Levrikon Jucifer's take on DC hardcore, mixed with '90s Scandinavian black metal. Intentionally underproduced, it sounds like it was recorded in a cardboard box, just a blur of mangled riffs, sore-throat yelps, and stuttering drums. Killer if you just want a blast of pure ugliness. Favorite track: It Cant Be Helped.

nidefatt Jucifer is a band full of opinions. They think America's government sucks, for instance, but perhaps not for the same reasons you do. To explore that hatred, the duo coopted the sound of the DC punks, and brutalized it. This album is what you want to listen to when you feel like society is so sick you're ready to see it bomb itself to death. Cheers.

Jay Lane Harsh vocals, hazy riffage and deliberately shitty production make this album Jucifer's ugliest and most brutal output to date. Given the subject matter of this "themed" album, the irony is not lost on me. It's a slight, but welcome departure from their art metal days of yore and more significantly, it is effective. Cheers to Amber and Ed for yet another great album that I'm sure will sound even better in a "live" setting. Favorite track: Non Gratum Anus Rodentum.

Red Summer 02:56
dust off the lens of duration men showed their worth can't deny served in the trench for this nation given no honor, swing high justice! justice! cowards justice! justice! time crush them! crush them! crush them cure these ills in kind rush to avenge false transgressions accept the worst deep inside flood to dispense blind aggressions murder will knock out the light of right get them! get them! get them! war on these lost now to hate get them! fire from the rooftops now there's no more time to wait paranoid posses ride torches lit burn in their eyes life burning away eyes turning away marching back home to begin again marred from the fight outrageous plight: returned from fighting, return to fight returned from fighting return to fight return to fight ash forgot as dust swept in time to trust but mute these dead who speak and meet them while we sleep

Ratified 02:19
fled sovereign rule for foreign shores trailed over seas by kingdom wars blindside your succor from tribes here before infect our blankets 'civilize' clothe us in homicide treaties signed show veneers of white hubris lines every page with blight sufferers lands bought on full displacement parsed as kind strange view of independence our people wrecked as you contrived signed with x ratified genocide ratified genocide ratified genocide our lands reduced to white men's smallest mercy our hands induced to relinquish in english marks signed with x signed with x signed with x ratified

side other side time just bide fine line described side other side ride out never knowing doubt ride hard rush to lead the charge ride out keep the enemy close ride high never renege on a boast lead, mislead preach false creed need newsfeed lede, mislead ride long beat the glory gong right wrong keep the narrative strong ride fast cut the lines you cast ride last photoshopping the past stand with the lies that you hide from the soldiers smile in the smoke gusting forth to conceal you float in the gas that you sold to insurgents deal from a deck drenched in blood of innocents stand in the light of the damned and the blight smile and condemn what you wrought by short sight maintain illusions false reasons to fight smile and be damned as you stand in the light smoke billows out like a gift from a sadist light in the sky writes them out of existence light in the sky writes them out of existence

WarStartDemo 02:08
war starts at home war starts at home die from the hand up die with the aid you sent to your enemy arm the allies until they turn your own weapons against you kill write the treaties kill impose sanctions against your own tactics arm the allies fire hypocrisy from all chambers war starts at home war starts at home you create your people's death war starts at home war starts at home line your pockets well gorge on little nations' hell with a righteous appetite brandish noble purpose "we're dispensing justice; this is just the process" lie, for the masses have short memories sigh, when your public face requires it always pick a side and never reason why you're not a terrorist if you're sure you're right and if you change your mind it's simple to change sides it's only money spent

Justice 01:56
hide jaws of law cut to the mountains, to the forest, to the swampland, to the cavern to the mountains, to the forest, to the northland, to the underground dying with no rights to justice to life call dying for justice hide with the lights out ride after nightfall hide with the lights out ride after nightfall freedom arbitrary accusation sufficient proof hoods rise up the specter of death set hellhounds to your trail ghastly hordes pursue you brandishing this law like scythes cut away your rights reapers reave your very soul justice double crosses itself to economy hoods rise up the specter of death hollow skulls chatter gibbons of greed they steal your life justice denied they steal your life justice denied they steal your life justice denied

The following lyrics are comprised entirely of quotes from George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four: the object of persecution, is persecution the object of torture, is torture the object of power, is power the object of power is power war is peace freedom is slavery ignorance, strength war is peace he who controls the past controls the future who controls the present, controls the past war is peace freedom is slavery ignorance, strength war is peace power is not a means, it is an end the object of power is power power is not a means, it is an end the object of power is power if you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself
