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.

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!

Basilisk 04:37
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

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

In Deluison 02:47
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!

The Enemy 06:15
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

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!

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

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!

Spiderwebs 06:08
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

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

Undead 05:25
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
