about

Nomasta Leeds, UK

A new 3 piece conjuring up their own blend of noise magic; the metallic edge of Mastodon and Gojira, punishing onslaughts reminiscent of Baroness and High On Fire.

Nomasta infuse doom laden thrash amidst bursts of elephantine riffs and dancing time signatures, sonic brutality for the discerning metal fans.

Track Name: The Book Burners
Burn my skin to a crust
Pick at it you fuck
Grind my bones into dust
And my body to nothing

Set me free
A new skin for all
Old ways converted
But it shocks like napalm.

It's in these eyes
Refusing to die
Twisted and tightened skin
Shape this wretched thing
The book burners
Their pride's in the ash they leave behind.

This earth ages the hands as I
Dig through its dirt.

So close your mind and die

Leave me behind
I know
There's no room left to grow
A road of gold amidst the dirt
Nothing left to show
No clear way home
We burn these tomes.

We have grown
Slaves to everything
Is this life through some insane eyes
Just suffer and leave me to die.

So you save me
Save my soul
So you save me
Save my soul
Track Name: Sir Impaler
Suffer decline
We bathe in lungfuls of blood
Here's where power lies
Sir Impaler
Beds of upright nails
On bloodied rungs we rot

Establishment of lies reveals itself
How have we destroyed ourselves?
Come on we need help now
Free us from hell.

Son of dragon
Your tomb of horse bone and jaws
You paid off death once more.
Sadistic tyrant
Mothers feed their husbands whole
Here lies the burning shell of a child.
it's eyes open wide.

Reveal yourself
How have we destroyed ourselves
Come on we need help now
Free us from hell

Come on i need you now
Cover me from the angry crowd
Come on i need you now
Cover me from the violent sound
Track Name: House Of The Tiger King
Through cracks of Amazon
Off the beaten track it hides
Built it up from blood and guts
There's a place i know

Gold artefacts
Lost souls & bones

Northern stars
Cast a silouette
A mortal man
Is now nothingness

Death Horde
Invaders and slaves

Into the lair we've over-run
In this place we've grown

I'll keep us here
I'll cover up
What came before
And ever more

One by one they emerge
From the gloom

Come death from life
Shroud of black light

House of the Tiger King
Track Name: This Trail Got The Best Of Us
Tied up, Dragged out.
At deaths door we bark, we march.
The gravel makes it hard.
Barefoot, breaking skin.
Blood stains mark the sand.

Love, will it bind us?
Will it be enough?
Smoke fills our mouths.
Evil wards our dreams.
Send us to sleep.

This trail has got the best of us.
Where is the strength that lifts me up?
To feel alive, twisting life to break its brittle hide.
Hard shelled under husk.
Armored skin won't soften up.

Iron backs will only bend so far.

We were strong before the rain began.
These sails have blown and snapped the mast that bears us home.

To strong to die,
Buried at sea but still alive.
Tall waves toughen us.
Watch the oceans swallow up the world.
Heave, ho, heave, ho
Track Name: At The Mercy Of Sleep
You're lost, angry as hell
Your eyes, they swell
It's raining down

Lost. Cries.
Out here, alone
Comfort is on the way home

You have slept much too long
You're eyes have sealed closed

Here on earth I chase the years
Sleep debts leave no mark
I'm only so familiar now
We are at the mercy of sleep
Psychosis will claw you out

I sought origins of the universe
Track Name: Dawnbreaker
Witch, Witch
Black eyes, whitened skin
Scratch and twitch

Here she stands after all these years
Death claws these walls
It walks among the weary ones
Death stalks these halls
Just watching us

It's lonely on this road
Withstand the aching cold
Outlasting all she's known
Time twists and turns these bones
Death's hand will always be here

War-torn and suffering
By these hands

Swarm of locusts
You kill me

It's lonely on this road
Withstand the aching cold
Outlasting all she's known
The witch stand will always be here

Plagued, you kill me
Dawnbreaker
