LORD ORPHEUS I always find myself scouring the internet and depths of bandcamp looking for quality black metal like Arthedain. This EP, although short, is absolutely dark, violent, and beautiful all at once the whole way through. I fully intend on buying this EP again for a physical copy as well as anything else this band plans to put out. Instant classic. Don't sleep on this EP.

xavage j'aime beaucoup la richesse des riffs, les envolés, les ruptures et l'incroyable mélodie de ces morceaux. Et la batterie "tabanne" dur tout autant qu'elle se tait.
"Vision of fire" est génial aussi. Favorite track: Traverse The Path Of Thorns.

about

Arthedain Prague, Czech Republic

Arthedain was formed as a solo project in early 2014 by Charles Wolford. The first EP, "By The Light Of The Moon", was recorded in the Carpathian Forest, Transylvania. In August 2014, drummer Tobias Schuler joined the group in time to record the majestic EP "Arias Exalted". The band creates dark and violent soundscapes that are complemented by topics of desolation, occultism, and death. ... more

Track Name: Through Immolation Sparked
O Great Pan, I summon thee to guide me through the dark
Light my path with the raven flame through immolation sparked
Wanderer of the woods and mountains, make your presence known
Lead me to isolation, where the deepest rivers flow.

Lightning flashes across the sky, a blaze of dissolution
The Death-Bringer rides his steed tonight, in search of retribution.

The end will follow;
To Chaos we shall return
By your radiance blinded,
And by your visage burned.

O Great Pan, I summon thee to guide me through the dark
Light my path with the raven flame through immolation sparked
Wanderer of the woods and mountains, make your presence known
Lead me to the hidden path whose name is carved in stone.
Track Name: Visions Of Fire
O Anti-Cosmics; reign in your majesty,
Sworn to the blackest flame for eternity.
In winter’s grasp beneath the freezing skies
All shall come to pass before my very eyes.

Vile spirits
Blackened souls
In the depths of the abyss
On the infernal throne

Visions of fire
Grasping for clarity
Shining through darkness
Reveal yourself to me.

A great storm builds on the horizon as the sky dissolves to red
The waters soon will mirror this as they swell with the dead.
A black moon shines it’s barren light on the few that remain
The crows take hold and consume the souls of those who twist in pain.
Track Name: Traverse The Path Of Thorns
Footsteps fall on this radiant path in the nightfall
And the hours turn to days hastily.
The whispering wind evokes the name of an intimate
But the next moment fades into the distance.

The horizon beckons with its elegant splendor
So I travel to the water as if I’m in a dream.
The sun turns black in an eclipse as I arrive
And beauty turns to darkness beneath an empty sky.

As I walk this path of thorns I do so with open arms:
I embrace the end, for aeons must rescind.
Wondrous departure from this existence
Soon my eyes will open, consuming light from the other side.
