about

"The Ghost Album" marks another great chapter in Wyrd's somewhat surprisingly underground career.

Wyrd is old news for most ambient/folk black metal fans, so there's no need for introduction other than saying this band has held a very strong and unique style for quite a few albums. Minimalistic and extreme at times, but melodic and ambient most of the times. One of the best Sons Of Burzum out there. The bands style has been growing and evolving over the last several years. And this album is no exception to that. The changes continue and develop in the shape of an almost completely new style. With a very noticeable and new doom influence and with marked rock-inspired riffs, this new style is at times reminiscent of early works but also at times reminds me of more recent Drudkh, or even Swallow the Sun.
This is a very doom-death influenced album and is yet another fine chapter in the tale of Wyrd.

Track Name: My Ghost
The doors are locked
And curtains drawn
But there is nowhere to hide
From the demons that dwell inside
Always fear the nightfall
Yet the dawn never brings solace
I throw another log into the fire
But can't seem to keep the cold outside

Where ever my path may lead
My ghosts will always follow me
Trapped in the darkness of my mind
Never more than two steps behind

The darkness is closing in
Shadows seem to dim
The flame flickers once and dies
The coldness creeps inside
Life will never be the same again
The old days will never return
So I'll just keep walking on
And never return

Where ever my path may lead
My ghosts will always follow me
Trapped in the darkness of my mind
Never more than two steps behind
Track Name: Daughter Of The Forest
Daughter of the forest
With a pine garland on her head
Binded from twigs and thorns
Unsightly, yet radiant
Beloved of the woods

Daughter of the forest
With mud and soil on her face
But no amount of dirt hide her grace
Once revered, now alone
Relic from the olden days

Her altar was built from the sighs of gods
Covered in wild roses, ash and thorns
Look into the fire and you'll still see her shape
Dancing wildly, winding like a snake

Daughter of the forest
Beloved of the woods
No one calls her name anymore
No one stares into the flames anymore
Forever lost are the olden ways
Track Name: They
Things are different at night
They are waiting just out of sight
Faces in the window of an empty house
Whispers echoing through silent halls

Alone
Never alone
Alone
Never again
Alone
They'll never leave me
Alone
They'll never let me be

Things are different at night
They are waiting outside the light
Reflection in the mirror. Not mine
Thoughts inside my head. Not mine
Track Name: Daylight Dies
When the winter nights grow longer
And the days have no returnings
When the long nights shimmer whitely
Over the icy wastes and woods
When the northern winds grow colder
And the days of man come to an end
When the stars flicker one last time
And then die

Losing tomorrow
Forgetting yesterday
Daylight dies
And life withers away

When my mind finally betrays me
And all my nightmares become reality
When They finally reach me
I'll be together with her again
Daughter of the forest
Together we'll sway and dance
On these unhallowed marchlands
For all eternity

Losing tomorrow
Forgetting yesterday
Daylight dies
And life withers away

Lose a life
Gain eternity
Daylight dies
And death devours me
Track Name: Dark Water
Fall upon the dark waters
Floating down the coal-black currents
Through cataracts and rapids
To the tombs of Tuonela

How to bear the stings of serpents,
Tortures of the reed of waters,
How to bear the stings of serpents,
From the streams of Tuonela

To the blackest of all streams
To the waters of Tuoni
To the falls of the deathland
To the waters of Tuoni

Fall upon the waters
Floating down the coal-black current,
Through the cataracts and rapids
To the tombs of Tuonela.

How to bear the stings of serpents,
Tortures of the reed of waters,
How to bear the stings of serpents,
From the stream of Tuonela

From the death-stream a serpent,
From the water a dream
She is forever gone, forgotten
My torment is all that remains
