Self titled demo by angsty punk / skramz nerds from Victoria, British Columbia.

I found this album through the tag "skramz" on bandcamp and fell in love. It's short and to the point, but the emotion has so many perfect moments. It's fast, angsty, and borderline caustic; everything you want in a skramz release. This is a co release with Toska Tapes in Canada.

Track Name: Scrap it for parts i guess
can somebody please tell me
why people in the punk community
put on all ages shows when they
openly allow known sexual predators
to attend and perform
when some kid gets hurt
trying to have a fun night
seeing some bands play
i hope you recognize the part
you played in that process
keep pretending nothing happened
"he's a good dude"
Track Name: Passion collapsing
wake up
dead words snaking forth
from jaws with too many teeth
twisting and twisting and twisting
your soul until it finally gives away
and breaks under the pressure
everything i had
i fell asleep again
Track Name: Hollow iconography
reliable hangmen of the working class
hanging your heads in grief and shame
hanging your heads with the defeated sense
of youthful optimism
what we dreamed of compared to our realities
who we became in the end
Track Name: Wall of night
i opened my eyes
front row of the pews
for the first time
dreaming of seven
if i try do you think
i'll get to heaven?
i don't think
i've got a chance in hell
cut the words
from my mind and my heart
Track Name: Final embrace
we band together
in attempts to fend off
and it works
for a time
two barely flickering
candles dancing alight
under a ghost ocean
ghastly shadows looming
ever larger
heavy sunken step by step
it always comes crawling back
sooner or later
crawling down your throat
into your heart and spirit
where it lurks
skulking on its throne
sculpted from
the caresses and carcasses
of thousands of dead dreams
and wasted chances
i'm sorry it hurts
Track Name: a most unwelcome sense of entitlement
regime change
deep-set eyes
home is a lie
we scramble
desperately to find
some inkling of
comfort in
your heart is
undergoing a regime change
and it burns you
but it will burn her
so much more
than you will ever
Track Name: isolation sanctuary
rain pounding
against the windows
