about

Nihil Quest Bydgoszcz, Poland

Nihil Quest was established in the summer of 2006. The main idea was to play music inspired in first place by hard rock and metal classics (such as Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Slayer), but also to include some blues and industrial rock influences.

NQ stands out from the local music scene because of their inclination for multimedia. Check out YouTube channel www.youtube.com/user/NihilQuest

Track Name: Man Made Hell
MAN MADE HELL

Something has changed in me
My feelings turned to steel
I've seen too much of life's atrocities

Real crimes before my eyes
Death and torture in broad daylight
Compassion was lost somehow
Like a strange forgotten dream

My threshold is far beyond
Of what most people can bear
Now I've got it all inside me
All this man made hell

Sometimes I can't believe
How little it bothers me
What used to rattle my soul
Now is just a curiosity

I can stand everything
I'm immune to suffering
Safe behind electric eyes
I won't loose any sleep

Something tells me that I've lost
Another piece of humanity
Something tells me that's the price
Cause abyss always looks back at me

My threshold is far beyond
Far beyond of what most people can bear
Now I’ve got this
Man made hell
Man made hell
Living inside me
Track Name: 710
710

There's something behind that door
So close, so unreachable
Once a sweet fantasy
Now a haunting, morbid dream

I struggle to get my focus back
It's like swallowing broken glass
I scream my lungs into the past
Waiting for a miracle

7... 1... 0...
I can't let it go
7... 1... 0...

Those memories scattered around
Each one with a jagged thorn
How can I move on
When they still get to me

I know it's too late now
The writ enslaves like an animal
But I can't leave that behind
I'm struggling for some false hope

7... 1... 0...
I can't let it go
7... 1... 0...
Unbearable

Just for a little while
Let's pretend it didn't happen
Please at least pretend
There's some hope for me

Please just for a while
Let's pretend it didn't happen
I want to break into
710

Break into what was once lost

And if it's true your God had hand in this
I want to make him suffer again
Make him pay

7... 1... 0...
I can't let it go
7... 1... 0...
Unbearable
Track Name: Equal
EQUAL

I saw this man in a bus
With a proud pin on hist chest
It said "We are equal in God"
Fella was in a sad shape

Equal
That's how equal we are
Equal
In the eyes of God

And I felt pity
For this crippled young man
Not because of his body
But for what was in his head

The man looked like a broken toy
Two sticks chained to his hands
Clumsily he rushed to the door
God must have had a good laugh

Equal
That's how equal we are
Equal
Only in the eyes of God

He's got a bad part
In God's grand plan
A taste of hell before the judgment day
So the Almighty took his little toy
Broke it painfully and filled with love
Track Name: Splendid Isolation
SPLENDID ISOLATION

He woke broken
Without life
Without tears
Without shame

Good as dead
Yet still alive
That's primal will
drives him to breathe

With a bottle of booze
A ticket to the place
Where it doesn't hurt

Screams what's left
out of his mind
Can't take it anymore
Just turn it down

Splendid isolation
The only thing that matters
Splendid isolation
Just kill the outside world
Inside

Dignity died
That's a forgotten word
Since thousands of bottles ago

He doesn't smell
His own stench
He doesn't see
How dark his skin got

With a bottle of booze
A ticket to the place
Where it doesn't hurt

Lost his home
Years ago
He has nothing to gain
Nothing to lose

Walking disease that still soldiers on
Outlived so many of
those he used to know

He is lost to the world
And this world is dead to him
Track Name: Mental Slave
MENTAL SLAVE

Disgusting little man
I don't recognize you anymore
You left dreams for the sake of what
You know no one's waiting up above

Mental slave
Bound in chains
By your own choosing

Drown your fears
On your knees
You're victim of yourself

Come on let someone in control
Let excuses start to flow
You don't have to think at all
Sit and rot if that’s what you want

You're a mental slave
Living in chains
You're a mental
You're a mental
You're a mental
Slave

Little part of a machine
It hurts my eyes to see how well you fit
Every day the same old shit
Waking up to see how dull it is

Mental slave
Bound in chains
By your own choosing

Drown your fears
On your knees
You're victim of yourself

Breed, work till the end of days
Slave now lives in your heart
With no hope for your resurrection
I wish we never meet again

Yes, I know It's all subjective
I may be the one who's behind the times
You peacefully evolve when I
Spit venom and still seek for my path

Now you complain
But you don't want to change
You are safe
In a prison you've built

You never want to think why
It all happened this way
You'll never break your chains
You'll never be free

You're a mental
You're a mental
You're a mental
Slave
Track Name: Choose Life (In Misery)
CHOOSE LIFE (IN MISERY)

Their words ring strong and true
With the Good Book they can do no wrong
You should be grateful for what you've got
Even if it means hell on earth

Thank God - they are here - to explain
Life is a gift you cannot refuse

Human wrecks hang out on the hostile streets
Waiting for heaven they're rummaging through the trash
Cause every life is a precious treasure
Even when you are equal to a rat

Choose life
In misery
Choose life
Fulfill your destiny

They're acting like prison guards
When you get in, pay your dues
What hideous crimes we all must have committed
If we can't leave this little dump

Thank God - they are here - to explain
Life is a gift you cannot refuse

Choose life
in misery
Choose life
Fulfill your destiny
Track Name: Dead Girls
DEAD GIRLS

Once upon a time
On my way down
I met an old man
With a strange glint in his eye

Son, he said to me
Confidentially
You look like someone
Who should know

Sometimes we all need
Someone to hug and kiss
Sometimes we all need
Soft feminine touch

Her ice-cold touch
So hot like fire
Smooth flesh of a woman
Who didn't have luck in her life

She won't scream so
Do what turns you on
For your pleasure
She's under your control

Dead girls
Dead girls are easy
Dead girls
Don't say no

When you're all alone
Without hope for change
Looking like a piece of shit
With no money to spend

What you've got to loose
This world discarded you
Such chicks wouldn't even laid
eyes on a creep like you

Young and beautiful
better than you deserve
They don't mind to make a
piece of heaven in your little hell

Dead girls
Dead girls are easy
Dead girls
Don't say no

I shook my head in disbelief
Something in me was trembling down
Could it be my lowest point
Frightening how right he was
Track Name: (Also Sprach) Franky
(ALSO SPRACH) FRANKY

I watch the video of us together
Right now it's so hard to believe
Like a trip to another world
Full of perversion beyond extreme

I can't believe
I can't believe
It all did happen

Two haunted souls
So unlikely to come across
Breaking their rules
Thanks to computer miracle

Bizarre ritual won't leave my mind
Your words still ring in this room
This was our last supper
You were like Jesus when you said

Eat my flesh
Drink my blood
Let my life flow in you
Eat my flesh
Drink my blood
Just let my
Just let my life
Flow in you

Joy and peace filled my mind
As we shared your gift
I waited for this moment
All my sorry life

They will never understand
Why we went so far
Just because we're different
They want to wipe us out

Eat my flesh
Drink my blood
Let my life flow in you
Eat my flesh
Drink my blood
Just let my life flow in you

May they kindly say
Why is this a crime
We were both so happy
When you gave it all

I know they will come soon
To judge and destroy me
Self righteous barbarians
It's all beyond their minds
Track Name: Holy Nailhead
HOLY NAILHEAD

Through visions and mystic dreams
This holy man came to me
I saw his pierced side and bloodstained hands
Divine experience enlightened my mind

I called him the holy Nailhead
Somehow this name punched through my brain
Nails were his doom and glory
In dark times when it all began

(Holy man)

He released me, he brought me to
What I've always wanted and feared
Desires I was trying to kill
Now they are free and so am I

Yes, I can see my destiny
Crown of thorns ripping my skin
Tears, sweat, blood, disgrace
Humiliation beyond belief

Holy Nailhead, god of shame
Wounds taste like freedom, god of shame
Nailhead... God of shame

I want them to destroy me
Laugh at me, spit at me, curse me
Damn me, hate me, watch me
As I'm crucified

So now I dream of this...
Every single day
Free to enjoy what I want
Accepting who I am

I'm not afraid to admit
This is just what I need
What I thought was damned
Is now my only way

I want to experience
Agony in blood, dirt and sweat
Just like my savior

Revelation - sweet joy of pain
Revelation - this is who I am

Holy Nailhead, god of shame
Wounds taste like freedom, god of shame
Nailhead... God of Shame

Nails...
Nails...

Track Name: The Last Message
THE LAST MESSAGE

It's still early but the time seems to stretch
Few minutes of staring at the message
And I still can't believe what I just read

Something went wrong again
I sit here alone, thoughts are tumbling in my head

Looks like quite soon I'll be back to where I began
Yeah it was hopeless all along but this...
This is not how it should be done

I'm not afraid of tears I've been there before
It's the thought I'll be living with this from now on
Maybe it isn't all my fault but it doesn't help me a lot
The feeling of guilt is always on my back

Looks like quite soon I'll be back to where I began
Hopeless all along but this...
This is not how it should be done

And I'll be running from these memories until my breath is gone
There really is nothing... nothing... nothing that can be done
