about

This track is part of the album INITIVM - the 5th album by Doom Metal band Wolf Counsel.

lyrics

Shrouded in shadow
Consumed by grief
Fevered wailing for a life too brief
One figure steps forward
And ignites a flame
One by one others follow
To do the same

Heads bowed in mourning
They approach the hill and the pyre
where many before them have lain
all gathered waiting
for the call loud and shrill
Ignite the flame

Torchbearer
With fire raised
Torchbearer
Set the pyre ablaze
Torchbearer
Don’t turn away
Torchbearer
Ignite the flame

Embers are dying
And ash paints the air
Each flame flickers out
Til’ there’s just one left there
Alone on the hill
In the cold and the rain
Steadfast in his duty
The torchbearer remains

Heads bowed in mourning
They approach the hill and the pyre
where many before them have lain
all gathered waiting
for the call loud and shrill
Ignite the flame

Torchbearer
With fire raised
Torchbearer
Set the pyre ablaze
Torchbearer
Don’t turn away
Torchbearer
Ignite the flame

Heads bowed in mourning
They approach the hill and the pyre
where many before them have lain
all gathered waiting
for the call loud and shrill
Ignite the flame

Torchbearer
With fire raised
Torchbearer
Set the pyre ablaze
Torchbearer
Don’t turn away
Torchbearer
Ignite the flame

WOLF COUNSEL

Originally a brainchild of the 1990s WOLF COUNSEL finally came into existence in 2014 when two veteran musicians merged their enthusiasm for monumental low-tuned music and a great appreciation of heavy riffs into a new band drawing influences from everything that's HEAVY and SLOW. ... more
