Behold the birth of a black dawn As the path like serpents coils In deathlike fog - forth Through thorns and bones Behold the death of crippling doubt As the beating heart stops In the blackness unbound - forth Through thorns and bones Awaken, o great accuser! As the harvest moon dawns And the hearts of man burst ripe Through wisdom of the dead A flood of unpure chants As damnation winds howl The reaping has begun
2.
Thy roots are bitter but fruits sweeter than the brethren of Eden's light Your purest beauty truly next to none You, the daughter of endless light and the only unextinguished star In your essence drown me, o Exalted one The rightest guide on Adversial Path Star-eyed, golden-tongued You, the prophet, the highest exalted Guardian of the divinity's gates Your name - the truest of ways In the swirling scatter of burning suns I dissolve the profanity of doubt As i tear these shackles away I shall ascend in thy name
3.
On the astral crossroads where no light dwells She weaves her cosmic web As the stars align Behold her primordial otherness O divine initiator Emerge from the ravenous dark As the daylight withers and dies Ascend! As my blood rushes onto stone The void beckons and her voice sweetly calls As serpents coil at your feet I adorn your flesh with scarlet tears Through day and dawn, night and dusk Light and dark, above and below Thirst for your words never quenched Now lead me forth through your searing gates As I burn like a wailing star I give myself to the dying of the light The black torch of consciousness sparks

The Wanderer 04:17
In the absence of all space and time Hear your vessel's voiceless cry O ever-present treader of the crooked path Crowned with serpents wild With this restless heart wailing wordless psalms Through thousand steps yet with will still unbound Conjoining dusk with dawn In your name - I arrived At your temple...
6.
As formlessness sank into form the fire and clay betrothed Through willed creation - Eosphoros unborn Crowned with fathomless dark beneath the purity of endless stars With fallen one's howl the infinite starlight bedim O father of cosmic inexistance By your hand the fire of aspiration sparked O keeper of the blackest flame hear me now as these split veins sing O lightbringer of all paths Divine illuminator As your fire burns in my heart I behold the fallen star's light
7.
8.
You who are but should not be Harbinger of death and yet a breath of new life Fill my veins with the embers of your deadly gaze So I may dissolve in your eyes You who rule over the endless nightsky Allow me to shine as one of your stars O how I dream, how I dream of your light To quench the thirst unspoken with the blood of saints To know death above and below To know death within Within and without

Hailing from Poland and lead by mysterious sole member K.M., ARS MAGNA UMBRAE debuted in 2017 with a promising EP, “Through Lunar Gateways”, the first stone of an occult black metal tower pointed at the firmament. The band's newest full-length effort, “Lunar Ascension” is the top of that admirable building, an open eye on immense cosmic depths, and a privileged observation point to investigate the mysteries of the night sky, darkness and death.

Equally inspired by Nightbringer, Blut Aus Nord and Mare Cognitum, and mainly focused on dissonant riffs and bewitching melodies, ARS MAGNA UMBRAE's music is a true assault on the senses. At times it's as suffocatingly dense and aggressive as only the old black metal was; in other occasions it tries to tone down the tension with atmospheric interludes bordering on raw dark ambient. But it's a pious wish: all in all, ARS MAGNA UMBRAE remain a sinister and terrifying occult black metal monster, at ease only in the utmost darkness. They only light they seek is the light of dead stars, silent witnesses of the void that will swallow us all.

Originally self-released via Bandcamp, “Lunar Ascension” has been revised and expanded thanks to the addition of a final track, “The Feast Of Shades”, a triumphant ending to a visionary album.
