Daniel Johnson This is straight up Nastiness. Sludgy dark and even a little crusty. Get on this my friends. Favorite track: Burial Shroud.

SabbathJeff Love Khemmis, saw them open for Sleep at the Decibel fest in Philly in April. They slayed. Loathe nazi sympathizing, so I bought this D/L (Fuck downloads as well) for their donation to some great organizations fighting fascism. Tape cassette sold out, otherwise I would've nabbed that, because again, I'm not big on downloads, but had to for helping fight the good fight. Neutrality = death. I'm gonna live, until death dictates otherwise. Thank you guys for doing this.

Track Name: Black Hole White Teeth
quick, tell the pig to put on her lipstick
smile on cue
and remind her
that it won’t hurt
for long

to fatherland
a party’s not a party
to fatherland
without entertainment
to motherland
a petulant princess
to motherland
as an appetizer

a party’s not a party without a victim

to fatherland
a party’s not a party
to fatherland
the marginalized masculine
to motherland
will rise again and again
to motherland
open up for father

gut the pig
slash her skin
kill the pig
cash her in
Track Name: Of Flesh and Worship
in an anemic glacier they think they found the truth
with their circulation halted and broken
they kept the beat as the ice had emoted
to stop the cognitive erosion

within frozen blood, the ice at its most ferocious,
lies the confluence of flesh and worship

they think they’ve found the truth
we think we’ve found them
you think you may have found the truth
I think I found you

as the earth vomits blood
its guts on our jaws
the individual experience is a hostile, indifferent existence
Track Name: Entropic Decay
we are merely observers to the entropic decay of the universe
this horror, unending, filled with little more than
loss pain remorse failure
assured that our lives have meaning and that our civilizations are permanent
the young consume the old and are replaced
the cycle begins anew
so we reap
Track Name: Burial Shroud
each second is carved into my mind
a scar to ensure that we can’t forget
that this burden is shared by all
for the shape of the world and the hole in our hearts
for humanity grown cancerous, gnarled and rotted
by greed and indifference

corrupted by the illusion of salvation
and the serpentine promise of redemption

bury us as we were meant to be
food for worms, forgotten by time
leave us as we should have always been
food for worms, forgotten by time
