about

New York City's BLACK ANVIL return with As Was, the staggering 50-minute follow-up to 2014's Hail Death. Atmospheric and melodic without relenting on any of the ferocity BLACK ANVIL have always been known for, As Was seamlessly weaves through eight monumental passages of extreme metal art. More diverse, complex, and thought-provoking than anything they've done before, As Was is a stellar representation of modern black metal, and of BLACK ANVIL's continuous progression and songcraft. Featuring cover art by Metastazis (Behemoth, Watain, Morbid Angel) and recorded at Menegroth by Colin Marston (Krallice, Gorguts, Panopticon) with mixing and mastering done by Tore Stjerna at Necromorbus Studio (Tribulation, Funeral Mist, Watain).

Track Name: May Her Wrath Be Just
SHE SPEAKS TO ME
I CAN HEAR HER FAINTLY
SHE WHISPERS SHE SCREAMS
A NAME UNSPOKEN

SHE REACHES THROUGH ME
YET THIS IS NO WARM EMBRACE
SHE WHISPERS I SCREAM
UNLEARN THEIR NAME

O MOTHER
DIE FOR YOUR DIGNITY
WE LISTEN WE LISTEN
THEY SCREAM YOUR NAME

AND WHILE YOUR CHILDREN LIVE
THEY TAKE WHAT’S OURS
AS THINE WOULD GIVE
AT LAST WE CAN ASK NO MORE
SHE’S GIVEN ALL SHE CAN NO MORE

I CAN FEEL HER HEARTBEAT
SHE SUFFERS UNWORTHY
OUR FALL FROM GRACE
SHE TEACHETH ME
WE CAN NEVER LEARN THE WAYS
WE SUFFER UNWORTHY
WE OWN OUR BLAME

O FATHER
DIE FOR HER DIGNITY
WE LISTEN WE LISTEN
THEY SCREAM YOUR NAME

AND WHILE YOUR CHILDREN LIVE
THEY TAKE WHAT’S MINE
AS THINE WOULD GIVE
AT LAST WE CAN ASK NO MORE
SHE’S GIVEN ALL SHE CAN NO MORE

MAY HER WRATH BE JUST
MAY HER JUST BE US
