about

"Phobos Monolith" is an observation on the cold mysteries of space, on the origin of Life and on its ephemeral nature. In the saddle of wild riffs and majestic melodies, MARE COGNITUM travel fast with unbridled rage and melancholic abandon through colorful galaxies and placid sea of stars, to reach the boundaries of the Universe and enter the eternal abysses of Nothingness...
And there they rest, finally at home."

Released via I, Voidhanger Records.

Track Name: Weaving The Thread Of Transcendence
Descend infinite dream
An unconscious revelation
Light and sibilance blend as one
An eternal mind observes its own birth

Piercing to the core
Boring into nether
An endless reversal of bending time
Swirling neurons into infinite worlds

A skyward gaze is met
With a host of peering eyes whose stoic glares bequeath the moon,
Repeating ever softly verses of alchemic truth
All transfigured into eons

Cascade into brilliant shards
Disperse unto the cosmos
Weaving a single thread
And bringing eternal eclipse

Ascend infinite dream
An unconscious revelation
Light and sibilance blend as one
An eternal mind observes its own death

Time stretches the thread of dreams
And echoes forth into renewal
An unwavering litany of tides
Infinitely, Boundlessly

A skyward gaze is met
With a host of peering eyes whose stoic glares bequeath the moon,
Repeating ever softly verses of alchemic truth
All transfigured into eons

Piercing to the core
Boring into nether
Track Name: Entropic Hallucinations
Rise
Bear witness to the astral chaos
Echoing within your once-sacred halls



Heat embracing
Endless horizon
Light, a curse
In ailing landscapes

Not unlike a bleeding wound
A festered scab wrought with disease

Sky agape
Miasmic windows
Whispered though
Obscure dimensions

A landscape withering in the clutch of an arthritic pale grasp

Tremorous hands grasping for
Once-held brilliant suns of endless luster
Now an ailing mass of blight
Repugnant in their hideous forms

Carrying a blinding plague
To unleash upon barren earth
Futility in endless struggle
Driven by unconscious reason

An incredible weight such as this
Is a planet drifting in empty space
Devoid of kindling and ash
The plague is never born

And yet it scours the landscape
With unspoken splendor
Anxious molding of the clay
Into the image of Sisyphus

Heat embracing
Endless horizon
Light, a curse
In ailing landscapes

Not unlike a bleeding wound
A festered scab wrought with disease

Sky agape
Miasmic windows
Whispered though
Obscure dimensions

A landscape withering in the clutch of an arthritic pale grasp
Track Name: Noumenon
A brilliant scarlet dawn has conquered the night
In elegant mystery it swallows the sky

Crudely blemishing the ivory clouds
Encasing daylight in savage grandeur

This aurora fills my lungs and takes me to another time
Into the memory of a dream never dreamed

Senses blurred into a mesh of cacophonic disarray
Free of mind, I am a crashing wave

Into the passing of time I become
The birth of aeons passes through me

Heliotropic manifestations
Omnipresent revelations

All that was and ever will be
Congeals into singularity

Before me the tide rises
Drowning the life unlived
And in one moment
The waves wash into light

At once I return to a place of rest
My flooded memory recoils in awe

It finds deceit in its own perception
An experience lost on human senses

Crumbled remnants of these visions
Pieced together in shameful bewilderment

They remain stained forever grey
A final monument to the failures of man

Into the passing of time I become
The birth of aeons passes through me

Heliotropic manifestations
Omnipresent revelations

All that was and ever will be
Congeals into singularity

I leave them at the shores
And so too my body

Unburdened by the shackles of reality
Immanent within all existences

Reborn into infant suns
And formless planets of endless day

A nameless form hanging between dimensions
A mind needs not hold the words any longer

Before me the tide rises
Drowning the life unlived
And in one moment
The waves wash into light
Track Name: Ephemeral Eternities
Multidimensional storm
Disturbing galactic balance
Primordial coalescence
Fusion of primal essence

Hypnotic dirge molds
Shapeless malformation
Amorphous amalgamation
Tempest of infinite scale

A new dawn forms
Reciprocal beginnings
Necromantic screams
Calamitous rebirth
Multicosmic disarray
Despondent conceptions
Bastard sons begotten of
Malevolent masters

Contorted visages
Twisted and warped
Clinging for shelter
In shallow tombs
Forlorn children
With outstretched hands
Clutch the remains
Of a corroded temple

Fractal galaxies emerge from the void
Glorious spiraling cipher
Kaleidoscopic omnipresence

Forging the sands of time
Into wretched worlds
A glorious futility

Extinction

Stretching beyond all time
Multidimensional genocide

Reflections

Of infinite parallel lives
A hall of blackened mirrors

Begin upheaval
Promise malignant
Vow silence
Breathe visions
Fading suns
Primal moons
Fears breed
Ends eternal

The dawn sleeps
A radiant calm
Serpentine dimensions
Interspersing light

Now draped
In bloodied robes
And surrendering
Their scarred veins

Denied existence
By time’s gaze
Trembling within
The purest darkness

Awaiting exile
To forgotten wastelands
A glorious suffering
A miserable solace

Fractal galaxies emerge from the void
Glorious spiraling cipher
Kaleidoscopic omnipresence

Forging the sands of time
Into wretched worlds
A glorious futility

Extinction

Stretching beyond all time
Multidimensional genocide

Reflections

Of infinite parallel lives
A hall of blackened mirrors

Countless ghostly manifestations crawl beneath the void
Doomed to wander the endless seas of ethereal murk
Ensnared within the incessant cycle of eternal birth
Led deeper by the hollow stream of eternity

This dying soul foretold in ancient prophecy, a ruined monolith to the hopes of nature, collapses under the weight of its own breath, its last gasps blaring into a sickening cry

A senseless loss
