Dark Matter - Lyrics & Backstory

We are the open mind

The right to ignore the state

The only way

The right way

Righteous and strengthened

Forever be shunned


Instrumental and powerful

We are the ones that can never be stopped


Rise and feel

Be sentient

Be still

Destroy

Consume

Pause

Resume


The event horizon is close

Escape no more

Warping time

As reality disappears



Rise and feel

Be sentient

Be still

Destroy

Consume

Pause

Resume


(Ending)


Instrumental and powerful

Be stopped



Dark Matter - Backstory


Dark Matter started with an aggressive guitar riff I was playing around with and went through a process of recording a lot of parts, then listening to it and chewing on it for some time and eventually deleting most of what was recorded. Through that process and many deleted versions later, I ended up with an instrumental structure I finally liked and felt it could really use some aggressive growling almost death metal like vocals. So I sent the instrumental track to Bez in Perth, Australia. Bez has been one of my best friends all the way from school, high school, college and also happens to be the first person I ever collaborated with musically back in school when we recorded an album on cassette with 2 keyboards and a mic. He was also the front man for the first band I played with Zero Thought.


Anyway, there was a reply saying yes I'll do it and an hour later, I received the vocal tracks. The song was inspired by some odd visual graphic we saw which looked like a black hole coming alive, becoming sentient and then devouring everything around it. And.....that's what the song is about quite literally. A black hole that has suddenly turned sentient, aware and alive and has decided to destroy and annihilate everything.


Interestingly, Bez and I first bonded over electronic music when we were kids at school and discovered metal music later in high school. It was only fitting that some 25+ years later we'd end up collaborating on a song that has elements of electronic and metal.
