about

"Mixing metal heft and punk rhythms, scalding vocal acid and gritty yells, both “H.E.L.L.B.O.O.T.” and “Harding Ice Command” are spine-shivering head-wreckers."
- NO CLEAN SINGING

"This EP...takes the mean, spitting speed of their "Laws of Power" debut and makes a dystopian, Cronenberg-ian left turn into bizarro psychedelia."
- INVISIBLE ORANGES

Track Name: H.E.L.L.B.O.O.T.
Sent to live and not die
Crashed to the world, blazing wicked flame
A fleet of goons fully insane
Wreaking devastation in no one's honor
Chaos is order, sacred are devoured

Spit from the vortex
Slamming through the stars
They've come to take what's rightfully theirs
A distant constellation hidden from the knowledge
Of every hopeless soul on this empty rock

Can it be heard among all ears
Churning filament, the swift light-years
Resounding strident tone across black oceans
Ancient galaxies mark the future uncertain

Take from my hand this relic, it's not a saviour
Just the lonely whispers
In times of panic all sentience has no meaning
A brutal truth realized
All too late, the leviathan consumes at discretion
Merciless swing of the scythe
Simple this transformation, quagmired in convolution
Soothing pummel of the mace

Again the infinite builders cloaked in venom
Rapture up the worthy, travel the stars continuously to
Plant a distant seed, which in turn becomes a god
That recycles souls gratuitously collected on His mantle
Track Name: Harding Ice Command
Coordinates set, dropping in the zone
Lush forest deceptive in its greeting
Wildflowers smell, intoxicates fervor
Beasts lurk behind brush, doesn't tire

Pressing onward 23,000 years
Mocking presence of unusual being

Yelping at ghosts howling through the mind
No one there to help, staying alive is fine
Around each bend something to behold
Comes again illusion, the curse unfolds

Knees weakened, star and ice
Collide in vision, unveils time
Ripping torment is expressed
crushes lungs, burning chest

Cooling bones, glacier carves
Peaks before me, trembling arms
Melting path fades away
Forge again a debt to pay

Now it lies straight ahead
Extreme exhaustion, nearly dead
End of earth, limitless folds
Quest conquered, soul is cold
Retreating home riding high
up and down until one dies
Menace-maker is the light that grants false perception
