    We decided to manufacture it as a vinyl because of the great cover artwork by Claudio Bergamin - with the triumvirate of global power on it.

    This is the shirt we did even before this first album was released. We still have some in stock, but they will NOT be reprinted. The first picture with the logo is the printing on front, the grey one with "The Flood is Coming" on the back.

    These are original (European) Fruit of the Loom quality shirts with a very good, durable screen print. Everyone of us still has his first one and it still looks excellent. :)

about

The self-titled debut album was released via Metropolitan Edge / SAOL / H'Art in Europe (Cat.-Nr. CD: SAOL 098 / Vinyl: SAOL 105), via Sickbangers Distribution in Chile.

Press reactions:
"Excellently played, smartly arranged and refreshing." (Jakob Kranz - Metal Hammer Germany)

"One of the most promising German newcomers." (Legacy Magazine Germany)

"This album does not let up for a second. From start to finish it is a relentless, politically furious, technical, melodic, Thrash assault." (metal-temple.com)

"The bombastic thrash sound is raw, angry, and distorted – and marks an impressive debut." (metalglory.de)

"A varied, discreetly technical piece of thrash metal with an ideal sound. The guitars shine with complex riffs, ingeniously set overtones and fantastic solos. There are tons of details to discover in each song." (stormbringer.at)

"It sounds great." (Randy Black - Primal Fear, Duskmachine, Ex-Annihilator)

"Great power/thrash metal. I'm impressed." (Anton Reisenegger - Criminal, Lock Up, Pentagram)

Track Name: Empire
Cold are the watcher's eyes
Blank without compassion
Severe is the storm that's sown
Sweeping away what's weak

Black lights flicker in the dark
We are the ones forsaken
The impact of the brutal assault
Resonates throughout all our lands

Man-made things with no shape nor shadow
Assail their own womb to annihilate
Let us mourn for never morrow
should dawn upon us

Bless us for the one has come
Pride and act of creation
To undo the impure
Perfect the tainted's doom

Man-made things with no shape nor shadow
Assail their own womb to annihilate
Let us mourn for never morrow
should dawn upon us

We sacrifice freedom for no reason
Foretell our ruin and fade in lies
We are not prepared for the final season
Behold the blackness when all that's living dies

Burn the weak biomass
Turn the whole world into stone
Make it ours a barren waste
An empire without a throne
Empire

You stare into the abyss of death
The New Empire

Man-made things with no shape nor shadow
Assail their own womb to annihilate
Let us mourn for never morrow
should dawn upon us
a desolate fate

We sacrifice freedom for no reason
Foretell our ruin and fade in lies
We are not prepared for the final season
Behold the blackness when all that's living dies
Track Name: The Worm
Lines of men are marching in uniforms just gray
Faces are identical, we represent the One State
Calculating everything
Meals, sex and sleep
No names, just unique numbers
Of the very same breed

Skins in perfect unison
All our senses lie prone
We are the servants of nothingness

The essence of humanity makes mathematics fail
Propagating hollowness as ultimate salvation
Barricades to happiness
Tear the wall down
Absolute equation for the Benefactors nation

Skins in perfect unison
All our senses lie prone
We are the servants of nothingness
Feet resounding on stone
The hourglass ever turned
We are born and buried, we're the army undead

Skins in perfect unison
All our senses lie prone
We are the servants of nothingness
Feet resounding on stone
The final hour has arrived
The Great Benefactors will be done

Kill the worm
We kill the worm
Track Name: Revolt of Reason
Never heal, never cure or deliver
Break their rules, claim your rights by complete dissent
Dressed in red, marching on with clean-shaven heads
Boycott the Junta, their dirty dastardly decadence

Rise and revolt

Bleeding sins spill their blood on their medals
Widened eyes witness violence the media cannot show
Free our minds but the hands they are shackled tight
Rise and revolt soon the world will see

Rise and revolt

Tens of thousands follow our silent call to rise against
Long years have passed, I know
But the oppressors are now due to surrender

This despotic domination will come to an end
To disconnect the worlds net won't make them repent
Teachings of the awakened one, pure unearthly desires
Hope was still left - so we conspired

Tens of thousands follow our constant call to rise against
Long years have passed, I know
But the oppressors are now due

They are blind and mentally defiled
All fears will pass away
As the oppressors are now due
To surrender
Track Name: Blood Runs Black
Take all the colors, melt them to gray
And my soul to black
Touch my old wounds
fresh, wet and bleeding
Standing back to back
Turning page by page
Can't find the end
Just that tomorrow's gone
Kneeling at the edge
Drinking your sorrows
I fear a new night's dawn

Consumed by the self
I failed to see the gray shades' embrace

Fend off the horror, the shaping shadow
Save my captive soul
Its rule is drawing nearer
The fragile's cure is freedom's foe

Blood Runs Black

Gorge the world's chaos
Bath in disorder
A maelstrom of doom
Grief is a weapon
Dreams are ascending
Colorless in bloom
Drawing sword by sword
Dull are your eyes
Staring leeched and poured
Judgement by the bloodless
This is the end
Screaming for the god-sent

Consumed by the self
I failed to see our flame was erased

Look into the mirror, a shattered puzzle
That breaks the healing light of day
The broken spirits' army
Will unknowingly lead the way

Alert the guardian
Tempt your fate
Challenge him at the spirit gate
Bow and suffer, stand and call
Into Lethe's stream you'll fall

Blood runs black
My blood runs black
Track Name: My Revolution
I am the prophet praising the two
I foresee your sorrows and all your pain
Close are my looks my analysis
I examine visions and will maintain

I'm the master of illusion
A devil in disguise
As the master of your bloodline
I control and plan your life
You're breeding and feeding
We're just deceiving your flesh and blood

They innocently believe the lies
We justify by blindly holding on
To principles of the enlightened past
And the rusty great old chain where we don't belong

I am your agent I promise you youth
I fulfil the dreams you have been denied
Kneel to my rule my imperative
And the power of the digital eye

Why do we trust in man
despite his words of deceit
A false front with an innocent grin
but still we are believing

It's not a necessity to arrange life
My revolution has not yet begun
I'm floating with current but
Crave not to be my father's son

Believe the lies
We justify by blindly holding on
To principles of the enlightened past
And the great chain full of rust where we don't belong
Track Name: Impurity
Thick smoke in our green lungs, toxic our misdeeds
We are starving for salvation but bite the hand that feeds
Ancient shapes are changing because of what we've done
Put all disputes aside, our perdition has begun

The tree of life is sere
The divine fruitful garden dead

The new world's old king is no more
We all praise the scepter's heir of war
See the populace is wearing the crown
It is made of black fluid and thickly dripping down

Another step to our final rule is near
Disrespect and irreverence we fear

Traitors to deliverance disrespect the cure
Their souls will burn in heaven as hell lies obscure
The numbers ever growing, to save the sinless seed
To dry our weeping wounds and still the tears we bleed

The tree of life is sere
The divine fruitful garden dead

The new world's old king is no more
We all praise the scepter's heir of war
See the populace is wearing the crown
It is made of black fluid and thickly dripping down

We propagate destruction
And violate the contract of creation and man
The flood is coming
The levees are breached
Come and cleanse our impurity
Track Name: Spores of Greed
The South is withered and poor
While the North is bankrupt and cold
Your false god seduced the world
His poison cripples the freedom of thought

Raise your hands, drive in thorn by thorn
Into the pure flesh of this rotting place, war-torn

The East is raging with fire
And the West will be set ablaze
Bills burn, green turns to sand
The system's failing, a new age at hand

Clench your fists, drive in thorn by thorn
Into the pure flesh of this rotting place, war-torn

Profiled
Classified
Surveyed
Analyzed

Clench your fists, drive in thorn by thorn
Into the pure flesh of this rotting place, war-torn
Take your knife, cut the noose around our neck
Get down and smash the spores of greed for they are red
Track Name: We are Sin
Our new eyes work with blind perfection
Behind the veil that gives protection
We accuse and blame the giving
Detest the free will of the living

Do you follow old trails and wonder
All the others are gone
The dark, the fear, a distant beacons fire
The knives, they are drawn

Eat the worms and testify
Truth made of a single lie
Insects hide beneath the snakes
Devouring as new life awakes

Do you sail on wild troubled waters
Where the others have gone
The void, the fear, a distant beacons fire
The knives, they are drawn

Father, we are sin
For going where no one has been

Father, we are sin
For going where no one has been
Mother, put on the crown
We decide ourselves what we own

Father, we are sin
Our redemption lies within

Father, we are sin
We stab and kill with a grin
Track Name: Perfect Reign
I grab your hand and make you have a close look
What do you see inside this black box book
Carefully scribbled thoughts of a perfect reign
All their ideals are pre-planted in our brains

I got swollen eyes and red crusty ties
Lips and mouth cracked open
Longing for true freedom to rise

For the machinery's running
And my body it demands
But that self-imposed religion won't lead us to the Promised Land

To believe or to betray
This spiritual consistency is just a frame
For these fool's incarnation of decay
And mankind's believe in others blame

Now tell me again
What's inside this book of rule and salvation
It's their vision of tomorrows time
Versatile bodies with constructed mind design

For the machinery's running
My very soul it demands
But that self-imposed religion will fall by its own makers hands

To believe or to betray
This spiritual consistency is just a frame
For these fool's incarnation of decay
And mankind's believe in others blame

It's a perfect reign
Track Name: The Stench
All the earth was waste and darkness
Then came the light of day
A firmament created by a Spirits will you say
Then the waters gathered so dry land appeared
There is no proof but it's a paradox to destroy

This is for the prostitutes of inevitevolution
The slow swiftness of your decay as retribution

Time is his invention, life in the air and sea
Let them multiply and feed the beasts of the earth
At last man was formed to dominate the world
But none could see to what the seventh day gives birth

This is for the prostitutes of inevitevolution
The slow swiftness of your decay as retribution

Where's your god?
Where is your god?

Passive obedience to the great shapeless one
Denying decisions to keep all you have
All that's named holy now weeps in the dark
Death is our future and we all wear the mark

This is for the prostitutes of inevitevolution
The slow swiftness of your decay as retribution
This is for the prostitutes of inevitevolution
I already smell the foul stench of purification

Where is your god?
Where the fuck is your god?
