Fedor Kovalevsky comments about the album:

"Art is to console those who are broken by life. I didn't say that. Van Gogh did.

This album is a fragment of my soul I brought back from the Black Marsh. Knowing that you're listening to it makes me feel alive. Thanks."

Track Name: Ethereal Travel
I have danced with the void
I have lain with the darkness
I have nothing else to avoid
I have everything in access

As I’ve eaten all stars
I’ve embodied the sacred rune shape
I have cleanse all the scars
And I’m ready to finally escape

Entering the portal for the ethereal travel and run and never come back again until I eat the soul harvester’s heart

There’s something strange about this portal
I cannot sense any evil form
As I’ve lain with the darkness
My soul is getting consumed by its virtue

Here it is again
Drifting into the soil
Forming up the drain
Bringing back the spoil
Embracing again the darkness
Murdering again the harmless
Kissing again the adulteress
Loving again the false abbess

Death, Loss and utmost deception

I’m slowly becoming an ocean of tears
Black is the color of my soul as it fight all my fears
Inside the portal the journey took all my years
As I grew stronger the travel brought me all my fears

I’ve danced with the void...
I’ve lain with the darkness...
Track Name: Seeded Alteration of Consciousness
I see the fragment of soul afraid of the darkness


As I watch the struggle I plant all my seeds
Flaying the mind to recover the complete form
You have to kill yourself to be reborn once again
By embracing the darkness (to receive the divine gift)

Embrace the darkness
Know yourself and all your flaws
Feel the pain when it's here
Accept your shadow before all lights
Become the danger of yourself
Become the power of all your weaknesses
Become the Life of all your tragedies
Become the owner of the Black Marsh
Become the eater of all the torments
Become the fear of all your tears
Become the silent dragon to be untouched
Become the danger of the wilderness
Track Name: Mysticism, Thaumaturgy and Ephemeris
One event. And if you’re gifted you won’t forget how the moon betrayed you. You will open your eyes in darkness, in a black day. You will see that everything you believed to love is gone by death then lies, then betrayal. Ornaments of illusion will follow. You will accomplish a spiritual apocalypse mastering the fact that every life form is alone in its own universe, perceiving truth about connections between primals. There are only profit, no compassion, no empathy; Only to serve a Holy One : The Self.
Primals will keep trading emotions, establishing the new market of false joy, false sorrow. Using tools as primal love, hate and conflicts to build bridges for new connections, mostly carnal connections. Only to serve another Holy One : The Flesh.
In this black day you will feel your inner death. You will be surrounded by new primals for the only purpose to avoid reality. You might live your whole life inside this lie. Comfortable lie. But this black day...when no one will be there for you to shut your eyes from what is really happening in this corrupted world, you will let them wide open, thousands of blood tears will flow to make you rise from your ashes by choosing to avoid all primals leaving your soul to the Black Marsh for eternity and keep your heart true to what you are, avoiding all form of disgusting lies, knowing your purpose of living, if there is any. Avoiding all primals and any form of connection in this grounded life. My purpose of living is to spread darkness until the final triumph.
Track Name: God(s), Love and Life
You consumed every drop of my energy and made me wander in the Black Marsh
I went in its heart, I saw everything I had to see for the future coming
Now, I embrace the stillness of mind which you would never get even at the price of another astral blood
Now, I embrace ethereal peace therefore I forgive and forget you
For you are weakness
As I am power

Since our birth you have blighted us with lies until I have become a universe of lies
Your betrayal was my denial, your weakness was my disbelief
Stars of despair breached my eyes into your black, cursed soul
And then your face has started to be erased from what I built

My lights made me believe in divine love from the sky
To love a deceiving icon by feeding my world and creations which you proudly destroyed
You poisoned my inner self with illusive hope

You consumed every drop of my energy and made me wander in the Black Marsh
I went in its heart, I saw everything I had to see for the future coming
Now, I embrace the stillness of mind which you would never get even at the price of another astral blood
Now, I embrace ethereal peace therefore I forgive and forget you
For you are weakness
As I am power

Your preachers and cultists are vowing upon your lies
Your salvation lies in death, return to your neutral form as a dying sun
Your world was a vile earthly myth, free yourself
Your beauty was and still is a putrid pile of disgusting flesh to be put on fire

You made me dive deeper in your darkness
You made me enter in the realm of death
You made me smell it, It crept into my skin
You killed the boundless faith I had on you
You completely consumed my soul, there was nothing else

You consumed every drop of my energy and made me wander in the Black Marsh
I went in its heart, I saw everything I had to see for the future coming
Now, I embrace the stillness of mind which you would never get even at the price of another astral blood
Now, I embrace ethereal peace therefore I forgive and forget you
For you are weakness
As I am power
Track Name: Another speech for those whose faces are erased
You are the cheater so don't victimize
You're the deceiver so don't victimize
You murdered our sacred symbole of truth
Investing on me all your cursed lies to soothe

From my garden I gave you all flower
You abused of my energy every single hour
Yet I brought and will keep bring power
For the cost of my looks, which are now deeply sour

'United we stand, divided we fall'
These are your own words when you flayed my mind,
And when misery came you left us behind
'United we stand, divided we fall'
All your promises are now disgraced
And yet you accused me that you are defaced

Summoning the knowledge of pain for tomorrow
Embracing the darkness to fight all your sorrow
The black marsh is getting weak against my own dimness
The void I feel as you show me your grimness

Look at me with your deceiving eyes
As I curse your wicked desire until it dies
As I erase your face to reach the skies
Have to see the virtue that arises

'United we stand, divided we fall'
These are your own words when you flayed my mind,
And when misery came you left us behind
'United we stand, divided we fall'
All your promises are now disgraced
And yet you accused me that you are defaced

Track Name: I am The Black Ocean
Blind fight against all terror from all nightmares
Ignoring the suffering and working on false perseverance
Cumulating all frustration in and out by inspiring corruption
The first act has passed, It is the fall

I am the Black Ocean
My hands are full of dirt as my essence is defiled
I am the Black Ocean
My chant is doom as my wisdom is concealed

Absolute rejection during the fall
The second act has passed, embracing the darkness

Inside the dark, the evil manifest hell
Desolation as the apocalyptic sorrow takes shape
Nothingness, the emotional void is born anew
The third act has passed, it is the awakening of the divine

I am the Black Ocean
My hands are full of dirt as my essence is defiled
I am the Black Ocean
My chant is doom as my wisdom is concealed

I will whisper to your soul the blackest torment from my essence to transcend the emotion

You have to dive deeper in the abyss
There is a rapture in the darkness
There is a caress from its vastness
A vertiginous fall from heaven to hell
An ethereal travel to the Black Marsh
From the Black Marsh to absorb its power
To become your own god, and decide your avatar

I am the Black Ocean
My hands are full of dirt as my essence is defiled
I am the Black Ocean
My chant is doom as my wisdom is concealed

I am the Black Ocean
I embraced the darkness to reach the sacred light
