1.
Strong branches bound by one scarlet sap Rooted in a mysterious and fertile land We grow, by the echoes of our faithful chants We fight as one in our quest to reach the haven of the Sun Powered by the shine of this glorious gaze We dwell in honor, guarded by a celestial hand Through the realms of Life and Death, we embrace our destiny We will not behold the great illusion of time For we stand among the bodiless who cross the cold river Born from the ashes of wars We survived the dark rains of swords and arrows We survived the soiled and relentless blood streams For we are protected and blessed by the all-mighty being We are the heralds of the sun As incarnated deities, with soldiers' eyes We protect the vastitude of the old continent Guided by the echoes of our former existences The temporal omniscience is our strongest weapon We are the winds, the breath of the Earth As a sacred mission, we spread the seeds, for the survival of our land

As I walk, alone, in the golden fields I feel in the wheat ways The buried footsteps of my forebears These resemble mines, I have been there before This path I have to follow, for this path I've once traced The ghost of my former existence is my guide It will lead me to my hidden citadel Whose foundations were built by old bodies bones Lost in the vastitude of the old continent Years and years of wanderings in cold forests and sinuous ways Will I ever find it ? Where do these echoes come from ? Every night I see the moon's beams But my eyes never caught its shape I can not see through the black clouds I can not hear through the sad wolves howlings The ghost of my former existence is my guide It will lead me to my hidden citadel Whose foundations were built by old bodies bones The way is crystal clear, for the secrets of the land resonate in my veins Here was the source, here is the call This path I have to follow

After four years of silence, it is finally time for SVIATIBOR to unveil their new release.

SECRETS OF THE LAND is a massive work of Pagan Atmospheric Metal music, gathering numerous layers of epic orchestration, electronic soundscapes and folk instruments. It will take you on an inward journey through the ways of yore, and let you hear the voices of your ancestors speaking in your heart.
