TheBigDing These guys take great influence from Down and it shows, but the great part is that these guys have delivered an album the members of Down should be proud of. Some of the best riffs I've heard this year. Favorite track: Crossed.

FDJ Grainy hard rock/stoner riffage pushed by thunderous rhythms over which strong and equally grainy vocals are expertly delivered.
Good stuff for sure! Favorite track: Waste.

Track Name: Waste
Ironic verses and Freudian slips
I don’t want anymore
Meaningless phrases that try for a twist
I’ve heard it all before

Lines with no substance
Bland views take the piss
Your art’s a fucking bore, man!

Brother, your words aren’t real
Never doubt
That you can’t take a chance
On sworn disbelief
Brother, you can waste another day
Chasing shadows on your way
You can waste another day

Head in the clouds and your hope in the wind
Ready to take a bow
Waited for something that comes from within
But you’re all empty now

Yeah!

You can waste another day
Chasing shadows on your way
You can waste another day
Chasing shadows on your way

But you can’t take a chance
On sworn disbelief
Track Name: Crossed
Jesus has arrived
He’s got a sweet new ride
He came to cure the blind
Of the nightmares they see
Pestilence and famine
Can’t serve god and mammon
Time to reexamine
The things you believe

Father son and the holy ghost
Wanna bet who loves you the most
Crossed

Condemn, sanctify
Die for the sins that have cursed you
Crossed

Jesus has arrived
He’s got a sweet new ride
He came to cure the blind
Of the nightmares they see
Anger turns the tide
Righteous hatred by your side
Your savior will provide
Ask and you shall receive

Father son and the holy ghost
Wanna bet who loves you the most
Crossed

Condemn, sanctify
Die for the sins that have cursed you
Crossed
Track Name: Desertdrive
The horizon calls to me
As I make my way down
This long stretch of highway breathes
From now I'm darkness bound
The blood pumps in my ears
My cold heart can't stay calm
Why did I do this
And was it so wrong ?

You had every piece of me
Except the one
The one I hid from you so long

I'm a vessel for instinct
Or something even worse
I'll keep on driving
Toward a black embrace

You had every piece of me
Except the one
Deceit eclipsed by love so long

Once the secret's out
There's some things
You can't take back

I'm a vessel for instinct
Or something even worse
I'll keep on driving
Toward a black embrace

The blood pumps in my ears
My cold heart can't stay calm
Why did I do this
And was it so wrong?

You had every piece of me
Except the one
The one I hid from you so long

Once the secret's out
There's some things
You can't take back
So I held onto my delusions
And buried you instead

You had every piece of me
Except the one

Run!
Track Name: The Emptiest
A frame of mind I can’t define
I feel my anger's justified
Spare a second take your time
Everything you’ll have to return

Spinning out pull me under
Every lie you ever told
Fantasy of an easy life
You won’t last

Spinning out drowning under
Every lie that leaves me cold
Tragedy of an easy life
You won’t last long

A past that breeds the emptiness
Now you stand the emptiest
Spare a second take a rest
Leaving all others to burn

Get ready, this is the time of your life
And you live it a day at a time

Spinning out pull me under
Every lie you ever told
Fantasy of an easy life
You won’t last

Spinning out drowning under
Every lie that leaves me cold
Tragedy of an easy life
You won’t last

Spinning out drowning under
Every lie that leaves me cold
Casualty of an easy life
You won’t last long
Track Name: Leech
Stop the flame from burning out
Let the muse of pain overwhelm me
Icy veins entwine my misery
She empowers the suffering

I’ll be standing here
Until I reclaim what I lost within her
I’ll be looking back
Forever her servant till I get my answers

Descend into the torment of my mind
Wallow
Enter the abyss I feed inside

Stop the body from going cold
Pray that the goddess of hurt inspires
My anguish could turn to release
At least for another if not my own

I’ll be standing here, I’ll be looking back
I’ll be standing here, I’ll be looking back
Till I reclaim, I reclaim what I lost

Descend into the torment of my mind
Wallow
Enter the abyss I feed inside

Validate the agony of the life
I know
Open up the cut and spread it wide
Track Name: Castaways
I play the game and I lose
Still I keep going
I watch the TV it’s where I learn the rules
I bet my head, I roll the dice
Wasted my sanity
I’ll be swept up in myself ‘till they get me

Shallow sea of faces
Let’s flow!

Hard waves throw the castaways
We crash on your shore someday
See them floating
See them floating
Hard waves throw the castaways
We crash on your shore someday
See them floating
The sea is rising

I rig the game that I abuse
So I keep going
I hear faint cries for help but I refuse
Through endless doubt I paid the price
For my sick vanity
I’ll brave the waters until they forget me

Shallow sea of faces
Isolated
Let’s flow!

Hard waves throw the castaways
We crash on your shore someday
See them floating
See them floating
Hard waves throw the castaways
We crash on your shore someday
See them floating
The sea is rising

Castaways, on your shore someday
Castaways, on your shore someday, go!
Track Name: Rediscover
Gotta find a way out of here
Disappear in a big black hole
Escape with me tonight

I tried so hard not to give it up
Wish I knew back then what I know now

War!

Contemplating every single move
So much harder than before
Contemplating, striving to improve
This is war

Gotta find our way out of here
Rediscover our hopeful soul
A way to make it right

I tried so hard not to give it up
Wish I knew back then what I know now

War!

Contemplating every single move
So much harder than before
Contemplating, striving to improve

This is war
Track Name: Queen of The Dirt
Such fear in my heart
Such fear in my head
Are these my last hours
Am I truly dead?
Your heat incinerates
I haven't met a soul like you
Such a green cabaret
Let me sing my song
Be my queen of the dirt

I used to shake from the cold
But now I'm burning up
I feel the same inside
Undeserving of your love
But you see it’s me
Who’s down below
And I’ve been dying here for so long

Such fear in my heart
Such fear in my head
Are these my last hours
Am I truly dead?
Your heat incinerates
I haven't met a soul like you
Such a green cabaret
Let me sing my song
Be my queen of the dirt

I got minutes
Hours at most
In your eyes there's the greatest truth
And all I've got is remorse

Goddamn!

Such fear in my heart
Such fear in my head
Are these my last hours
Am I truly dead?
Your heat incinerates
I haven't met a soul like you
Such a green cabaret
Let me sing my song
Be the queen of the dirt

Within me!

Deep deep in me
Stowed away in you
Sinking down, down, down
Deep deep in me
Stowed away in you

Sinking down!
