I can’t deny how much you’ve changed me history is but a shadow revealed by your shine minds transformed by your burning flame beacon of hope, illuminating our path: and so, our great journey began... We fought the dark, our journey bore your mark should we accept your gift or will your flame engulf us all? Now we have the tools to build our own future everything is changing, and yet it seems the same civilization is a spiral of eternal revolution
3.
You can run, but you can’t hide from the quiet flow of time the dark tentacles of fate push you towards your destiny and when you think you are free to live your life as you please you’ll find you’re nothing but a pawn of history There is a fire, a desire in my head eat my battered body, drink my wasted blood and tell me endless tales of who I am: the man who feels inside him that change has come There is a flame that burns inside me it guides me in the dark and it gives me strength its glow reminds me of who I am: the man who sees around him the seeds of a new world And so you will find me roaming the markets and selling my message in lonely despair those who shout loudest, should only be heard last away from their noise, my word will be heard Like honey let my teachings come to thee don’t let me be misunderstood again open your hearts, and then you will agree that I’m the man to change history Together we shall walk, hush don’t be afraid and we’ll exchange vows for the good of mankind in mind and spirit, I’ll be your inspiration comfort and joy in my name you will find Scientia Vincere Tenebras
4.
Lacrimosa... Tearful will be that day of doom when our empire shall collapse One last moment I have left to reflect upon my fate one last second I have left before my whole life fades away What can you say, what can you do When your dreams die in front of you? The sands of time, have crushed me under their weight One last moment I have left so I sit back and watch the end You’ll be there in my valley of memories what was once deemed great, is now a relic of the past stupefied, I wander in the modern world where everything that mattered is now shattered like glass As time goes on, empires collapse and when dust settles, only their ruins remain
5.
Emergence 12:17
What pains have we endured, and what an agony until united our minds stood and faced the world, while painfully it dawned: we’re quickly running out of time So much inhuman effort, so much sacrifice the breeze of change has swept away and all the aspirations we carried from the past betrayed by the wheel of time How can I find back what I’ve lost? How can my old innocence be restored? How can I erase the mistakes I made? How can I take back bitter words I said? So many times I’ve been deceived by my false hopes ‘till life stripped them away from me I sought and found you again, my precious lifeline but time has changed how we feel
6.
Sometimes I’m afraid that when I close my eyes the whole world will disappear Sometimes I’m scared, you know when I look at the stars That I’m lost -and God! for real Infinity, eternity they leave me and fly far away, only one thought tortures me: I am lost in an immense, indifferent and strange world and when I’m there, in my own hell my heart cries loud for you I hear the sound of horns, I see a beast appearing from the sea it has ten horns and seven heads looks like a lion, like a leopard it crawls I stretch out my shaking hand and touch the body of the dancing Shiva I want to scream, but I can’t instead I cry, shake and shiver Sometimes I really hope that the night never comes the darkness scares me, you know Sometimes when I feel that I finally reached the top my castle of cards falls when the wind blows I want you, I need you I can’t exist without you Don’t leave me when I’m lost again hold my hand and join me to the end of the world I hear the peal, it’s the Big Crunch in front of me there are two worlds the one expands, but shuts again the other one already I’ve lost Each of its particles pursues its own way I’m standing here and watch all this I’m all alone, what can I say? I lost you and I miss you there is no life without you Don’t leave me when I’m lost again in this crazy race to the end of the world

about

One of the standard bearers of funeral doom death return after 7 years of silence with their most crushing and aggressive release!

MetalTemple.com (10/10):
“Here we got inspired talented music.This is like a painting but with musical instruments.This album is nearly a masterpiece for me.”

La Muerte Tenia Un Blog:
"Seeking Infinity is perhaps the best doom release I have heard in a lot of time... I have been into this genre for 20 years now and listened tons of music and PANTHEIST... oh God, PANTHEIST is always there."

GrizzlyButts.com (4.25/5):
"It doesn’t feel like a gothic doom record but it features some of the thickly layered sound of one; Nor does it feel like a pure funeral doom record yet ‘Seeking Infinity’ carries an ambiguous surrealistic sound characteristic of most celebrated leaders in funeral doom today."

AveNoctum.com (9/10):
"This is a magnum opus and well worth the wait, Pantheist have created an album that needs to be experienced, listened to and consumed in every imaginable way. Enlightenment is just a click away."

Prog Magazine UK:
"Languorous epics like 'Control and Fire' are underpinned by the unmistakable, shattered-knee crawl of those doom riffs, but continual detours into more refined, elegiac realms make this an endlessly fascinating and heart-rending journey toward oblivion's embrace".

Teethofthedivine.com:
“It’s great to hear these guys return to the original sound...I for one, am glad one of the best bands in the genre in the early 00s come back so triumphantly”.

Thedoorwayto.blogspot.com:
"Pantheist is a stunning Avant Doom metal force that know how to make music to challenge and move the listener."

SoundscapeMagazine.com (9/10):
"Crushingly heavy, it will take your breath away and it’s one of those albums that will just get under your skin."

Metallized.it (84/100):
"Ma il nero dei Pantheist di questo Seeking Infinity non è mai un buio pesto sul cui trono sieda un’incontrastata disperazione, anzi, a conti fatti un ruolo di pari portata lo ricopre anche un senso di malinconia diffusa, da cui sgorgano diversi momenti di autentica estasi poetico/melodica, quasi che la contemplazione possa almeno per un attimo allontanarci dalle incalzanti miserie terrene."

Metaleyes.iyezine.com (8.8/10):
"Un grande ritorno, la lunga attesa non è stata vana"

Legacy.de (11/15):
"Seeking Infinity"verkörpert alles in allem die Essenz von Funeral Doom ohne Genrepuristen mit viel Experimente zu vergraulen"

Ragherrie.com (90/100):
"Pantheist weet binnen de lijntjes te kleuren, maar doet dat wel met uitdagende kleuren en een penseelgebruik als dat van Rembrandt. We hebben nog niet veel extreme doom gehad die ons kon bekoren dit jaar, maar Seeking Infinity is een schot in de roos."

Zwaremetalen.com (83/100):
"Seeking Infinity is een diepgewortelde doomboom met verschillende doomstronken, die reiken van aardse Lost Paradise tot astrale Tiamat, met een overtreffende traagheid die de tijd herdefinieert tot een zintuiglijke ervaring. Eén die je de zinloosheid van je dagelijkse leven even doet vergeten, door je actief in contact te brengen met het tempo, de muziek en teksten die gaan over hen die zich dezelfde vragen stelden en ervaringen opzochten."

NewNoise.pl (4.5/5):
"Pantheist nie przypomina mi nic co znałabym wcześniej. Zespół wykonuje funeral doom, ale czerpie z black metalu, rocka gotyckiego czy klasyki. Koncepcyjny album o duchowości, poszukiwaniu i strachu tworzy spójną całość. Ta muzyczna podróż zapiera dech w piersiach, a towarzysząca jej aura mistycyzmu nie zniknie tak od razu wraz z ostatnim utworem…"

Femforgacs.hu (9/10:
"Mélyen szántó anyag lévén sokszori nekifutást kér a Seeking Infinity a műfaj rajongóitól, a funeral doomot elkerülőknek viszont most sem jött el a "beugró" lemez ideje, mert nem ezzel a kiadvánnyal fognak közelebb kerülni ehhez a vonalhoz."
