ashtheblackram Still gives that kickass Cyberpunk vibe for me. The lyrics are perfect for any angry Corpo gone either cyberpsycho or Rockerboy.

Even outside of it, it's an amazing piece to wake up to.

preciousken This track is a bop. With firecracker exploding chain guitar work by Sebastian Svalland. I went in blind expecting cold razor precision on the production. Which is exactly what I got. What I was pleasantly surprised by was the range and voice charisma of Graves. It oozes with thick viscus grime and light footed cadence that keeps the energy constant and focused. The song also gives a tight compressed poetry of lyrics that convey a relatable idea in the modern era without an abundance of words.

Eat. Sleep. Work. Repeat. The Automaton carries on in its endless loop. Never failing. Never flinching. Never feeling.

My new single “Automaton” is about trying to reclaim one’s humanity and identity in a world that often demands they be sacrificed. A cold and mechanical mid tempo club track that evolves into an explosion of guitars and energetic screams, “Automaton” is a celebration of the human condition. Once again, guitars have been provided by Swedish virtuoso Sebastian Svalland (PAIN, Letters from the Colony, LINDEMANN) which breathe soul into an otherwise lifeless machine. Produced and mixed by none other than Rhys Fulber (Frontline Assembly, Delerium, Conjure One, Fear Factory).

The machine awakens on March 5th.


I’m automatic,
I’m automatic just like you,
Another panic,
Another rat inside an endless loop,

I can’t breathe
Sword it swings,
Looms over me.

So I’m just gonna slide,
From underneath the knife,
Away from all the lies,
So I’m just gonna slide.

Psychosomatic all along,
It’s an obsession,
It’s an obsession,
Foolish animals,

Pressure peaks,
Inside of me,
A war a beast,
