Transmitting the reflection of self.
Every motion is self-serving.
Inherent animation tows desperate hopes and lies.
Deny the phthisis we cling to.

Wide expanses festooned with flags and singing
And shrines built to you.
What a smile!
Your teeth start to shudder your jaws gnash and clasp.
The sea rushes in, the applause all for you with parades and confetti. We're drinking it in!
What a smile!

A cursed and common physiology.
With the hope pretensions float in a flood.
Over-feeding on congratulation.
Clotted milk oozing rancid from a hidden teet.

A grey wreckage in the deep.
A dead ruin. Far beyond a dormant sun.
Our tomb dug in our mind.
Our tomb.

Sink into the earth.
The dancing wave, hugs the air and heaves.
Attempts to bridge ego and flesh.
The strongest bastions breached.


from Echelon, released January 23, 2016

Lyrics: Justin Daley
Engineered and recorded by Jesse Oberin
Mixed and mastered by Adam Calaitzis at Toyland Studios, Melbourne

Ordnance Melbourne, Australia

Formed in 2011, Ordnance is a metal band from Melbourne. Our first EP "Blight" released in 2012 is available here.

We finally released our debut album "Echelon" in January 2016 after 2 years of recording and trying in vain to find a drummer. We hope to remedy that situation soon so that we might continue to play live and write. Work has already begun on our 2nd album.
