Andrew Pitt This is nasty nasty nasty grimy filthy disgusting sludge metal/noise rock. It's like Melvins, Unsane and Crowbar all had a depressed three-way baby that smoked angel dust with Chat Pile before losing its job at the coal mine. Tremendously heavy production, affecting lyrics and a penchant for taking songs into the realm of post-punk to cool things down before beating the listener to death with a bent piece of rebar. Favorite track: Crucifix.

kenneth whyte Noisy and fun album but the winner is Lake Song. Like Shellac remaking Slint's Good Morning Captain, including a trumpet player. Favorite track: Lake Song.
Noise Water Meat

Hate coming down In my hand Open yr wound Answers bleed true Hate myself for yr amusement Owe yr time To yr pain The thorn in yr side Reveals yr truth A calm release An empty feeling We all store Deep inside As it takes control
2.
Bang 02:39
Time takes hold What you sow I want yr truth Power, greed, lies Everything inside No holds barred What you start
3.
Another day has passed and yet I feel the same Tipping the hourglass and count every grain you see Send it all to the world and hope they reach the void Drinking to waste my time, man, I feel annoyed The place where I reside is starting to grow dull Another argument lost, wasting our time to breathe Tell me how do you repair this anxiety? Another coffee, another beer, another thing to waste my time I'm not alone with you and I, man, I feel alive Take what you want from me It's all that I can give I will not feel the same I will not feel this shame
4.
Definitions 05:34
How do I describe my anger to you A simple word won't do How do we explain the depression we hold Not every day is gold I breathe it out and in All my trust, all within it hurts And I promise you I won't push it around As you fall It's so simple To leave it out in the cold But I won't But I won't this time It's so simple To drown it out in the rain Make you feel Make you feel my pain
5.
End Scenes 05:10
Ask to cease and desist To destroy my name Tell me what's it like to pretend you are God Give it a shot, give it yr best Lay it down on the ground Cause I'd like to rest my head for a while It's all fun and games Till you destroy yr life Tell me what's it like to know you are God Was it worth, what's it worth Was it worth the pain? All yr hope, all yr dreams Everything that you said I never asked for it I only wanted to change Here we are In our own paradise Yet you love to draw lines in the snd Was it worth, what's it worth Was it worth the mess? Cause I'd like to rest my head for a while

Richard 03:06
Who said they hurt you? Was it yr pride or ego? I couldn't tell, man So easily triggered By the power of a woman I can see it in yr face I've got it made, man Gonna hunt you down By the power invested in me yr through You sonofa bitch I'll make it through Well it's so damn easy To point you out in a crowd Like a finger on yr back What makes a man a coward? Is it his pride or wealth? Well, I don't fucking know You made it easy With everything that you said And where you stand I've got it made, man Gonna hunt you down

Crucifix 04:26
He walks the streets alone at night In a town that he once knew Stare at the wall long enough to think about All the change he's been through They build the monuments to themselves It's an ideal of capitalism They move in the rich and drive out the poor Like the skeeving rats that they are I've seen them, man They don't know how they'll die He doesn't know what to think With all the change he's been through Tore down his home and they erected a condo Devoid of everything good in life He draws a bath He makes it warm He draws a blade from memory and scorn And draws a crucifix down his arm At least he knows how he'll die
8.
Blackened 03:18
Take it down to a place Where we hide from our disgrace I don't know how to say Everything is not okay Bury yr heart deep inside The day is long as we swallow our pride We all know how to say Everything is not okay I don' want to choose Everything that I know Can it be what you want Holds me while you chew Take it down to yr place Where we all serve from yr face We all know how to say Everything is not okay I don't want to choose Everything that you have to do Fuck everything that you want It doesn't much to me Hate Fear Self Doubt

Lake Song 09:37
There's a light on the hill A beacon through the fog It's guiding him home She stands alone Across an empty shoreline Praying to the waves Inside their home The fire grows dim It's an ember that clings on And the scurry of cats Can be heard in the distance Reminds her... Reminds... Take my body home He stands at the stern of the ship His mast is torn And the winds have died down He casts his net And hopes for return Bring it home He watches the stars As they shift and fade Hovering through the night He holds on to a thought That keeps him going Bring him back home

about

Exhalants began in 2017 sprouting from their local DIY and club scenes with one goal in mind; be loud as fuck.The three-piece quickly cut a demo, played some shows around town, and then set out to record their first full length not long after that. That first LP yielded a strong collection of songs that balanced the moody experimentation of indie heroes like Unwound and the harsh distortion and feedback-drenched noise rock of Unsane, coupled with raw emotion on display. The record received a good amount of acclaim, which helped Exhalants get their name out more and tour throughout the U.S. During this time they also recorded a split 7” with fellow Texas trio Pinko (Hex Records) to have while both bands were out on tour together.
Immediately following the release of their first record, Exhalants started working on new material. They spent most of 2019 writing and touring, fleshing out newer material on the road while still promoting their 2018 self-titled debut.
Exhalants hail from Austin, Texas. The members all have roots with playing in multiple bands around the area and have been employed by various venues in town, so they are no strangers to the community aspect and DIY nature of playing the sort of decidedly non-mainstream music they do. With a mountain of amps, precision pounding drums, eardrum-rattling feedback, and a healthy dose of experimentation Exhalants are easily one of the more exciting newer bands to gain attention within the punk/noise rock arena in recent memory. “Atonement” aims to push that sound further for anyone willing to listen.
