TheNugget1999 Somehow Klatyon continues to show off his skills by revisiting the self titled Album Circle of Dust and making it ten times better! Favorite track: Rational Lies (25th Anniversary Mix).

Samson Wick The original has been re-imagined; the raw edges ground down and refined into something "clean". Dynamic range has been compressed to add plenty of "punch", vocals have been re-sculpted with hints of Scandroid and Celldweller. A good release in its own right, but not perfect because some of those raw edges were part of the authenticity. Disappointed that "Senseless Abandon" and "Technological Disguise" are still MIA - next year is the 30th Anniv of the 1992 release - maybe there's still hope? Favorite track: Dissolved (25th Anniversary Mix).

Matthew Skipworth The 25th Anniversary remix/ remaster of CoD's debut album is so, so very cool. This release pumps with the power, aggression and complexity of the music, lyrics and overall sound. So cool!

Open-mouth stares fracturing divide Empty heart bare emotions coincide Stolen lungs breathe momentary breath Empty eyes see secondary death Four cycles moving on Three dark days and death is gone Two wishes to fullfill Only onenemy to kill Onenemy Open-mouth stares void of speech and dry Empty heart bare where many failures lie Stolen lungs breathe the air of darkest dread Empty eyes see a life already dead Claimed by the crippled hand of hate Four cycles Three dark days Two wishes Onenemy

Force your opinions on the mind of the young Feeding poison to hungry souls Prepare them for their self-destruction Laughing as you watch them die Lie to me your lie Make your own concept of what's right and what's wrong Feeding poison to hungry souls Prepare to pay for your destruction Your day of judgment draweth nigh (Demoralize) Converting millions to your lies (Demoralize) Your day of judgment draweth nigh Reflecting your master Creator of lies Sowing disaster Disaster you also shall reap (Demoralize) (Demoralize) (Demoralize) Demoralize Demoralize Your day of judgment draweth nigh Demoralize Your day of judgment draweth nigh

"Bad dreams again?" Here it is again: the voice that scares my thoughts away Demands attention for itself, itself alone Seems so unthreatening but promises a bitter sting Soon my heart and mind become the battle zone Push aside all reason, a sailor to the sirens call Escape reality for temporary lies Sometimes I can't believe the things I'll try to justify Only more lies again Get out of my head, leave me alone You're no longer welcome here A voice so sweet with words that kill A wicked whisper in my ear In my time of weakness is when I see your strength displayed Screaming silently tickling my ear Lie! I know who you really are And I see your hatred masked behind your smile Get out of my head, leave me alone You're no longer welcome here A voice so sweet with words that kill A wicked whisper in my ear "You can't see the eyes of the demon until he come callin'." O wretched man so failure prone Who will deliver me! I once was lost but now am found Was blind but now I see I once was lost but now am found Was blind but can I see? "Bad dreams again?"

"Where are we going?" - "Use your imagination." "Freeze! Don't move!" Deep in the darkness without form and void The hovering spirit of God Man given life soon only to die Fallen by deception Dwell in the confines of mortality Gripping the hand of despair Children of dust blown by winds of distress Into uncharted future stare Again the night falls to darken our dawn Silence, our lips seek refuge from harm again (from harm) Children of trial, offspring of pain Wounds of existence leave scars that remain (that remain) Scarred hand of healing waits stretched from the sky For those who would choose to receive Chains of oppression, shackles of fear Forever broken for those who draw near From storm to shelter, from darkness to light Wings cast a shadow, a haven from falling night "Where are we going?" (Scarred hand of healing waits stretched from the sky) (Scarred hand of healing waits stretched from the sky) (Scarred hand of healing waits stretched from the sky) (Scarred hand of healing waits stretched from the sky) Scarred hand of healing waits stretched from the sky Scarred hand of healing waits stretched from the sky From the sky, from the sky Scarred hand of healing waiting, waiting from the sky From the sky, from the sky, from the sky Scarred hand of healing waiting, waiting from the sky From the sky

"You've destroyed my life, and I hope you're happy." "Who are you?" World of illusion Living a lie Spiritual blindness No sight from your eyes Wisdom of ancients Disturbed from her sleep Returning with vengeance Deceiving the weak Darkness becomes a veil for those who believe Emptiness becomes the trail of life for those deceived "You again?" "You're gambling with your feral soul" Spirits of guidance Masks of disguise Seek your destruction Consumed in their lies Carefully brainwashed Decisive design Of him who controls you Possesses your mind Darkness becomes a veil for those who believe Hopelessness becomes the trail of life for those deceived "I believe in God!" "You've destroyed my life, and I hope you're happy." "Get me out of here!" Darkness becomes a veil for those who believe Misery becomes the trail of death for those deceived Age of illusion Processed untruth Cosmic attraction A synthetic spoof Reality twisted To fit your design As Hell claims its victim Now you're mine "The truth never changes" "Life with Jesus is endless hope, life without Him is a hopeless end."

O hound of Heaven, hear my cry! Remorse for things that I have justified My life's a book whose pages are well read Of actions good and evil and thoughts inside my head Sincerity, passing time will testify Between intention and what will really be For every idle word released, accountable, responsible For each and every deed (small as it may seem) Immortality, there is a price that must be paid Indispensable laws that cannot be disobeyed Circumstantial gravity, weight of great vitality Warning to us all, beware! In darkness a secret shines a light Where eyes of truth and knowledge have their sight Your life a book whose pages are well read Of actions good and evil and thoughts inside your head Eventually the winds of judgment will be stirred A throne of white, the book of life referred See death and Hell give up their dead as the books are being read A record of each life (speaks for itself) Immortality, there is a price that must be paid Indispensable laws that cannot be disobeyed Circumstantial gravity, weight of great vitality Warning to us all, beware!

"I have a bad feeling about this." "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view; until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it." "Let's dance!" (There exists no dream worth chasing if it cannot satisfy) (There exists no god worth serving if he cannot hear your cries) Dig your claws into the earth Struggle to attain Holding on for all your worth To what death will strip away Your wealth Your pride Dissolved In time Reduced To dust Your worthless treasures rust A camel through a needle's eye For greed express no shame You own no wealth that will provide Salvation from Hell's flames Your wealth Your pride Dissolved In time Reduced To dust Your worthless treasures rust Your wealth Your pride Dissolved In time Reduced To dust Your worthless treasures rust "I have a bad feeling about this." Your wealth Your pride Dissolved In time Reduced To dust Your worthless treasures rust (There exists no dream worth chasing if it cannot satisfy) (There exists no god worth serving if he cannot hear your cries) Your wealth Your pride Dissolved In time Your wealth Your pride Dissolved In time Your wealth Your pride Dissolved In time "I have a bad feeling about this"
