Jackson Kelly Amazing death metal band. Incredibly melodic. Incredibly talented. I was very impressed with the way the bass punched through the mix. It seems that bassists today are discarded because they just play what the guitar plays, which lends the creativity to suffer. This was not the case. Please keep up the work. Keep releasing music! Favorite track: Disregard All Claims of Sanity.

Kevin James Saw these guys play last night at Cherry Street Station. Amazing metal by extremely talented musicians. Kyle is a fucking beast.

Track Name: The Catherine Wheel
We have arisen
From the blade of the guillotine
Our bodies may have been severed
But we still pursue this endeavor
now

We are the response
Of your cries for blasphemy
We bring upon you
Unreciprocated ill intent

I Will see that limbs are broken
Will leave you there to rot
For unreciprocated
Ill intent
Track Name: Sublevels
Always there’s an end with never knowing Just how much it was worth
A glimpse of what you thought it should have been has turned and taken it’s worst
ANGRY – for so much undone
BITTER – knowing all time is gone

Sublevels
Views of the end

You thought you'd done your best
Your best was nothing less
Nothing less than a blur
Of anger and regret
You wasted all your time
Subdued and fucking high
A drug cant save you now
How's it feel that you’re dead, to, the, world
now

Knowing what you could have changed has left you long before you could act
Mortality, a distant gift, will leave your life a meaningless glimpse

REGRET- you could have changed
ACCEPTANCE – it's all over now

Sublevels
Views of the end
Track Name: Ethereal Aspects
Comprised off all that is, we are but carbon
Our minds, our thoughts, our fates,
Is nothing but an illusion of the process
The bonds, control, all that, we have ever known of
Ethereal aspects

From start, expand, merge, and form into a whole
Pushed out, driven, from a force of mass control

Ethereal aspects, heavens beyond all that
Man can see, with our eyes, we are blind
To the scope, that is existence, perception, is nothing

From start, expand, merge and form a whole
Pushed out, driven, from a force of mass control

Transferred, through all, it shall, never be destroyed
Beliefs, need not, apply
In the end life cycles through the endless nonsense

All thoughts, have formed, from dust
Combined over time and space
The end is never

Take a step back and you shall see what matters
Worlds beyond, all that you cannot imagine

From start, expand, merge and form a whole
Pushed out, driven, from a force of mass control

So now, we know, just how, worthless we are all
Still think you heard these words
Consciousness is nothing to be taken lightly.

In the grand scheme of things
Absence conquers matter
Ethereal aspects
Track Name: Disregard All Claims of Sanity
I wander, this cursed maze, no end in sight, just twisted ways
In halls that lead astray
They say I’ve lost all sense, am lost in some damn trance
They’re wrong you see, they’ll pay for this deceit

Taken all I have, forced me to become someone,
Someone that they say is diseased, not me
You standing in my way, telling me my thoughts are wrong
Continue and you’ll meet your demise
By me, my hands, you die, in glory

Disregard all claims of sanity
Forget what, you’ve known or heard of me

Continue down this path, I'm going nowhere, nowhere is home, a place I call my own
If they could only, see what I see, I'm not insane, I am just diseased

Disregard all claims of sanity
Forget what you’ve known or heard of me

Forget what you know of me
I’m not insane, or so I say

Finally they understand, for they’re all dead
It was a task but I made them see, my way and nothing but
For I am right, and I am glad that it came to this

Taken all they have, forced them to become someone
Someone that no longer will see light of day
For they’re all dead, killed by my hands, or was it just a dream of mine please
Let this, be real, for me, I beg you
Track Name: Ghost
Apparition plaques my every dream
Waking from this nightmare

Why can’t this curse break free

Desperation overshadows me
Causing misanthropy

I just want this….. TO END!

Give up the ghost
Cast it aside
Relinquish now
Do not confide
Shun all they know
This fate is true
Memories gone
All is undone

Give up the ghost
`Heed my words
Relinquish now
This shall pass
All that was
Is no more

Life
moves on
Your
dreams, turned into
Nightmares…. You know… you fantasize….
Of every waking moment…

Give up the ghost
Cast it aside
Relinquish now
Do not confide
Shun all they know
This fate is true
Give up the Ghost
Inside of you
Forever more
