A song inspired by the legend of the Grail, Irminsul and the tragic conquest of the Saxons by Charlemagne with a ceaseless echo into the modern era as the altars fall silent in the Hyperborean woods, their ghosted presence lingering still, like the old gods.


In the depths
of the wood where the altar once stood
Wind sighs
with the sorrow of the soul
These are days when Sweet is bitter
These are nights when life burns cold
These are times when the curse
is of gold
Turning blood into stone
In the shadow of decline
Flesh the candle to the knife
Thunder calls to the lightning and the sun


from Napoleonic Blues (11 track album), released January 31, 2017
Recorded at Big Sound, Adelaide, Australia. Produced by Richard Leviathan and David Lokan
