___________________

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.

Track Name: The Changing Winds Of Fortune
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
Track Name: Escape
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
Track Name: Looking Skywards
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
Track Name: Usurper Or Saviour
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
Track Name: Something Buried Deep In Me
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
Track Name: Close Your Eyes
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
Track Name: Nothing To Find
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
Track Name: I Would Spread Wings So Wide
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
Track Name: Their Chosen
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
