liar, I culprit my grip is all you can choose impose, my will to abuse devour, the honesty seek to fill, this empty hole chosen words, define truth capture pain, exiled inside poison spilling heart's desires I will bring the sky down erase the past and scorch the ground banish, he'll cast them all away tears inside, in comes the new dawn eclipse the old guard divide
hatred it’s all the same fester, sting with rage I abhor you spit in the face of deceit swine fed lies, perfect disguise violent, in my mind inside, pain anguish, turn to ash outside, knife to your back deep hooks inside sicken a protest scream stil hide here hope you fucking die my enemy, die slowly forgotten denial, fury, accord, despond, sustain this loss, heals these wounds i dreamt you were dead
I came before the others baptized by poisoned men and when the doors swing open I'm free to sin again shameful descent how long will this silence last and will they suffer greatly defiled, ascend carry weight, stick to the path you worship alone scars from the herd tempt of the flesh god’s chosen few cancer spreads, releasing the aura disfigure the soul cut out stain spit out plague worship alone I die
tearing at the soul, alive to divide poisoned mind salt to wounds, cause to cure beloved, bruised, scars to backs betrayal of faith, angered cheers of the fallen, the grand design turn down the silence chosen words, define truth before it’s lost, bound ford ark shovel dirt into mouths hate, truth, defile death roll completes fear subsides sand, worm my way inside broken sacrament, your final prayer denied exhumed, maggot fire false prophet, false god, pure lies all is lost, the sting of tears, the wil to end, to set them free the heads on display place coins on eyes to allow safe passage, to a dimly lit room begin the exit, strip them clean wash the mouths, prepare the words and sadness left, to save us all to feast on the light, that’s died silence drowns takes it all away ashes lead the march the skulls are carved with final prayers
it sleeps with the night seek and survey, all the errors supplied ripping inside arranged in your skin trigger my flight crushing the breath installing the will curing the cause to stain and to bleed unclean call off the guards now, push the hate inwards bound flesh, extinguish beauty release the venom attach the stigma stil sick, exit the victim cover their mouth, mute her words empty the voice, deliver the pain scream all the prayers, run for your life fear regret, what am I to be suspect, falsify deadly heart buried and smothered I want you to suffer the way that I did suffer pig become enemy dilute prophecy covet the fallacy parade the irony whispers, rumored stolen, immerse I call out to send you back to hell painted whore


After nearly a 5 year hiatus, we have reformed and reformatted previously written but unreleased material mixed with a blend of brand new music and added a new member and old friend to the fold. The result is this EP. Carefully crafted and recorded over the course of a year and a half, in 4 different studios. We are tremendously proud and excited to give you all the final results. We hope you enjoy!!

***Digital Download comes with 2 downloadable PDFs featuring additional album art by Unexpected Specter along with full album credits and all lyrics!!

PRESS RELEASE: (via Earsplitcompound)

"Extreme metal outfit GRAVEN – formed by members of Swarm Of The Lotus – makes its destructive return in 2018, ending a nearly five-year hiatus with the recently-completed new EP, Heirs Of Discord. With members currently residing in Arizona, Maryland, New Jersey, and Florida, the band recorded Heirs Of Discord in multiple studios over nearly an entire year, and the results are nothing short of devastating. Now confirmed for early November release, the EP’s artwork, track listing, and more have been issued.

GRAVEN initiated the recording sessions for Heirs Of Discord in late 2017 and recorded in waves in multiple studios throughout the first half of 2018. The record features five original tracks as well as a cover of “Human” from Human Remains’ seminal album Using Sickness As A Hero.

With a scathing, grinding, pulsating attack, GRAVEN explodes with unhinged wrath and delivers a monstrous sounding release. The blasting grooves and volatility that drew such critical acclaim to Swarm Of The Lotus is here revisited and magnified to explosive new levels, delivered with top-tier production values."


released November 2, 2018
