WITHERS "lightmares" LP
adagio830 nr 102


released December 27, 2014

The fourpiece from Linz, Austria is approaching music intensely, and is driven by vocal outbursts,and disruptive guitars. They are developing a sound that will assault your senses, feedbacks punctuating the eardrum to an apocalyptic backdrop. Lyrically they want to keep it deep and speak in general about human/social atrocities, troubled minds, search of self-awareness, and so on... Bands like CONVERGE, BOTCH or THE CURSED might come to mind listening to them.

Track Name: eyes of the emperor
In my minds eye
I like fires in your cities
My manifest of terror is executed
In a cold hearted manner
My right is your error
Collateral damage
Mind over matter

Call me Nero
King of zero

A forsaken tyrant re-appear in history
An everlasting dynasty
You can’t get rid of me
He turns his relentless laws into a darker force
A crushing cause
Stone faced he watches you decay
Track Name: into the void
So you can never miss what you never had before
This life has just passed you by

The dark matter of self pity turns into an all eating black hole
and sucks out his soul loss of control dead ending thoughts compel me

It’s the hammer of misfortune that stroke
I’m stumbling through life and time
This seems like a sentence the trial is on
Resident illusion of a theft

And I am drowning in a mire

Never took a risk but still feels like he has lost
This life has just passed you by

Then the serpent said to the women that in the day you eat of it
your eyes will be opened and you be like god
Knowing good and evil
Track Name: let me sleep
So he has this armor this cold shield that protects him
the side effect is total numbness
He slips into crazy life where no bright light is there

The adverse habitat forces him to batten down the hatches so he´s safe
bullheaded benumbed and his feelings are left for dead

Produced by surroundings

He’s ending up in nothingness it is pitch black in his chest
Track Name: kāli
Shiva laid in path of Kāli who ́s foots on her subdues frenetic anger
she ́s more than terrible

a vicious slayer of demons
the total corrosion
the supreme mistress of the universe she’s one with the elements

on the defeated and the beaten she’s standing
fire spread and bloodshed she desires

become reconciled with death
she teaches acceptance
the way things are determined ultimate reality

chopped of heads the children of others you carry them around your neck

her gentle smile and young beauty seduces to love her
on the cremated ground she dances and leaves just bodies behind
Track Name: no burial of the will
I could see the pain coming from his eyes when he said to me
all my friends got killed in the cartels war so appreciate yours
he just got over and moved on this depths I’ve never seen before and I do adore this vicious vortex I’ll never predict

Anyway at all he accepts the strife as an endless grind

why does he have to walk through this killing fields
thank you fate - thank you god - thank you rotten city

no burial of the will
Track Name: all i leave is a cryptic letter
He envisioned his tragic ending
Sent his condolences to himself
Good bye cruel world all I leave is a cryptic letter
and I know that afterlife just will be better
will be less bitter

So I surrender
So I remorse
DMT rush

Choked by the shallow hands of an iced existence
Reminiscent of the aspired things in the fading distance
I wanna go - I close the doors – I am through
With being defiant is it worth to extinct?

I am not dead but I feel like a ghost
A parasite without any host

When the door opened he saw the glitter and shine of the broken heartjaws He caused and didn’t disrupt
So he kept his life and soul and didn’t erupt
And he continued not only for his own sake
