about

A brand new demo that signifies the triumphant re-emergence of Bay Area death/thrash metal horde Laceration. Established in 2006, 2008-2013 saw the band release 2 demos, an EP, and a split with Tinnitus, before embarking on a five year hiatus. Refusing to die among a myriad of member changes, Laceration returns stronger and more merciless than ever before, delivering 3 tracks that are anatomically aligned with late ‘80s, early 90’s death metal, yet located at the intersection of thrash metal occupied by the likes of Demolition Hammer, Solstice, Skeletal Remains, and Pestilence, with spotless production values and highly skilled song writing and musicianship.


“Perpetual Sickness” is fast and furious, striking with electrifying force right out of the gate thanks to a clobbering drum assault and pulsations of vicious, boiling riffs. It becomes a thundering tank attack, a scampering rampage, and a murderous, machine-gunning blast. Bestial howls accompany the titanic grooves and flesh-cutting chords, and there’s a heavyweight yet nimble bass in the mix, along with a freakish, fret-melting solo that drives the music even further into the red zone" No Clean Singing

Track Name: Imitation
Undisturbed frigid and buried,
unforeseen trepidation awaits,
exhumed by mistake, crystalized predator
now awake...
inquiry revealing validation,
anomaly discerning reaction
terminal process takes hold,
carnage unfolds…
permeated human host,
no change from the outside, but within
imitation complete, instincts to survive.
Paranoid conditions, origin unknown,
bursting wide open, hollow cadaver sheds,
leech on the victim, creature grotesque, grotesque!
SOLO: Cazares
Bursting wide open hollowed cadaver sheds
leech on the victim, imitation complete!
Track Name: Perpetual Sickness
Sickness tearing apart the immune system,
wreaking havoc on human flesh,
suffer the new way of life, pandemic
contagion spiral of blackened skies
vermin transmit bacteria,
Flowers for the dead,
flowers for the living, dead!
population split in half…
rapid onset of expiration
knowledge of disease unknown.
knowledge of disease unknown
cemeteries overflow!
SOLO: Small
squalor dwellings, earth drenched in
putrid hope, certainty is haunting
soon black death envelopes.
Fetid release of mortality, burial denied
denied!
Track Name: Weaponized Dominion
Imperial vices crush a mortal world,
the expense falls harsh on all who
oppose, structured to mask the agenda,
manipulate with prejudice propaganda.
golden waves of napalm released
innocents laid waste for inhuman beliefs,
cold hands grasped, souls drift past,
intelligent species so flawed, profit allegiance
over all!
weaponized dominion
weaponized dominion
weaponized for our protection,
globalized for your oppression,
terrorize to build separation,
teaching hatred, indoctrination.
cremation awaits the demised
strategic leverage compromised retribution
is on the mind, fall in my trap!
slaughter to gain control, deceive and overthrow,
mercy not to be shown, dominion grows!
SOLO: Small
slaughter to gain control, deceive and overthrow,
mercy not to be shown, dominion grows!
