Iz pepela nastaješ, pepeo postaješ.

Progenies of evil minds Close to death and seen from afar We carry on, the strongest of our kind Mystic signs and endless scars The obscene soul is dying Winter's jaws bite and cut the silence like a knife The holy grail was just a mask The lying prophets die in the night Like your false god's rule and the blinding light of your symbols of might Out of the frozen temples, beneath Mount Hasan The fire keeps on burning, struggle, refuse to die Out of the frozen temples, where dragons rule the sky One by one, knights are moving, chanting for winds to calm We brought down the walls Fighting under the rain of flesh and bone We brought down the walls Defeating the armies of the false
3.
Land of nothing, the sadness of the trees is coming back to life Our shields are nothing against the forces of the Underdark And I will face this evil This nightmare of the living The voice grows in the distance A song of cold, sharpened sword Enlightened by the flames, engraved in my heart Carried by the rains, still burns in my soul Land of nothing, grief hides under the savage cries Our faith is nothing against the whispers of the Underdark But I will face this evil This endless curse of breathing The voice grows in the distance A poem of a warm morning, of hope
4.
I have passed the gates of Hell And darkness followed I have crossed the Seas of Vain Yet darkness followed Into the blindness Born of flesh in the blink of an eye A serpent rises It’s a sin of the inner mind A wounded lion With a flame of beloved young Light hits the ground, blood fills the bowl Enchanted in its might Into the blindness Sick of fear, claimed by lust A serpent rises Carving pain as the venom strikes No healing armor The embrace of the angel’s wrath Light hits the ground, blood fills the bowl Enchanted in its might Bring him back to life A whisper in the night
5.
Carry him through this abyss of time Enchanted in its might Riding a horse as black as death Lashing the devil by its tail False prophets - they, glorious, cry Gazed into the desert’s arms Silenced, lost in time Savaged, spirits are left behind Silenced, they wither and shine Sadly, the winds calm down Divine divinity, bless his sword tonight Hell has reigned, and he is the blight Divine divinity, rule the mindless heart For none can live to see the daylight Crystal silence Night farewells the beauty of light Crystal silence Undying whispers, shadows are left behind
6.
Sunken eyes obscured and bright Upon our sight Under the Moon Leviathan hides A ship soars as midnight strikes Its hull is proud Knows no promise of foolish Paradise Crashing waves, havoc creeps Sinking spell Twice the size of struggling sails Down in cabins, huddled like sheep Blowing winds Weary sailors grit their teeth Once you meet the spiteful waves Their cold embrace You never go back Once you meet the raging depths The cold embrace You never go back After the pain and endless torture Now lies my grave beneath the ocean The shores of home are far and free But the storms of the Adria are calling me

We are the winds of eternal winter We are the reign, the bliss of stars We are the fire, the heat of the sun The breed, dead inside Solitude... Ravens fly... Fire burns... Warriors’ cry Falling through… Mists of time… Darkness reigns… The end is nigh… We, the winds of winter, We, a bliss of stars We are the fire, the heat of the sun The breed, dead inside We are the keepers of ancient secrets, We traveled far within time We are creators, the tides of tyrants We seek the light within the dark Solitude… Ravens fly… Morning tune… Eyes are bright… Light is born… Memories come… Free at last… It is done… Feel the end... Of tragedies Beyond control… Horizons Sense the forces ... It's happening Beyond control... The Sun... Bless the mornings... Of blasphemy Beyond control... Horizons The flaming Sun... It's happening Now (sada) I see (vidim) It all (sve) The past (prošlost) My presence (prisutnost) And future (budućnost) The passage of death (prolaz kroz smrt) The cruelty of life (okovan život) And rebirth (rođenja) Now I see the light (i opet svjetlo) It beckons me home (zove me domu) To live out the life That never was mine Blessed by stars for centuries of life (blagoslov zvijezda za život vječni)

The Embrace 05:10
Cold are faces, The tides of years, Can you hear the mourn, Embrace of mothers, As they weep, the pleasures of the lost Highs and lows, behold the olden shores, Essence of dreams, carved onto the flesh Time waits for no one, shadows drown Beneath the broken bridge Cold are faces, The tides of years Can you hear the pain, The strength of fathers, As they wither, leaves turn to dust Blackened roars of beast, old mystic lore, The endless fears claw into the bone Time waits for no one, mountains rise above the broken bridge If we were born to die, we die together If we were born to live, we live in glory If we are born to be bound, we’re bound together If we were born to dream, we dream forever.

about

Zimogroz were founded at the very beginning of 2018, with the sole purpose to deliver a relentlessly sincere black metal sound. Being from Dubrovnik, the world-famous medieval Croatian town on the southern Adriatic Sea, the outfit's mission is to create music that incorporates aspects of their hometown’s history and culture. The name of the group also references their origins: A "zimogroz" is someone severely affected by cold and winter.

Their debut album "Old Mystic Lore" combines medieval thematics and a classic approach to black metal. Highly energetic sonic clusters enhanced by outstanding vocals lay evidence to the accomplished musicianship of the entire band. Black metal might be their primary weapon of choice, but these skillful practitioners of medieval lore have also incorporated a wide array of other subgenres into their sound, such as atmospheric, death, doom and power metal, all perfectly placed to transmit chosen sentiments and topics.
