German Melodic Death Viking Metal group VAGRANT present new track song. “Darkness During The Reign Of A Black Sun”
Vagrant delivers their stunning track
“Darkness During The Reign Of A Black Sun” portrays a young warrior’s sinister visions and dreams, in which he foresees a big war that eventually will be his last — yet the vision leaves a question about whether the prophecy can be trusted.
The second offering from the album, the record’s longest and most intricate song.
Taken from their debut album The Rise Of Norn Out June 14th CD/Digital
No Clean Singing gave us the pleasure of the advance streaming last night!
and had this to say about it and it’s prev track
The first single from the album, “Blood On A Crow’s Beak“, happened to be its closing track, a tragic narrative in which the dying warrior seems to share his final thoughts as his body is returned to the land of his birth. Musically, it’s an irresistible gallop of heroic riffing and glorious leads, of compulsive rhythms and scorching vocals, accented by acoustic strumming and ominous keyboard layers.
Now we have a second offering from the album, the record’s longest and most intricate song. “Darkness During The Reign Of A Black Sun” portrays a young warrior’s sinister visions and dreams, in which he foresees a big war that eventually will be his last — yet the vision leaves a question about whether the prophecy can be trusted.

This is a place of no return
here he stands in front of his enemy
without weapon in his hands
slowly he begins to see
everything now falls apart
nightmares they keep him awake
frozen tears fall to the ground
and he feels the beating of his heart
this is a place of no return
into the night he walks
all these visions tearing on his mind
what if the cause is wrong?
what if the gods do not decide?
out in the dark he hears
silence speaks to him in a foreign tongue
his hopes turn into fears
his entire life has he been wrong?
Is there anyone who knows the answer
to all these questions inside his head
these doubts are they justified
or is it fear that drives him mad?
Night and day
have always kept him sane
soon he’ ll find the answers to questions
he never asked
Is this war his destiny
or fate his own enemy
is it where he’ s going to die?
Is this war his destiny
or is fate his own enemy
this is where he’s going to die
he finds no sleep
not a single dream comes to his heart
so he stays awake
a whole night he battles his doubts
he sees the sun arise
blood red skies announcing a new day
no tears inside his eyes
