Scumbag The Lamb Of God influences abound throughout this mind-smashing release! I'm not suggesting that Frayed And The Fallen are clones by any means, they certainly retain their own artistic integrity, but the Lamb Of God influences are undeniable (to my ears). I think the occasional clean vocals have been mixed a little too loudly and this EP would have benefitted by lowering them, but aside from that Torn Skies hits hard and heavy as a meteorite! Favorite track: Memento Mori.

Track Name: Memento Mori
I have walked the lands untainted
We have razed cities of stone
I have drained, blood of the ancients
Charred corpses, the horde's remains

Ashes remain after flames cleanse this plane
No death shall satisfy me
Immortal, I'm a god amongst men
Nations fall beneath my heel

Concealed my fate
Would I scream tormented
Though sharp I cannot bleed
Has death forgotten me

Listen now, the cries of burning blades
Jagged fear shall be instilled
Do not pray when strings are plucked aloud
Carry this to your fucking grave

You still breathe, treat this with gratitude
Do not dare claim fate your own
Favour gained, of the gods you follow
Winning hand easily removed

Concealed my fate
Would I scream tormented
Though sharp I cannot bleed
Has death forgotten me

This is your final dawn, eternal rest
Remember you are dust
And unto dust you shall return

A dragons tooth, in a mortals hand
I rip, I maim, I divide the land
Caught unaware, the beast now ensared
Lifts up his head as he takes one last glare

You will die
Track Name: Scope
Look at me now
I am all that you've made me

Flip the coin, prepare to join
The confused state of a shattered boy
Enter the stage, play the game
The last laugh will be yours today

From the darkness they will see
Watch as the separated fall
Fear is the only thing I know
Your decimation clutches to you

You dug this hole
Prepare to reap what you've sown
Speak not to me, for your time has come
Face me with steel, and not your tongue

Give it a minute you thought you could win it
But this is a mountain that you won't climb

From the darkness they will see
Watch as the separated fall
Fear is the only thing I know
Your decimation clutches to you

Shadows remain
It's the only thing I know
End of days

You turn your back to me
You drown yet I can't breathe
No longer shall I be used
No more will I be fooled

You turn your back to me
You drown yet I can't breathe
Betrayed, I lost my way
I'm blind yet see the fucking truth
Track Name: Invidia
We're free

Step inside the ring and we will finally see
Who truly lives by the sword
Broken through the chains
These hands are finally free
And this time you're all on your own

Who are you to judge the crowd
When all you do is feed the shroud
Veiled upon the public eye
Spreading lies from the day of birth
There's no one left to analyse your worth
Regurgitate all you have learned

Controlling everything I see
This scum secretes hypocrisy
This wave of controversy will fall
Shall we begin

Stand up tall and walk this path with me
You've never known nor have you seen
What we're about to achieve

Open your mind to this deceit
Believe what you decide is true
When the tyrant calls we will respond
It's time to finish what's begun

Remember why you're here
This isn't just another day
We live this, we breathe this
Our strength, our will cannot be held

We will not pander to the bullshit you have fed us
Feel my hatred, born of everything you've shown us

We can only triumph now
With the power we have gained
We cannot be trampled now
That we many stand as one

Now we have what we came for
The oppression ends today
No longer will we bow down
To our enemies posed as friends

Open your mind to this deceit
Believe what you decide is true
When the tyrant calls we will respond
It's time to finish whats begun
Track Name: Subversion
Serenity slight among dying calls
The muffled sound of retreat
Our right denied

Icons replaced with a knife in the soil
The deafening roar of machinery
Blood spilt under seas

Clowns go on laughing as their pockets fill
The ringmaster nods, the signal to kill
The audience fold beneath weight of regret
How much does she pay
How much do you get

A signature can't stop the revolt
Conquest has made the call
The debt must be paid
Mother, your children have failed you again
Your eyes once shone blue
Now humanity gray

Clowns go on laughing as their pockets fill
The ringmaster nods, the signal to kill
The audience fold beneath weight of regret
How much does she pay, how much do you get

Gaia once answered the demands of you all
The greedy, the needy, the rich and the poor
Dead verses rehashed and released again
Will she get the truth before she takes her last breath

Blindly we wait while the questions keep circling truths
When I ask you speak, I want to hear your voice
Speak your truth, straight from you

Don't you ever forgive
Don't you ever forget
All your angels are dead

Our right denied
Your debt must be paid

How much does she pay
Don't you fucking forgive
Don't you fucking forget
Track Name: Torn Skies
Never had the chance
Never had the voice or reason
Bonds broken on sight
The only truth was built on lies

The ashes stained my skin
Cold steel burnt beneath my reason

Consequences earned
Lessons never learnt
Destructive state of mind
Stand down, or push to the front line

I hear their voices, they scream for reprieve

I've severed all the ties
Shattered the disguise
Destructive state of mind
Stand down, or push to the front line

Never forget the dead still bound in iron
Never regret, torn skies, the earth is fading
As the collective mind of humankind meets with demise
The only truth I know was built on lies

I concede
The treasure found below
The secrets buried beneath
They've lived without, they'll die the same
They'd rather bleed than reconnect with their fucking souls

Release me from this tomb
I've taken all I can consume

The hammer falls and the sentence reads
Innocent fry, the accused walk free
Have you ever looked into their eyes

Question this life, when all else is ruins
Look to the sky, your strength is bound within your words

I've severed all the ties
Shattered the disguise
Destructive state of mind
Stand down, or push to the front line

Never forget the dead still bound in iron
Never regret, torn skies, the earth is fading
As the collective mind of humankind meets with demise
The only truth I know was built on lies

Stand down, or push to the front line
As the collective mind of humankind meets with demise
The only truth I know was built on lies
