about

This self-titled record is our first full length album which we produced somewhere between 2010 and 2012. It's a result of our efforts to put a more progressive touch to what we would normally call death metal.

Overall aggressive with fat and chunky guitars and pounding drums, but always involving some mind twisting polyrhythm patterns and riffs, as well as some melodic, even fusion like parts, which gives it a special distinct flavor.

The vocals, which are aggressive shouts and screams unwrought with melodic clean vocal parts , perfectly round up the songs, while on one hand being very straight forward, but on the other hand swirling around the complex polyrhythm riffs which gives it even more of an unique character.

Lyrically the record is somehow a reflection of our modern day lives. It deals with many issues of personal nature, like substance abuse, hate, despair but also inner strength, determination and love. In adittion, it covers many critical views on our society like militarism, global capitalism and greed, religion and politics. It reflects the perception of both, our inner self and the world we live in, from an individual and personal point of view.

about

Driven By Entropy Hessen, Germany

The purpose was to bring the convex lens in position and create a complex but calculated chaos. Building a statue of polymetric shapes, unsettling riffs and shattering vocals there is still a piece of straight, heavy and raw music in the songs. All this combined and merged into the self titled debut album DRIVEN BY ENTROPY is the alternative to the conformity in your music collection. ... more

Track Name: Collateral
This is what they say...

nevermind the cost of thousand lives
a small price to pay everyday
'cause after all we got a lot more of them on stock
We don't give a fuck

Why you still pretend you're not sick in your head?
'cause we know better then that
draw your pens and pull the trigger, watch us die!

freedom rights carved on a bloodred skin
a small price to pay everyday
'cause after all they all are just victims for the cause
you did never give a fuck,
you never gave a fuck about them anyway

just think about it
c'mon, c'mon!
all of you are so fucking insane
no doubt about it
you are the reason for our shame

is this what you offer really freedom or disgrace?
is this protection for your people?
don't make me spit in your face

just think about it
c'mon, c'mon!
all of you are so fucking insane
no doubt about it
you are the reason for our shame
Track Name: Anger
in the mid of the night
while you are dreaming
darkness burns in my mind
thoughts are screaming anger
motherfucking anger

I`m twisting in pain
turning in to hate
hate him, hate you, hate myself
love you to hell

darkest, deepest, anger

I feel the hatred rising, I realize
something is wrong
no sense in sight
something dies inside

something dies, deep inside

I`m starting to realize that I am living a fucking lie
living a lie, loving a lie, I was fucking a lie

starting to see
there`s no more we
disillusion, nowhere to flee
desperation, there`s only me
I cannot believe this shit
it hurts but I`m lovin` it
getting addicted to the pain
fucking insane

darkest, deepest, anger
Track Name: We Will Never Surrender
Listen all you motherfuckers
Say your prayers
Now it’s time to kill each other
Fuck, who cares?


I!
Tell me now, tell me now
Tell me, do you care?
Tell me now, tell me now
Fuckin’ you don’t care


Listen all you scum, betrayers
Time to die
We’re the ones who rule the world
Don’t ask why


Why?
Tell me now, tell me now
Tell me, do you care?
Tell me now, tell me now
Fuckin’ you don’t care about us!

You don’t give a shit about us
That’s why I don’t give a fuck about you
No way, fucking coward
No way, coward!


No, we will never be like you
We’ll never give in to your attitude
And we will never surrender

We will never surrender to you
Track Name: Void
Useless, it's fucking useless to insist
I can't live by your rules, I got my own
I can't lie, listen, you are unable to percieve
that you're a goddamn fool when you say...

...my life is wasted, it's just there for dying
and I just waste my mind on countless ways of trying

goddamn...forget it, I cannot change it
can't change myself
I can't live the life that you live I got my own
You did not listen
I am unable to be the person you wanted
so leave me the fuck alone now

I am lying to these eyes that you see
theese eyes are we, these eyes can se
we're deliberately falling into this void

I am lying, to these eyes
this is my life
bliss destroyes, life defying
in this void I will die

my life is wasted, it's just there for dying
and I just waste my mind on countless ways of trying
I can't feel my life, I can't feel my mind
An empty shell that just can't see
this empty shell is me
Track Name: Cause I Say So
I am taking my life back into my hands
I’m taking back my LIFE!

End of the line, I will no longer
Crush my design, I will be stronger
From now on I will
I saw myself, dying in misery
Choking for life, spitting a blood stain
Regrets filled my brain

Is this how it’s supposed to end?
No! No! No!
I’m taking my life back in my hands
‘cause I say so!

Fucking torture
This won’t break me. No way!
I will break free
Cause I say so

I'll never give in to your pressure
don`t push me around
End of the line. I made the right choice
It made me strong, listen to my voice
I will crush you down

Is this how it’s supposed to end?
No! No! No!
I’m taking my life back into my fucking hands
cause I say so!

Tonight I am closing the door
I’ll overcome this excruciation
Tonight I will be reborn!

I’m taking my life back into my hands
Cause I say so
Cause I can affect on how It`s gonna end
Cause I say so
Track Name: Are You Alive?
Why?!

Go fuck yourself, you stupid piece of shit
Thinking money bears all the answers
That’s 'cause you’re asking the wrong fucking questions
Why the fuck you think that you’re alive?

Are you alive?! Tell me! Are sure that you are alive?!

No, you’re not alive
Let me tell you why
'cause greed is all you have in your mind

I cannot imagine you’re sleeping well at night
With that attitude of yours
“Give me more, I want more of that green disease”
Till you can’t count that shit no more

Are you alive?! Hell no!
Why the fuck you think that you’re alive?

For no reason, a stupid waste of life
Fuckin’ waste of potential
It’s a goddamn shame, you are all the same
I won’t play your game

Failed existence, no importance

No, you’re not alive
Let me tell you why
'cause greed is all you have in your mind
Listen to me when I say:
You’re not alive
you will never know why
`cause you are worthless
why don’t you just die?

Are you alive?
You’re not alive!
Track Name: Escaping
Someone else is being me tonight
Can’t see myself in the light of my bathroom mirror
I am reluctant to fight, don’t want my mind to be getting clearer
Escaping my daydream, intoxicating my insides
I’m losing grip, I’m feeling sick, accelerating my demise

I’m cold inside, empty mind, consciousness slides away

Escaping… can’t take it any more
Separated from my mind
Aggregated frustration is killed inside
Escaping again, escaping again

I can’t take my consciousness no more
Can’t take this pain in my sour and infected body
But still I’m craving for more, I’m fuckin’ craving for more
Escaping my daydream, intoxicating my insides
I’m losing grip, I’m feeling sick, accelerating my demise

I feel no grief, there’s only sweet relief in my soul
I can’t deny I’m an addictive kind, I want more!
One day this will kill me, self-destructive desire
But today it thrills me, I want to feel that fire

I’m falling into a dream…

Separated from my mind
Aggregated frustration is killed inside
Escaping again, escaping again

Fuck that!

I can’t take this any longer
I can’t take this any more
Track Name: No One Survived
someone`s gonna die
you better belive me
open your eyes
see the fate of mankind

dark skies lay above us
the fog of war has disappeared
what it has left is sorrow
and the thunder pounding in our ears

we all died
no one survived

it was man against man
child against child
no one survived

save us, save yourself
save us

deserts cover everything
that once was the world of plenty
getting harder to remember
how it was when I was twenty

why? 'cause no one survived this hell
no one
it was man against man
child against child
no one survived

struck with brutal force
show them no remorse
everything alive
had to die

chances to kill are higher
with a machine gun
FIRE!
DIE!

Save us, save yourself
Kill us, kill yourself
Track Name: Lies
Behind the mask of creation
the truth is mass-devastation
destroying the roots of all civilized worlds
nothing but lies we heard
so, how can they look in our eyes?
how can they claim that they're right?
I don't buy their lies
all of you, stand by my side, now!

just because they say so, doesen't mean the truth is told
only our open eyes will reveal their fucking lies

it's time to make a conclusion
time to disclose their dellusion
don't let their lies make you reality-blind

the liars voice swaying
don't listen to their saying

No

just fear of the unknown
keeps us on our own
don't you understand
that we are strong
push them from their throne
crush them liars bones
cast the final stone

Leave us alone
we don't belive in your domination
choke on your lies
you don't know whats gonna be
don't you preach your lies to me

don't you preach your lies to me
don't you preach your goddamn lies!
Track Name: Collapse
Give me some silence!
I need some time to unscramble my mind
The absence of every single sound
Give me silence!
Once in a while, I need some quiescent time
To find all the answers that have to be found
They have to be found

Breathing, slowly breathing, beating endlessly
Thinking, mindless thinking, endless questioning
I want to know...

Who...
Who are you?
Who am I?
And why are these answers denied?

I am flowing, overflowing insides of my mind
I can ignore what I can’t deny
I am drowning, I am drowning in these waves of questions
All answeres that I need have to be found
Right now

Cause I want absolution
Breathing faster, beating faster, reckoning
Mindless thinking, endless questions
repeating, repeating…


No…
Oh no!
It’s repeating, my mind is running in circles
I’m about to breakdown
My synapses are collapsing
It’s cascading throughout my brain
Massive mind disorder
Every fucking attempt to escape is in vain
I want...

Freedom, freedom...
Absolution, absolution...
Breathing faster, beating faster, inside of my mind
I can ignore what I can’t deny
Mindless thinking, endless questions
repeating, repeating…
