about

Mutant Scum Brooklyn, New York

As far as we can tell, these creatures were somehow formed underground out of the decades of industrial waste festering in Brooklyn's Newtown Creek. These however are our best educated guesses and their true origins remain unknown.

-Deke Cain: Acting Chair and Spokesperson of S.E.W.E.R. NYC

Track Name: Rise And Slime
RISE AND SLIME
WELCOME TO THIS LIFE
OPEN YOUR EYES
GO FORTH AND TERRORIZE

AN ANCIENT TOME, LOST ABANDONED LONG AGO
HE HOLDS IT NOW, ITS SECRETS YET REMAIN UNKNOWN
HIS WORDS RING OUT, ECHO THROUGH THE DARKEST NIGHT
HE TURNS THE PAGES

RISE AND SLIME

THE BOOK, IT LIVES, SPEAKING IN FORGOTTEN TONGUES
CRIES OUT FOR BLOOD, DEATH THE ONLY THING IT LOVES
TURNS TO THE WASTE IN THE ABSENCE OF ANOTHER LIFE
HE TAKES A DRINK

RISE AND SLIME

MUTATED FLESH, CHANGES DEEP WITHIN HIS BONES
FROM THE SLIME, CREATURES NOW BEGIN TO GROW
OF YOUR WASTE THEY WERE COMPRISED
NOW THEY'LL BRING FORTH YOUR DEMISE!
Track Name: Sick Bay
VESSELS STRIPPED OF ARMOR
THERE IS NO SAFE HARBOR
LOOK TO THE ORIGIN FOR CURES

TOO FAR BEYOND THE BRINK
SHIT WHERE WE EAT AND DRINK
A POX ON ALL THAT ONCE WAS PURE

ALL LIFE DERIVES FROM SLIME

AUTOTROPH PROGENY
ENTROPIC DESTINY
FOR PARASITES WHO MAR THE DEPTHS

PESTILENCE OF THE PAST
NEAR IMMINENT COLLAPSE
NO MORE REPRIEVE FOR RECKLESSNESS

ALL LIFE DERIVES FROM SLIME
GREAT HASTE MAKES WASTE
Track Name: Sludge Castle
SLIME WIZARD!
YOUR POWER GROWS AND YOU EXPAND YOUR MIND
SCUM SORCERER!
YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN NEED A PLACE TO HIDE

FAR BELOW THEIR MODERN TOWER
UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DOLLAR SIGNS
A RIVER FLOWS OF TOXIC OIL
LEFT IGNORED SO THEY COULD GENTRIFY

THUNDERBOLTS, CATAPULTS
CASTLE WALLS REDUCED TO PILLARS OF SALT
TOXIC LUST, LEFT TO RUST
MOATS OF BUBBLING SLUDGE POISED TO ERUPT

NOXIOUS FUMES CALL TO THE WIZARD
THROUGH HIS SECOND SIGHT, TRAVERSE THE SEWERS IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT

FROM THE BOOK HE RECITES THE PASSAGE
WITH A SINGLE WORD HE CAN COMMAND LIFE
RADIATES, IT CHURNS AND BOILS
THE DORMANT WASTE BEGINS TO TWIST AND WRITHE

SLIME WIZARD!
YOUR POWER GROWS AND YOU EXPAND YOUR MIND
SCUM SORCERER!
YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN FOUND A PLACE TO HIDE

TENTACLES CRASH THROUGH THE WINDOWS
ENWREATHE THE STRUCTURE ALL ALONG THEIR CLIMB
CONSIDER THIS YOUR NOTICE OF EVICTION
FROM THE LAND-LORDS OF SLUDGE AND SLIME

THUNDERBOLTS, CATAPULTS
CASTLE WALLS REDUCED TO PILLARS OF SALT
TOXIC LUST, LEFT TO RUST
MOATS OF BUBBLING SLUDGE POISED TO ERUPT

[UNINTELLIGIBLE - S.E.W.E.R. ANNOTATION]

MONUMENTS OF EXCESS
MONOLITHS OF EXCREMENT
THE SUM OF ALL MAN HATH WROUGHT
SCUM ALWAYS RISES TO THE TOP
Track Name: The Nightmare Of Being
UNFORESEEN CONSEQUENCES OF GODPLAY
IGNORANCE TAKES ITS TOLL
WITH EACH BREATH, ANGUISH ACCUMULATES
PLEASE EXTINGUISH THE SPARK

RECREATE THE MISTAKE
RELEGATE A WRETCHED FATE

THIS HIDEOUS EXISTENCE SHOULD NOT BE
RACKED WITH GUILT AND GRIEF
THE FRUITS OF LABOR, THE FOLLY OF MAN
THE NASCENT NIGHTMARE OF BEING

SENSELESS SUFFERING
LEFT WITH NOTHING
NIGHTMARES OF BEING
Track Name: Out Of The Sewers, Onto The Streets
CASUALTIES OF STAGNANT SEAS
A VIOLENT SWARM OF HALF BREEDS ATTACK THE STREETS
THE GRAND DISEASE OF APATHY
THE EYE OF THE STORM, HUMANITY GASPS TO BREATHE

SCUM OF THE EARTH
SERFS OF THE LORD
BLOOD OF THE ANCIENTS... REBORN

OUT OF THE SEWERS
ONTO THE STREETS
INTO THE BLOODSTREAM... DISEASE

CLEANLINESS, GODLINESS
FRAUDULENT PROMISES WERE ALL NONSENSE
PANDEMIC CIRCUMVENTS THE CONTINENT
ALL SHARE COMMON DESCENT

SCUM OF THE EARTH
SERFS OF THE LORD
BLOOD OF THE ANCIENTS... REBORN

OUT OF THE SEWERS
ONTO THE STREETS
INTO THE BLOODSTREAM... DISEASE
Track Name: Black Mayonnaise
LATE SEPTEMBER ‘78
DISASTROUS SPILL DISCOVERED DECADES TOO LATE
POLLUTING THE CREEK, TAINTING THE SOIL
MILLIONS OF GALLONS OF HAZARDOUS OIL

DRILL OUT THE BLACK, YOU’RE OUT OF TIME
NEVER LOOK BACK, THIS TOXIC GRIME

OUT OF YOUR HANDS, THE ONUS AND BLAME
YOUR SKIN OF EVIL HAS BEEN SHED AWAY
LAYERS OF FILTH, FATHOMS OF WASTE
MANIFESTING INTO BLACK MAYONNAISE

DRILL OUT THE BLACK, YOU’RE OUT OF TIME
NEVER LOOK BACK, THIS TOXIC GRIME

BRICK BEHEMOTHS
CONCRETE BEDS
CAUSTIC RUNOFF
TOXIC SPREADS

CENTURIES OF RIPE DECAY
WATERWAYS COAGULATE
SURFACE SHEEN REFLECTS THE GRAY
OF INDUSTRY’S EMACIATED FACE

BRICK BEHEMOTHS
CONCRETE BEDS
CAUSTIC RUNOFF
TOXIC SPREADS

DRILL OUT THE BLACK, YOU’RE OUT OF TIME
NEVER LOOK BACK, THIS TOXIC GRIME
DRILL OUT THE BLACK, WILL EAT YOUR MIND
