FIXATION ON INEVITABLE DEATH. UNRAVELLING IN FRAGMENTED PIECES. AGORAPHOBIC STATE OF DEMENTIA. DELUSION ONSET, TRIGGER EVASION. SPITEFUL. ALONE. IRRATIONAL FEAR. ODIOUS HALLUCINATION EMBODIED. MANIFESTING THE IRON SIGHT OF DEATH. IN CONSTANT FEAR OF ANNIHILATION. AGORAPHOBIC STATE OF DEMENTIA. DELUSION ONSET, TRIGGER EVASION. SPITEFUL. ALONE. CONSTANT STATE OF FEAR. FIXATION ON DEMISE LURKING OUT OF EVERY CORNER, PROTRUDING FROM ABSTRACT DIM SECTIONS OF THE PERIPHERAL. PERHAPS REAL, PERHAPS FICTIONAL, BUT ALL THE SAME. ALL THE SAME.

Sullen 01:27
ECHOES NOW FADE. AN ATTEMPT TO SCRAPE AWAY THE LAYERS, BUT INSTEAD IT’S NOW A NEVER ENDING WOUND. ENDLESS. BLEEDING. OOZING WOUND. DRAINING ME OF ALL DESIRE. I STILL HOLD ON. GRASPING TIGHTLY WITH ALL MY STRENGTH AND MIGHT. I DO THIS FOR YOU. FOR THOSE WHO HAVE FALLEN. REFUSAL TO SUBMERGE INTO THE CALM ABYSS. CLINGING ON WITH ALL MY STRENGTH. IT STARTS TO SLIP, YET I REMAIN RELUCTANT TO SUBMERGE INTO THE DARKNESS. AS TEMPTING AND LIBERATING AS IT SOUNDS… …AT LEAST FOR NOW.
3.
Autonomian 01:30
THE PATH CHOSEN TO BE LOST IN SOLACE AS OPPOSED TO ADRIFT AMONGST AN ILL FLOCK. VEHEMENT MASS OF DEPRAVED FLESH, SLABS OF CONCRETE. OVERT HYPOCRISY INGRAINED IN THE HIVEMIND. DESOLATE STEPS TOWARDS UNCERTAINTY. SLOW INHALATION OF THE SALT OF THIS CRUEL EARTH. ADVANCING FORWARD AS THE MEMORY PERMEATES WITHIN. THIS IS THE DOMAIN WHERE WE FORGET WHERE WE CAME FROM. WHERE WE PRETEND TO BE AS THOSE WHO WALK WITH LAVISH IDOLS. DESOLATE STEPS TOWARDS UNCERTAINTY. ELUDING THIS WRETCHED DOMINION. DEBASEMENT DISGUISED AS PROGRESS. ANOTHER GRANITE TOWER ERECTED THAT WILL SOON DECAY. RUST OBSCURING ALL. THE CHOICE TO BE LOST AND ALONE, ONE WILLINGLY MADE. DESOLATE STEPS TOWARDS UNCERTAINTY.
4.
MALFORMED CREATION ON A PATH TO MISERY. GIFTED WITH THE BURDEN OF CONSCIOUSNESS. MALFORMED CREATION ON A PATH TO MISERY. BORN BACKWARDS INTO THIS BLACK EARTH. UNHINGED HUMAN ANIMAL. STRIDE THIS EARTH ALONE. ENDURE. MALFORMED CREATION ON A PATH TO MISERY. GIFTED WITH THE BURDEN OF CONSCIOUSNESS. MALFORMED CREATION ON A PATH TO MISERY. BORN BACKWARDS INTO THIS BLACK EARTH. TO WALK TO STRIDE THIS EARTH AND SUFFER, FOR IT IS THE ONLY WAY TO GIVE PURPOSE TO THOSE WHO BROUGHT YOU INTO THIS WORLD. UNRELENTING SPITE. SET FORTH A PATHWAY TOWARDS ANGUISH. CONDEMNED TO DESOLATION. TO STRIDE THIS EARTH ALONE, FOR ONE SHOULD BE GRATEFUL. SNAKE EYES DICE ROLL AT GENETIC LOTTERY. TO ROAM THE STREETS IN SOLITUDE, CONFINEMENT. SNAKE EYES DICE ROLL AT GENERIC LOTTERY. TRAPPED IN FLESH PRISON. GIFTED WITH THE BURDEN OF CONSCIOUSNESS, FOR ONE SHOULD BE GRATEFUL.
5.
LAPSE IN SYNESTHESIA. VIBRANT SHADES NOW MONOCHROME, ROTTING AWAY UNDER FLUORESCENT LIGHTS. EVERY STEP FILLED WITH ABSOLUTE DREAD. ONWARDS TO THE DISMAL ADVANCE I HATE THIS PLACE. I HATE THAT I AM FUCKING HERE. FOR THIS SHALL BE THE LAST TIME THAT WE EVER MEET. FOR THIS SHALL BE THE DAY THAT I WATCHED YOU RELINQUISH THE LIGHT INSIDE YOUR EYES. HOLDING ON. FRAGMENTS OF RUINED HOPE. LETTING GO. MEMORIES FADE AWAY. WATCHING YOU HELPLESSLY WITHERING. EVERY STEP, SOMBER AND GRUELING, YET I STILL MARCH FORWARD, SUPPRESSING TEARS AND REMORSE. FOR THIS SHALL BE THE LAST TIME THAT WE EVER MEET. ONWARDS, THE DISMAL ADVANCE. THE DISMAL ADVANCE.
6.
MENACING GLARE. REVEL IN EXCESS. CHASING SOMETHING DOWN A DARK PASSAGE. TRAUMA FEEDBACK LOOP. IN RUMINATION. INSATIABLE. INFINITE BLEAKNESS. MENACING GLARE. RAVENOUS EXCESS. SEEKING COMFORT DOWN A DARK PATHWAY. TRAUMA FEEDBACK LOOP. ASPHYXIATION. A DISTRACTION FROM THE PAIN BENEATH THE SURFACE. SEEKING COMFORT FURTHER DOWN AN ABYSMAL CHASM FORLORN, UNENDING. INSATIABLE THIRST. SELF-OBLITERATION. SEEKING COMFORT FURTHER DOWN AN ABYSMAL CHASM FORLORN, UNENDING. ONE MORE TASTE TO BRING ME CLOSER TO DEATH. ONE MORE STEP TOWARDS OBLIVION.
7.
IT’S ALL THE DEEP END. DWELL IN WHAT FEELS LIKE THE BOTTOM. CAUSTIC DESIRE DISTORTED WITHIN VERMINATING PULSE. FLOURISHING BLOOM OF ANXIETY. DYSPHORIC BIT-CRUSH. SO HARD TO PROCESS WHAT’S OUTSIDE WHEN THE INSIDE MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL. ALL CAUSTIC THOUGHTS IN THE GRAY MATTER. DWELL IN WHAT FEELS LIKE THE BOTTOM. IT’S ALL THE DEEP END.
8.
Resentment 01:20
SUFFER IN ISOLATION. FAITH IN NOTHING AND IN NO ONE. WITHER IN ISOLATION. INFINITE RESENTMENT. SUFFER IN ISOLATION. FAITH IN NOTHING AND NO ONE IN THIS WORLD. WITHER IN ISOLATION. INFINITE RESENTMENT FERAL MAN IN CAGE. CONFINED, LOATHSOME. FERAL MAN IN CAGE. CONFINED, DISAVOWED. SUFFER IN ISOLATION. FAITH IN NOTHING AND IN NO ONE. WITHER IN ISOLATION. INFINITE RESENTMENT. FERAL MAN IN CAGE. CONFINED, LOATHSOME. PRESERVATION OF YOUR WORST MOMENT, ENCASED IN AMBER, AND TO BE REMEMBERED FOREVER.
9.
DOWNWARD SPIRAL INTO FERAL LUNACY. GRUELING DREAM LIKE STATE. MANGLED SYNAPSE DEFECT. BEING STRANGLED BY MY OWN APPARITION AS I STARE INTO ITS COLD DEAD EYES REFLECTION OF A VOID WITHIN A VOID WITHIN A VOID. FLASHES OF CHAOS. ERASE ME. LIVING, BREATHING, NIGHTMARE CONDUIT NO HOPE, NO JOY, HOLLOW AND BARREN. BEING STRANGLED BY MY OWN APPARITION AS I STARE INTO ITS COLD DEAD EYES FLASHES OF VIOLENCE. SPECTRAL CHAOS ENCASED IN FLESH.
10.
FAILURE EQUALS DEATH. LUXURY DIVINE, THE PROSPECT OF A SECOND CHANCE. FAILURE EQUALS DEATH. A MONUMENT BUILT ON DEFEAT. TEAR THROUGH THE LAYERS OF SINEW AND BONE. SCRAPING AT THE BOTTOM, INHALING DIRT. GAZE AT THE APEX, TRAVERSE THROUGH SQUALOR, OR EMBRACE CESSATION. EMBRACE THE END. THE END. FAILURE EQUALS DEATH
11.
AS LONG AS YOU WALK THIS EARTH AMONGST ME AND CONTINUE TO BREATHE, EVERY LASTING HARROWING SECOND IS A BURNING INFINITY. BITING DOWN, ABSORBING METALLIC SHARDS AS OPPOSED TO PULLING THEM OUT. APEX OF PAIN AMPLITUDE THRESHOLD. WAITING FOR A LOGICAL CONCLUSION, EXCEPT IT’S CHAOS. WAITING FOR THE END. EVERY HARROWING SECOND THAT I ENDURE. EVERY TORTUROUS MOMENT YOU LIVE AND BREATHE. I WAIT FOR THE END PRAYING FOR THE END. I WAIT FOR THE END. BEGGING FOR THE END.
12.
NO SOLACE. WHEN WAKING UP FEELS LIKE THE STING OF WRITHING HORNETS DESCENDING FROM BURNING HEAVENS, I’D MUCH RATHER LAY COMATOSE IN SWEAT AND VENOM. FORSAKE MY THOUGHTS, AN EPIGRAM LAYERED IN SELF-DEPRECATION. ALL IS ALRIGHT, FOR I AM JUST A COLD WALKING EMPTY HUSK HEAVING MYSELF DOWN THE ROAD. I GREET YOU WITH A HANDSHAKE AND A CALM WARM SMILE, BUT ON THE INSIDE MY WORLD IS ON FIRE. BUT PLEASE DO NOT LAMENT, TEARS WILL NOT HELP PUT OUT THE FLAMES.
13.
No Closure 01:52
UNFULFILLED DREAMS AND EMPTINESS. ZEALOUS THOUGHTS THAT LEAD NOWHERE. UNFULFILLED DREAMS, EMBRACE REGRET. WONDERING HOW IT COULD HAVE BEEN. NO CLOSURE.

about

Death Metal trio, SHOCK WITHDRAWAL, unleash their debut full length The Dismal Advance. Mixed/mastered by Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Cavalera Conspiracy, Tomb Mold), The Dismal Advance is a 21 minute high-BPM trauma feedback loop of non-stop shredding, blastbeat precision, and feral sonic volatility that sharply executes a superb balance of riffs, groove and masterful instrumentation. Replete with nihilistic lyrics and post-apocalyptic imagery, The Dismal Advance is a stark reminder that hell can be a place on earth... and some of us live in it.
