Obsessed with wealth,
yet bankrupt morally
blinded by a sense of superiority
Belief of entitlement as human beings -
entwined with the detriment of all living things
Why are we here, fucking up everything?
Compassion is swept beneath the carpet
by unkind hands severed from their conscience,
to celebrate a life without fear of consequence
We can hear choirs singing, those well refined alibis,
while hell on earth is realized.
The food chain became the chains of slavery
Why is innocence living caged in suffering?
from Volume I,
released January 30, 2015
Engineered and mixed by Dean Bailey at Cloud Studios, Cape Town, South Africa
This one was a slow burn for me. Repeat listens are essential I think to really appreciate it. That said, if someone asked me to introduce or describe black metal to them, I’d give them this album. They’ll either run screaming or be a fan of the genre for life. Metallurgical Fire
"Curse These Metal Hands" parlays the UK bands' chemistry into a record which—for all its tinnitus-inducing ferocity and elegiac arrangements—practically drips with transcendent joy. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 18, 2019
