Reach for the Dead: At 03:30 the fleeting sound of a ghostly apparition makes for a chilling moment. Then it morphs into a descending choppy effect that I just can't quite describe but keep repeating even weeks after the release.

White Cyclosa: 00:38 sees the start of the main melody - only a few seconds later do we grasp the utter despair and futility that it's signalling. It's a forlorn and achingly sad motif.

Come to Dust: From 02:19 the choral pad comes sliding in and the track becomes elevated to something that sounds haunting and epic.

There are too many, but one particular stand out is the last 2 minutes of New Seeds from when the 'happy melody' comes in to the RSD jingles. It's just beautiful.

But then again, the whole album is.

So many, but I'll give you three that 'collaborate' to terrify me.

Gemini: 0:38 , ~1:07 , ~1:58

At each timepoint, a new genuinely frightening/eerie sound is introduced. In the run up to 1:58 it feels like I'm finally getting some respite, but no... These guys do layering incredibly, and they've layered fear and apprehension on to me with this track with those three sounds.

Genuinely raises my heart rate.

Arpeggio on the trail out of Split Your Infinities

Bass Drops on Cold Earth (antique AR speakers are 100% to blame)

The entire length of Telepath

I know! I'm always like "d'awwww" at that part. It's nice that there's at least one voice on the album that's not super creepy (I do love the creepy voices, don't get me wrong, I just love when they do cute stuff).
All of old. Nothing else ever. Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

Split Your Infinites --- bruuuuuuuuuuuuh the inception part?!?!?!?!?!!! :shock: :!:

Transmissiones Ferox --- When I listen to this one, it's akin to the sun rising to the highest point at the sky, and being rendered so disabled to the point you can do nothing but look back.

Telepath --- Goosebumps always ride my body up and down whenever the 'five' and the chords finally merge.

I commented on this thread right when TH came out in 2013 with my first account that I lost access to, but 10 years later I have different answers for the top 3 standout moments.

1. The beautiful little melody at the very end of Transmisiones Feroxi

2. The psychedelic layered voice samples at the end of Sick Times

3. The key change in the middle of New Seeds

Semena Merkvyth, the reveal from the Cosecha Transmisiones, it was a huge huge hit for Me because I can listen to such stuff for the rest of My life and just bask in the glory of its deepening revelation!

Cold Earth, this piece is a monster, with the progression and final unification that completely paves over everything else, while the album is subtle and evolving, Cold Earth is a massive anthem piece that stands out.

Gemini, this reeks of Music is Math on so many evocative levels, the sweet start with tension followed by the unsettling feeling of something brewing that is utterly dark and nefarious, a sweet dream of utopia turning to dystopia and mechanization.

To Me, that's My top 3
Molest me not with this pocket calculator stuff.

Yup, this is basically my list, particularly the first three.

I also love how the "six" lands after "fiiiiive" on Telepath. It feels like a snap back to reality.
