about

Panychida Plzen, Czech Republic

Founded in 2004 in the city of Pilsen, CZ, Panychida got inspired from old legends and different philosophical sources. Soon after recording the first album a contract with German FOLTER RECORDS was signed. During the years and after 2 full length and one EP, Panychida became one of the leading czech pagan/black/black´n´roll bands.
The new record "Grief for an Idol" takes it all one step further.

Track Name: Red Moon Rising (The Drink Offering)
(words by Vlcák)

we will ... drink the mead
in this dreamlike promised land
drink the mead
my dear friend

drink the mead
in our beloved land
drink the mead
till our glory´s end

we are passing through mountains
breaking storms, waves of snow whipping again
mighty hills jailed by frozen chain
grimly they rise, resisting frosty rain

we can hear quiet Vesna´s calling
we can see birch tree growing
we can feel, that forest is awaking
we are sure to be at the end of the journey

by our gods ... peace is broken
by our gods ... we will stand
by our gods ... we were chosen
to protect the promised land

my friend, the moon is glowing red
enemies born from western mist
Perun I swear, we´ll protect the land
many will die, but never kneel

and now we ... drink the mead
in this dreamlike promised land
drink the mead
my dear friend

drink the mead my dear friend
in our beloved land
drink the mead
till our glory´s end
Track Name: The Fire Worshipper
(words by Vlcák)

mountains of madness fret darkened sky,
deepest suffering of your mind ...

sprinkles of ice are piercing my eyes
winter drought to every bone rooted in
aeons ago frozen cold has cut my inner shield
son of man, fate of rich sacrifice

fight my friend when giants rise from the caves
light your fire when tyrants are at the gates
a tribute to our venerated elders
wonderful place on the warrior´s trail

the moisture of trees, their wisdom was drained
fire blazed up, glory was burnt
where wind blows, punishment is comming forth
I have touched the soil, break the lore

bleeding for a warm dime ...
every day curing wounds ...
until fire will return sun ...
statues shall see, when strenght returns to me

sprinkles of ice are piercing my eyes
winter drought to every bone rooted in
aeons ago frozen cold has cut my inner shield
son of man, fate of rich sacrifice

fight my friend when giants rise from the caves
light your fire when tyrants are at the gates
a tribute to our venerated elders
wonderful place on the warrior´s trail
Track Name: Flaming Forests
(words by G.H.M.)

flaming forests, set on fire
dreaming mind will fall lost
hidden in the cruel cold cave
under eternal rule of frost

above … on surface … they bleed ... under the noon sun
prisoner ... forever ... burning flesh … cursed by no-one

shadow … of the grace … being once … under the noon sun
entrapped (in) … narrow cave … wild mind … cursed by no-one

history saw him hunting beasts
deep in wild forests of countryside
escaped from the known world
searching the knowledge and then … something died

malice and cruel thoughts
finding wisdom of ancient times
natural powers returned to him
all-killing wrath …. under the… ground.

struggled mind, closed into stone
soon will be blind though (he) will see
there can be found a mirror of the soul
the crash can revive life, and the dead can feel

blackness, silence, cold and sadness
why did the nature engrave me here
blackness, silence, cold and sadness
why did thy power causes me to bleed

flaming forests … screaming beast
guilt of the one … has set them on fire
flaming forest … earthly breast
terrestrial fate … done and deceased

beware the nature´s wrath
pray for the cautious sign
Track Name: The Story ( … of a Murderer)
(words by Honza V.)

abominable, but gifted man
smell of the city – disgusting realm
the name forgotten now – lived in its age in the domain of scent

amongst the sweat of bodies and putrefaction smell
the stench of sulphur rose from the chimneys
the stench of rotting flesh from the wells
beneath the gloss of blooming age – a whiff of loathly humans
an era when the scent was all the rage
the lack of morals …

the air brings slightly a breath of her
a tender image of her body with red hair
stroking her cheeks, feel the splendid smell
the edge of a knife flashes mightly in her cell

the name forgotten now – lived in its age in the domain of scent

a power stronger than a thousands of men – the air was heavy
a pleasure terror in his hands – and him standing steady
whimpering human beasts, loud cries and moans
beneath the gloss of moral age - it was infernal
Track Name: Ryhope
(words by Honza V.)

smell of the wood, smell of the trees
smell the of trees, echoes of the past
rustling oaken leaves - oaken eddy which you cannot pass (through)
attracted by the secrecy
losing the notion of time
relating intimacy to old legends, ancient fights

dreaming about the roaring sky, about trees and thunder
dreaming about forefathers, these secrets make me wonder
steping inside the mind of wood forlorn …

concentric circles, circles of the inner wood
originate archetypes, the Celtic soldier and Robin Hood
wandering in silence, wandering in myths
step inside the history, live through the neolithic mood

where the story starts
there the story ends
the mind is crooked
this realm it blends

along the creek - leaving the realm of the world behind
from castles to battlefields - through space and time

along the creek - leaving the realm of the world behind
from castles to battlefields - through space and time
over woodlands and deeps, although the mind is blind
unconsciousness feeds these places with archetypes
Track Name: Moon, Forest, Blinding Snow
(words by Honza K.)

moon, forest, blinding snow
my ancestors call me back home

don´t ask me who leads my steps
what made me follow this path
the thing I feel is older than any words
how can you dare to stop me now ... please, don´t ... I must go

strange, moon shines slightly, just as little as clouds allow
may inner enlightment give me a sight of the day´s clarity
frost shivers my shoeless feet and tempts me to dance...
... the timeless dance with eternity

the last time Im looking back with tearless regards
well ... I used to love it there
last rememberance in a mind washed off pain and scars
well ... I used to suffer there

strange, suddenly I understand, all the tones and words whispered to me
a breathtaking song of divine unity
frost shivers my shoeless feet and tempts me to dance ...
... the endless dance with eternity

you may have used to know me, sorry if I´ll be missed
but the feeling inside is a law
I must keep on this path despite only guessing its goal
sorry my friends, I must go …

moon, forest, blinding snow
my ancestors call me back home
Track Name: The Myth of the Eternal Return + Black Wings of Death
(words by Honza V.)

as the moon grows to its completeness
- I pray to gods of old
on the mighty hill I stand
- resurrecting the world
in the shine of the north star
- where heaven meets the earth and hell
imitation of the act of gods
- fire, noise, screams shall prevail

darkness grows deeper as the aeon declines
return of the dead, soon a new morning shall rise
hopefully looking back at the authentic time
resurrection of free will – there our origin lies

darkness grows deeper as the aeon declines
return of the dead, soon new morning shall rise
history´s revocation – reminds the golden age
cosmos conflagration – return to the myth

I pray to gods of old …
resurrecting the world …
where heaven meets the earth and hell …
unfettered dance shall prevail …

as the old blooms wither these days
- our strength grows immensely high
return to the golden age
- imitation of the archetypes
nothing can last, what´s not brought back to life
- cosmic image shining bright
sacred moment with sacred vibe
- repeated begining of our time
