THE METAL REVIEW - STORM KING "AURA OF FAILURE"
Dec 3, 2010

WELL FOLKS WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS ANOTHER MIGHTY FINE SLAB OF METAL FROM PENNSYLVANIA.HAVING READ THAT WHEN THESE GUYS STARTED OUT THEIR SOUND WAS SLOWER AND MORE DOOM ORIENTED. ONE CAN ONLY IMAGINE THEIR SOUND THEN AS COMPARED TO THIS LATEST OFFERING.IF YOUR LOOKING FOR METAL WITH HAPPY VIBES THEN I SUGGEST YOU WALK AWAY.WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS A PLATTER DRENCHED IN PURE CHAOS. " AURA OF FAILURE " WILL LEAVE EVEN THE HAPPIEST OF PEOPLE FEELING THAT THEY HAVE BEEN WASHED UPON THE SHORES OF LIFE AS A PIECE OF MERE FLOTSAM.WITH OLD SCHOOL THRASH MOMENTS AND SOME OCCASIONAL BLAST BEATS YOUR LEFT FOR DEAD UNTIL SOME PUNISHING BASS LINES TAKE YOU FOR ANOTHER SPIN AROUND THIS BIG BALL OF DIRT WE CALL HOME.THE GUITAR WORK ON DISPLAY HERE IS WONDEROUS WITH A KILLER RHYTHM SECTION AND CLEAN, NOT OVERLY DISTORTED LEADS.ALL THE VOCALS ARE VERY NOTEWORTHY WITH A HINT OF OPETH YET MAINTAINING ORIGINALITY,NO COPY CATS HERE.GIVING A NOD TO THE OLD SCHOOL STORM KING PLAYS A COVER OF NUCLEAR ASSULT'S " CRITICAL MASS " ON THIS RELEASE.I HAD THE CHANCE TO CATCH THIS BAND LIVE NOT SO LONG AGO AND NOT HAVING DONE SO HERE I SIT IN MY " AURA OF FAILURE ". A WELL PRODUCED MUST HAVE FOR ALL THRASHERS AND BANGERS.

RATING-91.5

Track Name: Intro
Instrumental
Track Name: Aura of Failure
Yesterday’s future falls short
Of victory, nothing to report
What used to be a certainty
Is now just an obscurity
Once it was all so clear
Before the plans. Before the fear
Now everything is black
Everything is used
Everything is broken
Everything is abused

I loathe every part of my life
From the very start
Except for what is here
Crumbling apart
I look inside to reflect
And I see I hate that guy
I hope he fucking dies
I hope he fucking dies

Guilt. Remorse
Sorrow. Isolation
Worthlessness. Misanthropy
Self-loathing. Desperation

I was hoping someday
This would all go away
But it lingers on and on while
All the rest of hope is gone

We continue endlessly relentless
A new beginning
Another lost soul

It’s always the same
Another line. Another way
Aura of failure
Bitterness and decay

Animosity. Isolation
Contempt and devastation
If everything is dead
When will it end?
Track Name: Curse of the Worthless Class
You do your best to fit the part
You wear it well. You work so hard
Where does it end?
What does it get you?
A broken home. Bulletproof ego
How far you’ll push
To feed the lie. To hide the truth
You are nothing

Piling on a thousand layers of
Panic and distress
Guilt and desperation wrap
Themselves around your neck
Talons & teeth on pterodactyl wings
Swooping from the sky to
Destroy the machine

Sick and tired of pathetic excuses
How about something in
The way of producing
Nerves have all been frayed by you
There’s only so much I can do

Embrace your ethics as they
Smother out your life
Love doesn’t conquer all
Clouds don’t have silver linings
See for yourself that
There’s nothing here for you
Teeth of a cogwheel
Bite. Chew.
Track Name: Critical Mass (Nuclear Assault)
...and ruins will be all that's left
