Biography

This music has not been made to meet any preset requirements or intentionally sound like something that we like and we have always admired, although we all do these things subliminaly. Therefore it doesn’t try to fit within certain boundaries. This music is not made to try to satisfy and entertain you. It has to do the job for us in the first place and then..............then if you like it it’s a big bonus. It’s coming instantly from somewhere out there or from somewhere deep inside, either way it helps us to get through a certain stages of our lives or helping us to take a look at ourselves from an unknown point of view so far. Because it’s coming straight out of spine we feel it and makes it more comfortable, and pleasurable to perform it. It works as a cathartic cure that helps us with our emotions, opinions, experiences and wishful thinkings being wrapped in smite words to be spat out there without any concern of how it will be perceived by the outside world. So however you feel about it, it’s your business. Whether you feel like it’s a worst piece of shit you’ve ever heard and it makes you want to vomit......help yourself, cause that’s out of our concern. At least it won’t leave you numb.

But if it hits your senses in a positive way, enjoy it the same way as we do. It’s been made to entertain us so we can entertain you...

Lyrics

Heaven Sent

Written By: Vladimir Slovak

Heaven-Sent

I hear the roar, even though I’m deaf
I see the faces, although I’m blind
I ask these questions in my head
Thoughts I can’t erase from my mind

I wish I could throw them into the sea
God make me like I used to be,
Please heaven send the rain
Take the pain and wash it away

All the scars need some time to heal
but the ones inside never disappear
I wear these stigmas against my will
This pain is mutilating overkill

I wish I could throw it into the flames
Please excuse me for who I am
Heaven sent the tidal wave
Showed the anger and washed my smile away

All these questions they drive me insane
Why it happened, God didn’t explain
No clue how long this sickness will last
I died yesterday, now dwell in the past

Hey God would it help if I prayed
Will these nightmares ever fade away
Please heaven send the ray
Break the clouds and show me the way
/Give me the strength/

Karma Sentence

Written By: Vladimir Slovak

KARMA SENTENCE
Music and Lyrics by Vlad

I have learned the only way how to glut this bloodlust
Nobody understands this is a call of a must

I see the fear, in your eyes
Insufficient time to realize,
I need again, this experience
Your painfull scream is pumping up my veins

I like to see you paralyzed
I need to feel that fear in your eyes
It blew my mind, what a taste
I love those drops of blood on my face

I don’t believe
In retribution
There is no proof
It’s just a self-delusion

Look into my eyes
‘cause I am the proof
And you’ll see yourself
Cut up
praying for peace
you lame pile of shit,
you never gonna get it

Disease of sanguinariness is stepping on my threshold of pain
Agony is thrashing me, impossible to withstand

I see the evil, in your eyes,
I see that you have been mesmerised,
I feel your hands, on my neck
I hear you breathing, behind my back

I hate to be victimized
I wish you could see this world through my eyes..
I wasn’t taken by surprise
Shame I couldn’t choose your disguise

If you don’t believe
In absolution,
You’ll experience
Both sides of execution

You want to see me scared
You want to hear me scream
You want to see me
Suffer
begging for life
you lame pile of shit,
you never gonna get it

I see the evil, in your eyes,
I see that you have been mesmerised,
I know that feeling, to hold a knife
I stained my hands in my former life

One single day, no excuse
You will find yourself in my shoes
In future life, for this thing.
You’ll be doomed because you have to be victim

Or next of kin
Torn within
Born to bleed

Predictable

Written By: Vlad

Light me up,
Cast the spark, entertain me more and more
It’s time to relish, like we’ve never done before
Tempted to visit my old society
Typical menace to a frail sobriety
.
Inside out,
What eats me all the time I haven’t figured out
So dazed to comprehend all the ins and outs
Running in circles, chasing my tail
I need a pill to alleviate this hell

These vicious itches, impossible to scratch
Where is my faith, while I’ve been thinking on the edge
I fear it’s wrong, but I have to quench this need
I’ll find a reason, to justify my deed

It’s getting out of hand, I have to draw the the line
The crack is getting bigger, between myself and I
The only wish is to make it through the night
Playing a puzzle with a pieces of my mind

Green, red, white,
Blured tonight
More and more
Grab the straw
Drink, drag, blow
No control
One more touch
I think this is too much

I rubbed my eyes
Looked in the mirror, I think this is too far
The horizontal view is unlike the perpendicular
Peeling shock of my face, what did I expect
It’s hard to stop this predictable effect

I didn´t care, cause it didn´t make sense
until an action turned into a consequence
This overload I bear, really fucked me up
one more gram and I swear I give it up

Take a bite
of the night
No control
Rock ’n Roll
Drops of blood
Faulty crud
Locked in clutch
I think it’s way too much

Anachronic

Written By: Vlad

ANACHRONIC

I let you rub my eyes, up until I realized
Until I figured out how to read between the lies
But some things should remain beyond the public comprehension
Hey my Lord can you tell me what you see,
When you look around

Sweet incomprehension, vague and filtered information
Fill our steps with pride into a creepy situation
Where sweet intoxication fuses blackened destination
Until we will be ruled and controled by some

Unorganic being,
You’re trying to be our king
But some can see the link
(I hate)Your creepy lingering
Let us be, You motherfucking thing

What the, what the, what the, what the, what the, what do you want
Why the, why the, why the, why the, why the, why did you come along
What the, what the, what the, what the, what the, what do you need
When the, when the, when the, when the, when the, when will you leave

Some think they fuck with system, but the system fucks with them
But if they had a clue, they would fail to comprehend
Enjoying juicy steak in the comfort of deception
No one has a wisdom, of the system of these

Anachronic kings
Pulling by the strings
But we can see the links
(I hate)
Your creepy lingering
Let us be, You motherfucking thing

What the, what the, what the, what the, what the, what the fuck do you want
Why the, why the, why the, why the, why the, why did you come along
What the, what the, what the, what the, what the, what the fuck do you need
When the, when the, when the, when the, when the, when the fuck will you leave

Do you think we do believe
Do you think we’re blind to see
How long do you think that you can be
A greedy reason, blinded justice, guiding leaders of society

Devil's Hair

Written By: Vlad

DEVIL’S HAIR

Desensitized, too numb to feel
Looking for something that could set you free
Yes, you’re the one who failed to keep control
Devoid of mind, you try to trade your soul with me

What is the way out of this long despair
right through the comfort of an arcing chair
Reek of the burning misgivings in the air
This bitter taste is spreading everywhere, fiery devil’s hair

Hey...You
Now, this voice will explain you what to do
Hey,
Order, basic instinct deactivate

You...Hey
Now, my eyes will blaze you the way
Hey
They, will bury their fear in your grave

Last look is dimmed by overhelming ampere
Right down the tunnel, straight into the flare
Don’t sheer, don’t lag behind, stick with the flow
You can’t get lost, Just follow rife devil’s hair

You...Hey
Now, devil will show you the way
My friend
Just reach out and grab me by the hand
