Pete Faden I was brought here via WytCHord and stayed long afterwards. Vince Green is a one man machine. Churning out those crunchy riffs with that awesome, Neil Fallon-esque voice and cool angsty lyrics. Also The Big Lebowski
Adding Skin of the Buffalo to Favorite Tracks with Sobchak. They are sort of tied for first Favorite track: Sobchak.

Album Reviews

Metal Nexus
"Dense, leaden thick-as-molasses riffs, grooving rhythms, combustible drumming..it all finds it place on this incredible album. The vocals are one of the re-occurring highlights of this record too and will leave the listener in silenced amazement once everything heard has sunken in and taken root."

The Ripple Effect
"It played on repeat for almost a full week upon discovery and still gives me that love and feeling like the first time the burning riffs and intoxicating vocals graced my speakers."

Outlaws of the Sun
"THAL’s debut album Glitter comes off as a heavier version of Truckfighters as they create a similar style of Fuzz/Desert Rock as that great band. THAL start to create their own sound by adding a distorted noise rock vibe to the mix."

Rock Circuz
"Wer auf groovigen Metal/Rock der Marke Clutch steht, sollte sich unbedingt mal mit THAL aus Ohio befassen. Wer dazu auch noch etwas Blues und Stoner vertragen kann, ist bei THAL ganz sicher."

Track Name: Apotheosis
I look above and wonder what’s there
We feel the tremors down below
Deep inside I really don’t care
When it’s time, you know I’ll pick the way I go

Prepare to meet your demon’s boy
You know they look just like you
Become a God once more
Forever we shall rule

I sprout my wings of broken glass
Shattered by the Siren's scream
They try to lead you to their trap
Never once did you deny my right to bleed

Prepare to meet your demon’s boy
You know they look just like you
Become a God once more
Forever we shall rule
Track Name: Vacant
Look across the river
Who’s that hiding there?
Haven’t we seen this face before?
Can it smell my fear?
Do I even care?
If there’s hell below, I raise my hand to go

Why did it take so long?
Nobody survives this ball of shit we’re on
One thousand Gods that all sing different songs
This one’s right and everyone else is wrong

If I sold my soul, who would buy it now?
Tainted by this killers blood
Take up arms against you
Feel the hatchet strike, Heathens know your precious love
Bring it down tonight

Why did it take so long?
Nobody survives this ball of shit we’re on
One thousand Gods that all sing different songs
This one’s right and everyone else is wrong

I am a revelation
Survive your condemnation
Bow before your master
Vacant eyes will roam
Track Name: Skin of the Buffalo
Born in the shadow of his majesty’s realm
His future death has come this night
The fields weep with blood that spilled from the hunt
The blood has clouded his eyes

Born, Cry, Grow, The Skin of the Buffalo
Rise, Plan, Go, The Skin of the Buffalo
Fall, Love, Slow, The Skin of the Buffalo
Die, Dust, Flow, The Skin of the Buffalo

The plan is held by stitches wrapped in the mist
The morning air has come too soon
Become a legend or just step to the side
One last breath and do what you must do

The posse gathers at the bottom of the hill to make a plan
You head’em off
And when the stampede rushes by; his life will flash before his eyes
The winter never stops

Born, Cry, Grow, The Skin of the Buffalo
Rise, Plan, Go, The Skin of the Buffalo
Fall, Love, Slow, The Skin of the Buffalo
Die, Dust, Flow, The Skin of the Buffalo
Track Name: Bad Intentions
She walks into the room with bad intentions
Take everything you have, no inhibition
Taste the blood as the world begins to fade
By the end of the night my soul is missing

Hang on for the ride
Drink from her stream, manifest from the inside
Submit to the rule of her evil love
Skin like a dove that’s stained with demon’s blood

The moon it waxes tonight, it has been written
The screams that come from below, muffled by deep incisions
Your eyes will never adjust, the shadows move like witches
She draws them in with her lust, as she fulfills her mission

Hang on for the ride
Drink from her stream, manifest from the inside
Submit to the rule of her evil love
Skin like a dove that’s stained with demon’s blood

My eyes are covered with flesh, she fills my senses
As we inhale the smoke, she spills her wicked wishes
Once the moon has eclipsed, I shall bear witness
Driven into the ground by my demonic mistress

Hang on for the ride
Drink from her stream, manifest from the inside
Submit to the rule of her evil love
Skin like a dove that’s stained with demon’s blood
Track Name: Whistleblowers
Behold the visions of the ancient ones
They hide the secrets of our quickly fading dreams

Rescue what’s left of our misery; I kill in secret
The pain it will move across centuries; your spirit escapes so I seize it
We’ve stumbled for miles just to realize; death won’t set us free
We use our last breath just to criticize; can’t see past the trees

It’s over long ago
Don’t see your face anymore

Paid my dollar for the levitation
Don’t be late for the fool’s celebration
Learn to swim in a pool of rats
Daddy just left and he ain’t coming back

Oooh, baby don’t let him go
He ain’t comin’ back home no more
Baby don’t let him go
He ain’t comin’ on home no more

Behold the visions of the ancient ones
They hide the secrets of our quickly fading dreams
Track Name: Sobchak
Instrumental
Track Name: Glitter: The Devil's Horn
I will not be condemned
I shed my blood again

Over the mountain comes the sound of trumpets far and wide
The hooves of predatory mastodons released tonight
One million blades have been contained inside his unmarked tomb
We’ll breathe right through your open wound

I will not be condemned
I shed my blood again

Prepare for sacrifice
Bodies stack as angels fall tonight
The devil’s horn will summon them home
GLITTER light the way this night
Track Name: Eat The Sun (Bonus Track - Digital only)
The looking glass will crack reflecting me
Left upon its surface; shades of disbelief
A haunting proposition yes indeed
Release me from this realm of bloody seas

Away we go
Never felt so fucking low
Who would have known when we were young
That the moon would eat the sun

Gravity will pull us close tonight
The story writes itself just one more time
Broke in half, she cracks my shell again
Stealing breath that's burrowed deep within

Away we go
Never felt so fucking low
Who would have known when we were young
That the moon would eat the sun
