about

Fall Of Olympus West Palm Beach, Florida

Fall of Olympus lies somewhere on the fine line between Death Metal and Thrash Metal. Their sound has been described as being "in an epic battle with gravity" by Arielle Castillo of the Miami New Times, as well as "intense as it is infectious" by Scott Sykora of Pesky Jezter Promotions.

Fall of Olympus has shared the stage with Dying Fetus, Cattle Decapitation, The Misfits and more.

Track Name: Free From Tomorrow
Consumed by the venom coursing through my veins
A poisonous substance seeping out my pores
Drenched in fury, my skin reeks of hate
Got to cleanse myself of this hostile infection
Have to stop the source, need to kill the heart
Flush out the darkness with the light of the flash

All of my hatred compelling me to end myself
All of my hatred telling me to take you with me (now)

Sickened by the thought of your survival
To let you go on and continue to breathe
The embodiment of what makes me ill
I can not allow this, I have to correct this
Need to paint the walls with our blood and tears
Silence the screaming with the taste of the steel

All of my hatred compelling me to end myself
All of my hatred telling me to take you with me
All of my hatred compelling me to end myself
All of my hatred telling me to take you with me, now

The only way out is through a hole in head

My hatred
Track Name: Here to Destroy
When this started we had nothing to loose
No goal in mind, no statement to be made
We just needed an excuse to make noise
Now this beast has a hunger to feed

There’s no hope to stop us
This juggernaut of sound
You can beg for silence
And you’ll find it exhaling your last breath

We came here to destroy
Annihilate, no survivors
We came here to destroy
Incinerate, then we dance in your ashes
Here to destroy, that’s a threat and a promise
Here to destroy, we will kill you all

This band is family, my brothers in arms
And I would die fighting for each of their lives
They would do the same, it’s called respect
A love unknown by you mercenary punks

Governed by greed and doubt
Apostates in the end
See the fear in your eyes
When your crew leaves you supine in our path

We came here to destroy
Annihilate, no survivors
We came here to destroy
Incinerate, then we dance in your ashes
Here to destroy, that’s a threat and a promise
Here to destroy, we will kill you all

Break your fucking neck

Those who fear us follow
Those who obstruct will die
They can pray for mercy
But their gods will not be there to grant it

We came here to destroy
Annihilate, no survivors
We came here to destroy
Incinerate, then we dance in your ashes
Here to destroy, that’s a threat and a promise
Here to destroy, we will kill you all
Track Name: Article of Faith
Express your love through guilt and fear
To appease what isn’t there
Just go ahead and bow your head in shame
The clouds, they don’t have cares
Just gases and vapors condensed together in the troposphere
There is no treasure, no paradise
Make the best of life; this is all you’re getting

(I will never) Need a god, ideology looming over me (I will never)
(I will never) Deny myself my faith is self, my one true strength (I will never)

As creatures of habit we journey for answers
Which is why it’s troubling when people settle for hope
To believe our existence has no shades of gray
A colorless word with no real hope in sight

(I will never) Need a god or theology looming over me (I will never)
(I will never) Deny myself my faith is self, my one true strength (I will never)

You must ask yourself where will you be when your gods have left your
Eyes wide open

(I will never) Need a god, ideology looming over me (I will never)
(I will never) Deny myself my faith is self, my one true strength (I will never)
Track Name: Liquid Dedication
This is for the ones we love
Life long bounds beyond the blood
To all our families and friends
With us to the very end

We’ll fucking drink to that that (Hell yeah)

To the ones who stab of backs
Twist around and bend the facts
Live your world within your head
I’ll have a drink when you’re finally dead

We’ll fucking drink to that that (Hell yeah)

So raise your glass and take your shot
Track Name: Not Enough Rope
I would say, “Thanks for the memories”, but then I’d be lying to myself
The best years of my life wasted
Now, I’m left with this poison
Your dad should have never came
Saved a hundred bucks and turned you into a stain
Our lives are forever tainted
Time murders, time to return the favor

It’s a shame there’s not enough rope to hang you all and watch you
Struggle for life
There’s not enough rope to tie you all to horses, have you dragged
Screaming for death

If I only knew back then, everything that I learned in the end
Never would have shook your hand
Never looked back and kept on walking
Your mom should have used a wire
Stab your punk ass; use your fetus for key chains
Save me the disgrace of ever knowing your names

It’s a shame there’s not enough rope to hang you all and watch you
Struggle for life
There’s not enough rope to tie you all to horses, have you dragged
Screaming for death

You have earned this
You deserve this

Cold steel in your mouth
I kneel above you screaming
Tell yourself this isn’t real
My finger tenses the trigger
Track Name: Left It All Behind
I’ve forgotten we were friends before
It’s been so long since I spoke your name
But the time has come for out paths to cross
Can’t escape this coming storm

You glare at me, your eyes full of passion
My vacant stare drives you to madness
Speak your words of hostility
I remain the silent target

I know you’re hoping for my reaction
To spark the flames of our past relations
You’re dead inside and looking for substance
Caught up in the tragedy

But you can’t see I’ve lost the will to care
My thoughts of you have been nullified
I’m not sorry; I’ve just made the decision
To leave my past were it belongs

Left it all behind me
All of your drama
All of your crying
All of your bullshit
Left it all behind

You can’t haunt me

Left it all behind me
All of your bullshit
Left it all behind
Track Name: The New Satan
Creeping shadow of death
Assassin cloaked in sinner’s blood
With one thrust of the blade
Ruler of hell dethroned

Dethroned

The new Satan
Track Name: Rise to Legend
He took a stand up against the odds
Fighting for the greater cause
The battle rage and consumed his strength
Out numbered and steady pacing
A fallen man with a heavy heart
Watched as their forces swarmed
As they circled he cried out to the stars
“I’ll be damned if this is how I die”

One hundred thousand times forever curse the skies

There comes a time in everyone’s life
Where their value’s put to the test
Will you fail or will you prevail
Tell me was worth it, or all for nothing?
Were you true, determine and loyal?
In the end that’s all that matters
If you fight with all your heart
You will rise to legend

The coming dawn, the new light brings hope
Illuminating the greater cause
The blood, the sweat, the tears, the pain
Submission was not an option
A broken man with a grim future
Clung to his will to survive
And when he rose he looked up to the sky
Told god, “Fuck you, I’m alive”

One hundred thousand times forever curse the skies

There comes a time in everyone’s life
Where their value’s put to the test
Will you fail or will you prevail
Tell me was worth it, or all for nothing?
Were you true, determine and loyal?
In the end that’s all that matters
If you fight with all your heart
You will rise to legend

Fight!

(Repeat bridge/chorus)

Mark these words, “You will rise”

Rise up
Now
Track Name: A Vain Existence
Smash the surface
Reshape geography
Blacken the skies
Sunlight is for the weak
Snowflakes of ash
Winter will dominate

Find your loved ones to say goodbye

I fantasize that our demise is coming soon
I count the days

Tremble with fear
Huddled beneath the streets
Choke down the air Lungs burn and tasting blood
Lie to yourself
These are the final days

Find your loved ones to consume them

I fantasize that our demise is coming soon
I count the days
While you strive I close my eyes and dream the end
I count the days

I know you’re asking what keeps me cynic, why can’t I cheer up
What is it that inflicts a man to have these thoughts of mine?
I should be grateful to be alive, have the will to go on
Instead I mock your survival tactics and I kick the dead
Well, since you asked with such conviction to seek the truth
I despise this fucking race and I’m happy to see us go

Vile creatures, I welcome our extinction from this world
Track Name: Save Nothing
Another day wasted
Burning away with the sun
Another promise you swore to keep
A lie to yourself
Now smothered in ash
Empty words make shallow graves
For our trust in your reliance
Will you learn that procrastination leads to regrets?

Could you ever forgive yourself if you let down the ones that you loved?
How could you think to redeem yourself when your lack of action is what caused this loss

Another day wasted
Burning away with the sun
Another promise you swore to keep
A lie to yourself
Now smothered in ash

And your backs against the wall
Let go, save nothing
Take this as a warning
Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed

Another chance voided
Passed up, cast into the winds
Another moment you swore to seize
A lie to your heart, now the love has died
Father time may help to heal
But the memories meant to scar
Will you learn that procrastination leads to regrets?

Could you ever forgive yourself if you gave up the one that you loved?
How could you think to redeem yourself when your lack of action is what caused this loss

Another chance voided
Passed up, cast into the winds
Another moment you swore to seize
A lie to your heart, now the love has died

And your backs against the wall
Let go, save nothing
Take this as a warning
Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed

In this life given moments in time to define our path
Character guides the will, but only to the edge we must make the jump
Another risk, another lesson yet to live and only then will you learn that progression leads to conquest

Save nothing
Track Name: Human Waste
Weak minded fool
Degenerated, you’re stuck in the past
Intolerance guides you hand in hand
Deaf, blind and dumb
Hope is lost
Your selfish practice is too engrained
The only exit, the means to an end
Break the cycle and sever the ties

May your children rise above you
Ignore your teachings, then turn against you

Human waste, a scumfuck lord
Another bane of the earth
Fear and pride have claimed your sight
And ignorance, it coats your tongue
Preach your words of segregation
My words serve to drown you out

Feel the sting of their betrayal
Your ways have been forgot, left for the maggots

Human waste, a scumfuck lord
Another bane of the earth
Fear and pride have claimed your sight
And ignorance, it coats your tongue
Preach your words of segregation
My words serve to drown you out

Blood is blood
Whether family or strangers you meet
I don’t expect you to love your fellow man
Just give him a chance
I speak as one,
When I say that this is all in the mind
A mental bump that can be surpassed
Learn to let go, ascend from the waste
Track Name: Timeless
Spent their whole lives searching for the answers
Questioning their own existence
Where did they belong?
What was their purpose?
Or was it all just an ugly process?
Destine to be the forgotten children
Slipping through our society’s grasp
Then they heard music
They discovered the muse
Motivation found between the notes in the groove
Now they gather as a collective conscience
Expressing their love for the ones that called them
You may know these people
I know do, ‘cause I consider myself to be of the few

Everyone was lost at some point
Social outcast cut from the herd
Now, thanks to metal we are one
(Together united we stated undivided)

We are one

Everyone was lost at some point
Social outcast cut from the herd
Now, thanks to Sabbath we are one
(Together united this music is timeless)

I remember the day when I heard the message
In the back of class dreaming about rebellion
When a friend walked by with a cassette in hand
Passed me the tape, said to ask no questions
Since that day I’ve been hooked on metal
My teenage angst turned into sheer frustration
Now my hate serves as motivation
Giving me the strength to conquer it all
Now my love has a new release
Expressing myself in sync with the beat
Mold my heart from my microphone grip
Solving all my problems on a musical tip

Everyone was lost at some point
Social outcast cut from the herd
Now, thanks to metal we are one
(Together united we stated undivided)

We are one

Everyone was lost at some point
Social outcast cut from the herd
Now, thanks to Slayer we are one
(Together united this music is timeless)

Founded on a common bound
Heard in the waves of echoes
Calling out from the past
Bounded by a common love

Everyone was lost at some point
Social outcast cut from the herd
Now, thanks to metal we are one
(Together united we stated undivided)

We are one

Everyone was lost at some point
Social outcast cut from the herd
Thanks to Pantera we are one
(Together united this music is timeless)

The spirit never dies

This is a part of me
This is my history
This is a part of me
This is my destiny
