Werewolf 05:27 video
Moon is full tonight, I hear the wolf cry Let him on out ‘cause he lives to die Animal inside he barks and he bites No harm intended bloodlust that I like Brokenhearted strangers combust in the night Fangs a salivating Lycaon blood type Fuzz long and hairy ‘I groove - Out of sight!’ “I think I’m gonna eat ya, with a side of rice!” The Moon is full tonight I howl in its light The Moon is full tonight I bark n I bite! The Moon is full tonight I howl in its light The Moon is full tonight I bark n I bite! The Moon is full tonight, dire wolf won’t die Silver bullet can kill him, doubtful you’d survive Heed these words of wizdumb he smells ya fear Listen very closely ‘cause he knows you’re near His sniffer rarely misses so watch your rear Mouth be foaming thick eyes blood red Says, “I’m gonna eat ya with a loaf bread!” She says, “Is that salami?”, No it’s made of wood The Moon is full tonight I howl in its light The Moon is full tonight I bark n I bite! The Moon is full tonight I howl in its light The Moon is full tonight I bark n I bite! Moral of the story beware of the wolf He’s a hungry pup just needs some food Canine craving straight out the womb Loves kissing witches as they ride the broom Scratch behind the ear as his tail wags Such a handsome devil ya can comb his legs The beauty beast inside him just Scooby-Doo Give him lots of loving as he Barks At Moon The Moon is full tonight I howl in its light The Moon is full tonight I bark n I bite! The Moon is full tonight I howl in its light The Moon is full tonight I bark n I bite!

Iron Front 05:41
Raining blood from the sky, these eyes are not blind Draining blood from the high, these crops will not survive Down on my hands and knees, pray to Satan they bleed These racist cops troll their hate for fun We are The Iron Front We don’t tolerate scum We are Misery Men We don’t tolerate scum Distrust the truth you’ve been told, worship false prophets Gods Bloated War Machines, take more for their greed Rise up bleeding hearts, our time has come Take back Turtle Island, for our Indigenous Ones We are The Iron Front We don’t tolerate scum We are Misery Men We don’t tolerate scum Come all souls unite, for our Black voices fight In the name of Justice, in our names it’s Just Us Come now heathen one, we are the resistance Rise up with Iron Fists, crush these Fascist shits We are The Iron Front We don’t tolerate scum We are Misery Men We don’t tolerate scum

Climbing down from the trees They evolve skin their knees Now they fall dominos Ancient Ones Primordial They are man descend from apes So behold their mistakes Daylight comes Earth will burn All is lost Babylon We evolve ancient ones Now they cry forevermore Earth will burn no mistake Watch them fall Babylon Now reborn eternally Cosmos waves we will ride Hell on Earth we survive Galaxies Royalty We are Gods rarely die Water Bears Moss Piglets Swamps we dwell or mountain tops Tardigrades Ancient Ones We evolve ancient ones Now they cry forevermore Earth will burn no mistake Watch them fall Babylon

Nirürth 04:22
Looking out the grey sky feel like the Sun has died That’s okay it suits my soul I don’t mind I’m dead and cold Wake me up from this dream rip apart the Matrix seam Chasing down rabbit holes wondering where did Alice go Over and over, and over we live this life Over and over, and over we live this life Over and over, and over we live this life Over and over, and over we live this life Watch the fractals split your eye kill your ego watch it die Spin the vortex down the drain opens up fifth dimension I can’t see where i'm at, I can’t tell if it’s a trap Omnipotent voice comes forth asking, “Did you feed the cat?” Over and over, and over we live this life Over and over, and over we live this life Over and over, and over we live this life Over and over, and over we live this life Moving fast speed of light break on through to the outer side Out beyond the cosmos bright I catch Carl Sagan’s eyes Hands me a gigantic joint, “Smoke this stuff be Richard Brautigan...” Take the Trip talk to “God” just know it’s the Elder One’s Over and over, and over we live this life Over and over, and over we live this life Over and over, and over we live this life Over and over, and over we live this life Eat these shrooms, smoke this pipe, kiss the Queen say, “goodnight” “...You are on the flip side where the beatniks go to sigh!” Fading out into the Black I could eat you with my back Pass the smoke, take a rip, find out where you’ve always been Over and over, and over we live this life Over and over, and over we live this life Over and over, and over we live this life Over and over, and over we live this life Over and over, and over we live this life Over and over, and over we live this life Over and over, and over we live this life Over and over, and over we live this life

about

The third studio album from Portland, OR's THE MISERY MEN.

Heavy Grunge / Doom / Drone that’s lyrically driven. It’s been described as having a Nirvana, Danzig, Acid Bath, and Sleep overtones.

“I started writing Devillusion at the beginning of the Pandemic. 16 months of bloodletting 5 songs and 3 covers later we have an album. It was a therapeutic writing process to say the least. Inspired by the “Grunge” influencers in the PNW like Napalm Beach, Dead Moon, The Wipers, that definitely impacted TAD, Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Screaming Trees, Soundgarden, etc. I wanted to pay homage to the folks who laid the foundation and paved the path that we walk down. I’m humbled and grateful daily that I have found a vortex that aligns with my frequencies to allow me through great collaboration to tap into the ether, transmutating a Rock n’ Roll album I feel proud to be a part of and co-produce with Rob Wrong. We all had a good time making this album. It’s been challenging but ever rewarding.

I had asked Chris Newman to collaborate on something, maybe lay down a solo or harmonize on a song or write something together, and at first he was very interested and excited once he recovered from surgery. Unfortunately his health took a turn for the worse and Chris passed May 5th 2021. So Rob and I decided we needed to honor him and record a couple songs. We contacted Sam Henry (Napalm Beach, The Wipers, Jenny Don’t and the Spurs) to play drums and it just made sense to have Kelly Halliburton (Dead Moon, Pierced Arrows, Jenny Don’t and the Spurs) to play bass. We also recruited Jeffrey Larson (Lucky 13’s, Misfortunes of Mr Teal) to play rhythm guitar along with Rob Wrong on lead, plus me just on vocals. We recorded Cat With Nine Lives by Napalm Beach and The Reaper by Snow Bud and the Flower People. Both songs were Chris Newman songs, that turned out pretty damn good! Hell we didn’t even practice together before we recorded. :)

Again I recruited Billy Anderson to play bass again on this album, because beyond his ability of musicianship and his legendary enginear status he’s also a pleasure to be around. Hilarious, kind, and smarter than your average Neanderthal bassist. Ha! He also studied anthropology so he knows a thing or two about humans. Not to mention he played a Baseball growing up, so I figured he must really know what he’s doing with basses. Oh and he’s the master of Pun!

Once again Ian Caton of Breath is playing drums on this album. Talk about a Beast Of Burden, what an absolute animal! He usually doesn’t have a problem playing any style or tempo and is able to tap into the ether with ease!

Of course Rob Wrong once again delivers some of the best solos he’s ever played. Not only that but he doubled the rhythm to give this album the full collective collaboration. I’m humbled to work with him and call him a best friend. It’s been a ton of fun making two albums with him at Wrong Way Recording.

Again I got Ben House to make some incredible artwork! It’s beyond expectations and couldn’t have been happier with the results!

Devillusion was also mastered by TAD, not to mention inspired by him as well. I originally wanted to call the album Devil’s Balls, but after watching the TAD documentary and the scene where he showed his mom the album and she said something like, “Tad you’re smiling…Tad God’s Balls? But Tad you have such a great smile.” :) Nevertheless, we have a song called Devil’s Balls and Werewolf that we’re most definitely influenced by some Tad. I’m forever grateful for his existence.“ - Corey Lewis, The Misery Men
