starwing_digital This debut EP came as such a pleasant surprise to me. A fine blend of industrial rock, EBM and synthpop I never expected to hear! I love the dark lyrics and great dance beats. Favorite track: Catwalk.

danmcleifendeth Excellent first release from this talented Finnish EBM/industrial/Synthpop act. Crisp beats, satisfying basslines, and wicked lyrics combine to formulate one of the strongest industrial/EBM releases of 2019.

Acquire this ASAP - This is essential listening. Favorite track: Catwalk.

Track Name: Blowback
Hey man
Get your ass down here
It’s another motherfucking day
And I know there’s nowhere else for you to stay

Oh and press your face against the windowpane
And have a look around
See your hopes and dreams fall six feet underground

So what do you say
When your future and your past fornicate?
They make you who you are today
Two wrongs don’t make one right, they say
But I’ll nail you to your cross anyway

Victim!
That’s all you are
You fought your right for none at all
Blowback!
Your cul-de-sac
We trow the bone and you react
Gunshot!
The sound you wait
Like a bell to make you salivate
Hands up!
And don’t you shoot
I’m here to loot you useful idiots

You are my favourite useful idiot
I’ll nail you to your cross

So what do you say
When your future and your past fornicate?
They make you who you are today
Two wrongs don’t make one right, they say
But I’ll nail you to your cross anyway
Track Name: Bad Battery
Hold down your feelings
You can't afford them any longer, my darling
You got a bad battery
I hear you breathing
Your vital signs are getting weaker every moment
Bad battery

Come feed the beast

You pave my road
With your good intentions
Arms 'round your throat
Strategy of Tension

Maybe you're dreaming
Your medication's getting stronger every day
You got a bad battery
You stopped believing
You heart is growing ever colder, my darling
It's a tragedy

I welcome suicide, a genocide
So my world keeps spinning
I got my battery, it's all I need
Your blood keeps thinning

We got a party at your place
Got a tombstone with your name
We dance around your open grave
Dead or alive, its all the same

I talked to God and God said no
I prayed to God and God said no
I prayed to God and God said no
I talked to God and God said
Track Name: arisTotal
I can't say what I wanna say
I can't think what I just thought
The whole world has gone to gutter
And I don't think that I belong

Terrified of what may come
Terrified of what may come

You always used to have a say
If you wanted to stay or hit the highway
Well I got nowhere to go
I got nothing to show, no, not anymore

Terrified of what I've become
Terrified of what I've become
Track Name: A Day of Concern
There comes a time
Husband and wife
A day of concern
No way away
I found you a hypocrite
Oath and all
He holds the cure
Criminal
He wants your money
He has no soul
From bits to pieces
Your head, your toe

Don’t kill your doctor, because he’s killing you
Doing a favour for me and you
Don’t kill your doctor, because he’s killing you
Lay down your pistol and I’ll try to do so too

You’ve got to fake it
’cause he fakes it too
Doesn’t give a shit
About how do you do
Bent down in an alleyway
Buttfucked and fake
Don’t tell no hate
It’s time to celebrate

Don’t kill your doctor, because he’s killing you
Don’t kill your doctor, because he’s killing you

Don’t kill your doctor, because he’s killing you
Doing a favour for me and you
Don’t kill your doctor, because he’s killing you
Lay down your pistol and I’ll try to do so too
Track Name: Catwalk
Waiting is insurrection
Deep breath a violation
Welcome to the stage
We wait. You suffocate

Under the sun
Under your screen you see death
Under your feet on the ground
Under your skin

Don’t stop
Walk straight
Your razor thin careful little line
Don’t stray
Walk away in to the deep
We die every night we sleep

Don’t stop
Walk straight
Your razor thin careful little line
Don’t stray
Walk away in to the deep
We die every night

Don’t stop
Walk straight
Your razor thin careful little line
Don’t stray
Walk away in to the deep
We die every night we sleep
