about

Primed For Destruction is the culmination of multiple years of songwriting done by four teenagers with a dream to rock the world (or at least the greater Pittsburgh area). Klaymore began writing this album back in 2008, and recorded two demo EP's of it over the two years following that. This is the last and most recent recording done by Klaymore's original line up, done over the summer of 2011. The album is meant to have a more raw sound and not overly produced like most music that is heard nowadays, and most of the songs never actually have more instruments or voices going than there are members of the band to actually perform them. Primed For Destruction is twelve cuts of heavy metal with an old school vibe. Its tracks are laden with rage, angst, and twin guitar fury (what more would you expect from a group of metal loving sixteen year olds?) The album marks both the beginning and the end of an era of Klaymore, but a bright future is not completely "Out of Reach" for the band and its current lineup.

Track Name: Out of Reach
Fear sets in silently,
Comes into your eyes,
Feel it breathing down your neck,
Shouldn't be surprised.

Sitting like a loaded gun,
Staring into space,
Just barely turn the corner with an expressionless face.

You're Out of Reach,
I'm incomplete,
Won't you come down,
And bury me.

Finish me off,
While I can breathe,
You do your worst,
So subtly.

Deep sepiatic stare cuts through me easily,
You'll never take me in, but I need you desperately,
Your dark allure attracting every part of me,
But now I'm glued in place just like I want us to be.

You're Out of Reach,
I'm incomplete,
Won't you come down,
And bury me.

Finish me off,
Before I die,
And take me with you,
Into the sky.

*Interlude

You're Out of Reach,
I'm incomplete,
Won't you come down,
And bury me.

Finish me off,
While I can breathe,
You do your worst,
So subtly.

You're Out of Reach,
I'm incomplete,
Won't you come down,
And bury me.

Finish me off,
Before I die,
And take me with you,
Into the sky.
Track Name: Serpent
Bursting through the scenery,
Shifting from the light,
Pounding through the foliage,
Slithering out of sight,

There's venom dripping from your fangs,
Looking for a fight,
Gaze piercing like laser beams,
Terror of the night.

Sneaking from behind now,
In the darkness it entails,
Binds you up now you're restrained,
In its wretched scales.

Serpent, coiled in the corner,
Serpent, readying its bite,
Serpent, hidden in the shadows,
Serpent, leaping as it strikes.

Underneath and out of sight,
Silently it crawls,
Leering from the undergrowth,
Of the rot infested walls,

Defiling as it passes by,
Downward as it falls,
Vile, poisoned, monstrous breath,
Hissing as it calls.

Sneaking from behind now,
In the darkness it entails,
Binds you up now you're restrained,
In its wretched scales.

Serpent, coiled in the corner,
Serpent, readying its bite,
Serpent, hidden in the shadows,
Serpent, will taste your flesh tonight.

*Interlude*

Track Name: Into the Depths
I can't break the surface tension, cuz you're not that interesting,
And I doubt what you tell me, really means a thing,
Mind-bending succubus, is this all that you do,
Drag me into the water but I don't wanna drown with you.

You're a thing out of the night,
When you turn out your light.

Bitch, you feel like sandpaper, up against my skin,
I wish I could just stop before it all begins,
There is no satisfaction from anything you do,
It's easy to contain myself when I'm staring up at you.

Hold my breath and dive,
Just a waste of time.

When your light is on,
And I act like nothing's wrong,
There's frustration in my eyes,
That you fail to recognize,

Counter attack,
With all that I've held back,
I know, that one wrong step,
Can lead me back down, Into the Depths.

Trail of monotony leads down to your dark home,
But I always follow you so I'm not left alone,
You take and rarely give, and then you have to run,
You try to kick me out after you've had your fun.

Hold my breath and dive,
Just a waste of time.

Cuz when your light is on,
And I act like nothing's wrong,
There's frustration in my eyes,
That you fail to recognize,

Counter attack,
With all that I've held back,
I know, that one wrong step,
Can lead me back down, Into the Depths.

Your webbed wings steal me away, while the day is young,
That crooked smile you give me only hides your forked tongue,
I feel so trapped inside when you grab me by the hand,
I try to explain myself, but you never understand.

Hold my breath and dive,
Just a waste of life.

Cuz when your light is on,
And I act like nothing's wrong,
There's frustration in my eyes,
That you fail to recognize,

Counter attack,
With all that I've held back,
I know, that one wrong step,
Can lead me back down, Into the Depths.
Track Name: Parasite
Stalking through the alleyways,
Creeping through the streets,
Waiting out there on the corner so she's never out of reach.

Gathering attention,
And throws it on the floor,
No matter what I give her she's always back for more.

The door is open, I'd rather see you walking in,
Before it's too late and she burrows under my skin.

Well she clings like a Parasite,
And I'll never let her die,
I'm what's keeping her alive,

And when you look into her eyes,
You know you'll see your own demise,
She's just waiting for the night.

Burning through the underground,
I can't abandon my skies,
I do my best to hide it when I look into her eyes.

Shadow looming overhead,
I wish that it would land,
When her claws go sinking in me it's more than I can stand.

I feel like I've lost you like a feather in the wind,
But now it's too late cuz she's burrowed under my skin.

Well she clings like a Parasite,
And I'll never let her die,
I'm what's keeping her alive,

And when you look into her eyes,
You know she'll only tell you lies,
She's just waiting for the night.

*Interlude*

Well she clings like a Parasite,
And I'll never let her die,
I'm what's keeping her alive,

And when you look into her eyes,
You know she'll only tell you lies,
She's just waiting for the night.

Well she clings like a Parasite,
And I finally let her die,
I'm not keeping her alive,

And when you look into her eyes,
You know you'll see your own demise
She's just waiting for the night.
Track Name: Nightfall (Dusk/Dawn Intro and Outro)
When all will fade to black,
And the lights are out,
Your breath escapes you,
As you try to shout.

Corners closing in,
But now there's not much time,
Your fear subsides within,
So say a prayer tonight.

Oh, I await the day when your life slips away,
And when the nightfall comes, your soul is here to stay.

You're on the in between,
Of life and death,
Nothing can be seen,
And there is nothing left.

Everything you've built up,
He can take it all,
It hits you like a hammer,
When the night falls.

Oh, I await the day when your life slips away,
And when the nightfall comes, your soul is here to stay.

Now close your eyes,
And open your mind,
Think hard on your past life,
And let the future unwind.

Dream of tomorrow,
And not of today,
As you await your judgement,
And the break of day.

Oh, I await the day when your life slips away,
And when the nightfall comes, your soul is here to stay.

Oh, I await the day when your life slips away,
And when the nightfall comes, your soul is here to stay.
Track Name: Dragged Under
Dragged from the light,
To this infernal night,
I tried to back out,
But you put up a fight.

Your taunting stranglehold,
Had lightened up on me,
I thought that you had changed your mind,
But you just didn't want them to see.

The way you drag me under,
Pull me down,
I should have known you weren't messing around,

Cuz it's nothing less,
Nothing more,
I should have seen it when I crawled to the shore.

Treatment was a nightmare,
Completely turned around,
But you had the answers,
That I needed found.

What's the point in giving,
If you don't get it back,
I tried to back out,
But came under attack.

Was it the you drag me under,
Pull me down,
I should have known you weren't messing around,

Cuz it's nothing less,
Nothing more,
I should have seen it when I crawled to the shore.

Abandoned by our holy father,
Drag me down, into the water.

I'm interlocked with hatred,
I wish it could be you,
I know that I could change things,
But you don't want me to.

My skies are brown,
But my earth is blue,
I wish that I could grow wings,
And get there up to you.

How could you let her drag me under,
Pull me down,
I should have known you weren't messing around,

Cuz it's nothing less,
Nothing more,
I should have seen it when I crawled to the shore.

Crawl to the shore.
Track Name: Talons
On wings of steel it takes to the sky,
The air raid siren blasts its battle cry,
Gripping up civilians with hooks of lead,
Takes them to the sky to meet with their death.

As they dig deeper your world starts to slip,
Piercing your skin with the tightening grip, of the Talons.

Widening its wings it slowly goes higher,
Scorching the earth with nuclear fire,
Fear rises in you as it blacks out the sun,
Instinct kicks in as you start to run.

As they dig deeper your world starts to slip,
Piercing your skin with the tightening grip, of the Talons.

Its blood curdling screams will eat at your brain,
Leaving you mangled and never the same,
Planted in its jaws it has you locked in,
She'll rip you asunder with her talons.

As they dig deeper your world starts to slip,
They'll stab through your brain as your skull starts to chip.
Track Name: Brace For Impact
Riding cross the night sky, rise up through the air,
It better not go off, before you're even near,
If you drop that payload, when conditions aren't right,
The outcome will be failure, but it happens all the time.

Your knees are locked,
No turning back,
Just close your eyes,
And Brace For Impact.

Brace For Impact,
Brace For Impact,
Brace For Impact.

Sent into a tailspin, gasping out for air,
Smoke debris and aftermath, caught up in your hair,
Just one slip of the finger, and it goes without a fight,
The mission's over early, cuz the engine's spent tonight.

You're going down,
Air sprayed with flak,
Head between the knees,
And Brace For Impact.

Brace For Impact,
Brace For Impact,
Brace For Impact.

*Interlude*


Brace For Impact,
Brace For Impact,
Brace For Impact.
Track Name: Torn From Reality
I try to tell you lately what's been on my mind,
There's one thing that helps describe all of the thoughts I find,
We're both on different wavelengths and there's no way to change,
I can't accept it and I can't just turn the page.

When the Earth is dull and dim,
Burn the bridge and try to swim,

Let yourself be Torn From Reality,
Don't try to lock me down and steal my life from me,
Torn From Reality,
I don't know how you do it but it's not the life I wanna lead.

Dark wings, a soft caress, I want them to take my hands,
We know we cannot fly, we all were born to stand,
I wanna break through, but your world is so protected,
I can only fly off the handle and get astrally projected.

When you feel like breaking down,
Grab your friends and try to drown.

Let yourself be Torn From Reality,
Don't try to lock me down and steal my life from me,
Torn From Reality,
I don't know how you do it but it's not the life I wanna lead.

*Bass Solo*

*Interlude*

When you feel like breaking down,
Grab your friends and try to drown.

Let yourself be Torn From Reality,
Don't try to lock me down and steal my life from me,
Torn From Reality,
I don't know how you do it but it's not the life I wanna lead.
Track Name: Ancient Calling
In a pit of fire, the anger is unsheathed,
Untamed, unchained, unbroken, and unleashed,
Heavy metal lady, underhanded priest,
The scorpion's set loose gnashing its teeth.

Overwhelming statues, one hidden in the trees,
The other in your face, down on your knees,
Charging into battle, with a falcon scream,
We're riding on its wings to victory.

Poisoning swept from their minds,
Things of ancient times,
Naturally, makes me feel blind,
The calling of ancient times.

*Interlude*

Poisoning swept from their minds,
Things of ancient times,
Naturally, makes me feel blind,
The calling of ancient times.

First shots are taken, it's time to handle things,
I mindlessly attack the glowing rings,
Tantalizing ice queen, I'm trapped within her gaze,
Seeming so close yet so far away.
Track Name: Death Grip
Shake down, a beating, we're coming through the mist,
You're gonna have a breakdown, from feeling, the impact it enlists,
Like lightning, the striking, will fuse you to the ground,
Give you a brain shake, no mistake, you will be taken down.

Souls rest in peace as we call for the priest,
Leave them where they lay,
Fold your hands and pray,
Or you'll be caught in its Death Grip.

Thousands aligning, their fists pound in the air,
Shapeless gargantuan, with bleeding eyes it stares,
Set loose on the cloister, it sends screams down the halls,
Rending the infidel, and throws them to the walls.

None are released from the eyes of the beast,
As their minds decay,
Bow your heads and pray,
Or you'll be caught in its Death Grip.

Smiting its foes with a force unmistaken,
It feeds off the souls from the lives it has taken,
Tightening its grip it goes through them like fodder,
Licking its lips it continues the slaughter.

Beat down, razorblade, lashes through the air,
Curb stomped, skulls crushed, tendons rip and tear,
Like nails scratching at you, it grabs you by the throat,
Eviscerates, the air ways, as you start to choke.
Track Name: Primed For Destruction
Just an ordinary night,
Shut the door and hit the lights,
The cogs are turning,
So keep yourself out of sight.

Dark reaper of my soul,
Comes to devour whole,
What I've created,
As the wheels begin to roll.

Only wish that I could stay,
Come to take me away,
The door comes closer,
As they feed me to the flames.

We're Primed For Destruction,
Of your heaven and earth,
No final distractions,
So bring the fire forth.

Your emptiness,
Has locked me in,
We're Primed For Destruction,
So let the torture begin.

Killing moments all the time,
Spitting razors on my mind,
Wouldn't stop it if I could,
And I'm asking myself why.

Distant smell of a smokestack,
Clouds turn the skies to black,
Your image fades away,
And I know it won't come back.

Getting louder everyday,
Screeching sound of metal chains,
Wrapped tight around me,
The machine begins to strain.

We're Primed For Destruction,
Of your heaven and earth,
No final distractions,
So bring the fire forth.

Your emptiness,
Has locked me in,
We're Primed For Destruction,
So let the torture begin.

Take me,
And break me,
Full out dominate me,
I just want sucked into your world.

Use me,
Abuse me,
You'll still never lose me,
Catastrophe waits to unfurl.

MAXIMUM POWER!

Just an ordinary night,
Shut the door and hit the lights,
The cogs are turning,
So keep yourself out of sight.

Dark reaper of my soul,
Comes to devour whole,
What I've created,
As the wheels begin to roll.

Pistons are churning,
The oil's burning,
There's no escaping,
When the gears are slowly turning.

We're Primed For Destruction,
Of your heaven and earth,
No final distractions,
So bring the fire forth.

Your emptiness,
Has locked me in,
We're Primed For Destruction,
So let the torture begin.
