THE HELLBOUND The stillness of your ending dreams and moments slowly bleed Many moons and suns before for neither hand was seen The air is getting silent still Now their fears align Foggy eyes keep life away serpents came to dine A gallery of faces falter Hopes, the shadows maim God lies self-slain on a bizarre altar Death falls dead in pain A dance like frenzy to feed the lust There gathers each of us A marriage with death to find the path Flesh for lonesome one White eyed birds they glide in grey Snakes eclipse the sane Rainment of souls now escape Like dusk after the rain Gleaming seas of sorrow Where dreams come to die Lured by the infant's blood Lunacy of highest kind It's the soulless winter of the baneful Gateway to new realms of woe Carved in maddened minds Ornaments made meat and bone Desecrate the signs Only through murder you'll find Greatest release of all Carnal desires feeding you Once heavens befall The morrow will murder today In an eternal chase In a prison you called life Darkened hearts will fade It's the soulless winter of the hellward A creation for deeper perversions A craft to catch the sight of ethereal scenes The greed to kill, the highest devotion What we darkly crave but forcefully deny Blackness calls Beckoning hands that tied behind Hellsworn oaths Now to face your own demise Slash the veins of existence Kill the yearning thirst with each move Follow the blood stains of the falling night Taste the dying horizon's end Dripping crimson lines Drawing paths to eternity Scorch those divine Stuffed tongues down the throat of life Waning webs of sorrow Where dreams come to die Spoken by the ancient blood Insanity for heartless one It's the endless prayer of the hellbound

Severance 07:51
SEVERANCE A sharp ache what severs you From the web of dreams Into a dark night Of fever painted fiends Hovering leaves and chasing winds A paling guest within A stranger by your window Waiting to be let in Haunting whispers Soon will set you free Die alone in an unknown grave A moonlike shine on a moonless place Forever faithful servants serve A blinded god of darkened days Let be cut the ties of life Left behind as death unwinds Feed on soil eternally Severance from this diurnal wight Celebrate... this birth of death Welcoming... your fall Thinning of your blood Life's noose around your neck The shades are sweeter now And the hours are blind Now that you know You'll never wake again alive Was this what was meant for you Would it have mattered at all A deathbed of regrets could be Worse than dying soon Haunting whispers Soon will set you free Die alone in an unknown grave A moonlike shine on a moonless place Forever faithful servants serve A blinded god of darkened days Let be cut the ties of life Left behind as death unwinds Feed on soil eternally Severance from this diurnal wight Celebrate... this birth of death Welcoming... your fall Thinning of your blood Life's noose around your neck Don’t you wonder no more An easy exit through this door Just let it slip, loosen your grip Greatest gift forevermore At least there is a silent thrill In the piercing frozen steel Into the skin you wore As a mask for all these years Dancing blade Shall set you free Die alone in an unknown grave A moonlike shine on a moonless place Forever faithful servants serve A blinded god of darkened days Let be cut the ties of life Left behind as death unwinds Feed on soil eternally Severance from this diurnal wight Soon it's over... as if you were Never there... never at all Never at all Never at all Never at all

UNMARKED BURIAL It would be a crime not to go mad Not to scratch your eyes and paint the world red Of the deeds and of your unspoken soul The shadows that pass through and shroud our lives Sisters of our pains Dance with loss again Trapped in black bred earth On the day of our birth A hole burnt in the ground Tames the setting sun Where gods and demons wed Embrace your weeping end A garden of mythic and timeless hosts Where madness unfolds and others are lost Sisters of our pains Dance with loss again Dressed in lightless earth On the day of our birth A hole burnt in the ground Tames the setting sun Where gods and demons wed Embrace your weeping end Darkened Stones rising high Monuments watch patiently Graven eyes calling nigh And Noone will miss thee Sun's grown cold Night's born untold Deepened soil surrounding you Obscuring what you used to be Befriend the ender that stands above And Noone will miss thee In fires lord cried Sightless dawns belied Right beyond your sanity Lies Ancient burial grounds Ever black Trees without a sound Waiting for the murder pacts Signed by unknown sins Feasting lovers Old departure hymns Blood drops sing The unmarked Graves fall You should be theirs Blood sings The unmarked graves Souls fall You belong to them
5.
HEMORRHAGE OF THE SOUL Veiling of the minds What they tell are lies You shall slowly choke Oppression is what binds Wisdom suicides Only yourself to trust A journey going back Regressing civic sense Decayed masters lead Where only the weak Minds can survive Like parasites they will feed They create the walls Education rots Endlessly indoctrinate Blind obedience Bound to destroy Nightmares regenerate Fight or flight To nowherelands Centuries old make shift lies Structures of robust Grasping all those hands Seeping into the spine What I am is none Sworn by silence they're gone No dream nor prayer can cope Dawn is fleeing, in shadeless hope A god of false Prophecies Maps to worlds of deceit Skeletal Sacrament Justice slowly retreats No curiousity No second thoughts Not a chance to desist The trip beyond Nowhere it leads Visions of hope dismissed Ripping arteries Of reason and rights Strangled by despair Hearts're beating now For a future that's grim Trapped words cannot bear Hanging and tearing Anything with meaning Seeds of hatred and death Society collapses Resembles not a thing That's close to being human Out of the way is the sun Bleeding eyes stare into unknown Their dreams and prayers now fall Hemorrhage of the soul devours all hopes A god of false Prophecies Map to worlds of deceit Obliterate To go extinct By conserving, your defeat

THE SORROW ROOM When seas and skies become the same When the hangman calls your name Awaits in depths of your mind in dread That darkly voice he's in your head Creeping Seething Like chilling winter's veil Crawling Dragging Your ever-present pain In mournful dens of stormy rage Drowning hearts desire back their cage The burdens of loss never leave Suffocating walls Caving in they crush your faith Doubts A forest lies within the room In it hopes expire A forest of thick agony And grief All it takes A single slice Like thin cut lips Bleed Leaking out A tree of growth Tired veins scream The end Memories rain down Like old friends from yore You're still alone though A trapped hollow soul Shadows outside All around us Yet they're darker On the inside Life is just a small Anomaly Within fabrics of death Ravaged deity Shadows outside All around us Yet they're darker On the inside To what purpose do they serve The blackness in thy self Those who are gone don't wait for you All damned Seeking meaning everywhere In cold meaningless world Cut the knot and join the dead Far away Shadows outside Calmly swallow Unearthly slumber Those of sorrow When temples burn under his reign Voices ceased swift as they came

BLOODGROWN DARKNESS Light fades away Black shrouds dismay Faith spreads decay False are our days Light fades away The god that scars Born out of bloodgrown dark You call the unknown name Pearl drops of moon's domain You've met him once before and will soon after again Curtains fade Children wept as beasts conveyed Tempests wailed Dressed in black earth, light's afraid Therein hypnotized By the watchful aeon eye Amidst the storms Like feverish slaves to die Begging, pleading, yearning to be free But the freedom I'll pledge is a different one to be Curtains fade Children wept as beasts conveyed Tempests wailed Dressed in black earth, light's afraid Here I stand alone On a soulless road betrayed Seize me, beckoning grave With all my sins portrayed Begging, pleading, yearning to be free But the freedom I'll pledge is a different one to be A shrine of shadows As somber as your thoughts Crying is forgotten Once lost in eyes distraught Show me any gaze that dont believe in the dark I'd like to see them try and cover up their scars Shadows leaving the softest trace beneath The distance between me and last thing that you see When truly The night becomes your friend One has nothing then To fear but one himself Show me any gaze that dont believe in the dark I'd like to see them try and cover up their scars Once begotten while dreamers mystified Forever dwelling the night Light fades away Black shrouds dismay Faith spreads decay False are our days Light fades away

Visitation 06:06
VISITATION Lie still now as black sky departs And the far winds howl Lie as fangs tear your life apart Even lifeless sleep can't own In a thick mist of eyes growing dim I've since taken my part Passing thoughts of a forgotten sin No name nor words make it afar What can't be told to the night A ghostly past that chills our spines Slowly erases what spring was like A nightmare once set your soul alight alight... Beauty slept while death was young As fast it came now he was gone Right in front those dreary eyes The unwelcome one right beside As hearts weakened and death was its lure In fields of scald they bleed Truth and its bane could no longer endure Deathless tears to cede Lost our songs that once was sung Deafened ears hear none What can't be taught to the night A blackened heart shall now finally arise arise... Beauty slept while death was young As fast it came now he was gone Right in front those dreary eyes The unwelcome one right beside Hail the art the mortal spoke Wailing skies icy cold Beyond his years sleeps the mind What's below the morning gloom Conjuring an unknown hour Crowning through a portent power Sacrificial witchery Alone again you will be Divide the light with darksome hands Vastly deep this black crescent Conjuring the unknown hour Crowning through a portent power What can't be taught to the night A blackened heart shall now finally arise Beauty slept while death was young And the far winds howled As she dreamt a skyless dawn He waited out her life defied a life defied a life defied

WITHDRAWAL OF THE SENSES Another die is cast Another story falsely passed A temple built to reign Corrupted lies forever stain Steal the lives of feeble men Bodies sold to be Poisoning the wisdom's well Blood's sought to be drained Darkness..I see The fallen ones of fear Today.. Washed away to seas Of loss.. Guardians to flee In Despair.. The end is closer now Another sky is lost Acolytes of horror watched Government terror force Apathy of judgement lacks remorse Feeding senseless ignorance Brave ones disappear Symbols of scorn engulfed in trance A most haunting year Drowned gods Swallow waves of grief Overrun Aversion in disbelief Wander paths Of eternal night Loneliness Embraces outright Autumns of Sudden cold Eons pass Tearing souls Carry weights Heavier than our thoughts Windows of past Shattered and distraught Weaving webs To frantic molds Venom leaks Silence beholds Visions of Another truth Repulsed by hope Psyche gone wrong Birds of disaster sing Suffering cycle viciously For death to be fair Fading pillars of nostalgy Demons of life surround our core Secrets nobody knows As they watch silent and still With eyes unlike ours Darkness..I see The fallen ones of fear Today.. Washed away to seas Of loss.. Guardians to flee In Despair.. The end is closer now

MIDNIGHT THEORY Sorrow...wears a timeless gown Matter...in darkly abandoned forms Of all the lives you've led You've left no trace Of all the cards you dealt This, without a face Follow...what're you waiting for? Fear...is the shroud you wore Killer...reaping seeds so low Of all the depths you've dreamt You see the gate From all the signs it crept As days abate Here you see A sky that grays Ravens Sleep away A gracious breeze Kindly strokes the green Lifting below The final trip begins From a casket made of leaves To the land of night Where only vesper grieves Wrapped in hazy whites Life turned faint Cries seeping in now Taking them A weary tide Drags you slowly in You stood aside From whatever crowds may be Guess along the way you've found This garden of stones Watched with eyes left unbound Funeral's laid to morn Hollow...hell and heavens mate Pain...as flesh dissipates You watch the dark farewell To a stranger gone You watch alone not well Strongly drawn Stood silent and foregone Solemn whispers touch your ears Watched your own funeral Carried away from here Carried away

Ataxia 05:24
ATAXIA Time has come to leave this withering society Masses masked behind religion's insanity Can't believe how they can feed the poison into corrupt streams Wake and burn their shrine let your darkside crawling in Obscured cryptic sights, unwrapped by disbeliever's oath Tear the faltered knights, deviating evil growth I hear their pleading cries Every night when I die Twist the scythe further in Follow the one that bathes in sin There's no room for your kind Dawning of a new found time Eyes of twilight watch as perished souls fall helplessly With him walks the night, and the forecoming night was him God is stillborn on their graves as warchants echo through their fates All of us be one, reborn every funeral day Red as roses be the blood that kills and fuels new seeds Blackness in our hearts are black as our masters deeds I hear their pleading cries Every night when I die Twist the scythe further in Follow the one that bathes in sin There's no room for your kind Dawning of a new found time Hail him now Join us now He who wears a crown Once a king now nailed down In their horizon find our blood Sheeps fall, wolves dawn Crown of serpents rise Higher than the fallen skies Bleeding urge, he yearns to die Once born now a lie

about

Skull-crushing thrash metal with dark, gloomy, heavy, atmospheric and melodic undertones for fans of Metallica, Slayer, Sepultura, Exodus, Testament, Xentrix, Megadeth, Heathen...

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Initially started as a one-man band, Nightborn and all its music was created by Arda K. The main musical inspiration came from the old school thrash scene and a variety of other genres. ​The album was composed, arranged, recorded and mixed by Nightborn throughout 2016 and 2017. The recording process was so much fun but also painful at times. The outcome really pleased us, and hopefully it will be intriguing to you too as much as it was to us.

The final touches, additional mixing, engineering and mastering was done by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden. The cover artwork was done by Eliran Kantor and additional artwork was done by Maximillian Mende.

The inspiration for this album came from our journeys into the dark depths of the human psyche and the acceptance of evil within everyone. Each song tries to capture in its own unique way different types of darkness that we all have inside.
