about

Fronted by vocalist Scott Angelacos of Bloodlet fame, JUNIOR BRUCE‘s debut album continues along the sludgy path paved by their predecessors.

With no intention of rehashing their musical past, JUNIOR BRUCE take a sharp turn into territory riddled with straightforward grooves, huge stoner riffs and gruff, yet melodic vocals.

Recommended for fans of St Vitus, Torche and High On Fire.

Track Name: Defeatist
DEFEATIST

Legends told of misfortune disasters and plagues
Written off as undeserved subjugated as their slaves
Living lives in servitude desperate for a king
The defeated place their hope on the shadow of a dream
A heart made of paper and a soul cut out of tin
Intrepid man steps forward to roll the stone of Sisyphus

Destined to fail
Determined not to try
Surrender

In the dark of the night where evil decides the fate of the faithless
A throne occupied by destruction's child comes into visions
Surrounded in flesh in blood he is drenched so the damned may be forgiven
And for every life taken by his knife another has risen
Track Name: Warriors Of The Son
WARRIORS OF THE SON

Hellbent and unidentified premeditated and predisposed
Languish in lividity degenerate then explode
Bound and isolated disintegrate bones be ground
A new god the divinity on your knees your life is mine

Raiders crossing land and sea
Carry lies beneath their wings
The warriors of the son
Their battle has begun

In the shadow of a giants greed
On iron horses rides his cavalry
With motives shrouded in mystery
And a promise to live and die by the blade

Raiders crossing land and sea
Carry lies beneath their wings
The warriors of the son
Their battle has begun

Their born baptized in fear darkened with doubt raised in shame
They die alone and hollow withered and worn a crying shame

Raiders crossing land and sea
Carry lies beneath their wings
The warriors of the son
A war that's never won
Track Name: The Headless King
THE HEADLESS KING

An unholy army marches north
How does one do battle with a ghost
Killing is what they do and they do it well
So arm yourself

Prepare your god has abandoned you
No hero today for the wicked are willing

Steel clashing in a sea of blood
No compassion no hope
Serpent squeezes the life from all he knows
To kill this snake the head must go

Prepare your god has abandoned you
No hero today for the wicked are willing

Where evil lives darkness consumes the light in a swarm of flies
A headless king has no where to place his crown

No quarter deaths gaze is near
Through the gore thine enemy is clear

Where evil lives darkness consumes the light in a swarm of flies
A headless king has no where to place his crown
Track Name: Lt. Fury
LT. FURY

Fixated on the serpents eye Crom's hand will guide you
Bring the devil into the light and show me what your'e made of
A galaxy devoid of light never-ending and hollow
The thieving bastards may prevail tonight but we will rule tomorrow
Stone deaf but still a threat the miser will find you
And take your soul down below and trade it for an ounce of gold

If you've got a soul that you ain't doing nothing with just follow my lead
On leather wings with serpents eyes on his throne sits the prince of lies

Sobering trip into the depths
A journey fraught with peril
His eyes see through to count the evil deeds you do
If they do not number three you're worth twice as much to the beast

If you've got a soul that you ain't doing nothing with just follow my lead
On leather wings with serpents eyes on his throne sits the prince of lies
Track Name: Persuading The Divine
PERSUADING THE DIVINE

What would you do if it came right at you
Would you run and hide if you could

Persuading the divine
With sword and fire

Heavy metal rain
Mortality a roll of the dice
Fate awaits what you decide
Fight or flight

Persuading the divine
With sword and fire

Forests turn to iron and the beast ceases to turn
Vile men and hypocrites worthy targets for our blades
Track Name: A Plague For Thieves
A PLAGUE FOR THIEVES

It was genius the way it took over everything
It burst in like a flame and left us in soot
It covered the walls the buildings and streets
A black blanket covered the city and put their world to sleep
It was a plague a pestilence for thieves
There will be no passing through you take some with you
Damned if you do ravenous self mutilation
And there will be no passing through you take some with you
It covered the walls the buildings and streets
A black blanket covered the city and put their world to sleep

Grab a hold
Mutate and live on
The castaway floating decay let me live
It has rotten from lingering
The castaway floating decay let me live
Seethe and smolder intake
The cast away floating decay let me live
Track Name: Waffle House Murders
WAFFLE HOUSE MURDERS

It's not like you to use a knife
Still waiting for a sign of life
They're coming to take you away
Bound and smothered chopped and covered

Do you feel like your lung is collapsing
Well that's because it is
The line blurs like the end is approaching
Well that's because it is

Soul crusher with empty eyes
Desperate measures in desperate times
They're coming to take you away
Bound and smothered chopped and covered

Do you feel like your lung is collapsing
Well that's because it is
The line blurs like the end is approaching
Well that's because it is
Track Name: Churchburner
CHURCHBURNER

To stifle the winds of change
The people scream his name
And summon a demon
One hundred feet tall with a thousand eyes

They promise him it all
If he'll make a giant wall
To keep their foes at bay
And drive the fear away

The wall soon touched the sky
One foot for every eye
Now safe inside their cage
With a demon at the gate

They promise him it all
If he'll make a giant wall
To keep their foes at bay
And drive the fear away

Come forth my children and bring your first born
It takes more than words to feed a beast
Like fire down a mountain descending slow
You watch it burn until it's at your feet now what

A raindrop to a drowning a death that's nice and slow
There you will stay for eternity in silence
Fear is the great motivator and violence is divine inspiration
Creating a machine that devours everything
Now safe inside their cage with a demon at the...
Track Name: The Serpent Lives
THE SERPENT LIVES

To watch them laid to waste
Under the full moons glow
To see the serpent unwind
And watch his prey fall

Coming of the dawn
Will see us deceived
Reaching for the end
Burning flesh horrific wreck

A thousand times they wandered
A hundred times warned
Velocity undetermined
Mortality rate a million to one
A captive in a metal cage
The victim alone with his end
Track Name: Book Of Tyranny
BOOK OF TYRANNY

Chosen for their malcontent
When reason is at its end
Soon the rape of nations will complete the creed
And foretold agony befalls the living sea

Blood has been spilled
Upon your book
Innocence feigned

Don't look now but your ivory tower is blackened and in flames
Surrounded by the dead who call your name

Frozen for a century
Until the sons of man unleash their disease
Sacrilege on a burning witch
Will consume and destroy all

Blood has been spilled
Upon your book
Innocence feigned
