Nero or the Fall of Rome - "Graves Above" (lyric video)

Ο δίσκος των Nero or the Fall of Rome "Beneath the Swaying Fronds of Elysian Fields"
It towers among the clouds
One of the fourteen legends
For long time it has haunted
Your mind and dreams
The attempt at the way
Through the spur

Yet no one has returned
A colossus of millenary rocks
A glacier with a pulseless heart
Baptized in everlasting wintertime
Abode of the ancient gods and the dead
You won’t hear the singing of birds
But the sound of iron that cracks the ice
And the loud noise of wind will stun you
To tear you off the mountainside

Graves Above
Six feet under the starry vault
Graves above the clouds
And the mortals down below
In a coffin with the worms

Impossible may not be forever
But there’s no certainty when you climb through the arms of fate
You won’t have breath enough to sing a song
Not even one final verse
Not even your final words

Graves above
Six feet under the starry vault
Graves above the clouds for those who sleep
On the shoulder of the giant with the gods

Lethargy relieves the frostbites pain
Now blood is freezing in my veins
Through the tears the route is clear
In the slumber of my awakening

Now, at the end, I know where I belong
Now, at the end, I own my fate in my hand
And my grave above
Six feet under the starry vault

“Just the bare bones of a name, all rock and ice and storm and abyss
It makes no attempt to sound human. It is atoms and stars
It has the nakedness of the world before the first man
Or of the cindered planet after the last”
Fosco Maraini, Secret Tibet


Προ διετίας σχηματίσθηκαν στην Ιταλία οι Nero or the Fall of Rome. Μπάντα επικού metal με doom και black στοιχεία, η οποία δηλώνει ως επιρροές συγκροτήματα όπως οι Bathory, Celtic Frost, Cirith Ungol, Hellhammer, Primordial, Satyricon, Darkthrone και μας παρουσιάζεται κάπως έτσι: 

«Nero or the Fall of Rome is an epic metal project with doom / black influences and total old school attitude, featuring members of Riul Doamnei». 

Όλα τα μέλη της μπάντας παίζουν (ή έπαιζαν) ταυτόχρονα και στους symphonic black metallers Riul Doamnei. Στα τέλη του περασμένου Απρίλη κυκλοφόρησε το ντεμπούτο των Nero or the Fall of Rome υπό τον τίτλο "Beneath the Swaying Fronds of Elysian Fields"... 

Δελτίο τύπου: «This song is inspired by the story of Daniele Nardi and Tom Ballard who died in February 2019 on Nanga Parbat, Himalaya, trying to open a new way through the legendary Mummery Spur, more than one hundred years later the first and only one attempt made by Albert Frederick Mummery who lost his life during this trial in 1895. “I am not going to Nanga Parbat but to the Mummery Spur” (Daniele Nardi, 9th January 2019).»
