This is a demo of our very first three songs starting out as a band. This documents our early sound and influences from about 3 years ago. The lyrics cover themes of escaping self deprecation and exploring natural conflicting emotions through symbols in physical nature. We hope you guys enjoy!


released January 18, 2016

We would like to send out an ENORMOUS thank you to John Haddad of Trench Studios for recording drums for us.
We'd also like to thank Joseph Gilley for providing us with a gorgeous painting for our demo cover that strongly reflects the themes in our music; Ashley Martinez for photographing Joseph's painting and editing our logo into the cover; and Kala Sneve for tracking vocals on "Where Ice Traps the Sea"
You all mean the world to us and we are so grateful to have you in our lives.

Track Name: Channels
Limitless footsteps to tread untended soil
Mold possible pathways til world's end

All vessels ahead entangle the trail

Spreading the seeds of certainty
They grow beyond surpassing me

Move past
Rushing channels
Carve the path
Flooding all others

And when I've forgotten my instinct to traverse
I'll dig underneath and drown with my failures

Pull me from the path
Track Name: Earthblood
My gateway beyond now grows farther from me
This river of dirt pulls me back
From this pit I was forged within
Raised to fall
My nails too dull to dig

"Further now, slip into filth.
Your hide belongs to the teeth of the rat
Further now, don't look ahead.
Give your sight to vultures"

Rid me of this poisoned blood
It spills, and weakens my will to ascend
Fragments of my past resonate
Thickening the fog in my head.

Haze remained my anchor

Every single grain of dirt
Cut through, replaced every void
And then molded with time
I've become
Obsolete within every form

Pain in time
Dissolves through eyes
With hands untouched
With mind and soul entwined
Track Name: Where Ice Traps the Sea
Mirrored sea
Stare with me
Return this vision
Your gaze breaks me free

I've been drowning
Underneath this frozen sheet

Numbing embrace

I've solidified every hindrance
Blood and sand
Filling my dead quivering lungs.
Center in vacuum

With blistering hands I touch
Cracks in the ceiling

I've become a form of myself
Frozen and void
Tear away my frozen external
My desolate shell

Cold waves
Keep me
I wait
Drown with me
