snicketbaul This record is a fantastic, technical journey. It's so unique for its genre and every listen is beneficial as you discover something new each time. Favorite track: Lights Out.

John Car Bomb is compared to Meshuggah too often, probably as a result of everyone trying to define their sound. To me, the difference between the two is Car Bomb's ability to innovate. They're known for a repertoire of unique guitar screeches and dive-bombs, and there's a new library of them on every album. Meta is no exception -- it's the latest vehicle for their brutal, genre-subverting creativity. Hoffman kills it on this album especially. Favorite track: Lights Out.

MyNameIsRedundant Despite tech death being a sub-genre, no band screams TECH like car bomb
This was all I could ever want from a car bomb record and more with some of Elliots' best work. Favorite track: Gratitude.

1.
Dark smiles saying nothing The warpath, straight and lonely Both sides feel the cold front closing in Reveal the frozen pieces of earth Can’t hear the hidden sounds from its closed mouth No more secret truths said into the soundproof walls They sing we’re restored to life From the dust of this planet you sing Stand up and sing Ashes in ears There’s no way home Just sing this song They sing we’re restored to life Pull the rusting nails from these walls Peel off your broken nails Wake wake up the sun Just take it all back
2.
Those eyes will drain into the skull Just pull the plug on things you want no one to know Secrets within secrets Although consequences haven’t stopped the violent faces occupying metastasis Secrets within secrets within secrets within secrets Locked box hidden inside these walls But they know your blindside So polite, thank them for your rebirth Your birth Your rebirth Stay down cause you can not get up from above Stay down cause you lost all the things that you love Stay down cause its secrets within secrets within secrets within secrets within secrets Locked box hidden inside these walls Your blindside compassion won't save you from us Take this day and take apart the insides of your hope Take this day and realise It’s all lies Frozen on your lips Allow yourself this retreat after your rebirth

Nonagon 03:15
Disable consequence, both sides Enable convergence inside Triangles pointing to the top Rectangles four corners then stop Closing all the shapes you see Riding them eternally Calculate the cost Floating on an endless string Tied behind the angel's wings Calculate Sum up the edge of this nonsense Wait Don't stop the aftermath First target all those who forget Procrastinate Time will go slow Wait but don’t stop the aftermath Next target all those who pretend Instantiate the next vision The rectangles Isolation to form the edge Wait Stop the aftermath Next target all those who divide Degenerate the vertex Pierce through the aftermath Then target all those who deflect Illuminate Parallel planes Aggregate dimensions to the vertex of the prism

Gratitude 04:22
Undo the blood you’re tied to That noose seeks a truce Horror sleeps without you Wake up in a tomb Now is all you feel Why you're so anxious The precious decline to see this out Now is all your feel Now tearing yourself apart Just one more thing Solitude, it's so static Your white lies and black magic But if this ends your life be grateful Just put yourself aside Reconstruct your faith in another life Reconstruct your past Put yourself aside Reconstruct life’s war Fade away along the way Crawl away alone

Show the way Point to nothing Show the way Profit from loss Time is space Tick tick ticking Slow decay Ascend across Love percolates Fill up the cup or pour out the shame The candlelight burns the room we use for light to ash and dust Clone the same light the flame Prove that this sham will save me Heal the thirst of knowledge Turn a blind eye forward Good things come to those who wait Always over compensate Watching the blood percolate Hide the keys within their faith Hide within the shadow Brainwashed into who you trust Your lungs filled with ash and dust Take that final breath Brainwashed to in who you trust Hide within the shadow Secular forbidden thoughts Put them underground Smother them from life Always unforgiven Enslave all the living Your lungs filled with ash and dust Put them underground Smother them from life Good things come to those who wait Constant sleep Watch it collapse Watch shit collapse

Boxed unsettled The flying metals Race through the sky Identify See through the glass eye Saying goodbye in the oppressor Eyes compress the state of unrest The size too much for them to address in the stark light from the stars In the dark light in your eyes. Go on the propofol Go on the sleeping lamb Say nothing foreign or too rash Stand aside Let this ride To the grave Find yourself asleep on the ground Go on to your sentinel Go to your mother’s womb Coast Stand aside Let this ride To the grave Spend to save End, the end of the days End, the end of the days To the grave Find yourself asleep on the ground Sacred constitution Give this life the solution Worship to the system What does it cost Your light The light burns out Beloved suicide Beloved death Boxed unsettled The flying metals Falling of like dying pedals Identify See through the glass eye Saying goodbye in the oppressor The end of the days To the grave Found yourself asleep on the ground

Black Blood 04:18
The web that makes the role of the slave encases you The last worker of this charade Ashamed and blamed From anger to hopelessness That pulls your will Undress the blood Drowning in the black blood Your attitude enslaves you in traps that steal your ambitions Your solitude encases you in webs You are the prisoner Force open the locks of your shameless desire Put both your feet inside the fire Let go of this continuous deploy Set it free And breath
8.
Sets 04:10
Face all the rapid pulsed captives Inject them poison for mass consumption Avoid litigation by torturing sets All deleted sets Erase their eyes Leave them eyeless Sets Break it open Insidious liquid courses through veins Visionary field collapses Blackness engulfs the sound of silence Blind to the horrors around Eternity lasts forever Look into its eyeless crying Touch its death mask Leave them all alone inside this holocaust Leave them eyeless Sets break it open
9.
Cenotaph 05:07
Stop the flood of praise No one forgives In the mouth your eyes Reverse the spin Cenotaph egg shells Stop the flood of pain Climbing through the sand and crowding stares Soft words splash beneath whispered wings of your mind Cry into your arm sleeve Open up Run into this grave Kill the light seeping inward through sensitive eyes All empty graves nothing there to save Wide umbrellas cover cloudless comforts Soft words splash beneath whispered wings of your mind wants yourself to heal Stuck sounds sway above screaming wings Out of your mind All it wants is to cut Cut it all cut it all down beside the lake Bet it all on the shovel in your garden Make sure you bury deep Hide the sun Lay your head down the ground the cemetery Cut it all cut it all down

Lights Out 04:17
Sing for today what remains of the song Say what you mean The past rewinds itself into the void Just avoid the cost Sanitize their hopeless eyes in dim light leaking through the cracks sealed in their face Contemplate the animals you’ve become So welcoming to all this blood Keep yourself straight on the path Take your mind from the past Lights out and carry on Straight on course Back home Straight on Lights out carry on straight on Don't look back Sing for today what remains of the sunrise Force your will to carry on Make your way embrace the sunrise
11.
Infinite Sun 05:39
Can not divide the wings that pull you apart Infinite flight to the nothing past The future is not to last Take off from planes of gold Always look up Descend to the bracket of the nothing They took out their hearts and loved them all night They all flew off from the things that they took from you Guided to the finite promise that they ignite in flames Take it all then just go fuck off Fly They took out their hearts which bled out all night They took out their hearts and fucked them all night Burn off their wings and make them pay the price of pain The way they made you crawl and cry to your own infinite sun Take back the sum of the divide Zero Fly They took out their hearts and fucked them all night Pull of their wings and fly Take it back
