lyrics

When I was a kid I used to walk up to the height
And on the hot summer nights just before the storm
I sometimes glimpsed beyond this world into a place not quite our own

(Chorus)
Shimmering lights
Of marvels and sights
Beautiful dreams
From the other side
Strangely real
And eerily bright
The other world dies
In a halestorm of fire

A place with lights and strange machines and towers rising tall
I marveled at these wonders as I dreamt away my youth
But through the rift I saw one day
The other world die

(Chorus)

I have not gone back to this day as it still scares me pale
I still don't know if what I saw will come or if it passed
I pray my children will not think of building towers to the sky
I pray my children will not think of building towers to the sky

(Chorus)

about

Himiltungl Gothenburg, Sweden

Inspired by great bands like Týr, Vintersorg and Woods of Ypres, Himiltungl weaves a haunting mix of death/black metal with folk melodies from the deep forests of Jamtland.

Himiltungl primarily sings in Swedish and Jamtlandic, with lyrics conflictingly revolving around the majesty of nature interspersed with reflections on the terminality of life and death.
