about

The concept behind Integral’s sound can be summarized as the merging point of melodic death metal riffing, brutal blast beats, harsh vocal lines, deathcore groovy breakdowns and mellow fusion openings.
This concept will drive you through the 10 tracks of the band’s debut album “Resilience”, filled up with introspection and inner conflict-based lyrics.
Mixed and mastered by Ettore Rigotti (Disarmonia Mundi, Destrage, Babymetal…), the album also features Steffen Kummerer from Obscura and Tommy Talamanca from Sadist.
A recommended choice for The Black Dahlia Murder, Beyond Creation, The Faceless, Gorod and technical death metal fans.

Track Name: Collapsed Cubes
Within a urban view
we drown inside our arrogance, so we
need to have someone to hate
feeding our biggest ego.

My ear is dull,
my eyes are blind!

There’s nothing beside me,
I’m the best solution,
conspiracy is a mental format.

Walk to the gray horizon,
assault the yellow twilight!
These collapsed cubes
are now my un-sweet home.

Broken glass as sheet,
blank claustrophobia rises!
We drown inside, fading shadows run.

I walk to the gray horizons, these collapsed cubes
are now my un-sweet home.

While sun’s crumbling down
I’m grinding greed for you
provoking the combustion of the soul!

Fuck others’ mind pornography
crushing nightmares
twenty-four degrees
by the blind spot.

Descend into depravity
with an idea of superiority.

Unload your retribution!
Choose your enslavement!
A circle! I bless you from my
throne of dust!

Drink a swallow of disorder, become drowned like me!
Track Name: In(Earth)
Hidden in front of the
picture frame, the blue
planet is watching us.

Hidden in front of the
picture frame, so close to
death... Inert.

They
called it the blue planet, because that was the
color of the water covering it.
The golden sands of deserts and
green tracts of land were in total balance
so as to made it the only livable… Place.

And
there on Earth, on her surface appeared the man,
the most useless race that nature could create,
from the beginning an incurable cancer.

Characterized by too much intellect,
capable of creating artifacts,
but unable not to destroy!

And the infinite ability
of masochism with which we’re endowed, made us
crushed by power grids that never cease to dazzle.

Suffocated by the air that we colored in black and gray.

Maybe unable not to destroy,
capable of creating artifacts,
characterized by too much intellect.

That’s because we don’t want contact with the outside,
to stay cooped up in our bright individuality.

Hidden in front of the
picture frame, the blue
planet is watching us.

Hidden in front of the
picture frame, so close to
death... Inert.
Track Name: Realm of Atlantis
Tell me time traveler
how the sea drowned out your steps.
The eons that you have sailed with
a perpetual cosmic journey
haven’t changed your living!

Brave on the edge of glory,
came out from the labyrinth
defeat that led you
in the darkest depths of being bowels,
illuminated by the light of consciousness.

Tell me time traveler
how the sea drowned out your steps!

Brave on the edge of glory,
came out from the labyrinth
defeat that led you!
Your kingdom has gone,
emperor of wisdom and science’s oceans...

Wildly thrown from your throne of dust,
that has covered your empty eyes wetted
by the sea.

Shreds of your dream broke the failure blade,
enlightened by knowledge,
imprinting your effigy in time.

Shreds of your dream broke the failure blade,
enlightened by knowledge,
expanding your core in every dark galaxy.

Rise! Indelible and majestic kingdom,
rise! Majestic kingdom of Atlantis!

Wildly thrown from your throne of dust
that has covered your empty eyes.

Rise! Indelible and majestic kingdom,
rise! Majestic kingdom of Atlantis!

Rise!
Track Name: Mac Brazel
Remember that night of July,
dark sky from gray to black,
whispers in the quiet wind,
smell of freshly cut grass.

On the horizon a red dot
runs up fast and magnetic.

That night awakened by a shot:
cosmic electrons explosion!
Chaos and confusion in the minds
and shadows run from nadir to zenith...

A white aura surrounds its emptiness.
Open wide your eyes to the spell.

Sunk in questions,
let yourself be embraced by fear!

They are here among us,
cosmic trip through the universe
to enslave our brains
and to erase our alien race.

To erase our race
or enslave our brain?

Open wide your eyes to the spell,
chaos and confusion in the minds!

That night awakened by a shot:
cosmic electrons explosion!
Chaos and confusion in the minds
and shadows run from nadir to zenith.
Track Name: Hieroglyphica
The world naturally creates,
but also it destroys.
It’s a huge energy load
that bounds events and creatures.

Cores in motion,
absorbed in spirals that converge.

Indeed, the starting point
is the same of the arrival,
a cycle of cause and effect
generates every single cosmic stream
and a clash of magnetic systems!

But I tragically approach it
at the distant and misty pyramid,
that contains the wisdom
flowing trough the trip.

I can feel my eyes going back
to the beginning of the trip,
when the pyramid was touched,
in the clash of the original creation,
because it’s the only way you can master
with such an enormous power.

The pyramid was touched,
in the clash of the original creation,
because it’s the only way you can master
with such an enormous power.

Only this could change
the normal path of changes
that leaves to the world
the faculty of taking us back
to the beginning of the journey.

They’re all aimed at the creation
of a static equilibrium of the bright mass
which really never stopped,
in a course that converge.
Track Name: Room with a View
I got up from my cold bed because my
sleep was disturbed by thought’s cries...

I knew I was a masochist.
All I wanted to see was all I’ve never liked.
So that window seemed so deep and dark
that I could never have freed
my mind from her appeal.

Behind the white fiber I felt something
freezing blood in my veins,
maybe anger, a dull sound running in my feelings.

Angry and empty eyes don’t observe
and become blind,
hands cannot be stretched,
but they can close their fists to defend
the security of their own world.

Security (lives inside) of their (painful hands) own world!

Room with a view, so fit to see the world,
but so transparent to my reflection.
This’s the perfect view over selfishness.

A stone cannot dissolve like sand in the storm,
I’ve to find refuge behind the window.

Full glare of vanity and envy blinded my eyes!
Nothing to eat at the banquet of loneliness.

Security (lives inside) of their (painful hands) own world!

Room with a view, so fit to see the world,
but so transparent to my reflection.
This’s the perfect view over selfishness.

A stone cannot dissolve like sand in the storm,
I’ve to find refuge behind the glasses.

Now I can see so distant from my throne,
that I cannot feel what is inside the room.
It’s the time to close the drapes and go back to sleep.
Track Name: Self-made Oblivion
Nothing more that a spot in a scenery,
the work of art focuses on the artist himself:
an idea that takes shape in a thinking body
setting boundaries in every direction.

The picture falls on the canvas
in thousands of colors.
Spots are so many, often too many...
The thin line bond
joins them together with
indelible segmented trace paths.

The artist can change his thought
changing perspectives and lights.
His laboratory’s in motion.

Overloads the hairs of his brush
when he creates something out of nothing.

There’re multiple chances of realization
because real matter doesn’t exist.

Overloads the hairs of his brush
when he creates something out of nothing.

There’re multiple chances of realization
because real matter doesn’t exist.

Nothing more that a spot in a scenery,
the work of art focuses on the artist himself:
an idea that takes shape in a thinking body
setting boundaries in every direction.

The picture fills their beautiful game, frame, shame!
The picture fills their beautiful game, frame, shame!
Game, frame, shame!
Game, frame, shame!

The work of art rises on museum pedestal,
but only a spot remains on the scenery.

Self-made oblivion, made by greed.
Track Name: Mechanical Existence Construction
There are many ways of knowledge,
because the vastness of the universe and time
makes the archive of knowledge
getting bigger, and evolution often hides the beginning.

Human speech is always the result of experience:
absolute knowledge does not live
in such a small entity, but lives
in the air that feeds nature.

And so few narrow and sharp wires
feed a fake knowledge with few coils.

Skillfully wave the web of deceit,
design a way to build sureness,
and so few narrow and sharp wires
feed a fake knowledge with few coils.

With the steady eye of those who want
to convince themselves
without even realizing this goes to affect the rest.

and so few narrow and sharp wires
feed a fake knowledge with few coils.

With the steady eye of those who want
to convince themselves
without even realizing this goes to affect the rest.

It, with a little willpower and latent laziness,
will end up being continually subjugated.
