about

Consisting of a pedigree of extreme musicians, including current and
former members of Necrophagist, Obscura, Spawn of Possession, Aborted, Dark Fortress, God Dethroned, Blotted Science and Noneuclid, ALKALOID set out to push the boundaries of progressive, extreme music on their impressive full-length debut The Malkuth Grimoire.

Entirely self-recorded, self-funded and self-released by the band,
ALKALOID burst onto the metal scene like a supernova. With twelve
tracks of 73 minutes of mind-bending music, ALKALOID seamlessly
ebb and flow through an arrange of styles and genres, creating an
intelligent and fascinating blend of prog, death metal, and fusion.
After just one listen of this masterful debut, it is safe to declare
ALKALOID as the world's premiere progressive metal supergroup.

Track Name: Carbon Phrases
Thoughts are slowly moving on
Unseen where they‘re coming from
In disguise feelings‘ tension moves
- Strings to be pulled by intuition

Changing words takes precious time
Until great sense and suspense fi nd in line
To be perfect
Be the architect
To protect your realm of dreams

I am condemned to see things in youth
Kindness as matter, conceiving the truth
Like a spider in its web I‘m waiting for a muse
A kiss to be abused

So call me, reason, tell me your name!
Set me out of my mind!
Foresee the treason combining each frame
Shaping the perfect design

Find me all season cold in my grave
I am the father of time
Feed the horror that keep my veins alive,
To unwind the perfect line

And once you feed the fire
My will is set ablaze
Strings of thoughts move towards my consciousness
Prosaic cynic‘s disease makes me crawl on my knees
Pulls me under in quick sand, makes me understand

Carbon phrases take all their ways to find you
A phrase of love I‘m afraid can‘t be shaped without heart

Carbon lines fill space to create the perfect stream
The Poet‘s dreams are fl owing in it, incomplete

So call me, reason, tell me your name!
For I‘m the father of time
Find me all season cold in my grave
Setting my mind to unwind the perfect line

My creation
Through you my youth unholds its fire
Ideas reveal in semantic spirals, concealed

You can read between the lines
What you‘ll find is grace
At the bottom of humankind

solo - Christian
solo - Danny

And once you feed the fire
My will is set ablaze
Strings of thoughts move towards my consciousness
Prosaic cynic‘s disease makes me crawl on my knees
Pulls me under in quick sand, makes me understand

solo - Christian
solo - Danny

Feed the fire
My will‘s set ablaze
Strings of thoughts move towards my consciousness
Prosaic cynic‘s disease makes me crawl on my knees
Pulls me down with her hand, makes me understand

Carbon phrases take all their ways to fi nd you
A phrase of love I‘m afraid can‘t be shaped without heart

Carbon lines fi ll space to create the perfect stream
The Poet‘s dreams are flowing in it, incomplete

Creating you...
Track Name: From a Hadron Machinist
Call on me - human source to nothingness
Blindly see through dreams
Unlock the key to a world by void concealed
On black ice beneath the sea

From Malkuth earth reborn
Walks the one to marry moon and sun
Be one refl ection

Sincere - your organic thought machine
Reckons the plane obscene
I can feel the deafening silence
Illusive asylum arriving for real

Contemplate on things that one
can't see for real or feel
Foresee the consequence your deeds reveal

Into earth withdrawn
Lies the one to carry moon and sun
In fractured action

Sincere - your organic thought machine
Levels the plane obscene
I can see beyond the horizon
A stellar asylum – illusively real

Wasteland on the moon
in which you drown
Sink down in silence
Wasted, seethe in bloom -
solid body in liquid ash

From Malkuth earth reborn
Walks the one to marry moon and sun
Be one refl ection

solo - Danny

Sincere - your organic thought machine
Reckons the plane obscene
I can see beyond the horizon
Illusive asylum arriving for real

Coming off the sea
We have one desire - calculating infi nity

Sincere - your organic thought machine
Levels the plane obscene
I can see beyond the horizon
A stellar asylum - Illusively real

Sincere - your organic thought machine
Levels the planes obscene
I can feel the deafening silence
A string alliance – illusively real
Track Name: Cthulhu
I remember
Before the Watchers came
Before Time became a lie

I remember
When molten soil fed but fl ame
When we brought water from the sky

I am hunger
Contracting into cells
I am the anger
Wherein the hunger dwells

Asunder
My temples have been torn asunder
My children lost
Forlorn they wander
Until my body is reborn in thunder
That crushes the world

Cthulhu
Buried in the deep
Cthulhu
Awaken from your sleep
Cthulhu
No more in death to lie
Cthulhu
For even death may die

I can see where you are
Sense the fear in you
Taste the blood of a star
Feel me breathe in your soul
Like the poets of old
For they always knew

When the lids of the one eternal eye unfold
All-encompassing
Nothing but itself it shall behold

And asunder
The universe is torn
From under the endless seas shall be born a wonder
A rift in space-time to adorn and plunder
The ruins of a lie

I am the keeper of the gate
Herald of the Ancients
Physical mind
If you seek yourself in me
Me in you is all you will fi nd

solo - Morean

Asunder
Reality is torn
From under pulsing skin shall be born a wonder
A new breed of creature to adorn and plunder
The ruins of a world

Cthulhu
Buried in the deep
Cthulhu
Awaken from your sleep
Cthulhu
No more in death to lie
Cthulhu
For even death may die
Track Name: Alter Magnitudes
Lucid delusion of force
Illusions refl ect on their source
Refl ections to weaker minds appear
True when by darkness concealed
Re-open your mind
- Magnitude‘s divine source -
Sync into your soul
Be torn by light
Away from the boundaries of death
Activation -
As neurons blaze
A cell‘s invoking space inside your brain
Magnet‘s connecting to you
By activating the prefrontal cortex
Denominations decline in time
Your soul enshrines what brightly shines
Through the void science unwinds

solo - Christian

As neurons blaze
A cell‘s invoking space inside your brain
Magnets reprogram your phase
A static base collaborates
When orange haze cuts through the maze
Lucid delusion of force
Illusions refl ect on their source
Refl ections to greater minds appeal
Fascinating, but unbelievable
Re-open your mind
- Magnitude‘s divine source -
Sync into your soul
Be torn by light
Away from the boundaries of death
Track Name: Orgonism
A silent earthquake
Ripples along all senses
Invisible sirens spin astral beacons
Pull strings along the web of nerves
Tighten the noose around the core
Like sleep the vessels grow
Soaking in elysian juice -
and craving more
Invoking in the deep the source
of the glow
Gentlest trembles fl ow like streams
With every breath resistance bleeds
Swoon turns fl esh to lucid dreams
Of older spheres - and the torrent feeds
Through swelling ether - a raptured lilt
Through throbbing fl esh the neurons fl y
Minds dissolve in wanton tilt
Like angels falling from the sky
In Daath I emerge
Limitless, trailing light as mere shadow
In Chokmah I enter
In Tiphareth I strike
Secreting pulses
Nectar of the gods
In Kether I abide
Source of the glow

solo - Danny

Parallels merge in purity
Into a center of gravity
A hungry singularity
Gathered and harvested, never attached
As the pull of dark matter
Bends the stars with unseen hands
My spark sets creation in motion
From humblest cell to grandest lord
Amygdala beckons to the dance
Which fear itself abhors

solo - Danny

Where there was nothing
Now want is pulsing
The lie of self exposed as the joke it is
From primal urge and quantum foam
and hungry vacuum
A dimension is born
Free-fl owing fi elds awaken orgiastically
Earth themselves as untouchable shadow
Love Under Will propels the vessel
The temporary weave in the fabric of
worlds that is I
Orgonism
I
Organasm

solo - Christian

Massless bliss - oxytoxic tachyons
Endowed in ubiquity
Cannot be dragged into the
subluminal swamp
The blind observer reduced to a toy
Riding the pulse to where alpha
and omega meet
Spectres gather at the fringe
of incarnation
Accelerate to escape velocity
Momentum, take us to the other
side of life
Die
Orgonism
Die
Organasm
Track Name: Dyson Sphere - I.Mining the Oorth Cloud
Meagre pickings in the Kuiper Belt
But for the guardian on the cliff
In her pelt comets melt
And moons burst, but only if

Her 13 brothers didn't get them first
Out here, the dark hides more than gases
Beyond Nemesis we celebrate
Quite a few more Jovian masses

The Oort cloud is demonic
Giants crawl, robots trawl
The Swarm went transplutonic
All is spun towards the sun

The Oort cloud is fantastic
Tyche fell out of hell
Times are dire, and measures drastic
Gotta mash her before the crash

They broke the lightyear barrier
From the debris they spawn
Navigation on radiation
Ages at .c have dawned

The myriads that sweep the fringes
Conjoined they haul and hurl
and hug and tug, so thinnest fog
Becomes the oceans of the world

The Oort cloud is demonic
Thrusters heave, spiders weave
The Swarm went isotonic
Interlace Hilbert space

The Oort cloud is surrounded!
Higgs Fields retch, tendrils stretch
Absorb what once abounded
Move as one towards the sun

They are now the Oort Swarm
Dyson Cloud
Oort Swarm
Dyson Cloud
Just a matter of time now
Just a time now of matter
Track Name: Dyson Sphere - II.Assembly
As gases flee
And mantles rear
Let's get it on
This Dyson Sphere

What night sky now
What empyrean
Too late to die now

Rolling stria
Glowing, Cytherean
A stellar Pangaea

Sucking giants into spirals
With a pocket singularity
Sucking giants into spirals
With a pocket singularity

Mercury's iron bones
Venus' carbon wisdom
Mars's rocks and stones now
An astral nervous system

An iron prison
Sucking giants into spirals
To catch a star
With a pocket singularity
An iron prison
Sucking giants into spirals
To catch a star
With a pocket singularity

Saturn was easy
His moons a treasure trove
Uranos made us queasy
And Neptune downright sick; but Jove -

- Torn apart between two black holes,
a thousand earths almost fell,
crushing all, out of control -
That did not go so well.

Darkness wanes -
The Swarm's embrace
Has been attained
As everything
clicks
into
place
Track Name: Dyson Sphere - III.Kardashev 2.1-The God Oven
Day and night have gone now
Time to spawn now, a new dawn now
Between twin skins
Biogeny begins its spin
Seeps along bionic skeletons
Lines become vines become spines

Holoplasma
Growing, imperial
A clasping miasma

Conjoins
Incubates
What will awaken?
Expands
Incarnates
What will awaken?

An iron prism
To hatch a star
An iron prism
To hatch a star

Life seeking life finding life
Surviving and thriving, the hive comes alive
Lurching, searching, awed and flawed
The church becomes god

We cling, we dive, we float, we forever
Calibrate and navigate
Hiccups of wars
Swamps of infection
Distinction and extinction

A sentient surge as minds merge
What will awaken?
Post-biotic ascension
A continuous expansion
All must converge now!

What will awaken?
The Great Beast stirs in a brand new body
Profusion through astral veins
Evolution sheds all chains

What will awaken?
Kaleidoscope to mosaik to hologram

Code turns to spell
Turns life forms to cells
In circuits and covens
The hive mind is woven
Stirs in its shell
The God Oven
In its shell
The God Oven
Track Name: Dyson Sphere - IV.Sol Omega
Sol Omega
Now all is one
Centaurus and Vega
Let's join the Alpha party
Sol Omega
The seeding has begun

Nurtured on boundless power
Event horizons dawn
There's more stars to devour
Mite to raptor, we must spawn

Sol Omega
Let's get the fuck out of here
Sol Omega
Let's get out of everywhere

Thrusters flow, star in tow
Plasma grows where lasers nestle
Iron rolls to the poles
The Dyson shell becomes a vessel

Our deceased
Have been a gambit
Greatly increased the swarm's
Ancient ambit

This orbit
Grows morbid
All gather!
Ready?

Pull!
One last convulsion
Pull!
Every stratum now striatum

We have propulsion
We have embarked

All that's needed
A universe of parts and particles
Waiting to be rearranged

All ingredients are here
Nothing needs to be added
Let alchemy suffice

Nothing else required to build - a world
Architects of evolution
In Malkuth we reside

In Malkuth we belong
Track Name: Funeral For a Continent
Under the world
In timeless frost and fire cocooned
Cloaked in winged death
A vast tectonic moon

Ten million years,
Scorching rock and flesh, descend,
Howl their epitaph
A funeral for a continent

Within the naked bones of earth
Crushed in mummified embrace
Where stony fangs claw into space
A slow cold heart awaits rebirth

Rumbling in his grave
Pounding in the deep
Putrid fuming Erebus
Stirs in his sleep

And from the East
The storm's atrocious blades
Bring heaven's wrath,
Skewer and cascade
Upon the brave
Desperately they creep
Ride the tail of the buried Beast

Above the skeleton of god
In endless midnight, spectres dance
Where land and sky in endless trance
Dream in the dark of living blood

Lie in wait
Bide their time
Craving flesh

solo - Morean

Arise
Man against rock
Heart against ice
With devil's tongues the mountain calls
Bodes blinded glory
To the worm that crawls
Taunts mortality

solo - Christian
solo - Danny

Eyeless whiteness
Soundless
With devil's tongues the mountain calls

A summons for the damned
Shades of Azrael
With devil's jaws the mountain mauls

solo - Danny

Yawning chasms, ghostly waters
Falling through a maze of blue
A quick demise for him who falters
Worlds born anew for him who knew

That underneath this silent death
A frozen chthonic empire lies
In crystal pressure draws cold breath
Awaking slowly beneath the ice

And from the summit
The other side reveals no drop
But 24 million billion tons
Of living, shifting tombstone
For a forgotten world

To elevate
Our vermin fate
In the abyss
We take the bait

Defy the weight
Of earth and sky
Rejoice to die
For one brief kiss

Deep in the bowels of the earth
Magma heaves towards the void
Unseen thaw feeds mangled rock
And within it, secret life

solo - Christian / Danny / Christian / Danny / Christian / Danny
