Starting a ridiculous thrash/hardcore band where every song is about lifting weights

    Put together our first demo yesterday about dehydrating yourself to make weight for a competition, haha... The whole thing is obviously a joke, just thought some people here might get a kick out of it :kickass:

    EDIT: New version: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3616293/Deadlift - Make Weight or Die_oct24.mp3


    Make Weight or Die

    Sitting in a bath of 103
    Avoiding burns of the second degree
    This is ten times harder than you thought it would be
    But you’re lifting tomorrow and you’ve still got to make weight

    Ice cubes in your mouth are a fucking tease
    Feels like you've been infected by a disease
    Don't even have the energy to wrap up your knees
    But you’re lifting tomorrow and you still got to make weight

    Make weight or die!
    The only way to lift at 275
    Don't eat that pie
    Go and turn up the heat
    Cuz you weigh 300 and you still gotta lose 25

    Hours away the sweating gets intense
    Should you compete at super heavy? You're still on the fence
    Your immune system’s losing all of its defense
    But you can't give up now, cuz you’ve still got to make weight

    Sitting in the car with the heat on full blast
    Crying on the shitter while you empty out your ass
    This uncomfortable feeling is never gonna pass
    get rid of the excess cuz you still got to make weight

    Make weight or die!
    The only way to lift at 275
    Don't fucking cry
    Put on that garbage bag
    Cuz you’re still 280 and you have to lose another 5

    Waking up after two hours sleep
    Your body needs some fluids but the penalty's steep

    The walls are spinning as you reach for your keys
    You know you shouldn't drive, but you need to compete

    Your senses numb and you can't see a thing
    Co-ordinations gone, you're hallucinating

    You park your car and collapse out the door
    Crawling to the scale cause it's time to make weight

    Finally you step on the official scale
    Buck naked wondering if you'll prevail
    The judges say that you’re unhealthily pale
    But the reading is clear and you made that fucking weight!

    Make weight or die!
    You finally made it down to 275
    Go eat that pie!
    Eat everything in sight
    Cuz your total will suck if don't gain that fucking weight

    This is the fucking coolest thing in the world. I want to be in this band. Is that you on vocals?? Fucking rules.

    *Edit* just got to the slow-down portion of it. This is my new favorite band ever.

    "Deadlift" gotta be the best bandname in the world :lol:

    I'm only liking very few hardcore stuff, and this is awesome. Both the concept and the music.
    Make an album and sell it at your gym for the guys to get pumped before the pumping haha

    Haha, thanks for the positive feedback guys, looking forward to writing more of this stuff. Comes together so easy because I don't take it seriously at all, literally can write and record a whole song in 3 hours, haha...

    Hahaha, pumped you like it man. Yeah that's me on vocals! :kickass: That middle riff owns.

    This is hands down the best song that has or ever will get posted on this forum. I think it is safe to close this bitch down and tell every band and engineer in the world to quit.

    I am going to the gym right now and will be sharing this with friends in hopes of massive gains due to ear-produced testosterone. Thank you.

    That was fantastic.

    Man, now all I can think of is lyrics based on my weight lifting days.

    Hahaha, thanks man, and thanks for guest listing me at Warped in Toronto, I doubt you remember I'm the same guy haha...

    I'm gonna put up a slightly different version in a few minutes, then I have to start working on the other tunes...

    Band is going to be called Deadlift, and the EP is going to be called Neckless and Reckless (a tribute to traps! haha...)

    Looking to be 4 or 5 songs, with the idea right now to be the chronological lead up to a powerlifting meet...

    Track 1 will be about training for the meet
    Track 2 will be about eating insane amount of food to facilitate training for the meet
    Track 3 will be Make Weight or Die, about making weight for the meet
    Track 4 will be "PR or ER", about actually lifting at the meet, haha...

    Fuck this project is so much fun.

    I remember, I think you need Tony Sannicandro in this band as well. If you need any guest bass licks, I'd love to be a part of it. Although I weighed 158 two days ago and 164 today, so I'm not cutting very well.

    Yeah, haha. I literally bought my first box yesterday and now I'm 6 pounds heavier. I think it's a fluke though. I must need to dump.
