about

Konkeror Detroit, Michigan

From the outskirts of Detroit, Michigan, Konkeror has only just begun to extend their reaches deep into the collective unconscious with their debut album, "The Abysmal Horizons." Deconstructing the musical paradigm through blistering speed and punishing force, Konkeror reigns supreme as the true manifestation of those ancient and primal elements long forgotten. ... more

Track Name: I, Monolithic
I'm destined to seek the origin of reality
Chosen, I am, the savior of humanity

Forging my name onto the pillars of time
Transfiguration of the mind
Unlocking powers once thought mythic
I, Monolithic!

Cloaked are the empyrean's ancient powers
Through me begins the epoch of sagacity

Praised, I'll be a legend for eternity
My name will be echoed through time
I'm destined to seek the origin of reality
Chosen, I am, the savior of humanity

Forging my name onto the pillars of time
Transcending higher states of mind
Bestowed with powers once thought cryptic
I, Monolithic!

Within the darkness I'll dwell
Transpiration from this human shell
Within the darkness I'll dwell
Transpiration from this mortal shell

Transcending higher states of mind
My name will be echoed through time
Possessing powers once thought mythic
I, Monolithic!
Track Name: Towers
"Scatter them!" the ancients cried aloft
as they concealed their secrets in the cosmic womb
"Collapse the towers of hubristic triumph!"
"Confound the children's tongues," they screamed from thrones

"Put to sleep the infinite knowledge, for they've become aware
Mere mortals can never be gods, their pursuits will only end in vain!"

Along the way, we have lost our essence
We have suffocated under the weight of our fallen towers

The reason of existence is hidden within us
Amidst the remnants, we have lost our way

"Put to sleep the infinite knowledge, for they've become aware
Mere mortals can never be gods, their pursuits will only end in vain!"

"Let them crawl through the wreckage of impious constructs!"
Ambition usurped by confusion
Punishment dealt in vicious envy
Retribution with no mercy

The ancients relished in their power as gods
The mortals cowered, their creation leveled on sod

Along the way, we have lost our essence
We have suffocated under the weight of our fallen towers

The reason of existence is hidden within us
Amidst the remnants, we have lost our way
Track Name: Incantations
Lo' spirits of the cosmic construct
I lie awake in this formless existence
Enter me into thy void
Bestow unto me the ancient knowledge of what was and what shall be
Merge my spirit with the boundless, ethereal river of space and time

Mankind shall burn the fires in spite of the tyrants who sit on empyreal thrones!
Mankind shall awaken the infinite knowledge of the omniscient ones!
Through me, a new Golden Age shall come, brighter and better by far than the old!

EXPERGISCERE ANIMA (be awake, soul)
EX NIHILO (out of nothing)
FIO UNUS (become one)

Mankind shall open the doors to that which is hidden
Mankind shall be free from the mystery and finality of death
Through me, the empyrean thrones above shall crumble at the hands of mortal men!

EXPERGISCERE ANIMA (be awake, soul)
EX NIHILO (out of nothing)
FIO UNUS (become one)
Track Name: Beyond the Abysmal Horizons
Approaching the nebulous dawn
Immaterial energies casting into the cosmic sea
Spectral entity before the creation of time

Deconstruction, incarnation, an ever flowing stream

Weightless, fusing, becoming one
Materializing anew from this coalescent matter that bore this conscious existence

I am beyond the abysmal horizons!

Eternal! I tread on dominions untouched by man
Immortal! I ascend the echelons of supremacy
Perpetual! Casting my shadow across the deepest horizons

Cleansed from the restraints of mortality - conquering death!

Deconstruction, incarnation, an ever flowing stream

I am beyond the abysmal horizons
Track Name: Creator / Destroyer
VITA DANTIS (life giver)
VITAE DOLOR (life consumer)
LATOR MORTIS (bringer of death)
INFINITA (infinite)

I am the bringer of death
All is vanquished to be born anew
I require no beginning
I am the bringer of death!

Through this dissolution
It is I who consumes all

And within me are the eons of iniquity and the epics of peace
From these remnants, a virgin existence is begotten

I prevail as the principle of consciousness;
the life-giver; the indivisible reality;
the infinite; the cleanser - DEATH

And within me are the eons of iniquity and the epics of peace
From these remnants, a virgin existence is begotten

VITA DANTIS (life giver)
VITAE DOLOR (life consumer)
LATOR MORTIS (bringer of death)
INFINITA (infinite)
Track Name: Usurpers of the Primal Womb
"I am the existential force
It is through me that all is born
With chaos and creation I consummate
Sculpting my throne!"

Before creation they receded from her womb
Scattering the shroud of darkness
The primal land they would consume
Carving their domains from her flesh

"I am the existential force
It is through me that all is born
With chaos and creation I consummate
Sculpting my throne!"

From the abyss, she was formed
To the abyss, she was cast down
Lying in her eternal tomb - to be awakened again

Entrenching the celestial scape, they rose against her
Treacherous spawn usurped her throne
Buried within her lie, the cosmic secrets of their creation and time

She was formed
To the abyss, she was cast down
Lying in her eternal tomb - to be awakened again
Track Name: The Pillars of Creation
The Pillars of Creation call out:
"What is it that your kind so desperately seeks?
Why must you sacrifice yourself to better man?
To absolve yourself from their apathy?
To absolve yourself from their blindness?"

All fades with time, all returns to dust
All fades with time, all can be measured but we!

"What is it that your kind so recklessly strives to achieve?
A conceited existence built from self-destruction?"

"I absolve myself from their apathy!
I absolve myself from their blindness!"

"There is no greater existence, no higher states of power
You simply exist to be a mere conception of chance!"

All fades with time, all returns to dust
All fades with time, all can be measured but we!
Track Name: ...And the Cosms Flow Eternal
All which was will be forgotten in time
An existence spawned by chance - a microcosm

An evanescent splinter in the cosmic eon
Myriad conquests carried out in vain
We were born from nothing
And to nothing we'll return!

An evanescent being since the dawn of time
Inconsequential triumphs carried out in vain
We were born from nothing
And nothing we'll remain...

The cosms flow eternal
Infinite they are in space and time
Relentless is their currents
Unyielding is their destruction
The cosms flow eternal
Onward towards obscurity...
