REQUIEM (2020)
Este "Requiem" supone el regreso después de trece años para este proyecto canadiense afín a sonidos black atmosféricos. El ritmo del álbum en líneas generales no es muy alto, pero la larga extensión de los temas permite a Evillair dibujar paisajes de desolación y soledad. Los temas que contiene este "Requiem" se desgajan en un black de guitarras distorsionadas que ofrecen un plano oscuro y siniestro a las composiciones, ayudando a completar las sensaciones de soledad y abatimiento cuando las voces hacen acto de presencia, como una descarga de muerte y agonía. Los riffs se complementas a la perfección con una batería, que aunque programada logra ofrecer cierta calidez a la música de este álbum. Evalliar también sabe añadir un plus de melodía a su música, sin apenas abuso de teclados, sino que esta melodía se presenta con acertados arreglos en forma de guitarras limpias en segundo plano, o de riffs que acaban por cobrar protagonismo en medio de la maraña de sonido. Estamos ante un trabajo de  black atmosférico, que es capaz de ofrecer un producto destacable, inspirándose en los orígenes de género pero sin descuidar la oportunidad de ofrecer un sonido más claro sin que ello aleje su música de las sensaciones de soledad y muerte que emanan de un álbum como este. (7,9).




1. The Raven's Lament 08:09
  Upon wings of melancholy
I fall beneath the light
In a dark shroud I lay
Abiding death's twilight

Faded whispers of ravens now cry
Weeping my mournful song
Tears of the living fall
I am forever… gone

Memories of life fade away
Shadows cast sullen clouds
Beneath the earth I now lay
To Sleep in it's dark shroud

Please do not weep for me...
My beloved in darkness's veil
Please do not pray for me...
Upon oceans of death I'll sail

These crimson tears - begin to fall
Sail upon death's shores
The pain of life now ends - I hear it’s call
No life forever more

Faded whispers of ravens now cry
Weeping my mournful song
Tears of the living fall
I am forever… gone
2. As Twilight Nears 08:10
A dream lost in memories Immortal life not seen As twilight nears, so does my death Under a winters moon, my breath shall cease Life bequeathed to my dark angel In wings of solitude I rest in peace Forbidden rapture divine As funeral bells chime As twilight nears, so does my death Under a winters moon, my breath shall cease Life bequeathed to my dark angel In wings of solitude I rest in peace The black rain begin to fall A blackened sun does call As twilight nears, so does my death Under a winters moon, my breath shall cease Life bequeathed to my dark angel In wings of solitude I rest in peace Upon the ivory snow As mourners cries echo  
3. Path of the Fallen 06:41
  Faded eyes of nothingness
A dirge song echoes in the night
Lost soul cries in pain
A crimson moon eclipses light

Beyond the gates of death
Darkness embrace me in its wings
Blackened eyes weep blood
As the wind of nevermore sings

Come … Angel of death
Bless me with your infernal kiss
My life bestowed upon you
And grant me your eternal bliss

Death beckons my dark soul
I walk the path of the fallen
Dead forest shadows
I am now among death's minion

Faded eyes of nothingness
A dirge song echoes in the night
Lost soul cries in pain
A crimson moon eclipses light
4. Winds of Desolation 07:11
Inside my cold tomb I lay still - devoid of life Within my dark mind It is black - filled with my strife I wither away The cold air freezes my breath To gallows I walk Crimson hope fall into death Nocturnal mist fade Upon valleys of the lost Life soon to decay Upon the lands of the frost Upon winds of woe The crows call my name in vain Waiting death below The howls call the last refrain Beneath the pale moon Misty forest calls my name Dark veils, the void looms Echo burns into flames Inside my cold tomb I lay still - devoid of life Within my dark mind It is black - filled with my strife  
5. Into Despair 06:48  
 Beneath the ashes, of a forgotten past
The dreams of a life long lost fade into despair
Under this blackest night, hope shall not last
Alone in pain a broken life none can repair

Darkness falls - on a divine death
Crumbling hope of a lost life
A noose is tied - to suspend breath
A blackened tomb void of strife

In halls of forgotten lives I walk
In memories faded by hopelessness and grief
The bells tolls at last and the ravens flock
This endless pain and hatred will now fade to relief

Darkness falls - on a divine death
Crumbling hope of a lost life
A noose is tied - to suspend breath
A blackened tomb void of strife

Within this grave I sleep a blissful death
Upon winds of the dying painful cries thus fades
The faded scream whispers of a final breath
On this hallowed cold ground my blood now cascades
6. Beyond the Dusk 08:19
Alone in darkness, I call your name
To be welcomed beyond the pale veil of death
In stillness I fade, to this slumber
The eternal winds take my last breath

Entombed by darkness night
A chilling silence of death cries
Existence concludes
This crimson moon dies

Beneath the willow, I fade to dust
The sullen songs of the fallen I ride
Beyond the dusk, I fade into mist
And among the fallen souls I reside

Come to me - fearless death
Free me from this dismal shell
Take from me - forsaken life
A dark sullen farewell

Entombed by darkness night
A chilling silence of death cries
Existence concludes
This crimson moon dies

Alone in darkness, I call your name
To be welcomed beyond the pale veil of death
In stillness I fade, to this slumber
The eternal winds take my last breath

In shadows I now wait
For deliverance of this life
A forsaken soul
Lost in this world of pain and strife
I lay in eternal rest
Awaiting the final judgment
Lifeless, cradled by death
Sounds of dying echoes in the distance
The life without the pain of living
A journey into the great vast unknown
All that remains, the lost memories
In victorious death, forever alone
