A DYING WISH (2021)
Cuarto álbum de estudio para los germanos después de casi seis años de silencio, regresando si cabe con un álbum mucho mas centrado en ofrecer un sonido que aúna tanto el black de corte melódico con  secciones más acorde con el death. El trabajo de guitarras en este álbum se antoja soberbio, sabiendo construir un entramado de guitarra limpias que sirven tanto para dar sustentos a los temas en sus parte inicial como cuando aparecen en la parte central de los mismos, para añadir un componente entre melancólico y melódico al conjunto. El ritmo juega con partes lentas y otras mucho más rápidas y directas, cuando hacen acto de aparición las guitarra y la batería van siguiendo la estela de la guitarras limpias, inyectando un plus de agresividad y contundencia que se ve refrendado cuando las voces emplean la agresividad y la vinolencia para añadir un punto de frialdad al conjunto. A diferencias de otras bandas que se resguardan en los fuertes contrastes entre agresividad y melodía y visten su música de una falsa apariencia extrema, Thulcandra ofrece contrastes que se antojan necesarios para sacar adelante un álbum que no desentonaría en la faceta más black melódica de los noventa sin renunciar en ningún momento a las texturas más densa y profundas del death. Sin lugar a duda Thulcandra se ha sumergido en un álbum en donde cada detalle ha sido cuidado y que sobresale por saber combinar a la perfección un tono melódico presente tanto en las partes más lentas como en las agresivas, sin que todo ello desentona en un trasfondo de frialdad y agresividad.

1. Funeral Pyre 04:51
   Within the scars, our iron will prevail
Beyond all gloom, our victory ablaze
We gather, encounter, to summon our master
We conjure, bewail, and bemoan the final chapter

Within the voiceless ones, moonlight, and frozen suns
Beyond the vast abyss, we embrace a call of bliss
In blood red skies, a black flame shall arise
The void, enslaved, in wisdom purified
Moldered, and rotten, ascending northern lights
The thorns of lies, enchant in pitch-black nights

Funeral Pyre across the cosmic sea
Within the stars, remembrance recalls
Beyond all grief, we obtain our loss

Within the scars, our iron will prevail
Beyond all gloom, our victory ablaze
We gather, encounter, to summon our master
We conjure, bewail, and bemoan the final chapter

Within the voiceless ones, moonlight, and frozen suns
Beyond the vast abyss, we embrace a call of bliss
In blood red skies, a black flame shall arise
The void, enslaved, in wisdom purified
Moldered, and rotten, ascending northern lights
The thorns of lies, enchant in pitch-black nights

Funeral Pyre with a glance you are set free
2. Scarred Grandeur 04:43
I rot in stench of your descent Drowned in filth until the very end In foul blood my body will ascend Soaked in grease I dwell in eternal night As scarred grandeur, I forever stand my ground In peace and war, of iron thorns uncrowned With ancient might, eternal spirits rise Towards the night, in the honor of your light Arisen, forgotten, cursed and misbegotten Ashamed, disgraced, I fall from grace As scarred grandeur, I forever stand my ground In peace and war, of iron thorns uncrowned With ancient might, eternal spirits rise Towards the night, in the honor of your light Disowned, enthroned, rejected, and denied Betrayed, deceived, I spew in your face As scarred grandeur, I forever stand my ground In peace and war, of iron thorns uncrowned With ancient might, eternal spirits rise Towards the night, in the honor of your light Arisen, forgotten, cursed and misbegotten Ashamed, disgraced, I fall from grace  
3. Orchard of Grievance 00:39   instrumental
4. In Vain 05:53
  Below the blackest sun, above the brightest stars
I drown in emptiness, conform to cosmic scars
Beyond the moonless skies, into primordial bliss
Perished in solitude, I am purified in formless abyss

Forevermore, in mourning, all faith will be torn to shreds
Absent beliefs, vanished, gone and unredeemed
A spark of life, embraces eternal night
As we dissolve in constant light
Lost, in vain, I drown in forlorn hope
Enchained, forever, the cursed will rot in hell

Onward damnation, ageless perdition
My spirit sets free, my deeds forgiven

Awaken my divine, embraced to misery
Aroused through hidden flames, I am kissed by victory

Forevermore, in mourning, all faith will be torn to shreds
Absent beliefs, vanished, gone and unredeemed
A spark of life, embraces eternal night
As we dissolve in constant light
Lost, in vain, I drown in forlorn hope
Enchained, forever, the cursed will rot in hell

Below the blackest sun, above the brightest stars
I drown in emptiness, conform to cosmic scars
Beyond the moonless skies, into primordial bliss
Perished in solitude, I am purified in formless abyss
5. Nocturnal Heresy 05:34
Within our might, towards a holy war One for one, we tear the night Within our sight, we carve the gods In nocturnal heresy we align and dwell Gathering hunger in the night To hail and kill, we reunite Summoning darkness, shining bright In silver steel, a shade of light Beyond horizons, the son of storms The cry of ravens, hated and scorned Truth and lies, in ancient times The primal ruler takes a final breath Gathering hunger in the night To hail and kill, we reunite Summoning darkness, shining bright In silver steel, a shade of light Embraced by shadows, in despair Triumph and steel, hard to bear Black flames burning in my veins My guide to searing eternal flames Embraced by shadows, in despair Triumph and steel, hard to bear Gathering hunger in the night To hail and kill, we reunite Summoning darkness, shining bright In silver steel, a shade of light Beyond horizons, the son of storms The cry of ravens, hated and scorned Truth and lies, in ancient times The primal ruler takes a final breath Within our might, towards a holy war One for one, we tear the night Within our sight, we carve the gods In nocturnal heresy we align and dwell
6. The Slivering Silver 04:36
   In an aura of light, our lord embraces bright
Afar the frozen ground, behind the dead and drowned
Towards the left-hand path, I take the hand of wrath
In silent storms I bear, the final oath I swear

Beyond the gates, I slay the gathered ones
Enchanting cries, aside the blackest suns
The slivering silver, silent and cold
To frozen souls, fearful to unfold

Embracing darkness, the gates of light
Forever blind, eternal night
With crawling gloom, in feeble screams
The slivering silver, fills your tomb
With eternal fire, in blackest flames
The slivering silver, in my veins

With remaining years go by, I perceive the moonless sky
On wings of thousand deaths, until the veil of time
Into everlasting night, I drowned in afterglow
My enshrouded wraith I fear, whispering so clear

Beyond the gates, I slay the gathered ones
Enchanting cries, aside the blackest suns
The slivering silver, silent and cold
To frozen souls, fearful to unfold

Embracing darkness, the gates of light
Forever blind, eternal night
With crawling gloom, in feeble screams
The slivering silver, fills your tomb
With eternal fire, in blackest flames
The slivering silver, in my veins

In an aura of light, our lord embraces bright
Afar the frozen ground, behind the dead and drowned
Towards the left-hand path, I take the hand of wrath
In silent storms I bear, the final oath I swear
7. In Bleak Misery 00:46   instrumental
8. A Shining Abyss 04:55
  Into my vision, the darkest of all worlds
I am the first, and I will be the last
Into my frozen soul, where your remains will foul
I am the bringer of light, my abyss shines so bright

I bring the world death, fire and darkness
Engulfed the flames on the cross

A shining abyss, the last hope disappears
A shining abyss, I discover all your fears

Into my vision, the darkest of all worlds
I am the first, and I will be the last
Into my frozen soul, where your remains will foul
I am the bringer of light, my abyss shines so bright

I bring the world death, fire and darkness
Engulfed the flames on the cross
I bring the world death, fire and darkness
Engulfed the flames on the cross

A shining abyss, the last hope disappears
A shining abyss, I discover all your fears
9. Devouring Darkness 06:06
Desolation, our inner mourning flame The hymn of the dead, arose his throne Devouring darkness, above the frozen sun Beneath the forest of the dead The son of darkness, across the blackened sky The realm of evil, hear the eternal cries Sinful souls, the astral lords Beyond the stars, lies the gate Devastation, the other side awaits Summoning evil forces, spell of wisdom and curses Devouring darkness, above the frozen sun Beneath the forest of the dead The son of darkness, across the blackened sky The realm of evil, hear the eternal cries Hear the prayers, chaos awaits The book of flesh, on the other side  
10. A Dying Wish 07:31
In eternal darkness, right into the night Your spirit has fainted, you were gone from here We call for relief, no place for grief In mourning we shall rise, nothing but mere lies Farewell, until the last of us will dwell Farewell, we will meet in heaven or hell Forever emptiness, soaked in bitterness Your light has lapsed, and you left us here We share our scars, and memories A fateful journey, we dignify in pain Farewell, until the last of us will dwell Farewell, we will meet in heaven or hell  
11. The Spirit of the Night (live) 07:41
When the sun sets forever Your paradise in flames In league with the horned The sons of chaos will march Enlightened by darkness Embraced by fire In a storm of blood The spirit of the night When the moon lies asleep The gates of heaven are fallen Our flaming empire arise Where angels die enslaved When the stars are blackened Foul blood rains from the sky A hymn for the dead In the shadow of the horns Come with us into the night 
12. Night’s Blood (Dissection cover) (live) 07:26
Night haunts and evil lurks in every corner Like plague it's spreading - I behold Loneliness, yet with you autumn night as guest But can you hear my cries? Permeate me, oh night, as with the forest you did for heart is cold, cold as ice I drown in the colour of your eye for a black heart will only find beauty in darkness I breathe it's eternity to absorb the sky where the shadows of death may lie [Chorus:] Feel the call - Nocturnal desire Sorrow's breath - Enchanting cries Night's blood - Taste damnation's wine Feel the pain - Nocturnal desire The devil's path of dark delight Night's blood - Pure damnation's wine Eyes are glowing, burn as hell's fire Mark thy wisdom in my mind Those who never was born but whose darkness eternally devastated the goodness built up through milleniums No time passed, our victory is eternal Our scorn, our silence... A heart dies drowning in the night's blood Everlasting malice for the wicked soul Can't resist the night's sweet blood Loneliness in the embrace of you autumn night The night that froze my cries Deep into the woods glows a fading light I sold my soul, cold as ice I drown in the colour of your eye for a black heart will only find beauty in darkness I breathe it's eternity to absorb the sky where the shadows of death may lie [Chorus:] Feel the call - Nocturnal desire Sorrow's breath - Enchanting cries Night's blood - Taste damnation's wine Feel the pain - Nocturnal desire The devil's path of dark delight Night's blood - Pure damnation's wine
