Southern Gate of the Sun is about the irony of being killed inside the house of god amid your praying session because of stubbornness, to say it politely.

The real incident took place in Brescia, Italy in 1769 when a lightning
struck the church of San Nazaro detonating the 90 tons of gunpowder stored in there and claiming the lives of 3,000 faithful sheep while at the same time it left much of the city in ruins. Why the gunpowder was stored in the house of god I don’t know.

Why the church used no lightning rod that was recently invented and promoted by Benjamin Franklin I do though; the reason was that
many priests and churches back at the time refused to use any such tool as it would consist an action against god’s will. Lightning as much as all other natural phenomena believed to be god’s messages to humans.

Therefore by using a lightning rod they would only provoked god’s wrath further. Apparently god was not in a good mood that day. Fire he shouted and fire spitted without mercy.




Southern Gate of the Sun

Riders on flamboyant horses march
Golden horizon rises from dust
The best of servants play the kings
Descending epoch melts the rings

I know you come to see the light, I know you come; you arrived
The rays of light wash your way, towards the temple of fallen fame

Fire, I don’t believe a word they pray
Fire, I don’t believe a word they say

Thrown into lake of madness fraud
Trying to breathe and play the role
Servants wanted more and more
Stage full with bodies that fail to perform

The Slayerking

The Slayerking founded in late 2013 in a rehearsal room. They avoided any publicity until they officially set foot in the scene with their 2016 debut Sanatana Dharma.

Music is doom metal with progressive elements.

Sound is heavy but not compressed.

The Slayerking is a troll that thinks of itself as a King but it's only a Slayer who unremorselessly slays any hope morals have about salvation.
