Track Name: Terror Manifest
From these boundless depths I will arise

Shrouded in shame, consumed by fear
A man forsaken, shall rise again unmarred
What once was flesh shall decay into dust
Yet this foul ritual will bring me forth once more.

Once forgotten, my name, lost to eons
My corpse lies undisturbed in my forgotten tomb.
There remains an aspect of my will undying
Its thirst for blood glory forever endures.

The blackened seed of unholy life eternal
takes it rotted root in me
Renewed, I return as terror manifest
Dread lord of vile undeath

Unchecked, a blight is cast upon their land
As mortals fall, they rise again at my command

No longer allowed to live, yet never truly dying
Ensuring only everlasting misery

Shrouded in shame, consumed by fear
A man forsaken, shall rise again unmarred

Horror incarnate
Terror manifest
Track Name: Infernal Ascendance
Past the listless fields of Elysium
There arise the crags of Sheol’s borders
Hellish, Fiendish, Diabolical -
Befitting Hell.

Yet from where I am
The hum of the shades is too distant
The soundscape of wails, too faint

From here, there is only ascendance

Past the listless fields of Elysium
There arise the crags of Sheol’s borders
Hellish, Fiendish, Diabolical -
Befitting Hell.

“To lie in the soft brown earth,
with the grasses waving above one's head
and listen to silence. To have no yesterday
and no to-morrow. To forget time,
to forgive life, to be at peace.”
Track Name: A Vile Genesis
Lead to perish (by) mortals imagined as gods.
(An) epidemic of human life devours the host
 
Panes of glass carve the atrophied wastes.
Withered roots burst,
trickling into (a) hemoglobin sea
 
Attempt renewal through a strange and vile genesis;
a genocidal urge to recreate
Isolate and preserve from devastation

Banish. Erode. Eradicate
 Select. Sustain. Regenerate
 Perfect. Restrain. Manipulate
 Banish. Erode. Eradicate
 
Upon our graveyard throne forged of war and hate
We seek to wrest control from the hands of fate
A blackened dawn shall rise on our bloodied shores
A corrupt kingdom built in sin, forevermore

A world ravaged in pursuit of our foul ideal
No gods to save you now
Annihilation of the disease of man
Only ash remains

Panes of glass carve the atrophied wastes.
Withered roots burst,
trickling into (a) hemoglobin sea;

What have we become?

Upon our graveyard throne forged of war and hate
We seek to wrest control from the hands of fate
A blackened dawn shall rise on our bloodied shores
A corrupt kingdom built in sin, forevermore
Track Name: The Unyielding
Forsaking their flesh;   
a carrion landscape is all that's left.
Remnants of unyielding sacrifice,
these ashes are no phoenix's nest.

Consumed by a masochistic inferno;
Gnawed by scathing coils of light; 
limbs crackling forth from their forms; 
writhing now - can they even regret? 

Baptismal font of flames; 
light spreads from this immolation, 
cloaking all, illuminating. 

Ensconced by embers of carnal pulp; 
ensnared by this tableaux.


My flesh - merely tinder; kindling for agony
and a flaming catalyst for a world reborn

As a living pyre I will become
a putrefying coalescence
This public cremation; a Pharos for all

Envisioned in malevolence
Now a pulsating scion of spite
Beyond fervor and zeal
My mission is sure.
A soul forever cleansed of fear

A human spark
I shall forge a new earth
Free from the yoke of their abhorrent reign
My skull as a lantern
Spewing forth flame
Illuminating my final will
