about

New for 2016, the long-awaited new ONSLAUGHT SIX album DOWN IN FLAMES has been unleashed. A return to roots, the album is entirely written, recorded and performed by Onslaught Six with no assistance and is a return to the more industrial metal sounds of 2012's TERMINA or 2010's LAMDA ECKS while retaining all the fancy production know-how and writing skill of the last four years. Is this a culmination? No. It is a new beginning.

Sometimes you have to burn everything to the ground and start over again. It's only when we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.

Track Name: AT-AT
I drive my big machine
Across the snowly lands
In the moon forest
Comb the desert sands

We walk across the ground
On the legs of this machine
The rebels and their forces
Trampled underneath

AT-AT
AT-AT
AT-AT
AT-AT

I drive my big machine
Made of molten steel
Follow the Empire's conquest
Obey its every will

We never question orders
We always just assume
Futilely we march on
Toward our certain doom

AT-AT
AT-AT
AT-AT
AT-AT

...WE MARCH ON!

AT-AT
AT-AT
AT-AT
AT-AT

I drive my big machine
Across the snowly lands
I'm tired of being a prisoner
The controls are in my hands

I won't listen to what you say now
I won't do as I am told
I'll destroy this evil regime
And make you all die in the cold

AT-AT -- WE MARCH ON! WE MARCH ON!
AT-AT -- WE MARCH ON! WE MARCH ON!
AT-AT -- WE MARCH ON! WE MARCH ON!
AT-AT -- WE MARCH ON! WE MARCH ON!

Track Name: Down In Flames
You can't stop me or tell me what to do
I'm moving on because I'm done with you
And if my life is worse off for that
Then you can find me where I'm buried at

The decision is mine, you can't convince me
Nothing you say will make me see
And if my choice fills me with guilt
I'll destroy this life that I have built

If I'm going down, I'm going down in flames
If I'm going down, I'm going down in flames
If I'm going down, I'm going down in flames
If I'm going down, I'm going down in flames

I'm not a failure, I'm not a flop
I'm gonna keep the fire, no matter what
I'll prove to you what I know inside
You'd be better off if I would've died

Give up now, and pay the price
There's still time, you know, to take my advice
Hang up your guitar and put it on the shelf
And while you're at it, go kill yourself

If I'm going down, I'm going down in flames
If I'm going down, I'm going down in flames
If I'm going down, I'm going down in flames
If I'm going down, I'm going down in flames

I'm going down...
I'm going down...
I'm going down...
I'm going down...
I'm going down...
I'm going down...
I'm going down...
I'm going down!

If I'm going down, I'm going down in flames
If I'm going down, I'm going down in flames
If I'm going down, I'm going down in flames
If I'm going down, I'm going down in flames

AND I DON'T CARE!
AND I DON'T CARE!
AND I DON'T CARE!
AND I DON'T CARE!
Track Name: No Fun Allowed
You say you want to joke around with me?
You say you wanna have a laugh?
Well I got news for you, cockmunch
There's No Fun Allowed
It hits me when I'm in a bad place
Or when I'm in a good mood
It happens when I've just woken up, or if
I haven't eaten any food

You ask me why? I'll tell you why
You really wanna know why? Well I'll tell you why!

I want you to be...as miserable as me
I want you to be...as miserable as me
I want you to be...as miserable as me
I want you to be...as miserable as me

When my robot armies come to life
The first thing they'll do is kill everyone
But the people who will be shot first
Are all the ones who are having fun
It's only when I am serious
That I truly feel alive
The entire rest of the time
I seriously want to die

You ask me why? I'll tell you why
You really wanna know why? I'm gonna let you know why!

I want you to be...as miserable as me
I want you to be...as miserable as me
I want you to be...as miserable as me
I want you to be...as miserable as me

I don't have to explain myself to you
Who are you to tell me what to feel?
You don't know all the things that I've been through
Who's to say what's fake and what is real?

You ask me why? I'll tell you why
You really wanna know why?! Why don't you know why?!

I want you to be...as miserable as me
I want you to be...as miserable as me
I want you to be...as miserable as me
I want you to be...as miserable as me

As miserable as miserable as me
As miserable as miserable as me
As miserable as miserable as me
As miserable as miserable as me
...As me!
Track Name: Wreck And Die
TRYNNA FUCKIN DRIVE AND YER GIVIN ME BULLSHIT
TRYNNA FUCKIN DRIVE AND YER GIVIN ME BULLSHIT
TRYNNA FUCKIN DRIVE AND YER GIVIN ME BULLSHIT
TRYNNA FUCKIN DRIVE AND YER GIVIN ME BULLSHIT

HOPE YOU FUCKING WRECK AND DIE

You'd think a fucking school bus would drive safer!
Track Name: Crash
Been awake too damn long
Hyped up on acid, makes me strong
But now the new day has begun
Too far, too late, the job is done

Twisting spiral vortex dreams
Nothing’s ever what it seems
Waking world of technical screams
Burning universe of screens

I’m gonna Crash back down into the black again
I’m gonna Crash back down into the black again
I’m gonna Crash back down into the black again
I’m gonna Crash back down into the black again

Crash!

Get back down...

Energy siphoned through brain
Circling round and down the drain
Causing madness mental strain
At the end, vow, ‘Never again,’

I’m gonna Crash back down into the black again
I’m gonna Crash back down into the black again
I’m gonna Crash back down into the black again
I’m gonna Crash back down into the black again

Crash!

...Oh God
I’m gonna fucking Crash

I’m gonna Crash back down into the black again
I’m gonna Crash back down into the black again
I’m gonna Crash back down into the black again
I’m gonna Crash back down into the black again

Twisting spiral vortex dreams
Nothing’s ever what it seems
Waking world of technical screams
Burning universe of screens
Track Name: Running On Fumes
Been up for 26 hours
25 to go
Coming too fast now
Better take it slow
Frustration sets in
Gotta give it a rest
Push through the pain
Gotta pass the test

You see...
I'm not the one here
Who can't control himself
I don't have a problem
I can quit any time I want
I don't need your forgiveness
Or your attitude
I just need my vices
They're gonna help me through

I
Did it again, did it again
Everything in moderation
Did it again, did it again
Got no cure for an addiction
Did it again, did it again
Everything in moderation
Did it again, did it again
Running on fumes

...Eat shit!

Don't tell me what I need to do
I wouldn't listen anyway
Just give me what I want (what I need) (need to feed)
Just to make it through the day

I
Did it again, did it again
Everything in moderation
Did it again, did it again
Got no cure for an addiction
Did it again, did it again
Everything in moderation
Did it again, did it again
Running on fumes

I don't need it
I don't need you

You see...
I'm not the one here
Who can't control himself
I don't have a problem
I can quit any time I want
I don't need your forgiveness
Or your fucking attitude
I just need my vices
They're gonna help me through

I
Did it again, did it again
Everything in moderation
Did it again, did it again
Got no cure for an addiction
Did it again, did it again
Everything in moderation
Did it again, did it again
Running on fumes

Did it again, did it again
Everything in moderation
Did it again, did it again
Got no cure for an addiction
Did it again, did it again
Everything in moderation
Did it again, did it again
Running on fumes
Track Name: Leech
Three years wasted in this hellhole
Feeling like I've lost control
Tired of being another scapegoat
Shove your words back down your throat
I've had enough of all your shame
All because of my last name
The generation's chosen son
I'll burn this place before I'm done

Burn this place to nothingness
As far as they know, I don't exist
Rip and tear their skin from bone
Finally I'm all alone

Stealing souls and leading lives
Deep depression, hatred, lies
I'm tired of every dime I make
Going to my landlord's car payment
The drug addicts who live upstairs
Who beat their kids and have affairs
But hey, you know what? I'll wish them well
'Cause if it exists, I'll see you in Hell

Shred this place to nothingness
As far as you know, I don't exist
Watch the cinders as they burn
I'll leave this place and I won't return

Tear this place to nothingness
Trash the contents to the abyss
All that's left is scorched black
I'm leaving and I won't come back

Leech your life
Die inside
Leech your life
Die tonight

Burn this place to nothingness
As far as they know, I don't exist
Rip and tear their skin from bone
Finally I'm all alone


Shred this place to nothingness
As far as you know, I don't exist
Watch the cinders as they burn
I'll leave this place and I won't return

Tear this place to nothingness
Trash the contents to the abyss
All that's left is scorched black
I'm leaving and I won't come back

Burn this place to nothingness
Fire brimstone emptiness
Rip and tear their skin from bone
Finally I'm all alone
Track Name: Bleed
In the darkness
I hear the voices
In the blackness
I hear the silence
The absence of colour
The dark canvas of blood
If I could stop it
I wonder if I should

Our blood is
Like water
Thin and weak like the solar rains
Our time has
Drawn closer
It's near the edge of pain
The threshold
The edge of
Dissolution in eternity
The scourge of
Damnations
Bleed them out as you would bleed for me

You will never know what I have felt
You will never be where I have been
All the universal signs are
Pointing to my eternal machine
The lifeblood of our race, divine
Shall be manipulated in time
For the souls of all the damned will rise
And ask the eternal question: WHY

Our blood is
Like water
Thin and weak like solar rains
Our time has
Drawn closer
It's near the edge of pain
The threshold
The edge of
Dissolution in eternity
The scourge of
Abominations
Bleed them out as you would bleed for me

WHO DARES TO USE MY POWER?!
WHO DARES TO USE MY FORCE?!
ANSWER NOW OR PAY THE PRICE
THE END OF YOUR FUCKING UNIVERSE

Our blood is
Like water
Thin and weak like the solar rains
Our time has
Drawn closer
It's near the edge of pain
The threshold
The edge of
Dissolution in eternity
The scourge of
Damnations
Bleed them out as you would bleed for me

Bleed them out as you would bleed for me
Bleed for me
Bleed them out as you would bleed for me
Bleed for me
Track Name: In A Bad Place
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Ashes
It starts with a spark
It grows to an ember
And like the phoenix down, it burns
Into the night

Cleansing fire
Pieces of my past
Burn away the old life
Turn it all to ash

And like the flames rising
I will start again
All my mistakes and promises
Washed away in the rain

Wash away the ashes
Wash away the ashes
Wash away the ashes
Wash away the ashes

(I won't bow down)

I will be unrecognizable
I will be infallible
I will be incorruptible
I will become God

Thrown into the fire
Memories of my past
Burn away the broken promise
Turn it all to ash

And like the fire burning
I will start again
All the hatred, lies and sins
Washed away in the rain

Wash away the ashes
Wash away the ashes
Wash away the ashes
Wash away the ashes

And now the ashes are burning bright
A flaming beacon in the night
Who are you to have your say
Watch me turn this night to brightest day

Wash away the ashes
Wash away the ashes
Wash away the ashes
Wash away the ashes

Wash them away
Wash them away
Wash them away
Wash them away
