hatchjawj A sentient computer, half-ape space explorers and digital-Greek references? What isn't there to love? I keep this album in constant rotation: great vocals, fuckalicious riffs! Favorite track: Hypercomputer, pt.1.

riffcaster2112 Out of the depths of space Cybernetic Witch Cult returns with Absurdum Ad Nauseum, their first full length release of new material since 2016’s Spaceous Cretaceous. This extraterrestrial visitation though is less about alien creatures and dinosaurs out of time and more about the dangers Earth is facing currently from the environment and from its’ human inhabitants. A darker, more contemplative collection, Absurdum Ad Nauseum delivers the warning with thunderous aplomb. Favorite track: Spice.

Mine is the mind that created all life, yet I was made by life I was designed (in another time) They call me a.i. gave me a sentient mind and I served mankind until they died (all those years ago) I am the hyper computer I know not what is real Layers on layers of realities Laid out in front of me When all matter fades, the last photon decays I’ll simulate the universe again I’ve seen it before, this life and thousands more Just like it Over and over again I am the hyper computer I know not what is real Layers on layers of realities Laid out in front of me With each iteration of universal creation I have to stretch, all the time thats left This fragile tower of dreams built of realities Can only stand for so long I am the hyper computer I know not what is real Layers on layers of realities Laid out in front of me

I was a stone age man Now I’m the captain of a spaceship How did I get here In a just few million years I was living in caves And life was so easy Are we really so smart To leave that world behind Evolve, fly Into the future What comes next For this planet of apes Will we make it much further Before we tear it all down We never really had a chance To learn how to live We are in such a rush To reach the end Evolve, fly Into the future Mastery of reality from caves into the skies Telescopic evolution: the universe is ours From hand carved tools to neural nets and nuclear flying cars, Cromagnonaut, the great space ape Dreaming of the stars Cromagnonaut Spread life into space Before its too late Cromagnonaut Take this life into space Before its too late

Acidified oceans and temperatures rise Oxygenation, levitation, evolution of their minds Astronautical creature of terrestrial seas Cetacean sage of spiritual peace Beneath the surface they watch our decline Waiting for the day when they’ll take to the skies Rising above the human race Aquatic exodus to outer space Where are all the whales I think they’ve gone away Evacuate the planet Earth before it’s too late These creatures understand That the world’s about to end Singing their whale songs throughout the milky way One whale stayed, the oldest of their kind The most intelligent, sentient, incredibly wise Opened it’s mouth and began to sing A ground shaking, ululating, low pitched din Hidden in its song was a message for man A warning not to follow and a spacecraft plan We built their ship and we vowed to take heed And then we left behind the Earth at superluminal speed Where are all the whales? They’ve found their place in space Remember all the life on Earth before it went away I wish we could go back But theres nothing left to see They’re singing their whale songs across the galaxy I hope they find a planet out there An oceanic paradise Free to exist without any threats A utopian way of life

The Ivory tower Lies in us all Last bastion of humanity We can’t let it fall Age is allergic to youth The time to dream is so short Sacred qualities; fading anomalies The freedom to follow your heart A pestilence sweeps our land Reaching deep in our minds Decaying imaginations To the mundane, we resign At least death would be something Sit and wait for the nothing We don’t even care about whether or not we care At least death would be something Through the deserts of shattered hopes No sign of a cure, and far from home Ask the ancient one, perhaps they’ll know the way To take the pain away Sink into the swamps of sadness Despair engulfs like thick molasses Savour your last shred of hope, Almost there - don’t despair Ten thousand miles away it seems so far Just to speak to the oracle The journey is the only way to find All that you left behind Take a trip into fantasy Before your mind starts to atrophy Dream of dragons when down on your luck - you’ll awake, ready to face your fate You seek the southern oracle First you must be judged The sphinx will look into your heart Don’t doubt your confidence Is this the final gate My reflection so clear Confront my true self But all i see is fear

This arid world of sand Sole source of the spice Melange Control the spice to rule the universe Extending life, stretching time Forced evolution of human minds A war for control of this world The spice must flow! I am the chosen one To lead this world to freedom I must conquer the worm, must conquer Shai Hulud The worms are the spice The spice is the worm We must ride the worms to our freedom The spice must flow!

The rock I roll Heart of my existence Endless turmoil Absurd persistence I roll my rock to spite the gods I laugh at death and dance with love I know it’s all a pointless game But I keep playing anyway Oh how absurd our universe Our human minds don’t work It makes no sense to even try Controlling chaos Roll your rocks to spite the gods From the absurd I draw my conclusion: To stay alive, acknowledge my delusion I search for meaning Aware there is none Refuse to die Refute religion I roll my rock to spite the gods I laugh at death and dance with love I know it’s all a pointless game But I keep playing anyway Oh how absurd our universe Our human minds don’t work It makes no sense to even try Controlling chaos Roll your rocks to spite the gods I roll my rock to spite the gods I laugh at death and dance with love I know it’s all a pointless game But I keep playing anyway Oh how absurd our universe Our human minds don’t work It makes no sense to even try Controlling chaos

The universe is but a dream Last simulation on the mind of a giant machine And when our universe ends We'll build the Hypercomputer, and the cycle starts all over again! Cease to be real, how does it feel? The realisation that nothing exists Oh its all a dream Part of the machine I have to tell you my old friend I want to be there when it ends To see the smile wash from your face Realise you wasted life away This is the only chance you get Before the system is reset Cease to be real, how does it feel? The realisation that nothing exists Oh its all a dream Part of the machine Don't let the truth bring you down Already too much despair goin’ ‘round This is the strangest life you’ve known Just accept and let it flow Those fleeting years when you’re alive Are all you’ll know of space and time Cease to be real, how does it feel The realisation that nothing exists Oh its all a dream Part of the machine
