about

Check out the latest Amnesian album. This band's demo was one of the first I ever reviewed back when this page was but a baby. They always found a great way to wring some unique sounds out of the grindcore formula and continue to do so here with some seriously dark melodocism that veers between Black Metal and Technical death. THe musicianship has vastly improved as well. These guys always seems to end their albums with a slow, epic banger and this one is no exception with the trilogy of "Banished" leading into "No Haven Left" into "Sin-Eater". A lot of grind bands close their albums with slower songs but few add the appropriate layers of grandiosity to really make a powerful closing chapter. This band adds eerie and haunting melodic lines to really have these type of songs leave a memorable, dark impression.

Track Name: Our Perpetual Waste
a line to cross forever
the lasting gasp: a weapon
any sign of life in question

consume this waste
from holy gates

forget the sense of total error
forgive the sin of total waste

enduring the senselessness
the senselessness of guilt
Track Name: Conquerors
throwing ourselves at the feet
of sheer madness and strife
the world fails to appear
as time closes

the wilted garden decays and reeks
everything rots away

in this climactic hellscape
the chances die out

no answers

to wield this time in terror
against conquerors in twilight
Track Name: Sense Of Loss
Only gloom can take horror away
glow fading in the dead eye
will tears
the sides wide open
a host drained
over and over

the hands of fate
shall sow well
Track Name: Bleeding Out The Familiar
this is blood from a stone
this is stone from our souls

no sentence awaits the toil
in minds
design

banished and
totally enveloped
from that
which is
passed down

bow and receive
your fated rights

and as for the sky it will open up and spill out the familiar
the land will part and the sea will swell into a lasting storm
nothing is as endless as the fate we reserve for ourselves
a passionate embrace of thought spinning further beyond
Track Name: Craters
pull their reigns
pull their reigns
dance on their shields and blaspheme their names

barren, salted
wasted, wake

break its legs
break its legs
sever the head and discard the remains

goaded
extinction

craters shape
stranded cave

spill the blood
fill the lake
stake the claim
in death i create

goaded, paved
ancient rites

encompassed and desolate
we took a promised land
all control abolished
burned alive
Track Name: Mire
you are lying to me
through this volume
you are lying to me
through this age

a thankful note to the deceased
and not to the exiled

You'll be happy to join us
down within the mire

There is nothing between our existences
Until the paranoia locks us up

You’ll be happy to join us
down within the mire

The pulse dimmed to a dead stop


of control
Track Name: Humanity Void
Citizen of the endless below
Your hands walk across the globe
in tentacled want and desire
Where we find ourselves in crisis

You find yourself

In hidden places

In silent mass

Those who sway the strings of the gods sever their thrones
Track Name: Veiled By Hexes
bury me
by the void
cautiously

Father of the waking hex
Deliver us our rest
Mother of the broken light
defining sight

passed down
from disease
eternally

Bringer of the waking hex
deliver us our rest
Burden of the broken light

to the grave i divide

the great parasite
Track Name: No Haven Left
the wind corrodes
it eats my flesh and bones

the sun explodes
destroys my iron throne

built to the length of the earth
former fixtures of faith
purpose made alive
again

and the hammers fall
on the faces of time
born of sorrowing words
entwined
to end

all life bereft
no haven left
Track Name: Sin-Eater
walker of the tired, beaten spiral
living downward across a million miles
open the gauze
the cost is now lost
sin-eating to supply our needs
refilling the pace and leave
a storm of stress
so shall it be

CONSUMED BY A WAITING FLESH
CONSUMED BY THE WEIGHT OF SIN

CONSUMED
ENDLESSLY
END
CONSUME
