about

Recorded at Yellow Dog Studios in Austin, TX, and engineered by Matt Meli. Mastered by Nick Landis at Terra Nova Digital Audio, Inc. Austin, TX.

“These are officially some awesome riffs, and ‘Coffin Hunter’ might just be my favourite song yet. There’s a bit of formula to them:

- start each song with EYEHATEGOD style feedback
- follow into a Sleep/Electric Wizard-style riff
- turn that into a swamp soaked, then desert dried mix of St. Vitus and Candlemass
- finally, end with a big heap of Crowbar and Autopsy
- for extra flavour: sprinkle liberally with growls and more feedback

That, by the way, is a compliment, and so is this: most of 5th track, ‘The Swamp’ sounds like what I imagine Mercyful Fate would be if King Diamond dropped from so much countertenor and did more baritone. ” from Doom-metal.com

Track Name: Greet Death
The life that you fulfilled, has led to death.
Think of all the ones you killed, before your doom.
In a serial killer's mind, carrying acts of God.
But the little that you knew, the Devil owned you.

The reaper appears as you gasp on your last breath.
The light at the end of the tunnel proves of your own death.
The arms of demons pull you down into the fire.
Say hello to Satan as he's your master here.

In Hell eternally, there's no escaping.
Your contract has been signed, the Devil's bitch.
Your choices made on Earth, belong in Hell.
No arguments will help, you're just a slave.

Greet death and smile.
You won't get out alive.

Satan laughs as you plea forgiveness.
To repeat your death again and again....again.

The reaper appears as you gasp on your last breath.
The light at the end of the tunnel proves of your own death.
The arms of demons pull you down into the fire.
Say hello to Satan as he's your master here.
Track Name: The Virgin
Mary running home at night.
Hearing footsteps from behind her.
They have come to take her captive.
Sacrifice her virgin flesh.

They'll be a murder at the altar.
So his spirit will arise.
Chanting scripts from their bible.
On this night, her blood will spill.

Midnight strikes at the altar.
All participants arrive.
Let the ceremony begin.
Tied down, virgin screams in fright.

There's a murder at the altar.
So his spirit will arise.
Chanting scripts from their bible.
On this night, her blood has spilled.

Pour his blood into her mouth.
So she will give birth to thee.
Repeat these words of darkness.
Rejoice the birth of the dark lord!

Rebirth/Reborn x2

They won't save you.
We can't save.
They won't help you.
We can't help you.

There's a murder at the altar.
So his spirit will arise.
Chanting scripts from their bible.
On this night, her blood has spilled.
Track Name: So Divided
Listen hear my friends
Have you heard the news today?
A man killed in rage.
For his own beliefs

Should we kill them?
Should we fight it?
Or let justice do its work for us?

This is my last stand
Have you seen the rich today
These men ganing wealth
While our wallets shrink.

Should we fight it?
Should we fuck it?
And let boozin' do the work for us.

For us x6
Track Name: Coffin Hunter
At dusk, hunter starts to pray
That he won't die tonight
Killing creatures of the night
Living each day as his last.

Voices whisper at the graves
Knowing what is to come
Open caskets one by one
A stake to the heart, he strikes.

At dawn, hunter starts to cry
Thinking about his dying wife
In revenge, at night, he fights.
And, one day, it will be gone.

Voices whisper at the graves
Knowing what is to come
Open caskets one by one
Grieving about his dying wife

One by one
I will seek for her

Dear Loretta,
I seek revenge
If I die
I'm your coffin hunter!
Track Name: The Swamp
Late at night, hiding in the swamp.
Is a beast, once a mortal man.
Biding time, waiting for a thrill.
The Thing lurk, seeking evil men.

Through the fog, a man runs scared.
Bearing gold that he stole
In such fright, the beast approaches
Taken down, man disappears.

In the swamp, leaves are bristling
Is a thief, screaming at a girl.
For a midnight snack
From behind, the thing lurks

Through the fog, the beast strikes forth
With his fist, the thief falls down
Petrified, girls runs scared
Down below, the man disappears.

Rising (Beyond)
Scaring (People)
Rising (Behold)
Scaring (People)

In my dreams, I see all.
In my soul, I see clear
In my dreams, I see all.
In my soul, I feel whole.

And in my dreams, and in my soul
I reach inside, to find a hole.
I will confess, I am the beast
deep in the swamp
I will withhold.
Track Name: Asteroid
Look out little girl, it's gonna change.
Right before your every eyes, it's gonna fail

From the sky, up above, I see it fall
Asteroid, from the sky, let's watch it fall.

Hang on, little girl, step out the way
You don't know when you'll die, it's gonna change.

From the sky, up above, we might all die.
Asteroid, in the sky, might kill us all.
We shall not fall.

Watch and see it fall x2
