The Poacher Diaries

by Agoraphobic Nosebleed / Converge



In late 1999, AGORAPHOBIC unleashed PCP Torpedo (Hydra Head), a scathing barrage of derangement nicely done up as a six-inch slab o' wax. Then, with Relapse proposing the idea of a split release, The Poacher Diaries surfaced, seeing ANb align themselves with Boston’s CONVERGE, delivering a split CD of massive proportions. Strong-arm man Hull’s dexterous guitar warfare fused with decimating drum programming and voracious vocal vortexes. The CD met to a huge response, introducing both bands’ fans to new and interesting sounds.


released October 26, 1999

Track Name: Agoraphobic Nosebleed - Mantis
the world looks like a finger painting done with
broken hands i saw the last mantis today eat its own
head and fuck itself into nothing into nothing i'm
told that we had hands once and we started carrying
knives now we have knives instead so even when we try
to embrace we stabe learn to lick your wounds for the
taste learn to lick your wounds for the taste
Track Name: Agoraphobic Nosebleed - Center of the Hive
encoded transmissions spun out of control bring the
purging insurrection of fals consciousness custodians
of the agenda secure the contaminated areas your own
evil your own good obsolete 1000 seed a clouded
descent straight to the center of the hive labyrinth
suspended by high-tension wires that reach upward to
the sky

Track Name: Agoraphobic Nosebleed - Pentascam Constellation
your hope collapsed like a burning orphanage under the
weight of their expectations it must seem routine for
you now snowing in their spit languishing in their

healing only the slowing of decay i've heard they
still smile in their world perhaps you will go there
someday and destroy their happiness
Track Name: Agoraphobic Nosebleed - Bed of Flies
all circumstance is sabotage that which does not kill
us makes us stranger command chaotic brute force the
stars in your eyes stolen reprogrammed another

live in the towers they put thoughts in my head making
me sin while sinning through me mold the little shit
figure make it dance break its legs they call it
building character a villain to be exact
Track Name: Agoraphobic Nosebleed - Destroyed
i wage an unholy war against your fucked up soul the
shattered illusions of a thousand nightmares preserved

urine dripping from your stigmata the stench that
surrounds you gives you away and the evil moisture
that you secrete no lie no shit this is fucking war
