Biography

Psycomantium is a melodic metal band that incorporates elements of thrash and death to create their unique sound. The group was spawned in September 2006, following a chance encounter between Dave Khallil and Arik Wagner at a local Lethbridge A.B music store.
Currently the band is preparing to release their self-titled debut album. This independent recording conveys themes of social upheaval and ideological warfare, but also hope for change and world redemption. To promote the upcoming release, Psycomantium will embark on a tour of western Canada and the U.S. during the spring and summer of 2010.
Following a number of member changes, the Psycomantium line up was solidified when founding members Dave Khallil (guitar/vocals) and Arik Wagner (guitar) were joined by Dustin Gergel (drums) and Marcel Puurveen (bass) in mid 2009. Although the group has been together in its current form for less than one year, their combined playing experience totals nearly four decades.
During their short career, Psycomantium have been continually performing live and have opened for a number of touring acts. Some of the most notable of which include Galey record’s Unexpect, and Anonymus, Cyclone record’s Caveat and Wormbox and most recently Practical Art record’s Woods of Ypres.
With the vital combination of talent, persistence and uncompromising musical vision, Psycomantium are poised to ascend the metal ranks and sit among the heroes who they have drawn inspiration.

Lyrics

May These Demons Be Gone

Written By: Psycomantium

I for one would not bless this child
Bring the end, end this lie

(chorus)
I see the day
When destruction reigns
May these demons be gone
Only sulphur remains
May these demons be gone

None will be prepared for what shall come
Pay the price, blood stained eyes

(chorus)

(chorus)

Crush The Oppressor

Written By: Psycomantium

Silence the preaching pigs
Castrate the crooked kings
Tear down the ruling swine
Leave their bones to shine
Wash away past mistakes
We allowed, to take place

(chorus)
I see a way around this cold lie
They’ve held this fraud in motion
so long

Too long we accept their crimes
how can you turn a blind eye
as they thrive
Without reply
regain our control
of this dying world

(chorus)

(chorus)

The End Calls

Written By: Psycomantium

Under rule of a corrupt empire
We serve as their slaves
Altering the world
With no thought, only disregard
Will we be too late?

Our fault, our time, our lives

As I watch, as I wait
The end calls, no escape

(chorus)
Drink for so long
Leaving wells dry
No care for tomorrow
Or who will die

Black days are these
A dark era in our history
We sacrifice life for greed
Delusions fade
And our minds reawaken
We still are too late

(chorus)

(chorus)

Signs Of Fate

Written By: Psycomantium

I will be found, beneath the age
Of living violence, growing slowly
begin this time, live as life falls
Live for no one

(chorus)
Break me down
Signs of our fate
Time lost waiting
Silence remains

I linger now, with what has come
Seething lies form, weave illusions
The seeds have grown, the harvest dawns soon
die for no one

(chorus)

(chorus)
