lyrics

Centuries of war
Blood has painted these rivers red
Remnants from before
Oceans formed from the tears that we shed
Maelstrom of scorn
Hills and mounds born from the bones of the dead

A pile of smoldering ashes
Swirls of smoke rise to the sky
We say our farewells to this old age
To this dying war

Centuries of war
The strife is coming to an end
Cogs creak and turn
Our thirst for reprisal is finally quenched
Changing new dawn
So long we fought for this day

Chorus

Centuries of war
Tomorrow we will be and know nothing
All that we are
Lie in the palm of these bloodied hands
Legate of truce
I thrust my sword deep in his back
Long live the war

Chorus

All hail the oncoming storm
Long live the war

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.
