Inspired by George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, and the tv series Game of Thrones, in particular the mysterious cult of assassins known as the Faceless Men, who worship Death.
The song was recorded at Mass Audio Studio in Utrecht, NL in May 2016 by Arnout Leene, Marieke Koedijk, and Folkert van Blom. They finished mixing in October. It was mastered by Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios in Ribe, DK in December 2016.
Valar morghulis / death will come for all
No craft, no artifice / can stop the destined pall
Death brings deliverance / mercy to the slave
It restores the balance / no masters in the grave
The faceless men / their names forsaken
a chthonic cult of assassins / devoted to death's transformation
Valar dohaeris / serve the many-faced god
Killing as catharsis / worshipping through blood
Bestow the gift of death / a fatal sacrament
To expel one's breath / is benevolent
Valar morghulis / All men must die
Valar dohaeris / All men must serve
Every death, every cut / every welling of blood
is an act of worship / to Him of Many Faces
Only death can pay for life.
