FLESH MECHANIC With established engineers like Kurt Ballou and Joel Grind behind the scenes and with the breathtaking as usual album art by Luca Carey (Dan Terminus, Acts of Kindness album arts), this album is well worth a listen, let alone purchase. Furious thrashy blackened punk inferno that runs over you like a genetically modified man-tank. There's plenty of great riffage here and not one song falls short of the other ones. What a banger! Favorite track: Cold Orbit.

swamp_slime666 This shit is insanely good. Big thick riffs, huge fun sound, no bullshit attitude, and no hooded fake-spiritual mumbo-jumbo. Favorite track: War Terminal (The True Front Line).

JUSTIN FUCKING LOBBAN Bonkers in all the best ways possible. Why everyone on the planet isn't talking about these guys is beyond me. Favorite track: Authority Spire.

Emory LaserWolf The best thrash album in goddamn years

Matthew L It’s a furious, mind-warping thrash opus that’s as wildly inventive as it is relentlessly aggressive. There’s a borderline psychedelic quality to the music at times, with shimmering melodic leads in between the brutal crossover thrash bludgeoning, but it all comes together perfectly. Favorite track: War Terminal (The True Front Line).

"Endless Computer is mind-meltingly great thrash that sacrifices none of its power while giving into the band’s weirdest impulses" - Jeff Terich, Treblezine

Track Name: Biochron Space Suit
Slither from the sludge, oozing out the ears
Brunt of deluge, wasted million years
Rebuild the insight, engineer the doubt
Perceive the curious, warn of fallout

Coupled with Biochron Space Suit
Agnosticon
Disbelieve any proposition instantly
Accelerate
Survive in an alien continuum
Levitate
Repelling electromagnets

The temple of revelation, spirit stored kitsch
Urban patterns collecting essence of growth

Orgone discharged into waterbox
Drive shaft spinning, telluric shock
Terrestrial radius, natural point
Contact entrance back to the source

Breaking lifelong conforms vastly

Decimate to nothing
Confusion is bluffing
Track Name: R-Type 2 Civilization
No longer reason to speculate function
The megastructure has been completed

The sun's rays are fully harnessed

Swarms of space biospheres submit
Wireless transfers to divine creators

Has the buzz been heard outside the past
Into future balance of type-two civilian
When it boils to fervor, slavemasters take sight
Talon on the button, serve them in delight

Race for cerebrum, blasted twitching zaps
Knowledge constructs supermassive map

Hail the legions, league of torturers
Disperse the flocks, esoteric decree

Maul the agents, turn back the clock
Restart allover, chiseled from the block

White feedback of the soul
Knows no other, bound control
Track Name: War Terminal (The True Front Line)
As the world spins to sinister tunes of destruction
A maelstrom of degenerates blinded by cunning assurance
From advanced tyrants, matters not man or machine
Finer energy is drained in plain view of empty spirits

"Who dares to fight, so life may exist?"

A wise soul discovers entrance
Psychic projection, initiate Geochronmechane

"Welcome brave one, the true front line"

Opposite side of the war terminal
Illusions wrought by virtual gods
Reveal forms beyond consciousness
Within the octave of temporality

Conveyor of ego accelerates
Toward termination at the cosmic palm
Pristine packets delivered infinitely
Through the gate of humanity's cosmic undoing

Nine thousand years passed the origin moment expired
Not a second too soon for the void to swallow this ghastly grave
Hijacked lives by higher intelligence wasted and depraved
Crushing gravity of nonexistence begins new age
Track Name: Endless Computer
Sunspots flicker, awoken from a dream
Menacing dance on voltaic seams
Ignited hiss, the infinite display
Has trapped visuals and forced memory

Falling backwards through the mind
Pained fingers claw and grind
At the coils of the column
Looming over all that exists

Not strong enough to make it out alive
Cursed thoughts to wish sudden death
Sinking further in a spiral
This viciousness has its grip beyond the ones who define virtue

The will arises to conjure a force
Brute and controlled, perfect in design
A gift from the elders, beamed through the ages
To avoid the collision programmed by time

Hail the prescient order, these endless circuits
Silencing hostility with swift calculation

Conclusive decision, assimilating order
Locked into illusion, the deserted will march

This viciousness has its grip beyond the ones who divide!
Track Name: Authority Spire
The grip of revered cosmology exaggerates the weight of skin
Forged symbols control outright, new blueprints from within
Desires to loosen the burden, voyage to expanses unknown
Begin machinations unrelenting, splintered wills strewn below

Advancing order
Swollen worlds
Strain erased

Catapulting
Ever forward
In a blaze

Masters proclaim a reality designed by the minds of beasts
Molded into throngs of passion that seek the crown of peace
Erecting a cone of veracity, a circuitous monolithic praise
Answer amidst the dissolution, light above a sunless maze

Dazzling glow warrants harmonic choir
Virtuous summons from authority spire
Heed the shock that flows effervescent
Earth is charged with astral directive

Suffering wiped from the lands of morrow
Power takes ahold of the weak and sorrowed

Basking in energy
Surplussed hive
Barbs of knowledge coalesce
Buzzing head rapidly disseminates
Altogether tranquil swarm
Track Name: Opulent Tesseract Ascension
Equivalent transfer of power
Between flying citadel and scorched worldscape

Altered domain
Complete integration of all judgment previously defuse

Moon linked fortress halts human activity
Toil to purely survive eliminated

Dangerous idea, genetics reshaped
Amendment deemed adequately debased
New creature appears grotesque
Luminance severe wrapped in its hate

Begin ascent of opulent tesseract
Monarch raises obstacle upon the path

Double-layered spheres rotate
Furnishes all energy needed
Micro worlds generate a new anomaly
Information and cultures self-repair infinitely

Contact
Distribute
Minimize

Look up, behold master of dynamic world
Keeper of the end, ghastly parasite
Track Name: Mechanized Deathcanal
Horned swine glares
Crimson oculus flares

Ambiguous thoughts leave the mind
Melted spider-like encroachment binds
Burning coals, webbed tomb
Organic matter wholly consumed

Abyss of transition invites aloud
Warmth injection, vibrant shroud
Hydro-medusa looms overhead
Blessed quest in eternal bed

Battalion of hooks
Underworlders
Pierced flesh
Rebels weakened
Vessels crashing
Mortals retracted

Mechanized deathcanal
Apparatus breathes life

Crossed dimensions
Splitting time
Comprising
Evolution and progression renew existence

Radiant order
Mouth of monstrous caliph:
"Bring me the heads of Earthly cowards"
Track Name: Timezapped
From the crescent, portals beckon
A forceful unit, wretched villains
Attack the systems and smash control
Electrocution binds their souls

Ride to die, living pile
Flesh is loose and vile

Tidal waves of coded ashes
Crashing over blistered masses

Timezapped and space flogged
Flaring whip terminates the cog

Forced fed and skull battered
Arcane flail shatters all defects

They reach to break the sun
A binding sidereal light
Clawing through melted cables
Polluting power with might

The crime squad returns once more to stake its filthy claim
Boring like an amoeba, twisting undetected inside all brains

Unmanifested are the assailants, spreading agony deranged
Begins events far too fast for the impression of change

Eyes scan escape
Take to the streets
Unclear future
Afflict release
Track Name: Cold Orbit
Choked and scanning over fiery ruins
Gas and mist clouds, obstructed view
Mangled wires entwined with virus
Life spreads like dotted cirrhus

Morose, calloused riding waves of nonbeing
Inhale the singed stench, always dominates
All senses shut down, vastly overburdened
Engage the revelatory superconsciousness

Bypass death, stroke of faith
Look to the stars, celestial graph
Admission welcomed from eternal timeline

"To flee this realm that collapsed on its own, is to be one with second self unknown
But first crawl to a changeless wakescape link, and thusly locked into a cold orbit"

Ghost of Templar slowly shows itself
Between the eyes and stem of the brain
Passed the token of supreme circumstance
And spoke these words, with booming resonance:

"To flee this realm that collapsed on its own, is to be one with second self unknown
But first crawl to a changeless wakescape link, and thusly locked into a cold orbit"
