Crossover Songs Are Too Damn Short (Demo)

from Do​-​Over by Lich King



I don’t have a problem with pizza or beer
or tons of mutated cannibal creeps
No, I don’t have a problem with any of that,
but crossover songs are too damn short

I don’t have a problem telling people to mosh,
hell, I’ve done it myself once or twice
No, I can’t throw stones at any of that,
but crossover songs are too damn short

What is the issue, where is the fire,
Are you dying to open the keg?
Is it that you just can’t wait to stop playing?
Is your songwriter cooking an egg?

Crossover songs are too damn short

Your songs are good
Your riffs are strong
But they’re only
Two minutes long

Your album’s great
But here’s the facts
It’s half an hour
With nineteen tracks

a second verse
would sure be nice
or write a bridge
use one riff twice
don’t slow it down
go the same pace
but you don’t have to finish your song first, this isn’t a race

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.
