01. Cathedrals Of Mourning

Music by Belzebubs
Lyrics by Hubbath
Under domes of anguish, I dwell

Through the bleak and bitter night
Across the plains of blackened shards
I call your hallowed name
Bound by the shackles of time

Cathedrals of mourning I'll find
Cathedrals of mourning, now mine

The soaring pinnacles touching the ashen sky

The gods of nightside realm
Cold eyes carved in the stones
Watching over these somber halls of wailing and fear

For the ones who never die
Dreaming through forgotten times
I call your hallowed name
From beyond the grim stars

Not dead which eternal lie
With stranger aeons death may die
I call your hallowed name
Chained by the sigils of moon

I witness the rise of elder gods
From the formless void
Beyond the screaming stars

New dawn that shall arrive
Blood moon and evernight
Now hear the call to arms
Your banner high above the restless hordes

Burning pits of sacrifice
Hecatombs of broken hearts
I call your hallowed name
Ever-changing mistress of night

Cathedrals of mourning I'll find
Cathedrals of mourning, now mine

Now sky turns black and all shall fall

The gods of nightside realm
Cold eyes carved in the stones
Watching over these somber halls of wailing and fear

Darkness
Bind me
Fill me
From beyond the stars

02. The Faustian Alchemist

Music by Belzebubs
Lyrics by Hubbath
There among the broken columns
Mutilated sculptures
Deep under the marble demons
Desolated charnels

I found her entombed
All withered and hardened
Veiled maiden of halcyon days
Sleeping in her golden shrine

All shall love her and despair
All shall kneel before her throne

I drown in her eyes
I weep before her grace
The monarch of the moon and stars
The queen of nighttime realm

I brought her into my chamber
Wreathed her in hexes
Anointed with milk and balms
Bathed her in ox blood

I sacrifice my servants
Immolate in furnace
Cast my dearest ones in fire
Relinquish my accursed soul

I drown in her eyes
I weep before her grace
The monarch of the moon and stars
The queen of nighttime realm

And she will rise before me
Now in her restored might
The devastating glory
The all-beholding eyes

The touch of divine fingers
Eats deep into my flesh
One searing kiss of serpent
Before the blackness falls

I drown in her eyes
I weep before her grace

03. Blackened Call

Music by Belzebubs
Lyrics by Hubbath
Hear the blackened call
Summoning the night
Hearken to the moon
Majesty of skies

Armed with the sacred might
Wielding ancient lore
Guarded by the blackest words
I stand by this gate

I command and constrain thee
O spirits of the night
By him who spoke the word
The king of netherworld

Hear the blackened call
Summoning the night
Hearken to the moon
Majesty of skies

I know the secret names
To unlock hidden vaults
Mysteries of ancient times
I grasp them all

Authority from supreme lord
Harbinger of doom
Crown of flames upon his brow
He watches over this world

By the names Adonai, Elohim, Zobroth, Azazel and Beelzebub
I command you, I constrain you
O spirits of the night

Wreathed in flames
Smoke upon my brow
I command all thee
Spirits of the night

Armed with the sacred might
Wielding ancient lore
Guarded by the blackest words
I stand by this gate

I command and constrain thee
O spirits of the night
Open these grim doors
And let me pass into the deep

Hear the blackened call
Summoning the night
Hearken to the moon
Majesty of skies

04. Acheron

Music by Belzebubs
Lyrics by Hubbath
Through the brooding darkness
Fight against the tide
Slowly moving upstream
Towards the morning light

Dark is the water
Dark the misty air
Darker still my heart
That shivers in the breeze

Deceiving death itself
I travelled this far
Deep into the twilight world
To the silent halls

Where the dead still wait
Linger in the dusk
I came to mend my soul
Redeem my precious one

Cruel is the fate here
Pitiless the death

Stole my sun and moon
Stole my cherished one
Took it from my arms and buried in the shades

Deceiving death itself
I travelled this far
Deep into the twilight world
To the silent halls

Where the dead still wait
Linger in the dusk
I came to mend my soul
Redeem my precious one

And suddenly before me the black waters stir
And the beast, it rises

The guardian awakes
The menacing darkness
And the river roils
And winds they howl

Hurled into the shore
Cast on the treacherous stones
I surge into the dark
Sheltering my fragile son

Deceiving death itself
I travelled this far
Deep into the twilight world
To the silent halls
Where the dead still wait
Deluding the bitter fate
I travelled deep
To fetch my poor son
Reverse the tides
Bring back my dearest one

Bring back the one

05. Nam Gloria Lucifer

Music by Belzebubs
Lyrics by Hubbath
Draw near and see now
Witness the things to come:
Seven seals are broken
White throne depraved and stained

Behold the beast now
The lash of iron rods
Seven heads and ten horns
The reign of one thousand years

Celestial violence now
Upon your wretched church

I set your world in flames
Lay waste your towering forts
I bring down all that you've built
I behead your foul souls

Et visum est aliud signum in cælo:
Et ecce draco magnus rufus habens capita septem, et cornua decem
Et in capitibus eius diademata septem
Et super capita eius nomina blasphemiæ
Et coronam satanae

Draw near and hear now
The mouth of dragon speaks:
Damnation will come
Wolves shall devour the lamb

Hour of the reaping
The war on nine fronts
Crucify the angels
And let the sulphur rain from skies

And the world shall be made anew
Purged from the tyranny of hatred and hypocrisy

Praise the one who sets us free
Magnify eternally
Wish upon the morning star
All shall be redeemed
When horned saviour calls

Nam gloria Lucifer

06. The Crowned Daughters

Music by Belzebubs
Lyrics by Sløth & Hubbath
The woods whispered a woeful tune
Rustling leaves in autumn hues
The same eve that I found you there
Hauntingly fair, stranded and bare

The trees murmured a mournful hum
Lingering light from a dying sun
When your ashen stare met mine
Wringing me tight, eyes hollow
and white, deprived of life

Arcane symbols on your wrists
A wooden crown of weeds and sticks
And well-sealed in your outspread arms
Your porcelain palms
A mystical charm
For the chosen ones

The queen will bloom within your womb

The queen shall rise now
The wait is over
She'll be reborn again to rule
This stranded earth

The queen shall rise now
The wait is over
She'll be reborn again to lead
These mislaid hearts

07. Dark Mother

Music by Belzebubs
Lyrics by Sløth & Hubbath
Infernal, terrestrial
Celestial, ever-changing

The skies dyed red now
Basking in crimson
And solemn silence
As midnight sighs

Welkin turning
The stars descending
Such frail magic
As blackness veils thy eyes

A vessel of a deity
Untouched beauty
Thy sacred womb shall
Carry the grandest prize

Incarnation
Resurrection
Virginal conception
Of the dark mother

She governs the grim gates of death

In exultation
I sense her coming
Like distant thunder
Thickening air

On thy breasts now
The obsidian serpent
Herald of the nightside
Reciting her names

She was there when Babylon fell
On Nineveh's final cry
On Troy's dying knell
And watching the Nazarene die

We who wait veiled in the dark
Call out your name through the night

The queen shall rise now
The wait is over
She'll be reborn again to rule
This stranded earth

The queen shall rise now
The wait is over
She'll be reborn again to lead
Our mislaid hearts

Moon of a thousand forms
The terrible dark one

Infernal, terrestrial, celestial
Ever-changing mistress of the night

And behold the mystery and the majesty
Secret queen of a hundred fallen empires
Born out of the shadow of the moon
From beyond the birth of time

The woods whispered a woeful tune
Rustling leaves in autumn hues
Her steps imprint the night-frost hoar
Forevermore

08. The Werewolf Bride

Music by Belzebubs
Lyrics by Hubbath
The frail light of midsummer's eve
The god-fearing and the pious sleep
Hour of witches and demons breaks
The lackeys of Satan
In the woods await

Forgetting the Christ
And the word of God
Forsaking the parish
And the cleric's rod
She hearkens to call
From beyond the trees
Yearning to run with the wolves
Through dusk and breeze

Will you come with me

Will you come with me?
To the marshes
Will you come with me?
My maiden fair

Where the cloudberries
And rowans grow
Will-of-the-wisp above
The brackens glows
Vipers sway around the azure flames
She enclothes the wolfskin
And falls in shades

Here in the nightside
The fangs grow sharp
Here in the twilight
The claws tear deep
Strong like the north wind
They race through the mires
Lust of the flesh gleaming
In their blazing eyes

Will you come with me

Will you come with me?
To the marshes
Will you come with me?
My maiden fair

To where no bells toll
To where no chains leash
Come taste the foal's blood
Revel in ecstasy

And there in the heart
Of ulterior darkness
The woods now shudder
And colossal wings
Spread out to embrace her
And hide from the sight of god

Unearthly bliss is shed upon her
Unknown to mortal men
And she becomes the dew
On the leaves
The silent humming in treetops

A beast's heart
Unfettered soul

09. Pantheon Of The Nightside Gods

Music by Belzebubs
Lyrics by Hubbath
We are nothing but mere shadows in the gloom
Lone wraiths that wane into the unrelenting void
Kings of old all gone and scattered in the wind
For the mighty and the poor, all shall fall

Through the nothingness we drift, falter and decay
Without your stellar omnipotence guiding our trail
Your voice shall tremor through the everlasting halls
In the echoes of your steps, we shall never be astray

Yours is the song that resounds in the streams and winds
Yours is the song woven into the fabric of the night

Ye shall
Darken the sun
Turn the moon to blood
Put out all the stars
Tear the heavens down

Tablets of creation
Shall be made anew
Devastating furor
Sanctifies the world of worms

We who wait veiled in the dark
Call out your name through the night

We who wait in the dark
