    Default Request for explanation

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I do translation of lirics by Anathema band into my nativ language and I got stuck. The fragment is:
    "An impassive depravity of a cadaverous epiphany"
    I know the meaning of each seperate word but can't find a sense as a whole.
    I'm asking you to put me the sentence in other words.
    Please, help me.

    Thanking you in advance,

    Yours faithfully,
    Davingh

    Without more context, I can't make much sense of it either. The 'cadaverous epiphany' is presumably some divine being in physical form, though if the are depraved, it suggests that it is not a good deity, but a devil or similar.

    OK, so Stormlord is a depraved deity in physical form and shows no emotion about its depravity.

    There appears to be an error in the line. The line should read,

    An impressive depravity . . .
