Jess Linde So this is that skramz thing the kiddos are talking about! I've been missing out! Favorite track: Chamber of Misery (Pt. II).

Left.entire Well worth the wait. Crushes start to finish but the opener is the meanest entree to an album that I think I’ve heard in a minute.

mb Bleak and brutal, but also clarifying and freeing. Sometimes one just needs to move forward.

chadvanalstin I had no idea I was cable of feeling anything other than disdain for screamo. This is a terrific release, mixing punk, metal, and industrial elements to evoke a sense of despair and mania that is only enhanced by the album's brevity. Sometimes heavy, sometimes screechy -- and always unsettling -- this is smart, creative music that shouldn't be dismissed, even by punk and metal purists. Favorite track: Daymare.

Fozzy Pizzabuttchug This is the album I have been waiting for. I mean, I have been waiting for this album since before knowing of this band's existence. If there is one album you listen to this year make sure it is this one. The absolute desolation, immolation, despair, and dread that fills our hearts and souls is showcased here. Favorite track: Daymare.

Track Name: Daymare
Spit in the face of the corporation.
Shovel away the dirt and blood.
The walls of this place are much colder.
They can weep at my feet.
They can beg for mercy.
Will you be mine when the gates finally open?
Suffering for a single release.
Pain only numbs me for the next time.
For the last time.
Plagued by fear, I lay here paralyzed.
My demons are at war above me.
Winner take all, I accept my fate.
I become one with myself and the world around me.
Track Name: Among Friends
Who are they supposed to trust?
A coward?
A fraud?
I'll see you on the other side.
Pull me away.
Pull me under.
I can't wait to be free.
You're just as guilty as me.
The depression flows within me,
like the wind and the blood in my veins.
I'd rather fight my way out.
Even with a gun to my head.
Another bridge burned.
Track Name: A Burden
How's it feel to live on the edge of the knife?
No consequences.
We're born into this.
Dull on the end.
They're out to get us.
I sleep the days away.
Paralyzed and weighed down.
No one can save us now.
Shoveling away the dirt.
I won't forgive you for what you've done.
Without this feeling, what am I here for?
You can find me digging my own grave.
My faith has left me.
There's no other way.
I've searched for reason, but I've chosen to pay.
My sins will haunt my soul until the day my memories fade away.
Track Name: Let Pain Be Your Guide
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Your War
This is your war.
Chains around your hands weigh you down.
There's nothing left.
I let the waves wash over me,
cleansing what innocence I have left.
Enslaved.
No return.
The separation of torn limbs.
There's nothing left.
Track Name: Chamber of Misery (Pt. II)
Suffer.
Track Name: Life Holds Nothing
Blinded by the throes of mankind.
The gates of hell will open for me.
When the last man has fallen.
The gates of hell will open for me.
Buried in a trench of lies.
Covered in shame.
You are blind.
In turn it's time, as I open my eyes.
Track Name: The Hunger
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Death Is Gentle
The semantics don't change my position.
Track Name: Until We're Dust
Cheap ideals mean nothing to me.
We were thrown away.
Shut out and left to rot.
Gazing into the abyss.
I see now what you mean.
I won't be chosen.
I feel.
I suffer.
I fade.
I blame you.
