PKMetal My immediate impression is something I don't say often: If you don't like this, I'm not convinced that you actually like metal.

It's got it all, dialed up to 10. Speed, check. Riffs, check. Hooks, check. Solos, check. Epicness, check. Fun, check. Top notch Dickinsonesque vocals, double check. And even a perfect, crisp production. Just wow.

Surrender 06:44
Scarlett blood lines the hallway Weaving through corpses and bones Massacred mortals in limbo We need to set them free Living in purgatory Fighting the lines on the sea Generations failed before us We will not lose control….no! Incantations of temptation Malevolence is her song Extermination’s her end game No chance of carrying on Indifferent to humanity Possesses no mortality We will not surrender We will not surrender We will not surrender We will not surrender (Melodic Vocals) We will not surrender We will not surrender We will not surrender We will not surrender Tortured strides moving forward Wasted and withered from fear Dreams turned into disaster Wishes ripped at the seams Mindless choices decided Life overrun by greed Wage war on the enemy We will see victory We will not surrender We will not surrender We will not surrender We will not surrender We will not surrender We will not surrender We will not surrender FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT Hold your head High HOLD YOUR HEAD HIGH!

Crews up at dawn, we’re departing Rise up the anchor and rig the line Loading the pistols and cannons With a speech from your Captain Ignited you set Sail... ...ing the seas that are seven Pillage and plundering is your game With the wave of a red flag in warning You threaten no quarter No mercy for the kill The battle is won In Poseidon’s kingdom Now time for fun Come have a drink with me where would you rather be We'll drink it down - 'til we drown - We'll drink it down We'll drink it down - 'til we drown - We'll drink it down DRINK FIGHT Traveling home from a journey With no drink in your hand, you know that's a sin Returning in all of your glory Raise a glass to your men and then celebrate your Win... ..ning is always encouraged When a battle befalls you, you stand your ground Now you sit sloshed dreaming of days Filled with waters of wine, seas of whiskey, gin and beer It’s time to go home With treasure in tow The battle is won Come have a drink with you rather be We'll drink it down - 'til we drown - We'll drink it down We'll drink it down - 'til we drown - We'll drink it down We'll drink it down - 'til we drown - We'll drink it down We'll drink it down - 'til we drown - We'll drink it down PIRATES, SCOUNDRELS, THIEVES UNITED WE SAIL ON THE SEAS PIRATES, SCOUNDRELS, THIEVES UNITED WE SAIL ON THE SEAS PIRATES, SCOUNDRELS, THIEVES UNITED WE SAIL ON THE SEAS PIRATES, SCOUNDRELS, THIEVES UNITED WE SAIL ON THE SEAS (Melodic Vocals) We'll drink it down - 'til we drown We'll drink it down - 'til we drown We'll drink it down - 'til we drown We'll drink it down - 'til we drown We'll drink it down - 'til we drown We'll drink it down - 'til we drown We'll drink it down - 'til we drown We'll drink it down - 'til we drown

Sink or Swim 03:28
Lingering sadness And debauchery Sitting Succumbing to reality Endlessly analyzing What’s to come Uncertainty growing Unknowing beyond Emotion is painted On all of our faces We are within Hysterical stages The light at The end of the tunnel is gone Wondering how we will carry on Oooohhh…. Sink or swim will you sink or swim Sink or swim will you sink or swim Sink or swim will you sink or swim Sink or swim will you sink or swim Questions unanswered We’re going in blind Anxiety building No chance to unwind Internally rifle For humanity Refusing to let Panic take over me A notion has tainted All familiar places Madness ensues On a daily basis Tireless Wondering is taking its toll No end in sight No achievable goal Ohhhhh…... There is no backtrack And no fast forward When terror meets reality Fact against fiction Drowned in trepidation We are our own worst enemy Oooohhh…. Sink or swim will you sink or swim Sink or swim will you sink or swim Sink or swim will you sink or swim Sink or swim will you sink or swim Trust in the power That you have within Don’t ever cower We’re all bound by sin And while we by no means Admit to defeat This isn’t the last Of the battles we’ll meet

Faint sound off in the distance Cantillation through the breeze Calling with exquisite melody Enthralling me Sanity in question Is it fact or just perceived Reality's a distant memory A memory And it twists and it turns and it burns Inside my mind… I'll survive I don't care if I'm blind Mark my words I'll see through your disguise Slowly Uncontrollably The madness becomes me Leading me into darkness Destination unforeseen I'll follow you into a reverie Aimlessly Hunting for explanation The moonlight she will lead A journey to evade insanity Insanity And it twists and it turns and it burns Inside my mind... I'll survive I don't care if I'm blind Mark my words I'll see through your disguise Slowly Uncontrollably The madness becomes me Falling into darkness Unsure where it leads Uttering a tortured Plea Terrified disorder Emotional deceit Fighting but am paralyzed and weak Please Let go of me… Let go of me… Let go of me… Ohhhhhh ohhhhh ohhhhh ohhhhh

Hatred grows stronger The longer you’re down on your knees Get kicked when you’re done No matter how you try to appease Tactical triggers enable The darkness to breed With blood on your face Will you claw your way out of the weeds Disguised in your human skin Dropping fires everywhere that you go Cryptic critics… All these snakes disguised as friends Makes it hard to see what’s real underneath When all you thought that mattered Was a fist full of daggers Forced into submission Provoked by a collective greed Paralytical thoughts in your head Make it harder to breathe Tipping the scales Doesn’t always mean that you’ll succeed Inflict and depict Deviate from your normality Well you can try to drag me under But you will not drag is down Cryptic critics… All these snakes disguised as friends Makes it hard to see what’s real underneath When all you thought that mattered Was a fist full of daggers Fist full of daggers Fist full of daggers Fist full of daggers Put your blade in and twist I can handle it It’s been there all along You can stop with the victim games Stop with the sob stories Everyone knows that you’re wrong Blades always vicious Ambitious toward Their own need Adorned in their blood-spattered triumph to mortality Disguised in your human skin Dropping fires everywhere that you go Cryptic critics… All these snakes disguised as friends Makes it hard to see what’s real underneath you When all you thought that mattered Was a fist full of daggers Fist full of daggers / Cryptic Critics all there Fist full of daggers / Snakes disguised as friends Fist full of daggers / Makes it hard to see what’s real underneath Fist full of Daggers / When all you thought that mattered First full of daggers/ Was a fist full of daggers

Heads you go forward Tails you go back Chance is upon you Flip a coin to lead you on your path Heads you go forward Tails you go back Chance is upon you Flip a coin to lead you on your path Oh the hands of time How they intertwine Each day as confusing as the next Haunting memories Bring you back to life Reminding you of all that you have seen How can I see where the light is Which way must I go Each direction tells a different story Feelings of truth live inside me Intuition calls But fear reveals a cruel reality Ooooohhh Which way do I go Ooooohhh Which way do I go The beautiful unknown Reveal yourself to me I can feel you pounding in my chest Stumble I might fall Trying to do it all But I must rise up and begin again Pleading and asking for answers Just give me a sign Which one is the path that serves my purpose I stand on the line undecided Apprehensively Cause things aren't quite always as they may seem Heads you go forward Tails you go back Chance is upon you Flip a coin to lead you on your path Ooooohhh Which way do I go Ooooohhh Which way do I go Ooooohhh Which way do I go Ooooohhh Which way do I go Heads you go forward Tails you go back Chance is upon you Flip a coin to lead you on your path Heads you go forward Tails you go back Chance is upon you Flip a coin to lead you on your path (melodic vocals) Heads you go forward Flip a coin to lead you on your path…

HA HA HA HA… You’re going to hell And I’m going to take you there Mystified Encapsulated Locked and trapped Abominated Petrified Incarcerated It’s for death That you are slated Your time on earth has ended Not a human soul in sight Down a perished highway Until you’re out of light Through an upright tunnel Pitch darkness and abyss Unknowingly going To a place you don’t exist Drain your soul In the depths of infatuation No control You must face it now For you’re hell ridden Holder of the razor throne Wings constructed of horns Irrefutable beauty Entwined in a perfect storm Ruler of the Raven Stone Sleeps on a bed of bones Undeniable cruelty Shown to every soul that’s born You watch me in fear Paralyzed and empty Falling further down This never ending hole Now you worship thee Cower in my beauty This is where you dwell Forever… CHORUS: Holder of the razor throne Wings constructed of horns Irrefutable beauty Entwined in a perfect storm Ruler of the Raven Stone Sleeps on a bed of bones Undeniable cruelty Shown to every soul that’s born Temptress of the night Your will begins to turn inside Give into me now because there’s Nowhere you can hide Her sharp serpentine tail Will get you with its poisoned tip Excruciating pain awaits For which you’re not equipped Hollow souls come out As your blood fills up my veins I can feel the energy It’s filling me with hate Hell awaits within you There will be no end in sight A thirst that never satisfies Eating you alive Come in vain Please accept our invitation Under reign It’s a celebration You’re our sacrifice Mystified Encapsulated Locked and trapped Abominated Petrified Encapsulated It’s for death That you are slated

about

This album was a blast to write! We’ve been holding on to these riffs for a long while, and hopefully, the anticipation is exactly what our fans were waiting for. We’ve got a mix of thrash, rock, metal, and ballads on this one. We are extremely proud of this album from all angles. The songwriting, lyrics, art, and production quality show the effort we put in. It’s something we know we’ll be proud of in the years to come.
