Shadow Of Intent - The Prelude To Bereavement Lyrics

It came from the Magellanic cloud
Taking hosts, breaking bones into new forms, not death but something more
He swept us right off of our feet and caressed our worlds with crimson flame
Taking hosts, breaking bones into new forms, not death but something more

When the sun withers and dies and the darkness takes whole
When the reign of the wicked has overcome the toll
The brainless ones and the souls of the righteous will burn our holy fucking Ecumene to the ground

Eviscerate the beast where he stands and sever each limb with precision
Each system and its sentience will be ingested to construct new worlds for his deadened empire

We can keep this secret from you no more
The time has come for us to defend our stars, our branch of the Orion Arm, and all other life that exists among us

Rise, my Prometheans!
It is time for us to wage war!
Let us shatter their bones and let the skies rain coarse with their blood

Relish in the miasma, their rotting stench, and let the remnants of their singed bodies lie devoured by fire
For if we face defeat, this will just be the prelude of our bereavement

    Shadow of Intent never ceases to amaze me.

    100th comment

  40. Deathippy Gaming

    this band is actually ok compared to all the other shit the Deathcore industry is producing now days

  41. Reddusk Ironsky

    Already better than RoS and Infant Annihilator. These two bands are imo so overrated. Shadow of Intent sounds way cooler and they deserve way more recognition than those two.


    An abstract illusion is better than all of them ;)

    spore bubu

    Abstract Illusion is more proggy then Tech/Death/Core whatever this is.

    Day shadow

    Reddusk Ironsky someone with all the fucking reason.

  42. Joonas Kirss

    Greatest intro of all times

  43. Chris Becker

    Just bought this album before the first song even finished. Sounds amazing

  44. Randall Slater

    An amazing beginning to an amazing album

  45. shiran david

  46. Blake Holland

    this is fucking amazing

  47. PoisonTick

    The fact that you guys are a Halo themed band makes me so fucking happy, love your music and wish you guys a lot of success

  48. Deku Butler

    Jayden J Bryant

    Deku Butler same

  49. Antagonists

    An' the Promeatheans have risen. it took years, but. biokensis has changed, them. Ended the human vessals an' brought to golden-orange sun light.

    The Didact's Will.

    Bodies come closer to the time, where the need to connect will no longer be possible.

    I've returned against my will, an' I am here to cause omnigalatic Peace.

    That is my message for the Didact.

    Do you remember, a Promeanthean's body? Men look like. *t* _h_Is.

  50. jose calderon

    intro is sick as hell

  51. Silenc9

    3:26 so fucking good

  52. Dani Dosis

    buena banda <3

  53. Kevin M

    i imagine this band as being a mix of carnifex, whitechapel, and Be'lakor

    The Epitome of Brutality

    I don't hear any Be'lakor in it, but that might be just me.

    Xeph Xen

    Kevin M A few tiny bits remind me of Be'lakor. I love them.

  54. Kus Tam

  61. Based Lord

    This album is about Halo

    Based Lord

    Yeah, Shadow of Intent was the name of a Covenant Cruiser, the Battle of the magninot Sphere is the last battle between the forerunners and the flood

    UndeadStorm Blade

    Thomas Hughes All the songs are about halo lol. u can tell by the lyrics and band name. fucking amazing

    KillMe Softly

    SAIYANLINEAGE \\\\\\\ this song is about the flood in general and yes I necroed

    Cyber connect 2

    Nooooooooooo! REALLY? I couldn't tell...

    Satan Claus

    The band is about Halo.

  62. MsJoey

    So many goosebumps and eargasms in one song! You guys are awesome!!

    Jari The Sauna Lover

    @MsJoeyJody They are great in general but when you compare them to other bands in the genre, they quickly pale in comparison to bands like Obscura or The Faceless.

    Héricles França

    +Jari The Sauna Lover Obscura (not Deathcore) and The Faceless (not Deathcore since a long time) aren't not even close to average, and doesn't use minor harmonic as their most important scale (like SOI does). Also, they don't have Symphonic elements (this band uses these symphonic elements greatly by the way). Plus, SOI vocalist is one of the best in the Deathcore scene.
    I'd say this band is not even close to the average. Their sound is very unique, giving the fact that they are inside a previously created genre. I, personally, can't find a band very similar to this (and i'm a great -core fan)
    I love this and I don't like The Faceless and Obscura too much, SOI doesn't sound like them


    @Jari The Sauna Lover Not a big fan of The Faceless. You can't compare Shadow of Intent to them.

    Aurora Dash

    Héricles França They (to me) sound similar to Rings of Saturn.

    Reddusk Ironsky

    wtf? Obscura and The Faceless? Really? They are nothing compared to this band. The Faceless is not even deathcore anymore. It is your opinion that you may like them more than SOI but to say they are paled by them? Nope, they have a more unique sound, better than The Faceless.

  63. Nitesh Pokhrel

    the next infant anhiliator

    Day shadow

    Nitesh Pokhrel more technical and better and neither sounds like infant.

  64. Matt

    thank god for suggestions

  65. Stan Ippel

    haven't heard such a killer album in a while! Keep it up guys.

  66. DddyBaphomet666

    16,666 view. yes. hail Satan.


    2nd best album next to the elysian grandeval galériarch by infant annihilator


    +Willi Lib Heil Satanas

    вronкus тonкus

    @DddyBaphomet666 I love that album

  67. davi vexis

    one of the most epic intros ive heard in years

    Cori Ream

    Yes for the love of god can shadow teach all these other bands how to stsrt a god damn album

    Cori Ream

    In todays death metal scene you really have to blow brains out from the onset or you automatically start from behind.

    Onyx Raptor

    davi vexis And outros too...

  68. vvnti christ

    A band, that is mightier than Rings of Saturn in destroying the universe

    kabob 007

    They're as mighty as the Rings that the Forerunners made... Now press the button, we have Flood to kill.

  69. VistaSuxx

    This is so insanely good, right in my sweetspot!

    Graf Alexander von Eich zu Soltau

    Whole album had me like "holy fuck"

  70. Justyn Fogarty

    I'm so impressed this is absolutely incredible!

  71. Dash71101

    4:38 - 5:51 EARGASM!!!

    Sead Šabić

    Dash71101 I would *NEVER* expect something like this in a deathcore song, so beautiful, the whole song is fucking beautiful

  72. Atiagooq


  73. Miguel Meneses Hernandez

    Karpizzle sends me with good tidings, you band fucking rocks

    Miguel Meneses Hernandez

    @Marksman 5147 great huh?

    Marksman 5147

  76. Ryusuke Yoshida

    godamn dude this is fvcking sick, Boo + Shore of Elysium + The Raven Autharchy + Within the Ruins

  77. Sven Budak

    Guys, your music freaks out so much that I get goosebumps on my ballsack! I do find the higher aggro vocals better than the porky grunting... but the fact remains that you are the best band I have ever heard! (And I've heard quite a few)

  78. Joel Ildefonso

    God fucking damit that fcking introoo

  79. Sid Gates

    Damn awesome music

  80. Manu Cuevas

    Im crying of happines cuz for first time in my life i found a band better than Rings of Saturn.... omg..

    James Hardwick

    Most likely because they have a backing track consisting of their synths and their bass. They are fairly reliant on their backing track seeming they don't have a bass player. Rings of Saturn can definitely play their shit, extremely well. Not only are Lucas and Miles extremely impressive live but their vocalist is insane and Aaron Stechauner plays the drums real tight, even though the drums on Lugal Ki en were written/produced or whatever by Aaron Kitcher which would be fuckin hard. They're good dudes and they make mad music whether you're into it or not, it is a little video-gamey compared to other deathcore/metal bands but that's something I personally enjoy about them.

    Justice Ostapowicz

    marry me

    Shadow Dance

    Soul Dragon Amen


    Manu Cuevas angel maker?


    Jari The Sauna Lover if RoS sucks and IA is overrated, this is ok, what are good Deathcore bands? Those 3 are top tier Deathcore bands

  81. Heresy Denied
