.​.​.​of Hate and Despair

/
  • Streaming + Download

    Includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

    The idea to publish the EP arose at the beginning of the Corona pandemic. Three songs on the 4-track EP are made from older song material that the band has revised over the past few months.
    The songs are about the deepest depths of human existence and society. The title track ‘... Of Hate And Despair’ symbolizes the theme of the EP and the feeling of hopelessness.
    In addition to the three new songs the EP contains an acoustic version of ‘Walking Dead’ and creates a direct reference to our first album Endtime Poetry, which was released in 2019.
    Special guests on the EP are Mindead singer Timo Fielker (vocals on ‘Walking Dead’), Jens Böhm of Darkness Ablaze (keyboards on ‘King Of None’, ‘…Of Hate And Despair’ and ‘Walking Dead’), Laura Welte (flute on ‘’King Of None’) and Julia Makein (violin on ‘Walking Dead’).

Fading Away 06:13
Nothing left to rise a scream I can no longer bear my misery Set me free Let death come over me My mind begins to fade away While illness devours my soul Nothing can save me anymore Evil spreaded through my flesh Filled my life with endless pain Death would be my salvation I will put an end to my life Nothing more I have to do Soon I’ll know 'bout afterlife What it holds for all of us Will we ever meet again When finally the time has come I spent my time relentlessly In solitude my life will end I ended up in this bed They told me that my time was up So now I am left here to die My mind is almost gone by now Twisted thoughts of salvation Darkness tries to swallow me This is the night I won’t survive

King of None 05:11
All my hatred applies to you Narrow-minded fucktard being Playing undisputed patriarch Ruling over your own blood Oh just look at you - king of some Your words pretend to be the law Violence - when they resist Oh just look at you - king of none Violence - your only means Oh just look at you - king of none Silence shall be the only thing To follow you into the void No one shall remember you For the curse that you have been Tomorrow as her world has died Thy honor seems to be restored Relentlessly you ended a life Wiped away this stain of shame Oh just look at you - king of some Your words pretend to be the law Violence - when they resist Oh just look at you - king of none Violence - your only means Oh just look at you - king of none Fuck your conception of honor Your religion, prophet and your way of life You're a worthless waste of biomass Be reborn as your offspring's little girl Silence shall be the only thing To follow you into the void No one shall remember you For the curse that you have been

I feel nothing But hate and despair All this pain in my heart Burns my soul from inside out Misery and grief Fill all my heart Don’t tell me that I should fear the night It's more that it occults What I fear inside I hide myself here I don't want to see That my mind is full Of hate and despair Living in this gloomy world I feel insignificant I feel so worthless My soul is lost and damned I'm longing for the end Don't tell me that I should fear the night It's more that I fear What I feel inside I hide myself here I don't want to see That my mind is full Of hate and despair

Rivers are running dry Memories fading away Sickness running through my veins No one will remember my name Am I still alive? Am I still breathing? Am I still alive? Am I still breathing? My mind is vanishing Vanishing into the grey So that I can’t feel anything Nothing will stop this decay Release me from this endless pain All efforts were in vain I am a walking dead, so just take me away Put an end to this nightmare, this is my last farewell Bury me, bury me, bury me Deep inside the woods Blend the traces of my misery Savor the moment Before the wave crashes over you I am a walking dead, so just take me away Put an end to this nightmare, this is my last farewell Unfold your wings Let the winds carry you Find the strength to carry on Before death takes you away forever I am a walking dead, so just take me away Put an end to this nightmare, this is my last farewell

about

Halls of Oblivion Stuttgart, Germany

Unlike their name might suggest; Halls of Oblivion will stick in one’s memory.

Deep in the gloomy "halls of oblivion", a tender melody and a whispered word suddenly become a roaring composition with brutal riffs and heavy words. Merciless and honest, the depths of the human soul are awaiting the listener within fictional walls. ... more
