The depths, the journey and the memory Remnants of the hate your human lives amount to The very gasp the moment You begin
2.
An instinct at the same time Primordial and woefully acute Seeks to override the pointless feelings We have nominated To the control of human survival Assurity in self-deceit You found crude vigour loose within And a longing that of a beast Turn not to gods or other men To counteract this unholy state of mind It only reflects that you are sane And very much alive Living pulsations under the surface With strength to burst skulls wide open The thrill of the chase, the chase of the thrill You forgot some aeons ago Can you feel it kicking in? Some other beings blood Mixing with our saliva Come struggle and agony And you can see for yourself Grasp what you could truly triumph over Urging tensions throbbing against your cranium Thoughts come and go ablaze The thrill of the chase, the chase of the thrill You forgot some aeons ago When all the things we consider good and true Were still asleep tight in the thought matter And when the gods still watched and cheered We did hunt and kill When the ordeals we considered seen through Were brought upon us to wield steel against with And when the gods still watched and cheered We did hunt and kill

Did I ask you to tell me How hard it is to lead a life So special and so unique You’re in danger of leaving the stratosphere How painful it is to possess All these ideals oozing originality From all orifices gloriously Manifesting here as fecal matter It seems we need a new kind of a deicide The kind which with a pinpoint accuracy Removes even the subtlest hints Of human egoistic godhood Neglect these self-forged fetters And you’ll come to learn Their weight’s enough to drag you below Down below! But you chose to charge Head first into that deep With open arms and a wish To be reborn through it Was there anything to be found from those pits You hadn’t already lost in your descent Was the journey for nothing but to reach a dead end To curse all creation and return to whence you came To reach another dead end! To reach another dead end! The world stands accused and you think you know what it is to hate Yet unable to fathom why the loath should reach no-one but yourself Sure your back is straight As your words are true But you better get out of your rot Before I’ll break your fucking spine! Here you stand accused Exalted grudges came exposed Scream out a revelation Of what you took with you from the pits: You’ll be dragged below! You’ll be dragged below!

Mind swirling high above Yearning beyond Yet those shackles you created sink deep Thoughts locked in a death grip Beaten and battered Thrown against the walls Of the worlds that bind us To flesh to remain Long has your gaze searched Wandered through the skies For anything to reflect The fading shine of your life onto Lingered here wondering Whether any of the misery Came even close to bear a trace Of what could be seen divine Withering mortality Revival faced only in flames Stand the ground resolute Whatever fate there may befall In this end-time masquerade By the rule of those of might Old faiths to be lost Through embers red our paths will cross Witness these pyres Gather the will to burn With splendour seen by none For a thousand human lifetimes The sons of ages past Share a breath of that same Strength in ashes In the air and on our tongues Luminous apparitions Emerge and point the way From which we could uncover The secrets of our own deaths Withering, entering the blazing flames Stand the ground resolute Whatever fate there may befall In this end-time masquerade By the rule of those of might Old faiths to be lost Through embers red our paths will cross A spark ignited through heart and the core You’ll know yourself by the fresh spilt blood A blade transfixed through heart and the core And now even the undying night will die Withering mortality Revival faced only in flames Stand the ground resolute Whatever fate there may befall In this end-time masquerade By the rule of those of might Old faiths to be lost Through embers red our paths will cross

† Through the marrow of human suffering Roots of thoughts coiled around the throat An ache you know well enough From all of your lifetimes Levitating midst a millenia of pain And suddenly the scenery unfurled See beyond the flesh (Into the) house of once angelic beings Nothing remains to be awed upon Except your very own devilry Behold the ruins of existence House of once angelic beings Rebel spirits have left the temple Stole secret fire as they fled I have witnessed the likes before Pariahs of the heart and the will They grew claws to fight the ones Sinking into their souls Overcame the unearthly burdens Just to merge with the beast within †† ††† From the haze of virulent sights I stepped down to walk the earth The babel visions took their toll, I felt the world as if of my own breath Vengeful presence stirs inside Countless voices cried as one There grew a fire inside my brain Mankind’s pain into my flesh From the haze of virulent sights the babel visions took their hold Coiled fast around my core, I feel the world as if of my own breath There’s a fiery spark within my brain A strength from all those lives ago Guidance for me to see this through With mankind’s pain around my core Through the marrow of what consumes us Seeking, thrown against the worlds Took upon the weight of all those fetters Grasped what we could truly triumph over It is my journey to witness all of this Whether this is all that prevails Remnants of the hate our human ends amount to

________________________

Spawned two years ago from the Finnish black metal underground, NEPHILIM'S HOWL is undoubtedly a unique entity. Mostly organized in long tracks, their mid-tempo black metal utilizes stark yet scorching riffs, with great emphasis on pernicious atmospheres, a viscous sound gloating on its hypnotic qualities, and an outstanding vocal performance based on anguished, natural howls that seem to have more in common with punk and blues than with the typical black metal screeches.

At times melancholic, but never verging on depressive/suicidal black metal, the band's debut “Through The Marrow Of Human Suffering” is heavy, hazy, bleak and profound. It embraces the listeners in its asphyxiating coils, slowly dragging them down towards unfathomably dark existential abysses. And yet, it is a majestic fall, a dramatic descent to death realms underlined by epic riffs, ripping melodies, gut-wrenching guitar solos, the effective use of a synth, and the oppressing pulse of doomy rhythms interspersed with eruptions of sheer black metal violence.

“Lyrically, 'Through The Marrow Of Human Suffering' is about existential contemplation, manifested with intense imagery and a vivid language,” explains VJR, NEPHILIM'S HOWL guitarist. “It focuses on individual's place among the ages, the sensation of withering away like the glory of times past, but also thriving on the strength to be found from all of it in reflection to our history, piercing through what keeps us from our potential. The name of the band was chosen to reflect the trinity of beasts, men and gods, notably the founding themes present in mythological tales throughout the ancient past, as well as among the written expressions of NEPHILIM's HOWL.”
