    Sinmara was previously known under the name CHAO. The change in name sees the band develop upon their foundations of chaotic agression contrasted with haunting melodies, bringing forth a newfound maturity and focus of composition, masterful musicianship and a zealous intensity of execution. Along with the change in name there has also been a change in line-up, and the band now features members of Wormlust, Rebirth of Nefast and Svartidauði. Aphotic Womb takes the listener on a descent into a writhing underworld of diverse soundscapes and themes, from the harmonic chaos and orchestrated madness of “Verminous”, to the mournful elegy of the title track, and culminating in the eschatological epic “Mountains of Quivering Bones”. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered over a period of 2 years by Stephen Lockhart at Studio Emissary, resulting in a world class production, and features stunning artwork and layout from Alexander L. Brown at BNB Illustration & Design. Released by TERRATUR POSSESSIONS.

Track Name: Cursed Salvation
Father
Vast darkness
Release me from this cosmic illusion
Guide me towards the blazing flames, towards perdition
Odious deceiver: Bestow upon me the abomination of sight

Behold the immense blackness of the pit
And the crushing weight of its darkness
Descend into its madness, and gaze upon the spiraling void within a void
Within the midst of its horror lies the numinous flickering flame

Cursed Salvation
Cursed Illumination

A withering world revealed
Gangrenous wounds stand agape
Wounds upon Wounds

Behold the immense blackness of the pit
And the crushing weight of its darkness
Descend into its madness, and gaze upon the spiraling void within a void
Within the midst of its horror lies the numinous flickering flame
The Cursed Salvation
Track Name: Verminous
Harmonic chaos and orchestrated madness
Horrors absurd, psychotropic twilight
Reflected visions, praise be to the bearer of illusions!

Ominous nightmare of hideous foresight
Pester the psyche and contemplate death
Witness the warping of faces and the gouging of eyes
Beyond these neurotic walls

Deep within the corporeal synagogue
Rotten skulls infested with rats and larvae
Sanction the beckoning of storms

Entranced with loathing
Blinded by the flickering of stars
Draped in disorders
Delirious from the intoxicating odors
The cerebral shrine splintered
All spores swallowed
All dreams inverted
Track Name: Shattered Pillars
Come, awful light
Embrace this sanctuary with despicable splendor

Gaze upon these corrupt burrows descending
Ignite forsaken temples and inhale the rotting essence
As venomous incense enshrouds the stars

A cluster of storms
Breathing through wormhole mazes
Feeding gaping jaws the bitter waters of nausea
To harvest foul seeds and rape the crops of life
The demented ancestry of nebulae afar

Radiate darkness
Consume the life-giving light
Unravel all cosmic mysteries
Wash away the inbred children of abominations
In the blood soaked clay
Ascend through an ocean of broken bones and shattered pillars!

As the desolate grounds shiver
The blistering dawn will commence
Wretched monuments of horror
Manifested in feverish rapture
Behold the harbinger of chaos
Riding on cimmerian currents
Track Name: Aphotic Womb
All-terrible goddess of night
Whose shears rupture the cord of life
Inexorable bane of aeons,
I supplicate before thee.

As the autumnal gale falling leaves does blow
So my soul 'fore thy wrath does tremble with woe.
Hear my lament

Before thy black sickle it's harvest does reap
Take heed of my prayer o bringer of sleep,
I beseech thee

The sepulchral grounds glisten in twilight
As the sun succumbs to the shadows at dusk
The glare of the inverted torch
Illuminates the path towards descension

Herald of the highest gods
Carry me through chthonian halls

The charnel depths where serpents coil
Below the earth where light can't pierce the soil

Let me cross the frigid waters,
Where incorporeal shades coalesce,
Where eaters of ash and drinkers of mud
Form the choir of a thousand horrors

Imperious sovereign of all that breathes
No earthly sceptre shall impede
Thy pitiless hand whom all turns pale
Against whose touch all flesh is frail

Transfixed by thy spectral majesty
I prepare to greet eternity
Upon abyssal shores

Goddess of tenebrous grace
Enshroud me in thy black embrace
Let me rest in thy aphotic womb
Forevermore
Track Name: Teratoid Crossbreed
Licentious celestial beings
The two hundred watchers of heaven
Descended upon earth
And sink their teeth into the forbidden fruit of flesh
Defile themselves with the blood of the immaculate daughters of men

Touched by the divine
Stripped free from the boundaries of flesh
Revealed to them many ambrosial sins
Parturient with abomination
A teratoid crossbreed of the transcendental and mortal
Tainted by the fallen

Fountains of the great deep cry with fury
The lawless lurk for blood
Feasting upon all and own

Bound arm to leg
Imprisoned by putrid soil
Condemned to eternal grief
Burning in ethereal fire
Malicious lost guardians
Track Name: Mountains of Quivering Bones
Black skies overlook the earth
Coiling cancerous chaos lurks behind crimson clouds
The tainted nectar of life, a womb impregnated by death
Ominous silence, maddening, disquieting

The wailing cries of the trumpets pierce the air
An unearthly resonance sublime in resplendence
Harken the bearer of woeful revelations
as the morningstar’s descent draws near

As the final trumpet beckons
The coming of the day of wrath
The blazing star descends upon the earth
Collapsing upon the waters
Beyond fiery skies

Behold the manifold horrors of the yawning abyss,
as they spew forth in sulfurous torrents –
A tapestry of venomous fumes slithering, suffocating
Skin peeling, veins torn asunder
Lacerated eyes draped from sullen faces
Pillars crumbling, the earth penetrated
Rivers run black with poisonous blood

Ascend chthonian ones
Descend exalted ones
Usurp terrestrial thrones
Upon Mountains of Quivering Bones

For within the heart of life beats the pulse of death.
Transcendent in splendor, twofold poles in singularity wed
In primeval collision the two become one,
as earth is consumed by the wrath of the sun.

As the final trumpet beckons
The coming of the day of wrath
The blazing star descends upon the earth
Collapsing upon the waters
Beyond fiery skies
