Melt your eyes On the light pouring forth from the seam Hypnotized Like a moth in the mouth of the flame Choose your side Two rival schools whose dogmas collide Learn your lines Speak with conviction be callous and bold The light will tear us down, infecting what we hear and see We shall be rebuilt using divisive ideology Now gather the wood for a stake and a pyre Bring forth the rope and bring forth the fire Demonize that which we’ve been taught to fear Our enemies screams will be lost in our cheers Close your eyes Roll them back and walk through your mind Close your eyes Roll them back and take off your disguise And hide from the light
Divest the excess The apex wanes The pinnacle of our effort Bled dry on display The scales tip with masses of shame, culpable Magnify exponential Sentience unearthed Run the futile course Rules of nature shatter in growth Colliding lifetimes blinded and fused Guilt echoes still sound Rapid vibrations punish cochlea in vile waves, shielded by enmity Stone silence begs pity Stagnant methane ripens the air we need Noxious head swells from what we breathe Depth of impact This terror implant Dream state guide this quaking hand Stagnant methane ripens the air we need Steaming earth friction pour from stress cracks Dream state revive the loss Embolden binding visions Led to ache in vile waves Catatonia


A brand new track from the legendary Zao backed with a fresh new tune from tour mates Yashira!

While Zao fans will rejoice in the sheer awesomeness of this new track, those who might be hearing Yashira for the first time are likely to have their hair blown back a bit as well. The A-Side covers all that we would hope to hear from Zao: Dan's tortured howls complimented by Scott's singing vocals and some crushing guitar/bass/drum work to tie it all together. The B-Side gives us a ton of depth to the release, as Yashira play a powerful blend of doom, sludge, metal and a touch of post- metal in there as well. It's all rather seamless, and this release comes together beautifully!
