about

Three years, 5 mixes, 3 different masterings, blood, sweat, tears, two blown EL34's and this is the outcome. Our new album features songs that were written right after 26 mean and heavy right up until 3 days before entering the studio. It even has the first song RIFFLORD ever wrote but never recorded "the riffman cometh"! Crank this one LOUD.

Track Name: 7
seven daughters, seven sons, seven omens, under seven suns
seven acres, seven sheep, while seven preachers slowly weep
cremation days a coming
cremation days a coming
seven prayers, seven plagues, we’ve been fasting for seven days
seven sinners, seven saints, seven children lay in early graves
cremation days a coming
cremation days a coming
Track Name: Dead Flower Child
i inhale the smoke as the old man spoke at the rising sun
just sit right there and let me tell you how this all begun
when the levee breaks watch the righteous pray and the wicked run
just sit right there and let me tell you exactly what i've done
i cursed this whole town and all those in it
the heathens are hexed now, from all their sinning
when the levee breaks watch the righteous pray and the wicked run
won’t you sit right there and let me tell you exactly what i've done
you're having a good time baby, but that won’t last
your mind is full of fear, from living to fast
go on and enjoy yourself, for it won’t be long
til' all your wicked ways will be long gone
i curse this whole town and all those in it
the heathens are hexed now, from all their sinning
when the levee breaks watch the righteous pray and the wicked run
just sit right there and let me tell exactly what i've done
Track Name: The Other Side
charlatans of the other side
false magik opening your mind
buy the ticket take the ride
let me in on the other side
round and round and round and round we go
where it stops, nobody knows
the shaman's walking on a pigeon toe
the holy water's got a poisonous glow
charlatans of the other side
false magik opening your mind
buy the ticket take the ride
let me in on the other side, let me in
round and round and round and round we go
where it stops, nobody knows
the shaman's walking on a pigeon toe
the poison water's got a holier glow
Track Name: Coyote Fodder
coyote fodder, sons and daughters, wade in the water, coyote fodder
i saw you walking round my back door
i never knew you like i knew you like i did before
i noticed by the way you walked there was a stutter in your step slurring when talked, talked, talked, talk
coyote fodder, sons and daughters
i saw you walking round my back door, i never knew you like i knew you like i did before
i noticed by the way you walked there was a stutter in your step slurring when talked, talked, talked, talk
Track Name: Holy Roller
Casey Two Owls, tell my future to me
the black shakes and the opiates, wont let me be
with smoke pouring from her lips, as she says to me
this lie is getting old that im only 18
oh the west river days i roamed, downing rural water on gravel roads
make a break for it my sons, the man has got us on the run, we'll be gone before the sun
i feel them sweat, i hear them moan, i feel them ache, i hear them shake, and now their emptying their pockets in the collection plate
i've got the holy ghost ache and it won’t go away
oh the west river days i roamed, downing rural water on gravel roads
make a break for it my sons, the man has got us on the run, we'll be gone before the sun
Casey Two Owls told my future to me, the white robes and the holy rolls
and now its monetary
with wine spilling from her lips as she says to me
this righteous life is getting soft, i think it’s time we leave
Track Name: B.B. Gun
burning the candle at both ends
I always thought we would be friends
twice the life in half the time
when I still had youth by my side
run brother run I still got my bb gun
run brother run I still got my bb gun
twice the life in half the time
sipping the fire, kissing the flame
I always thought we’d be the same
twice the life half the time
when I still had youth by my side
run brother run I still got my bb gun
run brother run I still got my bb gun
twice the life in half the time
Track Name: Transcendental Medication
Sleep
wandering eyes to skies you wait
searching for signs of paths to take
come with me under my wing
I’ll take you to the unseen things
I am the god of the grind
I see with eye of the mind
I am the god of the grind
I see the light
I am the god of the grind
I see with eye of the mind
I am the god of the grind
I see the light
stuck, luck, amuck as you worship the stone
I find myself ascending to the throne
yearn, turn, and burn over every stone
I find myself calling this place home
behold, foretold tis written of old
I bare the hand that turns all to gold
weep deep i creep in the memory you keep
a thousand eyes watching as you sleep
Track Name: The Poisoned Mother
Oh black bells ringing down
hollow tones over hallowed ground
mercury rises without a sound
the poisoned mother defends her crown
ease up, ease up, ease up child
the nightwalkers neither meek nor mild
your mother carries a heavy weight
walking through snow up to her waist
chin up, chin up, chin up child
the night is heavy to release the wild
my eyes are blackened from sleepless nights
the sun is setting but i need the light
it wasn't til' i woke up that i fell asleep
nightwalkers at rest and i am put to ease
popping pills ain't counting sheep
cutting the chains to my own release
oh i'm at ease, i'm at ease
Track Name: Electric Grave
vibratory response rate
set to hallucinate
impedance becomes wave
lay in your electric grave
electric grave
electric grave
electric
grave
green vegetation becomes white cloud
the riffian stands in the riffian shroud
electric grave
electric grave
seismically
sonically
cosmically
concave
electric grave
electric grave
we come to pay tribute
to the, masters wave
tube after tube
string after string
we are the bringers of the riffian king
electric grave
Track Name: The Riffman Cometh
stand before me as i am the only seer
riffian lordess bathed in sacramental beer
sacred schematics tones harmonics and the rest
all hail the lord of the riff they cry as the see
the riffman cometh
sacred serpentine sight
ascended masters third eye
astral tubelifier flight
bringer of thunder and light
stand before me in our iommic praise
the laney growls down from outside the astral haze
sacred schematics tones harmonics and the rest
all hail the lord of the riff they cry as they see
the riffman cometh.
Track Name: Hou Dou Vou Dou
he was born in a southern town
southern church and some southern ground
that bayou voudou make his head spin round
here it come my lord
black bayou bellow, running out through the dead of night
keep a child down, keep a child down, keep a child out of the moonlight
gator crawl I’ve seen it all
a southern preacher with a southern drawl
a golden tooth and a blackened maw
here it come my lord
black bayou bellow, running out through the dead of night
keep a child down, keep a child down, keep a child out of the moonlight
olde fashioned black magik
Track Name: Thunder Rider/ Cremation Ground/ Meditation
unleash the heathen make him quieter
tame the behemoth that’s inside of the
Thunder rider
sacrifice tube, fuse, and capacitor
become electrical ambassador
thunder rider
ride the waves
stoke the flames
burn the bowl
get higher
thunder rider
