about

We proudly present the first single chosen from our upcoming album ‘SACRILEGIOUS’.

Starting from 2017, we created our band concept and theme with the official music video for “The Covenant”, but in the clip wasn’t clear the why and what was going on exactly, so we took the opportunity to make a prequel of our previous work and produce ‘Sacrilegious’.

The story brings us back in 1799, middle Italy, where an elite group of rich and evil people are founding a secret society called ‘The First Order’, they possess an ancient magical book that must be burned for not letting them dictate the socials and morals laws of the future.

A young boy gets caught up in one of their rituals and ‘The Order’ kills him but not before painting some ‘black tears’ on his face as their tradition. His parents and little brother was searching for him and saw the scene, they sworn revenge and decided to create their resistance called ‘The Covenant’ while painting black tears of their newborn as a mark of their hate against them.

The sound of the track is a mix of progressive modern metal with ‘djenty’ elements, huge breakdowns and a technical but melodic guitar solo. The voice changes many times switching in four different techniques. We are really excited to show you all the surprises that this album contains, stay with us and Join The Covenant

lyrics

What we did is sacrilegious
We’ve been fighting against the odds
What we did is sacrilegious
But we had to burn that book
They will give to this world their idols and the illusion of choice
Illusion of choice
Impostors, who will rise and who will fall?
The Order is born

I will give you my life, I will save you all
We’ve been searching for the answers to not lead this world into madness
And I will give you my life, I will save you all
My demise, the sacrifice of one to bring the truth to this world

From the north to the south, from the east to the west
This is where we’ll fight them and keep our promises
We want to free this world
Don’t turn the page, just burn the book
Carrying the torch till the point of no return
This is the light of a new war

And he was running through the night for miles and miles
To bring the truth to the crowd, but they tracked him down
Sewed his eyes and painted black tears on his face from the ashes of fire

You can’t save them, you won’t save them
We’ve been searching for the answers to not lead this world into madness
I will give you my life, I will save you all
My demise, the sacrifice of one to bring the truth to this world

And all I’ve ever loved has been taken away from me
From the ashes of my soul I will change my destiny
I push my throat against your knife cause I’m not afraid to die
You’ll watch me bleed but never see me cry

And here we come
To avenge our brothers and sisters
The fallen ones
Sometimes violence is the only answer

Cursed from the birth
Carrying the weight of the world
Martyrs of doom
Cursed from the birth
Planting the seeds of evil for all humanity
The Order must be stopped from our community

And all I’ve ever loved has been taken away from me
From the ashes of my soul I will change my destiny
I push my throat against your knife cause I’m not afraid to die
You’ll watch me bleed but never see me cry
We are coming

What we did is sacrilegious, we’ve been fighting against the odds
What we did is sacrilegious, but we had to burn that book

You can’t save them, you won’t save them
We’ve been searching for the answers to not lead this world into madness
And I will give you my life, I will save you all
My demise, the sacrifice of one to bring the truth is this world
