Michael F. Outstanding dark crust that is right up there with standard-bearers TRAGEDY, SODIUM skirt the metal fray, but don't commit. The melodies and execution in a word, crush. New album is superb as well, though in native tongue, but nonetheless captivating. A must for any self-respecting crust fan. Contrary to all the medical bullshit, I cannot get enough SODIUM... Favorite track: Upon The Ruins.

Track Name: One Last Breath
ONE LAST LOOK IN THESE EYES,
BEFORE THEY WENT CLOSING FOREVER
SHUTTERED TO THIS GODAWFUL WORLD.
ONE LAST BREATH TO SHOW THAT IT´S OVER,
THAT EVERYTHING HERE WAS JUST TO COLD.

NOTHING YOU SAID, EVER CAME TRUE!
THAT EVERYTHING WILL TURN INTO GOOD!

HOW COULD I SEE THROUGH THIS DUST OF DESTRUCTION?
HOW COULD I SEE THE COMFORT OF LIFE?
EVERYONE TALKS IN THE SAME FUCKING LANGUAGE EVERYDAY.

AN ACCENT I CAN´T UNDERSTAND!
AND I REFUSE TO SPEAK AT ALL!

NO ONE CAN KEEP ME IN THIS WORLD OF SOLITUDE.
NO ONE CAN SAY NOW THAT EVERYTHING WOULD AMEND.
NO FUCKING ONE CAN CRY ABOUT THIS DYING MYSELF.
TO LEAVE YOU IS MY LAST DECISION, GOOD-BYE!
Track Name: Upon The Ruins
SINCE THE VANE CHANGED IT´S TURN
AND THE FEELINGS IN THIS HOUSE,
TURNED AGAINST ME TO CARRY ME OUT,
I´M ON THE JOURNEY THROUGH THE COLD.

I`M GONNA LEAVE! I`M GONNA LEAVE!
I`M GONNA LEAVE! EVERYTHING BEHIND!

MY HEART STILL LONGS FOR WARMTH,
BUT LOVE HAS CHANGED, IT´S VAIN.
THE ONLY THING THAT´S LEFT TODAY,
IS THE FROZEN PATH IN FRONT OF ME.

EVERYTHING´S GONE WHITE,
WINTER CAST OUT ALL THE LIFE.
FEELS LIKE I´M PART OF IT NOW,
MY CHEST COLD, MY FISTS ARE BALED.

HEADING TO THAT OLD BARRACKS BY THE SEA.
I`VE BEEN THERE ONCE BEFORE.
POSSIBLY NO BAD IDEA, JUST TO FADE AWAY,
OR HAS LIFE STILL SOMETHING TO OFFER?
AFTER ALL THIS, NOT FOR ME!
I`M GOING TO SLEEP.
Track Name: Healed Face
WATCH ME BLEED. EXPECTANT, MY OWN REFLECTION STARES AT ME.
IT TOOK YEARS TILL I SENSED IT´S JUST A FAKE.
IT´S JUST A FAKE EFFIGY OF MYSELF
´CAUSE IT WAS FASTER THAN MY MIND COULD RECLAIM.
SHALLOW WAS THE DRAWER. PAINT MYSELF WITH GLITTER EYES,
BUT STILL HE HURTS ME. IN MY MEMORIES. INSIDE.
INSIDE THE HEALED FACE. PAIN. LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY.
EVERY NIGHT I SEE THE BLOOD ON MY LEGS.
HE MADE A WOMAN OUT OF ME. UNWANTED.
THE WORDS HE WHISPERED, THEY SCREAM IN MY HEAD.
EVERY NIGHT: DISGUST, PAIN AND HATE.

AND I´M ASKING INTO NOTHING:
CAN I EVER FEEL AGAIN?
TIME, WHY DON´T YOU GO BY.
TO HEAL ALL OF MY WOUNDS?
OR IS THIS JUST AN EMPTY PROMISE?
DO THE DEEPEST WOUNDS REMAIN?
Track Name: Deliverance, Part One
AT NIGHT HE KNEED BY A FLICKERING LIGHT
PRAYING TO HIS GOD, HE´D BEEN DOING IT EVER SINCE
"DEAR GOD,
I KNOW I ASKED A LOT
BUT THIS DOESN´T EVEN IT.
MY BEGGINGS ARE HONEST.
RELEASE ME! MY SINS! MY DREADFUL SINS!"
HE´S SCREAMING, HE´S CRYING HIS LONESOME PRAYER
AGAIN AND AGAIN "FORGIVE ME, ALMIGHTY!"
AND AS HE LOWERED HIS VOICE, HIS FACE FULL OF REMORSEFUL TEARS
HE SENSED A NOTION HE HAS NEVER DARED TO ADMIT
A NOTION THAT MADE HIM RETHINK WHOLE LIFE
AND ALL THE TALES HE HAD BEEN FOLLOWING.

"WHERE ARE YOU TO HELP ME, OMNIPRESENT?"
"WHERE ARE YOU TO HELP ME, OMNIPRESENT?"
NO HINT, NO GUISE, NO SOUND, NO SENSE...
"WHERE ARE YOU TO HELP ME, OMNIPRESENT?"
Track Name: Deliverance, Part Two
HE TOUCHED HIS CROSS SWINGING ON HIS CHEST,
HE FELT IT HURTING, FURY OVERWHELMS HIM.
HE BROKE THE STRING THAT WAS ROUND HIS NECK
AND TOSSED IT AGAINST THE WOODEN WALL.
THEN HE STOOD UP, TOOK A CANDLE LIGHT,
THREW IT AROUND AND FELT HIS BODY PULSE, SO ALIVE.
THE LOUSY MATTRESS CAUGHT FIRE
AND BY JESUS FUCKING CHRIST THE CROSS ABOVE ALL THE SAME.
HE RAN OUTSIDE WITH SMOKY LUNGS AND YELLED, SO EVERYONE COULD HEAR:

"I´M FREE, I`M FREE"
WHOLE LIFE MADE HIM AWED,
BUT THEN THE BURDEN FELL FROM HIS SOUL.
"I BELIEVE IN MYSELF!"
