Mavradoxa / Deafest Split

by Mavradoxa | Deafest

And all that we are, all that we are is a silhouette in silent rain And all that we are, all that we are, is a blackbird with wings aflame Within the spectral valley, ‘you and I’ shall ever lay, where our fleeting fire perished in the rushing stream Two hollow trees entwine One’s languid roots then decay I consume the nightshade draught where the sunlight does forsake Dark berries – did the shade impassion? Are ghastly flames no longer tended? Pierced, melted, wilted, smoldering heart of storms. the funeral pyre – your art You are the withering of the leaves Poison the forest and blacken the stream The deafening roar of the falls emanates from your frigid mouth Your spectral valley haunts me. I choke upon the ash, and drown in falls of Zoar, for I am cursed by summer past Red-winged blackbird, your wings aflame Autumn nightshade-secreting lips You are the withering of the leaves Poison the forest and blacken the stream You are the burning hoarfrost cold to blanket the berries – your shade I behold


Mavradoxa and Deafest present a new autumnal themed split album from two sides of North America!

Mavradoxa is an atmospheric black metal band rooted in the Laurentian region of upstate New York. The music of Mavradoxa is expansive, atmospheric, and melancholic. Music made for dreary and rain-soaked days during solitary walks, or in any moment of introspection. Long progressive songs that flow with purpose where the atmosphere dictates and paints vivid stories in its movement and direction.

Mavradoxa's second full-length album "Lethean Lament" was released just a few months ago on Hypnotic Dirge.

Deafest is a project founded by Chase Ambler in Denver, Colorado in 2006. Although Deafest has had additional members at times, Deafest is now once again a one-man project. Since the second full-length, Deafest plays an instrumental ode to the beauty and awe of nature (mostly Colorado nature). Black Metal is the base of the music.

Numerous Deafest albums have been released in their history. Find them on their Bandcamp page for "name-your-price" download.
