Through the murdering night

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. Tony 'Demolition' Dolan (Venom Inc.)


Through the murdering night
Where graves of kings listlessly yawn
Into the pitiless hollow dark
Life fades and death is born

Through misery woods of spectral mist
Where wolves howl and vipers hiss
We ride on bloodless drifting shrouds
Unwinding into the unseen abyss

All for the madness of the gods
And the glory of dragon and blade
We Gododdin, 300 ride...
Under desolations drooping wings
Across pyres of bones and ash
Where eerie serpents lurk unseen

Galloping upon the burial grounds
Frost-flung and broken
To immortality fore spoken
Onwards, reapers of war!

Moans of when we die
Groans of when we cry
Bones that never sigh
Thrones of gods up high

Kiss your arse goodbye
It’s time to fucking die
War we glorify
Hear our battle cry!
