Metal up your bones

I.M.NAIL ist eine deutsche Metalband aus Koblenz (RLP), die 2012 gegründet wurde. Der Bandname wurde in Anlehnung an ein medizinisches Produkt mit dem Namen Intramedullary Nail (dt. Marknagel) gewählt, das zur Fixierung von Frakturen ins Knocheninnere implantiert wird. I.M.NAIL komponiert Musik mit Tiefgang, die dem Hörer direkt ins Mark genagelt wird, um morschen Rückgrätern wieder Haltung zu verleihen, denn es ist immer an der Zeit, das Kreuz gerade zu machen!

tHiS Is TitANIUM

Wenn In-your-face Vocals zwischen Wut und Melancholie pendeln, um sich in ohrwurmartigen Refrains zu entladen, rhythmisch hämmerndes und sägendes Riffing sich mit melodischen Solopassagen abwechselt, während die Rhythmusgruppe sich pulsierend durch die Eingeweide der Hörer wühlt, dann ist eines klar: Diese musikalische Chimäre lässt sich nicht in Ketten aus rostigem Metal legen.  Sowohl puristisch als auch progressiv, traditionell und zeitgleich modern.

Das ist Titanium.

DaRK-dIRtY-DeviANT: S0NGs FOR A CLEaRER CoNSCIENCE

Und genau das ist die Klangkulisse, vor der sich Texte von den Licht- und Schattenseiten des Lebens kompromisslos durchs Ohr in die Seele fressen und mit schonungsloser Ehrlichkeit innere Dämonen enttarnen. Ein dreckiger Schlag ins Gesicht, ein düsteres Spiegelbild der Realität und wenn man sich darauf einlässt, eine Einladung zu einer anderen Perspektive.

Düster-dreckig-anders.

Darkness For Rent
Lyrics

Darkness For Rent

Come closer, Come on and show me your number.
Let me see what time it is. Could you stay a bit longer?

Wanna get in, gonna get in. Here’s a brand new day to play and stray.
Amuse yourself and just feel fine; till the day when you’re first in line.

God knows that prayers are a waste of time.
Think guardian angels light your way through the dark with their shine?
Your ghosts and demons are all locked in their shrines.
No god or satan comes for rescue this time!

And time’s running out – No credits left – Breathe in, breathe out.
Soul sale starts now.

I am the end of your road, I am the blade at your throat.
Here is no light in the end, There’s only darkness for rent.
For you there’s no place to hide, ‚cause I’ll be still by your side.
Knowledge of me drives you mad – I’m the beast under your bed.

The beast under your bed – The one that drives you mad.
The one that’s in your head – The one that makes you dead!

I switch your little light off…
An unavoidable business and the price is fixed! No trade, no discount.
The deal is done.

I am the end of your road, I am the blade at your throat.
Here is no light in the end, There’s only darkness for rent.
For you there’s no place to hide, ‚cause I’ll be still by your side.
Knowledge of me drives you mad – I am the beast under your bed.

New Born

I have seen what you’ve done!
Can’t you see what you’ve left behind? A burnt-out shell.
An unbearable sin that burns deep within I am dead!
Oh God I wish I was dead, but still I roam urban nights.
On ways so old, dark and cold.
But the more I go, the more I lose touch with myself.

Who’s this? Who have I become?
Allow me to introduce myself: My name is yours.

Does anybody see my ego in here?
Naked – between these strangers there’s fear.

Can’t you feel what you’ve done?
I can feel what you’ve done inside of me the realm of chaos marches in.
Lose control, lose my mind.
I’m running blind with anger – against these walls of sorrow

Walk like you, talk like you, No more need to introduce myself.
Cause my name is: yours.

Does anybody see my ego in here?
Vacant – through all these faces I stare.
The one I’ve found is not the one I’ve been searching for.
The one I was vanished within the blink of an eye.
A new born stranger in me.

I don’t even know your name;
I know that you’re to blame.
And you? Can’t you see the scorn in my face?
I cleanse this city from sin and disgrace.

Does anybody see my ego in here?
Leering – into all these faces I stare.
Does anybody see my ego in here?

A stranger is all that I’m now.
And there’s no turning back.

A Bitter Pill

When all the actors are dressed in silence.
And the stage has turned to ice.
When all is lost what you once loved;
Black clouds gather, darken your sky.

A silent scream – No echo!

Are you lonesome tonight?
The cold keeps you warm.

Adjust yourself in porn-star pose.
Take a self-shot, make your smile look sincere.
But objects in the mirror are
less attractive than they appear

A bitter pill to swallow

Are you lonesome tonight?
The cold keeps you warm.

Hell

Restless you‘re riding through the deserts of your sandblasted mind.
Find no way out, ‚cause abysmal ways are hard to ride.
Haunted by memories that are pushing you from side to side.
You’d better watch out…

On this edge you stand alone.
No helping hand that guides you.
Fathomless – desperate – Falling away from fate.

On the run – Get your gun – Pull the plug… out of this muck.
Because life is a rogue creeping death.
Start dying, stop wasting your breath.

Ride like the devil on your pale horse, there’s no turning back.
On a back so fragile from a billion strokes and painful rides.
Lay down this burden, a necessity to heal your mind.
Find your way out…

At the edge of sanity.
At the point of no return.
Standing tall – Facing tides – Hell is still here by your side.

Stand your ground.
Hell is still by your side.

Hyena Sunrise
Lyrics

Heartwire

I can’t wait till the night has come and the bells chime break out
From this slippery world with its well suited crowd
Through the neon nights I run to you, babe
Into your dungeon of love I try to escape
For a while…
I know this time, it won’t last
Just as long as I pay for my role in this farce
An immoral dark dream which is dressed in black lace
For the moment it´s (as) real like this wip in my face

So, hard please hard
And one by one
Beat out this shit
Right with your gun

Your hardbeat, your hardbeat
Baby, your goddamn’ hardbeat
I would run to the sun for
Your hardbeat, your hardbeat
Downright and pure, your hardbeat
Let me bleed, for my own need

In the end it is you, who keeps me alive by dark arts
Common bias for pain winds a wire round our hearts
In my case I would say: One man’s pain, same man’s pleasure
I would laugh if I could, but my gag´s at high pressure
So high…
I feel like I’m over the moon
All new scars on my skin are like balm for our kind
In a moment of fear I reflect this rogue gamble
While your stiletto heels pierce into my temple

Hard so hard
And deep down, darrn
Press out this shit
Right with your thorn

Your hardbeat, your hardbeat
Baby, your goddamn’ hardbeat
I would run to the sun for
Your hardbeat, your hardbeat
Downright and pure, your hardbeat
Let me bleed, for my own need

Your hardbeat, your hardbeat
Baby, your goddamn’ hardbeat
I would run to the sun for
Your hardbeat, your hardbeat
Downright and pure, your hardbeat
Let me bleed, for my own need

Narcissus Unleashed

When the curtain opens up,

It’s tool-using, status-seeking
Your gentle armor, you keep on polishing day by day and by day
Drinking from the fountain of youth

Trying to heal the wounds of decay
Immortality, fascination

Narcissistic Botox being
Driven by desire
Promises by experts in temptation
memberships that never expire

When the curtain opens up,
It’s tool-using, status-seeking
Your gentle armor, you keep on polishing day by day and by day
Drinking from the fountain of youth

Trying to heal the wounds of decay
Immortality, fascination

Narcissus unleashed, with intent to deceive

Narcissus unleashed, life is not what it seems
Narcissus unleashed, life shatters your dreams
and will not suit your needs

Social engineers burn the bridges to the boundaries of conduct
A new breed takes its shape

Narcissus unleashed, with intent to deceive
Narcissus unleashed, life is not what it seems
Narcissus unleashed, life shatters your dreams
and will not suit your needs

Vanity

A primal urge
When the outside fades
The inside is all that stays

Angel Amputee

You wear
Your halo like a crown
From your earthly throne
You spew your blasphemies
(King of liars)
Robed in foul deceit
Poisoned apple seeds you feed
Cock-fed in secrecy
Different kind of charity

Hear me
Speak my mind, words unkind, spoken in tongues
Blessed be the one who can hear it
Why
Don’t you give in?
Take off your serpent’s skin

You’ve disarmed angels
Nailed their wings to the cross
While weeping violins
Played songs of bitterness
(Angel amputee)
Now in castles of quicksand you hide
Chamber doors still unlocked at night
A different kind of charity
A different kind of slaughterhouse

Why
Don’t you give in?
Take off your serpent’s skin
Expose your soul and dance
Around your bones

As for me
You may bleed
A barrel blowjob might suit your needs
Now it’s you
On your knees
Ejaculate your soul

Your savior
Keeps on calling thee
Evacuation of your soul
A crimson tide
will wash the shame away
Set sail to meet your maker now
Just to keep you sane
Paint the walls with brain
Prepare to meet your maker now

As for me
You may bleed
A barrel blowjob might suit your needs
Now it’s you
On your knees
Ejaculate your soul

Under the Gun

Heads up!
Now the devil is your enemy
Your golden shot boy
under the gun, raise your destiny

Breathing hard
You can feel the air gettin’ thinner
Liar´s dice’s over
Think about… you won’t be the winner

All in – you know it´s pay off time
The jackpot is your life, you’d better doing fine

The dice’s cast
The dice’s cast

Under the gun
Under the gun
Under the gun
Under the gun
Under the gun – gun down the enemy
Under the gun – gun down the enemy
Under the gun – gun down the enemy is you, addicted creep you’ve
become
Shot!

Heads up!
Now the devil is your enemy
Your golden shot boy
under the gun, raise your destiny

Breathing hard
You can feel the air getting thinner
Liar´s dice’s over
Think about… you won’t be the winner

Showdown – will you rise again
Or the Wild Card for your life is running out

The dice’s cast
The dice’s cast

Hyena Sunrise

And without warning, all joy was fading out
We were born and raised together, swore we would fly forever,
the rebel flag to all our enemies,
but there was one thing we forgot, the effect on the memory.
And without warning, all joy was fading out

And you started to fly…

L.O.V.E. was tattooed on our fingers,
A symbolic chain that binds us
Another hyena sun is rising high
And it´s giggling about us

I marched all the way with you and just stood by like a flaggelant.
But there was nothing I could do, with the apocalypse at hand.
What has brought this doom upon us?
Hope and sheer desperation. Were we the ones forsaken?

And all hope flew by…

E.V.O.L. was tattooed on my fingers,
The Mark of Cain ‘s burning on me
Another hyena sun is rising high
And it´s grinning at me

Ridden with disease and poisoned,
what flowed freely beneath snakebites,
started running cold and black,
like an ever flowing stream, a dark narcotic dream.

Fear had never ruled our life, we were not afraid to die,
All things considered, I’m afraid , that was much more than just a lie.
With shackled hands and sewn lips, we clung to life with a death grip,
rusty nails driven through my hands and while my rebel blood leaked out

I watched you fly away…

E.V.O.L. was tattooed on my fingers,
The Mark of Cain etched in (my) flesh
Another hyena sun is rising high
And it´s laughing at me

A Tighter Love

I can’t stand
this passion (as) old as man
An obsession that never ends
Under the stimulus of hunger
A hunter is after you

You – so cute and sweet
Beyond resistance
I can´t stand this urge, that’s close to overcome
I indulge the inclination
Beyond the realms of sanity
You must be mine

Cause I love you
And I’m craving you
And I hold you
Tighter than your true love

Smell your fear
My precious don´t deny
This alliance between our minds
The knife in my hand is the baton
I´m the director of requiems

You – so scared, angst-ridden
The air is electric
The nerves are raw
Right! – I command and you obey
Left! – an invisible bond between us
Stab! Back-to-back I am the black
Down! – I bring you down

Cause I love you
And I’m craving you
And I hold you
Tighter than your true love

I strike,
Hold you tighter than your true love
And then
you get the privilege of hearing your
bones break
before the power of the embrace
causes…
causes your vains to explode

Cause I love you
And I’m craving you
And I hold you
Tighter than your true love
