𝔩𝔬𝔲𝔡-𝔮𝔲𝔦𝔢𝔱-𝔩𝔬𝔲𝔡 𝓐t the crossroads where heavy metal, doom, thrash and hardcore meet, there stands an old blacksmith's shack. A patchwork shelter of scrap metal, cedar and basalt, overlooking the pockmarked intersection where countless demonic deals were struck. Inside sits an anvil of arcane provenance, upon which the Kvlthammer forged the Oath. A week numbers 8 days in this realm, from 'Don't Try' through to 'Black Glow'. Endure your stay. Favorite track: Chains.

Don't Try 03:57
Solo: Nate Rev the fuck up and tear out your claws No class and no honor consumed Bail on your life and your spiritual rides Trip on your death absolute There are no more walls and nothing is real Lost on the concept of “now” Mysteries grasp and the leash of the past Has turned the heart upside down A symphony of liquor that makes us cry Alone unashamed I’m down for the ride Don’t try Hide in plain sight - Don’t chose a side Blow out your mind in disgust Unleash your fists - Born into piss Focus the soul to death lost Fuck all the thrones - Kill all the clones I don’t need hope or your trust Come alive now - Break from the drown Ignore me my name is unjust A symphony of liquor that makes us cry Alone unashamed I’m down for the ride Be a no one with atomic eyes Alone unashamed I’m down for the ride Don’t try Solo: Carl Solo: Nate

Fever 03:07
Clawed fist hammering down Pinning your face to the floor Tasting soil - Poisonous air Blood and spirit frozen cold Reviled - Cloaked by the night The aggressors begin their ill deeds Waiting for the final act A faceless choir of hallowed screams The damned continue their work Your pleas unanswered all the while Shadows - Growing longer A fever of hell takes your mind The cold stone altar awaits Limbs pierced - Severed clean Lifesblood - Flowing away Death remains to be seen The damned continue their work Your pleas unanswered all the while Shadows - Growing longer A fever of hell takes your mind Solo: Nate Solo: Carl

Chains 02:22
I’ve known you all before Somehow you’re far behind Life’s not so heavy, boy I can read your fucking mind Solo: Nate Slave yourself down my friend While I cut the chains Addictions to connections Taunted to insane Solo: Nate I’ve known you all before Somehow you’re far behind Life’s not so heavy, boy I can read your fucking mind

Weary and scarred, left no conscience Footsteps go forth through black night Safety abandoned, long since this stand No comforts or comrades Empty roads eternal lay before view Ghosts of enemies line each side Sanity - Frayed and diminished Pushing on! Existence defined by pain accepted Ignorant will, point of pride Singular focus to the outside Pushing on! Steady hand Clear mind Determination - Self realization Path given light by my climb Steady hand Clear mind Determination - Self realization Derided - Still I climb Empty roads eternal lay before view Ghosts of enemies line each side Sanity - Frayed and diminished Pushing on! Existence defined by pain accepted Ignorant will, point of pride Singular focus to the outside Pushing on! Steady hand Clear mind Determination - Self realization Path given light by my climb Steady hand Clear mind Determination - Self realization Derided - Still I climb

Wielding blood and fire from both hands Digging through the ether soul conjuring - Psychologies I’ll wrap myself in a nightmare haze To see a sight that can’t be found - Throne of disguise Ancestors laugh at your path The holy truth fucked in the ass The dust settles, we know who’s right No heaven or hell, only insight Opinions of snakes what you seek Your luster of power is weak Absolute and total hollowness I offer you all death Solo: Nate Into the woodwork away from you Your skin is clear, you wore it out - Priest of the false You gave it life but it will be choked Bitten, self-obsessed and insecure - Your fault Ancestors laugh at your path The holy truth fucked in the ass The dust settles, we know who’s right No heaven or hell, only insight Opinions of snakes what you seek Your luster of power is weak Absolute and total hollowness I offer you all death

Ignite all of the abuse Spread the legs of the trip Sliding down death’s tongue Swallowed thoughts exposed Pray Pray - Sex - Fear - Lies Sex Fear - Sex - Pray - Lies Fear Pray - Sex - Fear - Lies Lies Fear - Sex - Pray - Lies Solo: Carl Breathing leaves bloody eyes, the shine Take the drugs cuz they take no sides

Oath 04:24
The road is calling to lead us away Hungry for spoils of this life Rock ’n’ roll, whiskey and beer Standing tall - Kings - We ride Smoke and leather - The smell of exhaust Steel box, scarred - Carries its pride Electric church is the only belief In riff we trust, forever - All time Turn Up Drink Up Raise your fist This oath you must bind Claiming our domain, defending our stake Sacrifice - We sweat for tradition Rabid with lust - Stone deaf forever In riff we trust, forever - All time Turn Up Drink Up Raise your fist This oath you must bind Solo: Josh Turn Up Drink Up Raise your fist This oath you must bind

Black Glow 05:31
I dunno how deep I’ll go I can’t say how long I’d stay But I can’t find another way To touch the teeth of death My black glow inside It lives my life In the black side of the cave A lethal calm sucks through my face Sun to moon - I ask the self What is need and what’s ritual I dunno how deep I’ll go I can’t say how long I’d stay But I can’t find another way To touch the teeth of death My black glow inside It lives my life Solo: Nate
