Graven Baltimore, Maryland

Formed in the Summer of 2010, we wanted to branch off of what we were doing with our previous musical endeavors. Frankenstein was recreated and re-resurrected and here we are. No boundaries. Creativity comes from everywhere and all sources. At the end of the day, we really just want to cave your head in. In our own original way. We are GRAVEN. We split eardrums and make no apologies. Sorry. ... more

Track Name: The Void
Last Breath
Tired bones
Bruised skin
Blood loss from gaped wounds
Death march
Last Breath

Lost hope
Mute voice
Crooked smile of shamed defeat
Wither now
Golden deeds
Man defiled

Fallen the words of silence

Come home

Fear the light
Sleep now
Track Name: The Stygian Order
Blackness reigns as prophets sing
Damned rejoice on cloven hoof

This is the way
The path of pain
That leads to destroy
Righteous hand is numb

Forgive the fallen

Dying glazed eyes
Exhaled dead soul
Embraced by soil

Penance of man is stillborn in tombs

Fork of tongue
Kiss of death
Shrouded veil
Horns of war

Burning, flesh of the pure
Darkness, drowns the light inside

And all that remains, is the gasp of masses.

Rise up. Rise and burn.
Track Name: Imperialist
The mouths of dead sewn shut.
To place the hand inside.

The strings show signs of wear.
With limbs to place the blame.

Dance of shadow hands.

Control rising.
Acceptance failing.
Willing defeat.

Take the will of man and run.

This is not the end.

Cut the string.
Break the fall.
Track Name: Utopian Womb
Heeding a liars embrace
Solace in the void
Walls begin to fall

Sin creates the belief
Breach through the rift
A true natural death

Blood that's shed. Devours the host. The cancer spreads.

Matron of death, dines with flies.

A warm grave signals the end.

The failed test of this mortal coil, rests now, in a river of blood.

A warm grave signals the end.

Cut out, in her arms. In a blanket of sorrow. Severed ties allow wings to break, and skies will part.

And when all of the veins have been tapped.
And when all the veins been...
Track Name: Sacrifice Of The Common Man
Choke on others remains
To spit it for a time
A snake for the cause
Stench of perfect decay

Awake, the breath of dying souls.
Will, lay this head to sleep.

To fall, an honest heart will bleed.
Beyond, a blank hole stare of night.

Choke on others remains
To spit it for a time
A snake for the cause

Torn, the drone is forced to feed.
Above, the fat ones count the screams.

Now, the clock begins to slow.
Yet, the hunger seems to burn.

Blood of the children
Scars of their makers

Flesh for wasting
Blessed by fire

With raised hands and soft words.
Reach out, land upon deaf ears.
To bow heads and clench teeth.
To place ropes on throats of helpless.
And hang slow by rising sun.
Hang slow

All for the blood of the children.
