Shades of Night Descending (demo)
2. In Graven Image
Through funeral mists , dissonant chant surrounds
Aura of impurity obscured
Cimmerian shadows cast by moonlit skies
Seek solace amid the withered boughs
Winter shrouds the land in twilight frost
Alone to wander the darkened path.....
"With sheets of fog spaced in horrible bands across a sky that curves,recedes,
descends,formed by the most sinister black smoke..."
Beyond the mournful veil of faded sunsets
Graven image etched in timeless sorrow
During the dark hours of winter's misery
Archaic vision of impiety's gift
Evoken winds , speak in sinister shades
Draped in nightfall ,eternal skies
Sanctuary , unfound in labyrinthine courts
The impending silence--discordant....
3. Shades Of Night Descending
"There was no life , no light... A brooding night enveloped all...
Over which darkness and silence reigned supreme"
Gaze into the astral depths
The advent of endlessness
The ill-fated winds of sinister praise
like echoed shrieks as darkness reigns...
Blackened hail shall fall upon the shores of Lethe
As the pitiless winter begins its unending season
Amid the sunless tombs
Tragic symphony of mourning
Abysmal depths have risen
Season of nocturnal reign
4. Towers Of Frozen Dusk
Runic blade of crystal skies
Arise the winter of blackest frost
Through the northwinds mournful chant
In frozen mists and dying light
Abyssic darkness descends on funeral wings....
Ancient towers rise before me
Like blades in the midwinter's sky
I kneel before the gates of black
In the etherial fire of dying sunsets
Within the blackest valleys
In Etah's silent grace
frozen moon , cursed lands
Visions of eternal winter
A vision of dark ages yet to come.....
A spectral dance of beauty and frost
My journey to the Northlands
A return to evil ways
5. Into The Autumn Shade
Somber shadows mourn the dawn of autumn
Within the forest of eternal grievance
Its twisted and withered trees stand lifeless and barren
Cloaking this ancient burial ground in spectral gloom
Lamentations of the dead
Echo through this desolate twilight
As darkness falls and night reveals
A fearful place of frozen grief
Beneath the wings of this mournful angel
Chilling horror grips the spirits of our funeral
As we fall into eternal September
The procession to interment
A dirge of misery sounds......
Onward into the darkness
Among the doleful shadows
Our graves await in silence
A realm of haunted sleep
The ages of time mean nothing
Perpetual sorrow is born.....
Commence the rites of burial
For the season of mourning is upon us.......
