Pumpkin Buzzard is a prolific experimental pop/rock band with forays into black metal, death metal, doom metal, grindcore, noise, power electronics, IDM, hip hop, dark ambient, happy hardcore, punk, industrial, and other styles. The Buzzard's back with their sixth album: Mantis Antler, a collection of summery pop, industrial brutality, and uniquely Buzzardian weirdness. It's a concept album in two different ways: lyrically, it chronicles the apocalyptic return of the extradimensional 'goat kings' to Earth as observed by a heart-broken, suicidal alcoholic in California, and musically, each of the 24 tracks is 10 beats per minute faster than the last, starting at 70 bpm and climaxing at 300! This is a true Buzzard epic, containing the sweetest pop bliss they've ever created paired with constantly-increasing world-ending insanity. Get it while you still exist! Packaged in a DVD-style case with a full-color insert. 'Leading in with a lazy Dinosaur Jr. set (including lyrical timbre) Pumpkin Buzzard then leaps onto a dancefloor of hip-hop rhythms and fuzzed-out, dissonant guitar; lyrics all a rappin' in the meanwhile. And as for using, 'Incy Wincy Spider' as the melody for a song... From avant-indie-punk, to crooning emo, to Mr. Bungle wrongness, it's a fusillade (at the end especially where one truly understands the concept of hemi-demi-semi-quavers). ...They're pretty sonically disturbed to fashion intense death metal with a squeal and hardly any distorted guitar... Guitar, bass, electronic drums and effects, and the tenor of the vocalist, all are recorded at a commendable fidelity and the recording is crisp and wide, balanced and captures the best of the band, which if not caught would make Mantis Antler unbearable. It is, but oddly attractive to warrant hunting down any other material.' - Heathen Harvest LYRICS: 01. New Return (70 bpm) I know you saved me In the place where the sun shines down, I know You can't refuse me Now I forever belong to you I'm cruising the strip With the gun in my mouth Rain in my ears It's a love I can't do without Don't need no new return 'Cause I'm done with life You can't refuse me Because you know I'm right Now I'm leaving 'Cause all the feeling's gone I thought you saved me But I guess I was wrong I'm cruising the strip Driving in the wrong lane (with no headlights) They found my body The car was never found 02. Joy Scissors (80 bpm) Help me to reverse myself Temporary surge right through me I just need a little more time Break out of this magic spell Cutting into me with your joy scissors Hey how are today and How do I deflate my fate Look I know I'm in a box Stop let me extrapolate Fluorescent bulb Exquisite glub 03. Yellow Saucer (90 bpm) Hey mama, what you doin'?

Happy Ocean (130 bpm) Woke up drunk Cool summer breeze in my hair Sand in my mouth Feet on fire Walked past your building No one was there Ate some concrete Throat full of hair Ain't it true, ain't it true I can't even see you I guess you're right I'm going down for the last time You're not there I'm still on fire I don't care about nothing no more I can't stop the feeling But the feeling's sure stopping me I can't even see you I'm on fire for you 08. Armored Dolphin (140 bpm) There's a dolphin and he's hanging out downtown He's wearing armor and he's wearing it all around I wonder what kind of armor it is Hi, I'm the dolphin - yes it's me I come from the deep blue sea Hello dolphin, now tell me what's your name From an ancient tomb in outer space He annihilates the human race When people die and he hears them cry He's happy The dolphin says he's just trying to make friends He won't use his powers for nefarious ends I wonder if I can trust his promise The dolphin unveils his futuristic weaponry And reveals that humans are his sworn enemy I wonder if we'll make it out alive 09. Natural Beauty (150 bpm) You say that there is nothing to do about it I say that it is realistic and destructive You have a beauty that is real I've become an electric eel You say that you have something to do that's better This way you say that robots can live forever You say that you think it's time for me to go I say that I should absolutely know You have a beauty that I cannot deny Today we have awakened the fear inside 10.

Sunset Love (250 bpm) Miles and miles above the earth In a cocoon of love and dirt Shining discs circle the moon A sign of impending doom The sun sets on my brain Goat king from above Take away my pain Fill with your love Sunset love Tracking device in my tooth Memories from my youth Reports of outbreaks of wolves Normal humans growing hooves Wolves eating children Children eating wolves I can't blame the wolf right now Death had to begin somehow I know the end is coming fast The goat king has arrived at last 20. Delight Bulb (260 bpm) We summon up delight bulb late at night The darkness comes to take away the light But no one knows what's lurking in my mind Suddenly there was a gust of wind No one knows what's lurking in my mind People try to ask me all the time No one knows that I'm outside of time People try to look inside my mind When people say that death is on the prowl I'm watching them with the eyes of an owl Deep beneath the earth it starts to snow The light inside my mind is really loud Delight bulb - Don't try to kill me 21. Lucky Cone (270 bpm) 22. Lovely Girl (280 bpm) When I knew you With the cities on fire Cut me open I'm a frame of wire In the blackout My faith's devout Outside of time You're amplifine The light of day Oh, lovely girl, take me away Come closer The world's on fire The end is near You are a liar 23. Southern Miracle (290 bpm) In the last days of the earth I delivered you from birth We become a race of fish I deny you your last wish Meteor from the sky Rock 'n' roll will never die Waves are crashing on the shore Super powers I adore I live in the finest maze I'm the rebel, I'm the slave 24. Edge of Your Mind (300 bpm) It will keep you on the edge of your mind.
