Cold Black Hole You won’t see me But I see you Everywhere A plan to conquer Your mission, eradicate Planetary assignment Time to seal their fate About to transpire Your duty to fulfil Engage firepower The order from command is to destroy I keep Everything you say to me In my brain Voiceless silence Deep seeds Have been planted Now they Take control I feel Everything you did to me In my pain Causes violence Dead space Is implanted Brainwaves Cold black hole Earth to ground control We have containment Permission to execute Given green light We’re coming home This is no accident Eradication of earth We’re coming home We’re coming home We’re coming home Their still breathing Hear them scream in blood Hearts stop beating This is happening I keep Everything you say to me In my brain Voiceless silence Deep seeds Have been planted Now they Take control I feel Everything you did to me In my pain Causes violence Dead space Is implanted Brainwaves Cold black hole No sleep Nothing you can say to me Now the strain Breaks the silence Deep seeds Have been planted Now we’ve Lost control

Putrefaction of God Repent for pseudo salvation Your cash, paid to the lord Refrain from gratification I’ll grant you immunity On your knees Putrefaction Of God This is societal illusion This is the price we all pay This civilisation won’t learn This is collective confusion This is creation divine This is the world we deserve This is societal illusion This is the price we all pay This is collective confusion This civilisation won’t learn On your knees Putrefaction Of God Decay Putrid Though death I seek my vengeance For crime I see you prey Derisions Of human race Expose your sins to me I drink The blood of my children Step forward my child It’s time for me to feed! On your knees Putrefaction Of God Your god did this to me! Knees Putrefaction Of God

Cerebral Sanitation Loving denigration You suffer In silence Public manipulation Political lie Government surveillance Big brother Is watching National containment For your thought crimes Reprogramed for punishment Re-formed free from animosity Reframe from mentation Time tests all for religiosity Mind surveyed for pestilence Defamed for your curiosity The aim of reconditioning you Thousand years of stolen people Contractual bullets spray We act as if it’s all okay Burning people while they’re sleeping Servitude is what’s on offer Bleeding or comply Pay gratitude or you suffer Force fed, force bred, you’re led til you Die If you’re creator of this world, then you’re creator of this hell Denied If you’re creator of this world, then you’re creator of this hell (Clean background) War is calling Bleed for Freedom Sing the anthem Voice of reason Allegiance to a nation Blood Brother My Brother Cerebral sanitation Incendiary lines Gratefully dictated Life Under His guidance Guarded regulation Freedom is a lie Mind betrayed benevolent Re-born is this new society Proclaim this formation Free thought will not set you free Mind deprived of sustenance Defiance is an atrocity The aim of reconditioning you Never have the taste of freedom Intellect is torn away We act as if it’s all okay They can hear you, they can see you Resignation of all power Kneeling you comply Pay gratitude or you suffer Force fed, force bred, you’re led til you Die If you’re creator of this world, then you’re creator of this hell Denied If you’re creator of this world, then you’re creator of this hell (Clean background) Call the Heathens Fight like demons Sing the anthem We can beat them

The Tide Ground into dust Destroyed by time New life forms Old life dies Oceans collide Lying in wait All will be lost On the tide Turning of the tide will wash you clean See the light The dark demons Hiding in plain sight Free you mind Sink deeper Let go of your life Sink in blackness Beneath the sea Silent horror Set me free Drowned by fear and resentment Deeper and dark Tide of hatred Flesh is frozen There’s no tears of atonement Reaper of life Drifting away Dead with the tide Sunken eyes Breathe deeper Keeper of the lie Left to drown Seek Freedom Go without a fight Breathe your last breath

Lady Snowblood Streets flow red with blood from my blade. First they run and hide then they pay. Tears of wrath for the final time bound at birth to avenge a crime. Once they’re caught, one final act of attrition… They die! I will carry out honour crimes taking life with my blade. This is war! I will reclaim my mother’s conviction revenge her name. This is war! Eye for and eye ending my affliction one by one they will die. Haunted by time her eyes upon the heavens tears of Good-bye. Burn all the world desire comes from hatred through the eyes of a girl. Stained blood red snow. I will carry out honour crimes taking life with my blade. This is war! I will reclaim my mother’s conviction revenge her name. This is war! Waking in hell total domination the bodies she will fell. Stalking her prey relentless motivation each one she will slay. Burn all the world silent contemplation through the eyes of a girl. Stained blood red Snow. They will repay for acts of condemnation revenge will be hers. Cries go unheard the final confrontation the line ends with her. Burn all the world act out assassination through the eyes of a girl. Stained blood red snow. I will carry out honour crimes taking life with my blade. This is war! I will reclaim my mother’s conviction revenge her name. I will carry out honour crimes taking life with my blade. This is war! I will reclaim my mother’s conviction revenge her name. I will carry out honour crimes taking life with my blade. This is war! I will reclaim my mother’s conviction revenge her name This! Is! War!

Death, You Can’t Control Hear the call of eradication For my soul, call my extrication It means nothing to me now Be with god, he loves his children This can’t be true I hear the call I hear the call Imposing his law To end it all Embattled for my life Confide in your god Say your last words Prey til the end Spend your days counting your time Bide your time Your fear of death follows fear of life Your thoughts of death infest your mind Death, you can’t control Hear the call, hear my condemnation It means nothing to me now There’s no god, no one that kills them This can’t be true I hear the call I hear the call Imposing his law To end it all Embattled for my life Death, you can’t control Foreboding sky Foreboding sky This is my time Time You can’t control, death You can’t control, death You can’t control Death

Singularity Bred in a world of consumption Feted mind, state of decay Fed through tubes of compliance Ignorant life, wasting away Don’t wait for the wolves to go silent When the silence comes it’s too late Don’t wait for the wolves to go silent When the silence comes they’ve found their prey Trained in the name of violence Washed away in crimson rain Recourse for the fallen fathers Toiled earth Fade away De-evolved formation Eyeless drones they make Born by replication This is your life Download information Straight to your brain Project civilization You cannot hide Intravenous conception Science ameliorate man This is the life they’ve chosen for you You’re born a clone You die a clone De-evolved formation Eyeless drones they make Born by replication This is your life

Tartarus Below the heavens Judgment after death they receive Reparation to pay their dues The frozen lake of time begins to thaw Cold suspended life Mercy Trapped under the ice In seclusion The ultimate price Penetrate masses Infesting all life Mass confusion Infesting their minds Rebirth of torment Set him free

about

Embrace the Dawn – “The Effigist”

Two years after their first Promo EP, progressive metallers Embrace the Dawn are back with their first full length album “The Effigist”. Along with the bands founder Ben Tinker (Australia) on guitar, Embrace the Dawn sees a revamped line up sourced from around the globe. Denis Landry (Canada) takes up bass duties, Kevin Talley (USA) on drums, and Roger Isaksen (Norway) completes the line-up on vocals.

The album, mixed by acclaimed producer Eyal Levi, focuses mainly on Embrace the Dawn’s trademark progressive style, with it, The Effigist brings plenty of technical, thrash, and symphonic metal elements into the fray. Melodic machinations and tasty hooks combine with an onslaught of punishing riffs. The Effigist exhibits lyrical content often delving into a dystopian, political, thought provoking world, making for a cerebrally rewarding album.

Embrace the Dawn’s new album “The Effigist” is available now on iTunes, Google Play, and Bandcamp.
