Drew Music Fittingly enough, this sounds like the haunted space between Glare of the Sun and Dead to a Dying World, with a good bit of Saturnus or Doom: VS sprinkled in for good measure. Progressive, atmospheric doom of the highest caliber, The Earth is Silent is an immersive and highly enjoyable experience, standout stuff in what's been a standout year for doom as it is. Favorite track: When The Morning Came.

There was a flame somewhere dark A dim light of hope that wished to last    At its end it knew dark is right The fade of existence                     The perspective of a new dawn                Cold fear cries silent tears              Broken hope leaves anger thoughts All the moments I left behind Now come as loss and despair The empty solitude Reminds you that it’s gone Rage against the dying of the light  Just rage tearing you up inside Shattered, gone, holed up in myself Timeless place between flesh and bone At the pain we find the reason An answer to fate The empty solitude Reminds you that it’s gone Rage against the dying of the light Just rage tearing you up inside The empty solitude Has showed me who I am  Rage against all I’ve lost Just rage is what I’ve become

She came to me She stood on the cliff She looked silent and pale Hearing the furious sea Life is just a drop in time The tides and the waves are forever Death moved us away And death brought us together Again She was void of emotions Only regrets She carried my seed And a cold unnamed fear Life is just a drop in time The tides and the waves are forever Death moved us away And death brought us together Again Sad child of despair Growing to a queen She took her last breath And walked into the water She just said my name She just said my name And she became one with the ocean Life is just a drop in time The tides and the waves are forever Death moved us away And death brought us together Again She said my name And she became one with the ocean

The moon shows the calm of the sea A quiet reflection of hope over me The wet cold heals the invisible scars That still bleed inside The crow awaits  For a chance to strike Following the sun desires By a single shot a hunter was hunted  Losing his bright Rising his hand he tried to achieve the sky To join the stars Falling to the oceans depths Facing the roughness of the death A water abyss of void and painless dream Numb my soul Mercy of a Father Reignite a light And let it guide the night By a single shot a hunter was hunted  Losing his bright Rising his hand he tried to achieve the sky To join the stars

When the morning came There was no hope There was no joy When the morning came The sun was white Behind the clouds When the morning came There were no smiles No caring words Everything was lost When the morning came When the morning came Everything was cold Everything was grey When the morning came We were all alone Abandoned and stray When the morning came Mankind left its place In this shattered throne The day after the end When the morning came The Earth is silent Strangely peaceful A heavy calm After the storm Among the grass The winds blow gently The last breath of a dying world When the morning came The ancients took What’s theirs by right When the morning came We embraced fear To guide our steps When the morning came The air was strange Water was sour Everything was lost The day after the end When the morning came

Another day of calm and cold in this ship waiting for a sign of mercy of our god Meanwhile the ice bright like a silver knife Behind the mist I suppose I see something dark A cyclopean stone with many lights like stars I can feel myself drowning I’m still dreaming, I know but i have to go In my soul I feel the void is coming easing my fear and clouding my mind Through Abyss my lord is calling with whispers about the echoes of the past Now I can see the world around me The clarity of knowledge Show me the emptiness of my existence In my soul I feel the void is coming easing my fear and clouding my mind Through Abyss my lord is calling with whispers about the echoes of the past In my soul I feel the void is coming easing my fear and clouding my mind Through Abyss my lord is calling with whispers about the echoes of the past

The rain became the shroud That hide us from the sun Your loss painted that winter morning Like a picture Of white skies and grey lands Of white skies and grey lands No farewell, no last words Only the taste of the wine As I carry your coffin I still hear your voice I lead the black procession I take you to the stone You teach me how to dance To the tune of the vultures If nothing stays forever If all we love just fades away Why should we try, why should we pray To a deaf god of nothingness A cold winter morning feast Clothes of ashes, glasses of sand Then you taught me how to dance To the song of the vultures If nothing stays forever If all we love just fades away Why should we try, why should we pray To a deaf god of nothingness The rain became a shroud A picture Of white skies and grey lands Of white skies and grey lands

about

SUN OF THE DYING is a Spanish Doom/Death Metal band, with its
roots set on 90’s music as My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost or Anathema,
and adding a more modern sound taken from Shape of Despair, Ahab or Swallow the Sun.

SUN OF THE DYING starts in 2013 as a side project between
Casuso and Lavín beside their main bands (Apocynthion and
CrystalMoors). In 2015 the band is completed and they start
recording their first album. After some changes, in 2017 Sun of
The Dying gets a stable line up that remains until today.

In april of that year 'The Roar of the Furious Sea’ is released by
the mexican label Throats Productions, recorded and mixed by
the band members and mastered by Fede Pajaro. Throats Productions
edits the album, the cover is designed by Israel Pato
and the artwork is made by Tumulus and Crafts.

During the next months they do several shows with bands like
Ocelon, ADE, Trono de Sangre, Malammär, Atrexial or Womb.
Sun of the Dying took part in the 2018 Spanish W.O.A Metal
Battle and they reached the finals, surprising with its different
approach to Doom Metal and intense live performance.

Quote:
„Spanish death/doom metallers Sun of the Dying are back with their sophomore album, The Earth Is Silent. A spiritual successor to their debut album, this record follows its footsteps in a more emotional, atmospheric, yet harder way.

In the vein of the british and nordic doom/death metal tradition, and drawing inspiration by classic mythology and the works of Dylan Thomas, H.P. Lovecraft and Cormac McCarthy, the seven songs of this release take the listener on a epic journey through despair and rage, from the thunderous skies to the abyssal depths of the ocean.

With The Earth Is Silent, Sun of the Dying have raised a monument to endings: the end of hope, of love, of life, and of the Earth itself. And in the aftermath, there is only silence.“
