Cult of Scarecrow is a Belgian metalband. Their music can be described as epic doom metal, melodic but dark, with intense riffs and vocals. Their lyrics bathe in an atmosphere of hopelessness, despondency and dejection. The self-destruction of mankind by wasting its own planet is one of the main themes.
"Last Words from Black Birds" is an indictment to all powers that value money more than the future of our children. The band says : "If we all keep going on like this, the planet will not survive very much longer. The apocalypse is near. No clue what will happen, but it will."
The video was filmed in the vicinity of their home base, the region of East-Flanders in Belgium. There's a leading role in it for Doel, a ghost town close to the immense Port of Antwerp. The town was abandoned by almost all of its inhabitants in the late 90's. Also mind the cooling towers of the nearby nuclear power plant in the video!
The video was filmed and directed by Yana Poppe, eldest daughter of the band's bassist Gunther. The drone shots were made by Thomas Collewaert of Tomiko Systems.

Cult of Scarecrow is:
Filip De Wilde : Lead Vocals
Jan Van Der Poorten : Guitar
Ivan De Strooper : Guitar
Gunther Poppe : Bass & Backing Vocals
Eddy Scheire : Keyboards & Backing Vocals
Nico Regelbrugge : Drums

Lyrics 'Last Words from Black Birds'

I'm reading skies and birds are saying,
Cursed be your kind, hear hounds baying
I'm reading skies and clouds are saying,
Your time has come, the season for spaying

The human race will cease to exist (3x)
If not the case then who's next on their list?

I'm reading skies and shooting stars are saying,
Death's in your eyes, too late for praying
I'm reading skies and new moon is saying,
Start digging graves for skulls arraying

The human race will cease to exist (3x)
If not the case then who's next on their list?

Last words from black birds,
Last words from dying black birds

You cry out to the sky :why have you forsaken us ?
Do you really wonder why this world is dying out on us ?

Have you all been born blind ? (3x)
Or is there only money on your mind?

Last words from black birds,
Last words from dying black birds

Six moons – six weeks – six days
Six hours – six minutes – six seconds...
