by a master mind the use of technology is far from innocent rigorous conditioning controls society solidify and justify the unequal distribution of power and status
