Yawning Druid I can not say accurately in words how incredible this album is. Surely one of my favorite funeral doom records ever recorded, and an absolute must own for fans of the genre. Distant, funereal, and gothic leads that wrench emotion from the listener, gliding over massive walls of deep mournful rhythms. A doom metal masterpiece. Favorite track: The Stars Would Not Awake You.

Old & Grey 10:39
Laid, to rest like the roses at night They awake at the break of dawn But I will not Wait for me, to decay, light the way This dark misery clouds your dreams Wait and see Faint, like my lifeless flesh Live and breathe, only cease, old and grey Your thoughts will tempt, just refrain The blood stains Take another breath, near your chest, it stabs away Layer by layer, eroding, it grips so tight Thoughts will deepen, sinking hope, enticing despair Tears so salty, corroding, your vision impaired Taste your tears, drying your skin, parching thirst Thoughts forgetting, time is flowing, years wasted Old and grey, eyes betray, death so slow Lights will fade, but still your heart hurts. Come to me, come and stay, shine the way This dark solemn path, all your dreams Come with me.
For years I have laid Surrounded by silence Undisturbed for years In a death so peaceful So what is this noise? Has my crypt been disturbed? So what is this noise? Has its seal been opened? Even though I lie Entombed behind This large stone grave I feel a presence I feel a warmth The kind death knows not I feel a warmth The kind that betrays the living "Oh mortal being You have disturbed my sleep And I ask why? I don't encroach on the living So why must you awaken the dead? The fetid air is my resting place And i wish to be left alone In this darkness I wish to be Surrounded by the cold of stone
Marble Tears 13:16
In this barren season Only once a year Upon her fine face drop the marble tears Her cries are silent But to touch these stones Is to know her anguish A fleeting sense of fear Does she disturb The realm of the dead? Or is her presence A bitter relief For the one whose abode Lies beneath the earth Though he may rejoice She laments her fate. "This curse haunts me I will never escape it The fates binding Those tempting cursed seeds" "One season here Three seasons living in fear That fetid air Oh how I dread it down there I can't escape When I am bound to this fate Oh Hades hear Your season's end draws near" "Below the sunlight's reach Dark magic bears the fruit The cursed juice so sweet That wicked curse by you…" "Prisoned to be with you Shall I never forget? That day the earth opened And swallowed up my grace" In this barren season Never twice a year Down from her fair face Pour the marble tears Her pain is silent But to take these stones Is to share her anguish And be cursed like her.
Streams, washing away, taking your remains The sky, where you once dwelt, before you fell down The stars, would not awake, to save you today The earth, taker of life, giver of mourning Sunlight, you seem so harsh My eyes can't bare your warmth Please recede and set Let me grieve in the dark Moonlight, you seem so pure Your glow distracts my thoughts Please rise and stay tonight Help me, for I am alone Dreams, moving away, flowing within me Your face, once seemed so clear, now disappears Your trace, formless in shape, shapeless in haze Your name, I cannot say, I can't remember Your face…
The night is young and the air is dangerous I do not want you to leave this night Don't think it's some childish paranoia I sense that death's on his horse tonight I turn away but for a moment And you have left me on my own This feeling grows like a seed inside me It's vines are strangling my insides I chase but you are too far I stop to breathe this air I hear the faintest footsteps I feel his cold breath down my neck The eyes of his wicked horse Stare right into mine The last thing that I feel A cold, stale goodbye Death has touched me I hear faint cries From her voice Oh how sick she feels inside The night is old and drenched in staleness I did not want to leave you this night Your eyes are filled with deep hysteria. I sense that death won't come for a while



CD in jewel case. 12-page full color booklet with lyrics


TEMPESTUOUS FALL is the funeral death/doom project of Dis Pater, the Australian artist behind the acclaimed black metal acts MIDNIGHT ODYSSEY and THE CREVICES BELOW.
Through 5 majestic songs, the band's debut "The Stars Would Not Awake You" paints a nocturnal world of romanticism and decadence. A place of the soul, where the broken dreams and the bitterness of life turn into dark poetry and fly on the wings of elegant and moving melodies, granitic guitars, and sumptuous arrangements of keyboards and violins, while growl and clean voices tell stories of Love and Death.
"I feel genuinely positive about Tempestuous Fall," says Dis Pater. "It's a bit of a milestone for me, something I have wanted to do for so long, but just never really sat down and did it. I guess the only thing holding me back was myself."
With TEMPESTUOUS FALL Dis Pater has revisited the early 90's death/doom metal of My Dying Bride and Anathema, re-thought through the experience in Midnight Odyssey and enshrouded in modern funeral doom atmospheres.
"I realized something that maybe is obvious to other people: My music represents the part of me that remembers and holds on to memories," explains the artist, "the memories of first listening to certain bands and feeling that tremendous sensation of something that completely expresses the thoughts and problems inside me. This new album is one of the truest expressions of my inner self, even more so than Midnight Odyssey or The Crevices Below."
