Shadows grow over your own A bitter chill descends, are you sure you are alone? Such rage, it can defy the grave Don't tread on me, for you it's too late to step lightly Now you're hellbound, guilty (fool me once) Hellbound and guilty (take my pride but never twice) You are the key, malice unlocked from the cage I'm going to... I'm going to haunt you when I die And I will watch you, watch you cry No sooner than I've closed my eyes My spirit will begin to rise And this a promise I will keep Malicious target on your back Hunted by something in black Too late to regret your misdeed I'm going to... I'm going to haunt you when I die As you sleep I reach out for thee knife in my back Now you're hellbound, guilty (fool me once) Hellbound and guilty (take my pride but never twice) You are the key, malice unlocked from the cage I'm going to... I'm going to haunt you when I die And I will watch you, watch you cry

Described as a talented successor to Type O Negative and Woods of Ypres, Orphans of Dusk demonstrates the ability to write memorable songs with powerful riffs, weaving heaviness and beauty into a lush gothic atmosphere.

This Winter, Orphans of Dusk opens their goth-doom gasket again, coming back to life to present “Spleen,” their haunting new album. Spreading its vice over 8 songs, “Spleen’s full length duration enables the band, over the course of 50 minutes, to bring listeners further into their sublime dark universe, pushing further all facets that gave its identity in the first place. “Spleen” picks up where “Revenant” left, immediately displaying a well produced record and melodies that will immediately find its place in many gothic and doom music libraries. On “Spleen,” Orphans of Dusk however chooses to focus less on the previous atmospheric death-doom elements, and more on the gothic vocals and guitar harmonies. As a result, “Spleen” hits like a stake through the heart – it is the band’s most mature offering to date, and one that should gather the world’s gothic-doom scene’s attention.

Recommended for fans of Type O Negative, Woods of Ypres, Unto Others, Helevorn, A Pale Horse Named Death, and My Dying Bride.
