Cool Nine Inch Nails

The album's techno industrial sound complimented perfectly with the lyrics' sense of desolation and fatalism.

Capital G

I pushed a button and elected him to office and a
He pushed a button and it dropped a bomb
You pushed the button and could watch it on the television
Those motherfs didn't last too long ha ha
I'm sick of hearing about the have's and the have not's
Have some personal accountability
The biggest problem with the way that we've been doing things is
The more we let you have the less that I'll be keeping for me

Well I used to stand for something
Now I'm on my hands and knees
Traded in my god for this one
And he signs his name with a capital G

Don't give a s about the temperature in Guatemala
Don't really see what all the fuss is about

Ain't gonna worry about no future generations and a
I'm sure somebody gonna figure it out
Don't try to tell me how some power can corrupt a person
You haven't had enough to know what its like
You're only angry cause you wish you were in my position
Now nod your head because you know that I'm right, alright!

Well I used to stand for something
But forgot what that could be
There's a lot of me inside you
Maybe you're afraid to see

Well I used to stand for something
Now I'm on my hands and knees
Traded in my god for this one
And he signs his name with a capital G

Cool Nine Inch Nails

Concept albums of dystopia were nothing new in rock music. Lyrics describing the real-liefe events of 9/11 and the Iraq War were, however. In this disturbing narrative by Trent Reznor, a fictional nuclear war between the U.S. and Iran is depicted in this future, as well as a "Bureau of Morality" which spied on citizens and eroded personal liberties, a reference of the then-current Patriot Act crushing dissent.

The Beginning Of the End

Down on your knees, you'll be left behind
This is the beginning
Watch what you think, they can read your mind
This is the beginning
I got my mark, see it in my eyes
This is the beginning
My reflection I don't recognize
This is the beginning

We think we climb so high
All up the backs we've condemned
We face our consequence
This is the beginning of the end

You wait your turn, you'll be last in line
This is the beginning
Get out the way, cause I'm getting mine
This is the beginning
God helps the ones that help themselves
This is the beginning
May be too late as far as I can tell
This is the beginning

We think we've come so far
On all our lies we depend
We face our consequence
This is the beginning of the end

Cool Nine Inch Nails

Between tour legs Nine Inch Nails gave a performance as part of the Year Zero game. A small group of fans received fictional in-game telephone-calls that invited them to a "resistance meeting" in a Los Angeles parking lot. Those who arrived were given "resistance kits", some of which contained cellphones that would later inform the participants of further details. After receiving instructions from the cellphones, fans who attended a fictional Art is Resistance meeting in Los Angeles were rewarded with an unannounced performance by Nine Inch Nails. The concert was cut short as the meeting was raided by a fictional SWAT team and the audience was rushed out of the building.

How long would it take before life would imitate art?

Zero-Sum

They're starting to open up the sky
They're starting to reach down through
And it feel like we're living in that split-second
Of a car crash
And time is slowing down
And if we only had a little more time
And this time
Is all there is
Do you remember the time we
And all the times we
And should have
And were going to
I know
And I know you remember
How we could justify it all
And we knew better
In our hearts we knew better
And we told ourselves it didn't matter
And we chose to continue
And none of this matters anymore
In the hour of our twilight
And soon it will be all said and done
And we will all be back together as one
If we will continue at all

Shame on us
Doomed from the start
May god have mercy
On our dirty little hearts
Shame on us
For all we've done
And all we ever were
Just zeros and ones

And you never get away
And you never get to take the easy way
And all of this is a consequence
Brought on by our own hand
If you believe in that sort of thing
And did you ever really find
When you closed your eyes
Any place that was still
And at peace
And I guess I just wanted to tell you
As the light starts to fade
That you are the reason
That I am not afraid
And I guess I just wanted to mention
As the heavens will fall
We will be together soon if we
Will be anything at all

Shame on us
Doomed from the start
May god have mercy
On our dirty little hearts
Shame on us
For all we've done
And all we ever were
Just zeros and ones

Red face Dimmu Borgir--'In Sorte Diaboli'

Nine Inch Nails was not alone in releasing a concept album that year. Norwegian symphonic black metal band Dimmu Borgir released 'In Sorte Diaboli', which told the story of a priest's assistant who departs his faith to become the Anti-Christ when he discovers supernatural powers, that which are known to be thelemic, where one becomes self-actualized by means of the occult. While the music was appealing with its combination of extreme metal and a classical orchestra, many music critics found the Faustian storyline premise tiresome and predictable. It was not very original.

The album featured the Devil as a female, nude from the waist up, as was noted often in medieval illustrations. Was there some sort of significance of evil, or the antithesis of Christianity, as being female in form? This was not simply a crticism of femininity, but in much pagan worship, female deities, or demonic entities, were plentiful in the pantheon of goddesses: Ashtoreth, the Queen of Heaven, in Mesopotamian mythology, Diana, goddess of the hunt for the Ephesians in Greece and Asia Minor, and Isis of the Egyptians. These were goddesses of fertility cults and the like.

The album cover below is a strategically covered sampler:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAmMcBQavKE

The Serpentine Offering

My descent is the story of everyman
I am hatred, darkness and despair
My descent is the story of everyman
I am hatred, darkness and despair

Evoked and entertained through centuries
Wrathful and sullen -- Dormant still

The ferocity pervades everywhere
Waiting to be released at last
Hear my offering
Ye bastard sons and daughters
Share my sacrifice
Share my sacrifice.

My descent is the story of everyman
I am hatred, darkness and despair

Reconcile not with the fear of the snake
But embrace it as your own
Inject its venom into your veins
And replant the seed that gives growth
Still shrouded in mystery
Until you arise above perception
A veil of ignorance is in motion
Continuing throughout generations

(A veil of ignorance is in motion
Continuing throughout multiple generations
Let me be the one that deliver you from the deceit
And back into perfect accordance with the laws of nature)

The snake is notoriously tempting
But the snake is fair
What is worse than not knowing?
To live or disappear?

The ferocity pervades everywhere
Waiting to be released at last
Hear my offering
Ye bastard sons and daughters
Share my sacrifice
Share my sacrifice

Red face Dimmu Borgir

The lineup of Dimmu Borgir was about to change as this album was the last to feature members ICS Vortex, Hellhammer and Mustis.

The Chosen Legacy

Hence I will anoint
And whisper wholeheartedly
The creed of Hades and beyond
As I succumb to inevitable sin

For I cannot enslave myself
With imaginary words of salvation
The hypocrisy that surrounds my temple
Is assisted by pretenders to the throne

The winds that blow purity
Signify my chosen legacy
I was born to opposition
A contender to creation

In Sorte Diaboli
In Sorte Diaboli
In Sorte Diaboli
In Sorte Diaboli

For my sins
I will ask no forgiveness
For my sins
They are not to forgive

So never speak of me quietly
Stand by my confession
I voice your rebellion
Against the traitor of the world

I am the first creature of this Kingdom
I will be the One
To out live His time
With the triumph of free will

Cool Dark Tranquillity--'Fiction'

Swedish melodic death metal band Dark Tranquillity released their latest album 'Fiction' in 2007. The band added to the growing list of murky themes in metal pervading the decade of uncertainty.

Inside the Particle Storm

Inside the particle storm
Where clouds of napalm shimmer
With the promise of one final dawn

Inside the particle bliss
Where ages collide into nothingness
Obliteration's one final kiss

A claw in the garden of eden
Clogging the bloodstream of Earth
Tearing a hole in the fabric of life
The horizon enriched with scars

Inside the particle blaze
A chamber of dissolution
Proclaiming the end of days

We leave now
Nothing will follow, nothing at all
The cleansing flames of entropy
To devour us all

Our lungs are filled with sarin
Our children drowning like dogs
Handcuffed to the weight of cold dark matter
Without purpose, meaning or name

[Solo]

Inside the particle storm
The poison gene of humanity
Nullified

This is the moment
When black ships anchor to the skies
The heavy hands of chaos
Descend in merciless demise

Nothing To No One

Force it to begin
Spark the flame
To fire-bursting sin
Doctrine denied
Over and over again

Keeping death of all things private
Expose this failed creation
What is done is dead
What is done is dead

To be content, an abomination
Are you satisfied
Are you done with this

The ultimate rebellion
The sacrifice is endless
The ultimate rebellion
Be nothing to no one

What's in a true life?
Behind the crumbling walls
Of dream and infant illusion
Action without movement
Desire without heart
It is over and done
It is over and done
To crave for touchless objects
And fathom without eyes
The fall of all things personal
That no one sees

The ultimate rebellion
The sacrifice is endless
The ultimate rebellion
Leave nothing to no one

Awaken to the screams
Of unresolved
Demands and accusations
Words are free

No, these are the outer symptoms
Of inner detonation
They will force us to inaction
Rid us of resolve
Take the burden off me
Lead me to my grave

The ultimate rebellion
The sacrifice is endless
The ultimate rebellion
Leave nothing to no one

Focus Shift

I think, I just forgot
To pick up the shells
From my recent discharge
And you took the blame
Explanations falter
To ears fallen deaf
Wherever I goI get lost

A reference to something
That both of us knew
Nothing that favors the few
In the darkness electric we see
That silence has spoken tonight

I think, I have lost my language
Whatever I've said, I deny
I think, I have lost my way
Whatever was missing is gone
I let my focus shift

Your face is a map
I fail to discover
Drowning the sounds
So lost in the order
It's the look that stayed my words
The unblinking knowledge
Interlocked and holding
No stalemate to break
Take hold of the flame that unites
In the silence that speaks to me now

I think, I have lost my language
Whatever I've said, I deny
I think, I have lost my way
Whatever was missing is gone
I let my focus shift

[Solo]

I struggle to find the words
That negate my meaning
I fail to comprehend
What message is given

[Solo]

I decline the steady hand
That leads to rejection
Tempted by the closure
With no sense of pride
Drown the fury and swallow the fire
Drown the fury, swallow the fire

I think, I have lost my language
Whatever I've said, I deny
I think, I have lost my way
Whatever was missing is gone
I let my focus shift

Cool The Scorpions--'Humanity: Hour I'

None other than German metal veterans The Scorpions threw their hat into the ring for apocalyptic concept albums. Their 2007 album 'Humanity: Hour I' depicted a world where humans and robots vie for dominance. The album was co-written by noted rock songwriter Desmond Child and futuristic writer Carl Liam. Could everyone's favorite Teutonic titans of metal who wanted to Rock You Like a Hurricane with a Lovedrive be taken seriously with a story about Orwellian themes of humanity facing extinction at the talons of cyborgs?

Truth be told, The Scorpions as a forward thinking band was not entirely out of the question. In the 70's, the band was both a prog-rock as well as a metal band during the era of Uli Jon Roth on guitar. But since that decade was long past and the band was more defined by uber-macho guitar slingers grabbing the hot babes on MTV in the 80's, it was almost a tough thing to swallow the band as having social commentary in the new millenium.

Hour I

So here we are
It's hour one
And it's a nightmare
There's nothing left
And yet it's good to be alive
There's no use crying
Cause the universe is not fair
The wicked and the innocent
Are fighting to survive

Child stay down, stay down
You better run for cover underground
Child stay down, stay down
You better shut your mouth
Don't make a sound

Human nature is the reason
For our downfall
And we deserve it playing God
With our machines
Our religions are a prison
That's our fatal flaw
Bombs are flying
While we're sleeping with the enemy

Child stay down, stay down
You better run for cover underground
Child stay down, stay down
You better shut your mouth
Don't make a sound

Look at me, right at me
When I'm telling you to stay down
Come to me, run to me
I am begging you to stay down
Cling to me desperately
All you gotta do is stay down
Pay attention my child down

Look at me, right at me
When I'm telling you to stay down
Come to me, run to me
I am begging you to stay down
Cling to me desperately
All you gotta do is stay down
Pay attention my child

Child, stay down, stay down
You better run for cover underground
Child stay down, stay down
You better shut your mouth
Don't make a sound

Child, stay down, stay down
You better run for cover underground
Child stay down, stay down
Stay down

Cool The Scorpions

The band knew there was no going back to the past. The future was here and they were not going back to an era that no longer existed. As frontman Klaus Meine said: "We wanted to make an album that was up to date, with a more modern sound to it without losing the Scorpion signature and I think it's still there. A lot of people feel it's a very good connection between the typical Scorpions sound but in a new way. It wasn't so much that we were trying to experiment; we still wanted a Scorpions record but not so much a classic rock album like going back to the old days, the 80's. We really wanted a record that would sound like 2007."

The Future Never Dies

Verse 1]
I'm lost in your eyes
Reaching out to cross the great divide
You are drifting away
Mind and soul and body day by day
Nothing's stopping you and I
It's do or die tonight

[Chorus]
So tell me why I'm alone
When we're lying here together
On a night that's so cold
And you're just a touch away
Baby try to hold on
Until we make it to forever
We're alive
And the future never dies

[Verse 2]
I've been dying inside
Holding back the tears I never cried
Now I'm down on my knees
Because everything you are is what I need
You're the meaning of it all
Don't let me fall you've got to

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
We've got to come together
Because everybody needs a heart to hold
Can't you see it's now or never
Because we've got nowhere else to go
Tell me why I'm alone
When we're lying here together

[Outro]
Baby try to hold on
Until we make it to forever
We're alive
And the future never dies
We're alive
And the future never dies
In your eyes
The future never dies

Cool The Scorpions

Interestingly, the lyrical direction was not the only thing that had changed about the band's new album. For the first time in years, the familiar band name logo, in the distinctive angular letters indicative of a metal band, was not used on the album cover. Was this a more dramatic touch? However, as one looks at the female robot, or gynoid on the cover, the band's traditional logo can be spotted vertically.

The guitars were also performed in various lower tunings drop D, drop C and drop C#. As Matthias Jabs explained: "Sometimes if you play the guitar riff dropped to a D, it will not only sound different but play different. But what ever was the best for the vocals is how we proceeded. It is no point in recording something if it is too stressful for the singer to sing properly".

Many of the songs the band recorded before putting them on the album seemed too "dark", so they were compelled to include more "up" songs such as "The Game Of Life" and "You're Lovin' Me To Death", in more typical Scorpions fashion. Times were dark, people felt, and dramatic statements were the order of the day, but fans seemed to clamor for what the band was always known for.

The Game Of Life

The time has come
For me to talk to you
And I don't mean
To hurt your pride
But everybody needs a friend sometimes
To make you see the light

In the game of life
The strong survive
We're on a one-way street
We gotta make it out alive
And never let 'em drag us down
In the game of life
We live and die
Another breath begins
Another chance to win the fight
From the moment that you hit the ground
In the game of life

You're born to hunt
And never run away
And then you're hunted
By the prey
The wounded deer
Leaps highest to the sun
Until his day is done

In the game of life
The strong survive
We're on a one-way street
We gotta make it out alive
And never let 'em drag us down
In the game of life
We live and die
Another breath begins
Another chance to win the fight
From the moment that you hit the ground

Here comes the morning
It's time to play
The game of life
The game of life

In the game of life
The strong survive
We're on a one-way street
We gotta make it out alive
And never let 'em drag us down
In the game of life
We live and die
Another breath begins
Another chance to win the fight
From the moment that you hit the ground
It's the game of life
The game of life

Humanity

Humanity
Auf wiedersehen
It's time to say goodbye
The party's over
As the laughter dies
An angel cries

Humanity
It's au revoir to your insanity
You sold your soul to feed your vanity
Your fantasies and lies

You're a drop in the rain
Just a number not a name
And you don't see it
You don't believe it
At the end of the day
You're a needle in the hay
You signed and sealed it
And now you gotta deal with it
Humanity
Humanity
Goodbye
Goodbye

Be on your way
Adios amigo there's a price to pay
For all the egotistic games you played
The world you made
Is gone

You're a drop in the rain
Just a number not a name
And you don't see it
You don't believe it
At the end of the day
You're a needle in the hay
You signed and sealed it
And now you gotta deal with it
Humanity
Humanity
Goodbye
Goodbye

Run and hide there's fire in the sky
Stay inside
The water's gonna rise and pull you under
In your eyes I'm staring at the end of time
Nothing can change us
No one can save us from ourselves

You're a drop in the rain
Just a number not a name
And you don't see it
You don't believe it
At the end of the day
You're a needle in the hay
You signed and sealed it
Now you gotta deal with it
Humanity

Cool Job For a Cowboy--'Genesis'

Newer metal bands also jumped onto the trend of recording concept albums. Arizona extreme death metal band Job For a Cowboy recorded their debut album 'Genesis' with an Orwellian, apocalyptic theme about the abuse and exploitation of technology. In this case, controversy ensued about the use of what was known as the Verichip, which was about to implanted into the skin of human subjects, or the general populace, to where the government could actively monitor and track the activities of citizens.

The band also tied into the fears and concerns that the Verichip was the much-rumored Mark Of the Beast in the Book Of Revelation in the Bible. The band disavowed having any allegiance or affiliation to religion, as they considered themselves atheists, but the views on modern, contemporary technology and alleged fulfillment of Scripture were worth investigating in the band's lyrics.

Embedded

An incision leads to the future of the new world -
a mark buried deep under the skin and flesh will define and distinguish man.
Signatures implanted on the hands and forehead.
Re-occurence of modern times and scriptures.
Testament to holy doctrines written in vital blood.

In the extent, all will hold something very similar and accordingly.
All will bear his name with the distinct and original number of his signature.
In a new world with suppressing technology.
Lacerations lead to codes embedded in blood streams beneath the flesh.
Currencies fuse together to form a solitary and overruling capital.

Money evolves into cryptic letters and numbers that flow through the net -
a conflagration set to diminish papered riches, depleting its masterdom.
No longer capable of enslaving the likes of human kind from only presenting itself as a form of an object.
Fragments of ash flow through the atmosphere's currents,
onlookers breathe and inhale what they once worshipped.
The demon's solution, a new world order.

Spreading his gospel among millions
Empires fused and bound together by the fingertips of their distinct leader
A flesh parade of a converted public altered from catechization
Manipulated and influenced into a sense of delusive calm
Consuming every word spoon fed directly into their beliefs
As a shepherd carrying his offerings between his arms
Garnished statements maintain and keep his people optimistic and confident
A throbbing army only grows from the misleading tongue of their new ruler
One army with new beliefs expanding through demonic designation
Ordered to butcher the existence of anything contrary
Almost as a reoccurrence of times past
As previous enemies of the forgoing lord have come and gone
All having the corresponding image of god through their own incoherent reflection

Cool Job For a Cowboy

Jiob For a Cowboy, while not having the most likely name for a metal band, did have a straight on fast, abrasive metal sound. The band's members included
Brent Riggs on bass, Elliott Sellers on drums, vocalist Jonny Davy, and Bobby Thompsonon guitar. Guitarist Ravi Bhadriraju would remain with the band until after the band recorded this album before leaving.

The band's earlier material was more in the deathcore genre, but 'Genesis' was a full death metal album. What was the difference? Deathcore had more of that angsty mall-punk sound (pretty much any "core" band did at this point) with death metal overtones. It was not strictly death metal. Purists of metal decried the "teen-scream" sound of such subgenres as metalcore and deathcore.

Bearing the Serpent's Lamb

This virgin churns on the back of her own indisposed and throbbing body.
Nauseated she chokes on her own vomit emitted from her distended and desiccated throat.
Weak and obscured this woman's body begins to convulse and twitch in her now soiled sheets with an abdomen beginning to flourish as her ribs now unhinge and shift.
Beneath the rib cage lay a sweltering child.
A child forcing and pushing outward for decampment of his mother's womb.

Bearing a bastard child.
Bearing what is now the son of the new world's lord.
Bearing the serpent's lamb.
Overwhelmed she grows debilitated and weak.
Staying attentive becomes more burdensome, a struggle to stay awake as her body starts to contract, she mutters one conclusive, crowning breath.
"Why would such a God allow such deep evil? Theodicy!"

The curtains are slowly lowered over her solitary and meaningless life.
Her chest lay open, a gaping wound revealing the damage left inside.
Her own body only used to mask the beast that dwelled internally.
This orphan child scowls over the remains of his birth given origin, his own mother - only to grow through his adolescence to clench the name of the Antichrist.

"Altered From Catechization"

The demon lord's son, now a ruler of only one nation,
spreading his gospel among millions.
Empires fused and bound together by the fingertips of their distinct leader,
a flesh parade of a converted public altered from catechization,
manipulated and influenced into a sense of delusive calm,
consuming every word spoon fed directly into their beliefs.

As a shepherd carrying his offerings between his arms,
garnished statements maintain and keep his people optimistic and confident.
[?] A lucrative piece of propaganda [?]
A throbbing army only grows from the misleading tongue of their new ruler.
[?]
One army with new beliefs expanding through demonic designation,
ordered to butcher the existence of anything remotely contrary,
almost as a re-occurrence of times past.
All previous enemies of the forgoing lord have come and gone,
having their own corresponding image of God through their own incoherent reflection.
