Bringer of War:
I am the Bringer of War
Armed with my hatred and more
And I'm here to set things right
I am the Breaker of Chains
The only chance that remains
And I'm gonna start a fire
From The Sky:
Execute, our device, adapt to kill, organize
Calculate, by design, exterminate, purify
A Dying Machine:
As deep as any ocean
Like the promise of the morning sun
Never ending, Never done
The scale of my devotion
I crave until we love again
Follow to the bitter end
Like walking in a nightmare
A travesty, a shell born dead,
Relentless as you like it
Never ending, Never gone
Never changing, Never done
Never changing, Never done
So put your trust in me
So I can show you how
To leave your past behind
So I can make you mine, make you mine
Throw Them To The Lions:
One look and you
Step into the fire that burn until
I wake and we’ll
Throw Them To The Lions
Throw Them To The Lions or watch them drown
Make It Hurt:
I’ll stand, rise up, and be first
Conform and the pain will only be worse
Disgraced, abandoned again
A sacrifice, not if, oh but when
Turn back, obey them no more
Now unchained you’ll rise like before
I’ve been waiting my whole life
Just to set it right
.....And I’m gonna Make It Hurt
Traipse to the back of the wood
Told you that I could
Quieted by the storm
Shake till the fear is gone
Plunge to the deep of the lake
Took all I could take
Found a new strength in me
Now I move on to the sea
The First The Last:
You were the first, the last, now everything is wrong
You were the air I breathe, now all I need is gone
A Lot Like Sin:
Malice provides where mercy fails
Our legacy weaves a morbid tale
Why walk the path to a fate unknown
Turn to wrath or die alone
The Day When Legions Burned:
You can sleep when you’re dead
No time wasted
Your many wounds will not heal
Destined to fail
As The Silence Becomes Me:
When the moment redeems me, I could not be found
At the moment it feels like, maybe years from now
Oh the moment deceives me, It could not be real
As The Silence Becomes Me, I could never feel, never feel
Take You With Me:
I'll take your hand in mine
And never let go
I'd give my life to find what you already know! (You already know!)
Open the sky take me in
I face desolation again.... no
Sift through remains of decay
Corrosion, the strength drips away...no
NO LYRICS, INSTRUMENTALTRACK-BY-TRACK OPINIONSBringer of War:
*Starts out with a bangin’ intro. Love the drums!
*Kind of feel like the vocals took a back seat to the rest of the song, but they still serve the song well. Especially in the chorus.
*Nice verse guitars
*Erocks bass work stands out to me...
*THAT BRIDGE/OUTRO RIFF AND THAT FIERY SOLO!!From The Sky:
*Nice recurring riff with the major tuning!
*The chorus kind of bugged me at first but now I just love singing Oh woah a long with Mark!
*Bridge was good. Solo was standard Tremonti!
*I wish the song had a bit more diversity, but its a banging song nonetheless!A Dying Machine:
*Love the fact the title track is the longest song on the album
*the reoccurring main riff is simple yet still pretty badass
*Marks vocals, lyrics, and melody are once again a standout on this track. How he switches his tones and moods for the different perspectives is a nice touch.
*Its okay that this song doesn’t have a solo, But I would have been okay with one in the outro.
*THAT BRIDGE! GOD DAMN! One of the best bridges the band has done IMO.
*I sometimes feel like the last two chorus’ are a bit repetitive with repeating the line “You’re A Dying Machine!” four times in both, especially on repeated listens. Trust:
*Nice intro! Kind of different, which is good!
*The chorus took a minute to get used to melodically, but I love the message!
*Bridge seem to have the same kind of feeling melodically as the chorus, but again I enjoy it now after a couple listens!
*LOVE The outro! The end where Mark goes in falsetto was so beautiful!Throw Them To The Lions:
*HOLY FUCKING SHIT THE RIFFAGE IN THIS SONG IS INSANE!
*I love the aggression in Marks vocals in this song! You can really tell he’s pissed!
*The chorus is so catchy yet so aggressive it blends perfectly!
*THAT VERSE RIFF!
*The lyrics in this song are so badass!
*THAT BRIDGE! THAT SOLO! Face-melting shredder!
*THAT OUTRO!Make It Hurt:
*Love the muffled effect at the intro!
*Again another super catchy and heavy as hell main riff!
*The melody in the verses and Marks vocals on top of the riff just get you amped!
*One of my favorite choruses on the record! I love the melody!
*Nice mini-solo in the bridge!
*Love the outro solo! It almost sounds like it mimics the melody of the song in some placesTraipse:
*Nice acoustic guitar intro!
*Marks vocals are yet again a highlight of this song! I cant stop gushing about them on this record!
*I like how the song kind of changes the mood between the verses and the chorus! The chorus seems heavier and then the verses pull it back again
*Awesome bridge and solo!The First The Last:
*Nice acoustic intro!
*Marks vocals are so beautiful combined with the heartfelt lyrics!
*This song has a very beautiful atmosphere to it

*Love the heavy intro!

*Nice little guitar lick before the bridge!
*Blistering outro solo and riffage!As The Silence Becomes Me:
*Always a plus when its on the longer side (5+ minutes)
*Lovely guitar intro!
*Love the piano/strings/keyboard whatever it is throughout
*Marks vocals, lyrics, and melody are so fucking good in this song I'm always amazed at how good he sounds
*Erocks harmonies are on point!
*Another song, like ADM, that benefits from not having a guitar solo, IMO. But I could have seen one happening after the bridge.
*HOLY SHIT THE BRIDGE Take You With Me:
*Very early 2000s pop-punkish vibe to the song
*Love the verse riff
*Very catchy chorus!

*Least favorite of the pre-releasesDesolation:
*Love the acoustic intro!
*Marks vocals are so soft and beautiful in the intro & verses
*This song does an amazing job of building up towards the climax of the song! I get goosebumps when the reoccuring riff kicks in midway through
*Marks vocals in the bridge and near the end gave me chills
*Amazing and beautiful solo!
*The reoccuring riff is an amazing outro riff.Found:
*I wasnt sure how to feel about this song at first given the reviews it was getting from others, but I actually quite like it! Nice effect with simulating A Dying Machine!RATINGVocals:
