“The skyline is beautifully on fire, and we marvel at its gruesome, twisting light. Reaching out into the firmament, as if to stop the stars from falling.”

We will finally embark on recording our follow up to An Appointed Time over the course of this coming winter. As long, arduous and challenging as it has been – and as life often tends to be – no one is more eager to hear the final product than ourselves.

While there is still more to be done, here is something for you all to tide you over in the meantime.

‘Garden Of Embers’ is a post-apocalyptic tragedy and a cautionary tale, exploring themes of personal desolation. It embodies a stark reflection of physical death in things we hold dear giving way to death of the self, but as more of a dissolution than a rebirth. It’s as musically elaborate as it is emotionally dramatic, weaving and balancing complex counterpoint melodies and shifting instrumental dynamics with moments of grit, heaviness and ferocity. It is both ethereal and crushing; exuberant in its delivery while powerful in its presentation. It will pull you in and won’t let you go until it’s done, and when that happens you won’t forget what it did to you.


Twisted And Decrepit, We Struggle Through The Fields
Dawn, An Ocean In Our Footsteps; We Chase Away The Light
A Clangor Of Bells Herds Us In Droves Toward The Gallery
To Disperse With Weary Hands This Landscape Of Bone

Our Turmoil Scorches Out The Seasons In A Militant Burn
The Feral Dawn Stoked High And Wild In The Hell We Made
Those Of Us Who Remain Yearn For A Sense Of Home
In This Forlorn Abatement, Silhouettes Call My Name

Burden Grips Within; The Jaws That Cripple Serenity
Encased In A House Of Glass, I Am Depleted By The Sun
I Feel Safe In My Prison, Opening My Arms In Embrace
Fingers Of Light Grazing Luminous Walls, Embers Settle In My Blood

The Wind Dances Across These Lonely Leaves Like A Flock Of Nervous Birds
Heavy Limbs Carry The Hangman, Eyes Wide And Daunting In His Sorrow
The Skyline Is Beautifully On Fire, And We Marvel At Its Gruesome, Twisting Light
Reaching Out Into The Firmament, As If To Stop The Stars From Falling

As A Figure Of Shadow, I Pass Through The Wake Of Life And Death
Dressing Wounds Weathered By Years Of Affliction
The Beacon Of My Viscera Incinerates The Truth Of All Form
A Heaviest Of Hearts, And A Fading Radiance Bleeds Into The Night
