TehDonzzy One of the many top-tier Canadian tech death. Should be in your collection already if you dig Archspire and Beyond Creation. Favorite track: Psychotic Afterlife.

Janus123432 Fast, technical, chaotic and outright freaky. This is an absolute monster of an album. Favorite track: Étât d'Contrôle.

Maison Planàterre Tel un bolide inarrêtable, la musique de Unhuman roule, glisse, dérape, frappe et renverse tout. Elle ne fait pas que plonger dans des descentes infernales, ou s'élever dans des montées célestes, elle s'engouffre dans les ouvertures possibles en raréfiant l'oxygène et en gelant les réactions humaines. Wow! Divin! Unhuman!

Track Name: Chaotic Equilibrium
Born in a World that nobody really choose in this chaotic era.
A lifetime seeking for the reason to be alive instead of simply being dead
All this pain we're going through since our youngest age
Does anybody really care about it?!
It's all the same bullshit for all the same people
Rich or poor, powerful or not, nothing will change cause
We're all the same race

Now reach others, those who think only of themselves, their family and close friends
Individualism just can't survive this way anymore
Don't let the evil eye who's watching us all create fear, pain and darkness
We're all individually responsible for the actual worldwide mayhem!

These countries which fight for justice
And freedom fool us ceaselessly
We've the most clean yard
While blood flows on the grass of our brothers
We claim victory

- The blood of the enemy cleanses our nobility

Lead: Youri

Let us stop this submission;
This patriotic hate imposed by the "Hellite"
Together as one we stand
To create a Chaotic Equilibrium

Solos: Youri / Kevin

Once for all, the time of blindness is resolved
(all fear evaporates)
With all our love, and with passion, we the people are reconstructing this World!

Nobody will kill our dreams, our lives maybe, but it is impossible to murder a desire of freedom.
Track Name: Douces Pensées...
Tant de haine accumulée
Trop de souffrance crasses exécrée
Désintégration subtile
de joies anciennement fertiles

Générations déprimées
Évolution exacerbée
Robotique évoluant
La Machine nous dominant

Deus ex machina

Aveuglés par notre soumission
Nous n'avons qu'une vraie mission:
Consommer aveuglément
Et ne vivre heureux que superficiellement

Je suis le Maître de chaotiques visions négatives
Qui me font détester tout ce qui constitue la vie sur cette terre:
Poussière errant dans l'Univers;
Dé primant sur toutes ses faces cachées du même coup;
Dé roulant sans cesse le mauvais sens d'amer pensées sans goût
(Qui croulent en moi)
Crachant rigoureusement mes nerfs moroses
Terre à terre, face à face avec ma névrose...
Planté devant mon propre sentier sans fin!

Ne pouvant vivre dans ce néant
D'inactions dont je suis le témoin conscient
Mon corps se dessèche comme l'Agapë
Dont l'Humain est désillusionné

Douces pensées...

Visualisation sagace de mon âme impure qui pourrie
Fantasme de mon imagination, je sens l'essor de mon esprit
(Errant doucement dans mes pensées)

Solo: Louis

Auri Sacra Fames

l'Humanité indignée
Par sa propre médiocrité

Trop d'humains sont confrontés
À leur réelle destinée
Le retour aux sources est la seule voie possible
Sans quoi un laisser-aller mortel sera irrévocable
Track Name: Mutants War
This story is my mental conception of what war's aims could be.
It's like a fast-forward into the future showing a violent story.

Another fucking war is beginning
For some fucking reason, too stupid to conceive,
Innocent citizens of our country don't know why this war has to be.

The U.S.A threw a narcotic bomb on our country
And the citizens slowly putrefied
Their lungs respired into hydro gassed breathing systems
And their beating hearts pumped irregularly

The well-known concentrated
L.S.D. along with a mixture
Of other chemicals turned them
Into aggressive Mutants ...

People became insane and started fighting among themselves
Totally unconsciously. Any object became a weapon. Many died in senseless fighting
while others rapidly disintegrated, "putrefact"...

Finally, the United States army burned the rest of the city,
Including the innocent citizens who weren't
Affected by the radiation of the experimental
Drugs bomb ...
This day thousands and thousands of litres of boiling blood flooded all over our streets.
Track Name: Hallucinogenic Symphonia Delirium
Immenses entres ténébreux habités de monstres affreux
Situés au milieu de nos terres, d'où nous vient cette énergie amer
Qui succionne mon "positif" et me rend faible, agressif!

Plonge ta tête dans ce baril; ce contenant à désespoir
Voit comme la vie te trahie; dévierge ce sentier d'étain noir…

Solo: Youri

Marchant seul dans ma bulle
Je m'évade et je fabule:
Le sol se met à bouillir
Mes pieds fondent et je délire

Derrière ce voile, le sort m'attise
Les Vouivres et les Hydres m'aspirent
Ces succubes tentent d'apaiser leur
Soif insatiable à étancher!

Hallucinose onirique
Obnubilation; onanisme:
Estos demonios gritan,
Ayudenme a huir de ellos

Je m'éveille allongé, flottant au dessus du feu
D'immense diables vêtu de sarraus m'observent nu
Le temps est venue, je dois quitter cette vie;
Mon sommeil paradoxal met fin à cette lente agonie!
Track Name: Sécheresse
Cette Sécheresse nous envahie
Les Dieux nous auraient-ils puni ?
L'irrigation est impossible
Bientôt nos réserves seront vides

Le soleil pour nous allié
Se voit dès maintenant devenir ennemi
Le zéphyr de plus en plus dense
Se transforme en vent de vengeance

De notre région éloignée, isolée
Nulle aide ne peut être apportée
Nos réserves vitales sont épuisées
Et nos espoirs désintégrées

Rétroactif d'une peur de la mort
Nos habitants s'affolent évidemment
Parmi nous semble se former une horde
Qui pour boire pourrait même faire gicler le sang...

Un gredin affamé se laissa emporter
Durant la nuit il comtempla sa bien-aimée
À ses yeux plus utile comme nourriture
Dans son sommeil débutera sa torture…

Solo: Youri / Kevin

Il rassembla finalement une légion de meurtriers
Leur démontra qu'il n'y avait qu'une solution pour s'abreuver
Unanimes, ils s'armèrent et allèrent saccager
Le reste du clan qui périt dévoré par ces "Cannibales-Vampires" affamés
Track Name: Once Again
Once Again like a modern slave I'm still awaken @ 5am
Once again I'm pondering about this World Mayhem

The Birds just started singing
whilst the sun is shining
The sky has not yet turned blue
While planes start spreading shit in the air

I look at humankind and see what is true
Billion brainwashed sheep led by A bunch of greedy schizophrenic psychopaths

We’re all manipulated
chasing our own tail
Selfishness being what we preach

Our world is dying
In front of our eyes
And no one seems to fucking care…

All pushed in a pungent virtual pool of mud
We try to disregard the Truth
Surrounded by obedient ''Zom-bots''
All ready to serve and defend the oppressor…
The one who will eat, when you'll be craving for food
the one who will sleep
Comfortably while you'll be working at night still…
But there's no reason why we must obey them
Too many of us are conscious that this is bullshit

As a tightrope walker who would try
To cross above an ocean
Hands attached behind his back
We try to avoid the fall

Solo: Youri

Once and for all I'm here
facing reality
Trying to be Zen and Optimistic in Lucidity
Even if it's hard
We have to all make an effort
To wake our consciousnesses up
And break the psycho-illogical chains
Which maintain us slaves
Once for all
Track Name: [in]Human Being
Solos: Youri / Patrick / Kevin / Youri
Track Name: Étât d'Contrôle
Depuis la création d'l'argent, le monde est séparé
De stupides castes et classes sociales on été instaurées
Les plus puissants décident du sort du reste d'l'humanité
On lègue aux requins voraces le pouvoir d'nous contrôler

Aux yeux d'un riche, c'est quoi un pauvre?
Si j'meurt ça va tu t'faire quelque chose?
Gavé d'pouvoir, d'argent pi d'luxure
t'oublis ceux qu'y'ont pas d'nourriture!

Les corporations multinationales sont la pour nous avaler
Pendant qu'tu gosses sur W.O.W., ton cell, ton ordi, ta télé,
Tu vois pas dans quelle société totalitariste on vient d's'engouffrer
De par ton inaction t'es aussi coupable qu'un meurtrier!

Vitupérer impunément les pauvres, vieux, itinérants
éveille en moi la sédition et tellement d'autres frustrations

Le pouvoir change de main à main, c'est du pareil aux mêmes
On stagne pi on chiale pendant qu'eux tirent les reines
Le temps est venu de rapatrier nos droits et libertés
Toi et moi seuls par méliorisme pouvons décider d'l'aléa d'notre propre destiné!
Track Name: Psychotic Afterlife
Comfortable inside my grave, my true life is starting
As soon as my eyes open I fucking see nothing
Right now, I realize that I'm 6-feet deep
I've been a murderer, now this will be my punishment
... NO ...

Forever prisoner of my own Sinner's kingdom ?
All this is impossible, I must be dreaming ...
So I start breaking my coffin and digging through the soil
then grabbing my tombstone to lift me out of this fucking
... hole ...

Once back on my feet
the light is starting to burn me
I would like to see where I'm going
But my vision has left me blind

My purulent skin smells like a rotten corpse
My flesh is getting eaten by worms
I'm walking but I'm going nowhere fast
Until I trip on someone's grave

Breaking my knees in the wrong way
My bones rips my legs muscles
Impulsively I try to get up fast
So my two arms break from my shoulders

... Psychotic Afterlife ...

Solo: Youri / Kevin

I would like to scream but
My jaw is now dislocated
I wanna stand up and run but
My fucking legs are broken
Slowly my flesh and organs
Will be eaten by insects ...

Uncomfortable on this grass
The cemetery is now my home
Forever my soul is gonna stay here
My sentence is infinite
The vision of people I've kill
Will always come back to my memories
Kick my body, smash my face and spit on me...
...That's what the people will do
Psychotic Afterlife
Track Name: Individual Timeless Reality
Welcome to life, old child. Let's once again take place into your amusement park.
Don't be surprised or shy to play several sick games with us in the dark.
Now, let aside your pride, we're here to turn back time, we must now rewind our life.

Take a breath, inspired, expire and let yourself slide into the Tycoon of the night.
Feeling death, all around it flies, only a terrorless ride for us cause we're not blind anymore.

In this park, now, hundreds of spirits are playing to compensate a lifetime of hard work.
(But) When the night comes, thousands of dead souls are dancing everywhere, creating nocturnal artwork…

All Those Phantoms lay here forever
But they will not be together
Praying alone for eternity

Individual Timeless Reality

Smell Death, Inhale it, Exhale it
And let the feeling storm within the Chaos of your brain
Down your deafness, listen to those Ghouls Ghasts and ghosts shrieking through a night-in-gale, longing a master to belong to

Banshees silenced, still trapped between divergent dreams
...will become addicted to the purity of your energy
If you let them swallow your venom and penetrate your vulnerability

But your purity is now awakening...

Welcome to life, Young Child and for the first time,
let's take place on this throne you deserve
Don't put aside your Guides those obsidian golems, by night, are there to light up your path

This inquisition in darkness is about to end
In Nothingness you'll uncover the might to raise
Timeless Serenity you'll reach
Art of Dying you'll teach

You'll possess deliverance forever!
