Celestial Shade

from by Asphodel



Maybe the perfect introductory track to Asphodel; not our most emotional of melodies, not the catchiest of tunes, but our most balanced piece yet. For metalheads and non-metalheads alike. Celestial Shade was the first Asphodel track to be released to the public.


Behold the burial of the golden god
Where his crown of light is fading away into the shadows of her majesty

Black horses ride the sky
Their gallop marks the birth of night
Roar of the chariot, a trail of dusk
One whose endless glory will eternally last, forever

Drowned in the waters of horizon you ll be
As your rays of vanity vanish along with your lucidity

Black wings and halo of dark mist
Born out of pure massive nihil
Come and become the brightest shadow
On this celestial dome, oh mother of awe

Children of virgin birth unleashed upon the earth
Creatures of primal fear rule and haunt the night in our hearts
Defiling them
From within, cold misery

Mesmerizing sounds of serenity,
And images of sweet oblivion i breathe
Womb nocturnal, brother of mine
Till the dawn arrives, a gentle lullaby
I, the dreamless bearer of doom
Our mother's immortality
Am the pale dancer in starless skies
That the sun shall perpetually deny

Inside this darkness I will lay
And avoid the lucid way
Under a missing sun, silver my queen
Night and dusk I will become
To her beauty I'll succumb
Under a reigning moon, a feeling serene


from Graces of the Fall (demo), released May 20, 2013

Asphodel Patra, Greece

Asphodel is a melodic metal band based in Patras, Greece.

Our personal take on music is one rooted in gothic and black metal with a lot of doom elements and just a taste of classical music. We love powerful emotional melodies and dark or even depressing musical themes. This is the kind of music we work hard to produce. ... more
