`Veil Of The Reaper´ ist der Abschlusstrack des neuen OUR DYING WORLD Langeisens „Hymns Of Blinding Darkness“, das am 24. Juni erscheint. Die US Melodic Death Metal Band ergänzt ihren ohnehin anspruchsvollen, komplexen Sound um Keys und Orchestrierungen, so dass sie selbst ihre bisherigen Releases im Vergleich als „primitiv“ bezeichnen.
sänger avid Ainsworth teilt seine Gedanken zum Track mit uns:
“It was the song that pushed us all out of our wheelhouse and got us to a new level of being comfortable with the level of musicianship in the band. The solos and leads in the songs are easily the hardest we’ve ever pulled off as a group. When we heard where the leads and solos were taking us, we decided to give this song an all-or-nothing approach, so we threw everything we possibly could into it to showcase where we’re going with this new lineup and the levels of the players in it. We wanted to also show the difference of the last record, which was considerably more death metal oriented, to the melodic direction we’re taking.”
Darkness clouds my eyes tonight while coldness drowns my fears
Softly spoken whispered words while blinded by my tears
Years of sorrow, wasted nothings fall into the black
I’ve gone too far and now it’s clear I’m never turning back
Can’t recall the last I saw but now it’s faded gray
Vanities begin to fade; in silence waste away
Before me stands the shroud of Death and with an outstretched hand
He beckons me to leave behind my memories and land.
I have become the cold and lost
Sleep now my spirit; fade to dust
The mystery of life is lifted
The path of death to all is gifted.
We are forever cursed to guide into the fray
We are the chosen ones to signal death of day
For now and ever more this wretched sin abides
To follow mourning path until the daylight dies
