about

Decimatus Melbourne, Australia

Evolving the groove sound from the blueprint left by Pantera, Decimatus have been able to combine it with the raw heaviness of Lamb of God. The band has been able to forge ahead with a sound that wears its influences on its sleeve but in a way that doesn't seem dated or rehashed. This album is a breath of fresh air. Their take on metal is great because it’s fun and familiar while still original. ... more

Track Name: Catalyst For Rage
So bite the bar or the bar bites you
They hide behind their badge
But will the justice pull through?
They masquerade on the ones with no face
But I'm next to feel disgraced

This rage that fuels within
Passed on by the world we live in
This rage will break my silence
Justice is blind
Ignorance is blindness

Just another day
Just set it down
When I get this straight I'll take that path no more
Just walk away
Just set it down
When rage takes control
I'll be that man no more

They point the finger in dismay
This broken clock is wrong twice a day
But they misinterpret what I've just said
Once again this bounty falls on my head

Every day I get up
I take a look in the mirror
I don't like what I see
This face staring back I don't recognise
But it won't go away
I see this same face every time
When I catch it's eyes it screams back at me

Got nothing to lose
But got everything to gain
Forced fed this shit from the ones who are to blame
When it rains it pours
Heed the warning you ignored
And I've been fist fucked by the long arm of the law
Track Name: One Foot in the Grave
The white horse leaves a stubborn stain
A wretched figure behind a mask of red
The fear endures without a soul
Among them walks a pestilence and death
Brig you to your knees
The untouchable is now diseased
The clock struck twelve and all is lost
Ignorance has paid the cost

Do as we say not as we do
Open the door, your funeral is awaiting you

Hourglass is filled with dirt and shame
Falling on your face, cannot be saved
Live your whole life just to be a slave
Devil dancing one foot in the grave

A chilling pair of colours mark the seventh room
We're all afraid of what we fear
Pointing fingers and pulling our triggers
Our death will come under a funeral shroud
Take your place as what you are

So bar your windows and lock your doors
We're all afraid of what we fear
Pointing fingers and pulling all triggers
Our death will come under a funeral shroud
So bar your windows and lock your doors
Taught to be afraid but don't know the cause
The time is coming
The plague is knocking

Bring you to your knees
The untouchable is now diseased
And ignorance has paid the cost
Track Name: Erosion
Fed the lies with the morning sky
Read the papers as another one dies
They say we need to be
Where we don't defy
Gone way off course
Can't admit when they're wrong
No ticker taper tape parade to save the day
You're on a one way ticket to murder

And the rockets light up the sky
Countdown to judgement day

Shards of metal rain down
No rainbow coming in this sun shower
Machines keep sending more lambs to the slaughter
The cogs grind as they turn
Feeding soul like gas to burn
The pigs sit behind their oakwood lies
As they wipe their mouths with franklins

And the rockets light up the sky
Countdown to judgement day

Time has shown
From a distance you will watch it all burn
Down to the ground
Just a kid in a mother fucking playground
They've got weapons for all occasions
To fuel their need
For god, for flag, for country, Erosion

I can't stand the blind hypocrisy
The sheep follow the Shepperd
Send them all to die for country
Send them all to die for nothing

Just collateral damage in this Erosion
Track Name: Burning Bridges
Here it comes crawling back again
Like a demon
Mother Mary crying out for more
A sweet sent from a dying whore
A need for this sacred ritual
Just want it all
Breath in the broken shattered glass
Do you even need to ask

Not gonna walk the line
Betting on black this time
Got more bridges to burn
We've got more medals to earn

Rack'em up and start the chopping block
Too late too stop
The time is coming the eyes are turning
Black at the bottom so keep on burning
Pin prick eyes to guard the light
From my ice blackened night
Breath out and slay the rest the away
The devil's coming and it's time to pay

I've got no bridges to burn
I've got no medals earn
Track Name: Ill Fated
Just keep on listening
You'll see what you've become
Your eyes they're sickening
Beauty you do not behold
I walked past your broken mirror
Escaped seven years of hell

Just pray my luck won't run out

Living like a rat hasn't changed your technique
Still can't crawl out of your hole
So sick and tired of being so weak
Next time I'm going to have control

Just pray my luck won't run out

Could not stand the pain
Everyday was always the same
And then it hits
Taking my soul for one more day
Could not get away
Never found the right words to say
Then it slipped
Took one last look then got away

Confined to the depths of chaos
you stole he witches crown
Tearing leaves from a clover
Sinking on this stone down

Behind the eight ball no chance of escape
Ill fated left for dead on the shit heap
Cheated 5 times before the eyes saw
Crocodile tears on the face of a whore
I've become Ill fated
Track Name: Ashes to the Urn
It's hard to speak your peace without your teeth
Rhetoric will seal your doom
You'll burn, you'll fry, you'll die
Don't dare to tell me more lies
Few and far between break through the seams
Loyalty has slipped through the cracks
You dropped the pace the watch set too late
Runs on the pulse that beats with hate

I place this hex on your fucking necks
Throw down my voodoo tricks
You've made your bed so sleep in it
Comatose till your hollow death
Fuel these words with wisdom
Bound to ignorance Falsify innocence
What the fuck is coming next?

The pulse beats with rage
Can't shake this cage
Ain't got a friend to save you now
The pulse beats with rage
What you do or say can't shake this cage
Force fed this lies for too long
Burned your lives away down to one

What's done is done so don't cry wolf
The guilt sets in it's bulletproof
Back track the steps you took from here
Worry about your own, not the ones of your peers

Pay the toll with the blood of ones soul
The bridge you cross the beast still holds
The world still burns
The plagued ones turn
Lies and deceit
Ashes to the urn
Track Name: Usurper
The crown is taken and the body broken
A whisper round the room and the word is spoken
Half cut at the end of an order
Hammer off the chest face down in the water
Don't you know what it takes to be a martyr?
To make the sacrifice and tear apart a brother
Too blind to see the underlying cause

Round 2 and the tables have turned
I got a finger on the trigger and a match to burn
The candle's lit as both end fight
To reach the middle first and kill the light
What's done is done in the name of honour
It's too late to turn back now and offer up another
Walking through quicksand
Every struggle pulls deeper

I can bare the burden
If you give it all to me
But I swear that I'll kill you if you ever try to
Put the blame on me

Now it's time to bring the judgement from the sky
And avenge with blood what they took from me
Now it's time
All men must serve and all men must die
And on this night
I will watch you

The time has come for solace
The time has come for peace
The time has come for a black and red armada
To bring them all to their knees
The war is not over
Battlements are overrun
Integrity, sincerity, necessary enemies
The storm age has begun
Track Name: Fate without Faith
Nothing is set in stone
You'll find the power on your own
The weak pray to bridge a gap between
A false sense of security
Where were you when time stood still?
Should i repent the guilt I feel?
Why should I believe the words of saints?
Words passed by generations always change

Born without sin
Free from within
Life without hate
Fate without faith

I'll take the lords name in vain
My will goes against the grain
Conjure up a saviour to look ahead
thou shalt not covet
Embrace you curse, driven by greed
All for the taking sin monopoly
Should I bow down and beg for forgiveness
Why my time is up I won't repent

Why should I try to be something I'm not
So you can tell me I'm guilty
For my sins that don't exist
Just say I'm guilty and move on
The sun sets on your crumbling palace
There will be no rapture
It's easier to live
When you have fate without faith

Say I'm guilty
Just say I'm guilty and move on
Track Name: Death Sentence (with a plan)
High winds under a desert sun
Cooking up a recipe for the tonne
What's started as survival
Now counting days until my time's up
They try to follow my lead
No tell tales are left behind
A mercenary lacks what the chemist will find

The rich cry poor
I want what's coming to me even more
Envy fuels the sin to sloth
Any measures taken at a cost

Will I stand tall and face the silence
If i should fall I gave my all
Will I stand tall and face the silence
A death sentence with a plan

Do not stand in his way
Or pay the price
A predator to his prey
Is it bark or bite?
A deep wound to fill the void
Something you can't ignore
Lies upon lies that never set
Easy to say not to forget

I can paint a picture with a pint of blood
I can wield an axe you put in the ground
I can feel these wounds that cut so deep
I don't need these demons driving me

I don't need these demons driving
Slowly taking changing within
Slowly taking
Changing within
Envy is gripping
