1.
Curse 01:40
You don't own him...teeth in this corpse...builds a dying monument...flesh and earth cursed innocent and black...raped with tongues of steel and glass...how could you fucking touch him?...torn from the ashes to be...dragged by your face
2.
Dar Al-Harb 01:56
White rain falls across the walls of new Jerusalem...to the ashes of disbelief...cry your filthy lie...venomous embodiment of wrath and hate...the star burns bright scorching the land clear for repopulation....repopulation...swallows whole...your Zion crushes whole...caging every life for the devil's prize...country gutted out...nailed through the foot...christened in power...the beast's power....the beast's power
3.
Born with no soul of your own so you dig for bones in the graves of those you've enslaved and massacred....bronze your horns and hooves with blood and sacrifice...collapse at the altar of your barren life...frail and yellow...your spine twists downward from shame and the weight of your arrogance...carry the whisper that we are nothing more than stolen bones...and the blistered tongues of the dead carry the whisper...awake to a bleached destiny of sorrow...do you hear the voices escaping from the tongues that your hand cut out....the bell that summons you to surrender prayer is the bell that summons you to kill...in the end your own savagery has left you with nothing...and you're the one left out to die
4.
The Rise 03:21
Stand up...do you hear the songs of redemption coughed out from blackened lungs?...as the bittered martyred voices harvest the songs to ruins...ruins...pump the veins with blood and demons...to breed havoc baptized in venom...the screams turn to whispers and we forget it...do you see the streets turn cold and red?...as millions of swollen hands are unable to close or clinch...in a cycle of filth the rewards are reaped in ruins...ruins...and now we're safe...with blood in our own mouths...swallowed in faith...spit it out...the fear soaks in...pointing the way to the horizon...do we choke on our sins?
5.
Suffocation 01:25
These academies packed full ready to kill for the throne...in drone...gouging at any voice of fist raised to piercing...state stands...in death of the defense...the resistance falls in flock...for your ideal...power feeds...brokering the means of survival and liberty...when the soot falls down from the sky and hope breaks lose...are you numbed by the blade being pointed at you?
6.
Broken Dust 04:40
Broken dust falls from our hands to the grasp of eternity...eat it all till nothings left to consume but your own flesh...and from the birth of Jonah...ninety-nine names carved into hands of clay carry our liberation
7.
Temples adorned with charred and suffocated bodies that lay upon the ruins of broken hopes...split tongues of the white prophets of a new order...as millions of swollen, naked bodies left to rot in the sun...hang them from their white crosses...rip their throats out...and make them remember...the cries for forgiveness that echo down these empty, scared hallways...i cast you down with the strength of god

about

RACETRAITOR Chicago, Illinois

Racetraitor was one of the most political punk hardcore and metal bands of the 1990s. The band was known for aggressively challenging audiences to confront systematic racism and exploitative systems in new ways. Racetraitor was a pioneer in the blending of extreme metal with hardcore. Reformed in 2016, Racetraitor picked up right where they left off bringing their message and music into a new era. ... more
