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: Sowing 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.

1.
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
2.
ADRA2B 04:27
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
3.
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
4.
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
5.
The Frail 01:38
6.
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
7.
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
8.
Shroud 04:30
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
9.
10.
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

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
