about

Poisoned Altars is the sophomore LP from heavy metal titans LORD DYING. Recorded in the spring of 2014 by Joel Grind of Toxic Holocaust, Poisoned Altars is the work of a band who spent the past 18 months grinding it out on the road touring relentlessly with the likes of Red Fang, Black Tusk and more. Blending the riffs and growls of High On Fire with the hammering groove of Crowbar Poisoned Altars cements LORD DYING as one of this decade’s dominant metal forces.

about

Lord Dying Portland, Oregon

Lord Dying come from Portland, Oregon, a place over abundant with purveyors of the heavy riff. A region where the inhabitants are plagued with nerve and joint damage due to lack of sunlight. In a time where everyone is trying to out-sludge or out-doom each other Lord Dying gives something less than a fuck. Lord Dying are here to pummel and promote simpler things like Cold brew-Hot Shower. ... more

Track Name: Poisoned Altars
Priests and their clergy
Royalty unbound
Pastors and prophets
Religion unfound

False implications
Of terror on the rise
Fleeting beliefs and
Impossible highs

Reason holding holes
Endless punching deep
Rotting out our bones
Killing all that need

Endless attachment
Understanding Scars
Losing your faith and
Poisoning Altars

All this religion
Promises in place
None understanding
Disgrace with grace

Reason holding holes
Endless punching deep
Rotting out our bones
Killing all that need
Track Name: The Clearing at the End of The Path
Fire like stars
Illuminate
Wisdom leads, shadows escape
The clearing at the end…

Ferocious me
Consuming Everything

Understand days
To medicate
A time to live, a time to hate
Assuming everything…

We will survive the night and
We’ll never admit defeat
Transgress and leave behind all
Forgotten enemies

I’ll feel the cold
Burning as of late
We transform, we subdue
Contemplate escape
Track Name: A Wound Outside of Time
I'll see that you complete
Your suffering
Walk alone into night
Truth you'll find
Secrets lie in this hell
Stories they tell
Answers lie on the other side
Tonight we ride

Our Path is set, our fires burn bright
As we head into the night
You feel the power raging through your veins
Follow us into the flames

We’re reborn unto night
Outside of time
Nothing left only death
WE NEVER REST
As we watch the blood flow free
We satisfy our needs
Answers lie on the other side
Tonight we ride
Track Name: An Open Sore
Wasted life form
Twisted master
Appropriately
Over under

Shining brightly
Inside open
A finding so sweet
A journey under

As we wake up
Darkness waning
This understanding
Undertaking

Nothing left now
But an open sore
Show us the future
Show us the score

I won't rest until you're gone
Understanding that you've won
Another time for anyone
One last sigh

Wasted life form
Twisted Master
A finding so sweet
A journey under

Nothing left now
But an open sore
Show us the future
Show us the score

I wont rest until you're gone
Understanding that you've won
Another time for anyone
One last sigh

Feels like we fanned this flame forever
And damned these rains since they begun
But now the water’s taking over
Dousing the fire that never burns

And now the sky itself is falling
It can no longer hold the sun
Without the light we were creating
Our future life may never come

I wont rest until you're gone
Understanding that you've won
Another time for anyone
One last sigh

One last push into the sun
Shining bright for everyone
Another night another dawn
One last high
Track Name: Offering Pain (and An Open Minded Center)
We're faced with graves and names
Those we've loved and those we've shamed
We'll live, and so we'll die
A place to be so

Brave

I'll see light follow
Alone and low down
Every night

Martyrs burn with their red eyes
Our Lives have been so blind
We love and so we hate
Our lies will be so

Brave

I'll see light follow
Alone and low down
Every night

We'll live in another place
And in another time
A place without regret
We can be so

I'll calm down
As we lie
And I'll lie
as we lie

And I'll take
My last breath
And I'll stop
When I'm dead
Track Name: Suckling at the Teat of a She-Beast
Inside this lair built of hate
The sickness overtakes
Another step ahead
And one behind

Past scars open up
As blood begins to flow
The sores infected
And will never heal

Forever sores and sun
We gather to become
Another burn so near
Nothing changes over here

Blood trickles under
The softest embrace

We hope for rendezvous
One last destructive move
The blood will subside soon
Lust found and love subdued

Blood trickles under
The softest embrace

You understand me like no one I know
Please be behind me, I’ll let no one know

Light dims in overview
Torment was all I knew
Extinguish all I feel
Until I cannot heal

Blood trickles under
The softest embrace

You understand me like no one I know
Please be behind me, I’ll let no one know
I’m your forever, behind you I’ll prove
Once and forever the world will undo

Another answered call
A wound befit for all
An anger runs so deep
For all that you shall reap

Blood trickles under
The softest embrace

You understand me like no one I know
Please be behind me, I’ll let no one know
I’m your forever, behind you I’ll prove
Once and forever the world will undo
Track Name: (All Hopes of a New Day)...Extinguished
Disease to cause unease
Is what we follow blindly
Obscure spells and cures
For all and everybody

The damned are conjuring
You shape, forever wanting
Perfect and oh so sane
So vain, and never taunting

Worship an unseen force
No hope for understanding
Your faith is always worthless
Always too demanding
Track Name: Darkness Remains
Darkness Remains Complete
In sight of day sinking
A willing hand pushing
Darkness obtains, fucking
We will keep this right here
One more time out for fear
I’ll watch and you’ll forget
Once more and that’s this shit

We age
We subside
We rage
We can’t hide

Darkness contains your luck
Forever under struck
A shock, an outside wish
An under over stitch
You grasp for precious air
All wounds become so clear
You scream and fall apart
And lose all your support

We Live
We release
We learn
To never see
