sweter I don't wanna take easier path by comparing Ghostchant with other great Budapest metal/hardcore bands starting with, for myself one of the finest band, Newborn for example... And there's a big reason why it resonates in my mind very loudly! Of course it's the music, but even more it's about the message! And Ghostchant continues to bring goosebumps.
Heavy, dark, haunting and disturbing. Cold madness, full of hidden energy waiting to be released. A poison arrow which will open your eyes... Favorite track: Foundations.

Track Name: Conquest
This never-ending infiltration
To live our lives in blind sedation
Mesmerized, kept in the dark
Idly we watch our lives slip by

Exploit the poor, rob them blind
Broken nations stripped of human rights
Exploit the poor, rob them blind
The lepers migrate for better lives

The lepers, the leeches
We strive to survive
Broken and beaten
Slaves to the grind
When everything’s taken
Where’s solace to be found

Staring down the barrel of a gun
Held to our heads by the systems
That failed us
Say the word, lay the blame
So we can be laid to waste

Thrown aside
Hung to dry
To make ends meet
Is not within our right

Exploit the poor, rob them blind
Broken nations stripped of human rights
Exploit the poor, rob them blind
The lepers migrate for better lives

The lepers, the leeches
We strive to survive
Broken and beaten
Slaves to the grind
When everything’s taken
Where’s solace to be found

Staring down the barrel of a gun
Held to our heads by the systems
That failed us
Say the word, lay the blame
So we can be laid to waste
Track Name: Transitions
In these trying
Times of traditions
Dying

Failed, blamed
Starved out and shamed
By systems designed
As unmarked mass graves

Will these transitions bring
The swansong
Of everything
We have feared
Or everything
We held dear
Held dear
Held dear
Held dear

In these trying
Times of transitions
Thriving

Resist, deny
Exist, survive
The structures designed
To abandon all lives

Will these transitions bring
The swansong
Of everything
We have feared
Or everything
We held dear
Held dear
Held dear
Held dear

From nightmares awoken
Battered and broken
Yearning
Thirsting
We await the end
The end of the world
The end of the world as we knew it
Track Name: Éhínség
Nem maradt itt senki más
Csak néhány naiv idióta
Ebből a zuhanó repülőből
Már régen kiszállt a pilóta

Beárazták az életünk
Aprópénzért létezünk
Nemzeti színű kötéllel
A nyakunk körül
Éhezünk

Zokszó nélkül menetelünk
Szépen sorban a halálba
Ha megérkeztünk a zászlód majd
Kitűzheted anyádra

Fuldoklunk
Süllyedünk
Jelöletlen kopjafák alatt
Eltemettetünk
Track Name: Foundations
When the ideals of democracy are
Intertwined with hypocrisy
We’re barely afloat
In agony we drown
(And) the vultures gathered to gloat

So eager to set
This world on fire
We fail to see
(Our) convictions burn
As the flames are getting higher

So eager to tear
This world apart
We fail to see
That brick by brick
These walls will pierce the skies

These are
The foundations
To the walls
Of new nations

Marginalize
Victimize
Paralyze
Police the thought
Marginalize
Victimize
Paralyze
A generation lost

So eager to set
This world on fire
We fail to grasp
For air
As the noose is getting tighter

So eager to redraw
All the borders
We fail to hear
Our voices
As we’re barking out new orders

These are
The foundations
To the walls
Of new nations

Marginalize
Victimize
Paralyze
Police the thought
Marginalize
Victimize
Paralyze
A generation lost

These are the foundations
Built on shaky ground
This is the flagship of a nation
Comprised
Of liars all around
