bcb723 Looking back, the scariest part for me of Twin Peaks: The Return was an image I can't shake. The end of Episode 15 - where the Gatekeeper stands alone in the hotel parking lot, face obscured in shadows. The image gives you pause, because you know there is unseen horror under the surface. A similar figure, face obscured, stands in the distance on the cover of "Annihilated" & the same uneasy feeling comes over me as I hear the brutality of this music. Totally terrifying - just the way I like it. Favorite track: Toothgrinder.

thecombinatorax It's like Frontierer's less chaotic yet more deranged cousin. Favorite track: Toothgrinder.

the_ashtonian It is not only the heaviest thing I have ever heard, but it is also one of the the most relentless and unforgettable experiences I have had with an album from start to finish.

9/10 Favorite track: Synchronicity.

Annihilated 02:38
Step in from the brink But only to look back That was too easy There is no challenge worthy Burning the bridge I stand on Tear up my map home Draw a new one on my skin The remedy is easy When you have the right recipe Self destruction, in its most simple form Ruin my body from inside out Make the pain in my mind And in my soul Visible on my skin A burning, stabbing in my guts And a sadness in you as you watch My beautiful performance made Especially for none and al
2.
Looking back, not ever looking in My mistakes are for others to understand If I made them it was on purpose A less for you What you desereve Was it worth it? The pointless struggle Against yourself Who are you? Who am I even talking to? Find yourself at the bottom of a bottle At the end of a line On the edge of a blade The is revenge unto myself You cannot be faltered They are wrong They are weak And you are stray It takes courage to destroy yourself Mindfulness as a tool Of annihilation The beautiful struggle
3.
We can last today But we cant survive this way Wrinkled and crumpled up Our bodies will starve But our mines wont give up Always aching never breaking For the lives we are supposed to lead Resting every night with those Who are now resting without peace Circling through my mind For something I can find A little piece of the divine But that’s just a sign of these desperate times Do we accept our existence like this? Or do we leave what we once loved behind? You were the catalyst But now I let you go To drift in the universe In perfect syncronicity, in infinite perfection Part of everything and intrinsic to nothing Don’t give in, because they are stronger than you Go down fighting, they’ll remember the truth
4.
Calling for a new beginning Burn the verses of the past Fight through the ash Breathe in the embers They are the resurrection The fire will light once again Inside of you Blow out a new inferno Nothing can withstand its energy The cycle will continue In beautiful and everlasting synchronicity Enter equilibrium while remaining At the centre of the universe

Betrayer 02:20
Like Lucifer I grew my horns, when I rejected paradise Damn myself to a life of thorns, then maybe i'd call it even Not deserving of that life Bury myself under the smog Masochistic life of pain My betrayer Born with sin Yours and his Your god is dead We have killed him Just for the sake Of our selfish thoughts Everyone born with a sin It's yours and his His only son Punish myself for existing Create a hell around me Torture my body With anything I can find Close the door behind me
6.
Toothgrinder 02:45
I dragged the body from road to rome Under the floor boards its carcass resides Lying in pieces i place you inside I stretch an image of her on me, I beg to see that silver light dissipate That black sermon followed me, I predicted the most righteous act I stretch an image of her on me I pray to see that silver light dissipate Every day is all the same It's the same Cracked ribs, bloodied and broken The soul will rest so all can see We're all just begging to be free Under the floorboards, his body it rests His body at the rest

Eigengrau 02:16
Don’t just the perfect life You cant see what lies behind The time spent to forge that strength Beauty exists only through struggle But mine was not Plain to the eye Until I painted The perfect picture Pull myself away from heaven Paint everything black Grow my horns Make myself ugly Paint my skin with maps Back to the old ways Disappear forever
8.
Bête Noire 02:46
Do you hate me? Trying to find The purpose of this lesson you have left Searching in the dark corners of my mind To wander forlorne, is my future Dedicate my life to find absolution Losing the ghost inside me Leave me to endlessly ask The question why What is the point of living now Do you hate me? I still feel you next to me.
9.
I felt like I was the one who should fix everything The impossible weight of my conviction Crushing my feeble shoulders There was nothing to be done but I struggled on Scratching and clawing myself out of the hole Gasping for air in the midst of the black smog The curse of the dreamer. The torment of hope Its much easier to fall back with your eyes closed. Victory is never painless Obstruction to the path leads to the new path Find the route to glory You cant stray if there is no defined way Create your own morality Only you can judge yourself
10.
Release 03:00
Just because we know we exist Doesn’t lift us from the ranks of the beasts Fighting a constant and bitter battle With our own, overblown egos Pointless existence Self awareness is an illness This merciless curse That both frees us from ignorance But shackles us to the Constant contemplation of our Pointless existence What is man to the ape Man is the most primitive He does not know his place Man exists only as a bridge To the ubermensch Pointless existence Futile efforts To bring meaning To this empty life True strength Comes from facing The truth behind their lies My spirit will burst the shackles on my mind And rip through the decay of form You are not my audience The words of the ubermensch I will release myself from the burden Of this life
11.
Portrait 05:29
The smell of cold, scent of the rain Always that lingering feeling I will see you again My dreams are like torture Every night the same You running away from me Like some kind of game Alone I am standing in a crowded place When over in the distance, I see your face Come back Dreams are all we have together now So why do you run from me? Its getting hard to bare when im awake In a frantic panic I slip through the swelling mass Why must you run from me, everytime this dream so crass You said we’d be together till the bitter end Remember our sacred pact? That promise you did not defend.

Beautiful shimmering light Bursting through the trees Beckoning me forward Into woods I have not seen Don’t look down, that’s way they say But these cracks say they know me If I'd known, I'd have been A different person I wouldn’t be covered in scars Or I wouldn’t have to show them I wouldn’t show my scars I could move on with life Without straying I follow on Never looking back My life layed out before me As I walk between the cracks The dark is full of wonder As it creeps to shroud the light But it doesn’t have the strength To beat me as I fight This never ending battle Of me against myself Live to fight another day Or stand and face this hell Shimmering light
