Mark Lindhout Creepy yet awesome. A sense of blood and moist rot permeates this record. The stifling damp atmosphere is broken through by bouts of aggressive riffing, but the jungle always takes over again.

Immerse yourself into its atmosphere and don’t bother with categorization, because you'll fail. It’s much better than the sum of its parts. Favorite track: Hole in Your Head.

Euterpe Very well written, musical invention, and a lot of energy from this Venezuelian metal band.

Stijn Van Hees A dark sludgy trip, very compelling album by a band that takes a foundation from DOOM but builds their own regonizable sound around it with. An album you'll keep spinning. Favorite track: Rezando al Miedo.

Track Name: La Selva Se Muere
the land
the land of our future
the land of our children
is bleeding to death
la selva se muere

our essence
was raped by religion
your greed, your rotten system
is taking us down
la selva se muere

the ground is flooded with blood

la selva se muere

respira su herida...
Track Name: Es mi Sangre
es mi sangre

the walls won’t talk
my thoughts don’t tell me much
I don’t remember sitting here before
the walls won’t talk
and I don’t hear a sound
a rotten smell is giving me some clues

I’m the end of the bloodline

es mi sangre

yeah I’m the chosen one
I am the truth in every lie
I’m the one who saves
and this is the chair
where I belong

the walls won’t talk
but I can hear you pray
the world looks
quite interesting from here

I’m the end of the bloodline
Track Name: Hole in Your Head
church of money,
priest of business, holy war
divine politics,
global sanctions, media prophecies

I saw through the holes of these hands
now I see through the hole in your head

I see through the hole in your head

faith finances,
holy profit, sacred market
divine debt,
mercy credit, paid salvation
I saw through the holes of these hands
now I see through the hole in your head

I see through the hole in your head

democracia, santidad, propaganda
saint corruption,
free us all from this crisis
‘cause I see through the holes in my hands
now I see through the hole in your head

I see through the hole in your head

and I don’t see much
Track Name: En Esta Tierra
la voz que miente en la piel
me vende una eternidad
la voz que vende el dolor
hoy me habla de salvación y me vende...
el miedo a su dios, el miedo al infierno
pero solo escucho mi voz

en la tierra del miedo

la infancia que reza sus traumas
se ha cansado de sangrar
y en el suelo esta escrito en sangre
“en ésta tierra se acaba el miedo”
porque si no hay dios
tampoco hay infierno!

¿a quién le rezas?
Track Name: 1492
los hijos de ésta guerra
los hijos del dolor
los hijos de éste cáncer
hoy pierden la fe
escucha su voz

se rompen las cadenas
se desangra la invasión

los hijos de tus miedos
hoy pierden la fe
escucha mi voz

más de quinientos años
más de quinientos...
la invasión, se desangra...
Track Name: Rezando al Miedo
Rezando al Miedo
Track Name: La Ley del Dolor
I am the one who knows you
I am the one who says
who’s going down
I’m the one who shows...
la ley del dolor

I am the one you’ve chosen
I am the one who says
who’s coming next
your turn has arrived
it is time to learn...
la ley del dolor

es el mal del bien
el mal de tu ser

el precio de tu paz
es el precio de mi paz
el precio de tu paz
fue mi paz
Track Name: Forget I'm Here
years of walking down this road
 ... I realize
years of learning to believe
and I realize

turn out the lights
forget I'm here

years of learning how to live
and I realize

I die alone

years of waiting for that day
I'll never see
years of waiting for those words
that never came

turn out the lights
forget I'm here
