The Zenith Passage Posts “Holographic Principle II: Convergence” Lyric Video

“Solipsist” is the debut full-length from Los Angeles death metal collective The Zenith Passage, set for release on April 15th via Unique Leader Records.

The forty-minute “Solipsist” examines the idea of solipsism, a philosophical theory that the self is all that can be known to exist, and anything else outside of one’s own mind is uncertain.

The Zenith Passage, which features within its ranks current and former members of The Faceless, Fallujah and All Shall Perish, builds upon this foundation, expanding into themes of nonexistence and a computer-generated fictional reality experienced by all of humanity.

In advance of its release, today the album’s second track “Holographic Principle II: Convergence” comes online in the form of a lyric video. Check it out below, courtesy of MetalInjection.net Elaborates lead guitarist / backing vocalist Justin McKinney of the tune:

“Recent studies suggest that our universe may only appear to be three dimensional and is, in fact, a two dimensional projection of a parallel universe – like a hologram in the unseen ‘real’ universe. ‘Holographic Principle II: Convergence’ mirrors the chaotic state of a destabilized mind awakening to realities much stranger than we could have imagined. The composition has a multifaceted, sporadic essence. While remaining true to our death metal roots, we pushed this piece’s edges into other territory, entwining the aggressive technical foundation with spatters of jazz fusion and classical symphony. We hope you’ll lose yourself as you take your first look into ‘Solipsist.'”

The album’s full track listing is as follows:

1. Holographic Principle I: Emergence
2. Holographic Principle II: Convergence
3. Simulated Reality
4. Deus Deceptor
5. The Dissension Consensus
6. Dreamsphere
7. Hypnagogia
8. Metaphysical Solipsism
9. The Tenebrous Veil
10. Luminary Singularity
