Terra Ishtar 16:51
Accursed fog Descends and spreads Scorching the firmament The fetid air chokes the earth With diseased hands Spirit corroded Body devoured Memory of life Razed to ash Murky light casts shadows of remorse On a burning lake of acid tears Shimmering faces of admonition Reflected gaze of condemnation I laid the foundation of this hell I shaped this world with my own hands A broken land Cleansed by fiery winds The swollen sun Casts its callous judgement, Ignites the scourge Of an endless road, Eternal path of punishment and regret

Babylon 11:52
Lifeless frozen permanence As far as the eye can see Dying, our sun fades to black What once was is now gone Wastelands, littered with all but life Uninhabited for eternity Ahh Babylon A ghost town for demons is all that's left A garrison of carrion spirits Garrison of loathsome carrion birds The only thing left of Babylon is blood The blood of saints and prophets The murdered and the martyred Oh Babylon, the whole earth has drank the madness in your wine Now a day has come when you must pay for every crime Our death will come slowly The nights become longer False hope, false gods Nothing but lies Captive in our own delusion A ghost town for demons is all that's left A garrison of carrion spirits Garrison of loathsome carrion birds The only thing left of Babylon is blood The blood of saints and prophets The murdered and the martyred

Eschaton 12:59
Void of hope Faith gone Nothingness devours Extinction assured Null, slate wiped clean Utterly blanked out Unto the metagalaxy Scattered throughout existence Particles of ancient origin Extinction The charred and broken bones of cities The frigid breath of a sunless sky Sores in the earth bleed liquid fire Cursed fate, scorched dust Ash cloud, the sun black, forgone Life is revoked Fallow, this vast space once more The day the world ends No one will be there Just as no one was there when it began This is a scandal Such a scandal for the human race That it is indeed capable collectively, out of spite Of hastening the end of the world by all means Just so it can enjoy the show

Morose subsistence Befouled dwellings Unreal providence Discoloured flesh Insanity calls Wretched life Festering bodies Morbid age Life confined underground No daylight, only flame Born of earth and disease Catacombs, our home Severance from all that was Now entombed alive At the end of it all Pitiful excuse for life There’s none more deserving than the human race Suicide, common practice No other release as the doom unfolds Eulogy unspoken Our failures resonate In timeless folds of space Twisted becomings Derive foundations Lurking beneath us Thrives that which succeeds us No longer lucid Trapped within these walls Buried in our filth Death will become us Emptied of all thought Drained and bewildered Born of undoings Comes such redemption

about

The third album "Terrene" from international death/funeral doom act Mesmur is a colossal and moving sonic rendering of a dying world. Where their 2017 album S operated on a cosmic scale, Terrene explores similar themes of entropy and impending chaos in a more terrestrial context, and is rife with the suffocating dirges and toxic atmosphere the band is known for. Featuring guest flute and cello performances by Don Zaros of Evoken and the Russian Nadia Avanesova, and another stunning cover design by Ukranian painter Cadaversky, Terrene reaches new levels of scope and ambition for Mesmur in their objective to create a vast and immersive doom metal experience.


"Mesmur know how to create something tragically beautiful as Terrene displays raw emotions over the course of an intense yet dreamlike musical journey."
- Nine Circles

"an album of both crushing agony, and sublime beauty, of deep melancholy and sorrow"
- Metal Wani

"there’s quite a bit to like here as no one does it quite like Mesmur when it comes to exponentially atmospheric doom/death... a very immersive experience that feels like the the death knell of an alien world that we can only grasp partially, in short musical glimpses."
- The Grim Tower

"an engaging, absorbing experience, one which is well worth having for any fan of funeral doom"
- Wonderbox Metal

"Terrene is an album that enters of right in the restricted number of funeral doom excellences well beyond the temporal enclosure of this 2019"
- Grind on the Road

"Is it a game changing album? Time will tell, but once heard it’s hard to not think that it really should be recognised as such."
- GBHBL

"A top segment in the genre"
- Metalfans.be

"strong both from the technical side and in matters of atmospheric. It can be seen that the musicians are experienced and passionate fans of their craft."
- Homo-Faber
