about

Promethean Reign – Aftó Eínai Pólemos (Self-Released)

Blackened death metal crew Promethean Reign is the latest band to spawn from the darkest recesses of Oxfordshire, releasing only a few pieces of demo material up until this,
their debut EP ‘Aftó Eínai Pólemos’


‘By the Ashen Light of Dawn’
Opening with a foreboding Emperor-styled synth piece,
Segueing into a feast of slow burning tremolo picked harmonised guitar and double bass drum work.

‘The Great Deceiver’
Demonic harmonised tremolo picking, inexorable down-tuned carnage, squealing guitars and barely contained chaotic drum work, levelling landscapes to smouldering remains as they go.

‘Dead Gods and Excrement’
Whipping up a maelstrom of furious guitars and crashing percussion over embittered vocals, grabbing you by the throat and choking you out for the entire 3 minutes of its run time.

‘Titanomachy’
Creeping slowly into your psyche with Mayhem-styled shimmering cold guitars, which shape shift into writhing, serpentine riffage.

‘Burn’
A rapturous Morbid Angel-esque stomper which is swathed in dark mysticism.

Track Name: The Great Deceiver
Still you stand helpless, cut to the core
Held captive by conflict, lost is the certainty you held before

Death and disease running rampant through the bodies of the young
Sickness breeding desperation, overwhelming everything inside
Malignant thoughts overturn, the mind concedes control

The burden of knowledge is fuel for the fire, infernos that always rage on
Tendrils still grow and diminish the glow, the delicate death of desire

The monster lives, leaving broken minds, and hearts filled with condemnation

Poisoned mind, the great deceiver
Voices cry, tell only lies
Poisoned mind, the non-believer
Terrified, so full of fear

Pressure builds, reverberating this conviction discordant
Stultified, anticipating violent acts erupting from these hands

Poisoned mind, the great deceiver
Voices cry, tell only lies
Poisoned mind, the non-believer
Terrified, so full of fear

Hollow breathing, mirrors screaming, aftermath of rusty skin
Violation, abhorration, fractured, broken, subhuman
Track Name: Dead Gods & Excrement
What is the price of faith
When innocence is lost
Empty thoughts that blossom from
The mind of nothingness

Mundane escapes, dream alive
Smiles died on the broken lips of the brave

The presence, the hollow, the void
The heartfelt, the horror of the empty mind

What is the cost of sentience
The toll we gladly pay
Now just echoes of sentiment
A glamorous despair and decay

Empty eyes falling in upon themselves
To watch the stalking beast they summoned
To walk with them in Hell

The presence, the hollow, the void
The heartfelt, the horror of the empty mind

What is there at the end of this
When everything has failed
Dead gods and excrement
So agony and pain prevails

The presence, the hollow, the void
The heartfelt, the horror of the empty mind
Track Name: Titanomachy
O Father, devourer
A stony silence befalls
A primordial betrayal
Intoxicating, your downfall
Tonight this crimson tide will wash you all away

Armed from a galvanic forge
This is war with the disgorged
Brethren released, we are greater than beast, our strength and our power supreme
Determined we fight, draw on all of our might, to finish this tenacity

We will rise
Titanomachy
We will rise
Titanomachy

A decade of destruction
Through the trembling sky
Recurring history
Overthrow the gods

Deposed, your cause is lost
Imprisoned in Tartarus
Lightning and thunder, chosen weapons of war, for the will that burns as the sun
Trapped in the abyss, banished so far below, eternal incarceration

We will rise
Titanomachy
We will rise
Titanomachy
Track Name: Burn
As you lie there dreaming
Can you hear them screaming
Shifting scents of fires
Build them funeral pyres

As you sleep, there they creep
In the darkness to do wrong
Hear them cackle and cry
Desecrate, violate
All that you held sacred
So they’re condemned to die

Is this what you wanted?
To burn them all alive
BURN

Flesh ablaze, still they pray
For their master to come forth
To unleash his foul power


“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable,
and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters,
and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone:
which is the second death.”
Revelation 21:8

Earth aglow, monsters flow
From the gaping wound below
They consume and devour
Children dead, missing heads
Insides blossomed and bled
Marking this unholy hour

As you lie there dreaming
Can you hear them screaming
Shifting scents of fires
Build them funeral pyres

Burn
Burn
Burn
BURN
