"Since its inception in 2000, Viscera/// strayed quite a bit from the grind paths they were threading. What started out as a straightforward brutalcore band meandered into an experimental quartet.
With the introduction of psychedelic sounds, postcore bits and ambient/drone pieces it's quite easy to brand this outfit as the next "post"-band. But there's more that meets the eye:
The band never completely let go of their roots, balancing brutal grindcore with delicate post metal influences. This results in a truly unique sound that can shift from fragile to frenzy in a heartbeat.
With this latest effort, 2 - As Zeitgeist Becomes Profusion of the I, these Italians produced their most ambitious and mature offering to this day which makes it the most complex yet accessible listening experience Viscera/// ever offered. "

Track Name: Ballad Of Barry L.
Have you ever tried to scale your worth? Because I did.
Huge estimation mistake before the eyes.

Then closed the door, practicing ego-dissolution
Meeting Id quo maius cogitari nequit.
Track Name: Hands In Gold
A ghost is getting wiser
Those days took lucid visions
And I'm not that sure I can rest pure and safe until you're alive.

You were right there by my side while I washed gold away from me.

Here calls the mid tale,
The one about the sneakiest of wills
I'd never really claimed to be confessed.

Revive it again.
Revive the same old wonders
When no way they will shine as they did once.

So sorry but it's time to settle. Time to fill the self.

Centuries into seconds distract from the concrete.
why me and why now?

Where were you when senses and cogitation took control?
And how dare you expect to understand?

Here rises the wretched winner
He's been waiting a whole lifetime
To accomplish that all hope is worthless.

Here comes the weakest of men
He'll lie in the cleanest of lands
Smiling, buried under tons of reckonings.
Track Name: Um ad-Dunia
Um, here begging you again.
Nobody wants believe in the
Relationship between
Concepts of truth and magnitude.

They don't deserve to share
Secrets and thoughts we only use
To contemplate through spires
Rolling inside and freezing the soul.

They froze my soul.

The throne is emptied of its king
He will lead himself no more.

Sometimes I've been deeply scared by him
But lately he's been shown for what really is.
I plead you mother, if you're still with me
To give me the cold for the coup grace.

Um, How long are we supposed to
Secure a being with no more shine
Or anything close to a value?
Just for a while, you promised so.

But here I am standing still.
You don't grow old but I consume
Myself in searching, each day,
A thrill which diverts
From asking you,
[Imploring you,]
Persuading not to let me be.
Track Name: They Feel Like CO2
Weird silence.
Skin is warning that the prediction is being made for good,
Six or more billion clouds ascend and turn invisible.
An ice cold laughing greets the intangible ones.

Never I could think it was that beautiful.

Dunia listened to the end 'cause
She adores the weakest of her
sons although he went too far with
volitions and a lonely, conscious ego drift.

Some said that the richest men in the world
Are those who have nothing left to lose.
Some say there's a richest man in the world,
One who will rid of something, of someone...No.

Anima mundi.
Showed your glory
You're the tangible aspect of my ethical.
I offer my spirit
But please I implore you to keep it away
From billions coming up.

Billions feeling like CO2.
