    Album Reviews

    Drone Metal will not be a genre acclaimed by the public, but few sometimes you find interesting proposals within this derivative of doom metal. "REVERENTIA" defines well the concepts of the metal drone, without leaving it alone, plays with the raw settings of black and death metal, giving it a heavier and torn sound in our ears.

    Duane Patterson

    The music on Reverentia was takes on form of post-metal is impregnated with black metal atmospherics, layers of shoegaze wall-of-sound sonics and doom metal riffs, creating a drone metal beast! They manage to be really heavy and really ethereal all at the same time, which a very good thing.

    Lyrics

    Weight of the World

    The cancer of this world
    Transgresses against the one true God
    The eyes are growing dim
    As we watch our own hearts sin
    But the true fountain of life is found
    In Your grace and Your abounding love Lord
    You shared Your love with us

    You make the crooked path straight
    Your Son sent to bare our burdens
    We lift up Your Holy name Lord
    You make these torn, dry, bones new

    The weight of this cruel world breaks our spines in two
    with a mighty crack
    We cry and beg for You great Lord to just
    please take it all back

    You make the crooked path straight
    Your Son sent to bare our burdens
    We lift up your Holy name Lord
    You make these torn, dry, bones new

    The chaos of this world
    Blasphemies against the one true God
    The souls are wearing thin
    As we feel our own minds bend
    But the true love of eternity
    Is In Your word forever clear
    Through Your great love we will follow You
    Because You shared Your light with us

    You make the crooked path straight
    Your Son sent to bare our burdens
    We lift up your Holy name Lord
    You make these torn, dry, bones new

    Mere Symbols

    We must not cling to a symbol
    Our hope can not rest in steel or wood
    We cling to the One who made us
    Having faith, trusting in His truth and mercy

    We don't need these "Christian" symbols
    To help us worship and pray
    We just look inside to see
    What is truly there upon the throne of our hearts

    Our crosses and our jewelry
    With our Christian flags
    They're only reminders of who we
    Truly praise and worship in His glory up on high

    We look at where our hope lies
    It's not with something in our hands
    Or something that we place around our necks
    We don't show our faith through trinkets

    We focus on You
    We live for You

    We must not cling to a symbol
    Our hope can not rest in steel or wood
    We cling to the One who made us
    Having faith, trusting in his truth and mercy

    We focus on You
    We live for You

    We must not cling to a symbol
    Our hope can not rest in steel or wood
    We cling to the One who made us
    Having faith, trusting in his truth and mercy

    In Christ Alone

    In Christ alone my hope is found
    He is my light, my strength, my song
    This Cornerstone, this solid ground
    Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
    What heights of love, what depths of peace
    When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
    My Comforter, my All in All
    Here in the love of Christ I stand

    In Christ alone, who took on flesh
    Fullness of God in helpless babe
    This gift of love and righteousness
    Scorned by the ones He came to save
    'Til on that cross as Jesus died
    The wrath of God was satisfied
    For every sin on Him was laid
    Here in the death of Christ I live, I live

    There in the ground His body lay
    Light of the world by darkness slain
    Then bursting forth in glorious Day
    Up from the grave He rose again
    And as He stands in victory
    Sin's curse has lost its grip on me
    For I am His and He is mine
    Bought with the precious blood of Christ

    No guilt in life, no fear in death
    This is the power of Christ in me
    From life's first cry to final breath
    Jesus commands my destiny
    No power of hell, no scheme of man
    Can ever pluck me from His hand
    Till He returns or calls me home
    Here in the power of Christ I'll stand

    I will stand
    I will stand, all other ground is sinking sand
    All other ground, all other ground
    Is sinking sand, is sinking sand
    So I'll stand

    Amazing Grace

    Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
    That saved a wretch like me
    I once was lost but now am found,
    Was blind, but now, I see

    T'was Grace that taught
    my heart to fear
    And Grace, my fears relieved
    How precious did that Grace appear
    the hour I first believed

    Through many dangers, toils and snares
    we have already come
    T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far
    and Grace will lead us home

    The Lord has promised good to me
    His word my hope secures
    He will my shield and portion be
    as long as life endures

    When we've been here ten thousand years
    bright shining as the sun
    We've no less days to sing God's praise
    then when we've first begun

    Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
    That saved a wretch like me
    I once was lost but now am found,
    Was blind, but now, I see

    Leave It There

    Leave it there, leave it there,
    Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
    If you trust and never doubt, He will surely bring you out.
    Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

    If the world from you withhold of its silver and its gold,
    And you have to get along with meager fare,
    Just remember, in His Word, how He feeds the little bird;
    Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

    Leave it there, leave it there,
    Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
    If you trust and never doubt, He will surely bring you out.
    Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

    If your body suffers pain and your health you can’t regain,
    And your soul is almost sinking in despair,
    Jesus knows the pain you feel, He can save and He can heal;
    Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

    Leave it there, leave it there,
    Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
    If you trust and never doubt, He will surely bring you out.
    Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

    When your enemies assail and your heart begins to fail,
    Don’t forget that God in Heaven answers prayer;
    He will make a way for you and will lead you safely through.
    Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

    Leave it there, leave it there,
    Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
    If you trust and never doubt, He will surely bring you out.
    Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

    When your youthful days are gone and old age is stealing on,
    And your body bends beneath the weight of care;
    He will never leave you then, He’ll go with you to the end.
    Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

    Leave it there, leave it there,
    Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
    If you trust and never doubt, He will surely bring you out.
    Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
