April Hutchins Wow! Occasionally silly song titles aside, there’s no doubt that these boys know how to write a great metal song. Killer riffs, ripping drums, epic vocals and great arrangements all around. Hope to hear more from them someday. Favorite track: Osiris: I. Reanimation, II. Chaos, III. Afterlife.

Track Name: The Year of the Dragon (Free Download!)
For five million years
Our system sketched in stone
Etched by our sacred tradition
By the warring states
We attribute eons of our existence
To beast and rodent.

Although on both sides of the mirror
We remain so alike
Take common need, a human creed and
Adaptation ensues

Time
Is an artificial device
Invisible cage that imprisons us
Bend the bars, break the cycle of tradition
But never forget
To appreciate

Let us remember our roots
As we ascertain methods to ward the tomb
Abandon our feuds
And open our minds to the sun
Track Name: Torrential Rain
Can you feel the gates giving?
Do you quiver at our uprising?
Fighting against you
Overthrow
Bringing the end (Torrential Rain)

Over is your tyranny
Violent fall from grace
Never again will you brandish the sword
Washed away (Torrential Rain)

Bloody
Your rise to power
Fearful
Your loyal subjects
War crimes
Your vicious tactics
I'll fucking cut your head off

Bloody
Your final battle
Fearful
You hopeless coward
Rebel
Against your legion
I'll fucking cut your head off

Draw the sword of your destruction
Catch the gaze of your damnation
Fuel the flames of your ignition
Bringing the end (Torrential Rain)

This is the last time that you and I will cross paths within this life
Call upon your subjects
This ends now

Was it worth it to lose yourself in your power thirsty quest to conquer?
Pray to your gods that they may deliver you
Hold your breath, I'll make this quick, which is more than you deserve
And as your head rolls upon the earth a new era of peace will dawn.
Track Name: Rise
I hate you
You pompous tyrant
A failure of a father figure
Your control is but words
Hollow and lonely just like you

Crawl on your knees
You will bleed
Force fed the medicine you yearn to receive
And I will Rise

You suffer because of him
Character petrified
By the mind leeching media you subscribe
No idea what you are, what you want or what you need
You're shackled and blind
But I will Rise.

Sadness and separation
Are harboured here
Not to your throne, but to my own
Which is freedom from you

How could I forget you
The one who brings me this
The face I wish to smash along with your life
But you hold me down, and push me around
And hold me back, unconsciously attack my mind

Sadness and separation
Are harboured here
Not to your throne, but to my own
Which is freedom from you

At the death this will end
If not you then me
Not anymore will we stand
Stand for this
Track Name: In Sheep's Clothing
Die
Deceiver
Fall below
Take your insides
Turn them out

Behemoth
Deliverance
Bone shattering roar
Decimate
All that you are

Spill your blood
Upon the floor
Beast inside this vessel

Shed the veil of humanity
Release my cursed insanity.

You give me the rope
And we set it alight
You give us a way out
Still we're statuesque
The life of a drone
Is not what we wish

Some say that death is harboured in the cold
Yet we are birthed in its kingship
And yearn to brave it once more
We see home

We will never look back
Advance forward and conquer
For us the torch is not lit, for the path forward is best taken blind
For us the torch is not lit, for the path forward is best taken blind

To you a trap is to us a blessing
A warning is a beckoning
The life in the crowd is your story
And ours is what we write for ourselves

So when you fall to the ground
It will be in our shadow
Even if you never stumble
Our march will rumble

Track Name: The Last Day on Earth
Why is this happening?
What is this burning that I feel?
This feeling taking over
My mind is screaming out for peace
How can I tell you
I've failed despite my best efforts?
I am too young to die
Don't let this happen to me

All of the light is fading
There is nothing more to be done (So save your breath)
Trapped in this world I bleed
Now it is too dark to see

Darkness is overwhelming
Close my eyes to hide from it
My soul is scarred and broken
This pain is taking over me
There's nothing you can do
I have already made my choice
It's now my time to move on
The door has opened up for me

All of the light is fading
There is nothing more to be done (So save your breath)
Trapped in this world I bleed
Now it is too dark to see

What other choice do I have?
Now that I have seen the truth the ugliness repulses me
When I leave this place don't mourn for me
Mourn for yourself because you're the one that's suffering
Track Name: Armageddon
A short slumber ends in the trenches
By the blaring mortar shells
The skies are red
Seems they've been for days
And my brothers murdered, dead

Slaughter weaved into my brain
Programmed by the leaders
Mindless killing machine (killing machine)

I am not a machine
Propaganda makes us believe
I am not a machine
Propaganda makes us believe

But how can we believe?
When you feed me seeds of hate
False accusations of a plague-ridden people
They are not the enemy

Just the target of your madness (we know this)
Yet war machines rumble...
...And triggers pull,
We burn the Earth and think not of the eternal

I am not a machine
Propaganda makes us believe
I am not a machine
Propaganda makes us believe

What will it take to make us see,
that we ignite the ground that bears our seeds?
Turn blind eyes towards the sky and industrialize the apocalypse.
