1.
Rain on the ground And the crowns of the trees Wind through the leaves From the highlands To the sea Sun twists around Moon on its way again Hands to the sky Begging please Let me rest In the stars I can see your eyes In the dirt I can feel your hands On my face I can feel your tears Meandering rivers cut the land In the wind I can hear your voice Whispering in my ear so sweetly I have finally found you again Carved in the ashes of reality

Last Dream 05:15
Daughter, dream last dream I found you In the bend next to the river Cold At the end of winter Down the hill from the meadow And the cliff overlooking the stream Daughter, dream your last dream Rest your eyes and your tired body At peace, cold, in the snow, at the end of winter
4.
Drowned by the rising sea One final destiny One final fate Beneath the waves Ancient drowning city Underwater beauty Jewel in the sand Peaceful, silent Winds of the sea Mar the city Sands of time Sands of time Recede Drown the city
5.
You Took Me 08:25
You have took me Oh, you took me To the end To the end You rise and you fall The last time you feel alive You rise and you fall

Sorrowful and grand debut album by funeral doom band VOUNA evokes a devastating and beautiful journey of becoming the last person on earth. Razor sharp tremolo picked guitars cut through the heart like a knife. Mournfully sung vocals and cinematic melodies are combined with crushing doom drums, while layers of primitive 90s digital synths conjure a lush and rugged soundscape.

All music was composed and all instruments performed by Vouna frontwoman Yianna Bekris (previously of Vradiazei, Eigenlicht, and Sadhaka). The music was inspired and influenced by Finnish funeral doom, English masters My Dying Bride, Eastern European black metal, and Greek folk music.

Vouna was recorded entirely at the WITTR studio, Owl Lodge, which is located at the edge of an ancient forest in Olympia, WA. Nathan of WITTR collaborated with Yianna to create the artwork, which mixes archaic Hellenic mythic images with Cascadian atmospheres.
