about

"Based on the classic Norwegian Black Metal. Somewhere between
Burzum, Immortal and Darkthrone MINNERIKET combines epic
guitar and synth moments with cold, raging passages"
- Legacy Magazine

"The atmosphere herein created is indescribably profound and dark.This is probably one of the most dark albums I have heard in a long time, for the sake of the desolation that it creates in my mind. Not a living thing in sight, just the darkness, as I walk through corridors of bleakness watching my back at every turn.The epitome of Ambient/Black Metal"
- Absit-Omen Webzine

"Minneriket creates another recording that remains true to the raw and atmospheric style of ambient black metal from their previous release [...] In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Minneriket and if you are a fan of ambient black metal, you should check out this album."
8/10
- OccultBlackMetalZine

"Che volere di più nel 2016? Nostalgico."
8/10.

Track Name: A Faustian Manifesto
The Pentagram
the sign of our war
a force of nature

I chose my side lifetimes ago
forged in my own blood
driven by a thirst for knowledge
guided by the pentagram

I’ve got a place in Hell
with Satan as my right hand
and I pray for war to the pentagram

Driven to the extreme
feeding of hatred from the ground
Inspecting the mirror
picking up broken shards
creating the pentagram

That’s the way your life will be
with a sworn allegiance to the pentagram
I chose this way, this force of nature, the pentagram
Track Name: Vinterblot
Hljóðs bið ek allar
helgar kindir,
meiri ok minni
mögu Heimdallar

Ek man jötna
ár um borna,
þá er forðum
mik fœdda höfðu

Til Odin for seier og makt
til árs ok friðar
til vorder og vetter
til gamle kjente

Fra volver, fra markens grøde
fra kosmos, fra Jord og Hav
fra Ymes blod, Jotunskalle

Gifu, et offer til meg sjæl
brennende ønske om Líf og Lífþrase

Gjømt i holtet, finner ingen tavle
ved Yggdrasill, den gamle ask
det skjelver i løvet
Track Name: ...Of Storms and Sorrows
A desolate planet cleansed of the human disease
this has become my dream
I travel to worlds unknown
only to find myself staring back into the same old reflection

I cry for the loss of humanity
the stars will witness my rebirth

I paint beautiful pictures in my mind
paintings of all the wonders of the world
where mankind is nothing but dust upon the gound
Track Name: Jærtegn
Østenfor sol, og vestenfor måne
veien gjennom berget, bak tid og rom

Dype remmer i rødt og svart
for hælvete, setter hardt mot hardt
nå ser jeg skauen i månelys
gir etter for natta i kuldegys

Nåde for rett, mot vest, mot vest!
drømmetale, nakendans

Ville vetter og knokkelsang
forkulla lik og galgemann
ormer gnager, stormer raser

Fanfarer, fakler i Norges land
gamle guder, tro og sagn
Yggdrasill, Vile og Ve!
Track Name: Totemkriger
Torner og glemte guder
tanker vekkes til live
svarte sjeler, fremmed blod

Sanger om nordisk magi
galdre, arvet av Valfar
lange netter, iskaldt mørke

Jeg står under mørk himmel
ensom, men ikke aleine
omgitt av vorder og vetter
skogens liv, skogens sjel

Runer og flammer
jeg blir svar skyldig i natt
tornekrans
Track Name: How to Write Love in the Stars
I’m the true force of darkness
I’m the true force of light
I’m the voice inside your head
I’m the whisper in the night

Where do we go when even stars burn out?
Where can we go when even stars burn out?
Reconcile your blood with virtue
Look towards the other past
