Album Notes
The album opens up with an emphatic declaration of freedom from the alien oppression experienced in Deus Ex Machina: Metallum. Three factions quickly arise from the ensuing anarchy: scientific, religious, and government. Each group focuses on their own interpretation of what will enable the civilization to flourish rapidly. However, there are clear divisions that separate them, almost to the point of exclusion. Yet, advancements are made despite the disagreements.

The civilization develops at an astounding pace to levels almost unimaginable. And then… things start crashing down. Concern develops about a rapidly approaching cosmic body (comet?) that is calculated to nearly miss Earth. Only here, in the twilight hours of civilization, do the three groups unite to attempt to thwart total destruction. Alas, for most, this effort is too late. The comet passes, a polar shift occurs, and the ice caps fall into the sea, causing mass flooding. A very small percentage of the population escapes on boats, but the vast majority of the people are washed away in the universal solvent along with their hopes and dreams.
