Stéphane Gallay Nexus Artificial est un album d’une grande cohérence et j’aurais du mal à dégager des titres moins intéressants que d’autres. On a là un métal progressif qui tisse de très belles et très sombres ambiances. Favorite track: Newborn Sun.

Frederic Bezies SImply one of the best discovery I made since early 2015. If you like post-rock and metal, just listen to it ! Favorite track: Prayers.

about

"(...) Our progressive dreamers presented themselves to the world with a very fulfilling debut that leaves no doubt to the very promising road ahead, but in the meantime - dive into exceptionally good "Nexus Artificial"."
- Chris Kloczko, Metal Bite ( view full review on www.metalbite.com/tracks.asp?album=13441 ).

"O sile Nexus Artificial stanowią przede wszystkim urozmaicone i pokręcone konstrukty kompozycyjne pokroju Newborn Sun, w których co i rusz pojawia się wrażenie, że za tym albumem stoją starzy wyjadacze o niemałym talencie i duszach wzbogaconych w coś, co nazywam muzycznym szaleństwem. Nie spodziewałem się tak bezczelnie dobrego i niesamowicie dopracowanego materiału, który zaskakuje, czaruje i nie pozostawia miejsca na wątpliwości na kogo stawiać w przyszłości."
- Kamil Dróżdż, I'm Stuck Between ( przeczytaj recenzję pod adresem imstuckbetween.blogspot.com/2014/03/defying-nexus-artificial-2014.html ).

"Debiuty bywają trudne. Debiuty w Polsce – potwornie trudne. „Nexus Artificial” z całą pewnością nie brzmi jakby był to pierwszy album formacji Defying. Urozmaicone kompozycje, ociekające wręcz mrokiem, ale z całą pewnością nie przesadnie ciężkie. Smaczny, dopracowany, przemyślany i świetnie podany mrok. Świetny, polski album!"
- Norbert Nowicki, odkryjmuzyke.com ( przeczytaj artykuł pod adresem odkryjmuzyke.com/podsumowanie-i-kwartalu-2014-roku-muzyka-ciezka/ ).

"W zalewie deathcorowych popłuczyn i niestrawnych pseudometalowych kapelek Defying błyszczy niczym diament. Do oszlifowania rzecz jasna. Bardzo smaczny album, do którego można wielokrotnie wracać i odkrywać coś nowego. Polecam!"
- Dominik Stankiewicz, Stanley Recenzuje ( przeczytaj recenzję pod adresem stanleyrecenzuje.blogspot.com/2014/04/defying-nexus-artificial-2014.html ).

Redeem code

Track Name: Newborn Sun
Pitch black night
Filled with cries
Smoke of incense
Obscures the sky

A rite of tribe
for delight of god
I see the sacrifice
For Newborn Sun

Glorious incantation
Before the empty eyes
They cannot see
The Sunrise

Tempting smell of incense spreads
Bemuses and devours
So it starts the time of
Newborn Sun
Track Name: Portraits
Blood run drowns the ground
And the hunting begins

These wild hearts sing so loud
Holding skulls and feeding fear

The tomb beneath the trees
It's the only hide for you

But there's darkness in the cracks
They will find the passage through

Look, you fool, and see your fate
These graveyard souls have been remained
For too long, now they are screaming!

Through the forest of denial I walk alone
Pulled by greedy portraits, I die in agony
When all the things once they got
Despair, grief, anger, hate

These faces are alive
These portraits are real
Track Name: Prayers
Orb of light
Order lifeless disharmony
Touching unseen prison
Rapture of this misery
Alchemy...
From the human of stars
Voices...
Vortex, Emptiness
Cosmic creation
Breath from beyond
It's not yours...
Descendant...

I saw this shadow
Hiding in the metal cage
Secret was given
By the hand of god
Labyrinth of time
Lost in the forgotten past
Prayers of anger -
Coma from the sky

Descendant!

Creators of sun
Cult of birthgiver reunion
Millions of inferior souls
Waiting for response
Track Name: Mismatch
So he fell down
From the sky

A trembling giant
The masked reminder

The source of life
In his empty eyes

Never more feelings
Of pointless existence in here

Looking at shining vastness
Knowing, feeling my initial form
I didn’t choose to be here
I didn’t choose to dream alone
But the path is fatal, not eternal

The transition will come
The update will come
Still mismatch...
Track Name: Imitation
Other law
in another form
Genetic chains
describe errors

Wrong way
of architects
faulty inside
covers human flesh

Now obey
the greatest ones
We’ve been given
An order of new life

We are here
to spoil this world
We are your end
We are the law!
Track Name: Anaesthesia
Black interior
Chambers of thousands stars
Falling from the coldest sky
Full of dead memories
Emptiness of narcosis
Coming from the past
Self-awareness: suspended
By sword of other dimension

Dreaming...
Awaiting...
In unrest...
In darkness...

Screaming...
Awaiting...
In emptiness...
In pain...
Track Name: Suppression
Restored
The Sky is closing
Incoming darkness
was rejected
Destination - unknown

Remoted
The mission is over
The Origin is forgotten
The eye of god
leads us to our end

Restored!

The eye of god
leads us to our end
