about

"[The] shifts in style and tone are done with an almost innate knowledge from its members in how to artfully establish a sonic manuscript from which the band can pull for inspiration. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise given the pedigree of its members, but Underling are in a very advantageous position as being a band that truly can do just about anything in the course of an album and get away with it. Bloodworship may have been a sleeper from 2015, but Underling have shown themselves worth more than to be compartmentalized as a mere side-project, but as a powerful creative force that can go anywhere from here." 4/5 - HeavyBlogIsHeavy

"Bloodworship more than lived up to expectations based on their cast of characters. Best of all, Underling sound remarkably little like any of the members’ other bands; they are entirely their own beast, a lumbering mammoth-like mix of death metal, black metal, post-hardcore and post-everything." - Metalsucks

"Bay Area sorta-supergroup containing members of Fallujah, Arkaik, Battlecross, and Sidian takes a leap from the death metal roots of its members and voyages into black metal territory. “Servant of Filth” puts a spin on the Americanized atmospheric black metal sound dominated by tremolo picking and blastbeats by offering a filthy propulsive bass groove that seems like the sort of thing Altar of Plagues would have built a song upon." - heavyblogisheavy

"This isn’t a band you listen to while on your phone or even driving in your car. The message this band is conveying is too vital and meaningful to have as background music with other mundane life activities. You need to listen to this band when each song can penetrate you deep to touch your soul, provoking you from within. And with multiple masterminds of bands such as Fallujah and Arkaik working together, you have a band that’s adept in their musical talent but have something to say to the world." - theageofmetal

"This is more aggressive and grinding than most bands one might have compared Underling to previously. Before this, the members of Underling weren’t standing out from the crowd, either in this project of their others. Now they’re making more noteworthy music." - InvisibleOranges

This is Underling's first debut full length. The goal we wanted to achieve is that the listener will not just listen to this album - but FEEL it...and the vast amount of emotion we put into each song. These are songs written based on life experience and are completely genuine in nature.

Track Name: Blackout
Blackout the day
Grimace the night
Crushed by decay...
I will blackout this sky

Shackled -- Cruel
Four Walls staring --
Constant; their screaming

Drowning in mother's tears of disappointment
Abandoned by fathers who never wanted the part
I have felt the pangs of isolation,
Lying down in my grave
I blacked out to wait for the end of my life.
I blacked out to wait for the end of my life...

You...purged me with your closing eyes --
Like the oceans, streaming down, down, down
Drowning me in tidal waves,
They reminded me of that familiar isolation I felt
During the worst, during the worst of my Blackout days
It reminded me of the familiar desperation I felt
During the worst of my Blackout days

My lungs are fucking filled,
I'm Breathing Deep for relief
Let me out, Lift me out, Let me out of this grave

Blackout the day,
Bury the night
Black out the wish for and end to this life
Blackout the day
Bury the night
Blackout...
Track Name: Servant of Filth
SERVANT OF FILTH

Poison springing forth – sprung like a whore
So sink into the womb of destruction
Let the blood of your sins flow faster than before
I saw your temples were drowning
I watched your temples crash down
All the world’s beneath the filth and the rats

You fool yourself, and your “new future”
I hope for you this façade – a fucking lifetime’s worth
A life principle of cowardice, regret, and sorrow for the rest…
A life principle of cowardice, regret, and sorrow for the rest of your days

Close your eyes…
And let your life drift away
So sink into the womb of destruction
Let the blood of your sins flow faster than before…
Close your eyes, and let your life drift away – drift away

Close your eyes,
And let your life drift away...
Track Name: Downpour
DOWNPOUR

Breach the walls of illusion you keep so dear
Feel the drip of your fear as it flees…
A downpour of pain escaping your body
You drained the mistakes to forget your life was never worth living
Drain the mistakes, your life was never worth living

You never had a place to call home…
Thighs opened wide – desperate for love
Dripping with sin -- you are the flesh pouring in
Dripping with sin -- you are the flesh pouring in

Desperation is all you’ll ever know…
I am the companion consuming you flesh and bone

Conscious and falling…
The concrete draws close,
These arms spread wide
-- vast, like the sea…
The welcoming –
Your crowd steps aside,
And watches a life of decay die today

I am the downpour of everything you loved
For at this final moment, remember all your pain…
-- Let it burden you no more

I am the downpour of your filthiest lies
I am the downpour of your selfish fucking pride
I am the downpour of your all that you despise
I am the downpour…
Track Name: The Seventh Wall
THE SEVENTH WALL
Pull me away towards eternity
Lower the walls, open the gates
Currents run deep, I’m drowning
This heart was once true
It falls in the haze
Lower the walls…

I have carved and I’ve clawed through starlight and the haze
Beneath the beauty lies denial hid in his grave
Our walls segregate our blindness from our hate
I touched your hand and left you -- death's sycophant slave

The eternal winter scars sorrow over landscapes
Chilled to the bone, I have drowned in these lakes
Lower the walls to eternity
Lower these walls, open the gates

Pull me away towards eternity
Lower the walls, open the gates
Your currents ran deep – I am drowning, drowning
I’ve fallen down seven times, but am standing up an eighth
I’ll wait to know truth, just to call it by name…
I lower these walls, then open the gates

Pull me away to eternity…
Currents run deep,
Striving, my heart strives for life
Lower the walls – lower the walls
Lower your walls – lower the walls

"Save the pain I leave behind...I lived a life full of love. I smile now, and say goodbye. I'm right there by your side. Don't be sad, I am now free to be." The pain is over. Rest knowing we all still love you and that you'll always be with us. Love and miss you man...
Track Name: Clawing At The Rot
CLAWING AT THE ROT
I embrace the fall -- descend with elation
A virtuous heart
Now darkened by foreshadowed fate
I was caught by the arms that had pushed me away
-- towards the edge of the world
I stood wishing for strength
To turn back and face my mistakes
Three times now fate has failed to grant me my wish,
My wish for death

Accepted, adorned
Rejected, Reborn
This coronation of thorns –
I will reign hope over you all

So hold close your dearest
For god was never there to hear us
Scribing and scratching at walls --
While detaching from truth and reality
Though I am haunted day after day
I became king, reigning over mistakes
Clawing through rays of sunlight
Staring back - the ash and bitter cold
Is the winter of life’s welcomed chill
-- seduced by the whisper of death,
And this breath-taking ill?

Accepted, Adorned
Rejected, Reborn
This coronation of thorns –
I will watch your hope all slip away

Through death, I have found life…
I could not bear to ask for more
For when you’ve lost everything –
You see trophy in these lungs;
You breathe…
Hell-bound once, I now accept my addiction
And I feel so alive
Until you’ve heard the whisper of death,
Life seems so fucking meaningless

Accepted, Adorned
Rejected, Reborn
This coronation of thorns –
I will reign hope over you all
Track Name: Adore
ADORE

A grave so cold -- a coronation of thorns
Accepted, adorned -- a coronation of thorns
I’m accepted, reborn unto a destitute throne
Let me reign hope, let me reign hope on you all

Rejected, reborn unto a destitute throne;
Let me reign hope, let me reign hope on you all
I hope you will never feel vacant inside
I hope you will never accept your death
In a grave so cold -- a coronation of thorns
Accepted, adorned -- a coronation of thorns
I was accepted, reborn unto a destitute throne
Let me reign hope on you all
Track Name: Stay
STAY

Take away your pride and bare –
See truly what I am…
Rained in upon this holiday,
On the eve of such a distraction…
As marked as these wounds are in blood,
As shattered lives litter the streets,
I’d cut open my eyes to see --
My own last fucking days of faded glory

How troubled, riddled, sickle we are…
So unable to restrain
My counterculture has won,
The numbness nevermore will stay away

Just learn from my mistakes…
Please learn from my mistakes.
I would usher in the pain,
The numbness nevermore will stay, will stay away
I’d open up my veins
And overflow with hate
I usher in the pain,
And open up my veins

The numbness nevermore will stay, will stay away
As marked as these wounds are in blood,
As shattered lives litter the streets – I run,
I cut open my eyes to see
My own last fucking days of faded glory
Track Name: Becoming The Faintest Light
Make this song yours and let it be yours.
