    "Catchy riffs, beautiful guitar melodies that create a delightfully melancholic atmosphere, and strong vocals...modern heavy metal with a huge chunk of prog and a thrashy edge...you should definitely give 'Return to Damnation' that chance to grow."
    Lords of Metal

    Return to Damnation showcases some of the band's earliest written material; the crucible wherein the band was forged. Dethonator's heaviest and darkest record.

    CD includes 6 page booklet.

Out of the sky there came a sign
Warning of tomorrow
Out of the north the howling cries
Strike the chords of sorrow

Again the hounds are baying
Again the world is greying
Again the stars are fading
We'll take our chances in the fall

Dark days of slaughter
The blood, the horror,
The light has died and robs us of our eyes
We are for the flies

Out of the dark the shadow crawls
Bleeding through the fires
Out of the rain the wordless calls
Haunt the blackened spires

Again the trees are falling
Again the beasts are calling
Again the tombs are breaking
The dead shall walk before the cross

Dark days of slaughter
The blood, the horror,
The light has died and robs us of our eyes
We are for the flies

And though we close our blinds we ever live to hear them
And though we close our minds we ever live to fear them

We're out of time
Now stand in line
Now take your place
As we begin to fade
We can but choose
Which way to lose
We can but try
Or we are for the flies
