about

Dead Earth Politics Austin, Texas

From the soul of the Austin metal scene, Dead Earth Politics is a blade that cuts like no other. Having been compared to the likes of Lamb of God, Iron Maiden, Pantera and other legends, this band strikes at many cores. In 2013 Dead Earth Politics was honored with the Austin Chronicle's "Best Metal Band of 2012" award. With this in heart, DEP continues to perfect their craft and make great art! ... more

Track Name: Redneck Dragonslayer
black skies are overcast
something darker approaches me
over the knoll feet press firmly
making their way, gnashing their teeth
i stand before you scarred and
ready to take on the coming day
against my chest i bear the crest
loyalty runs red in these veins

heed the crack in the sky - for its the harbinger of my name
read the folds in the water - the cresting tide will overtake your shore

muscles sore and wanting more
revenge is what keeps us alive
doing wrong against those who've wronged
embed by the evil that I imbibe
i stand above it beaten and bloody
the beast lay at my feet
with my soul i've paid toll
with this blood letting I am free

heed the crack in the sky - for its the harbinger of my name
read the folds in the water - the cresting tide will overtake your shore

my demons are slowly waking
my lich has arrived
my blade is profusely bleeding
your overthrow is nigh

muscles sore and wanting more
revenge is what keeps us alive
doing wrong against those who've wronged
embed by the evil that I imbibe
i stand above it beaten and bloody
the beast lay at my feet
with my soul i've paid toll
with this blood letting I am free

heed the crack in the sky - for its the harbinger of my name
read the folds in the water - your overthrow is nigh
Track Name: The Queen of Steel
tribute or death - they're all thats left for you
capitulate or bend your knee
peons and princes; all pay the price
subjugated harmony

blood and souls by the lady's hands
her dark will shall be done
her savage horde will rape the land
harvesting one by one

bones are cast for you
its written in the stars
the queen of steel has run you through
her spoils of war lay screaming
in the light of the crescent moon
the queen of steel has mastered you

in the gloaming she stands astride the land
dark mistress in all she surveys
for blood and empire
lust, love and malice
upon these things her bones are made

blood and soul by the lady's hands
her dark will shall be done
her savage horde will rape the land
harvesting one by one

bones are cast for you
its written in the stars
the queen of steel has run you through
her spoils of war lay screaming
in the light of the crescent moon
the queen of steel has mastered you
Track Name: Madness of the Wanderer
Across the wastes the sun purifies
Thoughts hone in on the prize
The astral wasteland - dune shaped princes
Moan my name and writhe
Blisters on my tongue aid me
I chew through the pain to find the words
Pharaohs of before stand watch as I
Defile the world of waking man

A man of empty face gazes
I force the scars to bleed again
A crone of many children cackles
I embrace this madness

Egyptian sky is in my head
Leading my hand its marks
Guttural songs and harmonies praise
From the belly of the cat we embark
Ocean roads paved with fear and lust
Embellishments of my human skin
I fall through cracks, breaking the bond
The wandering madness embraces me again

A man of empty face gazes
I force the scars to bleed again
A crone of many children cackles
I embrace this madness

All pray to me - a transient god to bleed for
All beckon me who seek to steal away my madness
