about

The band formed in 1991, released 3 albums and toured Europe, US and Canada and made a large impression with their unique take on Doom metal for more than 10 years. Things were going well but as half the band also played in the highly successful The Kristet Utseende and family and kids took the rest of focus, the band slowly faded into obscurity.
What made LHS special was their combination of hard riffs, dark melodies and Mariana Frykman’s dark and beautiful voice. Being one of the early metal band with a female vocalist their influence has been largely overlooked and their cult following have grown lately.
The band have been resurrected for very successful local gigs several times, but it was not until Erik and original guitarist Joakim became neighbors that things starting to really happen. Suddenly they found themselves writing songs in Erik’s basement and soon Peter and Mariana happily joined in.
In secrecy they recorded this new album and now we are proud to present - Through the mourning woods. An updated version of LHS sweet nightmare that combines sounds from their early doom days and goth elements of their later days and puts it all in a new context.
Later this year, there will be another release from the band – a compilation of previously unreleased tracks from their close to 30 years.

Track Name: Blessed Be My Fallen Angel
Blessed Be My Fallen Angel

In the fall and the return of winter
Your witches fly above me
Black crow delivering
How could you even know my name?

I could easily show you
The failing, fading ghost and all
Godspeed in the temple
If I could only reach you high enough

Blessed be my fallen angel
Princess of the night
Blessed be my fallen ways
And all the years gone by

She waits by the cold light
And chant for the loneliest of minds
I won’t even show you what it ment to me
Not for this looking glass of old

In all the ways I could torture you now
It’s even better than the walls I had to break out from
For all the times you were torturing me I would kill you again
But not expose my name to God

Blessed be my fallen angel
Princess of the night
Blessed be my fallen ways
And all the years gone by

In the songs and the words you fake
It’s all over now, even though you tried
I would be bleeding just to show you the pain
But all my years they have burnt dry
I reach you now in this flaming awe
Deep down you know, how could you even survive?
Track Name: And Time Went By
And Time Went By

A faded dream alive
It will be sad but relieve the mind
Have we all become crucified?
Our flesh and blood is ours to try

I creep inside through your window
I cut your wrist to the bone and beyond

In times we cry
To ask you for someone to heal you whole
And time went by
To save you this once

On a frozen night
A fatal cold that breathes inside
Trouble frames the healing sky
I rinse the blood off and the the pain well tried

I creep inside through your window
I cut your wrist to the bone and beyond

In times we cry
To ask you for someone to heal you whole
And time went by
To wake you up just for this once

Why won’t you wake me up?
Why won’t you wake me up?

In times we cry
To ask you for someone to heal you whole
And time went by
So please wake up just for this once

In times we cry
To ask you for someone to heal you whole
And time went by
To wake you up
Track Name: Return The Sun
Return The Sun

Your eyes are cold
It hurts me so to see you die alone
Your shadow is a mask
She isn’t coming to the holy dawn

Winter chills my bones
The gentle warmth of your flare
You perish alone, my rancid rose
Like flowers on the grave

Return the sunlight to my world
Shine on everyone
Return the sun to my world
And let the roots to branches grow
Ignite the sunlight at the end of my world

The seas of the earth
Lie before this empty shore
If you read it in the stars
I’ll reach the shore, if you reach for the sky

Return the sunlight to my world
Shine on everyone
Return the sun to my world
And let it shine on everyone

Gazing into the light
Your eyes are universal
Please return to this world
If the sunshine will fail
The fading light will go away

Return the sunlight to my world
Shine on everyone
Return the sun to my world

Let the sunshine light you up now
Light the cold night up
Let the rose die ’cause the growth has gone wild

And let the roots to branches die
Ignite the sunlight at the end of my life
Return the sun
Track Name: The Bleeding Heart
The Bleeding Heart

Reaching out for the faded ones
Decadent dreamers are all lying with a gun
I’ve escaped my whole life to get rid of love
I wouldn’t dream to leave you but now the mourning is gone

I’ve been searching for someone to rely on
Gave my love to anyone
But they seem to break my heart

I ask for no one cause the dreams are all gone
Had enough of old woes and the bleeding heart
I wish for no one to redeem my soul
I search your name in the cold light when the rain has gone

I’ve been searching for someone to depend on
Doze my head in a bottle full of alcohol
It breaks my heart

I’ve been searching for something to deny
I couldn’t take it no more
’cause it seems to break my heart

To drunk to forget, to make my head explode
Tried to burn out the memories you wired inside my soul
A wide awake nightmare ripped my heart in two
Had to break these chains and build myself anew

I’ve been searching for someone to rely on
Gave my love to anyone
But they seem to break my heart

I’ve been searching for something to deny
I couldn’t take it no more
’cause it seems to break my heart
Track Name: Stillborn
Stillborn

Blinded by the sun
We try to find our sight
In a world left to die
We cough the dust and try to heal

And I feel so dead inside
I feel so dead inside

Watch the moon above
See it turn to gold
A light fills up this empty void
As we fall down upon the ground

Hear our minds weep heavy with rain
The longest hour ever awaits

And I feel so dead inside
I feel so dead inside

Hear our minds weep heavy with rain
The longest hour ever awaits
Numb from sickness to ease the pain
Stillborn in life, reborn in death
Again and again

And I feel so dead inside
I feel so dead inside
Track Name: Fields On Fire
Fields On Fire

On this evening all her grace comes forth
Wakes the fever in your fortunate eyes
I’ll be facing you when night turns to day
Are you afraid of the dark in your waking hours?

As the daylight dies
Slow burning, fading now
And you close your eyes
Leave all your pain behind

All their smiles are forced and false with hope
Witching schemes in your hidden disguise
I will see you on the darkest of days
When the trees and the plants and all the fields are on fire

As the daylight dies
Slow burning, fading now
And you close your eyes
Leave all your pain behind
If you travel with wolves
Slow burning fields on fire
Through the mourning woods
Burn in your harvest

In your mind your crown is strong and nevermore you wear it in vain
In the distance I can see your face, it’s old and ridden with pain
Paint the roses on my grave for you when I go my ways are unknown
And the tragic opus made up for my play is written in stone

In defiance calling the frost of my youth
I made angels from the fires you gave
Won’t be dreaming of sorrow and pain anymore
Look beyond your skin and into your soul

As the daylight dies
Slow burning, fading now
And you close your eyes
Leave all your pain

In your mind your crown is strong and nevermore you wear it in vain
In the distance I can see your face, it’s old and ridden with pain
Paint the roses on my grave for you when I go my ways are unknown
And the tragic opus made up for my play is written in gold
