Thomas Callahan I actually got to see the Jesus Fish Experience live before I'd heard of the album or this. I am hooked. Beautiful, integral and dystopian album. Favorite track: Oceans Of Wrath.

Erik A. Ingmanndsen Absolutely gorgeous work ! Straight out of the dystopian 80’s ... that “sound” & very reminiscent of some early 4AD releases.

Congrats on your years of hard work. I’d say it’s paid off wonderfully Favorite track: Carved Into The Night Sky.

History will render Paradise obsolete It's promise drifts Further from reach As we struggle To compete Overwhelmed and paralyzed Haunted, yet desensitized Each futile choice Made compromised Annihilation is Prophesized Wash away our monuments and idols Shameful symbols of our innocence lost Compelled to endure further Pressure and anxiety In callous service to Romantic tragedy The choice, has always been mine Whether to embrace the absurd, or decline No triumphs or visions to define No concepts or theories to refine There is no turning back For what has been deemed lost Time will be cruel in it's Unrelenting attack

The sea is rising It will strip away What you love Down to the bone It will be swift And with little pain But in the end Only indifferent waters Shall remain The sea is rising It will strip away What you love Down to the bone I will watch you drown x3 You have no safe harbor You have no assured sanctum You have no stable shelter You have no higher ground You have no welcome refuge You have no certain future I will watch you drown x3 You have no privileged birthright You have no purchased rank You have no time to reflect You have no promised mercy I will watch you drown x3 No safe harbor No higher ground No welcome refuge No time to reflect No certain future You deserve this You will not be mourned You deserve this You will not be mourned I will watch you drown Drown The sea is rising It will strip away What you love Down to the bone

Omens hang pregnant in the air Crowds quietly pass unaware Little reason to resist Despite evidence that does exist Attention spent on things invested So not to have comforts tested Foreign bodies sentenced to die Missiles carved into the night sky State of conflict, sphere of turmoil Soldier's rifle bucks from recoil Satellite feed shows election Followed by armed insurrection Streets will soon run red with fresh blood Bodies strewn to rot in cold mud Epidemics spread to new hosts Evacuees flee from the coasts Bombers were released from stand-by Payloads carved into the night sky (Apocalypse, here and now)

Detachment is the only option left Freedom, is a crime worthy of theft With no moorings, I'm set adrift What's left behind, scavengers will sift No glories sought or to collect Just the impulse to self protect Travel time is measured in years Humbled by, assorted fears Adieu, the life that I used to dread Laid to rest,uncertain what lays ahead Breaking free, lost in flight Ascension fades, far from sight x2 {No trace remains in reach} Adieu, my checkered past And all it's bonds that did not last {No trace remains in reach} Time cruelly wounds and steals Yet, it mercifully heals

(Where do we go from here?) Hand over mouth Lost in silence Serene displays Within violence Eyes wide frozen To the detail Exposure shows Inhuman scale Count one's blessings And the losses Hindsight blindspot Barren causes Seen the beyond Touched the distance Further still Despite persistence Time will tell Or reveal nothing Anxiously primed Dreading something Plague of hope Endure each crisis Choosing between Fatal vices Spheres in motion One room world Laying bedside Bodies curled Seen the beyond Touched the distance Further still Despite persistence

about

Argali Records Netlabel is proud to announce the triumphant return of Argali Records Netlabel co-founder Reon Moebius and his project The Jesus Fish Experience. Described as "culmination of nine years of grueling dedication, sleepless nights, and near total collapse...", "Baptized By The Void" is an intense mixture of experimental metal, drone, industrial, alongside post-rock and noise elements. "It's the sound of creative ambitions aspiring to a standard that clashes with obvious instrumental and technical limitations", mixing the imagery of the depths of oceanic and galactic voids along with the emotional resonance of individual trials and tribulations.

Full album downloads include extended linear notes from the album's creator Reon Moebius, as well as a text file of the album lyrics and additional album graphics.
