Jyri Straechav Thira's EP is delightful little thing, it makes me both grin in pleasure at the ridiculously overcompressed industrial metal with mechanical samples and noisy synths -- but it also makes me feel all nostalgic. This album reminds me my own band's second album in it's ridiclously heavy soundscape. The album is mixed competently but it is compressed to such extent that you really have to enjoy punishing music to like this album. I personally enjoy it quite a bit, so give it a try. Favorite track: Release.

Track Name: Release
Anchored to you inside these walls secluded from the truth
of the potential harbored in my heart
now it cuts through your indifference unforgiven it will be set free
I will take you if you'll let me
Why can't you hear this
I'm shouting so close to you
Please hear me
Words fall in front of your face
You blindly tread on them grin-
ding your heels into the world we've made
This plea brushed off as you strike
back impossible to reach
You through the facades you maintain
No, I won't
give up I'll keep
Trying to reach
You as long as
I can, screaming
spitting blood in your face
If you won't look at
me, know you need this
Too. Now
How can you know this with my caustic voice and your deafened ears
Now you can't hear what I can no longer say
Track Name: The Corroded
Look away and it fades - this cold steel of my will

Shake as I panic to wipe this off, but it won't come clean
Use all I have to try and grind through, but it won't come clean

These thoughts - sealed inside slowly eat through my
Mind and bleed out

Cracked paint on these thin walls, mock the smile I can't wear

These thoughts - sealed inside slowly eat through my
Mind and bleed out
They fill my ... Throat, and I choke

Look away and it fades - the cold steel of my will.

This stench on my hands, my skin, my breath, my lips, you can't wash shit off shit.
Track Name: Left to Kneel
Beyond this carried failure
Past what little hope we have and
through great lengths we go to destroy
Work to foster the
festering fodder of our
self pity and fail our selves

No. Give ourselves cause to
stretch gasp and
rise. we do reach above
to grasp this

There is something there, something that we
deny outside of our crippled reach

The cusp of something amazing
we may never grasp

we must climb up, fists clenched
fight our urge to relent

Beyond this carried failure
Past what little hope we have and
through great lengths we go to destroy
Work to foster the
festering fodder of our
self pity and fail our selves

drenched in sweat remembering when our
words held up what
our lives can't be but
strive to become

we are determined to
die completely breathless
Track Name: In Sinking Earth
Pull at these chains, bound to bone trying to save my fad-
ing world as it falls away. Fear hot as the burn in
my limbs, blood choking my heart, thick acrid poison with
no relief from lungs rendered useless by panicked
screams I
Grasp at these chains to hold this up blinded by the fear of failing you
And now I
Pull at these chains bound to bone trying to hold up our fading
World. Tear at the anchors, splitting bone to marrow
Set myself
Free cut ties and begin free fall. Can't make myself stop as
I still
Grasp at these chains to hold this up blinded by the fear of failing you
No
Even as I manage to steel myself again, fighting to keep this from falling it drags me down with it
No

Tear out the anchors
Splitting bone to marrow
Pull these screws from my flesh
Bleed out to set me free
Track Name: Through the Collapse
Tear this out, sever the ties breaking away as
I look back desperate for one last look at you

And now I won't
Call your name
As this pain steals my
Breath

Left to stand shaking on my own legs
Threatening to buckle, letting me drop down
On my knees fighting back screams meant for you

Clutch at this hole in my chest
Burn for strength to turn away

Tear this out, sever the ties breaking away as
I look back desperate for one last look at you

And now I won't
Call your name
As this pain steals my
Breath

As I drop down
On my knees, fighting back screams meant for you
Choking on excuses meant to save myself

Tear this out sever the ties breaking away as
I look back desperate for one last look at you
No, I won't give in to this
