Liner Notes: 

Had some stuff happen in my personal life which took my focus away from being creative for a while there, but last weekend I finally had the time and willpower to sit down and lay down some tracks. Then, almost a whole week of banging my head against the wall, I finally managed to scribble out some half-decent lyrics, half-assedly criticizing the rampant greed that permeates this late-stage capitalism hellworld we inhabit.

Also, the first riff felt familiar somehow right from the outset, like it was taken from someone else's song, but I've yet to find out what it was if anything. Please let me know if you recognize it.

Lyrics: 

Raptured in decadence
Relish destruction
Yearning to taste the breath of death

Illusion of control
Spiral to ground below

Down in the filth where you belong
Content to wallow in
What oozes out your skin
While greedily taking everything

Bestial ravening
Compulsive consuming
A need that's never satisfied

Illusion of control
Spiral to ground below
Down in the filth
Where you belong

Raptured in decadence
Relish destruction
Yearning to taste the breath of death
Bestial ravening
Compulsive consuming
A need that's never satisfied

Illusion of control
Spiral to ground below
Down in the filth
Where you belong



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

You're right. That first riff does sound familiar. Not sure where from though... Possibly Burzum or Immortal? Dunno.

Also hearing some Marduk in this.

This is really well done, though. Quality black metal! Keep it comin'!

intense! usually in this style, i can't at all hear what the words are, but you did a good job of enunciation or mixing or something.

i like when it breaks into downtempo right around the middle, then circles back to an uptempo motif later on.

Love it. Just the right level of filthy necro frostbite for a Monday morning Biggrin

Really enjoyed this! Love the tone of that gained all the way to the depths of hell and back guitar line. That downtempo break is where that really stood out me. Excellent lyric and delivery too that chorus is particularly great!
