The Noose The Noose - Claret Ash Pandora's child Opens the box and succumbs to greed Fill your maw, fill your pockets Fill your heart till it starts to bleed Your midas touch Poisons all that surrounds you These golden shackles pull you under You weave a noose Around your throat To pull yourself up to the sun You weave your noose Until you choke to stay in the light of the sun As Icarus you fly Burning out your eyes Reaching for that golden light You weave a noose Around your throat To pull yourself up to the sun You weave your noose Until you choke to stay in the light of the sun As the eclipse Darkens the sky You fall to earth Your hollow promises turn to ash in the mire Breathe in, Suffocate, Exhale, Regret.
Plague Bearer Plague Bearer - Claret Ash The creation of life through technology The trepidation of death and damnation This is the downfall This is the descent The altercation and preservation Perspectives declined for a shadow transpires The transgression into an inevitable fire The plague bearer The omission of silence The plague bearer The human are a virus Neglect of compassion Have torn the wings of veneration Once flown to great heights Now crawling Neglect of compassion Have torn the wings of veneration Once flown to great heights Reclusion for survival This is the downfall This is the descent A culture of disdain and hauteur - The plague bearer Erodes the fabric of life - The omission of silence Scorned, the earth now scorched - The plague bearer The flame does flicker away - The human are a virus The altercation and preservation Perspectives declined for a shadow transpires The transgression into an inevitable fire This is the downfall This is our descent This is our Paradise Lost.
The Gyre The Gyre - Claret Ash Succumb to the night The revolution of reset Tomorrow is a new day Another chance at change A small reflection Upon ones self Causes the ripple of permutation The wind of evolution is here And it's time to reflect A convergence of filth That poisons all life In the shadow below The Gyre churns and revolves Shame forms a blade That cuts through all life In the shadow below The Gyre churns and revolves A desolate wasteland A floating island An eye of an enemy Spewing forth your reality The scar on the world Self inflicted casualty Speaking the truth you don't want to hear.
Behold the Chalice Behold the Chalice - Claret Ash Behold the sequence of events that causes your moment of decline The burden that I hold from a masterpiece of many The visions of atrocity - The face of reality Pulled into the darkness - Through no fault of your own The visions of atrocity - The face of reality Pulled into the oblivion - You've always known Your freedom has receded and now becoming a conclusion To satisfy their delusions through the burning hallucinations Your stance so tall but overshadowed by a heavy burden Small as the lone wolves without a final stand Death by association The blood is on your hands No empathy, nor compassion For you or your degradation Beheld in the chalice of great expanse The poisoned liquid laced with depravity The scourge of masses to burn it down Illuminating this darkness To fill the void of emptiness Illuminate this darkness.
Like Tears in Rain Like Tears in Rain - Claret Ash Cast aside for their abated weakness Sublime compassion diluted into a watery grave Humanity with such inhumane deliverance Strength in numbers has led to my wandering ideals Never known - Never felt Never mind - It never ends Never realise - Nevertheless Never mind - It never ends As their tears cascade I wipe away With my caring hands As they shift their consciousness As it falls towards the ground The tears, your tears slowly penetrate The earth, the tree, under my feet The strength in numbers now cause a flood As the tears fall towards the ground The tears, your tears slowly penetrate The earth, the tree, where I lay A paradise degraded and destroyed Fed liquidised compassion I struggle to maintain an empathetic outlook Upon the self destructive masses As the decline begins to unfold.
Vicissitude Vicissitude - Claret Ash You are born blind Stunted growth in body and mind The bane of all existence Like a worm you're disregarded Modify and change - To eliminate this rage Modify and change - You're the cause of great distress My vision of this world A shadow cast from humanity's disgrace Descending to the ground Beyond all thoughts of redemption Renounce and surrender ideals The reclamation of morals The restoration of life lost Of dreams once worn now stolen A scourge of misfortune From the burden of mistrust.
Fragility of Existence The Great Moth that Swallowed the Sun The Great Moth that Swallowed the Sun - Claret Ash Anthropocentric greed Coalesces into spears of light As the moth descends It swallows the sun we birthed so bright Blinding and sickening Though the fires die our skin still burns and sears Day turns into night - The glowing holocaust is here Hollow and cancerous Ionic flames Pierce our souls and the great moth looks on Ready to devour our remains I am become death - Destroyer of Worlds Bend to my will and burn Leave nothing - Scour the earth And after the bombs have fallen and man is but a memory The chrysalis will open spilling forth the will of the Earth In reclamation of the stars I am become death - Destroyer of Worlds I am the dream - Now awake and alive We stole the essence of stars And with this gift we made our spears To destroy, not to create In reclamation of the seas In reclamation of the wilds In reclamation of the snows In reclamation of life.
The Great Adjudication The Great Adjudication - Claret Ash The moon, the sky, the great divide The Great Adjudication The moon, the sky the great divide The birds cascade and in turn fly high As the rivers overflow with fury As he emerges from the shadows of old A creation of mud and twigs takes hold Natural selection such beauty is gone Nature's selection your life foregone I see the damage By your hands the cause I see the future torn apart Forlorn The Great Adjudication - You've crossed the line Natural selection such beauty is gone The Great Adjudication - The world is torn Nature's selection your life foregone Twisting and turning And failing I yearn For this nightmare to resolve For someone to stand as I kneel To bring an end to it all.
In other words, I feel that what you hear is the voices of the tormented, not of the tormentors. If one reads the lyrics, the poem Iskandar Hasnawi has written for the album, it is actually a pretty humane terror that they describe from what I've been able to extract , the fear of de-humanization in a future of constant war, murder and destruction. It is valid to think that this is probably far more frightening though remember that some of the best horror movies prefer to show the face of the victims rather than that of the killers when the latter enter the scene.
It is ironic really how rare in extreme metal darkness and for a lack of a better word evil are taken seriously. I think they are viewed more like a temporary deliquency, an expulsion of energy that brings one back to balance like watching a C- horror flick, listening to a black metal album and so on. I don't often see in metal this willingless to create a world out of this darkness and dive in it fully. And I'm just talking about basic psychic drive, no reason to compare the scope and immensity of Elend's endavour to that of any metal band.
What is the meaning of it all, for Elend though? Darkness is alluring although it is basically, deathlike. A paradox we have perhaps yet to resolve as a human species.
In the end, "A World in their Screams" stands on a somewhat uncertain, tragic ground. On the one hand, it is a perfect artistic achievement, sculped to last the passing of time.
It is a "magnum opus", a culmination of vision and wisdom from a band that showed a brilliance that was somewhat fragmentary in its previous works.
The problem with these works, especially such densely complex and demanding in physical and spiritual labor such as this, is that they well, if one lets them obliterate the future of the artist. It is to be expected perhaps that Elend and even individually, Renaud Tschirner and Iskandar Hasnawi since then have not released any new music to the public to be more precise, Hasnaui has just released a personal demo track at the time of writing.
On the other hand, where can you go from here? It is probably impossible, if not meaningless to do the exact same things and try to surpass them again and again. Bands, probably in the anguish of retaining their audience, attempt it all the time and fail. Artists need to urgently re-define themselves at this point; what they do, why they do it and how they will achieve it. Elend also have another side in their music, perhaps best represented by their "Winds devouring men" album, additionaly they are a kind of band that one would trust for honesty and innovation even within the quite secluded field that they have marked for themselves.
In any case, I would be very eager to listen to any new music from them, wherever it might stand in terms of style or vision. If you like Unholy Baptism, you may also like:. It's just so fucking good; what can I say?
The Density Parameter by Mesarthim. Very electronic driven atmospheric or cosmic black metal, which is something they've always perfected. This album, though it isn't my favorite, shows they still got it and they aren't slowing down anytime soon.
Visual Complexity. Coma Wall E. Presence E. The new EP from atmospheric black metal masters Mesarthim finds them more triumphant and symphonic than ever.
