Héctor Hurtado Grooscors Before female singers took by storm the stage of the heavy scene, there was Chained Lace with Cheri Blade. This is some obscure mid 80's doom metal for fans of the Maryland doom scene.

Luke Flail I can't get over over unique and heavy this release is. punk influence female fronted heavy epic doom! Favorite track: Dismembered.

Lute FP A dash of Motorhead, a sprinkle of early Motley Cru and a whole lotta girl-punk-rock. Apparently put out in the mid-80s and just re-issued, I believe this is a compilation of a demo and debut album. You can hear the grittier sound of the demo, which in fact I think I prefer. Cool rockin' music.

Roland Don Doom Take a seat in the time-machine and go back to the year 1985 for some old shool D.C. doom metal with a female singer!

Last Chance 02:27
Last Chance Words C. Bacon Music A. Morris. You’re diggin’ your grave And you don’t care You don’t care if you’re dyin’ You don’t care if the world stands still Cause soon you’ll be left there crying (Chorus) Because everything you want You can’t obtain Even if it strikes your desire Everything you want is all in vain Now you want to admire ???? and you don’t see You don’t see who stands behind you You better not leave without a look There’ll be no one left to find you (Repeat Chorus x2) The days are turning into nights The bright days are behind you You better not leave without a look There’ll be no where left to find you I told you once and I’ve told you twice Don’t take it all for granted Now this is your last chance my friend Your last chance on the planet (Repeat Chorus)

Prophet of Doom Music and lyrics N. Lawson, Decomposed Music. Try to take a look inside your empty mind What you discover might scare you to death Take a little time, take a trip with me Prophet of doom’s gonna make you see You’re ridin’ on a coaster You’re spinning on your bed The way you live honey You’d be better off dead You’d be better off dead I don’t see you, you can’t see me I won’t be caught in your demise It was too late, eyes could see Prophet’s getting closer Listening to your lies Never, never, never Never will you find Ignorance, Idiocy In your empty mind You got an empty mind Yearn, turning, burning Skin rots away The prophet was calling But death just turns away I can out run the prophet of doom I can’t see from the bodies of decay I can’t overcome this feeling of gloom Nuclear explosion is going to blow us all away (Repeat) I don’t see you, you can’t see me I won’t be caught, in your demise It was too late, eyes could see The prophet’s getting closer now Licking at your thighs Never, never, never Never will you find The ignorance and the idiocy In your empty mind You got an empty mind Yearn, turning, burning Skin rots away The prophet was calling But death just turns away Try to take a look inside your empty mind What you discover might scare you to death Take a little time, take a trip with me Prophet of doom won’t wait you see You’re spinning on your bed The way you live honey, You’d be better off dead You’d be better off dead

Black Widow 03:11
Black Widow Words C. Bacon Music A. Morris. My momma she was a sacrifice And my father he’s a beast And I have no use for anyone Well someone call the priest The Priest he came runnin’ He wants to save my wicked soul I feel the footsteps closing in And I see the darkness gone I know you feel dread As I spin my web I spin all this flesh It’s my last request Black Widow Yeah Black Widow I’m the daughter of darkness You know it feels alright I’m the daughter of darkness I only come out at night I know you feel dread As I spin my web I spin only flesh It’s my last request Black Widow Yeah Black Widow (Repeat)

Morbid Fascination Words and music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music. When fascination takes you And leads you to the door You wonder if your mind can survive You bring the violence to the floor And when the beginning is near At the end only fear You take it all away A silent ritual play You’re cryin’ in the dark You must pass the silent scream And of course I never Never could find a way Life’s blood flows so easily At the end of a perfect day You take it all away A silent ritual play You’re cryin’ in the dark You must pass the silent scream The unspoken rage Take a curious step down They’re laughing at you They seem to think they’ve found Someone they can push off Someone to take the blame Ah what’s one more head … More or less They all come off the same You cannot take advantage There’s no place left to run And one day you’ll pay You’re gonna pay for all your fun So when the bloodletting happens And I know that it will Some place the band will like Finally, deadly, still So the fascination takes you Some place far away Life’s blood flows so easily At the end of a perfect day

CAN’T CLOSE YOUR EYES Words and Music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music. You can’t close your eyes And you can’t sleep tonight You’re running scared honey Cuz you know I’ll be outta sight You took your chains of love And wrapped them tight around me But surprise little lady I took a chance and now I’m free Never gonna put a chain on me Not a chance when I wanna be free Never gonna get me Under your lock and key (Chorus) Can’t close your eyes Can’t close your eyes I’ll be slippin’ away I’ll be gone today You never, never gave me … bitch Never gave me what I need I gave you a warning honey But you didn’t pay no heed Pay off is coming bitch I found a few new friends Style of playing changed But I always get it in the end Chorus I’m cruising round the same old ground again I know what I want and I’ll pay for it in the end Like a finely tuned machine I need to keep myself on the run Head splitting open Brains boiling in the sun (Repeat Chorus)

Too much, too soon Words C. Bacon Music A. Morris Well you’re so fast You can’t grab hold A flash of lightening And the stories told You’re all-night Saturday Didn’t last long You better take a chance Even if it’s wrong It’s too much, too soon Next stop It’s gonna be the moon Too much and it’s too soon This time I think we all lose In place of dreams your nightmare glow Telling secrets you don’t know It’s too much, it’s too soon Next stop it’s gonna be the moon Too much and it’s too soon This time I think we all lose Never trust in words they say Because on your mind they’ll surely play Your mind is screaming to be free Insane is what you fear you’ll be It’s all too much It’s too soon Next stop It’s gonna be the moon Too much, it’s way too soon Next time you lose

My life can take on meaning

Burnt Offerings Words C. Bacon Music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music. Take a look around you Tell me what you see What you got to offer What are you offering me?

Exterminence 07:13
Exterminence Words C. Bacon Music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music. Beware the children, we’re not the power We’ve grown old in this stone cold tower In full swing, a revolution In a world where there is no solution The messages is clear, your time is near You’ve got nothing left, not even fear Let me wake up in someone else’s dream Things aren’t always what they seem to be He’s taken your mind, he set you free Helter Skelter it seems right You’re wondering wild on hot summer night You swim in blood, that’s what they say You seeking vengeance sounds of the dead There is no sentence to cure their ills They’re already dead, nothing left to kill Let me wake up in someone else’s dream Things aren’t always what they seem to be You take your life, and then you’ll be free Beware the children, we’re not the power We’ve grown old in this stone cold tower In full swing, a revolution In a world where there is no solution The messages is clear, your time is near You’ve got nothing left, not even fear Let me wake up in someone else’s dream Things aren’t always what they seem to be He’s taken my life, he set me free
12.
You’ Crying Now Words and music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music.

13.
Taking Me Down Words and music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music. Lying, stealing, Lies told with no feeling You’re pulling me down Dragging me down You’re taking, not giving My life is not worth living You’re pulling me down Dragging me down Lying, stealing Lies told with no feeling You’re pulling me down Dragging me down Taking, not giving My life is not worth living You’re pulling me down Dragging me down I don’t know why You like tearing me down Spending your whole life Dragging me down I don’t know why You love taking me down Spending your whole life Just dragging me down Falling not landing You’re habit to demanding You’re pushing me down Dragging me down Too long, your way Go away, I’m afraid it’s too late You’re pushing me down Dragging me down Falling, not landing You’re life is to demanding You’re pushing me down Dragging me down Too long, your way I won’t pray it’s too late You’re pushing me down Dragging me down (Repeat Chorus)

Fortress 05:17
Fortress Words and Music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music. Alone I set in my castle in the sky Cold black darkness is the night I’m by myself in my fortress It’s all wrong, I nothing’s right And I can’t take all this loneliness Following me although my life Oh how I’m missing your sweet Sweet caress You took it all, you took my life The years creep by and dying But my heart is hurtin’ still I had it all but I let it get away Crying eyes, I’ve got shattered will
15.
You Never Stop Why you never stop, I’ll never know It’s useless crying, I can’t let go. I listen to reason, I must be insane Because I’ll never win at your little game You’re always changing the rules all around I can’t give up, you’re all over town There’s no explaining I don’t need to know why I don’t want to keep you I don’t want to cry How long can we keep on changing our parts You’re ripping my mind, tearing my heart You say you love me, but I’ll never know What’s inside you, you’re getting so cold 3x – You never stop Running your course you said that it’s true It’s all up and down, it’s falling on you You don’t really know me, you never will You don’t give a damn, it’s part of the thrill If there was a chance if only a way I’d take you in, I’d make you pay And then when you’re changing, you’re turning your head I don’t care if you’re living or dead Why you never stop, I’ll never know You’re reaching for something, don’t let it show It’s coming down, it’s moving so fast Next thing you know, you’ll be part of my past 3x – You never stop Lead Repeat first verse
16.
Forever and a Day Words and Music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music. Within the joy of earthly pleasures Problems may arise Your guilt is all consuming You don’t see it with your eyes Still you satisfy your hunger A forbidden path you’ll stray You cannot hide all your lies Forever and a day Many people talk of God as love But their actions prove a lie I know I believe in something But the questions fill my mind If only I could talk to you And set my questions free To wonder is a waste of my life Just give my soul the key Justifying homicide There is a reason for the kill I could probably do it myself If I only had the will Until I satisfy my hunger I’d let passion lead me away And I’d be one within your world Forever and a day You know I never really had a doubt As to which way you’d go It didn’t really take much thought Somehow I seemed to know You always said do what you want You’re going to anyway You left no room for changing, Forever and a day
