Scumbag If you can remember a band from the '90s called Paw you'll have a good place to start in imagining what The Preachers' sound is about. Grungey, gritty with raw vocals that convey attitude. Only crank up the guitars and gutsiness to something more akin to metal than grunge! Simple but effective hard rock to hook you in and keep you listening!

The Preachers Gothenburg, Sweden

THE PREACHERS began as a revolt in 1996 towards what the members used to do before. From a moaning and grumpy industrial metal/goth rock constellation from 1991 to an angry and uprising noise metal combo.

Track Name: Submissive
I think it is time to choose sides
in this mental carousel
How would you like to be?
As good, as bad or as stupid as me?

Where is your will, where is your wont,
when is the time to say don't?

Submissive, subversive

I'd let you think if I thought you could,
But I'm as crammed up as you
Denied from yourself, denounced in itself
It's not by volition you say no

Could say no, could say go, could say no, could say…
Track Name: The Electric Monk
The electric monk was on his own
He thought the world was his alone
He thought the sky was green,
the sun was black
and that there was one thing humans lacked,
which was his task in life

Hurt, I fucking hurt

Unfruitful dreaming
Fed up with belief
Man's habit to discard the abstract
unveils a fetish of grief

Free the memory
We're lost anyway
Free the memory on us all
Reclaiming our faith

Put your electric monks down
They're what you made
and after getting so afraid
No faith in yourself or in your friend
Rather mislay it 'til the end
It has run amok since then
Track Name: The Prey And The Poacher
Nothing left to sing about
Nothing left to say
Nothing more to figure out
And no more games to play

One time I knew what was wrong
but that one time has gone
Should've known it all along

My name is just a simple word
Not likely to deter
as the thing you just have heard

You're the prey and I am the poacher
You're the prey and I am the poacher
You're insane and I'm the almoner for you
You're the prey and I am the poacher

Do I practice what I preach?
What's within range or out of reach?
For you I ransack heaven and hell
Destined to live to tell

Nightmares haunts me in deep
Trying to steal my sleep
but find before you keep

I could take any girl I meet
have bllod upon the sheets
and the world beneath my feet

I breed on your lack of faith
Strung out on infiltration
Sweep your minds like a wraith
I am the god of indoctrination

Nothing left to sing about
Nothing left to say
No need to scream and shout
Nowhere left to cause dismay

Ok, I know there is much more
More than ever before
Whole thing's rotten to the core

So sad, too tired to have a go
But I couldn't let it show
So I'll do it all tomorrow
