SHADOWSTEIN this album is epic and just as heavy as the last one I love the sound Dissimulator has!. they aren't desperately trying to sound like something you've never heard before in an attempt to be 100% original like a lot of other bands try to do. which is good cuz a lot of other bands that do just end up sounding stupid. no instead they focus on righting great music excellent job Dissimulator! Favorite track: This Is Darkness.

Pete Drew This is an amazing follow-up to Factions continuing with the brutal vocals and riffing that album had, Jared Dines is an amazing vocalist who can not only do his own style but can also copy other people's styles for covers. Favorite track: This Is Darkness.

Track Name: /Snāk/ (Ft. Austin Dickey)
Rain Down Fire (X2)

Put on the crown that you made for yourself
You wear it so beautifully
Not a thought, not a care for anyone else
You're just a poison and we are the vaccine

You're just a poison
Dripping off the fangs of a snake
You lack conviction
Your reign will end tonight

And I watched you rise from nothing
Just like a peasant living off the land

You think you're a god but you're barely a man
acting in charge when everything goes according to plan
as soon as you fail you quickly disappear
just like a snake hiding from the heat of the sun

We will set your kingdom ablaze
Rain down fire

Just like a poison we will bleed you from our veins
Cauterize the wound
Take your last breath tonight (take your last breath)
This will be the end, the end of you

And I watched you rise from nothing
Just like a peasant living off the land

Rain down fire
we will set your kingdom ablaze
Rain down fire
You lack conviction

You're just a poison (X3)
We will bleed you from our veins
You're just a poison (X5)
Your reign will end

Rain Down Fire
Track Name: Death For The Dead
When there's nothing left to say
When there's nothing more to do
Where your time has run out
This is death for the dead

Death for the dead
Lying in your deathbed
So go, and feel the anger
shadows dance across the room

Though you scream at the top of your lungs
There's no one there to save you

I am the martyr
I lie here forever
They stand there laughing all around

Will you return to me when you die?
So go on into the night
Just know I will never leave your side
My bride

I am the martyr
Lie here forever
They stand there laughing all around
but I'll return when I am in the ground

When there's nothing left to say
BEETLE JUICE
When there's nothing more to do
BEETLE JUICE
When your time has run out
BEETLE JUICE

When there's nothing left to say
When there's nothing more to do
When time has run out
When time has run out

I am the martyr
Lie here forever

Will you return to me when you die?
So go on into the night
Just know I will never leave your side
My bride

My bride

Death for the dead
Death for the dead
Track Name: Stray From The Lepers
Stray from the lepers
The hate that blinded you begins to dissolve
Pray for the diseased
That they may learn to embrace one another

Stray from the lepers

I see why you see the way that you do
This world hasn't given you much to hold on too
we're united as one and yet so torn apart
stray from the lepers

We're so engulfed with all these thoughts of hatred
over and over and over again
The time has come to stand tall above it all
before it leads to murder

Run and hide
terrified

stray from the lepers
the cowards heart

stray from the lepers

stray from the lepers and run until your feet go numb
don't look back oh God never look back
their hatred blinds them like a knife piercing deep in their eyes
Pharisees (X2)

stray from the lepers
the hate that blinded you begins to dissolve
pray for the diseased
that they may learn to embrace one another

We're so engulfed with all these thoughts of hatred
over and over and over again
The time has come to stand tall above it all
before it leads to murder

Hatred will bind your soul (destroy your shackles)
The cowards heart
Hatred will bind your soul (destroy your shackles)
The cowards heart

Break free the shackles
Don't look back oh God never look back
Break free the shackles
Before it leads to murder

Stray from the lepers
Track Name: This Is Darkness
Will there be a dawn?
This unseen war approaches
Like prey we are stalked
This darkness falls upon us

The darkness creeps in
They hide in the shadows
I can see them creeping
I can hear them breathing

Be on the frontline
Beyond the crowd
Behind the dangerous who shake the ground
Be on the frontline
Beyond the crowd
Beneath the barriers they make no sound

Do not be shaken
By the whisper of his name they will fear you
This is darkness approaching upon us

There is a veil that shields their world from our own
Rip apart the veil
Replace this darkness with light

Will there be a dawn?
Or are we forever fighting this unseen war
Resist the darkness

I'll bring the fight to you again and again
You'll run in fear with your tail tucked between your legs
For the power behind us is greater
Now you will never stand in our way

This unseen war approaches
Like prey we are stalked
This unseen war is upon us

Will there be a dawn?
Will there be a dawn?
Will there be a dawn?
Will there be a dawn?

Do not be shaken
You are not alone in the darkness
Do not be afraid
By the whisper of his name they will fear you

This Is Darkness
This Is Darkness
Track Name: Shadows
I spared your life today
That's a debt I intend to collect!

Rewind the clocks
This is the hour
The tower of Babel

Shoot your arrows towards the sky
You will Behold a king who will not be challenged
now you will wander until you die

There's nothing new underneath the sun
we continue to fight, but the battle's already been won
As we continue to rebel we only bury ourselves deeper into hell

Into hell

Deeper and deeper into the darkness they descend
never to return
never to be seen again

They bear the mark of the fallen angel
An army gathered from the darkest of places
they wrought death upon the land
their hatred consumes everything in their path

They bear the mark of the fallen angel
An army gathered from the darkest of places
they wrought death upon the land
Against their corruption we must make a stand

All hell cannot contain
The power of the risen king
Satan will be defeated
We will stand by and watch him fall

They bear the mark of the fallen angel
They bear the mark of the fallen one
They bear the mark of the fallen angel
They bear the mark of the fallen one

You bear the mark (X3)

Deeper and deeper into the darkness they descend
Never to return, Never to be seen again

I spared your life today
That's a debt I intend to collect
You bear the mark of the fallen angel (Fallen Angel)
Deeper and deeper into the darkness they will descend
Never to return, Never to be seen again
Track Name: Orphans
reform the vile retribution of anguish
Underneath the skin my blood is clogged

My heart stops dead in its tracks
I cry out but no words form
My body is torn beyond the veil

Help me to breathe again
My time is not up yet
I can offer you truth

Here I stand a broken man
My life has come to this end
What legacy have I left behind for you

Pick up your feet
No longer dwelling in the shadows
I cannot save you
I can only show you how

Help me to breathe again
My time is not up yet
I can offer you truth

What legacy have I left behind for you
My King
My King

Here I stand a broken man
My life has come to this end
What legacy have I left behind for you

Cold and alone
We are all orphans
Cold and alone

Pick up your feet
No longer dwelling in the shadows

Cold and alone
We are all orphans
Track Name: The Day Satan Fell
Show me heaven
Show me hell
Tell me of the day that satan fell

Show me glory
Show me grace
let me gaze upon your sacred face

If God was standing right in front of you,
would you spit out hate like you always do.
If God was standing right in front of you,
Would you try to change your fate

Show me heaven
Show me heaven

Show me heaven, show me your face.
Lift me up into your presence.
I want to see,
I want to see

Satan Fall
Face to the ground as his crown was destroyed
Cast down to the earth by
The wrath of a king with the heart of a lion

Did all of heaven weep,
or was there only silence?
When the hour came and his choice was made,
did he know that all his glory would fade?

did he know that all his glory would fade?
Show me hell

How does it feel to know that one day you will burn in hell
for a crime committed against the holy one.
Did you know you would not succeed,
you had too know you would fail against my God.

If God was standing right in front of you,
would you spit out hate like you always do.
If God was standing right in front of you,
Would you try to change your fate

Did all of heaven weep,
or was there only silence?

Did all of heaven weep,
or was there only silence?
When the hour came and his choice was made,
did he know that all his glory would fade?

Show me heaven
Show me hell

Oh no!! my god has driven you away!
Track Name: Killing Time
please God, can you spare some change for a beggar?
Night after night I scream but nobody's listening. (Nobody's Listening)
We are headed down a path where the rocks peel the flesh from our feet. (Nobody's Listening)
How much worse do things have to become before we rise up from the ruins.

We are a generation that will stab you in the back just to get a piece of the pie

Form a line to spare a dime as you watch countless children die
We are "moving forward" but we've never been so far behind
We're All just killing time by putting a knife through every clock that we find
We're all just killing time

Can you hear the cries of desperation?
Can you hear the cries of desperation?
Can you see the fire reduce to embers.

We are a generation that will stab you in the back just to get a piece of the pie

Where did it all go wrong?
When did we lose our way?
How can we fight for each other when we can't even stand our ground?
Where did it all go wrong?
When did we lose our way?
Why do we run and hide as we watch our children die

Can you hear the cries of desperation?
Can you see the fire reduce to embers.
Can you hear the cries of desperation?
Can you see the fire reduce to embers.

Can you hear the cries of desperation?
See the face of starvation

We Form a line to spare a dime as we watch countless children die
We're All just killing time by putting a knife through every clock that we find

KILLING TIME!!!
Track Name: Sycophant
Can you ever forgive me?
I will never forgive myself
I've lost the one I held most dear
All because of my own selfish desires

God forgive me, for I will never forgive myself

Heal me
I scream at everything I am
broken
At everything I am
Free me
For I will never forgive myself
Cleanse me
For I am the disease

I am anger
I am hate
I am hypocrisy (I'll crush your face)

I am anger
I am hate
I am hypocrisy
Don't look at me

You were all that I held most dear
Now all that I regret
My hate has torn you apart
God forgive me
I cannot forgive myself

Heal me
I scream at everything I am
broken
At everything I am
Free me
For I will never forgive myself
Cleanse me

God forgive me, for I will never forgive myself
I will never forgive myself

You were all that I held most dear
Now all that I regret
My hate has torn you apart
God forgive me
I cannot forgive myself

My hate has torn you apart

God forgive me, I cannot forgive myself
God forgive me, I cannot forgive myself
God forgive me, I cannot forgive myself
God forgive me, I cannot forgive myself
