Shaun Hamilton I heard about this band through a Facebook friend and took his advice to listen to them. I was immediately drawn to the sound. Such a solid EP from beginning to end! Much love to the boiz in Monasteries.... can't wait for the new stuff!

Nani Popper! At the time of purchase I hadn't listened to more than F(r)iend. About 4 times in a row. I don't know if it's just because i'm high as fuck but this is the most straight-up no dick-pullin' heaviest shit i've simply ever heard. With sneaky melodies. My sweet tits it's just so good. These breakdowns are so fucking ugly♥ Chugs for days. Favorite track: F(r)iend.

Track Name: Flatline
See what ive seen
and you might just know
how this world is out of focus
all they give is false hope
ill augment a palace from your bones
we all live and die alone, wake the dead
let the demons take control
ill make a dead talk and you’ll take the final fall
ill make a dead talk and you’ll take the final fall
the grasp around my neck is getting tighter

through the mirrors we cant see
through the walls
outside the boundaries

they wont ever let me be
still they continue to
burn me
burn me

ill augment a palace from your bones
a vertebrae for each step
this throne embodied in bone
my cavity of malice to call my own
and in my bitterness, irresolute and forlorn
their jaded eyes won’t leave me alone
everything I see is red
(exercise the demons within)
i carved this warpath
all the way TO THE END

Close my eyes and hope, for a better day
each passing moment, turns blue to grey

let every bridge i burn, animate every path i turn x4
