Review from Oriffs Shop:
SKULL INCISION – Compendium - review
USA – 22 titres – 70mn
Bordel !!! 70mn !! ouff! Ça a interet à etre bon! Bon pochette deja 100% barré ! ça sent le bazard GRIND / POWERVIOLENCE ou alors un truc bidon NEW SCHOOL METAL a rien comprendre ! sinon bon ! tu te vois avec ça en TSHIRT ??!! pas terrible hein ! pochette qui donne pas envi ! c’est loupé d entrée de jeu. Le tout 100% PRO. Hifi ! bam !!! bon on es bien chez les bourrins ! rare encore maintenant de retombé dans le bourrin GRIND autres que du GORE parceque ici nous voila belle et bien dans le GRIND CORE. Mais tu me dira normal ! parceque ici on est tres loin de la scene METAL a proprement dit. On viens du SLUDGE. Du gros bazard barré mix SLUDGE / GRIND. Avec de l acceleration et de la lenteur pire que le DOOM ! Nous voici dans le monde du GRINDCORE mec ! mixé au SLUDGE des plus malsain. Sauf que tu es pas dans la violence POWERVIOLENCE ! c’est plus l accé barré qui est mis en avant. Le SON est TERRIBLE ! le mixage SUPER ! les riffs BARRES SLUDGE ! la voix GRINDCORE a plein tube ! bien criarde ! Mais il y a cette petit touche INDUS NEW SCHOOL METAL qui est de trop ! je trouve ! dommage ! plus bourrin c etait encore mieux :! Bref un skeud qui va faire chier pas mal de monde ! ça tabasse ! a ecouter rapidement !

Track Name: Mental Stagnation
Buy me a new world that fits this indignation.
Buy me a place for growth, not stagnation.
We can't become.
We can't grow.
We can't grow past our greed and childish superstitions.

Science can save lives and show us so many great truths.
But instead we love a man, mind as clouded as his being.
Educate.

We are all prophets.
Track Name: Song of Ægir
The open sea is home to me,
The blue holds balance, brings life anew.
The remains of old, you toss away.
They drown and become my air, my food, my home.

Killing my home, means poison your home.
Killing their home, means poison our home.

Where do they hide?
When we run them dry.
They cannot die.
For our lives are tied.

The remains of old, you toss away.
They drown and become my air, my food, my home.

Where do they hide?
When we run them dry.
They cannot die.
For our lives are tied.

What if it's lost?
You haven't a clue.
We can't take the past.
What's done can't be undone.
Way down.
Track Name: Monster
Shelter/Structure to falter, deceiver,
Safety is a forgotten luxury.
Alleyways to hide in.
Streets to die in.
Darkened clouds round every corner.
The gloom, the beast.
Monstrosity.
Seven stories tall.
Chaos, destruction.
The end never brought four horsemen,
But only one.
The decider, the gluttonous, the inevitable, invincible, machine.
339 teeth.
The end never brought four horsemen,
But only one.
The decider, the gluttonous, the inevitable, invincible, machine.
Track Name: Watch Me Falter
Housed up in your cage, pillow full of mace.
Your prey, you're trying to find it.
Track me down, undo your muzzle.
You're where you'd like to be, right between me and everything I've worked for.

Watching me falter, raise yourself higher.

Push me down.

I've no time for the likes of you.
Go back to your dope and cope.
With your fragile significance.
And your internal loneliness.
You are a plague rat.
I am the flying bat.
Stay away from me, I may be veg, but I'll draw blood when I'm attacked.

Watching me falter, raise yourself higher.

Push you down.

The sea has different boats,
Sinking and floating,
Life has different folk,
Some are parasites.

And you will not be,
Watching me falter, raise yourself higher.
Track Name: Apathy
Sitting, praying, sleeping on the job.
Blackened, ashened, windowpanes.
Beyond that fire and poison air.
Ashes rain down.
What to do?
Just sit.
Sit and wait.
Wait for god.
Wait for police.
Wait for presidents.
Wait for firemen.
Wait for governors.
Wait for kings.
Wait for fathers.
Wait for heroes.
Wait for mothers.
Wait for soldiers.
Wait for fighters.
Wait for who?
Massive failure.
Track Name: $ui¢ide
39 years old.
Home mortgage for two lifetimes.
Payments for a car already gone.
Two hungry children,
and one unborn.
Fifty-hour weeks,
$100 to name.
Suicide.

Purchase insurance,
Rack up premiums,
Pay your bills one last time.
Quit your jobs, say goodbyes.
For your family, suicide.

Grey cities, grey skies.
Gas masks to walk outside.
Know your place, know your worth,
Kill yourself, join the herd.

The future is bleak.
Your income is weak.
Kill yourself,
So your family can eat.
Track Name: R.T.A.C.F. 1
With no limits, expanding world.
Shrink mind.
Falling up a spiral staircase.
Fall.
Penknives in my back.
Hair raised like needles.
Exit from your mind.
Falling through each level.
Inside and outside.
Track Name: R.T.A.C.F. 2
Can't escape from nothing.
Darkness darkness cold.
Light shoots from your mouth as you scream,
"Fine."
Blasphemous release.
Pulling on the universe's ropes.
Track Name: R.T.A.C.F. 3
Master of purgatory,
Commander of emptiness,
Rebel against yourself,
And imprison the rebellion,
Cycle endless cycle,
What now shall be done?
Track Name: R.T.A.C.F. 4
Build.
Brick by brick, roads of death.
Abandoned by all codes,
Maps can't be led.
Survivalists shan't be discouraged,
The final prize is sleep.
Cold maddening sleep!
Rest easy forever.
Track Name: The Forest Spirit
I've held the guard for as long as I've known.
Protecting her from evil beings that lore has told.
She keeps the world and my heart in balance.
Providing me with the utmost strength and

I would journey through the seven seas and back,
Thwarting all my enemies for her hand.
If she were taken to the darkest world,
I wouldn't rest until she's in my arms.

Your roots are long, deep in the ground.
You grabbed my heart, now I am bound.
You bless those with deaf ears.
But I am yours, forevermore.

Little spirit take woman's form for me.
Just for a moment.
I must pledge my love for thee.

I would journey through the seven seas and back,
Thwarting all my enemies for her hand.
If she were taken to the darkest world,
I wouldn't rest until she's in my arms.

Your roots are long, deep in the ground.
You grabbed my heart, now I am bound.
You bless those with deaf ears.
But I am yours, forevermore.
Track Name: Earth
Where have we gone so wrong?
So many died for no cause.
A world so vast and beautiful,
Has no need for wars.
I don't want this all to die.
So much growth, art, and light.
The road we're on looks so sad.
If only we saw this coming.
We should have turned back,
Long ago.
Save our home.
Save our world.
Track Name: Sand
With what fingers I have left to crawl,
Escape will bring truth.
Caves, abyss, crevice,
Sand forever in my eyes.
Inner strength unlocked.
By and for my enemy, simultaneous.
Mistakes, regret, death,
The plot of your biography.
