about

Highborne's second full-length album a year in the making. a grand step up from the first album; a new high-point in which Archon has reached in his musical career efforts. As promised, Highborne has unleashed the second full-length record, exactly one year after the debut album.

The Dusk of Solitude is figuratively about the darker side of things, in which brings despair and anguish throughout solitude by isolation. Archon wrote the album as a reflection of his mind, and the will of the world today, it comes from personal experience and thought provoking chaos.

Track Name: Obscura Arcana
Arcanum...

Reveal ancient truth in which our purpose falls into and let it be known in our time of weakness, this strength is needed to grow...

Wisdom goes beyond what we know in a far light that guides our souls from a miracle, obscured by wisdom..

Arcanum...

Obscura Arcana... to a new perceivable reality in our sight, in darkness the light shines through and from the light let the darkness consume... let the darkness consume, Obscura Arcana...
Track Name: Spirit in Anguish
An abomination of great chaos reaps inside my mind, I am forced away in total isolation another sinister product of my imagination, a figment of black shadows echoing on, I am no longer who I once was, a transfiguration of my inner self, for I cannot find peace to cope with this anguish I feel.
Track Name: Malicious Intent
In these dark times, conquering every inch of the mind,
There is mortal madness flowing through weakened life,
With distress within, so let it begin,
The only way out is to make it end.

Endure the pain you feel and lure the madness onto you,
Ensure that the misery you feel, is worth every evil that you do.

Malicious intent to end this suffering..
With this soul of darkness.

To find your mind, in the darkest night,
Like a depleted soul in this conquering life,
With mortal madness flowing through weakened life,
With lingering pain, let it begin,
The only way out is to make it end.

Endure the pain you feel and lure the madness onto you,
Ensure that the misery you feel, is worth every evil that you do.
Track Name: Funeral Covet
Vengeance driven madness has no boundaries for a bloodlust sacrifice on graves of the damned, a thirst for knowledge is a funeral away, the enslavement of mankind has weakened the mind, a new world order to dominate a species designed to procreate.

Funeral covet,
Funeral covet,
Funeral covet
Thirst to sacrifice...

With an arsenal of darkness all will suffer, we invite you to the summons on the blackest night, an altar of sacrificial offerings to conspire with the damned on the darkest plight, the time to transcend away from the light, to an oblivion obscured by sight, transfiguring...

Funeral covet,
Funeral covet,
Funeral covet
Thirst to sacrifice...

Transfiguring into oblivion...

Decapitated bastards hanging on wires in the skies, blood soaking the ground gruesomely slaughtering the mass, a thirst for blood, a desire for death, deep inside a funeral covet transfiguring into a breathless existence of immortality.
Track Name: Remorseless Winter
In darkness, I will rise.

Uncover the frozen decaying remains of the past, to see death before your misguided eyes, with darkness prevailing, shadows consuming, over veins of frost, new order of the world is imminent.

Mortal beings oblivious to evil, their own betrayal resulted in endless winter, they dug their graves, and now none prevail but the evil that created all and the shadows that desire agony... remorse absent.

Now at the end of days empty life among every thing that is, none will rise.

In the absence of light, they will see with their precious eyes, what I've become all this time, so long without knowing the truth, I'm here and they'll feel agony without an end!
To see what I've become, what I've done, when I fell to darkness, I've left my grave, and I rise, they will feel agony without an end... Frozen in decaying remains, remorseless.
Track Name: Black Despondency
A silhouette of my dissatisfaction of a present incarnation,
Of desperation, drowned again in lonesome weeping,
I'm disavowed in this endless prison, haunting me,
With daunting conjecture, leaving me frantically searching,
For a conclusion to this feeble existence.

Black despondent,
As I reach realms of possibilities.

I feel these bitter tears of grief flowing through my wandering soul at night,
Meeting with my fate, I reflect these cold tears,
In the heart of the ones who matter,
Optimistically desiring new horizons for a decaying mind, Therefore receiving none, for I am as dead as the flower on my barren grave..
Track Name: Legion of Hate
Amidst a swirling storm of screaming voices,
That came to be known, by these choices,
That had me loathe the ones I had entrusted to bestow,
Upon my secrets and to never reveal my weakness to be shown..

Hate it made me this way,
Emptiness I choose to stay,
In my legion of hate, I wish,
The end wasn't too late.

In the end I was beaten with my own past,
And it never fled this tormented mind,
And those who knew became my enemies,
With this experience I'll never open up, never will I let them know,
Forced alone, no more to show...

Hate it made me this way,
Emptiness I choose to stay,
In my legion of hate, I wish,
The end wasn't too late.
Track Name: Beyond the Dark Veil
Evil coats me like a dark veil,
Concealed behind the skin,
The path of guidance is in sin,
The dark veil, is hiding the truth,
Beyond the shadow of death,
Beyond the existing night,
Sickness, sadness & despair.

Beyond the dark veil, beyond the existing,
Beyond the dark veil, beyond the existing.

Evil coats me like a dark veil.

Evil grants me eternal life,
Conceived beneath the moon,
Path to the existence,
The dark veil is covering over!
Beyond the shadow of death,
Beyond the existing night,
Sickness, sadness, & despair,
Beyond the existing night.

Beyond the dark veil, beyond the existing,
Beyond the dark veil, beyond the existing.
Track Name: The Howling of the Winds
I can hear it calling; it's echoing thunder.
In my nightly slumber. the roar of dead dreams,
Awoken upon this vision, I feel like nothing is right,
How I feel to encounter, such nightmares; monstrosities,
Weeping internally, and the old me is dead.

In the howl of the winds, at the ends the meaning of life,
Nothing will ever be the same..

The howl of the winds,
Alone, cold, feeble,
Abandoned again, alone... forever.

I'm chasing after broken promises, capturing nothing but disappointment,
When I see my reflection, I see a tormented soul,
Forever cast upon this shadow, letting go of the person I was,
Embracing this pain, I hide away,
And in the end, my sanity will stay.

In the howl of the winds, at the ends the meaning of life,
Nothing will ever be the same..

So now I awake, in the shadow of the moon,
A careless broken soul, gone too soon,
I'm in the twilight of my mind, and this insanity will consume,
Every last perception of reality in my final state of being.

In the howl of the winds, at the ends the meaning of life,
Nothing will ever be the same..
Track Name: Narcissistic Inclination
Your disposition in reality, is a reflection of your narcissistic insanity,
An inclination to limit your mind,
Another cynical personality with no individuality,
Claiming insanity with no reason, an inclination to limit your mind.
Track Name: Through Dead Meadows
Walking through dead meadows,
I have been along this path to solitude,
For years, I've been wandering alone,
In these dark places that I have known.

In the grove of my dreams,
I'm reflecting on the past,
What I've seen, gone at last,
For in the end, when it all ends,
My soul will be alone, in these dead meadows.

Throughout... I've begun to see,
Meadows... the darkness in it's glory.

I will find my mind, in closing time,
While I walk through dead meadows of past darkness,
I have come to my end, and I kneel before my fate,
As shadow consumes the destiny of my path to death..


In the grove of my dreams,
I'm reflecting on the past,
What I've seen, gone at last,
For in the end, when it all ends,
My soul will be alone, in these dead meadows.
Track Name: Revel in Darkness
Your desperation is pathetic, in your aspect of inconsideration,
The truth haunts your soul, as you revel your arrogance,
Your criminality is daunting you, it's catching up, and in the end,
Your message will fade, and your tyrannical power will dissipate,
You're desperate for power, you're desperate to deceive.

Revel in your cynical mind, revel in your critical thought,
Revel in darkness... distraught.

Thoughtless, and mindless,
You follow your leader, believing a future that won't exist,
Occupied by no relevance, the machine has consumed,
Compliant to the devil, you submit to judgement,
And you will betray your own human kind.

Revel their power, revel their madness,
Revel in darkness, to devour.
Track Name: The Coming of the Dusk
Eclipse of the night, am I free?
Stricken with anger internally,
In the coming of the dusk,
I will be forever within kingdom that I have seen,
I've witness the world fall,
With the coming of the dusk,
It will be known in this kingdom, I've begun to know,
The end of the free mind has come...
The coming of dusk
Track Name: In My Kingdom of Solitude
I awaken from deep within this nightmare, I see fragments of my mind,
Fractured by this weakened, state of being, I cannot forget my past,
For when I take a breath, I cannot know that it will be the only time,
I believe the light...

An epilogue to close this tale, in my final hour,
I will prevail, from this dejection within,
As I am laid to rest...

In my mind and through the edge of the sea, I will be alone,
Forever without another warm soul, to rest it's presence onto me,
For I have pushed off every touch of happiness away, gone away,
Abandoned forever in my kingdom of solitude...
