about

A new lineup breeds a new album, though this one being an interesting exception to the rule! Genericist was created by just two people. One of them is long time member Joseph Parry and the other is new guitarist Juani Cummings.

It talks about the generic attitude of society and the media today and reveals the fact that we should fight against it. Continue to push ourselves to greater things.

The album cover was shot in Joe's home studio by tha pair taking in turns with the camera.

Joe says "I remember asking Juani what he had mask wise for us to shoot with and he mentioned these old pirate masks from a halloween gig. One was silver and one was gold, naturally being the douchebag that I am I opted for gold and left Juani with the peasant silver hahaha!

I set up the lighting and took a shot of Juani then we reversed roles, I blended the two shots together in Photoshop, as you can see I'm on the left and he is on the right. Loved how it came out and represents us almost perfectly. Except we're not piratey at all... I even pay for my Photoshop hahaha!"

Track Name: Acceptance
Accepting yourself is the first step to suffocation,
Strip me of will, programmed to hate all that you will to be.
Track Name: Genericist
This is age of conception, a crippled nation,
Packaged as "what you're fucking sold",
Now, I am the true saviour, embrace in full salvation,
This is the end of everything you have now,

Burn,
Is this it?

Save my soul to save thy self,

At the end of dedication lies the path to true success.
Track Name: Solemn
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Attempt 1
Aneurysm the social display,
A force in motion set for decay,
In 1939 the world was set to burn,
Since then the clock has stopped, forgotten to return,

A war of broken minds,
Bought and shipped in iDevine,
It's lost before we had the chance to feed the growth again,

The social rising, It's enterprising of one's self,
Again, I'm not for sale.

Send me another life,
Send me a lie,
Send me another life,
Send me a lie,

Digusted in this new life,

Indecisive,
Inner sight.
Track Name: Arch Enemus
Born into a live of suffering,
Extremities once thought human, now monitored and observed,
This world that you know is programmed at will,
Accept the beginning now or suffer til the end of time,

Bow down the martyr,
Let his blood fill the seasons air,
This shall grace the books,
As the moment we killed dispair,

Take no time,
Fill the streets with just one word,
Make them feel their time is done,
Then slaughter it all again,

Devour worlds,
Can't face the self conscious that you've left behind,

They feel it now,
Limb from fucking limb break their skin,
They feel it now,
Broken kin lost alone with their sin.
Track Name: Self Preservation
Dedicate, to yourself, time to make it right,
Be the only one that fucked up your life,
Don't, drag, it down again,

Don't force self preservation,
Another martyr for the broke and forsaken,
Crush, Self, drowned in frustration,

I recreate it,
Brewed in the source of the storm once again,

Desolate it, because I made it on my own,
Born from the ashes of your failure,

Let me see through your eyes,
For the last time,
Let me live though your life,
For the first time,
Let me see through your eyes,
For the last time,
Let me live though your life,
For the first time, now,

Don't force self preservation,
Another martyr for the broke and forsaken,
Crush, Self, drowned in frustration.
Track Name: Genocide
I am the future reversing,
Time inverted, I've twisted it sour,
On the edge of passion and pleasure,
A paradox that can never be held,

I'm not present now,
I'm unconsciously seething,
Breeding,

I am not your God's cosmic debris,
I will not be played again,

Blood,

I am not your God's cosmic debris,
I will not be played again,
Track Name: Severance
I turn the nation of my prism mind over and over,
To seek the truth that you left her again,
I find myself at wits ending, Offer me this,
Offer me again I dare you,

Do it,
Say it,
Feel it,
Be it,

In glass freedom,

Do it,
Say it,
Feel it,
Be it,

Sever,

Captivated til the end again,
Drag me home and drown me deep,
Feel myself escape, please,
Let me kneel again, severance.
Track Name: Endlessly Hopeless
I am the one you're hating now, I am the one who plagues you deep,
I am the one which feels the knife slide in and coat with crimson dreams,

In the age of broken kings, a prophet tamed the lands,
He came forth with a bible in his blackened hands,
Brainwashed beyond all reasoning,
Cast out beyond the reigning wings,

Endlessly hopeless, empty forgotten life,
Endlessly hopeless, empty forgotten life,
Endlessly hopeless, empty forgotten life,
Endlessly hopeless, empty forgotten life,

I am the one you're hating now, I am the one who plagues you deep,
I am the one which feels the knife slide in and coat with crimson dreams,

Bow down to the entity,
The salvating taste of the poison sea,
Enter the ocean now and feed the black abyss,

I am the one you're hating now, I am the one who plagues you deep,
I am the one which feels the knife slide in and coat with crimson dreams.
