about

The House Do'Urden assaults and eliminates the House DeVir while Matron Malice gives birth to her thirdborn son, who is to be sacrificed to Lloth. During the battle, Dinin Do'Urden slays his elder brother for position, making the newborn, Drizzt, the secondboy of the House and sparing his life. Zaknafein Do'Urden, House Weapon Master, laments his part in the bloodshed.

lyrics

Lastborn

Malice:
To the meld, father to daughter
Sister to brother, let our work begin
Let the onslaught commence
For the will of the Spider Goddess

Briza & Maya:
Our House shall be glorious this night!
Let bloodshed be left in our wake!
The Fourth House shall vanish with no trace;
Slay the last of the DeVir race!

Vierna & Briza:
As we gather now in our circle of eight
The ring of Lloth's idol reverberates
Bringing death as mother brings life;
A baby's heart shall meet the knife

Malice:
(Dinnen douward ma brechen tol,
Abec di'n'a'breg doward!)

Briza & Maya:
Name the child!
We must name the lastborn child!
Slay the child!
The thirdborn son must die!

Malice:
Stay your hand!
Now welcome your newborn brother!
Finish the deed!
Kill every last DeVir child!

Zaknafein:
What is this place that is my world?
What dark coil has my spirit embodied?
In light I see my skin as black.
In darkness it glows white in the heat of this rage I cannot dismiss!
Menzoberranzan, what hell are you?!

The band split after creating their demo, "Underdark Echoes," in 2002. ... more
