ascetic 06:28
ascetic tears that never seem to run dry in a world thats close to wreck itself. driven only by hate, everything else has been taken. hopes, dreams, ambitions destroyed by your conventions. this mundane condition. loss of breath. i am lacking any optimism. admitting defeat against your definition of emotionality. my engine is the wrong idea your following blindly. a precedence tending to destroy. we will all perish. all i got is my black heart and my wrath to be set free. Expl.: Excluding everything useless within the context of society appears to be a common humyn strategy. Out of sight. Out of mind. Are we nothing more than redundant byproducts of this fast-paced insanity and blinded by progress? Or still in control of our potentials? Thoughts inspired by Zygmunt Bauman
entropie 05:38
entropie i seeked light in darkness while i found death in life, we are free to choose our destinations but destined to follow the given paths, civilized freedom is just one more fucking compromise that keeps us separated in your coded systems, you choke, i breathe, you cry, i release, is this cure, are we fortuned, our common relief, another wasted moment within this sea of shit, still haunted by yesterdays dreams we all seem to hate so passionate, still threatened by the urge of change, another tyrant that claims the throne, still nothing changes, whilst looking at our miserable lives time still moves on, would it be like all of this never happened? expl: us humyns are bound by the lie of taking advantage through every given possibility in our 21st century society. however those possibilities are limited. we're not free to choose our sexual orientation or gender. we're separated as a result of our origins, social or financial backgrounds. we're forced to yield to this common idea of efficiency. and on the other hand any effort of emancipation is going to be disabled in many repressive actions through isolating laws or violent reactions from different humyn macrocosms. this is not about changing society at once. or changing laws or governments or fighting cops. it's about unterstanding the mechanisms we're dealing with each day and the effort to change individually while reflecting the misconceptions that surround us. entropy explains somehow the disorder of a system. a system which seems to be limited and classifies into black or white patterns. there is neither black nor white.
circles 02:33
circles looks like this is another endless moment, where i'm crushed by the weight of the real face of humanity.... and when the smoke has cleared there's one last chant which fills the hole inside my chest, starving, begging, this is a call for retaliation, a generation in abandon blinded by ignorance, yet i evolve into a different direction, we are what we are, all alone in the end, and this is just another version of me, cause the spirit of dead affairs impends over us and the seas, its breath is portentous, and while i look at you i say to myself, everything is fine, everything is falling apart expl.: even if we share the dearest wish for peace of mind there's too much we've sacrificed or are still sacrificing. no entrepreneur can enhance the status of wage-labour. no status can fill the vastness inside of many. vastness conquers resilient thoughts we suffer each day as well as we create suffering. adjusting in vain. there is no such thing like innocence. just different levels of responsibility.
the faceless 02:35
the faceless the hopeless revolt against their perspectives, floating away with the rain, we're putting lives at stake, just for the sake of ourselves, erasing existences, civilization is madness
patterns & dreamers.... do you still remember those phrases in the reign of bitterness, all of us seemed isolated, with hearts so heavy and minds so empty, silenced and disconnected from each other, yet strong enough to pervade our inmost wishes it's time to light these sparks again in times of war, it’s time to draw the line and this is the reason why we accept this state of breathtaking moments, some patterns might be out of reach and there's still enough to achieve but in my heart i close every gap just to watch them getting torn apart again... it feels like choking on and we hope righteous ones will drown in their own piss
seasons of separation this life has been torn apart at the night your idea was born, i won't take part in this ridiculous farce, don't ask for sorrow now, don't ask for hope, the hour of contempt in the midst of what you call a depression, the world is on its knees, when ambition left, coldness was its final gift, and we're watching ourselves choking within this faint conclusion, craving for infinite pleasure, i'm embracing the virus in this sea of shattered images, if this is your idea of revolution better count me out, you live on with your perfectly designed lives, greed is rising. i keep on falling
herzberge 02:01
herzberge mental death comes with progress, we are all in this together and i don't care how many times you've rightened the wrongs, these lives are in shambles and mostly ignored, we only fear the lack of convenience, erasing existences, where's appreciation? i try to break free, i've seen the fallen, those who failed, i've made those decisions for myself, you preach rejection from this constructed swamp of false morality, i try to break free, my life, my way
conditio humana in the name of the restless, we praise the demons inside of us, the byproducts of this diseased society, trapped in self-estrangement, you've buried the corpses of your last memories, and while we dance at the memorial there's another conclusion been made, a last wish to calm the fire, like the last breath, on the deathbed we praise the demons inside of us
shallow 03:08
shallow i taste defeat, breathless i'm swallowed by grief, live is moving, burns like salt into vast flesh, we were abandoned within this state of trust, haunted, forever conquered, the death of your warmth is like a spreading disease, poisoned souls, farewell to the broken-hearted, farewell to the rejected, i never took this peace for granted, farewell, my dear
frailty 02:34
frailty behind these masks we are you and we desire to end our lives, all those dreams have been laid to waste, open arms are releasing these times of fear, we've been numbed by anxiety, still dwelling in misery, liberating ourselves each day, still dwelling in misery, reveal this state of suffering
howl 02:30
another dead ends anthem countless tragedies, these moments we once owned, taken away by all those leeches, created humane misery, negotiating within concrete graves and dark memories, we're founding even more benefits for this modern world and the screams of so many tortured souls will never be heard. raped, enslaved, smothered until we die, i forgot to try ignoring all the suffering, and this is the burden we all bear on our fucking shoulders, the burden which is tearing our consciousness apart, we are walking on this path and this path is soaked with blood, there might be a spark of hope but it dies with every single day in this demise expl: we're all sharing the same guilt when it comes to find any culprit who is responsible for the humane and environmental messes we're forced to live in. no matter how much organic food we're buying and eating. how many times we're trying to fight the unjusticeness in this world. there's always another side that's effected negatively by our own hands.
peripheral 02:44
peripheral where's the cure for such unpleasant dreams of decline, as we admire the vultures of demise there's no chance to express these moments of disapproval. we've commited ourselves to this catalyst, and whilst the daggers are drawn i am nothing more than i used to be, what have we become, dear friend, this chosen path is just another profane decision, another useless scratch, surfacing reality needs to be an inner revolution, no matter how many nights we've wasted dreaming of a better tomorrow, turn them into something real, to make a change


ANCST "in turmoil" LP
vendetta records # 94


released December 20, 2014

"A compilation of Ancst‘s efforts, In Turmoil, is a scathing and tragic experience projected through fierce, melodic black metal spattered with crust; the likes of which are only born from the cold depths of Germany.

Ancst is a collective from Germany with a lyrical focus on social and politically ‘left’ topics as well as personal struggle.

The guitar work of multi-instrumentalist Tom, also a member of Henry Fonda, is anchored in steady, pounding tremolos, reminiscent of early Amon Amarth shrouded in thrashy, black crust. This is a perfect complement to the relentless, blasting, pattering kit and Torsten’s crusty, dry shrieks leading each track’s attack. Similarities to the roar of Protestant’s Cory von Bohlen or ex-Fall of Efrafa/Lightbearer singer Lee Husher could be applied here.

in turmoil features the "humane condition"EP", the songs from the splits with hiveburner, smutecni slavnost, the first demo, some compilation tracks and one unreleased track"
