Personal gratitude:

Martin:Thanks to my bandmates Danimal, Dawid and Filip for sticking together and getting things done. Thanks to Bartosz Kluzek(brother), Monika Kluzek (cousin), Elizabeth Kikosicka (friend), Piotr Lutnik (luthier) for the support. Thanks to friends Mateusz Rogowski, Andrzej Wiktor Jurek, Mateusz Irzykowski and Krzysztof Panda Zakrzewski for help and support to finish this thing. Thanks to my whole family, friends and fans!

Danimal: Well, in retrospect it were Karol Huzarski and Mariusz Wychowanski, that were responsible for me meeting up with Martin in late 2013 and that's what got this whole thing running, so thank you guys! Thanks to Iga (wife) and Paul (father) for support. Thanks to daughter Mila for a whole new view on life and love. Former bands and friends in Netherlands, Poland and elsewhere! The Skałka-family (in particular Krzysztof Skałka - RIP) for the motivation to make music again (Fist!). And let's add my late mother Barbara and also gone friend Artur Szydlak - RIP: "sorry, for being late..."

Dave: I would like to thank my band mates for always turning off my amp during rehearsals. Big thanks to my fellow bass player Andrzej Wiktor Jurek for doing my job when I was too lazy and my parents who bought me a bass thinking I'm too dumb for a six-string instrument. Special thanks to Mateusz Irzykowski for trying to stop me when I tried to kill myself after hearing my bass lines and last but not least, thanks for Ola Hofman for constantly reminding me I'm merely a bass player.

Phil: I want to say thanks to all my friends and family who supports him - THANKS

All fans, friends and followers of Thunderation: You Rock! You Thunder! Keep Thundering!

Thunderation © are a Dutch/Polish heavy guitar band (rock, metal, thrash, progressive) based in Cracow, Poland.

What started in late 2013, as a lucky meeting between Polish guitarist Martin and Dutch vocalist/drummer Danimal, became a thundering band by 2015 when guitarist Phil and bassist Dave teamed up with the initial collaborators.

Track Name: Thunderation [Intro]
Thunder, Thunder, Thunderation
We are the Girl Scouts Association
When we work with determination
We create a real sensation
Track Name: Bonequake
Welcome to Zero Hour
Breaking balance of power;
Obstacles are miles ahead;
The taste of blood and fear and sweat;

Testing out the strength of will
Aim to please, or shoot-to-kill;
Reach ultimate victory and stand tall;

It's gonna be pain staking, breath taking;
A personal ruin...
Brainshake, Bonequake, Skullbreak;
Your undoing.

Perseverance is the key
To bring the demon to its knees;
The only fear, is fear itself;
The speed you need is that of stealth;
Dare to fail and don't complain;
And never mind the crunching pain;
The one to hit, or hit the floor;
You'll be always back for more;

Now or never;
Earth shattering endeavor;
We give no quarter;
Rock-solid bricks and mortar;
Heavy guitar noise has begun;
All the wimps, they won't live long
Like it heavy, like it raw;
Pumps you up, all systems go!
Track Name: Plague Doctor
Greetings,
It would appear a new type of treatment
against your illness has been discovered.

I am not yet fully up to date about this new method,
but I have been told it involves Heavy Guitar Music,
that have an impact on a scale of Thunderation..., yes...

The impact of this new treatment apparently penetrates the brain
much more efficiently than my existing treatment.
It would appear this Thunderation is a treatment that doesn't go through the brain, but your eardrums...., yes...

Maybe, we could possibly give you a listen as a first test..., yes...
'Experiments bring progress', I always say!

Let's find out if these new insights are indeed as good as they claim to be. I will come back later to give some observations and some first conclusions.
Track Name: Rift [album mix]
Ephemeral rift;
First your mind’s stuck, now falls over the cliff;
Head checking!
A flaw in the skull;
Sanity gone, isn’t that wonderful?;
Nerve wrecking!
Brain-work you need;
An incurable type of crazy it feeds;
Beckoning…
Relax and breath;
Cerebral recovery awaits underneath;
‘til the mind goes…
RIFT!

Watch out, a battery will replace your heart that’s taken out.
And before you realize, you’re already freaking out.
Relax, an attempt to slow you down and make you feel at ease.
But sooner or later, insanity will have you on your knees.

Plague Doctor will observe you,
while some others will try to unnerve you.
And the only chance for recovery
is to disconnect yourself from society.
Is the brain operational?
Is it all somewhat too sensational?
Your cerebrum has made you blind.
Reality check, a bad state of mind.

Ephemeral rift;
First your mind’s stuck, now falls over the cliff;
Head checking!
A flaw in the skull;
Sanity gone, isn’t that wonderful?;
Nerve wrecking!
Brainwork you need;
An incurable type of crazy it feeds;
Beckoning…
Relax and breath;
Cerebral recovery awaits underneath;
‘til the mind goes…
RIFT!

Hark! Fantasy is on the move to the place you lost your mind.
And there are no soothing sounds will put the spirit back into the spine.
Tingle; Rush of blood to the head that will try and fix you up
Unrepairable brain damage; mental health that has been robbed.

Plague Doctor will observe you,
while some others will try to unnerve you.
And the only chance for recovery
is to disconnect yourself from society.
Is the brain operational?
Is it all somewhat too sensational?
Your cerebrum has made you blind.
Reality check, a bad state of mind.

Plague Doctor will observe you,
while some others will try to unnerve you,
And your only chance for recovery,
is a one way ticket to the cemetery...

Is your brain still operational?
Is it all somewhat too sensational?
Is this all in your head is it a distant echo?
Can you resist, or does your mind go… … …
RIFT!
Track Name: Free At Last
Troubled vision no more, the head is clear now
Sobriety isn’t real, it’s just a doubt
Can you tell me what freedom is? I don’t seem to know
O Why in thunderation, is it so difficult to show?
Free at last – unknown turf for me
Free at last – not what I expect it to be
Free at last – at least now the head is clear
Free at last – uncertainty and full of fear

Do you want to live in peace, or live in pieces?
If you don’t know that you’re enslaved, you don’t know what release is
Can you tell me what freedom is; the end of the struggle?
O Why in thunderation, can’t we terminate the trouble?
Free at last – liberty or death
Free at last – Fight until your final breath
Free at last – reject tyranny!
Free at last – when the bullet hits me

Finish the suffering and draw it to a close
You pay a heavy price for the wrong things you chose
Can you tell me what freedom is; A burden hard to bear?
O Why in thunderation, can’t we leave this road to nowhere?
Free at last - This is where it all ends
Free at last - Life will not make any amends
Free at last - A warning from the posthumous
Free at last - Death will come and take all of us

Tell me what it feels like to be FREE…

Free at last - When darkness covers thee
Free at last - When you enter eternity
Free at last - This wasn't supposed to be
Free at last – Death just had the last laugh on me
Track Name: Bloodthirsty
When the dogs pick up your scent;
Exactly know just where you went;
It isn't difficult to see,
They’re bloodthirsty

The Golden Rule of nature's way;
The weakest link is first to pay;
You're upgraded corpse cuisine,
They’re bloodthirsty

Quench the blood-thirst!

When the wolves start to howl;
The pack will move and hunt you down;
It's getting agonizingly,
They’re bloodthirsty

If you want blood, come and get it;
Carve it open, no anesthetic;
The prey surrenders finally,
They’re bloodthirsty
Track Name: Undergrounded
Alive, we all decompose when we're dead;
Expired; gone you life and no remains left;
Where are the people?
The spirit's boundless!
Below departed: the Undergrounded.

Calling for something, that isn't coming (Where Are The People?)
Crossing the river Styx with nothing (Where Are The People)
Cannot take, that which is burned or rotten (Where Are The People?)
While the soul is formless and free,
so be gone on your way.....
Please, don't tell the Reaper Man...

A lie, that Pale Death thought to be true;
The scythe won't have anything important to do;
Where are the people?
It’s so astounding!
All cremated, or Undergrounded.

Calling for something, that isn't coming (Where Are The People?)
Crossing the river Styx with nothing (Where Are The People?)
Cannot take, that which is burned or rotten (Where Are The People?)
While the soul is formless and free,
so be gone on your way...
Please, don't tell the Reaper Man...
Track Name: An Unsuspecting Population
Well My Friends,

It does appear that this new Thunderation method is quite promising.
You would agree..., yes?...

Please forgive me, but I must be on my way. I will be taking this new Thunderation method with me, so that additional 'tests' can be performed
upon an unsuspecting population..., yes..., yes...
Track Name: Thunderation [Reprise]
Thunder, Thunder, Thunderation
We are the Girl Scouts Association
When we work with determination
We create a real sensation!

I want to be a Girl Scout too...
