Borknagar - The Presence is Ominous Lyrics




Prior to the forces of primacy
Concealed by the essence, the profane
Withdraws in manners of erosion
Spine of the universal conflicts

Swept towards a new domain
Reversed in time, proceed in time
Swallowed by dimensions
Swallowed by the flames

I see fear so clear in the eyes
The eyes that burn by sight
I see fear so clear when you die

The cries that torches swept by
I am yet to see the good victorious
Thunder tamed by silence
I am yet to see the man victorious
Death tamed by life

Swept towards a new domain
Reversed in time, proceed in time
Swallowing dimensions
Swallowing the flames

I see fear so clear in the eyes
The eyes that burns by sight
I see fear so clear when you die

Spine of the universal confilcts
As the motion of winds and oceans
I am on the isle of existence
the mountains at my trail
I am prepared to die
when the faith comes around to fail

Swept towards a new domain
Reversed in time, proceed in time
Swallowing dimensions
Swallowing the flames

I see fear so clear in the eyes
The eyes that burns by sight
I see fear so clear when you die

Borknagar The Presence is Ominous Comments
  1. Szabo sándor

    Ahhhhh
    Orgasm....

  2. Concolorcorvo

    My victory song. I used to play each time I felt Victorious...

  3. GHOST MOVEMENT

    Best Fucking Borknagar Song Ever.

  4. ANTONIO GALINDO RENTERIA

    Awesome song

  5. Yia

    my favorite song off this album! Magestic!

  6. Robert Chase

    It's amazing how Vortex took an already good song (from a musical sound point) and turns it into an instant masterpiece with his multi layered vocals, all of which are going in different octaves and styles. To this day, I'm still not able to emulate his higher octave clean vocals to any level I'm satisfied with, and as a singer myself, I've been trying for the better part of 12 years or so now, hahaha!

    Robert Chase

    @Hammerheart1981 Nope, that'd be Vortex at this point. Garm only did vocals for the debut album, and The Olden Domain.

    Hammerheart1981

    @Robert Chase Yeah, I thought that you were saying that 12 years ago you thought Vortex was also in the original lineup of Borknagar

    Robert Chase

    @Hammerheart1981 Hahahaha, and easy mistake to make! :) I meant that I first heard this song a good 12 years ago, and have been trying to sing it since, to little success. :P

    Yia

    +Hammerheart1981 erm...Garm

    Yia

    yep vortex here, garm on olden...

  7. NexisFilms

    Fuck yeah , what's up with this fucking earworm melody ?!
    It's not even one of the best songs out there .. it's just ....

  8. Arve Lier Olsen

    Just perfect ;-)

  9. FuckinWurny

    I just listened to this for the first time in years and cried like a little girl :S

  10. Salajo

    I came from Immortal Night. Eternal Damnation House. :)

  11. Daarkvader

    Yes this is the first one i heard and the vocals blew me away, if only this kind of blending is done more often... its like a nordic god is singing

  12. bogdiworksV2

    easily one of the best metal (across the board) singers if not THE best. I love how he manages not to sound screechy in the high register, which is often the case in metal. I was lucky enough to see him with Dimmu back in 2008 but not with Borknagar :(

    GHOST MOVEMENT

    I, Too, Was Grateful To See Dimmu In 2003. It Truly Was An Epic Night Because Of Vortex. I Would Soul Myself Itself To See Ulver.

    David Perez

    I saw him twice with Dimmu 2002 and 2007... Just saw Borknagar in Kristiansand. Epic!!!

  13. NickPerrinMusic

    And of course later in the track, the second clean voice is not simply transposed up an octave, but rather harmonizing the first line.

  14. NickPerrinMusic

    This was a really innovative and effective vocal sound they created here. It's not just Vortex clean + Vortex growl, it's clean, clean up one octave, and growls. The resulting sound really blew me away when I first heard it, it sounded inhuman. But it truly empowered the music in an original way I never would have expected.

  15. Edgar Baphomet

    is the best song yeah borknagar is the best!

  16. Christopher Cruz

    Borknagar kicks asses

  17. wolfboii999

    at the end of Vortex's first clean part in "The Insight and the Catharsis" by Dimmu Borgir, Shagrath joins in and they sing the last line in unison. Something similar is happening here, Vortex layers his clean vocals with his growls, producing one sexy supersonic kick in the ass.

  18. BlackAlienLeks

    es la rola mas chingonaa de este discoo

  19. PrincessAirin

    The best Borknagar's song ♥
