about

"Pangaea" uses a mythological point-of-view to tell the story of a planet at war with its occupants. The tortured main character, Pangaea, is ripped apart into separate continents by Earth so as to prevent the begetting of creatures with potential too powerful to be trusted. Acting out of spite, Pangaea nurtures humanity's rise to power until their passive occupation mutates into indefensible planetary malice. Using wide dynamic shifts and changes in meter, with “Pangaea” ECFERUS creates the musical equivalent of an accelerated planetary evolution, depicting the fury of the elements and an Earth painfully coming to life.

ECFERUS is ALP - all instruments and vocals

Track Name: Creation of a Planet
Once the Earth was young
Birthed three children, Land, Air and Ocean
When Land grew he took the name Pangaea
He was alone
His brother Ocean screamed storms
His sister Air blew fleeting
He created a world to keep him sane
Created plants and trees but they were too quiet
So created animals that ran and hunted

Life was a circle balanced from molten core
A magnetic movement of instinctual momentum
Forests from his mind, species from his mouth
The evolving creature lives by the word of the weather
The separation of space a condition of perception
The speck of this planet in transient vibration
Elaborate mutations in the essence of beast
The imagined projection of survival’s design

The animals do grow and change
A million years become a new

Finally Pangaea is not alone
Track Name: Fragmented Body
The brain is chiseled from stone tools
Hallucinations befell you
On plants of wisdom sacred caverns are reached
I paint what I see with blood of hunted

The angry mother does not trust
The creatures forming, fears what they’ll become
So separates them, the animals
Puts Ocean between them
My body ripped apart into pieces
Separated by miles of vindictive Ocean
Body is fragmented but my creatures thrive
But the creatures do survive
Extend their life force to the mountain’s edge
Harness the quaking Earth into transcendence

The ape became strong of body and mind
I may not be whole but my power resounds
As the ape grew and grew
Became the smartest creature alive
Human ascension

A trilobite on the ocean floor
But my bones are buried never to be found
The thought continues though the flesh is ash
Transient monuments succumb to flood
Stars are falling constellations warn
The seed of Mars is thrust upon the scorched of war
Ceres claims thee, she the rightful owner
Return to soil

No longer in competition
We always win in cunning
Unlimited is our appetite
We will take all you have
One day we will control the waves
Control the sun in the sky
Authorship of time our mission
Behold the human transition
Track Name: Reciprocity of Disrepair
Air made their home cold forced them to leave
Became weak and dwindled, dwindled in numbers
Eventually recovered, made the whole world their home
Became smarter than Pangaea had imagined
Scoured resources and grew

Proud of the world he created
But naïve to the truth
Every ingenious thing celebrated
An equally negative produced
Other animals abided by the laws of Earth
But humans created their own and expected Earth to abide

Crave eternally the face of deity
Adorn the walls illusory security
Progress devoid
Transient monuments will be gone
Desire will fail to provide solace

You are deceived and your mind is beyond repair
Programmed sentience, subservience
Your symbols injected
Your words of obsolescence
Belief proceeds the animus
Suppressed instinct is coiled

Proud of the world he created
But naïve to the truth
Every ingenious thing celebrated
An equally negative produced
Other animals abided by the laws of Earth
But humans created their own and expected Earth to abide
Track Name: Storms Continue On
I of the mountain - wage war
I of the bird’s flight - wage war
I, ruler of trees - wage war
I, suppressor of quake - wage war
I of the sea floor incite the wicked storms - wage war
I, the new world simians avenge the great apes’ scorn - wage war
I of the extinct rise in conquering force - wage war
Storms hide the Earth’s clandestine purge - wage war
The loudest lightning crash ever heard
The perished become food to nourish scorched soil
Blizzards in the night freeze all life to stone

The dawn of man presents at the fateful gates
Asks forgiveness for planetary malice
Earth’s body gave you life
Return to no other when you die
Your mind works like lightning
Your bones are trees adjoined
Eventually you become the technology you formed
I must stop you before it’s too late
And all organic are enslaved

My skies evoke unseen terror
The grounds open their mouths

The prophets in your mind take credit for creation
They will die with your thoughts
My body made your flesh work
No more confusion
In this cataclysmic season of planetary insurrection
Earth shatters illusion
Tellers of the future stare into a moon unchanged
Through a million phases it glares back
And bestows the night upon

My skies evoke unseen terror
The grounds open their mouths
Track Name: Into The Inevitable Night
Creation, destruction, cycle infinite
Planets burst from the howls of space
There is an energy we cannot comprehend
On a distant universal plane
Our laws of matter all we know
A transient fire in the night is gone by day
