about

We've been working on this for over four years. We bet you'll hear the big step-up regarding our songwriting and the (again: self-produced) sound.

Track Name: Spiral
Down this winding black road, down to hell
I am walking, breathing sulphur clouds
Stripped of everything I had to sell
Yearning for the lord to put me out

My fear, my fright, my ordeal, his delight
I’ll bow my head and shed my pride

And he’ll rid me of my hurt tonight
Tonight

Up the asphalt spiral, up the drain
Following the sunlight shining through
I’m relieved of sorrow, loss and pain
Knowing that he loaded it on you

Your fear, your fright, your ordeal, his delight
Mark my words, shed your pride

Take a walk down the winding road tonight

Your fear, your fright, your ordeal, his delight
Mark my words, shed your pride

Take a walk down the winding road tonight

Take a walk down the winding road – tonight!
Take a walk down the winding road – tonight!
Take a walk down the winding road – tonight!
Take a walk down the winding road, down to hell!
Track Name: Dirt
Behold this squealing herd, we’re
Wrenching, digging in the dirt
Unclean, contaminated
Loving every flake of it

No matter how much it will hurt
We’ll keep on wrenching in the dirt
Loving each and every flake

Downward, dirt is what we crave
We keep digging our own grave
Downward, dirt is what we crave
We keep digging our own grave

Our snouts down in the smut, we
Snort the soil and chew the mud
Breathe the foul stench of the earth
Enjoying this Elysian mirth

No matter how much it will hurt
We’ll keep on digging in the dirt
Loving each and every flake

Downward, dirt is what we crave
We keep digging our own grave
Downward, dirt is what we crave
We keep digging our own grave

No matter how much it will hurt
We’ll keep on wrenching in the dirt
No matter how much it will hurt
We’ll keep on digging in the dirt

Downward, dirt is what we crave
We keep digging our own grave
Downward, dirt is what we crave
We keep digging our own grave

We’ll keep on digging in the dirt
Track Name: Withered
Say nothing
Your eyes betray your mind
There’s nothing left to keep you
From leaving me behind

Yes, I know it’s not over, we’ll be best friends now
And yes, I ought not to act like this is the end now

I cannot hold you but neither can I let you go
I cannot hold you but neither can I let you go
Guess it’s true what they say, everything withers and dies
...and dies

No, nothing
Makes me cry no tears
No longer prone to heartache
Dragging me down for years

Baby, I’d like to let you know I’m not cryin’
Worn out, raddled and cut, our bond is just dyin’

I could not hold you but neither could I let you go
I could not hold you but neither could I let you go
Guess it’s true what they say, everything withers and dies
Guess it’s true what they say, everything withers and dies
Guess it’s true what they say, even love withers and dies

Your eyes betray your mind
Your eyes betray your mind
There’s nothing left to keep you
From leaving me behind
You’ll make me cry no tears
No longer prone to heartache
Dragging me down for years

I could not hold you but neither could I let you go
I could not hold you but neither could I let you go
Guess it’s true what they say, everything withers and dies
Guess it’s true what they say, everything withers and dies
Guess it’s true what they say, even love withers and dies
Track Name: Dependence
My fumbling hands hold my
With rattling teeth I bite my tongue
I yearn for fuel, my reason slips
Dependence makes me come undone

The hero of this ruthless war
I’ll smash the pain’s sardonic grin
The pain that’s hollowing out my core
That’s waiting just to suck me in

My eye of glass lights up the dark
With trembling fingers I play my game
In just a minute I will find
Another enemy to set aflame

The hero of this ruthless war
I’ll smash the pain’s sardonic grin
The pain that’s hollowing out my core
That’s waiting just to suck me in

Dependence subdues my flesh
Dependence surmounts my soul
Dependence poisoning my blood
Dependence shattering my bones

My thirst and hunger used to rule
Now I feel more than quenched and fed
Addiction curbs my need for sleep
I’ll see to that when I am dead

The hero of this ruthless war
I’ll smash the pain’s sardonic grin
The pain that’s hollowing out my core
That’s waiting just to suck me in

Dependence subdues my flesh
Dependence surmounts my soul
Dependence poisoning my blood
Dependence shattering my bones

Dependence subdues my flesh
Dependence surmounts my soul
Dependence poisoning my blood
Dependence shattering my bones
Track Name: Level
We’re the party fun-defenders
Enjoy our animal regime
Full-scale hard-on pretenders
With flat-rate celebration schemes
Sobriety’s our main contender
We tap the beer and liquor streams
Come on, no mercy, no surrender
Ignore your brain’s and liver’s screams

Now open your arms
Your mouth and legs, too
What you long for is coming
Your poisonous fuel
Let it flood all your sorrows
Let it change your view
Today, there’s no tomorrow
Only sacred fuel

The fat that our new countries render
Explodes our thin, high-tension seams
Clothing labels turn from stout to slender
To fufil our adephageous dreams
Moderateness, our true splendor
Takes excellence to a new extreme
Sub-par is now the modern standard
Once mediocre, now supreme

Now open your arms
Your mouth and legs, too
What you long for is coming
Your poisonous fuel
Let it drown all your shame
Let it blur your view
There is no yesterday
Only sacred fuel

Now open your arms
Your mouth and legs, too
What you long for is coming
Your poisonous fuel
Let it drown all your shame
Let it blur your view
There is no yesterday
Only sacred fuel
Track Name: Vagrant
Crimson dust burns in the morning sky
Lighting up the open desert land

My hands are on the steering wheel
Peace of mind is what I feel

Driving where black havoc vultures fly
Waiting for a life thirst to end

They won’t get me when I die

I am in
For a ride
With the devil on my side
I am in
For a ride
With the devil at my right-hand side, yeah

The wind swirls around my smiling eyes
Lighting up the cigarette in my hand

Keep the engine growling on
Keep the landscape rolling on

Hey, you vagrant, there on the roadside
Where’re you going, where’re you headed, my friend?

Let me take you for a ride

Come on in
Take a ride
With a devil on your side
Come on in
Take a ride
With the devil at your left-hand side

Come on in
Take a ride

Come on in
Take a ride
With a devil on your side
Come on in
Take a ride
With the devil at your left-hand side
Track Name: Incandescence
Out of the veld I’m shooting through
Out of my way, the pedal’s down
Out of the blue I’m rushing in
A rollin’ blaze to burn your town

Blazin’ blue above my head
Flashing red inside my mind
Incandescent hell on wheels
...hell on wheels

Out of the veld I’m shooting through
Out of my way, the pedal’s down
Out of the blue I’m rushing in
A rollin’ blaze to burn your town

Blazin’ blue above my head
Flashing red inside my mind
Incandescent hell on wheels
...hell on wheels

Gray is all I leave behind
Ash is all I leave behind
Track Name: Limbus
You’ve tried to fix the breakage
You’ve tried to mend the wheel
You’ve tried to get back to the race
You’ve tried and tried to make it real

You’ve tried to break the cycle
You’ve tried to shed your fears
You’ve tried to end the silence
You’ve tried and tried to dry your tears

Can't move on
Can’t go back
At the end
Of your track

You’ve tried to re-spark the fire
You’ve tried to grab the reins
You’ve tried to reach the wire
You’ve tried and tried again in vain

Can't move on
Can’t go back
At the end
Of your track

Can't move on
Can’t go back
At the end
Of your track
Track Name: Jane`s
As every night, she’s at her favourite whiskey bar
Her shadow leads a life of its own
Since that bitter day it’s been her rampant king
On that dirty stool for a throne

Since that bitter day
Since that bitter day
Since that bitter day it’s been her rampant king

It’s late again, she leaves the bar and stumbles home
And hears it follow through the cold
The clacking clatter of her shadow’s cloven hoof
Makes her feel so helpless, weak and old

The force came out of nowhere

Since that bitter day
Since that bitter day
Since that bitter day it’s been her rampant king

She’s trembling on her way to the railway line
This time she wants to get it done
Something stops her as she’s right between the rails
A few more steps and she’d be gone
Held back her shadow’s clawing teeth and nails
She can’t turn around and can’t move on

The force came out of nowhere
Track Name: Wolverine
I’m a savage, not to be tamed
Angel feathers dress my head
The one to leave you trampled and maimed
The invisible brute that you dread

I’m a wolverine
Through and through

You do not see me running
You cannot hear me coming
You do not see me running
You cannot hear me

I’m a vibrant menace to your will
Combatant to my barbarous core
With the tip of the devil’s sweet drill
I’ll tap your desire for more

I’m a wolverine
Through and through

You do not see me running
You cannot hear me coming
You do not see me running
You cannot hear me

You do not see me running
Suddenly I’m stuck inside
You cannot hear me coming
Gone again before you get the chance to fight
You will not stop my feeding
On your morale, I swallow whole
You can’t prevent my breeding
Despiteful intents within your feeble soul

I’m your tempting twin to be blamed
A force sowing fear in your head
The one to set your conscience aflame
I will come when you’re tucked in your bed

I’m a wolverine
Through and through

You still don’t see me running
You still can’t hear me coming
You still don’t see me running
You still can’t hear me

You still don’t see me running
Suddenly I’m stuck inside
You still can’t hear me coming
Gone again, you’ll never get the chance to fight
You will not stop my burning
Your ideals down to filthy needs
You can’t prevent my turning
These new born intents into vile deeds
Track Name: Damage
Waiting for the big bang
Your punishment to come
Yearning for the big bang
Been waiting for so long
Craving for the big bang
Seems like it never comes
Aching for the big bang
Been waiting far too long

Can’t stand it any longer
I’ll arm my tools of war


Waiting for the big bang
For justice to be done
Yearning for the big bang
Been waiting for so long
Craving for the big bang
Seems like it won’t be done
Aching for the big bang
Been waiting far too long

Can’t take it any longer
I’ll arm my tools of war

Who waits will wait forever

Can’t stand it any longer
I’ll arm my tools of war
Can’t stand it any longer
I’ll arm my tools of war
Can’t take it any longer
I’ll arm my tools of war
Can’t take it any longer
I’ll arm my tools of war
Track Name: Black Fuel
Nobody stops this train
Now that it’s a-rollin‘
A monstrous serpent
Made of steel
It spits out black ash rain
The exhaust clouds keep growin’
Breathe in, you servant
And close the deal

When it comes it is coming for you
It will turn you into sacred black fuel
When it comes it is coming for you
It will turn you into sacred...
Black fuel

Nobody stops this train
Now that it’s a-rollin‘
It spits out black ash rain
The exhaust clouds keep growin’
A monstrous serpent
Made of steel
Breathe in, you servant
And close the deal

When it comes it is coming for you
It will turn you into sacred black fuel
When it comes it is coming for you
It will turn you into sacred...

Feel the snake crawl over you
As it turns you into sacred black fuel
Feel the snake crawl and coil over you
As it turns you into sacred black fuel

Feel the snake crawl over you
As it turns you into sacred...
Black Fuel

It crawls
It coils
Over you
It turns you into sacred
Black Fuel!
