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

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

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
