"LUNGS - An assault of bare bones low-end brutality interrupted by moments of syrupy sweet emotional drivel."
Robert - Maximum Rock and Roll

“These sounds are strange... They are strongly impregnated an introspection and a solitude, the trance and hypnotic calls which are intermittent by the fury and a hysterical despair...”
Gnom - Metal Centre

“Lungs does leave me wanting to hear more, which is always a good thing. Hopefully, I will not have to long to wait.”
Bob - Scene Point Blank

“ Hailing from Minnesota, Lungs are a sludgy, down tempo, post rock/doom band that would fit nicely on Halo of Flies Records, next to a band like Northless.”
E. Thomas - Teeth of the Divine

Track Name: Call to the Giants
Bound by Earth, carved in stone
Serpent tongues speak the words
Heed our call and live once more
Guide us through this sea of worlds
Awaken now, the spell be set
Blood-smoke bellows, fill thy chests
Break free of the mountain womb
Gather your strength, vehemence soon
The weak genuflect in houses of prayer
Their alters speak the name of another
Their steeples now your abacus of pain
One by one their souls entwain
Your elephantine hide meets futile throws
Whilst tornadic death your breath doth blow
Track Name: Sermon on the Mount
He left for the mountains today
Consumed with grief
He'll make it go away
He will
Abandoned all he loves
all he hates
Ascended to the cliffs
where he waits
He's still
He will

And on his way down
He reaches to the clouds
Praying they would cry for him
And the whistling wind tells him goodbye
As the sun breaks through the sky
The rocks below wait with a grin
Track Name: Dust
She is everywhere
In the skeletal trees
The blossomed bones
The salted silt

She remains in the air
It's hard to breathe

Heaving coughs of dust
The skin, electrified
Again she appears
Black is the sky

Showered in suffocation
She opens the eyes
Unwraps the skin
Revealing our future
Erased between Heaven and Earth
Track Name: Alluvium
Such haste makes a man grow weak
Deaths like these, the incipit
They turn and stop as they wait to speak
Words choked away

Rain again
Such a futile attempt to disturb
Steadfast the torrent
They dive for answers

The sordid sand shows its breath
With little left unsung
The dying tides of clouds retreat
As heaven turns

Tallow feeds the wick again
The hungry tinder shakes
The lies of time are sheep again
As the Earthen Bard awakes
Track Name: Wintress
So Cold
She slips past wooden seams
As her icy breath blows across the plain

Her frigid fingers caress the field
Calling earth to sleep
Mankind versus winter
Encapsulated in glass

The rest have been put to bed
Her test we'll fail
She answers no questions
No response to pleading shivers

Frozen to pieces
Shattered by life
She is relentless
Track Name: Never the Sun
Sheathed in this cave
Peel the parchment from these bones
Taken from warmth
Abandoned in darkness
Never a shadow
Never the sun
Inseminated anomaly
Fed from the floor
Fermented in filth
Broken in faith
Never a shadow
Never the sun
Track Name: Aegrus
Fever breathes the sickness in
Exhaled chills as death begins
Heart valves race as pressure goes
The mind's eye dims as darkness grows
Dry these veins
Vessels grip
Bleed this pain
Future stripped
Death brings you down to your knees
Pulse slowing as the body pleas
Muscles constrict, senses stop
Holding on to every drop
