about

Note: The physical copy of this album also includes a Mylene Farmer cover song, "Tomber 7 fois" which is not available on the digital album.

Coming off the heels of their latest full-length album “Le passage des glaciers”, this fall the Canadian Death-Doom act Norilsk returns with a collection of new material linked in concept with its previous full-length while also showcasing Norilsk’s more collaborative and multi-faceted nature. It retains the band's signature sound developed on its two full-length albums, and brings forward further openness to an array of doom-related influences.

The new mini-album, entitled “Weepers of the Land” is made up of four new compositions as well as a Mylene Farmer cover song (Tomber 7 fois), previously released in Russia on a limited edition compilation CD, and completely remixed. The new compositions include collaborations with other Canadian musicians including Damian Smith (Altars of Grief), Joshua Cayer (Longhouse), Ben Forte (North East Bistro, TGRE), and long-time collaborator Mort Marion (Outrage AD, Blood Moon Knights).

“Weepers of the Land” should be viewed as a companion album to “Le passage des glaciers” as the songs were written and recorded during the same time period. The album will be presented in a 4 panel digipack with artwork from William Blair Bruce (1859-1906) and released worldwide on October 12, 2018.

Track Name: No Sacred Ground
Trails of doom get slowly carved
As we walk the path together
Eternal wandering into the underground
There's no sacred ground for the conquered

The Great Art in exile, cast away
Bones give life to the uncanny
An anonymous graveyard upon which we thrive
There's no burial ground for the living dead

There is no peace for the tormented
No respite before impiety
Blindfolded, forked tongue
Ghosts of today in the desert of tomorrow

Before we forget our names and die alone
We roam the earth and carry our bones
Walking the path, carving the trail
Hooded pilgrims without a sacred ground

Before we part and follow the path
Before these necks are broken
We raise our fist and bang our skulls
The dead walk with us tonight

The hand of doom, the eye of death
The solitude of the candlemass
Eternal, our mission
Hooded pilgrims without a sacred ground
Track Name: The Way
The Eye of Lao-Tsee
If you get too close

I'll send you a coin
I'll spell your doom

Our ways, our own
You will burn

I know you did
I know you will

Once you find the Way
The Way will find you

You know we will
You know we did
Track Name: Toute la noirceur du monde
Les nombreuses guerres du siècle dernier
Triste évolution de la modernité
N’avons-nous rien appris pour la postérité?
Dirigeons-nous hélas vers l’obscurité?

Ignares
Devant la montée du mal
Causalité fatale
Implorez!

Toute la noirceur du monde
Saura-t-elle s’immiscer?
Toute la noirceur du monde
Devra-t-elle décimer?
Toute la noirceur du monde
Pourra-t-elle condamner?
Toute la noirceur du monde
L’humanité

Choisir entre la fin ou le mal
Périr de façon impériale

Toute la noirceur du monde
Toute la noirceur du monde

Qui nous sauvera?
Qui nous sauvera?
Track Name: Weepers of the Land
Into the darkness we have drown
Into the sadness we call home
Hate and sorrow shape the horizon
We are the Weepers of the Land

In the silent night, you disappeared
In the cold distance, painful memories
With empty hands, and blood in my tears,
The choking guilt I have to bear.

Into the darkness we have drown
Into the sadness we call home

In the absence of your light
This hollow form I wear
Bereft of the hope a child brings
Into the empty night I stare

Hopeless in this land we call our own.
Knees in dirt for my failure I atone.
I could not hear your cries, or wipe your tears away.
I could not comfort you
I could not steal your pain

Into the darkness we have drown
Into the sadness we call home
Hate and sorrow shape the horizon
We are the Weepers of the Land

We are the Weepers of the Land (x4)
