Halothane Rochester, New York

Conceptualized in 2010, Halothane was originally the solo project of guitarist and vocalist Nicholas Burrell. The four-song EP "Dissension" was released in 2012, and the band lineup solidified shortly after with the addition of drummer Bill Rotach and bassist Joe Rotach.

Track Name: Kingdom of Lies
Victim of a mass illusion
Trust the fables of tradition

Helpless and dismayed
Devastating ways
Promises of love
Benefit of none

Sever the ties
Chains of a fallen idol
Kingdom of lies
Facing all who follow

Desperation, hypocrisy
Waging war upon humanity

Betrayed by faith (broken inside)
Fallen from grace (sever the ties)

Feed upon eternal misery
Passively await complacency

Consciousness enslaved
Reality taken to the grave
Track Name: Desolate
Feeding on the corpse of reason
Plunge into the depths of hell
Lost the sense of all compassion
Eating at your self control
Fade into a life of darkness
Where no one can hear your cries
Overcome by guilt and shame
Take away your lust for life

Embrace the downfall
Stare into nothing
Withering, drifting, yet longing for more
A tragic illusion, flickering light
Spiral into death

Watch the pieces slip away
you'll see your future end today
Ignorance consumes control
A desolate, forsaken soul

Death of all that once brought solace
Harrowing display of fate
Sickness follows all around you
Spreading all your lies and hate
Shackled by the chains of regret
Misery controls you now
Endless road that leads to nowhere
Barren waste is all that's left
Track Name: Dissension
Paragon of dereliction
Unrestrained capricious vision
Feed the masters of subversion
Tangled in a world of fiction

Disconnect and drift between realities
Falling victim to your fantasies

Tormented, infected nature
Fragmented and lost to failure
Bleeding, incomplete awakening
Lurid as the times are changing

Vacant distant gaze
Haunted yesterdays
Throes of dissension
Track Name: Scars of Ashes
Far from the light I wander
Idle shade, fall behind

Cold and restless, darkness rise
Fading hunger, burning skies
In my absence, final storm
Temples fall and rain adorns

Transparent icy words
Collapsing brevity

Broken hope
Drag my body
Into the snow

Scars of ashes
Vicious scorn

Stark reflection within
All is gone, undone
