bcb723 Yeah - this is what I'm talking about. UK post-grind/doom aggression through some weird ass prog filter. Check out those parenthetical song titles? Check the lyrics for the subtitled instrumental leads à la King Crimson 1969? Total prog spirit. Then take in the goddamn biblical end of world metal hell this band unleashes. And hold on... Favorite track: Like Gods Departed (Plague: Acedia).

FAILURE A RANK TASTE SO BITTER SO FOUL THE LIGHT OF A THOUSAND STARS ECLIPSED BY VANITY AS FACILE VERMIN SWARM TO DENY THEIR BLOODBORN MOURNING LIGHT THIS WASTE OF FLESH AND BONE REPULSES, UNDIGNIFIED TO STUMBLE FORTH, TO SABOTAGE UNEDIFIED AN EMBARRASSMENT OF RAGS BURNED RICHES BESTOWED FROM HIGH THE GREAT DECEPTION, THAT TONGUES UNSPLIT BE FORKED SQUEEZE THE LIE TIL SANGUINE DRIP, FOR MAN SHALL LIVE FOR NEVERMORE HATE REIGNS, IN HIS NAME, THE GOD OF WRATH DUPLICITY DIVINE THEIR VENIN POISONED MINDS SHALL WREAK MY HAVOC, ROIL SOW DISCORD, NO ABEYANCE FOR I SHALL DENY THEIR DEMISE LEAD: ‘’Suit & Tie Scum’ (Lee James Appleton) Turning and turning in the widening, The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, A blood-dimmed tide, and everywhere; The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity. Surely some revelation is at hand; Surely the Second Coming is at hand.The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out When a vast image Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert A shape with lion body and the head of a man, A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun, Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds. The darkness drops again; but now I know That twenty (one) centuries of stony sleep Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle, And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born? ‘The Second Coming’ W.B.Yeats, 1919

Awake my child, embrace the winter kiss A cold caress of tidal fears, pulling you down to drown with me (or him) Don’t sleep again my child, for eternity’s breath won’t warm thy sallow eyes again, or see the future scarred Unbarren you stand as saviour No choice We don’t have a choice HATE! REDEMPTION’S PATH ONCE TRODDEN BY A MOTHER HATED BY MANY SCORNED WHOSE ROTTED, MANGLED FEET DID TREAD THROUGH FETID TIMES   THE SPEAR WHICH CARVED HIS SIDE AND RENT APART A SPLINTER FOR YOUR MIND’S EYE A JAGGED SEED WHICH GROWS (and grows and grows and…) A HAND WITH FINGERS SPLAYED AND BENT AND SNAPPED AND SHATTERED SHALL BE YOUR ONLY CORRUPTION, ONLY SEDITION, ONLY RELEASE FROM THE SPIRAL THAT DRIPS INTO YOUR MOUTH NO BLESSING, NO APPLE FRESH, TAINTED BURDEN YOU’LL TAKE HIS SCARS, STIGMATA’S CROWN AND INFECT THIS EARTH WITH HIS POISON YOU DON’T HAVE A CHOICE! AS CANCER GROWN ON SAVAGE SILT IN PERDITION’S JAWS WE SPAWN AS TUMOUR SWELLS TO SAVIOUR SOUL INTO CHAOS’ ARMS WE MOURN   OPPRESSION’S CHILD OR FREE WILL BURNING? A SHARD COULD END IT ALL HIS LIGHT, MY DARK, THEIR PATH, OUR FATHER FRACTURED TO MAKE US FALL   MY HAND, THIS WORLD, THEIR SCARS, OUR HOPES WE’VE SERVED TO KILL THE TAR SHALL SMOTHER OCEANS BLACK COULD YOU KILL WHAT YOU LOVE TO SAVE SO MANY (hated) ? SEVEN PLAGUES CORRODING ALL WRATH! LUST! SLOTH! GREED! ENVY! PRIDE! A GLUTTONY …OF SINS TO PASS TO OFFSPRING BORN TO DIE TO DESCEND WITH HATED CHILD TO LIVE, TO BREATH, TO NEED, TO SHUN THE LIGHT NO SON COULD SEAR OR SANCTIFY WE HAVE NO CHOICE WE HAVE NO CHOICE WE HAVE NO CHOICE WE ALWAYS HAVE A CHOICE
