I know, she must still be there,
over this town
beyond this spread of stones.
Stacked up to excess
they protect me, their smell
their nonchalance.

Feeling home into this land of striving
at least it's what I got.

The air is increasingly heavy,
dust and mud around us, everyday.
How can we stand it,
how can we believe everything could end here.

Over this town, I know there’s Gaia,
vast and pristine.
Can we have consumed everything?
So I run to the edge, towards the place
where this pollution
will be a distant memory. As a distant memory.

But here, from the top of the world
I can see, our land is wasted.

It's a concrete WAVE!!

All that we've been, what we did.
Now our earth is BROKEN!!

Not a tree, not a leaf, no.
We consumed everything,
our land is messed up.
We discussed to preserve it, how long
all we had just for free...
We now have nothing left, around

We will die by...
We will kill us… kill us all.

Built-In Obsolescence Riccione, Italy

Built-in Obsolescence is a journey across the humanity behaviour.

Progress leads to obsolescence: this view becomes flesh in this band.
INSTAR is the band's first LP, released in 2018. It and contains the darkest truths whose the humanity will be doomed.
Distress, discomfort and inertia.

Built-in Obsolescence is now exploring darker and heavier sounds, getting closer to the post-metal scene.
