Before you go Give the stars a name The look on your face Did I dream again? I recall a time Was it January or July? Relinquished our love The grand offering Seven auras Deathly cosmos Speak to me In ways I've forgotten How perilous Your parting of seas Your worlds of woe What I'd give To have another warm night Turn around And ask me to dim the light It seems so simple Yet we don't know what to do So far away now All nights belong to you Rapture Last summer Remembering Deep within me Bring on the dawn Bring forth your flame And orchestrate the lashing In sequence of gloom After the drought I wrote a poem Upon the moon Do you sleep alone? Ouroboros Ghastly endeavour
In acclamation With fervent tongues You colonized me Through the arcane Through the debris Take down the photographs Listen The striking of the bell Listen The hissing of the snake Restless The earth pounds and shakes Restless The rivers of blood The choir wails We’ve come a long way A leaving song We didn’t know then We didn’t know then These secrets you keep Languid winter break And when you speak Charmed with the scripture Given to me Unveil future paths Loosen your hair And lay down your sword Cut the midnight hue Adorn the mantle-piece Cloak the visage of self Return to a former time And lo And hark The birds head south and onward Soaring acquisition
Of a place Of a time All roads lead To your eyes I was caught in a spell The seamlessness of your magic Draped your head with flowers At the onset of dusk Nothing will be the same The year comes around again Empyrean You run the water towel-less And governed all constellations Fluid gestures, weak knees Begin the communion I was entranced on sight The endlessness of your vessel Ascend to higher planes I am going home And night falls An ode to the lowly When I meditate Such silence ignites the void When we oscillate In worship of decline
The taste of song The skin of sea The pale of bones The shape beneath A photo of a river A song about the waves A woman spins inside her skirt On the floor of an abandoned stage A note inside a pocket I remember what it said Words that read like stains Oh, what is it that you meant? The taste of song The skin of sea The pale of bones The weight of me To discord To war And the heart, it rages on To land To sea Take me with you And you tread The earth and firmament No longer ours Language and working limbs There in the night Exalted, ruthless queen Old summer dirge Sing beneath the canopy Array of green So lush Do you concede? I was never yours Devoted to your darker work My blood leapt from the strangest place The shrillest of four arias Words rendered false in the garden Sorrow tipped its hat and fled You speak my name and no one wept Mystique woven in the moon’s cleft I bow my head and bid farewell In streams of relief I cup my hands An ocean overcome Won’t be the last (And it won’t... it won't be the last) To discord To war And the heart, it rages on To land To sea Take me with you To transcend To shore Usurp with golden thread To hail To return And unravel yet another myth

Hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, Constellatia is the collaborative vision of Gideon Lamprecht and Keenan Oakes, founders of well-known acts Crow Black Sky and Wildernessking respectively.

The Language of Limbs is essentially a post-metal record with black metal and progressive influences, and a healthy dose of ambience and atmosphere; always deeply engaging with a flair for the romantic and nostalgic. “It is a record that came from a place of desperation; a musical outlet for the years of hardship both members endured in their personal lives.” Gideon Lamprecht comments. “It’s an album about obsession and overcoming. It's a triumphant record.” adds Keenan Oakes.

Formed in September 2018, and enlisting the talents of a few key collaborators, Constellatia soon completed work on the beautiful and emotional ride that is The Language of Limbs. While the drums (Played by Lawrence Jaeger) and vocals were engineered by Daniel Thackwray at City Varsity, Cape Town, all other instruments were recorded by Lamprecht at his home studio in Glencairn, where he also mixed and mastered The Language of Limbs. The album features additional and high class guest vocalists, namely Alison Rachel of Honeymoan and renowned singer/songwriter Lucy Kruger, and will be an absolute Must-Have for fans of Cult of Luna, Opeth, Pink Floyd or Wolves in the Throne Room.
