Every night They get laid to waste Innocent victims A life down the drain No soldier left behind (x3) The mission rolls on No remorse for the lost How many will suffer This mournful defeat Neglected and spit in Culture of abuse Apathy and greed Ensure their demise No soldier left behind (x3) 450 million bottles are produced every year Chugged down your throat Then left in your glass Murder! Every night They get laid to waste Innocent victims A life down the drain Neglected and spit in Culture of abuse Apathy and greed Ensure their demise No soldier left behind (x3)

Tesguino 01:06
High up in the clouds This culture so proud 100 days a year Brewing fucking corn beer TESGUINO! (x3) Made with local grass The kernels kick your ass Share it with your buds In a jar of splattered goat's blood TESGUINO! (x3) Vera! Ofrenda a dios The culture is preserved Share and respect Brew of the sacred word TESGUINO! (x4)

The same routine every Sunday I can’t avoid It won't go away The family wants me to go and pray They tell me I must be full of hate They say I need to get my life straight But to their God I just can't relate If they want me to be on board There's only one way I'll seek the Lord The only thing I worship can't be ignored St. Wenceslas - Guardian of crops He kept his people from losing all their hops Ensured their brewing would never stop St. Arnold - He stopped the plague The sacred beer No more outbreaks The blessed kettle from which they drank St. Brigid filled up a lake full of beer St. Augustine drank all his life without fear St. Nicholas watched over brewers each day These are the only ones holy to whom I can pray The Patron Saints (x2) St. Arnulf St. Gambrinus St. Luke the Evangelist They represent what is dear to us These are the only ones holy to whom I can pray

Borne of the flowing water Cared for by the Ninhursag Founding your town by the sacred lake She finished its walls for you Sacred Grain You are the one who handles the dough Mixing it up down in the pit Baking that shit in the fucking oven Noble dogs keep away potentates You are the one who soaks all the malt Waves rise and fall Spreads the mash on reed mats Coolness overcomes Holding great wort with both hands Brewing the honey wine Pour filtered beer to the collector The onrush of Tigres & Euphrates Hail Ninkasi Sumerian Goddess Blessed be thy name Hail Thee Ninkasi! (x2)

Waiting in line For a limited time You fucking asshole

Over 500 years ago Some Bavarians decided what was apropos They said that water and barley and hops Were the only things allowed in the brewer’s shops So now if I want to make my own beer We’re gonna have to make one thing clear These fascist rules are the worst I ever saw We’re gonna tear it down, yeah, we’re gonna break your laws GIVING THE BOOT TO REINHEITSGEBOT (x2) Rules of purity are so obscene Those old beers should be poured down a latrine You want to limit me to kolsch or a pilsener I won’t goosestep now, and I never will, Sir Pack up your stein -- we don’t care if you pout The old days are gone and we’re kicking you out Strapping on our boots, and we’re ready to stand Fight the Beer Nazis -- Kick ‘em right in their cans GIVING THE BOOT TO REINHEITSGEBOT (x2) We’re giving you the boot!

Swignorant 01:42
Global Upheaval A world in disrepair Nuclear Extinction The threat is in the air While you’re on your knees Praying to the Father I'll be down in The shelter Sippin’ on my bomber Fuck your world Fill my glass Ignorance Intolerance Stupidity is high Greed And corruption Our leaders always lie Bigots And fascists All can lick my ass I’ve had it with the world Outside my tulip glass Swignorant I'm staying Swignorant Got to be Swignorant I'm staying Swignorant

The Godfather -- his house is stacked The bread maker he won't take it back The Red Dragon needs a little more juice Whitesnake cranked as you cut loose The tranquilizer straight to the neck The birthday party you completely wrecked You sat calmly in the Tree Of Trust But tonight sobriety is a bust When your Trans Am needs a shine And you're feeling that it's time For some more fun IT'S SO GOOD ONCE IT HITS YOUR LIPS When you're out at night streaking But your stomach is still seeking Out a cold one IT'S SO GOOD ONCE IT HITS YOUR LIPS When you party with your troop And get to hang with Snoop-A-Loop Out the front door IT'S SO GOOD ONCE IT HITS YOUR LIPS You were headed to Home Depot But the wife, what does she know Let's have one more IT'S SO GOOD ONCE IT HITS YOUR LIPS Frank The Tank You're my boy, Blue!

Hey! Wake up all you crusties, covered in filth and mud You claim to hate the big corporations, but then you go drink Bud If someone tries to hand me a Coors, I’m gonna have to pass If you pass me a Pabst Blue Ribbon, I’ll kick your hipster ass Don’t try to tell me that you’re so D.I.Y. Don’t try to tell me your morals are so high If your favorite band was on a major label You’d be the first to ban them from your turntable If you really want to fight The Man NO CORPORATE BEER Destroy every bottle, keg and can NO CORPORATE BEER Pushing indie brewers off of the shelf Pumped up with GMOs to poison your health All the evil shit that they suppress and hide They want to brainwash you to make you to party ‘til you die If you really want to fight The Man NO CORPORATE BEER Destroy every bottle, keg and can NO CORPORATE BEER Hey, I’ve got a recipe for a brand new brew It’s called a Molotov and I’m sharing it with you Destroy every bottle, keg and can NO CORPORATE BEER

500,000 megatons drop Of punishing, devastating hops No tolerance for lagers and ales that are light Tapping into chaos with head-crushing might VICTIMS OF A BOMBER RAID (x2) Apocalyptic stouts of monstrous weight Obliterate sobriety with unparalleled hate Off in the distance you can't hear their wails All palates devastated by the heaviest of ales VICTIMS OF A BOMBER RAID VICTIMS All laid to waste by brettanomyces No one is left as far as the eye sees All destroyed after war is waged Now is the dawn of the new Barrel Age VICTIMS OF A BOMBER RAID VICTIMS!

Phony Indie labels Looking For a sale Commercial Brewers Pour ‘em In the sewers So many shitty beers all across this planet It doesn't make a difference if you bottle or can it If you're having beer problems I feel bad for you, son I've got 99 problems but a beer ain’t one Start-up Brewing Investments Ensuing For all The wrong reasons You're Committing treason So many shitty beers all across this planet It doesn't make a difference if you bottle or can it If you're having beer problems I feel bad for you, son I've got 99 problems but a beer ain’t one Hit me! Sellout Pending Street cred Ending So many beer choices Out on the shelf I'm gonna take my business Somewhere else So many shitty beers all across this planet It doesn't make a difference if you bottle or can it If you're having beer problems I feel bad for you, son I've got 99 problems but a beer ain’t one

Proost-Op 00:54
Sick in the head Lost and confused Only craving shitty Cheap as fuck brews Then I found a way To correct my thinking A simple operation To adjust my way of drinking When they pulled the scab Off my throbbing brain I could not control my thirst For well-fermented grain Never will stop Craving all hops Comfortably Proost-Op

To The Pint 00:52
Shut up and drink your beer I'm trying to have fun that's why we're here No macho bullshit No fucking laments Shut up and drink No offense Pick up your glass Pour down your throat To The Fucking Pint

Endless talk Nothing to say Always in my face Always in my way Did you ever stop to think You’re the reason that I drink Useless facts Useless figures Your talk makes me Want to pull the trigger Did you ever stop to think You’re the reason that I drink

I can tell before you walk through the door Another motherfucker trying to settle the score So pent up with hate, won’t even give us a chance Before placing your order - you've blogged all your rants Spent your money, just to talk some shit Harassing employees, now you're throwing a fit Garbage human, fuckin' give us a break Before we jump the counter for everyone's sake I can't help the fact you hate yourself And trolling others makes you feel like a man Fuck your false sense of entitlement Give us respect and you'll get it back Garbage Human Pour out your pint you fucking troll Get out of our store Jobber asshole

Waiting in line To fill up your stein You fucking asshole

Never saw it coming Should have started running No one we can trust Douchebag jocks in a flashy tour bus The gates are open The wolves are here Shut down the kegs Hide all the beer (x2) High ABV All they want to see Only want a buzz Makes me wish I could call the fuzz The gates are open The wolves are here Shut down the kegs Hide all the beer (x2) Co-opting our culture Descending like vultures All in bed with InBev I should care, but whatev Unlike you I have nothing to prove I'll still be here when you move on Time to sanitize Force them all outside Your culture is obscene Get the fuck out of our scene! The gates are open The wolves are here Shut down the kegs Hide all the beer (x2)

about

Los Angeles craft beer connoisseurs TRAPPIST brew forth their highly-anticipated, debut full-length Ancient Brewing Tactics. Formed in 2014 and consisting of scene legends Chris Dodge (Spazz, ex-Infest, ex-Despise You, etc.), Phil Vera (Crom, Despise You, ex-(16)-) and Ryan Harkins (co-owner of popular heavy metal-themed burger joint Grill Em’ All, ex-Killed In Action), TRAPPIST have one clear mission, to annihilate the listener with a storm of d-beat, crust punk, powerviolence, and hardcore all in the name of BEER. Picture Discharge style punk and Xeroxed WWII photos with bombs replaced by casks, cans, and kegs.

Ancient Brewing Tactics is 21 tracks and 33 minutes of booze-induced chaos, bound to knock you on your ass faster than shotgunning a 15% Russian Imperial Stout. TRAPPIST round out their alcohol-fueled blasts with special guest appearances by Tony Foresta (Municipal Waste, Iron Reagan), Steve Brooks (Torche), and Blake Harrison (Pig Destroyer). NO CORPORATE BEER.

For the ultimate sensory experience, TRAPPIST have recommended a specific beer pairing for listeners to drink along to each song on the album. True aficionados only!
