All flesh is grass is a much-quoted phrase from the Old Testament, Isaiah 40:6 (Hebrew: כָּל־הַבָּשָׂ֣ר חָצִ֔יר kol habbasar chatsir). In the New Testament the phrase reoccurs in the First Epistle of Peter (see 1Peter 1:24; Greek: πᾶσα σὰρξ ὡς χόρτος, pasa sarx hōs chortos). It was a commonly used epitaph, frequently found for example on old ledger stones and monuments in churches in 17th century England. The phrase is interpreted to mean that human life is transitory. It has been used in various works, including: "All Flesh is Grass", a poem by English poet Christina Rossetti. a book on agriculture by American author Gene Logsdon. an album by Norwegian dark metal band Madder Mortem. it was inscribed on the pope's chest in the painting King Edward VI and the Pope. it was inscribed on the pope's chest in the painting Deathbed of Henry VIII.
Also known as. Mystery Tribe. The group released their first full-length album, Mercury, in 1999, but the band's label folded soon after its release, and all members except the Kirkevaags left.

This is where forever opens This is where all flesh is grass This the mask and this the virgin This is where it falls apart.

All Flesh is Grass" is the 2nd full-length studio album by Norwegian female led e metal act Madder Mortem. The album was released through Century Media Records in February 2001. I found a great deal of enjoyment in the bandīs debut album "Mercury (1999)". Itīs a doomy/goth metal album with a really pleasant and warm sound. A bit different from the usual Nightwish and Evanescence clones which mare that part of the heavy metal spectrum
