about

Everything was better in the old days. Every modern death metal band is trying to be more technical or more brutal than the next to the point that they lose the essence of the music. Others go so far as to mix it with other styles tainting the purity and aggression of that unmistakable early 90’s death metal sound.

With their first full length album “The Laws of Power”, released worldwide via SAOL on March 17th 2017, Assimilation prepares for a counterstrike. They’ll batter audiences with a healthy dose of classic death metal and thrash with none of the filler.

Like a force of nature, the voice of singer and founding member Jesse Jardine’s vocal attack leaves the listener penetrated by high shrieks, and pummeled by mid’s and lows. Lead guitarist Matt Chanway brings his neo-classical shred style into the fold to melt off any remnants of what used to be your face. Shiloh Anderson holds the low end down with his finger/slap hybrid style, and Stephen Shaw brings his experience and ferocity as the entity that keeps this juggernaut from flying off the rails.

With “The Laws Of Power”, the four Canadians make it clear: There are still bands well versed in the art of the original uncompromising death metal, something that is hard to find these days. Assimilation is going to change this – and drag everyone and everything with them on the way.

Track Name: Sigil of The False God
Sigil of the false god (x3)

Worship of the false deity
Your idol ignored your plea
The strength you need is within
Buried deep within the skin

To put one above yourself
Is the fallacy
Weakness masked with faith
And naivety

I - am not concerned
With - opinions of fools
Those - that do not comprehend
The - most basic of rules.

Faith in higher being
Implies - weakness of self.
Everything you need you have
Know - your inner wealth.

Sigil of the false god (x2)

I hate, mediocrity
I value, swift ascendancy
I loathe, beings of desire
Cast down! (x3)
Track Name: Decapitated By Beasts
Exile you look to me
For pity you receive none!

Through the portal you must travel
Back where you came from!

Only then will you be free
From this endless, agony!

Gather your thoughts for the Journey...

The beasts they gain ground
Your head will never be... Found!

Run Mortal Flee, For your soul…

The beasts close in to devour
Your body
But not your head, that they save
For eternity
Your soul encased deep inside
Your mind
The seat of the soul, gone blind
Mutilated

Freedom achieved from this plane
Of existence
No more hatred, no more fear
Just contentment
You are no longer bound here
Passage granted
These beasts grant you your freedom
Salvation!
Track Name: Laws of Power
Never outshine the master
They'll punish you for making them feel inferior.
Crush your enemy complete
Strike the shepherd and the sheep will, scatter.

Adherence to these rules
Guarantees, desired power
These, rules, will be used
Against you, and your kin

In times of prosperity
Prepare for coming wartime.
Everyone cannot be saved.
Each man must prepare.

Behold the laws of power
Follow these to ensure, your desires
Behold the laws of power
Transgression, leads to destruction!

Enter action with boldness
Timidity is dangerous.
Demand the respect of kings
And reap, the rewards it brings.

Adherence to these rules
Guarantees, desired power
These, rules, will be used
Against you, and your kin

In times of prosperity
Prepare for coming wartime.
Everyone cannot be saved.
Each man must prepare.

Behold the laws of power
Follow these to ensure, your desires
Behold the laws of power
Transgression, leads to destruction!
Track Name: Karmic Future
I must kill you
You will all die
You will be my…Sacrifice!

You begged
You prayed
You looked me…
In the eyes!

In life
You failed
Weakness
Prevailed

Squandered
All you were
Karmic
Future!

Self inflicted all your pain
Spit on others, none to gain
You’re a fucking parasite
Mind devoid of what is right.
Track Name: Mastery
Endure endless barbs
Of the envious
I must stand tall
Tower above them all!

Time will soon expose your weakness.
And burden you with your own mortality.

Mastery…
Is Achieved(x6)
Track Name: Apotheosis
Primal instinct drives me to your cause.
Source of power and my greatest flaws.
Deep inside your genome I will dwell.
You will know my pain and fear me well.

I am everything you’ll ever need.
Ambrosia of life, embrace the creed.
Power of the ancients rape my soul!
Unbecoming wretch achieves it’s goal.

I am your consciousness.
I am your pain.
I am your god!
Now speak my name!

I am your consciousness.
I am your pain.
I am your God!
I take my reign!

Apotheosis!
Apotheosis!

Apotheosis is now complete.
Master and creator at last meet.

Deception the being’s greatest trait.
Of no use to this God I now rape!

I am your consciousness.
I am your pain.
I am your god!
Now speak my name!

I am your consciousness.
I am your pain.
I am your God!
I take my reign!
Track Name: Remotion of The Succubus
Dreaming, pleading, never seeking, plains of higher thought.
Blaming others for misfortune, you yourself have wrought.

Adherence to past trespasses of others on you.
Instead of strength you choose victim, blame the life you knew.

Remotion
Of the succubus
Toxic, entity
Finally free! (x2)

Removing cancer, ruthlessly.
There is no pleading, no mercy.

Through will I conquer, endlessly.
No longer entrenched, in fantasy.

Passion
Covetous
Jealousy
Obsession
(x2)

You left me your tainted blood, and your foul sickness.
Feinted caring, means to an end, selfish and viscous.

Slither to the next worthless fool, beta to the core.
In this life or in the next, control never more!

Remotion
Of the, succubus
Toxic, entity
Finally free! (x2)
Track Name: Personal Vendetta
Muscle and sinew built with hate.
With this strength, I will create.

My mind Is now my own.
Power to now… hone.

Flesh and blood it seems is all we are
But it is all that, we know so far(x2)

You have made a foe,
An Enemy.
Made it personal,
Now you bleed for me!(x3)
Track Name: S.L.D.
(Instrumental)
Not enough for you?
Let's not be greedy now...
Track Name: Massive Liquidation
Who is this?
That fills me
With such, hatred-----

Corrupted, leader,
On a throne- that is –made- of –gold----

Liquidate
All the earths
Inhabitants,
They are cursed

Crushed under feet
Destroy
All they meet
Denizen
Of decay
Nothing

Run,
For your life
Flee
All the strife

Coward
This is plain
Weakness
Death in Vain!
