TRACK PREMIERE: Pristina's "The Motherfucker"

Apparently 2012 was a pretty shitty year for Pristina vocalist/bassist Brendan K Duff, which would be pretty apparent even if it wasn’t in the press materials – you don’t name your album Hopeless•Godless when you’re pleased with life’s plentiful bounty. It’s not like his band was ever chipper, but their second album takes a particularly grim view of existence, as only metallic hardcore can. Still, his pain is our gain. Hopeless feels like 35 minutes of a guy pounding your face into the dirt while crying. Not particularly appealing to outsiders, but we all know why we listen to this stuff. “The Motherfucker” leads off this litany of bruises, and Decibel is pleased to ruin your day with a premiere of that track. “Enjoy.”

Here are the song’s lyrics. Sing along!

"My fucking life collapsing on me. The damage is done. New lows. The spiral continues down. Godforsaken depths. Tonight I destroy myself. Tonight I taste her shadow. Tonight I descend; and fade away to nothing. The needle finds the vein. The demon knows the way home (to me). Soul less. All things must end so must I. A requiem to the bastard. Forget I was ever here. There is no hope. There is nothing. There is no hope. None for me. Just let me go."

*** Hopeless•Godless comes out digitally on February 26, courtesy of The Path Less Traveled Records. Get it here.
