about

TESTIMONY combines elements of thrash and progressive metal, yielding a sort of spacey travel through time that rips like any other band from '80s, but with an artistic flair all on its own. The bands' first release, Transcending Reality, borrows heavily from what came over 20 years ago, but places a lengthy twist on the music, often with drawn out sections and technical bonuses.

about

Testimony Northwest, Indiana

Hailing from Indiana, TESTIMONY was formed in late 2009 by drummer Taylor Lambacher who later went on to draft guitarist Michael Gawel, his older brother Derek Lambacher on bass and vocalist Adrian Harris. With their line-up cemented, TESTIMONY set out to create complex, challenging metal music that, while rooted in tradition, has a quality and sound all its own. ... more

Track Name: Release From Life
RELEASE FROM LIFE

Inside the asylum walls
I rest in solitude
wondering my fate
with nothing to conclude
a hopeless situation
has befallen me
hidden from sight
from innocent eyes to see

stare into a place once full
of hopes and dreams
now devoid
of anything

The thought I carried and held so dear
Turns itself into a great fear
of what shall become of my fate
all I can do is lie in wait
Thoughts racing without regret
the time has come to pay my debt
to the tolls of this society
that has ultimately created me

The day has come my time is here
the imminent end draws so near
walked through the corridors of the maze
the place where I spent the rest of my days
Strapped to the chair there is no release
from the source of my decease
The handle is pulled this is the end
Into the blackness I will descend

release me. release me
release from, release from life
Track Name: State of Delusion
STATE OF DELUSION

Here I stand
without a hand
to guide my mind
through strands of time
certainty inane
my thoughts remain
forever lost
intellectual holocaust

Twisted forms pass my eyes
these things I see must be lies
fear running through my veins
false visions driving me insane
now there is no way out
a sea of infinite doubt
vast realms of uncertainty
state of delusion coming over me

Impossible to see
what appears, unperceived
dreams once came
nightmares now make their claim
upon my soul
consequences unfortold
fading light
my spirit is black as night

Twisted forms pass my eyes
these things I see must be lies
fear running through my veins
false visions driving me insane
now there is no way out
a sea of infinite doubt
vast realms of uncertainty
state of delusion coming over me
Track Name: Society's End
SOCIETY'S END

VERSE:
Confined into these walls.
But none of them will see.
Their master plan was to save all man but will only slay them all.
This will be the end.
All of mankind will perish.
When the sirens sound and the war begins,
There'll be no God to save you then.
Blistering chaos
Civilization no more
The sky is torn and waves of destruction
will destroy what's left of the world.
All the believers
who prayed and worshiped his name.
Turned to ash, but with one to blame,
Their savior Jesus Christ
Black above
Remains beneath
No reason to bury the dead
Silent screams of disbelief from those who have survived.

CHORUS:
The fury has left us without walls so we can no longer defend.
As it crawls closer the sight of exposure will show us what will come to be.
Take your last breath before there's nothing left, claiming your life in a hole.
No disillusion try not to pretend, cause this is Societies End.

VERSE:
Order means nothing
Do what you will to live
Killing the helpless
Time begins again
Undergound societies
Conform and begin to ally
Skinned from bone, Ripping flesh, Bleed you till you die.
First to the surface
Ashes rain from the sky
Time to start a new
The ruler is I
Those who disobey
Shall be put to death,
There is order here, but much to fear, Comply or you shall DIE!!!Black above
Remains beneath
No reason to bury the dead
you think youre spared just wait and see my reign has only just begun.

CHORUS:
The fury has left us without walls so we can no longer defend.
As it crawls closer the sight of exposure will show us what will come to be.
Take your last breath before there's nothing left, claiming your life in a hole.
No disillusion try not to pretend, cause this is Societies End.
Track Name: Transcending Reality
TRANSCENDING REALITY

Brought about through experimentation
a horrible catastrophe
controlled conditions overrun
by the means of this creation
beyond all recognition
are the consequences of this decision
to test fate and take a chance
with an exercise in arrogance

See the results before you
more than could have been thought
transcending reality
entering impossibility

Watch as the entire world
begins to crumble under the weight
of the hideous monstrosity
set free from within its cage
begin to feel the wrath
of the planets final attack
imploding upon itself
destroying everything it once had

as we look upon the remains
of what used to be
we begin to realize
that this is now reality
