about

Wilderness Hymnal Manchester, UK

Javier Wallis is not interested in repeating the familiar. Immersive and evolving, his work as Wilderness Hymnal splices old modes into a new idiom, seeking intense connection with the audience by blurring the lines between seething drone, operatic turmoil, shapeshifting post-rock and eerie, apocalyptic piano music. ... more

Track Name: Phosphor
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…?
Track Name: Arc
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.
Track Name: Torsion
Impatient, always
Since the young seeds grew
Observing cycles of flame to gunpowder
Until the bitterness beat them blue

And the water no longer flows
And I grow tired of damage and repair
Nailed down in one position
Watching the dust blow away

Brother, let the barbs roll off
Brother, just let the arrows fall
Brother, why can't you just
Let the barbs roll right off
