    Spirit in Flames is a work of underground dark heathen metal for fans of Primoridial, Isengard, and Bathory! When Bitter Spring Sleeps has returned to its black metal roots yet retained the solid clean vocal style of previous efforts to create a new genre of black heathen metal for the endtimes. Immersive atmosphere with powerful anthems to conjure fire in Pagan and Heathen hearts. Field recordings and nature interludes recorded at between 2013 - 2015.

    CD Digipack version is a deluxe 6-panel foldout edition with all lyrics included.

    The Father of Wolves is dead. But, the Coven he has set free upon the world of man has grown beyond number. Even behind the wall of death, His witchcraft sparks to life in a new Matriarch. A Spirit in Flames to burn away the sins of man and return their hunting grounds to the primordial black forest of old.

Be a martyr or be a soldier the old Earth won’t tell And all those winters you have raised your shield against the wind Her cracking hands her creaking limbs will be shadows across the grave Wet reaching roots in the hollows of the skull And still the cold of the old witch will come again She comes again each November Through the dust and webs of the window Looking out across the field A distant glimpse of ragged robes Lurking at the forest edge A white blindness in her eyes Now scratching at the door Sowing seed or taking life We all bend a simple knee Blessed hearts of bloodied angels Losing sight of sacred wind and falling rain Her Earthen witchcraft summoning Autumn winds She casts her spell Her icy breath upon your neck A shiver rattling through your bones To cast aside the precious warmth of summer Takes your heart in her silvery veil She pulls you in…

Turn your sight and then be gone you've touched the end of the wild There lies nothing for you beyond but the cracking of hungry guns and the plight of all that kneel to the god of stone and steel Rejoin the pack with all you've learned so that we may rise before it all burns Is there a place in fabled heaven for all the beasts you feared? You know that our souls will haunt you in the silence of your years Drain a glass of all your greed to slake your final thirst Know that you have taken more than She can ever give birth Moonrise when you awaken if you awaken at all Steel your heart against the hunter No shining eyes of pride when their blood is on your lips A trade in life for your hunger And thought you cannot feel it falling Soft ash upon thy skin Now at your back a blazing horizon What are you fighting for but freedom with the strength of wolven kind Why, they're only burning your eden

We wait in patient silence We sigh as faith and honor falls We feast upon the grey light We drink her magic blood We howl at sorrow times Beneathe this graven moon We bleed when hate is blind Beneathe this graven moon We burn with coldest flame We rise with strength anew Beneathe this graven moon We know they are watching us Beneathe this graven moon We call our brethren wolves Beneathe this graven moon We hail the moonlit sky Beneathe this graven moon

Crashing onward but forgotten why (They) can't hear the thunder in the distance She's watching over the stumbling blind Preserve the mysteries for her children Praise her howling in the frost-blazed night Shining light from fiery heart Take thy sorrow to the Summerlands to sire the stars through ancient arts Reveal their lies -Strike down in black of night Descend in fire - Cleanse their world with ancient pyre Pounding blood a fiery storm Fur aflame - a symphony - a sunrise Blazing vision of her might Life afire against their steel and fear Crumbling towers lost in time She-wolf magick burns it all away Throwing back her head and howls Untamed wisdom - a spirit in flames Firing blindly with fear and pride They rape the forest for their kindling Her time is coming - ignites inside She cries - a martyr for her Thousand She leads the brethren down the mountainside A trail of flame that none shall tame Matriarchal saviour - a Pagan light Our kin shall rise this blessed night Reveal their lies - Strike down in black of night Descend in fire - Cleanse their world with ancient power Pounding blood - a fiery storm Fur aflame - a symphony - a sunrise Blazing vision of her might Life afire against their steel and fear Crumbling towers lost in time She-wolf magick burns it all away Throwing back her head she howls Untamed wisdom - a spirit in flames

Cresting the mountain I scent the blood Upon the cold wind The aching hunger So many nights Since our father died He spoke the words of power that set us free With fire in our hearts and blood in our eyes We watch the fall of man from the mountainside From the lonely mountainside And from the sunken heart Within the steam and gore Behold mighty raven Bearer of wolven souls to summerlands Ascend to moonlight upon the wings of black Behold mighty raven Bearer of wolven songs To summerlands A feast of fallen antler Our muzzles in blood Our eyes are closed to the thunder of guns The pack descends upon him to silence the night A brother has fallen But the raven doth rise
6.
Eroding wild with the crashing of gods onto shattered ground There is a darkness dawning Only dust remains where moss once grew How long must our hearts bleed? When will our souls be sailing? How long must our hearts bleed? Our raven hearts Our wolven hearts
