On this earth - lay me down
Soil my blood - this shell will fade
Gods with eyes - i'm ready now
At the hanging tree - giver of life
Great mother heal - I will rise

(I believe in you - we all keep the flame
We are all pure flame inside)

Down spiraling outward
Revive to survive
Prey to the mystics
Prey on

Dust falls through my hands
Dreams shatter away
Burning glow turns to ash
Thrown to wind

The weave in my dreams
My strength of fates
The tunneling helix
Tongue a flame

A healing delusion
Beyond true will
A seering blue gaze
Breath my fire

What hath god wrought
Divine misthought
No senses, cold and sedate
A self-imposed
Fear-driven state
Too hurt to see
Unhidden truth
Increasing void
Worsened fate

    General CommentThe survivor of the apocalypse is now going insane, very slowly. Seven minutes of slowly mutating vocals, from one of the few clean vocal areas to a vicious scream crying to the heavens.

    Now, it speeds up as his mind is crashing down, with more of that mountainous riffage adding the requisite amount of tension.

    There are more consistently heavy albums out there, but Through Silver in Blood's soft sections have pretty much just as much intensity, which is very rare and the sign of an amazing record. This is definitely the heaviest record of all time, even though on paper it seems tame against some of the really heavy grindcore and other things. It's how it was written that makes it heavy, and Strength of Fates is quite an example.
