Phosphor 05:07
Sick, white noise Tectonic ripples unfold your skull A thick miasma of pulsing light Just you wait… The synapse charge Murmuring Bone creaks and chattering of teeth And folding inwards on layers of grey Folding inwards upon orbit of grey Did revelation creep in Like pins and needles In your sleeping limbs Did love leave you slowly…?
Arc 06:17
A pillar rises in uncertain time As the breath of war obscures the sun The child rides against you on the battlefield Torn down In the name of the Divine A fervent hand seals the damned Do you revel in the iron taste Of fratricide She is not ours She is not of our tribe She is not ours She is not from our tribe… The behemoth stirs To rewrite your epitaph Betrayal washed in centuries Hypocrisy blown like ash Holy, now.
Torsion 07:17

Wilderness Hymnal Utrecht, Netherlands

Wilderness Hymnal is the solo project of British-Venezuelan musician and visual artist Javier Wallis.
Drawing on a hallucinatory Catholic childhood where church, forest and dark history weren't far away from each other, the result is a series of apocalyptic psalms that blur the lines between doom metal, glacial electronica, progressive rock and eerie folk music. ... more
