THE GARDEN OF STRANGLING ROOTS (2021)
Primer Ep para este interesante proyecto procedente de Seattle que ha dado un salto de calidad con respecto a pasadas obras. "Indulgement in Celestial Poisons" abre este Ep en forma de tema acústico con un poso importante en el mismo de un ambiente melancólico y sombrío, sin embargo con el paso al segundo tema "Sorceress of Black Spring" todo se vuelve mucho más crudo y directo, tenemos por un lado las guitarras densas y crudas, que sin llegar a sonar del todo agresivas si que mantienen un tono afilado que se acentúa si cabe más gracias a las voces que también se mueven por un terreno cercano a la crudeza, la oscuridad y la melancolía. La ambientación de todo este EP es soberbia, gracias a la inclusión de teclados en segundo plano que ciertos momentos que propician que podamos asistir a pasajes repletos de melancolía y oscuridad no exentos de algunas dosis de melodía que se muestran mucho más presentan allá don el ritmo de las composiciones se muestran más perezosa y se sumerge en terreno mucho más ponzoñoso. Este EP muestra una mayor riqueza compositiva tanto en los temas más rápidos y directos donde S.C. se permite traer influencias de sonidos clásicos, como en las partes más atmosféricas en donde se permite sumergirnos en un terreno repleto de oscuridad y melancolía, pero que es en donde confluyen ambos estilos cuando este "The Garden of Strangling Roots" muestra todo su potencial. (7,9).




1. Indulgement in Celestial Poisons 01:32   instrumental
2. Sorceress of Black Spring 06:15
 Following the way of the river,
I reach a spring of waters black.
It is said that you can find her here,
Wandering the woods...

Sorceress of black spring,
Master of the forest...
Beguiled by her presence
And under her spell.
Dark queen of twilight,
Temptress of the fates -
I searched so long to find you
And still I wait...

At night I rest beneath the trees
And dream of things of old.
In the dusk she came to me
In the form of looming mist.
The coldness envelops me
As I feel her deathly kiss...

Sorceress of black spring,
Master of the forest...
Beguiled by her presence
And under her spell...
At break of dawn, she leaves me
And I remain here,
And feel the certain pain
I know all too well...

And still she walks
This lonesome wood.
To lure more souls
To be trapped here -

To know the pain of loss...
To feel cold and alone...
To shed the tears of longing...
To know that distance breaks the heart...
To have absolutely nothing...
To go without another...
To never trust anyone...
To live a life of woe...
To dread each minute...
To loathe oneself...
To know the anguish...
To feel the pain...
To detach entirely...
To have nothing to live for...
3. Vampyric Bloodlust 04:47
  In distant realms obscured by fog
Is a growing evil force
Gaining power from the blood
Of the people of the earth.
Ascetic to the sanguine oath,
Night's coven now assembles
To drink the blood of sacrifice
Beneath a godless sky.

Dichotomous existence
Of death and life as one.
Night falls on all of us.
Vampyric bloodlust.

In the secrecy of dusk,
They arise from the crypt
Drink the blood of mortal men
And consume their souls.
Fangs sink into your flesh.
Blood drains from your veins.
Now your skin begins to pale.
Transformation is complete...

Dichotomous existence
Of death and life as one.
Night falls on all of us.
Vampyric bloodlust.
4. The Garden of Strangling Roots 06:04
Under thresholds of the earth, The roots run deep. Grasping out for life Like starved hands to meat. Feeding from death And decomposition. What more is there That we cannot see? Suffocation Amongst the roots. A grasp so tight, We will die here. The plants grow tall. Roots spread out farther. Hungrier now than ever. They strangle us For what they need Grasping out for life From all around... Suffocation Amongst the roots. A grasp so tight, We will die here.
5. Delirium of Mortality 04:49
 My mind wanders...

The way it was
Is the way it is now,
And the way things shall be.
Will I ever be relinquished
From this unwaking dream?

Draw meaning from the days...
To forget in time...
Have I lived this life before?
Am I cursed to repeat?

And so I sit,
Lost in the haze of my own thoughts.
Introspective and alone,
Mesmerized by existence.

Abandoned mind...
Subconscious insight...
Becoming one with self...
And everything...

The time elapses
From point of origin.
What we become
Reveals what's hidden.
Lost in thought,
We find our way.
But just as soon,
We fade away..
6. Arboreal Offering 01:49   instrumental
