August Price 05:03
In a dream As I was brought to those crumbling church walls In the midst of it all My mind played tricks, illusions took hold Haunting, the hour drew near Panic struck hard as daylight faded away Chasing a candle lit form The mind deceives, lies become truth Faceless demons discourse A ghost leads the blind in grief this night The only way is to recreate my life And pay the august price for one last goodbye Hollow throughout this phantom is sweetest pain
Starless 07:25
It clutters your mind Blinded by the stars Breaks down individuality Into pieces of a wish Emotions go misunderstood Closing curtains draw A dreadful applause From frightened skies We live in desperate times And on a stage I'm drowning In a pool where wolves lament And suns do not rise Underwater I dream Exposed and alone And whisper secret wishes In deaths arms A dream I want to believe
Nibelheim 06:36
Death comes smashing like a stone Aching heart is now alone In Nibelheim he haunts the halls The crumbling church forever calls us home Lilies sinking in a lake The suns descent at daybreak Shouting out to nothing in the dark Piercing the clouds heals no pain He’ll never see her face again In Nibelheim he haunts the halls Aching heart is now alone We share our world with ghosts of old Wingless birds that dare to fly Toothless vampires bled dry Shouting out to you in the dark Ghosts direct the play we share Spectres of the friends once there Its memories of you I’m shackled to Beyond this life I feel you waiting On the other side longing for rest Within this heart which beats for you Is a love pure longing for rest
Beneath the cover of night The churchyard stirs a dream Winter, a cold opus opposed Against my snowbound hand Denial, freezing My tainted soul withers Striking pain From this life of agony So sweet that which empowers The soul when light draws low Empty all that weep Into the lake of sorrow Beseeching in faith Distant tunnel lights Redemption, recovery From this life of agony I walk I breathe every lovers final distressful words And I see every dusk and dawn that they foretold I walked an old path for the last time Then blown away like candlelight Forgotten like snow that had once enrobed a death All life gone

"The great Pete Steele would definitely approve. Orphans Of Dusk deliver enormous, powerful goth-doom riffs that are infused with both delight and derision.” - DoomMetalHeaven

"Holy hell! You know that feeling you get when you have come across something that rocks you back on your heels? [...] Well, listening to ‘Revenant’ left my awesome-metal-sense tingling." - MetalDisciple

"My Dying Bride meets Type O Negative may sound too good to be true, but Orphans of Dusk come close. Revenant sounds like the product of a much more experienced band." - The Metal Observer

"Orphans of Dusk are clearly a band with heaps of talent, a lot on their minds, and the urge to pack 'Revenant' to the brim with content." - Doom-Metal

"Orphans Of Dusk is a duo with limitless potential.” - SorrowEternal

"Revenant is a great-sounding and great-looking release that is presented with great care and attention to detail. It skilfully balances ferocity and melancholy, varying between complexity and simplicity, first caressing and then pummelling. Perhaps most tellingly of all, when it’s over, you’re left wanting more." - DoomMetalHeaven

"Crawling from my speakers with a ponderous pace, the New Zealand/Australian band Orphans of Dusk is an amazing amalgamation of gothic doom in the vein of Type O Negative and Woods of Ypres, and death doom like old Katatonia and My Dying Bride." - Crown of Viserys
