PRE ORDER THE CASSETTE HERE: halfpear.bandcamp.com

Zvi II: Death Stops Us All picks up where the debut left off but this time around Varod enlisted engineer Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice) and the mastering talents of James Plotkin (Khanate) to better capture his expansive sonic palate.

Zvi II begins with the shorter (by Zvi standards) "You've Charmed Me, I Will Stay" that slowly morphs into two long form compositions "Black Leaves" & "Whale Bone Cage", two tracks that are the meat of the record. Both tracks fluctuate between bare reverbed electric guitar and build to cacophonous drone with thick heavy guitars. The album's centerpiece "black leaves" also includes a very special guest vocal performance by Alan Dubin of Gnaw and Khanate fame.

Track Name: I - You've Charmed Me, I Will Stay
i go out there where i can move
i go out there with means to soothe
i know i confide, i can prove
i'll make it in my own mood

i go down there with means to play
i go through it every day
i know i can't fight, i can't complain
i go through it in my own way
Track Name: II - Black Leaves
what if it hurts you? i know you're worth it
and what of your virtues i've longed and burned for
most men wouldn't walk away from a perfect prison
most men wouldn't wouldn't hesitate but i'm far from commonplace

be well

rename yourself, once, twice three times a charmer
reclaim your shelf and you won't starve yourself anymore
there's always another cut
lie down and sleep through the rain
and rest in what you've owned

out there, nowhere, turning vision
not to hold
a bleak winter
out there the rust layers a prison
a vile partner
you're going nowhere
you stay there
you'll stay there

there's always another
lie down and sleep through the rain
lie down and rot in your own filth
now you won't owe anything to us

rot in your own filth
you won't owe anything to us
lie down and sleep through the rain
you won't owe anything to us
Track Name: III - Whale Bone Cage
and you came with nothing left
but i missed it so much
and you'll call when you're out of debt
but it's worse when you crawl up

where's your car and where's your money?
