Jenrex Hands down one of the best metal albums of recent memory. The riffs are brutal, the solos shred, and the vocals are purely demonic. But the band isn't afraid to go into rhythmic sections and let their playing speak for itself. These guys pull influence from everywhere and it makes for a fascinating listening experience. The speed, groove, and talent on this album makes it a must listen Favorite track: Spiderwebs.

Track Name: Death As We Know It
These thoughts
Race into my mind
Of a blackened
Infinite Abyss
Darkness
Consuming every distant memory

This life
From the first to the last light
Many questions remain
When? Where do we go? Do we Leave in pain?
Searching for solace
Some find ideologies
Lying to their helpless souls
They hear the reaper calling out their name!
Fear of dying
Flee from the abyss unknown in Death!

Death as we know it's your time!
How? Why?
The knell has rung, now it's begun!
Livor! Rigor!
Offal mass cell decay!
Run! To your graves!
Rot in your graves as you're slowly eaten away!

From whence we came
We eternally remain!
It's futile!
Our sinful mortal vanity
Screaming!
Paranoia rapes my sanity!

Our gods
We claim they create life!
No proof, no evidence!
Blind my eyes and ease my fearful mind!
Hail & Obey!
And hear me pray!
Or rather live & seize the day!
The end is near it revels in dismay!
Fear of dying!
Flee from the abyss we know as death!

Death as we know it's your time!
How? Why?
The knell has rung, now it's begun!
Livor! Rigor!
Offal mass cell decay!
Run! To your graves!
Rot in your graves as you're slowly eaten away!

For the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable
As for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, & all liars
Their place will be in the lake that burns with fire!
Track Name: Basilisk
In its den
The Basilisk dwells
A creature with venom that burns to the touch

A toxic glare
The stare that kills well
Afflicted will suffer on after death

The tyrant beast
Came straight out of hell
Too horrid for Hades to keep under watch

Defenseless flesh
It’s cold-blooded sin
The serpent’s temptation
The end of me

Basilisk
Stare dawn the maw of the
Basilisk
Festering scourge of the
Basilisk
Slain by the plague of the
Basilisk

Basilisk
Stare dawn the maw of the
Basilisk
Festering scourge of the
Basilisk
Slain by the plague of the
Basilisk

The Devil’s pet
The Basilisk loves
The grotesque cadavers its victims become

Infectious death
It spreads like a plague
The corpses that litter the creature's cave

In your veins
Its venom will be
Diffusion’s illusion of safety and grace

And Death-to-all
It’s his only wish
To watch them all suffer and die in pain

Basilisk
Stare dawn the maw of the
Basilisk
Festering scourge of the
Basilisk
Slain by the plague of the
Basilisk

Basilisk
Stare dawn the maw of the
Basilisk
Festering scourge of the
Basilisk
Slain by the plague of the
Basilisk

The morning drip
Scrape of the crust
Constricting your flesh to squeeze out the pus

A cold abscess
Like clockwork it comes
The gift that keeps giving on endlessly

The spiral bane
It tears through you meat
Your offspring tormented, disfigured, and maimed

The deadliest catch
It swallows you whole
Usurping your body to propagate

Basilisk
Stare dawn the maw of the
Basilisk
Festering scourge of the
Basilisk
Slain by the plague of the
Basilisk

Basilisk
Stare dawn the maw of the
Basilisk
Festering scourge of the
Basilisk
Slain by the plague of the
Basilisk

Basilisk
Stare dawn the maw of the
Basilisk
Festering scourge of the
Basilisk
Slain by the plague of the
Basilisk

Basilisk
Stare dawn the maw of the
Basilisk
Festering scourge of the
Basilisk
Slain by the plague of the
Basilisk
Track Name: Volcanic Calamity
Ground starts to rumble
The buildings will crumble
And magma will flow

Tectonic attack
And the air turns to black
All from something below

And now wild flames
That cannot be tamed
And cannot be drowned

The spreading of fire
Situation's dire
Burn us to the ground

Cremate
The last of our kind
There is no escape we're confined

Incinerate
Everything in sight
Demonstrate our mother earth's might

We Immolate
The first of our sons
Throw them in the pit one by one

Obliterate
The air has gone dry
Chaos reigns we die

Volcanic Calamity
Volcanic Calamity
All hell is running free this is a
Volcanic Calamity
Magma arise from the sea in this
Volcanic Calamity

From all this commotion
The earth set in motion
The plan for our end

Destroy all our land
So we cannot withstand
And our lives you Expend

Tsunamis and quakes
There's flames on the lake
And death in the sky

Pissed off mother nature
And now we're in danger
Just don't ask me why

Too late
To stay the earth's hand
Our end is what she demands

Annihilate
The way that we live
To the earth, our lives we must give

She decorates
The land with our blood
Strange, for we once were her beloved

Manipulate
The earth, so we tried
Chaos reigns we die

Volcanic Calamity
Volcanic Calamity
All hell is running free this is a
Volcanic Calamity
Magma arise from the sea in this
Volcanic Calamity
Track Name: In Deluison
In misery he lives
Imprisoned by his madness
In delusion, curse from hell
The plan, the thoughts of malice

Wait for nightfall!
His demons will awake
The sickness digs in deep
Fire for one life to take

Panic!
Disgusting cold touch of the damned
A frantic mind!
His only end is suicide
Burn!
Engulfed by flames self-immolation
There they watch
Staring from the conflagration

Demented visions, apparition
Lurking in the shadow
Haunted by an image of a mangled flayed man
Hear the voice, in his head pleading for an end
The other side, It's calling
Death is to transcend!
Hallucinating Fear!
Rippling space, endless time
Reality slips away
His soul awaiting true destruction

Demented visions, apparition
Lurking in the shadow
Haunted by an image of a mangled flayed man
Hear the voice, in his headp pleading for an end
The other side, It's calling
Death is to transcend!
Hallucinating Fear!
Rippling space, endless time
Reality slips away
His soul awaiting true destruction

He sees what we cannot
His falsified reality
His mind is plagued by rot
The flame will finally set him free
The figure cloaked in black
Trapped inside, he goes insane
Reality plays back
Waiting for the screams of pain!

Burn!
Track Name: The Enemy
You waste of life, suck resources from society
Parents lament your very birth disowned entirely
You hate yourself, you hate it all, can't stand to be alive
The one way out, you know it's true, just hope you don't survive

You worthless trash, you suffer
You've been played for a sucker
You see me and take cover
I tell you, I'm not the enemy

Disgusting, rancid, piece of shit who no one ever loved
Just end it all, your friends ain't true, back-stabbed, betrayed your trust
You're running out of time, and soon the end will be delayed
The end will bring you peace and all this pain you will evade

The one you love is apathetic to this endless plight
To tell the truth i think they're with your best friend every night
Your brain diseased and no with cure alone, your anguished cry
I'm here for you just talk to me i'll tell them all goodbye

You put your death in writing
You live constantly fighting
You claim I am inciting
I ask you "Who is the enemy?"

I am the end
I am a friend
I will contend
Your heart I will mend
The end of your life
The end of your strife
We pick up the knife
One last piercing strike

Tight noose around your neck
You shaking, nervous wreck
Hope they don't come to check
Sure, I'll help, what the heck
Your life is heresy
You'll suffer endlessly
Now come, stop fighting me
We'll kill the enemy
Track Name: Eternal Damnation
God-forsaken blackened souls
Our fellow man our quarry
The time has come to pay the toll
Welcome to purgatory

Screams awaiting skies of blood
First thing at break of dawn
Eternity awaits us now
And so we suffer on

Open up the gates of Hell
The new guests have arrived
The demons say to us "Don't Fret"
For here you cannot die

Our souls are ripped out of our bodies
And thrown into the fire
And as we burn our lives cry out
Creating Satan's choir

The demon introduced to us
The great black magic caster
Eternally we are bound to him
For now he is our master

Toss us to the jagged rocks
Or feed us to the hounds
Lacerate our necks, in our own blood
We will be drowned!
Track Name: Blood On The Ice
Out all alone in the open waters
You're stranded out too far from home
A tiny cut dyes the sea deep crimson
A sense of fear then fills your soul
From the depths, the killers hunger
The Predator's skills honed by time
A growing blood-lust takes them over
And drives them to take your life

Get Thrashed
Thrashed by the viscous hunters from the depths
Whiplash
Pulled under hoping you can hold your breath
Red Waves
Stained crimson, now you're running out of time
No graves
No bodies, no souls, nothing left behind

Freezing to death
Take your last breath
Torn into shreds
Leaving nothing but Blood on the Ice
Stranded like prey
You are the entree
Devoured alive
Leaving nothing but Blood on the Ice

The taste of blood, it's overbearing
The water's turning opaque red
Feel the pain, your flesh is tearing
Just ten minutes and then you're dead
You try to fight in this frigid ocean
Through the chaos & disarray
Lament your doom in this endeavor
And accept your fate as prey

Get Thrashed
Thrashed by the viscous hunters from the depths
Whiplash
Pulled under hoping you can hold your breath
Red Waves
Stained crimson, now you're running out of time
No graves
No bodies, no souls, nothing left behind

Freezing to death
Take your last breath
Torn into shreds
Leaving nothing but Blood on the Ice
Stranded like prey
You are the entree
Devoured alive
Leaving nothing but Blood on the Ice

Clenching jaws, your limbs are severed
Ripped away by rows of knives
Be the hunted, face the terror
No one's here to save your life
Barely conscious, they eat your body
There'll be no carcass left to rot
A gaping mouth, that's so ungodly
A picture of your final thought

Get Thrashed
Thrashed by the viscous hunters from the depths
Whiplash
Pulled under hoping you can hold your breath
Red Waves
Stained crimson, now you're running out of time
No graves
No bodies, no souls, nothing left behind
Track Name: Demon In Black
Oh here she comes
She'll tear you apart
Was nothing from the start
She has an ice cold little heart
Reborn in fire pain is what she desires!

The demon in black!
No you can't survive this now!
You probably should've stayed away!
Oh you thought she was your friend!
Now your life you cannot mend!
One it starts it cannot end!

Everyone has one
Their own personal demons
Makes you writhe
Someone you've created
And now it's mine!
Now you're mine!

The demon in black!
No you can't survive this now!
You probably should've stayed away!
Oh you thought she was your friend!
Now your life you cannot mend!
One it starts it cannot end!

The demon in black!
No you can't survive this now!
You probably should've stayed away!
Oh you thought she was your friend!
Now your life you cannot mend!
One it starts it cannot end!
Track Name: Spiderwebs
Here I am
Caught in this web
A new place for me to rest my head
Now I’ve found this entanglement to relieve all my stress

No I can't stay for a while
Gimme that intoxication
A new way for me to get away
Here she comes, an eight-legged freak
Coming over here to liquefy me
Trapped again, I’m Trapped my friend
Take the breath, the breath of death

Spiderwebs
Rest my mind
And bring me peace inside
Spiderwebs
No one cares
The apathy entwined
Spiderwebs
One last fix
I’m not addicted to the
Spiderwebs
Bring my death
Somebody save me from the
Deadly mistress of the spiderweb

Now I can’t see anymore
I’m blinded by this cocoon
Will someone please help
Help me get out

Save me from this self-destructive trap
Venom takes the blood out of me, my veins freeze up, my lungs on fire
Congealing streams
Dripping down my arm
As my eyes roll back
Seizing endlessly
Fading slow, my life cries out, can't breathe anymore and now I die
Track Name: Torture Chamber
Wake
Your body weak and frail
A sound that breaks the silence
Fight
Or suffer another night
Depraved, sadistic violence
Scream
As terror fills your heart
As I come to the light!
Beg
For mercy, as I light the flame
And watch your flesh ignite

No end

Prey
A weak and helpless creature
The maggots eat your flesh
Cry
Your lovely tears of anguish
And my mind you refresh
Horror
Your eyes, filled with fear
As I pick up the knife
Pray
That I miss my mark
And hope I take your life

No end
No end
No end
You think I'm Done
You run, you hide, I find more time
You beg, you scream, you cry for life
There's no, escape, for you you're mine
You beg to die


Lie
Helpless in a pool of blood
And your body's excretions
Pale
Plagued with disease
Long for life's deletion
Writhe
You live without sustenance
Become an autophage
Brace
For pain, as I come closer
For now, you've come of age

I plague your life endlessly
From the day you were born until the day you die
There's no way to escape
From this horrible pain
You see, it's just your life


Come back for more
You run, you hide, I find more time
You beg, you scream, you cry for life
There's no, escape, for you you're mine
You beg to die
Track Name: Undead
Dead
It’s what you should be
You
Should not be standing in front of me
I
Laid you for your final rest
But
Looks like your back for a killing fest

Rise
Up from the grave
Feast
No matter what they try to save
Death
Creeps up on the human race
Now
Humanity is laid to waste

Army of corpses
Walk the earth
Come back to reclaim
Their lost turf
Seek out their vengeance
Beyond the grave
Undead
Undead


Walk
Across the land that we once tilled
Feast
Upon the flesh of those we killed
Rise
Decaying corpses standing tall
March
This undead army will not fall

Fall
Entire cities laid to waste
Move
On to destroy the populace
Bring
Upon the human holocaust
If
They live that means that we have lost

Army of corpses
Walk the earth
Come back to reclaim
Their lost turf
Seek out their vengeance
Beyond the grave
Undead
Undead
