about

Xylophar (Зилофар) is a double album, made to fit snug on a 90 minute cassette (without the bonus tracks). It focuses on the desire for solitude. The omnipresent lead guitar is the voice of the narrator.

"As I sit here writing this on a Sunday morning, it’s absolutely hammering it down with rain outside and the ancient trees I can see outside my window look amazing. I note this as I’m struck by the thought that some Black Metal can act as the perfect accompaniment to nature, seeming to touch on something primal. Natanas, however, is more like the perfect antidote to nature. This is music that seems to want to blacken and despoil nature’s purity and scorch the earth with fire in its wake. At least that’s my impression...

There seems to be a theme of a lone, mournful, off-kilter lead guitar running throughout the album too, almost like it’s documenting the activity of the protagonist in the fictional film that this scores in my mind." - Wonderbox Metal (wonderboxmetal.wordpress.com/2015/04/04/natanas-xylophar-review/)

"I hate it more than soup skin." - MetalShopped

Track Name: Despair Has A Taste
Darkness encloses me
Stifling, close, scream
Got me trapped like an animal
Got me trapped
Right or left, all the same
Hemmed in
Lock step
Lock step
Lock step, all my life
The motions, all a waste
Despair has a taste
In your throat
All in
Sell your soul
Got me trapped like an animal
Lock step
Lock step
Lock step, all my life
The motions, all a waste
Despair has a taste
In your throat
All in
Sell your soul
Got me trapped like an animal
Track Name: Distorted Blasphemy
Distorted blasphemy
Is existence for me
Keep them all at bay
One day I'll see that they pay
Track Name: Cattle To The Slaughter
Cattle to the slaughter
We're bought and sold
Just sucking corporate cock
Nothing we do matters
We're bought and sold

Just sucking corporate cock
It doesn't mean a thing
We can all die today,
It would be the same
We're bought and sold
...Just fuck it all
Track Name: End Of A Loop
I don't want to be here
It's all so useless
End it with a slice
Life's just a roll of the dice
Come, come watch me swing
End of a loop
From a beam
Come watch me swing
End of a loop
From a beam
Watch me swing
Watch me swing
Track Name: Again, Aside
Heart ripped open
Scoop it out
Devour my juices
I'm so empty

Just a package for your merchandise
Crumpled like refuse and tossed aside
I'm so empty on the inside

Nothing means a thing
Nothing means a thing
Nothing means anything
Fuck it all...
Track Name: When I'm Gone
I wish you nothing but the best
When I'm gone

No that's wrong
I wish your life turns to shit
When I'm gone
All your work falls apart
You lose it all
When I'm gone

Scraping bottom of the pit
Of your demise into shit
And you can't get get back out
I hope you fail
When I'm gone

I wish you nothing but the best
When I'm gone
But that's a lie
I hope you die
I hope you end
When I'm gone

Your family out on the street
Beg for scraps
Because you're gone
Wherever I end up to be
I'll sit and laugh
When you're gone
Track Name: Viscosity
Good bye
Fuck you all
There's nothing real
In this world
I can hold on to
So, fuck you all
Good bye
Fuck you all
I'm out of here
Just can't bear
To stay near
You're all so vapid
Hate you all
Let's start over
I'll go first
Good bye
Exiting the stage
All so fake
Fuck you all
