NECROPIA- BRUTAL MUSIC FOR BRUTAL PEOPLE!!!

LAID TO WASTE is an Extreme METAL album from the Augusta, Maine USA band NECROPIA. Originally created around 2003.

Laid To Waste is the EXTREME METAL born from the ashes of black death/thrash bands Drugaskan & Hellstorm. Jim Ross joined the band around 2004, combining forces with Dan Paulin; aimed to create a BRUTAL DEATH METAL band. The theme "FASTER & MORE INTENSE" was the driving force behind the rise of this unrelenting onslaught of blasting METAL!!!
The song "Laid To Waste", as well as most of the other songs were taken from the former bands material- but underwent a metamorphosis as the level of intensity, speed, and brutality increased to a decimating new level. The music quickly became a monster; a FORCE to be reckoned with.
At first glance, or a quick listen---it's easy to overlook the sheer physical brutality of this music. As the band found it quite impossible to find musicians to perform these songs. Where a lot of modern (NOW just as well as THEN) bands were content to riff along to simple grooves, less demanding, and a more relaxed style of Death Metal...NECROPIA maintained the BRUTAL ATTACK---that need for speed and unfiltered aggression---FASTER & MORE INTENSE...not that candy-ass, trendy, pop-metal that waters down so much of the METAL industry.
Along with that unyielding approach to their music came the in-ability to keep a band together. Jake Freeman & Steve Gagne both gave it hell behind the drum kit, and the band was able to play a few shows LIVE. There were other musicians who had tried out,,,but none could really make it happen consistently at that level of physical intensity. So,,, after a few years the band dissolved.
Before the band called it quits...there were attempts to record this uniquely abrasive music, but due to technical issues & gear failure...crucial tracks, and material were lost, unfixable--- at that point it seemed Necropia itself had been Laid To Waste.
In the years to come there were a few attempts to rebuild the project,,,but to no avail,,, Then a few years back it was decided to give it one final push towards completion. And after a LOT of hard work and dedication to this brutal cause--- Necropia has finally come to fruition!!! As the LAID TO WASTE album has finally been inducted into the annals of Extreme METAL history- and the legacy of NECROPIA- will be branded deep into the heart of the underground, ONCE & FOR ALL TIMES!!!!!!!!! LONG LIVE NECROPIA!!!!!!!!!
HAIL BRUTAL FUCKING DEATH METAL!!!!!!!!! -l- -l- -l- \m/x\m/

(solo Dan*)

will you cut yourself for me, or shall i bleed for you?
do i know who you are? are these words you say the truth?
manipulate by lies and deceit, face value is illusion
dreams are crushed to a soulless pulp, leaving only confusion

INFECTED- this cancerous plague called society
CRAWLING- choking down force fed insanity
INFECTED- this cancerous plague called society
CRAWLING- choking down force fed insanity

social slaves, tormenting games, spewing empty words
faith in chaos spreads like disease, the bleeding of the soul
disillusioned idealism, trapped in the walls of sick human flesh
dissected endlessly, from the eyes of inhumanity


(solo Jim*)

will you cut yourself for me? I've already bled for you
I know just what you are, these lies are nothing new
years of disgust, lifetimes in vain, wading through empty dreams
agonized existence we live, underlying the facade that we see
I WILL FUCKING KILL YOU
Track Name: Carnivorous
CARNIVOROUS
In for the kill
In a time long go evil reigned supreme
Ruling the earth and sky
In the dark ages
The earth spewed forth the beast

Risen from the dead to crush all
Crush all

In a time long ago
Death across the land
The earth gave birth
To a new world

Ancient world
Soon to be dead
They would fall
Track Name: Mesmerized By Degeneration
there are no lyrics for Mesmerized By Degeneration... but if there were lyrics they might be something like this:

perversity of the flesh
explicit gore- immense transfixion by cadavaric decay
dismembered, disemboweled
corrugated lacerations on the flesh
blood soaked entrails engulfing fetal remains
vindictive savagery
perversity of the oppressed and demented
supplicating conceptions
that of primordial solecism
basking in rotting meat
Track Name: Pledge For Death
PLEDGE FOR DEATH
rise above your enemies
massive fire power
engage the dance of death
you are never to return
the crews are living dead
above the heavens is hell
defeat is not an option
crush the imperial forces
fight or die, we've come to kill
in the night, flying fortress

--bombs are dropping
cities are burning
hell breaks loose
children are dying, mothers are crying
the onslaught continues---
(solo Jim*)
--bombs are dropping
cities are burning
hell breaks loose
children are dying, mothers are crying
the onslaught continues---
(solo Jim*)

sweating as i gaze across the sky
breathing heavy as i line up sight
squeezing the trigger- zeros in
the night blazes with fire

--bombs are dropping
cities are burning
hell breaks loose
children are dying, mothers are crying
the onslaught continues---
(solo Jim*)
--bombs are dropping
cities are burning
hell breaks loose
children are dying, mothers are crying
the onslaught continues---
Track Name: Servants Of Atrocity
SERVANTS OF ATROCITY
shadows rise across the stones
satanic minds remained obscured
the sun fades to night
carve the pentagram in dirt

the power to kill upon thought
my enemies die from inside
your flesh is charred and burned
by my power you will learn

incinerate you with my mind- greatest gift of all time
deadly gaze in my eyes- telekinesis power rise

Satan taught me well- you are trapped in this hell
by the gods you are damned as your life is in my hands

in this deadly revival
you are summoned to hell
a soul in psychosis dementia

deceived by the devil
the price you have to pay
synthetically powered by chemicals of destruction









~~~in the shadow of the black cloud
upon the wind- fleets over the earth
the wells of knowledge were drank dry
and still she thirsted -l- -l- -l-
Track Name: Horrid Butchery
HORRID BUTCHERY
(solo Dan*)
possessed by the underworld
i feel power from death
the evil surges in my veins
as i complete ultra morphus
deadly devices of pure hell
the torture of 1000 demons
i sacrifice your last life
for my personal endeavors

Eternal

resist? i ride the demons
evil will prevail
execute the blood eternal
pure death ----------

the vibe of underworld
is all i gain
beyond control
for this life

feeding on human flesh
you're human bait-----
your soul is lost--- in passage
*****demons rise in your mind

I
devour
your
weak soul
(solo Dan*)
Track Name: 30 Tyrants
30 TYRANTS
The fear of man
across the land
into eternal skies
Rule with an iron fist
Through you I exist
This day you will die

Slaughter- Control- Uprise
Slaughter- Control- Uprise

30 men died
30 men deceived
They were brought here to die
30 men died
30 wives cried
As their lives were taken
with the axe

(solo Jim*)
The axe

The fear of man
across the land
into eternal skies
Rule with an iron fist
Through you I exist
This day you will die

Slaughter- Control- Uprise
Track Name: Laid To Waste
LAID TO WASTE (aka ripped to shreds)
Death is in the air
Deadly sounds arise
On this day you will die
Under the rubble
nuclear zombies crawl
Speed metal attack
Necropia crushes all

Our world is laid to waste
A dark and horrid place
Extreme metal sound
Fallout has begun
Nuclear winter clouds
Black out the sun
The earth is frozen
Paid the cost
Dreams are broken
All is lost

Our world is laid to waste
A dark and horrid place
(solo Dan*)

Dawn of the dead age
Atomic chariots ride
Across these dead lands
On beams of light
Drugaskin rises
Out of the Hellstorm
On this day metal is born

Our world is laid to waste
A dark and horrid place
(solo Jim*)
Track Name: Trinity Of Darkness
TRINITY OF DARKNESS
(solo Jim*)
on a rage of fury, I sense your fear
time will reveal, my vengeance is near

Trinity- of the darkness
Trinity- of the dying

death is all around
you're eulogy is scribed
on the headstones surface
shallow is your life
deep is your grave
(solo Jim*)

crushing, maiming, & smashing
thrashing, violently stabbing
crushing maiming and slashing
thrashing, violently stabbing
(solo Dan*)
(solo Jim*)
(soloDan*)
(solo Jim*)

in a pool of blood
lying on the floor
the taste of victory
is as sweet as blood
Track Name: Ophiuchus
OPHIUCHUS
in the dead of night
beyond the edge of time
transcending dimensions
for the sins of mankind

in the black of night
obscured by dust and light
at one with all that's right
on your journey in the field

(solo Jim*)
possession of time
void everlasting
theory in practice

possession of time
void everlasting
theory in practice
(solo Jim*)

of untold divine-
untold divine

beyond the edge of trees
i look up at the moon
and ponder my existence
to the haunting of the doom

day by day goes by
the stars are one with us
the same as lost time
as i pass through the field

there is no god
blackness falls
there is no god
darkness covers the earth
(solo Jim*)
the cosmic light that binds us
Track Name: Confined To Oblivion
