SlashedSucubus I haven't been all that much interested in metalcore these past few weeks, been trying to rekindle my love for pop and electro, but here, man, this is why I love metal so much, you can do like everybody does and sound good, or change things up and be amazing just like here, keep it up guys, really like it. Favorite track: Exodus Black.

WintermintP Just when you thought metalcore can't evolve, this is the band that proves to you otherwise. With new melodic fast-paced elements coming from the left and nu metalcore elements from the right, these guys breathe hope back into the metalcore genre.

I managed to buy the CD this time, and I was surprised by how much artwork went into the booklet. It even made me wonder if the pictures were photographs of real sculptures.

If I were to select a favourite track, however, there is a clear winner this time: "Lone Wolf". The uplifting lyrics as well as the abundance of fast-paced parts really makes this song stand out. The guitar melodies are always welcome and the only thing missing is a guitar shred solo.

Instrumentals-wise, I really loved "Pariah" thanks to the fast-paced overall nature as well as the fact that there's a guitar solo in it. The rest of the instrumental really sounded innovative and immersive.

Lyrics-wise, two honourable mentions are "Avalon" and the title track "Deathwatch" thanks to the lyrical themes in them that show you the truth as to what the 21st Century has become. "Deathwatch" specifically has fitting lyrics and instumental that really make this song well-executed. "Avalon" on the other hand, must be praised for its, again, innovative instrumental.

WintermintP Favorite track: Lone Wolf.

Pariah 04:13
I take pride in the real shit And i am tired of bodies with hollow eyes staring back at me Exposing the sickness White light fills the void of a gloom Yeah, now let the arrogance thrive But i know you're a mirror of a fake reality Distorting the truth to cash in on glory Within the heart of violence We are surrounded by the heat of a wildfire Relentless disease You can hide but i am calling you out, so here we go You think your bridge is timeless? Keep living your life on a knife-edge Count your steps, tread lightly This is the end of the road Deceived Sat back, strapped down and make us watch the world bleed Still i'm resistant to the portraits that haunt me Pathetic addiction fueled by false satisfaction Comfort in the limelight But your time is running out You know your time is running out Within the heart of violence We are surrounded by the heat of a wildfire Relentless disease You can hide but i am calling you out, so here we go You think your bridge is timeless? Keep living your life on a knife-edge. Count your steps, tread lightly This is the end of the road Now that the hours have become the hazard I put a gun to the face of your morality Down on your knees and beg for forgiveness Put your word to the test, become the catalyst

Savages 04:11
Embrace the violence Or seek for relief Witness the worst of humanity Invader of justice Corrupt the intelligence Bring it all down to an end Bring it all down to an end Lights like thunder Cripple the weak Through the clouds of crimson they fall Demolisher of the world as we know it Caught between the bullets and bombs We die where sulphur remains Relentless genocide Designed by toxic clouds Disintegrate body and soul Let the shockwaves carry our pride Through this wasteland we once called home Nowhere to run Crumbling structures crushing the young Nowhere to hide Begging and praying to get through the night Lights like thunder Cripple the weak Through the clouds of crimson they fall Demolisher of the world as we know it Caught between the bullets and bombs We die where sulphur remains Burn! Blow me into pieces I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees Through the clouds of crimson they fall Demolisher of the world as we know it Caught between the bullets and bombs We die where sulphur remains Death is not my destiny

Check it So now the walls are closing in One inch from the edge and you're ready to drop You had your shot and you blew it Quick sand, stuck in your brain, you're nothing but a slave Don't waste my time I've got nothing to prove I'll put you down this ain't your faction to rule Stakes rise, i am counting the days before the endgame And i will burn the f****** vile These streets remain but it's wearing thin So step back motherf***** because it's time for the truth I hope one day it will sink in So step back motherf***** because we are on the move Yeah! Betrayal, within the lies and delusion Your split tongue speaks a devilish slang Severed the ties and now you'll spend your days in bitter regret Convicted, another nail in the coffin Pure greed in your renegade act You tried to test me, but you fell six feet deep This is state of dominance Yeah! State of dominance! Eyes locked on the stacks, and you took it A lesson learned Now living with eyes in the back of my head This time I won't turn my back on you I'll rip your f****** mask Two faced disgrace Eyes wide open but you're not awake Yeah! Betrayal, within the lies and delusion Your split tongue speaks a devilish slang Severed the ties and now you'll spend your days in bitter regret Convicted, another nail in the coffin Pure greed in your renegade act You tried to test me, But you fell six feet deep This is state of dominance! This is state of dominance! State of dominance! This is state of dominance!

Soul Sleeper 04:19
Break the silence Destruction from within Beneath my flesh and skin Consumed by my own reality Trapped between life and death My world starts caving in Over and over and again and again So broken down My mind is fragile But still standing and ready to fight So broken down Losing the battle There is a reason why my flame has survived Fear nailed my tongue to my teeth I will remain silent before the storm Drifting in solitude No sign of awareness Give me a rope to hold on to And let me rise from the ashes Drowning in my thoughts I'm sinking further and further Gasping for air But I can't save myself from this nightmare So show me a sign Reach out and set me free From my uncertainty The agony is killing me Burning from the inside Cleanse me from this plague I am alive, I am awake Lift me off my feet To touch the sky Let the clouds surround me The end is nigh Behold the heavens before i sink into the mist My mind is strong, my soul persists Drowning in my thoughts I'm sinking further and further Gasping for air But I can't save myself from this nightmare So show me a sign Reach out and set me free From my uncertainty The agony is killing me

Nothing but a fake prayer! Nothing but a fake prayer! Said it once Said it twice Yeah! Nothing but a fake prayer! Ain't gonna fool me son Not gonna take me down Nothing but a naysayer Pulling the strings has left you tangled Wrapped around your throat, unable to breathe The pressure is rising. You're feeling unsettled Is this your downfall? Is this what you wanted? Trapped in this system, a prison, you're feeling constricted, no freedom, it's so twisted I guess friendship has a price For you to pull out a fucking knife! So stab me in my back At Least my blood is pure I got my mind set on my goal I know what i am fighting for Get up! Get up! Show me what you've realized now?(nothing) Yeah! You will never fly When you're riding lies Running your mouth every time Yeah! Now you've unleashed the beast That resides in me Killing all my enemies So stay the fuck away from me No love! No loyalty! And now you sit down and wonder How everything you had slipped away Poisoned surroundings leaves you alone and afraid I hope you stay that way In the end it was all just a game Motivated by personal gain It's so insane I guess friendship has a price For you to pull out a fucking knife So stab me in my back At Least my blood is pure I got my mind set on my goal I know what i am fighting for Get up! Get up! Show me what you've realized now?(nothing) Yeah! You will never fly When you're riding lies Running your mouth every time Yeah! Now you've unleashed the beast That resides in me Killing all my enemies So stay the fuck away from me No love! No loyalty! Nothing but a fake prayer! Nothing but a naysayer! Unstoppable force Straight through the barricades Light it up, Set it all on fire We'll break it down Break it down with this new shit Break it down with this new shit Yeah! Beat down Spit out Left to rot The aftermath of greed, now motherf***** bleed Eternal suffering is what you've signed for Stay shackled, or choke in your own greed Yeah! Get up! Get up! Show me what you've realized now?(nothing) You will never fly When you're riding lies Running your mouth every time Yeah. Now you've unleashed the beast That resides in me Killing all my enemies So stay the fuck away from me No Love! No Loyalty!

Exodus Black 03:46
Leave in the dust In a state of defeat The day of reckoning is finally here Thorn in the flesh Leaves you six feet deep Envy the slaves of the system Bending and breaking your vision Insidious Treacherous Cutting all ties Hold your tongue for the distant Yeah! Sink into the abyss You had your shot but you've missed What a shame A bad game, just like your aim You're looking around But there is no one else to blame You can beat me to my knees I will stand up Let the light surround me I will remain Lost your sight in the madness Under the wreckage you managed to challenge The pack So f*** that The light that gave you life will outlast Stuck in a broken hourglass In need for a remedy For you to see This is reality You'll never find peace within You'll never find peace within You'll never find peace within You'll never find peace within Look into my eyes And tell me what you see Can you see the fire? Can you feel the heat? A burning desire Aching to watch you bleed I will prevail I will succeed

Deep beneath the skin In the back of my mind I am relieved from all color Letting my thoughts stray Swallowing a conscious life by given right I am the ground that i'm buried in By the dirt under my nails 9 years poison runs through my veins And still it's dark beneath the sunlight Straight suffering Twitching eyes Yeah, contest the sanity Murder the innocence Murder the innocence! This is death by the gallow I give you nine for hell! Murder the innocence! Nine for hell Imminent demise draw the life out of my blood This is nine for hell What is there left to say Just cut my tongue out Consume the pills that make me bitter Facing my death without the sedative Biting down on fear didn't make things clearer You think i'm rich but there's nothing left 9 years poison runs through my veins And still it's dark beneath the sunlight We're counting casualties Nine for hell Imminent demise draw the life out of my blood this is nine for hell what is there left to say just cut my tongue out Nine for hell Nine for hell Nine for hell

Lone Wolf 03:44
Back up Don't let it consume you These f****** snakes are out there to kill you Fearless Dauntless We'll be the home for the heartless Fight with your mind But let the heart decide So break it down and survive So overwhelming but yet so hollow Forget your sorrows it's time to let go Cast your light And let the darkness inside fade away The universe reveals a path So you won't go astray Take one step at a time And in the end you'll see We're not so different you and me Break free from agony Break Free! Arm up And witness the pale horse Marking the blind Waiting to strike Aren't you sick and tired of all the blood that surrounds us? RISE UP! So let the pure blooded lead you Protect you after all you've been through Together we will conquer it all So pick up the hammer to break the mold Cast your light And let the darkness inside fade away The universe reveals a path So you won't go astray Take one step at a time And in the end you'll see We're not so different you and me Break free from agony Break free from agony We're breaking these walls To end the misery With an army of broken souls We'll march for victory

Avalon 04:03
Collect your bones and get ready to fight a losing battle Silence denied, but these cuts, they speak The plot will put you at the bottom of the barrel And now you've become what I want you to be Vicious, hateful, cold-blooded murderer You see it in my eyes, my malevolent sin Thick lies leave no hope for your tomorrow They call me slayer of the innocent Trust me, take my justice Show me all the vices of your sanity Traitor? can you prove it? Let's make a deal, don't you know the truth shall set you free? Don't you know the truth shall set you free? Yeah! Systemized corruption Don't you know the truth shall set you free? Systemized corruption Don't you know the truth shall set you free? We built this place on the pillars of your sorrow I have been drawing for blood and i am confident The cards we dealt form a verdict that's hollow Now that you understand, how do you plead? how do you plead? Systemized corruption The unforgiving breed Face to face with an invisible enemy Systemized corruption The unforgiving breed Face to face with an invisible enemy We built this place on the pillars of your sorrow I have been drawing for blood and i am confident The cards we dealt form a verdict that's hollow Now that you understand, how do you plead? Systemized corruption Don't you know the truth shall set you free? Systemized corruption Don't you know the truth shall set you free? Systemized corruption Don't you know the truth shall set you free? Systemized corruption Don't you know the truth shall set you free?

Glitch 04:12
Force feed the hopeless ones Another day another man made disease How can we f****** breathe When we blindly believe the elites Force fed By those who hide in plain sight Hiding behind a mask like cowards All bark no bite Rising skylines for us to behold Buried in the dirt We're digging their gold Buried in the dirt We're digging their gold We are awake but weary We are awake but weary We can't be saved, we're far to gone Our blood keeps spilling Ignorance fuels the rising fall Force fed till we drop dead Force fed till we drop dead We are a dying breed A self destructive form of art Influenced and hypnotized We're designing our demise We're designing our demise Force feed the hopeless ones Another day another man made disease How can we f****** breathe When we blindly believe the elites While we blindly believe the elites Force fed Till we drop dead
