Maxwell Heilman Though still not a household name, TOI has become the stuff of legend for Detroit hardcore veterans and connoisseurs of fringe music, which explains the buzz their impending comeback left in its wake. Skar Cymbals may not sport the suicidal ferocity of …And Then There Was Motion, but definitely proves the longevity of interesting music and the emotion that drives it. Favorite track: Culture of the Eternal Snake.

Track Name: The Alt. Light [PEER CLEAR]
I'm trying to see, the frame is shattering
Don't say it's happened before, this is only the beginning
So many ways to leave, when your family is machine
The things that you can't see
The needs you think we feel
There's no doubt it's here

The delusion will not distort my inner peace

I'm trying to see, the frame is shattering
The madness of the screen, it intervenes
Watch it swirl away, has the speed brought you peace?
Or just increased disease
The things you think we feel
There's no doubt it's here

The delusion will not distort my inner peace

No poison for the children
Our medicine is the sun

Peer clear
Your fear is here

Throned in neon
Gilded with golden glitter tears
What you feel
Distortions of what's real

Stare into the light
Don't tell me what you need
You've got no idea what's coming
The disease you've carried willingly

I'm trying to see, the frame is shattering
And you've got blame in your veins
And in your eyes—locate the hate

How about we turn that gaze
Inside
To the beast of your shame
Can you stare
Without flinching?
