about

Bostjan Zupancic Saint Johnsbury, Vermont

Bostjan Zupancic: MicroMetal is a project started and led by Russ Hayes (a.k.a. Bostjan Zupancic) to blend various metal genres with an alternate tuning known as 19-EDO or 19-TET. There is also some experimentation with other alternate tunings.

Songs have an energetic feel, blending classic heavy metal with progressive, symphonic, death metal and doom metal tones.

Track Name: Idle Hands
Action on demand - Might s’well make my stand
‘gainst the establishment - Make use of idle hands
But it all depends - Reward promises
Carry out the plan - Make use of idle hands
Do it, what’s the holdup - we need a shakeup - time is ticking
Do it now!
C’mon - We’re all waiting - anticipating - what's the hang up
Time to act - motivate - move before it's too late!
You’re wasting time, don’t waste your breath
Now get it done, before your death
Move along or nevermind, your idle hands are a waste of time
You’re such a jerk to make us wait, when all you do is procrastinate
Don’t burden us [No!], don’t waste our time,
Just get it done, before your die
Now move your butt, get into gear, or we become your darkest fear
… Nevermind! None of this is worth my time!
We only have one life to live, so make it count!
Track Name: Home
I won’t fight it anymore the flow is just too strong
Change is inevitable - what’s right now will soon be wrong
When you solve a problem, doesn’t it feel good?
But good can turn into numb then nothing feels quite as it should
Should we - assuage - our pain?
The fear you feel is natural, don’t let it cave you in
& this pain will never dull, it’s necessary for discipline
Some day when you’re comfortable the shake-ups come again
The expectation’s reasonable, just a matter of where & when
Home - a state - of mind
Home is where your heart is full and you can rest your head
Also it’s a place to go to avoid worry and dread
Home is where your heart is full and you can rest your mind
Also it’s a place to go a while to safely hide
First we need to find ourselves, let instincts be our guide
Who we are and where we live is just a state of mind
More than your flesh (it’s who we are)
Not property (it’s who we are)
It’s what - you do - who are we?!
So don’t fight this anymore & give in to the flow
Cutting off some deadwood will help to grow your ailing soul
I’m not making promises - just find out for yourself
Discipline can improve your life, give you health and gain you wealth
Home is where your heart is full and you can rest your mind
Also it’s a place to go a while to safely hide
First we need to find ourselves, let instincts be our guide
Who we are and where we live is just a state of mind
Track Name: Demagogue
This is the way that you see me: Character from a fantasy
Deeper than your reality, It’s too much for you to perceive
Follow me and I can save you, Stay by me forever true
But first, tell me what you will do, I will demand so much from you
Life. Liberty. The Persuit… I lead - you follow - I am your tomorrow
Bow before me, then you will see
Give me your hate and I’ll make us great
I will make us great again. With me, you finally understand
You must give in to my plan, Join and fit in with our clan
All will make some sacrifice, You prepare to give your life
A time will come when I will tell, The rest that you had served us well
Sacrifice for the greater evil! EVIL!
I lead - you follow - I am your tomorrow
You let me think your thoughts for you, What is real I pick and choose
Futures only I decide, No one will run no one can hide
Everyone who stands with me To become plurality
Will receive my promises - You will keep my promises
Survival - Lies - Rat race ...
I command - you follow - Pull the plug - No tomorrow
Bow before me, then you will see
Give me your hate and I’ll make us great
Give in to me, all you will be
It takes quite a man to make us great again!
Track Name: Return
Blistering in the sun - never know when work is done
Never-ending quest for life - missed the chance to live in spite
Working hard for tomorrow - ended with only sorrow
Missed the chance that was today - until your life has ticked away
Searching all day long - Return where you belong
Return that which you have paid - borrow more to save today
Living life in the past - the present moves on too fast
Take a breath and hold it in - fold your wealth into your skin
Savor every moment now - blow your shot, then take a bow
Searching all day long - Return where you belong
Searching all day and night - Return from wrong to right
Track Name: Struggle
Life is struggle - will be wasted - take a cup full - do you taste it?
Is it good?
Life is struggle - take a cup full
Do you ever wish you were somebody else?
If you do, just remember, it's never as easy as it looks.
Life is hard as you make it
Struggle to make it worth it
Keep your chin up and you feel
The struggle is real!
It ought to come as no surprise, no one has come to aid my cries
I took a gaze into the sky - one billion stars; the paradox is that we're all alone.
Can't you see the storm is coming?
Lock your doors and hide belongings.
Life can give and take away, all we are will fade away - gone, gone.
Use resources while you can
Set in place a useful plan
If you fail get up again
Thoughts and deeds will outlive man
History - did you learn your lesson?
It ought to come as no surprise, no one has come to aid my cries
I took a gaze into the sky - one billion stars; the paradox is that we're all alone
Life is struggle - will be wasted - take a spoon full - do you taste it?
Did you keep it down?
Life is struggle - take a spoon full
Do you ever wish that you had so much more
But you have no idea what life has in store
Life is hard as you make it
Struggle to make it worth it
Keep your chin up and you feel
The struggle is real!
