This is an album concept created by Catalyst which tells a fictional story written by the band :

In the great vast universe, where each fate is influenced by several omniscient bodies, the human being is a living species which cannot question what was and what will be given. The universe and its boundless forces were created by a single entity, ruling over the world and protecting it atop its unseen throne. But the One Above All was aware the immensity of its creation would prevent it from bearing the burden of leading it alone… along with the deprivation of maintaining the balance between good and evil.

Upon realizing its lack of control over this world, the Entity engendered The Great Dawn, a day where it would summon eight guardians in order to achieve unimpaired cosmos order and harmony for aeons to come. Their majestic grip controls all that is and all that will be, cloaked in their abstract embodiment, as a gigantic and powerful presence.
The One Above All and its All-Seeing Creations then put themselves to work. A covenant was written, where the nine entities would pronounce themselves Masters of the Universe. The One Above All was appropriately named “The Chosen One”, while its eight servants where to be named the Lords of the Universe, with their only purpose being to assist the Creator in its quest.

The Lords then dedicated their existence to work with the Creator, protecting and ensuring stability to the worlds and the living. Earth was provided with countless resources in order to make it a living place, a safe haven for human beings and for all that lives.
Evolution prosperously worked its way through ages, and so did the unwavering bound between the Lords and the Creator. The covenant written ages ago sealed that peaceful state.

Although equality was reigning among the Lords, each of them was tasked with a predominant role, laying down some sort of hierarchy. The leader of the eight All-Seeing Creations was the Guardian of Nature. He is the incarnation and the protector of nature, pure and unharmed by virtue of its endless power. The second Lord was the Guardian of Livings, which mission was to create and preserve a subtle bond between all that lives, and to insure equality among the Superiors. In order to bind them, the Guardian of Ecosystem took an important place in the hierarchy, balancing the parity between the importance of species and nature among the universe. Also, to help them in that quest of the perfect balance of everything that is and everything that will be, the fourth Lord was appointed Guardian of Justice, inducing ideal and universal ethics. The fifth and sixth Lords were the Guardians of Time and Space, meant to work together, just as the seventh and eight Guardians, ruling the Darkness and the Light.

Despite this perfect harmony between them all, the Lords undergone historic change. About six thousand years ago, the One Above All decided to take back the powers it granted to the eight Sages. Unyielding, the Creator started his solitary reign over the universe…

But its might wasn’t even close enough to rule the cosmos by itself, unable to entirely master the world and to contain its creations. Step by step, a celestial tyranny was imposed by the Chosen One, breeding chaos and disorder in this once-peaceful core, spawning the darkest behaviour among humans, whom scoured to reign upon every other creatures.
Helplessly watching the world collapsing on itself because of the Creator, the eight Lords tried to bring it back to reason… unsuccessfully.
In a fit of rage, the One Above All reduced to ashes the powers of the Guardians. Devoid of their forces and of their abilities to protect the universe, the eight Sages settled to open the eyes of those drown into this shameful slumber, and to part ways with the Chosen One.
Powerless, the Guardians endlessly sought someone who would be able to help them recover their former might, and to restore the balance they conceived since the creation of time. That living soul shall be the Catalyst, who will bring the Guardians’ powers together and gift wisdom and knowledge to the universe.

Decision was taken that the eight Lords would conceal themselves among the mortals on Earth, in search of the one and only who would replace the deceiving Creator, the one who will bring balance back in a shattered world… the Catalyst.

Track Name: An Unworthy Covenant
WE ARE SET SOMEWHERE IN DARK SPACE
WAITING SOMEONE TO CREATE
A REAL NEW WORLD BUILT ON DEAD FLESH
EMBRACING OUR SENSE OF PURENESS

Unleash the wrath
Begin to see
And hear our voices
A wisdom call

From the void!

Here we were, eight great lords,
At the right hand of god
The balance for everything
For billions of years we’ve reigned

But the Almighty, scorned and foolish
Wanted to be dominant
Wanted to break the link
to be alone on his quest

We gaze our visions that
His throne is highly threatened
The crown on his head shall fall
with its great stature

Open your mind, Creator
Your world has passed away
at the moment, you’ve pronounced
The great banishment

THIS IS THE COVENANT
THAT MUST BE ENDED
THIS IS THE FIRST CALL
BEFORE A GREAT CHANGE

And now it’s the awakening,
The first light strikes our eyes
In this world, we are meant to be
Something else, somewhere else

(Solo Jules)

His ignorance is a threat
for our universe
Our parting was the way
We chose for your lives

Perfect harmony
is the only purpose
Guiding its failure
To our sovereignty

THIS IS THE COVENANT
THAT MUST BE ENDED
THIS IS THE FIRST CALL
BEFORE A GREAT CHANGE

And now it’s the awakening,
First light strikes our eyes
In this world, we are meant to be
Something else, somewhere else

(Solo Jules)

Nine we were, eight we are
We need someone to help us
In our quest, to master our powers
The shield, that protects us

We’ve decided to set our base
In a place called Earth
We have to find the catalyst
among the livings of this land

WE ARE THE LORDS OF YOUR WORLD

(Solos : Florian / Jules / Jules / Florian)

We shall resist to its infernal madness
And pronounce ourselves guardians of this universe

Since our duty is to protect everyone
From those storms that he controls and creates

We are waiting for the birth of this child
That deeply desires to change this hideous world

(Solo Florian)

Beg us and ask us for mercy!
We are the lords that conquer your lands!
Our journey will be a time to purify
And to restore our world to its great stature of yore!

This place is full of sinners
how can we find a master?
The Pureness doesn’t exist
We shall wait for that birth

Covenant is out !
Creator will fall !

And now it’s the awakening,
First light strikes our eyes
In this world, we are meant to be
Something else, somewhere else

And now it’s the awakening,
the path of light is written
In the end, we will be led to
Change the world, be the lords

“But don’t forget that I am
The master of this universe”

They are weak, they cannot destroy me!
They are weak, they cannot destroy me!
They are weak, they cannot destroy me!
They are weak, they cannot destroy me!
Track Name: The Great Purpose Of The Lords
This world between death and chaos
Has come to a term we are here to make a change

Here is your downfall,
You must drown with them
We will control you
There is no resistance

(Solo Jules)

We are the reason for a new kind
Creating the end, when our path will be settled
We have the mission to spread our power
And to bring back wisdom and harmony

The end of time is in our hands
And we are here to summon
The lord of light, the lord of time
Is what we need to make a new world

Lords’ great work create a new world
Pure dimension of eternity
Guiding us into your nest
Where we can find some rest

(Solo Florian)

THERE IS NO ESCAPE AROUND YOU
WE ARE HERE TO CHANGE THIS WORLD
OUR MAIN GOAL AT THIS POINT
IS TO MAKE THEIR EXISTENCE WEAK

(Solo Jules)

YOU WON’T FEEL THE PAIN
DURING THE LAST DAY OF HUMANITY
WE ARE ACTING SILENTLY
WE ARE SEALING YOUR DESTINY

Here to become your masters and saviors
That sail into the black of your chaotic world
We must descend and meet our destiny
We have the world’s knowledge, you shall watch and learn

We are not meant to reign in Shadows
We are the guides that all shall Follow
We will reign upon every kingdom
Bringing to life our sense of wisdom

We were far beyond every human
we are setting our throne upon all gods
The way to pureness, that golden aim
This is the ultimate key that we keep

(Solo Florian)

The end of time is in our hands
And we are here to summon
The lord of light, the lord of time
Is what we need to make a new world

Lords’ great work create a new world
Pure dimension of eternity
Guiding us into your nest
Where we can find some rest
Track Name: In Mist We Are Born
In a desolate place a child was born
During an infernal storm, he starts crying
By the power of the silent forces
His mother perished just after she gave birth

She was here, lying on the ground
With a new born that she left alone

INTO THE DARK
Why shall I be alone until my end?
INTO THE FLAMES
I feel like I’m a sinner burning alive
WHERE IS THE PATH OF LIGHT?
I’ve never known how to find an aim for my soul
HELP ME TO LIVE
Can somebody tell me how could I be enlightened?

WE ARE THE REASON FOR YOUR LACK OF LIGHT
without a guide I’m nothing, right here
WE ARE A SPELL FOR YOUR DEMISE
I found a reason in my hatred…

Animated by my weakness
I can’t rise myself
I am not one of them
Now, feel my pain

This void I feel inside my head
Is like the thousand words of the dead
Twenty years after I still feel the same
Wandering around the first place that I met

In this wood, where my mother died
I return here to end my days beside her

IN THIS FOREST
I can’t keep going here, I want to end up everything
I AM SO WEAK
I am not able to set an end for my life

(Solo Florian)

WE ARE THE REASON FOR YOUR LACK OF LIGHT
without a guide I’m nothing, right here
WE ARE A SPELL FOR YOUR DEMISE
I found a reason in my hatred
CELEBRATING LIFE IS YOUR DELIVERANCE
How could I when my heart is dead and cold?
YOU HAVE MET A TERRIBLE FATE
My fate may not be the one to blame
Track Name: Demophobia
I can feel a strange fear growing in my shelter
While my body is rubbing to other shoulders
I can feel your slime over your wretched body
The silly thing that you appear to be

Filthy viewer
I will be the actor
of our lives
Last chance for you to survive

Expiate your sins
Is what you deserve

Write my name on these walls
With red on white forever
This color is a symbol
The first sign of my power

(Solo Florian)

I am a human who has no place in the crowd
In this white mass with wise purposes
Am I the only one who understands this osmosis?
These vultures must die, chaos shall reign

Watch out, poor child
I am the clock chiming
At your doomsday
Identify your master

Bow down, my slave
Before your king

Write my name on these walls
With red on white forever
This color is a symbol
The first sign of my power

This is demophobia!
Kill this awful crowd!

Write my name on these walls
With red on white forever
This color is a symbol
The first sign of my power

Demophobia!
Demophobia!
Demophobia!
Demophobia!
Track Name: Celestial Resurrection
From an ancient spell
We’ve pronounced our resurrection
As we arrived on the Earth

We are coming down
from an unknown and unique world
We mark your land with our light

for the first time
All my world
Is collapsing
Around me

This arrival is the beginning
Of a new age
I saw them here, crossing my path
Walking towards me

They told me « here is our celestial
resurrection »
Their hands are carefully
taking me in their arms

(Solo Jules)

I’M UNCHAINED AND FREE FROM EVERYTHING

Eight lords they were, and have marched through this
SACRED LAND
Each step guiding them to myself,
THE PURIFIER.

(Solos : Jules / Jules / Florian)

Now I gaze to the future
Without any fences that can obstruct my view
Let me be your ninth lord
Everything is clear, from now, to the end!

(Solo Florian)

(Solo Jules)

Now my vision is
unclouded and clear
Freedom rests in my hands

Future and past are
making us mightier
Nothing seems unknown to me

Thus, they’ve decided to name me the sovereign
With words of power: « Go and do not falter, my Child »
Track Name: From The Last Sunset...
We saw the darkness in our crowd
The lights dwell where we are

We are the awakening
That will guide you all
You shall take our hands
We are your redemption

The fifth lord has blown into his instrument
As a great warning for all the living
Preventing everyone of what is coming to us
Tonight, is the last sunset before a new era

All my life, every act drove me to this day
Where I became the man appointed by the lords

(Solo Jules)

We have the sands of time in our hands
From the depths of your mind we are rising
Feel the pressure coming from your chest
DURING THE LAST SUNSET

Our bodies are roaming on your earth
as the shadow that is clouding your land
Our judgement is the right measure to
SEND YOU TO THE LIONS

(Solo Jules)

After the treachery of men
The world will not stand with them
Our lords will pronounce our judgement
Leading us to the red moon!

The night will help us to reach our purpose
Creating a mass of death on your land
Purification is the only path
Eternity waits for this extinction

Here is the day where the crowd will see
The almighty power of the lords!
They are the reason why from the last sunset
We will drive...
TO CHAOS!
Track Name: ...To Chaos
Back from a great vision that will change my path
The lords’ mission has found its answer
IN MY HANDS

From the last sunset the ancient beast
Will rise and drive us to this chaos
UNLEASH IT

I see images of them all
They die, perish through carnage
Towns burning into an infernal
And eternal chaos

There are innocents
That won’t ever see
What is coming for them
Serve!
Serve!
Serve your sentence
This is the way
To welcome our forgiveness.

(Solo Florian)

We are the justice and we keep control
Upon everything, you’ll pay the price
FOR YOUR SINS

I shall be the one that controls the wrath
You’ll see the wolf that leads all of you
TO YOUR LOSS

I see images of them all
They die, perish through carnage
Towns burning into an infernal
And eternal chaos
Track Name: The Empire That Failed
Now the first act of destruction
is set to guide us all
To the great light made by our stars
For a new world order

The empire that shall fall
Is fragile and weakened
We take control of this land
Together we are strong

I am the purifier
I am the chosen one
That have the aim to restore
A perfect sense of peace

With the eight lords I will reign
Upon a unique throne
You bend the knee before me
OBEDIENCE IS MY KEY

Beyond the living
Above all the stars
We saw the empire that failed
Across the cold space
Outside our conscience
They saw the empire that failed

Merciless shall be our justice!
As conqueror will come our reign!

During the Red moon, we appear
Helping all the people
To rise and to fight
To tear their heads off!

(Solo Jeff)
(Solo Jules)

The essence of this life is
Shattered and so weak
Ancient gods are crawling
behind me!

Through the chaos that I create
You’ll see my wisdom
Making our world prosperous
A place to live together

We are here to eradicate
This world in perdition
Kings fall with the empire
The Nature will take over

Now dismantling all your cultures
Here to kill countless foes
Replacing humans outside
his own self-centered world

Now I can restore our world to
Its great stature of yore
In an endless kingdom
THEIR FAILURE IS OUR ACHIEVEMENT

Beyond the living
Above all the stars
We saw the empire that failed
Across the cold space
Outside our conscience
They saw the empire that failed

No one will see us coming
We are the future of this world

They are paying the price for
(Their) errors and deceit
We are here to increase our
Dominance!

Track Name: For Whom Summons The Dead
Now it's time, to burn your hope
This life has no meaning for you, anymore
ANYMORE

I will act as your tormentor
I am the curve that you can see in the fog
This venom will cross your chest
Among the dead, you will prevail

Face all fears you feel
All that you trust
The sound of despair is here
So, let me scream
Fear the things I think
All that you've heard
Beliefs have nothing real
In our world

(Solo Jules)

Now it's time, to bury you
Six feet under, close to worms
I am here to wake you up
From your shameful slumber

Face all fears you feel

All that you trust
The sound of despair is here
So, let me scream
Fear the things I think
All that you've heard
Beliefs have nothing real
In our world

(Solo Florian)

Yes, my friend, I am really killing you with this
But you know what? I love that!
The pleasure to feel shattered flesh
Is so intense that I grin...
Uncontrolled emotions! Uncontrolled urges!
My life is changing as yours is ending
Now bleed my dear, don't forget to pray
The agony is a shame, FAKE MARTYR!

Bleed, bleed again
Feel the end and this void
Your life collapsing
Your power Fading away.

(Solo Jules).
