This is the first proper CD release (discounting previous demo's and split compilations) by the band which came out in 2004.Previously,an EP was planned in 2002 when the band was in a period of experimenting phase in musical direction which drift apart from what use to be Technical Death Metal which was evident in the late 90's demo cassette tapes with a different line-up but even before the EP was given a final mix,the band decided to shelve and abandon the project.(3 songs from that 2002 EP was re-recorded and re-arranged for this mini CD.)'Social Misery' mini CD was a sort of a 'come back' to it's death metal roots with hints of variations from their previous 'experimental' phase.This also marks the last recordings to feature Rudi Rosmawan on vocals and also drummer Razali and bassist Wadi whom joined the band in 2000.(Although Wadi did rejoined the band later and recorded two singles during his brief involvement with the band between 2010 - 2011)

Track Name: Visions Of The Paranormal
I'm half asleep but not awake
My mind is confuse and emotionally raped
Could not believe the things i've seen
Don't wanna know,just wanna be free

My eyes could see the other world
Slowly my visions began to twirl
It's like a dream but yet so real
Able to see but couldn't feel

Echoed voices in my head,it's calling me
It's nothing that i have create,no one believes
The shadow now approaches me,it couldn't be
In front of me and touches me,but i can't feel

Can't explain the state i'm in
It's not a game where you could lose or win
You cannot see the things i've seen
People don't understand what i mean
Track Name: Social Misery
Reflect yourself before you make a remark unto the others
As a human being,don't think that you're always right
Or you're above all others

Social misery caused by people like you
Hurting peoples mind with your attitude
Poisoning people's mind,hiding from the truth

Well I don't care and not even afraid
Nor will I kneel upon you
I would ignore the accusations made
I just believe my own self

Social misery cause by people like you
Dissing everyone making your own rules
Criticizing yet nothing you can prove
Social misery,all blames on you

No unity,hypocrisy,all I can see is jealousy
Red is the eyes,pain in the hearts,of the success of one's achieve
Pathetically accusing others with your endless lame remarks
When can we see any progress if this attitude carries on

Wake up your mind,face up reality
Your ways will not always work
Cleanse your mind,cleanse your emotions
Ending the social misery
