Nascentes Morimur

Bucky Elliott Keeps the thrashy/death metal controlled throughout, bringing the doom to the forefront. Vocals thrash in and out of moaning doom to deathly wails while throbbing in unison with the pulsating hypnotic drum blasts. Elliott's kept themselves isolated from the pack of typical stoner/doomsters by 'demon'strating a sort of Overkill meets Sabbath lovechild, and it slays. Favorite track: Convergence.

Frederick Squier One of those albums that suck you in and immerse you in rich sound. Time passed very quickly and I was surprised when it was over. A very solid Doom sound with nice variations on the theme Favorite track: Gates Beyond.
Roland Don Doom

FDJ Doom of the epic variety, shades of Candlemass , Solitude Aeturnus and Gates of Slumber in these grooves.
Fear not though Doomsters these guys are not just copyists they also bring their own twist on the genre to the altar table.Good stuff! Favorite track: Omen.
The Shrieks From Below

The Shrieks From Below Normally, I'd go for the uglier side of doom with a heavy dose of sludge on the side. I've been there and done that with the likes of CANDLEMASS years ago.However, occasionally an album comes out that grabs your immediate attention, and this is one such album. The guitar tone isn't as warm as,say, GALLOW GOD, instead there's something of a thrashy crunch to it. The more I listened to it, the more MERCYFUL FATE came to mind on certain tracks. Fortunately without KING DIAMOND like wailing.

about

From the moment we are born, we begin to die.

With the release of their third album, Elliott’s Keep returns in full force, delivering their signature melding of the divine and the damned. Metal doom, laden with thrash, progressive and blackened death elements -- lyrically taking the listener on epic journeys through tales of grief, retribution and introspection.

CDs for sale at Brainticket.com, Amazon, CD Universe, CD Baby and other online vendors.

"... the new album is a CRUSHER!!! Good job lads ... You guys are true TROOPERS of metal!!"
John Perez - Solitude Aeturnus

"‘Nascentes Morimur’ is a triumph of tight, epic thrashy doom metal, delicately balanced halfway between Slayer and Solitude Aeturnus (the latter being an obvious comparison, as fellow Texans, but legitimate nevertheless). Elliott’s Keep have a sound and style that’s all their own; a Cerebral Fix for the 2010′s....‘Nascentes Morimur’ is a masterful effort that is sure to win a place in the hearts of all trad and epic doom fans."
Doom Metal Heaven

"Some metal isn’t doom, some doom isn’t metal, but Texas trio Elliott’s Keep play doom metal, and make no mistake."
"Interesting… quality doom … five-years on from their first record, Elliott’s Keep are able to bend their sound to their will. They’re the masters of their own fate."
theobelisk.net

"...they travel the trail out of Necropolis ... men wielding weapons forged by different style smiths. Black metals, death metals, doom metals are within grasp." " ... titan strong. It's built to last, which is notable in and of itself, and absolutely incongruous with modern trends." "It can follow the Solstices and lonely Aeturnuses, it can light the wick of the same emotions stirred by autumnal Leifs turning color."
Last Rites

Track Name: Days of Hell
DAYS OF HELL

Amidst beauty and bounty
The betrayal was inevitable
Yet disturbing nonetheless
And of what effect are my prayers

Quod me nutrit me destruit

Simple concepts that shall never come to be
Words I cannot say aloud
Thoughts that will not relent
Torture that inequitably burns my soul

Scars layering and pain unrelenting
Spirituality and heresy
Seasons of irony a moment of clarity

Monuments of doubt

Malevolent blooms and thorns
Bitter springs eternal
Anthems of the apostate belay hopes of fools

Paradise denied
Paradise denied me
I am afflicted
Terrors and nightmares
Paradise denied
Paradise denied me
I am tormented
My dreams and despair

My days of hell in the Garden of Eden

In this idyllic garden
Promises and poisoned fruit
With each sunrise and setting
The serpent mocks and laughs

Quod me nutrit me destruit

Man placed eastward in Eden
Chaos spawned in consequence
Demons savage those I love
I bleed alone

The heavens and earth accomplished
Majesty resplendent and yet I
Drink again from fount of disappointment

Monuments of doubt

Inane thoughts and futile rituals
Cascades of hypocrisy
Hopelessness and festering wounds

Paradise denied
Paradise denied me
I am afflicted
Terrors and nightmares
Paradise denied
Paradise denied me
I am tormented
My dreams and despair

My days of hell in the Garden of Eden
Track Name: Now Taken
NOW TAKEN

A kiss that lingers in memory
The sound of nothingness
And smell of sunshine
Unsustainable

Deepest loss I am unable to bear
And my control denied
Grief-stricken, I acquiesce
With consequence acknowledged

The things that matter to me
What I love defines me

Eram quod es
I was what you are
The seduction of blasphemy
And the sex of it all

I cannot cry anymore
But I remember our music
Do you hear it now?
Will you dance and sing?
Or will our hearts both bleed black
Forever

Sin in sunlight
You, now taken
Damned, in defining instance
Unremorseful

Choice echoes for eternity
I embrace the tragic
Beauty damned to darkness
Hell pulses through me

The things that matter to me
What I have done defines me

Eris quod sum
You will be what I am
The seduction of blasphemy
And the sex of it all

My thoughts
In conversation
With the night
The one never truly mine
My conscious disregard
My contempt

And I betrayed love
I betrayed your love

Looking into your eyes
Knowing forever
Is of my choosing
Eternal anguish
And I am forever
Unrepentant

And I betrayed love
I betrayed our love

My sin
Your fate
Now you are damned
And it matters not to me
Track Name: Feanor's Bane
FEANOR’S BANE

This I do for those I love

We forge for the Lord of Gifts
But smiths in secret
Vilya Nenya a Narya

Three for the greatest
For the fairest
Free from corruption
And from influence
Track Name: Regicide
REGICIDE

The bell tolls again as hope is
Consumed by hopelessness
From the streets of plague
A chorus of windswept curses

The kingmakers in shadows
Communion of intrigue
An implacable vanguard
Patient, immutable will

Regicide
The kingslayer
Begets your doom tonight

Endeavor to kill the king
Best kill the king

Rites of politics and liturgy
Chalice of retribution
Blessed by the oracles
Exacted in recompense

Soulless assassin
Sharpens and poisons his blade
With measures of liquid courage
Descends into dark thoroughfare

Regicide
The kingslayer
Begets your doom tonight

Now, your moment of reckoning
You impotent coward
Your power cannot save you
You sadistic bastard
I introduce you to suffering
Delivering your judgment
You gave no mercy
Now, there is no mercy for you

And the sword falls down
Track Name: Tale of Grief
TALE OF GRIEF

Túrin drove his blade to the hilt
In the belly of the mighty Glaurung
Falling, his flesh burned by blood
Farewell
O twice beloved
A Túrin Turambar
Turún’ ambartanen

Master of doom
By doom mastered
O happy to be dead
Dying, the dragon reveals his curse
Nienor, daughter of Húrin, here is your brother
In horror and anguish, she lept to her death
Farewell
O twice beloved
A Túrin Turambar
Turún’ ambartanen

Master of doom
By doom mastered
O happy to be dead
Stirred from darkness
Túrin set the hilts upon the ground
And cast himself upon the black blade
Farewell
O twice beloved
A Túrin Turambar
Turún’ ambartanen

Master of doom
By doom mastered
O happy to be dead
Upon his tombstone, the Haladin wrote in the Cirth of Doriath:
TÚRIN TURAMBAR DAGNIR GLAURUNGA
Beneath that, they also wrote:
NIENOR NÍNIEL
Though her body
Could not be found
Track Name: Convergence
CONVERGENCE

Awakened
To realities not my own
Reflections of choice and consequence

Alternate paths intersecting
In a room of familiar strangers
Draining bourbon as the melody plays

Indescribable
The meeting of oneself
Over and over again

Events and decisions that changed us all
Now I reflect in affirmation
And pain of deepest regret

Curiositas
Desiderium
Convergence
Contentus
Concilio
Convergence

What is and
What might have been
Questions now answered

Bittersweet
This surreal encounter
Impaling irony and perspective

Once again this night
We are intertwined
My wounds rip open again

Indescribable
The meeting of oneself
Over and over again

There but for the grace of god
There by his wrath I suffer
And yet here I dwell

Curiositas
Desiderium
Convergence
Contentus
Concilio
Convergence

What is and
What might have been
Questions now answered

Drunken, I pass a mirror
And catch my reflection
I return to look deep into my own eyes
And meet myself there
Track Name: Omen
OMEN

The sky is blood and flame
The omen foretelling that all is changing again

Ancient evil resounds
Resonance of prior pain
The ebon shadow falls far

Sigils and ceremonies
Ominous black skies
Winds of change brutally cold

My cup of grief overflowing and
Tonight I cannot drink again

Vita detrimentum
Perditio amissio damnum
Dolor morsus patientia

Portent threatening and disquieting
All is changing again
Bleakest augury and divination
All is changing again
The omen foretelling that
All is changing again

Tidings delivered by demons
This most disturbing unease
As the crimson horizon menaces
Fear and uncertainty burning

Upon the death
Of magic and religion
Seasons change again

In silent moments of
Dread and lamentation
Winds of change brutally cold

My cup of grief overflowing and
Tonight I cannot drink again

Vita detrimentum
Perditio amissio damnum
Dolor morsus patientia

Portent threatening and disquieting
All is changing again
Bleakest augury and divination
All is changing again
The omen foretelling that
All is changing again

And what brings tomorrow?
And what more can I bear?
So tired
Track Name: Gates Beyond
GATES BEYOND

Perhaps we were not meant
To live so long

The gates beyond
Must be open tonight
It is as it was

Pain now abstracted
Yet at these times
You are with me

Delusive visions
I turn and see
For one moment

Quiet accedence
Enduring memories
Comfort beyond death
