    TAVU took our time making this new album, and we are extraordinarily proud of it. It is the best collection of songs we have composed, and Leo Alvarez made the mix sound gigantic, textured, and impactful.

    We dedicated as much attention to detail on creating the art for the album as in recording the album itself.

    Angel Resto, our inhumanly talented graphic designer, went all out to capture the massive power of the album's music as well as the complex themes within it.

    Now you can also own a physical copy of our amazing new album. Go on, you know you want to!

Track Name: Clamor Victorium
Hay que superar…
Hay que conquistar…
Hay que derrotar…
Hay que derrumbar…
Los muros del terror
Track Name: Sin Miedo
Cuidado con el estado
De ese orden establecido
Que el control es su objetivo
Y te han obligado a aceptarlo
Pues el orden natural de las cosas
No se siente tan natural
Se siente más bien artificial
Una mentira no tan piadosa

No es fácil ser el primero
No es fácil romper el hielo
No es fácil cargar el peso
De andar sin miedo

El viento del norte azota tu manera de subsistir
Y nadie protege el derecho que tienes para existir
Empuña tus manos y conviértete en pura convicción
Transfórmate en objetivo, se la causa para la reacción

No es fácil ser el primero
No es fácil romper el hielo
No es fácil cargar el peso
De andar sin miedo

Tiempo de resucitar
Vuelve a mirar
Como si fuese la primera vez
Sin despreciar
Toda tu posibilidad de ser
Y encontrarás
Que aquel que por primera ves mintió
Tenía igual
Necesidad de lo que una vez sintió
Que era capaz
De conquistar en su máxima expresión
Al derrotar
Y derrumbar los muros del terror

No es fácil andar sin miedo
Track Name: Take a Bow
I don’t know if I can hide any longer
This satisfaction that fills me up inside
When it is brought to my attention
The repulsion that you can no longer hide

The stench is caused by putrefaction
Built up, piled on, by methods of distraction
Into that fatal corner of your depraved intentions
From which it spread your toxic infection

And I don’t know if you can hide any longer
All that repulsion that fills you up inside
When it is brought to your attention
The desolation that you cannot hide

The waiting, the feeling
Of knowing you’ll be on display
Unveiling, revealing
The unworthiness of your ways

Take the stage and take a bow and witness all the devastation you have wrought
It’s not like you made just an honest mistake

Out of control
Have no restraint
Cause when you’re wronged
Almost everyday
The only peace you feel
Is when against a wall
All your knuckles bleed
Remembering your foes

And if that should fail, what else is at risk?
Other consequences that you can’t foresee
How many dreams must you finally drown?
How many hopes can you bury in the ground?
Some simple choices that everyone makes
Year after month after week after day
Trying to find a reason, another excuse
To ignore all the hurtful things that you do

The only thing that keeps me from getting to you
The only thing that keeps me from turning into you

Is restraint
Restraint, it’s what you lack the most
And it’s the only thing
That keeps my anger in place
From taking hold of you
And draining your life away
So now…

Take the stage and take a bow and witness all the devastation you have wrought
It’s not like you made just an honest mistake
Track Name: Jack
Depredadores, no teman más
Sus inseguridades voy a descuartizar
Horrores nuevos al paladar
Elaborados para cualquier apetito saciar
Aristócratas, no hay que temer
Sus ansiedades voy a desaparecer
Implacable al proveer
Elaborados asesinatos sin resolver

Ahora soy una obsesión
Solo otra fascinación

Pues admito que no existe nada
Más puro que el filo de una navaja
No tiene prejuicios, no otorga ventajas
El acto sencillo de una puñalada

Desde el frío infierno le escribo, querido Sr. Lusk
Le envío este medio riñón
Preservado para usted
Mientras la otra mitad, a fuego lento y voraz
Poco a poco voy a devorar
Con gusto y placer
Si usted puede esperar, tal vez le podría enviar
La navaja que para cortar
Con ella utilicé

Atrápeme si puede

Encájame si puedes
Dentro de una teoría
O dentro de la fantasía
Que más te conviene

El símbolo de todo aquello que no puedes comprender, me llaman Jack el destripador
El símbolo de todo aquello que no quieres entender, me llaman Jack el destripador

Aristocracias
Depredadoras
Un mundo sin héroes a quien venerar
Es una tragedia
Que más se puede esperar
De una sociedad que hace inmortal… ¡a un animal!

Ahora soy una obsesión
Solo otra fascinación
Track Name: A System Without Honor
What has become your paramount?
The inner calling inside yourself
It used to be some childish dream
Now surrendered for the comfort of worshipping…

A system has no sense
Of itself or no one else
A system simply is
It doesn’t need or bleed
Why would you worship that
Which doesn’t need you back?

So give me your tired
And give me your poor
Give me the liberty
To shoot myself in the foot
Give me the chance to dance
Along the subtle lullaby
Of faceless negotiators
And the capitalization of time

What do you see
When you look at the screen
Pictographic representations
Two dimensional realities
What do you see
When you take a look at me
Certainly not a translation
Of what a person should be
So if this a representation then why we’re
Pretending to be, more than we are
Losing our souls, worshipping lies
Treasuring what’s feeding our pride
Choosing this bile we call a life
Instead of ourselves, so tell me now
What has become your paramount?

A system without shame
A system without emotion
A system without mercy
A system without honor…
Track Name: Antipoesia
La moral... lealtad
La moral... lealtad... la vanidad

Oculta detrás de tu elocuencia
Cada palabra que escribes está
Contaminada por una traición
Víctimas de tu falta de moderación

Antipoesía

Los medios no justifican el fin
Que le transmite a otros dolor
Interminablemente así
Vas destruyendo sin razón
Poniendo fuera de su lugar
La pasión donde estaba la dignidad

Antipoesía

Poniendo el talento
Donde iba la moral
Poniendo la vanidad
Donde iba la lealtad
Vas componiendo la destrucción...
Track Name: Courtesy
You wouldn’t care, and wouldn’t try
To shake hands with a leper, who’s to die
Right at your feet, spending his life
Spilling his blood in your eyes
A smile, a nod, a word, a jest,
Some spare change at best
and then out of sight
and out of mind

Locking your doors, washing your hands,
You can’t avoid,
Seeing the truth while sowing your eyes shut

You can’t afford
to see me as
something that feels
all that you see
through tv screens
is not real to you
a suffering that
you cannot feel

What makes you think that courtesy
Can take the place of true concern?
A smile cannot replace a soul
a gesture of a heart that’s burnt

Every day of your life
You keep walking away
From the humanity
That you’ve just left behind

Walking by while there is death at your feet
Yet by forgetting the whole world you still have blood on your hands
Which will not wash away

Those who don’t care about the pain in the world
They hold in their hands just as much responsibility for it
You may plead ignorance, and pretend that is bliss
Will not make you immune, and it will not take away your guilt
Track Name: Words of Salt and Ash
When your falsehood stains the air
It’s hard for anyone to breathe but you...
You smile...
With acid dripping from your teeth
In case you don’t know something
That for so long has been tried and true
From you...
We’ve all become anemic

Cause
Nothing you say
Bears a shred of truth
Nothing you do
Is worth any respect
Nothing you feel
Is good to anyone else

Ashes from within
The forest of your poisoned lies
Being purged by flame it burns
Ashes from within
The forest of your poisoned lies
Being spread too far away
It has to burn, burn, burn, burn

When you wrap your fingers ‘round
The arteries of honesty you feed
You gnaw, you lacerate our purity
In case you don’t know something
That for so long has been tried and true
To you, we’ve all become allergic

The only way you cannot lie
Is by ripping your tongue from your mouth
The only way you wont deceive
Is by shoving your eyes down your throat.
The only way you feel alive
Is by sinking your hands in your bile
The only way you’ll speak the truth
Is by carving your words in your bones

Heartless…
All of your actions have driven you down a heartless path

There has always been poison in your veins
It has always been winter in your heart
And your promises are all laced with suffering
Words of salt and ash, words of salt and fucking ash

Ash
The ash
From your lies
Stains the air
Just like blood
In the water
There’s no hope
To regain peace or clarity

Lies are spoken
Trust is broken
Words unspoken
Vows are broken
Bones are broken
Track Name: Apologia
Una justificación
Es lo más que se puede esperar
Por tantas disculpas acreditar
Es pérdida de humillación

Ya no aguanto más...

Cada vez que pides perdón
Otra puerta se cierra en tu ser
Miro a la ventana esperando ver
Una salida de esta prisión

Si mis disculpas, son errores al fin
Porque pido disculpas por disculpas que di
Y es un ciclo, es co-dependencia
Pues tengo que pedir disculpas para poder vivir

Pues
Ya no hay más disculpas
Ya no hay más excusas

No hay más perdones
Que exigir
Ni más disculpas
Soy libre al fin...

Ya no como cuentos
Pues ya no puedo más

¿Cuál es la razón?
¿Por qué me tengo que defender
Ante tu acusación?
Mi vergüenza no va a deshacer
Lo que ya sucedió
Tendrás que derrumbar ese altar
De conceptos en ti
Y que sólo tu haces real
Pues la palabra es viento al fin
Las palabras, son solo aire, se disuelven, en el aire...

Si no encuentras las respuestas
A lo que estas buscando
Y todo te va desilucionando
Date cuenta ya
Que es la pregunta lo que tienes que cambiar
Pues las palabras son suspiros que se pierden en el viento
La respuesta sólo se encuentra en el ser humano que tienes adentro
Track Name: My Kingdom Falls
The pride, the rise, and all deeds in the making
Creation, organization, and the will for the taking
No one to turn to, no one to look up to
Not one helping hand in my game
A victim, a witness and a defendant at my own case

Have you ever noticed that It’s never quite the same
To be in the front, carrying the torch, and take it to the end

The path that I have chosen, it was for me to take
And not for you or anybody else

I witnessed the peak of an age go down

So now I sit at the end
Wondering… will I be missed, or be despised as my kingdom falls?

To make a difference here
Requires courage to act
Cause most people despise
What you do for them
So please accept this sacrifice
The will to live, the will to die…

It’s easier to complain
Than doing things for yourself

Have you ever noticed that It’s never quite the same
To be in the front, carrying the torch, and take it to the end

The path that I have chosen, it was for me to take
And not for you or anybody else

Have I made a difference at all?
Will somebody cry when I’m gone?
How I’ll be remembered now?
As everyone and everything comes crumbling down… down…
So now I sit at the end
Wondering… will I be missed, or be despised as my kingdom falls?

So now I sit at the end
As my kingdom falls... wondering, will I be missed as my kingdom falls?
Track Name: Clamor Silentii
Perdido en las tinieblas
Un sueño se envenena
Y arrasa con todo en su camino
Las cosas que corrompen
El corazón de los hombres
Siempre se ocultan en el olvido

Todos tenemos, en la memoria
Historias tristes para contar
¿Dónde se encuentran, todas las voces
Que no se pueden nunca escuchar?

Ser, o no ser parte de esta divina comedia
Ver, o no ver como es una simple tragedia
Que nadie escucha aquello que nadie nunca escucha…

El grito del silencio explota los oídos
De aquellos pobres y desgraciados ciegos
Incapaces de ver en su propio reflejo
Las mentiras que forjan el infierno

Soñé promesas que no serían cumplidas
Las semillas de una nueva vida

Ser, o no ser parte de esta divina comedia
Ver, o no ver como es una simple tragedia
Que nadie escucha aquello que nadie nunca escucha…

Todos los sueños perdidos se encuentran escondidos en el grito del silencio…
Todas las voces perdidas se encuentran escondidas en el grito del silencio…
