about

Brainoil Oakland, California

In ‘98 Greg Wilkinson started playing shows with a drum machine, bass, circuit bent noise generators while singing under the moniker MrBrainoil. Playing gigs solo during that time would come to an end in early 2000 when Nathan Smith would join on guitar. Later that year, Ira Harris would round the lineup on drums to its final and only formation changing its moniker to Brainoil. ... more

Track Name: Preface to Madness
Remnants above scathed beyond repair.
Concrete walls, a sepulcher for the living.

Existence below the ground.
Escape from radiation.
Blind of time. A preface to madness.
The light was swallowed.

Humankind waits to rot as they spend the air.
Carbon Dioxide fills the bunkers.
Death uses no discretion when it’s time to kill.
The last will suffocate within this hell.

Dank prison, tangled fabric. Woven, serpentine eyes.
Corrupted stream, poisoned signal, sinuous lies.

Humankind waits to rot as they spend the air.
Carbon Dioxide fills the bunkers.
Death uses no discretion when it’s time to kill.
The last will suffocate within this hell.

Clawed talons extracting. Distorted faces sag through the floor
Next chapter’s trapping. Bit stacking gadgets of war.
Hollow, blank static void
Track Name: Corrosive Ribbons of Light
Obscured automaton, measured infinity
Metered eternity, panacea mirage

Flawless immutable fantasy, punitive punishment
Hollow, shallow, panoramic pixel maze. Mortal abstraction.
Corrosive ribbons of light hypnotize. The virus consumes a new host.

Vast void, corporate arcology. Walled garden, privilege bubble
Blue halo, digitally pacified. Proselytize prophecy
Invalidated false construct. Curtain shroud ideal.
Fame trend fallacy

Vultures consume reality. Mental terraforming meets completion. Codes store experience while organic matter decomposes. New data erases existence.
Track Name: The Specter's Vile Hand (The Shock Doctrine)
A fetid stench fills the air while locked inside this vault. Room filled with bodies. Maggots occupy the dead.

Transfixed iridescent eyes stare upon the corpses. Many days have drained. Flies feed upon the dead.

A spectral warfare has been lost.

Sentience of mankind wanes.
Corporate anesthesia.

A spectral warfare has been lost.

The Spectre of our past descends its vile hand. Riddled with deceit, bodies accumulate.
Natural disaster transforms to opportunity.
Once the air is clear, There’s new land to exploit.
Track Name: Singularity to Extinction
Corpses marching through silicon.
Orange hue, smoldering repugnant blue sheen.
Perfectly bound, tedious and taut.

Lifeless noise echoes in the vacuum.
Uniform disease. Singularity to extinction.

Lens shard sarcophagus.
Obscured shadows, pixelated faces.
Woven searing frigid embrace.

Lifeless noise echoes in the vacuum.
Uniform disease. Singularity to extinction.

Disembodied consciousness, consensual hallucination.
Shattered dissent, binary servitude.

Illuminated Scalpels slice through the retina.
A vacuous portal unearthed.
Individuality Disemboweled.
Track Name: Blank Static Void
Electron filled screens.
Collection of exploits.

Vile expanse. The skies are littered.
Surveillance, Glass eyes are watching.
Organic automatons hemorrhage in the aether.
Slavery bound by one’s own hand. Embrace the shackles.

Fortress infinite expanding, human data wasteland
Decimated war torn vastness of solitude

Blinding logic lattice unfolds across a blank static void
Decimation. Torrent monolithic, inferno.
Charge maelstrom awakens. Increasing velocity never satisfied
Track Name: Recursion Abyss
Free admission, inextricable sacrifice. Traced, tagged, a metrics integer defined.
Fractured fragments resurrected. Shattered tokens assembled.
Traced, tagged, monotonous execution misery.

Enslaving human data. Pivot thrashing recursion abyss.
Life’s blood serfdom. Corrupted binary delirium.

Square miles devouring. Soot-choked hydro-injected.
Corrosive ribbons of light. Spitting, churning, blockchain stacked.

Automated race to the bottom. Grand showcase, hacked sacrifice.
Divine oblation, infinitesimally sliced.

Images deceive as shadows and lies. Aesthetic surface, substance denied.
Hollow, shallow, sheeple herd trapping.

Enslaving human data. Pivot thrashing recursion abyss.
Life’s blood serfdom. Shadow strings pulled, addiction coursing.
Duplicitous, expedited, scrounged scrap assembly.
Fractured fragments resurrected, shattered tokens assembled.
Traced, tagged, monotonous execution misery.
Track Name: Halcyon Desolation
Cruciform, halcyon desolation. Concave, refracting light
Dogmatic safety blanket. Pious rigid minds
Stale thought virus. Poisoned spaces

Shallow breaths spasm. Taste of blood mixed with iron oxide.
Corrupted corridors lined with cells. Lifeless organisms animated without coherence.
Forced life sentence. Life is prison: Sleep is parole: Death is freedom.

Fake smile jail cells. Cloud haze darkness
Cord stacked corpses. Economic copulation
