Face down, hands on the ground / For generations they've killed and spawned / Forget the gods, forget the soul, flesh to flesh / From the skies, comes the pest / Falling... Calling... / You can feel all the void after all the noise / Everything turns black, silence all around / They feel no regret in everything they've done / Human invaders, bringing the human world
"What's wrong, what's their motivation? / Not a soul left to tell... / The cancerous Human invasion / Leaves no one of us alive" / Hatred we are, / From one universe to the other / On your skulls we will spit... / We are the Human Race! / God closed his eyes / To let you realize / Down here, you're nothing to him / God closed his eyes / Hatred, I am hatred, I'm hatred!
The end of a world - all through hate / The Human Race once again at its worse / The despair, all the screams echoing / No one left alive... / Hands on your face, you are the faceless / R.I.P. all the soldiers / No one left alive, / R.I.P. the fallen / You're nothing at all... / No one to be found, everything dead... / No one to be found, a bullet in his head...
Reached another world, / Where peace and love reign supreme... / The human invasion is spreading all the hate... / Replacing the words, / Where once there was peace, now there's only hate... / Feel this pain / It hurts in vain... / Because no one will ever learn how to feel / So it goes and burns... / With less emotion, you know you're near the end... / A childless mother, a bullet from behind... / We're all dead inside...
Join our forces and kill your own / Ignore your spirit, / Despise love / "I'd rather die..." / The Hate will dominate, and terminate / You alone will dominate / Walk alone, don't look back / Only alone you can face the death / On the final steps, / Make sure you're ready / To eliminate all souls / Enjoy the hate...
Weep to an act of slaughter / They are ones who fall to the act of rage / I cannot handle the hate, the pressure of nothingness / You're just an inch aside... / Sleep to the acts of slaughter / The tragedies happen by your side / Like everyone else, you don't seem to care / And yet, you're just an inch aside! / Too many faces... / End of life - You're despised / Isolation, the quickest way out / To avoid those shallow friends / Returning to the place where I / (Can) revive once more my trust / The choice of the path is mine / Reconnect myself with the energy / End of life / You're despised
Starting with the musical influences, this album is mostly me trying to recreate some of my early metal influences: (early) Fear Factory + Sepultura (Max Cavalera era) + Decapitated (mostly from the record Organic Hallucinosis).
For this record, I had to invite Dirk Verbeuren (from Megadeth), once again, since I love his drumming so F'in much!
It was a blast having him and Adair on board!
It was also amazing to have Miguel Inglês (from Equaleft) and Marco Silva (from Pitch Black), both contributing enormously for the final recording being what it is today!
Lyric-wise the album basically talks about how Human hate and violence destroy cultures and how it will impact other worlds in the future... but once again, check the lyrics in the digipak version and take your conclusions or make your own interpretation! :)
Overall, I think the record turned out really cool!
This time I was able to finish the mix precisely as I imagined it in the beginning, which was a first time for me.
Anyway, I hope you like it as much as I do and enjoyed making it!
