Track One 04:40
wish me luck, wish me luckier than the luck itself i have traveled far to the edge of distance guided by divine hands through all these sufferings many walls have been broken, many have yet to be with both feet on the ground my wish will never expire clinging on the urge to stay on track and keep moving the core of life is not about how we end an episode but on how we dare to begin another after another wish me luck, wish me luckier than the luck itself so many plans to do in such comfortless time-frame as change is the only constant in life on earth stagnation never takes its course within oneself praying at the crossroads, hoping things would go well ahead of us lies a different standard of meaning adding concrete facets to the once so-called oddity time will tell should things function or vice versa
finding truth in lies reading between the lines see through deceptions sense through periphery an intrinsic macrocosm essential and constitutive entirely in totality gestalt principles of matter perception a multitude of perceptive decay reasons interact within acceptance built into somatic habit and regularity unquestionable yet undecidable
one definite progress meter, built up by the burden of strain uncyclical form of infinity, eternal journey to the yet unknown nothing is so complicated, when it's done it's done a sentence cannot describe the will to keep moving on i just take this strange continuum leaving all my peers bemused and clueless have i changed, have i gone insane? even past is haunting me i have no time to turn around as mysterious as the universe itself my reveal is also my secrecy everything is relative to the other issues that will never ever be solved at the end of the day we would realize we can never expand our time in space
Tabula Rasa 05:06
beyond the mental image of a man lies a blueprint made by god i am standing here recalling to all the roads we have passed through always hard to understand always hard to comprehend yet it's always easy to believe we are not here for no reason so many mistakes and failures so many elements of imperfection formed by our sense of free will causing sadness that never disappear when life has broken into pieces we realize everything has gone so wrong beyond man's own nervous breakdown lies a blueprint made by god ...and here i am standing on a line between reconstruction and destruction
utilize proper logics through modal thinking a root of analytical dialectics philosophize, ratiocinate all nonsense until my mind simulates pandemonium morale, rationale, came off unforeseen idleness in the way we generate conjecture downsizing expectations to the bitter end feeling trapped within this segmental aperture see the whole world revolving around me while i found myself in a stationary struggle only to collapse without one single movement as visions expanded beyond mental capacity die down in personal responsibility and i'm looking forward to it
The Regulars 02:24
welcome to the world of endless transformation a universe of continual permutation having no mark of culmination kekal in its primordial signification seeking justice through resolutions an outbreak from the years of stagnation mankind is an empty space - a floating void waiting to get materialized and vectorized take eight as a sign of infinity this gate is a portal of liberty and i'm taking you with me, baby let the dead bury the dead your progressive journey begins here through the alleys of pain with me
setelah semua tipu benci dan sakit hati...
Let Us Blend 05:22
us in the state of constant change conservatism has lost its meaning left behind, all lies and deceit us in a carrier, driven one way forward. purity's an illusion, life has its proof to one's heart's content, openness upsurged sustain singularity within set patterns let us blend! together we stand as a fusion of styles the magic of colors, alluring dynamics where differences made new pathways let us blend! shall we attain hybrid sophistication piercing right into the core of being our character shall be preserved even in an absence of homogeneity
Open World 03:57
and i face my own real self, broken in an open world my heart beats a groove of grief bleeding to god in a path of pain rhythms of anguish and desolation move me into mournful consciousness while i still believe in a better tomorrow anxiety is on its way to consume and i face my own real self, wounded in an open world my eyes stare into one black hole seeing stationary state of affairs a tragic life with unused obsessions forming a torrential malevolence while i'm still heading towards a light ahead apprehension is on its way to devour but i am grateful knowing that i'm alive and i am grateful to be here...


8th full-length studio album from Kekal. Released in 2010.

Album Description

"8", the eight full-length album from Kekal is a collection of thoughts and emotions blended together into a unique yet bold statement. Each song displays its character as a balance between electronic and organic elements, rhythm and melody, aggression and atmosphere, simplicity and complexity, beauty and the beast.

By incorporating both traditional and non-traditional approaches to production and a wide range of musical instruments such as electric & acoustic guitars, drums, samples from field-recordings, theremin, analog synths, vocals, vocoder, TR-808, and even a 'controversial' vuvuzela sample, Kekal redefines the term 'experimental' in its true sense, but yet listeners will find the entire album accessible and digestible.

Kekal may also be the first band in the world who released a new studio album without any official band member. All original members left the band in 2009, but they continue to supply their artistic outputs such as music and artwork for Kekal (albeit not as official members).

Released on CD by Whirlwind Records (Germany)


released December 31, 2010

All samplings and field-recordings were done at various places, both public and private, using a portable digital recorder. All vocals, guitars and other 'supposedly organic' musical instruments were performed and recorded by Jeff Arwadi, except "Departure Gate 8" and "Heartache Memorial" by Jeff Arwadi and Leo Setiawan.

Assembled, programmed, contemplated, manipulated, arranged, mixed and mastered by Jeff Arwadi throughout the winter months of 2009 and 2010 at Northern Isolation Station, Calgary - Canada. Produced by Jeff Arwadi.
