Sage 05:40
Looked into the flames, Saw my wounds The approaching days, Winter tomb I watched the end with my own eyes The vision cast into the sky Follow the sage and end divide She held the orb as all aligned There is a light, Incantation Into the eye, Go with the night Can the ending change, Altered road Will it be the same, Cost unknown I watched the end with my own eyes The vision cast into the sky Follow the sage and end divide She held the orb as all aligned There is a light, Incantation Into the eye, Go with the night I watched the end with my own eyes The vision cast into the sky Follow the sage and end divide She held the orb as all aligned

We're shown the path ahead What the morrow brings and what's to come Breaking down the gates Terrestrial escape Here we come to don the paint again Onward through the haze, Seal up the eyes of fate Onward through the haze, Seal up the eyes of fate The portal opens up Step through another world Brother Atlas, Guide me Following astral light On to the other side Until the darkness finds me In the smoke reveal another world, Universal fire never dies Dreaming wide awake, reflections in the flames Here we come to dance with death again Onward through the haze, Seal up the eyes of fate Onward through the haze, Seal up the eyes of fate The portal opens up Step through another world Brother Atlas, Guide me Following astral light On to the other side Until the darkness finds me

A frenzied look as the city shook What worlds above have cast down on us Are we cursed alone Should we not look up A siren's song trace the omen Into the ancient pyre always burning on Beacons unknown architect the tomb Floating in air offers from the sphere Into the ancient pyre always burning on Rising tide, Illusion dies Dream of life, Into the shrine Rising tide, Illusion dies Dream of life, Into the shrine Don the shroud, The dust to ground Destined to rise, Into the shrine

Manifest 05:22
Whisper in the smoke Speaking future told Long to go wandering off Stake the claim beyond There is a boundless climb Approaching walls of tide For the throne All I sow Give the ghost Into the storm I go Ocean pulling soul Coming from below Voyage out into the clouds Ride the orbit down There is a boundless climb Approaching walls of tide For the throne All I sow Give the ghost Into the storm I go

Now the timer in your hands As your days so is my years Redesigned to understand Plug into the new frontier Fascinated and compelled Superseding life itself Time could time the clock is slow Is the omen in the code Follow the orb into the onslaught I know, can't look away Gods to be born, ethereal profit Specter evolve to come for your tomorrow Now the waking gods be born Pain they know a million years Loop unbound an endless web Sink into and disappear Can't unseed electric hive Look away unblinking eye The creators mortal hands Built his master and his god Follow the orb into the onslaught I know, can't look away Gods to be born, ethereal profit Specter evolve to come for your tomorrow Who gave us tomorrow Who gave us tomorrow Follow the orb into the onslaught I know, can't look away Gods to be born, ethereal profit Specter evolve to come for your tomorrow

Higher the mountains seem as clouds Unspoken languages they know Light beams of all our dreams cast into the wind Our eyes are open lets begin Collective sound Flooded consciousness We are skybound Fleeting from the earth Visions unbound Spiral the web into the mind Commute with ancient satellite Remove the shell again converging to ascend Along the waves of cosmic tide Collective sound Flooded consciousness We are skybound Fleeting from the earth Visions unbound
7.
I been running, The ending cometh All under ancient sun coursing on the same What comes for me comes for us all Unto the ancient one All this not in vain Walls of darkness growing faster Vision the only master The waking dream We'll end this voyage sinking Otherworldly future vision Unending mission Sail to the end Until the tides ascend

about

Forming the Void invoke the progressive and heavy tendencies of Mastodon and Torche, the psychedelic and soaring melodies of Pink Floyd, and the rolling confidence of Soundgarden. With swamp mud stuck to their feet as they trudge forth from South Central Louisiana, they aren't afraid to slow things to a crawl, a welcome approach as shown by their last effort 'Rift' topping the Doom Charts at its arrival.

No strangers to the road, FTV have crossed the US alongside Truckfighters, Church of Misery, Kings Destroy, Gozu and Howling Giant. This summer sees them voyage to Europe to hit the road with Spaceslug. Their otherworldly sound has earned them spots on large festivals such as Psycho Las Vegas, Denver's Electric Funeral Fest, Stoner Daze and Stoner Jam at SXSW, Maryland Doom Fest, and Descendants of Crom.

For their new album ‘Reverie’, the band seeks to further explore aspects of the sound they've shaped on their previous outings, guided by a desire to strike a balance between organic and intentional. The result is an album that reaches new levels of refined depth, mystical energy and cosmic transcendence.

"Easily one of the year’s most anticipated records. I have high expectations and no reason to think they won’t be met on every level. Certainly the new song streaming doesn’t hurt my argument." -
