ANFRACTOUOS MOMENTS FOR REDEMPTION (2017)
Álbum debut para esta banda chilena que podemos pensar que son unos recién llegados, sin embargo el line-up de la banda lleva formando parte de diferentes proyectos de la escena de su país, algunos por un período de casi veinte años. Toda esta experiencia que atesoran a sus espaldas se aprecia en este primer álbum, que si bien ha sido enmarcado dentro de la vertiente del death melódico y del doom, creo que la procedencia de los músicos de Weight of Emptiness de bandas que ham tenido cierta relación en mayor o menor medida con el metal progresivo, es una influencia clara y que acaba por impregnar todas las composiciones. "Anfractuous Moments for Redemption" contiene nueve temas que se despachan en poco más de tres cuartos de hora, fue editado originalmente en Marzo de 2017 pero reeditado otra vez en Cd por el sello mexicano Sun Empire Productions el pasado Marzo de 2018. De los nueve temas que integran esta álbum cuatro ya habían formado parte de su primer Ep "Anfractuous" editado en Octubre de 2016.  "Anfractuous Moments for Redemption" destaca por varios aspecto, uno de ellos sin lugar a dudas es el de producción que permite disfrutar de la complejidad y variedad de los temas, descubriéndonos a una formación madura y muy profesional que sabe lo que se trae entre manos y en donde se ha sabido cuidar todos y cada uno de los detalles. Bien es cierto que por estilo son afines al death melódico, sobre todo por los potentes riffs de guitarras y por el uso de los guturales en las voces que acaban por impregnar su música con cierta melodía. Pero desde luego que sería muy injusto olvidarse de otros apartados de su propuesta y estilo, como puede ser el ritmo pausado y denso la mayoría de las veces, el buen hacer de Alejandro Ruiz a las voces que consigue intercalar también partes limpias en algunos pasajes y por supuesto que una vez que se ha acabado de escuchar este álbum es imposible no dejarse atrapar por otros estilos también presentes, como el rock clásico, el jazz y sobre todo ese ambiente progresivo que sacude su música. Textos elaborados, producción cuidada y sobre todo un trabajo de muchas horas detrás de este álbum, sólo puede suponer que el oyente se siente totalmente recompensado tras su audición (8).

1. Anfractuous (Intro) 01:25   instrumental
2. Behind the Masks 06:42
Everything looked fine
There was an order that seemed natural
But it was only a reflection of an illusory image

Falling like a house of cards in the face of brutal reality not faced
In the midst of despair and fear, I note the darkness where I am

Falling like a house of cards in the face of brutal reality not faced

In the midst of despair and fear, I note the darkness where I am

I see the reflection of my own darkness surrounding me
And that's how I begin to open my eyes and see
In the middle of the shadows thousands masks appear, thousands masks appear 

Costumes from a grotesque celebration of the darkness that cover more and more the truth 
They enjoy the brutality and with a burlesque gaze, laugh mercilessly

Trying to let the fear and disbelief I intend to see beyond, 
Then understand that the maze is more tangled and deep,
Behind the masks there are more.

And in the midst of chaos and confusion 
Paradoxically I begin to understand
It was all a trap
And those voices talking about Paradise
Are part of the hoax


Even those in which you trusted
And where you lean
You understand, 
are part of the hoax

You were just watching the wrong place
"Outside" there is nothing that is not "inside"

Everything is within us
Looking inward, 
light appears.
3. Unbreakable 05:58
This pain corrodes me
The hate cuts the connections with reality
Madness inside this dark cell
I wait for my turn when the next battle begins

The populace has blood lust
My own or my enemy’s
I’ll try to survive
I’m trapped
I don’t want to kill, I don’t want to die

I used to fight for my people through moors and forests, we faced
Against the neighboring towns for supremacy and survival

Darkness fell unexpectedly
Eagle armies swept all our land
Nothing we could do to oppose them
Those who did not die we fell enslaved
By conqueror's power

I have to survive
Wrestling
Using my skills and learning new ones
My soul remains free
My mind begins to fill with thoughts of hatred and death

I pray to my gods
To accept my soul

Today I must to die for fun of the rabble
Tomorrow I will be with my ancestors
My soul will travel free at last
4. The Silence 05:42
 Impossible dream of cities
Autumnal dialogue of the forgotten

The Silence
The Silence

Invisible link of heartbeat
Last song of the dying

It’s in the dark when we invoke your return,
In anger we hide unconsciously your delirium

Rumble's rumble
Shelter of the solitaire
Echo of itself
Mattress against the moonless night

It’s in the dark when we invoke your return,
In anger we hide unconsciously your delirium
It's in the soul where we look for your spell
In the breavement we can hear your deep crepitate

It is in your uterus where is found the way out of the labyrinth and the key to the coffers
It is in your armor where the scream does not stumble

Travelling on tiptoes with the existing without raising suspicion
of power of your hammer, of the value of your voyage

It’s in the dark when we invoke your return,
In anger we hide unconsciously your delirium
It's in the soul where we look for your spell
In the breavement we can hear your deep crepitate

Laughter of our misery
Unquiet god tragedy
The missing piano's tooth bites the wind without air
5. Holy Death 05:21
 Like a black eagle 
You fly over us
You laugh at our insignificant grief
Because before the twilight
We shall be part of your own light
Part of your own light

Gathered we contemplate our decline 
And without words
We praise Dionysius on your behalf

Because we are chaos in ecstasy 
Because there is no balance without death 

A thousand years to carve a throne 
One second of doubt to losing it

Nothing is eternal, neither solitude nor oblivion, neither prayers to God 
And yet this idea remains in our souls 

Fast is your destination and also your decline
A thousand beasts gathered in a pit 
Where you rest in opulence 


Live the holy death 
And live all those you embrace 
You will lead the sound of our end
And open wide you will discover waters of the Styx 

So that we can pass
We celebrate together
And wait for those to come
Those to come
6. Cancer 05:37
  Provided naivety, blind to the truth
Killer science like poison

Annihilating me

Provided naivety, blind to the truth
Killer science like poison
Misunderstood concepts, blinding lights
Nobody knows this hell

Annihilating me

Life in agony
I survive blind wandering
Death and desolation
Disabled, sad, insane
Cancer in my mouth
Exiled, left outside forgotten
Business of bastards
Business of death

Life in agony
I survive blind wandering
Death and desolation
Disabled, sad, insane
Cancer in my mouth
Exiled, left outside forgotten
Business of bastards
Business of death

Pious lie destroying my life
Socially stunted I have no choice
Pious lie destroying my life

I’d like to regurgitate disastrous mixture
Disgusted of swallowing so much shit
Transgenic ambition distorting perfection
Development geniuses
Chemicals full of hate

Simple test objects in complete ignorance
Simple exposed rats to delusions of insane minds

Cancer
7. Weight of Emptiness 05:34
  Lying inside four walls 
Prisoner in my own hopeless shelter

This dark regret falls with that weakness
Bending my neck spreading the sickness
Wherever I escape it reaches me and drops me
falling in disgrace
I’m feeling the burden of life

Weight of emptiness
Breaking the reasons to live
The fight is in vain

Nailed to eternity by the weight of the earth
The delirious streaming of mankind means nothing

Weight of emptiness
Breaking the reasons to live
The fight is in vain

Why
I don't know why
I can't see
I can't read my heart
I'm unable to feel

Some roots under my soul
Are covered with failed 

Memories
I need to get rid of them to lighten the weight of my emptiness
8. Inner Chaos 09:21
  In the humdrum dawn of my life
Bitter wine in the day, old wine in the night
Who gave birth to the chosen one still are with me
The sun blesses me, the moon cradles me

I curse the day my chest tightened, the sand on my watch
My throat didn’t swallow or spit out the balm of my life.
... And transformed the white light in a damned gloom

Believe in, believe in yourself

The lady in black gives no truce
Will come for my soul, I won’t give it a chance

Stable pillars collapsed, No security, no tranquility
The doors have opened, my broken up system
And entered my worst fears without stint like strong wind, my uncertain autumn

Believe in, believe in yourself

The lady in black gives no truce
Will come for my soul, I won’t give it a chance

Death!
Gasp for help, needed the blood even flow
Their scalding rivers of life
Darkness!
The lie which my mind projects in a virtual way
Resigning myself to my fate to surrender my soul to the barge that comes to me

My Inner Chaos…

The doors have opened, my broken up system
And entered my worst fears without stint like strong wind, my uncertain autumn
The lady in black gives no truce
Will come for my soul, I won’t give it a chance

Nothing matters
Thousand lashes with rebirth of the sun, thousand pleasures in the wake of the night
Nothing matters; my senses are still intoxicating with knowledge
My heart beats like summer breeze
I won the battle, but the lady in black knows to wait, all wars belong to her
9. Redemption (Outro) 02:00   instrumental
  47:40
