about

Mysterious One-Man Down-Tempo/Doom/Sludge Metal artist AKA Beneath The Storms is back with his 3rd release – Devil's Village and it's perhaps his bleakest and disturbing release to date. Expect long drawn out drone based nightmarish riffs that have a sinister edge to them. It's dark, violent, thrilling and packs a lot of chilling moments within it's 51 minute running time.
This is a concept album based on the cult classic movie “City of the Dead”. The album uses actual soundclips from the film - City Of The Dead on all of the songs to give you a sense you're actually experiencing the movie yourself. The guitar work is quite frantic at times especially on tracks such as At The Hour Of 13, Whitewood and Burn The Witch. The lyrical content as you can imagine is bleak and desolate through out. This is the perfect album for all you doom and gloom horror fanatics out there.

My final thoughts on Devil's Village is that's an unrelenting attack on the senses. It's perhaps one of the most highly atmospheric Doom/Sludge Metal albums you'll hear this year. The best way to experience this album is perhaps on Halloween and watch some classic clips from the film on YouTube to get the full effect. A superb and well rounded effort from Beneath The Storms.
Steve Howe (Outlaws Of The Sun)

Track Name: The Curse Of Elizabeth
THE CURSE OF ELIZABETH

here me now
i will return
i shall conquer
and rule
in the fire
you will burn
as i did before you
in fire
for hours
taken my life
taken my dignity
my sacrifice
the curse of elizabeth
my time to rise
the curse of elizabeth
misty fog
descending
darkness all around
awaiting
my arrival
now i
shall return
Track Name: The Witches' Sabbath
THE WITCHES' SABBATH

they gather
on witches' sabbath
blood sacrifice
on witches' sabbath
a coven of witches
black mass for the devil
a dead bird
a sprig of woodbine
sacrifice
a bloody ritual
shedding my blood
on the altar
at the hour of thirteen
witches' bloody ritual
sacrifice
Track Name: At The Hour Of 13
AT THE HOUR OF 13

her curse haunts me
as i'm seeking a way out
the chants are getting louder
at the hour of 13
voices in the night
whispers of the past
the people bare a secret
forgotten ancient tales
Track Name: Starting The Ritual
STARTING THE RITUAL

witches gather below
starting the ritual
fire hides the shadow
starting the ritual
at the hour of 13
execution of Elizabeth
she was burned alive
hated and condemned
the night when the witches mock
the rituals of the church
by performing sacrifices
they gain immortality
candlemas evening
starting the ritual
on march third
sixteen ninety two
they burned her
sentenced at the stake
she was burned alive
hated and condemned
buried by the church
starting the ritual
Track Name: Whitewood
WHITEWOOD

devil's village
of the damned
for 300 years
evil has triumphed here
witches hide a secret
of sacrificial rituals
people hide a secret
in whitewood
strangers rarely visit
this god forsaken place
this town is under a curse
for 300 years
Track Name: Burn The Witch
BURN THE WITCH

burn the witch
burn
on candlemas eve
burn the witch
burn
be our sacrifice
sixteen ninety two
sentenced at the stake
hated and condemned
buried lies elizabeth
three years later
the rituals began
blood sacrifices
a coven of the damned
burn the witch
Track Name: Tonight Begins The Ritual
TONIGHT BEGINS THE RITUAL

thrown into the fire
i was burned alive
a victim of the shadows
i am but a sacrifice
silently awaiting
the hour of 13
secrets of the coven
tonight begins the ritual
a victim of the shadows
i was burned alive
secrets of the coven
tonight begins the ritual
Track Name: Moonlight Through The Trees
MOONLIGHT THROUGH THE TREES

all around me darkness
running for my life
the only thing that guides me
is the moonlight through the trees
lost in the forest
i'm hearing voices
whispers of the ancient ones lurking
i see a lurking shadow
whispering to me
lost in the forest
of the witch
run
run away
hide behind
the shadow of the cross
