David Fischer Very emotional journey, love the melancholic & depressive melodies. Excellent as a full listen! Favorite track: Of Forests and Troubled Past.

prosectus This album has great black metal atmosphere. It has fast sections but that is balanced out by slower sections that are my favorite part of the album. The vocalist has a very versatile array of screams and growls. Each song is given plenty of time to develop with interesting transitions and varied rhythms. My favorite 2019 release for sure.

about

"A veil of shame plunged your last years into the common numbness,

leading you to this forest, dark and sorrowful.

Your past life left behind, you enter with the mind of a broken soul, destined to perish in silence and solitude.

This is your last fortress. This great ash tree seems to call you.

Its branches are leafless, appearing to be dead, claiming to be the only answer you ever longed for. You will approach it.

This land will do the rest. Spring has nothing to do with the regeneration of its foliage, it is the tense strings of those who have given up that give it back its stature.

And then... when you are becoming part of that tree, you want your life back..."

Track Name: Intro: The Artificial Light
Asserving my soul down from inside,
a corrupted plot
designed in collapse of my own delusion
I, alone, bring my own suffering
I, alone, have answers to be asked
I will not fail
fail to the opportunity to drink to myself as paths are traced on this once sacred land
I propose my legacy as a man
and I will not be the one unforsaken

Behold,
The great blight
The end of the human sight
The sun is no longer
the only light
For we, the blinded
Are no longer able to choose
We have lose interest
Only following
the artificial light
Walking through void
Track Name: Gathering Believers Among Sheep
All these false designs became the pulse of my reality
It pushed forward like the blood flows from a sliced throat
I am sorry for I don't know what I did
beyond the land of passion i've got for you
A kingdom of love and desire

The stories were told
And the beliefs were sold.
For a pound of pure gold
Secrets were untold

Dust flew when the pillars hit the ground.
Of past years spent hearing useless sounds
Countless doors opening and closing
Where paths once meet, eyes reveal a wandering

There are the strains of life
Always seeking to fight
Believing it is in its rights
And Calling it a might

I've got my ideas on this world
I was born and lived under its reign
I've got only false gods to behold
Always been waiting for any sign

My days always seemed darker than my nights
Waiting to learn how to properly live my life

Consciousness weaken by the cold breeze
flying over the summit of the trees
Singing a cold and cruel melody
Thereby forming a sad elegy

A close look from above
A chant from the kings
A final understanding while the
The wind whispers every one of my sins
A close look from above
A chant from the kings
A final understanding while the
The wind whispers every one of my sins

A wolf pack died under a waterfall
Chasing its own death, answering the call
Ending trapped between the two wrong walls
Their laments are still echoing the halls

When the prey is left behind
When the hunt is switching sides
Where bitterness arise, a polluted design
When the blood is diluted by the rain

When the prey is left behind
When the hunt is switching sides
Where bitterness arise, a polluted design
When the blood is diluted by the rain.

I must go forth
I shall endure
Windows are closed
Of past years spent alone
Hearing useless lore
Rotten to the core
Track Name: These Battlefields, Where None Walk Twice
Grey is the sky, short is the sight
A life roaming in eternal blight
For i can not be less than what I already am
One breath at a time, one step off the line
The innocence gone, drowned in the lies

A quick look to the last sunlight
As we march our journey through the night
A last chance to make a difference
In this meaningless life of emptiness

I hear the call
The master observes
The master is clear
A man standing is not worth anything

Join forces through death and greatness
Lives took as if it was for nothing
As if it was for nothing

We march sides by sides
On these battlefields.
Memories of war.
Years of glory.
Bloodstained battlefields
Bloodstained battlefields

The roar of fire, a bloodstained battleground
At dawn, already no battles to win

A night in the dark does not let me see through the day
Awaking in the morning does not let me see through the day
The bells are tolling for the death of a great monarch
At dawn of mourning, seven days in the dark

I hear a call
The master observes
The master is clear
A man standing is not worth anything

We march sides by sides
On these battlefields
Memories of war
Years of glory
Bloodstained battlefields
Bloodstained battlefields

Upon the dead bodies of those who bled for us
Where the water reek unspeakable death

Soldiers of liberty imprisoned in their duty
While we forget their lives taken for nothing
We lead all these great wars
Knowing that it led us all too far
The real life is spent,
But In our dreams, it is lived

Greatness reached, with no one to witness
Track Name: The Slow Death of the Years & Other Omens
Beyond the flesh and beyond progress
An alternate story of belief and glory
The sources are dried and the truth is denied
Sovereigns fall like the rain on the ground
Useless reigns swept by the wind as they wept
A solid stance that was since unbeaten
For I'm all that is and all that was
I can not live unless I'm among those who die

From the hills of vast sighting,
From the rivers forever flowing,
The winds ascending the mountains
From the damp cold of october rains

drowned in shallow marshes
Black earth covered in my ashes
Wherever I look i am still in the coffin
A field of brambles that will never soften

Great are the anchors that keep me from drifting
The course of the ages prevented me from mourning
A solemn hymn ponctuated by wailing and tears
That goes on and on through the slow death of the years

The walls are close, I'm where I chose
To step back from this place where I come from
The walls are close, I'm where I chose
Reaching for the light even in the night

The spark is lost and I can not rekindle it,
Where I go there is nothing left to be lit
Only once I listen to my own voices
And from the depths I arise

From the hills of vast sighting,
From the rivers forever flowing,
The winds ascending the mountains
From the damp cold of october rains

From the hills of vast blinding
From the rivers forever drying
There's no wind left in the mountains
From the damp cold of december plains

The less I see the more I live
The more I live the less I give
The stone where my name is written
My words still heard in the distance
May your path lead you away
May you never be led astray
From now let me sleep away the day
So I can dream of that sky I always saw grey
Track Name: Of Forests and Troubled Past
A veil of shame plunged my last years
into the common numbness
colliding with the various spheres
of my mind in distress
While the sun gathered all my forces,
the night became my mistress
My march took me where the trees and mountains formed my last fortress

The moonlight screams
since the sun already died
The veil of night
falls like if it had nothing to hide
Blurred is the land
where none might never walk
Nothing left to withstand
the cold embrace of the wind

Reaching the edge
the forest is now behind
Leaning on a tree
there is no one, not a sign
While my feet are sinking
in this unforgiving land
Am I lost and Am I
leaving too much behind

A great ash tree is standing ahead
solid and strong, its wood harder than lead
its branches are leafless
appearing to be dead
As I walk under its shadow
a scent of darkness, death and sorrow

Blurred is the land
where none might ever walk
Nothing left to withstand
the cold embrace of the wind

Blurred is the land
where none might ever walk
Nothing left to withstand
the cold embrace of the wind

The path of the unworthy, where I left my heart turn to stone
The gates of the forest, where I am not the only one
The trees are my temple, where nothing is left undone
the path I will take, even though I will already be gone

My feet left the ground
I was leaving at last
I am held by the neck
am I leaving at last?
Visions of the past, screaming
places where I already hid
while I try to get rid of my life
