Melodic doom metal band with black and death metal elements, - 2009- present near Boston, MA. Influenced by bands including Opeth, Amorphis, Dimmu Borgir, Cradle of Filth, Slayer, Type O Negative, and Therion, Sorrowseed's primary subject matter is that of the apocalypse and the ultimate destruction of mankind. Sorrowseed's double-disc album "The Extinction Prophecies", released in 2011, chronicles the reckoning brought upon by the Reaping Willow (portrayed by Lilith Astaroth). Once an avatar of the goddess Demeter, the Willow was a tree of wisdom.
I beckon to the souls of the desperate
Gather your energies within the forgotten depths
In the catacombs beneath unhallowed ground
The Faceless shall now look upon you
And none shall hinder your descent
Millenia of systematic slaughter
Bodies populating the outer crust of the scorched earth
Cremation crusades sprayed ashes unto the water
Tormented soldiers dread rebirth.
Deliverance is a fragile dream
The Madness festers... more potent than ever before
Ancestors... those I once adored
Bear witness to their sons!
The blasphemies I beheld...the soil in which I dwell
The cradle burns as tinder to this Hell
