MORIBUND (2022)
Primer álbum de estudio, ciertamente esperado para esta banda, en donde encontramos miembros de los suecos Necrophobic y de los holandeses Cryptosis, dando buena cuenta de un black con un sonido elaborado en donde destacan influencias tanto de estilos como el thrash, como de elementos oscuros. Un álbum que por una parte suena directo, crudo y potente, sin que ello sea impedimento para que una mayor pausa en la escucha nos permita descubrir secciones de thrash o death con un peso significativo a la hora de valorar el sonido del álbum. Un álbum que de alguna manera suena directo y potente, atreviéndome a hablar de cierta crudeza inherente en el sonido, aunque el trabajo de producción logra enfatizar si cabe una atmósfera mucho más oscura que la que en principio podríamos suponer. El resultado de una potente, violenta y dinámica batería, con unos riffs infernales y que muchas veces traen reminiscencias a un thrash de corte clásico, fundido con elementos black logrando un equilibrio sustancial entre riffs crudos, casi que primitivos, al tiempo que son capaces de mantener una delgada linea melódica en segundo plano, presente tanto en las secciones más directas como en aquellas que se ofrece un sonido con más groove, completado todo ello con una voz de corte agresivo, totalmente cruda sin apenas concesiones, dando como resultado final un álbum perfectamente ensamblado con una sonoridad mayúsculo, cuidado al detalle que deja un sabor a sonido clásico, no ya solo si hablamos de black, sino que traspasando fronteras para adentrarse en estilos del metal clásico. (7,7).





1. World Serpent (Devourer of Dreams) 06:26
To free us from sin The night cuts our veins Collect our blood In a chalice of broken dreams Shadow our path A man made behemoth to swallow us all Risen above The scent of the night in dismal fog The night belongs to the hunter And the hunter is made by the night Ouroboros swallows its tail With a hunger growing stronger by the bite The one The immortal The shadow The sun The eternal World Serpent Free us from pain From the search of a morning bright When the night is all Only death will bring us light Here colossus reigns We are all imprisoned in its shadow We'll feed the beast To free our souls from sin Of steel and blood Of flesh and stone Of souless pride A giant serpent World Serpent Devourer of dreams We're all his servants Devourer of dreams We've become his tail The world serpent devours us all Gods and men Swallowed in a black hole Of life and death The scaled reigns supreme As his slaves We feed him with our dreams The night belongs to the hunter And the hunter is made by the night Ouroboros swallows its tail With a hunger growing stronger by the bite The one The immortal The shadow The sun The eternal World Serpent World Serpent Devourer of dreams We're all his servants Devourer of dreams   
2. Draugr 07:50
  The curse upon my bones
is not a curse of death
But a curse of life eternal

Fire !
Fire !
Fire, not from flame
Light up the dark
with hunger unlamed
Shine !
Shine and distract my dream
Cross the bounds
on a glowing seam
Draugr

Follow !
Follow a trail of smoke
Rise !
Change !
Wear the night as a cloak
Pale !
Pale, deathlike blue
Glimmer in the night
Infest
Grow
Fear
Will tear your soul apart
Let its blade slit your throat
Death is just a new start
In the Dark
Draugr
Pass the torch
Rise
Walk
Draugr
Damned are those on the trail of hate
Draugr
Curses their fate

Derange your mind
behex your soul
Til I pass it on to the living
This curse I carry alone
The curse upon my bones
is not a curse of death
But a curse of night infernal
without a final breath
without a final rest
Low listen for whispers
The dead speak in the dark
All vicious they glisten
As hatred lights their spark
Lecrotic
Join the damned beyond
One of us
Reverants
Another undead spawned

Thirst !
Thirst not for life
But hunger to bring death
Endless strike
Hatred
Hatred
Obsessed with hate
The curse of life eternal
Envenom our fate
Fear
Will tear your soul apart
Let its blade slit your throat
Death is just a new start
In the dark
Draugr
Pass the torch
Rise
Walk
Draugr
Damned are those on the trail of hate
Draugr
Curses their fate
3. Let the Beast Run Wild 04:48
Long shadows by the last of rays Cast in solid black from a horizon ablaze Release the hounds let them reign in the night There's a pyre to ignite Unchain the flames - the devil's shackled child Let the beast run wild Like shooting stars in a fiery arc Tall the flames as they rise to enlighten the dark They hit the target one by one Behold a soul-fueled sun The wind makes a solemn vow and the flames get riled Let the beast run wild On the incandescent bed a heart of ember beats A crimson pulse in the dark is born in the heat The spirits rise with glowing fury hungry to be free Break the chains of mortal bonds into a flaming spree Nightborne Nightborne Let the flames reach up high Nightborne Fireborne Fireborne Let the dead curse the sky Fireborne Infernal Burial Funeral Infernal Flames know no sorrow as they drape the dead No sign of grief in the heart of the fiery red A somber calm is nothing to attain Let madness reign Join the feverish dance over charred bones piled Let the beast run wild  
4. Luciferian Age 04:14
Shining one son of dawn Spread your light wide and far Open eye, wings torn Shine bright Morning star Destroy the worlds Liberate Grand executioner Black light illuminate Enlighten us Lucifer Going to war Blackened rage Infernal dawn Luciferian age Let the world burn Infernal warfare Let them perish in the flames Like a solar flare Fall to rise Purify Earth scorched great purge Black flame lit again Restore your shine Demiurge Demiurge Creator of all Spread your rage The false king must fall  
5. This Night Seems Endless 07:17
  This night seems endless
Endless, dark, cold
This night seems endless
With no dawn to behold

This night seems endless
Like fear frozen in time
This night seems endless
But this endless night is mine

The abyss is endless
Eternal is my fall
This abyss is endless
And the godless dark is all

Hear them call
Hear them call
When you fall
The rope of fear is all

The abyss is endless
Starless without shine
The abyss is endless
But the endless abyss is mine

Hear them call
Hear them call
From the deep

Hear them call
Hear them call
No sleep
6. He Who Saw the Abyss 04:32
From the skies with wrath To execute the gods plan By the scent of the deep red path The beast becomes man Crowned by immortals The mortal finds his thirst for life A child of destruction Plant the seeds of a bitter strife What is given life Can also get the grant of demise The gods keep the secret Of immortality for those up high When all hopes gone And you stare into the deep Embrace your death in peace And the wisdom that you reap Loose your guard To the reptile grin And slowly drift away Whispered lies Of the serpent's tongue Will lead you all the way He who saw the abyss He who sees the unknown As sorrow follows wrath The winds of death will claim his throne Life, which you look for, You will never find For when the gods created man, they let death be his share, and life withheld in their own hand   
7. Moribund 06:32  
8. The Origin 05:36
In the darkest hour Man created god To embrace death at full To see beyond flesh and blood But as the selfish divinity Had no time for pitiful fools The Devil's demons came forth To mirror our sinful souls Man created god And gave up on all his dreams Now the only one answering our prayers Is Satan as it seems Now the origin lies forgotten They blew life into a dream When you pray to an absent god Then the Devil rules supreme Spiritus The hellfire has been lit Spiritus And we all enjoy the feast Spiritus By the lake of fire we fuel the flame Sceleratis All hail the beast Now the origin lies forgotten And there is no one left to tell They dreamed up a blissful heaven And we became the servants of hell 
9. Sorrow, Fire & Hate 05:48
A hundred years and a hundred more The path I stride seems endless Although beauty meets the eye I tread this shore so restless Now as the snow silent falls For a hundred years or more All the frostbitten flowers Shattered on the shore As I grow old on dunes cursed I dream of setting sails Bid farewell to haunted ground Hale up the brails! But here I stand once again Like many times before No wind, no ship and little hope To ever leave this shore From Acheron To Styx I'd rather go Through sorrow, fire and hate I'd rather go than walk these plains in a hundred years of wait I'd rather go Through lamentation and oblivion I'd rather go to the final shore Where all that is left is hate Ravished Spellbound Perished Ghoul Chained Shackled Deranged Soul Ghosts and ghouls silent wander By my side slowly Their hollow stare bears no sign Of fire once holy I will become one of them As time eats my soul And when the young see these plains I will be their ghoul 
10. Requiem 05:02
Let them flames burn
Let them dance of the dead like flames do
Let the dead go

Let the night fall
Let it color your soul like nights do
Let it be you

Let the memories in
Let the memories sing like memories do
Never let them go.

Let your days end
Let your days end in the life you know
Let them go

Let the light fade
Let the light fade to black from gray
To night from day

Let the dead speak
Let the dead speak like only dead can do
Let their voices embrace you

Ring the bells
Let them sound far and wide
Ring the bells
Let the world hear our lament
Ring the bells
Let the final hymn chime
Ring the bells
For we have reached the end of our time
