tomvar It is never redundant to scream a whispered truth. And Savages is an enormous scream about what most of us in our generation are well aware, but maybe too aware to actually be emotionally disturbed by it. It's little to say that it was the best metal album of the year, and shows an artistic maturity and commitment that is always greatly appreciated.
Also have to recognize the great collaboration with Eggeh, bringing a new breath of quality into the AV domain of the metal scene. Favorite track: Utopia.

Douglas Jenkinson Probably the most interesting Djent/Progressive metal album of recent times! Mixes all sorts of styles beautifully, masterful production, fascinating concept, and top notch musicianship!

Knowledge is a burden, Ignorance will bring me peace Knowledge is a burden and grey matter tastes so bitter Knowledge is a burden, Ignorance will bring me peace Knowledge is a burden, it shatters my fucking inner piece Every morning I get horror, war, rape Slaughter, gore, hate, it's more than I can take I get a sore heart and a headache thinking of such poor fates So I finish my coffee and just walk away Close my eyes Close my eyes, play it blind, face to problems I can't solve I don't mind Me, myself, and I I see it all happen, standing within the walls of freedom I see that venom runs through the veins of this global kingdom I see it all happen, Sugarman, won't you hit me with another blue pill End my sorrow, I won't follow any rabbits, won't crawl Down any fucking burrow I won’t crawl down any burrow I just want to live in this concrete paradise Under a constellation of electric eyes, I was made to shine I don't mind being spied; I have nothing to hide I play the game by the rules and the game plays me for a fool I play the game by the rules, the game plays me for a fool I play the game by the rules, but the game plays me

So fucking late I am so fucking late So many things to see Reality is softer through an lcd screen Rigged Esthetics and fucking capitalistic dreams All seem in my reach Damn I should be flying, floating amongst the stars My wings are spread and flapping but it’s just too hard Sun is far, why is the wax already melting, drooling down ? Lost in this maze, I gaze up to the Milky Way My ego goes up and down twerking on this symphony I'm a bird, I'm a plane, I'm a god, now I'm sucked back to mediocrity How can I be so weak? I'm a piece of art Sadness has no price for everything else there’s MasterCard But it's all possible; all accessible I won't be another sad clown in this circus But it's all possible, so fucking buyable Sculpted in silicone anyone can stand on Mount Olympus In Walmart I trust It’s just a race for the newest grail I'll put my lips to each cup, to every vase I'll pull out the blade Holy syrup running through my veins Modern slaves have no fucking chains, I’m in debt Damn I’m so hollow just call me a shrink I’m a blank note in desperate need of ink I’m a wooden doll lacking a spell A church that’s lost its fucking bell Possessions for an empty shell Give me a fate, set me on fire, make me a flame Let me enlighten the worthless and plain It's a lifelong quest But in the end it all fake, lost in bullshit, I pretend and feign

Citizen of the free world, slaving all week Awaiting Saturday night fever to do the freak And it goes 1, 2, 3 sink in a soothing coma Bottoms up ; Will all my life be... Work hard, die bored, modern men do it well No crown, no spark, in this corpse I'm just a dying cell Work hard, die bored, modern men do it well Hopes are scarred; I’m the pawn that dreamt of ruling citadels To be a hero, a star, an astronaut, I bought But I was just compensating I wanted to smile like the guy of the pasta box But it was just advertising crap I've seen the true face of metropolis One hand stabs me while the other one offers me dope Its third eye shines on my neurosis I walk amongst the crowd, a zombie, a fucking clone I had opinions and dreams I lost along the way For a wife, a kid, a house and a big ass SUV In suit and tie, I work my long term suicide I don't have the guts to fucking fight Work hard, die bored, modern men do it well I’m like Superman, life is my kryptonite Modern men do it fucking well There isn't a day without this weight on my shoulders Without the burden of the crown the kid I was made out of paper But carnival is over, no more craft or glitter Projections of my future should have remained in the past I can't let go, can’t let go of this mask I have to change but don't feel up to the task I'm falling, I’m drowning in this abundance horn I have it all and I still want more If my life is ok why am I miserable ? I’m so fucking miserable I'm sorry for wasting your world For a way to wonder, for a crooked offer I'm sorry For the wrecking, the oppression, the slaughter Well fuck you all, I haven't done any of these horrors I haven't done anything but dream of a throne and a scepter They did it all; they did it fucking all, I'm just a puppet I’m just a wireless powerless doll Is the puppet guilty of the actions of its master ?

They say that knowledge is a weapon And ignorance is a big ass fucking dildo They sharpened their blades on slow brains and supersized egos Their knightly act is a bloody fraud King's sword lays deep in the people's rock They swore five billion peace and plenty Turned seven into junkies with greed and gluttony Now twelve billion crowd this celestial rock And they keep up the good work, like they don't give a fuck Bees are dead, plants need sexual assistance Eden has turned to sand in an instant Melted ice had the oceans rise, Fear the mice, kill the rats, 'cause medieval plagues are back Soon humanity's trial will begin Will the snake be a scapegoat once again ? Will the eyes stay sealed face to the blood spilt ? There is no innocence, only 50 shades of guilt Who fell for their tricks ? Who thought it legit ? Who funded this shit ? Who's fucking hands are clean ? Who fell for their tricks ? Who thought it legit ? There is no innocence The Horn is empty, resources are rare They're licking ivory for crumbs to spare their despair People are scared, they're fucking wiggling, crawling like insects They think planting three trees will avoid the tempest They're trying so hard it's laughable, hoping for a miracle From fear to hate, the trial starts today The fall begins, wings are ablaze They'll cheer their states, the trial starts today The fall begins, it's fucking checkmate

Ink 04:20 video
They've brought mankind to ruin, like they've invested in coffins The masses are growing so they'll give the dog a bone Skip the lynching by throwing the first stone Reveal the scapegoat Select a minority, Black, Latino, Muslim Will it be refugees ? They'll bomb them on the fucking beach Hear the final countdown, all hope is lost Sheeps are bleating around pieces of cloth They all hail the nations when the world's at stake Riot, war, invasions, be predator rather than prey They all hail the nations, they'll take the fucking bait Riot, war, invasions, how could this be a mistake ? Battles are won by white collars History is written with the ink of the victors Follow the leader, believe their dogma, don't think A fact is a fact, until the wheel spins, until empires waltz Adhere to their cause, befallen revolutionaries There's no freedom of thought These bigots utilize a cross to justify their wrongs with the blood on their hands This world is too far gone ''Arise children of the nation The day of glory has arrived A putrid form of tyranny Has raised its ugly banner Can you hear them in the fields ? Howling are these fearsome soldiers They're dwelling inside the mist To slit the throats of man, woman, and child'' Arise, children of the nation With blood it's written on the walls You have no rights, your life is controlled And taken away unless you conform This world is too far gone

A step away from hell, in dark times, they're still scamming Selling tickets for heaven, renting Noah's ark cabins But their ship will sink in the abyss They still get hard on the weight of their wallets It's absurd, they can fill their pockets; the paper will burn It's time to accept their system's defeat Profit is obsolete All those years Barking at them, announcing mayhem, begging them to stop Knees deep in shit they'll say that on the water they shall walk They've kneeled their whole life It won't be hard for them to crawl But fuck them all, they've sold their fucking souls Still pictured as prophets, still worshiped as gods From ashes to ashes, from lust to disgust Witness the bursting of the human bubble End of the great, death of the simple Witness the bursting of the human bubble Absurdity leads the human struggle Fuck this shit Thank the elders for their way of life Thank the leaders for their foresight Thank the leaders for their foresight Thank the past for the lost fight Progress could only be ahead Pushing forward over the cliff's fucking edge Now they're flying, alive but already dead Already shattered corpses on the stony bay They can beg, whine, pray Even the foam won't wash their hands clean They can beg, whine, pray Because tonight the shepherds Die amongst their sheeps They'll fucking beg Die amongst their sheeps, they'll fucking beg

Ignorance was the weight that took us down the hill It was the blade Ignorance was the cage and knowledge is the key don't you know that Knowledge will always be our key Allow ourselves to be free

We’re the orphans of humanity We only learn the price of things once they've disappeared Remains of a dying breed This is the witness of blank minds in a colorblind reality We’re looking for answers to questions we can’t conceive Complaints of a frying brain we’ll lay the myths as cornerstones for our society We’re all lost, we’ve breathed the omega breeze We’re branded, ain’t brain-dead, we’re brand new Our minds are clean our bright eyes On this broken world are blinded We’re all haunted, bonded in this holy lack of memory We’re confused, hollow, divided Claim to remember and we’ll bend a fucking knee We ride wrecked cars on bull backs through this global no man’s land we’re fucking nomads, We’re hunchbacks clinging to the thread of a long gone past What will grow through the ashes ? is this the end, is this the end or the genesis ? Will trees grow tall through the carcasses ? are we just ants under a giant’s matches ? will we be burning corpses ? What will grow through the ashes ? is this the end, is this the end or the genesis ? Will roots push through the asphalt cracks ? Will we choose utopia or whiplashes ? will this hell be everlasting ? Green patches maculate the concrete A budding life bluntly stains misery alone and incomplete, we stand untouched at the center of this new born beauty We’re parasites, are we part of this scheme ? We’re parasites, are we even human anymore ? Damaged is the new black

Utopia 05:33 video
Haunted and scared, seeking the shelter of a cave, we crawled down a burrow Down below, remains of a fallen world, signs of the elders and carved on iron plates, a three ray sun Curious and hungry for treasures of the past we crawled deeper, and deeper, and deeper and at the earth’s core we met the divine Eyes rise to the sky, we're terrified Two sun shine, our paths divide Cherish the vine or the artifact Witness the gods comeback We scan the climes Look around Look around and see the ruins of our past glory Have we forgotten ? Have we become this weak ? Will we kneel, accept defeat ? Are we but ghosts of a lost humanity ? Fuck no, Fuck the horn, Fuck the willow Chaos must be reformed We’ve lost a battle but the war’s still on We’ve bit the dust but we shall rise as one we’re walking on a rope, above above the void we stand alone we’ve been going backwards this whole time taking future blows from behind one day we’ll fall cut the trunk roots will still grow flowers blossom through the snow now we’re walking on a rope we can choke it with smoke life will prevail Utopia must burn We are the ones that did not ascend Untouched by light, Unburnt by flames All hail the liver and the snake We’ve been given a second chance, a fresh start A blank page to lay down the words of our new civilization We must claim back our throne at the top of evolution Join the symbiosis, accept absolution We must bring back the golden age We are but a link in life’s mighty chain We will not live like beasts Mankind’s fortune doesn’t grow on trees This utopia is a fucking deceit why should we take the path of failed men why should we return to the wolf’s den we need a change of scale Make this world great again, or make it right Build walls, divide the land, or unite

We will not fast for the one that has smashed us We will not cast away a glorious past just become preys, the beasts will not harass us We ain’t slaves, we’re the fucking masters We will not bow, we won’t bend under the weeping willow’s whiplashes Our heart aches but we won’t hide flayed backs under pine jackets We haven’t kicked the bucket Like the phoenix, we don’t just pass away We prevail, the eggs lay in the ashes Dig out the hatchet, we’ll level the surface Here comes the hatching, we’ll pour this planet a concrete grave We’re Survivors, we’re the future We’re the builders of the new eden For the elders, for ancestors Glory comes with our bleeding We’re Survivors, we’re the future We’re the builders of the new eden For the elders, for ancestors Glory comes with our bleeding To Mankind we give our newborns Feel the earth shake, hear the masses grow we’ll build babel from climes to core No puny lord can break us anymore We shall rise as one, hear the masses grow We’re the monsters that outsmarted frankenstein We’re the fucking golems outliving the rabbi We’ll never feel again, never feel the hard blow of a bitter end Together we’re unbreakable, we shall rise as one and one shall rise above, relieve us from the burdens Wearing crown and glove, rule on the castle for the greater good, reign on the simple in the name of god We shall rise for one, serve praize, kneel become the slaves in the fields, soldiers on the siege Together we’re expendable, we shall die for one Dark times will be legend, sons will forget our demons Dark times will be legend, And it will all start again History is a fucking circle From day one we’ve been savages They’re all fucking savages I’ll always be a savage

about

« Savages » is the second album by the french combo The Dali Thundering Concept.

« Savages » is a dystopian anticipation project.
Through this concept-album, the band brings us a credible scenario about the future of humanity - if it does not change its standards of life and its vision of the world.

What are the consequences of the global warming, the divisions between the peoples and the politics of nostalgia ?
