about

"A Shade of Red" sees the band take a different direction from their previous releases. It represents an amalgam of genres that include Djent, Industrial metal, metalcore, and ingrained traces of Nu-metal. The album directly laments over personal issues and many sociological elements that many struggle to deal with. The aim was to highlight the clash between the "self" and "environment", highlighting the issues associated with technology addiction, corporate cultures, educational systems, and addiction.

After the album's release, the band will be playing international summer festivals in Germany, Portugal, and second headlining spot in Sri Lanka. The first single "Silence the Sensor" released worldwide on the 31st March 2015.

Track Name: Silence the Sensor
Silence the Sensor-:-

Oh! We advanced but went in the wrong way,
The art form of communication now binary,
When did we cross the line, of being inept?

We got killed building in the mainframe,
Invisible wires, stretching for miles,
Always plugged in and live
Where do we go from here?

We all need that mother fucking update

Silence the sensor in you
Enslaved, you serve
It rings, you come running
Silence the sensor in you
Breathe in, log off
Look up, and breathe out…

It’s so pitiful
We only rely on the digital
Just to trend our lives away
I feel sick, I don’t even get it
How we willingly participate

Paint the town in a shade of red
Spill the blood that runs through all this technology
Broken down to a simple code
Bow your head, expose your neck to pull the plug

It’s so pitiful, we only rely on the digital
We all need that mother fucking update

Silence the sensor in you
Enslaved, you serve
It rings, you come running
Silence the sensor in you
Breathe in, log off
Look up, and breathe out…
Silence!
Track Name: Ethereal
Ethereal-:-

Running from silhouettes,
Roll down the curtains
Don’t let the light in
I’ve seen enough of my life go out the window
Leave me here to be, ethereal

Terrified, terrified
Cuz I’ve been here before
But it takes even for me to overcome
Tonight, there’s no return

Grit between my teeth, oh please
I don’t need your sympathy
I’m a pragmatic deadbeat
Undeserved potential in me
Wasted on learning how to fulfill
A craze for a comfort
Instead I just further derail

I can hear the silence deafening
I got me involved
I can hear the silence echoing
And it tears me up

Running from silhouettes,
Roll down the curtains
Don’t let the light in
I’ve seen enough of my life go out the window
Leave me here to be, ethereal

Terrified, terrified
Cuz I’ve been here before
But it takes even for me to overcome
Tonight, there’s no return

I’ve barely even scratched the surface
Tonight, I’ll take a knee, I’ll leave it all exposed
Leave me to be,
Leave me the fuck alone.

Peeling paint infects my walls
There ain’t a thing that you could do
My mind is numb, heed unwelcome
There’s no return

Tonight there’s no return
Track Name: Krypton
Krypton-:-

I’ve been here before,
But there are things I cant bear to tell you
I’m having dreams, I’m having dreams of it
I’m having dreams of it
And I know the only way to save you from the fire
Is to watch you burn
I’m having dreams, I’m having dreams of it
I’m having dreams of it

The sun was setting a normal night,
An earth dressed in crimson light
Before the mayhem was underway
The reasons were flawed the intentions were pure
Our understanding had outweighed the good
So much for wanting to change the world

Everything you want is death
Or at least you don’t know it yet
But the stars are better from afar
Cuz every step that you take forward
You don’t see yourself moving two back

I see circle come full, a deluge of sin
The worst of all within

I’ve been here before,
But there are things I cant bear to tell you
I’m having dreams, I’m having dreams of it
I’m having dreams of it
And I know the only way to save you from the fire
Is to watch you burn
I’m having dreams, I’m having dreams of it
I’m having dreams of it

My eyes don’t see the world
They only protect what my mind forgot
My eyes don’t see the world
Only conceal these memories
These fucking memories

I’ve been here before,
But there are things I cant bear to tell you
I’m having dreams, I’m having dreams of it
I’m having dreams of it
And I know the only way to save you from the fire
Is to watch you burn
I’m having dreams, I’m having dreams of it
I’m having dreams
Track Name: Trade Lie Census
Trade Lie Census-:-

They’re counting your self worth
In numbers and currencies
What are you bringing to the table?
Fork out your health, your time, and freedom
‘Til the money machine is fed stable
You think you rule my world
But I’m the bastard of all your sons
I see all of your hidden teeth
And through all your fucking smiles

How are we meant to progress
And work for men, while holding their pockets
For respect?
How do you want me to pay?
When money talks, but talk is so cheap
You never win

Their grasp forever exceeds their reach
And you’re the prosthetic they need
You’re either so far under the thumb
Or just a mean time contingency
Wipe your mouth, come clean
When you’re selling these chains to me
I speak your tongue; I trade your lies,
I am the corporate devil in disguise

How are we meant to progress
And work for men, while holding their pockets
For respect?
How do you want me to pay?
When money talks, but talk is so cheap
You never win

I’ll get what’s mine
I’ll get what’s mine

Change the power,
We don’t belong to them, don’t belong to them
Be the reminder,
Don’t belong to them, don’t belong to them
They make you believe its copper bottomed
Until you sign under the dotted line

Who am I to question the ways
Of the hands that fed me
Son of a family to never taste
The ail of making ends meet
But I seen the faces, the circumstances
Of those who deserve much more
And I fear for my own and what we become
Oh god it feels so wrong
It feels so wrong

Oh god it feels so wrong

It ain’t a lie, if you lie too
Ain't that the truth?
Everybody just makes their own
Aint that the policy man?
Who’s ahead can fucking break the contract...
Track Name: Shelter
Shelter-:-

I don’t belong to this terrain
Limits and boundaries are set by the rule
And the contour of all that we create
But I refuse to resign
That I’m bound to a society
Cold and maligned

I know a body that holds
Somewhere that I can call home
It was there for our beginning and knows
That we will all be erased

Pull me down beneath the waves
Show me havens where secrets remain
Cuz I’m not concerned about now
I only care about where I start again
And the ocean is our sacred origin

Shelter me for ages, and hide me from the day
I want to live down in the darkness
And remain a mystery
Cuz the world don’t understand me
And maybe I’m to blame
But I got my head under the surface
Spread my heart across the seas

Pull me underneath
Pull me underneath
Pull me underneath
Spread my heart across the seas

I don’t belong to this terrain
Limits and boundaries are set by the rule
And the contour of all that we create
But I refuse to resign
That I’m bound to a society
Cold and maligned

Pull me down beneath the waves
Show me havens where secrets remain
Cuz I’m not concerned about now
I only care about where I start again
And the ocean is our sacred origin

Shelter me for ages, and hide me from the day
I want to live down in the darkness
And remain a mystery
Track Name: Got the Gift
Got the Gift-:-

I got the gift; the means to explain
But the more I know the more I’m forlorn
I hold the crown but see all its mistakes
Take back from me my intellect
Cuz I can’t use it

I observe, and just waste my time
Deflect from the hidden agenda
There are things here that don’t belong

Theories I can’t deny, reasons that opened my eyes
Lessons that freed my mind are taking shape
Leave me what’s left behind

I got the gift, I got the gift
Ignorance is bliss
I got the…. I got the gift

I got the gift; the means to explain
But the more I know the more I’m forlorn
I hold the crown but see all its mistakes
Take back from me my intellect
Cuz I can’t use it

Reduced as a laud to me, and I know,
Their truth is a lie, these pages and lines
Unfold vile design
I see the signs

I can see the…
I can see the signs

Once you see you can’t undo
What your mind is so well taught to
I thought I had the tools to put it all to use
So I could change it all

To change it all

Reduced as a laud to me, and I know,
Their truth is a lie, the pages and lines
Unfold vile design
I see the signs, and I know
Their truth is a lie, the pages and lines
Unfold vile design

Cuz I can’t use it…
Track Name: Mirrors
Mirrors-:-

Damned if I do (move on)
Damned if I don’t (let go)
Guilty of having soft hands, but you’re are stained with blood
Always ambivalent, as you’re working your lies out

I’m wiser to the words
I’m wiser to the ways
I see right through
The smoke and mirrors you exude to me

Set me on fire
Burn away the truth
Cuz maybe I’m a liar
But something tells me so are you

Everything that I loved
A solid foundation, a sense of integration
A connection adorned
Everything you’ve become
An imitation, a filth forever jaded
You are a fucking fraud

Father you were right….

Got back the life, got back the life
That you stole from me

Set me on fire
Burn away the truth
Cuz maybe I’m a liar
But something tells me so are you

Father you were right…

You are a fucking fraud
Track Name: The Hunt
The Hunt -:-

Your world, and your life
Are nothing but a game to me
I’m terraforming the places you love
To fucking hunt you down
Try all you want to use your surroundings to hide
But you’re better off running
I’m terraforming the places you love
To fucking hunt you down

So many lies I let pass, everybody thinks that I don’t have
What it takes to cut you down to size
Rabid with bones that are post-mortem cold
And the look of murder in my eyes
Use the dark, take the night
But the shadows all belong to me
I am the apex, the calculated
Regret is a feat I don’t fucking have

Your world, and your life
Are nothing but a game to me
I’m terraforming the places you love
To fucking hunt you down
Try all you want to use your surroundings to hide
But you’re better off running
I’m terraforming the places you love
To fucking hunt you down

I’ll fucking hunt,
I will hunt you down

I hear you cry, I can hear you pleading form here
That don’t do nothing, that don’t do nothing to me
I got my mind set,
Killer instinct kicking in me
I know you’re scared
I see every move you make with the fear

Your world, and your life
Are nothing but a game to me
I’m terraforming the places you love
To fucking hunt you down
Try all you want to use your surroundings to hide
But you’re better off running
I’m terraforming the places you love
To fucking hunt you down

I’m already behind you
Track Name: Never Been Clear
Never Been Clear -:-

Relapse! Back to the beginning again
Empathizing voices within mean to conspire
I need to find my totem
Cuz I’m in a dream deferred, and it’s growing dire
Maybe I deserve disgust, deserve disdain
Cuz I found a solace and a poise
With those who feel the same
Who feel the same…

Me and all my dreads, coalesced
Fed into me so far
I barely know who represents
What were once episodes,
Takes me again and again
And I feel I’ve lost control
Looked for hope and found more pain
Does it make me sick,
That I know feel even more in place?
What were once episodes
Takes me again and again
And I feel I’ve lost control

Release me

Calling out cuz there ain’t a thing I can do
I was wrong cuz my conscience has never been clear
I’m finding a way I’m finding a way to
Make it out all right
I was wrong cuz my conscience has never been clear

Conscience has never been
Conscience have never been,
Clear…
