SHADOWGRAVE

DEMISE OF THE FORGOTTEN (2013)
Por fin tenemos aquí la edición del primer largo de los lusos y digo por fin ya que hace poco reseñaba su Ep del 2012 "The Aftermath", en donde termina la misma comentado que estábamos ante una banda que dará que hablar. Dará que hablar porque este "Demise of the Forgotten" es un trabajo en donde dan un salto de calidad importante y en donde nos revientan a base de un doom tremendamente melancólico y siniestro, sin olvidarse de fulminarlos con algunas partes más black y death, estas últimas las menos. Resulta totalmente imposible no escuchar este trabajo y que no te vengan a la mente dos bandas de renombre como son sus paisanos Moonspell y los britanicos My Dying Bride; que alargada es a veces timbre de voz de Fernando Ribeiro, y que trabajo tan honesto y tremendo han realizado Shadowgrave en el apartado vocal. Absolutamente todo lo ofrecido en los casi sesenta minutos de este "Demise of the Forgotten" está cuidado al detalle, desde la atmósfera aplastante creada con unas líneas de bajo y guitarra brutales, estás últimas aparecen de manera inesperada en ciertas partes desgarrando unos riffs buenisimos; junto con las ya comentadas voces surgidas de la oscuridad y la frialdad de la muerte, así como los teclados, otro aspecto a destacar y que cobran una presencia trascendental no ya solo en la intro o el final, sino que en mayor o menor medida están presentes a lo largo de todos los temas imprimiendo melancolía, tristeza y desesperación a los temas. Cómo una noche fría y gélida de invierno la música de Sahdowgrave se envuelve en tu alma, la arrastra hacia la tristeza y la muerte, han venido para quedarse, y es una buena noticia. (8,7).
1. Elegy of the Moribund 02:01  
2. The Last Empire 08:20
Written in the ancient scripts Prophetic day of demise Released complete destruction Nothing ever spared aside Withering light of Monarchy’s decay Atrocities committed Payed in death Saw burning hell Havoc is left Torn away (away) The last empire Torn away (away) Defeat proclaimed Behold! The time has come! Nothing shall be undone! There is no mercy For all this scum Thunders roar Heavy rain falls The anger darkens Forever more Hunted dark curse No way to reverse Withering light of Monarchy’s decay Atrocities committed Payed in death The sacred blade Gods forged in the skies All forces clash Evoking five elements Years of hunger Shall be on wait Raindrops cry red The emperor is dead  
3. Shrine of Sins 04:15
 Church of misery
In dying apology
Locked in prison
Shut from reality
There is no faith
To follow tomorrow
Shrine of sins

Blasting through the gates
Filled with
Horrific hate
Leaving
The poor to rot
Not holding back

Sick of it all
Long forgotten
Astray
Among the rest
Just to stay cold
Just to stay dead
Kill them all

The king
In his castle
Warriors fight
Instead
Empty lies 
Based on belief
Shrine of sins

Sorrow in death turned to grief
Deceiving eyes in wicked schemes
Ready for the great betrayal
Freedom to men has been denied

Religion tames mindless mortals
Under the gaze of symbols 
Let us hear a nefarious mass
Worshiping the goat on fire

Temples destroyed
Burned to none
Dark priests of evil
With their
Obscure ways
Shrine of sins

Turning men
Into sheep
For the sake
Of corruption
Infernal desires begun
Revolution begins

Few walk the unholy path
Atheist
Philosophy neglected
Truth
Has been objected
Ignorance is bliss

Beggars 
Have to burn
Forbidden
To breath
All we gave
Has been lost
Shrine of Sins
4. Carving Genocide 04:03
Silver kingdom At downfall Empty ways To nowhere Human crimes unforgiven Deserve no absolvation All exiles have begone Overdose of weaponry Foresees abominant Killing spree The beast is present Famine for carnificine Within our wars We rest in pieces Violence is the only answer The ultimate sacrifice We all are victims Of this insane War against all humanity War against all life Final bastion Of our kind Fallen cemetery crows Growl chants of necrosis Carving genocide! The final revolution Carving genocide! The only resolution Carving genocide! From here stand no survivors Carving genocide! A sick world near extinction Soulless bodies Left to rot Limbs spread everywhere Impaled heads left for dead The wind is Blowing strong As leaves fly over tied legs Crushed to the bone The crows laying With their wings spread As angels nightmares Descent straight from hell The murder weapon Of genocide Tyranny carved in their flesh Apocalypse set in stone  
5. Demise of the Forgotten 07:29
A time for displeasure Taking shallow steps Grasp the emotion Take me now I’ve been through so many Discovered horizons Crafting the lifeline I acknowledge my fate A river of solitude A wave of sadness In these lost moments Standing by my side When sadness whispers Grief stops my demise The last picture portrait Is a mere illusion As I feel the cold touch Of vanishing despair I know my time has came I acknowledge my fate As death touches the skin My pale emotions Bring one last gulf Of this dawning misery A fortress of pain, my life Buried underneath the cross My soul expelled from the body Oh death thank you for freeing me Blood stops running Through my veins A dying body A soul left behind Life’s last grasp My fainting light Excruciating agony Moments of departure I seek my way Into fallen oblivion There is no beauty Besides this pain The sky turns grey And forgiveness lost A dying body A soul let alone  
6. When Death Comes Grieving 10:46
  When death comes grieving
The fall of the damned arises
Comes the epilogue of departure
When all hope has been lost

Bringer of the underworld
Have mercy for the lying bodies
Hear the prayers of their old fathers
Save the spirits that have been lost

Why waste the gift of life
I haven’t meant to take you

Take my hand 
I will take you to
Your final resting place
Take my hand
I am the one 
You cannot run from

I fear there’s nothing 
I can do
The damage done
Does not return

Rising from the crates
Wielding a damned scythe
Condemning every man
To eternal emptiness

Fighting a half lost battle
Riding a half dead horse
Waging tremendous disasters
Souls return to their dark masters
7. Lugubrious Silence 04:21   
Lost in a limbo between two worlds
I grieve the ones I´ve lost forever
This aching heart of mine
Lost its pace hours ago

Alone in the dark
Oblivious in my deviations
Missing the trail of life
Strayed in perdition

Granted the eternal banishment
Vanishing remembrances dissipate
Swiftly gone with the wind
Whispering through the cold air

For my lugubrious silence
Cannot hide my pain
Under mournful stance
I bear this doleful state

My sight sees only grey
Existence runs without color
Meaningless way of being
Haze took the leverage

Nature is rotten
Inside a mad world
Isolated throne
Without resolve

The end of the funeral
The chalice has been drank
The terminus of this new world
Outlined in our obscure marks

One single day
Would change it all
Lacking strength to overcome
Such striking adversity

So many hurdles
We’ve came across
All of us turn wicked
To dust we turn again

My sight sees only grey
Existence runs without color
Meaningless way of being
Haze took the leverage
8. Windless Winter 05:31
Footsteps printed in the snow
Echoes of the fading sun
Frozen gates stood barely shut
Iced desert revealed

Into the world of the unknown
Imagination starts to crumble
Silent enclosure of a shadow
Bent forgotten lives

Glorious return of darkness
Sinners perished again
The gods complete their task
Fulfilling their prophecy at last

The trumpets sound
As the final call echoes
Where will you be
When this darkness calls?

Feelings of emptiness
Invade the senseless
A miserable blood stain
Thy real pain

Hollow like a windless winter
Sustained screams from the stones
Echoes inside a dark sphere
Calling their master 

Struggle for survival
Innocent lives violently taken
Not relevant for the matter
This cynical disaster

From the rising shadows 
Of an ancient ritual
Stone turns to blood
And blood turns to nightfall

When once ruled an emperor
Now stands the omen
Decayed throne of monarchy
Now pentagram's ruling
9. The Omen 07:42
Children of the night
Follower of the pentagram
Apprentice of the goat
Leader of the crows

Seed of evil
Sprouts in our own hands
Vicious psychopath
Plants in us his disease

Sequence of sixes
Son of the devil
Ultimate revelation
Terminator of creation

Altered beast arises
Enraged serpent strikes
In blasphemous moment
Upon the cross an omen

Only hatred spared
As the bones become ashes
Once again turned to dust
Through the tides of time
Leading our own fall
Demise of the forgotten

Propagate the terror
Dawn breaking once more
Result of the ultimate sacrifice
New millennium at war

Evoked by perdition
Kneeling for redemption
Last merging of fates
The end of the world
10. Ode to the Fallen 03:47  
  58:15
