Scumbag Oddly straightforward death metal that manages to work within complicated structures and forms! Certainly makes for more interesting (and entertaining) listening than your run-of-the-mill brutal metal band. The difference is that Tusk puts forward the idea that it is possible to inject musicality into the mix rather than simply being brutal for brutality's sake. Brilliant stuff! Favorite track: Rancour.

Track Name: Misdirected Mayhem
SON, REACH OUT FOR THOSE UNJUST MORALS FORGOTTEN, WE’VE FORTIFIED!
ARE WE SAFER IF WE JUST OBEY THEM? DO WE GET TO PLAY HERE, FUCKING ALL THAT’S SACRED?

WE SHARE OUR FATE, THOUGH WE DISAGREE, ITS ALL THE SAME, THOUGH ITS DIFFERING!
SO FAR FROM WHAT WE STRIVE FOR, STILL WE, STAND APART IN TREPIDATION
HIDDEN IN FALSE UNIFICATION, STARING AT ONE INDEFINITE OUTCOME
SO FAR, YET WE’VE COME NOWHERE HAVE WE? WHO’S THERE TO TELL US WHO WE SHOULD BE!

SUN EXTINGUISHING, RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES
BEHOLD THIS BREATHTAKING VISION THAT YOU ALL DESPISE

TRUST, REACH OUT, REACH OUT AND TRUST, FOR ITS IN BELIEF WE UNIFY US
NOW WE STAND, WE STAND UNJUDGED, BELIEVE THAT NO ONE WILL DEFY US

SO TORN APART, RIPPING THE FUTURE AWAY, ALL FALLS APART, FORGETTING WHAT WE’VE THROWN AWAY, OUR SOUL’S AFAR, TRAVELLERS LOST IN THE WAKE

FORWARD ON THIS PATH WE KNOW WE’VE WALKED BEFORE, FORGET OUR PETTY DIFFERENCES, DIVISION IS OUR SICKNESS, UNRECOGNIZED, PROPHECIES FROM OUR MESSIAH, DENIED!

GRASPING AT THREADS EVEN THOUGH WE CAN’T REACH, IDEALS SO DIFFERENT, SO WE’RE…. THRUST DOWN

SUN EXTINGUISHING, RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES
BEHOLD THIS BREATHTAKING VISION THAT YOU ALL DESPISE

OUR FATE’S NOT SET, IF WE DECIDE, ITS IN HOW WE JUDGE, OUR FAITHS DENIED
OUR FAITHS DENIED
Track Name: Army of Brothers
FRACTURED MIND IN A LAND OF DESPISED, REMINISCENT OF A PAST FROM A TIME OF DEMISE, CONTROLLING FEAR GRIPS THE BRAVE AS THEY STAND SIDE BY SIDE, HEARTS ARE BEATING SOULS ARE BLEEDING

RISE, TIME TO STAND MY BROTHERS IN ARMS
FIGHT, FOR THE LIVES OF THE ONES WHO DARED TO STAND AND FIGHT BY YOUR
SIDE, THOUGH THE ENEMY’S 10:1 AND COUNTING
HEARTS ARE BEATING, SOULS ARE BLEEDING AS ONE

SHOW THE LIGHT TAKE THE FIGHT FROM THE INSIDE
CONGREGATE ALL YOUR RAGE, LET ITS LEASH FLY
OPEN UP ALL YOUR HATE TO ME
HEARTS ARE BEATING, SOULS ARE BLEEDING
HOLD THE LINE, SIDE BY SIDE, NEVER RUN
THEY’LL BRING THEIR FISTS, BLADES, FLAMES, WHO GIVES A FUCK?

TIME TO FIGHT MY BROTHERS IN ARMS
RISE, WHEN THE TIME COMES TO FACE THEM YOU’LL DEVOUR AND DISGRACE THEM, ERASE THEM, ERADICATION, MAKE THEM…BLEED OUT

YOUR WILL IS WEAK, YOUR ATTEMPTS TO DEFY ARE FUTILE, YOUR FORCES WILL BE OBLITERATED
HOLD THE LINE TILL ITS TIME TO RISE
SIDE BY SIDE WHEN ITS TIME TO FIGHT
NEVER RUN TILL THE DAY WE DIE
GLORY’S OURS WE’LL TAKE IT WITH YOUR LIFE

SHUT THEM OUT – FORWARD, NOWS THE TIME FOR YOUR BATTLE CRY
FED THE FRUITS OF YOUR DISCONTENT? WE WONT SUCCUMB, NO WE WILL RISE

WE’RE GOING TO CUT STRAIGHT THROUGH
THESE COWARDS, BRING THEIR BLADES TO CUT US DOWN, BRING THEIR FLAME TO BURN US DOWN, NOW ITS TIME ITS TURNED AROUND
HERE WE STAND, OPEN ARMS TAKE THE CHANCE TO CONQUER US, DO YOUR BEST TO TRY AND BURY US HERE, WE WONT SUCCUMB, NEVER RUN!

SIDE BY SIDE HOLD THE LINE, SIDE BY SIDE, HOLD THE LINE, HERE’S THE DAY WE’VE BEEN WAITING TO DIE FOR! HOLD THE LINE! HOLD THE LINE!

WE’RE GOING TO CUT STRAIGHT THROUGH THESE COWARDS
BRING THEIR BLADES TO CUT US DOWN, BRING THEIR GUNS TO SHOOT US DOWN, BRING THEIR FLAME TO BURN US DOWN

SHOW US THE LIGHT
AND YOU’LL BLEED IN THE DARK
Track Name: Rancour
CLOSET SCHEMER, DECEIVER, MISLEAD TOWARD SUBTLE DISSENT, A RETRIBUTION TO YOUR OWN SUCCESS, LOST IN THE DEPTHS OF DISAVOWEL
YOUR WORDS ARE ALL MISPOKEN, YOUR PROMISES UNTRUE, YOUR WORTHLESS, SO HELPLESS, YOU’LL HIDE BEHIND YOUR LIE

YOUR LIFE – SACRIFICED WITH NO FIGHT FOR…
MY LIES – IS THIS HATE IN DISGUISE?
YOUR LIFE – SACRIFICED WITH NO FIGHT FOR…
MY LIES – THIS IS RANCOUR DISGUISED

HELPLESS SCREAMING, DISBELEIVE, WORDS SCREAMED UPON DEAF IGNORANCE, SUFFER SWEETLY, SO DREAMY, WAKE TO KNOW YOUR EXSISTENCE – OBSOLETE!
LOOK UP THE SKIES ARE CLOSING, BACKS TURNED LIKE SHADOWS GROWING, YOUR DIGGING THE GRAVE BEFORE YOU, THE HANDS OF REGRET THAT HOLD YOU, YOU’LL DIE INSIDE YOUR LIE

YOUR LIFE – SACRIFICED WITH NO FIGHT FOR…
MY LIES – IS THIS HATE IN DISGUISE?
YOUR LIFE – SACRIFICED WITH NO FIGHT FOR…
MY LIES – THIS IS RANCOUR DISGUISED
WORD AREN’T COMFORTING, IF YOUR ACTIONS DON’T MEAN A THING

DON’T TURN YOUR BACK, DON’T TURN YOUR BACK!

FORGIVE FOR THE LIES AND THE PROMISES, I’VE MISLEAD
FORGIVE ME FOR THE TIMES I SAID I’D BE THERE AND WAS ABSENT
FORGIVE ME FOR THE WORDS I SHOULD HAVE NEVER SAID
I BEG OF YOU, FORGET YOUR RESENTMENT

OPEN THE SKIES, OPEN THE SKIES, DON’T CLOSE THE SKIES! WHY?!?!?

YOUR LIFE, FOR MY LIES

YOUR LIFE SACRIFICED WITH NO FIGHT FOR MY LIES, IS THIS HATE IN DISGUISE, IS THIS YOUR LIFE, OR MY LIE?
Track Name: Conflicting Contemplation
FORWARD INTO THE ARMS OF THE CREATION
EMBRACE THE DEVASTATING KISS OF THE BETRAYER,
PORTRAYING AN ALLY IN TRUSTED ARMS
WERE WE SO WRONG?

DON’T STOP TO, ELOPE THIS, THIS ROPE THAT’S CONSTRICTING
OUR POWER STRUGGLES DEFINED BY THE WAY WE GRASP OUR MINDS
NOW DON’T YOU HEAR LISTEN, NO REASON OUR LEADERS WONT ROB US BLIND TO FUEL THEIR
NEED FOR THIS DECONSTRUCTION
FALL OUT, BACKWARDS, EYES CLOSED, FLESH BURNED, IN TURN YOU’LL FEEL THE AFTERMATH OF

ACTIONS TURNED TO REACTIONS, FROZEN INACTION, SEWN IN BROKEN WORDS
FACES LIFTED SUDDENLY TURNED EXPRESSIONLESS, DROPPED STRAIGHT TO THE FLOOR
OUR DENIAL TO THIS EXSISTENCE IS FUTILE IF WE HAVEN’T LEARNED
IF WE CHOOSE TO EXSIST, THEN WE BREAK THE MOULD
FORM AS ONE, OR FORM AS NONE
FALL…

EVERYONE FALLS, EVERYONE CRAWLS, EVERYONE CHOOSES TO STAND SO ABROAD
IF BUT ONE FLIES, AND ONE DENIES DENIAL THEN WE’LL FORM AS ONE AND
RAISE
RAISE THIS WORLD’S ENSLAVED, SO FORSAKEN SO FUCKED, SO STRIPPED DOWN, SO ABSENT OF HONOUR AND LUCK
THIS WORLDS ENSLAVED, LEST WE BETRAY THOSE WHO SAY

SEW YOUR EYES, LOOK NOT AT RIGHT, LET US DECIDE, THERE IS NO SUCH DESTINY

FORWARD, INTO YOUR DOOM
FORWARD, THOUGH SO CONFUSED
FORWARD, THIS WEIGHT IS YOU
FORWARD, NEW LIFE ENSUES
