about

Walking dead everywhere. Surrounded. Outnumbered. Hopeless.

That's what this album should sound like. That is, if it all came screaming at you out of your Nintendo. After more than two years of blood, sweat, tears, and more blood, They Came From Beneath is a reality. Death metal that conforms (for the most part) to NES hardware limitations for chiptune glory. I can't say much else about this album that isn't already said in the track descriptions, but I'm glad it's finally done and ready for people to enjoy.

I can't thank everyone that helped me with this endeavor enough, but the list will help:
My wife, for giving me the drive to make more music and putting up with the bleeps, bloops and blastbeats I made her listen to. Norrin_Radd for his chiptune tutorial, his samples, his creativity and Anomaly. Bit_Rat for his style, his contribution and his concept album awesomeness. Travis Morgan for his motivation, his feedback, his ideas, and Sunken Colony. VikingGuitar for Death Slam and his hyper-metal albums. The Rocking Dead for their excellent vocal skills (Travis, Viking, TBoG, Rubber, and Satanplate; thanks to Battlerager for the name). Nate Horsfal (FoxxDragon) for his incredible artwork. Justin Tully for loaning me a microphone and letting me hijack his kitchen for the first round of vocals. Rushjet1 for creating RJDMC. Jace for Prizmatic Spray and Sky Burial. JMR for running Open Circuit on Arecibo Radio and playing a few preview tracks for me. I swear that if I forgot anyone I will add you, there's just so many people that helped me!

And everyone else that inspired this album in so many ways:
George Romero, Robert Kirkman, Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, The Black Dahlia Murder, Deceased, Arch Enemy, Iron Maiden, Children of Bodom, At The Gates, Iced Earth, Bun Bun, H. Maezawa, Capcom, Konami, Valve, Twilight Creations Inc., Castlevania, The Faceless, Garth Ennis, In Thy Dreams, Slayer, Danny Boyle, Sam Raimi, Max Brooks and every other band or zombie-related piece of media that gave me the fuel to stir my creative juices.

Track Name: No More Room in Hell
The maw from which these fiends were born
Has left the earth asunder torn
Approach en masse half decomposed
A symphony of sickly moans

They seek to eat your organs raw
Intestines, liver, heart they gnaw
Each bit of you a morsel fine
Their favorite feast on which to dine
Their appetite now that they've died
Will not ever be satisfied
They'll come forever locked in death
To steal and taste your dying breath

Here they come
Where can we go? Can't hide we have to
Run, we run
But at each step every turn
There they are
Down each street and alleyway we learn that
No, nowhere
Is safe. What can we do where do we
Go? Just go!
Don't succumb to the despair!
Oh God!
They're on us now, they're everywhere

They sprang from our most twisted dreams
These fearless undead machines
On the march to find us out
Of this there is no doubt we have to

Run, we run
But at each step every turn
There they are
Down each street and alleyway we learn that
No, nowhere
Is safe. What can we do where do we
Go? Just go! Don't stop!

The peal of our death knell
All for what it's worth
When there's no more room in Hell
The dead will walk the Earth
Track Name: By Removing the Head or Destroying the Brain (f. Norrin_Radd)
Run!
Flee in abject terror
From all those that you once cared for
Mother, neighbor, roommate, friend
All of them have met their end
Nothing now but lifeless eyes
That see you as their tasty prize
Hands that once gave love's caress
Will pull you down to certain death
All the joy that you remember
You'll forget as they dismember
Feasting on your life so precious
They find your entrails delicious

A well placed bullet
A sharpened stick
When cranium collides with brick
A three wood club
A baseball bat
Making zombie skulls go "splat!"

They have no fear they're coming straight for you
To taste your flesh there's nothing they won't do
They'll never stop because they feel no pain
You must remove the head or destroy the brain

Ripping! Shredding! Tearing flesh away
The only thing around you is the stench of their decay
They'll drain the marrow from your bones
And then make you a mindless drone
Rotten fingers rake your face
Humanity's great fall from grace
They'll turn your body inside out
And savor every scream and shout
To eat your brain hear comes the flood
To drag you down and drink your blood
For the essence of life they thirst
This is truly Hell on Earth

Stay inside
Lock your doors
This world you knew is no more
Will you fight?
Or run away?
Or be the undead's buffet?

They have no fear they're coming straight for you
To taste your flesh there's nothing they won't do
They'll never stop because they feel no pain
You must remove the head or destroy the brain

They stalk the night
For one to bite
They'll be here soon
To spell your doom

Now come to life your worst nightmare
You can't escape their vacant stare
The look that bores into your soul
Continues as they eat you whole
Hunger drives this deadly horde
As they propel you toward a
Fate that's so much worse than death
You cannot comprehend
What it's like to have no mind
Humanity is left behind
Fight them off with all your might
Or you will not survive this night

Persevere
Stay alive
Do all you can to survive
Fortify
And defend
Man up now or it's the end

They have no fear they're coming straight for you
To taste your flesh there's nothing they won't do
They'll never stop because they feel no pain
You must remove the head or destroy the brain

They have no fear they're coming straight for you
To taste your flesh there's nothing they won't do
They'll never stop because they feel no pain
You must remove the head or destroy the brain
Track Name: What a Horrible Night to Have the Undead Feast Upon Our Entrails
This Hell where man feeds on his brother
Hunted now we run for cover
As prey we pray for it to end
But the dead to not have wills to bend
Of flesh they were now flesh they crave
No one's coming, we won't be saved

They're everywhere, there's no escape
We carry on, deny our fate
Yet despite how hard we try
The end is extremely fucking nigh

Now we face man's greatest trial
Confronted by death's sickly smile
The truth with which we cannot cope
We search but find there is no hope
Lost
Doomed
Trapped upon this Earth our tomb
Search in vain for answers, why?
Struggle just to wait to die?

Everything we had is gone
Where life once was there now is none
They should have died when sickness spread
But they came back for us instead
This living death that stalks our home
Is all that's here. We are alone.

Where to go? Where to be?
Where can we find sanctuary?
Squaring off against this test
We lost, we fell now we regress


Now we face man's greatest trial
Confronted by death's sickly smile
The truth with which we cannot cope
We search but find there is no hope
Lost
Doomed
Trapped upon this Earth our tomb
Search in vain for answers, why?
Struggle just to wait to die?

What's left of us is scattered wide
We cannot win, we run, we hide
We lost control there's nothing left
Of a will to fight and strength, bereft
Return to ash from whence we came
Life and death: one in the same

Haunted by the mangled cries
It is now we realize
After all is done, and all is said
With a heavy heart full of dread
IT'S WE THAT ARE THE WALKING DEAD!

We have failed our greatest trial
Face extinction's sickly smile
The truth with which we cannot cope
All is gone there is no hope
Lost
Doomed
Trapped upon this Earth, our tomb
Huddle close and wonder why
In fading life we wait to die
