Despised Icon - In The Arms Of Perdition Lyrics



Plunged in bitterness
Seduced by an ocean of discontent
Carrying an everlasting smile with insouciance
Cultivating this disconnection with every single interaction

You won't lure me any further
I've been drinking too much shadow and now maybe I shall blossom
This misconception of human loneliness must be disregarded

I will stare at life like I never did before
This game is useless and everything so deceptive
My ambitions may look low but so is the price. I cannot win
What's the meaning of this precious souvenir?
Suppress these feelings

Forget the man you were
Even if we both knew that you'd rather be unloved and...
Forget the man you were
...nameless than be fictively surrounded

Carrying an everlasting smile with insouciance
I honestly know that demons will not hear me scream
and angels won't see me cry
Isolation is in the fact that the only thing I require
No false promises await in my nightmares
Nothing, except my own predestined downfall
Look at this smile and think I'm cheerful like you always were...

    Uploaded 10 years eggo. That OG shit

  55. Yvan The Impact Reviewer

    When gangsta meets metal

  56. Thrashmetalkicksass

    Not sure this is deathcore actually

    ryanexsus

    One of the first deathcore bands actually. They're all Montreal hardcore Frenchies that added metal to the band's sound.

  57. Chad Bailey

    Socio-rinse '07-17... Decadent reprisal for despised icon on in the arms of perdition. Breakdown it all ; as it all gets smashed.

  58. ZombryaTheDark

    I still remember discovering these guys back in 07 from headbangers ball

    Deth Meddl

    that vocals back then! boooya blew me away. like waking the cadaver :D

  59. James Ahrens

    metalcore mastery

  60. terminator_ clone

    this song is brutal all the haters are fans of gay rap music

  61. Son Goku

    Intro sounds like Divine by KoRn.
    Not a bad thing, of course.

    Vinny V

    Blaire Russ There's certainly a Korn vibe to this song, not just the intro but some of the riffs and the tone. Those dissonant riffs are like the intro riffs on Korn - Blind.

  62. Cxrt3r

    On,e here for the dank memes
    Death ore is funny to me

    Brian Neijts

    you are a dank meme

  63. Stéphane Laesser

    I just went to this place, it was an ancient Radar/bunker in Québec

  64. xXRedxSlugXx

    4:40 "NOTHING CAN SUCK MY BALL!"

  65. GuitarmanST

    The ever popular one foot hop punch. 'MY BALLS...... NO ONE CAN TOUCH MY BALLS!'

  66. Randall Earwood

    That bass slide..

  67. Lord Honkler

    I never heard of this band until yesterday, they played a kick ass show at Impericon :D

  68. Ryan Taylor

    at 5:00 you actually here the bass lol, & Play 000000.

    Snake

    Then you are deaf, cause i hear the bass the whole song through.

    Thrashmetalkicksass

    Yeah fuck him, bass tone is great

    Ryan Taylor

    Thrashmetalkicksass mostly that part. not unless you have a good pair of headphones

    Thrashmetalkicksass

    Dunno , I can hear bass throughout the whole song

    Ryan Taylor

    Thrashmetalkicksass I hear it I just didn't hear then. my headphones didn't work

  69. NaturalBB

    It's 2016 and this video is just as brutal as it was 9 years ago. The fucking breakdown at 4:21 is the best I've ever heard in my life. It's a fucking masterpiece.

    random amazing person

    Cuttrogue 2017

    alexiskillmobile

    I've been listening to breakdown-filled music for the past 10 years and I only heard this song today. This is in my top 3 best breakdowns of all time

    Koragh

    2019 dog

    Total Fucking Darkness

    Kaiveran Lugheidh

    Gerald A. Mayo "Nothing except my own"

  82. Sebastian Minix

    seriously no one else noticed that the intro to this sounds exactly like the intro to destruction of a statue by suicide silence

  83. J.Andrés Marín Acevedo

    esto es inigualable. real death metal hard core.

  84. Evan Pitzner

    The moment you realize this is 8 years old..

  86. joshm2006

    this is the only band i will let get away with pig squealing. every single other bree bree deathcore band is 100% horrible dog shit

    V&J FOREVER 666

    joshm2006 waking the cadavers breees good

    Tribal Blood

    With blood comes cleansing. That's all.

    Martin The Collector

    ANALEPSY bitches. They ara actual death metal, the brutal type.

    Ozz Delongueuil

    Steve ( the pig quealing guy) is my old time friend and it was more of a joke at first to "learn" metal signing we used to inspire and do squeedididly and it ended up souding like pig squeals :p

  87. HolyShitOnTheCross ƚ

    This band is cool and all but its like the weirdest shit lol deathcore but with dudes jumpin around like gangsters

    Nellson Stout

    I usually hate deathcore and always hate white guys wearing snapbacks and trying to look and act like gangsters but for some reason still love these guys

    chromegnats

    Haha they are the only band that it works for. It’s crazy that it doesn’t seem corny for me but for them it just works... not to say all bands with the style are corny, but yeah. They are kind of a rare case where all that shit completely works for me.

    cold nights in the desert

    Maybe that's just how they like to dress, nothing wrong with that

  88. BrainSeepsOut

    Remember when Century Media uploaded fucking 240p videos?

  89. Ishak Heppner

    Liiiiiive aaand dissmmmaaaaaaaayyy iiiiit

  90. NOISEf7

    They should not add pig squeal because they are not able to do it live...

    Caleb

    +NOISEf7 I can tell you from several live performances that he has no problem with the squeals on stage.

    NOISEf7

    several performance myself i like the band don't get me wrong and it's band from where imfrom so im not bashing them but those performance was not squealing at all not even close

    Nekristus

    +NOISEf7 They removed the squeeling from the last album as well, it's not a technical issue. They just got over squeeling, that's all (Btw squeels are very easy. Probably the easiest extreme vocals to perform).

    Sturmbro629

    Listen to the new album then.

  91. Duke of Tunes

    probably one of the sickest breakdowns i ever heard!

  92. Obscure Creation

    The instant change in tempos was incredible. Love it.

  93. Arthur Phung

    Nice breakdown in the end :O

  94. SaturnineXTS

    The death metal parts of their songs are sadistically brutal, gotta love'em. Anyone know a death metal band who play evil riffs like that? I mean like the riff that starts at 1:02.

    dominik k

    @SaturnineXTS Hate Eternal

    arghy doodles

    @SaturnineXTS Suffocation.

    Jonathan Leclerc

    @SaturnineXTS Depths Of Hatred!!! :D

    Adhit Android

    @SaturnineXTS Brutal Truth, Suffocation, Carcass' old releases, Cannibal Corpse

  95. Daniel Betz

    I love despised icon I really do, but they did not invent or pioneer shit in deathcore. The red chord is like 2 to 3 yrs older than these guys and they are deathcore so if anything the red chord did more to pioneer the deathcore movement... And they are better than di in my opinion... Like I said I love despised icon but seriously I hate when people make erroneous statements that have no validity to them.

    James Watson

    @Daniel Betz  who really cares?

    Cody Thompson

    +Daniel Betz yeah

    Nellson Stout

    The Red Chord kicks ass. Not every song sounds alike and the riffs aren't just basic chuggy shit

  96. gajo

    The drummer from this band, CJ from TAIM, jason richardson from BoO and Dan kenny from SS should make a band.

    FadedColors19

    His name is Alex. c:

    gajo

    @FadedColors19 thanks 

    Anun AMiss

    CJ is the most boring vocalist ever, though..

    Desolation Incarnate

    +HarvesterOfSorrow01 The drummer from Here Comes The Kraken, Chris Storey from All Shall Perish, Brandon from Veil Of Maya, and Dominic Lapointe from Beyond Creation need to make an amazing band.

    gajo

    @Virgin Smasher beyond creation omggggg
