about

Reviews:

"...we are treated to a riff fest of gigantic proportions as the hoary music lifts up a tempo into a monolithic sound of pure doom. It’s as if the seat of popular culture has been torn apart and The Munsens are ripping a hole through the fabric." - ECHOES AND DUST

"...side one’s “Slave” is the most decidedly Iommic...but both “Weight of Night” and side two’s 11-minute “The Hunt” boast the root influence as well, though the latter is invariably a standout for its crawling progression, almost Pallbearer-esque." - THE OBELISK

"The growling yet mystical vocals sound like they come from a bottomless abyss, dusty crypt or deep dark pit. The guitars howling and wailing and bass progression that sounds so ominous it should almost be forbidden. Bleak cymbals and crashing toms, hail the coming of something shadowy and evil." - STONER HIVE

"These songs trudge forward with an incredible weight and sense of momentum, it feels almost as if you're trapped under a collapsing building, and with every passing minute you get closer to your death." - TWO GUYS METAL REVIEWS

"...what makes it even better is the group's way with their riffs, loaded with slow-growling doom while keeping the beat rolling along, savoring the sludgy slabs, and cranking up the assault when the time is right." - RIDE WITH THE DEVIL

Track Name: Weight of Night
Weight of Night

In your creation
At the dawn of time
When you sang and swayed
With a beauty, divine

Many ships did pass
And the fires burned
For an evil path
You've always yearned

"Take me higher, set me free”
“Take me higher, Lord set me free"

Mind-bending void
Frozen in time
Has sealed your lips and cloaked your eyes

Greed has brought you here
Our world unraveling, a hopeless sphere

A fool is he
Who cannot see
The snakes are writhing among the grass

Death is always near
Death is always near
Our world unraveling, a hopeless sphere

And in your demise
Though you learned to love
Your indulgence was
Placed always above

Oh, we sacrificed
To have your sins cast off
But to no avail
You will bear your cross

In this evil
You can see no light
You were born to worship
At His right

Satan's child
Our unholy rite
Forever burdened
By the Weight of Night
Track Name: Slave
Slave

We proceed to the mountain
We've come to give you the gold
For we're a desperate people
There's nothing in our bones

We are addicts of lust
Our thirst knows no bounds
We're the beasts of Noon, yes we are
Savage slaves to the crown, yeah!

Our sacred Son
Our sacred rite
Your Holy killer
Out burning bright

Lead us Noonward
Toward cosmic ends
There is no hope
But we'll pretend
Track Name: The Hunt
The Hunt

She has destroyed our souls
This midnight witch hunt grows

Join this clan of spite,
A witch will die tonight

Sharpen your axe
Our final descent at last
Lick your lips
Give her just one last kiss

We’ve got the witch
The High is ours
We’ve got the witch
