Burn, Antares – scorpion heart – Kalb al-Akrab
Rise! Scintillating bloodlight heart – tendit ad rapinam
Flashing orange, flashing red – Per sepulchral regionum
Orion’s slayer, presiding over arms – Insidiata – The Lurking One

A fire that burns in the head and heart, fearful arc across the southern sky
A creature that treads the skyline and winter home for the Lord of Worlds
Exalted to the sky by the gods, and terror to the hunter
A dark summer nocturne – equal to its god

Sidus Martis

Creating an ardor for war, Shaula and Lesath – Quantus tremor
The old crowned serpent and basilisk capricious – Solvet saeclum in favilla
The terror of Phaethon – rutilans – Per sepulchral regionum
Melt cold shadows – carry warfare forward…burning orange, burning red

The flaming rays of the scorpion’s heart – the only rival of Mars
Celebrated in the palace of Sennacherib, red as the blood of his destruction
A Lance Star which forever chases west at the feet of Ophiuchus
Fleeing the rising sun to opposition - and chase it again as it sets

Sidus Martis

Now all the horrors of the heavens he spies
And monstrous shadows of prodigious size
That, deck’d with stars, lie scattered o’er the skies
In tail and arms surrounds a vast night

Sidus Martis

The band released four online-only 'best of' EPs during 2018 and 2019, and unleashed 'By the Light of Their Destruction' in May 2019. The feral and unrelenting 'In Darkness at Last' followed in September 2022. ... more
