Carrying this weight. Wearing the cloak of the helpless.
Collecting reasons to kill or be killed.

Forking paths. Growing madness
I´ll make the worms wait. Take them down, rendering them to naught.

Royal ceremony. Sovereign beings kneel.

Carrying my heart to the altar of spirits. Human flesh through sacred flames. Beseeching the hand of the gods to revive her.

Therefore i shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I just want your soul back. Lead me to you.

Three musicians got together and extracted what seems to be common in their work: sludge with atmosphere with an hardcore vibe.
