Nothing 02:32
We are born with nothing And we’re doomed to fade away While life nails down our coffins We witness our decay The cold hands of the reaper Are wrapped around our throats We are at his mercy While we slowly choke We came with nothing We’ll leave with empty hands We came with nothing and We’ll be buried in oblivion We are born with nothing And abandoned to our fate Once our shadows disappear Nothing will remain When the void spreads out And inhales the pain When all static dies away Into the endless haze When darkness caves in Like vast black waves When all lights fade Nothing will remain Nothing lasts Nothing will Nothing lasts Nothing will remain
2.
How much more can you take Of the ever-growing weight How much more is enough Until you break away How much longer can you stay With the ever-growing pace How long… how long are you able To retain The strength to resist the pain That comes along with you As you’re running the rat race You slave away While you’re digging your own grave All your hopes and dreams dissolve Like salt in the rain How much more can you take Of the agony and strain How much more is enough Until you fade away How much longer can you stay On the course of your fate How much more can you take
3.
Wild vultures swarms wheel Over our heads Disguise the sun And cloak the sky in blackness Starved and restless They crave their feast Witness the affliction And man-made misery Born to suffer Live to decay Doomed to waste To waste away Pale skin, broken teeth And rotten bones Share their tomb with Wasted dreams and shattered hopes Born to suffer Live to decay Doomed to waste away Waste away
4.
Aftermath 02:14
Dark clouds roll in The air gets thin Days turn into endless nights A storm comes up It can’t be stopped There’s no place left to hide The plain signs In front of our eyes Ignored and suppressed With bloody hands We plead innocent But our guilt is obvious If there’s a hell We’ll all go down If there’s a hell We’ll go down Depleted, soiled Reaved, destroyed In the name of affluence With swollen tongues And dusty lungs We’ll choke on our arrogance If there’s a hell We’ll all go down If there’s a hell We’ll go down If there’s a hell We’ll be doomed to burn It’s a long way down With no return And so we sink, sink Sink with all our sins We all live and die With our failings and sins We deceive ourselves While we slowly sink We deceive ourselves While we sink With all our sins
5.
Broken Shell 02:44
Your golden shell disintegrates The image dies away True colors show Prevail and reveal What hides behind the masquerade The curtain falls on your cracking foundation Everything falls apart The ground breaks up Your lies pull you down And expose who you really are You can’t deny who you are The foundation caves in And your whole world falls apart You can’t mask your true self Can’t hide yourself Underneath your broken shell You can’t hide your failures Can’t distract from your mistakes Your shattered existence lies Underneath the wreckage Of your false facade Your… your whole world falls apart And everything caves in Your whole world falls apart Falls apart
6.
Dehumanized 02:16
You are just a number No one cares about your name A sequence of ciphers Uniform and plain Your purpose of existence Is to consume and breed A minor gear In the well-oiled machine Do not object Just keep in line Swallow your pills And numb your mind Do not resist And don’t stick out Do as your told Suffocate your doubts Dehumanized Synchronized Without a soul A slave to wealth Bound in chains Without control Replaceable Replaceable Suppressed, slaved and confined Chained to an empty life Dehumanized and preyed While you fade away You slowly fade… You slowly fade away Dehumanized and preyed
7.
You feel secure and safe Inside your golden cage Where you hide and seal yourself off While the world disintegrates You’re sure you’re out of reach Behind the walls you’ve raised Rely on their protection From the distress you create Trust you will be spared When the doom impends Secure and safe When the storm rolls in When the doom impends And the sky descends When the wrath comes crashing down You won’t be safe and sound You won’t be safe You won’t be safe You can’t escape your fate You won’t be safe
8.
No Salvation 02:41
There’s a craving Deep inside and It has taken control It infested
 Our minds and Poisoned our souls It cleaves through Our veins and Breeds, lives and spreads It feeds on Our morale and Leaves ruthlessness And there’s no salvation in sight No cure for our poisoned minds No salvation in sight That can save us from our demise From the craving inside No cure can save us Nothing will save us Nothing will save us From the craving deep inside
9.
Among Wolves 02:16
Like sharp-set brutes They creep around To satisfy their lust Restless creatures Prey on quarry Long for flesh and blood Obsessed with power Filled with malice They are out to cleave The scent of fear Lies in the air And you’re at their mercy Under cover of darkness The evil knows no rest You better save yourself Before this place turns into hell Under cover of darkness The evil’s merciless You better save yourself Before they unleash hell You better save yourself When the darkness of the night Has swallowed all daylight They creep around Scratching at your door They are brute and restless Unresisted and voracious You’re easy prey And they feel no remorse You better save yourself Before this place turns into hell You better save yourself You better save yourself
10.
There you stand with Arms open wide in the storm Begging for your salvation to come Facing the dark clouds Inhaling the blackness Witnessing the cataclysm That can’t be undone That can’t be Undone Can’t be undone As you drown in regrets And black despair Confronted with your failures Trapped in a nightmare You plead for mercy Pray with a golden tongue Repent For everything you’ve done Repent But the harm can’t be undone All that you’ve built Caves in again Declines and turns Into ruins in the sand Rejected Forsaken Lost in your desperation Begging for salvation That will never come Never come

about

Cremations debut full length 'Dissolution Of Balance' is an intense escapade of metallic hardcore on a number of levels. Formed in 2016 and featuring members of Empty Vision, Downfall of Gaia and King Apathy, the Hanover based band have consolidated their efforts into a hard hitting and concise body of work. Their first EP 1417 which was released in the Winter of 2017 provided close to 15 vigorous minutes of aggressive and atmospheric charm. This was merely a taste of what was to come. Heavier and more intense than their previous offering, this album is already a standout release of 2020. Taking a consistent approach musically, lyrically and visually has led to a unified opus and another step up for this colossal group.

From the outset you can tell that there is more on offer here than your standard hardcore record. It skilfully fuses punk sensibility with metal persuasion. The songs get straight to the point and are executed with the utmost fury. No intros or interludes, just 100% rage. Lyrically, a dark and misanthropic theme is established from the outset and built upon over the course of the album. The artwork is a clear visual representation of the lyrical content and these bleak sentiments are matched by the album title; describing an imbalance of a planet that is rapidly disintegrating. Appealing to fans of All Pigs Must Die, Rise And Fall, Trap Them and The Hope Conspiracy, this is a diverse release with potential to become a timeless classic due to the focused result and the ageless subject matter - the perennial destructive nature of society. Unfortunately it seems like there will never be a time when the exploitation of mankind and its environment will not be a relevant subject matter and this has clearly inspired and affected the band. David Deutsch/1408 Productions captured the sonic excellence at Waveland Studio in Hanover and mastering was performed by Alan Douches at West West Side in New York, USA (Baroness, Black Breath, Mastodon). The aforementioned album cover photo was taken by Maik Przyklenk and clearly communicates the subject matter at hand.
