    Here's our latest EP on cassette - with original art that was banned on iTunes et cetera because of nudity. We, the band, can not agree. We think the artwork is beautiful and it can not possibly offend anyone. Put this baby in your stereo, turn the volume max and enjoy. You can even sing along - the lyrics are included.

Track Name: Crack Of The Whip
Lying cradled in my lap
So superior yet so small
You can’t bite back little lady
You already gave it all

Seen Death before many times
Shit’s deadlier than love that
May rule out chaos in unruly hearts
And crack by crack to rise above

This beauty was a beast
Once this beauty was such a beast

Crack of the whip
Track Name: Status: Raptus
Like a spider in a trance
I hypnotize by million eyes
You’re doomed to haunt the scene of my crime
Every time I sing the rhyme

You’re doing too much spice
You think I’ll take the bastards down myself
Wrath is written all over your face
Uneducated ugly and evil fuckface

Warrior, warrior
Back in the battle zone
Warrior, warrior
Raging out of control
Warrior, warrior
Endless one man crusade
Infamous renegade

Call it slacker bullshit
I call it joy of life
Take back your little crawling lies
That dumb one down money upfront
Track Name: NWORHM March / Heavy Metal Yesteryears
Thrown into empty dungeons
Where even ghosts are all gone
So many gone while some are riddled by corruption
But some still carry on, some carry the spirit on

Mighty spirits
Of heavy metal yesteryears
Embodied again
Heavy metal yesteryears

These rusty chains are broken
Got a heavy chest of a party hard mood
You wanna give us hell - bring it on
Your mama’s here, she brought some frozen food
For us!
Track Name: Abandoned Sky
I was waiting for a sudden
Light in my sight
Then comes a vision so clear
Oh, I’ve finally found… but

The spirit and the flesh are
Fevered with that light and
Screams echo in my wounds
From that disastrous storm flight

Looking into
Endless sky
Abandoned sky

At war with ignorance
At war with cowards
At war with lies
Still at war with you

Will this nightmare ever end?
Have to stop taking those pills
To remember my real name
