Sludgelord: "This is the next best thing to a legal high. Take my word for it. You're going to love it."

Astral Doom: " potential to emerge as one of the finer exports of British Doom"

Paranoid Music Blog: "March the Desert proves they are game to toss their collective hat in among the legends on title cut "Waves on the Moon", a song which may go down as one of the ten "most" psychedelic songs I've ever heard."

Paranoid Music Blog: "Tabula Rasa" finally answers that age old question: What would Jimi Hendrix sound like if he played doom metal riffs through Blue Cheer's gear? As three song EP's go, they don't come much tighter than this."

Track Name: Frown Curve
The tragic open sea, the swarm in front of me.
The tempest strikes fear, the hole appears & takes the wreckage down.

Forgotten how to find you.
How the time’s flown by.
Forgotten what it means to see from eye to eye.
The sun shines down on what we have done, what we’ve become.

Feel the need, the show goes on, greed decreed, & no one has won.

It’s always the same, this cold flame.
Drives me insane, your burnt horizons, vulgar tongue, you’re six feet under, you’re forgotten.

I’ll soar through the sky, clouds pass me by.
Hue and cry, this ship is burning, the vibrant glow, the lines are blurring, forget tomorrow..

Forget your lies, your narcissist guise, your tie matches your shoes.
Track Name: Waves on the Moon
Avoid the past, journey to distant stars, without poll humanities are recast.

Waves on the moon, forget what you assume, there’s waves on the moon.

Ewe choked by terra brand, I am not what I am, And what I am is no man’s land.

Ewe in space, I’ll make this place my home, I am not what I am; The shadow takes its throne.
Stars to chase, without force we can grow, I removed the wooden boundaries, and now I’m a temple of stone.

Sacred view; eclipsed spirit, it drains you.
Crack the skull, This mind imprisons Ewe.
Count the sheep, dream of what is true.
Track Name: Tabula Rasa
The covetous spectre guides him to unpleasant pastures new.

The man who shines,
The man we dressed in white.
The man who’s bounty shades mass plight.

They seed infertile soil, to feed the gluttonous squares.
Your bounty applauds their constant musical chairs.
They press play, & their shadows stare at the shares.

Trite across the boarders, gaunt products sold on tv.
Suited marauder behind her; his whispers anoints her front covers.
Watch their lives ignore your own let them hold thy kingdoms throne.

Your mouths feed, his eyes stir & taunts further dimwit with promised smash hit.
