Chris Krupa Saw them last night in Toronto, and am still recovering from the brutal pummeling brilliance of it all. A masterpiece.

Matt Shutup Heard his band a few years ago but somehow managed to neglect. Saw them in Vancouver the other night (sorry the crowd is so lame around here guys) and they blew my tits off. Sessioning the hell out of this album now.

Brian Hurt The impossible step up from "Songs of Descent" - an envelope-pusher. Favorite track: crumbling.

Hank It's more Yautja, nuff said. I swear these guys are the most slept on metal band at the moment. See them live! They're monsters! Favorite track: breed regret.

Track Name: breed regret
Blind by faith
you dictate
Someone's fate
shaped by hate
Not your voice
not your choice
Value life
shun the knife
Prove to me
You're alive
Rip you out
Can't survive
Cursed - to bring life to this
Earth - filled with soulless eyes
Worth - less than stone and dirt
Work - to care and provide
You think you saved a life?
Breed regret
Kill your young?
No problem
Innocence overseas
If we could see
what they could be
could cure disease
In reality
the ones you breed
liars and thieves
Track Name: thankful; appalled
despise my thoughts when i awake
in discontent nothing is safe
each step an earthquake
bitter towards the blade of grass
each sound an explosion
jealous of the sand and ash
solace found in slumber
frantically trying to sleep
at least i've found myself
thankful; appalled
Track Name: of lament
with a mouthful of crow, tell me more
lay it on thick with that "new sound"
have the time to tell it again?
so callous as a friend
never ceases to amaze and disgust
revel in the moment, writhe in the year
shed the skin, born anew
stumble into sounds of lament
scavenge, plunder, pretend
so callous as a friend
with eyes of green and forked tongue
who have you become?
though pained, my regrets are few
in vain, my trust in you
Track Name: for naught
every thought so convincing
that I'm going to fall
feeling for a likeness
reaching through everything
as you bask in this rapture
more comfort than I
and still a hand reaches
blindly for naught
swallowed as I sleep
nothing to reach
but the ash, like a home
not a speck of hope
glazed eyes all but shut
less trivial than bleak
silence; fear the sound of speak
sound of speak
Phantom pain
Walls collapse
Thoughts relapse
Phantom pain
I find solace in this misery
Track Name: disgust; disguise
Harvesting men
stealing their skin
Mending their flesh
stitched with a grin
Perfect victim
no denying
No enjoyment?
I'd be lying
Wearing the face of deception
Modern man can't face rejection
Track Name: crumbling
the foundation is crumbling
i have nowhere to stand
immune to no one
was this part of your plan?
not a word was spoken
you've said so much
you're going nowhere
let go of your crutch
revel in the darkness you despise
lightning strikes, twice
ignore the pain behind your eyes
in feverous plight
on my hands and knees
bathe in purgatory
a call; reply
without a whimper nor cry
my light that never goes out
has all but lost its flame
flailing limbs
losing faith
