Hail the spring After winter’s cold decay Crowned a king Born to help us find the way The Way Help us find The Way We’ll find The Way “The gods demand subservience! The gods call for sacrifice!”
2.
We saw the vile corruption The bodies scorched with fire We offered absolution The smoke obscured the sky It’s on again We faced annihilation We chose to stand and fight We set upon the fortress We scaled the highest side It’s on again We’re on the way to find him…
3.
Heard about a king Dragged him from the throne They took his face away Left him by the road Scavenger wake Peckin’ at remains Cross over Spiritus sanguinis Archdiocese of Worms We’ve come to take you away Come to take you home
4.
Far away Windswept dunes Fall from grace Mortal form Pulled astray Past the mind’s eye Saw the warning Hope’s eternal end Pushing through the veil Reach to find it Colors of it all Spirit fades away
5.
Mystics high Up upon the ridge World on fire Gods descend Howling Washed of sin Come before the wolf Hallucinate Walk above it all Dream awake Darkness calls Fallen Once lost Cut off from the world Summoning complete Dawning of the day Shepherds on the roadside Trouble on the way In the wind
6.
Enveloped by nebulous shadow of sin Flame and avarice spat from a serpentine tongue Now lost to the endless dunescape of bonedust and dark Allow these whispers, these incantations To usher this dying ember back from The Deep Back to the world of men
7.
Once trapped in isolation He arose with the key All around, the blackened sand He cast his doubt to the sea The reign His reign The reign Returns The Broken Crown The desert floor The rolling heat The Broken Crown The desert runes Foretold the king The Broken Crown Comes around Subjugates the false The Broken Crown Come around Burden and the cost The Broken Crown The seven clans Witness to the fall The Broken Crown A shattered land The Faceless King, he calls

about

Captivating Californian foursome Vitskär Süden returns after their acclaimed 2020 self-titled debut with brand new full-length "The Faceless King," a fascinating 7-track collection of mystique-laden rock spells. Weaving progressive rock, heavy psychedelic and gothic folk into towering and intensely beautiful soundscapes enhanced by deep-toned, commanding vocals, Vitskär Süden explores the rock world's eerie fringes, meeting at the crossroads of Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Wovenhand, Lord Vicar and Jaye Jayle.

about

Vitskär Süden Los Angeles, California

“Gorgeous and sinister. Shoots images into my brain of blacklight posters of secret rites in lost, desecrated valleys performed while some bastard '70s metal band croons a sword & sorcery drug rock accompaniment naming, song-by-song, a terrible thing that should remain nameless.”

—Laird Barron, author of The Imago Sequence and Other Stories
