Men of Gododdin

from Y Gododdin by The Wolves of Avalon

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    The Wolves of Avalon led by Metatron (The Meads of Asphodel) unleash their fourth album of atmospheric pagan metal 'Y Gododdin' joined by pioneering guests Venom Inc., Taake and Drudkh on a limited run of 500 black & white splatter vinyls.

    Advancing their journey through British history, 'The Wolves' ride with the northern Gododdin to depict the battle of Catraeth, one of the last conflicts of resistance against the Germanic settlers who massacred the Celtic peoples of what was to become England.

    This latest LP sees The Wolves of Avalon once again enlist allies from the Black Metal elite including Tony Dolan (Venom Inc), Hoest (Taake), Wulfstan (Forefather) Nico Millar (Aklash) and Ukranian black metal legend Thurios of Drudkh to battle through five brand new tracks by songsmith James J.M Marinos.

    Also lifted from the album arrives The Wolves of Avalon's first video single 'The shining company (feat. Thurios | Drudkh)' which will be released in November retelling the besieged realms of The Old North.

    The 'Y Gododdin' vinyl and accompanying digital version will be released this November 25th 2022 exclusively through Godreah Records.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Y Gododdin via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Feat. Hoest (Taake)


300 riders, men of Gododdin
Riding into legend, squadrons galloping
Apocalyptic steeds, trampling slain
Over grass and clover, hail and rain

Tatterdemalion, savage hordes
Saxon invaders, Rhineland whores
Wolves of Albion, joyous dead
Men of Gododdin, slaughters din
With murdering hands, come the war bands
Spilling guts, raping our lands
Cold blazing flesh, open silent eyes
Mute desolation, rising arrows falling

Faces deformed with masks of horror, shimmering in
A dusky malign, effigies of the dreamless dead

Drown in oblivion
Shit most foul, vomiting piss
Fucking hell, battle dazed
In rivers of clay, swift to be slain
Swifter to slay, freezing carnage
In mires drowning, blind ghosts of kings
Soulless abounding, meat for crows
Glutted yellow claws
Ripping open flesh, gaping maw

Lay on scattered bones
To be living ghosts
In the death-like air
Men of Gododdin

Beyond these leafless woods stand the men of
Carrion gods, bound to the whim of murder

Darkly depths, rueful wastes
Thronging pyres, aspiring blaze
Belching gore, baleful stench
Spouting filth, cleaving necks
Hammering rage, hacking heads
Mangled limbs, midst the dead
Trampled horns, shivering ice
Blood smeared, ashy pale

Lay on scattered bones
To be living ghosts
In the death-like air
Men of Gododdin

Dreams are forever just echoes from the grave
