Matthew Rukgaber I love Warning Sign's new album "Left to the Sharks" so much I want to take it behind the middle school and get it pregnant. The riffs and solos on this long E.P. are far more Slayer-tastic. Top-notch thrash. Favorite track: The Perfect Soldier.

Scumbag Here we have a Canadian band embracing their influences with gusto and energy. Clearly these guys have an affection for the original thrash masters (Megadeth and Annihilator are the most obvious ones to my ears!) and they are bringing new blood to the tried and true style that we all still love so much! Definitely worth a listen! Favorite track: Black Magic... The Curse.

Track Name: Black Magic... The Curse
Vengeance is Mine and as moon turns to sun
You will pay for the things you have done
Sharp as a knife, hard as a hammer
This curse will hit you with all its power
There’s no escape from the old incantation
The only way justice can be done

Your body is aching, you’re screaming
Your soul is mine for the taking
Your body is aching you’re screaming
Your soul is mine for the taking

Upon the altar and old book of spells
Ancien words calling demons from hell
Pagan symbols drawn up on the wall
Open gates to dimensions beyond
Throwing a picture of you in the fire
To feed the flames and fullfil my desires
The fire is rising, the ritual begins
Setting the stage : a ceremony of sin

Your body is aching, you’re screaming
Your soul is mine for the taking
Your body is aching, you’re screaming
Your soul is mine for the taking
“On this night of full moon
I hex thee from this day forth
I hex thee with pain, anguish, suffering and woe
On this night this new moon
I invoke thine will to be done
To only be undone of my own desire and will”

So your torment shall commence
Leaving you to cry in despair
I’ll be waiting in the wings
Watching you becoming insane
“On this night, this new moon
I invoke thine will to be done
To only be undone of my own desire and will”

The cursed : What’s coming over me?
What evil has taken over?
Anguish and agony
So strong, it can’t be stopped

I feel I'm going crazy
Seeing things in the dark
A black figure before me
Drawnig near, opening its arms....

Solo : Max/Oli/Max/Oli
Track Name: Wake The Dead
Searching for the answers
Searching for the truth
Trying to understand
Find a sense of purpose
It’s all over the history books
It’s all over your eyes
Repeating the same mistakes
While countless people die

Somewhere we must have lost our way
Or was it meant to be this way?
We haven’t found our answers in the stars or on the cross
We’ve gambled and we’ve lost

Clinging to our old books for philosophy
Phrases from a time that never used to be
A way of feeling holy and good forevermore
But in the end it only gives us reasons to wage wars

Somewhere we must have lost our way
Or was it meant to be this way?
We haven’t found our answers in the stars or on the cross
We’ve gambled and we’ve lost

One more step towards the end
Wake the dead
History repeats itself again

One more step towards the end
Wake the dead
History repeats itself again

Solo : Max/Oli/Max

Maybe we can find a way back to sanity
Break away from the chains that bind us to our knees
Become one with the world, tear up the veil so we can see
The chaos that’s left in our wake is our true reality

Somewhere we must have lost our way
Or was it meant to be this way?
We haven’t found our answers in the stars or on the cross
We’ve gambled and we’ve lost

One more step towards the end
Wake the dead
History repeats itself again

One more step towards the end
Wake the dead
History repeats itself again
Track Name: NWO
For centuries now they’ve been pulling the strings
Setting up their plan for the world
A corrupted elite fueled by power and greed
Pretending it’s for our own good

Born into bondage to banks and corporations
Debt is the new slavery
For they are our masters one way or the other
There’s no way for us to be free

Illusion of choice through election systems put in place
To replace their puppets
Fulfilling their agenda sending our youths out to war
To increase their profits
They control information making sure what you see
Is not what you get
A masquerade of lies, a charade they deny
While they slowly take freedoms away
Repressing protests with force claiming it’s for our security
In reality the only ones they try to protect are not you and me
Voting bills into law to tighten their grip on society
Counting on you not opposing a thing while you’re too busy watching TV
Solo : Max

For centuries now they’ve been pulling the strings
Setting up their plan for the world
A corrupted elite fueled by power and greed
Pretending it’s for our own good

Born into bondage to banks and corporations
Debt is the new slavery
For they are our masters one way or the other
There’s no way for us to be free
Track Name: The Perfect Soldier
Dehumanization – A complex blend of flesh and circuits
Neural implantation – Electric signals enhance and upgrade
Desensitization – Robotic parts impervious to punishment
Scientific creation – blurring the line between machine and man

Strategic perfection – Software analysis of the battlefield
Climate adaptation – Made to survive the harshest weather
Surgical precision – Shooting to kill with each pull of the trigger
Absence of compassion – Without regard for the human condition

When they're performing the art of war
They paint their canvas with blood
To execute their masterplan
They need the perfect soldier

Solo : Oli/Max

Technology to kill – instrument of imperial ambition
Nothing else in mind – getting ready for your next mission
No more a man – stripped away of all human sensation
You’re part of the plan – you’re nothing when the war is done

When they're performing the art of war
They paint their canvas with blood
To execute their masterplan
They need the perfect soldier
Track Name: Twisted
Deceitful suggestion
Crooked train of thought
From desperation, unspeakable evil is brought
Instrument of vengeance
Madness drawing near
Using whatever is found to spread hatred and fear

Abuse has taken its toll - There's a price to pay
At the bottom of the barrell - Nothing more to say

Twisted is your mind
Twisted is your soul
In the mouth of madness
Beginning of the end
Twisted is your mind
Twisted is your soul
In the mouth of madness
Beginning of the end
Solo : Max

No shortage of conviction
Certitudes unphazed
Your vision of reality you'll bring to your grave
Destroy the opposition
Get rid of what impairs
Send a message to the masses that you do not care

Twisted is your mind
Twisted is your soul
In the mouth of madness
Beginning of the end

Twisted is your mind
Twisted is your soul
In the mouth of madness
Beginning of the end

Solo : Max/Oli/Oli/Max

Crumbling of conscience
Black is all you see
The voices in your head make you lose reality
Irreparrable damage
Never to be undone
You'll never be forgiven you're the twisted one
Track Name: Mark Of The Beast
Humanity stands on the brink
The faithfuls looking to repent
A beacon of hope, a light in the dark
The angels on earth will descend
Fire from the heavens in the sight of men
Works of a great deception
The serpent convincing the world to believe
He his the god of judgement

And he will cause them all
So they may buy or sell
To be the bearers of the mark
The mark that came from hell

Mark - Mark of the beast
Mark - Mark of the beast

Enforcing the law by way of the seal
Forcing it on everyone
Believers are mesmerized by its appeal
Thinking god's will to be done

Promise of glory and peace to all men
To damnation they will be lead
Down on their knees to receive the sign
Engraved on their hand or their head
And he will cause them all
So they may buy or sell
To be the bearers of the mark
The mark that came from hell

Mark - Mark of the beast
Mark - Mark of the beast

End of days
Seven plagues
Befalling the earth, leaving dust in their wake
Revelations finally coming to pass

How could it be?
Is this for real?
Have we opened the seventh seal?
Following blindly - leaders marching to their deaths

Treachery : we were deceived
Instead of peace
We got war and disease
Revelations finally coming to pass

Small and great, rich and poor
Free and slave, we fell for it all
Can't you see, we're already marked?
Can't you see, we were doomed from the start?

Now it's to late to turn to your faith
You bought and you sold, you can never be saved
Your soul is damned, this is the end
Burn in a lake of fire
Solo : Max

Here are words of wisdom
For those who understand
Calculate the number
The number of a man

Mark - Mark of the beast
Mark - Mark of the beast
