[Lyrics: D.L.] Gliding splinters wait on edge to pierce this central hull A ruler ticking against imaginary metrics The teeth of a comb getting anxious To ravage the central flesh A pair of burning eyes can’t see what’s transpiring behind Million unspoken words take their place at the podium Vomit out chain of thoughts [Lyrics: D.L./Metal Archives] A bee, CIRCM free International me Project comprised of see Veral Metal Archives Members from three continents Complete discography Coveting lives, demos, me Remnants of crumbling empire reviews Added by Metantoine The challenge Is currently running from today [Lyrics: D.L.] I walk on paths on rapid rivers white Cradled by hills enrapturing my sight All of my treasures, you have never seen Your eyes fixated on white in rolling green [Lyrics: Mike Henn] The Thousand Curses of Izanami Call the encroaching shroud of death The vermillion hellscape, the narcotic skyline Pierced by the Myriad Truths [Lyrics: D.L.] De only pleasure known as bof we own De dawn 2 dusk we shown sunlight shone De sea 2 shinin sea across we land Mi land, ya land, in few ways dem same In reverence of high noon mi eyes catch flight Reflected on de orb stealin mi sight Mi vision a ticket fi passage west Where noon no show fi nudda hour at best Mi always missin ya by de mountaintime Ya revel in oak wen all mi know is dem wine Just one hour back and mi a here 2 stay Mi no gonna turn mi blind eyes away Mi walk on path on rapid rivers white Cradled by dem hills enrapturin mi sight All of dem treasures ye never seen Ya eyes fixated on rollin green [Lyrics: Alf] It’s me, Frankie Benson! A door-to-door salesman who sells Tupperware! Frankie Benson? Is it with a “Y” or is it with an “IE” at the end? I would have killed you, I would have killed you just for that, Mr. Benson, but we already said too much
[Lyrics: D.L.] Vyhýbám se sladkosti v hloupé víře, že z toho vznikne strpění hrůz života – takhle to dělá každý na celém světě Ale naše falešné jedy a zdánlivé utrpení Nás nikdy nepřipraví na strašně skutečnou hrozbu, Která nás čeká za rohy smrtelné existence Zná dobře trpkost, Ta však existuje ve sféře mimo chuťových pohárků My lidé ji známe jako smrt, Živá vědomost mrtvé nevědomosti Nejhořčejší pravda ze všech [Lyrics: Metal Archives] I tried adding PTH and I would consider them a metal band (although not purely heavy metal), and found they were on the black list? Why is this? It seems unreasonable to me that a band of this caliber would be left off this site. Looking for fast, noisy and above all RIFFY death metal in the vein of Degial, Vorum's "Current Mouth" EP and/or Obliteration's... [Lyrics: Alexandre Ferland] Hat prices are at an all time low Grandmothers no longer exist Sodomy's free with every sandwich trio Conversation considered retro Shifty-eyed slugs wearing human skin want our bones Old school parasites went extinct Now they feed on bellyfuls of stress The dogs bark in street slang The kids are all sizzling on the sidewalk No one speaks to each other anymore Except the man who shouted into my face He said it was the apocalypse
[Lyrics: Andrés Felipe Murillo/D.L.] The crimson twilit skyline signs a final queen A myth is hidden, for a thousand years unseen It's a fatal abjection, and from bloodlines unheard Comes a lightning projection across the reign Kingdom without hope Kingdom without life An ancient power struggle silenced by dividing hands Erased from local lore, so deep beneath the sands [Lyrics: Nathan Ferrerira] The true nature of good changes like a clock Contorted and morphed with a tick and tock So you may see a stream and call it paradise But you’ll never step into that same river twice If you claim to know all that there is then you’re wrong ‘Cause we see all of the notes never hearing the song Each opinion merely fragments of a whole With no beginning or end just lack of control And I missed demonstrations on how to live life Live in absolutisms produced by few minds Who have lived and thought and were great for their time But the problems they faced are not problems of mine [Lyrics: D.L.] The mountains bow and the oceans boil Idols’ monuments sink into soil The ash of dissidents blots out the sun Heralding the return of the old one Polytheism catches flame An effigy’s torched and hollowed frame Its creed reverts to bone One deity alone
[Lyrics: Antoine Richard] RIM RIM RIM [Lyrics: "Love Sonnet XVII" by Pablo Neruda] I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz, or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off. I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities [Lyrics: D.L.] Misanthrope [Lyrics: "Kytice" by Karel Jaromír Erben] Zemřela matka a do hrobu dána, siroty po ní zůstaly; I přicházely každičkého rána A matičku svou hledaly I zželelo se matce milých dítek; duše její se vrátila A vtělila se v drobnolistí kvítek, jím mohylu svou pokryla


The Outer RIM is the cumulative creative output of an online collective of about 50 individuals. Many are musicians, and all are friends who have been in close contact since approximately 2010.

The first release, Uatism, features direct musical input from 14 members. Each member composed musical sections independently of each other with no internal collusion, then submitted them to the orchestrator of the project, Andrés Felipe Murillo. Andrés arranged these individual sections into discrete songs, adding his own sections for cohesion. Each song was completed before a new one was started; "Beliefs Turn to Bone" was the first piece completed in 2015, followed by "Tower of Babel", "Death in Two Tongues" and finally "Reincarnation". "Funeral Skrill" is an older piece by Jackson Black which was remixed for this release.
