A night sky that is covered in stars is a brilliant map of time
And therein burns an evening star; so brilliant, so bright
But if a people forgets the source of its light
The map is a series of long lost paths
Follow this evening star, as long as it's bright
For as long as it's bright...
I have seen the evening star fast fading..
I have seen the evening star long faded..
A fading star, a fading life
A fading map in the night sky
And lo! A new dawn will rise!
Without this star in the sky
They'll act as so it were not
As if history didn't be
And lost are the times of old
And thus, a land without a history...
A hauntingly beautiful, raw, athmospheric and just plain catchy release. Can be many things: a deeply emotive journey or fun riffing that evokes images of classic fantasy, depending on your mood. So good I bought it twice. mxy
Obsequiae is easily one of, if not the best melodic black metal bands out there. Each song is unique in its own way, and deliver a powerful punch to your senses, like a medieval gauntlet straight to your face! The amazing riffs and drum work combined with the use of traditional and historical instruments creates a sound like no other. Oh, and Jake Rogers is a guest singer, so you know this album can only be amazing! Wound of Briccius
