about

Lich King Greenfield, Massachusetts

We create new old-school thrash metal in the vein of EXODUS, VIO-LENCE, S.O.D., SLAYER and others.

We think the sound of thrash was perfected in the 80’s and we’re not trying to add anything to the mix. We’re just coming up with riffs and songs that the old masters didn’t.

Track Name: Our Time to Riot
Disenfranchised and disillusioned, no hope in sight
Spending eight hours every day on someone else’s fight
Tyrannized by circumstance, oppressed and exploited by fate
Pinned down
By ghosts
And straining beneath the weight
Powerless and utterly sickened with myriad ills
Suffer in silence, file taxes and swallow your pills
Don’t resist the illusion, succumb to the rut
Yeah, that’s your weekday prison... but

Now’s our time to bleed the rage
In this tiny, darkened space
We all need, once in a while
To spit out all that pent-up bile
Your frustration, leave it here
By-product of your puppeteer
They don’t own you now
This is our time to riot

Those in command looking down from the upper tier
Gaze upon your struggle with an unsympathetic sneer
Somehow, the narrative is that the people chose
These thugs
These ghouls
The architects of our woes
Working class a pigpen kept by billionaire scum
Waddle on up to the trough, angry and numb
Two party system is an unconvincing sleight of hand
But they don’t know we know it
No, they don’t know we’re ready
The pit was our rehearsal

And now’s our time to start the war
Stop marching to the abattoir
Forefathers did not intend
What we now scarcely comprehend
They think you’re a worker drone
That serves them on their fucking throne
But they can’t stop us now
This is our time to riot

Stomp a plutocrat beneath your feet
At long last, the cattle seize the axe
See the oligarchs reduced to meat
Dead by their constituents’ attacks

Now’s our time, retaliate
To those who would decide your fate
Corporations, lobbyists
Did not foresee the obvious
Disaffected populace
A self-fulfilling consequence
It’s time
It’s time
Our time
To...
Riot
Track Name: Toxic Zombie Onslaught
Nuclear crypt is opened at last
Out come the shambling fiends
Rotten and groaning the zombies attack
Heedless of anyone's screams

Freed from their prisons in barrels of waste
Radioactive undead

Zombies are glowing they lurch and they crawl
Surrounding each house that they find
They know you're inside and bang on the wall
They'd here to help open your mind

They... have killed all the livestock
You're in for a shock
Double-check the lock
Fear the dead that walk

Toxic Zombie Onslaught x 4

Farmland is crawling with brain-eating ghouls
Cities begin to infest
One has attacked you you watch as it drools
and it begins to feed on your flesh

Freed from their prisons in barrels of waste
Radioactive undead

Conscious you're being devoured alive
Eyes glazing over you're gone
You start to glow and begin to revive
Join them and get moving on

You... kill all the livestock
Gorge upon the flock
Nuclear feast epoch
You're the dead that walk

Toxic Zombie Onslaught x 4
Track Name: In the End, Devastation
Mesozoic era, age of reptiles
Permian period, mammals live in exile

All at once there’s a fire in the sky
A wave of pure destruction in a sudden flash of light
Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction event
And everything is once more set to rights

Order is built on unnatural law
An attempt to keep chaos at bay
But you only can postpone things from falling apart
In due time everything goes away

There’s no hope
No salvation
In the end, devastation
Cosmic fate
A sad equation
In the end, devastation
Only
Ever
In the end, we die

Roman empire crumbled into ash and dust
That considered, what do you think will come of us?

Time goes on and the cracks are evident
Putting out the fires, an attempt to circumvent
Fiscal, social or tectonic collapse
There is no avoiding the descent

Order is built on unnatural law
An attempt to keep chaos at bay
But you only can postpone things from falling apart
In due time everything goes away

There’s no hope
for our nation
In the end, devastation
Gradual, the
Degradation
In the end, devastation
Only
Ever
Chaos

Atrophy
Entropy
Naturally
We all die
We all die
We all shall die

There’s no hope
No cessation
In the end, devastation
Universal
Condemnation
In the end, devastation
Only
Ever
All
