I heard this song years and years ago, but I think it was written in the 90s.
It was the background to video called "I am Xana - code lyoko" by the user "firehunter". The last time I checked this was maybe two years ago and it was fine but I checked today and it was taken down by the copyright holders of Code Lyoko (which has nothing to do with the song).
I only remember snippets of lyrics which have not been helpful internet searching. Talks about some piece of evil magic that was accidentally created and it grows in power and hunger.
Something lingers in the dark
Something tainted something evil
Something born in dark magic's lair
I do remember the tune very well. I could probably compose something and link here if it would help.
- Pace was slow and creepy.
- I'm not sure what genre it would fall into. Maybe "folk"?
- The only instrument is an acoustic guitar.
- There is only one singer, sounds male but high pitched.
I don't think it was ever signed to a label. I have memories of finding the artist's webpage and it looked like it hadn't been touched since 2002 (stylistically). It seemed like something he did on the side and it wasn't a big venture.
