about

“Fragments of a Fallen Star” is an observation by Harrow, recorded during the Summer of MMXII.

We would like to thank: Andy Anderson for his unwavering support, Ray, Cody, Michael Schellenberg, Nate Myers, the Brickell family for their patience and use of space, Scott Schroder for words and inspiration, Michael Ostermann and Ryan Connors and of course Derrek and Jacob for helping carry us forward.

Noise and samples by Campbell and NASA’s Voyager probe over the moon Io.

"Fragments Of A Fallen Star is the aural equivalent of a DMT trip, rocketing from the moons of Jupiter through a dimensional portal to frosty northern forests, pagan rituals and medieval battlegrounds. Exemplary of music and lyrics in perfect alignment, Harrow’s genre-hopping sound scores an interstellar opera that subversively combines black metal’s traditional preoccupation with the mythic and fantastic with less common scientific and cosmic imagery. The usual suspects – serpents, swords and sorcery – people a heroic tale that also references DNA, space, and inter-dimensional travel while contemplating Carl Sagan-esque notions of cosmic unity and the single source origin of matter." - Cvlt Nation

Track Name: Keening
Lightgiver on the horizon
Baldr on his knees

I seek the darkness, do not seek the light
I do not seek the light
I do not seek your light
We seek the sky blackened by clouds of storm
We seek the drums that pound with the march of war

Atavistic reclamation is at hand
Track Name: Song of Seasons
Lords of winter
Hear my call
Lend me cold on this day
Cold

Lithic Lords of springtime
Hear my cry
Tell me why the enemy
Wishes all life to die

If my life should end today
By the sword or in the fray
In archaic dance of death
With a rope around my neck
I’ll return from whence I came

Lords of Summer
Give me storms
Pound your drums on this day
We march to war

Lords of Autumn
Your leaves do fall
In the month of October
You will hear my call
Hear the call
Track Name: If the Sky Falls, We Shall Catch Larks
Instrumental
