NegativeTyp0 I really don't know how this band have gone under the radar for so long. If you love BM with progressive touches and experimental, dramatic flair, you will enjoy this album.
Like their fellow Swiss, Schammasch, Euclidean incorporate a foreboding, dark atmosphere that leaves you in awe and drags you down to a weirdly serene hell that you just know is going to erupt at some point.
Unsettling, forward-thinking modern extreme metal. Just get it. Favorite track: Numbers Held Sovereignty.

Increatus 06:41
The movements of the stars As well as the order of the firmament Cannot be overseen by the blind strength Of the four Elements The Principle of Harmony is by necessity Beyond the somatic structure of the Cosmos Even though it reveals its perfect framework Only through the regular motions of the skies If there were an ounce of nobility in the Immanence It is nothing but the reflect of a superior work Whose shape is of pure geometrical features And the mover of which is of disembodied substance Space is a numbers construct In which the divine bodies are governed by timeless rules An Orchestra of planets breathing Whose opposite blows, are to fuse in stellar strains Making the glowing borders throb And at the center of the anthracite circle Burns an undying fire Like an igneous gem, round and (forever) blazing Thousands of artisans have wrought the world And everything they have achieved Is eternally bound to the universal law of Arithmos In every part of the Universe The numbers are the key to knowledge And the secret of existence
Superstitio 04:10
Pure and immaculate, the souls emanate From the eighth sphere The one of the fixed stars which move around the Orb, Relentless and in unison: never they deviate Slowly they descend towards the earth To be united with matter Once they reach the soil, they live the painful life of men Chattels of an inner tyrant But if they forget their celestial origin, and submit themselves to flesh Everlastingly, they will stay fastened to their corporeal tomb And seized by sin, like a slave in chains Thousands of times, they will be reborn in their earthly prison Mistreated by the violence of their cravings And condemned to live without salvation Hardly better than living corpses, they will crawl in scorching mud Eaten by their own Demons Until they fall in the abyss of Kthôn Where a sleepless death awaits them But if they succeed in staying straight and full of scorn Towards their spiritual weakness If they conquer lust’s disorders They will return from whence they came And thus, they will dwell ad perpetuum by the side of the Blissful In the steams of the Empyrean Heaven
Obstinatio 06:54
At the very Origin A gleaming light illuminated the Earth God filled his Creation with life With the only command, not to be defied He sent his Prophets to spread his Word But the blindness of men Has provoked the end They drank the red lust-wine Losing their insight for foolishness And so they fell in torment At first The skies blew ice cold gusts of winds Below the white sphere A fiery hail drenched in bile Struck the ground and crushed the fields Fire consumed the air And set the harvests ablaze Then the water turned into blood Before it flooded the Lands And so we beheld the collapse of the old Churches As the Seven Trumpets resounded Locusts and scorpions submerged every town Leaving them dryer than the mountains of Negev Half the mortals expired Beaten by the anger of the Merciless Maggots and slugs, ate up human flesh Leaving it limper than a snake without bones Taken by the fever of a pestilence Half the mortals expired Worms emerged from corpses Before they became ashes themselves The sun disappeared behind a murky haze Never to rise again Thus the fury of the Holy Spirit filled the Creation With death
Religio 06:13
But as the humans failed to recognize The demiurgic powers of Numbers And invocated, instead, a Benevolent Father They punished themselves With the weight of servitude And the burden of obedience They forgot the original union Of their bodies and of their souls With the arithmetic constellation of the World They placed their trust in a Lord Who dwells in Zion Pleased to obey his orders And wretchedly trying to redeem themselves They sank in pitch-black oblivion And hanged the seven sages Mortified their flesh Only to enslave their own urges They were apostles of a serpent Wearing sheep’s masks New Kings have arisen On the Thrones of jasper Then the Gospels spread Together with laws of submission Like a disease for which there is no cure In every part of the Creation God became the Keeper of Knowledge And the Sovereign of Existence
