(Earth Mesmerism provides three tracks of raw, goth, black metal, and post-punk inspired electronic music FFO Burzum, Angelo Badalamenti, and Death in June.)


"Cohesive but raw; thoughtful but primal. Sacramance avoids the trappings of becoming either bestial fuckery or trendy fraud by invoking six tracks of blackened magick that channel dread, nihilism, and meaninglessness."
-Anthems of the Undesirable Label/Distro

"Sacramence’s side opens the blast furnace doors wide open with the unbearable noise of hellish heat. That’s all I can say, really. It’s wonderful in its burn-to-cleanse style, and sets the tone marvelously for the rest of the split. Sacramence flits between noise and crust/black metal, all of it punishing, all of it intensely satisfying."

"Sacramence delivers aggressive and dark black metal, not far from the ground tread by bands like Akitsa, Bone Awl, Raspberry Bulbs. Primal but well balanced work, highly recommended!"
-Lighten Up Sounds

Track Name: Earth Mesmerism - Our Hearts' Flowers
The heart rises to face the moon
The road is a single liar's tear
To be everything and to be nothing
Clutching the flame with both hands

The heart (swells and) bursts as rotten fruit.
Track Name: Earth Mesmerism - Violet Night
Track Name: everswallower
through him
dogs lie
a feeling of an instant's abandon
he dies everyday for nothing
Track Name: Idolation
as he hangs
the world celebrates
knowing so little of pain

the pool of reverence
inside the walls of desecration
blood spills for peace
provides for the wicked

kneeling prayer

we fear what we don't know
and kill it once we do
keeping our perception pure

as he hangs
the world celebrates
knowing so little of pain
we kneel and we pray

the altar
of sacrifice
is often
completely empty
Track Name: From Your Lungs
I only see an outline
of the next one to consume me
a reflection of his stare

i sweat in the cold of his silence
head tilts
like a rotting dog

i should have known
i have no place here

his touch keeps me still
my horror for fortitude

taking in
my last everything
Track Name: Shelter
Track Name: Cordon/Isolation
This place is marked by a stench
there is no sleep here
decides their worth

brutality marks our significance
purifying what's around you
work to eat
eating what's taken for you

leave all you have
with someone of no protection
you should have known
one day you'd be swallowed
Track Name: Ya'aburnee
Nothing left to me; my mind erases .
This numbness... Your insides.
Your retreat was the last of Your cull
You can not? (or) You will not?

The coldness seeps through the seams of these rags.
The time I cherished is the time You shame.

I penetrated as you stood on (the) sides.
You watched us; You cried out.
Nothing left to me; my mind erases .
This numbness... Your insides.

Persona, what is this?
Where would You go?
I was waiting sound asleep in this row of "being."
Heaps of rotting seed still wanting to touch Your outsides.

You bury me.
You forget where.
(You) destroy the mark.
Leave me rotting...
Rotting in the ground.
