about

Mass Murder Phenomena Cleveland, Ohio

Some say we're old school, but we're not nostalgic. Some say we're death metal, but Ryan’s vocals are mostly understandable. Kyle from Incantation said we sounded like old school Tiamat, so you can judge us on that. In our eyes, Mass Murder Phenomena is simply metal. You drink beer and headbang to it. ... more

Track Name: The Hunted
Constant visions so horrific
Programmed by the hive
Forced into rage
Now there is no place for us to
Hide ourselves
Even in a song
Necrotrophic minds
Sing the chorus all day long
Death has a hunger
Time is his hunter
Temptation and Addiction
Temptation and Addiction
A million martyrs marching as drones

Meat Avatars
Crave their own demise
The body will take you down
And you'll be dead before you even
Cry for help
No one hears your screams
The voices in the sky
Were only heard inside your youthful dreams

And now your virtue is decayed
And now your virtue is decayed

Now you're forced to walk alone
Bruised reflections
Will bring you closer to your final home
Keep the faith
And mind the flesh
And know the song upon its breath
Death has a hunger
Time is his hunter
Witness the phenomena
Mass Murder phenomena
Ego covets the trauma
Track Name: Cages of Creation
We have built our funeral pyres and burned away our days, but
The fires rose from ashen ground and killed our loved ones
In the blaze

Oh, the arrogance of youth

Now we wallow in pride
Now we are hollow inside
We brought this greed into our own hearts
And walk like kings who will not depart

We survey and watch our children play and hope that they'll survive beyond the wall, And when they leave their cages of belief we pray that they won't perish in the fall

Or fall in love
With the pain
Of hitting ground
That knows your name

Now we swallow our pride (from the knowledge)
Now we are humbled inside (we pay homage)
We brought this void into our own hearts (for the grieving)
And walk like ghosts who will not depart (never leaving)

Never, we will never leave this earth
Never, we’ll decay until rebirth

So say we all

When they leave their cages of belief we pray that they'll survive beyond the wall
And they won't fall
Track Name: Terror Forming
From a distant galaxy where the dark matter halo shines
Lies a hulking monolith that poisoned all their minds

And it spoke
Of its need
A simple thought

Let us form a stomping ground for the spirits incarnate
Make a realm that’s tangible with tastes that salivate
Let us ride behind their eyes and make it all seem real
Leave a longing in their hearts for the ethereal

Build a paradise
Peaceful and serene
Build the perfect world
And walk among your terraforming dreams

But something lurked inside the flesh
They did not foresee

Now, the deception is so clear

Carbon copied archetypes of inhuman sensation
Anarchistic harbingers of soulless stimulation

Carnal
Nightmare
Machines

Watch them crawl

Now they realize they were chosen for an insect cull
Now they curse the monolith and flee the corporeal

And from the ether plane
They watch them feed
The vile deed is done
Track Name: Sullen
Born between
Two extremes
Euphoric and wretched
Follow me into my lucid dreams
And see the focus of bloodshed

We are one observing entity
Receptors for this life
But you search for pain
You search for loss
I must erase
The signals of your acid thoughts

And your hollow winded laugh
And your empty minded words
Will not be heard tonight
And your ancient orange eyes
That I despise

Clear of conscious
Full of purpose

This day I feel on top of the world
My mood, is just right
Rivers in sullen, perpetual flood
Will wash away and cleanse this human
Blight that spreads so relentlessly
I am the cure you will never be

You taught me that I was not right
My mind, not like yours
Medication, incarceration
Showed me your world

Now I am torn
Between two minds
And the truth
That I can’t find

But this day I feel on top of the world
My mind, is just right
Rivers in sullen, perpetual blood
Will wash away and cleanse this human
Blight

Hail to the floods
Track Name: Dearly Departed
And on that day
You said those words
To push me away
And I became an empty shell

Lost on the shores of the Archeron

I tried so hard to show my love
I used my words instead of aggression
And some were harsh but most were caring
But you twisted them all and spit them back in my face

Now I will keep my mouth shut
And I will rise again

Now I’ll be the man you’ve made me
And I will live in apathy

No one will hurt me behind these walls

I fell in love with your beautiful sorrow
It felt so true to the pain in my heart
And I hoped one day we’d heal each other’s wounds
But you killed my love when you said those words

Dearly Departed
Track Name: Humanity in Remission
Rise
Head the call
Execute
Mankind’s fall

Gluttonous demons are born into this human crisis
Memories are burned away in fevered dream disguises
Stare in shock at those you love and know it’s flesh they crave
Familiar faces mock the past as they rise up from the grave

No…The twisted smiles
They…Go on for miles and miles

They’re machines of rotten flesh with sunken eyes of greed
A relentless horde of walking death with no will but to feed
Mother Earth has brought this curse upon the will of man
To purge the selfish animals who blindly rape her land

No hope for us
There is no hope for us now

When there’s no humanity in their eyes
Nothing left to gain from a selfish life
They have failed the test one last time
Now we have to pay for their crimes in blood

Still they marvel at the this rancid human plague
As they teach upon a culture of the vague

Now…The righteous see a sign
A symbol for all time
And quickly pass the blame
While the common man must
Stake their claim with head shot aim until all blood is spilled
Nothing learned and nothing gained for the blind will feel no guilt
Some were humbled by events but soon it turned to pride
Parasites and clever mites are all that’s left behind
No hope for us
There is no hope for us now

When there’s no humanity in their eyes
Nothing left to gain from a selfish life
They have failed the test one last time
Now we have to pay for their crimes in blood
Track Name: Living Deceit
At their feet forced to condone the
Lives lost carved into stone
Victims remain, nothing is gained but for the few

Power
Floods the world with misinformation

Dig another hole and fill it with the dead
Dig another hole and fill it with the dead

Twists the world with sick temptations

Dig another hole and fill it with the dead
Dig another hole and fill it with the dead

From above, they govern our days
Keep your head down and escape their gaze
Hoping to live a lifetime of peace
Keeping at bay the wants of the beast

As they
Sell the world our pounds of flesh

Dig another hole and fill it with the dead
Dig another hole and fill it with the dead

Creating scrapbooks for sociopaths

Dig another hole and fill it with the dead
Dig another hole and fill it with the
Trusting
Caring
Loving
Hopeful
Dead

We deny your dominance

Attracting all the worst
Corrupting all the best
The next empty hole will be in your head
Track Name: Lares and Larvae
Born in the breath of the solar wind
They will lead all of us to ruin

Can you smell the hunger in the air
Pulsing with the frenzy of human psychosis
Simple minds still unaware
Clouded by the envy of the mass hypnosis
Whispering a sirens chorus
Whispering quietly
Join us
Join us
Feed us carrion

They consummate the flesh to dirt and taste cadaverine
Feasting off the rancid nectar of your rotting skin
They have orchestrated your demise
Surprise
They have finally obtained their prize

Placing dead in sacred tombs and concrete burial vaults
Made them spread a frequency that amplified our faults
They control the frenzy of human psychosis
Murdering without protest
Hide the helpless victims far away in shallow graves
Always and forever til the end of all our days

And they will feed

Genocide and massacres will fill the massive graves
Always and forever til the end of all our days
Track Name: Liquid Structures
Yes I get it now, please just let me breath
Yes I get it now, please just let me see my son
One last time

Liquid structures claim my soul eternally
Beware of the million year centipede

When it crawls across decaying flesh
It whispers memories
Of life

When I was younger, I saw every second
Laid out before me, written in a story of light

Now I am older and see every pattern
Strung out before me, written in a tangent of lies

Casting their judgment, I fight as they try to enslave

They lead me to my grave

Please don't forget me
Please son, forgive me

Used up words and shady eyes relentless in their goal
Have found a target in the longing of my gentle soul

Years go by…I hope that I am near
Years go by…I hope that I am dear to your heart

Years go by…I hope to raise you right
Years go by…I hope you learn to love the light
Track Name: Invocation
Hallowed spirits
Listening to our timeless stories
Strung out heathens
Dance around their sacred quarry

To the ledges
We will go
To the edges
Of our wasted lives

No one dies upon these grounds
But most will go insane
Planting seeds of failed addictions
Deep into their graves

And the voices carry meaning from the songs that guide our way
And the path that’s always changing grants us peace when led astray

Eulogies for a dying world
Inspiration
For the endless

Searching for the reason and the sorrow deep inside
Knowing that we find it from the memories of delight

Melancholic words
We were born to speak
We will always find
The beauty that we seek

And we’ll keep on searching
