MZTN 結成15年にもなるんだけど、音を洗練させながら感覚は若々しく進化する。本作でも楽曲も多彩で素晴らしいアルバムを完成させていて、ブラストビートを炸裂させながらエモーショナルな叫びとメロディを奏でる様は、現在進行形のScreamoを提示しているとも言える。攻撃的で、ラフで激しく、そして刺激的である。2010年後半に入って益々勢力的になっていくというバンドの勢いとしても絶好調な様子が伝わるかのよう。楽曲の1曲1曲は短いので全15曲というボリュームでも体感的にはあっという間に駆け抜けていく。初期のRawなサウンドが好きな方もいるかもしれないけど、今の彼らの音も良い Favorite track: Condemned to Rot.

yavinaaltoarba A more harmonically adventurous takes on some tried and true crustisms mixed in with some more forward thinking elements.

I felt somewhat inspired listening to it for the first time. Hopeful that new and interesting stuff can still be crafted.

Also - I bet this stuff LIVE can really melt ya face off! Favorite track: A Man Made Fear Keeping Me Here.

I used to sleep Now i just stare Neglected in time Becoming negative space A minor setback from you, from you Expressions of sickness taking your health Expressions of sickness taking your wealth Expressions of sickness taking your health Expressions of sickness taking your wealth The beaming struggle of a mind still fleeting There was a light bliss-less & bitter There was a sound timeless & shrill There was a taste blameless with age There was a pain internal & vast Selling your soul for refillable gold The earth tries to move while you're standing still Sleep deprived, motionless, & ill The earth tries to move while you're standing still
2.
A complete disconnection A slave to this filth The future looked bright This vast proclamation that opened the sky The future looked dim Sitting, Waiting, Anticipation Holds me...

Visionless 00:42
Birds can fly No matter what you see The black angel is pressed for time In this life that we lead that is filled with sorrow Burdenless In this life that we lead that is filled with sorrow Visionless Visionless
4.
There's a hole deep in my heart Where happiness used to be It cradles my hand & tells me I'm Dead Out of the clouds The moon came into view Becoming more clear This rotting vessel appears There is a time when the sun will fade away There is a time when the sun will burn away Death, I am Death, I am the sun Trying to capture the day turning cold Trying to bear some piece of mind Trying to capture that moment in time Trying to capture some piece of mind

Out shined, overlooked, underpaid Hoping That There's a God Taking the time of day Hoping That There's a God Breaking the mind away Hoping That There's a God Making the time to say Hoping That There's a God Just realize over time Just realize there's no time Haunted by nightmares Tearing your soul apart Daunted by pestilence Tearing your soul apart Hollow earth at hand Tearing your soul apart Hollow grave at plan Just realize over time Just realize there's no time Void of disdain Void of the sun Void of decent Void of lament Just realize over time Just realize there's no time
7.
Even the longest days come to an end The Devil sold me a key to the end Withering in fear A soulless encounter Gods of disgust sing to the earth This distant blue... This distant blue... This distant blue... This distant blue ambiance Look at me now The fly against the wall I place my hand into the pile of ants Look at me now The trees have all been dead A lifeless gouge singing to the earth This distant blue... This distant blue... This distant blue... This distant blue ambiance Singing to the earth This lifeless gouge remains A Soulless encounter withering in fear Gods of disgust, singing to the earth: "Look at me now!!, Look at me now!!"

Tears of the wretched plague the earth The Mid-day monster has blessed me with a curse Further into the darkest nightmare Deeper into the blackest abyss What hurts What hurts What hurts What hurts To the companies keeping me here Biding my time & wasting my money A man made fear designed to suppress Tears of the Wretched plague the earth A man made fear keeping me here A man made fear keeping me here A man made fear keeping me here A man made fear keeping me here A man made fear keeping me here

Killing the hours in the day Killing the hours in a life time Digging through dissonant flesh to fight the plague Synthetic lies of creation will destroy you over time Over time...
11.
Decent into darkness Punishment for the sick Waiting for judgement day
12.
Sleeping well with distractions counts as a prison in your heart with devotion, devotion... Land of sorrow, Hope for tomorrow, Brings promised decay & devotion The evil that breathes down my neck suffocates the innocent with devotion Pathetic daydream, A box in the ground, Abstract flesh mouth Sleeping well with distractions counts as a prison in your heart with devotion, devotion... Pill sick for days, this lifeless gouge acts as a bleeding compost Pill sick for days, this lifeless gouge acts as a bleeding compost Pill sick for days in my heart I know your health Pill sick for days, this lifeless gouge acts as a bleeding compost Pill sick for days, this lifeless gouge acts as a bleeding compost Pill sick for days in my heart I know your health Earth shaped tomb Earth shaped tomb

Condemned to Rot Condemned to Rot

Plagued by strife Suffering for life A problematic release has gone on for to long A problematic release has gone on for to long I'm done with this earth consumed by man I'm done with this earth consumed by man Maddening Strife Maddening Strife Maddening Strife Maddening Strife Maddening...
