Urnfield 04:50
footsteps are accompanied by the scraping of the lifeless body i’m dragging this is all for you we will fall for you i can’t hurt if i no longer exist place my back at the base of the coffin bury myself conceal the blight
i hear you calling but there’s nothing that can pull me out from the earth the dirt in my eyes keeps them from closing tight my need to breathe has grown faint make me something, curate anything that brings back a true warmth
we were their keepers their ignorant captors lying in wait, they found a way withered and hungry for despair the night pales as their backdrop gloom consumes like starving wolves as their sounds disperse shrieks flood the city and submerge our souls
we’ve sewn rocks under our skin the only beauty within my hands are too heavy to keep me above water the sinking is what keeps us from making our way back i want the salt to wake me as it pours into my open wounds
refuting silence, inciting violence we have become uniquely distant reckless species unable to make a way take this life, dig up the earth bury it deep within the dirt the filth the hurt, it sinks our worth unbearable needs hail the end the fog recedes around the bends and to my knees i am the failure


"As soon as I hit play, I was immersed in a sonic maelstrom that felt like something I could drown my sorrows in. Their blend of post-rock sludge feels like being swept away in a murky river of rusty razor blades, dissonant currents tossing me against jagged rocks, punctuated by moments of fleeting, floating bliss." - Cvlt Nation

"...when you’re on the same level as it, empowers you, allowing you to feel things unique and ultraspecific. Much like gifting yourself to a lake, if you allow yourself to be submerged in Flood Peak‘s immersive sludge metal, it will reward you. It’s probably not for everyone – hell, I wasn’t super into this kind of stuff a few years ago – but it’s worth a try for those that want well-executed, abyssal music that rains down on you. Like the peeled-open palms of soil on the cover art, let the emotional torrents from Fixed Ritual catalyze growth within you and enjoy the moment." - Everything Is Noise

“Flood Peak's strength lies in their emotionally-connected heaviness that doesn't latch on to any particular sound or pacing to deliver impact. These songs hurt (in the best way possible) because Flood Peak knows why they should, and they pass that knowledge onwards.” - Invisible Oranges
