SCÁTHE NA DÉITHE "the dirge of endless mourning" CD
vendetta records # 193


released January 30, 2020

The stories of old Ireland have suffered throughout their long lives. Often misrepresented or misunderstood, the truth often lies not far beneath the murk that hides it.

"The Dirge of Endless Mourning" explores this relationship between the shallow, often twisted portrayal of Irish folklore and the true inspiration behind the tales through figures such as Biddy Early, a wise woman and healer, continually denounced and ostracized by the local clergy as an associate of evil. The forlorn and sorrowful Bean Sídhe, a cursed soul doomed to mourn eternally, widely regarded as a figured to be feared, not pitied. An Cailleach Béara, forgotten by time and people, a once great deity reduced to squalor and despair.

Track Name: The Maligner's Tongue
A warped memory, tarnished simulacrum
Twisted portrayal of opposing vehemence
Mother of fear, Your serpent offspring crawl, From liar’s quill strokes
Their very being blemished by blame
Their very existence reduced to sacrilege
Self-imposed absence, Cold earth above, cold world advancing
A spreading dissonance, adumbration of divine allure
Every drying lake parch and crack the maligner’s tongue
The elements assail, berate
Airless gasps, empty lungs, waterless shores
Incessant pursuit, antithesis of sanguine ambition
The lake of semblant defeat overflowing to shelter and protect
Passing ages are quick to forget, Canvas of memory fouled with hideous effigy
Grotesque utterance, malicious, miraculous
Thinning threads weaving truth through fetid epoch
Patient the water holds steady
The gradual murmur of pallid voices cast into the glare of open minds
Ruined mother of disparaged portrayals
Outstretched grasp through the thinning veil
The morose cloud of twisted morals, Masks of piety
Teaming beneath with the call of wretched words
Bellowing below the murk, Waiting below the silt
Rip the clouds from the sky, Her waters feed this land
