Eluveitie - From Darkness Lyrics

Is it not ironic
How your favorite dread
Is the matrix in which you were formed
The unfathomable dark
Of a realm arcane and burrowed far below

The grain sprouts from deep 'neath the soil
Where sunlight will never ever reach

From darkness we come
That shelter where all life is formed
To darkness we sail
Eternal refuge of the soul

The darkness of night goes out
When dawn befalls in the time between the times
And the grain in the soil, buried deep
Shall not bear fruit unless it dies
In the dark of Antumnos
The Awen waves and life is conceived

The day is born from the night
In the three night of Samon the year is born
So the song has been sung
Let him hear it who will

Is it not ironic
How you cling so hard
To all evidence of all there is
As you maintain your unbroken urge
To explain what you can't

The child grows in its mother's womb
Enshrouded and concealed

  13. James McCrea

    I love the song, but I always felt the bass drum was a little much. It pulls too much focus and drowns the other instruments.

    Hound of Tara also brought me here. Also, The Golden One is an excellent motivator and an inspiration to us all. Take care my fellow brothers.

  32. Transylvania Vampires

    Nice song!
    It would be even more nice if they would have decided to keep just the folk without drums and electric guitars but still nice :)


    +Transylvania Vampires But then it wouldn't be metal


    Mixing the two is genius though. Otherwise it's just some flute solo.

  33. Anders Midnatt

    And for now we're 1069 Celts vs. 9 petty outcasts.


    But like, Gaulish is an ancient Celtic language. so technically calling them Celts is Correct.

    The Gauls were Celtic peoples inhabiting Gaul in the Iron Age and the Roman period (roughly from the 5th century BC to the 5th century AD). Their Gaulish language forms the main branch of the Continental Celtic languages.

    The Celtic people were very Nomadic, the people in which language Eluveitie sings in (Gaulish) were Celts that lived in Gaul, which got taken over by the Romans forcing the Gaulish language to become extinct, whereas Celtic/Gaelic/Irish stuck around because of their traditions of moving from place to place being Nomadic and everything.

    Anders Midnatt

    Yes, Gaulish language is Celtic, and exhibit some similarity with Gaelic (Irish), they both are called 'P-Celtic' along with Celtiberian (whose speakers were inhabiting Spain except northeast, where were - and are - Basque people, and southwest, where were the Iberic peoples of Tartessus and some Phoenician colonies.

  34. Postermaestro

    I can't help it, but I just cringe when they are doing the growling.. Overall pretty nice song though


    You don't like metal or just this guy?


    @Pocahontas Well if all metal contains growling, I guess I don't like metal. I don't see how it is pleasant to listen to at all


    @Postermaestro it's just a preference. I can't stand country or rap and I don't see the appeal but others like it.


    I agree, I'm not a fan of growling/screaming vocals either. The music is great though.


    Not sure if anyone likes it at first. It's definitely an acquired taste - one listens for the instrumentation, becomes familiar with the subtleties in each guttural vocalist, and develops a taste for it. Once you've heard the really bad gutturals (omnium gatherum - the unknowing, for example, though grey havens was pretty great) the people who can do it well (chrigel glanzmann, johan hegg, mikael stanne, etc) sound that much better

  35. seancsnm

    It took 10 seconds to start getting chills.

    I must be getting numb.

  36. lazerbeam134

    Is it not Ironic that your favorite dread is the matrix in which you are formed?

  37. MrDon

    666... aaand 667 now! :D sorry...

  38. Simone Tarenzi

    Loan Wauthion

  47. exlibrisas

    I can`t believe my radio stations never play metal.


    That's cuz the radio sucks. Just unoriginal cash grabbing crap that appeals to the masses. Mostly.


    You could say that's "pop-culture".

  48. xPloSiVgT

    Wow that intro

  49. Luc Wetherbee

    Superior intro. Nothing more must be said, more horns must be put up. \m/

  50. guardianro

    I cannot fathom how exactly one can dislike this, probably lack of soul...

    Quinn A.

    @Turin Dagnir​ by the way, I didn't even say a single word against your friend. I just intended to say that Metal critisizers are stupid because they speak before thinking (listening in that case). So please spread your flame elsewhere.


    +guardianro SFANTA NASCATOARE DATATOARE DE VIATA !!!!!!!!111 one one

    Gerwin van der Linden

    +Turin Dagnir Actually, Christianity is ALL about being gentle to every other person.


    +Gerwin van der Linden Except the slaves ofc, which you can beat as much as you want, unless you kill them Exodus 21:20-21 etc.


    +QuickStrike0065 rofl why would you remove it? Let people see how stupid it is instead

  51. andreosterlindh

    This take the cake :) If someone asks me to show them Celtic/Folk metal, It's this somg!!


    andreosterlindh Uis Elveti

  52. Saanjt

    What melody or beat are they are using in the song? What's the name on the start music before the drums and singing? Really want / need to know!!


    what do you mean? It's all original. 


    It's called "from darkness" by eluveitie. Nothing more.


    Eluveitie pays homage to historical tunes in some of their songs, like Inis Mona (Tri Martolod) and Luxtos (La jument de Michao), but AFAIK not in this one.

  53. Thomas Guiblain

    Just ... :O m'y favorite, w/ King.

    Arsany Osama

    +Thomas Guiblain Same here :p


    +Thomas Guiblain Exactly.. sadly that's the good part about the song though 0:33 I mean seriously wtf..

  54. HardMusical ActivityChannel

    Wonderful ! The begining is exceptionnel
