about

KRANG Chicago, Illinois

Beginning in 2009 as a group of friends from various other projects paying tribute to the crust and stenchcore pioneers of old, KRANG has evolved in members, sound, structure and technical prowess. Now incorporating elements of burning spirits style hardcore, d-beat, and the chug-heavy head-banging riffs of 80's thrash metal, KRANG has found their own distinct brand of fiery punk rock. Never Die! ... more

Track Name: That Ghost
Yearning; for a feeling a time or a place
A point when your mind was at peace
What's that pain that you stay in your eyes?

That Ghost - That you'll always chase
That Ghost - From which you're running away

Remember when you had such purpose
A martyred cause to fling yourselves at
Through periods of stagnation & loss
Sometimes we find it hard to look back

That Ghost - That you swore you'd never abandon
That Ghost - Who fought against all with suck reckless abandon

Building back up from ruins of depression
Reeling from friends lost & found
In our paths of regression; celebrated self abuse
Trying to derive from our throes
Some kind of lesson - Something of use

That Ghost - Though not one of grievance
Reluctantly accept what you've become
That Ghost - Can you feel it?
We'll meet it when we cease to run

Worn - Forlorn - And...
Blazed By The Sun
Track Name: Lost Road
I start to breathe in life - Like you take the air
Howling at apocalypse moons - Disregarding looming stares
Crashing into the collective you - We'll share our deepest fears

I feel it rising - A Bad Moon - Coming on
Eclipsed Sun - Dying - A Full Moon - Coming up

Sensing cataclysm soon - I wanna keep it secret; never utter beware
At altered static kneeled - our hearts taste like perpetual youth
We'll die 'young & fair - We'll taste the air

I feel it rising - A Bad Moon - Coming on
Eclipsed Sun - Dying - A Full Moon - Coming up

Not from Golden Spiral - Nor Golden Dawn
Instead finding 'the answer' coded in song

Holding hands at the end of the world
With a blood red Bad Moon risen
I just wanna watch it explode
Knowing that its what we've been working towards
I just wanna implode - I wanna be there as it goes
I want the sound to be.... All I know
Track Name: Mirror Puncher
The best part of staring into a mirror
And seeing all that you despise
Is you can smash it & change the picture
Rinse the facade, your coat of lies

Staring through your daily static from the sidelines crying
Apathy is no excuse for the stagnance in your life
Staring through your daily static from the sidelines crying
Apathy is no excuse for the stagnance in your mind

Do what you want with the bricks, taken from destruction's wall
Just remember how you stood there, laughing as you watched it fall
Laugh As You Watch Us Fall

Created in the image of what? Mirror Puncher
We'll castigate because we must. Smash Them All
Destruction in the name of nothing. Mirror Puncher
We'll burn it just to build something. Smash Them....All

The best part of staring at a broken mirror
And seeing shards of you you once despised
Is that you can rebuild the frame
And reconstruct; reconstruct these better lives

The best part of staring at a broken mirror
And seeing shards of you you once despised
Is that you can rebuild the frame
And reconstruct; reconstruct or paralyze....
Life.
Track Name: Replacer
Lured by sprawling, unseen worlds
I take the bait - It turns to shit
Smash through morning's ruby quartz
Illusions of impermanence

Louder voices scream through me
Shed this husk I want release

We seek to be unlike ourselves
Fuck our heads - Just to feel fixed
When open doors just feel like cells
The brightest futures - Turn to shit

Leave This Place x5

Crucified on my escape - I'll fucking hammer the nails myself

Crucified on my escape - I'll fucking hammer the fucking nails
Track Name: Fall of Dove
Innate bomb blast - Atoms charge within my mind
An escape from our own loathsome sway - Dead past, dead future
Walk away - Stumble into early graves

Fall of Dove - Nothing gold can stay
The first lies we told ourselves; of our lives we made a maze

Can't resuscitate the past - Blood boils behind my eyes
Smash through your ideas of more - Self Destruction our driving force
Some self-terminating course

Fall of Dove - Purity our constant prey
Demanding so much from life, that you ended up betrayed

Was your silver worth the weight?

Fall of Dove - And 'lo with death conquered
I'll have from this life... All that I can take
Track Name: Burn Now or Die Living
Life's trials trace the shape of one wide open eye
When towards the end, back together we blend - Drawn back to the sky
Origins confuse & elude our sight
With vague futures held over our heads, it's tears of blood we'll cry

All these shared, secret sorrows will fall as rain
Every hour, every birth every smile just serves to accumulate to pain

Somebody once told me that we define ourselves by what we love
What we love may define or deride us, we just may give ourselves up
Given to an altar of silence, some faltered sense of peace
Withdrawn & chained in waking sleep

Life's trials remind me of eyes shut tight from fear
We'll circle back on ourselves year after year
Out of Fear - Submit To Fear

Given to power - Give in to lack thereof
Maybe we just never knew... Never knew what 'us' was

So lets put out the eye of judgment, which cripples the everyday
Let's reclaim these better lives, before Death comes crawling...
For Debts To Be Paid

Without a trace, life has vanished from your eyes
Actualize some effort now or against ourselves, we'll race for lost time
Beyond the fragile geometry of time & space
Burn & steel yourselves now against vague futures before its too late
Track Name: Life Howls Back
Amoebic form, balled up beast
An aspiration realized as disbelief becomes the norm
Keep me 'o chaos precursor, my gateway to idyllic worlds

Unknown beings lack predestination
No disregard for repercussion
A creature born through peace & scorn
Oxymoronic self-crowned kings

Oh chaos incursion - Don't let my love fall short
Systematic depression - Let the moralistic abort

An idea at first which seems insane
Explodes repeating in my brain
I embrace it... And Swallow My Pain

In a world of blinding light and innumerable angles
We still see such rudimentary forms
Eyes swim with the lucid disappointments of our waking
We've dreamed effulgent moments, we're capable of so much more

Road weary, regret-less the same
On this path - Our dreams became actualized
This highway hypnosis ingrained in our lives

Standing upon Life's precipice
Gazing out at the abyss
Howling at that vast sea of black
Screaming for meaning

And Life. Howls Back
And Life. Howls Back
Track Name: No Arbiter
- There will be no peace in the valley in the shadow of your death. Though we ache for lack of you, your voice still whispers through every breathe -

Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Greater lies the weight of they who ignore their own.

No Arbiter - Vacant Throne

Will I walk through fields?
Or just barren plains
In these rotting pastures - The future is grey

Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Greater lies the weight of they who ignore their own.

Dead King - Burning Throne

Will I feel the glory?
Where once it was so plain
Or will these abstractions have spiraled my life into...
Some Sick Game

Threads Weave, Supporting no throne
No false pretense of greater good
No need for higher power, lets harvest our own
No need for higher power, lets harvest our own

Through black & white waters
Through bogs of distant grey
Boats full of ash - moored on far shores they wait
Onwards & upwards - we ascend into one big dark room
With a locked door... And one open window...
Leap - Fall - Or Fly
Burn Now... Or Die Living
Burn Now Or Die
