Biography

Industrial Metal? Cyber Metal? Trance Metal?

Whatever it's being called this week, Nanochrist pair up distorted guitars and buzzing synthesizers in an attempt to drag metal by the hair, kicking and screaming, into the 21st century.

Reviled by the so-called "purists" of metal and electronic music alike, Nanochrist gleefully offend both groups by having the unmitigated audacity to blend multiple genres into one cohesive whole.

Much like their hometown of Toronto, Canada, Nanochrist feel that their cultural mosaic of musical genres is their greatest strength, despite the jeers of the confused and ignorant, who desperately cling to their outdated prejudices due to a pitiable musical xenophobia.

Nanochrist's 7th album, "Freedom Through Extinction" was recorded in the band's studio during the winter of 2015/2016, following the release of their "Information Disease" EP.

Lyrics

Sleep Guardian

Written By: Scworm

Isolated to my mind
Cut away from human kind
Solitary by design
No desire to read your signs

Afraid of achievement attention it brings
Raised expectations yanking your strings
Afraid of connection exposing insides
Revealing psychosis affirming your lies
Afraid of intelligence wounding your pride
Tweezing a brain that's lacking inside

You'll never be
You'll never be my saviour
You'll never be
You'll never be the one I cry for
You'll never be
You'll never be
The one I scream for in my sleep

Afraid of conjecture to weather the storm
That voicing opinion is welcoming scorn
Afraid of ideas in seminal force
The power to recast and alter our course
Afraid of surviving destruction of earth
And forced to bear witness to mother's rebirth

You'll never be
You'll never be my saviour
You'll never be
You'll never be the one I cry for
You'll never be
You'll never be
The one I scream for in my sleep

Isolated to my mind
Shut away from human kind
Solitary by design
No desire to read your signs

Forcefeed

Written By: Scworm

Forcefeeding you sanity
Teaching you humility
Borrow some humanity
Cutting free from this disease
Human spill of programming
Leaking out into the sea
The fish are watching MTV
We couldn't let them be

Cold devoid of energy
Soul defeating latency
Devolving back into the sea
Suffocating synergy
Stop your feeble mind's resistance
Sever ties to this existance
Surrender will breaking free
Suicide though apathy

Faces now look all the same
Frozen soulless masks
Brimming with disdain
Perform your neverending tasks
Every day the same old thing
Swamped in mediocrity
Uniform pressed flat and clean
Consumed by a machine

Cold devoid of energy
Soul defeating latency
Devolving back into the sea
Suffocating synergy
Stop your feeble mind's resistance
Sever ties to this existence
Surrender will breaking free
Suicide though apathy
