The Triumph Of Ruin

by The Howling Void

supported by


The Howling Void returns after 3 years with a brand new album of haunting, majestic folk/doom, continuing the evolution of sound which began on the "Runa" EP in 2013. "The Triumph Of Ruin" blends the traditional funereal atmosphere of previous albums with folk-inspired black metal touches. The end result is an album full of darkness, dread, and foreboding.

Track Name: Lords of Barren Fields
We are born into this cursed age
Burdened with the memory
Condemned to watch the rotten sun
Circle this dying orb
Yet we guard these furrows
Yet we stand in these lonely fields
Track Name: The Looming Darkness
This endless futile struggle against the looming darkness
Is not enough to break the spirit of those whom the gods adore
We will lay down among the weeds and ashes
From death shall spring life
Track Name: The Nine Worlds Wept
Track Name: Fenrir
I know all too well
Your haunting call in the night
A king among shadows
Dancing beyond the firelight
I am Odhinn slain by your claws
And I am Vidarr come riding upon that golden dawn
Track Name: Where Once A River Flowed
This furrow scarred into Earth
Will rise again
This fissure bathed in shadow
Will roar again
Track Name: Silence After The Storm
When the storm gives way to the gloom
When the Norns have spun their doom
When the cries have ceased to fill the air
They descend like shades of night
