about

Rawk! \m/

Here's some doom metal mixed with a bit of synth and what the hell ever else.

I was setting up drums in preparation for recording last fall with Sista Maj, and before the other guys got there I played this to check levels. Yes, I played drums. I suck at drums. And apparently at setting mic cables, because the floor tom track had something else on it, so it's not there.

Anyway, Valborgsafton was the other day, Walpurgisnacht in German, where they burn bonfires and scare the witches away before the first of May. I always wanted to do death metal about flowers and children, so here you go.

lyrics

Ice melts in the spring
flowers cover everything
birds flying overhead
the sun is ringing in my head
fire burning in the sky
to blue mountain witches fly
preparing all for första maj

children playing in the sand
lovers walking hand in hand
grass is growing so green
covering all things unseen
preparing all for första maj

Ice melts in the spring
flowers cover everything
birds flying overhead
the sun is ringing in my head
fire burning in the sky
to blue mountain witches fly
preparing all for första maj
