Sky Burial takes the listener on a dark journey through an ancient holy burial practice. The music, in movements, goes through the various phases of the burial process. From Death to Ascension.


High on the outskirts, where life chooses to choke, rather than to breathe.
Ancient holy men survive alongside the grit of nature.
Bare, harsh and unforgiving.
A ritualistic world dictated by ancient belief.
Cleansed from the expected.
Life in itself is a gift to death; death returning it everlasting.

Praise to the vultures, the eager willing few.
O Ancient purifier of bone.
Come forth and bring him passage.
That his soul may return to the sky.
I am the one you will never forget.

Primordial rights dripping from the carcass.
Butchered by holy ways.
Cracking, tearing, struggling.
The filth covers his hands.
The sun strays away from remorse.
Ravage it, to complete it, mutilate to sustain it.
Devouring frenzy stripping all essence of worldly body.

Let the slaughter begin!

I am complete.
I am the sinner.
I am the one you will never forget.
I am the holy.
I am the chosen.
I am the one you shall call upon to.

Lifeless grey contrasted by innards and bile.
The night wants to reclaim its fallen.
Enter the sky, the burial of the monk.
The eyeless stares into the void of eternity.
Flashing remembrance of a life left behind.

No longer restrained by flesh.
Unbreakable, eternal.
A new consecrated life.
The sky unfolds to complete.
The canonization of this holy ascension.
