Some guy Music and lyrics combine to paint evocative scenes in the mind's eye. The atmosphere is damn-near tangible. I suppose I'd call it doom-tinged melodic progressive death (labels are annoying, but if that sounds good to you, this is a great one) Favorite track: The Mist And The Ocean.

Track Name: The Mist And The Ocean
Down in the heart of the dark
Under the surface beneath
Be wise to read these words
for they might decide your fortune
On their way through mist on dark waters
a ship has lost it's course
Rocks ahead but there's something more - the mist comes alive

Temptress is my name and I lure
the weak hearts of men into temptation

Serpentia is my name and I sway
my tongue with the wickedest persuasion

And I am the queen of us three
beauty is my virtue, I am Deirdré

Men; we shall stay here and enjoy
the hospitality of the sirens three
Inflicted by spirits, cursed
The crew sail on into certain death
Into enchantment the men fall
Sirens, they feed on lost souls at sea
The tale is said to be as such
that one turns into stone in the depths
by only one touch as deadly as can be
Unfortunate ones are those, who live to tell the tale

Temptress is my name and I lure
the weak hearts of men into temptation

The mist and the ocean
Track Name: Bitter Roots
Stone sculpted poetry and roses from the funeral
A memorial to death, words of admiration
The dance of leaves in early autumn haze
As with the constant wind comes the grief

Colors won’t describe nor will they provide
With flavor, nothing but grey leaving a bitter scent
No release, enslaved by the past, see the sun go down
for the last time before darkness master my rest

Here; the caskets where spirits as captives lie
Holy ashes to be dust before materialized
Darkly veiled the heart to be forgotten
Knowing death would bring enlightenment
Souls it wants to rid, souls unpure; birthed from bitter roots

Outside the prisoners bound to hear
the wind whirling 'round
Their presence immortally screaming
even after their death
Track Name: To End The Misery
As seasons turns summer ends
Everything around me withers, drained of life
But I'm still standing, as frozen in time
Abandoned and alone, awaiting the silence

Swallowed by the mist of morning,
disappearing into the pale
Carried away by the autumn storms
that scars the landscape

Ashen skies and dark horizons
The early winter's frost
sends a chill down my spine
I'm awaiting the silence
To end the misery

On the first day of November
Snow fell like ashes from the sky
From a fire long since extinct
Like the fire inside of me
That had ceased to exist, left me unable to feel
It was a fire that would never burn again

The sun is blinding my eyes
Everything around me has come back to life
But I'm withered and cold, the perpetual winter
inside of me still reigns supreme

I closed my eyes and felt the world fade away
Track Name: Into The Pale
I awake and embrace my loss
as I fell asleep my life's ruin remain
In my sleep

I am without agony
Surely if I could I would walk towards
the lightning in there

Haunted my screams as let myself go
I feel I am slipping, the cold touch my soul
Reaching my purpose with the wave of my hand
my future I set, this - with a dark celebration

People who once have crossed that path
are the paradox of regrets and search of forgiveness
They live in a silent nowhere alone
and keep their secret inside waiting

Heavy burden as heavy can be,
waiting, desperately waiting
To be set free from agony
Desperately waiting...
I see myself from a godly point of view
what I never learned, what I never knew
how is this - I am watching me
if there's a god to see my sins?

The end has come to get me
or the orb of life seem cricked
From dark came the light
When it was born, into darkness it shall return
As spoke the prophecy

Not my fault nor by my hand,
but from the compact hands of nothing
Being the wind, earth shall be cast

Woke up screaming one night in cold sweat
The words felt like burning flesh in me
So real I cowardly weakened and turned inwards

Now I write this letter, to whomever see what I write
My words are the words of something beneath
I do not say god or wicked beings
I simply say these words are not mine and they are true

People who once have crossed that path
are the paradox of regrets and search of forgiveness
They live in a silent nowhere alone
and keep their secret inside
Written in parts like a play
this is the mysteries of the darkness
in your soul, the abyss you hide
Track Name: The Man Who Swallowed The Sun
Night falls, as I’ve slained the sun
and I slumber, in a midwinter haze - so cold and dark
Embracing me as if in a womb

Let this night never be over
Don't let me wake up to another morning
Let me dwell in the shadows
Never to see the burning light of day
Let this night never be over
I've seen it all, I've felt it all
Nothing can bring me back now

I fall yet again, into this midwinter haze
But the pain still lingers
Inside of me, like a sickness
Oh night, embrace me again,
spare me from this disease
Let me float in the comfort of your womb, forever!

I am the man who swallowed the sun
And painted the sky in black

Oh night, embrace me again,
spare me from this disease
Let me float in the comfort of your womb
Let me slumber in the midwinter haze - so cold and dark
Let me dwell in the shadows
Never to wake up
Never to see the sun
Track Name: One With The Shadows
Many are those who walk in the dark
Suspicious of the shadows closing in

Fear not the shadow but man instead
Let darkness sink in deep in your soul
Lead me to the dark of the heart
So the world may never harm me again

The sign of the serpent represented

Still today I lure the weak into temptation
But what is evil in their eyes these days

Oh mighty father I am free, free from your grasp
No longer your slave Free from your chains

I state abandonment, now take my hand
And you shall be released from the strings of your god
No longer a puppet but a burning spirit instead
It's not my work nor my deed, the spirits are leaving me

"Remember son, do not wander in the dark"

Fear not the shadow but man instead
Let darkness sink in deep in your soul (your soul is mine)
What makes me adore this so,
leading me in a trance Further into the heart of the dark?

Symbols and signs shall bring forth time
what never was completed
The horns of Baphomet is set straight
Into a hole where all guidelines shall be thrown
life shall be as before in its purest form
Track Name: Constance Willow
On the other side of the rope
This is the right time, on the right side
One of these nights when lights are long gone
From burning

No flame what so ever, her mind already passed
Sorrow, you’ll know her now when she’s dead
Constance Willow

Look at one of her paintings; green and flowered
Leave no impression of the woman smiling beside
Many days and nights saw the hell she caused to herself

At first I thought the blood once released would heal me
like addiction repeating the same procedures
medicating her illness since she was fragile and little
no one considered her alive or even breathing the same air?

Constance willow she passed away
Drowned in a lake of sorrow before she drowned herself
in a lake by the forest
Now haunted

At first I thought the blood once released would heal me
Like addiction repeating the same procedures

Envenomed by the herbs she suffer even more
Gaining the final courage to commit her deeds
In life she molested strangers she found

As a child her father made her do the most terrible things
And so she became familiar with torture and pain

Customized a technique of her own, but she later called it medicine
Born a bastard in a family of four, she was the outcast - condemned to wander

Little did they know of her faith when they left her cradle in the night
By the clearing called devils wrath, somewhere deep in the forest where one doesn't wander
That night's spirit gathered - Constance Willow
In death and life with her destiny sealed, she grew up not knowing why she did what she did
But when she found out that is when she let life go, unfortunately to evil

Constance willow she passed away
Drowned in sorrow she drowned herself
Now haunted

At first I thought the blood once released would heal me
Like addiction repeating the same procedures
