Biography

Divine Dissonance is an amalgamation of 5 contrasting individuals all with a paralleled taste for brutal, harmonious music. Always trying to surpass themselves and improve upon each of their own unique styles, these 5 metalheads coalesce forming a relentless beast harboring far more emotion than most with their fierce technical breakdowns, melodious fretboard wizardry, idiosyncratic drumwork, and an onslaught of menacing vocals. Formed in 2003 by drummer Eric McAdams and guitarist Mark Salmon under the name Behind The Nine, they quickly recruited second guitarist Chris Ashmore. Despite playing quite a number of shows and recording a lot of demos, which they generously gave to whoever desired one, they still lacked two important pieces of the metal puzzle. During the summer of 2005 long time friend Maurice Dunlap decided to give microphone abusing a shot and the abuse hasn't stopped since. Half a year later everything seemed to be running smoothly with the last member, Matt Ettien, taking on bass duties and completing the metal mayhem known as Divine Dissonance

Lyrics

Six Feet Deep And Rising

Written By: Reese Dunlap

The sky burns from nuclear winter/ Hearts once ceased shall beat again/
My demise is now my revival/ Your grey matter shall feed my hunger/ Six feet deep and rising to my feet/ Emotionless and stoical is the beast/ That awoke when radiation starts to seep/ The six feet deep abode where I sleep/ Undead/ For when I die/ Fear conquers all/ When I shall rise/ Then you will/ Fall down this hole/ Where the darkness slumbers/
I will scour this earth for your grey matter/ Forget my life as if it's forsaken/ All that remains is zombified/ Forget my life as if that it mattered/ All that I am is zombified/
All you think is science fiction has shortly come to be/ Reference your religious texts and there you'll see all you need/ Me and others share this hunger for the brains of the living/ What a picture perfect posthumous life it's given me/ Undead/ For when I died/ Fear conquered all/ Then I shall rise/ And then you will fall...

Engulfed

Written By: Reese Dunlap

Shed tears of blood/ My dreams are not this sweet/ Engulfed by horror/ My skies will fall to pieces/ The hunger has ate my soul from inside out/ Engulfed by terror/ Soon skies will fall to pieces/ Rue the day when a 1,000 plagues shall spout from the mouths of the ones we once loved/ Once hugged and kissed/ Shared moments of bliss/ Never too distant/ Get pissed and come back without major resistance/ But you insisted true love never existed/ Between you and I/ Open the gates and make room in the sky/ Swallow me whole/ Body and soul 'till I die/ The horror is pure/ Cold darkness wraps around me/ Can't take it no more/ This love cuts much too deeply/ Engulfed by your love/ Engulfed by your hate/ Engulfed by the void/ As I join the fallen/ They will commemorate under false pretenses/ Veracity will eat away at your foundation of fabrication/ You'll turn to no one/ Isolated by a guilty conscience/
And you'll look inside and see a fragment of you're heart is missing/ Then you yourself will be engulfed by terror and remorse for killing what was once inside of your own heart/ No love/ Regret/ Nothing left but regret/ Haunted by torment/ My soul will not forget/ My deepest regrets/ This life is not worth living/ Don't punish yourself/ I'll bleed so you won't suffer/ My deepest regrets/ My life was not worth taking/ Darkness engulfs all those who souls are guilty/ Your tears will not justify this sacrilege/ Shoulders will crumble under a burden you cannot lift/ Don't falter/ Don't break/ Retribution will never end/ Until you are swallowed/ Please don't/ As you fall from grace/
I shall ascend/ And will engulf the sky/ Engulf the sky...

Anonymous Laundromat Bombing

Written By: Reese Dunlap

Die/ Myriatic acid in my veins eats away at my soul/ One spin-cycle away/ Just reach for the pepsi/ The anonymous bomber struck again/ Smoke clears from devestation/ The ruins are laid to waste/ Just a harmless prank/ So innocent yet so guilty/ Now bleach my soul to white/ Fill my eyes with the cries of a hate crime/ I heard it through the grapevine/ Don't ask why/ I shall terrorize/ The recipe for death lies within the anarchist/ T could not imagine this cookbook/ No hooks/ No strings or fuses/ Ruthless and reckless abandonement/ Imagine this anarchist/ On laundry day/ You never saw it coming/ Young girls will reach for something/ Chemical reactions happen/ She was just one step away from death/ Embrace your child/ Escape the chaos/ Seperate color from white knuckle fear/ Get in your car/ Stick in the key/ C4 on your spark plug ends all things to come/ Wash away all my sins/ Tumble dry/ Knit, press and fold your life/ The anonymous bomber struck again...

Sans Deus Ex

Written By: Reese Dunlap

I'm nailed to this crucifix/ Pry these spikes from my wrist/ I've sinned but no one's perfect/ Don't think my soul will submit/ Christ is so forgiving/ How naive can you fucking be/ Blasphemers souls are empty/ As the hopes from false prophecies/ You've made liars into martyrs/ Under your crown of thorns you dream of promised land/ You're just as guilty as us/ Pilate has washed his hands/ Sans deus ex/ The rapture closes in on idols falsely praised/ My brethren gives his soul to Christ in hopes of reaching absolution/ You and you alone made me do this/ Just one more blessing with one wish/ Pull the knife from Christ's side and to the shock of none/ You'll die like the mortal's faith you swindled/ Thou shall not steal or you'll be crucified/ Thou shall not praise this martyr's lies/ Believe in him and you'll have eternal life/ Follow him and you will all crucify...
