about

Sweden's unsung sensations play crushing grindcore with blistering blastbeats, ravenously crusty riffs, and just a hint of that Swedish sound. A lightning speed blitzkrieg of sonic violence!

Track Name: This Is...
This is what it's all about
This is why we play
This is why we make your day
This is it...
Track Name: The Masked Face
Picture a masked face
Painted black with shining teeth
Unmask the image
Realize - you stare into a mirror!

Denude - the masked face
Free yourself from the illusion

Refine the reflection
Re-establish the fundamentals
Wash away the filth
Purify - your head is clogged with doubt!

Denude - the masked face
Free yourself from the illusion

The masked face!
Track Name: Digging In
Never seem to realize...

...that this can't continue!

Working hard, digging in...

...digging your own grave!
Track Name: Time To Act!
Tell me why I just can't fucking understand
Tell me why this doesn't seem to have an end
Work all day for a cause I've never understood
Hate this shit - I hate this fucking shit!

So do you think you make a difference?
Well do you? Good! It's time to act!
Track Name: Disdain and Contempt
Disdain and contempt - walk hand in hand
Disdain and contempt - my only friends
Disdain and contempt - my life for you
Disdain and contempt - you're killing me
Track Name: I See Lies
I see the headlines of today
I see the words but I can't comprehend
I see the news as a shit covered wall
I see lies only lies

Lies! I see lies!

I see your mouth form some words
I see it move but I can't fucking hear it
I see your mouth as a shit filled hole
I see lies only lies

Lies! I see lies!
Track Name: Inhale/Exhale
Inhale/exhale

You breathe to live
You breathe - you die

Inhale/exhale
Track Name: Too Naked To Distort
Release me from this anger
Release me from this pain
Give me time to think
This is too hard to explain

When all the facts are given
I sense a different thought
Seen from a different angle
Too naked to distort

Now is the time to bring out the truth
No more lies, time for you to give up
Now is the time to bring out the truth
End this bullshit, we won't have it this way
Track Name: There's No Escape
Are you one of those that doesn't ever care?
Do you think that you stand above the rest?
Are you afraid of getting dirt under you fingernails?
Never looking back, the future is yours...

You think you stand above the rest
But nothing will save you, there is no escape
What you destroy will affect the world
You're as deep in the shit as everyone else

Who will come to save you when the end is near?
Your money won't buy you air to breath
Maybe it's time to stop and think?
Realize - it's our responsibility...

You think you stand above the rest
But nothing will save you, there is no escape
What you destroy will affect the world
You're as deep in the shit as everyone else

There's no escape...
Track Name: The Rest Is Over
The rest is over, the recess is done, it's time to act
You've been indulgent for far too long and it's time to act

You must get out of this
You can't go on like this

Ebullient and enthusiastic you take the first step
Exit the hibernation - enter the world of possibilities

You must get out of this
You can't go on like this
Track Name: Disappointed
How many times have you told me that you'll get things done?
And how many times have I seen you with empty hands?
Why is it always so fucking hard to keep a promise?
How should I ever trust you when...

...you disappoint me!
You disappoint me!
Again and again!

How many times have I stood alone waiting for you?
And how many times have I walked away deserted?
I don't need your explanations they mean nothing to me
I will never trust you, 'cause...

...you disappoint me!
You disappoint me!
Again and again!
Track Name: Lägg Om!
Varför lägga all sin energi på ingenting?

Lägg om kursen du hinner än!

Varför ödsla tid och energi på idioti?

Lägg om kursen, du hinner än!
Lägg om kursen, jag tror du hinner än!
Track Name: You're Obsolete
Stare me in my eyes and tell me that you don't care
Try to convince me that you will not try to change

You are nothing - you're obsolete
You are really nothing - you're disposable

All the work and no play will surely make you numb
But endless wandering isn't the solution

You are nothing - you're obsolete
You are really nothing - you're disposable

All the work and no play will surely make you numb
You are - nothing!

Endless wandering isn't the solution
You are - nothing!
Track Name: Tested
Are you the brave one?
Would you dare to defy their cause?
Can you stand up for yourself?
Back up your thoughts with more than just empty words?

'Cause I am here to test you
And you're about to fail

Are you convinced of the fact?
That you're absolutely right?
Do you actually believe?
Believe that what you say is really true?

'Cause I am here to test you
And you're about to fail

'Cause I think you're full of shit, I think you're full of shit!
Track Name: Shapeshifter
Go!
On your way to popularity, you will bend the truth
Every second word a falsity, to be cool, to be right

Liar! - You're shifting shape to be a friend!
But you will always be a liar!
You're shifting shape to be a friend!
But you're a fucking failure!

You're a shapeshifter and you're a lie

I spit in your face, wipe off your smile
- show the world who you are
You two-faced bastard, don't fucking deny
- that you're a shapeshifter
Track Name: Feed Them, Kill Them, Skin Them
Take them - for what they are
Treat them - with love and respect

Their skin so desirable, so much money to make
Life will turn to profit, and you don't fucking care

Feed them, kill them, skin them
Their lives ain't worth shit!

I just can't take it - no more!
Won't let you do this to them!
I just can't stand this - no more!
Won't let you do it - anymore!
Track Name: When Science Fails
Is this revenge, this modern, mortal plague?
Has science failed or is progress none?
No words spoken but I still hear
"No urgency - this concerns only..."

The weak - the outcasts
The weak - the worthless

Nameless white-robes exploring the unknown
Manipulating with human lives
And through this wickedness, I ask myself
Who pulls the string, who doesn't care?

Murderers - in disguise
Murders - well disguised

Last call for faith or progress
Last call for life
Nowhere to run or hide
...When science fails
Track Name: Closing In
Don't want to tell you lies, don't want to be false
Still I have to make you sad and break down all your doors

Stagnated - ignorant
Future is closing in

Your lives as you know them are coming to an end
It's time for different values, it's time for you to change

Stagnated - ignorant
Future is closing in

We've lived with all you hatred for far too many years
Now we will break down all your barriers and teach you some respect
Track Name: The World That You Made
You've climbed all stairs and made a career,
not thinking of what's behind you
All these years that you've been living -
would you do them again?

Punctured eyes, deceiving lies
Trapped in the world that you made

The world you meet is fooled by your smile,
but inside you're not shining
Everyday another glimpse of the fear
that there's no higher level

The fear you fear is drawing near
It is the world that you made
Track Name: The System Has Failed Again
Can you believe it? The system has failed!
Can you believe it? It failed once again!
People are starving, the crime rates increasing
The all fell through the "security net"

You better believe it!
The whole system failed!
Track Name: For What Cause?
Our perfect society, gives us food and shelter
Gives us food and shelter, takes care of the weak

Lying - for what cause?
Raping - for what cause?
Killing - for what cause?
There's no reason!

Our perfect society, builds mass destructive arms
Educates the weak in the art of death

Lying - for what cause?
Raping - for what cause?
Killing - for what cause?
There's no reason!
Track Name: Fullmatad
Fullmatad med lögner
Lurad och förnedrad

Kan du gissa vad jag tänker på?

Nergången, destruktiv
Utan hopp, utan liv

Kan du gissa vad jag tänker på?

Fullmatad med lögner
Utan hopp, utan liv

Kan du gissa vad jag tänker på?
Track Name: Screwed
Work hard every day, hope to get your share
While society gives you a number, a place in the end of the longest line

Why do you compete? I don't understand
Why do you compete? You know how this will end?

"But of course you make a difference, feel free to make your choice
Do whatever pleases you, but dare not to raise your voice!"
Track Name: Shaping The End
End all that is useless, you must be all that has won
Reach out for the fire in your eyes, glowing deep inside

For I have seen all that will come
Darkness, tasteless future, shades so gray - clouding my mind
So what? It's not as beautiful as we give it credit for
Might as well give in for the desire to end your life...

See us as we're drowning, never offer us your hand
Only leave us helpless, crawling, while you are shaping the end

For I have seen all that will come
Darkness, tasteless future, shades so gray - clouding my mind
So what? It's not as beautiful as we give it credit for
Might as well give in for the desire to end your life...

I fell so stupid never took you for what you are
There's no time for regret - shaping the end
Track Name: The New Firing-Squad
They pull the trigger, they aim to kill
Exam - condemn - destroy! They do it all for the excitement

They'll come when you least expect it
- The new firing-squad!

He pulled his trigger, he aimed to his head
Examined - condemned - destroyed! He did it all for salvation

They came when he least expected it
- The new firing-squad!
Track Name: No Sign of Improvement
Everything is getting better, everything is going smoother

But everything's the same!

Tell me why is doesn't change, tell me why it stays the same

Why does is stay the same?

The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Track Name: My Philosophy
Disconcerting the downsides, emphasizing on the positive
Characterizes my philosophy

My philosophy!

Shaping a guideline, free to follow
Sharing the thoughts of my philosophy

My philosophy!
Track Name: I'm Not Silent
They stuff my mouth with a cloth, blindfolds my eyes
But tightened ropes can't hold me back nor violence or lies

Gagged and bound - but I'm not silent
Gagged and bound - my mind still speaks

Beaten beyond recognition, revenge boils in my veins
No more silence since the weak will inherit the lies

Gagged and bound - but I'm not silent
Gagged and bound - my mind still speaks
Track Name: The Breathing Furnace
Burn your past on a stake
Burn you values and views
Burn and let the furnace breath
Burn, just fucking burn

The breathing furnace
The breathing furnace is you
Burn and breath...

Breath the new dawn air
Breath the wind of change
Breath and evolve
Breath, just fucking breath

The breathing furnace
The breathing furnace is you
Breath and burn...
Track Name: Information Is Free
Information is free - you can't deny that
Information is free - you can't keep it back

You'll always be someone, there's no place to hide
Nowhere's a haven - you're a page in the book

Information is free - I'll know what you've done
Information is free - I'll know where you are

You'll always be someone, there's no place to hide
Nowhere's a haven - you're a page in the book
Track Name: Burning Inside
Seize the day - is what to do
Grab the moment - make what's best
Don't be still - activate your mind
Discharge the flame - turn dark to light

Swallow the fire, embody the heat

Seize the fire - the burning flame
Ignite your will - let emotions spark
Don't be silent - speak your mind
Leave your lair - end the dark

Swallow the fire, embody the heat

Swallow the fire, embody the heat
...burning inside...
Track Name: A Request For Guidance
I don't know the hardcore book of rules, but I have yet succeeded
Instead of complaining on my life, guide me and show me the way

Show me the way! Show me!

I don't need your advice, Mr Punk! I'll do without them
Punk is to think for yourself, not to think for others
Track Name: Grey
Grey is the feeling, grey is my view of society
Grey is the tension, grey is the face - face of disgrace
Grey is the building, grey is the room in which I live
Grey is my life, grey is the colour of hopelessness

All is grey - pictures, shapes
All is grey - views and smells
All is grey - nights and days
All is grey - you and me

Grey is the present, grey is the future - future unborn
Grey is the reason, grey is why I stay up late
Grey is the moment, grey is every hour in my life
Grey is the silence, grey is how I feel today
Track Name: Worldcraft
Worldcraft - complex structures, a new society
Built from scratch in three dimensions
Blocks on blocks, a new era taking form
Give it a shape, this nameless beast

Is this the answer to our prayers?
The kingdom - tear it down again!
Cheated, defeated, misled
Our kingdom - tear it down again!

Creatures - a new breed, hostility, rebirth
Mass invasion of the armed and disillusioned
Kill on command, protect and serve
The perfect society

Is this the answer to our prayers?
The kingdom - tear it down again!
Cheated, defeated, misled
Our kingdom - tear it down again!
Track Name: It's Never Too Late
Start to think, start to live
Make your best, make an effort
Track Name: Du Ar Bevakad
Det som inte blotta ögat ser det finns inte där
Allt som inte rör på sig står still
Det finns inget som vi inte ser, vi ser allt som är
Du kan inte gömma dig från oss

Stenhård disciplin
Bäst att inte göra bort sig, kan sluta illa då.
Här gäller stenhård disciplin
Alla vet vad som förväntas av var och en

Ställ dig rakt I ledet nu, blicka endast fram
Kom ihåg att allt du ser, ser och hör är sant
Gör som du blir tillsagt, kom ihåg du nu tillhör oss
Glöm allt det du hade, glöm det liv du haft

Du är bevakad...
Track Name: Blinded
Blinded by sunlight, blinded by stardust
Blinded by society and you still don't see
Blinded by yourself...

And through the eyes of the weak
I see why you always fail
Track Name: Can De Lach
Desperation - in these silences something may rise
A vampire traveling from host to host with one breath
Regulating - in the house of the wolf and the scorpion
Ancient statues transforming passion into death

Deep down in the heart of the unformed
Speak the language of the dead
Mi him en tow! Tak ah lah!
Succumb in the heart of the unformed

Desperation - in it's silences something has risen
A Prayboy leading the ones who are left in this town
Forward! To the ini they must go
Confronted and feel the pain because God is cruel

Deep down in the heart of the unformed
Speak the language of the dead
Mi him en tow! Tak ah lah!
Succumb in the heart of the unformed
Death is the heart of the unformed
