KJ An amazing debut album by this group. If you are a fan of artists like Soilwork, Solution .45, Scar Symmetry, you should dive head first into this album. Speed, precision, and fantastic lyrics and vocals make this a must own.

Vaclav Benc This album is an amazing experience from start to finish. I don't even have a favourite track because it's just amazing as a whole. And the connection of the whole album and the last two tracks? Incredible. Also, I haven't yet heard an album which would fit the Oppenheimer reference this perfectly.

Track Name: The Harvest
The brightest light can't hide from the shadows
Even in your prison
Cry out to the great divine
But you He will not know
A reckoning has come to pass
Your chance has come and gone
Fall to your knees and pray for death
And embrace the new dawn

Break the seals of the seven
Judgment rains down upon us all
Cowering in your haven
Your sanctuary will fall

There will be no more chance to redeem when all is said and done
Apocalypse is upon us now
The prophesied end of time

Symptomatic
Spreading disease
Psychosomatic
A mental seize
Cities on fire
Our world set ablaze
Apocalypse coming
The ending of days

Deceivers aligned with darkness
Compose the madness
With false intentions (False prophets attract the weak)
All nations oppose the righteous
And fall astray
Like lambs to the slaughter

The darkest place that you can imagine
On the path before us
Where suffering and misery fester into a plague
Deceivers, believers, they weave their own lies
They're spilling the blood
They're wasting your lives

Feel the wrath of the Heavens
Consequence rains upon us all
Now aware of the presence
Of what you feared to believe

Planted the seeds of your own misery and showered them with hate
Apocalypse is upon us now
And harvest is beginning

Symptomatic
Spreading disease
Psychosomatic
A mental seize
Night everlasting
The story concludes
Darkness contrasting with light and we're cleansed anew

Deceivers aligned with darkness
Compose the madness
With false intentions (False prophets attract the weak)
All nations oppose the righteous
And fall astray
Like lambs to the slaughter

Apocalypse!

Feel the wrath of the Heavens
Consequence rains upon us all
Now aware of the presence
Of what you feared to believe is true

This planet abolished, abandoned to mold
Its intended purpose erased
Its name lost in forgotten history

Deceivers aligned with darkness
Compose the madness
With false intentions (False prophets attract the weak)
All nations oppose the righteous
And fall astray
Like lambs to the slaughter
Track Name: Not My War
Do you hear the war drums?
They play the song of impending death
An archenemy has been chosen
A new scapegoat for unrest
Starting a war to settle the score
They say God is on our side
A mission divine, and just this once
Killing is justified

My bureaucracy has enemies, but their enemies are not mine
Feed into the corruption
War is a rich man's game
But a poor man's fight
And it never ends

I can feel the coming genocide
And I'm forced to take a side
While the leaders count the bodies in the ground
No compromise
It bleeds right before my eyes
Desensitized
And this is not my war

Only the dead have seen the end of war
We're standing fast for something more
We pay the price for peace
With the blood of the deceased

My bureaucracy has enemies, but their enemies are not mine
Feeding on our destruction
We've only ourselves to blame
Now salute the flag
As it turns to ashes

I can feel the coming genocide
And I'm forced to take a side
While the leaders count the bodies in the ground
No compromise
It bleeds right before my eyes
Desensitized
And this is not my war

Oh, how we all claim to be pacifists
Until we are commanded to hate

And it turns to ashes

I can feel the coming genocide
And I'm forced to take a side
While the leaders hide the bodies in the ground
No compromise
It bleeds right before my eyes
Desensitized
And this is not my war

I can feel the coming genocide
I don't want to take a side
While our fathers put their children in the ground
A sacrifice
It decays right before my eyes
And this is not my war
Track Name: Arising
Rise up, the young and the restless
Dissatisfied by the words once again
Paving the way for a new generation
You owe a debt, we are the threat
And we're about to make waves

Reconstruct ourselves the instrument
A judgement day is imminent
It's justice for the innocent and all of those to come
We'll shine our light into the dark
Ignite the fire in their hearts
This attitude of apathy and ignorance will go

The time has come when we've all had enough
Our fates decided by a panel of the corrupt
All that we've built upon is being undone
But we can educate them one by one

Reconstruct ourselves the instrument
A judgement day is imminent
It's justice for the innocent and all of those to come
We'll shine our light into the dark
Ignite the fire in their hearts
This attitude of apathy and ignorance will go

Rise
Rise
Together we rise

Sever the mistrust between us
Obliterate all of the barriers
Deconstruct all of the walls around us
Join your hands and stand up

A juncture of light
Gleams brilliant in the night
A network of conjoining lines
Reunite
We'll shine our light into the dark
Ignite the fire in their hearts

Reconstruct ourselves the instrument
A judgement day is imminent
It's justice for the innocent and all of those to come
We'll shine our light into the dark
Ignite the fire in their hearts
This attitude of apathy and ignorance will go
Track Name: At The End
Falling slowly into an endless sky
Will we make peace before we die

When everything we know is lost
Will we then understand the cost
Of sitting on our hands so quietly

Can you see the crumbling lands
Can you feel the unseen hand
The fire is starting to rain
A fallout

A total transformation

For so many reasons I cannot explain
United we must stand when the fire rains
If history has taught us anything
Division is the cause of the fall from grace

When everything you love is gone,
When darkness overcomes the dawn
Will it be enough to make you stand and shout

Do you still believe in life
Do you still believe in love
Or will it all be in vein
At the end

For so many reasons
We need a path to grace
Or we won't be saved
For so many reasons
We need the past to change
To learn from our mistakes

Falling slowly into an endless sky
Will we make peace before we die

For so many reasons I cannot explain
United we must stand when the fire rains
If history has taught us anything
Division is the cause of the fall from grace
Track Name: Supremacy
It's becoming clear now who they see as the enemy
Our citizens treated like criminals without just cause
Give up a little more for the sake of your security
Our rights infringed upon to serve the so-called greater good

You can try to run away
And forever be afraid
Weight of the iron fist, it's everlasting
You can try to dodge it's gaze
From the eye there's no escape
Omniscient supremacy

Hiding in the shadows
Waiting for a real escape
Blinded by your mind fear
Praying not to be afraid

You can try to run away
And forever be afraid
Weight of the iron fist, it's everlasting
You can try to dodge it's gaze
From the eye there's no escape
Omniscient supremacy

Hiding in the shadows
Waiting for a real escape
Blinded by your mind fear
Praying not to be afraid

Subordination!

They are becoming gods to themselves
Idolatry
They are determining your best interest
Theocracy
They can see every move you make
All-seeing entity
From the eye, there's no escape
Omnipresent supremacy!

Supremacy!

It's becoming clear now who they see as the enemy
Our citizens treated like criminals without just cause
Give up a little more for the sake of your security
Our rights infringed upon to serve the so-called greater good

Hiding in the shadows
Waiting for a real escape
Blinded by your mind fear
Praying not to be afraid

Crawl away
The fear you feel is meaningless
I know a way
To overcome the ghost that haunts you
Track Name: Make Us Whole
Casualties of class division
Significance defined by race
False conclusions of a mass decision
Distortion absorbed through a false embrace

Fearing knowledge
And fearing power
Willingly astray
Feeding hatred
And feeding malice
Innocence betrayed

Instigators poke and prod at the already fragile bonds of our society
Pushing man to the limits
Take a little piece of it until there's nothing left

Once united, we stand alone in silence
Slaves to jealousy
Misinformation distributed to incite envy amongst the masses
Abnegate to take part in the game
We're not the ones to blame
Divide the walls that form the lines
And make us whole again

Devoid of honor
Devoid of shame
Divide and conquer
Redirect the blame

How did we come to this after everything we've fought for
Dying a little more each day
The consequences of our divisiveness

Once united, we stand alone in silence
Slaves to jealousy
Misinformation distributed to incite envy amongst the masses
Abnegate to take part in the game
We're not the ones to blame
Divide the walls that form the lines
And make us whole again
Track Name: Mental Extinction
This realm, under the pressure of the system's cloud
It's something to be called as enemy, can't you see - it's your decision,
To shield the propaganda from your mind

They are holding the key to get free
They are holding the truth out of sight
They are holding the mind of the youth
They are holding you by the throat

They are holding the potentials, expending, promising - inconsequential
Starting to see the lies exceed,
behind the line, behind - permissible prediction

Starting to see the lies exceed,
behind the black walls
behind the heresy
Starting to feel free thoughts impede
behind the curtain
behind the fantasy

They have few of their secrets to show
Hiding them instead I ask
Why all of this agony?

Why?

Volunteers to accept false reality,
With suppressed dignity,
And battered perfection

Starting to breath the air,
Starting to build a sphere,
A sphere without a total sense of protection

They have few of their secrets to show
Hiding them instead I ask
Why all of this agony?

Why, this desperation
Why, this aggrevation
What we're seeing now is a suppression of human individuality
This is mental extinction
Track Name: Ordinary Heroes
Keeping the solace
And seeking the knowledge
And striving to keep a bold appearance
Fighting, providing
Persistence abiding
All for giving
All for living

I have heard the tales untold
Inside the wounds unknown
Its an ordinary tale of all that is forgotten

(You and I)
While we're waiting for the gods
(You and I)
While we're waiting for the chosen ones
We could be the heroes of our generation
We see the world
Through different eyes
And I could never rest

It is the cost of every man

Breathing, surviving
And secretly fighting
And trying to make the hard decisions
Taking a stand now
And making demands
How coexistence gleans resistance

I have seen the world unfold
I have felt the good unknown
Its an ordinary tale of all that goes untold

(You and I)
While we're waiting for the gods
(You and I)
While we're waiting for the chosen ones
We could be the heroes of our generation
We see the world
Through different eyes
And I could never rest
Track Name: Resistance
The battle starts right now

The legions fed by hate, flooding the streets recite the vow
Not loyal, no more enchained
No more bowing down so low
Their flesh of feud
A wrathful engine army of the lame
While lashes of invincibles shall make them safely tame

In a twisted liberty
In the warped scheme of life
They will burn your frail wings off
Or extinguish your inner light

And we will rise
A million voices like sirens in the night
Our fists held high like pillars in the air
All fear left behind
Our vision true, and mission clearly defined

The battle starts right now

The enslaved flesh bowing to faceless shadows they create
A brand new true blue flock of sheep
Blinded by visions of fate
Slaves to their fears
And chained by lies force-fed into their thoughts
Each one of them
Useless and hollow machines

In a twisted liberty
In the warped scheme of life
They will burn your frail wings off
Or extinguish your inner light

And we will rise
A million voices like sirens in the night
Our fists held high like pillars in the air
All fear left behind
Our vision true, and mission clearly defined

The battle starts right now

And we will rise
A million voices like sirens in the night
Our fists held high like pillars in the air
All fear left behind
Our vision true, and mission clearly defined

The battle starts right now
Track Name: Leviathan
A tremendous weight placed upon our backs
With little concern for how its carried
We'll sink, into a void of black
Forgotten legends to be lost and buried

Take a look around and you will see
The recklessness, self indulgence, and voracity of it all
Break it down into insignificant numbers
False figures, but the damage is real

This was the plan
But we don't know for how long
Economic collapse, destroying the core
And leave the hungry masses wanting more

Falling deeper into abjection
Forced into
Depravity
It's a clever game they play and its ours to lose

Don't ask, they will never tell you how they plan to pay it back
They distract with unlimited funding from treasures they don't have

Falling deeper into abjection
Forced into
Depravity
It's a clever game they play and its ours to lose

Feed it and grow it
Slaves to the leviathan

Bleeding, draining
I have nothing, no more to give.
Cheating, wasting
Futures sold, but with little to show for it

Feed the Leviathan!

Bleeding, draining
I have nothing, no more to give.
Cheating, wasting
Futures sold, but with little to show for it

Feed the Leviathan!
Track Name: Hope Is Lost
Lost, we're at a loss
And all will cease to be
Fallen, now there is dark
Our light's not enough to see
The shadows choke like the dust and smoke
Its the blind leading the blind
Whether we are joined as one
Or left alone
Tomorrow we will die

I feel like I failed
Won't try to mask the sorrow
And though we might still last tomorrow
Hope is lost

Now at the end
I'm searching for the sun
I've felt its life a thousand times
Now forgotten what it's like
The darkness falls like blackened walls
And fires the only light
Never feel its warmth again
What could have been
Desire in your eyes

I feel like I failed
Won't try to mask the sorrow
And though we might still last tomorrow
Hope is lost

Go back to where it all began
Eternity in seconds
And history repeats
Go back to where it started
It's not that hard to see
We're rooted in our faithlessness
And history repeats

[In the final days of our existence here
I hope humanity can turn around and see
The sacrifices made, the blood and tears they shed
How at the end, we find it never mattered
No heroic tales will be recited then
No stories or songs to carry on the names
All wars will be forgotten, all fame will be erased
Now at the end, we find it all a waste]

I feel like I failed
Won't try to mask the sorrow
I doubt we'll ever see tomorrow

We see the fall coming
Fate is carved upon the wall
As the universe is fading
We're digging our own graves
And we will sing this song tomorrow

"We gather in the night
The writers of the hopeless song
Together in the dark
We pray for one last note to sing
We're lost but not afraid
Our voices cry in unison
For those who lost their way
We pray for one last song"

I cry into the night
The writer of this hopeless song
Collapsed, eyes to the sky
I pray for one last scream

Hope is lost
No longer waiting for the gods
Or for the chosen ones
No heroes there will be
And history repeats

Go back to where it all began
Eternity in seconds
And history repeats
Go back to where it started
It's not that hard to see
We're rooted in our faithlessness
And history repeats

I write this as a warning
And I write this is a plea
Until your dying breath escapes you
Your hope can never die
So take these words I gave you
And tally up the cost
Cause the day we give up fighting
Is the day that hope is lost
