I follow this road, Landscapes on hold in the hands of the four, lighted by a dying core, ruins and forrests as far as the eye can reach when the fire dies this dream begins to bleach thoughts becomes ice Nevermind, im lost in the city lights as a creature to tempt fate, as a stranger in the alley shade Marching forwards into selfdestruction and praying for salvation, isnt my meaning of civilisation With a bottle of gin we consume the nights a concept of sin to stand in one´s own light primates, shows you your place as a wheel nameless beggars, a spirit to peel. liquid fooling rushess the throats who are the sheeps, where are the goats? I follow this road, cities on hold in the hands of four lighted by a bloody core monuments of failure, figures of disgrace to come to the fore, at this godforsaken place when the fire dies, thoughts becomes Ice
From dead leaves I arise Through all these years you've devoured your lies I was breathing the soil bringing visions to life Thorns piercing the skin like a knife The appetite entangles all of those who contemplate awakening the demons inside of their hearts I shatter my mind to a tousand parts and each fragment is my pride we fall, from the twilight we fall, into the night I bury myself beneath the leaves in these desert places for a time that is worth living in where no human race is


Ad Cinerem started out as black metal-influenced doom metal project with Val Atra Niteris (Drums, Guitar, Bass) and Hekjal (Lyrics, Guitar) as sole members. In the characteristic light of the process that the Metalscene has undergone over the last years we want to catch the spirit of melancholia, atmosphere and force under this banner without to bereave the music by using empty terms.
Ad Cinerem is firmly rooted in traditional black metal and everything that comes with it, ultimately developing into a utterly sinister take on traditional doom metal.

Our first record "Once Mourned – Now Forgotten" is a three track Demo which contains the first songs that we create with the direct intension and spirit we want to demonstrate as Ad Cinerem.

About the lyrical content we can say its an exploratory journey through the depths and heights of a human mind and soul, a journey to exploring why we walk on the paths of ruin, against our will and why we may never know ourselfs trully. Its about loss, foreignness, longing, hate and love.
