Scripture Blinder Biased minds under false conviction Blind by ignorance Corrupt by DNA Benighted enlightenment Selective intelligence Denying progression Opposing for your false convictions Enemies of reason
Passa in, patcha rätt Bitterhet mot ängslighet Med kappan efter vinden Lägre rang mot den gule get Och skiten brädar dikten Följ flocken, söndra och trampa ner Men känslan naglas fast Passa in, patcha rätt Bitterhet mot ängslighet Med kappan efter vinden Lägre rang Mot den gule get Men känslan naglas fast
A toxic stench dims the visor Seeping from the toxic eyes An aura of fear Disguised with command Unopposed, unfulfilled These pillars of filth, draped in unjust With gavels shining red of blood Unauthorized Unparalleled Make My Pig Panic
Hearing without seeing Speaking without thoughts Raising your opinion Of things you do not know False propaganda Denial of facts A blind mass hysteria It’s time to react History repeats itself Idiots on parade Half a generation Led astray
Unwanted souls Traded for numbers Reject Walking hand in hand Towards extinction Fail (From) Graduation to devastation Walking hand in hand Towards extinction ... of mankind
Dedication 02:19
This cracked skull takes all the beating These broken arms takes every fall With the fragments beneath us Cleanses the curse, puts to rest Saves what is left and wades Through this sea of heavy dust This clouded mind - benumbed, reduced to nothing Please salvage this wreckage This cracked skull takes all the beating And these broken arms takes every fall A sewn shut embrace can never let go Forever sworn Through life Through death
Air raid Dull blades Asphalt scraps now seal your fate Fiery red Burning hearts Blackened deathly flags of hate
Absent-minded, moving slowly Further away, into nothing We're born into this Endless cycle, everlasting Quest for solace and righteous deeds We're fooled from the beginning We're born into this
Sprawl of hateful minds A swarm of ancient lies Blind - led to worship Deaf - made to worship Drunk with pride Engulfed with hate Cold hearts ripe with fear Line up, collapse is near Blind - led to worship Deaf - made to worship Regress Relapse Rebuild
Down And Out 01:53
Another dream laid to waste Painted black, smeared out Incomplete A source of light, a sole savior Reversed, forever cursed? Diseased Honored as dust Despised like plague Nothing left but death
Dark beliefs breeds the human plague Foul convictions feeds a rising rage A gathering of leeches draining fuel from the ground Swarms of locust cover light from the sun Through god hatred was found Through hate endless wars were won Through suffering, through pain Marching on, driving the masses insane In the name of suffering
Blackened soiled and torn Abandoned and alone Sole witness Remnants of a fall... Blinded by our own confinement Mine Eruption Denied regrets - denied remorse Guided by a broken lens A false prediction Lost on a straight path last More Expansion Forge Construction Ghost of progress past Deliver us at last
Forsaken 01:22
Born into a life Deep in the abyss Trampled upon Never to rise again Reduced and abused A bottomless hole Wretched and soiled Standing alone Forsaken Abandoned all hope The rest of your life In everlasting misery Reduced and abused A bottomless hole Wretched and soiled Standing alone Forsaken Minutes turns to hours Hours turns to days Rejected, neglected Forever more molested
Collapse 01:02
Nothing is real, not what it seems Everything is falling apart Numerous decisions They all end the same I'm caught in this dream, vicious and mean Under the ice daylight blocked out Sinking so fast Still remember the past
Wipe it out, the guilt and the blame Leave it in the gutter The burden and the shame Mock the cutouts Bring the kerosene, cultivate your hate You let it out Terror reigns again
Svart Hål 01:07
Så trött på skiten, vill inte mer Gömmer det där ingen annan kan se Fyllt upp till bredden, det står vid min hals Den ondska som göms är inte svår att ta fram Självkontroll tillbaks på noll Öppna dina ögon men kan inte se I livet du haft där allting gick fel Du ska få se nu Visa mig vad du går för Av med handskarna, fram med nävarna Börja veva för ditt liv Ditt liv eller mitt liv Ditt liv eller mitt liv
Hidden behind an image A life as a sorry excuse A withered facade... Yet still in denial No soul in the edges of your eyes Blank - Hollow - Corrupt No compassion All bonds severed Visceral genocide One way communication No soul The worst of all hypocrites Everyone else is to blame


Swedish grindcore veterans GADGET return with The Great Destroyer, their first new full-length in over 10 years. A blistering high-speed assault of relentless grind, The Great Destroyer is a cohesive exercise in extremity that blends hints of doom, sludge and death metal with unadulterated, old-school grindcore. The result is an album that is as memorable and infectious as it is pummeling and explosive. With The Great Destroyer, GADGET have released their most accomplished material to date!
