Hidden within a bog of black and deathly fog hides a mysterious and incredibly talented Danish band which is now part of the I, Voidhanger Records' roster: TONGUES.

A duo comprised of Thorbjørn (guitar, vocals, bass and organ) and Qvortrup (drums, vocals, lyrics), TONGUES have reaped a portentous 35-minute long debut EP titled “Thelésis Ignis”. This is a rumbling, ferocious, and ill-omened musical journey that alternates bursts of violence with meditative grooves, dissonant melodies and wretched atmospheres all within the auspice of a cohesive, apocalyptic and mystical dark aura.

In the band's own words, "TONGUES is devoted to the exploration of mind and soul, and how they relate to the flesh. Our music is as heavy as the earthbound flesh; the lyrics and themes constitute the soul that yearns for some kind of redemption, eternally lost in the cloud of unknowing. The nature of the synthesis between soul and body is drenched in obscurity, which is why - by speaking in tongues - a path may be eventually revealed, providing salvation for that fallen race we call Humanity. Our debut EP, 'Thelésis Ignis' is the first chapter of this doomed spiritual journey."

Track Name: Void Meditation
Through the eyes of dead infants
Lift the veil of forgotten dreams
The Void is clothed in thorns
Crowned and unblessed for eternity
She governs the abyssal dominions
Sowing the seeds of eternal Darkness

Steel strings of divine inspiration
Conceived beyond the dark aura of Saturnalia
Rotting veins pummelled through with hate
Stand tall and in disgust
Receive the blessing of Fire
Burn the grounds of their holy monuments

Mystic clouds of the Kabbalah
Channelling the Enochian word of the Demiurge
Seers and prophets of the Apocalypse
Forges faces of death in the sky
Blacksmith chains to hold the Void
Divine ignorance inherited down through the ages

The Void, she speaks unto me
She tends to the souls of the Fallen
The flapping of Devil wings, the radiance of holy halos...
I do not know; yet I shall drink heavily from her chalice
The spirit of darkness emerges from her crown
And puts out the dying embers in our eyes
Track Name: The Will Of Fire
Light shall not appear easily
Through vast prisms of blackness
Channel streams of death thoughts
The spiritual mountain I shall ascend

Eternal journey for Lapsis

Linguistic riddles of old
Mercury and sulphur; chaos and cosmos
Kenoma; earthly world of hellish phenomena
Pleroma; beyond the seven gates
Earthly love and heavenly ascent

Doubt gnaws the bones of my being
A thousand hosts of fire
By whom shall I be judged at the fall of time?
The hidden flame of the Spirit
And the heavy cloud of profane bodies

At the inmost night
The blazing stars of the eve
Are nowhere to be found
A thousand pale hands drawing down the sky
Emburdened by fear and wonder

The vast pillars of mysteries
Throne in the unknown spheres
Human thought in predictable cycles
The gaze of the soul rests in the dark
The tongue's whispers echo in the abyss
Track Name: Last Grip Of The Hand Of Guilt
Strange sigils written in the night sky
Mountains ablaze with fiery passion
People in agony, tearing at their eyes
Sheep shall graze at His rotting flesh

And at the dawn we shall awake
Watch with hearts trembling with fear and awe
The Serpent as He shall speak unto us
His hand shall be lead upon our shoulders

And with raging fury burn the world scorched
Enthrone the Void in obscurity

With burning tongues and fiery minds
Carry the cosmos unto chaos

And at the dawn we shall awake
Watch with hearts trembling with fear and awe
The Serpent as He shall speak unto us
His hand shall be lead upon our shoulders

With burning tongues and fiery minds
Carry the cosmos unto chaos
Lands shall tremble
And people shall raise their bloody swords
Against each other
His throne of blood and flesh
And Him, obese with power and indulgence

So let us tear at his wretched cross as rabid dogs
And we shall bathe in the blood of His saints
For all the pain and suffering
We had endured for countless aeons
As night fire falls upon his cursed temple
We shall be released!
Track Name: Bloodline Of The Blind
Arising from the depths of infinite black seas
Summoned by unknowable deities of old;
"Of the Word he is, and shall become!"
The deities of doom yelled, for their Word is law
And upon the Law the lower spheres are begotten
A silence was then upon the waters…

A moment of inexplicable horror it was
When he, the foul one, rose from the depths
Blackened sludge fell from his mouth,
Filled with rotting teeth and words of war
His eyes, empty of soul, peace he knew not of

He spoke unto the dark;
"I am Adam, demon, firstborn of the blind!
I am Death, I am Plague, I am Famine
I shall bring Doom upon this world
The sword I shall forge and give unto the children of mine
For to reap this world dry of blood!"

Innumerable aeons then went by,
And as the scriptures foretold, Adam raised Cain;
Madness and impurity incarnate
The deities rejoiced in their dominions
As Cain entered the hollow of impiety
His unhallowed acts are carved into our mountains
And so, his legacy is fulfilled till the end of time

In the fields, the harvest shall grow weak and feeble
Drowning in rivers of blood
And in the woods, the cries of his servants shall fill the air
Blind with rage and sin
And the sea shall flow with death
Emptiness below and above, waves ridden with disease

And so, we are condemned to walk these plains
Plains of death, plague and famine
Eternally in a cycle of doom
Until the last sigh of this cursed earth...
