about

Klaymore has been reanimated for their second full-length album!
"It's Alive" is an hour's worth of non-stop heavy metal/hard rock action that is relentless in its assault on your earholes. Featuring the songwriting chops of brothers Lee & Jesse Prisby along with Sean Rock and former bassist Mike Paine (contributing to one last Klaymore track before his exit). All band members have come out with guns blazing whether in the form of harmonized guitar solos, bass-lead interludes and out of control "explosions" that close out many of the tracks.

about

Klaymore Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Klaymore is a four-piece heavy metal band out of Pittsburgh, PA. From fast-paced and in your face to melody-driven and memorable, Klaymore is an all-guns-blazing, metal onslaught armed with an arsenal of vicious dual-lead guitar licks, thunderous double-bass drumming, octaves upon octaves of vocals, and bass lines bursting through the mix (not to mention a sense of humor). ... more

Track Name: It's Alive!
I am a spinning blade,
And I'll split you in two,
I am a sinking ship,
That's going down on you.

No use in fighting now,
You've awakened the beast,
Wrap your hands around it's neck,
Try to put it back at peace.


A murderer of serenity,
A harvester of anxious screams,
The monster that was sleeping hears your cries.

Awakening into unrest,
Your heart is pounding out your chest,
You break into a nervous sweat, (as you)
Stare into it's single eye,
It's Alive!


Breathing new life into me,
You're mine to command,
Feel free to take this lying down,
There's no need to stand.

An ancient creature we all know,
Hiding under covers,
Summoned from unearthly depths,
To dive into another.


A murderer of serenity,
A harvester of anxious screams,
The monster that was sleeping hears your cries.

Awakening into unrest,
Your heart is pounding out your chest,
You break into a nervous sweat, (as you)
Stare into it's single eye,
It's Alive!

Struggling with internal strife,
We're gonna bring this creature to life,
Without its presence you'll never feel whole,
Your life will be missing a chunk of its soul.

Never give up hope,
Give it one more try,
It's Alive!

*Sean Solo*

*Lee Solo*

A murderer of serenity,

It's Alive!
Track Name: What I Call Life [Explicit]
You want me as your life line,
But I'm so far away,
Causing a mess, live in excess, reality's at bay.

Our worlds have been turned upside down,
So I try to numb the pain,
Soon I'd feel my liver start to quiver when it hears Captain Morgan's name.


Drowning in denial,
Every single night,
I'm hanging by my fingernails to What I Call a Life.

Shove all of my problems,
To the confines of my mind,
As the walls are crashing inwards,
On my train wreck of a life.


I'm well over my limit,
But the mayor has upped my nerve,
Without hesitation, his legislation has put me in the steel reserve.

Vodka and vicodin, could be my new best friends,
You aren't well, but what the hell, all suffering has an end. (Right?)

Whirlwind of confusion,
My mind's a civil war,
I'm grabbing what needs not picked up off of a truck stop whore.

I'm not hurting anybody, I'm just trying to have some fun,
I'd be in bed by 8pm, and get back home by one.


Drowning in denial,
Every single night,
I'm hanging by my fingernails to What I Call a Life.

Shove all of my problems,
To the confines of my mind,
As the walls are crashing inwards,
On my train wreck of a life.

*Lee Solo*

*Lee/Sean Solo*

*Sean Solo*

Traumatic stress consumes your life,
When I thought it wouldn't linger,
As I'm screaming, drunk, and breaking shit next to a man with dragon fingers.

BAC outweighs my GPA,
What does this have in store?
Three out of five times, before it's night time,
You'd find me on the floor.

In retrospect, I hate myself,
And past situations,
Like when you told me that you love me and then I fucked that aryan.

But I was only 18,
Not prepared with what to do,
I'm sorry for how i continued and abandoned you.


Drowning in denial,
Every single night,
I'm hanging by my fingernails to What I Call a Life.

Shove all of my problems,
To the confines of my mind,
As the walls are crashing inwards,
On my train wreck of a life.

Drowning in denial,
Every single night,
I'm hanging by my fingernails to What I Call a Life.

Shove all of my problems,
To the confines of my mind,
As the walls are crashing inwards,
On my train wreck of a life.
Track Name: Matriarch
You think that I am concentrated evil,
You think there's only poison in my veins,
You see me as a creature from beneath the earth,
I am but a demon in your wake.


Infernal Matriarch,
Your broodlings keep you in the dark,
They might have grown within your hive,
But you don't know about their lives.

Infernal Matriarch,
It's not too late for a new start,
Accept that I've latched on,
And stop thinking that we're only wrong.


You see me as a vermin in your garden,
You wanna see my mouth filled up with sand,
I am but a plague upon your saplings,
You don't wanna know where I've dug my hands.


Infernal Matriarch,
Your broodlings keep you in the dark,
They might have grown within your hive,
But you don't know about their lives.

Infernal Matriarch,
It's not too late for a new start,
Accept that I've latched on,
And stop thinking that we're only wrong.

*Lee/Jesse Solo*

*Lee Solo*

Infernal Matriarch,
Your broodlings keep you in the dark,
They might have grown within your hive,
But you don't know about their lives.

Infernal Matriarch,
Your soul is burning in the dark,
Accept that I've latched on,
And stop thinking that we're only wrong.

*Sean Solo*

You think I'm gonna fill her heart with razors,
Believing that my touch can only sting,
You think you'll be the one to pick the pieces up,
I guess you'll never see my angel wings.


Infernal Matriarch,
Your broodlings keep you in the dark,
They might have grown within your hive,
But you don't know about their lives.

Infernal Matriarch,
It's not too late for a new start,
Accept that I've latched on,
And stop thinking that we're only wrong.
Track Name: Useless... [Explicit]
You don't care that I'm on my knees,
You'd rather wrap me up in your plastic sleeves,
When situations start turning south,
It leaves a bad taste in both our mouths.


I've done much worse than what I've asked you,
When will these games we play ever be through,
I feel disgusting and my point's further proved,
I've never felt more fucking Useless than when I'm next to you.


You say you want my help and that I know what's right,
But you won't take advice without giving a fight,
You say you need me but reject me through and through,
I feel completely Useless when I'm needed by you.


I've done much worse than what I've asked you,
When will these games we play ever be through,
I feel disgusting and my point's further proved,
I've never felt more fucking Useless than when I'm next to you.

Because I've done much worse than what I've asked you to do,
When will these games we play ever be through,
I feel disgusting and my point's further proved,
I've never felt more fucking Useless than when I'm next to you.


As you try to get to a different state,
You're slowly becoming everything I hate
You tell me you love me and make me feel torn,
If I'm so important to you why did others get more.


I've done much worse than what I've asked you,
When will these games we play ever be through,
I feel disgusting and my point's further proved,
I've never felt more fucking Useless than when I'm next to you.

Because I've done much worse than what I've asked you to do,
When will these games we play ever be through,
I feel disgusting and my point's further proved,
I've never felt more fucking Useless than when I'm next to you.

Because I've done much worse than what I've asked you to do,
When will these games we play ever be through,
I feel disgusting and my point's further proved,
I always feel so fucking Useless when I'm inches from you.

Because I've done much worse than what I've asked you to do,
When will these games we play ever be through,
I feel disgusting and my point's further proved,
I always feel so fucking Useless when I'm looking at you.
Track Name: Queen of Nightmares
Plodding on your insurrection,
A victim of your own infection,
You took what was close to me,
With your delusions of reality


Your forked tongue spreads misery,
That comes right back to me.


Queen of Nightmares,
Goddess of shame,
Let you be cast back,
From whence you came.

Oh, Queen of Nightmares,
Writhing in filth,
I see you lurking,
From my windowsill.

*Sean Solo*

Fetid creature stalking the night,
Showing up when I hit the lights,
I'd rather fill my brain with lead,
Than see you when I go to bed.

Further refuge can't be sought,
When you invade my every thought,
A phantasm sent to creep,
Keeping me from peaceful sleep.


Your nails in my back make me wanna scream,
As you haunt all of my dreams.


Queen of Nightmares,
Goddess of shame,
Let you be cast back,
From whence you came.

Oh, Queen of Nightmares,
Writhing in filth,
I see you lurking,
From my windowsill.

*Jesse Solo*

Moths in the fire,
Drawn to it's light,
So many others,
Catching your blight.

I'm lying dormant,
Awaiting your doom,
You watch me sleeping,
From the corner of my room.

*Lee Solo*

Your forked tongue spreads misery,
That comes right back to me.


Queen of Nightmares,
Goddess of shame,
Let you be cast back,
From whence you came.

Oh, Queen of Nightmares,
Writhing in filth,
I see you lurking,
From my windowsill.
Track Name: Temple of Dagon
Devil woman, in her stare,
Watches you lie sleeping there,
Ponders out the windowsill,
She'll trade your love for money still.


Your lies are placed
Your trust's erased,
Your secret you could not keep safe.

Betrayal now,
Thick in the air,
The servants come to cut your hair.


Your eyes have both been gouged out,
And your head has now been shaved,
Where you once ruled proudly,
You're no more than a slave.

You spin their wheel in agony,
You are now their mule,
In the land that you held judgement on,
You're no more than a tool.


I've guided you,
Through many fights,
Though you broke the vow of the Nazarite.

These infidel,
Are no use to me,
We'll tear down their false god of the sea.


Put your life into my hands,
And bring glory to my name,
You've asked me for a second chance,
So I'll help you just the same.

I am the God of Abraham,
Let my vengeance guide you on,
Rend the walls, destroy their halls,
Let none survive in the Temple of Dagon.

*Lee Solo*

*Lee Solo Continued*

*Sean Solo*


You let yourself lie dormant,
Though your strength it has returned,
Before the crowd, they laugh out loud,
Though their city soon will burn.

Praying to the heavens,
As the wind blows through your hair,
The shrine ready for destruction,
Caught in your now blind stare.
Track Name: World on Fire
The eyes of the gods have turned from us,
And left us to our ways of ignorance and lust,
Rotting in an atmosphere of deprivation,
This world is up for incineration.


Stand back,
Coming under attack,
We can sit and watch the flames burn higher.

It keeps turning,
Perpetually burning,
We've come to set this world on fire.


Spark the flame,
Place the blame,
Dominate,
Incinerate.


The walls of the inferno are closing in,
Baptism by fire is the price of your sins,
Earthly corruption is the source of the blaze,
The planet will be branded at the end of its days.

Our lives are just a battlefield for higher forces,
Filling us with pain, deceit, regret, and extortion,
Eradicating quickly from the situation,
Erased by a tidal wave of conflagration.


Stand back,
Coming under attack,
We can sit and watch the flames burn higher.

It keeps turning,
Perpetually burning,
We've come to set this world on fire.


*Lee Solo*

*Sean Solo*

*Lee/Sean Solo*


Stand back,
Coming under attack,
We can sit and watch the flames burn higher.

It keeps turning,
Perpetually burning,
We've come to set this world on fire.

Stand back,
Coming under attack,
Your life will never be the same.

It keeps turning,
Perpetually burning,
We've come to set your world aflame.
Track Name: Swallowing Razors (Fade Away)
I've seen that lines are forming,
Invisibly cross your face,
Despite our tries, we can't get by them,
And they can't be erased.

There's nothing left to try,
And nothing left to do,
I'd take my life away,
If I could give one back to you.


(Because) I'd swallow the razors,
That tear you up inside,
I'd walk with you through fire,
As pieces of us die.

I'd give you all my strength,
To spit back in their face,
Those days are gone and over,
As we wait for them, to fade away.


A soldier of misfortune,
With still a distance to go,
No wounds or battle scars,
Are physically shown.

Time is the only bandage,
To heal your agony,
I'll give you a hundred better years,
Than the sixteen you spent without me.


(Because) I'd swallow the razors,
That tear you up inside,
I'd walk with you through fire,
As pieces of us die.

I'd give you all my strength,
To spit back in their face,
Those days are gone and over,
As we wait for them, to fade away.


Deep in my mind I know you'll feel the same again,
But I can't help but think we've got a ways until then.

*Lee Solo*

*Lee/Sean Solo*

I'd swallow the razors,
That tear you up inside,
I'd walk with you through fire,
As pieces of us die.

I'd give you all my strength,
To spit back in their face,
Those days are gone and over,
As we wait for them, to fade away.

I'm swallowing razors,
Just to keep you alive,
Every day we walk through fire,
As pieces of us die.

I've given all my strength,
And spit back in their face,
The worst days are gone and over,
As we wait for them, to fade away.
Track Name: 11:58 PM
The countdown's coming closer to the ending of our kind,
The curtain's closing for the final time.
Hold your breathe, the clock of death, ticks faster every day,
The hands of doom, are two minutes away.


And now evil's taken root, and we've budded from it's stem,
No time to hesitate,
They're pounding at the gate,
It's 11:58 P.M.


All you've ever known will soon be lost, in this worldwide holocaust,
As the faces on TV tell you their lies.
Tank treads rolling through the mud, fueled up by civilian blood,
Their war machines devour all our lives.

Four demons riding on their horses, missiles all plotting their courses,
God's mistakes will soon be reconciled,
Dragged by the neck into the slaughter, your children turned to cannon fodder,
The world we claim to love that we defiled.


And now evil's taken root, and we've budded from it's stem,
No time to hesitate,
They're pounding at the gate,
It's 11:58 P.M.

*Lee Solo*

Hands of death, striking the hour,
We are all just, slaves to power,
Somewhere in time, you'll get piece of mind,
But who'll be left to pray for you, when you're the one to die.

Your life delayed, in a flash of a blade
At a loss for words, as the waste is laid,
Second by second, your life is gone,
So fight to the death, and die with your boots on.

*Lee Solo*

*Sean Solo*

And now evil's taken root, and we've budded from it's stem,
No time to hesitate,
They're pounding at the gate,
It's 11:58 P.M.

And now evil's taken root, and we've budded from it's stem,
No time to hesitate,
They're pounding at the gate,
It's 11:58 P.M.
Track Name: Darkness to Dawn
In the dim lit dark of midnight,
Wander by the corner streetlight,
The fog fades just enough to see,
That My shadows walking faster than me.

(And now I) I feel so empty feel so cold,
Expectations I can't uphold,
Days are short the night comes quickly,
And I can't help but drag you with me.


Darkness is heading somewhere,
Passing time, moving slow,
Far away but I know it's out there,
Follow me let it go.


You play by your midnight taste,
Of capturing and laying waste,
Inside your soul it's fully grown,
It pulls you into the unknown.

Drain the bottles to build your ships,
Floating on lies that left your lips,
But you just can't relate,
So you scratch and claw, there's no escape,


Darkness is heading somewhere,
Passing time, moving slow,
Far away but i know it's out there,
Follow me, let it go.

Darkness is heading somewhere,
Passing time, moving slow,
Far away but i know it's out there,
Follow me, let it go.

*Lee Solo*

Darkness is heading somewhere,
Passing time, moving slow,
Far away but i know it's out there,
Follow me, let it go.

*Sean Solo*

Darkness is heading somewhere,
Passing time, moving slow,
Far away but i know it's out there,
Follow me, let it go.

Darkness is heading somewhere,
Passing time, moving slow,
Far away but i know it's out there,
Follow me, let it go.
Track Name: Threshold of Paine
In careful contemplation, devising his will,
He prepares his judication, he's poised for the kill,
Judgement falling swiftly, like his foot to the floor,
Your god now stands among you, to spread his righteous words.


Oh, like a face through the clouds,
His hammer comes down,
In justice's name,
You cross the Threshold of Paine.


Power at its maximum, rings through his voice,
A world that's gripped with evil, leaves him no choice,
His bastion of light, grasped firmly in his hand,
Though holy auras light his way, he's the epitome of man.


Oh, like a face through the clouds,
His hammer comes down,
In justice's name,
You cross the Threshold of Paine.

Like a face through the clouds,
His hammer comes down,
In justice's name,
You cross the Threshold of Paine.

*Jesse Solo*

*Lee Solo*

*Sean Solo*

*Lee/Sean Solo*

Oh, like a face through the clouds,
His hammer comes down,
In justice's name,
You cross the Threshold of Paine.

Like a face through the clouds,
His hammer comes down,
In justice's name,
You cross the Threshold of Paine.
Track Name: Laid to Rest [Explicit]
Brought down to a whisper
Further dimming the lights,
The terror is retreating,
Back into the night.

Enveloped by exhaustion,
It returns, to it's resting place,
From hallowed ground,
It's steps are retraced.


Once thirsting, for human flesh,
Now cuddled in your nest,
Three to five million souls were wasted, before you were laid rest.

Once a skin seeking destroyer,
Giving it your best,
Three to five million souls were wasted, before you were laid rest.


Presence quickly fading,
Gently lulled to sleep,
It's vicious vivacity,
It could not long keep

A creature of man's undoing,
Escapes from our world,
Soon to return,
When the curtains are again unfurled


From a height it's downward falling,
There's been a silence to it's calling.

*Sean Solo*

Once thirsting, for human flesh,
Now cuddled in your nest,
Three to five million souls were wasted, before you were laid rest.

Once a skin seeking destroyer,
Giving it your best,
Three to five million souls were wasted, before you were laid rest.

Once thirsting, for human flesh,
Now cuddled in your nest,
Three to five million souls were wasted, before you were laid rest.

Once a skin seeking destroyer,
Giving it your best,
Three to five million souls were wasted, before you were laid rest.


You may not realize,
Whether in your conscious mind,
Or even in your own surroundings,
But just over an hour ago,
A creature, as ancient as time itself,
Had been woken up, from it's immortal slumber, and had run rampant, through our lives,
But now,
It has been Laid to Rest, for the time being,
But, just when you think you've seen the last of it,
It will be back again,
And its presence will continue to haunt you,
One. Last. Time.
