about

You stand before a stage illuminated with mysterious green light. A painted backdrop depicting gnarled and thorny trees dominates the center. Scavenged wooden fencing, hammered together with rusty nails into jagged arrangements, stands on either side. Rotting wood and filthy rags are scattered across the floor. You hear a distant horn, and turn to see a parade of shadowy figures and monstrous beasts marching out of the darkness toward the stage. No guitars, just words, lurching bass lines, and the thunder of drums. This is Evil Sword.

Their latest album, An Eerie Fire Eats the Brain, is the culmination of four years of experimentation by multimedia artist partners Kate Ferencz and Ben Furgal aided by a rotating cast of musicians, performers, and acolytes to their movement.

Track Name: Waiting
Cold
Dark
Under your feet
I wasn’t dead, I was patiently waiting
Patiently waiting and I could feel everything
I could hear everything
I wasn’t dead

Far
Down
Deep in the earth
I wasn’t dead, I was quietly listening
Quietly listening and I could hear everything
I could hear everything
I wasn’t dead

Turned into stone
Thrown in the ocean
Crumbled to dust
Cast to the wind
Tempered with fire
The transformative forge
The guts of the earth will be metal again

Down
Down
Thousands of years
I wasn’t dead, I was only forgotten
Only forgotten for nearly forever and I could feel everything
I wasn’t dead

Cold
Still
Practically motionless
I wasn’t dead, I was resting my eye sockets
Shut for the ages but one day they’ll open
and open or closed I can always see everything

Turned into stone
Thrown in the ocean
Crumbled to dust
Cast to the wind
Tempered with fire
The transformative forge
The guts of the earth will be metal again

I wasn’t
I wasn’t
I wasn’t
I wasn’t
Track Name: Eating
I ate your heart
I ate your hair
I ate your nose
I ate your hands
I ate your feet
I ate your fingers and your face
I ate your guts
I ate your bones
And even though I was hungry it tasted foul

And your skull
I ate your brain
I ate your eyes
I ate your arms
I ate your armpits
I ate your fat
I ate your blood
I ate your muscles
I ate your back
And even though it was foul I was satiated

Ribs
I ate your hips
I ate your liver and your lungs
I ate your gums
I ate your tongue
I ate your ears
I ate your elbows
I ate your neck
And even though I am a ravenous beast I was grateful
And because I was grateful I said a prayer

And your skin
Your fingernails
I ate your stomach and your chest
I ate your eyelids
I ate your mouth
I ate your teeth
I ate your knuckles
I ate your legs
And even though I said a prayer it didn’t make it right
And even though it didn’t make it right I shuddered with delight
I needed it so bad there was nothing else to do
And even though you were already dead I killed you
Track Name: The Eyes
Spikes
Spikes of light
Spikes of light tonight that pierce the sky
The ice
Icy bright
Icy bright tonight nocturnal knives
The think
Thinking blink
Thinking blinking bright
The eyes the eyes
The thinking and unblinking eyes
That watch you over through the night

Glow
Glowing
Glowing glimmering the silver moon
It shows
Shimmering
She is shivering and smiling shining bright
Shows its glow
Shows its glow tonight so you will know
What’s right tonight
So bright the light
The night the right
The way to go

Lightning will strike you
The stars know where you are
The lights you see at night
The eyes are spies and shining for the dark

Is it wrong to unearth the dead, mother?
They say that, but there are some poor creatures that never should have been buried at all?
How can you tell if a thing is alive or dead?
I don’t think there is a way to tell, at least not in this world

Ha
Ha
Ha

Lightning will strike you
The stars know where you are
The lights you see at night
The eyes are spies and shining for the dark

Blindness
Blindness
Blindness
Blindness
Track Name: Worm
Worm little worm
Worm little worm
I have always admired the work that you do
Changing what’s dead into something that’s living again
So the world stays vibrant and new
Worm little worm
Worm little worm
My hook through your body I pierced it through
Threw in the water to feed to the fish that I fed to my family
Swallow and chew

Swallow and chew
Swallow and chew
Swallow and chew into something that’s new

Worm little worm
Worm little worm
I have always considered that you were a friend
Till today I’m afraid I behaved unforgivably
Forcing our friendship to come to and end
Worm was it right
Worm was it wrong
I wanted my children to grow big and strong
Someday you’ll know
Someday you’ll see
When I’m dead and the worm folk will all come to get me
Track Name: Coward
Unimaginable
The unspeakable
The unknowable
The unnamed
Show yourself coward
Show me whatever it is
Tell me why you were never the same

The intangible
The forgotten on purpose
The failure to extract the thought from the brain
Show yourself coward
Show me the face that you hide in the dark inarticulate shame
Track Name: The Time
Let us take the time to contemplate the seasons
The world is old
The year is long
May the seasons always come after each other in their order
In the way it’s always happened all along

Season of cold
A time of hiding in the holes
Season of sleep
Season of death
And then the season of awakening
We rise up from the mud
Open our eyes to see what little life is left
Season of sun
A time of growth
Another world grows out of the broken wreckage of the old one
Season of gold
A time of laughter
Time to harvest all of the laughter out of the children
Out of their faces till they can’t laugh
Until they can’t laugh
Until they can’t laugh

Let us take the time to contemplate the seasons
The world is old
The year is long
May the seasons always come after each other in their order
In the way it’s always happened all along

Season of cold
A time of waiting for the end
Season of sleep
Season of death
It is the season of forgetfulness to wander in the dark so long
That many of us never make it back again
Season of light
A time of squinting in the darkness
Till our eyes adjust and face the blazing fire’s height
Season of gold
A time of laughter
Time to harvest all of the voices out of the songs the children sing
Until they can’t say anything
Until they can’t laugh

And on and on and on and on and on
Track Name: The Claws
Don’t go into the woods by yourself at night
There is something that stirs in the angry air
The invisible claws will reach out for you
They will tear at your clothes and pull your hair

Look at the trees
They are dancing the dance that will bring down the world

Don’t go into the woods by yourself at night
It’s the howling wind that awaits you there
The invisible eyes that will cut right through
To the parts on the inside, exposed and bare

Something’s glistening
Rising and falling
The life in your body
The sun in the sky
Tumbles down, it’s igniting the fire
And then off in the distance a new light is about to be born

Gathering its power
Closer every hour
bounding towards the world of men to trample and devour
Come to shake this town
Houses upside down
Bash and crash and thrash and smash it
Back into the ground
What makes your skin crawl
Scares you most of all
No one should have had to tell you not to answer when you hear it’s call

The invisible claws will reach out for you
The invisible claws will reach out for you
The invisible claws will reach out for
Track Name: The End
Walk onward onward onward
With no mind mind mind
The drudgery of mind is left behind, left behind
Walk onward onward onward
With no brain brain brain
We knocked it on the ground and won’t look back, not again

Look forward forward forward
With no one true face
A thousand little faces
All will grow in its place
The miracle we’ve dreamed of
It’s begun, It’s begun
Our thousand little faces all move forward as one
