MY GAME DOESN´T HAVE A NAME (2014)
Creo que "The Sky Conspired Against Thee Before Thy Bones Had Dried" fué mi primer acercamiento a esta banda, sinceramente la canción que formaba parte de este split no resultaba del todo completa, mostraba los comienzos de Deathless con A Pregnant Light y todavía estaba por hacer. Años después siguieron cayendo, splits y Ep en los cuales no musicalmente pero si en el artwork se comenzaba a vislumbrar intereses y estética más allá de lo común dentro del black metal, sirva de ejemplo como no la de este trabajo "My Game Doesn't Have a Name", pero no es solo en cuanto a artwork en lo que el proyecto a evolucionado, musicalmente esta a años luz de sus inicios y se ha optado por una vertiente mucho más punk y hardcore dejando totalmente de lado esa variante más post-black que le acompañó en sus inicios. Como primer álbum completo desde los inicios el oyente se sorprende, sobre todo si va dispuesto a recibir una descarga de black en toda regla, y se encuentra con composiciones agresiva, no exentas de cierta melodía, con unas buenas partes de bajo y sobre todo de unas voces desgarradas, presentes en todo el álbum y rayando la perfección. Las comparaciones con grupos de post-punk, noise o post-hardcore se pueden permitir, a mi me han recordado a los vascos Lisabö en su primer álbum Ezarian, capaces de trasmitir intensidad y dolor en cada nota.

1. Unreachable Arc 03:35
If you drive down a dark highway in the middle of the night with the windows down you’ll grow wings you’ll lift up and take off into the sky I know because I’ve done it I’ve flown through every midnight and touched unreachable arcs Just to fall back down to earth, spit from the sky into the mouth of a waiting world Something has me by the back of my shirt I wanted to see, didn’t know if I could Can I place mine beside yours? Let’s make a promise when the leave this world We will go together we will walk through mirrors and be like diamonds clearer and clearer dead before thirty to stay forever in my twenties I will not be on my knees when the reaper comes I’ll be two steps ahead My love is over all I found a simple way to keep myself alive I turn the key I lock the doors and I start to drive I am young, I am proud, I am running out of time We will go together we will walk through mirrors and be like diamonds clearer and clearer will you believe the myth or will you become the myth?  
2. Born to Ruin 04:18
  Shake my glass 
remember the past 
it wasn’t that long ago 
it feels like years though 

First time in a bar in a town you don’t know 
everyone’s a cop or criminal 
or some mix of both 

Chase the light to the edge of the knife 
I’ve heard 
it’s the only way to keep things alive 
Just to see if they flinch 
do they care if they die? 

Is it worth the redemption? 
do you think that I would lie? 

Go on, try me - 
I wasn’t made to fail 
I was born to ruin 
to derail and prevail 
Sick of hearing excuses 
Sick of hearing your voice 
Where you die is your business 
Don’t make it mine 

Wrap me in the flag 
bury me deep 
this body is worthless 
my spirit needs sleep 
over the limit 
over the line 
born to ruin 
born to die 

The things that I believe 
will mean everything in the end 
I know it’s the truth because it tells me so 
It shows me in ways I could never describe 
and still the true revelation hides from my eyes.
3. Dream Addict 03:02
Fell asleep in the summer storm merciful heavens girl in bed Wrapped in white she sleeps forever she dreams of gold she dreams of me She's a burning cross on the White House lawn. I don't know what it means, I just know it's a lot Screaming like the panther on the inside of my arm she’s been known to tear, she’s been known to claw With the grace and poise of a pavement saw I cut through your heart and into your head and there I live and there you dream where we are happy where we rest in sheets It’s not easy the path we choose to walk Drive past the places we see in sleep You’ve seen me there, if only in dreams Where I took my first taste, where I broke the wheel Endless // infinite // eternal I want to fall asleep again. You saw me in your dream you close your eyes and see these things sweat the Royal Crown right out of my hair Dutch viper bite me on my ear. 
4. Endless // Infinite // Eternal 05:39
Baby will never look as good as she looks right now 
I’ll get better with age 
I’ll be silver and strong 
She will fade like the seasons 
and will never return 
I see rows of golden crosses 
I see the things we never learn 

The world as we know it is fleeting (at best) 
hardly news to anyone 
yet still we forget 
I will burn this second in my memory 
so I know it’s true 
even though I’m not sure it is 
it’s enough to make me think 
it’s enough to make me believe 
That this time is something I can truly understand 
while my heart still beats while my blood runs red 

I am endless 

I’ll always drive fast 
if I crash I want to die 
after all there’s not much for me here 
So I will yearn for the world that’s beyond. 
To see if it ended as it began.
5. My Days in Nights and You 04:04
  One candle 
two flames 
one snake 
two names 

I know you’ve probably heard things about me 
they were true 
but I promise I’ve changed 

If you could keep only one memory 
of me 
what would it be? 
A unique beauty 
in American suffering 

to my pain 
to my promise 
to my name 
my game 
won’t change 
won’t break 
won’t burn or be touched by rain 

I can’t go there, or say the name 
There is a light there, 
but it’s different than I think 

A way - make a way for me 
make a way for me 
a way in you 

One day I’ll disappear 
and I’ll never come back 
that’s what disappear means 
don’t forget that.
6. Fresh Flower Offering (Purple Night) 03:55
Always the one to never say no. Had to leave everyone behind. I love the way you walk beside me If your love was enough would it stop this madness? Some things seem too cruel to be true, like the death of a child or the fading of youth Love smells like blood and tastes like it too I told you everything you need to know about me 24-hour truck stop poetry write a line see a line feel alive with me I’m the best and brightest you’ve ever seen - and the last man you’ll ever need I like your cherry cheeks and your strawberry blood your vanilla skin and how you’re never enough I take one bite Still need more I’ll tie you up and let you know how all of this is supposed to go. I wouldn’t trade this sprig of lavender for anything I would never turn away your floral offering so precious so fragrant bend beneath the trees Find myself on midnight’s streets purple flower wreath.  
7. Circle of Crying Women 04:21
  Found to be guilty 
by a jury of 
my alleged peers 
young angry and bored 
so terribly bored 

I have nothing to show you 
nothing to see 
between you and me 
there’s a lot I’ve thrown away 
the important things, you’ll never see 

Digging through the trash in my wake 
you’ll find nothing 
so stop looking 
the secrets are here 
in the songs I sing 

The first few years will be the hardest 
Asleep, but someone still watching 

I’m so sorry 
I was something 
to many - 
but even still, 
nothing to many more 
I was a beautiful boy once 
Handsome, sweet, charming and smart 

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, 
but I have to go. 

You know that I had to go 

Somewhere over the sun 
Somewhere over the rain 

Who wouldn’t want 
a circle of crying women 
praying over their body? 
Crescent moon 
tiger-striped by clouds 
Fell apart on my way back home 
I’ll meet at “only then” 
feels good to be good 
work can be so much fun 

Songs to be heard when the 
blessing has come 
you said “when your job is done, 
my job is done.”
8. You Cut Me from a Magazine I Didn't Know That I Was In 05:03
You cut me from a magazine I didn’t know that I was in you saw me and gently traced the frame With scissors and glue at the table alone you could make anything but you’ve got business to attend to I knew you were sad I knew you weren’t you You were searching for someone You didn’t know who I removed some chains and added some new It’s the way you need to be I’m the the one you are bound 2 Life is just another thing to lose in a cluttered room but you know, you don’t have to I hit you because you wanted me to Can’t tell anyone unless it’s in song The truth is I wanted hit to you with all that I had just to see where you’d break Save it for the day when the summer fades and the roads are closed Save it for the heart the one you wear the one you guard I never set out knowing exactly where we would go I just knew somehow it was some place that we had never been before I could never leave now that I’m here it’s enough to make me think it’s where I was before I was born Still, we know this is not eternity My circle my promise around my neck forever If I should fall from this place this mark will keep me safe.   
9. Purple Light 04:17
