about

As a precursor to their forthcoming second album, German black metal tyrants ASCENSION unleash the Deathless Light EP. Ever aptly titled, this two-song strike beams brilliantly with an illumination that can only come from the most fathomless, pure-obsidian depths of the spirit. ASCENSION's debut album, 2010's Consolamentum, became a classic in the underground not long after its release; it evinced a wealth of maturity in composition and execution for such a new band. Here, the quintet extend that maturity even further, unfurling orthodox black metal that brims with creativity and passion, fervor and professionalism, utter darkness and radiant glory, every note and nuance exactly where it should be and nothing wasted nor sacrificed. The title track will feature on ASCENSION's upcoming new album for W.T.C., while "Garden of Stone" is exclusive to this release. Deathless Light shines on...

Deathless Light

Dark god -timeless reign
ever – before – ever - after
silent - unchallenged
dark are the roots on which the prison was built
the walls crumble, the smiles fade
no one shall dare to speak thy name
cruesome wanderer
holy king
spiritual father of ages
and destroyer of aeons

wrathful god - cruesome reign
before everything – inside anyone
unsilent – awake
fading the sand on which the prison was build
the hour draws near, petrified pride
no one dares to speak thy name
cruel overlord of ages
bearer of deathless light

for thee we hang the infants on the highest tree
so that from afar they all shall see
that this is not the land of god
but the temple of the adversary

bow down and embrace
the lord ascending the throne
his blade we lead
his scythe we swing
his fire we shall bring

Al-la XUL
tempter of the night
slayer of men
deathless light
in every heart
in every breath
lies the lie
and the stench of death

our veins are opened for thee
our hearts are growning cold
shall we murder shall we slay?
before our flesh is growing old?
for behind the eyes
they speak to us
in cruesome ancient tongues
within us outside us
around us
the serpents crawl in furious fire

Al-la XUL
tempter of the night
slayer of men
deathless light
in every heart
in every breath
lies the lie
and the stench of death

Alla Xul – destiny-devilry
on dark tombs where nothing resounded
where we have dreamed, where we have lain
where we have awaited the night
where we have forged this chain
Alla Xul – shadow of death, anoint our heads and tear our souls apart
Alla Xul
we are thy breed
and forever shall we crawl

hang the infants on the highest tree
so that from afar they all shall see
that this is not the land of god
but the temple of the adversary

see now the infants in the highest trees
unsilently haunted sleep
shine now on us
tempter of the night
shine now through us
deathless light
