about

The father of Effrontery guitarist-composer Péter Lipák deceased after a long struggle. Our new album guides through that painful process with cruel honesty. The „Seven years of agony” commemorates all our departed relatives, as our vocalist too experienced an irreparable loss during times of songwriting. We hope that this album will help other people to get over their personal tragedies too.

Track Name: Enter the Misery
Beware of your demise
Prepare yourself now that you arrived
If only you would know what hardships await
A life of suffering, distress and hate

Don't expect too much
For all your dreams will be crushed
Gradually bereaved
From cradle to the grave

This place diffuses iniquity
Your role is already set
The actions you take are in vain
Drifting further towards the end
Pain from thousands of small wounds
Most of them will never heal
Searching for a way to comfort
Just to find out only sorrow is real

Struggling to maintain the illusion
Fooling yourself into belief
Does it matter whoever you are?
In the end your efforts will fail
Dispossessed you'll stand all alone
Forgotten will be your name

Enter the misery
You'll never break free

solo: Peter

Shattered by the sense that you're no one
What you built was all based on lies
Too late to retrace or to regret
You have to pay the price

This is the path we all walk through
Spiraling down into our doom

solo: Peter/Ferenc

This place diffuses iniquity
Your role is already set
The actions you take are in vain
Drifting further towards the bitter end

The end
Track Name: Autoscopic Journey
Hallucination or is this for real?
A darkened sense began a journey far beyond belief

Another aspect of existence
Unfolds before me

Paralyzed but free

So unobscured, in the distance
I behold my own body

Disarrayed consciousness

Leaving the cage of mortal flesh
The threshold is passed

There's no turning back

Lost all contact with the outside world
They cannot hear my words

I feel no weight

Time is frozen, physics fail to operate
No wisdom on earth can ever explain
The helplessness, the desperation
Blurred are my eyes, numb perception

Light fades forever
I depart, never to return

solo: Peter
Track Name: World of Subjection
Awakened from the dream, I'm still confused
Searching for reasons to hope I will pull through
Perplexity culminates within this mind
How long will it take? Is there a way out?

Doubts…
Questions…
Fears…
...All unexplained

Why do I long death being so young?
Screaming with my arms raised to the sky
Why do I feel so overpressured
In this world of subjection?

Fully disillusioned
I take life into my own hands
Swallowing these pills I forget

Why do I long death being so young?
Screaming with my arms raised to the sky
Why do I feel so overpressured
In this world of subjection?

Overpressured in this world of subjection
Track Name: Poisonous
solo: Peter

Look around and see how ravaged this land has became,
Full of hate and anger, people in necessity
Living in hopelessness, never to have a chance
For a better life, tormented ‘till it all ends

Distressing signs, questions everywhere
Uncertain conditions, the tension's in the air
This deadlock we have secured, it's destined to explode
Observing this in a large scale it's predictable

solo: Ferenc

A nation demoralized, on the brink of depression
With failing power to withstand, we succumb to this pressure

solo: Peter

Advices are all false, serving a purpose
None contains the truth, creating confusion
Leave everything behind and start all again
Seems like the only way to kick us in

(Time to escape)

solo: Peter

No point in denying, there is no future here
The atmosphere is poisonous
The bridges are burning, nothing to do or say
Falling behind is poisonous

solo: Ferenc

Look around and see how ravaged this land has became,
Full of hate and anger, people in necessity
Living in hopelessness, never to have a chance
For a better life, tormented ‘till it all ends
Track Name: Profound Marks
Seems like the harms I've endured have left profound marks on me
I feel after all I've seen, my character's changed
I've always preferred straightforwardness, but now I'm not so sure
Honor and trust has no meaning anymore

"Always do unto others
As you'd have them do to you"
In appearance it seems so nice
Too bad it's never true
As everything falls to pieces all around
There is no remorse left inside

Now it's time for me to be the one who takes others for fools
For all those long years I have been ripped off

"Always do unto others
As you'd have them do to you"
In appearance it seems so nice
Too bad it's never true
As everything falls to pieces all around
There is no remorse left inside

solo: Peter

Bitterness and cynicism have finally taken total control
The urge to give back is now stronger than ever before
The times of my innocence I can no longer remember
Morals and conscience lost their values for me forever

solo: Ferenc

Seems like the harms I've endured have left profound marks on me
I feel after all I've seen, my character's changed
I have always preferred straightforwardness, but I'm not so sure
Honor and trust has no meaning anymore
Track Name: The Dread Within
With brutal impact comes the strike of fear
To shatter reason, to defeat our will
It dominates us, it keeps us on hold
There seems no escape, no chance to save our souls

Existence can't be fulfilled playing this game
Trapped by self-confliction, disorder we create

Values annulled by this dread
All we ever reached is broken, ripped to shreds
A horrid nightmare, future and life decayed
With doubtfulness, vague dysfunctionality

Existence can't be fulfilled playing this game
Trapped by self-confliction, disorder we create

Human relations thoroughly being strained
Constant phobia leaves all people estranged
Dread within crumbles everyone’s beliefs
In this cancer-stricken society

Our past slowly fades into oblivion
Meaning of persistent struggles are long gone
Should I resist or give in to the urge to flee?
Sweep away confinement and be ultimately free

Existence can't be fulfilled playing this game
Trapped by self-confliction, disorder we create
Track Name: Revelation
Shocked as my time's running out, I'm drifting close to death
Thinking about my life, I wonder where did I lose track?
Dismayed as I survey my life's decomposition
With fear I face the mirror, scared of the reflection staring back

Can't bear the thought of reaching the end of my days
To make no difference, and leave without a trace
Life goes on as I fall into decay

How fast everything passed by, I never came aware
So much more things to work out, it cannot just end this way
Never felt satisfied, the hunger is still inside me
My goals are yet to fulfill, I can't die before I truly lived

solo: Peter

What would I give if I could get back those wasted years
Redress, as I refuse to resign all my hopes and dreams
I still cannot believe that's all that has been given
Broken and dispossessed of hope, I'm waiting for the end complete

Can't bear the thought of reaching the end of my days
To make no difference, and leave without a trace
Life goes on as I fall into decay

Life goes on as I fall into decay
Track Name: Seven Years of Agony
It is here, I can feel the presence of the reaper yet I have no fear
Face to face I meet my doom; I know it will be over soon
I’m strong, but I don’t want to fight, it has to end now
It’s time to walk into the tranquil light

Seven years of agony
Seven years haunted me

Don’t be late. I am not afraid of you anymore
Looking back, I saw what you have done to me
Your eyes were empty and meaningless. Today I can be with them
Perhaps the consummation takes a different form.

solo: Peter

Finally, I can rest at last
(At last, at last!)
Waited for this day for so long

Yesterday has passed and today is bleak
I’m fading away like water on ink
You hold my hand, which I have to let go
Believe me, I wish it wouldn't be so
The hourglass won't stop
(It won’t stop, it won’t stop!)
Leave my side please; I need you to go
There is something I have to pass through...

solo: Ferenc

Today is mine, let me say goodbye before I close my eyes
The last time; I know I won’t see the sunrise

solo: Peter

Finally, I can rest at last
Waited for this day for so long

Ash to ash and dust to dust
I have come full circle
My time has passed
This is my final rest

solo: Peter
