Última entrega para esta banda portuguesa Sirius que venían a ofrecer un black sinfónico y melódico con ciertas reminiscencias a Emperor, tal vez la amistad con Samoth o el ser grabado en los mismos estudios que la banda noruega haya tenido algo que ver. Sonido contundente, pomposo y rimbombante sin llegar al exceso, pero conservando un punto de violencia y extremismo que es de agradecer para no caer en un sonido del todo cargado. Se cuelan alguna melodías de guitarra bien ejecutadas que nos habla de una propuesta sinfónica pero no del todo cargada, que deja espacio para que cada instrumento respire y se aprecie como corresponde. Un aspecto a destacar es la temática de los lusos gira en torno a temas que tienen más que ver con el universo y la mística espacial, por lo que las sensaciones son más frías y vacuas que otras bandas también afines a propuestas sinfónicas. Lo cierto es que el álbum es un fiel reflejo de la vertiente más sinfónica del género que campo a sis anchas durante un tiempo dentro de la escena pero que acabo por saturarse, Sirius aportan su grano de arena al conjunto con un resultado más que digno. (7,7).

Nocturnal art

1. Spectral Transition 01:26  instrumental
2. Spiritual Metamorphosis 05:07
 Innate strength
Mind and soul drift away
From a bygone marked in futile artefacts
On an inset path of blinding light...

We set the inheritance of new death.
Outrageously we devour the elements
And drink from the spiral essence

"None are innocent.
There are only those weak enough to believe they are.
And those strong enough to revel in the
Knowledge that they are not."
[...Jacob Strauss, Magus of the Shining Hill, London 1940]

Like black holes of enchantment...
We sombrely glitter yet consume cosmic energy
'Til you experience inorganic distress

Life as you know it has come to an end

Devoid of human flesh and blood,
The Stars are the sparkle of our eyes,
Streams of nothingness our veins, and pain...
The work of our hands.

Defy the limits of perception
Destroy the Earthly.
3. In Astral Plains of Trance 05:19
Regardless your efforts, everything changes Time cycles yet never returns Storms generate aeons while peace brings nothingness War-force conception, the deity of destruction Make humanity share the pain inflicted upon itself Self-deluded dreamers disintegrate, They drown in grimness, and with them, their dreams. My roots may have driven their souls dry But my branches had already touched the stars... Mayhap your sterile mind and body ever get a hold of the truth You depend on us for your existence Time cycles yet never returns... Hither am I In Astral Plains of Trance As untouchable to you as the stars above Attempt against us, and confusion shall take over... Aghast as you taste the claws of our wrath  
4. Abstract Eerie Corridors 04:46
Abstract Nexion Echoes of reminiscence pounding inside Silence is screaming my name Screaming your name Have you ever met your Demon...? 7th Portal Connection Transformation's wormhole unveils an alien maelstrom Beyond reckoning A sun spreading its rays in multiple tones And spectres emerging from chasms of light Overwhelming hydrogenous stellar art Deep black gateways lead to untrodden plains Beyond the furthest nebulae Eerie corridors into immeasurable destinations No regret. No looking back. Never question. For life was but a poetic artifice...
5. Desolate Magnetic Fields 05:35
  Magnetic tide brought the message forth
Proclaimed illusion, I sink in these galaxies

Cold landscape
Circular abstract forms orbiting a virtual collision point
Between inverse polarised entities
A searing dead light, consuming the whole
Crushing every atom of life
Never to be forgotten
This Cold, Cold landscape

Arcane transmissions from a distorted timestream
Strewn stars like magick drops spilled in the Ocean
The mistake was to wish for my eternity
We were the keepers, we arrived along with demise

Hologram-formed cells in eruption
Plasmic obsidian pouring out from limbo

Crushing every atom of life
Never to be forgotten

Infinite Desolation
6. Into Forbidden Dimensions 05:10
 Myriad arcane gateways into forbidden dimensions
Are gaping open before my eyes
From afar, I watch my soul step forth
Into the searing radiance of the mirror's other side

Engulfed in cataclysmic bursts of energy
Ephemeral nightmarish shapes permeate my consciousness
Psionic ripples in the galaxy-crested sidereal waves
Violently stir the stygian bejewelled aether

Enshrouded by billowing tides of skyfire
My spiritual mantle blown by newborn solar winds
I behold new universes in ireful bloom

Once more, as has been for countless times before,
The siren call of creative energy is answered
By the unseen magickal forces
That interweave space and time

Standing and watching, I learn of their ways...

And by touch of their powers, I have seen
Simple drifting grains of cosmic dust become
Titanic effulgent orbs of fathomless majesty,
And still rise to transcend the very boundaries
Of their newfound splendorous existence...

Such magnificent power!
7. Axis 03:51
Where hierarchies were found
We met the structures veiled to life.

All the grief as stone, cold as the night.
Sharpened light, bleeding the sun
In seas revolving inorganic cycles.

Eyes wide open absorb the wave of conception
And the mouth bond to lies replicates
The horror of mankind.

Transition begins.

I drain the abyss.
Forging a dying planet
With the demons in my head.

Travelling in this admirable tunnel
Words pull the trigger in vectors
Constructing reality from a third point of view.

Behold the seeds of the universe.
8. Stellar Transcendence 05:19
Amidst the troubled sleep of a Midwinter night, Whilst unknown horrors plagued my dreams Of dreary temples of old, I beheld a distant wall strewn with arcane glyphs That spoke of a terrible invocation... And walking up, I realised That all factors were now in conjunction The ever so distant time that scribe's dreams has prophesised Was now at hand... What an astounding revelation I have been bestowed! The Horned Moon is standing high above the Earth tonight And rends alight strange silhouettes in the pitch black ground I kneel betwixt fragrant trees and shape-shifting shadows And my mortal senses are permeated for one last time I recite the conjuration of the elder stars The ancient, arcane words sear my writhing tongue Now I feel their power surge all about and throughout me And seep through every pore of my thirsting soul Secrets never known to Man reveal before my eyes I become godlike! And now as my mortal shells is left far below Entwined in all -destroying serpentine horror My immortal soul ascends towards unimaginable power Ever so nigh the brink of mind-devouring madness... I am the Pandimensional Liege-Lord Clad in the very fabric of Space and Time My crown is of galaxies, and galaxies of galaxies Interdimensional existences are mine to create and destroy At a instant's fraction whim Mine is the Maw of Creation that holds tight in its grasp The Tail of chaotic Destruction in a circle that forever lasts The Multiverse is mine to rule!  
9. Paradox Timeline 06:48
  Enhanced frequencies of unknown origin
Billions of effulgent blazing shells
Lurking in the nothingness of the void

We ventured through.
I exploited the Source of Self-Art
Never avoiding the fluorescent photon belt
I reunited the Alignment of ascension

Who besides me, could be
This Soul in transience, asleep in a wreath-like womb
Aesthetically static yet so revolutionary force?

May all life respond!

I remember myself as the progress of creation
Rewrite the principle of genesis as known
Non-substantial matter hits me like wildfire
I feel the surrounding siege of the Multiverse

I became the dagger
The dagger that lead myriad worlds to compulsively bleed
Reality with me fainted... was any of this ever true?
While leaving my consciousness, I forgot what I never new,
I remembered what I never was,
I remembered what never happened...
I finally know what I had always been.
10. Dimensional Quantum 02:58
 Chaos is the longest distance between two points
The further the travel, the blurrier the vision...

We envisioned development as the perfectly drawn line
Grown polarised, in the aim of equilibrium

Structured Genomes - the architecture of oniric DNA
Is but a part of the mingled essence of dimensionism
The principle of uncertainty
- A morphed perception of existence -

Random Vacuum fluctuation
A backsweep from emptiness to oneness
Zero-point energetic transcommunication

We hold the lock of Yin
And the key of Yang
Nothing is everything

- Dimensional Quantum -
Psychic surgery in spectral consciousness
Inter-dimensional particle amidst creations,
Spontaneously combusted into the explosive
Growth of a dying universe...
11. The Majesty of the Nightsky (Emperor cover) 04:22
  Like the tide, shadows flow towards the shore of light
The night comes whirling like a maelstrom
Warring waves of crackling clouds
embrace this nightside landscape
The heavens bleed, through open wounds, the dim light of the moon
The winds are crying mournfully and tears fly with the gusts
They whip my clenched faces freezing skin with ice-cold burning cuts
Too long I have sufferred the desert sands of time But as I drown in darkness it will release the sign My soul will leave this mortal coil of flesh and earthly life
to fly into the mist of night
into the nightside eclipse
and experience existence on the other side
As a stone of scorching enthusiasm
I refract the reflecting surface of this unfathomable sea
Growing circles of grief and pain slides across the land
as an omen of the horror yet to come
The strength of a thousand fire-breathing demons breed in my infernal, sinking soul
And as I reach the surface once again these
powers are under my control
Now I am one with the night sky majesty.
