And how the night shall rise when shadow descends upon thee Your pale skin as cold as stone Your eyes so lifeless Staring into a distant dream Not noticing the ones around you Pale fingers lie unmoved and still Eyes not blinking, staring with a chill And no air exhales from your mouth Tears remain of your dreams unfulfilled Night has gripped you ever close and dear And stars shall never answer any dream Now your soul will rise into the sky Into darkness now your spirit flies Darkness lurked in all you once had been Blinded you were taking on your fear Only death will nurture what you were And death will give you all the peace you need
Uneasy, plains of stone Sit still in night In the darkness, slow Comes the flames of light From a burning star Peaking from behind And the shadows grow Come near me, plains of stone Come shelter me from light When the fires grow And that burning star Will force the night to fall
Between the light and the moon A cold and weightless fall Basking in an astral show Disappear behind our world Between the light and the moon
Polaris 05:26
Twinkling star it called my name Amidst a charming song. of strange lands hidden faraway that lure my yearning soul Twinkling star it called my name and whispered all its lies it knows my secret cravings its words cut through my vice Follow me and see the place where crimson rivers flow where moons in colour of amber beads shine on endless worlds Daemon star of north burnt my weary eyes When its beams cut through grey and cloudy skies Purple sands and golden mists Dreams that soul just can¥t resist Flame that burns hole through my heart Trapped inside a black cold vault. Daemon star of north tricked my weary eyes When its beams cut through my soul and filled it with its lies Otther stars anon shall rise To the axis of the skies Stars that soothe and stars that bless With a sweet forgetfulness Only when my round is over Shall the past disturb thy door (from Polaris by H.P. Lovecraft)
The wheel, of flames Sinks below, to shadow And the dead call your name With tears And the night wraps itself around you The boat of souls rides below, with you And the dead call your name With tears And the night wraps itself around you
Awaken from the depths, my memories Wake from the past, stray into life The path is long and dark Wander alone, wander alone now Lost in the vast, twisted thoughts of death I hear his call, but nameless he stays Like from the past, leading me blind Blindly leading From a journey comes the forgotten
Waiting through a thousand winds Memories of mist and fears we leave this world again to learn to shed a tear again Waiting through a thosaund winds For every sin to disappear Cave of safety or home of necropolis labyrinths We took our vows which we forgot Wandering through mist The winds slow, motionless The tears break through the fog But only to dry the soul When a thousand winds have died We wait a thousand more Forgetting all we mourned Never to leave this world



Jewel case CD, 8-page full color booklet complete with lyrics


“Between The Light And The Moon” is the poetic title of DISSVARTH's debut full-length album, a contemplative voyage through starry landscapes of infinite beauty. DISSVARTH is a duo comprising two among the most visionary and talented artists in today's atmospheric metal field: Dis Pater, the enigmatic Australian composer behind MIDNIGHT ODYSSEY, and Svarthen of Slovakia's AEON WINDS.

The enchanting, etheric songs of “Between The Light And The Moon” are the result of their collaboration and their love for the music of Dead Can Dance, Elend, Arcana, Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream. Leaving the metal influences behind, the duo has distilled a pure concentrate of atmospheric ambient imbued with classical music, enriched with cosmic tones, fascinating neo-folk acoustic passages, a prominent darkwave feel, and crystalline vocal melodies.

DISSVARTH's music is simple, yet transcending and incredibly intense. There's no sadness in these notes, but the kind of melancholy brought up by nighttime reflections and bittersweet memories, mixed with the reassuring hopes for a better tomorrow. DISSVARTH speak to our spirit, and their cosmic tales of loss and abandon reconcile us with our lives.
