Joshua (J.Smo) Smotherman The Long Dark Road is organic, in-your-face hardcore rock that presents a fine balance between the angry screams of black metal, the pure, raw energy of punk, and tastefully placed excerpts of psychedelic awesomeness.

Track Name: The Tragedy of the Commons
One man, given time
will deplete, what is common.
A space, finite in size
is infinitely divisible
and subsidized by the belief
that technology can solve all problems
that time can heal all wounds
and solve inaction.
Cornucopian dreams of goods
will bring Cassandrian nightmares.
Create another Loess Pateau
in the face of what we all know
the burden of personal gain,
the pleasures we're all seeking
will take the plenty from others mouths
in spit of what we're facing
Open access for all?
Don't you play on my sympathies.
Our tragedy brings ruin to us all,
that I will never know
and I will never know...
