Beyond the walls of sweet oblivion
You always knew I'm there and whispering
Through every decision, every crossroad at midnight
I took your hand and guided you here
(Predestination? Determination? The will?)
I still hear your voice
"You are the angel of peace..."
I still feel your love
"...you are the angel of mine"
We gave you the power to rule this hollow world
They are just bleeding lambs, thirsty to serve
Fulfill your destiny and walk with gods
Judgement is yours without sins
punishment does not exist...
Walking shadows in the cave
Who holds the fire? who holds the things?
Who brings the light?
When the tales are over
Alone in the dark
When I left my God
I seek your guidance
A corrosive mix of death, doom, psychedelia, and black metal, the Portland quartet’s debut full-length is a bona fide underground monolith that shapeshifts with each listen, all while maintaining its essential heaviness. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 1, 2019
