about

A new single from our upcoming record "Landmine"

"Blood Bath" seeks to connect to the powerless emotion in all of us, waking up, wondering how to protect ourselves and our families from the downtrodden world around us. Whether republican or democratic, conservative or liberal, passive or aggressive, we all know what it feels like to be lost in a war, so much so, that we cannot remember why we started fighting. If we couple this fear with the fear that if we don't fight, someone might get hurt, we start to understand what it's like to be an innocent civilian unable to escape certain detriment. So let us shout together at the unfair battles we did not start, and may we mourn the loss of our brothers and sisters, hoping to grieve loss across the nations rather than boast in selfish victories.

Live tracks recorded in a Slaughter House in St. Matthews, S.C. owned by the Millender family (of the Millender's Bar-B-Que Place of West Columbia). Overdubs recorded in an assortment of places around Columbia, S.C.

Track Name: Blood Bath
I was born into a blood bath
To inherit father pain
All the people marching here and back
Across their brother's graves

How the call of the drum grows louder
As if pounding through my heart
All our footsteps are united
As we tear other souls apart

Now the call to take up armor
And to fight other souls to death
So that I might find my freedom
Steels our souls from rest

How I have followed and lost my own will
I'd like to run home and fight to be still
Coward or not, it seems wrong to obey
And fight in a war that another man made

I was born into a blood bath
Track Name: Blood Bath (Live Slaughter House Take)
I was born into a blood bath
To inherit father pain
All the people marching here and back
Across their brother's graves

How the call of the drum grows louder
As if pounding through my heart
All our footsteps are united
As we tear other souls apart

Now the call to take up armor
And to fight other souls to death
So that I might find my freedom
Steels our souls from rest

How I have followed and lost my own will
I'd like to run home and fight to be still
Coward or not, it seems wrong to obey
And fight in a war that another man made

I was born into a blood bath
