Bezza I slept on this for a while after downloading it but i need to slap myself, this is soooo good! Sorta in that post-rock-punk-metal vein with bands like Lo! and Bateman

about

BOWCASTER Melbourne, Australia

Bowcaster is a high-yield, rumbling spread of distortion and rock'n'roll destruction performed with blistering rhythmic precision. Awash with an oil slick of white noise guitarism and repeatedly razing venues to the ground, this five-piece encapsulate in sound and lyrics of the original trilogy we all hold dear to our hearts. ... more

Track Name: Luminous Beings Are We
Young man you're in such a rush, focus, unlearn
Concentrate, this energy flows through us, we are luminous
It surrounds, it binds us, penetrates, it's between you and me
Between the rock and the tree and the ship, it's between you and me

Remember your failure
Track Name: Battle In The Snow
prepare for ground assault on the snow
AT-AT Snow-speeder melee
Yavin proves you're defeatable

You'll never take us without a fight

Blasters won't work
Armour too thick
Gotta think, gotta think
Tow cables just might work!

Metal beasts, bring 'em down
One by one, we'll take them out
Go round, and round
To the fucking ground

You'll never take us without a fight

Fight this ground assault on the snow
AT-AT Snow speeder melee
You're not invincible
Track Name: Kashyyyk
Kashyyyk
Oh shit
Destroyed
By Sith

Oh Hell
Wookies
Defend
The end

Rebellion!

Kashyyyk
Oh shit
Destroyed
By Sith

Warfare
Dispair
Freedom
Fight on!
Track Name: Dark Side
Give in (fear)
Give in (anger)
Give in (hate)
Give in give in give in give in give in

Give in (darkness)
Give in (power)
Give in (empire)
Give yourself to the

Dark side!
Track Name: Prologue Song (Part 1)
It is a period of civil war
Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base
have won their first victory
against the evil Empire.

Our spies stole the secret plans
to the ultimate weapon, a Death Star to destroy an entire planet...


It is a dark time for the Rebellion
Imperial troops persue our forces across the galaxy
The evil lord, obsessed,
has dispatched thousands of probes into the far reaches of space...


In secret, the empire constructs another
new armored space station
even more powerful
than the first dreaded Death Star

this ultimate weapon will spell certain doom
for all rebels struggling to restore freedom to the galaxy...
Track Name: Death Mark
Death mark
The walls are closing in
Not an easy thing to live with
Death mark

The walls are closing in
In more ways than one
Just trying to stay alive
Everyday he lives with a

Death mark
The walls are closing in
Not an easy thing to live with
Death mark

Dark forces closing in
Gotta stay point 5 past light speed
Even if it means leaving you behind
And he will not give in

Death mark (the walls are closing in)
Track Name: Battle of Yavin
Attack positions
In the battle of Yavin
Along this trench we fly

Rogue squadron
Will not falter
Along this trench we fly

Stay on target

All or nothing
In a battle for freedom
Along this trench we fly

Chain reaction
Destroy this terror
Along this trench we fly

Our lives meant nothing 'til now
Track Name: Your Fleet is Lost
In time you will call me master

Oh i'm afraid the deflector shield will be quite operational when your friends arrive

Strike me down with all your hatred and your journey to the dark side will be complete

Your fleet is lost and your friends on the Endor moon will not survive

If you will not be turned, you will be destroyed
You will pay the price for your lack of vision

It is unavoidable, it is your destiny
Young fool; only at the end do you understand
Track Name: Twin Suns
Oh Tatooine, how long I've known you
Oh my home, how i've outgrown you

The endless Dune Sea
No respite from the dust and the sand - there's nothing here for me

All my dreams lie in between the twin suns of Tatooine, and all my friends, have left to join the academy - they've gone and joined, the Rebellion
Track Name: Dark vs. Light
You've got some ideas that i don't like
When it comes down to it, it's the dark versus the light
Tighten your grip and we slip through your fingers
Your rules don't work for us, it's true

Good and evil
A balanced force
Rebel upheaval
It's a clear choice

You've got some ideas that i don't like
When it comes down to it, it's the dark versus the light
Tighten your grip and we slip through your fingers
Your rules don't work for us, it's true

Good and evil
A balanced force
Rebel upheaval
It's a clear choice

The Dark versus the Light
