Maxrock First time I saw you guys at a festival I liked what I heard and the passion I saw. A year or so later I was lucky to get all this compressed into a much smaller venue where I could really feel the emotion and effort in every song right in my face. It was awesome. Favorite track: The Magician.

Colin M. "The Fool" sees OHHMS take a natural step forward from the great "Cold," presenting their most dynamic and complete offering to date. Favorite track: The Hanged Man.

James Williams Wait, slow down, I just finished having my mind blown by Izah's last album. I mean...fuck. I don't think I can accurately describe this beast of a record. It's like what Mastodon's more straightforward output would sound like as played by a pissed-off Neurosis, but with the love child of Brett Campbell and Lemmy Kilmister on lead vocals, all with a Michael Gira ballad stuck in there somewhere...but it's also nothing like any of that bullshit I just spouted. God-diggity-dammit. I, uh...I'm...sheesh. Just fuckin' buy it, okay? Okay. Favorite track: The Hierophant.

Track Name: The Magician
I hear them calling – Of this I can’t deny
I’ll wait until the trial
So many bright lights – Chemical architects
Live within the lie

They bought a genius – A cog to innovate
To illustrate the future
A man of science – enough to test the faith
Our very faith in man

I won’t contribute to an anecdote you convolute
From the bedridden on the new statute to the insecure and the destitute They all suffer – they are all suffering.
Suffer – in pain - suffering

We’ve broken all we can
We’ve opened up the scab
With no more compromise
We’ll settle for the past
And a future that won’t last
If the present doesn’t hurt.

Magician
Track Name: The Hanged Man
You walked in – I moved out
To the patriots –A play on dead hearts
This rumour, your tumour, your hanging noose, its pride. (An express insider)

You walked in – I moved out
We scurry like rats – its fact that’s how you paint us
An institution of delusion en masse – a crass blame game of race against race.

Hey – What was that you say?
Does climate change exist?
1 in 5 Britons will be ethnics

Hey – so here’s The Truth
After 27 years in
In The gates of hell
*Some fans – Picked the pockets of victims
*Some Fans – Urinated on the brave cops
*Some fans – beat up PC he was
Giving Kiss Of life"

Hey – that game you play
That spite and hate
Won’t take the fear away

We know you hide behind the printed word
And my commitment to your dying fleet
Is to help ignite these flames of hope
So with accelerant we can sing
You'll burn with kerosene
You'll burn with kerosene
You'll burn with kerosene
You'll burn with kerosene

You are not my star
You are not my sun
You are not my mail
You are my arson

You are not my star
You are not my sun
You are not my mail
You are a sham - The hanged man
Track Name: The World
I felt this first
Embraced this curse
It’s not a shot in the dark – Not a flame, not a spark. It’s fire.
Now I’m burning it down – You will know my name...The Pariah.
I’m the rectifier

You won’t suffer fools so gladly
When it all comes down and it will believe me
We won’t suffer fools so gladly
When it all comes down and it will believe it

GRANT MY ONE WISH - FIND YOUR FLAT EARTH

I’d Newton your gravitas
For we are right
It’s why we fight

Blinded by evidence
Conjecture is the fact
We won’t turn back
Track Name: The Lovers
Angel, an arrangement made in heaven
Delivered beauty to the harem
Handed over like a postman
Delivers letters to the door
The entire package
This side up

Bokkie, its common place now to feel anxious
Afraid to show you my affections
She always had the best intentions
Cracks sometimes that you can see through
His eyes don’t lie so close them
And she’s so scared

Cold caller. He’s schooled to bind on to connection
When he holds on to the convention
Of respecting the tradition
A tradition you signed up for
He hears her utter her contempt under her breath.
Cold, it’s so cold.

Skelm, she held affection from another
Into the keeping of his brother
A touch of this and of the other
With his brother she did lay
She did lay afraid of what may come.

Forsaker, retaliation born from anger
This malice forced the hand of actions
It paved the path of false enchantment
This is the bed on which you laid
The Crow Witch bathed
In stones, it’s so cold.
The Crow Witch bathed.
Track Name: The Hierophant
We are the shaman seeking guidance
Benediction
Absolution

Praetextatus you have now claimed us
A vacant shadow for us to follow

I am floating - Never falling
Never drowning - Am I dying?

We are the shaman. You’re seeking guidance
Benediction
Then absolution

I am floating - Never falling
Never drowning - Am I dying?

Cosmic junk - Kessler Syndrome buccaneer
I’m cosmic junk - Lost in the ionosphere

Rotten Apples all this time
I may be bruised – But I’m not broken
I’m not broken

Recurring Themes throughout my life
They’re waiting for it to happen
And it’ll happen

There’s a reason that we function
I’ve given every ounce there is to lose
I’m breaking strings & the loser wins

If I wake up and reject everything
That we are meant to take – I’d still be dreaming
There’s more to me?
There’s more to me?

This honeymoon period is over

To this very day – Still making waves
Even in decay – This promise made
It’s a promise that I just can’t keep
It’s a promise that I just can’t keep.

I’m broken in
I’m defocussing
And yes I’ve lied to everybody that I’ve had

This honeymoon period is over

Cosmic, cosmic junk - Kessler syndrome Buccaneer
I’m cosmic junk - Lost in the ionosphere
