What a weird fucking place The human race No trace of life in the city Cemetery song What a drag it is To wait for death But death never comes Cemetery song … human race!
2.
Every time I’m on the street People laugh and point at me They talk about the length of my hair And the out of date clothes that I wear They say I look like the living dead They say I can’t have shit in my head They say my songs are much too slow But they don’t know the things that I know I know I don’t belong There’s nothing I can do I was born too late And I’ll never be like you … I don’t want to be like you. (*Lyrics by Saint Vitus)
3.
Urn Megála 03:30
Ashes from flashes In black sashes we return To the darkness of an urn When bombs are dropped ad nauseam The world’s an urn megála Urn… Megála!
4.
If you see me In the daylight Grab a shovel And an oboe Too tired to bear the Furies’ dread With manes of snakes they haunt my head Waste me away from the funeral priest! Funeral… Priest!
5.
Borgo Pass 03:40
Suitcase in hand you see The coach from Count Dracula Awaits on foggéd peaks Whose brutal summit Winding black roads & Chorus of ravenous wolves Alert you All too late Alas, The Count’s horses gnaw at their bait! … suitcase in hand you see.
6.
Wolves bay to the beat Like freaks out in the street A snaggle-toothéd fleet Manes of silver Fogs that linger Transylvania We your children Full moon howl along For thine October: song Of burning lupine eyes Prowl, wild packs, prowl! For the sign of the Star & The Count.
7.
Jacosta’s brooches Once so prized I pray now They black my eyes I refuse to see my fate I refuse to face my crimes Golden brooches Once pristine Cleanse me of This sight obscene … Blind Oedipus!
8.
You think you run the night But you depend on candlelight Stopping dead in your tracks Turn around, yelp, “What’s that?” ‘Cause I have skin like the devil And teeth like a bat I said it’s me who runs the night My black eyes never need a light When it’s too late you’ll obey As cold fangs seize your last delay … I said I like it that way.

about

February 21, 2021: CULTUM DRACULESTI presents, “ANTIGONE THE MARTYR". On this album, Cultum Draculesti (formerly Spinster City) is performed and produced by Dionysos Capsalis (she/her) from Herndon, VA.
The underground is alive and well… or, rather UNDEAD and POSSESSED! Cultum Draculesti’s new L.P. “Antigone The Martyr” is black metal for the misfits. It’s a sound for the devoted -- the OBSESSED! Layers of cold darkness drench every song. It’s a loud, snowy blanket of sludge. Delirious percussion drowns in freezing rain-rippled pools of black fuzz guitars & ferally distorted bass. Nothing reverberates quite like the world in a nightmare. The bleak, shrieking voice of Dionysos sops in a whisky of death – something is terribly wrong. Where are the maenads? Where is the revelry? When did the winter arrive? Flash: we awake in a wilderness, frozen. A funeral is heard in the distance, shrouded. Did we miss the siege? The melodies of Grecian oboes and wailing mothers lure us from our camp. Has Antigone stolen the body of her brother… and survived?

8 songs of varied styles & topics! All 8: heavy and authentic. Cultum
Draculesti invites you to shed your worldly inhibitions and join the
romance cult of the COUNT.
