“Brutal, hard hitting, intense, and evocative!” This is the band that brings an honest message and ‘Heavy’ back to Heavy Metal.
The collective energies that make up this unique act joined in the heart of Southern California in the winter of 2011. Since then they have released two pulse pounding/heart stopping CDs, that hold their own in any given metal genre.

Track Name: Intro
N/A
Track Name: Gunned Down
Gunned Down

They hide, behind, the badge, the gun…… Whatever they want with no discretion
Discount, the words, protect, and serve…… Becoming a policy of oppression
I’ve seen the abuse with my eyes
Death dealers with no regard or reprise
Hard to feel there’s equality now
Who is left to head the call when you’re the one who’s been gunned down?

Living in a military state, in a false flag paradigm
Wanna take my rights by demand? You better pry them from my cold dead hands.

You lie, face down, concrete, your teeth…… Guilty until you’re innocent
Power, abuse, you cry, no use…… All of society’s indifferent
Young people shot dead in the streets
Who would fight back against the police?
Knowing there’s no escaping it now
Who would stand up for your rights when you’ve been gunned down?

Living in a military state, in a false flag paradigm
Wanna take my guns through demands? You’ll have to pry them from my cold dead hands.

With one in the chamber, I will stand my ground.
Track Name: Desperate Defiance
Desperate Defiance

Restraining purpose
By no fault, of my own
This life is worthless
A path I won’t condone

I’ve opened my eyes…
To this destruction, and full corruption
I sift through the lies…
I’m finding nothing, you’re giving nothing

I’ve been down this path before, and I know just where it leads
A life of hate and destitute and I’m caught in between
Well you’ve been led astray, with no place left to hide.
So step up to the plate because it’s your turn to die.

Revealing frailty
The fear before the fall
Desperate defiance
Caught up within the thrall

Apathetic displacement…
We feed the machine, I feel unclean
Programmed and complacent…
Indentured servants, and lifeless hermits

We’ve heard these lies before, and we know just what they mean
A crippling condition, obliterating dreams
It’s almost laughable; you resolve to change the past
Can’t placate everyone, so will see who’s laughing last

No way out, in it now, falling down,
Fell victim to compliance.
It’s futile, Betrayal, Beautiful
In your desperate defiance
- - -
I’ve opened my eyes…
To this destruction, and full corruption
I sift through the lies…
I’m finding nothing, you’re giving nothing

Revealing frailty
The fear before the fall
Desperate defiance
Lost ground and losing all
Track Name: Faceless Enemy
Faceless Enemy

It was highway robbery!
Tricked into thinking it could be real
Pulling all of the strings
And we’re the ones paying back on their deal

How could you turn away, a grinning infamy?
Controlled through your apathy, Pray for the end of days….

Whine as you pay though the nose
Watch as the deficit grows
The dividing lines start to fade
It’s black and white, there’s no longer grey

How could you turn away, the heist of the century?
Controlled though your apathy, Pray for the end of days….

Never the less, who could care less
No consequence, Left defenseless

Accepting your violent fate,
Liberty you gave away,
Dividing lines have all but fade
Its black and white with your faceless enemy.
Track Name: Land of the Blind
Land of the Blind

Flash back paranoid, treading the land of the dead
Nightmare homicide, living the life that I’ve lead
Face to face!!!!!!!! With my blood stained horror that waits
Where the weak are hunted, there’s a bullet with my name

I’ve spent 10 years knee deep in blood
Constantly staring down the barrel of a gun
Pure panic, in the land of the blind
The man with one eye, is god

Embrace death cause you were born to die
Enlist in the slave trade suicide
Haste the day!!!!! When you’re signing your life away
As the days roll on, you’re falling to your grave

I’ve spent 10 years knee deep in blood
Constantly staring down the barrel of a gun
Pure panic, in the land of the blind
The man with one eye, is god
Track Name: Killing
Killing

In the shadow of your grace and composure
Still adapting to a brutal truth
Was a fleeting fight to keep you close
Cause I’d never get that close to you

Finding the answers at the bottom of a bottle
It only makes the lessons learned easy swallow

No more wearing my heart on my sleeve

No room for failure, Take it all one breath at a time
Separate the real from the façade,
No room for conscience, choking on my pride
Drowning every waking thought of you

Finding the answers at the bottom of a bottle
It only makes the damage done easy swallow

No more wearing my heart on my sleeve

I lived inside of a dream for too long
And now I’m coming to know
I fought this uphill battle
My emotions drug behind me in tow

No room for failure, Take it all one breath at a time
Separate the real from the façade,
No room for conscience, choking on my pride
Drowning every waking thought of you


Killing every last loving emotion you’ve made
KILLING……………..

Manipulating as you feign your compassion
Giving hope when there is none to be found
I’ve given into this conflicting addiction
So every feeling that I have is drowned.
Track Name: 7.23
7.23

You’re merely vibrations and waves…. We’re all vibrations and waves

Within your individual reality, only part of a greater whole,
We are all one consciousness, experiencing reality subjectively.

A touch of Divinity to this nation,
You are not oneself but one awareness
Waves from one sun
The sound of culmination

You’re merely vibrations and waves…. We’re all vibrations and waves

The whole is equal to the sum of its parts,
Denounce your solipsism and recognize,
Altering your consciousness, changing your reality
You alone, have the freedom to be something more


A touch of Divinity to this nation,
You are not oneself but one awareness
Waves from one sun
The sound of culmination

The definition of existence is to be aware of consciousness.
No more… Denial… we are… the same…
No more… Denial… We are… all waves…

That which you believe separates you is only a veil
One nation, one spirit, one connection, is what we are
Only you have the power to see through this façade
Denounce your supposed truths, and release yourself from these bonds
Track Name: New Millennium Revolution
New Millennium Revolution

Scaling over walls we’re taking over, there’ll be no one here that’s left alive
Hatred narrows vision to the point of no return, cleansing and sterilize.
Taking back what’s ours, you’ll never get it, and if you’re in the path expect to die
Stand up for yourself, there’s no one else who will; now see the fear within their eyes…

All… Hail… the new… Belief

Right this wrong, freedom used to mean something
It won’t take long, Denounce the laws that mean nothing
Stand up on the condition,
The only thing to fear is fear itself.
Speak with stricken conviction,
Knowledge is power, and likewise wealth

All… Hail… the new… Belief

Resist we must, resist we will….


(Repeat all)
