The Betrayal 05:41
Tales, warn of a fate Death, reward that awaits Flesh, unbearably cold Curse, has begun to unfold Travel deeper, start to sink Your fear will forge the missing link Shackled now, you've set it free Horrors born of iniquity Bliss ends Wisdom Breathe, a sickening must Thoughts, poison your trust Fear, deadens your dreams Mind, splits at the seams Travel deeper, start to sink Your fear will forge the missing link Shackled now, you've set it free Horrors born of iniquity Bliss Ends Wisdom They say it's a lie Die The marsh is alive Rise Ice covers your limbs Salt sculpting your skin Lodge of infamy Enthroned in misery Travel deeper, start to sink Your fear will forge the missing link Shackled now, you've set it free Horrors born of iniquity Bliss Ends Wisdom They say it's a lie Die The marsh is alive Rise Conqueror now Sharp is my blade It shapes the truth In my domain Cold is my reign Strength in treason Fortess of ice Trapped but not bound Scry beyond walls Betrayal of all Warmth and of light Dusk brings clear sight

Lust for life Boils your blood And blurs your sight Lust for more Punishment For success Harbinger Of final rest All things peak And then decline The life's escaped Your Frankenstein A red masque Stretched thin across Empty eyes Skin dies Purification disease To reset humanity Carve your name at any cost On the tomb of history Makes you feel immortal Lust for life Boils your blood And blurs your sight Lust for death

Bicephalic 05:01
I am of spite, offspring of the Styx, figure chiselled by the scythe Constricted into one; soul symbiosis, bisection of hemisphere Dual mind, duelling for the share within, vestige of dichotomy failed Four keen eyes, kaleidoscopic sight, distorted vision set to strike Two tongues tied and twisted through a frenzy thirst, twice enticed by stimulus burst Inharmonious inner scream echoing from the merging streams, tritones peak and amplify Strangle or caress, conjugate phantom hands, tactile echos resonate Overwhelmed, our assembly wanes, to divide is to survive Chaos from chaos Entropic womb Sentenced in flesh, servant of the reptile brain, spitting venom left and right Serpent of self-interest, crowned king of infinite space, mirror trap horizon cage Basilisk antumbral gaze, petrify perpetual rays, unison division Purpose is in constant permutation, hate and hunger merge as one Walk the edge dividing light and shadow, howling at the moon and at the sun

Helm of Hell 07:43
Spawned in blackout spell, bewildered at the gates of Hell Eternal night, skeleton branches drain the light Walk this ground of fear, in your mind the path is clear Classical display of a fiendish realm fractures the dream All vision fades, irises blanch a milky-dead Immortal fate, prance around zombified state Vice the daemons in, fissure under tremored limbs Dig within the void, no trace of your traded soul Raise the iron to open the gate, rip the red sky with your blade Claim victory as the armies take form, rising with you above pain Step after step, knee deep in liquid death; ignore bleeding wounds and broken bones Collapsing skies open to a new world, steering yourself in the swirl Hundred souls under your command, share your fatality Pulled by the force of the cataract ahead, plunged into infinite flames Blaze of the abyss drags your remains, coating an armor of faith World speeds in black under words of decay, everything forms the nothing once it's gone Gather all the parts of your scattered self, puzzle up the pieces of your head Rolling wave of sinful absurdity flies about the limbs of logic lost Wrecked upon a solipsistic mental reef, illusions hardened Eden's garden Twisting fate of fallen sunken empty ship, illness is the nest in which they rest Euclidean ruins carried in the wind, frenzied destinations strobe Referential fades in the distance, precious North Star singularize Wiped out; memorize; intersperse, navigate apart infinitely Reckon by yourself the Equation, no truth is revealed across the Styx Don the Helm of Hell, face the dread of never was Take the Helm of Hell, steer straight and unbecome

Our pride is strong but meaningless and wasting Propelled along forced crusade no Holy Graal Flow with the throng iron filing forming fathoms Ten thousand strong white cap current mindless mobs Bleed as much as you can Until you no longer stand You were doomed from the first step It's a death you won't forget Your learn the facts nothing but a foundering marsh Your psyche cracks mirror gazed mirage dissolved No turning back chaos control your desires With primal acts the swirling swarm swallows its tail Bleed as much as you can Until you no longer stand You were doomed from the first step It's a death you won't forget Raze the world Spread your hate Self-control is optional Invincible Careless core Make of this walk your final stake Raze the world Spread your hate Invincible Careless core I rise alone, crusted blood a red mask blinds And now I've known, the sweet roar of running blood I claim this throne, to lead a new depraved horde And you'll be shown, the march begins with just one step

Bile 03:59
Seat of courage shadowed By false pretender's boast Cast adrift in a rotting raft Sweaty hands Grip the oar Nausea boils in the name of Bile Shallow river sinking deep Hallow haven in foul brew steep Emetic prayers The earth is vomiting Acrid filth Caustic wellspring Remove traces of life Holding on the stone Your body flies like a flag in the flow Embrace the pedestal anchor Pray you'll soon be a corpse Molten ablution Come eruption cleanse Kneel at the altar Address the devil In his own tongue Lay bare your guts Blackout enlightenment Summoned at the hall of kings Current drags your mind below Body stiffens but remains alive Drift…
7.
Equinox of Fall, you are the turning point Bury me again, the eternal battle And the winter comes, with its misery And the winter storm forms far beyond As the days contract and bind the night The fading colors desaturate to brittle grey And the sun fails, with its light and warmth And the sun falls, under winter's strength Splinters form from final rays, a freezing premonition Shiver at the sight of inevitable waning And the frost wafts into the colder air And the frostbites deepen, within; deepen... Light's last sigh brings twilight's myopia Squinting sidelong glances reveal night's tapestry And the darkness rises above, within the sky And the darkness stalks the barren ground
