from Return to Damnation by Dethonator

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    "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.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Return to Damnation via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

I have been here, always been here
The ghost of mourning every dawn
I've been watching, ever watching
The dust of men has fed my scorn

So hollow, so hollow inside
Tomorrow, tomorrow has died

Dusk and sundown without sleeping
Morning sunrise never heating
Winter mornings ever freezing
Autumn winds forever fleeting

High upon my cross, I'm the lord of loss,
What there never was never shall there be
Look into my face, totem of disgrace
Eyes that never were still see

Seasons changing, leaves are falling,
Now the days are growing dark
Your horizons grow more frightening
Silhouette, the telling mark

All is shadows and dust, ashes and rust
Still we find our own reasoning
Far winding paths that come to their last
In this mortal conditioning
Here in this time we live our minds
Never fearing the end of things
What would you give if you could live
In the darkness forevermore?

Life passing by under one sky
We're still shifting and suffering
Letters in stone and earth covered bones
Monuments to our lingering
Days that go on follow the sun
Never straying, nor wandering
What you be if you could see
That we live in the blink of an eye?

I have been here, always been here
Shades of men are left behind
I've been standing, ever watching
And I remain to curse the time

Dusk and sundown without sleeping
Morning sunrise never heating
Winter mornings ever freezing
Eyes that never were still see
