Atmospheric Black Metal Cat Love this band .. they can both throw down and mix it up and then throw it down again. The riffs on this release are killer. One of my favorite listens / releases of 2017 so far. Favorite track: Frozen Heart.

Track Name: La Danse Macabre
One by one, Led hand in hand.
Prince and Indigent, Pope and Pagan.
Oh how we dance, how we circle 'round.
In dizzying rings, to unheard sound.

No wealth, No faith. Can prevent the inevitable.
No wealth No faith. Can prevent our inescapable fate.

What once seperated us in life now is destroyed, lost unto time.
Seemingly unreachable equality achieved,
as our bodies rot and waste away.

So dance, my friends, my enemies the same.
For in the end it matters not what one does.
For if theres one thing in this life i know to hold true.
Someday the sun will set on you too
Track Name: Frozen Heart
Encased in permafrost, frozen and numb,
no longer do i wish to dwell in darkness
flowing river, flowing free.

Sun shine, snow melt, frozen heart thaw.

Embracing self, strength flowing through and within.
Empyreal rays reaching into the deepest valleys until no glaciation remains.

Flowing river, Flowing free.
I wish to flow as the river, letting go.

Searching for understanding where none once was found.
Destroying shackles, where once i was bound
Track Name: Insolent Oppressor
Contemptible cowards.
Supremacist swine.
Hidden behind your long arm

Insolent oppressor.
Unnescisary abettor
Enforcing the agenda of a privileged elite

Saving us from ourselves you claim.
But who will protect me from you
when I'm the one seized, fettered and prone?

When your empire collapses,
razed in a burning emerald pyre,
and your heads are on blocks for crimes against the people.
there you shall find me.
Standing unsubmissive, ax in hand.

Off with thier heads
Track Name: Psychic Self-Mutilation
Indoctrinated from birth to rule over the Earth
to show not weakness, nor cower.
Taught never to question, to void others of worth,
to strive for ultimate power.

Desire for numbness, to never connect.
The price that we pay to be devoid of heart is total psychic self mutilation.

And for what?
Why do I destroy myself?
What do i truly stand to gain?

Nothing...

I do it, for I'm a fool.
Because that's what i was programmed to do
Because its the only way I understand
Track Name: Fading Light
Tell me, where are the stars?
The sky of the night so cold and dark, yet all too light
with naer a sparkle to spare.

And tell me, where are the snows?
No longer can they be found in sky or on ground
but regeneration is restricted where frost no longer grows.

These things have faded, left broken and decayed.
As the wheel continues to turn what else will fade?

And tell me, where are the rivers?
That once flowed so free, since time eternal, long before
what has become of these life givers?

And tell me, where are the trees?
Once towering so tall providing food and shelter for all.
Cut down in their prime leaving not trunk, bow or leaves

Holding on to a fading light.
