Daphnea's Remains and the 2017 Tour

June 26, 2017

It's been a while since I wrote one of these... Since then, many things have happened.   Not your typical band stories like we replaced the bass player, guitar player, drummer and vocalist type bull shit, but family stuff & writing.   The biggest news we have is Joe got a haircut!  

 

It seems we've disappeared from the front lines, but for any of you that know us, this was on purpose.   The writing for our upcoming sophomore release, "A Murder of Crows" has taken precedence over our souls.   We are looking to hit thirteen songs for this release.

 

We currently have ten wicked new Crone songs that we are excited to unleash.   Some have been played live around the Sudbury area in the few (very few) shows we've done in the last 6 months, one being Mother Maiden Crone which I featured a couple of blogs ago. 

 

This time I have Daphnea's Remains to present to you.   This song is about a man who murders a girl and stands on trial.   He pleads his innocence by showing his insanity in front of the court room claiming her to be a demon and himself a righteous man doing the right thing for humanity.   I have an idea to make this a three part song.   The series will be called Wormwood.  Daphnea's Remains being Wormwood: Part One.   Which means we have to write at least 2 more albums.   I hope our fellow Cronians are okay with this.  

 

The lyrics to this one are as follows...

 

Her body lies down by the river,

Ice cold waters they shivered

Her body lies down by the river,

her soul remains to deliver

 

Following watershed to the coast,

Now that she’s given up the ghost

Her body lies down by the river,

Her soul remains to deliver

 

Your Honour…  I’ve been accused in the first degree

Of killing… Do you understand what it’s like,

to look down those sights.  It’s so fulfilling…

There’s more to her death and it’s so divine

A martyr… a malignant spirit… a faltered bloodline...

You all think it’s a crime but allow me to open your eyes

 

You may choose to disbelieve... my warning

My name is Wormwood... I am not a wormtongue  

 

You must see clearly... while you’re all in mourning

So listen closely... before you see me hung

She was a beautiful martyr... a warm blooded life

I shot her once... then I kissed her twice

She no longer smiled... which made me upset

I carried her dying body... so warm & wet

She never had a chance... never meant to be

She was possessed... I’m sure you’ll all see

I released her soul... and took her away her pain

I bathed in the blood... that sprayed from her vein

Her beauty and lust... was a spreading disease

Inamorata... to you she may have been

 

She couldn’t have carried…. all of your seeds

Temptress of the Night…. till I intervened

 

Her body lies down by the river, Ice cold waters they shivered

Her body lies down by the river, her soul remains to deliver

 

Your Honour…  I’ve been accused in the 1st degree

Of killing… Do you understand what it’s like,

to look down those sights.

It’s so fulfilling…

There’s more to her death and it’s so divine

A martyr… a malignant spirit… a faltered bloodline...

You all think it’s a crime but allow me to open your eyes

 

As for the rest of the summer, well I'm sure I'll have enough to talk about by the end.   We have more road trips!   We are playing in Red Lake Ontario in July for the Norseman Festival.... Yes, the Red Lake that's in the middle of butt #&%$ nowhere.   We did play Moonbeam last year and that kinda far out there as well.  We are also playing Oshawa at the Atria in August and River Valley Bash this year.   I'm sure I'll have enough incriminating Crone of War impromptu video by the end of the summer to make another goofy documentary as well as other cool live footage.   

 

For now, so long.... See you this summer at one of our many shows and keep your ears clean and ready to be eargasmed by "A Murder of Crows".
