“One of Los Angeles’ weirdest, most intriguing and most talented bands... if you’re still uninitiated, it’s about time you familiarize yourselves with the fire and fury of Grand Lord High Master, because their highly experimental yet unabatedly violent blend of hardcore punk, thrash and sludge is sure to grab you by the throat and drag you face down.” - Metal Assault

"Think Converge by way of High on Fire or Every Time I Die with a mad case of mange." - Heavy Blog is Heavy

"Killer riffs, hellish drumming, and suitably abrasive sludge vocals of the nightmarish kind." - Destroy / / Exist

You pretty little starshines have no idea what’s coming. Fuck trends. Fuck the ‘scene’. Get ready for some real rock and fucking roll. Abrasive and raw, but also nuanced and supremely technical, Grand Lord High Master come flying out of the gates with their debut album, pummeling listeners with chainsaw guitar riffs until just the right moment when they lull you into a false sense of safety. Fresh from performances at completely disparate events like Knotfest and Echo Park Rising, you just never know what to expect from this SoCal four-piece. Stay alert, my friends.

Track Name: MOTHERS
take off to hills unhollowed we can't know where to go shake off the pavement breaking every inch of the golden coast we got your burning oil raised up to the third epode we got your brand of heartache highways turned down to road all gone but a heated air all gone not a mother or child we got your eyes rolling we got your shattered mind we got your white trees all lined up in a row we got your heat racing everyone crying for their mothers lips are breaking and the canyon crest start rolling can you even believe it believe that its over baby get out occam's razor a close shave i could have kept them there if i wanted to survive those lots are building perfect all broke down on the right the east came up in all ways strange start to a modern life we got your brand of heartache we got no where to go expend the real and mundane everyone crying for their mothers
Track Name: SLUDGE
woke up to the fowlest smell still beating heart ran out of my house and found everything turned to shit the ground gave to a massive swell i felt my body melting cried to my neighbors please mow my lawn feed my dog it's in the walls it's unspoken we were wild now we're broke in poured forth a pestilent flood washed over the city absorbing everything you're all in me the garbage heap rose through the acrid sky to the tallest building crumbling i hear a plea sell my shares the end is near it's in the walls it's unspoken we were wild now we're broke in climbed up to the top of the shit heap feculence in its master form reign down over everything you're all in me you're all neck deep
Track Name: THRASH
white knuckles grip the wheel seats are soaked teeth grind grab the skull peel the skin dead end ahead left behind get to the car the bloog and the lines get to the car fire burns in my veins get to the car and ride the asphalt a horrowing grave for us demons sell your soul to pay the toll red streaks on the black top pistons smoke gears grind running targets on the sidewalk red lights end of the line ride of fucking die
Track Name: STAR SHOOTER
left the world in a capsule in a moonless night alien dressed human with both their eyes said 'please don't leave us' hey you'll be alright couldn't bear the feeling sleeping through our lives if you could only see the world as i such a thrill to spend it so high if you ever make it on your own in empty space don't feel alone we feel it got guitar and bass on overload a far out track to beam back home a billion lights start flashing into my eyes hailed the starman's greeting then came to life appeared that same evening saw the world alive that lawman still giving beatings still don't know why if you could only see we'd dance into the stars and when we pass by we'll soar high if you ever make it on your own in empty space you're all alone we feel it got guitar and bass in overload a far our track to beam back home you ever feel you're not at home just climb aboard and we'll get gone we fell to the music surrender now that we're on our own crazy worlds to live forever he took us there now the world seems larger since you said goodbye hear the sound much clearer fills the starlit sky we know you're still up there that blinding light just give a sign that we're alright and if you could only reach the center of it all we'd find a black star burning so bright
Track Name: DUPLICITY
red hair dreaming 45 she's there he's there everything's alive the trees have overgrown out to the sea there's 2 sleeping there the orange and the red burning the skyline it's a blood red rose on the ivory keys the blue outside the window wake up wake up wake up singing serving 53 born there died there was never free the city's bursting glow a milky haze there's 2 seated there the orange and the red burning the sky line it's a place you know that you have never been a navy ocean an ivory tower when the flash explodes marks the final scene two white shadows on the wall is this the end or the start of a pause left on repeat for the next to know breaking the code as a way to say hi to the love that you put on hold the trees have overgrown the cityscapes there's 2 buried there
