Death Came Through a Phantom Ship is the second full-length studio album by the Dutch symphonic black metal band Carach Angren, It was released in 2010. This album tells the legend of a ghost ship (an interpretation of The Flying Dutchman) from its beginnings. While a wide variety of interpretations of The Flying Dutchman legend exist, the band says that the album is based on the Dutch interpretation of the story. However, they took some creative liberties with it to make it a more horrifying story.
The album is capped off with a very atmospheric chilling piano piece and violin and slow metal passage playing against the sound of strong wind blowing through sails, creeking of wood, and water lapping against the bow,conjuring the image of a deserted sailing ship wandering lost and unmanned,tainted by death, as it sways through the dark stormy sea.
Record/Vinyl + Digital Album. 2LP Reissue on black vinyl Includes unlimited streaming of Death Came Through a Phantom Ship via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. CARACH ANGREN will take you to the hell of war with their mind blowing third full-length "Where The Corpses Sink Forever". With bold strokes of eerily shimmering and whirring guitars, scratching dashes of fiercely rasping vocals, dabs of precisely rattling drums and a wide palette of grey and black sound hues, the trio creates dark portraits of supernatural landscapes.
And the whole album Death Came Through a Phantom Ship is a testimony that the band really knows how to bring their music with these ingredients into real musical-theatrical orgy. The album flows in a spirit of sailors’ stories and is almost soaked in salt water and blood. Except of the intro which works much more like an apetizer for a sinful feast (which this album really is) than a real song, every song is inspired by sailing, black sea and, of course, death. None of these components are anything new in metal, but in this case I must say that it is something like I’ve never heard before.
and the Consequence Macabre. Album Death Came Through a Phantom Ship. and the Consequence Macabre Lyrics. He came home with trembling bone and spoke: "Evil roams the sea!" I caught a glimpse of something I describe as witchery. They must think I am weird. My wife and daughter upset by What they hear. As we go to bed, I kiss my loves goodnight Then close my eyes to forget. Soon a lucid dream! The room Around me shifts into a bleak and dismal scene.
