ArpKor Someone compared these dudes with The black dahlia murder. Well, i would say thats a pretty good thing. Its modern, damn fast death metal with some cool symphonic and melodic parts! Worth every penny!
4/5 Favorite track: The Wrath Kept Within.

Lyle C Peaker Why do I love this record? What's not to love!? Modern melodic death metal with thrashy riffs, breakneck beats and vicious vocals... If that's not enough to get your blood pumping then you are way too old. My fuckin' boys right here!

Track Name: Silence
Silence

Silence sweeps the land
As women and children take refuge
Young men become warriors as they prepare for their final hours

Blades are sharpened, Handles are bound
In preparation for this mighty stand
Helmets planted, Horses mounted
Shields kept strong at hand

For what is coming, We do not know
But strong - the winds of the north begin to blow

All we know is death is coming
From a land not so far beyond ours
Written in blood is the death
Of every woman, man and child

Upon the horizon - a lone rider approaches
Human - this creature is not
His horse half-strewn with rotting flesh
the beast’s teeth are a bloody mess
Behind him unveils an army of the underworld
Fires of undead dragons - they light up the sky
Revealing pure hatred
Their castles will burn to the ground

I, The dark, The master, The sorcerer
I will take this land
I will take this fucking land

Now I control this world and you all belong to me
Women will watch as their children are burned
And husbands will be tortured as the women take their turn
Mercy is not now
Mercy is not ever
I will rain blood, hell and fire
Until forever
Until forever
Track Name: The Wrath Kept Within
The Wrath Kept Within

Into the shadows he shrinks
Eyes cast on enemy as he ponders mortal travesty
Observing from within the darkness
The starlight makes his eyeballs gleam
A skull that’s full of frightful memories
Flicking his tongue as he flirts with ideas of a vengeful ending

He shoots around the group to gain vantage
Counting breaths with every step, they feel his spying eyes
Saliva glistens as it dangles from his jaw
Anticipation as he creeps up from behind

Recurring in his head
The loved ones the man before him rendered dead
His advance pushes them close to the cliff’s edge
The man’s eyes widen as he identifies the creature standing over him

The breeze whispers as a cloud of breath elapses from his nose
Pulsating skin, As the prickling spreads from his head down to his toes
A snarling set of teeth reflect the moonlight
Hoof after hoof, Forcing the quivering man towards the rocky edge

Recurring in his head
The loved ones the man before him rendered dead
His advance pushes them closer to the cliff’s edge
The man’s eyes widen as he identifies the creature standing over him

A shiver shoots down both their spines at once
As the man cries “The Fall Will Kill Us Both!”

The creature slowly steps towards his mortal foe
Pebbles from the edge of the cliff fall to the rocks below
Neither of them blink as the creature closes in
Such a long time scorned, The wrath he kept within
Track Name: Valley Of The Ghelgath
Valley of The Ghelgath


A sight to make your blood turn cold
A cloud of breath to turn you frozen where you stand
A walking blizzard
Will spit bolts of ice
As he reaches for the sky
Turning blood into ice

See them shiver as they turn to run away
He bellows clouds of ice that freeze them there for all eternity
An icy valley
Forever filled with bodies as trophies

The blood of the dead won’t run
In the lord of the Valley’s killing ground

The walls of the Valley bear his harrowing cries
A place where only the brave and foolish come to die
No nation stakes a claim to this land
An abbhoration of a being
Fills hearts with fear

At just the thought of his sight
A towering pillar of ice
The piercing sound of his cries
Enough to make a man lose his mind

Ice lord of the frozen underworld
Relentless in slaying all that enter his domain
An infinite collection of frozen human sculptures
Former warriors frozen asunder

The blood of the dead won’t run
Frozen in time, frozen forever
Track Name: Scion Of Fire
Scion of fire

Hate
Embodied in a rage strong enough
To shift the elements
To leave a legacy that his father had begun
To avenge the death of a father
And create a legend of his own

Armed with a blade, shield and shrouded in flame
Melted flesh, molten bodies in his wake
A festering determination to scold the flesh of all God’s creatures
Determined to slay
Faded memories of his father - the warrior
Lessons in battle
A young man who was raised in war
Gifted to slaughter

Burning hatred growing inside
So it intense it manifested in flames outside his body
The fire exits through his sword
The fires of hell expelling through his rage
With hell he slays
The skin of victims scorched
His scion glowing like a torch
A catalogue of corpses he has slain
His father’s pain
Pushing on his search

Hate
Embodied in a rage strong enough
To shift the elements
To leave a legacy that his father had begun
To avenge the death of a father
And create a legend of his own
His own

Scion, Glowing like a torch
Corpses he’s slain
The skin of victims scorched

Hate
Embodied in a rage strong enough
To shift the elements
To leave a legacy that his father had begun
To avenge the death of a father
And create a legend of his own
Track Name: Misery
Misery

Watching as you struggle confronting
All the blisters that form on your palms
Filling you with a misery designed to cripple and contort you to the core of your soul
You will shudder
You will vomit
You will pray for the end of your days
You will wish the placenta was severed
And embryo dissolved in a puddle of gunk
As the cycle continues to cycle
Tightening it’s grip on your lungs as it grows
You will struggle for breath as the colours you see
Fade from luminous to monochrome

You will age disgracefully
Will will wither so hatefully
Skin covered in calluses
So embroiled in this misery
I will watch you become dismantled
Piece by piece
You cry “What is this Witchery?”
Welcome to misery

Bags hang under eyes
Swollen and sunken
Lymphatic fluid drips from scabs
An undescribable state of exhaustion
Morals violated
Pupils dilated

Never allowed to rest
Heart pumping through your chest
Wounds scattered across you wrists
A life that’s disallowed to end
Misery
Misery
Misery
Misery

Bags hang under eyes
Swollen and sunken
Lymphatic fluid drips from scabs
An undescribable state of exhaustion
Morals violated
Pupils dilated

Never allowed to rest
Never allowed to rest
