With X’ed up hands and laddered laces We pull our hoods over our faces CULTURE SHOCK! CULTURE SHOCK! We walk the streets, nowhere to go No friend of mine will live the norm CULTURE SHOCK! CULTURE SHOCK! You pity me for time I’ve spent but the fun you have, I’ll never get I’ll wrap my fingers around your neck and I’ll hold that smoke down in your chest
Lone Wolves 01:03
The pack is here so you’re going to have to shut your mouth Clench your teeth or we’re going to fucking knock them out THE PACK IS SMALL BUT THE BITE IS HARD! You sit behind a wall of glowing libel text But wolves smell fear so you are going to be next THE PACK IS SMALL BUT THE BITE IS HARD! WE’RE AT YOUR DOOR! We’re hearing your words and there is no doubt That the wolfpack is coming so you better watch out
Chainbreaker 00:45
Look me in the eye, say it to my face You want to see this go away? You’re going to have to wait You aint got the gall to watch me fucking fall And when our friends all see my back, they’re going to come to call I was a weak link under too much pressure You were a traitor, the chain is broken
Days as dark as fucking nights, all to hide your fucking right And when you finally see some light, they’ve come to take your fucking life STARK RAVING MAD! STARK RAVING MAD! Like a king on his throne Thought you could uphold your honor, now you beg just like a coward On your knees crying out please, but justice carries too much power STRAK RAVING MAD! STARK RAVING MAD! Like a fucking child You wanted forgiveness? What did you expect? Spoiled fuck
Nothing 01:56
You plea for brotherhood and push us in a corner We fight back. You want to be the same? We’ll always be the other We’ll never be the same, you’ll never matter YOU AND I ARE NOTHING! You act like a friend but you don’t fucking know me I’m sick of your talk, I’m not your fucking family We’ll never be the same, you’ll never matter YOU AND I ARE NOTHING! And we never were It’s not about unity, it’s not about you and me It’s all about me and nobody else You talk like we’re friends, your talk never ends Fuck you, you’re my enemy
You want to fuck with us because you’ve got strength in numbers But when we are done feeding you’ll be fucking bleeding Without all your friends you’re just a fucking kitten We won’t see you again until we are fucking shitting You build up an army to run this town NO MORE! You build yourself up while you tear us down NO MORE! Look into my eyes you’ll see there’s fucking nothing behind the glass We’re killing. No feelings. Steam is pouring out from a torn open throat and as you fall Your blood is spilling You build up an army to run this town NO MORE! You build yourself up while you tear us down NO MORE! You aren’t so hard without your jacket I see your fucking face and I just live to attack it The alpha males build up their crews The betas are coming and we’re closing in on you No alphas are leading in this fucking pack The betas are hungry, you better watch your back
Always want to drink, always want to smoke I’ll take that fucking pipe and shove it down your throat NOT MY BRAVE NEW WORLD! NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY! Always want to feed, always want to breed Your pleasures become what you primally need NOT MY BRAVE NEW WORLD! NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY! Nothing to say, nothing to gain Nothing but hope that it’ll quiet your brain You see a king, I see a crown The world wants to get high, I’ll bring it back down
You're Next 00:43
You don’t fucking scare me with useless empty threats WE’RE FED UP! YOU CAN’T STOP US! I’ve seen bigger than you before who stood blocking my path Every one’s been broken, you’re fucking next The pack will never bow their heads to fucking jocks in denim vests Who spew void words and rhetoric to an empty room of their closest friends WE’RE FED UP! YOU CAN’T STOP US!
Stuck 01:28
You wake up and look around You cannot recognize this thing that we found You can’t face the rising tide Ten fucking years came and passed you by HEAD STUCK IN THE DIRT! You tried to save your wasted pride But we saw through you, saw through your lies HEAD STUCK IN THE DIRT! See our bands, you laugh Think we’re stuck in the past Get confused, strike back But never reach the pack You see us you get culture shock
Brave tongued warrior, you spit at us all We find you a coward, with your back to the wall You think we’re all the same ALL THE SAME! Mindless monsters obsessed with pain We’ll end all the others because we’re all the same ALL THE SAME! Tell all your stories, lay all your blame We’ll live up to them, we don’t need any change We’ll ruin your good time we won’t play your games We’ll rip out your throat if it’s saying our names YOU THINK WE’RE ALL THE SAME!


Urban life promises many rewards—lies that foster complacency and addiction. In the cities where these hotbeds fester, we observe in real time how societies fail. After a period of crisis, horrifying acts are normalized. Drugs become one's identity, hype is power, ego is abuse.

For the lone wolves and free thinkers disgusted by the mainstream echo chamber, they scorn the idea of getting along with self-proclaimed role models and their bland, conventional "fun." CULTURE SHOCK is a fist in the teeth of the Good Life, with an outrageous vendetta to take out the entitled parasites ruining the world.

CULTURE SHOCK's debut is an unapologetic and relentless pummel of US hardcore. Each of these 10 anthems delivers a feral intensity that we've come to expect from the Denver scene. Recorded on analog tape in Denver, Colorado and mixed and mastered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios, maniacal vocalist Geoff D. sums it up it best when he proclaims "The Pack is small, but the bite is hard!"
