Grendel's Sÿster - 'Boar's Tusk Helmet' (official audio)

Pleiades still burning bright,
Aeons away from these hostile shores.
White-crested the waves, creaking of the oars.
Warships land on a sandy beach,
A host of warriors disembarks,
a boar's tusk helmet shines,
amidst the fragrant pines.

Sundered shield and cloven greave,
Emptied quiver, jagged blade,
Gore-encrusted bones strewn across the glade.
"Sluggish streams of murky night",
A new abode for Ares' sons:
The wine-dark sea is gone,
where flaxen wings once shone.

Where lies glory? What is fame?
Who earns all the spoils of war?
Who will find the hoard?
Teeth of man and boar.
Pleiades still burning bright,
Aeons away from these hostile shores.
Who can read these signs
beneath the fragrant pines?

Behold the age-old hill-top fort,
Built to herald and built to thwart,
sacrificial fires light the pyrrhic dance,
to bestow good fortune upon shield and lance.
Battle spells,
valour wells.

Grendel's Sÿster - 'Katabasis into the Abaton'
«A glorious intermingling of epic metal, epic doom, acid folk, folk, folk rock, Krautrock, renaissance fair-styled music and ’70s rock, Germany’s Grendel’s Sÿster may have no identifiable and convenient genre tag, yet on their first studio album, Katabasis into the Abaton, the band weaves a dynamic, potent spell untethered to anything but their own creative whims.»

Κάπως έτσι μας παρουσιάζει η δισκογραφική εταιρεία Cruz del Sur Music τον πρώτο "ολοκληρωμένο" δίσκο των Grendel's Sÿster. Φέρει τον τίτλο "Katabasis into the Abaton / Abstieg in die Traumkammer", περιλαμβάνει εννέα τραγούδια εις... διπλούν (στα Αγγλικά και στα Γερμανικά) και αναμένεται να κυκλοφορήσει την προτελευταία ημέρα του καλοκαιριού.

Οι Grendel's Sÿster σχηματίσθηκαν στην Στουτγκάρδη και έχουν κυκλοφορήσει ένα single ("Night Sea Journey / Sayings of the High One" 2017) και δύο EPs ("Orphic Gold Leaves / Orphische Goldblättchen" 2018, "Myrtle Wreath / Myrtenkranz" 2019)...
