Cody Drasser Dirty, weird and malevolently hopeless-sounding death metal the way only a NJ band could possibly be. More than a few tips of the hat to bands like Gorguts, Voivod and Demilich alongside their own unique, skronky take on the almighty riff. This young upstart band shows nothing but promise for the future of death metal as they also show how much reverence they hold for the brilliant originators. Recommended and essential album of a band who deserves more recognition.

Nicholas Underhay Those twisted, breathless, desperate vocals and those bendy riffs make this a fascinating and hugely interesting album. FFO Horrendous. Favorite track: Sewing Seeds in Dead Soil.

Sir Aptly Not Named This album is fantastic. Driving carnivorous grooves, spastic jerks and twists, calm moments juxtaposed on acidic vocals. Its fun on the bun. Favorite track: Vessel of Iniquity.

about

Replicant New Brunswick, New Jersey

Set in a bleak atmosphere of filth, malaise, and decaying infrastructure, REPLICANT is a New Jersey trio intent on producing despotic, depraved and pummeling riffs — a grinding and grooving aural consequence of the industrial primordial swamp that defines their surroundings. ... more

Track Name: (Spit) Into the Void
Reign in the fall of time
Resist the crushing clutch of destiny
An abject being, rejected voice
A shameful spit into the void
A vile blast into the nerve
I envy the dead, longing to rot
Silent sleep to awaken no more
Barbaric creature of ignorance
A tumor breeding upon the earth
Weak sack of filth
Consuming scum
Suffocating light
Black veil of sickness
Exterminate to liberate
Track Name: ADRA2B
Deemed a relic disease
Unearthed spells from the past
Beast of modernity
This fragile world is shit to me
Eternal realm of suffering
Imprisoned in purgatory
Static vision, burning eyes
Lured only by what precedes me
Piercing intense noise of all time at once
Canceling the future
No promises, all lies
Pure negativity
Lured by what precedes me
Born with instinctive failure
Sworn to misery
Dragged through sentience
Becoming nothing
Trapped in this prison of flesh
Idle with no answer
Punishment for lost sins
A purpose unfulfilled
Track Name: Inescapable Grief
I feel a dense fear
A callous horror within
Dread to outlast
Terminal urge and final breathes
A life in shadows
Distrust and revulsion
Awake in my coma
Screaming at ghosts
Dread to outlast
Terminal urge and final breathes
Imminent torment beaten into me
Perpetual, inescapable grief
A waking terror in all these moments
Infected memories
Distrust of light
Inescapable grief
Track Name: Oceans of Dust
A slow descent into the formless void
Hideous tentacles of sickness strangle my being
Vile tears have withered to filth
Mocked by my crude reflection
Landscape of ruin
Never accept this hollow shell
Programmed for doom
Never to speak of what I am
Eternal Pain
Forgotten Realm
Conceived into the life disease
Disposable blunder
Soaked in a fire beneath my eyes
To burn the visions that lay inside
Within alluring slumber
Remnants of my emptiness
This diminished fracture of myself
My soul awaits the crushing of the oceans of dust
Track Name: Sewing Seeds in Dead Soil
Forgotten zeal
Distended lust
An appetite for growth
Subjected slave to time unspent
Concealed in shit and wasting away
Yearn to hope the hopeless
A frail becoming
Sewing seeds in dead soil
Scream in soundless verse
Sterile chants of rage
Ballads of decay
Dissonant birth
Stillborn love
Remembrance rots
Track Name: Chaotic Neutral
Writhing sores, forever entombed as defect
Impure realm, flushed with puss
Walls of filth weeping with regret
The taste of sickness infects the tongue
Contagion, virus of defilement
Into the slums of pleasure
Ignorant search for climax
Aberration unleashed
Consuming the slime of dead flesh
Secrets locked within, a cancer outside
Breathing, rotting pungent meat
Living defect
Dim and disillusioned by life
Hedonistic pleasure feels so dull
Fatigued and jaded, reset the flesh
Idle and eroding
Brittle bone collapsing beneath
Track Name: Shroud
The lens through which I seek is of dust and glass
I will paint a self-portrait with the entrails of others
Inside it will be a black hole filled with my nightmares
It will remain
Mindless state of disorder
Inspired by the basest of urges
Imagined by the most impossible
The face that stares back
A madman enthralled by malice and disease
Mindless state of disorder
Inspired by the basest of urges
Imagined by the most impossible
My face is a black hole
You are my eyes
Track Name: Vessel of Iniquity
Separation from the whole
A stagnant cell of bacterium
Paradise lost, eternal strife
Temptation into dark realms
Unleash me in the whimpering dimension
Below me, God's presence unknown
Created with no desire
Painful force, fucked into existing
Nothing hears my cry
Absence defiled
Muted screams
Negative life
Slow penetration, torn capillaries
Fearsome decline
An absolute miscarriage of genetic filth
Deceptive illusion of a fractured screaming ghost
Discarded womb, haunted soul
Malignant satisfaction
Life of suffering mourned into the unbecoming
Secretions tainted with blood
Visions of pure despair
Vessel of iniquity
A sorrow time will never heal
Nothing hears my cry
Absence defiled
Muted screams
Negative life
