*** Lyrics in "Into The Woods Of Oblivion" written by Attila József. His poem "Talán eltűnök hirtelen (Abruptly I May Pass Away)" was written in 1937, the year he committed suicide age 33. He was a genius of hungarian poetry and a tormented soul. This translation was made for the 80th anniversary of his death december 2017. I also included a part of his 1924 work "Nem én kiáltok (It's Not Me Who's Screaming)".

When life's vicissitudes devoured my sun and plunged me into transformative darkness, this album was the outstretched hand which accompanied me through some rough patches, the pat on the back which said, 'Keep going.' Tugging at the heartstrings, yet bringing solace at the same time, Devour the Sun is one of those works of art which, for me personally, transcends its medium and has held a special place in my life. And for that I wish to say: thank you.
Wholeheartedly, thank you. Voidysseus

This style of black metal often misses the mark with me, but Sojourner pulls it off very well. Empires of Ash contains heaviness and beauty, while not overdoing the elements of epic black metal that can come across as cheesy in other releases. The female vocals are a nice touch. Metallurgical Fire
