about

Farewell, Doomed Planet! is about the apocalypse. And Chernobyl wolves. Pollution. And space travel. Existential dread. And whales. 

In a not-so-distant future...

Pollution and atomic warfare have turned Earth into one big exclusion zone ruled by mutant Chernobyl wolves.

A small number of humans (and an even smaller number of rapidly evolving sea creatures) have escaped and set out to establish new societies in parts unknown. But what they find in deep space may be worse than what they left behind.

"[Harm's] sole focus is Atmosphere with a capital A, one of utter coldness and desolation – the ethereal/melancholic vocals being a cherry on top of the proverbial cake." - I Heart Noise

Track Name: Harm
It wasn't a dream
The bright sun extinguished
Morning never came

Glaciers melted through our fingers
Cities submerged under oceans

We have done such harm
There's no way to salvage
This wandering star
We have done such harm

We have done such harm
We have done such harm
We have done such harm
We have done such harm
Track Name: Baleen Executioner
You hear the ice shelf breach and fragmentize
Do you lament misdeeds
Or did the vast expanse of stellar depths between our worlds
Decimate contrition for demolition

Baleen, they called us
Executioner
Feared by multitudes
We ruled the deep
Until you denatured all that we exalt
Forsaking us for planets still unspoiled
Track Name: Departure
This world, new world
Won't be my home
Here the windstorms inferno filled
The sirocco whorl endlessly
The atmosphere tenebrous
Astral flares radiant empyrean
How can I know if it is our love, or creation that's ending
