Diabolus in Muzaka For some reason, in a fit of youthful stupidity, I traded my original copy of this in. Glad to have this monster again. Favorite track: Invert The Idols.

zirtonic The perfect marriage of brutality and accessibility. This thing has grooves, technical prowess, crushing slams, insanely precise drumming, and the writing is actually pretty good (they've always been better at that than most of their peers). The best starting point for brutal death metal. Favorite track: Devout Atrocity.

Josh H. This is the first brutal death metal album I ever bought along with Monolith Of Inhumanity by Cattle Decapitation that sent me on a journey to discover the heaviest music possible. Favorite track: From Womb To Waste.

Minds seduced by scripture, masquerade as pawns Rejecting each other, they take on many forms Minions praising with compulsion, statues stand and stare Holy hymns, incantations, rise into the air High on the myths of the church They never quite see where they are Like God, their devil is an icon, for face-painting frauds A holy ghost laugh, a fetish for the weak Satanic overlords for paranoid freaks Always ranting and obsessing, hiding from themselves Living out their fantasy, morbidly indulged High on the myths of the church They never quite see where they are Their devil is a joke in the real world Where death is never far Burn all the icons, fuck your fairytales Cleanse your head of filth Bred on illusion, fed on tradition pull the wool from your eyes
Subjected To A Beating (free) 04:53
Thirteen years I was locked away, A life thrown under the wheel. As each day passed, I never looked back, Just a beat down body with a mind intact Counting days inside my head Set the trap, stab my back, then walk away Framed and judged, left behind to take the blame Slam the door, cut the cord, and cast aside I don't care what it takes, you're fucking dead! I never used to be so full of hate It just grew and grew by the hour and day Dreams of death, cold revenge Now any means justifies the end All of my thoughts set to kill I'm never gonna stop Until I have your head No matter how long whatever will come To end your life is my reason to live I'll haunt and hunt you down, Traitor of the brotherhood Defect and run a once and future failure gone A trail of schizophrenic lies follow your forgotten steps As fake laughter hides the serpent tongue behind your breath Veracity expelled, you thrive on your deceit Lying comes with ease just like your all-consuming greed The stroke of midnight passed, the penance hour nears Each nerve alive with fear, an omen of your ending coming fast Subjected to a beating I'll choke the life out from your eyes Subjected to a beating Only when you're dead can I be free And God won't hear you fucking scream Cold blooded homicide is what it takes to be sure To put my fist to your face and spill your guts out on the floor Like a thousand red stabs of pain, for each day I was locked away You'll taste every ounce of blood as it pours out from what used to be your head No redemption No regrets No excuses Only death Execution so long coming, finally attained Gasping out, last words uttered, only were my name Pure revenge, all consuming, perfectly arranged Satisfaction, pure elation, nothing else remains But one less fucking human on the Earth
Second Skin 04:42
Searching, Wandering Looking for the perfect specimen Still pure, immature Acknowledged sickness concealed, swaggering Unseen, stalking Ascertain the prey Creeping quietly Gracious second skin Courteous facade accepted The cultured do not harm Fitting in amongst the sheeple Purpose clear Sheltered secret Unsoiled inceptive Infantile delight The itch that needs attention Clandestine recreation Craving obscured outside Covering unbridled pretense Breaks from the masquerade Unrestrained fleeting moments reminiscence To comprehend the need, ectasy Schizophrenic lies, seeking explanation No excuse, Unchecked, no reasoning Devoid of disease, Disguised expertise Living in the shroud of ordinary Waiting to unleash the polished skill set Plethors of just rewards Life through the power of the conquered Repulsed by the dormant time Disgusted by outlook of offspring should not breed Arrogance in no one looking Not suspected in any wrongs Knowing steps of specialized inquiry Superiority on display Flaunting prowess prodding counterparts Provocatioin stands unanswered Divergence of standard procedure Bestowment of allusion granted Come on, false rival No excuse, unchecked, no reasoning Devoid of disease, disguised expertise Living in the shroud of ordinary Waiting to unleash the polished skill set
Burning urge to conceive like animals blind in heat But they're human all the same copulation compulsion to breed, just anatomy and instinct lust consumed but the product is a human life. A malicious maternal seed spewed forth in precarious birth from the womb into the trash. Precious, twisting life, crawling on the filth of the dumpster floor. Only known to the mother in guilt, as she stumbles from the alley covered in flies. With a ten mile stare dead to the world she never gave one fuck for the child inside...none. Sucks the crack pipe in shame just to forget. Yet with another hit, she's on the streets again in another life she once had hope. But that went down the drain. Along with her pride. Nurses habitually resigned. Tossing the carcass, in the waste bin death legally designed? Or fixing the future with quick extraction? Conceived and thrown away from womb into the waste. Human trash, putrid, the bodies overrun. Aborted removal, with cold precision. Tools specifically designed forcing fetal termination. Blind the morally enraged. Bomb the clinic into oblivion. Kill the killer they will say. Justice through murder goes both ways. Conceived and thrown away from womb into the waste. One more girl, mortified. Never knew what was growing within. Obese, diseased, down on her knees she gave birth on the toilet seat. Insert anesthetize. Late term feticide. Orphan spawned from rape. Short lived, half a face. Crackhead whore for host. Hatching living ghosts. Pregnant, drunk and high. It was no surprise, when she left it there to die. One more girl who could never conceive. Psychopath, maternity-mad. Took a steel bat to her mother's head, hacked her up and took the baby out. One more girl, six months in, takes a hanger and a bottle of pills. The pro-life priest has nothing to say as the embryo's scraped away. Straight into the trash with the unborn offspring, generations dead in time, progeny unwanted. Dead flesh pile a mass of cells, 10 more bags and the landfill swells. Ripened mass fetal decay, no one cares were they human anyway?
Dissidence 03:27
Lost in your own conviction Being lead from outside eyes Perceiving success as malevolent At the expense of others Defiance with hands out Claiming the bribes as plunder Images presented certainty Driving thoughts that despise Subservient, obedient Wanting to preserve the cause Tag along within the pack Acceptable behavior stick to the mantra Fan the flames of discontent Open the window for opportunism Civic disobedience, barbarism incurs, violence within the horde Reguritating what you're told In the momnet feels like wisdom Declarations of simpatico Cementing thoughts of divine purpose Coinciding goals power of suggestions Ushering the age of euphoria Presuming the absence of interior conflict Startled by antagonism Easily rationalized The mob is pulling the strings Peers the moral compass, antipathy realized Calls for action, tensions boiling, surrogate violence Tragic revolt, prominent support Favorable courage, bolstered exploit, elevated impact Obstinate provocation initiating response Willful ignorance wallowed in Talking heads to permeate insight No need to modify agenda Marching orders on the way
An abomination The last of a family of filth Procreator should have pulled out A fucking waste of sperm Family scorned abhorrance Would've done the world a favor So much aggravation alleviated If you were aborted How pathetic can one be? Always sinking to new levels Years ago written off Cast out for nefarious ways But had no life, no purpose So jealous festers within Feculence excrement An utmost compliment Walking pile of shit With empty words No decency rectitude Or credibility Forthrightness lost A shallow form of life A disgrace without integrity Karma has come to claim The walking dead Eradicate, ravage your being Revulsion intensifies Persevere until i spill blood Jubilate as you die Doors opened wide The pulse of death has arrived The sum of all your fears Exposing all your fucking lies Limbs crack and split Raining teeth, blood and spit Choked screams appear Yet your begging falls upon deaf ears In the trenches we meet again I will reign supreme Destroy all adversaries Fuck your enemies Time and time you fucked me over You are dead to me In the trenches we meet again I will reign supreme Reign supreme! Fucking die now Eat my fucking shit Annihilation I will conquer To the end i will not stop Until you reach your timely demise Lacerate, rip out your throat Decapitate and shit down your neck I blackout in extreme pleasure from watching you writhe in pain Your parasitic existence terminated, piss on your remains
Engulfed by fate Knowing you're part of, foretold prophecy Awaiting the future Post-apocalyptic visions you see them Nearing tsunami Cleansing the world of all inhabitants Dormant volcanoes Rapidly awakened, spewing out torment Impending, Calamities come forth Anxious from Prospects of affliction, bllissful Revelations, religion, clairvoyance, self assured Proactive, actions to be taken, bring about Armageddon the end that nears Without warning to the nonbelievers Trying to facilitate Precursor anarchy proliferation The credulous populace Ready to partake, extensive indiscretion Cynics that are only interested In disruption Join festivities Tearing down the entire system They believe Will be no more Acting out final impulse, Boundless juncture Looming devestation Awaiting the ultimate release Of death Relish the undertaking Enlisting anyone who will wreck Cconfiguration Of the status quo Feeding paranoia to the rest Of what's next Riots the beginning Constructing revolution, Loosely bound The chaotic notion Preach to leave caution to the wind, No more sin End of days is here Living in the frenzy so surreal Ignoring possible extinction Preparation after thought Conspiracy consume many of them What they new when and how Goverment coverup primary beef Not uninhibited extermination Staring down the end of a barrel Not fazed by threat oblivious Still exasperated no warning given Observing aristocracy full disregard Living in the frenzy so surreal Ignoring possible extinction Preparation after thought Peasants following their trendy causes Forgetting the grand scheme of things If predictions of events prove true So many left to fend off annihilation Ignoring mass extinction Cracks in the earth seperate, devestation Ash covered sky, enveloping darkness Spreading fire burns everything unrestrained Inhospitable indefinite wasteland Methane lakes emerge poisonous Asphyxiation Mass extinction
The long lasting record The customary truths Historic correlation Questioning is moot Victor's think the privilege Of taking the account Falls on their shoulders Vain assumption flawed Amending previous chronicles Descends in generation Peering through the tilted lens Varied from your persepective Filled from old propaganda wars Sculted curve of knowlege No need for reflection When belief transcends truth Making your own revisionist past To cite in the face of any challenge Erode their will To confront, made aware of reprisal You can't dispute revisionist past Debate is over ascertaining fact Berate them all If claimed a ruse, assassinate honor Conspiratorial posture Of abundant detractors Beating down the fraud A hopeless exercise Taking on the zealous Errand full of risk Imperiling all standing Diminished significance Claims to wisdom, ascendancy saturates Nothing locks the preordained path Imbued with unparalleled capacity Possessing all means to an end Abandoning the stance of participant Authoring the fair version clearer No need for reflection When belief transcends truth Can't be altered veracity Don't disregard, legitimacy It's pettiness any inquiry To the faithful variations are not lies
Die, don't revive, won't succumb Conduit of anger, tools of the trade Essential supply of patrol compulsory Instruments of wrath, in need of the lifeblood Never ending skirmish for resource control When entry contested, instigate combat Financial enticement right to access No alternative 'til it's gone Proxy battlefield, resupplied With the means to strike down abruptly All attrition comes from above Inflexile directives bound to With the foothold, still in the game Posturing rivals, one in the same Necessary actions breed hostility Postponement of eventual crusade Indigenous inhabitants Striving to create their tranquility Forcing the masses to devote submission Time is running short for that vision Accelerated endeavor Seeing the light at the end of the tunnel When there's nothing left but sand The priviledged squandering wealth Wasted on obsolete armaments Window of proseperity Closing as the years go by Wanting to save face Of ancient grievances Refusing to move forward Utilizing nothing Depletion of reservoirs ratcheting up methodology Claiming intent of purpose to aid and support The blood of power The blood of power When exhaustion limit nears proxy war meets conclusion Full fledged world campaign, every nation's declaration Supremacy through allies, choosing sides, which one lies? Claims to those assets for warranted capital, seize Everything on the table of possibilities No surrender without prize vital dependency The new reserves, the ocean floor front line The future uncertain, submerged technology Progressing forth, into the unknown
