The Restitution Kansas City, Missouri

The Restitution is an ambitious progressive metal project from Kansas City, Missouri. Striving to stray from the norm of stringing together breakdown after breakdown, the band aims instead to create music that is intentionally cohesive and purposeful. Sonically, the band draws from an eclectic set of influences, drawing sounds from folk, jazz as well as electronic music. ... more

Track Name: Swarm
The cure for my disease waits patiently
Closely guarded, her light breaks on me

My aim is true, and eyes are wary
The blessed fruit lies just beyond reach
Barred by fire and barb
My breath becomes a blaze

Breathe in her shadow, taste its unmaking wake
This dazzling dark hollows out my chest

Black fury spirals through this brittle architecture
Subdued, the fibers let go their tethered bonds

Breathe in her shadow, taste its unmaking wake
This dazzling dark hollows out my bones

Her absence, now woven into my skin
Has marked me an omen to all
She burns in their veins
And leaves me devoured

As I immerse in clouds of teeth
Her light, in blinding brilliance
Withdraws the air once left to me
Track Name: Muad'Dib
The poison is thin, as it spreads in our minds
So subtle and strange, yet familiar as our own
Its shape our atmosphere, expanding to the stars
'Til soon it overcomes, and no other breath exists

I see, I feel it stir
The fear that kills the mind

Its paralysis, has taken me
As it seeps into my veins
It guides my hands, and shapes my lips
And though I look for escape, it's out of reach

They follow my steps, as I follow the fear
Together we go, where resistance is thin
It swells all around me, and grows to violence
Oh, it must be stopped, before the fall

They’ll tear down everything, piece by piece
For the “greater good,” they'll shed the weaker parts of us
I hold the keys to free them from their fear
But still my hands are trembling

So finally it's come--it's here; convergence is at hand
The fate of worlds, of stars, has rested on these hands
And I stood by and watched the fall of galaxies
When all this time I knew, but did nothing
