Halcyon Dawn is the first in the Halcyon Recordings compilation series. It features four songs by four bands which combine the sounds of black metal, post-rock and shoegaze. Although it was entirely self-funded and self-produced, the songs lack neither in quality of composition nor that of production. Influenced by black metal artists such as Alcest, Lantlos, Drudkh, Heretoir and Agalloch, the artists of Halcyon Dawn hope to further adapt and expand the post-black metal genre into a new, dynamic, and enlightening sound.

Track Name: This White Mountain - Call of Stars
These stars shine down upon us,
scoffing and revoking with judgmental glare.
Black, the night sky looms overhead,
fragmenting to abyss and crushing us as it falls.

Eternity has decayed,
leaving Fate in its wake.
She speaks of man's expiration.
Solemnly, but with serenity She grins.

Sinew falls from the empyrean
like ash from atop the Mount.
Our bodies, now dust in the cosmos,
litter incorporeal ground.

Detached from allowance of existence
humanity is swallowed to nihility.
Our bodies, now dust in the cosmos,
litter incorporeal ground.

Daemons exult
in man's passing.
The Sovereigns
exalt the Demise.

The Great Death accomplished
The End of the Contemptible Age
Daemons exult the passing.
Fate beams with assent.

The stars shine down no more.
Revocation comes to its ultimate close.
The black sky has turned to white.
Abysm has filled with Hope.

Eternity has itself renewed.
Fate abates to ease,
unwinding in her celestial chamber.
With contentedness she sighs.

The skies now bright
echo a mortal call
which ages to come shall heed
or realize their assured fall.
Track Name: Schillerndtag - Die Leere
Schwarze Steine
Mein Weg ist verloren
Kälte zwingt mich in die Knie

Ich blicke in den Himmel
Graue Wolken
Um mich und in mir
Verraten und geschunden

Mein Körper ist taub
Weißer Schnee
Ein Tanz der Geister

Die Welt erwacht
Noch bin ich nicht zerstört
Rotes Blut
Rinnt von meiner Klinge
Und ergießt sich auf den Boden

Der Tod ist meine Freiheit
Die Fesseln sind zerrissen
Ein lebloser Körper
Bedeckt von einem kühlen Laken
Schritte verhallen in der Ferne
