Transcription Help: "cassilda" by Necronomidol

So I’ve become a fan of the group Necronomidol, and strangely I can only find the English translations of their lyrics rather than the actual words that are sung. I’m trying to transcribe what I hear, but my skills are basically beginner-level and I’m sure there are mistakes in there… plus, I was just plain stumped in a few places.

You can listen to the song here (also, it’s a total banger): cassilda - YouTube

Official English lyrics (posted to Bandcamp):
Enveloping shadows
Eventide ablaze

Glittering in the umbra
Stars of ill fortune
Light your way

The song of your soul perish, never to perish

Throw off your mourning dress
Testify to your existence

Let your laments resound
Screaming out your final gasp

Tenebrous in haze
Shambles of the metropolis

Heart unwavering
Eve of deliverance
Cast your rue upon the flames

Your ephemeral hope, never to perish

Throw off your mourning dress
Testify to your existence

Your strangled voice, never to perish

Throw off your mourning dress
Testify to your existence

Let your laments resound
Screaming out your final gasp

My transcription:
陰り 覆われる
の 揺る 落日

の 闇 に 瞬く
不吉 な 星
君 の 道 を 照らす

霊 の は 歌
死なせない

その 弔意 脱ぎすてて
命 の 自称

その 哀歌 響かせて
最後 の 叫び

(の 闇?) 炎 見える
都 の 死灰

揺るぎ無い 気風 (おく?)
門出 の 夜
未練 を 全て (?)

あえか な 希望
死なせない

その 弔意 脱ぎすてて
命 の 自称

(?) の 声
死なせない

その 弔意 脱ぎすてて
命 の 自称

その 哀歌 響かせて
最後 の 叫び

The lyrics are available on Apple Music. I assume they’re the official ones.

You’re pretty close overall. :+1:

影に覆われる
燃ゆる落日

夜闇に瞬く
不吉な星
君の道を照らす

霊魂の唄
死なせない

その弔衣
脱ぎ捨てて
命の自証

その哀歌
響かせて
最期の叫び

靄に仄見える
都の死骸

揺るぎ無き胸臆
門出の夜
未練を総て焼べる

あえかな冀望
死なせない

その弔衣
脱ぎ捨てて
命の自証

微かな聲
死なせない

その弔衣
脱ぎ捨てて
命の自証

その哀歌
響かせて
最期の叫び

Some of these Kanji choices were interesting. :laughing:

As such, some of what I wrote may be slightly off. Let me know if you find anything amiss. I just rewrote what I saw.

Thank you! I feel pretty silly now; I hunted all over Google for those lyrics. :laughing:

I did a Google exact match against the first two lines and got nothing, so it may not be online at all except for here. So no need to feel silly. :smiley:

I got the above by taking screenshots of my Music App while the song was playing in order to transcribe. :wink:
