Dread Reaver

by Abbath

supported by
Metallurgical Fire
Metallurgical Fire thumbnail
Metallurgical Fire The production finally matches the power of the music on Abbath’s third album. Ukri’s drums especially sound better than ever. As usual the riffs keep coming and the lead work is solid. Nothing to complain about on this beast. Good covers, too. Favorite track: Dream Cull.

v33m In the world of metal Abbath is a brand you can trust. Whether it's his raw black metal past or more recent (let's say speed metal) musical approach, Abbath rules! Dread Reaver is an album where both genres collide and the results are great. Most of the songs are the best Abbath has made so far and the cover of Metallica's Trapped Under Ice is outstanding. Favorite track: Acid Haze.

Barnesy Abbath was obviously the real mastermind behind Immortal. Favorite track: Dream Cull.

Acid Haze 04:51
ABBATH ACID HAZE LYRICS In Hattusa’s ‘lithic ruin In the tombs beneath Lagash In the bowels of sunken ziggurats Lost worlds carve me like a lash Hear lost echoes howl, spirits of the Pyre Martyrs of the dusk, dawn saw them fry Detritus coats their bloodstained shrines Chaos haunts the vale. Order unwinds Singe an Acid Haze Thresher carve the grain Singe an Acid Haze Thresher spear the skein Heed, scratches in the clay, scrape arcane cuneiform Tablets baked in blood, a past left forlorn Annihilate the scribes but voices live forever In shattered Hall of Records time cannot sever Singe an Acid Haze Thresher dog the bane Singe an Acid Haze Pleasure welcome pain Thresher sow the plague Reap the burning glade Singe an Acid Haze Thresher carve the grain Singe an Acid Haze Thresher spear the skein Singe an Acid Haze Thresher dog the bane Singe an Acid Haze Pleasure welcome pain

Scarred Core 03:29
ABBATH - SCARRED CORE LYRICS Too fierce for the flares of hell Too tempestuous for the swell Too bloody for the leech Too brazen for the breech Too sharp-edged for the razor Too bright for stellar gazer Too sentient for the brain Too hungry to be tamed Too succulent a tongue to taste Too potent-bred to be chaste Tumescent tied to dying root Tumult tends to overshoot Tenacity smashed will inculcate Tomorrows torn from loop of Fate To lose is not the end of war Tis but the dawn we hunger for Too toxic for the viper’s fang No noose too tight, condemned to hang Catch sabre tooth by the tail Too committed to fail Built from scar of every flaw Cut from shard fragmenting core Standard raised we march on high Too rock’n’roll to die
3.
Dream Cull 04:15
ABBATH- DREAM CULL LYRICS On blistered screen of pockmarked veil torn from face of lonely grail I recall visage that drew a smile on Rorschach blot begrimed in bile Tapped from tumors tucked in gut, marred malign and keened corrupt The ink that seared a ragged leer split pallid skull yet lent no cheer This winters eve where stormwinds cleave outside our creaking walls We clasp the chains that anchor us to monolithic halls All within the weal of spine arrive here lost in wound of mind For what’s another fraught traveler fragmenting frayed unraveler? In crooked realm of twisted hell So bid the specter enter! This winters eve where stormwinds cleave outside our creaking walls We clasp the chains that anchor us to monolithic halls Incise thy name. Bow heads in shame. Let the nightmares die. Split in twain - then again! Splinter in a mote’s eye I dream cull! I dream cull!
4.
Myrmidon 04:33
ABBATH- MYRMIDON LYRICS I stake my grail through gut of foe Embed my flail, watch skull explode Shield-rim smash teeth from maw One fell slash cleaves hanging jaw Skid in entrails, dispatch the knave Commit culled scum to open grave Die with a smile, stare glassy-eyed up At boiling skies! Valkyries descend to gore-caked fen Fallen warriors arise! Carry me out upon my shield In soil stained red of blood congealed Fall on our swords before we yield Bury my corpse on the battlefield Demonize to foulest distance Follow trench of most resistance Hack a trail through intellect Twist in pith so introspect Choice splinter us asunder Beyond rolls endless tundra Carry me out upon my shield In soil stained red of blood congealed Fall on our swords before we yield Bury my corpse on the battlefield Hoplites assemble. Don thy bronze Grip aspes in phalanx of Myrmidon Spirits torched as afterthought Honor stained Loyalties bought Free to seep betwixt the cracks Insert the fuse my Animus lacks Reinvent nightmares we forget At the crossroads of our one regret Deep in gallows’ shadow All paths dissect! Etched in cryptic vistas Fate will stroke each strand erect, Direct artistic fistulas through bowels of pure neglect. At intersect of nexus, hub of angst connects Traumas forged to vex us, demon spawn reflect. Spread wings so wide membranes stretch, lend flight to lowly wretch. Rogue ascend from carnal crèche unfurled of livid flesh. Reap the ruin we inseminate. Create a vice to violate. We bask in shade of writhing flame. Flay our souls in scaulding shame.

ABBATH- THE DEEP UNBOUND LYRICS Death winds’ breath blisters septic hide Chaos reigns in shadows shifting with the tides Between the suck and surge, jagged rocks are beckoning On crest of dive of breakers, waves will force a reckoning With amnion of human kinds’ mucoid call Utopia lies beyond the cave wall Bound with entrails, seamen drowned, bind the draft we ride So precarious against the shore We lash a craft of sailors drowned Brave the pitch and churn of errant currents Seeking that which must be found Onwards towards the shore Seeking that which must be found Onwards to the shore The Corpse Barque carries our Deep Unbound Encased in scales on Bight of sound The skins of corsairs serve as sails And from our prow a stricken siren wails Where Bastards wrecked were run aground But we, once lost, are now profound A kraken’s limbs will carry us Across the vast hunting range of ancient mariners We lash a craft of sailors drowned Brave the pitch and churn of errant currents Seeking that which must be found Towards the shore with scurvy crew Seeking that which must be found
6.
Septentrion 04:28
ABBATH- SEPTENTRION LYRICS Borne on storm, thrashed cobalt grey Skade’s tongue sears our way Burning path through boiling cloud To burst from melt of molten shroud Arctic Thule whips scalp from skull Septentrion Beneath us merciless ocean heaves Waves claw the scales of Raiders’ beast Serpent wings thrust us high Above the surge that rips the sky Like plough ‘cross charnal field The firmament shall yield Septentrion Septentrion’s northern swarm rides the swell Wolfpack storm our shores A blizzard raised from Hell Seven plagues sever necks Seven gates to sunken wrecks Sevenfold the demon realm Southward bound to overwhelm Septentrion

ABBATH- THE BOOK OF BREATH LYRICS Icon of the ages Make my way with will Favored by the sages Tempered in the furnace Flames fanned by bellows Of a breath infernal. Hammer and anvil Beat impurities from ore Inhale The Book of Breath Melt fissure from core In heap of iron slag Steam shrouds the forge A demon’s face stares back They shall Hear Hell roar! In flush of ember’s afterglow Cauterize our weeping gashes Wash our filth away with ashes Inhale the Book of Breath Vulcan’s craft lend art Burn our blistered palms The forge will melt the dark Scab lungs to fry out spit of spark And We shall sink like lead No inch of flesh left unscarred Distant echoes boiling bellows Scorch ether crisp and charred “We sink like lead No soul unscathed The echo of bellows Forever engraved Our mystic lore will die with us We do as Guild commands” Inhale The Book of Breath Exhale

Dread Reaver 04:43
ABBATH- DREAD REAVER LYRICS Deny sunlight purchase on a Winter soul of ice Brightness withers us, ‘neath Stygian cowl our brethren thrive In gnawing ache of famished shadows Cadavers limp, creak from gallows On a corpse-road lined with makeshift scaffolds In lethal wake of hungry kobolds Dread Reaver cannot aught but rip Compell momentum from the pit Dread Reaver cannot aught but whip Chain from mail and leer from lip We leave a trail of weeping beggars Orphaned brood and grieving widows Gladius of Gehenna fill the foul arena Cleave for all eternity thigh-deep in viscera Dread Reaver cannot aught but rip Compell momentum from the pit Dread Reaver cannot aught but spit In face of Death and yawn of Pit Commit your soul to pyre and brimstone With battle-lust compact in every bone Upon sulphuric sand - you stand Hell’s grim champion, raptor of No Man’s Land Challenge fate let Fury reign supreme Unite in Blood - scum the violent stream Dread Reaver cannot aught but rip Compell momentum from the pit Dread Reaver cannot aught but strip Cuirass from breast and steel from grip Dread Reaver cannot aught but sip The gore his animus thrills to drip

about

Riff-maestro Abbath Doom Occulta cements his place among the metal hierarchy with ‘Dread Reaver’, his third album with eponymous project ABBATH.
His signature blend of blistering speed metal, traditional metal influences, and touch of ice cold black metal creates a sound and style that is distinctly his.
Its spirited, balls-to-the-walls energy certifies ‘Dread Reaver’ as the quintessential anthem for total metal mayhem.
