about

Dimholt Burgas, Bulgaria

Dimholt was formed by Woundheir (vocals) and Asen (guitars) in 2003. The band remains a duo until 2005 but then plans change as they start looking for full-time members in order to continue. Soon after that Rumen (guitars) joins the band. A few months later Dimholt finds a full-time bass player, Yavor. In the fall of 2006 they start actual rehearsing with Stanimir who later becomes their drummer. ... more

Track Name: Death Comes First
It’s the last time
I’m closing my eyes
Eternal night
Is now at hand

The sun is cursed
And the sky is rust
And time to reap
The harvest of all my sins is must

The spring of life
Shall find it’s end
But a blessing or curse
Or a relentless scary place

Are the Hollow lands
Of despair and agony
Where my life-sick heart
Shall greet DEVOURING DEATH

Devouring
Death
Comes
First!
Track Name: Into Darker Serenity
Beyond the veil of reasoning and doubt
In mourning dew I stand the pit of agony
Dawn of blessed indifference raises before my eyes
Epitome of mankind’s sleepless slumber

In the cold grip of extinction your testament laid pale
Solitary fall and noxious chants of sacred lunacy
Wounds of voiceless assent engraving the woeful stigma
Abandonment of self dissolves in mist of oblivion

Shall I face alone this ceaseless burden
With weary mind fading in obscurity
Among the damned, all borne by death away
My soul was captive, but refused to be slave

In the cold grip of extinction your testament laid pale
Solitary fall and noxious chants of sacred lunacy
Wounds of voiceless assent engraving the woeful stigma
Abandonment of self dissolves in mist of oblivion
Track Name: Sacrilege
At the end of a life not yet lived
Soul is searching for the new light
From the deepest abyss risen within us
Still we gaze to stars but anguish remains

We sang the burial songs through chaos and eternal night
We sang (the) downfall of mind through words of deceitful wisdom
Reflections of inner emptiness

Blessed by ignorance or ignored by blessing
Redemption through lies, a masterpiece of suffering
Tied in chains of venomous enlightenment
Defaced, oblivious we exist devoted to death

We sang the burial songs through chaos and eternal night
We sang (the) downfall of mind through words of deceitful wisdom
Reflections of inner emptiness

Wretched holiness engraves the scars of fallacy
Erosive psalms of salvation sever the minds (apart)
(We are) kneeling before divinity, remnants of (illusive) faith
(And we are) descending into the pit of abhorrent lie…
Track Name: The Martyr's Congregation
In swollen clouds cleaving the dark sky
A shadow of doubt arose,
Sharp and leaping, serenity from darkness
Eternal damnation or tormenting redemption

Void of mind's fragility, the truth lies hidden
Beneath the sacred words of light, the sacred words of light
Shining with the aura of martyrdom, reaching it's crippled arms
To light the pyres of tempest, the pyres of tempest

Void of mind's fragility, the truth lies hidden
Beneath the sacred words of light, the sacred words of light
Shining with the aura of martyrdom, reaching it's crippled arms
To light the pyres of tempest, the pyres of tempest

Transience of life shall reveal (itself its secrets) to the blindfold
Through divine power of omniscience
The swart wilderness of spiritual ascension
Concealed in scars of souls revelation

Void of mind's fragility, the truth lies hidden
Beneath the sacred words of light, the sacred words of light
Shining with the aura of martyrdom, reaching it's crippled arms
To light the pyres of tempest, the pyres of tempest

Void of mind's fragility, the truth lies hidden
Beneath the sacred words of light, the sacred words of light
Shining with the aura of martyrdom, reaching it's crippled arms
To light the pyres of tempest, the pyres of tempest

Void of mind
Words of light
Aura of martyrdom
Pyres of tempest
Track Name: Nether
Vast cold sepulchral darkness
Plague of fear upon men

Deception of what is free will
Enslaving the idea of being

Through the eyes of sacred blindness
Within a light of thousand flames

Existence perished in decay
Beyond the veil of unfolding madness

Descend into the abyss of mind
The withering world revealed
Come forth embrace your fall
Bear the burden of fate’s reverse

Cast into tenebrous void of emptiness
With ominous cries witnessing life’s decline
Floating… Nether…

Cast into tenebrous void of emptiness
With ominous cries witnessing life’s decline
Floating… Nether…
Track Name: The Fall
Surrender mankind
To the lunacy of dreams
In feebleness
The shelter of faith dissolves

In desolate tombs
Wisdom and daring wither to dust
Wretchedness of grace
Unveils the fragile nature of bliss

Poison of doubt
Permeates this woebegone life
Shade over shade
Lies upon the seed of being

We tore our lives to pieces
Pieces of soul’s shattered glass
We buried our dreams to dust
With ashes that left the weakness arose

(The fall)
Grace of Man or a failure of God
(The fall)
An image of fractured delusive peace
(The fall)
In lucid conflict existence collapsed
(The fall)
Through tremors in faith or denial of “truth”

(The fall)
Atonement of soul through your idol’s blood
(The fall)
Downfall of hope though the spiral of dread
(The fall)
Flames of reluctance enlighten the self
(The fall)
So shall the world go on…
Track Name: The Hollow Men
In a spiral of chaotic ordeal, soreness of life prevails
Essence of hope becomes feeble, reality becomes unreal
Shattered, shapeless forms, the entropy of soul
Devoured in wholeness of vanity, spirits of the hollow men

Let them coming closer, harmed by ascending timelessness
Let them drawn in chasm, amidst the wasteland of illusion
Carrying their burden, appalling mantle of bleakness
Wrapping their hope, the hope of hollow men

We are the hollow men
Born of chaotic ordeal
Shattered, shapeless forms
Devoured in wholeness of vanity

We are the hollow men
The entropy of soul
Appalling mantle of bleakness
Shattered, shapeless forms

And our vulnerable world shall crumble
Paralyzed in baneful antrum
Track Name: Scars Of Seclusion
The breath of failure upon our face
Dressed in divine darkness
Pillars of “hope” drape ourselves
Pillars of “faith” corrode our senses

Centuries of loss, oblivion and decay
And eyes staring in lifeless future
Disdained presence, suppressed in fractured consciousness
Alone we tremble prevailed by gloom

Imprisoned by words of disillusion
Pieces of shattered glass, reflection of a blinding sun
As remnants of despair we shall arise
Calling out for truth we shall arise

Scars of seclusion, wounds of instinct
Embedded in stagnant, worthless reality
They sit alone at the edge of reason
As the time of will’s collapse draws near

We raise our hands towards the starless heavens
Standing at the threshold of life’s futility
(And yet) In your scornful dogma we shall seek no shelter
Embrace the curse of your paltry creature:

BEHOLD THE BIRTH OF DOUBT!!!

Imprisoned by words of disillusion
Pieces of shattered glass, reflection of a blinding sun
As remnants of despair we shall arise
Calling out for truth we shall arise
Track Name: Reliquae
Lost in timeless frail hopes
Dazzled in the glow of feeble words
Sunk in a world formed in endless deception
Drown in vestiges of timeless desolation

Yet in streams of oppression and gloom
On the amorphous limbo between wisdom and impugn
Life-stricken, jaded and yet incessantly opposing
I shall curse the stillborn deceiving horizon

I am the remnant amongst ashes of litany
A relic beneath the leaden skies of distrust
A perpetual vortex, a soul in anguish and perdition
Discordant with axioms of creed

Yet in streams of oppression and gloom
On the amorphous limbo between wisdom and impugn
Life-stricken, jaded and yet incessantly opposing
I shall curse the stillborn deceiving horizon

Grits of revolt against crooked ideologies
They shall form the desert of their demise
They shall be the herald of a new dawn
A relic brightening the pursuit of truth
Track Name: Aletheia
With restless heart
I cast a glance
Towards a light
The light that binds

Harbinger of deceit
Crowned in agony
Chanting thy name
Bearer of depravity/taint

A monument of bliss, a monument of misery
Architecture of bewilderment
You who you are and yet do not exist
I summon thee, grant me light

Light of thousand suns, welcome my demise
Dissolve my sins, my fears, my pain
From dust and ash I shall arise
Dormant for lies, awaken, unburden

Yet lost into
Barren lands
Lands of shattered will
Condemned to wail

In utter delusion
Mute in “godlike” silence
Am I lost and bound
Never to defy

I will have no fear
And no peace of mind
Before this dread
Bearing ruination

I will embrace my torment
I will watch it flow through me
And when it leaves my side
I will turn my gaze upon its path

When the storm has passed
The void will crumble
Only I will remain
My new self will rise
