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 Citadel
Effluvial stench wafting from the rift
Compulsive taxonomy of stone
Pressure has yielded density
Beyond the reach of quantity

Smugly snicker from your trenches
And the comfort of your privilege
Plastering the universe with the fleeting labels of ego

Arrogance swift upon the heels of ignorance
Counting the atoms within the machine

Paragons shining with flawless perception
Gripping the brand of a new inquisition
Track Name: Oxytocin is the Law
Reassuring smile
Subtly gloat
As you turn away
You draw your thumb
Across your throat

No depth
Inexhaustible breadth
The oppressed becomes the oppressor
The depressed becomes the stressor
Track Name: Delirium of Negation
Another night to wander
These wastes of ceaseless doubt
Another night of cold sweat
On the outskirts of the abyss

Voices underground
Straining for the words
On the verge of speech
Forgotten what to say

Flesh
Bone
Blood
Stone
You're nothing
You're nothing
You're nothing
Fuck
Eat
Hollow
Meat
You're nothing
You're nothing
You're nothing
Nothing

I woke up on a roadside
Face streaked with mud and filth
They found me catatonic
Disciple of the earth

Voices underground
Straining for the words
Figures in the dusk
Moving out of sight

Flesh
Bone
Blood
Stone
You're nothing
You're nothing
You're nothing
Fuck
Eat
Hollow
Meat
You're nothing
You're nothing
You're nothing
Track Name: Exhibit
Hands and knees
Groping for the light
Filters through the dust
Thick as years

Naked and raw
On display
For all
Corroded and gnawed
Distortion
Let fall

In the dusky haze
I can make out shapes
Remembering the ghosts
That refuse to die

Naked and raw
On display
For all
Corroded and gnawed
Distortion
Let fall
