Avalanche 04:17
All the gods are crazy can't you see Like the firelight that builds in me Temper is the town I sank my feet Grinding churning endlessly Solar eclipse the day Mind beam narcotic state So far it looks the same High speed into the grave Avalanche surprise me when you fall Terror rides along this shooting star I see earth reflections staring tall Highlights of the world I left you on Started cold, Twin sight rhyme Midnight lung Wave they walk Tremble tired Empty signs Sore eyes tight More rain
Blood Drive 03:16
Self inflicted the wound I bled for you, come now and bleed for me too Then stitch me up again Can't see the shape of your face But you're eyes let my sunrise, blanket my mind Uncover me again Dead flowers on the wall vultures in the den Got a long list of foes and a shorter list of friends Bury my heart in the woods Spread my remains close by where the weeping willow stood I'll be born again
Day's Work 04:20
Caress me gently I'm on fire No wailing wall to hold my last two tears Upside down we did grow And if you memorize you're steps they just might get you out from here Ain't to much around here to hold someone's attention When you're eyes are bound I'll get the best of you and triumph A tidal wave of emptiness is near Have you heard pain before? I bet you listen well After forever you' re last words appear
I didn't write the rules you know, I merely redefined Fucking torture I can't stand the sites to see Blank space covers their eyes Common cuss is barely alive Slow erosion I hate the scene, hate the feel All your days been numbered clearly, I bit down choked on your failure No explosion can crease the fear Alluring skies Busting rails and I've punctured my head Big city rat the race A country boy immersed in grace Slow convulsions I hate the scene hate the feel All your days been numbered clearly, I bit down choked on your failure This ain't no howling cry, this is a guiding hand Striking you down, while slowly sinking Fall into the wall Crawl under the hall
Castlestorm 03:55
The weakness is driving us wild Trapped in impatience the hunt Unleash us to victory fire Bask in the wine of our flood Millions of feet to climb these heights Thoughts not one betray I'd Torture the rest of my days Just to run wild once again Lie and tremble Struck by the sunlight flanked by the rain Gods shame pit flesh wound cave Unraveled by a lifetime of shit and disfigurement Holy abandonment slave Lie and tremble like a failure Line up, come and take it
Scratching out from hell Dig until you're tired, tired, tired Dream a while, dream for miles and miles Wreckless as the wind obeys Playful as the pain Come as you were Unwoven and broken Desperate indeed Dead in the deepest end Iron will weld but strike while it's burning Come lend your grievances Blackout the colors that sting I believe it's not for me Empty coffin I sink, low The lions could tame us Or parade our flesh to the backdoors of yesterday's dream I need a new eye to build my sky
Earthwalk 04:11
The arch of night is hard to find We all must hide with our two eyes from you And god wars drive through all our time While long and hard the walk to try for you Leave us and go All night earth cries beautiful sounds
Under my bow, an arrow Northern twine, strung to a southerly stave Twilight of a life, eastern black watery gaze Western swine, fruits of the seasonal raze Surprise the break of day Gone Writhing everyone Lost smiles, demon rhymes Twisted through time Severed by stone, new marrow Rosen spine, draped in olfactory glaze Romance be the wine, fermented water of snakes Downstream lies, black pond where lucifer waits
Hawkeye 02:42
Set the tourniquet Bury shots at the firing range Trading scars Wreck and return Casualty outcome but I won't be one It's a hostile retreat and the fangs are out, and it's coming after me again It's an ordinary lie, on an ordinary day And it's coming after me again Lights out we ride Tearing holes in a sunken sky Fictional crisis Choke in the air Believing in something but it's just not there
Stargazin 03:42
Stuck inside a beating circle Define my nature, first in the fun My arms gather tracks left behind It's toxic roots and heads like tree scars Lick wounds and atrophy Born to ride helplessly into a burning sky We can't eat them all at one time But we like the way It keeps ourselves on the climb Mother maker rebirth in the sun Stuck inside a beating circle Torn by time in fields forever Hearts born twice at once
The Ladder 04:03
Would you go down, down Into the flames with me Set a course, for die speed The bayonet obeys It feels like the dark page is turning Death faces engrained in my floor At first light there goes Jacob running And the nameless take shapes like a storm Take a hold of bright light The heir of sane betrays Seven floors to dive through The air in flames remains
I found a reason to breathe My enemies are left behind The walls that you drew Have colored me in color blind Good enough to eat, old enough to teach Gonna find out what they're killing for Darling you're used You complicate the howl inside Imbalanced and doomed Stick with me and lose your mind


ASG emerge from the sandy shores of North Carolina to deliver their fourth full length and Relapse debut ‘Blood Drive’. Sun soaked groove heavy riffs that reference equal parts Torche and Queens of the Stone Age ‘Blood Drive’ is nothing short of anthemic. ASG have toured the country relentlessly with the likes of Corrosion of Conformity, Weedeater and Black Tusk. But what’s most remarkable about ‘Bloodlines is that any of its 12 instantly memorable songs could just as easily be FM radio smash hits. What sets ASG apart from their swampy peers is singer/guitarist Jason Shi’s voice: this is a set of songs that are truly SUNG by a guy who can actually SING. ‘Bloodlines’ is a kick ass blast of sun that elevates ASG to the level of some of their most well-regarded Relapse label-mates like Baroness and Mastodon.
