about

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
- Arthur C. Clarke

"I'm fascinated by the deaths of stars and the havoc they wreak on their environments."
- Neil deGrasse Tyson

A genre mash-up of science fiction and fantasy, and a cautionary tale of the dangers of directing a nation's greatest intellectual resources toward the machinery of warfare. When the war is won on the achievements of the brilliant weapon-maker, what role can such a mind play in peacetime? Novamancer is the tale of one such martial genius, abandoned and imprisoned (temporarily) by those he once served. Lost, betrayed, driven mad, yet still possessing a deadly intellect and instinct for destruction.

lyrics

Studies in secret, the arcane device
Cast from the walls in disgrace
Knowledge forbidden, my craft undermined
Now you believe you are safe
Freed from my prison, the earthly design
I am the weapon you fear
Now I have mastered the hideous way
Final extinction is here

Tear the sun down from the sky
Novamantic omnicide

Diseased incantations, the space-time collapse
Rupturing the quantum foam
Superstring severed, the particle flux
Now bend to my will alone
Seed of destruction is planted at last
Now I shall have my revenge
The ultimate act, the final release
All things must come to an end

Tear the sun down from the sky
Novamantic omnicide

Novamancer, stellarvore
Driven mad by hate
Nowhere for you to run
When the heavens detonate
Write my rage across the sky
Before infinity
Novamancer, stellarvore
What I was born to be

Tables turned, the bones are cast
Master and the slave
Obliterate the cursed orb
Radiation wave
Gamma blast of stellar death
Sterilizing space
Now the world shall feel my wrath
Not one of you is safe

Novamancer, stellarvore
Driven mad by hate
Nowhere for you to run
When the heavens detonate
Write my rage across the sky
Before infinity
Novamancer, stellarvore
What I was born to be

Novamancer, stellarvore
Novamancer, stellarvore
Novamancer, stellarvore
What I was born to be
