Maxime thumbnail
Maxime Grooving Death'n'Roll with amazing solos and melodies.
Hooks that get stuck in your head for days in a row and a singer that's somewhere between Max Cavalera and Barney Greenway.
What's not to love about this?
One of the absolute best Belgian releases of 2020! Favorite track: Mass Lobotomy.

I'm a Wreck 03:11
Chaos! Madness! Smoke in the darkness Fire is melting my face It’s beating fast It’s pumping hard A ritual to gather the insane It’s raining bullets Reminders of all my mistakes And I won’t do it I’m enemy of all that is fake Like you Cause I’m a wreck I’m a fucking wreck And I know I will never change Your life 9-to-5 It won’t be my drive Cause everything looks the same You play the routine I play the roulette I don’t care if I loose the bet The love and hate I lost them along the way And I won’t even try To give what you expect from me Never Don’t wanna live like a fugitive Don’t wanna live like a slave Don’t wanna live like a prisoner Go fuck yourself I grew up as a headbanger With venom in my blood I’m always in for destruction And good old rock and roll I am up for another round And it’s 1, 2, 3, 4… It’s never enough I’m coming for more Cause I’m a wreck I’m a fucking wreck And I know I will never change I will always remain untamed!

Hitman 02:48
My shadow calls out your name I’m drowning in adrenaline Like a hungry beast pace back and forth Behind his rusty cage door Now could be the last goodbye Now could be the final kiss As I enter the night Cause I’m the hitman now I’m like a ghost wandering the halls The cold silhouette I’m like a slave to the flesh and the devil’s grin My brain is hungover and dead Now could be the last goodbye Now could be the final kiss As I enter the night Cause I’m the hitman now Cause I’m the hitman now And I do it for you I have your name in my list Lurking from behind the curtains The clown sharpens his knife I get a standing ovation From fleshless hands I say now could be the last goodbye Now could be the final kiss As I enter the night for you Cause I’m the hitman now Cause I’m the hitman now The only one

They are all dead They are all dead Walk with the wise And become the wise For a companion of fools brings doom It’s just a waste of time They are all dead They are all dead The scent of memories They fuel my mind Good times I once enjoyed In blissful ignorance Blessed are the ones who mourn The rotten in the depths The perished flesh and bone Forever laid to rest They are all dead They are all dead Dead! The Dead will walk and cast the spell The marionettes of the unknown force They are all dead They are all dead
4.
Broken man in an endless wasteland Marching towards an horizon Where the sun no longer rises No longer rises The horrors of human life Murder and destruction Transported to your living rooms Hiding within the walls Somebody you love Glued to the screen Somebody you hate Mass lobotomy As you go deeper and deeper Into the machine They have no power of action They just repeat what they hear It goes on and on and on and on Until it becomes the truth And then it’s right and wrong and right and wrong And they become their tool Somebody you love Glued to the screen Somebody you hate Mass lobotomy It’s just a talking head to bring the message through It drains your brain until there’s nothing left of you Somebody you love Glued to the screen Somebody you hate Mass lobotomy Don’t let them eat your brain No!

Devil Inside 02:24
Searching for aces Left in my sleeve Nothing to lose but illusions Blind and fucked up Living is dying And in between there’s pain The devil inside Like a parasite The devil inside Controlling your mind Live life on the far side This is were the picture fits Put your mind into danger Take it or leave it Living is dying And there’s only pain Devil inside Devil inside Turning the dove into raven Innocence is not worth saving Not worth saving Marching powder is your commander It’s all you see all you want All that comes out from your tongue The devil inside The devil inside The devil inside Like a parasite
6.
Light my path with burning bridges Mind inhabitant Intruder of souls Dictating my actions Witness of my fate Man of steel The heart of stone In the mist of guilt Guided by the voice Soul redemption Mama, I’m coming home In the claws of panic You can have it all It runs in your blood It’s written in stone Written in stone Away from the treason Follow no reason Like a cast away The places I’ve been The cities I’ve seen You could not believe All the grief, disbelieve Now is part of the past And it fills my soul To give you this song In the mist of guilt Guided by the voice Soul redemption Mama, I’m coming home In the claws of panic You can have it all It runs in your blood It’s written in stone Written in stone

Call me a drifter Call me a runner Flying like a bullet from a gun Hell yeah maybe I’m a little insane You didn’t come to play? Stay outta my way I’m the difference Between real and fake So if you wanna roll with me I’ll make you see what it’s like to be real Recognizing no authority It’s one of those days Got to get away Think you can keep up fucker? Better buckle up We’re gonna change who we are Tonight at the bar Pound for pound Round after round Can you handle it? Are you ready for this? It’s gonna be tough So hold on tight Are you ready to go this far? No, I don’t think you are It’s gonna be one hell of a ride It’s one of those days Got to get away Pound for pound Round after round Think you can keep up fucker? Better buckle up Pound for pound Round after round It’s one of those days Got to get away Pound for pound Round after round We’re gonna change who we are Tonight at the bar Pound for pound Round after round It’s one of those days Here we go again Pound for pound Round after round

I’m on the loose and I seek revenge I’m planning your death Hunting season is open I got a fistful of diamonds Burning right in my hand I’m on the road to damnation I’m coming back from the dead Bitter sweet emotion Go on entice me Speeding down trough the lanes Feeding my rage I got a fistful of diamonds Burning right in my hand I am honored to apologies And I got you right now Part of me becomes animal I’m thirsty for blood Bitter sweet emotion Go on entice me Speeding down trough the lanes Feeding my rage I got a fistful of diamonds Burning right in my hand I give you evil for evil I trade some blood for blood You think you could get away I’m back from the dead I know you recognize every scar I see your eyes are in guilt Part of me becomes animal I’m in for the kill With a fistful of diamonds Fistful of rage I got a fistful of diamonds Burning right in my hand
9.
My hands designed as a cradle for sin They welcome chaos while the city sleeps When poison floods in my every vain My soul ignites and invokes it’s name Dark clouds arise I rush into the night Wide open eyes Crossing like a robot The corridors of death When your no longer human You can’t be afraid of fate The market of temptation The expensive misery I’m looking for redemption in the spirit of the streets Hallucinations and neon lights Cold nest of demons Unholy Paradise My world turns upside down Tomorrow’s far away I call the dark messiah To save me from myself Dark clouds arise I rush into the night Wide open eyes Crossing like a robot The corridors of death When your no longer human You can’t be afraid of fate The market of temptation The expensive misery I’m looking for redemption in the spirit of the streets
10.
Counting the dead They are left as a trail A callous reminder A witness of anger Supposed to be a part of me It’s my main attraction A chain reaction Morbid ecstacy The primitive I know you know it’s my only emotion Self destruction And who are you If you cannot make it you cannot claim it What you can’t understand Is that all is lost When there’s nothing left Inside of your heart Counting the dead They are left as a trail And now it’s one of your kind Your mother or child And now it hurts to be on the wrong side Bleeding fast Holy dust die in the streets Is this your wet dream? I know that now you’re regretful And fucking hateful Marked the cards in the deck So you’re out of the game All my patience is dead It’s time for revenge What you can’t understand Is that all is lost When there’s nothing left Inside of your heart That’s it Drenching in blood Blood of the innocent Now that it’s done Were are you? Living like a ghost Struggling from the source Hiding in a pit alone with your thoughts No repent for your actions A chain reaction Counting the dead One by one The change you create With your hate
11.
Walking high wire Above normal life Y’all think we won’t make it Through the night On a speeding train Not looking back As we travel Down the track Facing the demons Running by our side Like rebels on the run Loading up the six gun Think you know what’s crazy? You ain’t seen nothing yet It won’t last forever Cause it never does And it never will No stop till dawn Just started getting down Do you hear the sound? It’s a sing along rhyme Wanna see me double fist it? Blind and wasted? Then come on Cause you know It won’t last forever Cause it never does And it never will Noooooo! I see an empty hand Better grab a drink That’s the way we go out here That’s the way we drawn the tears Think we lost our minds? It happens from time to time You won’t find a pack like this around Raise your fist to the hound It won’t last forever Cause it never does And it never will

Last Breath 03:01
One more sinner to plague the world Picking at the stitches that hold back Heart beating grim tunes Sworn words branded Into flesh Into flesh Last breath Last breath Traveling through realms of endless pain The line is thin between man and beast His body’s hollow His fate is sealed His soul is job for no priest This journey ends with death one day Feel the chains pulling down There is a place in hell reserved Will you brave the flames The dog is waiting For your infected soul Its the reckoning day Burning fever boiling As you gasp for your last breath Last breath Do you hear me Last breath I want your Last breath C’mon The dog is waiting For your infected soul It’s the reckoning day Burning fever boiling As you gasp for your last breath Last breath Do you hear me Last breath I want your Last breath C’mon Who will save your soul?

To The Grave 04:17
In mourning chants My quest remains A passenger of times A lonely wolf In secret worlds Marauding down below Blurred inaction Cold and barren As she cries my name And I fade to black While time stands still In the deep of the night Where the hunter meets the prey The massive shadow of repent Leads the way To the grave Glowing shadows Please the mad ones And grow out of me Pull me under To the darkness Cause it’s been too long In the deep of the night Where the hunter meets the prey The massive shadow of repent Leads the way To the grave When all love is dust And the gain is pain It’s one way road To the grave Once again
