Achren Glasgow, UK

Described as 'underground titans' and 'a fearsome live act' by leading UK metal magazines and culturally significant enough for the British Library to archive their work, Achren are a terrifying intrusion into the lives of the ordinary people who encounter them. Achren's music is dominated by jagged riffs, dark melody and overlaid with vocal expressions of destruction and madness. ... more

Track Name: Archangel
Raising flaming sword in anger
Fallen to hate
Fallen from grace
Tesseract of bloody cobwebs
Blood on the ice
Blood on the soil
Behind the darkest veil; broken land rebels
Sun will fail to rise

Engines of carnage grind onward
Grinding in pain
Grinding to filth
Blinding wheels of raging fury
Eyes of the throne
Eyes of the dead
Silent creeping death; sleeping powers wake
Darkness spreads and kills

Blinded in the light
Cold wind death
Assassins cloaked in white

Freezing fatal night
Gunfire rain
Savage Northern blight

Fallen flames
Raise new red flag
Strangled fate
Shadows of iron
Crack the earth
Blackened future
Crushing fist
80 years of global frozen war
Track Name: The Eschatologist
Gathering strength before the hour
Ancient call to end time
Fire in the mind flows into physicality
Fear from the dark flows into your spine
Cold is the future that you fall into
Consumed by terror, you wait for the end
Collapsing world falls into oblivion
Numbering days scratched into your cell

Burning skies
Sightless screams ring out as you die
Falling stars
Moon runs blood and the Sun turns black
Endless walk to the precipice
I will ease you into your death
Final drop to the slab below
Snap your neck and end your world

Terror and pain become existence
Freezing fog destroys hope
Coldness of death is all of the future
Life torn away by the fall and the rope
Sentenced to death by the court of corruption
Nothing is left; the end is complete
Forgotten world wakes into destruction
Unmarked grave in the ashes of life

Nightmare chants call the snake to life
Aphasiac ravens speak in tongues
Appeals for hope, wasted time
Comfort of death, all that's left
Track Name: Suomen Susi
A thousand lakes to drown yourself in
Noble booze is all it takes
Molotov cocktails fed to Soviet Tanks
A Smoking statesman snubbed the Nazi ranks

The barren forest and a defeated Bear,
Now you drink back all of Karjala
Back to the hedge Under the tree of life
To Drink the Koskenkorva and hang until sunrise

Eyes of a wolf,
Chest of a whore
Heart of a snake
To fuck you more
Drink like a fish
No bottletop
Headbanging women
It could be worse

Stealth in the snow
Iron for his eyes
White death for the Red
500 dead
100 days
In the Winter War
Heart of a snake
And kill 5 more

Death from afar
Eyes of a wolf
White death for the Red
Ghost of the frost
Drink like a fish
No bottletop
Headbanging women
It could be worse
