New single by MetaVoid. "Helios III: The Descent" is conceptually a sequel for Heliosophist, telling the story of a traveller from distant stars unearthing the remains of the dead human race.


dim light
among the stars
grim cold dark
a sphere once bright

I, the understanding
traversed the endless void
descend to frozen ashes
corpse of a fallen world

life once inhabited this place
fast it grew and decayed
beneath the surface lie the ruins
of forgotten tribes
conserved within coldness
a mass grave for a fallen race

I came to decipher
inscriptions of the buried
I follow the ascendants
retrace their dawning fate
a species drowned in chaos
conjured by bitter pain

And as I wake the souls
of ancient circuitries
their eyes are watching still
decoded by the spirits
unclouded ancient tales
reveal their monstrous terror

light years across the omniverse
mother awaits my word
reports on long forgotten worlds
nothing I offer this time
transmissions are denied
as I withdraw from this place

ascending above the atmosphere
memories haunt my mind
the horrors of this lifeless kind
no one will fathom my words
as I realize
we need to end this earth
