Jerome Dunn One of the best albums I have stumbled upon while browsing tags on this site. A perfect blend of hard hitting metal with psychedelic rock, and lyrics that will have you drifting through the ether for eternity. Favorite track: Strong Tongue.

about

Despite the band’s uncanny ability to instantly transport the listener to ground zero of classic metal’s glory years, this is no nostalgia act, no group of mere historians simply preserving a style of music in a droplet of amber like an errant bit of dinosaur plasma; this is vital, original heavy rock, inspired and informed by the very best of the genre’s bombastic history. It’s all here, fused by force in the aural assault of Space Metal, and captured precisely the way the Elder Gods intended: slammed onto two-inch magnetic tape with a vengeance - in a vintage 1970s analog recording studio no less. Why does this album sound like the real thing? Because it IS the real thing.

Track Name: Wing of the Praetor
Wing of The Praetor

On a twist - we exist - a blessing to the overlord
In a line - we define - a word not spoken in an endless time

Take a world - make a mist - firma for the wealthy
Plant a sign - sun will shine - third time orbit winds go cut the cord

Ride Ride Ride
On the wing of the Praetor
Ride Ride Ride
The bones of the holy man

Send a word - through the hole - worm makes it happen
Wait a while - receive the file - words of the dead from a billion miles

Ride Ride Ride
On the wing of the Praetor
Ride Ride Ride
The bones of the holy man
Track Name: The Millipede
The Millipede

1000 legs, strength untold
a single heart, growing old
a carapace of majesty
entomophobe begone; stand; behold

Hear the cries
don't defy
set him free
the millipede!

break the chain
take the rein
aphids flee
the millipede!

I sees the star, the master's home
so far away, the eco-dome
humble servant, strength inside
i call my master - now you know

Hear the cries
don't defy
set him free
the millipede

to the sky
don't ask why
take the wing
the millipede!

gonopods - defy the odds - evolve - now a mystery
endless sands - poisoned glands - evolve to become history
segments divided
moult in hiding
a thousand stings
a thousand wings

To the cloud
keep the vow
hardened skin
the millipede!

the time is now
to eat ant cow
upon his shins
the millipede

now spawning fins
the millipede
Track Name: Asphyxiation
Asphyxiation

jupiter
across
computer screen
slingshot
take me away
new dimensionality

taurus
nebula
says to me
why are you?
there is no answering

why did you take
my spacesuit away
i hide my face
in my hands I decay
asphixiation...
cold
death taking hold

gravity
only theory
now tested now told
toss aside
your theory in the black hole

destiny
you can call it that
talk to yourself
cause the world is flat

why did you take
my spacesuit away
i hide my face
in my hands I decay
asphixiation...
cold
death taking hold
Track Name: Strong Tongue
Strong Tongue

Fallout in a fistful of whiskey
I'm out of my mind
Allotment of chemicals
You seek and I find

Mist covers my lily pad
Wistful memory of time gone wrong
Flowing down my chemical chamber
Reptile writes my song

No button!
No cord!

Strong tongue on the third moon of Platus
Disaster strikes and all is lost!

Hold on to a fistful of bullets
Help me load my mind
Deep down in a well of awareness
Enlightened by the sign

Stroll into a room full of elephants
trunks ready for lines so long
Bathroom is a maze for my matter
Reptile writes my song

Roast mutton!
Black Lord!

Strong tongue on the third moon of Platus
Disaster strikes and all is lost!

Woke up in a room full of anthills
They crawl up my mind
Bites cover my sixtieth brain stem
Queen starts to unwind

Drones walk in formation
tunnel deep down in the depth of my ego
Language escapes me
I hold the hand of my ant friend and we go

Proglutten!
Glastord!

Strong tongue on the third moon of Platus
Disaster strikes and all is lost!
Track Name: Exodus
Exodus

Once, long ago, we had
a vision - and it was sad

sad like the wings of song
it took so long...

Spawned in hand, a star
growing, it seemed so far

far it seemed till yesterday
we turned away...

Touch this side for the last time
slowly, we cross the line
winds cold for one more day
We're taught to pray

Light, Light, Light, Light
Light burns the hands of the innocent
Night, Night, Night, Night
Night turns cold
Fight, Fight,

Fight for a handful of sand in the exodus
Lied to, undermined, controlled

Cower in the sight of a flower
Holding onto dreams that shower

Life and death combined
Conception intertwined
Power it was born without love
Hold on - we dream of
an end, mortality,
look at me, finality, bow!


Light, Light, Light, Light
Light burns the hands of the innocent
Night, Night, Night, Night
Night turns cold
Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight
Fight for a handful of sand in the exodus
Lied to, undermined and controlled

Cower in the sight of a flower
Hold onto dreams that shower

Life and death combined
Conception intertwined
Power born without love
Holding on - we dream of
an end, mortality,
look at me, finality, bow!

Once, long ago, we had
a vision - and it was sad
sad like the wings of song
We were wrong...
Track Name: Frozen Eye
The Frozen Eye

Bracing for winter
Blood in the trees

Thaw by the atom
Now it is free

Readings begin to place more concrete importance on the findings
Intelligence, cold - uncompromised by emotion - define blindness

The signal is given - billions are driven from their minds in the blink of his eye
Single in conciousness - blessed to be alive I suppose I should lay down and die

It's the frozen eye
It's the frozen eye
Don't ask why the eye envelops the sky
It's the frozen eye
It's the frozen eye
Don't ask why the eye envelops the sky

What did he tell you?
What do you see?

It said Love is a concept
that is strange to me

Feelings begin when dark matter is thinned by the hybrid
The being that burned four thousand years of the learn-ed words are lies yeah

The signal is given - billions are driven from their minds in the blink of his eye
Single in conciousness - blessed to be alive I suppose I should lay down and die

It's the frozen eye
It's the frozen eye
Don't ask why the eye envelops the sky
It's the frozen eye
It's the frozen eye
Don't ask why the eye envelops the sky

They had a world
You know it
Rapture is hurled
below it
They learned to fly
away that night
through a hole in fabric of time
space and light

cries of the souls
were heard that day
existence, gone
with gravity
depravity was made cold that night
when the frozen eye took form and was given sight

it's the frozen eye
the frozen eye
the frozen eye
the frozen eye

Bracing for winter
Blood in the trees

Thaw by the atom
Now it is free

The sins of all those whose beliefs were imposed now divining
On poles in the valley of our dismembered woes now aligning
Track Name: Warrior From The Future
Warrior from the Future

shaved to pillage eleven homeless suns
pray I kill you with a mercy killing gun
wake up in the morning with a nanotube hanging wondering where it came from
lake of bodies every day's the same!

warrior from the future
touch my hand feel the power there
warrior from the future
hey hey hey hey

slaves and babies taken to the wall
waves come crashing when the starships start to fall
wake up in the morning with a tachyon singing wondering where it came from
saved by the message sent to me it's from

warrior from the future
touched his hand felt the power there
warrior from the future
hey hey hey hey

does everyone remember
a morning in december
a time of day when the suns don't shine
would everyone say
a victim of the ray
a sorry persona from the future time
would anyone wonder
would anyone cry
would anyone line up to watch you die
would everyone climb
through the tachyon tunnel
running away from the lives and the lie?

warrior from the future
touch my hand feel the power there
warrior from the future
hey hey hey hey
Track Name: Witness to the Witch
Witness to the Witch

Wife - would not die
Life - live a lie
No eyes no eyes no eyes for you to see through
sliced like flesh is the truth

I saw the flood
crash today
I saw willingness
to wash away
everything
I was a witness to the witch
forevermore

Child - after child
Wild - was it you?
No lies no lies no lies could suffice
Ice formed then we knew

I saw the flood
crash today
I saw willingness
to wash away
everything
I was a witness to the witch
forevermore

(Fast part)
Blood - black!
Path - track
Feed back now burning hell
Heed the fire of the witches spell

On and on - on and on
Crying man on the burning lawn

Made to raise 3 babies in a coven unholy
Save everything just to know it was sold - yeah
Paid a viper - made me write that I loved her
Never never never told you never sign the letter



I saw the flood
crash today
I saw willingness
to wash away
everything
I was a witness to the witch
forevermore
Track Name: Terra Cat
Terra Cat

fast like a witch with a terra cat
cold like the hole of the blood bat
wild like fire in the lava field
rest now bitch gonna fit you with a plasma shield

weasel cryin' in the dust storm
broken wires on a rust farm
drydock, years now a 10 second lifetime
shocked by a corpse when I notice that it was mine

sold in the hall of the dung rats
slave to the blade wieldin' cyber-sats
cloaked by the sword of Katalifarinosteles
take my word - it's her - now you have to plant the seed

fire
burns higher
yearns for light
when the bite is acquired

fire
takes desire
foldin' time gettin' high

took the graft from the terra cat
fused with the shaft of the phalla-gnat
stem cell baby from the womb of the all-source
naked, cold, mad, raving, crazy from the life force

fire
burns higher
yearns for light
when the bite is acquired

fire
takes desire
foldin' time gettin' high
Track Name: Uranus
uranus
came to us
in a dream
now
famously
singing
his only song
he trained us
in the ways of the planets
let us hit
on his cosmic bong
