Justin Thiele As a dark electronic musician myself who’s very picky about sound and structure I was overwhelmingly happy to have stumbled upon Offerings to Odin. Not only is this a well crafted album, it’s obvious that lots of time and thought, and heart goes into this. Absolutely refreshing and highly recommended!

Rise 03:39
We wage war Not with swords and shields but with words and ideals Demand more Of yourself and climb leave the pettiness behind The battlefield Is soaked with blood but we march on til the victory's been won Do not yield Your cause is just and true There is no greater god than you Rise Rise Your destiny is for you to Decide Decide The path you take to break on through Hone your sword As iron sharpens iron forge your mind deep in the fire Onward and toward Raise a glass in celebration those who fight in isolation Seek your truth Sever from and cast aside what your soul cannot abide Fight nail and tooth For what you're meant to be you have a greater destiny Rise Rise Your destiny is for you to Decide Decide The path you take to break on through Thrive Thrive On bone flesh and sinew Alive Alive A greater thing is here for you!

Death Throes 04:31
Equilibrium can no longer continue Dark energy that I must now distribute I'm seething inside myself from the taste of things to come The most delicious poison on the tip of my tongue I feel my flesh breaking apart at the seams Sinews snap, bones grind, my blood flows out in streams Writhing around inside of my skin Destroying the center for something bigger to come in Wrenched from my state of satisfaction Insatiable hunger keeps gaining traction There is no transformation without a little pain Make ready my sacrifice so that I can reap the gains

Flood 04:24
4.
They came to me with chains of iron My power evident from the start To contain me was their desire I flexed my muscles and tore it apart They came to me once more with Dromi Around my body I let it be wrapped They laid the challenge and glory before me Dug in my paws and Dromi snapped The crafty dwarves they thought of a plan To make a fetter from impossible things To control the beast called man Create a chain from golden rings Drugged (by pharmacology) Laden (down with policy) Wrapped (up in theology) Boxed (in ideology) Bound (by economy) Tied (to technology) Infinite slavery, never to be set free These mind forged manacles weigh us down fettered by chains we cannot see In a moneyed world we are tightly bound If we're all in debt how can we be free?

Dread 03:46
As you go to sleep tonight Try not to think of the things that bite Those fears that ensnare your mind And cause sanity to unwind This world is sick beyond belief Our time to affect change is brief You can't and so you start to cry Then watch as life passes you by The sweat that beads upon your head Is from a deep feeling of dread We're all compliant in this lie You know and yet you still deny Push down what you feel inside The truth you're desperate to hide That life isn't remotely fair In hell, I will see you there

The weight presses in Through your precious skin And works it's way down The snares all around This disfigured face Usurps your place With the flick of a switch it comes crumbling to bits Feel yourself torn Tormented by scorn And deep inside something is born Gift of the flies Reclaim the broken flesh Remnants of lies Throughout the world enmeshed Hope is a crutch You're better off without Trapped in the clutch Of victimhood devout The final swing Paralyzing sting Down for the count when up comes the shout Break your chain Negative gain Familiar tune but a brand new refrain
8.
Listen in reverence to the beating of the drums The clanging of steel on steel And the crumbling of concrete This world is being torn apart Piece by piece Bit by bit The sonorous melody of malady This derelict symphony flows over me Washes me in aural severity Twist of metal and scrape of stone Snap of wood and smash of bone Rejoice Crumbling Cracking Crashing and crawling Rejoice in the utter destruction that is all around inescapable and ever present

Mad As Hell 04:36
I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore Degraded Forced down to our knees like a two bit whore Frustrated To the point of not giving a fuck anymore We know our food is unfit to eat We know our air is unfit to breathe And yet we sit and watch TV And hope to die peacefully It lies decrepit Bloated and fetid Dried up and used Harshly abused Everything backward And manufactured We waste away Locked in this cage Force fed on nothing And told we're obscene For our reaction To this infraction I've had it up to here I will not live in fear Grab my battle-axe, and fight back! Dictated What we think feel and see by the forces of hegemony So faded Our collective memory of how life used to be For fear of ridicule we think the same What once was beautiful is now so plain Myriad of colors have turned to grey As we march on, towards our graves
