Laid Wasted Southampton, UK

Laid Wasted is an extreme metal band from Southampton, UK formed in 2010 with the goal of creating original, diverse, and abstruse compositions.

This focus has since shifted gradually towards a progressive approach, merging dynamics and intricacy to create a volatile and evocative soundscape.

The band is due to record an EP in 2017. Plans are also in motion for the debut and sophomore albums.

Track Name: The Tale [Demo]
A third where two already
Try to occupy one
A house of madness
where reason doesn't fit

A glove of black hangs
Pulling puppet strings
As the knight leaves the battlefield
The hole in things expands

I speak the tale
Of Zur-En-Arrh
I speak the tale

As if madness were a rabbit hole
You can follow down into understanding

Now you know how it feels to be the clown at midnight
Where there's only ever one joke, and it's always
On you

Static! Static!
Nonsense words
Over and over

But what do they say?

Red and black
Love and hate
Life and death
The joke and the punchline

I speak the tale
Of Zur-En-Arrh
I speak the tale
Track Name: Vengeance in the Air [Demo]
All the pain
All the struggle
All the years

The last laugh will be mine

Vengeance is in the air

All the anguish
All the blood
All the tears

The last laugh will be mine

Did you honestly think there would be no repercussions?
Did you honestly think my hatred would not grow?
Coming for you now
