Lyrics:

1). Following the Voice

Many nights I have wasted
Watch the sun rise
As my heart beats faster

Gruesome world my eyes see
Thoughts that race will never sleep

Hate the light, lie in wait
My curse is mine to create

Sweat soaked skin, darkened
Hallways
Stay inside, hide with my demons

Dangerous game
Can’t get away
Full of regret
I am a slave

Hate the light, lie in wait
My curse is mine to create

Will crushed by disease
Losing sanity
Feel I have no choice
Following the voice

Damage done
Death roll
Blood soaked
Dead soul

Sliced flesh
Brains cut
Arms twitch
Eyes shut

There is no hope

2). Buried in Sand

Burning bridges surround you
Mark the words, your world will
Crumble, become one with the sand

You had it all, but now you fall
Plagued by disease they vow to
Overcome

Burning empire below you
Summoning the vigour, to vanquish
And eradicate the ones who held
Them down.

You took it all, but now you fall
Abuse of rule, but now your time
Has come.

I split your skull tearing the heart
Out
Holdin your soul up to the sky
Rise of the sheep, who swear to
Prevail,
And witness the death of genocide.

Break the chains and live your lives
The dark age is gone

Thrown in to the fire
Flames melting your skin
Rise up from the ashes
A new age has come

Your silver spoon
Should’ve been poisoned
Erased from the past before it began
Snakes in disguise, legions of liars
Misguided wisdom
Now passed on

Break the chains and live your lives
Embrace your fate
Leave death behind

Thrown in to the fire
Flames melting your skin
Rise up from the ashes
A new age has come

No remorse

The day of the suffering
Breaths bile
No rule
As the bodies are piled

3). Worshipper

Villainous realm
Down deep in the ground
In fire lit caverns
The chanting will sound
Forgotten souls wait
To one day be found
Drink from my wounds
Now you will drown

Spectre’s of light form all around
You
Drawing you in to steal you away
Taken from us pulled in to the
Darkness
Trapped from within upon you they
Prey.

I hear your voice
Come through white noise

Can you not feel the infinite anguish
Madness and wisdom are on in the
Same
Lock up your lies hoarder of hatred
Greed is your pride the essence you
Drain

I hear your voice
Come through white noise
Suddenly vanished
Without a trace

Wash the brains
Then lead them to the slaughter
Seals your fate
Erasing sons and daughters
Built on bones
Mass grave has been forgotten
Conceal the tomb

The entity waits its power grows
Stronger
Unleashes a wrath that blackens the
Days
Stalking the living
Now deep inside you
Mythical beast causing
Your sun to fade

In to the void, there is no choice
Suddenly vanished
Without a trace

Wash the brains
Then lead them to the slaughter
Seals your fate
Erasing sons and daughters
Built on bones
Mass grave has been forgotten
Conceal the tomb
Where they lay to rest

Stray from the path
Descend in to the gateways

In secret and solitude
All will align
They steal your mind away
Cursing the night

4). Pentacle

You hold the key
You have the knife
Stand in the doorway
Cut out your eyes

Ram’s head grain of sand
Centre of my hand
Black wolf, writhing snake
Triangle of flame

Crawling out from caves
Beas now falls onto the blade

High on blood
Gnawing your tongue
Ritual
Altar of stone

Death’s hand, sorcery
Bow only to me
Black earth, crucifix
Slit wrist lunatics
Crawling out from caves
Beast now falls onto the blade
Lamb waits to be slain

5). Descending

Instrumental

6). Ibex Eye

Here I stand, high above
All this death, as it waits

Spiral crown, made of bone
Blackened blood, horns of agony
Staring down at their wastelands
Primal brain so pure of heart

Bleeding wrecthed blood
Skulls trampled from above

Make my way, down paths of
Sacred song, my soul is strong

I erase the path I take
Hating man horns over

Hands sinister and cold
Are all he’s ever known

None shall defy me
All shall fear my ibex eye

Storm comes in disguise
Flames in my eyes

Sacred triumph of death
I will take their last breath

Sacred ways, triumph of death
They will take one last breath

Ancient ways, bringer of death
I will take their last breath

My call is my sword
I will be heard

7). My Home, My Gallows

Brick by brick I create
A life I was born to hate
My home, my gallows oblivion awaits

Spill my guts, bind my wrists
The rope tightens

Place your trust in another
Put no faith in me
I will only abandon
What you want me to be

Spill my guts, bind my wrists
The rope tightens
Body of lies
The way of the fates

My home, my gallows
Delusions of grandeur

The path I take leads nowhere

8). Serpents

The roots are deep
Poisonous core
Kings of the shadows
Speak with split tongues

Voice of the world
The mouth of infinity
Two headed serpent crown this cup
Of blood your destiny

Since dawn of time

The scales of hatred lie
Underneath your skin
Hands that feed
Will spread disease
And the world is bound

Ungodly veil
Infectious minds
Torturous Power
Will form the lines
Now bite the hand
Drink sands of divinity
The golden thrones are turning black
Silence the enemy

Since dawn of time

The scales of hatred lie
Underneath the skin
Hands that feed
Will spread disease

And the world is bound

9). Incantations

Drowning in a sea of blood
As the flame surrounds you
In this place your doomed to fall
By my will I make you crawl

The divine holding a crooked sceptre
I am the eye, standing above your
Wretched throne

I bring you fear, no one to see you
Rise again
your scrams will fall upon deaf ears

Everlasting portal of light
We come forth from hiding
Offer now this ritual death
My revenge will take you

May I fly, may I become the hunter
Walking the left hand path
The eternal ones I slay

I bring you fear, no one to see you
Rise again
Your screams will fall upon deaf ears

Gods of the north, their blood stains
Feed on their souls, vengeance will
Crush you

Pure of heart, pure of body
My words will be heard
