about

Anomaly in Effigy Queenstown, Maryland

This is metal influenced by 90s Norwegian black metal and USBM, classic heavy metal bands, a little Swedish death metal, my own fucked up mental states, and occultism, particularly Hermeticism and Thelema.

Started writing around 2004, and released home-recorded demos on small underground metal labels beginning in 2006. Have been releasing records on small labels or independently since then.

Track Name: The Door of Evermore
I change my face
I change my name
With raging heart
All around me sword and flame
Beyond the tomb
Behind the veil
Upon the earth
Seeking what can never fail
From the stars
To inner planes
3rd of eyes
Walls dissolve yet I remain

Climbing up the tree of life
Gazing at the heavens
Through the door of evermore
From the reach of death

Now I come
And now I go
And now I'm gone
Swallowed in the undertow
Only here
Only now
Within the storm
Never why but only how
Through years of pain
It comes to this
Torn apart
Reborn in the silent bliss

Climbing up the tree of life
Gazing at the heavens
Through the door of evermore
From the reach of death

To have a face
To have a name
Frozen life
Stagnant seeking more the same
With the wind
Upon the sea
Moving on
Seeking only to be free
Defy the Fates
Defy the grave
Know thyself
The only one that you can save

Climbing up the tree of life
Gazing at the heavens
Through the door of evermore
From the reach of death
Track Name: Gone
All who were burned in the name of the "Lord"
Life made ashes and bone
All who were crushed in the name of "freedom"
For the sake of the bastard elite
Nothing's changed below the skin
Different day, same old shit
Nothing to save us from ourselves
Convenient, complacent, invisible hell

Where are the proud?
Where are the free?
Not to be found
Not to be seen
Ransomed in bondage
'Til their last breath
Breathing chains
Living death

Forever fighting the holy war
Smokescreen leeches and scum
Zealots marching slaves to their end
Disciples sleep safe and secure
Dividing the sum into all of its parts
Partition for profit, tighten the leash
Fattened and laughing, throats in their grip
Drowning the rats in their sinking ship


Where are the proud?
Where are the free?
Not to be found
Not to be seen
Ransomed in bondage
'Til their last breath
Breathing chains
Living death
Track Name: Feral
Shallow hollow meaninglessness
Get out of my face
With your tired shit
Immersed in a pool
of buzz-word cliche
Monotonous games
That you constantly fucking play

Assholes to my left
Shitheads to my right
World full of douchebags
who can't see the light
Mundane trivial useless words
Mindless voices fighting to be heard

I don't give a fuck about your morals
I don't give a fuck about your politics
I don't give a fuck about your status
Suck my fucking ass and eat my dick

Hearts full of glass
Crushed to shards
It's all coming down
Like a house of cards
Sold your soul
for a couple of toys
Got your head in your ass
to drown out the noise

You made it clear
Just what you serve
I hope you're getting everything you deserve
I hope you're getting everything you deserve

I don't give a fuck about your morals
I don't give a fuck about your politics
I don't give a fuck about your status
Suck my fucking ass and eat my dick
Track Name: Novus Ordo Seclorum
Here comes the stranglehold
Talons tighten on prey
We are bastard children
Whipped into submission

Eagles
Crosses
Stars and stripes
Dollar signs and sigils
Wave your flag
Shoot your gun
For Jesus Christ and Uncle Sam

Tongues torn from roots
Minds overwritten
Toil, suffer
For your overlords

Eagles
Crosses
Stars and stripes
Dollar signs and sigils
Wave your flag
Shoot your gun
For Jesus Christ and Uncle Sam

Loyal slaves
Bonds unseen
Subjugation equals freedom

Eagles
Crosses
Stars and stripes
Dollar signs and sigils
Wave your flag
Shoot your gun
For Jesus Christ and Uncle Sam
Track Name: Black Pilgrimage
Burning in my chest
So familiar
Going under
Onyx clouds
Striving for
Metamorphosis
Or ceaseless sleep

Waxing
Waning
Longing
Striving
Pushing
Yearning
Purging
Burning
Changing
Pure Fucking Desire

Drifting in another world
Whoring my being to all-comers
Taking my fill of the abyss
The abyss takes its fill of me


Waxing
Waning
Longing
Striving
Pushing
Yearning
Purging
Burning
Changing
Pure Fucking Desire

Killing the mundane
Will set me free
The eye of the mind
Give unto me

Waxing
Waning
Longing
Striving
Pushing
Yearning
Purging
Burning
Changing
Pure Fucking Desire
