  • Loviatar - Limited edition gold and black swirl LP
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    LOVIATAR borrow equally from the hazy gloom of My Bloody Valentine and the crushing riffs of Isis. With clearly sung vocals and equal parts sombre and soaring, their thunderous elements of doom and post-metal contrast with hypnotic moments of atmospheric introspection to set them apart from others in the genre.

Track Name: Nascent (Stygian Wyrm Part I)
I: Nascent

Born of a passion
To avenge a fallen breed
Once craven, once frail
Their extinction was foretold

From a brood to the sea
Lightning splits the sail
Her fire’s from the sky

(Ruined on a shore unknown)

Waves of reflection
Seeking solace on the isle
Thoughtless, feral gaze
The dreaded hunter’s eyes

Crossed the reef to realms of men
His scales disappear
His wings he has forsworn

(A traitor to himself, reborn)

Brought from his shame to salvation,
A heart wreathed in flame;
He watched her burn
Betrayal weeps from the lance of
He watched her turn

To the fire,
A vow
Joined in the power of
… the Stygian
Track Name: Discordant (Stygian Wyrm Part II)
II: Discordant

Upon my throne I slept

Bloodied my kingdom wept

Forsaken the truth; in her eyes,
Promised the sky

Fury has been uncaged

Now bare
Gazing into the void

Impaler will grant me, companion
that which we both have sought
My fear mirrored in your eyes
for murder we have wrought

Black wings
Take flight
Ascend into the night
So pure
Her reign we shall endure

Betrayed is the truth in her eyes,
Sworn to a lie
Track Name: Ascendant (Stygian Wyrm Part III)
III: Ascendant

First light
shining over scale and steel
Thirty-six thousand years of
living death
Our fate is all but sealed

Reigning night
Will the arms of the Goddess
embrace us?
In a stolen promise’s kiss
Haunted by the screaming eyes
I regret

Soar into the sun
Now it is done
We two are one
Lo and behold
As was foretold
So ends their woe
Track Name: Blind Goddess of the Nine Plagues

The sea is dark and cold
As are the gods of old
From the deep She reaches
across time

The sky is blackened by
Her wings a mile across
The age of fire lain low

Shattered tor
Clinging to his aegis
The last deceit of the holy man
The shriveling throne
The shrouded crown

Pestilent North wind
Spawn of Gehenna arises
Wretches, vipers: damnation
Woe unto Gaia
The witch queen

And the nine plagues rage
Ruin of all
Blind daughter of Tuoni
Split the earth asunder
Her cold embrace before the fall
Visions of hopelessness,
grief and misery
Oh the torment and woe

Our lady of sorrow
Handmaiden of pain
The willing whip awaits
