Matthew Rukgaber Soldier may have the perfect thrash singer because he calls to mind the great hair metal vocalists (Skid Row/LA Guns) but has enough grittiness to pull off some killer thrash (like a modern Laaz Rockit). Musically, they move from speed metal (2, 3, 9, and 10) to a ballad (6) to up-tempo grooves (4, 5, 7, 8). It is all done with amazing confidence and skill. Favorite track: Revolt.

Track Name: A Handful Of Children
In my whole life I've burglarized a grocery store, stole some nickels and dimes, busted open a stamp machine, stole a few automobiles and cashed a couple cheques.

Believe me: If I started murdering people, there'd be none of you left.

My children are coming. I told you twenty years ago. I told the judge: "Can't you see what you're doing here?" - He didn't care. Nobody cared.

Nobody cared... Only a handful of children cared.
Track Name: Between Two Masters
A broken down society
The cesspool of malignity
Like brainless pawns you work and breed
Between two masters you shall live

Buy your own future, a license to steal
Join either side and deny your own will
Suck your way right to the top; prepare to rejoice
'Cause the spoiled will vote; to the victor go the spoils

Regicide
Regicide
Hand on your heart, begin to falsify

Regicide
Regicide
You're craving for power
FUCK YOU - to hell with your lies

Another day you live to work
Another night to taste the dirt
Under two blankets they disguise
Enjoy your daily serve of lies

Cut with this system, break out of the wheel
Make your own choice, hit them with words of steel
Come with us and join the mosh, rebel and destroy
The people will vote, and the state is going to boil

Regicide
Regicide
Hand on your heart, begin to falsify

Regicide
Regicide
You're craving for power
FUCK YOU - to hell with your lies

Don't count on me
I'm a free mind, a free soul
I'll find my own place on the World

Leave us be
I'm one of many who knows
We'll find our on place on the World

Don't count on me
I'm a free mind, a free soul
I'll find my own place on the World

Leave us be
'Cause we'll bring your fall
We'll find our on place on the World
Track Name: Revolt
Festering pigs with viper eyes - searching for your gold
Feeding you a million lies - welcome to the show
Break a sweat to find a job when all the money's fucking loose
Try to pull away to find you're stretching your own noose

Take no more of their filthy abuse
Try to speak up - just shout the truth
Take the streets and make hell break loose
REVOLT

No escaping from their hands, they'll tie you to the floor
Just another lesser man to do their dirty chores
Tell yourself that complacence eventually will get you through
Turn around and realize that you're just being used!

Take no more of their filthy abuse
Try to speak up - just shout the truth
Take the streets and make hell break loose
REVOLT

TRY TO STOP US ALL

Dawn of the muppets
Downfall of reason
Lords of the brain-dead
Easy words for weak minds

So - jump ahead and join the mosh, break out of their control
Long decades of servitude; time to repay our foes
Be one with the growing horde, go hit them hard and make a bruise
Leave behind your innocence and come wipe the refuse

Take no more of their filthy abuse
Try to speak up - just shout the truth
Take the streets and make hell break loose
REVOLT
Track Name: Gas Powered Jesus
Oh lord
My secret friend
Lend me your strength again

A twisted menace
Hanging over our heads
War on terror
Satan's coming our way

Save me Jesus
Smite my enemies down
Punish evil

Save us Jesus
Cast your wrath on their soil
Gas powered Jesus
Give me my share of oil

My friend
Join our holy crusade
Help the good guys save the day

I feel real proud
Making a better World
Fight for freedom
Resistance will be quelled

Save me Jesus
Smite my enemies down
Punish evil

Save us Jesus
Make their families boil
Gas powered Jesus
Give me my share of oil
Track Name: Kill My Soul
Staring at the lights
From my humble corner in the back
Gotta take that place
So tonight I'll kill my soul
Tonight I kill my soul

They want you unplugged
They say that you shan't rock, drink or fuck
Threaten me with hell you wanker
But tonight I'll kill my soul
Tonight I kill my soul

There's nothing you can say to me
Real people follow their own creed
Look at me over your shoulder; I won't be bending over
Look down or you may step on shit

So here we are again
Ready to play rock and raise some hell
Please excuse us boring bastards
'Cause tonight we'll kill our souls
Tonight we kill our souls

There's nothing you can say to us
We've chosen to live hard and rough
Look at us over your shoulder; we won't be bending over
Look down or you may step on shit

There's nothing you can say to me
Real people follow their own creed
Look at me over your shoulder; I won't be bending over
Look down or you may step on shit
Track Name: The Road
"Where did we go wrong?" - they said
Crying on my shoulder
Another page to turn
In a book they can't close yet

"And what did he do wrong?" - they asked
"Tell us about her"

I turned to them
Embraced their bodies
'Cause I'm so fouly
I'll never forget his pain

How to explain
It's all in vain
Can't help but think we're all to blame

He was so blind
He couldn't follow the line
Except the ones Which reached his mind

Never wanted him
To go the wrong way
To live and die in misery

We never spoke
He's now forgotten
No words can save my friend - as he embraces the immense
Fading darkness

Every night
He took his flight
Dancing with demons
'Till the sunrise

But on this day
You lay away
A stiff carcass and your soul fades

We watch his coffin
We stand and stare
Hoping that he knows that we cared

Why did he play
He chose the way
Skipping his dreams to fall from grace

We never spoke
He's now forgotten
No words can save my friend - as he embraces the immense
Fading darkness

And now we remember
In calm nights
They way you used
To joke and smile

Our minds reach high
To grab your soul
To speak to you for one last time

In the finite road of life
Some still run and some are tired

Give us strengh during the ride
Don't let us fall by your side
Track Name: Stand Your Ground
Drenched in the fire
You're on the loose
You've put together all the clues

You're on the clock
Broke on your dues
Gambling your fate on a short fuse

Now you're about
To reach the goal
But they will try to tackle you

Kick out your fears and stand your ground
They're just a rotten brood
Don't let the scumbags wear you out
It's payback coming through

You filled the jar
You stirred the mix
They spitted poison on the brew

Your final stretch
A sip of truth
Victory's gate's within your view

Now you're about
To reach the goal
But they will try to tackle you

Kick out your fears and stand your ground
They're just a rotten brood
Don't let the scumbags wear you out
It's payback coming through

Just stand your ground
Stand your ground
Stand your ground
Stand your ground

Unleash the madness
Unleash the madness
Unleash the madness
Just show them what you're up about!

Now you're about
To reach the goal
But they will try to tackle you

Kick out your fears and stand your ground
They're just a rotten brood
Don't let the scumbags wear you out
It's payback coming through
Track Name: Winebrick Prophet
Born every morning wherever I sleep
I die every evening somewhere in the streets
Living life high and on a bad routine
I dwell in a portal with a purple brick

I'm wasted
'Been stuffed in wine
And I'm laughing
While people cry

Scavaging the spoils of this society
I feed on the charity of fools and priests
I live under my own damned philosophy
With one or two cartons as my company

I'm crazy
You'd bet your life
But baby
I'll be your guide

I'm ever vigilant, I stalk while you pass by
I search the liquor stores to see what I can buy
For a few worthless coins I have my happiness at hand
Are you gonna criticize the way I live?
- Or will you spare some change for me?

Yes, I'm a thinker - just you wait and see
I've lost all my faith in our humanity
If you want my teachings and my company
Just loosen your wallet, you will summon me

I'm hopeless
Blame society
But I'll be your friend
Just summon me

I'm ever vigilant, I stalk while you pass by
I search the liquor stores to see what I can buy
For a few worthless coins I have my happiness at hand
Are you gonna criticize the way I live?
- Or will you spare some change for me?
Track Name: Destroyers
Playing God is something but I'd rather make a fire
Like a ray of lightning striking down right through your soul
Being a tyrant in my country fails to satisfy me
Burning down humanity is one within my hopes

Crashing their lies
Right into your home
A vast pile of feces is taking control

They won't hear your cries
- It's not like they won't
But they'd rather toast to the sound of the bombs

Drilling your eyes
With censorized news
Another example of media's abuse

Wrecking the wise
Promoting the fools
It's easy to know that they won't let you choose

Destroyers (x2)

Cry for the crisis
And refuse to see
That blood from the children is fuelling your car

They'll bring us progress
And prosperity
Gathering black gold from genocidal wars

Pleading is vain
They will not refuse
To keep draining souls to distille their black booze

You think you're safe
That you won't get screwed
But playing this game we are all bound to lose

Destroyers (x4)

Playing God is something,
But I'd rather make a fire

Destroyers (x4)
Track Name: Maniac
Raging face and guilty hands
He dwells in his beliefs
Something's wrong inside his mind
Makes sightings uncanny

Seeking eyes, eternal look
He investigates the void
Playing with his demons
The souls of the souless

Walking carcass
In your backyard.

Finding his way
Through his own mind.

Maniac

Cast out from society
He never met a soul
Brain rotten with death and screams
Pulsating rabid dreams

Broken will and broken mind
Twisting his new thoughts
Looking for his friends to gore
The flesh of the chosen - ones

Rising anguish
Nerves are crumbling

Screeching noises
Evil voices

MORBID DESIRES
Losing his way
SCREAMING A WHISPER
He cuts through the silence
CHARMING MONSTRUOSITIES
Get into your brain
STALKING YOU IN YOUR SLEEP
You'll drown in his fire

Maniac

So if you're alone at night
Lost within the streets
Try to stay far from the dark
He's at every corner

Ravid he leaps forward
Thirsty for your blood
Death and pain made flesh and bone
Encaged inside a man

Now he's coming,
Best be running

Here's the slayer,
Say your prayers

MORBID DESIRES
Losing his way
SCREAMING A WHISPER
He cuts through the silence
CHARMING MONSTRUOSITIES
Get into your brain
STALKING YOU IN YOUR SLEEP
You'll drown in his fire
