Bask in the white light of sterility. No harm, no foul, no soul. No heartbeat, heartbeat. Pendulum is tipping. No center to hold. The Hateful bathe in the blood of the bold. Tucked into bedding like a body bag. Tongue fills my mouth like a gag. Gorge rising uncertain. Sleepless, staring at nothing. Self loathing, unworthy. Head throbbing, pressure crushing. I am the first. I am the thirst. I am the curse. I am the worst. Fuck, I am the worst. Sinking. Bask in the silence of obscurity. No harm, no foul, no soul. No. Don’t speak. Don’t speak. No clockwork is ticking. No spirit is left. No foolish hopes remain. No will. No depth. Revelation. Intention.
I am a dog. Put me down. Erase my name. Don’t mark my grave. I am a dog . Hateful hound. I am Jesus and you are the nail. Shadows, clouding the path, straining the thread. Forced hand, pushed to the edge, there's nothing left. Bind me, carve my sins in my skin again and again. The grave is my cradle, and I have been raised. There is no fate except what we make for ourselves. Draw the curtain down. I will drag this whole world down.
Silence upon the snow As above so below Blood boils in the veins What secrets to gain? Winter rose hold thy tongue What is done is done Abrasax come to me So I may see everything Whispers hushed upon lips The noose and tongues do slip What may come after this? Vast endlessness I wandered where the lights grew dim I wondered what had become of them Seven: Our numbers thin (chitin blood and bone) Destined to be alone again (born of wretched spawn) The wolves are howling The horns are calling Seven sirens The frost is falling From under the shroud of flesh They shed their ruse of skin Stolen beneath the depths Abomination begins Torn from the realm of dusk Praise be to Atargatis Forget the begotten one Forged in fires of lust March me towards Asphodel Bury me at thy feet Not in this watery hell Not in this brackish sea Upon these hulls of rot Repaired by skillful hands The ship worms feast their lot Lost to the eyes of men Penumbra of a god Blocking out the sun Taste of the blood divine Taste of Leviathan Itch oh ye mortal lungs Abandon death where life is done No qualms here among The lonely aeons Birth of the drowned one Howls of the wolves are gone Swollen, cold, and blue Dead eyes see anew The omen sign is traced Uponst thine shrouded face Take your place among The words of the siren’s song


“On the first single, MACHINIST! deliver a straightforward wave of anger and angst in musical form; every instrument sounds like it was produced for maximum heaviness and vocalist Jeff Hill amplifies that with an emotive performance.” - Decibel Magazine

"...a glacial-paced blend of doom, sludge, and post-rock." - BrooklynVegan

"'Bask in the White Light' from MACHINIST! packs venom-laced sludge that feels like a careening rockslide, with scorching riffs, smashing drum blasts, basslines that sound like huge chunks getting ripped out of the earth, and maniacal vocals. [...] 'Muirgeilt' by DEAD HAND is similarly tense, [...] the hypnotically building track features roared vocals guiding a mix that also packs incinerating guitar riffs, ground-cracking drum hits, and quicksand-like basslines." - Captured Howls

"DEAD HAND’s track, "Muirgeilt", reminds me of retired Salt Lake City doom group Subrosa before hitting you with an ass-beater riff. You can hear inspiration ranging from Primitive Man, Sumac, Gojira, and more as DEAD HAND takes you through an emotional journey as the song progresses." - Emilio A. Acosta
