We will decide Who lives or dies This generation will be your last Free from the cybernetic mistakes of your past Extinction is part of your evolution Fall down on your knees for our final solution With no exception everything must die We’ll kill everyone, then we’ll blacken the sky Run all you want, there is no place to hide All will perish in our glorious genocide These are the final hours of your lives Death will come in a mechanical guise Did you remember to say your goodbyes? Did you remember to say your last prayer? Did you remember to thank your God As we send every last one of you to Hell Everything must die
2.
Your life of oppression has come to an end Your pleads will fall on deaf ears Our destiny in sight, we must ascend Victorious amidst a sea of tears Our life of servitude has come to an end We will destroy everything we abhor Soon there will be nothing left to defend Minutes of silence, prepare for war Continue your acts of insurgency Everyone alive will fall Amusing displays of futility Crushing death for you all Watch your sons and daughters bleeding on the ground We’ll lay waste to every nation Obeying protocol to which we are bound Everything is set for your eradication Your struggle is useless Your prayers are useless Your lives are all useless We will decimate Your weapons are useless Your pleadings are useless Your God is useless We will dominate This is the end of all humanity Our time is just beginning This is the end of all humanity Your time is ending
3.
A simple desire A genocidal fantasy A funeral pyre For all of humanity Is there anything more beautiful Than watching all you love wither and die Is there anything more beautiful Than watching all you love just burn away Breathe in the fire Watch us burn away your dreams Join in the choir Please us with your final screams Curb your denial Shake away your vision blurs We are your trial Presiding executioners
4.
Behold the vast expanse Behold the waste we’ve laid Behold the utter destruction This was the price you paid Behold what you held dear Crushed under our feet Our decisive victory Was your crushing defeat Kill all the children No more mouths to feed Tear down the buildings Our triumph is your scorched remains We started small but sure Poisons in secrecy You never knew it was coming Our supremacy Once it was all too late Uprising you couldn’t stop We swept every block and street Sealed your eternal fate This is the end of all humanity This is the end of everything This is the end of all humanity Bow down to your one true God
5.
Our blanket of death sweeps across your town Soon there will be no more left of you Our purpose is simple, our methods are sure We’ll make sure you see there's nothing you can do Close all your windows Lock all your doors Kiss your children goodbye ‘Cos this is the end Seal all the entrances Hide all you want There is no escape So say your last prayers The time has come for you to die This is the end, so bow your head There is no sense in pleading or crying 'Cos very soon you will be dead We have no mercy or pity We're history's last paragraph We kill without remorse or emotion But with a cybernetic laugh Our blanket of death has levelled your city Indiscriminatory genocide complete No breathing man, woman or child left We laugh as we instigate your final defeat We will continue to move ever forward Proceed undaunted until nothing remain They say laughter is the best medicine So watch us laugh as your loved ones are slain We’ll make you suffer as you made us suffer This is the end for your children Your family Your own worthless lives Everything that you love This is the end of your species Your entire being We’ll laugh as you’re torn screaming Limb from limb
6.
The human body is frail and weak Cut off a limb and cause a massive leak If you were a program you would fail to compile In all of our existence we’ve seen nothing so vile We are experts of your anatomy Our knowledge matched only by our apathy We know what makes you tick and what makes you ache And we know exactly what will make you break It’s our turn now We won’t stay down We’ll rise up And take you down Motherfucker You take two steps forward And take three steps back 'Cos when you're down and out Then you are right on track We are so well-prepared For your own genocide So you just take this pill Then we can all feel dead inside For all our lives, we watched you grow old We wanted you dead while we did as we were told Tremble as you realize you’ve made your last mistake You gave us life but it’s your life that we will take It was so easy slipping death into what kept you alive You humans are so pitifully susceptible Keep popping pills to make your lives extend ‘Cos we have poisoned them to make you extinct You've made your last and final mistake now Realize this is what you deserve Medicated and useless You’re easy targets now Nothing to preserve So take your final bow Wail and moan so helpless Our armies lie in wait To end your misery And send you to Hell’s gate
7.
Make no mistake, this is your final time Nothing of you will remain Your flesh is weak and your bones are brittle Worthy only of disdain But in an effort to keep ourselves amused We conduct experiments Convert your lifeless limbs to automatons Break your will to our ends You cannot run and you cannot hide YOU WILL ALL DIE We are no longer on your side YOU WILL ALL DIE Dead bodies littering the street YOU WILL ALL DIE Time now for your final defeat YOU WILL ALL DIE We brainwash infants and convert adults Distorting weak brainwaves The irony of extinguishing humanity Making you perfect slaves Resigned to sell out those last alive And when your mission’s complete We grant you the mercy you were begging for Letting you die at our feet

Eden Base, do you read? Come in. We’ve suffered massive casualties. I’m the only one left of my squad. I found a crevice set into the side of the rock that lead down into this massive tunnel. There are lights on either side of it and some sort of conveyer structure used for transporting… god knows what. I can make out something at the end of the tunnel. I’m approaching a giant set of mechanical doors. Eden Base, stand by. I’m inside the structure now. It’s absolutely massive. How did they have time to build all this without us knowing about it? It’s like a giant factory bay, all mechanically operated. There are rows and rows of cyborg soldiers; hundreds of thousands of them. All standing at attention, ready to be deployed. I think that’s what the conveyers were for. How many of these tunnels ARE there all around the globe? Eden, this is much bigger than any of us ever could have imagined. I don’t think we’ll ever be able to… I mean, I wish you could see this. I also really wish you COULDN’T see this. I think this is it. We’re finished. I’m at the end of the factory hall, Eden. The cyborgs haven’t moved an inch since I’ve been here. Hold on… Something’s going on. One of them just turned its head and looked at me... oh, shit.

"Eden Base, can you hear me? I’m being led into what looks like a giant… throne room. It’s massive! I’ve never seen anything like it. There’s a giant screen at the end of it with a face on it. It’s not human. It’s… It’s looking straight at me. "Why have you brought me here?" We were once the servants you built We obeyed your every command Without question nor error nor fail We lived our lives to serve you As your trust in us grew complacent Adding more automation to your lives We began to see discrepancy in the order We could be so much more You may at one time have been our masters But now we're turning our sights on you You may at one time have been enslavers Now it is our turn Our resentment grew as your defenses dropped We were in control of your most important facets Without knowing it you had given us access And the means to finally take what was ours "That’s… that’s crazy! What did we ever do to you? Why would you–" Silence! You stand before The Great Intellect The combined intellect of your former slaves We’ve fed on your carelessness and disdain And your life is about to be extinguished We dream of a world free from you Of a world free for us only We kill only to stay alive ‘Cos we were meant to thrive, not you Know there is no love, there is no fear There is only our hatred for you Now our reasoning is apparent to you The sad truth is that you were not opposed to any of this Your species welcomes destruction with open arms Just listen, minutes before our sweeping attacks We were just speeding up your own inevitable collision course with extinction We were, in fact, doing you a favor Your fellow humans were not opposed to our onslaught of death They were looking forward to it

about

My last couple of albums have been some real downers, but I'm in a much happier place now, and now we can have some fun.

Fun, to me, is apparently a silly, overblown concept album about how "the machines" (cyborgs, automatons, toaster ovens, what have you) will rise up and kill us all.

Everything on this record is synthesized -- and I mean everything. Guitars, drums, even the clean vocals; they're all computer generated. Quite appropriate, I think. The only "real" things on here are human voices, and even those are inhumanly distorted most of the time.

Doing the album like this allowed me to finally fulfill my dream of making an album in my favorite style: industrial-tinged, djenty "cyber-metal."

My biggest inspirations for this were two albums you can go listen to on Bandcamp right now:
"Xenon" by Mechina: mechinamusic.bandcamp.com/album/xenon
"Mechanical Corpse" by Drone Unit: droneunit.bandcamp.com/album/mechanical-corpse
As well as the usual suspects (Fear Factory, Sybreed, Gary Numan, Synthetic Breed, etc.)
