about

Syven Finland

Syven creates dark, heavy, primordial and even shamanistic music, where the driving force is the traditional Finnish string instrument, the kantele, accompanied by atmospheric synth layering, ritualistic percussion and heavy distortion where appropriate. We also employ a variety of vocals that range from low male choirs to growls to chanting and to shamanistic performances. ... more

II: Corpus Christi

He bare him up, he bare him down,
He bare him into an orchard brown.
In that orchard there was an halle
that was hanged with purpill and pall.
“Lully, lulley, lully, lulley,
The faucon hath borne my make away.”
And in that halle there was a bede,
It was hanged with gold so rede.
“Lully, lulley, lully, lulley,
The faucon hath borne my make away.”
And in that bede lieth a knight,
His woundes bleding both day and night.
“Lully, lulley, lully, lulley,
The faucon hath borne my make away.”
And by that bedeside there kneleth a may,
She weepeth there both night and day.
“Lully, lulley, lully, lulley,
The faucon hath borne my make away.”
And by that bedeside there standeth a stone,
”Corpus Christi” wreten thereon.
“Lully, lulley, lully, lulley,
The faucon hath borne my make away.”
“Lully, lulley, lully, lulley,
The faucon hath borne my make away.”
“Lully, lulley, lully, lulley,
The faucon hath borne my make away.”
Terra tremuit et quievit
dum resurgeret in judicio Deus


III: Renascentia

Misericordia (Mercy)
A Dhuw an Tas, kebmer mercy ahanaf,
A Dhuw an Mab, kebmer mercy ahanaf,
A Dhuw an Spyrys Sans, kebmer mercy ahanaf.
Arluth
Loreta Armoa!

Renascentia (new birth)
This song I sing
Doubt not its potency!
It started an age ago
In an ancient land, (Lyonesse)
Now lost under the sea...
Now my memory has faded,
Like my form.
Long ago I studied the mysteries
Entombed in granite,
Not a test for one such as I...
I soared on high,
a sharp eyed eagle!
I tasted the fire of making,
I became ash
Drifting on the winds of time...
I have wandered many worlds,
And have chanted aloud
The many names of the doorkeeper,
I know of the spiral path,
I have travelled there to other realms...
I sought my guide
In the solace of my dreams,
The Wildman taught me
The art of descent,
Moving in forests thought without form...
I reached out and touched
The inner world
Falling into life
I fragmented into oneness
I am truth and I am joy.
I am a walker
Between worlds,
My song is endless,
Endless and formless...


IV: Crucem Sanctam Subiit

Lapidem quem reprobaverunt edificantes hic factus est in caput anguli.
Alleluia.
Crucem sanctam subiit, qui infernum confregit, accinctus est potentiam, surrexit die tertia.
Alleluia.
