about

"shEver's Rituals is the best no frills, straightforward Doom Metal album for some time. The Swiss group owe much to the British wave of Death-Doom that spawned Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride and Anathema, but while they demonstrate textural adventurousness via subtle variations of guitar sound and vocal style, they resist the urge to overload their immense, compulsive riffs with Gothic frippery (choirs, keyboards and so forth) and instead take delight in their own corpse-dredging heaviness. These atavistic urges are balanced by their propensity for writing well-constructed, memorable songs, which is something of a lost art in Metal."

Track Name: ritual of chaos
A ritual has been done again
because chaos now needs to reign


Thoughts are left in green
Bewitched of all these
Spirits of long old ages
The trees have survived


Follow us into a witches dream
Follow us into the endless green


An unknown power
Coming from the trees
Much older than
Every human being


A ritual has been done again
because chaos now needs to reign
Follow us into a witches dream
Follow us into the endless green
Track Name: delirio
Sonho ou realidade
Medo ou coragen
Fixão ou sentido

Delirio

Palavras atordoados
Pensamentos descontroladas
Olhos descontrolados
Ouvidos zumbindo permanentemente

Delirio

Vozes na minha cabeça

Delirio

Sonho virando pesadelo

Delirio

Vocé é quem manda!

Fala, grita e berra!

Você não é, porra!
Você não é porra, não!
Track Name: je suis née
Je suis née, sans avoir bu du lait du sein de ma mère.

J’ai vécu avec le sang déramé par mon père.

Sans avoir les yeux, les yeux qui me guident.

J’ai jamais eu les mains, les mains qui me protègent.


Sans ta voix
Sans tes yeux
Sans tes mains


Je suis née sans être voulue

J’ai vécu sans avoir besoin de toi

Sans avoir manqué quelqu’un qui me déteste

J’ai jamais eu envie de te connaitre


Sans ta voix
Sans tes yeux
Sans tes mains

Sans t’amour
Track Name: souls colliding
It’s hard to learn
That in the end
No one stands by my side
I’m waiting alone for the tide

Waiting for something
That will never come
My life is full of madness
I fight my fears alone


But the moon is watching over me
In her light I will drown my sorrows
Can you feel our souls colliding?
And you will fight your fears to follow


The light of the sun shines on
When there’s love, we’re not alone
Track Name: (you are) the mirror
I am only flames, scream and raging thirst
On my body burns the mark of death
Like dark water, fast and unknown
It almost takes away my breath

it takes away my breath


You are the mirror, the rivers are flowing
Over your body, into your mind
Behind this golden shining ground
The dead creatures come back to life

they come back to life


I look into your eyes
Like into eternity
You are the mirror
All I want to see


I am glowing, dying, a falling star
Into the abyss of blue summer moons
You are watching from the sky afar
An eternal sign, protecting your doom

the world’s reflecting in your eyes
the world’s reflecting in your eyes
