about

“DarkMetal” is a good, albeit simplified way to summarize the signature sound of this one-man band. From the first instant there is a dark gloomy mixture with growling almost demonic vocals and dirty fat riffs - a clash of raspy black metal vocals with thrash metal arrangements.

Track Name: Riptide
set the sails
loose the anchor
the open seas
gloom - the silence before the storm
no-one at the helm
come to grief
walk the plank
doom - realize that we are betrayed

the rats are leaving the sinking ship
dejected, no one will follow you any more
you are going to sink without a trace
we strike the sails and your days are gone

scrub the deck
close-hauled
no land in sight
riot - a tempest in a teapot
deeply loaded
riptide
abandon the ship
quiet - realize that it is to late

the rats are leaving the sinking ship
dejected, no one will follow you any more
you are going to sink without a trace
we strike the sails and your days are gone

are we a battle cruiser?
or just a banana boat?
we save appearances
but don't think that we can not go down!
are you the skipper?
or just a cabin boy?
we have a heavy list
but you fire broadside - to save your hide!

the rats are leaving the sinking ship
dejected, no one will follow you any more
you are going to drown with all hands
we strike the sails and your days are gone

the rats have left the sunken ship
Track Name: Stab By Stab
her eyes
her hate
feels like
you are dazed

An eye for an eye
fire tortured
Splinters killed her child
so she seeks revenge
the savagest beast
chased him for three years
he can't cheat death
blazing in ...

her eyes
her hate
feels like
you are dazed

her eyes - like green fire
her hate - pounding for revenge
feels like - the kiss of the virgin
it goes stab by stab by stab!

A tooth for a tooth
shattered brain
she licks its wounds
and laments the loss

run up the wall
war paint in blood
no time for funeral
the demon is released

her eyes - like green fire
her hate - pounding for revenge
feels like - the kiss of the virgin
it goes stab by stab by stab!

The secret tribunal - finds you guilty!

darkness all around
a gruesome place
dusty wooden stairs
the chamber of horrors

racks, belts and boots
watchmen's hooks
and baskets of steel
to crush one's head

open the iron door
pull the rope
show her spikes
a cruel embrace

bind his arms and legs
out of nowhere
a hellish scream
now drop the rope

her eyes - like green fire
her hate - pounding for revenge
feels like - the kiss of the virgin
it goes stab by stab by stab!

like green fire
pounding for revenge
the kiss of the virgin
it goes stab by stab by stab!
Track Name: Six Sec Sex
Hitting on Misfortune
Better than masturbation
Kisses that taste so sour
E'nuff, now unfold your flower
State of ignored repulsion
Caused by a blind erection
Pretend it's a trumpet blow
It can only go too slow

Love me - oh sure I love U2
Love me - I can't unless you undress
Love me - ya bet I'm gonna do
Love me - ahh! Shut up and eat

Six second sex - and that's all you get
Six second sex - and not a second more
Six second sex - and what you'll ever get from me
Six second sex - you cheap perfume stinking poor man's whore

Didn't your mother tell you not to talk with your mouth full, so?

Shut up and eat the metal
What was your name?! Ethyl?
Choke her in the shower
In a room rented by the hour
Heard it has good nutrition
So swallow my ammunition
After I've cum - I'm gone
I am as cold as the cunt of a nun

Love me - what!? I just did you slut
Love me - I'm done - I'm gone
Love me - this ain't no charity fuck
Love me - let's hope you're into S&M then... bitch!

Six second sex - and that's all you get
Six second sex - and not a second more
Six second sex - and what you'll ever get from me...

Whore!!
Track Name: Bloodlust
I hear your pulse
the seductive beat
under your skin
I want to suck your ...

the hunt is on
nowhere to go
abandon hope
I want to suck your blood!

Now you are cursed
by the undead
your time has come
I want to drink your ...

you're not the first
and won't be the last
The circle of death
The strongest survives

it's not your fault
just release the pain
and close your eyes
it's all about your blood!

revitalized
I feel the new blood
in my old corpse
I want to taste your ...

at dusk it all starts again
I have to take a new life
to reach the infinity
I want to taste the essence of your blood!
Track Name: Loose Ends
I can hear it from the grave
craving for the resurrection
it cannot be forgotten
it will haunt me forever

every beginning is hard
but to finish so much more
always waiting for the right moment
Procrastination is the thief of time

Will - I - ever - finish what I started?
Will - I - ever - finish what I started?
... bring it to an end and let go?

Sometimes it all takes shape
but then back at the drawing-board
nothing makes sense

countless loose ends
half-baked and incomplete
gathering like a hoarder
and no end in sight

Will - I - ever - finish what I started?
Will - I - now - finish what I started?
... bring it to an end and let go?
Go!

Is it good enough to finish it now?
No!

Is it still fun or just annoying?
Recycle bin or start again?

the thirst for action is resurrecting
compile all blueprints to a perfect piece
A stitch in time saves nine
