about

Gnarhval Chicago, Illinois

Archaeological finds indicate that something called a Gnarhval existed between 2011 BC and 2016 AD in Chicago. No one living today knows quite what a "sludge metal band" was, but it seems to have been a device for inflicting damage on one's hearing.

Track Name: Crown of Antlers
I AWAKE
THE CLOVEN HOOVES STILL RESONATE
IN MY SKULL
NO MORE SHALL I HIBERNATE
UNTIL SHE LIES DEAD
AND SILENCE REIGNS IN PEACEFUL WAVES
IT'S ON MY HEAD
THE KISS OF WINTER
THE SIREN CALLS
THE WRITHING FORCE
IN FROZEN HALLS
HER ANTLERED CROWN ELUDES ME HER SCENT IS INDISTINCT
I SEE THE FLASH OF DEER HIDE
BEAR SPIRIT LEND ME STRENGTH
THE SCRAPS OF FUR LAY BLOOD-RED
THE ANTLERS DRIP WITH GORE
HER HEAD HELD HIGH TRIUMPHANT
DEER WOMAN STRIDES/STRIKES ONCE MORE
Track Name: Iron Deficiency
YOUR HEAD HAS AN IRON DEFICIENCY
THAT ONLY MY AXE CAN CORRECT
I'LL GOUGE OUT YOUR EYES WITH A TOOTHPICK
I'LL THROTTLE YOUR NECK
SALT THE FIELDS AND SCORCH THE GROUND/SPIT THE BILE
DESOLATION ALL AROUND/THE WHILE
I'LL CUT OUT YOUR THROAT WITH MY SHOVEL
DISPOSE OF YOUR BODY MAKE HASTE
I'LL MAKE SURE THAT THEY'LL NEVER FIND YOU
THE CONSTABLE HASN'T A CLUE
A JUGULAR TO SEVER
I DRAW A BATH OF RED
NO LIFE MAY LAST FOREVER
AND HUNGER MUST BE FED
Track Name: The Swarm
A SWARM OF WASPS
FRAYED CLOTHES ON MY BACK
A NOOSE ON MY NECK
A GAG IN MY BREATH
A CAGE BENEATH
SWEAT IN MY EYES
AND RAGE IN HIS
A SWARM OF WASPS
AND EYES IN MY HEAD
A SCREAM AND A SMASH
NEVER HEARD OF AGAIN
VENOM IN MY VEINS
Track Name: I've Seen Things
I'VE SEEN THINGS YOU PEOPLE WOULDN'T BELIEVE
ATTACK SHIPS ON FIRE OFF THE SHOULDER OF ORION
I WATCHED C-BEAMS GLITTER IN THE DARK NEAR THE TANNHAUSER GATE
ALL THOSE MOMENTS WILL BE LOST IN TIME
LIKE TEARS
IN THE RAIN
Track Name: Fauna
THE GREAT SAVANNAH
SUN BURNS MY SKIN
EMERGE FROM WATER
THE HUNT BEGINS
A CLAW FROM NOWHERE
PIERCES THE VEINS
PLACED ON THE ALTAR
THE WILD REMAINS
CAUSTIC INJECTION FLOWING
CARDIAL RUST-BELT HOLES
SKELETAL POCK-MARKED VERMIN
LACRYMAL TIDAL SWELLS
A HUNT FOR UNTOLD VICES TORN IN A CANVAS BAG
BLOOD-PAINTED FACIAL FRACTALS
HARVEST CROWING ON
ADSILA
MERCURY
ACROSS THE DESERT
SAND IN MY EYES
A LUST FOR SILVER
A HUSK OF EYES
A TASTE FOR MURDER
BORN OF THE SUN
LEAVE MY EARTHEN HOLDING
THE DEED BEGUN
FED TO THE VERMIN
GIVEN TO DOGS
PORCINE CONVERSION
THROWN IN A BOG
LAMB TO THE SLAUGHTER
TRIGGERS IN LEASH
THRUST IN MY STERNUM
A HUNT COMPLETE
Track Name: Kinetic Skull
SWIRLING
WINDING
FLOWING
FLURRY OF THE SHARDS
CONCUSSING
LASHING
STEEL THEN RACKS MY SKULL
TWISTING
BRUISING
TIRES SCREECH AND ROAR
IMPENDING
CRASHING
HOLD FAST AND SHIFT THE DEAD
RED LIGHTS BLUE FLASHING
MOLARS IN MY MOUTH GNASHING
THE TASTE OF WARM GIN SALLOWS
THE FIELDS WILL ALL LAY FALLOW
NO TIME FOR RESTLESS ANGER
I SWEAR THEY ALL WILL PAY
WHITE KNUCKLE GRIPPING LEATHER
RACE FOR THE LEFT HAND WAY
A CURSE ON ALL YOUR HOUSES
NO CROPS NO COWS NO SHELTER
THE GREAT SNAKE SLITHERS FORWARD
HIS WRATH WILL NEVER FALTER
LIFTING
BREATHING
FIGHTING
CURSED HAND OF ANCIENT PATH
PUNCHING
FLOATING
SOAR IN AETHER VOID
CONNECTING
SEEING
ANOTHER CURSE TO BEAR
