about

Hitman Halifax, Nova Scotia

Formed in September 2011, these whiskey-rockers took their favourite stoner-metal influences (such as Black Sabbath, Down, Kyuss, and Clutch), added a dash of thrash, a sprinkle of neo-classical shred, and rolled it all up into the fattest sound in Halifax! ... more

Track Name: The Addiction
Back on the streets, you're running wild
You're only young, you're just a child
A dichotomy without a cause
A forgotten dream, that I piss on

Stone that breaks the glass
A bottle to drown in
Now I have done the math
And it don't add up to shit

Night always meets the rising sun
It shines its light where once was none
Dog bare their teeth, more bark than bite
False memory with no foresight

Until the bond is severed
You'll find no peace in me
Flipped switch but broken lever
Won't yield results you seek

Sold my soul
Rock and roll
It's the addiction you lean on

Stone that breaks the glass
A bottle to drown in
Now I have done the math
And it don't add up to shit

Until the bond is severed
You'll find no peace in me
Flipped switch but broken lever
Won't yield results you seek

Sold my soul
Rock and roll
It's the addiction I live for
Track Name: Preacher (Hell Is Just A Hole)
The preacher said to me my boy you're gonna die
Ain't nothin' right with you, you never even tried
You killed a hundred men and never shed a tear
You've looked into their eyes instead of in the mirror

I know you've dreamt of this, you dreamt it long ago
It must feel empty boy, living with no soul
You can't come back from here, you've given up control
You say hell's just a hole, lets see how deep it goes

Torn between the right and wrong
The hands of time will cut you down before to long
I found out just how deep it goes
Hell is just a hole

I won't give sympathy, you got here on your own
There ain't no god for you, my boy you're all alone
I will not pray for you, I will not even cry
The preacher said to me, not it's your time to die

Torn between the right and wrong
The hands of time will cut you down before to long
I found out just how deep it goes
Hell is just a hole

He pulled out his gun
It was a .45
It was either him or I walking out alive
With anger in his heart and murder on his mind
Sent by the word of god but it must have been
It must have been a lie

Torn between the right and wrong
The hands of time will cut you down before to long
I found out just how deep it goes
Hell is just a hole

Hell is now your
Hell is now your
Hell is now your home
I know you've been there before
Track Name: Under The Weight
At the end of the line,
Bold revisions made,
Bring it back to life,
Go back the way we came,
Masses pleading, undivided, chips fall where they may,
Reminiscent, lines corroding, make the guilty pay

As we watch the world we made,
Give way under the weight,
Remember everything

In the back of your mind,
Impulse decisions made,
Back into the fire,
Rebirth unto the flame,
Words deceive, illuminating flaws in the machine,
Weakness growing when unchallenged, empty shell remains

I'd like to lodge a complaint against the powers that be,
Can I speak with an agent from your faceless regime,
To the back of the line is all they say to me,
Another muscle is flexed by the bureaucracy
