For hundreds of your generations I have stood the test of time No storm or beast has bothered me. Growing in both grace and wisdom I am the stolid child of Earth Older than Methuselah. I am Prometheus – I am the ancient one. Your kind was grubbing in the dirt When first the Sunlight kissed my trunk Secure in my mountain fastness. I was my Mother’s favoured son I meditated on the stars Older than your Christ or Buddha. I am Prometheus – I am the martyred one. I am Prometheus, and you have killed me. Murder! The whole world shivers… Murder! As down bites the axe… Horror! What have you done? Murder! What have you done? I am Prometheus – I am the martyred one. I am Prometheus, and you have killed me.

I will not tolerate Your subtle knives anymore. Consumed in the fires of my frustration My anger’s building like a volcanic wave Pour on the anger and light the nerve-fuse And set off this conflagration. I will not tolerate Your subtle knives anymore. The rational voice has been stoned into silence By the livid mob of seething outrage They’ve beaten me senseless and given me power And set off this chain reaction. I am the roaring flow of lava I’ll melt you where you stand Sweep you from my path I’ll bury you in the past. I am the roaring flow of lava I’ll melt you where you stand Sweep you from my path I’ll bury you in the past. I’ll bury you in my past Bury you in my past! I will not tolerate Your subtle knives anymore.

Deep, so deep - many fathoms deep Below This crust of earth A frozen cancer moves From slumber awakened Reaching for the surface In an octopus stretch. Calm, so still – the surface sleeps Ignorance Is truly bliss. The ice shards split Into the ocean penetrate A lithium reaction In cataclysmic motion. Cold! The sea is boiling, my flesh is freezing This foaming ice… The sea is boiling, my flesh is freezing Europa’s twin is born. Try as I might I cannot escape. Cold! The sea is boiling, my flesh is freezing This foaming ice… The sea is boiling, my flesh is freezing Europa’s twin is born. Encased in ice Alone in the void Our world now slowly spins Circling the Sun Encased in ice But devoid of warmth and life Devoid Of warmth of life!

Triumph 05:35
I’ve been weak for far too long Weakened by self-doubt But kept apiece by anger. But kept apiece by anger. I’ve lost all sense of self-resolve And wallowed in my apathy, Assailed from every side By the demons that I’ve made. I’ve been weak for far too long Weakened by self-doubt But kept apiece by anger. But kept apiece by anger. Lonely And without hope For myself I have vainly groped, Lost And drifting helpless Totally Fucking defenceless! I’ve been gone for far too long Subsumed within my twin So now I light the flames… So now I light the flames! I’ve recovered strength and pride I’ll no longer live in lethargy, Building up from deep inside Banishing what once enslaved. Resolved, and with defiance For my will is now a giant! Resolved, and with defiance For my will is now a giant! Smash my chains to pieces Smash my chains to pieces Smash my chains to pieces Smash my chains to pieces Smash my chains to pieces I’ll never regret this.

Proliferation is the bastard spawn of progress: As invention wars with entropy it strikes a fatal blow. Obsolescence is its brother in this war dance. Together they kill technology And usher in decay… Stuck in Jevon’s Paradox Swimming in the quicksand, Stuck in Jevon’s Paradox Where the future is the past. The cadence of consumption creates cacophony! And in this mass migration it masks our misery. Deaf to all we hear, blind to reality Finity is the cage we cannot break The law We can’t escape. Efficiency is the lusting praying mantis In the moment of success it tastes oblivion. Progress is the lie of our presumption And in its arrogance It blinds us to Eventuality. Stuck in Jevon’s Paradox Drowning in the quicksand, Stuck in Jevon’s Paradox Accelerating fast! Stuck in Jevon’s Paradox Drowning in the quicksand, Stuck in Jevon’s Paradox Where the future is the past.

Go! One hundred times one thousand Years have blurred beneath their stride Over earth and pine and snow, The pack, unchallenged in their pride… Howling at the moon unveiled Eyes gleaming in its light The Alpha moves to the front, Muscular and healthy The wolf is in his prime Exultation in the hunt. On the trail keen senses are alert Ahead, prey moving through the spruce Ground-eating pace across this harshest land Wears it down across the miles… Struggling, the snow is deep The air is icy cold Exhaustion makes the bull moose weak, Closing in, the grey wolves near The pack is feeling bold As now they smell the scent of fear: They move in for the kill… A dash of speed The flash of teeth, A gout of blood Now time to feast. Death in the Yukon! * 4 One hundred times one thousand Years have blurred beneath their stride Over earth and pine and snow, The pack, unchallenged in their pride! Death in the Yukon! * 4

I stand at the edge of the gloaming trees Rank upon rank upon file of watching Silent sentinels observing as I stand in panicked contemplation. Darkness clouds my peripheral vision And in my wake the forest petrifies. But before my feet the delta stretches With endless potential beckoning… Yet my feet are bound by fear And the choice restricts my breathing. Yet my feet are bound by fear And the choice restricts my breathing. Restricts my breathing! Mist and wraiths obscure the horizon Here the Sun is weak and distant And without illumination I have lost my way… I have lost my way! And without illumination I have lost my way. And without illumination I have lost my way. And without illumination I have lost my way.

Kelpie 07:56
“Hold fast there, pilgrim-traveller! Hold fast your haste. ‘The hour is come but not the man’, spake the Kelpie of your fate!” “Your faerie tale is heresy”, dismissed the man of faith “I will ford the Conan here, though her banks be bowed in spate.” Death is the black horse that rides you – to your grave! Death is the black horse that devours you – underneath the waves! Down by the river’s bank, there stood the beast Waiting, as dark as pitch and sleekit in majesty. “A gift from God!” the weary pilgrim cried, and he mounted the steed But hands stuck fast, fright filled his soul; too late, he realised his mistake… Death is the black horse that rides you – to your grave! Death is the black horse that devours you – underneath the waves! Once only did the pilgrim shriek, as the Kelpie reared and turned And with a noise like thunder, into the deepest churn it plunged… Death is the black horse that rides you – to your grave! Death is the black horse that devours you – underneath the waves! And whence the sunrise came the crofter ventured to the Conan And found the pilgrim’s heart steaming bloody in the morning.

Stormchaser 07:52
Stormchaser! Feel the force, the fury of Nature In the sky, it rends the clouds Feel the force of the gathering power Feel the force, and your blood quickens. Feel the force, the Prairie is hidden Beneath the darkness of the storm Feel the force as it smothers the Sun Feel the force as the gods unleash their hail… Stormchaser! Into the violence you have gone… Stormchaser! You are the fool that tempts the gods! On the edge, your nerves are afire As you drive into the swirl On the edge your instruments keening On the edge, the adrenaline surge On the edge, the flashes of lighting The banshee wind is filling your mind On the edge as it changes direction On the edge as the twister screams for you… Bombardment begins Destruction descends To punish your temerity The sky will swallow you whole. Pitiful animal Pitiless sky No god of mercy comes for you! Pitiful animal Pitiless sky No god of mercy comes for you And so you die…. No god of mercy comes No god of mercy comes No god of mercy comes for you

about

"Hammerdrone’s “Clone of Europa” brings to mind bands like Behemoth, Rotting Christ and even Amon Amarth at times yet the group’s sound is definitely its own; the album blends melody and brutality perfectly... If you are a death metal fan you owe it to yourself to check out Hammerdrone." 90/100 - www.extrememetal.tv

"Hammerdrone offers a no bullshit, no synths, no clean vox, in your face fifty minutes of the most exciting music 2014 has delivered so far to my ears." - www.tzeeeac.com

"...some serious soundscaping and atmosphere building abilities on the band's part. If you're into death metal or melodic death metal at all, I can't recommend Clone of Europa enough." - www.needsmorenoisegate.blogspot.ca
