Release date: February 27th, 1990. Catalog ID: 465876 2. loading lyrics. The Mirror Black. Show lyrics. Seasons of Destruction. Part of what separates Into the Mirror Black from the rest of the late-'80searly-'90s pack is its relentless adherence to memorable songcraft relatively restrained musicianship Warrel Dane's aggressive-yet-melodic, helium-lung vocal chops and a thoroughly dark, stark production boasting an intriguingly cavernous, hallowed and hollowed, gothy guitar sound that leaves plenty. Into the Mirror Black was the second of two albums that Sanctuary, the band that Nevermore came out, released. we are back in 1990. After a short bass intro and an elegian part Future Tense is held in midtempo. Warrel Dane, thats the first impression, doesn't sing as high as on the debut Refuge Denied. His vocals are more like it is now in Nevermore. A great refrain makes this song an alltime classic. A long guitar solo in the middle and lots of breaks complete this opener. The Mirror Black 05:10. Seasons Of Destruction 04:54. I am in the mirror, see my reflection in the stars And as you search for truth, so I will shine to spur you on Spur you on Bathe in the pure truth of my light. Time is an illusion, death is not conclusion. All those who seek the truth will questions still remaining Now listen closely, and all will be so clear I am a messenger, a bringer of light from the other side So chosen now to teach while drifting between lives Drifting, drifting I will be reborn.

Mirror Black- Cool intro makes you want more and you get it with a good solo and that leads into a very nice and unexpected clean riff with more great vocals. Then of course, that leads into some dirty guitars, but it does not get heavy until about half way through the song, and at that time, you get another good solo. Some simple but good guitar riffs fill this song. With yet more good vocals and some interesting lyrics such as You make love to blackness kind of a cool lyric. Pretty good song that is pretty interesting. 55 Track7. Seasons of Destruction- My second favorite song. Into the Mirror Black, second Sanctuary album, expressed a gothic and melancholic component first evolutive step towards Nevermore music that made more complex and deeper the traditional heavy metal roots of the band. Epic melodies are here tarnished by a veil of dark romanticism, that made Into the Mirror Black as much thoughtful as any other album conceived in the peripheral position of 80s rock maps
