"As long as the general population is passive, apathetic,and diverted to consumerism or hatred of the vulnerable, then the powerful can do as they please, and those who survive will be left to contemplate the outcome." - Noam Chomsky

about

Culled Edmonton, Alberta

Culled started in early 2017 with the intention of embracing the contrast of slow crushing sludge and doom riffs with the blistering speed and chaos of grindcore ripe with messages of peace, and love that implore the need for empathy in today's unpredictable and unstable political climate.
Mathy, cacophonous and angular, Culled sound like the pangs of the industrial complex working overtime.

Track Name: Divide to Conquer
Blind in the dark. Bring order control the flock 
Lead another one, breed another one… Lies!
Dominate their simple lives
Lines in the sand. Gorge themselves from their hands
Feed another one seed another one... Lies!
Repeating all of their lines

Like them! Hate them! Fight them! We’ll win!
There will be no compromise!!!

Filled with pride there will be no compromise!
You decide on which side you’ll fall in line
Filled with pride there will be no compromise
World decline. Refusing to see through the lies

Our world is in total decline!

Take a side, repeat all the lines
World decline. These are the final times
Take a side, repeating all the lines
When there is no compromise
These lies destroy our lives

These are the final times

Take heed in what they say. Learn from our yesterdays
It’s time to make a stand. Their world is in our hands!
Track Name: Such Benevolent Filth
Righteousness fuels your hatred
Religion frees the guilt
Worship the god of certainty
Tailored to fit your bank account
Omnipotent is your world view
Hide beyond walls of wealth
Outsiders are not welcome
Unless they obey your every will

Brainwashed and trained to serve your every will

Your greed knows no borders
The wars have primed the wells
Suck dry the pure resources
Leave behind a rotting shell
Ignore the pen of history
Despite the hand it’s held
The uprising is preventable
As is your fucking nuclear hell

Such benevolent filth!
Filth!!!
Such benevolent filth!
Track Name: False Sense of Supremacy
Disconnected from reason
Concerned just for themselves
Unsympathetic position
Without even a thought on how it impacts

Short sighted bigotry the blindfold is tied
Corrupted security blanket of lies

No care for the wake behind or the created divide
Enclose the circle of sympathy. No empathy for all outside

Obsessed with their security
Another brick in the wall
Obscenity of purity
Just pure contempt for all left beyond

Short sighted bigotry the blindfold is tied
Corrupted security blanket of lies

An ignorant legacy is all the world will recall
Bloated superiority will be exposed when the shadow begins to fall

False sense of supremacy

No! No land can be sterilized
No! No words will bring compromise
No! No willingness to empathize
No! No way to live when you’re paralyzed
Track Name: Scorn
Lies! No innocence is dying
Pride! The catalyst dividing
Blind devotion to a faith that breeds such vermin
Mice recoil when the sanctum has been lifted. Run!

Run! Cower!
Into your straw lined hole
Devour! Consume is all you know
Shallow! this life that you…

Tie the blindfold an ignorance so inviting
Die and suffer in wars that are not worth fighting
Lines are drawn the spoils are divided
Crimes ignored the unceasing reprisal. Why?!

Thin the herd, fail to learn from our past
Fail to learn, thin the herd. Wars are cast
Thin the herd, fail to learn. World collapse

Run! Cower!
Into your straw lined hole
Devour! Consume is all you know
Shallow! This life that you sow

Lies! No innocence is dying
Pride! The catalyst dividing
Blind devotion to a faith that breeds such vermin
Mice recoil when the sanctum has been lifted. Run!

Your blind devotion and
the ignorance that binds you,
manifests my scorn
Track Name: Contagion
Your fear is a fallacy! Embrace reality
Oppose the governing state in power to manipulate
Stand tall and wave the flag. As wars fill body bags
Don’t question what’s at hand put faith in their command. No!

Hatred’s a cancer! Scapegoat the answer
A nationalistic pride with outrage that’s designed
Metastasizing! Violent uprising
Controlled by what you hear
Fueled by all your fears. No!

Your pride is suffocating
Ignorance advocating
Silence the voice of reason and stay in line!
Our world disintegrating
Stockpiles intimidating
Free thought is the contagion threatening their power!

Denial, blame and rage
The cards are in play
Concerned pacifists learn
Patriotic loyalists turn
Another hopeless victim of identitarianism
Enraged lives have been trained
It’s easy when the mind’s enslaved

Resist the anarchy of this mentality
Empathy and love the answer
In a world of pain and anger. Rise!

Hatred’s a cancer! Scapegoat the answer
A nationalistic pride with outrage that’s designed
Metastasizing! Violent uprising
Controlled by what you hear
Fueled by all your fears

Fucking rise!
It’s time to rise above all the fucking lies!!!
