Despised Icon - The Aftermath Lyrics



Laying low, lurking deep down below
Resurface, catch your breath
Rise back from the depths
Rise back from the depths
Rise up, rise back up
Rise back from the depths
Rise up, rise back up
Rise back from the depths

One more attempt
Suffer my wrath
Feel my contempt
The aftermath

The aftermath
Damn you all, put you all to sleep
I am not a saviour, nor am I a sheep
None can appease
Suffer my wrath
Down on your knees
The aftermath

No peace
Tear it all down, I will never cease
No rest, no peace
Tear it all down, tear it piece by piece

Laying low, lurking deep down below
Resurface, catch your breath
Rise back from the depths
Rise up, rise back up
Rise back from the depths
Rise up, rise back up
Rise back from the depths
Rise up, rise back up
Rise back from the depths

One more attempt
Suffer my wrath
Feel my contempt
The aftermath
End it all, carry out my plan
The ills of modern man
The aftermath
Damn you all, put you all to sleep
I am not a saviour, I will cut you deep
Watch as I feast
Suffer my wrath
Unleash the beast
The aftermath

No peace
Tear it all down, I will never cease
No rest, no peace
Tear it all down, tear it piece by piece
Tear it all down, tear it piece by piece

I'm in high gear with a lust for red
Stay clear, or better yet, play dead
Famished with a taste for blood
Make it bleed until it floods
The beast awakens

I'm in high gear with a lust for red
Stay clear, or better yet, play dead
The beast awakens
Famished with a taste for blood
Make it bleed until it floods
The beast awakens

Laying low, lurking deep down below
Resurface, catch your breath
Rise back from the depths
Rise up, rise back up
Rise back from the depths

  1. RUPTURE D

    BRUTAL ASF AS ALWAYS✊✊✊

  2. Jacq CHL

    Once they started playing, the snow started melting...

  3. Misheard Lyrics

    0:15 WHATS WITH POOPING DOGS

    I NUTCRACK BACON

  4. Hammersmashed68

    This album is still one of the best comeback records in all of metal...and yes, I said comeback because they were gone for a while

    ccchase420

    beast was that album though

  5. Ernesto Juárez

    though they were split up

  6. timbo slice

    0:53 I like semen on my ice cream?

  7. Requiem for Redemption

    SICK! 🔥🤘🏼🤘🏼🔥

  8. Nick Birge

    So confused by all the "dadcore", and "boring" comments.

    Like I've been listening to this band for 15 years, and I'm only 28... This is the best metal band I've ever seen live. This is the best band of it's genre. If you don't know, you're a poser.

    Madjentah

    Nick Birge seen them live in 2008. Damn, the quality of sound and performance was equal to the listening cd at home, I was so impressed.

    Nick Birge

    @Madjentah I saw them in 08 as well in Pcola, FL... With The Acacia Strain, and Implosive Disgorgence.

    Kurt

    Kings of deathcore man. I lost my DI hat in highschool but still have my gold foil hoodie. These guys were my favorite band 2005-2009

    Nick Birge

    @Kurt someone stole my foil hoodie :(

  9. KSA

    hope that guitars will be fine after shooting this video

  10. BELFAST BRIGADE

    Fuck ObeyTheBrave and praise Despised Icon

  11. Shr0_omy

    they sound more like Hatebreed, not deathcore

  12. T-800

    All u fucks talkin shit, your albums sound great👎

  13. AzaGameplay

    Please release a new album every year and i'll buy it. PLZZZ

  14. Xenofob

    When Hatebreed goes to the Brutal Slamming Death Metal

  15. Victor Es del turret

    Holy f I love this song. Badass!

  16. KRZY !KZ

    They have always done the best with song structure. How they can build up for a minute n half and it not stickin out to much. Like a light weight on the sound thats getting heavier and heavier. Solid as always.

  17. Panarino

    Damn that breakdown is heavy as fuck

  18. Zame Never Dies

    A lot wrong with this.

    Misheard Lyrics

    Zame Never Dies like you

  19. Dustin Risner

    This fits well with - Split - The beast awakens.

  20. Jacob Murray

    L'hiver du Québec tabarnak

  21. Atvena

    Just sounds like a more death/brutal/heavier version of hatebreed.

  22. nyr36

    It's like six feet under meets hatebreed.

  23. dontgive afuck

    this is hardcore, its not deathcore, they have much more hardcore than deathcore tho.
    Don't wanna sound like a douchebag, but...hear some SS to remind yourself what the deathcore is.

    Nick Burns

    This is absolutely deathcore.  Suicide Silence hasn't put out a proper deathcore album since No Time To Bleed.

  24. Adam Rodriguez

    (Brittish animal documentary voice)
    The footprints that each member puts in the snow that you can see on drone shots is small. Its come to be known as "venue circles" this level of venue circles is of the "slightly bigger than average club" variety. It is here that deathcore bands attempt to attract a new mate by reclaiming previous lands, long since forgotten. Only guided by a faint whisper in the wind. They hear their name in the wind. As well as the hush of the crowd when certain riffs entice their targeted audience lol

  25. bnz012

    Eric jarrin. Is the best guy for this sound. Hands down

    despisederic

    Thank you, that's very flattering. As much humble as I am, I'll take it!

  26. Jordon Lorenzo

    brutal. fucking. grooving.

  27. Verry Jupiter

  28. Herwan Dinata

    FUCKIN BEAST🔥

  29. Mike Demauriez

    Marin Stanca

    they States recording a new album

  30. Nicolas Jacob

    A lot of comments saying that this is boring. Wow I mean i'm 17 years old, this band exists since I'm 1 or 2 years old. I love new school Deathcore and his djent influence, but this is old school Deathcore bring in by the oldest band in the genre. Get your facts right before talking shit about this guys.

    Matthew Joseph

    Icon RIPS, og deathcore my dude

    Chris;is

    Exactly right. Without them, the sound of today would not even exist. They are and where a Huge inspiration for everyone in the genre.

    Brian Neijts

    this song is pretty good

    FuCkInGWhItEcHaPeL

    Good for you, dude. You know a hell of a lot more than the miserable 30-year-old assholes on here. And they can’t say shit to me because I’m 27. Been listening to these guys since high school. Props to you for being so young and still appreciating a band like this, man.

  31. Yogi Yahya

    It just me , or this video had connection with In the arms of perdition video XD

  32. MILA Martini

    me paran la pija

  33. juan loko

    a shit song and mostly shit album, to much hard core shit and less death
    core, The song beast ist by far the best and maybe 2 songs are "ok", and some isolated riffs some there,
    nothing even close on the great level from ills of the modern man,, a
    shame.. fuck it

  34. George Frideric Handel

    i started listening to them today they are great

  35. Steel Panther

    Everything sounds mint.

  36. salina ember

    when i think of Deathcore i think of Despised Icon... been that way since 2007

    BELFAST BRIGADE

    It was grindcore then.....

  37. Sam Gilmour

    Anybody else think it sounds like he is saying "walk the fucking dogs!!" when he is actually saying " rise back from the depths!!"? Misheard lyrics :')

  38. Juan Carlos

    I love how old they are

    despisederic

    hahahaha! Cool

  39. Kyle Gibbs

    For some reason these break lyrics really get to me: stay clear or better yet play dead, famished with a taste for blood make it bleed unttil it floods.. seems brutal :)

    x _ x

    Gibbsatron ur so gay

  40. Jdrummer8925

    Why'd they split anyways? So glad these guys are back man

  41. Cole Jordan

    Despised came back with a vengeance, went for Deathcore's jugular like a BEAST and proved that they're still the apex predator in their genre. Killer song. Killer album.

  42. tristananvilcaster

    I LOVE THIS

  43. Will Dunn

    still smashing it!

  44. GGTTHveteran86

    I knew they would be back!! #GRIND

  45. Kevin Krispin

    o fuckin k

  46. Curtis C Coomber

    Is this 5FDP?

  47. Dan Stumpf

    Long live DI

  48. Fart Smucker

    WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME THEY WERE BACK TOGETHER. Christ,...been big time out of the loop

  49. DoriFord

    The beard doesn't fit much.

  50. ghosttoast

    The breakdown brings out my inner domestic violence.

    Horizon31

    Mørkskogg lmaoo makes me wanna clean my room with my fist

    jimmyjoemonkey II

    ghosttoast I feel bad for laughing at this given the off chance ur ass was serious. This is teh interwebs after all.

  51. Salin Lamen

    MMMMmmmm That's some good shit! Welcome back!

  52. Michael Sniderman

    this is how we do in Canada! we sit on the ice and scream!

  53. Dylan Imperi

    it seems like the lyrical content is less poetic in their new songs. which is cool cause I like straight forward stuff but I'm hoping the rest of the album has some more songs written like the stuff on previous records because thats part of what made the band what they were. definitely excited to see what they came up with. I like the new direction they took and how they kept a lot of the original style

  54. Byrd Main

    SO STOKED!!!!!

  55. Sadiki Green

    trying my best to wanna support this band. ..but...

    Byrd Main

    peace . out.

  56. BELFAST BRIGADE

    it's much better than OTB

  57. jay elizabeth

    It'd be cool to know the lyrics to this. Even though I know they sing some of their stuff in French.

  58. NecroSmokist

    They actually kick up the old-school Hardcore influence a bit for this album and a bunch of elitist retards lose their fucking minds. Go figure.

  59. soft punk

    Fuckin tight

  60. VLVT X

    i actually can feel the hardcore element in this band, unlike most of the deathcore bands

  61. Johnnie Marquez

    this sounds more like hardcore than deathcore to me

    Johnnie Marquez

    also, that last breakdown could have been so much better

  62. Elysia Starfield

    literally.. just jumped for glee.. hadn't even looked up this band since the last show .. SO HAPPY !! :D :D :D

  63. riptorx1

    siento un frio en la espalda cada vez que escucho este album. lo esperaba hace tiempo. estos chicos saben como hacer las cosas y dejar satisfechos a sus fans sobre todo para reivindicar el estilo death-core que tan acabado esta con tanta banda basura que hay por estos dias. Un buen death metal con toques Hardcore y grind! sin perder la esencia.

  64. A Shwise

    I'm just glad they still sound the same

  65. Darryl Venn

    I find myself having to restart this song again and again, despised icon really are the King's of what they do!!!!

  66. Tyrant

    Fuck this whole album is great! Fucking awesome!

  67. Confetti Deathblow

    yet another incredible comback album this year!!!!

  68. Nagelfar

    hm sounds nothing special to me. better listen to the new nails album.

    James Matthews

    To be fair, You Will Never Be One Of Us goes like a fucking freight train to the face.

    Nagelfar

    James Matthews indeed.

  69. tenofswords618

    DADCORE

    bnz012

    tenofswords618 makes me feel old. But then again. Wtf

  70. kaos

  71. Shannon Buchanan

    running riot motherfuckers

  72. Nellson Stout

    DESPISED ICON - "The Aftermath" (OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO)"

  80. Allen Taylor

    the guitar really cuts through the mix. im curious what kind of amp they are using.

    despisederic

    On this recording, a Fender 5150III with an Ibanez TS808HW pedal through a Mesa cab, using a shure SM57 microphone through a 1073 Neve preamp. All the basic stuff!

  81. Ebola Chan

    Came from Drachenlord:D

    COME TO ME

  82. Dr. Mantis Toboggan

    THANK YOU DESPISED ICON ! _0_

  95. Bearddis

    WHEEEEW these boys are back in top fucking form.

  96. KRIS A. TAHA

    this seems like this album so far should've came out between healing process and ills.
    kinda simple but I'm a dork when it comes to DI so I'm stoked regardless.

  97. Matt matt

    Hail Satan for reuniting my favorite band!

  98. Sean Gallagher

    Really hoping these are the more accessible songs from the album, definitely don't give me the same feeling they used to.

    Horizon31

    Fiscalvids yeah thats probably it
