Eli Some mighty fine music for purging or any other sort of annihilation. The riff featured in Lay The Earth to Rest (1:00-end) is the best riff Bolt Thrower never wrote making that song one of the sexiest things I've heard in awhile but in no way is that the only strong point of the demo, The breakneck speed of Deterrence and Retribution will keep your head rocking. The downright dirty riff in Trail by Combat is enough to make even the seasoned tremble in their combat boots. Favorite track: Lay The Earth To Rest.

Wallow Within Evil mix of everything really dark and dirty in Metal- and Core- business. I've been living with this record already for roughly a year now and it's still playing regularly up and down. I hope for a full length soon, so get your asses to work guys. Favorite track: Deterrence And Retribution.

Track Name: Lay The Earth To Rest
Take life as the blade
Become the noose in wait
The innocent and the damned
Judged fit to bleed the same
We are the reaping wrath
Cold as the hangman's laugh
Advance the clan of death ever on toward victory

On and on consumed in savagery
The petty laws of man will cease to be
Onward march toward your butchery
Loose the last gasp of your species
Bleed, blast, burn to desecrate and turn
The face of this world to ash and rot

A new era will rise in the wake of sacrifice

We sow with blood
We reap with fire
We piss upon this planet
Groveling at our feet
Track Name: Deterrence And Retribution
Beckoned by the hand of Death
Unaware, unannounced, unobserved
A shadow amongst the living stalks
Terror takes the sky

Touched in every tongue
In every function: execution
A payload forces Heaven's hand
There's nowhere to hide when God is blind
Singing psalms of fuel and fire
What resides beneath the knife must die
In the rubble what remains?
What but hatred sprouts from graves?
Blind god, behold begotten son:
Tyranny of annihilation

Bombast from the first to last bomb blast
Killing and reason were wed in the past
A parting gesture from the hand of Death
Gone and forgotten may they rest
A stalking presence amidst the living
On a quest to blind the world

Eternally, violently, eradication
Eternity, enmity, embrace humanity
Once undone, what is won, murder and massacre
In the end, in revenge, retribution
Track Name: Trial By Combat
Beneath blackened skies a silence settles
Oppressive stench of burning fuel and fear
Alongside bodies strewn lay takes in ruin
This place where warriors come to die
No longer waiting the living stir beneath the dead

Two men yet live in this abattoir
To rise from the cradle of war
In a hole with a club and above with a bayonet
They mean to kill and kill they will
Blow follows blow and the wounds slowly mount
A mind of murder encounters no doubt:
A hero will rise from the slaughter of meeker men

Relentless, savage, their conflict continues
Mouths well with iron and sand sticks with blood
As the sun goes black from above
The world is ablaze
And feed the fire with your lives
The sky rains down the barren soil
And the earth heaves as it is cleft
Shrapnel and debris usurp the scenery
Beneath the great fist of conflict

The field is swept of the squabbling and feebleness
And the sky is black as silence settles
Amongst the dead there is not fear
