about

“FINAL RITE” --is Bleeding Raven’s final release. This album is a collection of the EPs released recently, namely, “YAMOZHA” and “LITANY”. The version of “YAMOZHA” used in the album is the second version. From “LITANY”, two tracks are alternative versions. “Litany” and “Ghost of Rasputin” are different versions…with some of the drums and guitars actually completely different. Finally, there are two ‘new’ tracks on this album. New in the sense that they were mere demos that I had in my “unfinished projects file”. So as the “intro” is “Mourning the Dawn” and as the “closing track” the title of the LP, “Final Rite”.

This album was released as a way to formally close the project known as “BLEEDING RAVEN”.

Not to be overly confident but this album is a powerful dark ambient album, with 'Black Metal' elements (without the ideology therefore probably NOT KVLT according to the die-hards) and while this isn't meant for the dance floor...it is a potentially classic album. Take time to listen to this album from beginning to end and you will find yourself transported into another realm.

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: LOST DAUGHTER
LOST DAUGHTER

She was honoured for her beauty
Her soul taken by demonic vultures
The Raven calls her name
A fractured soul, an army’s game

Oh daughter, more beautiful than the Northern Sky
We shall never forget you, for you are many
Track Name: DANCE OF THE WOLVERINE
DANCE OF THE WOLVERINE

Love and truth cannot be destroyed
Deceivers and oppressors take heed
The Light pierces through the dark cold sky
Young and old dance with the fire
Peace for all who doubt
Father Death dances with the dawn
Track Name: GHOST OF RASPUTIN
GHOST OF RASPUTIN

The way of a pilgrim, scent of darkness
A genuine soul trapped in his madness
Northern Guru with a heart full of lust
Hedonism a “way”- for the unjust

Truth has many faces when hate just dies
Cure a suffering prince- or was it a lie?
A Death plot for a wondering ‘Staretz’
A cold Russian night, the ‘Reaper’ regrets
Track Name: DOGRIB
-DOGRIB-

Oh, where come forth thine offspring?
Children born from a fire
Mystical dogs and a Raven’s cry
Young maiden seeks her beloved
A prince from the Northern Shadows

Oh sons, go forth and work the Earth
Wolverine will be your guide
Raven’s wisdom and a purple moon
Oh Mother, we know thy name
Sophia and a scared flame
Track Name: FEAST
FEAST

With their ancestors they celebrate the day
Beyond Golgotha, old death will never stay
Matriarchs pass on their wisdom
Grandchildren peer into a kingdom

Beyond the mask of the finite
A tribe, a people of “Light”
Feast for yesterday’s sorrow
Drink to a new tomorrow
Track Name: CARPATHIAN WOLF
CARPATHIAN WOLF

The scent of malice in the cold night
Travelers racing towards the new light
Decrepit old castles and dark facades
And elder cries out “for the love of God”!

Race towards the dawn
Life or death?
Race towards the dawn
All hope is gone

The night falls—the wolf cries—darkness lies
Track Name: LITANY
LITANY

From all this darkness
Spare us
From all this hate
Spare us
From all deception
Spare us
From sorrow and pain
Spare us
From fear of tomorrow
Spare us
From oppressive maniacs
Spare us
From all that is evil
Save us
