About this album:

Canadian independent "Cinematical" Metal band Alpthraum return with a new epic and powerful sounding album!

The album, which took almost a year to complete, is finally available in digital format. There was lot of effort put in "building" this auditive machine.

"Chronophage" is an eleven track album featuring carefully orchestrated metal songs inspired by the concept of time, time loops, reality, destiny, the circle of existence and mathematical constants.

Most of the songs have a background described in their respective pages.

Artwork is included. (two panel insert and tray card)

Track Name: Edax Omnium
------------------------------------------------------
Lyrics:

Defiance of your dreams
Alliace to your fears
The hours counting tears
It bites your reality

Our lives are out of time
What lies behind time?

Eating fate, does not wait
Liberate the Chronophage!

------------------------------------------------------
Track Name: Event Reborn
------------------------------------------------------
Lyrics:

The needles ticking, to set chaos set the clock forward...

Inside a clockwork, a system of life
Inside an endless loop: to the past from after life.
Repeating the cycle again and again,
incessant deja vu's slowly swallowing the brain!

Forward... Forward...

Replayer of life in a fourth dimension
Everytime I die I go back in time.
Fooling death, fooling illusions.
Forwarding life to live in the past?
Does not cease...

Needles turning...
... now back.

Again, replay chaos!

Piercing the system, replaying the system
Fooling the system, I'm so tired to go back.

Piercing the system, a dimension
Replaying the system of life
Fooling death, fooling illusions.
Not again, I'm tired to go back!

Track Name: Within The Walls
------------------------------------------------------
Lyrics:


Defied by succesion of life,
forgotten their moments behind.
You're here now and they are the past,
the old voices stuck with the walls.

Frequencies past
Silent sounds don't lie.
What once was alive, is now inside.

Frequencies last,
voices inside.
What once was, is now alive.

Mad clocks, damn lie in my mind.
Stop talking about wasting your time.
Stop the clock, listen the moments past.
And measure life by every moment alive.

See the mechanism in which you live.
See whitin the wals what we are. Just see.

You're here and they are the past.
The old voices stuck between the walls.

------------------------------------------------------
Track Name: Circles
------------------------------------------------------
Lyrics:


Now I, with a sight, beginning to divide.
Always the lines entwined, endlessly decimal.
Suspended and in the smallest line.
Unseen to vision till the sun collides,
to conceal perpetual signs.

So everyday, anywhere, void I recognize, circles I divide.

The beginning is always the end,
a constant with improbable end.

Hidding the deepest secrets,
The pattern is everywhere (as you hear it)

Circles!

"When I was a little kid my mother told me not to stare into the sun. So once when I was six, I did."

Circles!

Now I, with a sight, beginning to divide.
Always the lines entwined, endlessly decimal.

Track Name: Spirals
------------------------------------------------------
Lyrics:


In between, it all flies in our minds.
We live in, we live out of our sights
Clocks advance in a motionless life as you listen.

Deep instil, we don't live we survive.
Deep within we don't exist we just die.
And forever closing the eyes to find
nothing inside existence.

As we speak, death... death evolves!
As you dream, it... it devours light!

Like a spiral with no end point.
Like a spiral with no end point.

The ticks you listen devour.

Measuring life, measuring death, measuring what's left.

Don't ask where are you,
just ask when are you.

------------------------------------------------------
Track Name: Nøthing
------------------------------------------------------
Lyrics:


There are big amounts of nothing,
everything's void, no matter at all.
Those dreams are just floating
in an emptiness inside your mind.

There is nothing...

What you feel isn't real,
think or deny every dream,
we're empty boxes that feel,
everything is nothing you percieve.

When everything collapses,
between the spheres void is found,
when everything collapses,
nothing can be found.

There's nothing...
Nothing at all...

Track Name: Frames Delayed
------------------------------------------------------
Lyrics:


As the traject's clear, defying immortality.
Stop future unclear and go back and hear the irregularity.

To create and destroy, to destroy the signs of young,
born creating burns and infinity corroding clocks.

I'm blind but I see it inside me.
I'm anosmic but I feel its scent.
I'm deaf but can hear its echo.
I'm voiceless but can scream its name.

As the traject's clear, defying immortality.
Stop future unclear and go back and hear the irregularity.
And fall into mystery!

Frames delayed,
frames inane,
frames will end to be nonexistent.

(Since we were born, till we'll be gone)

To create and destroy, to destroy the signs of young,
born creating burns and infinity corroding clocks.

Track Name: Box of Illusions
------------------------------------------------------
Lyrics:


Don't you know what hides, that box of the mind?
Few know what's inside, fear seems the reason of all.

Live by wondering everytime,
what is hiding inside?
Secrets of the dry eyed?
Life is made to dream and die.

Don't you know what hides, that box of the mind?
Not anymore.
Few know what's inside, fear seems the reason of all.
Not anymore!
And the dreams are still on and on!

Open the box, let it all go,
remove the locks, to see what we all avoid!

I hide my nightmares in it!

Open the box to unhide,
future, present and past life.
A box full of dark nights.
A box full of parasites!

------------------------------------------------------
Track Name: House of The Endless Old
------------------------------------------------------
Lyrics:


So, it makes me wonder:
Has no one seen the sunlight?
What's behind the courtains?
Same motions every day and night?

Inside everything repeats again.
Everyday a lady lights the same flame.
What's inside the house of old?
Turn the light on and open the door...

Life inside lies in in a loop event.
Time inside, repeats itself, again...

All life inside ages till death,
and everything repeats itself.

Now I'm trapped in the cycle like them,
what I did yesterday I'll do it today.
Inside everything seems the same.
In the house of the cycle without end.
