Joel I feel like although it doesn't quite hit the memorable high notes of their debut album, it's a much more refined and consistent an experience. Almost immediately it grabs you, pulls you under, and won't let go. Favorite track: This Body Will Be Ash.

Tym(E))) (((M)achine Life is farce.
A finite loop of moments made up of states of sleep and sleeplessness.
We are born,
We live,
We die.
Hope Drone deftly craft music perfect for the moments.
I present to you:
Void Lustre.
Now buy the fucking thing already!

Charles Randall Cloak of Ash is one of my favorite albums of all time. What I've heard of Void Lustre so far fills me with absolute certainty that this will be a worthy followup.

1.
There is no tide, but time No thread that binds Adrift; suffering unto death Each breath expelled in vain Dragging our limbs in the half light wounds wide open to the truth of it all being into nothingness and endless silence smoke hangs in the air and the horizon is marked by fires the ash of meaning grows thick in our lungs without reason how can we sustain? all truths revealed in the circling of the earth in our absence if we cannot carry ourselves then all is lost all is lost all truths revealed in the circling of the earth in our absence existence is only what appears nothingness lies behind all things
2.
Given at dawn Light, breath, hope Taken at dusk The sum of everything Now returned to nothing before the tide All that is and all that will come to be finds its end in dust and ash To ash No hope within, no breath without on paths forged by the tide we are carried in channels forged by the tide alone into endless night
3.
In endless night we awaken Breath from dust Born from this nothing Sustained in suffering No wells to fill No fields to sow A march towards endless silence In ash and ruins In floods and depths We awaken And from the ruins as blackened silhouettes we drag ourselves into being Nothingness haunts being When the only truth is being into nothingness We carve our bodies from the ash Witness to the heart of all things We are nought but what we will ourselves to be And in nights desolate, I have found the will to be And all that I am, reduced to this A reflection in your eyes When the only truth is being into nothingness We carve our bodies from the ash When the only truth is being into nothingness We are nought but what we will ourselves to be We forge this path, beset by dangers and build a hope from the frailty of this world And all that I am, distilled to this The only truth, the only meaning, is you
4.
This body will be ash and every word it spoke into the void and nothing All things resolved In the quiet But for this impermanence, there would be no meaning and I will hold every breath in the palm of my hands, And will it back into your lungs That your essence would sustain This body will be ash And every fickle quarrel The essence of all things Reflected in its opposite But for this impermanence, there would be no meaning Born of all that's come to pass And all that is written Every burden carried forth Each moment only so precious as it is brief In pain lies the heart of all things Born of all that's comes to pass This fleeting moment is everything In pain lies the heart of all things In loss, and absence, and transience, We find ourselves In pain lies the heart of all things But for this impermanence, there would be no meaning Born of all that's come to pass
5.
And as with your eyes the light left the world Insides turned to ash Past and future to dust No breathe within No hope without Given to all that comes to pass The past is lost Dead inside, we yearn for dawn The past, once eternal Now fluid in the wake of this pain And as with our hope The memories turned to ash Our emptiness reflected in the black No breathe within No hope without The past is lost Never again will we find comfort in silence When stillness speaks of absence; lifelessness Days pass in shifting light on your face Dead inside, we yearn for dawn Wake from death, return to life
