"LEAVE NO TRA-A-ACE! ELIMINATE! THE HUMAN RA-A-ACE!"
"YOU ALONE ARE YOUR DISPOSAL! A LIFETIME OF STAINS, WASTING AWAY SLOWLY DOWN THE DRAIN! NO MERCY, NO REPRISAL, NO SECOND CHANCE!"
"UNDER THE SUN AND IN THE LIGHT OF DAY, WE THROW THIS ALL AWAY! INSTINCTUAL DEVOTION TO ANNIHILATION! ERADICATION, MASS PREDATION - MANUFACTURED EXTINCTION! THE POWERS THAT BE ARE YOU AND ME!"
"DEATH COMES WITH THE TIDE!"
Nightmare Fuel: EVERYWHERE. Seriously, their music (and videos) are so full of this trope that listing every last example would be truly exhausting. Some choice examples include:
"Alone at the Landfill". Dear god, just "Alone at the Landfill". This song is utter despair made form.
The effects at the beginning of "Tooth Enamel and Concrete". It's just Travis screaming incoherently over a harsh noise backdrop, but it genuinely sounds like someone's mouth is being mechanically torn apart.
"The Harvest Floor/Regret & the Grave". The former serves as an intro of sorts and is an ominous ambient piece with Jarboe chanting wordlessly over it, while the latter starts with a hypnotic bassline and tribal-esque drum pattern before a very eerie cello line starts over it. Then the guitars kick in, along with Travis' roar, and you know that something's coming. It does... in the form of a ear-piercingly screechy lead riff. The whole thing borders on traumatic.
The chorus of "Your Disposal", as catchy as it is, is also deeply unsettling. Let's face it, Travis' "clean" vocals are this trope in general.
"The Monolith/Kingdom of Tyrants" has an equally traumatic music video, albeit for completelydifferent reasons.
"Dead Set On Suicide"'s high shrieks sound like a gathering of demons having their tongues ripped out. It's magnificent.
"Pacific Grim" is, in a word, apocalyptic. It's structured like the final chapter of humanity as it slides from desperation to resignation, and the song feels like a twisted funeral hymn.
Old Shame: Most of their pre-Harvest material, and even Harvest to some degree. They seldom play anything off of the albums prior to Monolith of Inhumanity; they were playing "Testicular Manslaughter" off of To Serve Man on a regular basis for a while, but that one has been retired as of recent.
Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: "Forced Gender Reassignment." Behind the gore is a message against homophobia and transphobia, much needed in the metal community.
"Circo Inhumanitas" isn't subtle, but its message is clear: circuses are horrible, morally reprehensible entities whose abuses are so well known by now that ignorance is no excuse for going to them and anyone who does so anyways is a terrible person.
Uncanny Valley: Ryan's vocals frequently don't sound anything close to human.
