Stéphane Gallay Efference, c'est les montagnes russes émotionnelles et musicales: un coup de ponceuse, un coup de plume. Et, curieusement, ça fonctionne plutôt bien. Il y a même plus de plume que de ponceuse, cette dernière servant de contrepoint très efficace – genre, au moment où tu penses que tu vas pouvoir te reposer un peu. (Chroniqué sur alias.erdorin.org) Favorite track: Efference.

Alejandro Emotive, dynamic, complex, soulful, and without a dull moment. This album is everything you'd dream the combination of prog and post-metal to sound like. One of the best albums from last year and definitely my favorite discovery, even in a year full of exciting new music. Favorite track: Efference.

Sunrise, crucible of light Oracular presence, enshrined Golden dawn, blessed by Apollo’s rays Solar beams intertwined Now, claiming our eyes Ablaze, baptise None halt your rise Dawn will claim my eyes Radiant high Ablaze, arise Morning star As its luminescence nears A healing sphere Darkness disappears Helios severs the fading night Aurora incandescent Circadian flight Searing, diurnal light Dawn will claim my eyes Radiant high Ablaze, arise Golden dawn will claim my eyes Radiant high Ablaze, arise Morning star

Efference 08:23
She lies here endlessly Held in dreamless waking sleep Here, further beyond Where waves stand still Like light I cannot hold Silently trapped by impulse latency Adrift on waves unfeeling Preserved in air I’ll never see Wander far from the real Where water sleeps, like light I cannot feel I’m here, waiting behind these quiet eyes Efference still holds me Don’t go I’m here, just behind the glass If I could, if I knew how, I would join you Wander far from the real Where water sleeps, like light I cannot feel I’m here, waiting behind these quiet eyes Efference still holds me Alive The deafening azure breaks over me A current of colour dyes my sea Awash in vibrant lucidity
4.
Left dormant, a festering plague Is sleeping in my withered skin Hope delayed Frail limbs stir in the harrowing still A threnody of memory Fears fulfilled by your will Awake on the altar Scent of corruption, resolve falters Air of atrophy fades Cast the world in darker shades Pale hands, furtive with spite Gather the grey light Some fall, some will rise Gain not the waking eyes Sallow shades will slake this dusk Endure, in grief entrust Raised on the flesh, my struggle declines By the shadows, my lifeblood consign No deliverance, nor sanctuary from decay Blistering radiance, lead me into the grey Set in my veins, I embrace this fire I offer my flesh to your silent wrath Fuel my torment, you hollow affliction
5.
Of Dawn 02:15
Cold fear sets in, caught in my skin Carried like shade on wind Never shall I breathe of the morn Faith forlorn The sun undone, withdrawn No dawn
6.
Phosphorous 04:57
Darkness has fallen, a liberating veil Restless, we steel our minds Anguish and agony, death by the flame This fate, we leave behind One shall remain, ensuring our passage His sacrifice taken on trust Gladly he’ll walk with the phoenix through death Together, their bodies to dust Forlorn, resigned to the flame, approach the pyre As condemning their bones, a trial by fire Abhor, abate, cremate Stood on the brink, my thoughts cold and still Watching my brothers take flight Quenching their hate with nuclear fire Devouring their light Bathing together in fission of flame I confirm all their fears Willingly burning as cold entombs me Our victory seeps in my veins Mind resolved, I sound the bell for their judgement Their end of days Sharing the fate of the zealots, I burn An illusion of ruin allows no return Cloaked in this fierce conflagration Like phosphorous burning my skin As the veil lifts, welcome the dawn Be free of your sin Absolution divine This flesh, a blazing shrine Darkness has fled, the veil undone Announced by the cold light of dawn The wind arises and hollow men stir Witness a phoenix reborn Eye for an eye, their judgement arrived By way of their bodies, now scarred Sentenced to wander the earth under shadow Forsworn in the eyes of their god
7.
Lost to endless sleep This mortal tide will carry me To the deep Set in darkness Rise in light Nurture silence Embrace the night In soothing dark, I’ll stay The roaring light is fading away Earnestly embracing me I occupy the astral sea A lifetime to rephrase Sail on undiscovered waves Sating my eternal gaze Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light I’ve loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night Through a haze of astral clarity, I guide my weary skin I am deafened by the whispers of the moon and of her kin
8.
Once we stood On the shore of the living Now she drifts away Out of my reach Afloat on her ocean of slumber Awakened to pleas of despair A bargain born of grief You would commit all you are Body and soul To buy her release Deliver yourself to me, she shall be free If you hope to follow her, be warned I grant no return Light fades away and all is grey As instinct is denied The river flows with him in tow Obey the mortal tide Submerged, he lay, his thoughts decay The current pulling strong No sense of time, just death sublime The waking world is gone Through torrents of biting rain Embracing the deep Into the maelstrom of pain Beneath waves of eternal sleep Eyes open, surface now Stand in the shallows beyond the real She’s waiting The river flows It draws below Through the mists ahead her soul is shining still In the half-light of perdition’s chill You resolve to follow, death defied Face the current, betray the tide The water stills A sudden chill Ascending from the water You will know my strength Your deceit lies in ruins I claim you Through torrents of biting rain Embraced by the deep Into the maelstrom of pain Beneath waves of eternal sleep
