Sonny92 A wonderfully melancholic doom record, reminiscent of Warning, especially on the first track. The second track is a little more upbeat, but still has that melancholic edge of all great true doom releases. Favorite track: On the Arrival of Man.

Amanda Capps An absolute jem of a release, the guitar sound in places reminds me of the first 40watt Sun album and the vocals are unique in sound, desolate and full of despair, a totally essential release¬!!!! Favorite track: On the Arrival of Man.

Track Name: On the Arrival of Man
Bipedal primates emerge, migrate and spread
Sapient and searching, sun light rays shed
They turn their eyes and stare at the sun
They breathe in the light, their time has begun

How manifold it is, what you have made
(They are hidden from the face of man)
Oh, solar god, like whom there is no other
You did create the world according to your desire

On Playa Nabta a cromlech under desert skies
Indus valley dwellers paint a six armed device
Atop the great Ziggurat a Loud Robed Priest
At dawn on ghats of Ganges man is facing east
Halo crown disc Having bead of rays
The Lord of every land, the Lord of the (day)
Track Name: The Perfection of Wisdom
The Form Does not Differ From the Void
The Void Does Not Differ From Form
There is No realm of Consciousness
Form is Void and Void is Form

There is No ignorance
No Ending of Ignorance
There is No Old Age
And There is No Death
No Ending of Old Age and Death

There is No Truth of Suffering
Of the Cause of Suffering
Of the Cessation of Suffering

There is No Wisdom
and There is No Attainment
There is Nothing to Be Attained
