"A venomous, hateful piece of work" - robertmaddison

This self-recorded demo is full of bile-filled and spiteful metallic hardcore, mixing up down-tempo, mosh and crust parts. This is ugly music with passionate vocals, that can barely contain its own rage.

Originally released on tape by Church Of Fuck, and limited to 50 copies which sold out in just 2 days, and as a free download from Bandcamp. It was received positively, and has hailed comparisons to Cursed, American Nightmare, Converge, Rise And Fall and Fall Of Efrafa.

This CD version features the exclusive bonus track 'Death Hymn' which is a bleak acoustic number, and also has a video, created by Dom Moss, of Esoteric Youth / Night Terrors Records, which can be seen here www.youtube.com/watch?v=656dzwc7o94

The band recently broke up so it also now features 'World Past Saving', the last song they wrote/recorded, and 'Field Of Flames' the b-side from the tape version on Church Of Fuck featuring Dom Moss of Esoteric Youth, making it a Complete Discography.

Limited to just 100 copies, in a handmade gatefold CD sleeve, with artwork by Dia Artio, handscreened by Giant Iron Face and designed by ACDSleeve. The CDs have been stencilled/sprayed by the band.

Track Name: Field Of Flames
Featuring Dom Moss of Esoteric Youth
lyrics
Lying in a field of flames
I can see forever burning

Bless you, fuck you

See the world covered in flames
Burning forever, see what remains
Until we have eradicated
Everything that man has created

I wanna watch the world burn
Track Name: Heathen Reign
The loves I’ve lost, the hearts I’ve broken,
Haunt me nightly.
The things I’ve said, the things I’ve done,
Haunt me nightly.
Jesus didn't die for my sins; I will die for my own.
My fathers words, my mothers tears,
Haunt me nightly.
I cried out for a saviour, but all I got was a monster.
Be your own god.
Track Name: Cold Cross
Born into this hell, baptised in boiling water,
Disowned by the world; like a lamb to the slaughter.
Don't pray for me, I forgive myself.
He won't heal your hurt, he won't save you.
Track Name: Burnt Eden
Dear Jesus, I hope I disappoint you,
Dear Jesus, my hate is pure like sunshine.
From the ashes of your bones we will rise, united in hate.
We will rise.
We will end our father’s wars,
We will start one of our own,
Against you.
Track Name: Death Hymn
This is not your home
It's just where your misery lives

These sunsets
Were not meant for you
Too much silence
Has left you hollow

The silence stretched forever
It shattered you inside

Dear child
You must fly the nest
And soar high
Then burn it down

If no ones's saved you yet
Then no one ever will

And when I'm gone
Tell my family
That it hurt
For the longest time
