UNCROWN (2020)
Segundo álbum para los suecos que nos ofrecen nueve nuevos temas que a groso modo podemos clasificar de black melódico, centrado en un sonido de referencias claras a las bandas escandinavas de los noventa en donde también podemos apreciar un aporte de death melódico. El álbum discurre con un sonido potente de guitarras, sin llegar a ser atronadora pero si con suficiente espacio y personalidad para cimentar el sonido de todo el álbum. El apartado de las guitarras ofrece una vertiente que sin llagar a ser del todo épica si que no le pierde el norte a las influencias melódicas que comentábamos antes, sin embargo su presencia y fuerza es tan importante que logra también traer elementos atmosféricos al conjunto. El contrapunto de la música de Ages, que lo lleva a terrenos más oscuros y densos se lo debemos a la pesadez del sonido que hace acto de presencia de la mano del bajo y que aleja un tanto del sonido más limpio y abierto y lo sumerge en estructuras un tanto más enrevesadas. Esta oscuridad también se ve refrendada por el apartado vocal, mucho más profundo, con unas voces graves que a veces se acercan a terrenos death, pero que encuentran sutiles contrapuntos en algunos coros que hacen acto de presencia para completar la propuesta. Por último cabe destacar que no hace un uso inapropiado y excesivo de los teclados, si que es cierto que hacen su aparición de manera mesurada aportando su dosis de melodía y épica no lo es menos que la melodía se ha trabajado desde lo más profundo del sonido de las guitarras, en las cuales se ha dejado poco lugar para las partes acústicas y limpias. En definitiva, un trabajo de black melódico correcto, que destaca por un sonido de guitarras inmenso. (8,1).




1. Burn Them 04:51
Burn them Burn them all Eyes of the overseers peer at the dark descending blight. The observers of ruin The witness’ of demise They abhor and detest They perlustrate and condemn. Wardens of the pariahs Nurturing the spectators of self-annihilation The defiance of cognitive dissonance perpetuates subservient demeanors Unyielding to the weight of iridescent insights Unperceiving to the words of the benights The scourge comes alive and the cause is reborn Reborn from zeal Thriving through malice Fed by vengeance Bred by greed Permeated by the demagogues Eyes of the overseers peer at the dark descending blight. The observers of ruin The witness’ of demise Rise, reprisal is impending Wrath of Ages shall be upon them  
2. Illicit State 04:35
Come behold the prophets of hate The spite and terror brought upon man With guile, dishonor and hate Their feeble minds corrupt. Malevolence incarnate Wrought by callous bedlamites Prophets and icons Deception and deceit That, what shall never be depicted the serpent of sickness and disorder There will never be sovereignty There will never be supremacy There is only annihilation and unconditional Eradication Covenants of self-immolation Tormentors of innocence Your absolute betrayal of life Justifies naught but utter defeat Your philistine despicable reign, the plague of your venomous words, your illicit state shall be scorched to a desert of abandoned faith.   
3. Herolds of Enslavement 04:55
In the dark of a void In the age of repentance A past on fire, bereft of havens In their visions they bask Gorgers of gospel Persecutors of impugners Shepherds of fear Sheltered by impunity Herolds of enslavement Cowardice harboring a shrine of ancient zeal Dethrone them all Expatriate the blight of humankind Festering Conglomerate of tyrant minds End them all Ravage the self-proclaimed fathers Their end forgone The rubicon of Ages The culmination of an ancient strife The fall of enslavement Essence of the mind Foundations now unconstrained. Will of the broken, dragooned to follow, retaliates and abrogates the folly
4. A Hollow Tomb 04:58
Begone, portal to the light The gates are being sealed Delusions, devious and foul Abolished and revoked A burning codex, torn from the weak, from frail arms and trembling hands Pages wilting, the symbols buried The past shall be but a hollow tomb A tomb, of eternal remorse. And history will follow, in our wake wake of ascension Temple of the new light A beacon in the darkest of hours We, the vanguards of the new dawn, emerging for the meek Millennia of heresy Ages of subjugation All the blood for nought All the strife now void   
5. Dominionism 04:43
Begone, portal to the light The gates are being sealed Delusions, devious and foul Abolished and revoked A burning codex, torn from the weak, from frail arms and trembling hands Pages wilting, the symbols buried The past shall be but a hollow tomb A tomb, of eternal remorse. And history will follow, in our wake wake of ascension Temple of the new light A beacon in the darkest of hours We, the vanguards of the new dawn, emerging for the meek Millennia of heresy Ages of subjugation All the blood for nought All the strife now void  
6. Undivine 04:37
A fading husk, an empty shell A life you lived and lost in sin Incomplete, betrayed you fell Pondering what could have been The trial that was meant to come The bliss, the final light beyond Absent, like a mind undone Gone just like the hate you spawned Witness, legacies Purged from time Purged from mind Shards of guile and spite remnants wilt away Now, at the end End, of your cycle There is nothing There is no one Come, let it all be gone Witness, memories Lost in time The undivine Fragments of bigotry The last remains of your enmity Face the night, oh finite one Once engulfed your faith undone Revel in the time you seized Life and memories received Truth is always in our reach But so many keep the leash As the ages pass us by Spare no pity for the meek   
7. Uncrown 04:32
Eye for an eye. Desecrate Day by day. Decontaminate More and more. Retaliate Liars, on pyres, on fire, on fire Death in the shape of a faith Stifling progress and pace Now behold the tenets of fear, disappear Doctrines begone The hive undone Codices burnt to ash The glaive above Hung by a thread Is bound to fall and purge Time to purify Time to sanctify Time to restore Parity Time for amends Time for atonement Time for absolution Now Strike down Rain down With vengeance After ages of tyranny and exile Come now, rejoice and revel A crusade of clarity has begun Uncrown and usurp the crest The symbol of utter detestation Rip and tear the manifest Cleanse unholy scripture Reject the commandments of folly A new order is approaching 8. The Death of Kings of Old 05:00
Time and time again Demystified Answers lies beyond The crucified Empires fallen Crumbling in the dust The death of kings of old Eternally crushed Time and time again Vilified Our will be done You will abide Tyrants fallen Buried in the soil Left to be forgotten And despoiled The return of folly The rise of lunacy Bewildering to lucid eyes Regression upon us Intellectual decline Unmaking progress in its wake Call to end the armistice Cause and effect Leniency is bygone Rise to face the light Not a call for vengeance A call for amends The affliction must be cured With dignity and pride Of the Ages  
9. Pyres 04:47
  In no uncertain terms; inherent in life is death.
This is all we know.
The wage of life is death.
Extinction is the rule.
Survival is the exception.
Cast aside the divine,
pave your path with insight
Acquit and unshackle your mind.
Set the pyres of lies alight

No more shall pronouncements
of eternal rewards corrupt us
Assertions from the cloth will
break under the mallets of progression
Inconceivable, vacuous affirmations
sprung from darker times

The wake-up call has come and gone
The time has come for us to quench the flames
Bringers of the fall
authors of demise
rejoice no more
The wake-up call has come and gone
The time has come for us to quench the flames 
  42:58
