about

Originally released in 2010 by Full effect Records. Re-released here by permission. This is the first time "Project N" has been available pay-what-you-want on Bandcamp. Enjoy!

A nonagon is a 9 sided polygon, and this refers to the structure of the album: 9 tracks, each a facet of the whole.

Project Nonagon is part II of the album "This Life Is Where You Get F**ked", released in 2008. Divided into three parts, each with 3 tracks: 1) The Struggle II 2) Ghetto Blasphemer II 3) This Death II. Each part draws from different influences and intends to deliver a different feel.

From The Stars
Rabbit Junk
Album Project Nonagon

The first body we found little more than a dried up husk. It hadn't been there for long. It still had a full kit, ammo, rifle, half pack of cigarettes in the chest pocket
No visible wounds
His uniform was unfamiliar, not one of ours. Like us, he had no flag on his sleeve. I stuffed the cigarettes into my pocket and pulled its cap over its face
About as much ceremony as any of us deserved
We got the signal to proceed and made our way deeper into the structure. In the maze of hallways we found more bodies, desiccated, no wounds. All dead without firing a shot
We had no idea what we were dealing with
And we weren't the first to try. I put my wristwatch to my ear to make sure it was still ticking. It's an old habit. We hadn't been told where we're going or why. We had no idea how big this thing was
And we knew we weren't alone

O' body heat, caress thy wicked sense
Let man's image penetrate the clouding lens
May we see an end to our gnawing frustration
From the stars to the cradle of creation

We started back tracking our way though the structure. Our pace steadily quickened, like we were being followed
Our hurried footsteps echoed on the metal walk ways. We should have been out of there in just a few minutes, but instead we seemed to be going in circles
I was breathing sharply, fighting feelings of panic, trying to remember the way out. That's when I felt it
A penetrating cold in my chest. I choked on my breath, unable to move, suddenly paralyzed, held by some terrible force

May the void bless this feast, may the bounty never cease
May the fluid ever flow, may our young grow and grow
We blessed few to become the crimson hue
Shall make a paradise of this world anew

The air filled with a plume of crimson. A network of veins took shape around me, the scarlet fluid outlining a bloated form floating in the air
I could feel a cold gelatinous digit probe the inside of my mouth. My eyes were locked open, enslaved to the horror unfolding before me; my blood curdled in its gut and flared throughout its tissue
The tip of my finger brushed the hilt of my knife. Rage boiled up from the depths of me and brought my last remaining strength with it
I heard my watch tick

I grit my teeth
And lashed out with the blade
Feel the spray from wound I had made
Pushed the horror aside and rose to my feet
I'm gonna take you with me!
Others closed in with menacing glee
Floating and bloated with eyes hungry
I felt overwhelmed with the will to survive
I roared like a lion and lunged with my knife

Obedient ones to the old one's ways
Drink to them to slow our prey
To give us strength in the face of leaded sting
To the glorious hunt, may sustenance it bring
Track Name: The Revenge of Julian Modely
I realized that this book was just the sort of thing I had been looking for. Upon these crumbling yellowed pages was the key to my revenge. No longer would I suffer their ridicule, ignorance, and prejudice. No longer would I rush quietly through the halls, desperate to avoid yet another encounter with their toothy insults and pointing fingers. Finally they will learn some respect! Finally, they would learn to submit to me, Julian Modely

I whispered the words, careful not to awaken my idiot room mate, Harold. "Tibi, Magnum Innominandum, signa stellarum nigrarum et bufoniformis Sadoquae sigillum". Nothing happened. I read them again, slightly louder, this time eliciting a tired groan from the slumbering fat-boy. I felt an almost imperceptible vibration in the air. A shudder shook the room. Then, before my wide eyes, Harold's flabby body levitated above his bed. His eyes popped open and his hands grasped outwards in half-woken panic. His eyes began to bulge. Some thing shown in the pale light, some sort of cloud enveloping him. It slowly took on more depth as Harold's body contorted and stiffened. Soon I could make out horrid claws, mandibles, and grotesque sucking appendages. Things had taken a turn for the better

The summoned Abomination:
Who the fuck has woken us up?
Their death will be painful but quick
Let us go back to sleep
Cease your whispering
This infernal noise must end

Julian Modely:
It was me!
The new master
Of the mysteries of the worm
I demand
Your service
Enemies must be made to learn

Poor, fat Harold, firmly held in the entities grasp, mummified before my eyes, his blood drained into the creatures body, revealing its misshapen form. The horror floated in mid-air, pulsating with unmistakable life. Its multitude of mouths glistened in the moon light. It was magnificent. Finally, my time had arrived. I would let the horror loose on all those who have defied me. Every boy who pummeled me, every girl who squealed in disgust at my advances. Every teacher who caught me day dreaming and endeavored to make a fool of me in front of the entire class. All will pay dearly. I will set this invisible terror upon all them, without mercy

The summoned Abomination:
You are great among fools
And twice that naive
We suffer no living thing
We obey no rules
Nor follow no law
In chaos, we reign supreme

Julian Modely:
I read the black tome over and over
It said you would be mine to control
I would set you upon every bully and bitch
And slowly take over this miserable world

The summoned Abomination:
You're ours now!
You will do our bidding, creature!
You're ours now!
You will be mine to control
Track Name: The Expedition
I have decided to record what will surely be the last hours of my life. I am the sole survivor of the expedition. So far I have been able to find some safety in this chamber, but I know the barred door won't last much longer

The creature loomed before us
Resplendent in wickedness
But invisible to our senses
We grasped at nothingness

I am no longer sure of what day it is or how long I have been trapped here. I hold no hope for rescue. My only hope is that the information in this recording may help the next expedition stop this terror that has killed us all

[Ghosts of the Expedition:]
Frozen and timeless
Encysted, dormant, dessicated
Drawn to the heat
Of the life-glow and death exhausted
Friction, then impact
Awakened by the penetration
Mindless, but omnipotent
Driven by the only truth

[Professor Warner O'Neill:]
Light bends around this dripping sphere
I feel it penetrate into my deepest fear
It is invisible but its breathing I can hear
I can feel its tongue rasping at my inner ear
Mighty tentacles wrap 'round my neck
It tries to take me in, but I must not let it
How do we fight what cannot even see?
How do we fight when we can't even breathe?

Bastard
Creature
Spawned of chaos old

[The Invisible Hunter:]
When it's all done, you'll be a part of me
Circulating systemically
Horror unfolds in the silent cold
I'll never release my hold

[Professor Warner O'Neill:]
The creature loomed before us
Resplendent in wickedness
But invisible to our senses
We grasped at nothingness

It drank deeply of our essence
Showing itself in a crimson plume
Prolonging the exquisite agony
Showing us the future as it consumed

The creature proved invulnerable to our weapons. All attempts to destroy the thing were fruitless. It drove us deeper into the catacombs and then picked us off one by one. It is almost completely invisible until it feeds

[Ghosts of the Expedition:]
Searching the airless wastes
Its thirst grew on through the eons
Now its lust is only matched
By the numbers of screaming fluid sacks
Oblivious to the haunting threat
Defenseless against attack
Picked off one by one
Embraced by the starborn horror

[Professor Warner O'Neill:]
Alien mind with earthly intent
Tissue and plasma and intellect
Your mind and body it will both infect
You're the nutrient it has come to collect
As it feeds, its form comes to light
Gelatinous veins and brains shining bright
Your flesh is infested, your mind is bested
Defenses tested, nothing is wasted

Bastard
Creature
Spawned of chaos old

[The Invisible Hunter:]
When it's all done, you'll be a part of me
Circulating systemically
Horror unfolds in the silent cold
I'll never release my hold

[Professor Warner O'Neill:]
The creature loomed before us
Resplendent in wickedness
But invisible to our senses
We grasped at nothingness

It drank deeply of our essence
Showing itself in a crimson plume
Prolonging the exquisite agony
Showing us the future as it consumed

It has been steadily exerting force on the door. The ancient timbers are beginning to splinter. Whoever finds this, I implore you, the catacombs must be sealed shut. I fear that the energy the beast has consumed are for reproductive purposes

[The Invisible Hunter:]
I will not go
Back to the cold

I will not go
Back to the cold

[Professor Warner O'Neill:]
The creature loomed before us
Resplendent in wickedness
But invisible to our senses
We grasped at nothingness

It drank deeply of our essence
Showing itself in a crimson plume
Prolonging the exquisite agony
Showing us the future as it consumed

[The Invisible Hunter:]
I will not go
Back to the cold

I will not go
Back to the fucking cold
Track Name: Handlebars
[Verse 1]
I don't know much, that much is true
I know even less when it comes to you
That's what pulls me in, the mystery
And you don't give anything away for free
I can't give up, you never talk
Can't get enough, can't get enough
Assume the worst and I'm probably right
Keep your lips tight and I'm up all night, yeah

Where are we at? I never know
What's off-limits, where can I go?
Running in place at the back of the race
Now it's at high-tide so I go out and ride

[Chorus]
All I know is where my hands go
They go to handle bars
It's 'cause I roll with rock stars
And all I know is where my hands go
They go to handle bars
It's 'cause I roll with rock stars

[Verse 2]
Riding hard to downtown
Look at all my friends milling all around
Can't stop my head from screaming out
Can't even remember what that fight was about

Where are we at? I never know
What's off-limits, where can I go?
Running in place at the back of the race
Now it's at high-tide so I go out and ride

[Chorus]
All I know is where my hands go
They go to handle bars
It's 'cause I roll with rock stars
And all I know is where my hands go
They go to handle bars
It's 'cause I roll with rock stars
Go!

Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

[Bridge]
All night long that same old song
Keeps playing on the record player
And in and out of lives left out
Sometimes I feel like we ain't got a prayer

So come take a ride, a ride with me
Come take a ride, a ride with me
Come take a ride, a ride with me
Come take a ride, a ride with me

[Chorus]
All I know is where my hands go
They go to handle bars
It's 'cause I roll with rock stars
And all I know is where my hands go
They go to handle bars
It's 'cause I roll with rock stars
All I know is where my hands go
They go to handle bars
It's 'cause I roll with rock stars
And all I know is where my hands go
They go to handle bars
It's 'cause I roll with rock stars

[Outro]
Come take a ride, a ride with me
Come take a ride, a ride with me
Come take a ride, a ride with me
Come take a ride, a ride with me
Track Name: Devotee
You see my thing is to bang
The broken heart'd man right out of my head
Forget I am [?] tears on a pillow
Make a last move and make her a widow
But I won't be going down below
Dial the digits of the evil cell phone
Push past the clones in our comfort zones
To a [?] party of these broken bones

Big lights, bright city
Small minds feeling pretty
Small winner, big sinner
Dead city, pull the trigger

All night long
Night, night long

She took me round back, showed me her rack
I'm looking for something else but it ain't for lack
She hiked up her dress and said "You got it all wrong"
I want to pull the trigger, well, sing a sad song
God, lord, take me in a troubling hand
She bit her lip and she's trying to understand
Craziest day she had yesterday
A drone in a suit asking to be blown away

Big lights, bright city
Small minds feeling pretty
Small winner, big sinner
Dead city, pull the trigger

All night long
Night, night long

Go!
Just wake up!

I know I'm part of the sickness
But I'm too sick to get well
So it comes to you I'm an easy sell
If we can be together
Then we'll go down together
Sincerely, your devotee

So tell me what the hustle is
I thought I seen it all in this fucked up biz
But [?] cloaked in a Southern drawl
She wanted a story so I told it all
She looked like she heard it a million times
The loving husband and the cheating wives
She looked down my sight, I think she wouldn't miss
She closed one eye and blew me a kiss

Big lights, bright city
Small minds feeling pretty
Small winner, big sinner
Dead city, pull the trigger

All night long
Night, night long

I know I'm part of the sickness
But I'm too sick to get well
So it comes to you I'm an easy sell
If we can be together
Then we'll go down together
Sincerely, your devotee
