about

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!"

Track Name: Culture Shock
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
Track Name: Lone Wolves
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
Track Name: Chainbreaker
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
Track Name: Stark Raving Mad
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
Track Name: Nothing
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
Track Name: Behind the Glass
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
Track Name: Brave New World
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
Track Name: You're Next
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!
Track Name: Stuck
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
Track Name: Won't Play Your Games
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!
