lyrics

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

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.
