Coma Burn 11:37
Hostage to a history of tormenting grey Draped in times of perpetual strain Blind to each moment I strive to see In a coma I fuel the flames of grief The shroud of smoke cowers and daunts Polluting the mind with crippling haunts Doubt is risen and desire falls frail When a broken spirit rests bitterly still The poison dissipates as winds cleanse the sky Flames burn tame invoking vision to a blind eye Encompassed by tranquility A being reborn Is scathed by betrayal and scarred by scorn Hatred is spawned by a love once drowned The harp of grace cried a bellowing sound A coma burn regressed to an infectious wound As light deflects from a misanthropic moon
Engravings 09:36
Days blur together Fading in obscurity Nightmare of my mind Tortured by reminiscence Haunted by bittersweet memories As acid rain corrodes and drains Rendered engravings impose woeful shame Gracefully fierce with a tone that abrades Lacing a trait that sinks and fades Chasmal and eternal They dispel vitality Compulsive and incessant They deprave morality Like a stigma burned into the hide of an animal They exemplify enslavement to an infallible malefactor As I drift withdrawn from a state of solace A blanket of haze is sought with haste Beneath an ephemeral shelter of crimson cirrus I am transfixed by grace until impaled and displaced
Tempest 20:35
With a gaze into the seas Swelling with bile Intimations unveil Divine yet vile A solitary lust Spores into deterioration And douses the candle of reconciliation Cherish the asylum For it will soon decay And wither into a hell Manifested by dismay Into the toils of despair We are bludgeoned by desire Bound by truth Within a disillusioned mire Voices of distress Plead for serenity In the hour of tempest Accursed with tyranny Cease this agony Black sea Swallowing misery Forever Shimmer vanishes Close my eyes Prosperity is smeared by an insurgence of strife Our blood flows tainted with a willowing blight The tempest succumbs into an enigmatic slumber As our dreams are deemed spoiled In the absence of light

Lycus Oakland, California

Although Oakland's LYCUS is a slow, measured doom band at heart, the band’s sound stems from of a wide array of influences including black metal, death metal, noise, darkwave, and shoegaze. LYCUS’s particular take on mortality and inevitability is conducted on such a great scale that the band might as well craft dirges for the interment of the entire universe. ... more
