Scott Johnson I love this album because it came from the heart of some of the nicest people on the planet. It's honest and raw emotion. Favorite track: Wildfire.

H.L. It is good to hear that - six years after the previous release - the "eternal night" is still not over.

EVIG NATT are one of the most dynamic gothic death metal bands. While other acts of this genre nearly turned into pop bands, EVIG NATT stayed heavy and extremely intense.

Besides the powerful growling (which contributes an important part to the dark atmosphere), Kirsten Jørgensen's soulful voice is absolutely heartrending and one of the best in this genre.

Overwhelming hymns as always! Favorite track: Silence Falls.

How I Bleed 07:42
Gradually the leaves turn to gold They offer me the promise of an end Still I know the end won’t come And I’ll burn in the fire of fall The ocean eats the rays of light Cold at heart I just stand and stare As they break through the clouds Into the black they disappear Exhausted I sleep without any relief Nothing changes but the scenery Once again we stumble only to find there is no one there to break the fall Everything’s gone I accept my fate Enduring hate in the silence of this womb The irony is that history repeats itself, tiring the soul. How I bleed for you, how I bleed for you Silence me with sweet stories Wrap me in memories no longer allowed I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe, lie and seethe Thought it be peaceful, oh how I bleed, how I bleed You pierce me with your ice cold stare How I envy your beauty, your being And how you never really care that I’ll love you forever eternally The omnipresent rumble of the sea conceals the pain from everyone but me When words aren’t enough I want to trust that time will heal, but I’ve lost all faith You blind me with lies that I want to believe Open my eyes to the truth I can feel You pierce me with words that I have to believe, have to believe The golden blaze of April meadows Omen of dark times ahead The life it brings means nothing to me Speaks of what’s not to be Forgotten mirrors, covered up Reflecting ghosts of the past Shadows dance across the glass Before fleeing into the dark As I walk through the swaying grass On hilltops lingering with long light I know that I’ll remember this forever

Memories of a summer take hold in rays of clarity Like a veil of smoke between trees it drifts away When you come to near On our shoulders, autumn rests without a shadow Like a mighty deliverer it passes us by Silence falls like snow covering your unrest that rests in mine All that’s left are snowdrifts in the shape of the storms breath Everything is so clear Another cycle has been completed Without you here Everything is so clear when you are not here Winter frost travels the land left barren Ghosts of the past dance across the night sky Reminiscent shadows of you and I Seasons are changing and swiftly pass like heavy rainfall. Will it wash you away? Still without an answer I lay my head back I follow and crawl into your shadow Shelter from the turning earth, the blazing sun and the restless wind, into your shadow

In god I grieve, so many he forsakes My shadow is cast the same way even though I am not one to pray Come now sorrows, burden my chest Senseless you drink from the cracked cup Shameless you swallow whatever’s served He’s there for the weak, became a tool for the mighty With neither I’ll ever belong Because there is no god, just my soul unfulfilled A sadness that took me and left me to sin I’ll search for my own church, ’til then there’s this Only one thing’s for certain, we all die without his kiss Look to the heavens! Search the dark seas! There you’ll find nothing, so let nothing set you free For the sun gives her blood freely and her fire is life She’s the true light, desire and sight In god I grieved, he never granted his light Alone I am free, free from his blight Seraphic longings are laid to rest Rid the burdens crushing my chest So now drink the poison, you’re misled to believe is the sacrificed blood of his flesh and seed It won’t bring no forgiveness to the cruelty you breed If you don’t release yourself you’re just another lamb to the slaughter Look to the heavens! Search the dark seas! There’ll you find nothing Let nothing set you free

Aleina i mørkets timar skjerma i hule hender Stormen bevege seg øve meg der eg ligge svøpt i svarte kleder Eg fryse ikkje, Lar na leva villt i meg, riva og røska Hu komme ikkje med falske løfter Nådelaust tar hu det hu vil ha Ingen kan finna meg der eg kvile djupt i tankar ingen andre våge tenka Hu ulme rondt meg, men vil meg ikkje vondt Eg stole på stormen og følge mitt mot I mørknå e og dei skinnhellige grå Ingen sleppe onna, her må alle gå den same tunge veien uten å belønning få Stille før stormen, men det va då Hu rase for fullt, ingen kan stoppe na nå Vise kje hensyn, her e me alle lika små Stille før stormen, ta deg i akt, hu dømme uten forakt Skrike høgt og slår ifra seg Fange deg inn i all evighet Eg lar meg kje skremma av kalde kjærtegn og tunge steg Kjenn på din frykt! For me leve aldri så masse så då Hu får meg for evig og alltid Mektig og sterk, hu e rettferdig

Wildfire 05:29
To think that there'd be hope for me I didn't dare believe My way so endlessly lonely I could not see the end As out of a dream Like a ghost in the night With a silvery brush and the lightest touch You are here, are you here? Is this real, it's too real. I'm afraid that you'll leave Close my eyes, make believe You broke the fall and came to save me You changed the path that I was taking Are you here? Are you real? It's too real! I thought that I'd be on my own Lost inside a storm You reached out and pulled me closer Maybe there's an end As I awake from chasing shadows at night Swift as wildfire in this bare wasteland You are here, are you here? Is this real, it's too real. I'm afraid that you'll leave Close my eyes, it's a dream You saved my soul and came to claim it You found my heart and tried to mend it Are you here? Are you real? It's too real! But you're here, now you're here Let me sleep, let me dream! Please don't leave, please don't leave!

A storms breath sought to keep thoughts at bay Turn your back on my shadow cast your way Swiftly dancing across cold walls Seeking shelter in the light from shadow’s claws Days are lost to eternities grasp A quiet sob travels further than you think Take heed before you wage your war Nothing is as it was before Take heed before you wage your war Nothing is as it was before My fingers are blackend by your firey touch Bringer of ice you’ve scorned me Twilight at the end of the day Promised hope that never comes my way. Listen close, and you’ll hear my heart It beats loud, have I outplayed my part? You are lost to me but I will wait For the day, when you will return to me Emerce myself in the darkest of thoughts Hoping this wasn’t all for nought Emerce myself in the darkest of thoughts Hoping this wasn’t all for nought My fingers are blackend by your firey touch Bringer of ice you’ve scorned me

Svartsinn 06:53
Eg lokke meg inn i mørket Eg stenge meg inne i mørket Kor allting blir ditt Ingen kan se meg Bevege meg barra der aua e blindt, aua e blindt I golle landskap, kor skyggane rår, skyggane rår Tungt når kvar ein knaus blir te fjell Tungt når alle byr sitt farvel Reisen ekje for alle Få komme fram Veien e långe i Skomringsland Mørke favne om dei sarte små Di må alle gå aleina på bare føtter Vandra inn i mørke Få komme fram Veien e långe i Skomringsland Eg øyne kje håp Du seie eg må stogga min gråt Eg ser ingen slutt Her e det ingen vei ut For eg leve i svartsinn Sleppe kje taket, sjøl om eg vil For eg leve i svartsinn Stramme sitt grep Svartsinn Svartsinn Et hjerta slo rot i mørket Stengt inne i mørket Lest som ei åpen bok Ingen hørre meg Lyden forsvinne alle e blinde, alle e blinde I vissent landskap kor mørket består, mørket består Eg står for fall i mitt eget blod Såret e djupt, det vil aldri gro
9.
In dreams, you’re never far away You forgive me my sadness and say, “Let your tears fall to the ground The creature of us broke our hearts” Will I escape this emptiness? The void you filled, I cannot give up Our hearts entwined, as one they sound Forever we are two, destined to walk alone Distant and cold with weathered emotion Keep hiding in the shadows, lie to me and look away Deep inside I can feel who you really are The moon wept for us When our dreams once touched Still I want to drown in your sweet tasting lies
