Sekator The first 2 tracks are really unique and original slabs of experimental. dissonant metal with many different influences thrown in. VERY interesting.

The next 2 tracks are boring, predictable industrial remixes of the first track. They sound exactly like the thousand of industrial metal remixes I have heard. Extremely forgettable.

This is a band with great potential, they need to really focus on what they do best and leave industrial remixes for something else IMHO. Favorite track: Rebar.

This second release by Austin Texas-based prog/industrial metal trio Earthdiver continues the crushing narrative presented with their debut EP "Puncture" while pushing the limits even further with a multi-national collaboration with KOMARA (featuring King Crimson's Pat Mastelotto).

This new single also includes two brooding remixes by a pair of Los Angeles' finest dark electronic artists: D/SIR and Sleep Clinic.

Track Name: Rebar
won't keep my wrath at bay
your resignation
won't take the pain away

reinforce the pain
I want you to feel the sting
put all the years of obsession behind you
reach out
into the empty arms
I want you to feel the sting
may all of your fears find a way to destroy you

self immolation
won't keep my wrath at bay
won't take the pain away

hunt you down
obsession is contagious
face the ground
reliving every moment
force you down
obsession never changes
gagged and bound
not ready for atonement
Track Name: Skepticism (feat. Komara)
to this meeting of consequence
fashionably late
tell yourself to let this ride
reliving every mistake

spiral down
with the pain of doubt
choke and drown
on a life without

let this go

increments of disorder
materials of fate
syphon out those wells of guilt inside
nothing left here to hate

spiral down
with the pain of doubt
choke and drown
on a life without
break new ground
build a foundation
feel the sound
of a life without contrition
