Some guy Most funeral doom seems to bore me (not good) or put me to sleep (can be good or bad, depending). This seems somewhere between funeral and death-doom. Not totally plodding, nor repetitive. Dynamic, guitar-driven tunes with growls, clean vocals, and some spoken word. The dual guitar interplay brings to mind some of the top-tier European death-doom bands. Good stuff.

Grimroaeos I only really got this for The Precious Matter. The other songs really aren't my thing. I am a tad disappointed however as I discovered this song/band through youtube and they had a killer pre demo. It was more low, sad and had more agony than what's in the official release. The demos been taken down so I can't find them again. Favorite track: The Precious Matter.

Track Name: Principles Of Suffering
the polarity of culminations
seems mirthless
once you vegetate
in moderateness

longing for redemption
man is ever striving
seeking calm and ease
yet immune to fulfillment

only the utter climax
exceeds all expectations
these are the principles
of falling

only the utter climax
exceeds all expectations
these are the principles
of suffering

so it strikes with great disruption
the disquietude of mind
forming its congruity to will
Track Name: A Morbid Portrayal
internal soft winds
carry a black flame
the innermost strife
a struggle of will - to life

with heavy limbs and empty hearts
trodding onwards, embracing dark
the inner motions remain
divine and distant, in silence
for the inner self is unresting
unwanted, yet ever craving
with solemnity it remains lonely

gone is all ambition
lifeless is the shell
divine gifts have perished
truth has overwhelmed us

the essence is drained
innermost sanctums are lost
barren rocks to reign
over empty realms

gone is all ambition
lifeless is the shell
divine gifts have perished
truth has overwhelmed us
Track Name: The Precious Matter
i cast forth
the bonds of devotion
and set free the horror
that is inner emptiness

i shook with earthly disease
and i bowed down
for all that's precious must die
and restless rivers run dry

how could my eyes be
so restlessly deceived
by the one thing thats pure
i renounce my being

why am i left to lose
the one matter that is all
of my poorest possessions
which lie in ruins

where great trees once reigned
stumps of wood stand flamed
for all thats precious must die
and restless rivers run dry

how could my eyes be
so restlessly deceived
by the one thing thats pure
i renounce my being

hold, stall the journey
for all it brings is an empty void
i won't be gone, i will belong
to the dream i once dreamt of
which is you and me
forever rejoiced in eternity

in ignorant safety you dwell
while i lie cold
with strangling fear
yet i have peace in mind
for only death will take
whats left of you - in me

drown,
swallow my thick blood!
i will succeed,
and make you my everything
