Markus Solstrykare An excellent sign of things to come. Thiocryptos has the potential to become one of the leading bands in the epic doom genre and that's no hyperbole. A+ to the lyrics as well.

lyrics

Lyrics:

With crude shallow minds they shall go,
Men of stone enshrined by their woes,
To the gallows of their decline,
Deaf to wisdom, blind to the signs.

When gold tyrants fail to oppress,
Though their plagues have lain half this world to rest,
Storms will rage, the oceans will roar...
Blue deliverance swallow the shore!

Our Sun is setting.
Through dust red as blood we curse the Moon.
And now a silver Serpent is rising,
The Golden Age begins anew.

Dragon's tail ignites burning skies.
Trembling mountains spew -- mud, death, and ice.
Angels high resounding the horn,
Old Worlds die as new lands are born.

Sons of god and daughters of light
Birth a new race, those of the second sight.
O Deucalion be not afraid,
Sons of Hermes show...yea show thee the Way!

Our Sun is setting.
Through dust red as blood we curse the Moon.
And now a silver Serpent is rising,
The Golden Age begins anew.

Oh, show them the Way!
Oh, show them the Way!
Oh, show them the Way!
Oh, show them the Way!
