about

“At its center, lies excellent production which renders every sound to its full impact, highlighting the effective guitar work, reverberating around a core of bleeding emotions radiation from the vocals.”

“The album continues to iterate on these ideas, hitting the listener again and again with those deep, unfolding, quieter segments (watch out for the electronic intro to the closing track, “Spoils”, and its incisive drums) only to later reap the emotional promise with deep-cutting vocals and payoffs.”

“Hallowed has no time for pretense and pummels the listener with its furious and heavy intent right out the gate.”

“The band, hailing from PNW by way of Portland, OR, brings the sludgy doom with the crushing ferocity of Souls At Zero-era Neurosis and cinematic metal of Amenra.”

Track Name: Horology
Does it bother you
That no one can see
Hiding in the trees
Looking back at us
Is a wicked face
With knowledge to share
That will change the face
Of humans
Forever
Forever
Forever
Forever

But if you just wait
The clock ticks away
Seconds seem to fade
Faster than one breathe
Open your third eye
Planets will collide
Blessed potency
Belly of the beast
Can you recognize
Essence will subside
Value in the dead
Poison spirit spread
Cracks in the facade
Swimming to survive
Drowning will weed out
Wasted spirits...
Swallow

Dormant waiting for you
Hidden beneath
Spell bound by devotion
Mistress speak
Major cataclysm
Spirit waken
Critical existence
Hand of fate

Cracks break wide in the floor
Swallow life swallow whole

Time is an illusion
Deep in the mind
Flirting with disaster
Seconds die
Looking back has warned us
Lightning strikes twice
Looking forward shows us
What we hide

Cracks break wide in the floor
Swallow life swallow whole

Swallow us
Swallow us
Swallow us
Swallow us whole
Track Name: Spoils
I've built an empire
You stand beneath it
Worship idols
They're falling
Worth stealing from you
Worth taking by force
The spoils of war
Will beautify me
And damn your gods

Saturn will ascend
His rising
Will mark your end

I will possess you
I will dissect you
Swallow your treasures
And burn
Your kingdom to the ground

Great father
All for, for you
Bear witness
Bear witness to this
This is all for you

Old secret writings
Guarded relics lost
Forever burning

Elementary as it is
I will take what I can get
Beautifying the Devine
You are lost I am your find
Parasitic ambience
In an effort to sustain
This immortality
You are the wind I am the plague

Oh malefic satellite
Brobdingnagian in size
Dark hand of destiny
Chained up no one is free
I am vessel made to burn
For your passage to return
This colossal sacrifice
Is for you

Spoils of war
Beautify me
Spoils of war
Liberate me
Spoils of war
Beautify me
Spoils of war
Liberate me
