“The True Shape Of Eskatos”, is an attempt to combine obsessions, rituals, prophecies, dreams, erotism in music. We've followed our constant inspirations, such as antique and contemporary history, dreams, nightmares, sex, love, death, afterlife. All seen with the point of view of the times we are living, times where, despite of the large use of many forms of technology, the old fears about the unknown and the end of the world are still crawling among us. Therein you can find some tracks inspired by “Resurrection”, a Manuel Vicari’ s idea for a fantasy romance, never released, but put in music by us.
We tried to mantain a sound that respects the warmth and the purity of the analogic profile, improving it miles away compared to our first album White Wings Of Nightmares.

Basically this album is just a new step to reach the union of funeral doom, doom metal, death metal and 80's new wave.

Plateau Sigma is a musical project born in the 'autumn of 2010, driven by one simple ambition: to unite the verb of primordial death and doom metal to the rarefied and sensual atmospheres of new wave of dark rock.

Track Name: Satyriasis And The Autumn Ends
Celebration of sorrow, sorrow pleasure and pride,
celebration of victory of dark through light
celebration of Ishtar, licking sorceress’ new skin
all your litanies echoing,
to preserve the shaped heart child
Drink the syrup of my ancestors, seal the bond.
litanies of pleasure echoing
through the soul of night
I surrend to your will, I surrend to my will
veil of sins are broken by the godskinned arms
flesh bone and soul, you had to fed
sweat forms prisms and pleasure awakes.
Stays in adoration until the dawn comes
I breathe your breathe my Aphrodite
Your will is done.
Chant to us the song of eternal night, sing to us
to get oblivion with human eyes.
Track Name: Stalingrad
I was a soldier sent to Stalingrad
a walking shadow through debris corpses and glasses
I was a soldier sent to Stalingrad
Proserpine’s lips has put her mark
Soul shakes, dance of the mortal mist
God of death’s tears, flowing deep
hands are stained by the blood’s beast
bullets, other nails of Jesus wrists
cold is violent, guides us to sleep
sleeping valley with no dreams
Ghosts can’t see the sun of men
and we marched like ’em on this fallen land
cold shrouds, seen through eyes of old dying men,
emptiest sky received the machine gun’s prayer.

We are knights of purifier fire
we sheer the apocalypse
we only need more pyres
we deliver mother death.
let’s march, eating snow and terror
weapons in our shoulders, messengers of sorrow
red star, red flag, red star, ‘til the days of fire
weapons in our right hand,
‘til the judgement day comes

It’s for the smile of a child that we die?
it’s for that flag that we wanted high in this stranger sky?
if you believe to trade the blood for the ground
death always wins with his dice
the cannons sing and the snow trembles
and once again eternal night
Track Name: The River 1917 (Feat Efthimis Karadimas)
Circus of flesh, souls at the slaughterhouse
epic tribute to our fathers?
No, just an orgy of blood and flesh
There’s a sort of lust in war
weird erotism the iron calls
the barrel’s rifle ejaculates the new eternal life
the enemy’s blood, the enemy’s wine excites us, invite us
at the banquet of flesh
the flying lead is my seed, I’ll pass you my heritage
let’s eat with taste this ground,
let’s dig that damned hole
soldier…that’s your final womb

The river of blood

Ares procreates new wombs
new fetus born in the trenches
we are all becoming food for the Gods
new adepts are joining the bayonet’s baptism.
Sleep together, sleep forever,
in death is the final embrace
the enemy won’t pass the river
body’s gone, but spirit will stay.
Forget the plans of God
we are the witness of his drunkness
and for Jupiter’s sake
one thing is certain
we’ll become marmor and dust
Track Name: Angst
I saw she faded away, it’s not reality turned to dream
shadows is wearing other shadows
chants starts from underneath.
I saw she faded away,
strange “silhouette” of flesh and fears
it’s been a rose painted on the wall
by hands made of light and dust.
We’re all made of light and dust
even ghosts, flowers and stars,
the prison is not the body, the prison is the soul.
We’re all made of light and dust
even ghosts, flowers and stars.
In these four walls I stay, where every scream remains silent.
Glad to see your entrance still welcoming us tonight
glad to see your columns never wasted
glad to be here and walk this glorious surface
in fear of light, darkness coming.
Pray to get a bit of sunset’s light

Whispers are surrounding me,
they haunt me in my dreams
I don’t want to be here with her ghost tonight
Track Name: Amber Eyes
The sunset sun shines, in your eyes,
and the dawn will rise, in your eyes
and the moon will come from your eyes
and my spirit sinks in amber eyes
to the fields of gold, into amber eyes
at the fields of wheat in your eyes
and my free last sighs in your eyes
and Cupido’s flight in your eyes
