x430n Recommended to all, don't be put down by crossover tag. Accidentally found band and gave it a listen, and I was absolutely blown away by album from start to finish.
Riffs and variety of songs took me by surprise. Just listen build up of "Who's Watching?" from clean intro to jaw-dropping trash riff. Not fan of vocals, but weirdly enough I don't mind vocals at all, blends very well with music.
It is so good I've ordered vinyl, and eager to hear what will be delivered next in future by 3000AD... Favorite track: Who's Watching?.

3000 A.D. 05:09
3000 A.D This is life on Earth, The year: 3000 A.D This is the fate of us and the shape of things to be Electric eyes and mercurial skies and a bounty of toxic dust It gets in your lungs, it’s like breathing fire but you breathe it for you must Watch as the people hide in their cities of debris Watch them try to shield themselves from the phantom powers that be Chaos reigns in the cities of Earth where the people have lost their way And underground is the city of FEAR where the people always pay (Storm coming - 3000 A.D) It doesn’t mean that much to me (The way it was) Just the path of history (Storm coming, future bound) It’s the decay of all we see That leads us on - 3000 A.D THEY are the keepers of truth, selling lies at every turn THEY are the angels of DEATH and they have come to watch it burn The hammer falls, the Messiah calls, has he come to save them all? No, it’s clear to me he is much too late, he has come to watch them fall (Storm coming - 3000 A.D) It doesn’t mean that much to me (The way it was) Just the path of history (Storm coming, future bound) It’s the decay of all we see That leads us on - 3000 A.D We built it up to let it go Will we make it? I don’t know! Could end up in Hell but at least you’re free That’s much more than you can say for me I’d rather be dead than living on Earth With toxic dust and MUTANT BIRTH The whole world’s coming, coming to an end We fucked it up and now here we are again…

Cells 03:22
Cells This is the end of the perfect creation On the back of the dearth of the nation Of the germs bred for war and for Hell Is your disease, which watched as civilisation fell We have arrived at this strange plateau And day by day you feel safe in what you know You have evolved, you are the best But this virus, it rests within your… Cells! Internal Invasion Cells! A deadly contagion Cells! Decaying from the inside What you’ve made is the death of you all Now you watch as the foundations fall Your creation - a patchwork of DEATH A new procession. Is this what you get? Now you may think you are the chosen one But you’ll be rotting like the beasts that you once shunned You’re not the centre of the universe Just the centre for a living, feeding… CURSE! Internal Invasion Cells! A deadly contagion Cells! Decaying from the inside This is the city of the plague Now tell them about the things you’ve made Those walls have become a tomb enclose around you like a concrete womb The end is coming IT’S SOMETHING Feel it slipping away… Like nothing! Right now! Builders of the civilisation Right now! Victims of the degeneration Right now! Human race - full devastation Right now! Amoeba inherits our station Someone say something! It’s coming Epoch of the human race… It’s going! Abandon all hope of salvation Microscopic annihilation LOOK OUT! Contamination Corpsification…

The Network 04:56
The Network There are things that you remember, there are places that you go A world that lies within the screen and dictates what you know Let THE NETWORK take you there, provide you with your dreams Fill you up with hope, fear and all the other things Step into THE VOID, cross into the zone As long as you tune in then you won’t have to be alone They tell you what to think, tell you what to say despite your rationality, willingly you OBEY The Network - Monopoly of the truth The Network - The cycle poisons you The Network - You’re hypnotised A nightmare coming true Abandon your resistance, injection of the meme They recreate the past, it’s all just as it seems “The future is a battle” That’s what The Network says Extracting what is black and white out from all the greys The Network - A triumph of democracy The Network - A war where no one bleeds The Network - it’s a world of hate Bursting through the screen Tomorrow - Tune in, your mind will be dead Tomorrow - Living inside of your head Tomorrow - You don’t believe what they say Tomorrow - Remember when THE NETWORK used to PAY The things that you remember, the places that you go The voices in your head say there’s a lot that you don’t know Now lay you down to sleep at night and maybe in your dreams You’ll find a world that you forgot where nothing’s as it seems The Network - Death throes of an industry The Network - Conceptual apostasy The Network - A potent dream Master provider of bankrupt ideologies

Who’s Watching? You live free through the day but tonight you are a ghost at play Shadows cast a net that safely swallows you And if you’ve got a secret, or if you’ve got nothing to hide It’s all the same and the game is won WHO’s been watching? THEY are watching you WHO’s been watching? They are watching WHO’s been watching? They are watching you They are watching, Now you RUN Alone in your dark apartment you live in a hazy world your dreams and schemes are safely locked away but if you’ve ever wondered about the chill creeping up your spine You’ve felt their eyes while they are watching you Who’s been watching? THEY are watching you Who’s been watching? They are watching Who’s been watching? They are watching you They are watching, Now you RUN Disembodied voices sing through the speakers they will ring CALLING for their brother soldiers… is this real or are you dreaming? One by one they come for you, they’ve got eyes all around you too For your crime you must admit and for your soul it’s time to quit You wake from the grip of slumber, a nightmare looming in a mess of black Outside that world just seems so FAR away And with their footsteps coming, the ghost of freedom RUNNING You find too late that they are here to stay Who’s been watching? THEY are watching you Who’s been watching? They are watching Who’s been watching? They are watching you They are watching, Now you RUN

These Fires 03:59
These Fires These fires, these Fires, these skies of red That BURN throughout the years Remember, remember those skies of blue that since have disappeared Onward wasteland, whither away Bring up the tide, bring on DECAY… The dead, the dead, so many there Lay down upon the Earth An endless desert yet still no spring No chance for our rebirth Onward wasteland, whither away Bring up the tide, bring on decay I saw the sky burn up I saw the ship go down So few are we that are left So few are we here now The sun, the sun, it burns so bright through all the atmosphere My eyes, my eyes it does ignite with an image so unclear Onward wasteland, whither away Bring up the tide, bring on decay Rabble waves and nowhere to run IT HAS BEGUN These fires burn bright stem out into a river of light Heat rising, sun climbing Then gives way to an ocean of night I saw the sky turn red I watched the mountains fall I saw the EARTH decay These fires will burn us all

The World We Knew Let go, it surrounds you now It’s omnipresence is a foregone vow They know that they control your mind You are their creation Do what they want, do what they say Do what you must for comes the day When all that you know will be left in the rubble (Nobody wants to believe it) (Only the DAMNED could conceive it) They speak, you understand You are unique in their peculiar land How quick did the whole thing fall? One Generation Nowhere to go, NOTHING to do No-one to trust, it’s curtains for you Or they’ll keep you alive for a season in hell The world that we knew has now GONE forever Awake from the ether to your modern disease Endlessly waiting in expectation For death to blow in with the Breeze Let them go - Now they are just memories Let them GO - Don’t wrestle with your memories Time will show - Time forgets everything This is it, new days of the empire Let them go - They bury the dead now Let them go - They’re all in your head now Time will show - When everything’s said now This is it, new DAYS OF THE EMPIRE The world we knew is gone forever You WAKE from the ether to your modern disease Endlessly waiting in expectation For death to blow in with the Breeze

Journeys 07:17
Journeys We CROSS The Void through radiation fields Home far behind us, its fate already sealed Traverse the stars, cataloguing worlds To find a new haven for MAN Future bound the quest began Searching, Waiting, Hoping Your world will soon be ours We endeavour to deprive Always searching the skies The voyage begins Take a step and watch your mind spin One world, one hope All dangling from a single rope Take a leap towards the burning light Armageddon comes pray that it will be alright You’re never more ALONE than when you are so far from home We leave behind us our path of destruction Our race has spread, We’re living on the RUN We journey far and we journey deep Still searching for the source of life Water, Air, Warmth and Light Gives birth far from the Earth We endeavour to deprive Always searching the skies The voyage begins Take a step and watch your mind spin One world, one hope All dangling from a single rope Take a leap towards the burning light You better pray that it will be alright You’re never more alone than when you are so far from home And now we navigate, our course is set in stone (We endeavour to deprive) Bring the future into being, cast off for the UNKOWN (Always searching, Alone) Our DESTINATION far from all we know Our evolution left all things below An old world dies, A new one in our sights Terraform, the Earth reborn But you can't outrun all that you’ve done We cross the Void
