This song was written as a token of gratitude for being lucky enough to get to know our departed friend Adrian Rugina. He lost his life while saving other metalheads from the blaze at the Colectiv club in Bucharest, Romania, 30 October 2015.

He was a true friend and, ultimately, proved to be a modern day hero, too. With Asteapta-ma Dincolo (de Moarte) we know, once more, as if needed, that his loved memory and professional legacy will never be forgotten.

The song was written and recorded during the Fall of 2016 in Tara de Sus studio by Bucovina, mixed and mastered at Gernhart Studio by Martin Buchwalter in December 2016.

The video was conceptualized and shot in December 2016 by Razvan M. Lupascu and Addarta. All rights belong to Bucovina/Tara de Sus.

The song is available on all digital platforms, including iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Play Music, Spotify and more. Follow Bucovina on social media at:


Aşteaptă-mă dincolo de moarte

Ploile reci ale toamnei
Curg acum cu mâhnire
Ca un Styx
Încremenit de jale.

Charon şi vâslele-i tremură
Şi luntrea nu vrea să o mişte
Să nu-ţi dea, şoim,
Spre-adânc liberă cale.

Vin şi eu acum
Pe tristul tău drum
Spre mâhnitul tărâm,
Aşteaptă-mă dincolo de moarte

Furtuni ar vrea să te-ntoarcă
Din drumul tău cernit
Iar munţi cu drag s-ar pune
Zăgaz în calea ta

Ştiind că zadarnic e totul
Dar nevrând să nu te mai vadă
Chiar timpul piedică morţii
S-ar pune dac-ar putea

Năframe n-au fluturat
Şi nimeni n-a zis rămas-bun
Săruturi de-adio
Pe frunte n-au zăbovit

Doar o umbră ce-nvăluie toamna
A sădit în inimi frig
Şi pe drumul către neguri
Ai pornit.

Look Forth for Me from Beyond (Death’s Doorway)

Autumn casts blood-freezing rainfalls
Grief flowing down like a river
Styx of old
In mournful shroud attired

Charon stands shuddering, stills his oars
His boat he is loath to set forth in
That you, hawk, may
In yon deep be never mired

See me haste my stride
Join your gloomy tide
To where sorrows abide
Look forth for me from beyond death’s doorway

Windstorms would gather their forces
To thwart your drear advance
And mountains would eagerly fall in
To a dam in your way stood

Knowing its strife unavailing
Yet lest it should ever lose sight of you
Time itself, death it would hamper
If only it ever could

There was no silken flutter
No farewell ever received
Not one sole parting kiss
On furrowed brow did alight

But one shadow enthralling the autumn
Has instilled its chill in hearts
And you set off down the pathway
In the night.
