Follow the principal directive No mercy shown for those left alive Burn their dead, repair our fallen, Give them no chance to run,no chance to hide To give them a tombstone Is a luxury we won't afford Let this bloodied landscape Turn to another barren memorial of war An unwritten epitaph would read Here rest the ones who once drew breath Refused to give up their convictions Knowing that to stay true is the only way In death you'll know you were alive We will see the fall of man Never to rise again Praise our maker and Your prophet of self-demise Man-made machine design Former tool they once thought Blind hear our battle chant The engines' hiss spells your end This is to be your end No more the earth will breathe
2.
One shot, one kill The savory of your flesh to liberate my will Thriving on the wreckage of the evil I have brought you once again And roam the endless plain To never look back again Release me from the strain And show me the trail Fear runs through my veins as I bear the mark of Cain It cuts me to the bone. I feel the bloody scorn. Never To never repent again!
3.
The ears above remember your every word A sovereign vow is never fully true Tools to plant the seed of doubt, What’s a victim when black and white turn grey? The truth is here Hollow judgements Parallel lines follow one another Truth and lie, duality, disorder Sightless we are bound not to discover Counting the days on the back of my mind As I forget my dreams My brain forgets being nothing But a game of smoke and mirrors Preaching hate Wrath and disorder The minds of our youngs, against one another

As resonance, your endless screams vibrate As resonance, immense agony isn't enough As resonance, when all your limbs migrate As resonance, levitating through dust Echoes of dispair invade my being Thoughts of life and words of death, disagreeing Burning bridges of flesh and bone, To free the misery of existence in me Energy waves pushing me towards the end Heavy discharges of terror and shame Submitting the weak to a highest will Like insects work in their name
5.
To undergo the ordeal of life Small stones should be suffice Then you’ll carry the weight of worlds And face the soaring waters I reach, the infinity unknown Wash away this land of sorrow For their mistakes I must atone To turn away and leave on morrow Soaring waters, Floating patterns And then I’ll shine through broken glass Bursting into flames in your inner mass The same song keeps playing While I face the soaring waters Rising tides in crumbling soil A life lived in turmoil We now reap what we sow Before the soaring waters we now bow Soaring waters, Floating patterns Crushing bones like insects Vanished in instants A new era is brought upon us The soaring waters, come!

Banished from this realm I speak in flaming tongues Filthy words of hate A venom of my own For dust thou art And to dust thou shalt return I seek...wonders once promised Blurred by a multitude of sins Brought to life by numerous beings To cleanse the hardest flaws Cleanse to purify Our minds are free from restraints To dignify Rectify our existence Cleanse to purify To pacify, to dignify I burn in visions of demise Craving for the sacrifice Blasting our ways Through hardest endeavours Our minds set ablaze See now or never!

Strained and drained Strive to find a better word The truth is damned Burning off for feeling cold Take me! Sentience Defiance To feel To be felt No time to waste No sense of taste Is this life a race? In boxes we are encased Obnoxious, unpleasant we see Day after day we're fully scanned Unaware of the powers that be Shall we ever find the key? No darkness without light No hope without dispair Absence of fear means apathy A last breath for me to share Salvation is not a purpose I cannot feel anymore Take me!

The current state of Humanity Is leading to insanity Destroying just for pleasure and profit We are carving our own coffin Open your eyes I am the light of demise Sync your mind with mine And let's think for a while This pain, this noxious reflection Set inside the bottom of your fate Ready to explode, set to desecrate! Birds falling from the sky Whales dying in the oceans Earth covered in black Fire burned emotions Open your eyes I am the light of demise The noxious reflection Flawless and infectious "Take more than what you can give" Has been the slogan for decades. Human race is not superior, Human race is a disgrace. I am the light of demise Take whatever you need to survive I am the light you’ve created Till there is nothing left to be taken

about

"Obnoxious" is the fourth release, and the second full length album, by the death metal band Colosso.
The album shows a more experimental, dissonant and heavy side of Colosso, leaving behind the more groovy side shown on the two previous EPs.

Recorded at Stone Sound Studio (Portugal), mixed by Max Tomé (also guitar player on the band) and mastered by Aaron Smith (Jeff Loomis, 7 Horns 7 Eyes), "Obnoxious"' sound is more aggressive and "boomy" than the first album "Abrasive Peace".

Lyric-wise, the album focus on the extreme void of society ("Obnoxious"), a black hole created by ego, profit and chaos.

– “a monstrous, maverick spirit from Colosso” – Metal Hammer (UK)

– “suffocatingly huge death metal with a subtle technical/experimental twist” – Decibel Magazine (US)

– “ferocity is very much a leading ingredient” – No Clean Singing (US)

– “one of those hidden gems” – The Metal Observer (Canada) 8.5/10

– “there is a certain freshness to their sound.” – Metal Trenches (US)

– “superb, and highly recommended.” – The Killchain (UK)

– “an absolute recommendation” – Reaperzine (Germany) 9/10

– “grows with each listen” – Metalhead.it (Italy) 8/10

– “a powerful, ultra-brute Death Metal” – Franconia Metallum (Germany) 8/10
