Dystopia is the second studio album by Canadian deathcore band Beneath the Massacre. It was released on October 28, 2008 through Prosthetic Records.[6]

The song "Never More" is a re-recorded version of the track of the same name found on their first EP, Evidence of Inequity.

Musical and lyrical themes[edit]

"The songs are by far the weirdest, most intense songs we have ever written. It's great to finally listen to all the crazy ideas we had... After six weeks of intense tracking, we're also relieved that's it's all done. The writing process was hard and exhausting since we wrote most of it on the road, but we can now say that it worth it and we cannot wait to release the album and play the new songs on our upcoming tour."

— Elliot Desgagnés[6]
