Track Name: Epiclesis
Harken me!
Oh slaves of god!
Your time has come!
I’m your downfall!

Serpents are my crown
I’m the flames of the sun
Fire and air
Shall sweeten my path

I am the flame, which burns in every heart of man
Which burns in every core of the stars
I am the life and the disposer of Life
Therefore the knowledge about me
Is the knowledge of death

I call upon
The ancient names
Of the elders
Darkness shall rise!

Rise! Azrael!
Angel of death – preserver of names

Rise! Samael!
Twelve-winged ruler of the serpent

Rise! Uriel!
Father of false worship – companion of Sabaoth

Rise! Leviathan!
Serpent of the seas – Bring forth damnation, herald the fall of

I am the flame, which burns in every heart of man
Which burns in every core of the stars

The earth will tremble, below my feet
No one shall live without my name
Engraved in skin
Track Name: Bringer of War
When on high no name was given to heaven
Nor below was the netherworld called by name
Apsu was their progenitor
And Tiamat was she who bore them all

Evil spirit! God of death!

They were mingling their waters together
No cane brake was intertwined
Nor thicket matted close
When no gods at all had been brought forth

None called by names, no destinies ordained
Then were the gods formed within these two

In the cella of destinies
The abode of designs
The most capable, the sage of the gods
The Lord was begotten

The mighty firstborn
Champion of his father
Hastener to battle
The warrior – Marduk!

In the midst of Apsu
Marduk was formed
In the midst of holy Apsu
Was Marduk formed!

Evil spirit! God of death!
Track Name: The last Sermon
I’ve travelled the realms beyond heaven and hell
Reaper of souls - ender of worlds
Feared slayer of kings – guardian of the path
I’ve shaped all your deepest beliefs

I was there from the beginning
I will exist at the end of all things
I‘ve stood witness to every feeble passing
I’ve stood witness to every great atrocity

In every strife
In every war
In every revolution
I have left my mark

Executioner at the gallows
A lone hunter
Soldier on the battlefield
Criminal in the shadows

All who live, know my name
All who oppose me, shall know

In every strife
In every war
In every revolution
I have left my mark

At the end, mine will be the last face that you see
Track Name: Serpent's Court
Through me the way to the suffering city
through me the everlasting pain
through me the way that runs among the Lost
Abandon all hope - You Who Enter Here

By passing the gates
I enter the realm where Lord Minos holds court
snake-tailed judge of those condemned
sniffing the blood of the wretched
to expose their sins

On the edge of this world, I’m longing for Charon
to ferry me into the fire
the cold, the everlasting darkness

A region where there is nothing that can give light
profound darkness

As I descend deeper
accompanied by virtuous pagans
I pass the hordes of Lucifer
hell beasts and fire-demons
weird worms, vile torturers

Sentenced to death – I have passed the gates
bereaved of existence - the path to hell awaits
cast out from heaven – my divinity has died
embraced by darkness – I decline the holy light
Track Name: Nergal, the raging King
God of Darkness, lord of war
Grand dragon - covered in entrails
Fill the channels with blood
Feast on the lifeblood of man

You set your face towards Kurnugi
The dark house, dwelling of Erkalla's god
To the house which those who enter cannot leave

Seven gates you have passed
Seven rituals you have prevailed

To the road where travelling has one way
The house where those who entered were
deprived of light
Where dust was their feast
and clay their bread

They were clothed, like birds, with feathers
They saw no light, they dwelt in darkness

You tore Ereshkigal’s robe away
Sodomized her womb
Stole her kingdom
Became her king

Raise up the dead here - Consuming the Living
Behold Nergal – King Of Darkness

Gatekeeper, Open Your Gate for Me
Track Name: Carnal Malefactor
These violent storms are sweeping away my bliss
No hope for rest and none for lesser pain

The vice of lust became so customary
That license is now a burden
Among these sufferers
There is no hope
That ever comforts them

Carnal malefactors are suffering in here
I witness the punishment
Accompanied by fear
No rest is granted in this abyss

Among these convicts I face my own sins,
That I’ve committed, they hunt me down

Here deep in this kingdom where the craving for flesh is a fear
I suffer with them in punishment

Amid the gust, the whirlwind, and the flaw
Of rain and hail-stones, sinners need not tell their sorrows

But I have to move on, on this wretched course
Darkness still calls me, that unutterable force
My body falls deep into coldness
Like dead bodies fall...
Track Name: The urge for Battle
In the fountain of chaos, at the edge of time
Where neither light nor darkness exist
Where time was born to guide the foolish
There I rule, there I reign

I am the torch
I am the vanguard
I am the stanchion
The zealous slaughterer
I am the venom
I am the wisdom
I am the scepter’s bearer
The urge for battle

When I rise from my dwelling
The equilibrium of heaven and earth will disintegrate

Bright day will turn to darkness
Whirlwinds will rise and the stars of heaven shall fall

Ill-winds will blow
And the eyesight of man will be darkened forever
Demons will rise and seize the race of man
The waters will rise and sweep across the lands
Track Name: Atonement in Blood
Through this Eucharist of living flesh
We summon you, almighty one
Come forth with madness
Trietenicus, Liber, Bacchus, Iacchus

Blessed be thou, twice-born god
Offspring of the winter solstice
Thracian god of ecstasy and terror
Atonement, guilt and death


Ecstatic from the east, we await
Orgiastic pleasures, bring them forth
Hail to flesh, hail to lust
Hail to sin, hail to glory

We conjure thee by the Fire of GIRRA
Rise, from the pits of ancient holocausts!

Loud-roaring and reveling son of Semele
Primeval, two-natured, Bacchic lord
Hearken to my voice, O blessed one
breathe on me in a spirit of perfect kindness.

Come, bull-faced god conceived in fire
Come, blessed and leaping god, and bring much joy to all

Thracian god of ecstasy and terror
Atonement, guilt and death

Track Name: Revelation 9:11
Hail! Apollyon!
King of the demonic locusts
Hail! God of the sun!
Conqueror of Christian souls

The fifth trumpet has sounded
A star is falling from heaven
Unholy wrath is unleashed
Armageddon has come

Hail! Abbadon!
God of death and pestilence
Hail! Falling star!
Lock-keeper of the bottomless pit

The seed of Adam withers
The futile lives of humanity torn apart
Their souls destroyed by tearing pain
Air and light turn into black

Scorpions and Snakes, enunciators of the end
horses prepared for battle, golden-crowned, a thundering roar
A spreading mass of darkness and wrath
Conquest, War, Famine, Death

Angel of the abyss!
Ominous be thy name!

From his throne of truth
He commands the end!
