the blackest gift lyrics

Finally decided to publish the lyrics for the songs.  Enjoy.

what have you wrought?
a miasma of chaos as affections diminish.
once we savored innocence,
virginal and childlike,
but your desire perished.
a vengeful morass of bitterness -
drops of blood follow night, follow hate,
love ground to dust.
in a haze of righteousness,
i reject you.

Heaven Shunned
Slender beams of light enter
this darkened prison as I kneel,
always supplicating, always somber,
frozen here,
Accusing forms wrought in panes of glass loom as
dust dances in the air,
forming an image in my mind,
reaving my shamed outstretched arms.
Realization dawning on a deathless face.
I raise my head, now kneeling before
this oblivious mortality.

Pulled Apart
the night falls with a silent sigh, soulless are we.
the emotion for which you lust
flares once, then dies,
smothered by a velvet ebon nothingness.
all hope must sicken and die.
your heart desires no more.
how could you tear us asunder?
our dark thoughts surround us, crying,
we have lost our way.

the blackest gift
It is a night of ethereal pain, a song of subtlety,
wolves vent their pain. The ethereal one
Curling wisps of death shrouds her brooding form,
a lurking wrath.
Her inky black hair cascades over
pale and tragic shoulders, and her
full deeply crimson lips part slightly, to taste the
soul streaming from the
pale flesh beneath

Now a night of ecstasy,
I thirst.

Around, all around, the shadows gather.
My dread grows as the angry hand of Heaven falls against my eyes.
It mutilates me, and darkly my
essence drips
to the cold, uncaring tombstones.
In unholy terror I cry out
while Death's shadow follows.
Now alone, my supplication falls upon howling eyes.
This is my doom

Website/Blog up and running ...

Yeah ... looks like we've got the website/blog up and running now ...

Our debut album, "the blackest gift" is listed in our Discography (only one album so far, dude ...)

We have a BIO!

We will have a contact section fully established soon, with email, etc.

LINKS to our fellow bands and other friends will be added soon ...

Don't panic, ... we'll get there soon.

We really got together as a band very quickly, managed to write some music and record our debut album very quickly (with the help of a friend who at this time wishes to remain anonymous - we honestly don't know why the guy didn't want any credit - maybe he'll explain soon), so this is all a bit new to us.  We've been in other bands before, but decided to pursue SUNset TZUnami as our sole project, because we really believe in it.

We may not become "Metallica-famous", but hopefully some recognition in the Central Massachusetts area will come our way, along with some gigs so we can crank this stuff out live.

Hope to see you at a local venue soon.


We're still very new, and in the process of getting our website/blog up and running, so contacting us will be a bit difficult.  Those of you who know us personally (friends, family, etc.), just get to us the usual ways, ya know?

We'll get an email address ready soon, and probably a Facebook page.

Until then, please hold tight.

Deac, Jaqc, Chris, Angelo

BIO / Band

SUNset TZUnami is:
Angelo Levi - guitars, vocals
Christopher Nix - bass, vocals
Deacon Morgan - synths, guitar, vocals
Jacqueline Blodgood - drums, percussion, synths

The origin of this band is simple, and probably much like many other bands. Four friends who are musicians are fans of similar genres of music, and want to create their own sound, based on those genres.

But these four really didn't make it easy on themselves. As fans of very extreme music in the metal realm, SUNset TZUnami chose to delve head first into the pit of despair known as drone-doom-metal, but did not want to limit their artistic goals. Instead, they chose to basically start at one end of the spectrum and add whatever-the-hell-they-felt-like-adding to the mix.

Sustained guitar and bass chords hover and loom as the drums plod and thunder their way, leading the charge for deep and resonant voices to enter the din and utter their lyrical protuberances amidst the drone of noise and wall of sound. Loud. Don't forget loud.

Really loud. SUNset TZUnami want you to swim in the miasma, and feel the deepening mush.

So dig in and dig deep.

Edit as of 08/28/2013 - so as you all now know - it's a "faux" biography for fictional members of the band.  It's really just me, Dimaension X.  As if you hadn't figured it out already anyway.

Debut Album - "the blackest gift" now available

We welcome you to the first (and very unstructured) post at the official website/blog of SUNset TZUnami.

We'd like to announce the availability of our debut album, "the blackest gift", ready for free download at:

We've tried to capture our influences (Sunn O))), Cathedral, Esoteric, Jesu, Khanate, etc.) and combine it all into our own cohesive dark and doomy sound.  We have chosen not to down-tune our guitars to R-Flat, instead sticking to more normal guitar ranges (Drop-D is as low as we'll go, for now...).

We tried to keep it pretty slow and doomy, with an actual groove and some metal riffing here and there.

We'll be adding more as we can to the blog, and make it a bit better looking.  Meanwhile, go download the album, get it burned to CDs or copied to your MP3 players and blast it!

Thanks - more coming soon.
Chris, Angelo, Deac, Jacq
