about

Regulus Sheffield, UK

"Groove-laden stoner rock from the deep south... of Yorkshire!"

Formed in 2012 by Ozzy, Carl, and Joe, a cocktail of grass and boozed fuelled groove soon broke through the boundaries of the universe and pulled Luke from the nether to complete the lineup. Now the gods cower in fear as Regulus begin their reign! ... more

Track Name: Big Business
Every day lasts too damn long
When your head is on the ground
Keep your ear to the floor
And listen for the sound

A thunder is approaching
A rain to wipe this earth clean
All you know will not remain
If you know what I mean

Callous and cruel this confinement
You've settled in well
Your achievements are not your own
Your words are lost in hell

I can't see my hands
Because I've clawed out my eyes
So I’d never have to know
Never have to wonder why

A thunder is approaching
A rain to wipe this earth clean
All you know will not remain
If you know what I mean

Callous and cruel this confinement
You've settled in well
Your achievements are not your own
Your words are lost in hell

Where we're going
You won't need eyes to see
Big business is coming
Now who you gonna be
Track Name: Off the Rails
Dust in the wind
Is all I’ll ever be
But I’m not complaining
At least I’m living free

Weight of the world
Rests easy on my back
Free from my burden
And off the beaten track

I feel at last I know what it can mean to be my own

Off the rails
No turning back
If I should fall and footsteps failing fade to black
I know I’ll die
With head held high
My conscience clean and all integrity intact

No cage can contain me
No prison bar withstand
No chains shall restrain me
No cuff shall stay my had

I feel at last I know what it can mean to be my own

Off the rails
No turning back
If I should fall and footsteps failing fade to black
I know I’ll die
With head held high
My conscience clean and all integrity intact

Off the rails
Track Name: Promised Land
The rain comes down in droves
And lightning cracks the air
I stand intoxicated here
Beckoning the end

I was always told that I would burn in hell
Now I find myself king of all I behold
Embrace the darkness and take my hand
You’ve never been so far from the promised land

Fire reaches up to me
I feel no pain or fear
As the world collapses to itself
My reckoning is near

I was always told that I would burn in hell
Now I find myself king of all I behold
Embrace the darkness and take my hand
You’ve never been so far from the promised land

Corrupted and forsaken souls
Rise to claim their land
I welcome them into my home
I built with my own hands

I was always told that I would burn in hell
Now I find myself king of all I behold
Embrace the darkness and take my hand
This can all be yours my son, this is the promised land
Track Name: The Devil Don't Change
The skies are dark as clouds roll in
Waiting for the end to begin
The devil don’t change but neither do we
They always told me “be all you can be”

The devil don’t change but neither do I
I’ll always be here like the morning sky
The world moves on we’ll still be here
Smoking cigarettes and drinking beer

I signed a contract to give my life away
Now the time has come there’s nothing more to say
Drank a lot of whiskey, I’ve walked a lot of miles
Smoked a lot of cigarettes, I’ve killed a lot of smiles

The devil don’t change but neither do I
I’ll always be here like the morning sky
The world moves on we’ll still be here
Smoking cigarettes and drinking beer

The devil don’t change but neither do I
I’ll always be here like the morning sky
If I’ve learned one thing from my years on this earth
You gotta live life early before the devil learns what it’s worth
Track Name: Cut the Ribbon
I have shown myself
Proof of what can be
Fresh faced and bright eyed
So full of life

I cut the ribbon and find myself
Standing amongst the trees
A feast of knowledge is at my feet
So I consume all I need

I have found myself
Proof of what will be
Haggard face, bloodshot eyes
Existing for the night

I have lost myself
Amongst the trees
Bearded face, weary eyes
Living out what’s left of life

I take the hit and find myself
Floating above the trees
Reflecting my new surroundings
Consuming all within reach
Track Name: The Dregs
I’ve seen all of this city
Seen the rain as it falls
One thing always keeps me
On my knees as I fall
And if time could teach me
The way to find home
I could stay here forever
On my knees, as I fall again

And I drain away
All that I know
As the sky
Feeds me anew

I walk tall
Among people I never knew
Taking all I ever wanted
Digging roots of my own

And I drain away
All that I know
As the sky
Feeds me anew

Take me home

All I had and all I knew
Have been shown to be wrong
So I welcome the morning sun
Life returns, to move me on
Track Name: Witch Hunt
I had a dream that it would come to this
Demon temptress, cold deathly kiss

Her wicked eyes, her broken smile
Her whispered words of black insight

Into the blackest night we will thunder
Torches blaze burning life asunder

This is a witch hunt
This is a witch hunt
Take up your rope and tie the noose tight
Lets have a death tonight

I never dreamed that it would come to this
Demon temptress meets fires deadly kiss

Her wicked eyes, her broken smile
This night the sun will never rise

Watch as our holy work flickers in the midnight air
Drenched in glory, only never fair

This is a witch hunt
This is a witch hunt
Thou shalt not suffer, until you feel our gaze
Lets have another death tonight
Track Name: Bloodclot
Listen for the words of those who know
And be informed of who we are
Their polished truths and silver tongue
They’re guiding us to war

Gazing at the faces of those who stand beside me
Smoke and mirrors cut through purple haze
I can’t read emotions so easily anymore
This strange mist shrouds in so many ways

Waiting for the words of he who speaks
Their eyes turned to his face
Glistening with tears of desperate expectation
Words to end worlds, we can never read.
Track Name: A Whole World Burns
The seed of jealousy is sown
I cannot resist it's cry
Shrill in my mind it grows
A pitch to crack the skies
Slowly the fire burns
As passion wanes thin
A calm exhale of breath
Our time will draw in

Ill temptation circles overhead
A vulture picks its time
To drag you to his bed
My fear overtakes my will
Swept into the flood
Old trappings hold sway still

The tides calm their waves
I wait in dark silence
The fool in my mind relates
My fears retreat within
Your intention may be pure
But the mind can create
Such terrible shapes in the dark
Twisting truth beyond what's right

Ill temptation circles overhead
A vulture picks its time
To drag you to his bed
I wait in silent protest
For all to become clear
Only then do I understand my mistake

Rain settles on cold ground
With all our words finally said
Alone here I listen to the sound
Too little too late to make amends

Too little too late and our whole world burns
