DORMANT




BAND NAME: Dormant
GENRE: Unblack Metal with Atmospheric/Folk Influences
STATUS: Unknown
LOCATION: Netherlands (Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht)

Formed in 2005.

It seems the project used various logos. Here are the titles of these logos, according to Myspace:
Top: 1) Ry
Middle: 1) Fetus; 2) Unblack
Bottom: 1) Ry; 2) D
... Although the top image isn't actually referred to as a logo, it appears to be used as a logo in certain places, so....? Anyway, all logos here, when viewed in full size, are the original resolution found on Myspace.

About the name, Nain-Usar says,
"I did not choose the name Dormant for any deep reasons, I just liked (and still like) the sound of the word. Although it practically means the same as asleep, it has a more brooding, potentially explosive thing to it." (see interview link below)

Lineup:
Franc "Nain-Usar" Timmerman (Wildoomus, The Guilt, Gloom, Ancient Industry) - All instruments, Vocals


Discography:


Consolamentum (EP, 6 November, 2006, Son of Man Records)
Format: CD, limited 100 copies

Not sure why there are two versions of the artwork. Was there, perhaps, a 2nd release at some point?

Also, "Liefde was het" is a cover of a hymn. According to what I can find, it was originally written in English around 1890 as "O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus" by Samuel Trevor Francis, and later translated into Dutch.

1) Consolamentum
1:59, lyrics unknown

2) Den smale sti
5:00, lyrics unknown

3) Sylvan Chants Nocturnal
4:49, lyrics unknown

4) The Hunted
4:43, lyrics unknown

5) The Grievous Children
6:58, lyrics unknown

6) Dormant Souls
7:05, lyrics unknown

7) Liefde was het
6:26, partial lyrics:
Liefde was het, onuitputt'lijk,
liefd' en goedheid, eind'loos groot.
Toen de Levensvorst op aarde
tot ons heil zijn bloed vergoot.
Komt, laat ons zijn liefde prijzen!
God geeft vreugd' en dankensstof.
Eenmaal zingen wij voor eeuwig
in de hemel zijnen lof.

Rijd als Heerser door de velden,
Jezus in uw grote kracht.
Niets, niets kan U tegenhouden,
zelfs de hel niet met haar macht.
Voor uw naam, zo groot en heerlijk
zinkt de vijand weg in 't niet.
Heel de schepping, Heer, zal beven,
als zij U, haar Koning, ziet.
(NOTE: There is a 3rd verse, but I can't find it right now.)


Sorg - White Metal Compilation Vol. II (2007, label unknown)
Format unknown
Not all track lengths are known, but apparently the total album is 1:04:23
 
12) Dormant - Enmity 4:54

(artwork
not
available)

Alchemy (album, NOT SURE IF RELEASED)

Planned to be released in the summer of 2007, but after Son of Man Records closed earlier that year, plans had to be changed. Also, apparently, it was originally planned to be an EP, but according to the interview above, it was later turned into a full album. It's currently unclear if this ever ended up being released.
Tracklist unknown.

There is an "experimental demo" listed on Myspace (just uses the golden "Ry" logo as artwork), with the tracks "Thrall in the Talons of Black Philosophy" (5:04) and "Enmity" (4:54). Also, on SoundClick, there are songs called "Under the Oath of Secrecy" and "Devoid of Anxiety" (track lengths unknown). Could these, perhaps, have been songs used on Alchemy??

Format: CD-R, limited 150 copies

This song was originally meant to be featured on an EP. However, a harddrive crash caused them to lose most of the music they'd recorded.. Only this one song survived, so they released it on a limited-edition single instead.

Features the song "Through Darkest Skies", a 1:34 sample of which was uploaded to Myspace. Apparently they [played this song live], (see [this video] too), the total song length being 6-7 minutes.

As far as I know, nothing was released under this name.

Below is an account of the band's history, apparently taken from their old Myspace page (before Myspace's format changed and their bio disappeared)

The text below is an abbreviated version, with only the most relevant/important details included. The entire biography can be read [here]. (Or [here] if that page disappears.)

Earlier Breno (Wulthus) felt the direction of forming a band Death / Unblack extremely Christian Metal with lyrics along with his friend Murilo colleague classroom. With the difficulty of finding members who really identify with the band they had the support of some local church where musicians attended, including where was the test site. .... 

1999 .. .. - [...] Wulthus know Evander (Arcanun) Drummer Band Maximum Pentecost, both have in common faith in God and the taste for Unblack Metal and then starts an alliance between Postumus Bands and Maximum Pentecost. Wulthus and Murilo solve rename the band to CLAMATORIUS - "one who cries out to God" and the style becomes Unblack Metal with Doom passages. ...... 

2000 .. - So one nostalgic Show takes place in Goiania with Banda Antidemon, Clamatorius makes his first appearance. [...] Around 30 people convert to the Lord JESUS ​​CHRIST this Show.

2005 .. - Due to issues of attitude, opinion and wear of some of its members the CLAMATORIUS out of business. Wulthus goes to the Burial sarkikos. Arcanun goes to Banda Eschaton. [...]

2007 .. - Some members commented on EVENT BAND BACK ONE DAY. MAYBE as a studio band, with the goal of recording a CD as an answer to everyone who admired or admire the work of the band. And above all extol him who is holy, loyal, Fair and True: LORD YESHUA HAMASHIA. [...] Finally, thank you to pray for the return of this Horde and that they are sure that Christ can resurrect dreams. grandly GOD bless you all!
