1.
Eyes opened when everything burns A dead sun beating in our hearts In my dreams came back the crows And with them a raging flood So my gods can see me again In this place that we seek, in vain Turning ever toward the dawn Where my tears will take me home Great fire rages upon us Where lost souls returns A pray to this mortal coil A threnody to our home A place where gods and wolves Will howl as one once more Dweller on the threshold Guardian of the unseen world Bringer of fading words Draped in a shapeless ether For those whose destinies are crushed In the wheel of ages Look at them! With their fiery chariots Sacred herald of a past forlorn Leading the vessel to the river's shore They command men to sing and the blood to flow Hidden in their wooded cathedrals Unreachable across their dark clouds Yet they need our praise and our grief A spiral who binds us so deep Bring down the mirror Between here and after To honour the wounded deities Now and forever
2.
Clearing the path to an higher place Among the ashes of golden walls Memories asunder, offerings forgotten Once living stones, now wandering dust Ascending from the limb of a shining star Raising the weight of their psychic scars The leftovers will be gathered To weave the shroud of the ancient world As the sky reveals a bloody spear As the fire splits the sun, the moon rises As the spirit wanes, the form appears Archaic voices through the fade Endless echoes for the ages
3.
We are given to the rising Where the fires are becoming Watching these desolate meadows With my blind eyes to witness We will sing for those who saw their sons Glorious paths ended at the stake We will rise for those who saw their daugthers Virtues taken by scavengers's claws Visions will emerge from this night of a thousand tears Under a blossoming sky, temple of martyrs Awaiting us, beyond the dark veil As the wind sings an old god's tale Snakes are dancing on the pyre, ablaze A dialogue with the wounded stars, aflame Mother of every joy, Father of all sorrows Bow down before the flame with no shadow
4.
As the light goes down on this fanciful heaven A memorial for the fallen, a feast for the raven The day yelds its weapons to the endless night The sun goes dying as the moon becomes glaring Sending prayers to a new dawn To feel at home into the storm Stolen but unbowed we remain Preachers of an old hero’s lament Where horizons of reality ends When the misty shores of hope are reached Standing where the whispers of the ghosts Become the chorus of our legends Weaving my destiny by riding Among wounded stars lost in burning skies Following the path drawned by deities Drowning in the wake of dreams

about

Lunar Tombfields was born in early 2020 when the world was onlocked, at the edge of its fall. It seemed like the perfect time for M. (Absolvtion/Defenestration) to compose the four tracks of The Eternal Harvest. Joined shortly afterwards by Äzh (Natremia/Defenestration), the duo went into studio in early 2021 to record their first album at Darkened Studio. From its four long tracks, this album is an ode to the glory of the stars, the strength of the elements and the tragedy of human destiny.
