To hear the calling of the thunder To be the holder of a dream and hold it near  To be a rider on the storm clouds And bring the rains who beg it dear I bring the clouds to shield the sunlight glowing over me I wish to part the sky in two and drown their dreams I want the falling rains to wash away the dreadful stains To flood the blighted land and seas and start again To ride the changing winds of fortune To rise into a storm of fear and hear the gale To wait the long and tiring journey Where waves come crashing from the sea I bring the clouds to shield the sunlight glowing over me I wish to part the sky in two and drown their dreams I want the falling rains to wash away the dreadful stains To flood the blighted land and seas and start again To hear the calling of the thunder To be the holder of a dream and hold it near To be a rider on the storm clouds And bring the rains who beg it dear To see the crashing of the lightning To feel the cold air blowing in (its blowing in) To think the sun could never see me To know the deluge will now stay

Escape 04:07
Falling in so deep Memory so faint Dark shade, swallowing All that’s left of your soul Your figure sways Like a frail tree Blown away By the slightest breeze Escape this place You run away Don’t be afraid You’ll fly again You will set sail And turn away From all this pain To live Crawling on your knees Pale eyes, drifting Your strength wanes, you fall Your courage has gone Your tired eyes Can’t stay awake Falling in to a deep sleep Escape this place You run away Don’t be afraid You’ll fly again You will set sail And turn away From all this pain
3.
In mazes dark, a hopeful light When any light will do Escape the dim black night Walk into something new How quick you follow How quickly you forget The darkness left behind  You’re all in need of someone You all need a sign You’re all looking skywards The sun has left you blind Into the light, its so defined It bends and twists into Whatever you desire It always follows you And quickly changes To a familiar form Just like a mirror You’re all in need of someone You all need a sign You’re all looking skywards The sun has left you blind

Mould a man whilst young Into the shape you so desire Rid his weakness now A model leader will surely grow And stand behind him And lean unto him And live life for him And give life to him Reward good behaviour Usurper or saviour Worthy god or demon Trustworthy or treason Unleashing a toxic wave Of vile raw vitriol Vilify and chastise The weakness soon will show Then stand behind him Then stab into him Then take life from him Then rise above him Reward good behaviour Usurper or saviour Worthy god or demon Trustworthy or treason Reward good behaviour Trustworthy or traitor Worthy god of reason Usurper of treason

Tired of silence and confusion Awaiting answers that never came Tired of searching and seeking It just keeps me awake Keep my mind alerted For a meaning, however vague Looking desperately for guidance Do the stars point the way And I know all the times I looked inside to find a key Something buried deep in me And I know when I tried to find a meaning or a way I just wasted all my days I’ve dug so deep, to cultivate a past The memories won’t ever last Every time, a moment I rejoice Someone takes away my voice Every door deserted Every pathway is in vain Hoping quietly for semblance Are the answers all the same? And I know when I tried to find the secrets of the past It just never made much sense And I know if I tried to seal the burning of the flame It just swallowed me the same Now I know all the times I looked inside to find a key It was never there in me Now I know when I tried to find a meaning or a way I lost many, many days Now I know when I tried to find the secrets of the past There was never any chance Now I know if I tried to seal the burning of the flame It would wither all the same

You may think you’re alone There’ll be a time when you are You’ll be a stranger to love There’ll be an absence of warmth Close your eyes Look deep inside Watch that fire burn Whispers heard Still the darkness Blinds your sight In the fading light The Coldness binds Some might say you’re alone There’ll be a moment in the night You’ll gaze upon the night sky There’ll be a star in the dark You may know you’re alone There’ll be a danger in your mind You’ll have to look towards the sky There’ll be a home up high
7.
All the years slowly waste away All the memories fading in the shade Your existence is in question now Try one last time, try to fight again Cold and lonely you walk through the night You’re slowly stumbling in The fading moonlight You turn to see all your journey behind But in the darkness There’s nothing to find Bold and lonely You call to the night You’re slowly crumbling You’ll give up the fight You look to see all The journey ahead But all you see is death Come the morning you slowly wake Will the sunlight, even stir your eyes Dream of past times, wander in your mind Take the journey, face the troubled times
8.
You will hold me up on high You will throw me to the sky You will gladly watch me fall I will do what I must do It will all come down to you Will you stand and watch me go I would spread my wings so wide If all I could do was fly I would fly so far from you I would watch all those who fight Ready to take all they like Leaving no one left behind You will leave me out to dry In the desert sun so bright Leave my flesh to worms and flies I would crawl into the shade But my vision starts to fade Just a silhouette of you

Their Chosen 06:18
Once upon a time They sat high in light Now in the winter’s rain They’ve fallen down The darkness surrounds And emptiness brews But now they will come To be one with you In the bleakness of the dancing shadows They call to you And offer their hands No force can keep them From seeking out you You will forever be Their chosen vessel And when dawn breaks You will shield their eyes And when the rain comes down You will keep them dry The bitter winter breeze Will freeze their warmth I don’t how long Their lives will last On this cold day They have awakened You have been taken At night And as they collapse They know they’ve failed To save their chosen angel And as they try They feel no absence They feel no substance To life They want to join you They’re being torn But in dying You’ll be reborn

___________________

One of the true originators and most important exponents of the so called cosmic black metal scene, Dis Pater never hid his passion for darkwave, new wave, goth, and 80's synth music in general, which have always heavily influenced all his projects, from MIDNIGHT ODYSSEY to DISSVARTH and THE CREVICES BELOW. It was only a matter of time before the Australian artist would decide to distill his love for dark electronic music into a specific project, finally free to widely explore its shores. DEATH COMES CRAWLING serves that purpose. With a name borrowed from a MIDNIGHT ODYSSEY's song, the one-man band debuts in 2017 with the fascinating “Looking For Semblance”, an 8-track album released digitally through Bandcamp and now finally available on CD, strictly limited to 200 copies worldwide.
DEATH COMES CRAWLING's music features Dis Pater's signature style, where seductive atmospheres, driving rhythms, and wraparound dark melodies give life to beautiful car-songs and majestic night hymns for the lost and the lonely.

To make the physical edition of “Looking For Semblance” even more precious, Dis Pater has decided to include an unreleased bonus song to the original track list: the monumental “Their Chosen”, a perfect closing number for an album that expertly conjugates the old-school obscurity of Clan Of Xymox with the modern electronic drifts of Drab Majesty and Trust.
