lyrics

Down a rabbit hole
Curiosity opens a can of worms
Playing God, the watchmakers wind
Pandora’s bequest lives on
False creators discover dissection
Ripping wings off butterflies
Virgins just ripe for raiding
Torture justified by greater purpose
Disconnected impositions
Intellect beyond the point of no return
Mindless formulaic calculations
They can’t see a whole greater than the sum of its parts
Learning more, but knowing less
Knowing too much but never enough
Each answer brings more questions
Creating more problems than solving
Theory overshadows reality
Worshipping a false prophet
The human empire ransacking
An invasive species conquering nature

A sea of brain dead zombies consume
Shallow mass media drivel
A new Manifest Destiny rising
Following indulgent shepherds
To insalubrious extravagance
Don’t pay now; but pay more later on
Babel towers much too high
A catch up game; but time waits for no man
To shoot oneself in the foot
A virus too potent kills its host
No one hears Cassandra’s screams
Surpassed tipping points
The tragedy of the commons
Approaching maximum entropy
Counting down to our extinction

Noxious emissions
Morbid polymer plasticisers
Choking toxic fumes
The party’s over; the end of an era
Flood and pestilence
The Great Death all over again
With a pesky swarm in lieu of lava
Second, Third, and Fourth Bowls are poured
Drought and utterly burned with fire
The globe becomes a furnace
Merchants cry as they see the smoke of Her burning
Their vision blurred by detail
Now they can’t see the forest nor any trees
They shall be cast into the sea: shall sink and shall not rise
Choking plastic oceans; Lakes of Fire
Rapture is come
Humanity is just a blip
A boom bust cycle

about

Infernal Outcry Hobart, Australia

Technical and progressive extreme death metal: punishing drums, maliciously methodical guitars, and deathly screams lure the listener into a diverse and ruminative musical landscape of complex rhythms and sinister melodies teeming with intensity.
