about

The band would like to thank:

Luke, Joe, and Dan for all their assistance putting the EP together, Boulty for all the practice space and time, Jonny and Alex for their years of service, Beardy Mike for his artistic input (and patience), Islander and the NCS crew for their undying support, Gary at Bite Radius Designs for the killer imagery, Phil Core for all the shows and Miranda Yardley for all the advice, Andy Deathwave for the hospitality, Arobas Music for the software that makes it possible for us to write songs.

And, of course, thanks to all the bands we've had the pleasure of knowing and playing shows with over the last few years - Seth and Becoming The Archetype, Sahil and Demonic Resurrection, Michiel and The Monolith Deathcult, Hal and Talanas, Ernestas and Awakening Sun, Joe and Chapters, Alex and Narcotic Death... and all the boys in Taken By The Tide, Twilight's Embrace, Spires, Ethereal, Haerken, Agonyst... and everyone else we've forgotten!

Repeated exposure to this music was found to cause insanity in laboratory mice.

Track Name: The Chronophage
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LYRICS

Every second of every day
We dwell beneath the shadow of the blade
Waiting for the axe to fall
But some of us exist, in ignorance and bliss
Unaware of what approaches, and unable to resist

The hunter, the horror, the never-ending hunger

Time waits for no man, and no man is its master

You cannot stop what you cannot see
You cannot kill what does not bleed

Behold the chronophage, the devourer of dimensions
Witness the beast, longing to feast, in its many-angled prison

Every single breath you take
Drags you one step closer to the grave
Into the gaping maw
It preys upon your weakness, it feeds on your despair
A monster without mercy, a predator without compare

It hunts you, it haunts you, you bear its mark upon you

And there is no escape, nowhere that it cannot find you

You cannot run and you cannot hide
You cannot rest til the day you die

Behold the chronophage, the devourer of dimensions
Witness the beast, longing to feast, in its many-angled prison

Breath by breath, and day by day
We struggle against our own decay

There is no salvation, no freedom, no hope of release
No mercy in the maw of the monster
No escape from the belly of the beast

Behold the chronophage, the devourer of dimensions
Witness the beast, longing to feast, in its many-angled prison

Behold the enemy, the ancient beast of entropy

LYRICS

Monstrous are those, who do monstrous deeds
In the name of king and country
Justifying their guilt and their greed
For the greater good and glory

Breeding inhumanity, disgusted and despised
Feeding their conspiracy (corrupted) as they manipulate our lives

Force-fed lies, and hollow pride
By the ones who claim to leads us
Watching as they rob us blind
Choking on the filth they feed us

Breeding inhumanity, disgusted and despised
Feeding their conspiracy (corrupted) as they manipulate our lives

Parasites with empty eyes, hypocrites in high-born places
Laughing as they bleed us dry, never showing their true faces

Breeding inhumanity, disgusted and despised
Feeding their conspiracy (corrupted) as they manipulate our lives

Feeding on our misery, with their deception and their lies

Track Name: Invasive Exotics

LYRICS

Cry havoc and slip the dogs of war
Driven by the bloodlust, of the self-proclaimed superior

To the victor go the spoils, to the strongest the right to survive
Such is the natural order (of life), to propagate and multiply

Desperate times need desperate measures
Turning us against each other

We always fear what we don't understand
Desperate to control what we cannot comprehend

It's only human nature
To try and fight the future
And hold on to the power that we've claimed

Divide and conquer, cast your bread upon the water
Pass your judgement, cast your stones
You will reap the harvest you have sown

This is a war of attrition, where nothing is forbidden
And kill or be killed (do what thou will) is the whole of the law

Action will provoke reaction
Mutually assured destruction

We learn to kill what cannot be cured
Imposing our will, on the imperfect, on the impure

It's only human nature
To try and fight the future
And hold on to the power that we've claimed
And yet when all is said and done
When all of our battles have been won
Look at how far we have fallen
Look at what monsters we've become

Survival of the fittest
Invasion of the exotic

It's only human nature
To try and fight the future
And hold on to the power that we've claimed
And yet when all is said and done
When all of our battles have been won
Look at how far we have fallen
Look at what monsters we've become

Look at what monsters we've become
