Cremation Music and Lyrics by Shadow Windhawk Here I lie On a bed of straw I hear her cry Underneath cold skin Where my love lies My heart is dead Abandon hope Close the casket The flames are starving Embrace the fire With dream stained tears The hands are turning past these ghostly years These ghostly years And I'm broken I'm broken I'm broken I'm broken Again

"Box Five" Music and Lyrics by Shadow Windhawk some days my mind is blurred by this haze of madness and when I sleep below long nights reveal a world that’s heartless but when my tears are dried away all that’s left are parts of me pieced back together incomplete oh sweet Christine, please sing for me sing for me as we wander through the cellars a mile below the earth wrapped in silk and grave dirt this Phantom love still longs to be and in my heart I feel her sing hands to the organ, strike the keys look what man’s hatred did to me I am a monster that you fear those whispers that you breathe that you breathe as we wander through the cellars a mile below the earth wrapped in silk and grave dirt this Phantom love still longs to be and in my heart I feel her sing hands to the organ, strike the keys look what man’s hatred did to me I am a monster that you fear those whispers that you breathe discord notes, impassioned tone the ravaged pain that paints my soul as we wander through the cellars a mile below the earth wrapped in silk and grave dirt my Phantom love still longs to be and in my heart I feel her sing hands to the organ, strike the keys In box five I’ll always be In box five where my love dreams I am the whispers that you breathe In box five I hear her sing For me.

Curse of Thorn Music and Lyrics by Shadow Windhawk. black candles burn around us in the sacrifice the stench of blood upon the floor her eyes burn into mine bleed away, bleed away by this sharpened blade bleed away, bleed away we grant the gift of death and rage alright black candles burn around us in the sacrifice the stench of blood upon the floor her eyes burn into mine I am a hollow vessel my human form, forever feigned I bear the mark of Thorn and they call me The Shape I am a hollow vessel my human form, forever feigned I bear the mark of Thorn and they call me The Shape The Shape we are the guards in shadow constellations guide our way bring forth the cursed child on Halloween, he’ll claim his place bleed away, bleed away by my sharpened blade bleed away, bleed away take now these gifts for death you’ll pray I am a hollow vessel my human form, forever feigned I bear the mark of Thorn and they call me The Shape I am a hollow vessel my human form, forever feigned I bear the mark of Thorn and they call me The Shape on Halloween, die by this blade a cursed one, a star-bound slave death has no name, but they call me The Shape death has no name, but they call me The Shape on Halloween, die by this blade a cursed one, a star-bound slave death has no name, but they call me The Shape death has no name, but they call me The Shape The Shape

House of Dark Shadows Music and Lyrics by Shadow Windhawk. the storm surrounding casts dark shadows in the sky her screams spill forward with the volume of the tide hollowed out these open wounds that still bleed softly two centuries I’ve cried for you my hands are black with all these stains though the years have been unkind my body will not age the cold inside me paints the story of two lives torn into violent halves one enslaved, one made to die In a fit of agony, I cried when the witch cursed me Angelique has sealed my doom my hands are black with all these stains and though the years have been unkind my body will not age this haunted earth we walk upon we walk upon this tortured blood that I crave blood that I crave this hateful world I feed upon this hateful world freed from the ancient graves in the old house, I’ll wait for you in the old house, my heart forever doomed in the old house, I’ll dream of you in the old house, I’ll wait for you the ghost who loved me I'll wait for you the ghost who loved me I'll wait for you the ghost who loved me I'll wait for you the ghost who loved me...

Graveyard Shock n' Roll alright they’ve risen from their graves in pain Trioxin spawns re-birth, beneath the burning cemetery rain longing hunger in their eyes and I’ll try to run and hide if the dead don’t find me first, I will survive I'm back from the grave and ready to party beyond these gates we play forever rotting graveyard shock n’ roll inside the chapel where I wait Tina screams in terror at my homicidal zombie rage streaks of blood smeared on my face nuclear heat wave comes to cleanse the human race from time and space I’m back from the grave and ready to party beyond these gates we play forever rotting woah-oh graveyard shock n’ roll woah-oh, woah-oh-oh woah-oh, woah-oh woah-oh, woah-oh-oh woah-oh, woah-oh woah-oh ohhhhh graveyard shock n’ roll… Shadow Windhawk © 2016.

Mae Music and Lyrics by Shadow Windhawk. I’ve lived in darkness for so long my eyes can only see in the night that loves me I’ve killed in shadows all these years this love I know is cold and stained but in your eyes my heart has changed near dark I can feel in my veins somewhere near dark where the godless ones will reign forever near dark I’ve lived in darkness for so long thought my spark had ceased to be but your fire still walks with me beyond the walls of sleep, in dreamless death we lie our hands are intertwined as the sun begins to die near dark I can feel it in my veins somewhere near dark where the godless ones will reign forever near dark my blood for you forever is our love in death my blood for you one kiss before that final breath I’ll always be here…. somewhere somewhere somewhere somewhere...

about

Reviews for "Cremation Garden":

“Shadow Windhawk doesn't care what you think horror punk should be, he's too busy re-defining it on "Cremation Garden.” - Rue Morgue Magazine, June 2016.

"A beautifully haunting rock n' roll album with horror inspirations, including Dark Shadows and the touching "Sleep" dedicated to the late great Roddy Piper; Cremation Garden spins a stirringly macabre story as Shadow Windhawk travels the music spectrum - from the punk rock anthem "Graveyard Shock n' Roll" to the stunning ballad, "Mae". - HorrorHound Magazine, July 2016.

“..."Cremation Garden" serves to further cement Windhawk as a force to be reckoned within the horrorpunk scene.” - Dread Central, Sept. 2016.

“With "Cremation Garden", Shadow Windhawk has proven what many of us have known for quite some time: he is an absolute force to be reckoned with when it comes to the horrorpunk genre. This is a man who eats, sleeps and breathes horror, and that love comes through on every single track of this album." - Tom Holland's Terror Time, June 2016

Ranked #2 of the 5 horror punk bands to look out for in 2016 by Dread Central - June 2016.

“The band brings a haunting tone to the music scene with Shadow Windhawk's own signature vocal style.” - HorrorHound Magazine, March 2016.

“In everything he does, Windhawk strives to take horror punk to audiences outside of any specific scene. You might say that he's emphasizing the 'punk attitude' in horror punk.” - Rue Morgue Magazine, June 2016.

“While the Misfits' influence can still be felt in the album's hooks and Windhawk's "woah-oh" croon, the sheer number of other styles that Windhawk brings out indicates that he's more than just another devilocked clone - from the brooding, heavy metal dirge of the Halloween 6-inspired "Curse of Thorn", to the bouncy 80s rock guitar on "Sleep", and "Mae", a gloomy acoustic homage to Near Dark with a sound reminiscent of both old-school power ballads and gothic rock.” - Rue Morgue Magazine, June 2016

“Do you like sex with death?”. “Yeah, so fuck off and die!”. Using one of the best (and rather underrated) quotes from the 1985 punk rock zombie classic Return Of The Living Dead, Graveyard Shock N’ Roll picks the pace back up, and doesn’t bother even attempting to relent in the slightest. This seems like a track that Windhawk was destined to write and perform. Not only is it the strongest track on "Cremation Garden", but it stands up there with the aforementioned Midian and 1428 as the greatest track to come out of Shadow Windhawk‘s twisted mind and talent.” - Tom Holland's Terror Time, June 2016

“With no doubt whatsoever, "Cremation Garden" is in my view the best album that Shadow Windhawk has created to date.” - The Dog's Space, May 2016

“Since dropping on the scene, Shadow Windhawk's solo work has been on fire giving nods to the past while doing his own thing gaining fans worldwide. "Box Five" takes what we heard on Casket Spray and the "Never Dead" single, expanding beyond that while leaving you wanting more.” - Jekyll A. Hyde, May 2016

“Right from the first notes of Intro - Cremation, you get that familiar feeling of meeting with an old friend. Shadow Windhawk has always had a unique sound all his own, especially with his one of a kind vocal style, and that is what drives the new album. Windhawk pays tribute to The Phantom Of The Opera with Box Five, the first full song on the album, and it’s one hell of a way to blast the album off.” - Tom Holland's Terror Time, June 2016
