about

Bound by Entrails Anchorage, Alaska

Bound by Entrails was formed in 2004 in Iowa City, IA. After relocating to Anchorage, AK, the band quickly became Alaska's only regular performing black metal band. After 4+ years, founding member Brett moved to Madison, WI.

Now finishing up their 3rd full length album, the future of the band is bright, yet uncertain as the seasons change yet again.

Track Name: Voices of the Past
I have seen the rising of the damned
Filling the air with their brackish pride.
And I have seen the fall of the gods,
Lifeless idols left as the wake recedes.

Recedes.

Vast decaying and never ending,
Memories serving a fading time.
New worlds rising from desperate efforts,
Ascending for flawlessness.

Resounding softly,
The voices of the past.
Track Name: The Furious Host
I have become prey for the wild hunt.
The solstice sun, I shall never see.

This path, I have traveled for ages.
Moonlit visions glistening in my transgressions.
Gone unseen, but the past has appeared.
In the eyes of the Furious Host I shall proceed.

From the cloak comes fire and demise.
Winds of anguish, ride into the night.
I never knew my deeds would see this time.
Bleeding through with Gungnir in my side.

Overhead, a regard of gloomed intentions.
Battle shredded and voraciously incanting.
Whilst the bloody spume of lust descends.
This horde will carry as their fulfillment.

From the cloak comes fire and demise.
Winds of anguish, ride into the night.
I never knew my deeds would see this time.
Bleeding through with Gungnir in my side.

Realizations were shrouded in the grime.
Dusted meadows, the sight of my decline.
Distant shadows now vying directly.
Winter torment encroaching from above.

Were my deeds so evil as to see,
The midnight ride of the furious host?
Track Name: Seafarer's Journey
Navigating through Scylla and Charybdis
You might find these waters unforgiving.
Navigating through Scylla and Charybdis
You might find these waters a much welcome reprise.

I've tried to live by "in omnibus requiem quaesivi,
Et nusquam inveni nisi in angulo cum libro."
It's the quixotic longing for these turbulent waters
That finds me where I am,
Contented irrevocably.

But forgive this fool hardy sailor
For his mad flirtation with hubris.
He can only damn well hope to meet his next dawn.
MEMENTO MORI!!!

The memory of our seafarer
Will permeate the vastness below
Like the shimmering reverberations
Of strings pulled tight across the ocean floor
MEMENTO MORI!!!

"Vita brevis breviter in brevi finietur,
Mors venit velociter quae neminem veretur,
Omnia mors perimit et nulli miseretur."

Soon our sailor will find
Whiskey won't help to tame
The convulsing waves.
The apportioners have
No hand in this
And the sea,
MEMENTO MORI!!!

"Vita brevis breviter in brevi finietur,
Mors venit velociter quae neminem veretur,
Omnia mors perimit et nulli miseretur."

Navigating through Scylla and Charybdis
You feel disdainfully at home
Navigating through Scylla and Charybdis
At peace with the gale,
At peace with yourself.
Track Name: Under the Midnight Sun
Pale blue silence
Over the winds of time
The breeze wraps its embrace
and speaks to me.
Of this foundation
Of this marvel.

Arise!
This night's disguise,
a pretense unlike your inner self.
Light encrusted and blazing
The darkness seeping through

To the end, I enter from below.
In the end shall I fall.
Although in this mystic dawn.
I know not when to cease.

Arise!
I've seen this all before
as we gathered on the shores
Waiting, breathing with anger.
Our thoughts fueled by the power of light

Confused and eyesore,
we wander aimlessly.
Undiscovered and awaiting demise.
In our travels we have returned to find
That within our lands lies the key.

Arise!
With victory, I am filled with pride.
Filled with ardent vainglory
our final sunrise ahead.

Burning outside, the flames surround
the vestige of an unsung eternity.
Bleeding the blood of our fathers before
fulfilling thier destiny!

And as we dredge on,
we know not what we'll find.
Track Name: Tides of Redemption
I've been witness to the degredation of our land
Through bitter progress we sculpt our own demise
Now, there's nothing left but to carry the burden of our inheritance

I have seen the rising of the damned.
Filling the air with their brackish pride.
And I have seen the fall of the gods.
Lifeless Idols left as the wake recedes.

As the tides of redemption wane
As the grim weight of our fate sets in
The tides of perdition draw near

Vast Decaying and never ending.
Memories serving a fading time.

Keeping an oath is worth praise
And we have failed in our oath to forebear.

New Worlds rising from desperate efforts.
Ascending for flawlessness.

We are bound by the entrails of our myopic greed

The only way that we shall be free is by the trembling of the earth
As it falls into blight
Track Name: Tides of Perdition
Mountainous ravines flow with the tides of perdition
Filling the sights with quixotic caprice

Behold the tides find the world in ruins
The deluge rising against the poison spattered sky

Fortunate enough our fate is sealed
The hall of Brimir waits for me
Sadly i see this through standing fearlessly

The conflagration erupts, we are swallowed by the sea
Mountainous ravines flow with the tides of perdition
Filling the sights with quixotic caprice

Away from the land to be seen over
Fixed in the succession of failure and triumph
The waves shall take me once again
Track Name: Inno A Satana (Emperor Cover)
O' mighty Lord of the Night. Master of beasts. Bringer of awe and derision.
Thou whose spirit lieth upon every act of oppression, hatred and strife.
Thou whose presence dwelleth in every shadow.
Thou who strengthen the power of every quietus.
Thou who sway every plague and storm.
Harkee.

Thou art the Emperor of Darkness.
Thou art the Emperor of Darkness.
Thou art the king of howling wolves.
Thou art the king of howling wolves.
Thou hath the power to force any light in wane.
Sans mercy. Sans compassion
nor will to answer whosoever asketh the why.

Thy path is capricious but yet so wide.
With no such thing as an impediment to strong.

Every time thou consecrate me to another secret of Thine,
I take another step towards Thy Pantheon.

O' mighty Lord of the Night. Master of beasts. Bringer of awe and derision.
Thou whose spirit lieth upon every act of oppression, hatred and strife.
Thou whose presence dwelleth in every shadow.
Thou who strengthen the power of every quietus.
Thou who sway every plague and storm.
Harkee.

Thou art the Emperor of Darkness.
Thou art the Emperor of Darkness.
Thou art the king of howling wolves.
Thou art the king of howling wolves.
Thou hath the power to force any light in wane.
Sans mercy. Sans compassion
nor will to answer whosoever asketh the why.

Forever wilt I bleed for Thee.
Forever wilt I praise Thy dreaded name.
Forever wilt I serve Thee.
Thou shalt shalt forever prevail.

Inno a Satana. Inno a Satana.
Inno a Satana. Inno a Satana.

Inno a Satana.
Track Name: Across the Dead Night Sky (Live)
Ride through the torrential dimness
Obscuring the faces of the slain
Rapidly passing qualms without a second thought
Far above the eye has seen

Blood soaked and torn asunder
Fragrance of victory scattered about
In the cries of the dead night sky
The father waits

Holly laden and distended
The son returns to reclaim his right
Internally apart watching with tribute
Now a dream in the dead night sky

The Norns weep as the ship sets sail
Flames reclaim their right
The father observes, the ashes scattered
Across the Dead Night Sky
