In the Hands of the Betrayer 2016

by Northern Crown



Here's a special surprise for all of our fans who've been supporting us the last two years! This version of the title track from our debut EP features re-tracked rhythm guitars and bass, plus a completely new mix and mastering job. Enjoy!


A forked path, no time to decide
Couldn’t bear it, it’s time to hide
Never bothered asking it why
But I couldn’t stay even though you died

No remorse
No recourse
In due course
For the betrayer

Abomination, morphed into flesh
Careless bringer of untimely death
Putrid stench comes from its breath
To his cries it was nothing but death

No remorse
No recourse
In due course
For the betrayer

Can’t imagine the weight of this guilt
Tearing down the life I once built
Drive my dagger up to the hilt
Nothing changed, but its blood is spilt

No remorse
No recourse
In due course
For the betrayer

Their first album, “The Others”, tested its footing on the fringe of prog. Their self-titled second album was a hydra waving the flag of Doom n’ Roll. "In A Pallid Shadow" will be released July 3, 2020. ... more
