about

BLEEDING RAVEN Toronto, Ontario

An experiment initiated by Dean Mason of "Gnostic Gorilla" to explore a more abrasive/aggortech type project. Some of the tracks could be called doom-tech while others almost have a trance feel with some noisecore sentiments here and there. Yeah, it's very noisy and almost disturbing. That was the plan. ... more

Track Name: DARKNESS CONSUMED
DARKNESS CONSUMED

Mind’s eye lies
And evil old spies
The sun isn’t setting
The veterans forgetting
An ocean between us
All time evaporates
…despair

R/ The Dawn Cries
A Vision Dies
Consumed in Sorrow
The Moon is hollow

Barbwire memories, shatter the will
A prophet named ‘Daniel’, the ‘viper’ he’ll kill
Temples are ruined, old mystic is shunned
Prayer for a warrior, weep for a ‘Son’
Caravan of pilgrims, storm takes the day
Plight of the hopeless, for madness they pray
Tomorrow is fading, we all lost the way

R/

A humble maiden, the ‘world’ she ‘assumes’
The warning of angels, all darkness consumed
An evil ruler, a child he would kill
So many innocents, their blood was spilled
From the desert, a voice in the night
The earth is ‘moving’, they saw a great Light
The dawn is weeping, the death of the night…
Track Name: PONTIFF'S NIGHTMARE
PONTIFF’S NIGHTMARE

The earth is fractured
The moon is falling
Old ‘wolf-man’ is captured
The Cardinal’s calling
Clare is weeping
Poor fool leaves the city
Rich men are feasting
For the lost- “no pity”
Where’s Brother Sun?
Behold Sister Moon.

A Pontiff’s Nightmare
The crowd has no face
All noblemen beware
The blood they will taste
The forest is crying
A dying man waits
The old ‘king’ is lying
The lowly are great
A dream for the lonely
A dirge for a beast

Poverello

Marks in the hands
Blood in the side
A fractured old man
With something to hide
The night doves are praying
Royal Wolf and his pack
Mother Earth they’re slaying
The ‘Dawn’ they attack
Weep, Brother Sun
Mourn, Sister Moon
Track Name: BLOOD OF MYSTICS
Blood of Mystics

Face on fire, no soul
Heart of stone, no life
Blessed madness takes hold

The blood of mystics, mystery has died
Memories of UR, Patriarchs and lies
Shame destroys a town, lion’s den is cold
Fate is ever blind, stories for the old
Visions of an Empire, a nation in flames
Deceitful old men, embrace the blood games
Prayer for the wounded, innocence betrayed

An old prophet seeks, new hope for the dawn
Silence consumes them, a saviour is gone
Cold tomb for a king, the night shows its face
Traitors are hiding, as they fall from grace
The place of the skull, the darkness will fall

Face on fire, no soul
Heart of stone, no life
Blessed madness takes hold
Track Name: SHADOW REVELATION
SHADOW REVELATION

“Behold”

Cry of a dying horseman
The shadows reveal a lie
Night porter fears an omen
“…there’s nothing, it’s in the mind…”
Inmates from sorrow flee
(Such suffering, so often seen)

Daniel is out of time
Traitor will feast on crime
The shipyard is on fire
For saints they build a pyre
The air is filled with rage
A lion fears a sage

Behold

Where is this love of God…
…when deception they all applaud?
The fall of some master race
A chapter ends in disgrace
Not willing to face the crowd
A wise man wears a shroud
It’s never about a ‘mission’
Instead, behold a vision

Behold
Track Name: SALEM VIGIL
SALEM VIGIL

Judgement day comes
Find the ‘witches’
“Justice spares none”
Self-righteous bitches
Purple heart glows
The Master knows

The dawn is far…

Salem vigil—purify souls
Innocence lost—stories untold
Blood of martyrs—voice of angels
Old dream shattered—selling fables


The dawn is far…

Salem vigil—bloodthirsty fools
Praying for death—“slaughter the mule”
Weeping ‘harlots’—insane vicar
A legend born—a village scorned
Track Name: THE CRY OF SIMEON
THE CRY OF SIMEON

Time bleeds into oblivion
“Mother, behold your son…”
Hatred dies on a tree
Hear the cry of Simeon

Slave or free?
Visions obscene
Jacob has lied
A nation dies
Beggars and Queens
Nothing is clean

Chorus:
What is your sign?
Cancel all mimes
Master of Dreams
Suffering unseen
Where is the mind?
Horrors we find
