Dawntreader 10:41
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

Maelstrom 07:09
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

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

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

Duskwalker 15:16
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

about

Iter is the debut album from UK doomers Gévaudan. The 5 track offering tells of stories of the interactions between gods and mortals interlaced with wider themes of the passage into, through and out of existence. It delivers a dynamic musical journey with heavy sprawling riffs and epic solos.

"a dark, dystopian yet hauntingly beautiful album that plummets into stark crevices, scales sheer drops of despair and wallows in drowning pools of bleak introspection..masterful and moving." - Doom Charts, Reek of Stoom

“music this good, this emotionally involving and powerful should be experienced first hand... dynamics that range from a whisper to a roar, grooves that can seduce with a gentle caress then leave you reeling with the ferocity of their attack.” - Desert Psychlist
