wayne-the-devil Very intriguing album. Almost plays like a Blackened Death Metal template packed with fairly original twists and turns. Very strong song writing dynamics thru out the album. Pretty damn good first album I think!!! Highly recommended. Definitely a band to watch out for.... Favorite track: Additives, Sedatives, Bandages.

Track Name: On the Backs of Horses
Possession obsession religious connection
Narcissist pharmacist trying to harness it
Manakin mandible urges the cannibal
Fleeting retreating remorse is for god

Admission remission a slave to the system
Pessimist's estimates based on the testament
Hornets who scorn it embrace then porn shit
Seeding the bleeding with quaaludes and meth

You crash and burn, inferno, deserving
On the backs of horses, inferno, no quarter
You crash and burn, inferno, unearthing

Morgue, doors, open, open
Outbursts, spoken, invoking

Possession obsession religious connection
Vatican manakin caught in the act again
Rape exorcismo thrown in the priest hole
Kicking and screaming remorse is for no one

You crash and burn on the backs of horses
Track Name: Additives, Sedatives, Bandages
A tumbleweed, only sight thus far
A challenge of faith, a challenge of faith

Cursed of course with your group of co-conspirators, madness plays the victim that with indecision
You drive the hearse with your group of co-conspirators, save it for tomorrow bitter horror sorrow
Pain dispersed through your group of co-conspirators sharing in the slaughter 20/20 vision
Cursed of course with your group of co-conspirators, with your group of co-conspirators

Aggressively, and with no regard
A bladder of waste, a matter of taste

Additives, sedatives, bandages...repeat x4

A two hand grip, and your throat constricts
A survival revival, in a snake less pit
Survival, revival
Track Name: Appalling
Force it force it appalling
Warden burden appalling

Reason, reason abort it
Pleasing, pleasing escort it

Lucky, deadly excuses, muddy bloody deep bruises

Manic, uproar, fanatic, fanatic
Wrenching, loner, the latest, sadist

Force it in, force it in, force it in...repeat x4
Growing older is contagious, whoring soldiers march in places
Putting all their pimps in cages
Look up to the sky

Force it force it appalling
Warden, burden appalling
Urges, surges, appalling
Urgent, surgeon, appalling
Track Name: Secrets of the Adept
Stalactites, the last rites, odd being, slow creeping
The Master, The Old Ones, ice hidden, no feeling
Foreboding coordinates, caverns, cadavers, the followers
The No Ones, twice killing, good ridden
The depths of the buried, arctic electric, sub-dwellers
beaten path, old wisdom, frost bitten
The astral glass blown, resting for distance, the unknown
The well-known, festering the imp glow

Outer-body for aeons, achieving reincarnate
precise in action, secrets of the adept
Adorning neophytes, against the power of light
the threshold of madness, secrets of the adept
Charged manifestations, seeming catatonic
spell preservation, secrets of the adept
Spanning lifetimes, sucking knowledge,
coven building, secrets of the adept

Stalactites, the last rites, odd being, slow creeping
The Master, The Old Ones, ice hidden, no feeling
Foreboding coordinates, caverns, cadavers, the followers
The No Ones, twice killing, good ridden
The depths of the buried, arctic electric, sub-dwellers
beaten path, old wisdom, frost bitten
The winter colossus, a power criminal
the mountains, a black mess, lochness dissenter
Track Name: Deep Dead
It comes in waves, radiation waves
liver and spleen, sardonic war
relish in duress, forevermore

Maggots love to feel you up
Summon them to dig you up

Decay, undertaker, vibrations, deep dead

Maggots love to feel you up
Summon them to dig you up

Deranged, meet your maker, incantations, deep dead

You can't escape
below ground quake
quiver and scream a little more
utterly repulsed by all the gore

Maggots love to feel you up
Summon them to dig you up

Lightning, blow torch, cremation, deep dead

A restless bitch who dug the ditch
I'll burn your head
you can't eat a witch
Raise up your dead,
I'll burn your head
my world is gone
the king of fucking dread

Decay, undertaker, vibrations, deep dead
Track Name: Play it Backwards/Lord of the Cemetery/The Familiars
Lord of the Cemetery

Gaining in speed to the precipice
learning from mistakes of jesuits
3rd degree burns from the freedom fire
Blinding, reaper, blade, no rest
Copious discharge of ridicule
emotionless business they call the cruel
warnings from beings unintelligible
Flesh crows, eating deeper, you're gone

The Familiars

Shape shifting, unrelenting
Spread a virus through the pious
Offer up a new realm of living
Instigate and penetrate the sanctity of family, win patiently
manipulating skill of the familiars
The encrypted lines of sinning, the boundaries of blashemy
In the forest, can't ignore us
See the traces laid to waste by,
the one leader, The Familiars
Track Name: Forlorn Metropolis
Pentacle of genitals, underneath the coral reef
Cunning and conniving, stunning and arriving
Wreckage is insisted, brutal and simplistic
have to make a living, legends are arising

Hostage, skinned alive, shark
Monstrous, carnivore, shark

Flesh scent attack, whipped around to the back
blood up to the surface, did you meet your purpose
nothing is the grander, cannot keep a handle
better grant your wishes, legends are arising

Hostage, skinned alive, shark
Monstrous, carnivore, shark

Don't even speak of it, lay down and reek of it
Don't take my eyes, Don't take my eyes
Don't even speak of it...lust...

Abuse and neglect, an all-out assault
Acute and erect, amuse the occult
A recluse hybrid, in dominance of horizon,
obtuse and elicit, Leviathan
Track Name: Satan's Shaman
No one, narcotic, rotted,
Even when you lost it, caustic
All striped and spotted
even when you've found, so periodic

Satan's Shaman

All hell is dripping, gripping
endured the wildest, childish
coldest heart is ripping
even when you've found it, all out neurotic

Your psychosis exposes, the ill-effects of doses
contradiction, addiction, is a company mission

Satan's Shaman
