about

Gévaudan England, UK

Gévaudan are a doom metal band who combine crushing, grooving riffs with
tales of legend and woe. With influences firmly in the traditional end of the
doom metal genre, they deliver
a balanced blend of story-telling, heavy riffs and Iommi-esque solos. The band continue to carve their own unique niche within
the genre, drawing on influences that include black metal and 70’s psychedelia.

Track Name: Dawntreader
Screaming, as sun hits
Bleeding, as light grips
Tortured, at first breath
Retching, at first taste

Dawn comes, he guides me
Life calls, it drives me
Flowers bloom, beside me
Sun glows, he stands with me

I am in light
I am at dawn

Weep as sun, born anew
New light, to pierce through you
Come take his hand and dance
Surge with light, as burning heart
The rise of dawn, brings new life
Why are we here, beneath the trees
The word of ghosts, the whispered truths
There is no home, there is no hope

Fleshless, complete me
Boneless, I take thee
Heartless, fulfil mine
Lightless, I burn with ire
Nightmare, of lifeless debt
Death calls, it haunts me
Flowers wilt, beneath my feet
Sun fades, he walks away

I am in light
I am in at dawn

Weep till Moon, comes death
The autumn leaves collapse
Come fall the chains, unshackle thee
Steel with bones, as freezing soul
The fall of night, brings new strife
Why are we here, beneath the mist
Whisper words of sweet relief
Weep till moon, come dusk

Shrouded with light
No memory of my waltz
Into pain of life
My journey to dusk has begun
Track Name: Maelstrom
Black sails
Rising from waters deep
Dark eyes
Fixate, beneath the surface
Corsair of bones
The deep god's great disciples
Great tendrils
That stretch beyond the water

Cometh the drowned
Servants of ancients
Of scaled beasts below
The lords of the ocean

Leviathan
Great wretched brute of ages
Finfolk, they come
Black scales, and blooded tridents
Iku-Turso
The eternal home of evil
Jormungandr
The world serpent swallows us whole

Cometh the drowned
Servants of ancients
Of scaled beasts below
The lords of the ocean

Great demons of the sea
We worship fervently
Embrace the call, sail to the depths
Into the tendrils of agony

Black waters fill your lungs
As the dark one guides your death
Watchful guardians of the sea
Into the eye of the ocean
Track Name: The Great Heathen Army
As the shadows fall above me
And the clouds black out the sun
The Great Heathen Army stands before me
Clashing their shields and bearing their blades

Whispers of madness, the demons come for us
The light of God, truly has decayed
The sons of Ragnar, here for bloody vengeance
The hateful children come to play

The King is dead
Taken by the pagan
Sacrificed to heathen gods
The blood eagle, screaming

Down into a pit of snakes
A devils king, torn asunder

As the dead litter the ground
And my brothers lie bloody before me
The demons come, wicked, and sinful
The Great Heathen Army pours forth

Cometh the Boneless, stained, his crimson flesh
As the city walls crumble before me
The Devils legions have taken all we have
Our cries for God, empty echoes, heard by none

The King is dead
Taken by the pagan
Sacrificed to heathen gods
The blood eagle, screaming

Down into a pit of snakes
A devils king, torn asunder

As we march into the hinterlands of Wessex
Thunder claps in the sky as it darkens above us
Our gods are with us, Thor cries a battlecry in the heavens
Odin strikes his mighty fist, summoning us to war
We march to victory, to death
We march for vengeance, for our fallen king
We march for blood, to war my brothers
For glory awaits us in the great halls of Valhalla
Track Name: Saints of Blood
And though the saints of blood are gone
Remember my sorrow, within my breath
And though the candle dulls to death
Black witches, wear sorrow, beneath their dress

Raise up the noose to drown tomorrow
Crowds gather, at sunrise, to witness death
The trial is just, the law is clear
Black magic, delivers, the Devil's lair awaits

The darkness moves among us
The witches live within us
The children harbour chaos
We must be vigilant in the eyes of God

And now the witches blood is mine
Lost demons within me will rise unto
And though I seek a final curse
This journey of chaos, fulfils my hate

All you may look upon with fear
Remember this promise, my final word
Though I may burn today, the godless
We linger, through fire, the Devil's chosen ones

Great shadows mount the world and darkness sweeps the land
Great evil works into our minds and guides our hand
An evil force has come and lingers in our land
The witches cult is here to kill

The Devil sends his worst to infiltrate our lands
Demons hide within our kin and darkly guide their hands
An evil force has come and lingers in our land
The witches cult is here to kill

The angels weep, what have we done
The bloodless, the loveless, the ones of dark
Our God he speaks but stands ignored
They were us, within us, the ones we lost

The witches hanged, our brethren dead
The bloodless, the loveless, the ones of dark
Were we too swift, our judgment cruel?
We linger, through fire, the godless chosen ones
Track Name: Duskwalker
Into the dark, into the cold
Into the legend, tales of old
He stalks the wolves, he stalks the night
Out of our sight, the Duskwalker comes

Into the snow, into the blood
Keeping the dead, locked in their homes
Out on the moors, barrow wights stalk
Back into dark, to Duskwalkers call

Don't go alone, don't go outside
Don't be afraid, you cannot hide
He takes your hand, he leads you home
Into the dead, the Duskwalker guides

Hear the vale
Hear the ghost
Hear the call
Hear the dead

Don't stray too far, don't leave the light
He watches on, at the edge of night
Lingering death, embalming the flesh
Guardian of Souls, Warden of Bones

Hear the vale
Hear the ghost
Hear the call
Hear the dead

Undeath
Lucid
Faultless
Darkness
Duskwalker
Inside us
Watches
Delights us
