about

This is the first track on a 2 track split with X Suns.

Lyrically "Tomb of Giants" is inspired by one of the bleakest and most punishing sections of the video game Dark Souls. The player is plunged into complete darkness with only the light of a lantern to help guide the way through the labyrinth.

That area draws parallels to our own struggles and our own sense of vulnerability and hopelessness. No matter how strong or invulnerable someone may appear to be, we all inevitably surrender. "Tomb of Giants" represents what Sól has always been about, the struggle to keep a feeble light lit as long as possible in the overwhelming darkness.

Track Name: Tomb of Giants
Decrepit catacombs made of human bones,
Runes etched in marrow stone,
They speak of anti-matter,
No light shines
Here, the creeping deep.
My burrowed light feeble in its cage.
The light flickers,
Soon dark will feed,
Yet I am beckoned further down.
How I miss the warmth of the sun,
I hold this chalice of abysmal energy,
It's drink coats my throat,
It is a bitter tar.
I am taken.
The tomb consumes.
No reprieve.
No fucking relief.

Pride is torn asunder,
Light devouring domain,
Glory forever plundered,
Lost forever remain.

I lay drawn to fleeting light,
I reach out to grasp nothing,
And fall as many before,
Forever remain in this tomb.
