about

“Esa es la tragedia: La consciencia nos ha obligado a adoptar la postura de procurar no ser conscientes de lo que somos: pedazos de carne que se estropea sobre huesos que se desintegran."

"This is the tragedy: Consciousness has forced us into the paradoxical position of striving to be unself-conscious of what we are—hunks of spoiling flesh on disintegrating bones.”

(Thomas Ligotti)

about

Carvakas Santiago, Chile

Carvakas is a death metal band formed in 2010 in Chile.
In musical terms straight inclined towards death metal including progressive dyes in some passages of the compositions. Carvakas is inspired by an old materialistic philosophical school in India. This current posed that the physical or material world is all there is, therefore, heaven, hell, an immortal soul or god is nothing but a hoax. ... more

Track Name: Senselessness
Nothing at the end of the ladder

No prizes
No progress
NO SENSE!

Incalculable becoming
Infinite possibilities
To Determine
The indeterminable? Chaos!

Do the stars have revealed to you?
Uncertainty
Is the nature shows you a structure?
Randomness!

The words mummify movement
reductionist egomania
Exist?
It's just a word!

Do the stars have revealed to you?
Uncertainty
Is the nature shows you a structure?
Randomness!

RANDOMNESS!

Nothing at the end of the ladder

No prizes
No progress
NO SENSE!

Drawings in the air
Pursuit of a lost fullness
¿Realization of the species?
Delusion!

Do the stars have revealed to you?
Uncertainty
Is the nature shows you a structure?
Randomness!

Adorning with mantras
adding pomposity
Covering to avoid
An ephemeral and ridiculous move

Do the stars have revealed to you?
Uncertainty
Is the nature shows you a structure?
Randomness!

RANDOMNESS!

Predilection for predictions
You are afraid!
Because at the bottom of things
You perceive instability

A hostile universe
Makeup for the convenience
An absurd predisposition
Disguised as greatness

Senselessness!
Senselessness!
Senselessness!
SENSELESSNESS!
Track Name: The Self-Delusion
Interpolations to the past
Sensory information
Assembly in retrospect
Momentary unification

Vertigo of the understanding
Fluctuating neural processes
Which are arranged forcibly
Reification of cognition

It is a collective hallucination
A Cartesian theater
A narrative construction
Self-Delusion!

The first-person observer
Witness of the world
Possessor of an alleged privilege
Smokescreen

The knowing subject
The object that makes itself known
A fixed and durable being
Is it possible?

Generation of illusion
Identification behind the machine
Invention of an immaterial engine
The Self takes the wheel

Virtual reality
cerebral homunculus
circular representations
Imaginary inner self

Integration, emergency, reemergence
Cacophony of meaningless phenomena
Filtered by a control center
Glare of a need

It is a collective hallucination
A Cartesian theater
A narrative construction
Self-Delusion!

A ghost, a simulation
Stay in mental retina
A false notion created
For a dualist cognitive paradigm
Track Name: Flesh Over Bones
Chained anatomies
To the deterioration of its pieces
To the failure of the whole system
Magnification of the simple

Mechanical processes
Chunks of matter
Wandering in the cold universe
Away from the essentials

A biography of errors
Rising and falling like waves
Very little learning
Faced with the experiences

Dying rationalizations
Suffering indoctrinations
Trying to hide
Behind a curtain

Mechanical processes
Chunks of matter
Wandering in the cold universe
Away from the essentials

Densely tightened layers
Of a naive realism
Articulated parts
On the verge of collapse

Pretensions of an essence
Aspirations to perfection
Wicked prestidigitation
Anthropological duality

The mirror reflects
a masquerade
Unveils the outlook
A landscape of fictions
Death is a chimera

Flesh over bones
Thinking
Rotting
Lost

Flesh over bones
Disintegration!

Inhabitants in conflict
Fracturing Immanence
Spreading hysteria
Instilling the supernatural

Mechanical processes
Chunks of matter
Wandering in the cold universe
Away from the essentials

Flesh over bones
Thinking
Rotting
Lost

Flesh over bones
Disintegration!

Phenomenal self-patterns
Conscious of their own tragedy
Simulating unification
Changing…
Changing clothes!
Track Name: Biological Paradox
Organisms that try to hide and cover
The silent abyss that awaits
Delusion as a defense mechanism
Threat to the welfare

Abomination of nature
Evolutionary absurd
Exaggeration, a failure
In the oneness of life

Being Odd
With what surrounds us
Helpless asking
For conciliation

With no right
To reside in any place
Powerful
Only in the vicinity

Sometime, somewhere
Macabre product
of evolution
A tragic turn of chance

Sometime, somewhere
Macabre product
Irruption of
BIOLOGICAL PARADOX!

Not invited guest
New eyes watching the
Sinister
Rooted to the land
Projecting
Reassuring fables

Life exceeding its goal
Bursting… Bursting… Bursting…
Bursting itself!
A kind armed in excess
With a two-edged sword

An uneven blind mutation
Emergence of a new organism
A leap from non-consciousness
To consciousness as the difference

The paradoxical imperative
Of being and not being aware
Coming out of the womb of nature
Under a wheel of lies

Organisms that try to hide and cover
The silent abyss that awaits
Delusion as a defense mechanism
Threat to the welfare

Abomination of nature
Evolutionary absurd
Exaggeration, a failure
In the oneness of life

Being Odd
With what surrounds us
Helpless asking
For conciliation

With no right
To reside in any place
Powerful
Only in the vicinity

Sometime, somewhere
Macabre product
of evolution
A tragic turn of chance

Sometime, somewhere
Macabre product
Irruption of
BIOLOGICAL PARADOX!


Impregnated with poison
Contradictory embodiments
Of a twisted logic
Of a PARADOX
