about

HELGAMITE Rileyville, Virginia

HELGAMITE is an unearthly giant.
The head of Helgamite stretches out of the earth’s atmosphere and high into the cosmos, looming in space where the sound of heavenly bodies becomes transmuted into spacious ambience, buzzing, humming and planetary heaviness.

Dark psychedelic Appalachian stoner doom

Track Name: Æstrosion
ÆSTROSION

BORN INTO INNOCENCE
A SPIRAL AND A CONNECTION
IT BENDS EARTH'S SELFISH CHILDREN
TO ALL THEIR MISCONCEPTIONS
INHERITED
THIS BODY OF FLESH AND BLOOD
RETURNING TO THE DUST
THE DIRT WE ALL COME FROM

SEA AND SUN ERODE
ILLUSIONS OF CONTROL
THE SKYLINE IS FULL BLOWN
THE UNIVERSE UNFOLDS

AN THERE'S ANOTHER LIFE
I KEEP TELLING MYSELF
UNTIL THE PIGS ARRIVE
WITH DOOM INFLICTING SHELLS SUFFER WITH ME
TRYING TO COMPREHEND
OF HOW NAÏVE WE'VE BEEN PUTTING OUR FAITH IN MAN

FALLING SHADOWS
CAST ON ME BY GHOSTS
A GRAVE WILL NEVER HOLD
ASCENSION OF MY SOUL
Track Name: Portal
PORTAL

OUT OF BALANCE
UNDERGROUND
UNDERNEATH-NOTHING
NO SOUND
IT'S ALL DEAD TO ME
I CLOSE MY EYES
BUT I CAN STILL HEAR
THE SCREAMS AND THE CRIES

THIEVES DELIVERED
SO PREPARE
WHICH I FEEL NOTHING
NO ONE'S IN HERE

HONOR SILENCE
IT'S SO PROFOUND
STILL BENEATH IN NOTHING BUT SOUND
A FALSE DESTINY

ALLOWING LIFE
UNTRUTHS I'VE SEEN
THEY'VE STRICKEN ME BLIND
I'M IN DOUBT HOW
TO REINVENT LIFE
SACRIFICIAL SACRED COW
ARTIFICIAL INSIGHT
WITHIN MY VIOLENCE
I'VE PREPARED
TO WELCOME SOLACE
MY SOUL HAS BEEN BARED
Track Name: Snowdrifter
SNOWDRIFTER

OUT IN THE COLD EARTH
WANDERING
SEARCHING FOR WARMTH IN THE HEART
OF MAN'S DARKEST SECRETS

THE PATH HAS BEEN COVERED
BY THE WIND
IT LEADS TO A HOLE IN THE GROUND
NEVER DREAMING OF FALLING IN

I'VE CROSSED OVER

AND I HAVE PURITY
ON MY TOUNGUE
ITS BITTER AT FIRST
BUT THE BURN NEVER SEEMS
TO LAST THAT LONG

NEVER FALLING FOR THE DECIET
I DISAPPEAR
FADING AWAY FROM THE STENCH
OF A CULTURE WREAKING
OF FEAR

I CROSS OVER
Track Name: Origins
ORIGINS

IN THE DNA OF GODLIKE
MASTER THE POWER
RECONNECT THE PAST
ORIGINS
TRY TO FIND MY ORIGINS

WORN OUT RELIGIONS
STRIP AWAY ALL MY BELIEFS

SO FULL OF SECRETS
UNDERSTAND MY OBSESSION
I WANT TO KNOW
WHAT FOR THIS FLESH IS

SHAPED BY THE SEA
DECLINGING SPECIES

TO OBSERVE...
TO LEARN...
TO GROW...
Track Name: Shaman's Veil
SHAMAN'S VEIL

AND HE SAID
SIT AND TALK WITH ME
ON THE BANKS OF
THE RIVER OF LIFE
THE MORTAL CHORD
HAS BECOME A NOOSE
AND FOR THAT
YOUR REWARD DISEASE

CONSCIOUSNESS
LOUD
CONSCIOUSNESS
LOUD

SAVE ME
PROTECT ME
BLEED ME
AT FAULT

WHO BROKE THE SIAMESE SEED
I PONDER THE MYSTERY

A BACKWARDS EMBRACE
YOU HAVE BUT TO ASK
Track Name: The Secret
THE SECRET

WITH YOU...
CONSUMING EVERY PIECE OF MY HEART

WITH JUST A WHISPER
POSSESION COMES
LIKE RIDING TIDAL WAVES
TO WHAT I MUST BECOME
IT KNOWS I'M DISTANT
IT FEELS LIKE I AM NUMB
IT KNOWS I MUST OBTAIN
EVERYTHING THAT I LOVE

MINE ALL MINE
TAKE IT IT'S THERE
TAKE IT IT'S THERE
MINE ALL MINE

MAKING MY THOUGHTS APPEAR
TOUCHING MY DREAMS
UNSEEN INSDIE MY HEAD
AWAKENING IT SEEMS
IT MOVES RIGHT THROUGH ME
IT GUIDES MY HAND
TO LIVE MY HEARTS DESIRE
EVERY MOMENT THAT I CAN

MINE ALL MINE
IT'S ALL MINE

THE FLAW IS UNDERSTANDING
CONSCIOUSNESS AT LAST
IN ALL THAT YOU'VE WANTED
THE UNIVERSE TO ASK
THE SLENDOR AND WONDER
BEHOLDER TO THE AFTERMATH

IN THE END
ALL I'VE COLLECTED
IS NOTHING
NO INTENTIONS
OF FIXING THIS RIFT
BUT IT'S ALRIGHT
