GeN2Mo Sludgy, bass-heavy riffing, dark but catchy melodies, passionate varied vocals and quite some interesting variations in elements and mood over the course of the album are complimented by an interesting air of carthartsis that vibrates through the songs as they progress. At least I felt that way.
Absolutely impressive work, especially for a one man project. Favorite track: Empty Husk.

Philipp Fischer This record literally feels alive. It's raw, natural and authentic and something to look up to. Give it a listen, all of it, in one go. It has everything I'd want in a modern metal record - groove, crushing riffs, creepy interludes and tons of surprises that'll keep your ears entertained. Caynug/10, would listen again. Favorite track: Nobody.

about

Caynug Germany

Caynug is an continuous one man project by multi instrumentalist Dominik Kowalczyk.

I am Dominik K. I've been doing music since I was 13 where I quickly learned how to record and express my feelings through music.

Most of my music tends to have a melancholic vibe, that's how I like it. This is music from my heart, to your ears. Enjoy!

Track Name: Intro
Nobody, nobody

How can I put my faith in the people who drag me down?

Dig myself out of this graveyard
Hell, I've fallen into.
I will pull myself up
I will not be, held down.
Track Name: Empty Husk
Get out of this place
Start all over
Throw it all away
Lead the way
Fall apart
Lay the cards
Run away
Far away

Inside I burn
I need to turn
At next opportunity
Ignore who stays

I try to change
Facing this wall
That I cant
break down

Who is there for me?
Who can make me feel?
Make me feel alive
And take me away?

I wanna leave this place
Abandon this lonely mess.
But no one can help me
I am all alone.

Get out of this shell
Leave this place
Come to life
Shine through the faccade

Leave behind
Everything
Run away
From the fog

Get out of this place
Start all over
Throw it all away
Lead the way
Track Name: Overcome
I see
the fire burning.

Awaken
and look upon yourself.

Scarred
in both mind and body
I refused to face the truth

No more
I will not look away.
It hurts
I will overcome the pain
I'm done
I will go my path

No more
Lies
I will overcome the pain

Pushed to the edge
I start to fight back
Against everything that's dragging me down

I won't give up
I won't settle for less
I will not look away

I will not
Put the blame on someone else

I will not
See my dreams burn down again

I will not
Surrender to the pressure

I will not
Be ruled by the past

I will
Be awaken

I will
Not look away

Pushed to the edge
I start to fight back
Against everything that's dragging me down

I won't give up
I won't settle for less
I will not look away

I will face the world head on
I will move on, get over my own insignificance
Track Name: Imperfection
From cradle to grave, we remain imperfect
An endless struggle to become the ideal

We remain imperfect beings
We remain imperfect beings

An endless struggle to become the ideal

All beauty decays. Everything will rot and die
What will you sacrifice to sastain the illusion?
What will die for your colorless rose?
What will die for your colorless life?
What will die for your colorless rose?
What will die for your colorless life?

Enclose yourself within a shell, hide inside your mind,
close your eyes and ears, and retain your ideal

Hide behind excuses, hide behind the lies you tell yourself to get through another day

I walk away
I try to walk away
Track Name: Lies Aside
I am all on my own
Can't change a thing
These burdens won't go away

I am all on my own
Can't change a thing
These burdens won't go away

If it's just for one day
Make it go away
I can't resist to think
The same way I can't resist to breathe

Yesterday felt so far away
So much time in-between

I am all on my own
Can't change a thing
These burdens won't go away
Track Name: Shattered (Chubsnug cover)
Stepping into battle so calmly
Like a bullet cant harm me
One man army, urban battlefield prodigy
Cant no legion disarm us
Like the nations cant harm us
Aint no force that can stop us
Even hell dont want to toss

Tank divisions
Wishing the bullets missing
And bitches are often tripping
Spitting for television

BOOM
Get it get it, lets take it from the top
We all fallin off, now
BOOM
Hitting on the rock
Bottom of my socks
Lost like fort knox

Now im gonna take me some downtime
Let my head unwind
Relax my damn mind
And cook up a dope rhyme
Cut me a fat line
So hard its a damn crime
Move on the inside
Take your house party outside

Turn the script on the flipside
Start with lyrical genocide
You'll see this on prime time
No such thing as homicide

BOOM
Get it get it, lets take it from the top
We all fallin off, now
BOOM
Hitting on the rock
Bottom of my socks
Lost like fort knox

Get up get up, its time to switch up
Get up get up, lets run a mock
Get up get up, lets take it of the top
Get up get up, lets fuck some shit up

We, all, fallin, off
Hit, rock, bot-tom, not
Kil-ling, to, stay alive
Grew, up, in, these lies
Track Name: Internalized
I felt the weight coming down at me
I can't stand the pressure thats building up in me
It's a choice I can't make
All the results will be fake

Will I die?
Is it over?
Will I cry?
I feel like noone

Are you there?
Am I alone?
Where to go?
What to do?

Synapses turning into electrical shocks
Thoughts turning into a liquified mind

I can't take it
I relive it

Fuck, you, bitch, liar
Fuck, you, bitch you are lying
Track Name: Aftermath
Fuck
Track Name: Fault
Feeling, defeated, inner, self, heated
burning, my mind, abducted and corrupted
Feel it, changing, must, resist

Needed, wanted, taken, shaken
Walking, confronting, questioning, answering
Feel it, changing, must resist
Track Name: Nobody
Nobody
Track Name: Remain Silent
It's over, I shall retreat into a hole of darkness
Get myself back into a time
Where words still ment something
And where the light shines

I don't regret the decisions I've made
I won't change anything at all
You spoke words of wisdom
But your words won't mean it all

Another day spent in this dark hole
Chained up against my own mind
Make these lying voices disappear

You spoke words of wisdom
But your words won't mean it all
Nothing at all
Nothing at all

Well you spoke words of wisdom
But your words won't mean it all
Nothing at all
Nothing at all

Your words won't mean it all
Your words won't mean it all
Nothing
Nothing at all

But your words won't mean it all
But your words
Won't mean it all

And now I remain silent
Track Name: What's Left
I asked why but the answer is clear
Things keep flowing, thoughts keep flowing
Reminds me of what I have when I feel sheltered
I still got my life, my motivation to move

I think I found my path
My destiny to move on
From which everyone can gain
And I won't retreat
This is a path that I need to beat
Turn up the heat
Im ready to go, ready to fly
I feel it, I take it
I feel it, I take it

I know where to go
I know what to do
I start to realize
I will move on

I think I found my path
My destiny to move on
From which everyone can gain
And I won't retreat
This is a path that I need to beat
Turn up the heat
Im ready to go, ready to fly
I feel it, I take it
I feel it, I take it
Track Name: My Path
I can feel
And as I woke up
I realized the truth
No weight from these burdens
No sorrow from these feelings

I walk towards this gate
Far away from all the hate
I build my own meaning in life
A path that will cost alot
Track Name: I Found My Way
I found my way
I found my way
I wish I could stay
Up high in the storm

I found my way

I found my way
I found my way
I wish I could stay
Up high in the storm
