about

FEROCITY is meant to be both an experiment and a challenge in contemporary modern metal. Guitar riffs inspired by old-school British heavy metal and progressive rock, driving, high-energy drumming, and grooving, solid bass are what comprise the foundation of the album. Rhythms derived from extreme progressive artists, a largely layered, dark sound scape, and unexpected melodies add complexity and depth to the album that evokes a range of emotion seldom found in the genre. The vocal style ranges from a powerful, melodic "classic" heavy metal tone, to softer, dark harmonies, to full-bore aggression. The resulting sound is a thick, dark, melodic metal sound with a progressive edge that resonates with fans of hard rock to death metal all around.

Track Name: Digital Rapture
No remorse, no repair for the beaten they say

Thrown down was the crown, is there no penance to pay

Burnt out, burned down, just a memory in dust

Listen now, disallow their neglect


We've all been torn apart, is there an obvious way
To overcome

Blind eyed in the color's maze
These thoughts are obsolete today

We are vacant
Too weak to even say
Replaced by the next contestant
The time was spent to find your own way

Reform, conform

A new breed of digital rapture

Stand still, just for a second

Look down on the world that's left you behind


We've all been torn apart, is there an obvious way
To overcome

Blind eyed in the color's maze
These thoughts are obsolete today

We are vacant
Too weak to even say
Replaced by the next contestant
The time was spent to find your own way

Reform, conform

A new breed of digital rapture

We spend our lives searching for an answer

Freedom, it lies beneath our hands

This new breed of digital rapture has taken me

Explode into vivid amnesia


Blind eyed in the color's maze
These thoughts are obsolete today

We are vacant
Too weak to even say
Replaced by the next contestant
The time was spent to find your own way

Reform, conform

A new breed of digital rapture
Track Name: Dreamstate Queen
Shiver
Eyes like knives
Drawn are
Patterns that bleed

Mirrors
Hall of silent glass
Cry out
Beckon my

Dream state queen
Burden my eyes
Loss of words
Out of focus

Stay near
Transform my sense of longing
Once again

I'll leave my broken will to carry
This tired old design
Deceive my eyes; they're too weary
To see beyond this gaze

Lost hold of the light
Prism of scorn so bright
And I'm nearly too late

I'll leave my broken will to carry
This tired old design
Deceive my eyes; they're too weary
To see beyond this gaze

Lost hold of the light
Prism of scorn so bright
And I'm nearly awake

Try to escape my...

Dream state queen
Burden my eyes
Loss of words
Out of focus

Out of focus
Out of focus
Track Name: Firefly
Cut my cheek on this gleaming horizon
Celestial womb; unborn child of hope
I can't move my eyes from the light
The tears burn and I wander into the afterglow

Must have been chasing that firefly
Fallen down again
On my knees
Lost my balloon to an electric sky
Trying harder than you'll ever know
To hold your lightning
The dying glow
We're so far out now
Lights of the city choke

This endeavor is terminal
Just as the insect is drawn to the lamp
Chasing your color in circles
It was at its brightest as I lost it

Standing on the crumbling edge of my loyalty to a love unknown
I never wanted to be here in the first place
Desire, a single drop that drowned my soul
Hold the hand of death as the earth quakes
Destruct to repair the vanity throne
Fire burns through this vacant mindscape
Bring it down, it was never my own

Fear takes hold
Don't leave my soul to die alone

Kind memories of a warmth I felt inside
Trying to grasp what was never there
I am so high on chance and the hope for someone to make me feel alive
The essence of time decays
The world around me fading away
Except for the glow in the dark of night
Is it worth the chase

Must have been chasing that firefly
Fallen down again
On my knees
Lost my balloon to an electric sky
Trying harder than you'll ever know
To hold your lightning
The dying glow
We're so far out now
Lights of the city choke
Track Name: Eyes Half Open
So much of the day passes by my recognition
my eyes are only half open and clouded by cynicism
Render the world in a fashionable way
Because it's a rare discomfort to see it the way it really is

So mechanize those who have no heart for each other
Because I prefer machine over the coldness of man

Shade the brightness of the sun
Because it is blinding to those whose eyes are only half open

Searching the sky for something
The clouds are untrue
And the wind tells a story just beyond my perception
So ominous it seems; a mirror of my inner self
It shows no warning of what is to come
Repeating the questions, recycling my breath

So mechanize those who have no heart for each other
Because I prefer machine over the coldness of man

Eyes half open
Eyes half open
Track Name: Phantom Misery
I am the son of a pitiless nation
I am the father of a motherless dream
Burdened by the one aspiration
To save my soul from atrophy

In the depth of the trees
Swirling light beaming down
A stone left out of place
Her Midas touch leaving sheen
Past memories are sown
One glance, there's that bitter taste

Such a wicked game you play

Idealized the unparalleled
Dragged down in its absence
Sold the joy for a catastrophe
It's all I wanted
That phantom misery

The chasm in my heart has petrified
Holding to faith so listlessly
So tired and gray once painted bright
The dreaming tide's shattered violently

Idealized the unparalleled
Dragged down in its absence
Sold the joy for a catastrophe
It's all I wanted
That phantom misery

In the depth of the trees
Swirling light beaming down
A stone left out of place
Her Midas touch leaving sheen
Past memories are sown
One glance, there's that bitter taste

Such a wicked game you play
Such a wicked game you play
