    About "Sun Dethroned":

    "Sun Dethroned is a conceptual work that deals with a two-sided personification of the human condition, in the form of two romantically involved main characters that simbolize the abstract concepts of “good” and “evil”: Lenore and God of Nothingness, the latter represented in the album cover.

    Throughout this piece a story is told of which the most important events are the death of Lenore (“good”), that lead God of Nothingness (“evil”) towards a spiralling descent into wrath and madness, eventually consuming all reality, including himself, finally abandoning his pitiful existence in a sea of regrets where, in essence, he mourns his lost love and mourns the innocence of his madness.

    In short, Sun Dethroned functions as a parabola that highlights the need for balance while firmly stating the cost of its absence."

about

"Upon Your Ashes" is the new and third single extracted from Moonshade's debut album "Sun Dethroned" (Art gates Records, 2018)

lyrics

With ashes in my mouth, I grieve
The stigmata of loss, it reaves
A soul lacking traits of humanity

Such hecatomb without resemblance
Awakens a thirst for vengeance
For the anathema that befell me

Engulf the world
In unforgiving flames

I dream of rivers of blood in a never-ending fire
This cataclysmic wrath will shatter the earth under thee
Unearthing our nature as slaves of desire
A cross to bear in all its unholy profanity

Stripped of the fabled veil of wonder
That blinds the face of all mankind
Finding solace in my insanity

Of love and loss I knew enough
As all bliss hastily turned to dust
All meaning lost through life’s opacity

All this hatred
Living within

I dream of rivers of blood in a never-ending fire
This cataclysmic wrath will shatter the earth under thee
Unearthing our nature as slaves of desire
A cross to bear in all its unholy profanity

A curse upon thee
Corrupt child of Man
For this is the day
We will come to end

All this hatred
Living within
Will trigger the coming
Of wages of sin

A new world so begins

Apocalypse dawns from the depths of despair
For an accursed race, condemned to decadence
A beast awakened, in darkness I dwell
Bleeding through the gashes in my innocence

Ephemerality flooded by suffering
Cleansed in an odious instance
