01. Serpent Sermon

Our mastema is vast - even in the house of God
Ever present - within and so without

Reversed life-force channeled
into prayers of blame
and fork-tongued glory

Guileless doctrine turned - into teachings
on how to love The Lie
on how to love The Lie

Psalms of venom - Slithering saints

Our mastema is great - even on the preacher's tongue
Ever moving - above and so below

Reversed life-force channeled
into prayers of blame
and fork-tongued glory

Guileless doctrine turned - into teachings
on how to love The Lie

Our mastema runs deep - even in the veins of the Lamb
Ever active - within and so without


02. Messianic Pestilence

And I listened and I heard...
the colour of blood
And I beheld and I saw...
the voice of the Lord
Sweeping over the masses
Removing the cover from the fierce mouths of a new plague

Swiftly turning our cities into still graves
Messianic Pestilence

And I sniffed and I smelled...
the drumbeats of Hell
Like a thousand commingling thunders
Violently shaking the foundation of the earth

The old land of life has failed
Newer rites of Death prevail

Swiftly turning our cities into still graves
Messianic Pestilence

Messianic Pestilence
Messianic Pestilence
Christlike plague
of HOLY DEATH
Messianic Pestilence

And I spoke and I called...
for the grandeurs of War
To rage upon mankind
To again roar among the congregations of the earth

The old land of life has failed
Newer rites of Death prevail


03. Souls For Belial

Sweet torrents of Death
Oh engulfing ruin
Every fall is a soul
...for Belial

In sinless guilt rushing
Blasts of yokeless glory
To and fro - Red ascension
Collecting souls

...for Belial
...for Belial

And as our voice uncovers
Another soul to the stream
Another soul devoured
...for Belial

Oh Lawless Angel we approach thee
In the form of proudest shame
We thy children - Here assembled
Now thy promised blessing claim
...promised blessing claim

Lord of Arrogance - Lord of Pride
Fling thy unrestrained nets thrice
And let The Rivers of the under world
Swiftly to the surface rise

Oh Spirit of Darkness we invoke thee
In the name of all things depraved
We thy servants - here forgathered
Now thy promised blessing claim
...promised blessing claim

Sweet torrents of Death
Oh engulfing ruin
Every fall is a soul
...for Belial

...for Belial
...for Belial

Angels of sweed
Ever rising decline
Every slip is a soul
...for Belial

...for Belial
...for Belial

In sinless guilt rushing
Blasts of yokeless glory
To and fro - Red ascension
Collecting souls

...for Belial
...for Belial

And as our voice uncovers
Another soul to the stream
Another soul devoured
...for Belial


04. Into Second Death

Of swift-winged Damnation and of Divine Anger
Waves of sulphurous Justice rushing forth
Unrivaled Flames arise from the unrivaled hunger
...of the consuming sinkhole of the Gods
And this is the Fire - that shall cleanse your soul

And as a cloud of dying flesh shall it materialize
That voice long heard at the altar of Rusty Death
Floating on the quickly fading memory of life
The pitch-black splendour of the Devil's breath
And this is the Darkness - that shall cause you to...

Fall - Into the quenchless fire
Fall - Into the depths
Fall - With the rest of your sinful empire
Fall - Into second Death

And the chants of the damned shall be
sharpened and be turned into spears
Blades of burnished curse gleam in the dark
Wounds shall be made and be kept open for years
And the blood thereof shall become our sweetest psalms
And this is the Poison - that shall wash you clean

And as a cloud of dying flesh shall it materialize
That voice long heard at the altar of Rusty Death
Floating on the quickly fading memory of life
The pitch-black splendour of the Devil's breath
And this is the Darkness - that shall cause you to...

Fall - Into the quenchless fire
Fall - Into the depths
Fall - With the rest of your sinful empire
Fall - Into second Death


05. Temple Of Decay

Hills will be deaf
and mountains will not hear
There be no caves
No corners there
To shade your souls from the fire
To shield your hearts from fear

His W R A T H is upon us
The Flames draw near

And evermore shall you kneel
Before the Altar of Death
Forever damned to the Temple
...of Decay

The skies shall explode
And the air itself ignite
But the flames thereof
Shall bring no light
To lead you out from the darkness
Of this unceasing Night

His W R A T H is upon us
And Death we invite

And evermore shall you kneel
Before the Altar of Death
Forever damned to the Temple
...of Decay

And evermore shall you kneel
Before the Altar of Death
Forever damned to the Temple
...of Decay


06. Damnation's Gold

Gold moon - Sun of silver
See the fallen string their bows
Another dart from reason's quiver
Again the eyes of madness glow

Curse on curse - Voice of fire
See the width of Hell expand
Knotted whips of flaming wire
Dancing upon the back of man

Doomsday embers
Damnation's spread
The Dark embodies
Death stands prepared

Ascend - Awake - Arise
O Ye Flames of Perdition
Havoc - Ravage - Demise
Damnation's Gold

Judgement materialized
The flames converge
Behold Desecration
take form and emerge

Ascend - Awake - Arise
O Ye Flames of Perdition
Havoc - Ravage - Demise
Damnation's Gold

Shoreless seas of hallowed quicksand
No redemption - No way up
Accept the imperious yoke of Satan
And drink now from Damnation's cup

Gold moon - Sun of silver
See the fallen string their bows
Another dart from reason's quiver
Again the eyes of madness glow

Curse on curse - Voice of fire
See the width of Hell expand
Knotted whips of flaming wire
Dancing upon the back of man

Doomsday embers
Damnation's spread
The Dark embodies
Death stands prepared

Ascend - Awake - Arise
O Ye Flames of Perdition
Havoc - Ravage - Demise
Damnation's Gold

Ascend - Awake - Arise
O Ye Flames of Perdition
Havoc - Ravage - Demise
Damnation's Gold


07. Hail Mary (Piss-Soaked Genuflexion)

Hail Mary
Full of grace
Ashen vomit - Cascades of Black
The Lord is with you
Alleluja!
Angelic orgies in Demonic Filth

Blessed are you among women
Hook-like genitals digging forth
And blessed is the fruit of your womb
Hook-like genitals digging through

Holy Mary
Mother of God
Pray for us sinners
Semen and blood
Behold the handmaid of the Lord
In Piss-soaked Genuflexion

Hail Mary
Full of grace
The sacramental urine praise
The Lord is with you
Alleluja!
Ravenous phalluses digging deep

Holy Mary
Mother of God
Pray for us sinners
Semen and blood
Behold the handmaid of the Lord
In Piss-soaked Genuflexion


08. M.A.M.M.O.N.

Succumb! Submit!
Give in!

One step towards The Sin of the Calf
Two steps away from God
High hills made low in the name of Greed
Infernal lust in heavenly robes

Come bask now
...in its sulphurous luster
...in its sulphurous glory

Molten vanity
Avaricious glory
Moldering pride
Measuring maggots
Overflowing with golden guilt
Narrow is the path out of damnation

One step away from the will of Heaven
Two steps towards The Pit
High heads made low in the name of Punishment
Unquenchable thirst in a river of flames

Come bask now
...in its sulphurous luster
...in its sulphurous glory

Metallic hunger
Altars of sin
Murderous shining lust
Magic stones of ruin
Overwhelming greed
Nectar of death


09. Gospel Of The Worm

Through used up life-force and used up skin
Through strings of failure
and stiff limbs of shame

Crapulous orgies - Consuming sin
In ceaseless hunger
Hellish black thirst

Livid with the hue of mould and death
Crowned with swarming angels of rot
Mere food for maggots
Mere fuel for the flames
Saying grace at the table of Decay

And as your soul in darkness burn
...of the emptiness you learn
And as your flesh to soil turn
...embrace the Gospel of the Worm

Warmth and life are now strangers in here
The Void is present
Ancient yet forever new

Dead - You are dead!
Depleted - You are dead!
Bow before the skillful smith of Decay
No hope - Only Death!
Clusters of heavy sins hold you down

And as your soul in darkness burn
...of the emptiness you learn
And as your flesh to soil turn
...embrace the Gospel of the Worm


10. World Of Blades

Lifeless rebirth - Devoured and made anew
Fleshless dominion and the blackness of burnt blood
And as a tempest of rust and moths
shall my voice boom forth
Proclaiming the gospel of A New Dawn
...and the coming of the Lord

The coming of the Lord
The birth of The Darkness
The coming of the Lord
...and a World of Blades

The Great Darkness descends now even faster
The throat of hope and mercy lies strangled
And upon fixed poles of Guilt and Death
shall my anthems thunder
Revealing the splendour of The New Law
...and the coming of the Lord

The coming of the Lord
The birth of The Darkness
The coming of the Lord
...and a World of Blades

And the light of the new dawn shall come as flames of destruction
The hope of man shall melt like wax before the flame
And the earth shall open and re-open and shall hunger for flesh
Thirsty blades shall glitter at every gate
Sharpened - blessed - and polished for slaughter

And the might of the new law shall be as vast cataclysms
Violently tearing time and space to shreds
And the blood of the lamb shall blacken and become as tar
Death shall stand like a mountain of power
And you and your fellow beings shall give thanks!

Lifeless rebirth - Devoured and made anew
Fleshless dominion and the blackness of burnt blood
And as a tempest of rust and moths
shall my voice boom forth
Proclaiming the gospel of A New Dawn
...and the coming of the Lord

The coming of the Lord
The birth of The Darkness
The coming of the Lord
...and a World of Blades


11. Coram Satanae

Shifting from strength to strength
Devouring Darkness
Piercing Light

Striking high and low
Into the foundation of life

Risen from high to higher
The stars of God and above
Yet shall the ash cloud reach
to Earth and to the Lowest Low

Fixed - Yet bound to ascend
Rising as lions among men
Coram Satanae - Coram Satanae
Fixed - Yet bound to ascension

Shifting from strength to strength
Devouring Darkness
Piercing Light

Striking high and low
Into the foundation of life

Risen from high to higher
The stars of God and above
Yet shall the ash cloud reach
to Earth and to the Lowest Low

Fixed - Yet bound to ascend
Rising as lions among men
Coram Satanae - Coram Satanae
Fixed - Yet bound to ascension
