Lords of Triumph - Reaching the End CS


Debut EP from this Danish / American doom project.
In the winter of 2010, guitarist Martin Meyer Mendelssohn Sparvath (Altar Of Oblivion) began work on a
new project and approached Phil Swanson (Seamount, Vestal Claret, ex-Hour Of 13) to take part. They
discussed ideas and concepts and it was decided to work this band in a different way than their other bands
to avoid repetition or comparison. So rather than Phil take on as lyricist, it was decided that Martin would
write the words based on Phil’s phonetic vocal arrangements in order for the vocals to retain the integrity
to Phil’s style but perhaps allow him to be heard in a slightly different and new light. Within weeks, they
had all the music and lyrics written and recorded to a rough demo and began pre-production on a full-
length bringing on board a full band of notable Danish musicians to fill in on bass and drums as Martin
tagged this new band as “Lords of Triumph”
