Scratching Post-It This band gets me and I get them. Channeling my frustration into these tracks has given me a lot of relief. So much emotion and so damn heavy.

hatepolice Easily the best doom album of the year so far (In a year that saw releases by Bell Witch and Atramentus). Punishing, relentless emotion and intensity from front to back. Album cover is all-time great type stuff as well. Bottom line, these Canadians FUCK. Favorite track: When The Path Is Unclear.

goblintoof Pure emotional brutality; the walls of sound surround you with the crushing weight of society while the deceptively uplifting chorus drags you into the abyss. Listened to this at a very tough part of my life. LONG LIVE VILE CREATURE. Favorite track: Apathy Took Helm!.

1.
we die once our bodies fail our mind but we disappear when our minds leave your memories. fog clings desperately to the ground. a second death burns hotter than the first. tell me who i am if you're all knowing the arbiter of moral purity whose never admitted defeat whose never atoned for mistakes your patron saint of perfection you've canonized the lies you use as scripture your patron saint of respectability i am not the harbinger of your sanctimonious virtue tell me who i am harbinger of nothing
2.
you are lost one by one as you sink as you suffer you will know just how far you have left you are lost one by one As you sink into lethargy giving in letting go when the path is unclear a lifetime of expectation built on generations of accusation you'd adopt the attitude of a storm but the storms want nothing to do with you you'd do well to take heed of the subtlety of the winding stream, of the spider of subversion. the champions of your past conquered nothing, and neither will you. you carved your name deep in the earth those crevices will echo your shame symbols cut clear and bold those crevices will echo your shame no room for ambiguity those crevices will echo your shame in time it will crumble and decay those crevices will echo your shame no longer plagued by the grinding of your spirit all you have doubted your future clouded you can not act with conviction when the path is unclear. you'd cast aside and turn away you'll bare the blight you'll wear your shame you'll never hide we'll carve your name sink, suffer, regret, shame
3.
the vessels of your sin the shamed you've broken down they will not bear your burden they will not bear one shred of your disgrace bow, and open yourself to what is to come. for i have lost my youth and joy for i languish inside of sadness for my heart is full of scorn i pray you, disloyalty blowing through the streets & the valleys of my restless mind of my eldritch thoughts of my uncertainty apathy claws at our doors, talons made of burdens and blights scratching, mawing, persistent all we care for is rotten and rich it shall devour i'm no better torn of the same cloth shrouded in ignorance and flesh let it in apathy claws at our doors, let it in i awoke with the resolve to move a mountain i want to be like those before me who screamed into the great unknown saying "we will not stand for this." we will not be bystanders, we will not stand idly by sleep soundly, tread lightly you who has never slept.
4.
the waves,, the mountains, the reckoning, the end the crash, the shatter our lives are short, time is tenuous sleep with sweet silence beckoning i am the tides; vicious, unrelenting Serrated shoreline carved out, hollowed, by your hand the cairn, it stands atop the mountains the monolith in rubble at its feet the path is dirt and leafs and sinew sheared from this earthen, lifeless husk by your grace, your divinity
5.
when we are dead and elsewhere without us time moves on when we are dead and elsewhere without us nothings withdrawn banish the light, welcome the shadows when we are dead and elsewhere a place between lust and lore i am home among the worms all we care for withers plant me deep within the darkness with grace and mercy i shall bloom all that we care for withers the drought hath pierced the root the holy blissful martyr sleeps, in sickness he will weep when we are dead and elsewhere when we are dead...
