about

Antre is born from - and exists - in the place we all retreat to in moments of despair. The lyrical concepts explored on Void draw from stories and narratives that evoke feelings of internal human darkness and destruction. Those claustrophobic thought patterns are punctuated by moments of clear reflection, expressed in the stripped back, acoustic tracks.

Track Name: Suffer the Light
Light of the cross burning bright in the frost
I see the smoke in plumes
A pyre burns for false Gods amongst the stench of burning fumes
All scriptures of the past were wiped out now we'll scorch your books
Unite you all in fire for history you took

Crucify thyselves
Embrace the pain of Hell

Clawing at walls of flame, climbing in vain
Malice breeds malice all the same
Genocide glorified, as the old ones died
Now screaming choirs burn inside

Adorn black crown of thorns
Feel our scorn

Follow your false messiah
Into a tomb of fire
Follow your false messiah
Into the dead empire

Crucify thyselves
Embrace the pain
Embrace the flame

Suffer in this life
And forever more
Track Name: Fear the Old Blood
In search of greater sight
we encounter celestial beings
From their blood to ours
We may have new beginnings
From their many eyes
We see new possibility
Now our tainted lives
Embrace the chaotic divinity

Abhorrent deformity
Anabolic enormity
Poisoned cure mutates
Retaliate and incinerate
Purge the streets of disease
Putrid stench of the beasts
Vulgar form of man
Obey the church's command

A church of healing and of hunting
Remove the tumours from the newly cleansed wound
Seek out and remove this malignancy
The night is upon us, old blood consumes
Apply flame to the tool
Deadly game of the cruel
Inner beast immerging
Sinner bleeds the servant

Cheating death will come with a fatal price
You know not what you meddle with
This betrayal will be our undoing
Take heed of my words
Fear the old blood

The essence of blood strengthens us
Awakened beasthood maddens us
Their knowledge illuminates the cosmos
Newly savage, praise them and become the host

Esoteric mantras unearthed
Carved into tablets of stone
These words beyond mortal man
Invoking the unknown

Anabolic enormity
Poisoned cure mutates
Retaliate and incinerate
Purge the streets of disease
Putrid stench of the beasts
Vulgar form of man
Obey the church's command

Fear the old blood
Track Name: Into Oblivion
False hope guides the masses to the grave
Behold these scriptures written to enslave
Selfish shepherds offer a path
Soul will be saved from the bloodbath
Believe or be damned, no mercy for heresy
Any question considered blasphemy
Words proclaimed by divinity
This lie portrayed spreading like malignancy

Into the void

Time decays, as does hope
The lie so clear in my eyes
Wasted days, burning life
Repeat until the end is nigh
Do you hear them call from the otherside?
Do you fear their silence amplified
Confirming the brutal truth
Your prayers have been denied
Masquerade in the light
The tunnel leads to the abyss
Your heavens fade into the night
Death is the return to nothingness

Make you take your final trip
And cling to it for dear life
As it will be your last

The deception that we are beings spiritual
Wondering the realm of the physical
If this flesh vessel is the vehicle
Release my hands and let death take the wheel

Nothing after death

Do you hear them call from the otherside?
Do you fear their silence amplified
Confirming the brutal truth
Your prayers have been denied
Masquerade in the light
The tunnel leads to the abyss
Your heavens fade into the night
Death is the return to nothingness

Salvation and damnation one in the same
Embrace the final destination
Entombed or through flame

Experience the final dream
to summarize your demise
Years of failed prayers
Conclude in despair

The inevitable inescapable
Incapable of avoiding death

Spirit subsides sinking slowing, silently, as cerebral cessation sets in
Cells atrophy, dying anatomy
Soul expires within
Track Name: Tyrant
Rape the land with fire and axe
Decapitate and pile in stacks
Forging steel, carving stone
Devouring down to the bone
Manipulate, enslave
Desire for the grave
Birth of death manifested
Gaia molested
The stars decay beyond a dead sky
Discoloured seas mutate and die
Burning, weeping, churning

Instigate the apocalypse

Burning winds of Winter
Torched mushrooms of fire
New gardens ablaze
Serve elemental kin

We lived amongst you
Now we tower above you
Floral and fauna bound in chains.
Malnourished and emaciated
Your dying breath is our dying breath.
Embrace our gluttony
Over powered by this malice.
Only the elements will avenge you
Track Name: Guided by Nightmares
Seen through closed eyes in the dead of night
Screams of terror from an unknown fright
Dreams of elder ones preaching suffering
Scenes depicting humanities demise
Revel in the slaughter
Heathens praising torture
Tribes in chorus preach his name
From a submerged tomb he will rise

Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R' lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn

R'lyeh Arise
Carve his face upon a nightmare sculpture
R'lyeh Arise
Blasphemy of your Nazerene saviour
R'lyeh Arise
Resurrected from a submerge tomb
R'lyeh Arise
Emerging forth to bring mankind's doom

Artist and madmen craving suicide
Blasphemy and heresy, false Gods defied
Aquatic dragon speaks to thee
Cyclopean masonary, neo genocide
Revel in the slaughter
Heathens praising torture
Tribes in chorus preach his name
From a submerged tomb he will rise

R'lyeh Arise
Carve his face upon a nightmare sculpture
R'lyeh Arise
Blasphemy of your Nazerene saviour
R'lyeh Arise
Resurrected from a submerge tomb
R'lyeh Arise
Emerging forth to bring mankind's doom

Gateway through insanity
Paint me a mural of disdain
Isolated with him
Visions of pain

R'lyeh arise
Emerging forth to bring mankind's doom
Track Name: Infinite Abyss
Spoken without words, open this gateway where I shall gaze
Unto this realm and learn their corrupted ways ways
I glare through this window with horror and wonder,
My grasp of reality turn asunder
Toying with visions I should not see,
Beings no imagination could conjure


Remove myself from social contact
Through solitude I hone my skills
Manipulating the fabrics of time and space
Bleeding through nightmares of the void

Cast me into the gaping chasm
Slit open as the bow ebbs and flows

Architectural disfigurement
Tampering existence
Opening the womb
Reborn beyond these walls

Those glassy eyes of death gaze into the abyss and back again
Now one with life and death I phase into the void

Erich Zann

Now nothing more than night's creation
Now nothing more than a vague recollection
So distant from humanity
So distant from your sanity

Cast me into the gaping chasm
Slit open as the bow ebbs and flows
Track Name: Beyond These Skies
In the darkest night, I'm immersed in colour
The waking hours seem so vulgar
Reaching out beyond this dimension
Releasing doubt and experience the ascension
No longer suffering this flesh prison
A stronger being with greater vision
Pity those shackled to the ground
Cities enslaved, never to be found
I've met with lifeforms scattered across the cosmos
Conversed without words, new consciousness exposed


Stalked by a nightmare
Caught in it's death stare
We delved far too deep, these chasm walls are far too steep
Weakened, emaciated, broken and violated

I see you watching
Astro projection space exploration

Stalked by a nightmare
Caught in it's death stare
We delved far too deep, these casm walls are far too steep
Weakened, emaciated, broken and violated

Reach out your mind
Nightmare affliction
Gateways unchained
Frightful dimensions
Madness ingrained

Power granted
Choir chanting
Doar existence
Failed resistance

The burning bush speaks the word of God

Power granted
Choir chanting
Dour existence
Failed resistance

Exchange flesh for stone
Take flight into the unknown
Burning bright in the sky
Burning night, one will die

Cling to these waking hours
Fleeting as the night devours
Faltering grip on humanity in vain
Malevolence beyond restrain

Sleep deprivation
Anatomical disintegration
Frail bodies cling to life
Fear the ever watching sky
Solitude avoided
Time and space distorted

Stalked by a nightmare
Caught in it's death stare
We delved far too deep, these casm walls are far too steep
Weakened, emaciated, broken and violated

The end is nigh
This mortal life diminished
Claimed by immortal hate
Mortality finished
