Waspinator1998 Peace Through Tyranny shows an obvious lyrical and musical evolution from First Blood, yet still retains much of the same tone with lyrics primarily centering around giant robots, ancient deities, and monsters from beneath the waves. An essential part of any Onslaught Six collection. Favorite track: Lord Poseidon.

A. Keswick Master Of Puppets meets Transformers: The Movie. If this had been released in 1984, it would today be the world's greatest cult classic nerd thrash metal album. Solid jams about war and injustice, and also robots, with some great appearances by guest musicians including Stemage of Metroid Metal fame. Favorite track: WW3.

about

Originally, Peace Through Tyranny was supposed to be my first album ever released, in 2007. Some of the songs were written, and remain mostly unchanged, over five years later.

Now, after months of work, and with the help of lots of collaborators, I've made what I consider the greatest album I've ever done; a true expression of what Onslaught Six as a musical entity was always intended to be. When it hits, it hits hard, shredding faster and heavier than ever before. 12 tracks of mean machine goodness plus a whopping four bonus tracks (two originals and two covers), instrumental versions, demos dating back to 2008, desktop & phone wallpapers and more!

This album deals with all the injustices of this world, and the many fictional worlds that surround it. If it pissed me off or inspired me in some way, it's here.

When the alien robot overlords show up, when you surrender to their iron will, remember one thing: Peace Through Tyranny.

Track Name: Destron
Constant yell of chaingun fire
Blasting bodies apart
Armies marching one by one
Until the war will start
Lacerating blades of steel
Cut through their skin so fast
Underneath the flesh, revealed
The pretender's final gasp

Stormtrooper death squadron
Searching for the one
Homicidal death machines
Political assassination
Destron

Awaken on a new planet
Hungry for revenge
Searching for Energon
To use to our own ends
Seekers dropping silent death
Raining from the skies
Scorched black from years of war
The hour's come to die

Stormtrooper death squadron
Searching for the one
Suicidal death machines
Terrorist assassination
Destron

Burn the villages
Scorch the skies
Following our
Leader's lies
Track Name: WW3
A holy war of revelations
The ultimate weapon of devastation
Nuclear warfare prophecied one
A nine headed dragon on the seat of the throne

Their blood spills out onto the sand
Dying for a cause that they don't understand
What you called a soldier was someone's son
When all this is over, who cares who won?

World War Three

They'll draw this out for a hundred years
All in the name of the profiteers
More and more people die by the day
The war isn't over until they say

Unholy war of revelations
Put us on the path to devastation
What you called a soldier was someone's son
When the war is over, who cares who won?
Track Name: Peace Through Tyranny
Overbearing rulers of weak
Created a future, dark and bleak
Drafted now into the Third Great War
What the hell are we fighting for?
Tattered city is a battlefield
We use their men as human shields
We march on as thoughtless machines
To carry out our Führer's deeds

Peace Through Tyranny
Lesser creatures are the playthings of my will

The Senate's word is all we need
That's what the propoganda would have you believe
Listen to your Government
The corrupt man of Precedent
Now our captain orders to strike
Children killed and women raped
This crusade shall never cease
Persecution, fascist peace

Why do we fight?
Why do we lie?
Why do we kill?
Why do we die?

Totalitarian state
Created a future filled with hate
Ancient tribal warrior race
Once outcasted, now embraced
Systematic extermination
Through genocide, we rule the nation
Is this right? The will of God?
Or is this all a wicked facade?
Track Name: Wardick
You probe the foreign lands
In search of energy
Violate the sands
To go down in history
Stake your claim to fame
Your righteous crusade
America, the beautiful
May her colours never fade

Deface her every orifice
With your tanks and bombs and guns
Soldiers armed down to the teeth
You rape the land you claim to love
With your Wardick

Care not for the people
Only your selfish needs
To make a name out for yourself
Ensure your "legacy"
Raptors screaming overhead
Missiles firing fast
Nuclear tactical warheads
Eradication blast

All of it is just for profit
All of it is just for blood
All of it is just for power
People dying in the mud
STAND UP WHERE YOU FUCKING SHOULD!

Hateful politicians
Hide behind your desks
The only thing you care about
Is your name on the corporate checks
The revolution's coming
Your backs against the wall
You've outlived your usefulness
Get ready for the fall
Track Name: Dehumanizer
You find yourself a slave
To the madness of the grave
To the planets you shall hide
Till the enemies subside
With the roaring of the tiger
And the slashing of the blade
A flash of blinding thunder
Breaks through the barricade

My emotions still run high, even though I'm dead inside
So I try to realize, even though I'm not alive

Names across a screen
Without a meaning
Stay awake all night
To see the terrible fright
I gotta break out from these chains
I gotta shatter all these tubes
I gotta get back to my brain
I gotta run back to you

I try every night to find what it means
I search deep inside to find my humanity

I dare you to face me
I dare you to look me in the eyes
How can you bear to face me
When you know you're dead inside?

Dehumanizer
Track Name: Gouryujinn
Metal claws that pierce the sky
Sees through its burning eyes
Lets out its atomic scream
Cause the end of everything

Dragon blood and chosen one
Your judgement has just begun
You will suffer for your sins
At the hands of Gouryujinn
Metal skin and armour strong
This conflict will not last long
He will never let you win
Feel the wrath of Gouryujinn

Swims amongst the Earthen seas
Terrorizer, killing dreams
Emerges from the barren depths
Ancient power, bringing death

Eternal darkness eclipses light
And you will bow before its might
Twisted tale of madness ends
So it shall begin again

Endless
Immortal
Infinite
Eternal
Track Name: Lord Poseidon
We came from Troy victorious
We were following Odysseus
We murdered the God's Cyclopean son
Incur the wrath of the ancient one
We should've gave an offering
Sacrificed someone, something
The Oracles foretold of this
Our destiny is calling us
Undersea, he waits us out
Trident scepter, bleeding snout
Immortal being, armoured threat
Coming now to collect his debt

Lord Poseidon, God of sea
Lord Poseidon, pray to me

Giving things to their evil God
The sacrifice, a ritual facade
They offer virgins to their deity
They drown their horses in the sea
They quickly give up everything
Worthless prayers, sirens sing

Lord Poseidon, God of sea
Lord Poseidon, bow to me

Whirlpools blast into the sky
As typhoons breathe howling cries
The tidal waves crash on and on
Wrath of the Gods strike 'till we're gone
Blood is thicker than the water
Marching forward to the slaughter
Candles burning down to wicks
Bodies crossing river Styx
Blind religions cannot see
Destiny is calling me
Track Name: Weaponlord
Warriors clash on the battlefield
Weapons smashing into shields
Axes swiftly splitting skulls
Is this all that a man does?

Slaves struggle in the coliseum
Battling other men for their freedom
Gladiators from ancient tribes
It's their fate that the steel decides

Weaponlord

Fighters come from across the land
To enter combat, blades in their hands
The Old Ones possess their minds
Their destiny has been decided

Flesh and bone against the steel
The blood spills against their will
These warriors from ancient times
It's their fate that the steel decides

Weaponlord (It's their fate that the steel decides)

Bane; The bane of existence
Talazia; Warrior princess
Divada; Powerful sorceress
Weaponlord
Korr; Unmatched swordsman
Jentai; Warrior queen
Zorn; Demon theif
Weaponlord
Track Name: Recognizer
It gets to the point where you don't care anymore

Bleeding on the edge of uncertainty
Fleeing from the feelings of the dark monotony
Got to break out from the cage (from the rage)
From the bleak and the black and the pain

Deifier Rectifier Crucifier Recognizer
Realizer Compromiser Agonizer Recognizer

Sociopathy is the only way, I say
Fuck your society anyway
I don't need your shit, I don't need your lies
I don't need anyone to keep me alive

I AM THE RECOGNIZER
AND I WILL RECOGNIZE
I AM THE CRUCIFIER
AND I WILL CRUCIFY
I AM THE DEIFIER
AND I WILL DEIFY
I AM THE RECOGNIZER
SO YOU BETTER RECOGNIZE!

SO
FUCK IT! Say it again, baby
FUCK IT! Play it again, Johnny
FUCK IT! Say it again, baby
FUCK IT!
Track Name: Dead Or Alive
In the ruins of Old Detroit
A man walks through the wreckage
With cybernetic metal muscles
And a deadly cache of weapons

Judges your actions instantaneously
Through his mental CPU
When he sets his sights on you
What are you gonna do?

Hyperviolent criminals rule everything you see
But they scatter when they hear the words...

Dead or alive, you're coming with me
I was programmed by OCP
Dead or alive, you're coming with me
I follow my instructions to the T
Dead or alive, you're coming with me
If I kill enough, maybe they will see
That Dead or alive...you're coming with me

They say that he is the future now
The government consumes the past
But underground the resistance forms
Numbers rising fast

They broadcast stolen information
And what they think they know
They think their actions are resistance
It's just another form of control

Liberate the people from this violent regime
They cannot wait to hear those words...

DIRECTIVE ONE:SERVE THE PUBLIC TRUST
DIRECTIVE TWO:PROTECT THE INNOCENT
DIRECTIVE THREE:UPHOLD THE LAW
UPHOLD THE FUCKING LAW!
Track Name: Holier Than Thou
I claim to be your savior
Sent here from up above
I ask for your devotion
Your trust and all your love
I'll never speak a falsehood
I am your closest friend
My followers are loyal
Until the bitter end

My word is your religion
My image is your God
I saved you from the squaller
I saved you from the sod
Your life will fill with riches
You'll do just as I say
But once you are not useful
You'll meet your judgement day

They'll drag my name through trenches
They'll burn me at the cross
But without my guidance
They're blind and they are lost

Holier Than Thou (You'll do just as I say)
Holier Than Thou (Meet your judgement day)
Holier Than Thou (I am your closest friend)
Holier Than Thou (Until the bitter end)

I'll tell you it's His Mission
But really, it's my own
My truth is all that matters
Dead to me, if you oppose
And my star will burn the brightest
A diamond in the sky
They're blind outside my power
Bow down to me or die

They'll drag my name through trenches
They'll burn me at the cross
But without my guidance
They're blind and they are lost

Holier Than Thou (A diamond in the sky)
Holier Than Thou (Bow down to me or die)
Holier Than Thou (But really, it's my own)
Holier Than Thou (Dead to me, if you oppose)


I'll wave my hand and all you've known
Will kneel before me at my throne
Prove your faith in me, my son
I'll raise you up when all is done

I'll wave my hand and all you've known
Will kneel before me at my throne
Prove your faith in me, my son
I'll raise you up when all is none
