activa44 Deviated Instinct at their filthiest.
To me, the definition and very essence of stench and crust.

Along with North of Nowhere, it's the record that made me discover stenchcore and crust as a whole. 17-years-old metalhead me couldn't believe it when he found out that (true) punk IS actually as angry and anti-establishment as he thought it should be, instead of that no-sense happy-sounding pop crap that he thought it was!

I can't thank D.I. and IoS enough for giving my reject soul a home! Favorite track: Listen To The Sirens.

Televiper Deviated Instinct’s finest hour, takes their songwriting beyond their crust punk roots: reminds of early Celtic Frost but even more raw and unrestrained. Favorite track: Slow Death Suck.

Open Wound 05:51
Like an open wound I'm drowning in salt Hanging in the raw Twist it no more You got me stumbling You got me crumbling Slashed Gashed Bruised Contused and Confused Licked your lips on a skewer You won't let it heal And like an open wound I'm drowning in salt Leave me bare For all to gnaw Pick it clean.... HANGING RAW
Gluttonised Offal Corrosive lobotomy Yet always I sit dehumanised You're laughing at me Vacuous numbskull Hysterical in my soulless bliss Dragging me down Eyes wide in the mire Colours in the abyss Each one go grey to black WAITING FOR THE MINDFUCK Waiting for the mindfuck I feel it repeat I would have felt it before If I'd have known I was there WAITING FOR THE MINDFUCK Plucking raw nerves At my own command I silently watch Squeeze the tumour in
Void 04:36
Sometimes I wonder What goes on in your head? Sometimes I wonder What's it like on the inside? And where does it lead? To chase your own tail? There's sand in your eyes Dig deeper And choke on it fucker Sometimes I wonder What goes on in your head? Here's an oven To stick it in And sometimes I wonder What's it like To have it all and nothing
