Black is the new and third single from Wax Mekanix and from the album Mobocracy
HALF OF YOU THINK YOU ARE ANGELS
THE OTHER HALF THINK YOU ARE DEVILS
WHICH ONE ARE YOU?
WELCOME TO THE EVENT HORIZON
CHTHONIC AND ONYX. OSIRIS AWAITS
ALL MISANTHROPIC IRISES DILATE
THE IRONY OF HISTORY’S TWIST
NOT EVEN THE RIGHTEOUS RESIST
WHEN TEMPTATION BAITS THE SNARE
MERE MORTALS DON’T HAVE A PRAYER
BLACK. THE NEW WHITE
BLACK. COME SEE IT IN A NEW LIGHT
SHOCK AND AWE. THE LEAD DOG
A TAP IN THE ATTIC? DARK SIDE OF THE SUN
FRANTIC AND PANIC OVER SUPERSTITION
YOUR MYTH AND YOUR LEGEND HAUNT IN THE HAZE.
YOU CRAVE AND YOU COVET SHADOW THROWING SHADE
WHEN INTOXICATED BY SIN
AN ORDINARY SOUL JUST CAVES IN
THE, ELEVATED BY ELEGANCE,
PIOUS, JUST ACQUIESCE
THE BANISHED VANISH IN THIN AIR
THE THREAT OF SIEGE IS EVERYWHERE
WHEN GODS WEAPONIZE THE PITCH
NOT ONE HOLY MAN WILL BITCH
A COLD-BLOODED ZERO-SUM
I’LL KEEP YOU UNDER THEIR THUMB
An easy listen to Mobocracy here:
Waxim «Wax» Ulysses Mekanix is an American musician, songwriter, performer, producer, artist, and founding member of American cult rockers Nitro. Not to be confused with the Hollywood band. Wax’s vetted perspective and tested work can best be described as raw, bold, uncompromising, authentic, and disconcerting. Mobocracy is Wax Mekanix’s new release with Philadelphia based record label, Electric Talon Record. Mobocracy is a focused collection of strident, aggressive, snarling, howling songs that draws on Wax`s decades of experience and influences.
Wax states, «I crafted this record to be a strong statement about America’s current state of animosity and decay that features me on lead vocals, guitars, drums, and percussion throughout, as well as an array of talented guest musicians such as Brandon Yeagley and Chris Bishop of Crobot»
«History shows us that artists will not let this kind of tectonic shift in American life pass without comment. I’m just commenting now».
