Updates 14 September, 2018

Unblack Archives will be updating less frequently over the next few days while I recover from a really bad ear infection. Prayers would be appreciated.

I know Bearded Dragon is working on a pretty big page right now. If he publishes that, though, that's probably all you're gonna see for the next few days. Usually at times like this, I'd go through and do a ton of "one-demo" bands because their pages take so little effort, but I'm so tired and weak, I don't even feel like I could do that right now.

I also probably won't be responding to emails for the next few days. I WILL GO THROUGH THEM AND MAKE UPDATES AS NECESSARY, just not right away.

Thanks for understanding

Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.
- Deuteronomy 31:6

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: ‘For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.’ No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord 
- Romans 8:35-39

SWORD OF HIS MOUTH


BAND NAME: Sword of His Mouth
GENRE: Raw Unblack Metal*
STATUS: Active
LOCATION: USA

*Note: Genre is subject to change. I'm still not 100% sure where I want to take this project yet. It'll be centralized around black metal, anyway, but I'm considering some noise and ambient, too.

"Formed" near the end of 2015. Only did stuff with it now (2018).
All music for this project (for the foreseeable future) will be recorded on a cellphone.
My recorder is broken and until I can fix it or get a new one, I'll be working on this.

Lineup:
Nocturnal Iridescence - All instruments, Vocals

Discography:


Reh. Demo (10 September, 2018, Independent)
Format: Digital / Bandcamp
Stream / Download (OFFICIAL)

Rehearsal demo.
I decided not to add the lyrics. I can't even understand half the lyrics anymore (I improvised them) and they're just... not that good. The idea of the lyrics is a wolf reflecting on its surroundings in winter, and criticizing the evil it finds in the world built by mankind.

1) I (intro / instrumental) 1:27
2) II 5:49
3) III 6:44
4) IV 10:21
5) V (outro / instrumental) 4:28

1) Anyone have the lyrics for these new songs? (The ones that aren't instrumental, obviously.) 2) Anyone have more info about the years this project was active? 3) I'm not 100% sure about "when" this project became Christian. It was somewhere around 2015, anyway. Are all of the releases here Christian? Are there any additional Christian songs that aren't mentioned here? 4) Does anyone have the official statement released by Boreas confirming Morbus Mundi's change in beliefs?
