about

Viathyn Calgary, Alberta

Viathyn was formed in 2006 in Calgary, Alberta when brothers Tomislav and Dave Crnkovic joined forces with lead guitarist Jacob Wright. Having come from various influences such as thrash, melo-death, and power metal, they wrote a handful of early demo tracks to settle on an overall sound for the group. Alex Kot joined on bass in 2009. ... more

Track Name: Heathen Arise
The gallivanting hordes
Strike fear in eyes of men
Disciples of the faith
Cut down in thy name
Tomes that guide the blind
Blank pages to perceive
Your mind, your soul, your life
Conditioned to believe
Tyrant kings are born
And spawn glorified parades
But the hero that was forged
Is the hero that remains
Fall from grace and divine pageantry
Wasted days yield heathen fallacy
The unenlightened drift
No saviour has graced their souls
Awash among the crowds
The nights are long and cold
Tyrant kings are born
And spawn glorified parades
But the hero that was forged
Is the hero that remains
Buried dead, unearthed again
Unveil forgotten lives
Chaos rules among the fools
When the heathen arise
(Solo: J. Wright)
(Solo: J. Wright)
(Solo: T. Crnkovic)
(Solo: J. Wright)
Buried dead, unearthed again
Unveil forgotten lives
Chaos rules among the fools
When the heathen arise
Track Name: Sirenum Scopuli
Waves crash around me as my eyes
descend on the crimson sky
Smashed on the rocks, my ears bleeding
to your deathly lullaby
Weave me a tale, a release from this
prison of sand
Hopes of euphoria fuelled by the vices of man
Sing regality, breathe faith unto me
Blinding eyes reveal I'll never leave
Reigning deity, love eternally
These are the things you know I'll never see
Things that you'll never see
Fourteen months, a face crew on the seven seas
I'll sacrifice this life for all of your feast and light
All that once was ecstasy, a moment of
fleeting beauty is gone
All I know: Sirenum Scopuli
(Solo: J. Wright)
Never give in to my fate, man the ships at high tide
Oh but it is too late, your soul will forever be mine
A prisoner from the start, I pray reprisal is soon near
A fool betrayed by his heart, and now you
understand true fear!
You are a merchant of death
(Death bells are calling my name)
Nameless I'm bound to the black seas
Fall into trance by my voice
(Voices so shrill just the same)
Same as the countless before thee
Eternally you are blessed
(Blessed in your presence I bathe)
Bathe in your glorious charade
Down in your pulpit you stand
(Stand in my watery grave)
Grave is your fortune I'm afraid
Sing regality, breathe faith unto me
Blinding eyes reveal I'll never leave
Reigning deity, love eternally
These are the things you know I'll never see
Things that you'll never see
Fourteen years, a victim a fool to the seven seas
I gave my life: temptation, you made the best of me
All that once was ecstasy, a moment of
fleeting beauty is gone
All I've known: Sirenum Scopuli
Track Name: Through the Orchard
The puppetry of a weakened mind
Catharsis from my hands
As the worlds collide
It is I who pulls the strings now
Condemning one to forever seek
His golden fruit divine
But the orchard only runs for miles
With rotten apples and gritty smiles
Coveted regret
I sense she lied to me
Prophecy I set
Did she think I'd fail to see?
Guilt within these eyes
A thrilling chance but
Why does he feel nothing?
Why do I feel nothing?
I cast a stone into the lake of fire
Every skip desire to
Clear my mind, embrace a time
When rivers fill my oxen hides with wine
Truth beseeched, I'll never reach
But forever sing this
song of growth down orchard rows
Reanimate the life from which I hide
Evermore, through peace and war
But the lines that mark my face will never fade
They'll never fade
They'll never fade
I walk along the dividing path
Towards the elder tree
To one hand lies the harvest joy
To the other: misery
Climb into my arms
Upwards my neck cranes
Dance among the stars
One apple still remains
Pick it if you dare
A warning from the ancient ones,
The architects of all beneath the skies
One last poison apple to the bushel goes
'Till the cider flows
Clear my mind, embrace a time
When rivers fill my oxen hides with wine
This toxic brew serves to renew
I'll forever sing this
Song of growth down orchard rows
No matter where the path on which I stride
Leads me to, I'll hold it true
But the lines that mark my face will never fade
They'll never fade
Through the orchard of life my feet guide
From the trees grow the fruits of desire
These trials inspire tales of the wandering man
No map in his hands
Track Name: The Oracle's Prophecy
With sceptic eyes ablaze
The man, he walks the stage
The oracle awaits
Regaling of his fate
How can a man be free
If he is acting scenes
Pulled out from the script?
Rewriting of his life
(Solo: J. Wright)
Infallible and wise, Prophetic wisdom lies
Within her, the healer (or just a deceiver?)
Her shadow piercing gaze intoxicates my veins
With no chance to barter, my free will: a martyr
(Solo: J. Wright)
(Solo: A. Kot)
Rise noble son, you'll become the saviour of all man
It's destiny, fulfil your prophecy
Rise above your infamy where the sky
and earth unite
It's time
Head up high, arms out wide
Feel the earth, embrace the sky
Unclench a fist that holds the sorrow tight
(Solo: T. Crnkovic)
(Solo: J. Wright)
New ink on tattered page
This man exits the stage
The oracle has seen
And this man now believes
Of course a man in free
When re-enacting scenes
If spoken from the mouth Of a true deity
Infallible and wise, Prophetic wisdom lies
Within her, the healer (or just a deceiver?)
Her shadow piercing gaze intoxicates my veins
With no chance to barter, my free will: a martyr
Track Name: Blackened Woods
Cold winter night
The calm before the storm
Silent branches waving goodbye
As the day departs once more
I am of the roving man
My fathers name I bear as mine for all to see
Through the flames I seek the path
Of vengeance for his life
The ancient lore speaks of a line forlorn
Embrace the fateful day when the ravens fly
I bear the name of cursed kin
These blackened woods forgive my sins
(Solo: J. Wright)
Those bright lit days have been pulled from the skies
As I'm living my way through an absent man's life
The only things left to regret are the times
I thought I had
And the bards shall chant my name as
my flames lay waste to land
(Solo: J. Wright)
Branded, stealing lives in furious rage
Hunted, the beast behind my eyes
I have come
(Solo: T. Crnkovic)
(Solo: J. Wright)
Now carry my sword with care my son
Fall back from the light embrace the night
(Solo: J. Wright)
I bear the name of cursed kin
These blackened woods forgive my sins
You fear my name and what's within
These blackened woods forgive no sins
Track Name: The Twilight Haven
Every day, in my way, fear plagued my mind
The dark is gone, I hear the song, The piper's call
I clear the way, the path was made, it's far too long
In my veins, burning strong, here I may fall
The sound of their hooves on the leaves
A death toll heard only by me
Sweet poison, grant me a passage to hell
I turn from the cover of trees
And face which is wrought upon me
A stain to eradicate, night terror incarnate
Spawn by a lusting for blood
(Solo: J. Wright)
Two riders stand before me
I have belayed my fear
This world of pain and sorrow
Truly belongs to you
Your thread has been cut through
(Solo: A. Kot)
(Solo: T. Crnkovic)
(Solo: J. Wright)
I have been drawn to lands unknown
The call transcends my soul
Through black and moonlit shores
I'll fight to conquer all
The wind shall guide me home
To a place I call my own
The snow which paints the sky
A blanket which I rest all my fears tonight
Track Name: Frail Titan
Given to you this world so bright
Created all your truths and rights
I guide your path so safe
And bring you back through darkness
Though you mock my distant gaze
I'm only but a step away
Spew fervour from my maw
And pestilence from the sky
These shadows follow wherever you go
Their knives a glimpse away
I made this world of light
And now my darkness will reign
I'll crush whatever you hold true
Destroy the joy you never knew
My glare will paralyze the brave
My wrath will desecrate your grave
Immense I stand above as one
Poison the sea, swallow the sun
All this was brought upon by you
You had the key you never used
Take your breath
Fight for life
Bloodshot eyes
Now comes night
(Solo: T. Crnkovic)
(Solo: J. Wright)
I'll crush whatever you hold true
Destroy the joy you never knew
My glare will paralyze the brave
My wrath will desecrate your grave
Immense I stand above as one
Poison the sea, swallow the sun
All this was brought upon by you
You had the key you never used
(Solo: A. Kot)
These lands are bare without you
I see the colours drain
The calm has made a new home
And now we leave it far away
A new life so far away
So far away
Do I breath into breathless life?
Tears flow red, I'll cast away the night.
This new life, made by you
Keep all the light that I never used
Track Name: Canvas
Another stone left unturned
Confining silence of the
Earth undone
Listen to natures song
The cry of the fervent tones
Unbroken remembrance:
The final hand that life hath dealt to me
Paint my portrait with silence as my canvas
Swan song: a tempest, with silence as my canvas
At the crossroads now I stand
Ragged brush clutched in my hand
All the chapters, all the days
Azure birthed back to the greys
Waiting for the sign, the tapestry unwinds
Each note that bound the thread frees melody instead
Each memory 'neath my eye, a whisper on the sky
To hear secrets within just raise ears to the wind
Paint my portrait with silence as my canvas
Swan song: a tempest, with silence as my canvas
Another stone left unturned
Confining silence of the
Earth undone
Listen to natures song
The cry of the fervent tones
Unbroken remembrance:
The final hand that life hath dealt to me
Track Name: Antique Man
All your greed and shame
Turns gold into ash
Far from king of all
Your search is in vain
As time passes your life
You will feel the emptiness
Wounds heal, hands feel
But your eyes see nothing
On your knees
Far from hell
Frozen land
Now set free
Life finds its own man
To make history
In death it's written
w2hat this man will be
Now that time has left you
Emptiness is your world
Wounds heal, hands feel
But your eyes see nothing
On your knees
Far from hell
(Solo J. Wright)
I make my own path
Re-write history
No man will tell me
What I will be
