about

Paranorm Sweden

A thrash metal band from Uppsala, Sweden set out to create an inspired form of thrash metal, incorporating many different elements without straying too far away from the original sound, concept and ideals of the genre.

Their goal is to expand upon the new wave of thrash metal while finding their own niche within the genre, thus leaving a mark on the realm of heavy metal.

Track Name: Aggressive Inhibitions
Verse 1:
Lurking deep down below
Silently biding his time
Old as man himself
Certain as death to life

A dark passenger
Tearing from the inside
A ghastly companion
That promises destruction

Chorus:
They say every once in a while
If you visit his dark domain
The ageless one will resurface
And you will trigger your own demise
Demise!

[Solo: Fredrik Kjellgren]

[Solo: Markus Hiltunen]

Verse 2:
Preying on the susceptible
Delusive, fragile mind
Unaware of a presence
Set out to consume

A nightly visitor
In your darkest of dreams
Prompting to repeat
Man's old mistakes

Chorus:
They say every once in a while
If you visit his dark domain
The ageless one will resurface
And you will trigger your own demise

Verse 3:
Releasing your inner being,
Breaking down your aggressive inhibitions
Track Name: Predators of Peace
Verse 1:
Predators of peace
A system dependant on war
Exploiters of conflict
Yearning for control
A greedy cause
Disguised as good will
Painting a facade
Deception your ultimate thrill

Pre-chorus:
Submission through blackmail
Control by illusion

Chorus:
National manipulator
Spreading influence
Dividing oppressor
Gaining governance

[Solo: Fredrik Kjellgren]

Verse 2:
Firing first, thinking after
Tomorrows problems not your own
Oblivious to consequence
Your ignorance cannot be condoned

Pre-chorus:
Submission through blackmail
Control by illusion

Chorus:
National manipulator
Spreading influence
Dividing oppressor
Gaining governance

Verse 3:
Total dominance not enough
Continuing power-abuse
Everyone will turn on you
You'll find yourself a recluse

Verse 4:
Domination won't last long
You're digging your own grave
Better start counting your days
For I won't be this government's slave!

[Solo: Fredrik Kjellgren]
Track Name: Shattered Future Tense
Verse 1:
Born in an age when man hates nature
Conscience overcome by greed
One of a species determined to lay waste
On dying earth we feed

Caught in man's short sighted ways
Unwilling to accept change
Torn by our own arrogance
A race that's gone deranged

Chorus:
What will happen to a species,
Incapable of foresight?
Why can't we just live and let live?

How can we justify,
Our present existence,
When we leave a shattered future tense?

Verse 2:
Alive in a world, dark by our misdeeds
Where we wander in our sleep
Left in a spiral of destruction
On a planet, abused and mistreated

Died in an age when time ceased to exist
Gaia's face grows cold
Felt her twist in torment
As the last resistance broke

Chorus:
What will happen to a species,
Incapable of foresight?
Why can't we just live and let live?
How can we justify,
Our present existence,
When we leave a shattered future tense?

[Instrumental]

[Solo: Fredrik Kjellgren]

[Verse 3]
For death by his own hand
Humanity is marked
Of this global genocide
Each man plays a part

[Solo: Fredrik Kjellgren]

Chorus:
What will happen to a species,
Incapable of foresight?
Why can't we just live and let live?
How can we justify,
Our present existence,
When we leave a shattered future tense?
Track Name: Strike Hard, Strike Fast
Verse 1:
Months and years have passed me by
Been waiting far too long
Patiently preparing, biding my time
This time things can't go wrong
Deep inside a feeling stirs
The moment is at hand
Obsessively driven by vengeance and fear
It's time to make a stand

Chorus:
Strike hard!
Strike, fast!

Verse 2:
Flickering lights before your eyes
Ears ringing with noise
Mayhem piercing through your brain
You're left without a choice
Sudden silence, quick release
The calm before the storm
Catch your breath before it's gone
And thrash to Paranorm!

Chorus:
Strike hard!
Strike, fast!

[Solo: Fredrik Kjellgren]
Track Name: The Indoctrinated
Verse 1:
Pointless virtues,
Urged by white-clad men
Lying and cheating
Over and over again
Hollow promises
False sense of safety
Trusting a god
To lead you to your destiny

Chorus:
Look at life for what it is
Seeing through their lies
Believe in nothing, trust in no one
Rip the veil of disguise
Indoctrination,
Your senses overthrown
It's up to you to form your own fate
In the end, we're all alone

Verse 2:
Ancient writings
Designed to lead astray
Ambiguous fables
Misread along the way
Declared divinity
Determined for political gain
Two-faced cross
Twisting the truth to sustain

Chorus:
Look at life for what it is
Seeing through their lies
Believe in nothing, trust in no one
Rip the veil of disguise
Indoctrination,
Your senses overthrown
It's up to you to form your own fate
In the end, we're all alone

[Solo: Fredrik Kjellgren]

Verse 3:
Manipulating bastards
Sanctimonious fools
What's the point in believing
If you can't adapt to your own rules?

Brain-dead obedience
Your will's not your own
If you trust the contradictions
Spewed from a papal throne!

Verse 4:
Pointless virtues,
Urged by white-clad men
Lying and cheating
Over and over again
Hollow promises
False sense of safety
Trusting a god
To lead you to your destiny

Chorus:
Look at life for what it is
Seeing through their lies
Believe in nothing, trust in no one
Rip the veil of disguise
Indoctrination,
Your senses overthrown
It's up to you to form your own fate
In the end, we're all alone
Track Name: Atmospheres
Verse 1:
Stifled by reality
Transparent actuality
Drowning in vacuous seas

Projected ambiguity
Surrounding conspiracy
Unconditional ambivalence

Chorus:
Erratic fantasy unfolds
Atmospheres apart
Fictitious paradigm unveiled
In an abstruse truth

Verse 2:
Shifted objectivity
Sheltering fantasy
Confined within the clouds

Sentient instability
Cerebral anarchy
Witnessing pandemonium's rise

Chorus:
Erratic fantasy unfolds
Atmospheres apart
Fictitious paradigm unveiled
In an abstruse truth

Chorus 2:
But I will break
The boundaries of space
Pierce the ice, crack the surface
And embrace the universe

[Instrumental]

[Solo: Fredrik Kjellgren]

[Repeat Chorus and Chorus 2]

[Instrumental outro]
