Crema de la Metal Do you like your death metal old school? if so, check these guys out. This is a solid debut. Mofsed seems to have something of a fetish for the band Death, and I mean that as a compliment.

about

Davis, California's MOFSED were formed in 2011 by vocalist/guitarist Zakk Thonen and drummer Randy Teresi. Their goal was to play unrelenting, driving, and pounding death metal with dynamic and anthemic lead guitar sections. Mike Clements was brought on for additional lead guitars and session bass, filling out Mofsed's high-flying sound. The album draws from influences such as Death, Vader, Bolt Thrower, Master, The Chasm, Judas Priest, and King Diamond.

Track Name: Rattenkrieg
Taking flight under cover of the night
It’s time to begin invasion
Dropping on shore for the second World War
Gripping the stock of your M1

Race against time behind enemy lines
A labyrinth of death awaits you
The battle is dire, they’re taking heavy fire
But the allied advance must break through

The eyes of the world are upon you
Doing what must be done
Battle through the hedgerows
Freedom can be won
Rattenkrieg

Men dispersed from the 101st
Fighting to capture Carentan
Armies collide in the French countryside
But the allied force will hold strong

Stakes are high, for the fate of mankind
Europe hangs in the balance
Final strike, destroy the Third Reich
Total victory over Nazi Germany

The eyes of the world are upon you
Doing what must be done
Battle through the hedgerows
Freedom can be won
Rattenkrieg
Track Name: Dawn Patrol
1917 Germans take to the skies
Royal airmen are fighting for their lives
Machine guns fire below, dead men lay in the mud
The German jagdstaffel will bring four weeks of blood

The mourning winds blow silently
Over once peaceful grounds
Taking flight for another day
What peace can be found?
Delving deep in the fog of war
Leaving home behind
Bleeding friends and the stench of death
Entrenched within their minds

Death is imminent
there's no turning back
Neither side will rest
Prepare for the attack
This is the one
The war to end them all
Against their enemies
They shall never fall


Endless peril and the lives at stake
Begin to take their toll
Always living in uncertainty
They are the dawn patrol
Gunning hard through blood red skies
Push for victory
Daring actions of courageous men
Live through history
Track Name: Tokkōtai
Diversion comes down from the north
Empty carriers draw them away
The last vessel who assaulted at Pearl
Revenge will be taken this day

Attack the land invasion it’s our only chance
Must shell the allied beachhead before we can advance

Clouds of flak are painting the sky
Steel war machine break through the tide
Musashi leads the imperial fleet
In the Gulf of Leyte she will find defeat
The hell divers come screaming down
Along the Philippines death is all around
Pacific war is getting dire
Divine winds are upon us
Now fire!

The depths, the air, and spanning the seas
The fights all around there’s nowhere to retreat
Scramble the fighters, man your positions
We’ll beat the enemy into submission

The time has come to serve your country and defend your pride
To become a kamikaze, bring honor as you die

Clouds of flak are painting the sky
Steel war machine break through the tide
Musashi leads the imperial fleet
In the Gulf of Leyte she will find defeat
The hell divers come screaming down
Along the Phillipines death is all around
Pacific war is getting dire
Divine winds are upon us
Now fire!
Machine guns fire!
Heavy guns fire!
Torpedos fire!
Track Name: Silent as the Grave
Holy persecution
By those who are sworn to the sands
Sacred institution
Is plaguing throughout the lands

Subhuman impulses rising
Allah will taste your blood
Bow to the savage uprising
Terror will be your god

Bow at the feet of the chosen
Relinquish your humanity
A storm in the east has risen
Demanding your conformity

كافر عقد لسانك تهمس يست الحقيقة
كفر السلالات فيكم يجب عليك البقاء
Silent as the Grave

Religious political subversion
Under a peaceful guise
Violence and forceful conversion
Ultimate human demise

Even women and children
Cannot escape his grasp
Sheep to the savage demon
Victims of his wrath

Bow at the feet of the chosen
Relinquish your humanity
A storm in the east has risen
Demanding your conformity

كافر عقد لسانك تهمس يست الحقيقة
كفر السلالات فيكم يجب عليك البقاء
Silent as the Grave
Track Name: Scroll of Ani
I grant you the sight
Open your mind
Move into the light
Go forth and die
As your senses awake
You must trust in the scroll
More than life is at stake
When you fight for your soul

Battle hard in the land of the dead
A raging war’s inside your head
Conceal your sins at the keepers gate
The scarabs spell will seal your fate
Final keys inside your heart
Impure souls are torn apart
Vicious quests to paradise
For which you pay the ultimate price

Sail to the sun
Alongside Ra
The battle’s just begun
Pharaoh’s war
Slay the darkness
Light is restored
Anubis awaits
You have forsaken Ra
Now pass through the gates
Where death becomes law
Your journey has failed
And the gods you have scorned
Now your fate is unveiled
Your soul shall burn

Can’t escape life after death
The rotting stench of your final breath
Spirit crushed in it’s fetid womb
The blackened void will be your tomb
Ageless fate of a sinful whore
Devoured soul of the blasphemer
Anubis calls your destiny
Doomed to writhe eternally

Sail to the sun
Alongside Ra
The battle’s just begun
Pharaoh’s war
Slay the darkness
Light is restored
Track Name: Chivalry
War as a means to an end
Lives are yours to expend
Gripping fear, death always near in a world of kill or be killed
Beliefs misled, no tears are shed when innocent blood is spilled

Wait for your next meal
Wait for the moment when you will die
Wait for the last friend to say goodbye

Forgo the chivalry of warfare
In men who lay down their lives
What is a war without honor
Where absolute savagery thrives
No more rules of engagement
Only desire to kill
Brainwashed into enslavement
Unholy triumph of will
Forgo the chivalry of warfare
In men who die for a cause
What political motives
Justify killing for god


Forgo the chivalry of warfare
In men who lay down their lives
What is a war without honor
Where absolute savagery thrives
No more room for sympathy
Every day is something you earn
Remembering something history taught us
Mankind refuses to learn

Insatiable hunger
Coupled with pride
A dangerous ego
In which we confide

Step back from the path you walk and look what it leaves behind
No end no glory only misery is what you’ll find
Who will be the first one to break this endless cycle of hate
Who will take a stand before it’s too late
Track Name: The People
Turn your head the other way
It’s none of your concern
You perpetrate your shall lives
While the constitution burns

You cast your vote, forsake your voice
It all matters not
No one it held accountable
Lay back and watch us rot

Give the people what they want
Politician celebrity
Give the people what they want
False sense of security
Give the people what they want
Generations in dismay
Give the people what they want
This is the American way

Control the news, limit free speech
To keep the truth confined
The media will play their part
They gladly keep you blind
Here take my money, here take my rights
Just leave me alone
I can’t be bothered to take a stand
And protect my own home

Give the people what they want
Politician celebrity
Give the people what they want
False sense of security
Give the people what they want
Generations in dismay
Give the people what they want
This is the American way
Track Name: Critical Bondage
Fuel the injustice with materialistic debt
Absolute profit for the economic threat
One global market with a clearance on your rights
Surrendering your freedom, without putting up a fight

Mega corporations with global arms control
Ascension of your government, who gladly play their role
Children forced in labor camps to reinforce elite
A scheme beyond the pyramid, open your eyes and see

Work, buy, consume, die
Slaving for the things you do not need
Work, buy, consume, die
Building up their power with your greed

Third world countries regimented, no labor laws adjust
Only widespread starvation can feed their endless lust
Economy manipulation controls the flow of wealth
Deciders of global affairs: war, politics, and health
Pockets lined with blood and tears enforce rapacity
Only profits and avarice, no humanity

Work, buy, consume, die
Slaving for the things you do not need
Work, buy, consume, die
Building up their power with your greed
Track Name: The Family Ghost (King Diamond cover)
The darkness came closer to home on the
Following night
And Miriam slept like a rock when
Jonathan's face went white

The bedroom was ice cold
But the fire was burning still
The blinding light
The family ghost had risen again...the ghost

Don't be scared, don't be scared now my friend
I am count de lafey
Let me take you to the crypt down below
Where Abigail rests

Let Miriam sleep
She never would understand
Now come let us go... it's time to know

Beware of the slippery stairs
You could easily fall and break your neck
Hand me that torch and I will lead the way
To the secret in the dark

Take a look into the vault, the vault
The sarcophagus...of a child
Abigail has been in here for years and years
Stillborn

The spirit of Abigail is inside your wife
And there's only one way you can stop
The rebirth of evil itself
You must take her life now
