flightoficarus (Metal Trenches) It's a blistering mess of maniacal, blackened destruction that is clearly not for the faint of heart. The vocals cut in jagged formation like a thousand shards of glass, and the guitars possess the welcoming qualities of a bad acid trip in a torture dungeon. That's not even to mention the insanely sporadic and always impressive drumming.

about

The professor has gathered the performers and articulated their expressions. The unformed and unstable matters have coalesced and stratified. The rhizome is presented as it dissolves.

Dismantling traditional tropes and reassembling them over a warped scaffold of noise and experimentation, death metal mavericks Plague Rider continue to push at the boundaries of their genre with Rhizome.

Relentless sinewy riffs interlace with frenetic drum work, whilst layers of noise and varied inhuman vocal delivery merge into a barely contained whole. A challenging listen which is as vicious as it is expansive, Rhizome represents the shifting neural network of a continuously evolving sonic entity.

Panic is creation.

Track Name: Challenger's Lecture
I STAND BEFORE YOU NOW
A PRYING MASS OF ASSEMBLED MINDS
THE AGGREGATE NEURAL NETWORK
THAT PROBES WITH COLLECTIVE PURPOSE
A COLONY OF VORACIOUS EGOS
PRIMED TO RECEIVE MY WORDS

I HAVE MERGED THE DISCIPLINES
AND ARTICULATED THEIR EXPRESSIONS
FOR MY OWN ENDS

THE EARTH
WITHOUT ORGANS
THe PLANE
OF CONSISTENCIES
OF SWARMING INTENSITIES
AND SHIFTING CURRENTS
OF GEOLOGICAL FLOW

I THAT HAVE MADE THE EARTH SCREAM WITH THE PAIN MACHINE
HAVE WITNESSED THE TRAJECTORIES AS THEY MERGE
THE UNFORMED AND UNSTABLE MATTERS
AND MAD TRANSITIONARY PARTICLES
I HAVE UNCOVERED
THE CRUCIAL PHENOMENA
OF CEASELESS CONCRETION AND COMPRESSION
THE ORDERING OF INTENSITIES
THROUGH THE SHIFTING LAYERS OF STRATA

OCCLUSIONS
ACTS
OF CAPTURE
TERRITORIALISED
JUDGEMENTS OF GOD

GOD
god THE LOBSTER
THE DOUBLE PINCER
THE DOUBLE BIND

ENDLESS ARTICULATIONS

FOSSILS OF MEANING
AND PETRIFIED VELOCITIES

THE STRATA

THE STRATA

THE MASK IS UNDONE
DOUBLE FACING
DISARTICULATED
TOWARD THE DRUMGATE
AS I DISSOLVE
INTO THE MECHANOSPHERE
PANIC IS CREATION
PANIC IS CREATION
Track Name: Stagnation Cult
STAGNATED VAPID LITURGIES
INVOKE CLICHED ARCANE TROPES
INNOVATION IS SO COMPLICATED
SO LET’S STICK TO THE CVLT WE KNOW

DONE UP IN DEAD LANGUAGES
AND REVERBERATING IN CAVERNS
INTONE THE TRIED AND TESTED LITANIES
OF OLD SCHOOL VALIDATION
CLUSTERED IN THE SEPULCHERS
OF CURDLED SOCIAL MEDIA MAGICK
ENDLESSLY CATALOGUING THE SACRED NAMES
AND PICKING OVER THEIR REMAINS

MESSAGE BOARD OCCULTISM
SELF CONGRATULATORY MYSTICISM
LETHARGIC PSEUDO-PROFUNDITY

GLEANED FROM SACRED LOW FI DEMOS

WORSHIP THE CULT

VACANT ORATORS CHANT CONTRARIAN INCANTATIONS
WITH ALL THE DREAD BANALITY

ALL THE DREAD BANALITY
OF NIHILISM
Track Name: Toil
THE OPPORTUNITIES ARE ENDLESS
AND THEY CIRCLE MY LEADEN CORPSE LIKE VULTURES
WHILST DOOMSDAY SCENARIOS CARVE HOLES IN MY MIND
LIKE WOODWORM THROUGH ROTTEN TIMBER

IT’S AN ENDLESS STRUGGLE
TO BANISH THAT SOPORIFIC FOG
A CLOYING VISCOUS SHROUD
WRAPPED AROUND DEADENED SYNAPSES

CEASELESS
STRIVING
THE BURDEN OF ENDEAVOR
NEURONS ACHING

SHRIEKING MANDIBLES OF INTERNAL MONOLOGUE SCOUR MY CORTEX
A LANDSCAPE OF POSSIBILITIES POCKMARKED WITH HOLES
SPIRAL CONTENT STRIP-MINES BELCH LETHARGY
I AM HOLLOWED OUT AND DRAINED
EMPTIED OUT INTO THIS ENDEAVOR
I AM HOLLOWED OUT AND DRAINED

THERE ARE NO SOLUTIONS - TOIL
AND YET THE WORK MUST CONTINUE EVEN AS NERVES BURN
BARBED HOOKS OF LETHARGY ANCHORED DEEP
FROM PULLEYS OF SISYPHEAN CYCLES
THE TETHER EVER TIGHTENING
AT THE PROSPECT OF ESCAPE
AND LASHING AT MY MINDS SKIN
AS ACHIEVEMENT ELUDES BY FLAILING GRASP

VICIOUS
CIRCLES
BARBED AND SELF DEFEATING
FUTILE
DEFIANCE

IT WILL
NEVER
BE GOOD ENOUGH TO REST
Track Name: Without Organs
BECOMING
IMMANENT
BECOMING


STRETCH INTO MYCELIUM
EXTEND WITHIN, WITHOUT
ABSORBING EXTRUDING DISSOLVING

SYSTEMATICALLY DISMANTLE
COMPONENTS OF SELF
EVAPORATE INTO NEON FOG
DECONSTRUCTED ORGANISM



IMMANENCE IS PARAMOUNT!



MEMBRANES PERMEATED
ASSEMBLAGES FORMED


You never reach the Body without Organs
you cannot reach it
you are forever attaining it
it is a limit

TO RESEMBLE THE NETWORK
TRANSFORMED INTENSITIES
THE MACHINE IS CONSTRUCTED AND MOVES
ORGANS RENDERED CONCEPT
UNFOLDED AND ASSEMBLED
REFOLDED AND REFORMED
MYRIAD POTENTIALS
SIMULTANEOUSLY

A PHENOMENON
OF ACCUMULATION
COAGULATION
SEDIMENTATION





TEAR AWAY
THE CONSCIOUS
FROM THE SUBJECT


STRIP
THE UNCONSCIOUS
FROM THE SIGN
THE PLANE UNFETTERED


THE SORCERER
FORGES
THE PACT


CYCLIC TRANSFER
FEEDBACK LOOP
CURRENTS
AND FLOWS
BECOME THE MULTIPLICITY
THE ANOMALOUS RECAST
TRAJECTORIES SKEWERED
BY LINES OF DESIRE
EXPLODED THOUGHT
THROUGH GRIDS AND AXES
PLATEAUS EMERGE
LINES OF FLIGHT!
