about

Ered Wethrin Salt Lake City, Utah

ERED WETHRIN is the 3rd band from Salt Lake City, Utah, that signed to Northern Silence, and occasionally it may remind the listener of CALADAN BROOD or SUMMONING.

While the lyrics also deal with epic fantasy themes (Horus Heresy, Black Company, Malazan Book of the Fallen, etc.), the style of the music tends more towards the Scandinavian Symphonic Black Metal of the 90s...

Track Name: Frozen Rivers
Frozen Rivers

What dreams here may come?
Frozen rivers lost in time
What vestige of life do I seek?
The soul is lost to eternity

Approaching the precipice, the pinnacle
What vantage can I take?
Shadows of a dying light obscure the pathway
Leaves of ice fall to my feet

Coalescing ice-winds whisper liberty
I've got to let my spirit free
Soaring high above the darkened vastness
The cold grey crags where my warmth bleeds

What dreams here may come?
Frozen rivers lost in time
What vestige of life do I seek?
The soul is lost to eternity

Approaching the precipice, the pinnacle
What vantage can I take?
Shadows of a dying light obscure the pathway
Leaves of ice fall to my feet

Coalescing ice-winds whisper liberty
I've got to let my spirit free
Soaring high above the darkened vastness
The cold grey crags to which I cling
Track Name: Frigid Tides
Frigid Tides

O' frigid tides
Your sons gone to war
Fire and Ice
Spread forth to salt the Earth

Hail of arrows
Storm of swords
Rush of steel
Clashing iron lords

Doomed to die
War is my domain
Call of fire
I will claim it all

Deep in the heart of the Mott Wood
No fortress of fastness abides
Yet here in the war-striken Mott Wood
Sorcery and darkness claim your life

Sons of the Blacksword descended
Ravens have taken to flight
Necromancer's poisons and mantras
Blinding the Cadre's sight

Hear the fortress in the sky
Taste of blood and sacrifice
See the fires raising high
Know that you are doomed to die

The frigid tides of war rush over
And even gods of man will die
When all the world has burned over
Then shall peace and loss reside
Track Name: Bloody Annals and Brooding Skies
Bloody Annals & Brooding Skies

March - Marching on
March - Marching home
To lands unknown
Glittering fields of Stone

Water sleeps
Bids our return
Silver Spike
Brings us strife

Journey on to Khatovar where destiny will sound its call
Fight and live or fight for death, one and all
In this land where shadows linger, dread-lords will hunt and hound
Feel the heavy hand of doom from all around

Blackened souls forged by strife
United by the words abound
Brothers lost and brothers found
March a warpath through the night

Howl your pain to the skies above
Feel the anguish snuff out the dying sun
Rest now forever in eternal slumber
Drink deep the sorrow and march on

We're marching home

Walk the tallest mountains
Plunge the darkest depths
Fight the running battles
Hold the failing walls

Walked the path to the guardian stone crushed the shards of glassen rock under my toes
Weathered boots on blooded feet plodding to a final repose, where at last I am free, leave behind blood and bone.

Now eternity is in my mind
Blowing winds caress my face and its howling lets me sing
As a specter a breeze through great vast fields
Over mountains, to the shores of unyielding seas

Howl your pain to the skies above
Feel the anguish snuff out the dying sun
Rest now forever in eternal slumber
Drink deep the sorrow and march on

Marching on
We're Marching home
Track Name: Into the Stars
Into the Stars

From ancient lands of mine
Into the cosmic sky
Beyond the orbs
Through stellar winds

Blazing bright fires, Blue flames of light
Impenetrable vastness , Cold voids of ice

I have become one with the stars
Immeasurable grandeur, flow of it all
-We have war-
Vast, endless, star-filled night

From ancient lands of mine
Into the cosmic sky
Beyond the orbs
Through stellar winds

Blazing bright fires, Blue flames of light
Impenetrable vastness , Cold voids of ice

I am ascending into the stars
Realm darkness and sovereign light
-We have war-
Vast, endless, star-filled night

Blazing bright fires, Blue flames of light
Impenetrable vastness , Cold voids of ice

Blazing blue-bright pyres, Burning brilliant tides
Imperceivable vastness, Cold voids of ice
Maelstrom-swirl of gasses, Towering pillars high
Cold-worlds of darkness, long devoid of life
Track Name: Realm of the Tryant
Realm of the Tyrant

Echelons of power
Binding runes of pain
Ancillary tributes
Feeding his name

To be the capstone of controlled existence
Slaves to perceived gods whom they would supplant

Black Winds, scorching sands
Lashing barbs of fire
Freezing night, vacuous sky
Veins recast with ice
Track Name: Requiem for the Fallen
Requiem for the Fallen

Brothers fight together and fall
Behold the blades of shadow and light
Fighting the beasts on the land and in sky-keeps
Wings of flight show how high the price
Behold now their blood soaks this earth
Soaks this earth

Do you feel their pain?
Can you see they're bleeding?
The gods are dying
The gods are dying

Your visions falsely clouded by the blood on your eyes
Your crown will crash and fall as befits this grave betrayal

Blacken the skies
Darken my eyes
I am not a son of light
Flaring out in despair
In this turgid, sordid hell

Betrayal permeates the air
Smoke is rising to the sky
Blood of gods soaks this ground
And in their honor I raise a cairn

I raise a cairn for the fallen heroes

Oh! The weight!
Oh! The great burden of grief
A burning wrath subsumed by anguish
I fall to knees and howl to the skies above
Track Name: Stellar Graveyard
Stellar Graveyard

Beyond the stellar drifts
Through gaseous clouds, discarded shrouds
Above the galactic plane
Cold night thy crown

A giant clad for war
Bright heart, consuming need to forge
An iron death, a final breath
In glory rest forever more
