Rivers of the Nether

from by Asphodel



This track is the beginning of everything. It's a turning point when a group of friends that got together to play some covers and have fun decided they were ready to create some quality music of their own. We happily look back on that day.


Lead me to the abominable abode of the dead
Nether, through one thousand needle pain
Acheron, bringer of woe and affliction
I smother life, cold destroyer of the flesh
Waters that carry the tragedy of fate
Dark are they, for dark is demise
Anathema, the grand fall begins

As the boat of Charon is approaching
A shiny lake of tears caught my eye
Cocytus your sour taste, the suffocating lament
Of a million souls

Hate, your name echoes into one's soul
Styx, you're inside evermore
Now that I carry no light and all light is devoured and lost
The anti-queen is by my side, eats all light and dawn
Your name echoes into my soul in endlessness

Pyriphlegethon, your fire is so loud
Where boiling sinful hearts bathe into your wrath
Don't come and poison me
With that toxic drops, I fear thee
Derived from the deepest depths

Fading memory of a burning sun, bright
Your new dawn is my dusk
Farewell to thee, cool breeze of aether in fall
There wont be no fall or rise
Slave of the nether ground
The shiny stars of hope are gone

Take me to the distorted realms of truth and past
Lethe unfurl your veil of nothingness
May in your holy nectar peace I find
Lethe shroud me in your emptiness


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

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
