Matthew Rukgaber If you are missing new doses of golden age (Man's Ruin) Alabama Thunderpussy, then this is for you. I'm not always a fan of burly-man shouting vocals, but this vocalist clearly has the potential to go from Neil Fallon on Pure Rock Fury to NF on Psychic Warfare. Can't wait to see the progression on a full-length. Favorite track: Against The Rain.

Colin M. Oak II sees the band take a step forward, with the glorious roars they call vocals, the heavy riffs, and pounding rhythm section back in full force. Favorite track: Smoke.

Bucky Superb vocal howls combine with annihilating fuzzed out riffs and psychedelic atmosphere. The melody and groove are breathtaking and the hooks are massive. For fans of all things heavy, fuzzy, groovy, and loud. Favorite track: A Bridge Too Far.

Grégoire Guery If you liked Oak's first EP (and there's NO reason why you wouldn't), you're gonna love the second one as well. The vocals are still awesome, and the songwriting feels even better. Even the artwork got a sweet improvement. Good stuff! Favorite track: A Bridge Too Far.

Track Name: Mirage
I look around my soul
I see there's nothing theirs
I feel alone in this
What the hell's this acid reign
No way out, no way in
I know there's something back to test

Feeling like its in my soul,
Feeling like I can't let go
Feeling like there's nothing real
Feeling like we can't go on, this whole thing

You tried to let me down
You tried to feel yourself
Look around you see the whole world
Look around there's nothing left for me

Feeling like its in my soul,
Feeling like I can't let go
Feeling like there's nothing real
Feeling like we can't go on, this whole thing

Can we rise up once again,
Beat back this fucking disease
Can I feel myself again
I just want to be free
Can we rise up once again
Beat back this fucking disease

I said hold me now hang on to me
I said hold me now hang on to me
I said hold me now I'll give you the truth

I said hold me now I'll give you the truth
I said hold me now I'll tell you the truth

I said hold me now hang on to me...
Track Name: Against The Rain
So now you turn to me you, you look right it to me and you see it all
I know the sun will rise, I know that this is our way
I know this feeling now, I know that something kept falling apart again
These things are meant to be, you fit so cleverly with me
Lets go...

Well I look into you eyes now
There ain't no place to hide now
Well I feel it start to rain
And I know you feel the same

Well I look into my soul, I see what's been going wrong for so very long
I changed my life to be the man I want to be, its all been Against the Rain
I feel together now, I hold you in my arms again and again
I love to love you now, I know its something that's here to stay...

Well I look into you eyes now
There ain't no place to hide now
Well I feel it start to rain
Well I know I feel again..

Well I look into you eyes now
There ain't no place to hide now
Well I know this feeling again
Coz I know you feel the same...

I feel again
I feel again
I feel the truth
I feel again....
Track Name: A Bridge Too Far
Its so cold...

See those clouds, the black ones too
The sun has left us now its all gone
Why its always go wrong
I can't do me wrong

I look around the whole town
I see faces grey and long
I see sunshine rays, and there gone

I look around this whole land
I see pain and disgrace

Oh why
I say why
Let it go!!

You're coming to me now
You'll see a free man now
Walk over to me now
You think I'm something to mess with
Well think again

Oh why
I say why

A bridge too far that's all it was
A bridge too far that's all it was
I give my love to you
I give my love only to you

Can you feel it
Can you feel this
Can you feel it

Love fills my heart
Rage fills my heart
The dark fills my eyes

Why
Oh Why

I feel the light in your head
I feel this coming again
I feel the rage in you
I feel coming again

Cut you down
Cut me down
Cut me down

I see the light in your head
I see the fire in you
Ain't nothing left for us now
Ain't nothing left to do
Track Name: Smoke
I say but hey ho my girl what you do to me
I say but hey ho my girl you coming to me cant you see what the hell we are singing

I said why should we go fight

I say but hey ho my world what you do to me
I said but hay ho my world we're coming for you can't you se what hell we are singing

I said why should we go fight

Don't smoke your life away
Its true what I saying

Don't smoke your life away
Its true what I saying

Don't smoke your life away
Listen what I say

Why should we go out today and fight today
Why should we go out and fight your wars away...
