Pyrocene 06:13
Acrid tongue and low tide Parched and sick Purified Uncontrolled burn Divine Parched and sick Purified Divine You won't see a night again You have been disowned Divine Uncontrolled burn Divine Parched and sick Purified Divine You won't see a night again You have been disowned Pray for night Pray for night Acrid tongue and low tide Parched and sick Purified Uncontrolled burn Divine Parched and sick Purified Divine Take the first breath And try to breathe again Every time that you wake The sun is never down Day over and over again

Dream Weapon 05:13
Phase out Sinking Through the soil, Through the chatter Almost tragic until your captors fade away Alms from the Mother Deader than Saturn Heaven awaits Won’t you make your great escape? Alms to the Mother Deader than Saturn All of it, patterns All of it, patterns All of it, patterns

Sacred deer Wanders alone Burdened with instinct Trying to find shade Disappeared No trace of ours The world turns away from all of our shame Whichever was the single moment that damned it all? What to atone? Just let it go In moments What we called home Frees itself from our harm Grace nor mercy Right on time Too long Our goodbye Free from harm Baptized What could we have done? What to atone?

Crystal clear Just like envy All our skies turning green Rising wind Bristling trauma Search for shelter Heed the storm Crystal clear Like an obsession Darkened clouds Air so cold... And all that we wanted And all of those plans Small and cramped Head for the bottom Now crystal clear I am Envy Lacking trauma, I’m the storm Wasted hours Turned to seasons Now a lifetime... What to show? Rest my head now On the frigid glass Condensation Watch the landscape pass Steal some shut eye But time won’t give itself back ...And all of those plans

Great Mother 08:58
And she aches No time to waste It’s passed her by Obliterate Where we lived And made our mark Sterilized By Mother’s cry In the air The faintest breeze She found a way To Liberate And no more sons And no more daughters And no more knowledge Only certainty Where we lived And made our mark Sterilized By Mother’s cry In the air The faintest breeze She found a way To Liberate “I can absolve” And she wakes From the dark Finds her way out No one to save

about

GENGHIS TRON make their return with their highly anticipated new album, Dream Weapon! The band’s first new studio outing in over a decade, GENGHIS TRON’s Hamilton Jordan and Michael Sochynsky are now joined by two new collaborators: vocalist Tony Wolski and Sumac/Baptists drummer Nick Yacyshyn. Together, the lineup perfects the unique mix of extreme rock and electronic music GENGHIS TRON has pioneered over their storied career. A melding of hypnotic rhythms and densely layered synth soundscapes, Dream Weapon was recorded and produced alongside long-time collaborator Kurt Ballou at God City Studio in Salem, Massachusetts, with additional production and engineering by Ben Chisolm (Chelsea Wolfe) and JJ Heath (Rain City Recorders).

Lyrically and conceptually, Dream Weapon picks up where Board Up The House left off.

“That album’s closing track, ‘Relief,’ was about how humans have become a burden to the planet, and how Earth will endure long after we’re gone,” Jordan explains. “There is sadness at the end, but some relief—and beauty—too. Dream Weapon is, loosely, an album-length meditation on that theme.”

From the ethereal, almost robotic vocal phrasings accompanying the industrial attack of “Pyrocene,” to the chaotic, pulse-pounding drumming acrobatics and cyclical guitar patterns in the album’s triumphant title track, Dream Weapon is not just a nod to GENGHIS TRON’s celebrated past as a metal/progressive/experimental outfit. The new album redefines what these genres, sounds, and musical elements can achieve. Dream Weapon is a record that captures GENGHIS TRON at a matured, focused state; the ebbs and flows of the album are just as hard-hitting as they are dreamy, soaring, and meditative.

Seasoned GENGHIS TRON listeners will find Dream Weapon to be both excitingly fresh and reassuringly familiar. “Though it sounds a bit different than our previous albums, I don't think we approached Dream Weapon any differently than the others,” Jordan explains. “Michael and I take years to write and trade demos, with about 80% of our ideas landing on the cutting-room floor. Once we have a rough song idea we both like, we write dozens of drafts of a song over months before we end up with a final demo.”

“I think one difference in our approach for this album was that we had a strong sense from the outset of what kind of vibe we wanted to create,” Sochynsky adds. “Something more cohesive, meditative and hypnotic.”

Through the album’s inventiveness and rejuvenated approach, Dream Weapon marks another bold step forward in the wildly creative career of GENGHIS TRON, and cements the band's legacy of groundbreaking, genre-defying innovation.
