Matthew Rukgaber Two amazing songs that fit with the technical progressive metal of their previous album. Think Mr. Bungle with death metal influences. I love what this group is doing. Favorite track: The Kadishtu Brotherhood.

Track Name: McMurdo's Statement
THE MCMURDO’S STATEMENT
(An Incident at the Royal Geographic Society)

Discretion must be my primary aim...
“The truth still sleeps in the infinite depths”
My lie is reflected just in an unexpected... face,
“My privileged mind will give birth to the golden door...”
Still... Closed

Request - Rejected - A plan’s still in a larval stage,
Unknown floods flowing through time and space,
But I need desperately, a reallocation of these funds,
Or You’ll face the rage of the Kadishtu brotherhood...

“Hell, they are just men... distinguished members of the society”

Listen ... My Command

“We should do better not to pronounce certain words,
It’s not convenient, to speak about extortion and threats.
But if we can’t obtain these funds I will be compelled to,
Mention certain shameful secrets all you know are true.

I only see a group of weak and plucked fowls,
Playing with their new toys; guided by old fashioned rules.
You bunch of affected people don’t you dare reply to me,
The way you lead this institution it’s a shame (disgracefully)”

Do not oblige me - to punish you - frail minded fools
Because behind me - there are powers you can’t understand
Interests - that come from - places you - can’t imagine

I only see a group of weak and plucked fowls,
Playing with their new toys; guided by old fashioned rules.
You bunch of affected people don’t you dare reply to me,
The way you lead this institution it’s a shame (disgracefully)”

I can assure you - cretins - that I will end
All this family shelter...
With this warm environment...

My life past before my eyes...
A child fighting against the world,
Stoically and without letting up in the struggle,
The countless hardships caused by the hunger,
The cruel repression of the authorities...

Stoically... I always fought alone
I was walking along without help from anyone

It’s my time
It’s my chance
I won’t let it go

By joining this brotherhood
I will starve no more

Track Name: The Kadishtu Brotherhood
The Kadishtu Brotherhood

(Spoken)
The night - falling - over - the roofs - in the dark and old town...
My shoes – (are) leaving - footprints - on the ground - While the rain pouring down...

I walk through narrow alleyways... Cobbled paths meander through the old streets,
Echoes of unknown words inside my head - My life’s hanging by a thread...

(Spoken)
It seems - I sold - my soul – to those - who worship the unmanifest
But I - lie I - cheat I - just look - for my own interests

I come and knock on a door painted in black,
Suddenly a sinister eyes looking through a sight glass,
Secret greetings, I see the glyphs of the society signs...
Horror chants at the altar of sacrifice

(Spoken)
But now I - have a - chance to - escape – from my - damned fate...
The debts – chase me – I run away - Tired to roaming around

Holy Fuck

I see all those faces covered with black clothes - In wooden stands...

The stench of madness, sweat, vomit and incense
Holding the knife in my hand, ready to defend myself

Horrendous murder, I must look away,
Two girls were chained... Like moths in the spider web

Chaos – Hypnosis – Demonstration of strength,
Sterling Silver Pendant,
The poisoned smoke of enslavement

Since - my - first - vi - sit - I - live - te - rrified
In - night - mares - where - I - crawl - through - deep
Fro - zen - tu-nnels - ne - ver - seen - before
While - e - vil - eyes - watch - my - martyr - dome

A cult built in terror, based in blood,
A tangle of words - resounding in my head

Cht´flugoh - Ghatanothoa Khe-ly Yaddith - Go
Tsathoggua Voormithadreth Yha-Jal Gha-bal
Yeah

Tresspassing the threshold, across the door,
Punishment come...

Tsa - thoggua - waits in the underworld,
The sleeper of N´kai - in all his glory... Come!

Since - my - first - vi - sit - I - live - te - rrified
In - night - mares - where - I - crawl - through - deep
Fro - zen - tu-nnels - ne - ver - seen - before
While - e - vil - eyes - watch - my - martyr - dome

No remorse in their hearts
No remorse in my heart

No remorse... But I lie and I cheat, just looking for me
No remorse... I sold my soul
