Review comments:
"his first new album in 20 years and it really is something a bit special."
"It’s the sort of record you’ll be playing again and again. "
Leslii Phillips - The Rockpit

"Mazz-XT's At The Brink Of Eternity marks an auspicious return to music. The album is a fine collection of melodic, hard rock with a pleasing old-fashioned bluesy feel."
"Raunchy, raw, and a delight to hear."
"Guitar work is in the style of vintage Led Zep, bringing back this old rocker's childhood memories of the Top of The Pops intro edit of Whole Lotta Love."
Paul Jack - Rock Hard Reviews

"It is thoroughly recommended by us here at Rockbrat as one of THE Australian albums of the year" - Cowboy Col - The Rockbrat Blog

Track Name: Spellbound
Spellbound
Music and Lyrics Scott Ginn (C) 2015

Well you've been livin' in the gutter
With your hands around your knees
Victim of a social group
Filled your mind with disease

Never thought that you would be
a victim in this game
That's the way the dice have rolled
Now live your life in shame

You were Spellbound
Oh get back on your feet
Life came crashing down
OOh life should be so sweet
Yeah Spellbound
Take your time, ease your mind,
Look into your heart
Find a way
You can make a brand new start

Well you've been livin' for the summertime
Livin' fast and free
Worshipping a falsehood god
That wasn't meant to be
Standin' on some moral ground
Takin' all the heat
But when it all is said and done
Just get back on your feet

You were Spellbound
Oh get back on your feet
Life came crashing down
OOh life should be so sweet
Yeah Spellbound
Take your time, ease your mind,
Look into your heart
Find a way
You can make a brand new start

Everything is static, but your world is spinning round
On a downward spiral, 'til you crash into the ground
Wondering what it will take, to wake you from your dream
Have to hit rock bottom, to make you c-c-c-c-come clean

Well you have lost your sense of space and time
Lost your reality
Stuck inside your glass of wine
That's where you wanna be
Listen to my warning
Listen to my plea
I'll save you from this sorry state
I'll help to set you free

You were Spellbound
Get back on your feet
Life came crashing down
Yeah life should be so sweet
Yeah Spellbound
Take your time, ease your mind,
Look into your heart
Find a way
You can make a brand new start
Track Name: Lightning strikes again
Lightning strikes again
Music and Lyrics Scott Ginn (C) 2015

There's a buzz, of energy, It's in the air, it's in the breeze
Got black clouds, storm on the rise, Hell is brewin', see it in your eyes
When lightning strikes again, The gods have been heaven sent
And you know there'll be no quarter tonight
Roll of thunder, flash of light
There's no warning, when lightning strikes again
Black dog howls in the dead of night
There's no warning, when lightning strikes again

There's a white flash, across the sky, Can't stop the pain, burnin' through my eyes
In black of night, turns so bright, And just like that, you see, it blinds my sight
When lightning strikes again, The gods have been heaven sent
And you know there'll be no quarter tonight
Roll of thunder, flash of light
There's no warning, when lightning strikes again
Black dog howls in the dead of night
There's no warning, when lightning strikes again

Slam the shutters, lock the door, Batten down the hatches, and get down on the floor
Roll of thunder, flash of light, If looks could kill, I died a million times
When lightning strikes again, The gods have been heaven sent
And you know there'll be no quarter tonight
Roll of thunder, flash of light
There's no warning, when lightning strikes again
Black dog howls in the dead of night
There's no warning, when lightning strikes again

Roll of thunder, flash of light
- Ah there'll be no warning
Black dog howls in the dead of night
There'll be no warning
There'll be no warning
- Ah there'll be no warning
Track Name: Let's have a party
Let's have a party
Music and Lyrics Scott Ginn (C) 2015

Got a one time offer, if you want it, you can take it
You know that you can't resist, ain't no way that you can fake it
Livin' it up, Livin' the dream, party in the street
Don't wanna stop, and I can't get enough
I'm takin' it up, up to maximum speed
Let's have a Party - (Party in the House)
Time to live it up
Let's have a Party - (Party in the House)
Oh no, I never I never wanna stop

You're on top of the world, you're the finest in the nation
Always givin' it your all, Now it's time for celebration
Big night planned, Shake your booty, you know that it can take it
Sweet hook up, and now you know that it's time
To take it and bake it and shake it all night long
Let's have a Party - (Party in the House)
Time to live it up
Let's have a Party - (Party in the House)
Oh no, I never I never wanna stop


yeah we're livin' it up, Livin' the dream, yeah we'll party in the street
Don't wanna stop, and I can't get enough
I'm takin' it up, up to maximum speed
Let's have a Party - (Party in the House)
Time to live it up
Let's have a Party - (Party in the House)
Oh no, I never I never wanna stop

Let's have a Party - (Party in the House)
Time to live it up
Let's have a Party - (Party in the House)
Oh no, I never I never I never

Let's have a Party - (Party in the House)
Time to live live live live live it up
Let's have a Party - (Party in the House)

Let's have a Party - (Party in the House)
Oooh yeah, alright, gonna have this party tonight
Track Name: That's the way we rock
That's the way we rock
Music and Lyrics Scott Ginn (C) 2015

Rush of blood, through our veins, adrenalin's on fire
Driven by, some deep down hunger, livin' on the wire
Accelerator to the floor, pushing through top gear
Throw it into overdrive, a total lack of fear

Sometimes, we throw it to the wind
One chance, we'll take the plunge right now, and dive right in

That's the way we rock - (Rock)
That's the way we roll (Roll)
Live our lives with no regrets
And open up our soul
That's the way we rock - (Rock)
That's the way we roll (Roll)
Take our chance, and roll the dice
Givin' it our all

No turnin' back, full steam ahead, no lookin' back
Lock it in, set my sights, stay right on track
Turn it up, that's the way, nice and loud
Let your hair down, shake it up, take it up a gear

Sometimes, we throw it to the wind
One chance, we'll take the plunge right now, and dive right in

That's the way we rock - (Rock)
That's the way we roll (Roll)
Live our lives with no regrets
And open up our soul
That's the way we rock - (Rock)
That's the way we roll (Roll)
Take our chance, and roll the dice
Givin' it our all
That's the way we rock

Accelerator to the floor, pushing through top gear
Throw it into overdrive, a total lack of fear
Turn it up, that's the way, nice and loud
Let your hair down, drop your guard, don't be too proud

That's the way we rock - (Rock)
That's the way we roll (Roll)
Live our lives with no regrets
And open up our soul
That's the way we rock - (Rock)
That's the way we roll (Roll)
Yeah we live our lives with no regrets
Givin' it our all
That's the way we rock

That's the way we roll

Yeah we rock and roll and rock and roll all day
Track Name: When ancients ruled the world
When ancients ruled the world
Music and Lyrics Scott Ginn (C) 2015

Cool winds moving the sands of time
Lost worlds leaving us only a sign
Embedded in rock, covered by dust

The dust that has washed, across this great place
now only ruins remain
The glory of what, was once a great empire
In a land that time forgot

When ancients ruled the world
When ancients ruled the world

Ancient cities vanish without a trace
Desolation, destruction left in its place
Tired eyes on a horizon of doom

The dust that has washed, across this great place
now only ruins remain
The glory of what, was once a great empire
In a land that time forgot

When ancients ruled the world
When ancients ruled the world

Civilization dies with one cruel blow
But another will rise from the afterglow
From cradle to grave will tell our story

The dust that has washed, across this great place
now only ruins remain
The glory of what, was once a great empire
In a land that time forgot

When ancients ruled the world
When ancients ruled the world
Track Name: In this jungle
In this jungle
Music and Lyrics Scott Ginn (C) 2015

Got a taste for blood, it's a wanton beast
Baby you been playing with fire
Been howlin' at the moon, waiting for a feast
You got a thirst that don't tire

Dark shadows hanging round your door
You hunger for the night no more
You can hide away, from the light of day
In this jungle, we live and breathe the night
Oh yeah

They'll be locking up the doors, when they hear you howl
Think of the risk that you take
They'll be hunting you down, like a freak or martyr
And burnin' you at the stake

Dark shadows hanging round your door
You hunger for the night no more
You can hide away, from the light of day
In this jungle, we live and breathe the night

You can hide away, from the light of day
In this jungle, we live and breathe the night
Dark shadows hanging round your door
You hunger for the night no more
Track Name: I'm on the inside
On the inside
Music and Lyrics Scott Ginn (C) 2015

Puttin' up walls, keeping to yourself, oh yeah
Shutting me off from your emotional bridge, over there
Take another pill, 'coz you know you will, Uh huh
Shakin' me down, with your hangups, that ain't fair

You gotta wonder when you lost your mojo
And your space became a no-go (zone)
Ah no - It ain't the way I thought it would be
Mama have a piece of me

I'm on the inside
You're on the outside
Lookin' in
I'm on the inside
You're on the outside
Lookin' in

Messin' me around, with your mixed up mind, oh yeah
Searchin' for some fault, that you know ain't there, nowhere
You got somewhere to be, but it ain't with me, uh-uh
We gotta whole lotta livin' to do, let down your hair

You gotta wonder when you lost your mojo
And your space became a no-go (zone)
Ah no - It ain't the way I thought it would be
Mama have a piece of me

I'm on the inside
You're on the outside
Lookin' in
I'm on the inside
You're on the outside
Lookin' in

I'm on the inside
You're on the outside
Lookin' in
I'm on the inside
You're on the outside
Lookin' in

I'm on the inside
You're on the outside
Lookin' in
I'm on the inside
You're on the outside
Lookin' in
Track Name: At the brink of eternity
At the brink of eternity
Music and Lyrics Scott Ginn (C) 2015

Countdown to armageddon
Collision course for the earth
No way that we can stop it
We've been hit before
One strike and it hits like ten atom bombs

Gotta buy some time
You know that we need it
And god knows
There ain't no other way that it could be
At the brink of eternity

History will repeat itself
A meteor strike will come to the earth again
It's the end of the days as we know it
Time for evolution, of some other race

Gotta buy some time
You know that we need it
And god knows
There ain't no other way that it could be
At the brink of eternity

Gotta buy some time
You know that we need it
And god knows
There ain't no other way that it could be
At the brink of eternity
Track Name: Devil in disguise
Devil in disguise
Music and Lyrics Scott Ginn (C) 2015

Something's gotta give, this ain't no way to live
Suckin' on a smokescreen of insecurity
Wastin' your life, bringin' trouble and strife
You ain't takin' responsibility

You pull on everyone's emotions
Can't stop the rage inside your brain

Hey
You're the devil in disguise
The wolf behind black eyes
You're the devil in disguise
I've had it with your lies

Bashin' on a brick wall, headin' for a big fall
Knockin' on the door of a one way ride
Better give it up, 'coz man I've had enough
Time to pull yourself in line, before your pride

You pull on everyone's emotions
Can't stop the rage inside your brain

Hey
You're the devil in disguise
The wolf behind black eyes
You're the devil in disguise
I've had it with your lies

Bashin' on a brick wall, headin' for a big fall
Knockin' on the door of a one way ride
Better give it up, man I've had enough
Time to pull yourself in line, before your pride

I know you got it deep inside of you
It's time to brush away the pain

Hey
You're the devil in disguise
The wolf behind black eyes
You're the devil in disguise
I've had it with your lies
Track Name: Too hot honey
Too hot honey
Music and Lyrics Scott Ginn (C) 2015

Well there's something in the way that you walk down the street
With your hair shining in the sun
You're swinging to the beat of a different drum
Your rhythm is in harmony

Talk about living the dream
It's something that is hard to describe
Emotions on a roller coaster
You make my heart feel alive
It's ok, it's alright
One kiss and I'll say good night

The first time that I set eyes on you
My heart started racing away
Got a strange kind of dizzy in my head
Ooh I never felt this way

Talk about living the dream
It's something that is hard to describe
Emotions on a roller coaster
You make my heart feel alive
It's ok, it's alright
One kiss and I'll say good night

Too hot honey - keepin' my distance
Too hot honey - what can I say?
Too hot honey - baby you're too hot
Too hot for me

Too hot honey - keepin' my distance
Too hot honey - what can I say?
Too hot honey - burnin' my eyes
You blow me away
Too hot honey - ooh yeah
Too hot honey - hear what I say
Too hot honey - every night
You're makin' my day

Too hot honey
You just were too hot honey
Ah yeah - Too hot honey
Ohh mama you're too hot
Too hot honey
Too hot for me
