Sentient is our death metal soundtrack to the dark corners of sci-fi, where a three meter tall metal creature free of the confines of time impales humans on the tree of pain, and a single minded inmortal organism seeks to eradicate all competition to the finite resources of the galaxy. Only death lurks in the cold void of space.
