    Four tracks of punk/metal worship from members of Coffinworm, Lair of the Minotaur, Demiricous, and more. Recorded and released by the band on the Clandestine Arts imprint. Artwork by Dusty Neal.

    300 copies on black vinyl.

    Fans of Motörhead, Celtic Frost, Darkthrone, D-Beat, etc. take note.

    Review from Maximum Rock and Roll #331:

    "Dirty, heavy, mid-paced stoner/hardcore with sick but sporadic leads. Everything is pegged and the pace creates a MOTÖRHEAD-on-'ludes vibe which is perfect when the fast bits kick in and kick you in the ass. Imagine Germany's the NOW-DENIAL mixing it up with Kentucky's COLISEUM and recording the whole thing through a whiskey-drenched fog in the depths of Georgia. This sounds filthy and dangerous...like it would hurt you. Sometimes getting hurt just makes you tougher."

Track Name: Possession of the Void
In the conscience that is naked
There is no moon and no sun
(Only) now
Undormant I swim into the void

To the eyes of my solitude
I stare and I welcome you

I'm a planet of distilled senses
Accepting only the darkest existence
Is no such thing

To the eyes of my solitude
I stare and I welcome you

The flickering of instincts will fall
When you invest in your fear and your stress
The waves of all blackness will call
From beyond your blood and your soul
Track Name: The Coming
Prey upon annihilation
Seeking realms of all the lore
Placing truth upon a soul
A loveless appetite for more
Revelation insurrection
Fuck my life and take me Death
Praying for this tragedy
Praying for the Death Breath

I have to have never and not wait for the sun
My holiest moment in time is when I feel that Death

Cleansing in the fire flood
Curse us down until it's done
Worship not the rotten ghost
While walking with the hooded one

Come Death.
Track Name: (upside down cross)
Bring me all your thrones and your chalices - I'm holy fucking you
No one's in my world fucking building me a chain - I breathe alone I’ll die alone
Never did I ask you for your god - you're master's a bitch
Holy or unholy I'm working till my death - I live and I don't exist
You call it Evil, I call it Nothing, Your darkness is fake
You call it Evil, I call it Nothing, I rest with no faith
Gather all my pride and all humility - I'm taking it in
Filthy naked no one and taking no name - I'm calling only creature
Nothing is above and nothing is below - careless for a truth
Whether there is fire or whether there is light I bring you through my chest
Track Name: Your Filth Your Hate
Raise all your glasses and bring out your Hell
Open the bottles and open the graves and bathe in your filth and your hate
Filth and Hate Filth and Hate
Feel the falling hammer and turn inside out
Love your corruption and rotten cold ways
And bathe in your filth and your hate
Don't tread on me
