2nd album of Japanese extreme doom. This release will be the first appearance of their new bass player Ryo Amamiya after the departure of founding member, Nobuyuki Sento.
Following the path of their previous melodic and tranquil slow doom album "dense fog”, they added various experimentations into their song writing - for example, one of the songs is written in "Rondo" format traditionally used on classical composition. These new attempts have made their music become much more dramatic and complex.

Tremendous agony in which we suffer on our transient mortal life; feeling of loss, endless sorrow, sense of emptiness and remorse. This album is dedicated to the voiceless dead who had returned to the tranquil ocean with mortal agony.

Track Name: transience
過ぎ去りし時 失われた声
触れることのできぬ幻影 何処へ
the passing of time, the lost voices,
the intangeble illusions, where do they go?

behold the horizon where the sky meets the earth
beyond the mortal dreams, I wait for your time to come

消え去りし夢 声なき幻
無常の魂 無への帰結
the lost dreams, the voiceless illusions,
the transient souls, the end is nothingness
Track Name: lost
I walk in the shadow,
longing for the light
the air is whispering to me
“leave the dreams of fears behind...”

I stand still under the willow,
waiting for the sunlight
the wind is whispering to me
“leave the trees of tears behind...”

the soul wandering in darkness
searching for the unseen light
guided by scent in darkness
I’m away on a endless journey...

searching for the grey entity
acompanied by white vanity
coldness is your ruthless smile
emptiness is my vain denial
black clouds is covering the red sky
with merciless desire for hatred
the light of hope has fleed from me

the glass turns into sands
spilling from my hands
silence is your fading light
solitary is my unavoidable plight
spirits in the air, hear my cry
my cry for merciful death of...
there’s no hope left for me
