Husky Fuzz I cant say enough about this band and album. A heavy, phat, juicy thick riff good time is to be had by all. Im hoping to make music this good in the futre. Favorite track: Gold From Sand.

Colin M. Borracho are back and arguably better than ever, having lost none of their momentum from the blistering "Second Coming of Heavy" Split. I absolutely love the thick, fuzzy guitar and bass sound. An awesome album to begin to close out 2016! Favorite track: Shot Down, Banged Up, Fade Away.

One more time The sun does shine Through earth The open road ahead Make my fortune To bury me when I’m dead With my hand I made gold from the sand Take it now My will be damned Sands of time Head held high Dignity sold for a ball and chain of gold Choked on lies Sand through fingers Thy will be damned Not this time Not the place or the sign Careful what you wish for You might get what you deserve Antagonized Gods of pain Swimming in the seas of your misery Money reigns Spin the wheel of fortune For a soul depraved My fate, my fortune, my crime

Overload 10:43
Suicide Holy pride Starving children Famine, drought Bloody wars in the name of God Mass graves Millions dead Your holy gospel is the greatest fraud Leave it all behind You can have your false prophets Who lead the blind Genocide Bottom line Making profits Gouge the poor Corporate greed for the pigs of war Rape the earth Pass the blame Manipulation is your game Leave it all behind You can have your false prophets Who lead the blind I won’t take it anymore I won’t be your whore Party lines Promised lies Politicians Hold the reins Keeping citizens in chains Soulless puppet On a string Corporate sponsors, cash is king I won’t take it anymore I won’t be your whore I won’t take it anymore I won’t fight your wars I am a simple man Just want to be left alone Don’t want your gods Telling me how to live Don’t want no government Taking what I can’t give

Lost In Time 06:32
Everything I see Laid out in front of me A thousand miles or so What we find we don’t know We don’t know Many years ahead It will be said In an ancient tongue Understood by some It describes a time When planets align Fire from the sky No one left to wonder why Wonder why We’re lost in time, can’t find our way Throw the switch, flip the phase Get up to speed, we’re breaking through What we saw No one knew We had a plan We claimed what’s ours Live off the land Toil away the hours Then the clouds turned black And the wind blew cold We turned our back No time to grow old To grow old Way back in time Before darkness came Before the muck and the grime Suffering our endless shame Now that we’re lost Nothing remains Drifting through frost Shackled in chains Shackled in chains

Descent 05:45

On the edge of time Knee-deep in the dust I look toward the sky While my mind turns to rust Everything I see Kills the sun I will be washed away Back to the days Before greed was king We made our own way We shared the same dream But the dream didn’t last This dust is all we have Don’t look away, not much longer now Don’t look away, we are gone When did we know Didn’t see the sign We waited for years But the stars didn’t align Now we hold on for the end While our minds dissolve Don't look away, not much longer now Don’ look away, we are gone Day turns black, ship’s off track Can’t turn back As we drifted away Nowhere to hide, the stars collide We’re tossed aside As we drifted away Drifted away from the sun No hope now, no why or how Death is my vow As we drifted away Day turns black, ship’s off track Can’t turn back As we drifted away Nowhere to hide, the stars collide We’re tossed aside As we drifted away from the sun

What do you say When the shit hits the fan What can I say You gotta stick to the plan What did you say About the future, now the past What we can’t say Is how long did it last Shot down Never got a chance to fight Banged up Sure did take a bite Fade away Fade away into the night And never see the light of the sun again What did she say We should stick to the plan No one will say That this plan is in the can Nothing left to say No words to speak We can’t say And our words make us weak And did we say, on that day When the earth slipped away We will be found

Last Song 04:52
It’s time for me to leave You know I had a real good time My will was strong But the journey was long Now I have to say goodbye Now I sit in the dry desert baby Far away from society Among the ghosts and emptiness No more humanity I feel warm winds blowing A future bright as death Scorched earth My rebirth A destiny suppressed Now I sit in the dry desert baby Far away from society Among the ghosts and emptiness Erasing humanity It’s a losing fight On the cosmic battlefield Forked tongues The black sun Never able to cut the deal Now I sit in the dry desert baby Far away from reality I moved in amongst the ghosts To embrace my insanity There is a hell to pay To take the pain away

about

Atacama is the driest place on earth. A vast wasteland, to pass through it inevitably affects the traveler in profound ways. As the body crosses miles of barren landscape, the mind looks inward, examining itself, unsure of what is there and unprepared for what it will find. With time and distance, the harsh conditions conspire with the traveler's distracted subconscious to present a reality very different than it is. How this new reality is interpreted can be a dangerous and powerful journey. This is the soundtrack to that journey.
