about

The advance tracks from this album have been slowly trickling into my email's inbox for two years, and the album is finally here. Simbelmyne's debut release "An Intimate Discourse Regarding Rot and Change" is the work of sole member S. Sfinksen.

Here's a favorite track of ours entitled "The Reflecting Pool." Enjoy.

Track Name: The Reflecting Pool
Dear,
Truly, your agony is lamentable,
Sick,
And bedridden in your state,
Soon,
You shall surely perish,
If,
We don't seek remedy,
I,
Urge you to take my hand,
Come,
Let us seek the oracle

Don't,
Fear for your life,
Paths,
We must now travel,
Great,
Is the wisdom of that sage,
He,
Who gave council for your illness

Therein lies our hope

The elements are strong,
The winds push us back,
Punishing us with every step,
A pale sky, and paler earth,
Blanketed by the bitter cold,
Crawl, opon hands and knees,
Up this insurmountable peak,
Deep, into the black of the woods,
A predator stalking our shadows,
With hope, we tread this bleak course,
With resolution and adversity,
We come upon an alcove in the trees,
Inside, a pool which does not ripple

Look,
Into the Reflecting pool,
Still,
A liquid glass that gleams,
Pain,
Staring back at me,
Worn,
The face that bears my eyes,
Dark,
A cavity in my chest,
My heart,
Putrid in the empty space,
Blood,
Won't wash from my hands,
Come,
Leave this cursed mirror behind
