about

CroworD Judenburg, Austria

Lukas in order to revise his style in melodic and rythmic regard, proclaimed together with "Heavy Hitter" Gabriel a gathering of "Aichfeld" Metal-Pioneers. Michael and Martin as well as Florian joined for a perfect setting for this quest, from their perspective.
A home-finding for all of them in different and multiple ways.

Track Name: Message of the Dead
You`re, the single, a servent in wretchedness,
shades blinded, by the emperiors sun,
tarnished into the farthest far
go! and deliver, deliver the message of the dead

there it lies - the midest of the world,
piled high in its sediment
nothing reaches through this
least the message of a dead

barren, he crawls through the innerst palace
chest crowned by the emperiors sun,
breaking into the endless strains
if he would ever reach the gates - nothing will be gained

there it lies - the midest of the world,
piled high in its sediment
nothing reaches through this
least the message of a dead

there it lies - the midest of the world,
piled high in its sediment
You sit at your window
and dream when nights burst in
Track Name: Beyond Obsidian Gates
The path is hidden. Beyond reach it lies
A blood red sunset stricken with oblivion
For aeons in silence buried in the shadow
The arcane found its grave

Deeply carved in the flesh of the earth
A passage of time shrouded in myth
An unspeakable horror ensnared behind
Beyond the obsidian gates

Lost in time
Seals unbroken
A secret obscure
Waiting to be unveiled

At the end of a relentless quest
Staring through the gaping darkness
Abomination lurking beyond
The roaring silence is broken


Deeply carved in the flesh of the earth
A passage of time shrouded in myth
An unspeakable horror ensnared behind
Beyond the obsidian gates

Lost in time
Seals unbroken
A secret obscure
Waiting to be unveiled

Lost in time
Seals unbroken
A secret obscure
Waiting to be unveiled
Track Name: Manifest of Mortal Sickness
My trace lost in dead mountain's land
There you lie in chains, laid to rest
Two worlds, but no home
loneliness of darkness lies in your cry

Here I am
You're searchin' for
Twisted Grin in triumph
as death crowned your neck

Flying free
Into the fortress of nothingness
Blindness guides your emergence
A manifest of mortal sickness

"Leave me!" but nothing waits there
I'm the one, you are striving for
gone to kingdom come, you're leaving both
Damage done as vast yaws embrace me

Here I am
You're searchin' for
Twisted Grin in triumph
as death crowned your neck

Flying free
Into the fortress of nothingness
Blindness guides your emergence
A manifest of mortal sickness

There I stand
kings of woe cry for flesh
take me back
tear a hole in my chest

lay me in your arms
so that the void, the void embraces me
here I lay and sleep,
there I turned to lie

veil me in your shades
so the void, the void can maul me
a world deseased in innocence
for a world, sorrowdrawned

Flying free
Into the fortress of nothingness
Blindness guides your emergence
A manifest of mortal sickness
Track Name: The Longest Fall
the years has carved your skin
ingrained your strides, burst your heart
so near but still too far, to reach,
wooden arms would never feel beauty

they just turned to gray
in this longest fall
leaves you lost
cloak the path, that divided one heart

their shells will be our plunder
fall to break the season
these are the last steps of our eldered kingdom
winters cold chains the vital crown of grace

their marks has turned to dust
born new and turn the soil to stone
as centuries forgot our grief
oath on our lips are the ivy around our neck

which carries the plague
and spits it own beauty
a loss of words
a dance in motionless

their shells will be our plunder
fall to break the season
these are the last steps of our eldered kingdom
winters cold chains the vital crown of grace

see there, the pride is falling
above from the roarings of the stars
two shells but one heart
not envy could cover their love

there we stand for aeons
rusted by the autumns sun
Fall to understand
the death waits in our groves

their shells will be our plunder
fall to break the season
these are the last steps of our eldered kingdom
winters cold chains the vital crown of grace
