SkunkBeatManiac Old school Death/Thrash like early Haunted and Carnal Forge. Fast, uplifting and catchy. There is a 50/50 split between fast and mid-speed songs in this album all fast songs and some mid-speed ones are good. Favorite track: Face of Hate.

Face of Hate 03:03
Throughout our history One remains a mystery After every blackened phase we will always find a face The face of hate, won’t die The face of hate, will rule The dictator of death The death of dictators The face of hate The moment of truth The moment of lies The same illusion Who could ever tell what words mean Behind the dollar smile There’s no way out No way to turn to The face of evil The face of sorrow The face of death The face of hate, won’t die The face of hate, will rule

Shame 03:59
No life is what it’s supposed to be, pain and greed We don’t know better, we’ve never seen The only way to make someone feel is to crush a knee And burn his family tree See how our history repeats itself You cry and point someone else And avoid the hangman One joke, one laughter, after a corner Let this be a lesson, the only way to win That’s how I see you That’s how you suffocate the voices and choices Means to an end You’re the winner, the world is yours I know how you see me That’s why I say… No life is what it’s supposed to be, pain and greed We don’t know better, we’ve never seen The only way to make someone feel is to crush a knee And burn his family tree One joke, one laughter, after a corner Let this be a lesson, the only way to win No life is No life is what it’s supposed to be, pain and greed We don’t know better, we’ve never seen The only way to make someone feel is to crush a knee And burn his family tree

Fury 04:37
I hear screaming of the dead We have a voice in our heads! I don’t know why I feel the need to hate you and you And I am furious! I opened up a grave to the past And all I saw was bones, skulls and fire Deadly serpent’s black fire Roses on the floor Corpses dancing in black blood of the king of the rats Shouting IA! IA! Need to feel something else is inevitable I am furious I am furious I fear nothing! I decide my own side Dragging my sickle through the gates Slaughtering the keeper And ending the everlasting, the warmongering, bloodshedding Lie of lies I feel the fire inside We have nowhere to run! I see four horsemen riding, killing you and you And they are furious I still see witches casting spells, eating children off their parents Secret evil rites And gatherings of black magic Rising dark forces Lords of chaos feast on black blood of the king of the rats Shouting IA! Fire I opened up a grave to the past And all I saw was bones, skulls and fire Deadly serpent’s black fire Need to feel something else is inevitable I am furious I am furious I fear nothing! I decide my own side Dragging my sickle through the gates Slaughtering the keeper And ending the everlasting, the warmongering, bloodshedding Lie of lies Lie of lies!

My land shall burn Burn this land My kind will die Check the world through my eyes You will see, the horrors No morning sun shines on my face Darkness Check the world through my eyes You will fall on your knees Darkness, please fill me Forever yours I will be See nothing before you suffer, the horrors Joy is no more, I feel sadness, I wish darkness... ...fills me Dark oblivion Darkness, fill me Check the world through my eyes You will see, the horrors No morning sun shines on my face Darkness Check the world through my eyes You will fall on your knees Darkness, please fill me Forever yours I will be My land shall burn

Headshot 04:28
Thunder war rising, forced to fight the foes I’ve never seen Their enemies hold such powers we can never match or defeat The ones I’ve never seen try to rip me apart I gotta be faster Head! Shot! Thunder war rising I am stranded, there’s no way out Head! Shot! I’m going down No regrets, no compromise By my hand, I lose this fight Choose your side, mine is suicide No other way to escape this day You’ll face the horrors life offers Torture in the past and the future to come Now you hear the silence, now you see the darkness Head! Shot! Thunder war rising I am stranded, there’s no way out Head! Shot! I’m going down No regrets, no compromise By my hand, I lose this fight Iron king, no ironic thing Fields of gold just growing old, but not for me This is the end of all hope Choose your side, mine is suicide No other way to escape this day Domination over men The young, the innocent and no one cares Now you hear the silence, now you see the darkness Head! Shot! Thunder war rising I am stranded, there’s no way out Head! Shot! I’m going down No regrets, no compromise By my hand, I lose this fight Head! Shot! Head! Shot! Headshot!

This day I'm here, one day I'm not Few days to live, nothing more to give I no more feel the difference between sorrow and happiness I will go to a place called Never-Was I want it and I won’t use any force All who I’ll leave back here will remember me no more You, you’ll remember me no more This day I'm here, one day I'm not I refuse to pray, I suffer if I stay On this side, on the outside This day I'm here, one day I'm not This day I'm here, one day I'm not… …alive I was lying on the floor My body pouring down the wall I was drowning in the blackest of the seas Finally getting free After this coming week No one remembers me That day I was there, but now I'm not Now it's all black and I don't wanna come back To the outside, to the false side That day I was there, but now I'm not That day I was there, but now I'm not… …alive

My loneliness has left me Seeking solace from the dead And through your own passage you shall meet with your true self I’ll wash my life away in the waters of this river Joining the grave of my forebearers And they speak to me in an ancient tongue A language without words Known by all kinds Like a lightning bolt struck through my spine They reveal me their secrets They're taking me with them I don't know your name But I feel you're present Mother, reclaim me When I return to where I've come from And I shall call you Gaia Through the darkest moment All that I'll leave behind A stranded empty shell Bathing in the morning light It would have been a beautiful day to be alive Nevertheless, a good day to die I don't know your name But you guide my way Father, light my path As I step into the unknown I have waited for this moment For so very long Father, I am afraid to go alone I have waited for so long

Quest for something more Is an on-going fight Seeking is war But I know that sight Look down, behind, under, over You'll find it Can't miss it It's where you breath and suffocate Down, behind, through the looking glass I'll find my Loch Ness Still, I know how things Crash a wall, burn to ground, rust to dust Burst in flames, get torn apart in pieces Diseases finish the rest Nest of needful things holds its breath forever Nothing leaks to this world I wish for more Your mind goes numb I seek for sure But you know it's dead Imagination Not enough You open the door I show you the end That thing too shallow to find interesting Wish for more and nothing appears You only see what your mind creates Mind breaks in its prison cell I live for something more Wake me! Go! I wish for more Your mind goes numb I seek for sure But you know it's dead Imagination Not enough You open the door I die!

I am the voice of dark and cold You are the man without the fire Elements of a dying mind you live in, give in, cry in We are one I am not fading You cannot say the words you feel Suffocation, your word’s unreal Cry for help and I watch you bleed And show how dark your heart can be Pressure grows, your world falls apart Close our eyes All we see All we feel Is another hopeless memory The one we suffer Is growing from anger, pain! My blue eyes turn To a darker shade of black I am the one without a voice Living inside a pitch black mass Now you choke me to the edge One day I’ll show you wrath Now, the deepest arise Forces us to act Reminds why the smallest won’t do great deeds Close our eyes All we see All we feel Is another hopeless memory The one we suffer Is growing from anger, pain Of a thousand dreams And my blue eyes turn To a darker shade of black
